    This is my first book by this author and I usually shy away from Christian fiction, but this book has changed my position on this.Saul had a strong dislike for interracial relationships, so much that he stopped speaking to his daughter after she married a black man. He had an accident that left him blind and bitter.Enter Annie, who was his therapist, he soon found himself falling for her but didn't know she was black. The author has done a great job of building up the characters and telling the story so that it was quite interesting.

    Although I enjoyed the original premise of this book, it had a few issues (ex.lag, flow, dialogue, and the lack of multidimensional characters). Other than that, it was a fairly decent sweet romance with a faith-based edge.After reading this book, I believe that this author will get better with time. Hopefully, she will consider a better editor and a Beta reading group via Goodreads. Overall, I enjoyed some parts of the book, but not all.Giving this one: 2.5 stars

    Colorblind is a clean, sweet story. It had a lot of Christian elements, but it fit with the story. This story is a parallel with a romantic twist of the biblical story of Saul the apostle and his journey in making peace with God. Saul was a widower who had issues with people of different races having relationships despite the fact that his best friend being black. He even severed ties with his daughter because of the color of the skin of the man that she married. He stubbornly stuck to his ways despite it making him miserable. One day he got into an accident and lost his sight. The story is centered on him being rehabilitated and learning to live with this new disability. Annie was Saul’s physical therapist. She was able to handle Saul and calm him like no one else could. Annie was a Christian, but she didn't preach to the Saul or even try to convert him. She just shared what she believed and it was during authentic times in the story. I liked the fact that Annie faced temptation once her and Saul grew closer; the author didn't write around human feelings that come up when a man and woman are attracted to one another. Annie and Saul grew to know one another during his rehabilitation and fall in love. Annie did not know of Saul’s prejudices, and by the time she did, she had already fallen in love. Saul couldn't see the woman, but just knew her by her attitudes and actions and he loved her. I think this is a good story for those who like Christian romances. The only issue that I had was with the ending, but it’s just personal preference of how I would have wanted the story to end, but I see where the author wanted to go with it. It’s a 3.5 star book for me.

    Saul Sweeterman is a man who was raised by people who had very strong opinions when it came to race. Therefore, he has applied those same opinions and put them into practice in his everyday life. Such opinions have caused him to lose some of the very people he should hold dear. When tragedy strikes, Saul experiences darkness like never before and it’s in these times when he is affected by the unexpected. Michelle Lindo-Rice delivers a message in this novella that is appropriate for all to read. As I read this book, I smiled, yelled and almost cried. I could feel the emotions that the characters displayed. This was such a page-turner. I loved every single chapter. The characters were great! The storyline was genuine. This was just a wonderful book! If you are looking for a quick read that is enjoyable and worth your time and money, Color Blind is your book! I give it Five Stars!!!!!

    This was an excellent read. My first by this author.This is Saul and Annie’s story. Saul is an angry man who has lost touch with his only child because of his colour prejudice. Through very unfortunate circumstances he meets Annie and the attraction grows between them. What Saul does not know is that Annie is black. He loves her character and cannot see her colour.This story does have a Christian theme and parallels are drawn to Paul (Saul) in the Bible when he lost his sight. This story is about love, forgiveness, letting go of stereotypes that parents imposed on a young mind and a past culture that still lives on today. The story speaks to the power of love and how love knows no colour bar.The story is a sweet read, no heat, which it does not need. The story is captivating and a page turner. I would highly recommend this story. I look forward to the next IR story from this author because this one was the bomb!

    Michelle Lindo-Rice has penned a fantastic story with a lesson in love, trust & matters of the heart. Growing up with a family that taught you that you should date within your own race, Saul Sweeterman turned his back on his only child and risked losing the 1 woman he’s loved since his wife departed. Aniyah “Annie” Hays was the only person who could handle Saul and his surly attitude, but was able to ignite a fire within him that caused him to love again. After falling in love with him, she’s made aware of his prejudice stance and flees. Do you have a choice about who your heart tells you to love or the assignment God places on your life? Saul & Annie’s story will make you laugh, cry and have you screaming at the pages. I really enjoyed this story. 5 stars for this page turner.

    Just A Little Faith!!!!Saul Sweeterman was a man brought up on the fact that race did matter to a certain extent and allows his beliefs to put distance between his love ones. But, when tragedy knocks at his front door he's forced to face the fact that he's been blind the entire time and sets out to get his family.....I must say the author did a great job by getting me involved to the point I wanted to beat Saul myself. It was a fast read for me and I always enjoy a book I can read without dull moments. I recommend this for any type of reader... 5 ☆☆☆☆☆!!!!!!!

    An excellent Christian love story. A story of true love. A love not seen but felt. Insecurities and prejudice could have kept these two apart, but thanks to a daughter who keeps it real and a woman of prayer who intercedes for the man she love , Saul and Anna embrace a love not chosen, but that just happened. A great book for Singles ministries. The author does a great job of incorporating stories of the bible. Her interpretation helped me really understand God's purpose in those stories.

    Color Blinded!This was my first Michelle Lindo-Rice novel. The book was excellent. Saul had to face some hard truths regarding his character to earn Annie's love and trust and to regain the love and respect of his daughter. All in all, a very satisfying read!

    awesome job Michelle!! I would have loved to have read a little to see Saul's relationship developed with Annie and how they would have handled the racial tension from family, friends, saints, and neighbors. Absolutely loved the book!

    When Love Strikes You Can't Stop It This was the first time I read something by Michelle Lindo-Rice, and I was not disappointed. Normally books have so much sex in them that the author tends to forget about the plot or should I say the meaning of the story. Saul was a man who no longer longer had his daughter in his life ... he had a granddaughter he had never met. Saul could not forgive his daughter for marrying a black man. When Saul decides to make contact with his daughter it's to late. This is where Annie his physical therapist comes in Saul comes to rely on Annie and the two of them form a close friendship that soon turns to love. Saul made a statement that marrying outside of your race just didn't happen, he said "it just isn't right". This is something that went all the way back to his great grandfather. So he closed his heart to ever doing that himself nor allowing his children. I think everyone should read this story so I have been very vague to not give anything out. Please read this.

    Hey, I do like romance books, but some have the same old standard - boy meets girl, girl or boy have issues, sometimes stupid and crazy issues, boy and girl work it through and live happily ever after. After you read about 10 books, it starts to get a bit boring. It's like those Harlequin romance books, they are good like Utz chips. You can't just stop at one. This was not any different, but an OK book, and I read it fast since I knew what the outcome was going to be. Saul, white guy who became blind after a car accident where he saw his daughter with her "black" husband and their bi-racial kid in the back, he got mad and lost control of the car.Aniyah, black nurse at hospital, who just happens to be the only person on the whole hospital can work with him to help him recover. He falls in love and so does she. He does not know she is black. You know what happens, he learns to forgive and go after her. Sweet and cute book. Quick read and enjoyable.

    Sub par writing...I gave this only one star because of the underdeveloped characters and the storyline itself. The dialogue was not written as one would speak, but how someone would write making it unbelievably corny. Even though the story is biblically based the story is very unrealistic. I am a romance novel junkie but just because the storyline is written to follow Christian principles, it doesn't mean that the storyline should be dumbed down and overly preachy which this story is. Make the characters real and their struggles real! This story was just not a great effort to convince me that the authors writing style is anything I would purchase in the future.

    This was a cute christian story. There were a few things I was not very pleased with but to each its own. The premise of the story was a really good one although the believability factor for the most part was well unbelievable. I also am not fond of the fact that she had to chase him at every turn and that she continually had to be the bigger person. I understand that she is a Christian but but dang... I felt he should have manned up more. Again cute story and I do not regret reading it.

    SweetFirst book I have read by this author. I will probably read other books by her. This is the story of Saul and Anna. Saul had been miss guided by his family to believe you can be friends with African-American but you are not to marry them. I do not want to be a spoiler and give a way the storysometimes when we are lead by the heart and not by what we can see we are a much happier person.

    The first half of this story was much better for me than the latter half. I completely disagreed with Annie's choice not to tell Saul that she's black knowing how he felt which left a very bad taste in my mouth for her. And Saul might have been good looking and rich but that didn't give him the right to treat people with the so much contempt and disrespect. This story was a meh for me.

    3.00 stars. The storyline of this book was similar to "Ironic" by Pamela Leigh Starr; but, in my opinion, not as well written. The characters in Color Blind engaged in dialogue that seemed forced and unnatural, Saul Sweeterman wasn't just a racist, he was also mean and in need of anger management as much or more than the physical therapy. Aniyah "Annie" Hays was tiresome and needy and fearful.

    I really enjoyed this book how the author brought in the biblical story of Saul on the road to Damascus. I lived how she showed love is truly color blind but I felt like I was left with lingering questions at the end. It was a quick enjoyable read, I just wanted a little more at the end.
