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.
I love this book so much that I got
past the typos after about 20 pages and fall in love with the story. Tatum is a
fun and lovable heroine who knows how to really break-up with a loser boyfriend.
Her break up was Epic and had me in tears, it was that funny. Tatum has a lot
to deal with in her life, after the break up, she much comes to terms with her
condition, but she doesn’t want any help being a very independent women, but
she finds herself looking for a personal assistant. In walks Ben and Tatum
hired him pretty much on the spot. Ben wants to help her but Tatum fights with
him about everything and it get funny. After time they grow to feel for each
other but Tatum doesn’t want to hold him back from a life he could have with
someone who has her condition, but Ben fights for what he wants and that is
her, all of her. I love Ben but he has a secret, one that could leave them both
alone and heartbroken. I think that is one of the best cast of characters in a
books that I have read this year, I loved each of them, and they all worked
well together. Ben will make you fall in love with his sweet and sexy but also
that he is patient and caring. I want to find a Ben, but Tatum takes that cake.
She is funny and doesn’t let things keep her down too much. The storyline is
amazing as well as the overall writing there was some typos but really you’re
too busy loving the characters to really care. I want a big brother like Tatum,
Coop is amazing to her and if Ben’s not your type Coop will be for sure. I
found this book refreshing because the characters don’t fall in love instantly,
they grow overtime which I love. If you want something funny but has drama as
well check out FADE IN. 5 Super Sweet Stars for being amazing.
"I hope you saved the receipt for the breakfast and all that
stuff yesterday, too. You don't need to be buying my meals," I say with a
mouth that's half full.
He quickly pulls the Jeep into a parking lot and smoothly parks in
an available space. He turns the engine off and turns to face me.
"Okay. We need to get a few things straight for today,
Tatum." Emerald eyes look at me with utmost determination. "Today,
I'm not working. Neither are you. Today we are Ben and Tatum, out and about,
having a good time. Think of it like a date."
"A date?" Is this a date? Hold up. When did I agree to a
date? Then again, what could it hurt? It’s one day-date.
"A date. I'm paying. I'm driving. I'm in control. Do you agree
or disagree to this arrangement?"
"No one has ever asked me to go on a date while I'm already on
the date." I can't help but smile and be a little excited that he wants to
be on a date with me—and he didn't mind telling me so either.
"Will this date interfere with our working relationship?"
That's the responsible question I needed to ask.
He shakes his head no.
"Is this like a friends-buddies kind of date?" My
eyebrows rise and I lean forward, trying to gauge where he's at in this whole
"Not for me, but I can't answer that for you. You don't even
have to think about that right now. Just relax and let me show you a good time.
Deal?"He says this with such
confidence that I'm speechless.
