About the book:
When all your plans fail, can you find the courage to follow a new path?
Lissa Montgomery is on track to be Boston’s top financial analyst—or she would have been, if her misogynistic boss had ever given her a chance. Suddenly jobless, Lissa has little hope for her life going according to plan. But then she meets handsome and charming Brennon, a workaholic who is just as driven as she is. In order to spend more time with him when he’s not at the office, she agrees to look after his blind roommate, Steve, after he’s hit by a car.
Where Brennon is sweet and thoughtful and practically perfect, Steve is grumpy and abrasive and refuses to find a reason to be happy in his newly sightless life. Getting to know Brennon, though, means being stuck with his best friend too, even if he is a little rough around the edges.
But as Steve starts to open up and finally live again, Lissa realizes there’s a lot more to life than climbing the corporate ladder. And she has to wonder who is really blind, since Steve seems to be the only one who can see what is right in front of him.
In Front of Me is a sweet contemporary romance that functions as a standalone, with recurring characters from the rest of the Simple Love Story series.
This was my first time reading anything by this author. I was very impressed with this book. It didn’t take me too long to get into this story, and once I did, I didn’t want to stop. I read it in one sitting. It is part of a series, but can be read as a stand alone. I didn’t feel like I missed too much by not reading the other books yet. I do want to go back to read the others too.
I liked Lissa’s character and Steve’s too. Their story had a bit of the Me Before You vibe to it. I really enjoyed that. I look forward to reading more from this author!
