Reading... Undone By His Touch, by Annie West
But every now and then, you'll come across an author, and it doesn't matter what they've written, they suck you in from the first page and won't let you go until you've read every last page.
I got the copy of this book, signed by Annie (fellow RWAus member) after being involved with the RWAus online Claytons Conference two weekends ago.
My thought process was pretty much "well, I've got it, might as well see what its like" and didn't really think I'd get through much more than two or three chapters. How wrong I was!
This is a classic Beauty and The Beast type story, with the hero on the verge of becoming a recluse because he is blind, injured and scared from a tragic accident, which also claimed the life of his younger brother.
Annie's writing is seamless, you can lose yourself in the story, because the words flow so easily. There's nothing worse than trying to enjoy a story where bad or clunky writing keeps pulling you out of the "world" you want to become immersed in.
I have nothing bad to say about this book. It was just fantastic, and I'm now off to see what other Annie West books I can track down.
