Tatum Elliot is a successful writer on a hit television show, lives in an Upper East Side apartment and loves her life. She wouldn’t change a thing. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have a choice. She's losing her sight. Tripping over her tongue and her heels, Tatum all too quickly realizes that the things which appeared so important before are slowly slipping away leaving room for what really matters. With the support of her best friends, family and colleagues, she begins to see that there’s much more to life… and herself. When Ben Harris enters her life as her new personal assistant, she can’t tell if it’s his good looks and charm that are working on her libido, or his kind and helpful nature working on her heart? Whatever it is, neither one of them can resist it. As her vision fades out, a world of love and happiness just might…Fade In. Fade In is a contemporary-romance novel about laughing through your tears and telling life to, quite frankly, “Suck it.” This novel contains sexual situations that the author may or may not have tried at home… for your safety, of course. Research is research.
A touching and humorous story about a girl who is slowly losing her sight and a guy who can help her deal with it. I loved Tatum and Ben. They've become one of my very favourite fictional couple. Overall this book is well written with a good plot and likable characters.
Tatum has a successful career and her life is not so bad either. Unfortunately she has a disease because of which she is loosing her eyesight. Her doctor advises her to un-complicate her life and get some help. She is absolutely against therapy. But decided to hire PA. She is an independent woman who does not like accepting help from others. She realises this when she broke up with him. But she doesn't regret it and they both think it to be the best decision for them.
On the day she was interviewing for personal assistant, Ben knocks on her door and although she thought he was overqualified and may be a little too sure of himself, still she hires him. Ben is a good guy and very helpful. Both are really attracted to each other and well we can imagine where that was headed.....
The book is so good that it made me emotional. There were a lot of laugh-out-loud moments. Its a heartwarming story which all romance lovers will enjoy immensely. I gave this book 5-Stars.
I only met her briefly on one occasion, but she left a pockmark in my mind. She was dynamite and she had an indefinitely long fuse that never stopped burning. Those around her never knew when she would blowup, not looking away because she was a mess who was fun to watch.
I hope she's still like that when my mind drifts back to her through the years that pass by.
Maybe I should have shared the cab. Got in with her. Stayed with her.
I don't know.
Who ever really knows that it is the first time, the first time you meet? It's only the first time after there's a second time. Up until then, it's just an only. One moment to the next could alter everything.
Every decision pushes you or pulls you where you're going in life.
At times, after running into her, when I felt like I was pushing everyday to do better, to get further, make a bigger difference, and like I was getting nowhere and I was just spinning my tires, I’d think of her.
She pulls life along. That girl was making life keep up with her.
And that's too special to forget.
M. Mabie lives in Illinois, NOT Chicago, with her rock-star husband. (True story.) She loves writing for Fifty5Cents Book Blog, which she owns and operates- at the moment quite poorly. She's a proud member of the Indie Author Romance Author Chicks writing group where she maintains a high standard of professionalism and lady-like maturity- or not. She cares about politics, but won’t discuss them in public. She uses the same fork at every meal, watches Wayne’s World while cleaning, and lets her dog sleep on her head. M. Mabie has never been accused of being tight lipped or shy. She’s THAT girl. (She doesn't usually speak in third-person, but surprisingly does when weirded-out about writing her bio.)
