    Posted at Hearts on Fire ReviewsAt 35 pages, this is a quick read, but there is a lot of story packed into these pages. Aidan was scarred and blinded in a car accident involving a drunk driver. After extensive physical therapy, classes for the blind on independent living, and a handsome settlement from the accident, Aidan is now living alone and leading a very lonely existence.Zane is his on-again-off-again lover, who returns from his most recent European jaunt to learn the devastating news of Aidan’s accident.Aidan and Zane are such likable and believable characters. I loved Aidan’s determination to overcome his emotional and physical pain and desire to live an independent life. I also loved Zane’s exuberance and impulsiveness, shining his light on Aidan’s dark world. This story explores fear of commitment, coping with a disability, coming to grips with vulnerability, and asserting control. By learning, changing, and shedding old habits, Aidan and Zane grew to be better men, individually and as a couple. I enjoyed every moment with them.

    If anyone ask me which one is the worst MC I have ever read? I will said ZANE for sure.And after I read this part, he went down the hill and never recovered.“A lover!” Aidan spat. “Like anyone would want me now.”“Are you kidding me? You may have lost your sight but not your looks.” Zane said ???ok, so, if you are ugly and blind then you won't have chance in love? Shallow loser, that I could not care for him.

    Nice, but without much true chemistry in my opinion. Zane follows the same patterns he always has, Aiden does as well. They both have previously seemed satisfied knowing they've always loved each other but that it was acceptable for Zane to ditch Aiden for adventure - and other lovers - on a crazy whim.That just seems ... incredibly shallow to me. Zane takes advantage of Aiden in the fact that he knows Aiden will always be there for him when he comes back, and Aiden just rides along and LETS himself be taken advantage of.Despite that, the description of Aiden's blindness and the changes both Zane and Aiden have to make in order to 'fit' again. The concept is one that probably could have been exceptionally done with another pair of characters and slightly different circumstances.

    Very emotional short story about a pair of reunited lovers. Aidan has been blinded and scarred in a car accident. Zane, a wandering soul, didn't know his former lover had been in an accident when he comes back into his life. This was lovely. There was a lot of history between the two men and a tremendous amount of chemistry. Some really sweet moments as well as very heart-breaking in some places as Aidan and Zane work through the issues of their relationship.

    Zane was not deterred by the scars that Aidan harbored on his body by the accident or his sudden blindness that is irreversible. To a degree Aidan is insecure and feeling like an invalid till Zane walks back into his life. Zane’s had enough of his gypsy wandering ways or had he? And returns to the one man his mind won’t let him forget. Aidan lets Zane back into his home, his heart and his bed. These two men compliment each other in and out of the bedroom and give each other balance, a purpose I believe not only Aidan needed, but Zane needed as well.For a short story this one is very endearing and the intimacy between the two characters, Zane and Aidan is heartwarming. Mild BDSM and just what any doctor would order on a stressed out soul needing to sit back with a good book and relax. A low keyed easy, light read is exactly how I would describe this one as being.

    This was too short for Claire Thompson, in my opinion. This is a writer who gave me good reads with The Cowboy Poet and Submission Time Two. This time around I just didn't feel the same depth of development I'm used to from her. Both characters were flat and the story was rushed. It killed me to say that.

    4.5starsBLIND FAITH is also another little gem by Claire Thompson. The book surrounds Aidan, who after a horrific accident is left blind. When his on again off again lover Zane comes back into his life – he is not only given a shot at something he had actually given up on, but he is put in the position of doubting that any sort of togetherness will last for only a period of time and he will end up going back to that lonely guy left all alone in his corner..Zane Wilde is Aidan’s best friend and he love him, really love him, but Zane has wanderlust and cannot resist the urge to follow where the wind blows. Aidan knows this – but this time Zane might just surprise him.This was quite a refreshing read for me for a few reason. I like books where the protags are somehow physical challenged and I am always curious to see what an author does with this character. Aidan is not only blind but functioning about as normal as you can get and I thought that was one of major selling point of this books for me. He had passed on from the “why me’ sort of mind set and has taken charge of his life. When Zane comes back into it he finds things he used to accept and roll with, he now finds an inner strength that refuse to roll over this time and accept and this makes him such a wonderful hero to like.Zane is not bad either, a fun loving guy who has assumed too much and taken too much for granted all his life. After hearing Aidan’s news, it was like a flash bulb moment for him and I fell in love with Zane for how much he stepped up to the plate and became a man.Together the guys are sweet, they explore, they make time for each other and there is a gentleness to them that somehow suited them. I quite liked the fact that Zane was willing to bend enough to explore what he cannot see and Aidan was confident enough to ask for what he wants.There was no dark shadows in this book, nothing to cringe about or break out the knifes for. This was just a read about men figuring out that sometimes the best of themselves his giving the one person they love all the love and support that they can and not expect anything in return…I very much enjoy this book…

    Aidan and Zane had an open relationship. Zane is like a gypsy and when he feels the need to wandered, Aidan can't hold him back. So for seven years was like that for them, blissful periods together than Zane left and when Aidan didn't expect him, he returned in Aidan's life, expecting him to be ready to reopen his arms for him.But last time Zane left, soon after Aidan had a terrible car accident, and now he is blind and horrible scarred in body and soul. He no more is expecting for Zane to return, cause he can't convince himself that someone could still want him as a partner. But Zane returns and he still wants Aidan. More, he now has realised that he has almost lost Aidan for good, and he doesn't want to risk it again. The only thing he has to do is convince Aidan of the same.The story is not very long, less than 60 pages, but it's very enjoyable. I like these two and the relationship they had. It's a relationship that can exist only if there is real love, and a truly comprehension of your partner's needs. And if before was Aidan that had to comprehend Zane's needs, now is Zane that should put apart his gypsy soul, to love and live with Aidan. But Aidan is not a weaker man in needing of a caretaker, he is still a proud man that only need a sparks of hope in his life and a reason to fight again and again.http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0030CML2K/?...

    A short story which nearly had me in tears at one point, this is the tale of two men in their late twenties, the home bird, Aiden and Zane, his wandering, on and off again lover. Zane comes back into Aiden's life, almost a year after a terrible car accident has mangled his body and deprived him of his sight. Aiden is a mess, both physically and mentally. The scars that cover his body are nothing compared to his mental anguish about losing his sight, his longed for life and he struggles to keep going from day to day.Zane, is terribly shocked at the state of his friend, scarred, too thin, with no self confidence, Zane sets out to try and bring life and colour back into Aiden's life. I would have liked some scenes from Zane's point of view, to try and understand how upset he was at Aiden's misfortune and how his thought processes concluded how he was going to help heal Aiden's soul, but overall the book was well written, dealing sensitively with a damaged MC whose life changed forever in a heartbeat. I will definitely look for other books by this author - thanks for reading my review.

    God I'm a bitch sometimes ... have just re-read this story and I think my original review is a bit narky and off-putting ... this story is a wee bit saccharine and fluffy but I must have read it after over-dosing on fluff because when I read it this time, it wasn't too bad ... I do prefer Claire Thompson's darker stuff but this was a not too horrible quick read.Original review ... This was a little bit too melodramatic for me...you could almost imagine swooning with hand to brow with some of the vapid, histrionic dialogue & internal angst. There was a mild BDSM element to the book which had an interesting twist...(view spoiler)[having the perceived 'weaker' character become the alpha in the bondage games was an unusual twist to to the usual kinky bedroom games (hide spoiler)]...Overall this was a pleasant read but not a book I'm likely to revisit.

    Great short M/M novella about two on-and-off lovers who haven’t seen each other for over a year. When one of them returns from one of his wanderings around the world and want to meet the other again, it turns out that his lover has been in a car accident almost a year ago. He was badly injured and lost his sight permanently. This comes as a shock and changes their relationship. I loved the dynamic of this couple. The heroes are hot and have a good chemistry going on. Their loving is sweet and Ms. Thompson knows how to develop a story well. It was too bad that this wasn’t longer, that’s the only thing I disliked besides the overly clichéd ending (it involves a cruise ship, need I say more?).Look here for my selection of a sexy, smutty scene from Blind Faith: http://erotromreader.blogspot.com/201...

    I enjoy books that tackle real life issues, and this one was no exception dealing with the issue of blindness. The main characters had a prior relationship at the beginning of the book, but it had always been on again / off again. Zane was coming to a point in his life where he finally realized he wanted the stability of a permanent relationship and that Aidan had always been his love. Aidan, on the other hand, knew from long ago that Zane was the one for him. I liked that Aidan actually became more independent after he and Zane reconnected and was able to get beyond his self-image concerns - it was nice to see his growth in that way. There is a little bit of very light BDSM content in this book. It's done very well and definitely enhances the story. I would have loved to see this story played out in a longer version, but it was nice!

    3 Stars ~ Zane has always had a wanderlust, calling himself a gypsy. Whenever he begins to feel boxed in, he picks up and heads off on an adventure, but he always comes back to Aidan. Zane's been gone a year, and when he finds Aidan again he's shocked to learn he's been in a horrible car accident that has not only scarred his beautiful body by taken his eyesight. This causes Zane to wake up and realize that he could have lost Aidan forever and he's not willing to ever risk that again. They're happy together, until Zane's offered an opportunity on a Caribbean island.This is a sweet and sexy love story of two young men who are reunited. Both Zane and Aidan have grown up in their love for each other. While the accident was a tragedy, it also taught them how to fully give and trust in each other. Nicely written.

    It's been over a year since Aidan was blinded in a terrible accident. He's living on his own, with a little help from his parents, but he's pushed his friends away. Aidan doesn't think he will ever have another lover, especially since the one man whom he loves is someone who floats in and out of his life. Zane, the man that Aidan wants, leads what he calls a gypsy lifestyle. He never stays anywhere for long, but when he returns to the States and to visit Aidan, he realizes how much he has almost lost.This one is short at only 35 pages, but it's a sweet read about two guys whom I found to be quite likable. Thompson has delivered a great story with some hot love scenes. I definitely recommend it if that is the type of story you enjoy. It's a keeper for me.

    3.5 starsSure, there are sex scenes even earlier in the story. But I think this is the first time I read a character that is blind and disfigured. I know I haven't read a lot of books in this genre, but it's oh so refreshing. For a novella, that are only 60+ pages or so, this story packs a nice emotion for me to love. Especially when the two characters are talking about their feeling. The sex scenes are tender too. AND, I always have soft spot for stories about the one that gets away. Lovely story.

    Nothing against the story, personally just didn't engage with the characters enough. One of the things I did like was the author touching on the subject of wanderlust, something that I find quite interesting. I would've maybe liked a longer story exploring that a little more and it's effect on their relationship - even though, the author did address this in the story.They were sweet, both of them, and I liked how they adapted their sex life in a way that fulfilled parts of them both that they hadn't been expecting.

    After a car accident that caused his blindness and covered his body with scars, Aiden lives alone in a spartan little flat. That's when his once-on once-off lover Zane decides to come back from wherever he went this time. I can't say I liked Zane much. He was a selfish prick and all his redeeming qualities didn't help the matter. Aiden was great in everything aside for his willingness to let Zane do what he will, because that made him too much of a doormat for my liking. Overall, it was a nice read even if it didn't endear me to this couple.

    This was short and sweet. Aiden has lost his sight in an accident and his on-again-off-again boyfriend, Zane, has returned to take care of him. It's a sweet and tender love story. You also see Aiden coming to terms with his disability and scars. There are also light elements of BDSM, but it's very very light so if you don't like that kink you really have nothing to worry about. All of this is in a book that's i think 17 pages. Would be great to see more of them. They make a cute couple.

    3.5*Very quick short book about past lovers finding each other again. Aidan loves Zane and waits for him as Zane flits around the world but always comes back to Aidan. Finally the wanderlust is over and the two are together again for good. I really liked how Aidan's scars and blindness did not detour Zane in his love.

    This was a good story although I would have liked it to be longer. I think these characters and their lives together these last seven years could have used a lot more fleshing out to be able to get a good grasp on these men.Overall it was good, but I guess I just wanted more.

    A very touching story. I wasn't sure if i was a Zane fan in the beginning. I couldn't imagine loving someone but walking away several times over the year when things got to heavy. Zane proved his worth with his encouragement with Aiden and slowly won me over.

    3.5 starsI really enjoyed this nice short story. I liked the development of Aidan and Zane's relationship from being friends and casual lovers to a committed and truly loving couple. I also liked seeing Zane change from a wandering free spirit to a mature and steady man.

    This novella had some very sweet and tender moments in it but I was never completely convinced that Zane was cured of his wanderlust. I know he loved Aidan more than he could love anyone else and I can only hope they are HEA.

    I don't know,I keep hoping Aidan would break up with Zane and meet someone else,and maybe then Zane could try to win him back...I just don't like it that they just stay together like this,can't really believe in Zane's devotion.

    A warm and sweet story that relied on the situation for it's emotional heft rather than detailing the relationship.
