I luckily came across a review for this book on Goodreads.com. The reviewer had some interesting posts and we had numerous books in common. This particular book was raved about and given 5 out stars, needless to say I was intrigued. Crazy thing is this book is not currently published. I was able to download a version free online. Let me just say this book is so damn good! I will buy it the moment Ingrid Diaz publishes it.
The plot is slow, not slow in a bad way, slow in a buildup that you just don’t see a lot. I always feel like a lot of the books I read these days have to wrap it up pretty quickly. The author takes her time, and it is so worth it.
The two protagonists are Kris, an NYU art student, and Julianne, a famous TV/movie star. The two become email pals after Julianne buys on of Kris’s paintings while visiting New York. She decides to send the artist an email to let her know how much the piece means to her. A series of back and forth emails, the ladies turn into friends, that seek advice and encouragement. Its very sweet and endearing. The story turns romantic as Kris and Julianne meet. Their face to face interactions are witty, angsty, and at time hilarious.
You cannot help but love them separate and together. Read this book! http://ingriddiaz.com/books/the-blind-side-of-love/
