Blind Love at a little over 100 pages is a very quick and enjoyable read. Written by a retired school teacher this is a realistic tale written from experience with today’s young. Blind Love is a tale of one young man journey through first love, and the consequences that result from questionable actions. Being a self published novel it is to be expected to find some rough edges in this book. Impressively I only found a couples areas in this story that I had trouble following both were in reference to the thought processes of the characters, but was easily overlooked and did not hinder the overall storyline.
