I have received a free e-copy of the book Blindsided by Narc Narcisse to review. To find out more about the author, you may see his Goodreads page.
Here is the book blurb.
“I’m excited, I’m nervous, I’m curious. What will he be like? What will he look like? How tall will he be?” Tonight, Emma embarks on her first-ever blind date. Mark’s not what she expected. Emma’s not what he expected. Whoever set these two up knew this beforehand…1-Tattoos. 2-Wine. 3-Pills. 4-Blindfolds. 5-Handcuffs. 6-Sex. In twenty-four hours, Emma experiences five of the six; Mark, two. This innocent rendezvous has guilt written all over it!
I wasn’t sure whether I would like this book as the blurb makes it sound a bit kinky, but as the author had assured me it was not an erotica genre read, I decided to give it a go. And so pleased that I did.
The story starts with a blind date between Emma and Mark arranged through the secretive referral only BlindSided dating company (BSD). Neither of them is what the other expected, as BSD deliberately blindside their clients, which they twigged once they met, but the two of them certainly clicked.
However they are only two of a larger number of characters, all central to the story, which encompasses death and rape, not graphic through. So many suspense filled twists and turns throughout, with plenty of sub-plots too. What a page turner.
But I wasn’t entirely sure I liked the style in which this book was written with narrative and flashbacks interspersed, but luckily it didn’t detract too much.
Blindsided is available on Amazon currently priced at £7.86 in Kindle format and is also available in paperback. A gripping read. Highly recommended.
