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.
I found Through These Eyes to be even better than the first book in the series (Blind Faith). The author digs even deeper into Isaac and Carter’s relationship.
The story picks up 6 months after Blind Faith. Carter has moved in with Isaac and Isaac’s bond with his dog Brady is growing stronger. Unfortunately, things between Isaac and Carter aren’t going as smoothly. The relationship is very one-sided. Carter is the one who has to keep comprising so he can fit into Isaac’s life.
Isaac meets this guy Josh through his work and Josh is nothing but trouble. Carter is insanely jealous of the budding friendship between the two men and feels that there is something about Josh that just isn’t right.
Josh starts putting ideas into Isaac’s head about this operation that’s been having success down in South America and it could restore Isaac’s sight. This is a big contention between Carter and Isaac. Carter believes that this surgery is some sort of scam and he doesn’t want Isaac to go through with it.
This book is more angsty than the first one. There were times when I really wanted to smack Isaac in the head. He is a jerk throughout the book but at the end of the book he ends up baring his soul to Carter which I found to be such a beautiful moment.
We get a good epilogue, which picks up three months down the road. I was pretty satisfied with how the story ended. Even though one of the main characters was pretty unlikable throughout a good portion of this book, I couldn’t put it down. This book made me feel all kinds of emotions from laughter to anger and even some tears but the real theme through this whole book is hope. Hope is a very powerful thing and both our characters have it in spades!! I cannot recommend this series enough!!!!
