Six months after we last met Carter Reece and Isaac Brannigan, they’re still very much in love. Moving in together, moving forward, life for these two is great until some life changing events occur.
Isaac has a frightening setback and Carter’s world starts to unravel. Things become even more complicated and start to change for both men when Isaac’s new colleague enters the picture.
As Isaac struggles for what he really wants, it might just cost him what he needs the most.
Through These Eyes kind of ruined the first book Blind Faith for me. The story digs deeper into Carter and Isaac’s relationship and personalities, and it is ugly. (It’s not Carter whom I’m talking about, though.)
Their relationship is very unbalanced. While Carter is amazingly loving and understanding and caring with Isaac, Isaac is hurtful, insincere, and selfish. Blindness is not an excuse for everything.
The story is about a relationship crisis of the two of them, and this crisis has many causes. One of them is an attempted fraud against Isaac, and though it is valid and realistic, his behavior is so outrageous that even the victimization of him couldn’t make me feel sorry for him, or sympathize with him. And I really didn’t like how easily things were solved at the end. Oh, and the airport scene… How cliché!
The repetitive writing style exhausted me: almost all the humor is based on the banters between the characters. It can be funny, sure, but after a while it is simply irritating.
There were some sweet and funny moments, that’s why the two stars. But overall I’m disappointed.
“He definitely knows we’re together.” I smirked at them. “Last weekend when he was here, I made sure I took my shirt off in front of him so he could see love bites all over me.”
Carlos shook his head, but Hannah laughed. “Really?”
I laughed and nodded. “I even had fingernail scratches down my back.”
Hannah clapped her hands. She seemed genuinely proud of her brother. “Oh, my God. Isaac’s an animal.”
Carlos was smiling now. “Lucky Carter’s a vet.”
