Serena was only fifteen when four teenage boys dragged her inside a cold, dark cave and robbed her of her innocence. Though her phobia of men and the loss of her eye sight are constant reminders it happened, Serena has no memory of the brutal attack. Now at age twenty-two, she is ready to conquer her fears and lets an old high school friend rent out the upper floor of her ...more

Two days before Serena's fifteenth birthday, she is viciously raped by four boys from her high school, while at a party. That event leaves her blind and without the memories of what really happened that night.

This book was so moving. I couldn't tear myself away from it. Serena has been in love with Will since before her attack. When Will moves into her home (thanks to her aunt who owns the house) he also helps her to remember and to overcome the fear that she always carries around with her. I ju

I just could not connect to the main characters and there was something missing that ultimately affected my overall enjoyment of the story. Also I had a big issue with the hero...At the time of the "big" incident involving heroine the hero was stupid enough to get tangled in the heroin's sister scheme...He new what sort of a girl she was, but still when she kissed him in the woods he did not pushed her away and participated in the kiss whilst being in love with the heroine...hmmmmm....H

Serena... Strong, Stupid, Loving, Amazing, Wonderful, Brave, A warrior and A fighter.
I loved her.
“Being brave doesn’t mean you’re not afraid, It means forging ahead in spite of being so scared your insides are shaking.”
Blind Faith is Serana's story about her painful past and her present. How a Knight in Shining Armor comes in and sweeps her off her feet.

“What do you feel, Serena?”
“Your heart,” she squeezed out, “it…it’s racing.”
“Because of you.”


This was another sporadic read for me. It was a freebie on Amazon a couple days ago and the blurb just intrigued me. Plus I found the cover to be very hauntingly beautiful, too; as it turns out, the story was very similar. There were so many things I enjoyed about this story. The Hero, Will, is AMAZING. He’s patient, loving, sweet and has loved our heroine, Serena since she was fourteen years

This the first book I've read from this author and I wasn't impressed. I really wanted to like this book but I couldn't stand the way the author portrayed the sister,yes I get that she was going for a spoiler,self centered, evil character but the attempt fell flat and turned out amateurish,imo.

Serena (h) has finally moved out of her parents house and into a rental house that her aunt owns. That may not be such a huge event to some but for Serena it took every ounce of courage she could dredge up

Everything that could possibly happen to this heroine is thrown into the mix - a trauma related disability, naive and over-protective parents, an understanding aunt, a devoted lover who has secrets, truly horrible, stereotype of a sister whom the parents haven't "got" after twenty + years of being a manipulative liar - and of course the heroine - fortunately a likable one and her dog, the most engaging character of the lot.

Overall, I am ambivalent about this novel. I read it right through and it

Blind Faith 4.5*
I'd like to say this was a fairytale read in the sense that it had the heroine, villain and happy ever after. Though it had those elements it was no fairytale to read.

I thought the writing was intense, like getting inside their heads, seeing and feeling every thought, touch and emotion for myself!!!!
The story was sad and beautiful, it was good to find out the reasons why along the way instead of a big reveal but I did find myself rush reading those repeats. That said I thought Wi

I have mixed fillings about Blind Faith. I'm not one who usually has a hard time jumping into a "willing suspension of disbelief ". For a good story - but I had a hard time swallowing that Will had waited off in the wings for seven years for a girl he fell for - but never had a relationship with when she was 15. That said, it was and interesting plot - though the outcome and the path there was fairly predictable. What saved it was how much I liked Will and Sirina. All was almost too perfect - bu ...more

This is a ridiculous read. Before I got halfway I started to lose momentum. The prose is just so stilted and annoying to read. There's so much inner monologue and the hero just analysing the heroine trying to figure out where to make his move. Even if he is sincere and has a good heart his lines are just so cheesy and he sounds like a conman.
Though sometimes his con can be quite funny.

“It’s simple really. If the voices only come after I kiss you, then the only logical solution is to never stop.

Initially a sad story but one that keeps you gripped from begging to end and what a beautiful ending it is.

Serena is brutally raped at an outdoor party by four young lads, because of the trauma of this event it leaves her blind. Will who has a crush on Serena finds her in quite a mess. He is so upset by this that he goes in search of the lads and takes matters into his own hands which I think anyone would under these awful circumstances.

Will adores Serena and over the years keeps a watchful eye

This book was horrible, not the book sorry but Mckinley what a self centered, manipulative, conniving slut bitch !! How can she be so spiteful !! Thank god for Will he is the sweetest guy ever, he is exactly what Serena needed to finally face her past and slowly but surely finAlly put it behind her. He helped her find the strength to face her nightmares to actually talk about them and not keep pushing them deeper in her mind so she could finally let go and be happy. His strength to just be there ...more

Wow, this book was incredible. Loaded with crazy emotions but ended with hope and renewed faith. I was taken on an emotional rollercoaster but it was one I thoroughly enjoyed! Especially because Will Duncan is sheer sexiness and definitely a worthy hero in my book. Damn, I experienced so many emotions, including hatred for Serena's selfish and cruel sister. Omg, I wanted to throttle that bitch every time she was around. But Will truly made my heart flutter so often. Wha

I loved, loved, LOVED both of the characters and couldnt wait to read about what really happened years ago.. McKinley is truly an evil evil character but I loved her final confrontation in the book.. I loved the fact that both of the characters had feelings for the other from way back when and it just grew. My heart broke for Serena when I read what happened.. I honestly cannot recommen ...more

I really enjoyed reading this book.
Although what happened to Serena was horrific and even worse was finding out who was to blame, the love story is what sucked me in.
Will is just too good for words.
His love literally brought Serena out of the darkness.

I have some mixed feelings about this book whch is why I gave it 2.5 stars.

There's an important theme addressed as the main plot of the book, but I feel the narration, even when it brought attention to it, didn't give it the importance such a theme deserved. Even though everything was supposed to revolve around that incident. There were numerous things that seemed to have happened and were filled in either by a character's monologue (thoughts) or comments that were made by them telling it had ta

This is such a bittersweet story. I have always been fascinated with blind people and their dependence with their hearing, feeling and insticts when it comes to dealing with people. I think it is a really great that they could do that.

Serena got blind after a very bad experience. She was gang raped when she was 15 and she didn't really remember what happened at that day and then she got blind. Seven years after, Serena is living alone in her aunt's house and teaching blind students. Until Will

My problem is that Will is too good to be true. Even when the author tries to make him look flawed, he still comes out the perfect guy. I would not have minded if it was just a romance book but Blind Faith conveys another message. The message that in order to survive the worst, you have to face your fears. Serena could not face her fears, yet, deep down she knew that she wanted to forget that her sister had been somewhat responsible. McKinley is really the total sociopath of the story, the villa ...more

Blind Faith by Kimberley Reeves is an achingly moving tale. It narrates the story of Serena who was brutally raped at the young age of 15 which leaves her emotionally scarred, hurt and close and also physically blind. The novel narrates the incidents that happens 7 years later. Serena is now living independently in a house rented by her Aunt Rose with her faithful guard dog Rufus and she teaches in a school for the visually challenged.
It is when dashing, high school crush and her brother’s frie

I feel very cranky with this book because I wanted to like it, but I just didn't enjoy the reading experience. The plot was "telegraphed" so early there was no real mystery or payoff and I felt really impatient for the book to just wrap up. I think the phrase "show, don't tell" would be a good mantra for the author to learn.

However, I can forgive a lot in a book if I love the characters, and for me this was the biggest flaw: I just didn't believe the characters. I think the female characters wer

This was amazing.. I completely adored the heroine in this story and Will was a sweetheart too. But that McKinley is one piece of evil work. The end was gratifying and I liked that the author wasn't so quick to appease us with that moment too soon. it came at just the right moment. This book was so easily read and the transfer from Will to Serena and vice versa POV was so effortless it flowed beautifully into one another.

⭐⭐⭐✨if ever slapping a sister was warranted

I'm pretty sure I picked this up as a 99 cent sale. I'll admit to being a bit of a cover whore and to be honest this one didn't really do a lot for me. Synopsis intrigued me so I took a punt.

Serena and Will worked well as a pairing. I expected issues from areas where there were none (older brothers) and where I didn't see a problem (beating up the aholes) it seemed to be an issue to reveal.

Extremes in characters - Mary Sue and mean girl grated at times

This was definitely a compelling story. I liked the characters and the changing point of view helped to move the story forward. I thought the way to the story progressed was well done, but I have a hard time believing that Serena would have a sexual relationship so quickly.

There are also two chapters that are almost exact replicas, which distracted me. The information in the duplicated chapters was important, but as I was reading, I kept thinking "Didn't I already read this entire thing??"

Loved this book. It has a pretty strong subject matter with vivid flashbacks and nothing is held back when what happened to Serena is recounted. Will is such a honey, a strong male lead who puts Serena's trust, love and happiness above anything else. He's nothing but protective. McKinley, ugh I wanted to reach into the book and slap her silly. She's so vile, a vapid, shallow heartless bitch. I couldn't hate her enough.

A great read but be warned if you have triggers about rape, then this may not
