Review by Linda Yau

Visually disabled Professor Stone Watson is a self-reliant and accomplished history professor. Accomplished to the point where people enjoyed his published book, so now he is scheduled for a traveling book tour. Everything should be easy on this trip, a paid vacation really. New locations, foods, locale, the scenery should be interesting…

This is where Mason Vergis steps into the picture.

Mason is an ex-solider turned bodyguard and he is hired by Stone as a personal assistant. To be his seeing "eyes" for him on this book tour. Stone finds him to be perfect for the job in the professional aspect, but the question now is – would he be perfect in his personal life as well?

Now I've read this short story in one sitting and while I enjoyed some of the descriptive dialog, Sean Michael used in conversation of how Mason directs Stone to locations. There are more hot different sex scenes than normal scenes though, and this is good for people who love reading erotica.

On the other hand, it felt very off putting when I realized that some of the sex dialogue was a lot of usage of the word "fuck." Perhaps this is the author's way of getting into the mood, but after a few scenes of the sex, I started to feel that this was a huge lemon porn. The descriptions of the sex were quite explicit, to the point where there were no other words to describe than it being hot and sweaty.

I digress though, something about Mason as a character made me want to run screaming to him for protection. It was cute how protective and possessive he got of Stone, so that is a point in my favor, have got to love a strong man making sure he is protecting his love.
