Blind: Killer Instincts by Sidney Bristol



Reviewed by Tabatha


Wow, what a fantastic read that was! This was my first book by Sidney Bristol, and I can guarantee you I will be devouring her backlist as soon as I can. Blind was filled with fast-paced suspense, thrilling moments, and best of all steamy romance that will keep you glued to the pages. The balance of all of it all was really quite perfect, and I found myself unable to put the book down start to finish. Yep that’s right, I read this baby in one sitting because it was just THAT good.

I’ve got to say, I just adored Jacob and Emma. Not only were they perfectly developed characters, but they also had such an intense connection you could feel it coming off the pages. Despite both being brought together by a shared past and both being very different people, you can see quite clearly that there is so much more going on between them even when they both try to resist it. The best part was that they could be themselves with one another, and boy did that translate well in the bedroom. *fans self* It was pretty darn hot! They’ve both come from so much darkness in their lives, but together they see a light they never thought possible just as a killer turns his focus on the two of them.

As a whole, Blind seamlessly weaves passion and suspense in a way that will keep a reader hooked. The plot is complex, and never once did I expect what was going to happen in the story. I really hope Sidney continues and makes this into a series, because if she continues on as strong as she came out with this one, it is going to be a series you won’t want to miss out on! I can’t highly recommend this one enough, guys, so I hope you’ll give it a try. And Sidney…I need that next book asap!

Blind is an amazing blend of thriller, suspense, mystery with a bit of romance thrown in there that not only keeps you on the edge of your seat, but will have you jumping at every twist and turn. The characters were just fantastic. They were so well written that you aren't left with questions or wonderings about how they woulda/shoulda/coulda handled the situations that took place in the book. I never found myself thinking "Oh, I thought he/she would do this instead," because you KNEW who they were and never once doubted the reality of their actions. The pace of the book was perfect for the genre, it's like the author knew when you would need a breather before the next action started up. I don't know if this is part of a series to come but I would absolutely love to read more by Sidney Bristol in this genre. She's a natural crime, thriller writer in league with the best!
