Briefly the story involves a detective who is blinded in the line of duty and his life is put into risk as he tries to solve the case. He reluctantly realises that he needs help from the female lead and his relationship with her starts off very resentful of her help and then as they go through the trials of survival their feelings warm for each other.

I loved this book. Very gritty, realistic characters, a strong male principal and a plain female lead, which is refreshing for a romance novel. At one point I was just finishing up my reading and about to put my light out when something happened out of the blue in the story and I had to keep reading and that has never happened to me before. The actual plot isn't the strongest but I was quite glad as the chemistry between the two main characters was so interesting and gripping I wouldn't have wanted to story to take me away from them being the focus. Was very disappointment when I finished it and to be honest I think there is room for a follow on book.

Blind curve by Annie Solomon was the first book I have read by this author but it won`t be the last. I would best describe it as romantic suspense/thriller, but it is extremely well plotted and unlike a lot of the books within this genre the characters are believable and well written. I wanted to keep reading as the story developed,because I wanted to find out what happens next.
The story revolves around the sudden blindness of main character, Danny, and his developing relationship with his therapist, Martha.As an undercover cop, Danny has been in danger before, but now he has to learn to trust each another, because they are being hunted for what Danny has witnessed in the past.Frustrated and angry, Danny has to learn to cope with his blindness, while trying to solve the problem of why someone is determined to kill him.
I liked the way that Solomons developed the plot avoiding the obvious and introducing a level of unexpected thrill, that made this a really gripping read.It is a little different from the usual romantic thrillers I have read in having such a strong, rather plain, female lead, instead of one of the weak, clingy types.
READ AND ENJOY!

A Strong Suspense Read Without Pretty Characters!!! 12 Jan. 2005
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ms. Solomon has penned a story that has been a long time in coming. Neither main character is perfect. Our hero Danny is blind, and our heroine Martha is homely. Together they find a way to deal with what life has given them and at the same time find love. This is not to say that this is easy...it's not, but they deal with what life deals them and come out in the end better.

Danny has not had an easy life. He watched his mother work herself into an early grave. He made a promise the day they scattered her ashs that he would take care of his younger sister Beth. He has done just that but when a police bust goes bad Danny receives an injury that does not appear right away but when it does his whole life will change. Days later he is in the middle of another deal when the lights go out. He can see nothing. Danny who is a cop and needs to see in order to do his job is now blind and the doctors tell him that in all probablity he won't see ever again. He now must re-learn everything from dressing to eating. Martha is going to help him learn provided he tries. He is not willing to give up yet. This is only a temporary thing it has to be.

Martha went to school with the beautiful Danny. He is drop dead gorgeous and would not give her a second thought if he could see her. Well, he can't and she has a job to do. Teach him how to be self sufficient. While at his house teaching how to get around an intruder comes and attacks Danny. Martha is injured and now the two are on the run. Someone wants Martha and Danny dead but who? Is this from one of Danny's old cases or is it a new case. While on the run they are both dependant on the other. Danny teaches Martha that physical looks although importanat are not the only way a person can fall in love. Marthat teaches Danny that even though you may like to stand on your own two feet, it's not a bad thing to need help. Can they stay one step ahead of a killer to realize a happy ending?

This was a very good book which did not rely on beautiful people to tell the tale. As a result Danny and Martha are two characters that readers can relate to. The story line was a fast paced one with a fair amount of description regarding the changes that Danny had to make in order to function, as well as the suspense storyline on who was trying to kill them and why. Ms. Solomon's descriptive way of writing showed us how frustrating Danny's situation was and as a result this was one of my favorite parts of the story. I could see and feel his struggle and frustration. This was truly a very good book and I look forward to reading her back list. Ms. Soloman is an author I have no problem recommending.

A book to enjoy and learn from 11 Mar. 2005
By Occasional Critic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I bought this book because the plot sketch on the back cover sounded different and interesting. I was not disappointed. This story throws a curve to readers of romantic intrigue by introducing a compelling true life drama: the pain and struggle of someone suddenly faced with blindness. It's clear the author did her research because she authentically portrays the scope of the tragedy as well as the path to recovery -- not of sight, but of life, of independence in a world gone dark. I also was impressed by the detail and authenticity of the police procedural elements of the story. Solomon seems to know enough about how cops work and talk to make her characters believable. I've given the book 4 stars because I thought the ending was a little too pat (could she really get over all the pain of his abandonment in the span of just one conversation?!), and because I thought the father's sudden interest in his daughter was never explained -- seemed a little too out-of-the-blue to ring true.

Imperfect or not, I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys real suspense, a tension-filled romance, and who likes to broaden their perspective by learning something new.

A real life story and a keeper 26 Feb. 2005
By stacey renee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've never read annie solomon's books before as I am not a fan of contemporary writing. But this back cover blurb really drew me to this book. And it lives up to every expectation. It is well written and fast paced. The characters have depth that makes them touchable. It's always a bit tough to have the hero prettier than the heroine but we can't all be gorgeous! These 2 characters show over and over how to make lemonade out of lemons and what is most important in life......It is just excellent and I highly recommend it!

Ok, but not great 20 Jun. 2009
By bijou2311 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Martha had a crush on Danny in high school, and that hasn't changed now that they are all grown up. Danny is experiencing what may or may not be temporary blindness due to a stroke caused by hitting his head and Martha is a mobility instructor. They are thrown together again as danger stalks Danny and Martha.

Sound dramatic enough? Well it was pretty far fetched to me. I get the plain-Jane had a crush on the cute jock and he wasn't awful to her in high school. However, he has turned into a self absorbed jerk of an adult - seriously, there wasn't a lot about him I liked. Also, Martha was a bit too one dimensional for my liking. I think her father would have been interesting to know more about, but we never know why he is so comfortable on the harsher side of life...

Basically, there were a lot of plot holes, and some very loosely strung together scenes. The possibilities for this story were there, but the execution just wasn't solid. I have read a few other books by this author and always feel the same way. That being said, it wasn't an awful book by any means. As another reviewer mentioned, it does the trick if you have nothing else to read. I have a feeling I will give the author a few more tries, but her books will be ones that I check out and put at the bottom of my pile to read. I prefer Andrea Kane's newer works, Michael Prescott, Anne Frasier, Karen Rose, Lisa Jackson, Tami Hoag, etc...

Wonderful romantic suspense without perfect people. 28 July 2005
By TSchlaack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Martha Crow is a strong loner who is in some ways still hiding behind her sadness of her youth. She was known as Scarecrow and teased about being tall and her looks (or lack there of). Her mother deserted her and her father after he was in an accident that caused him to loose use of his legs, throwing Martha into adulthood rather early.

Danny is a tough cop who has the most amazing eyes. He was a "tough guy" in high school but he was also looking out for his sister and his mother. He has been an undercover cop now for a number of years and also doesn't seem to keep any women around for more than a few months.

Danny and Martha are thrown together when he looses his sight. After being hit he suddenly is blind and Martha is a therapist who teaches blind people how to live and take care of themselves. While Danny doesn't know who she is she immediately is again drawn to him, as she has never really gotten over the crush she had on him in high school. The problem is that someone wants Danny dead and when Martha sees this person they suddenly want her dead also. This is where the adventure begins. They are spirited off to a safe house by his supervisors and then thing go even further wrong and they are on the run for their lives.

I have to say one of the most compelling things about this book is that Martha doesn't suddenly transform into a beauty. This is a story about 2 survivors who finally find each other and come together to make a wonderful team. But, will Danny blow it all due to his pride. The story is well written and the first by AS that I have read (going to read the others now). Characters are real and you can see how they react to things as normal people would.

I recommend this book to all who like romantic suspense.
