Fade In by M. Mabie
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.
Rating: 5 Groupie Stars
"Sometimes a few things have to fade out to make room for better ones to fade in."
Fade In is the wonderfully romantic, heartbreaking story of Tatum and Ben. Tatum is losing her sight. She is a very independent person and does not want to ask for help. She is afraid of life without her sight. She is writer, lives on her own, and does not want to depend on anyone else. Her doctor tells her she needs to start simplifying her life. So, she hires a personal assistant, Ben, and her life starts to change.
The attraction is instantaneous between Tatum and Ben. Tatum is not sure that it is a good idea to make anything of their flirting since he is her personal assistant. Ben wants Tatum just as much as she wants him, but there is more to Ben than Tatum realizes.
I loved this story. It had a unique storyline. It made me cry, laugh, and then cry again. Tatum is a strong, independent woman that you can look up to. It is easy to feel for her and understand what she is going through. Ben is a kind-hearted man who wants to help Tatum. He is sweet, romantic, and strong, exactly what Tatum needs.
The book is written in Tatum's POV, except for the prologue and epilogue which are in Ben' POV. This book is very well written. I loved the unique storyline and the way it all unfolds.
This is a great book. If you are looking for a romantic story with hot scenes, lots of laughs, and some tears, you will love Fade In. I cannot wait to read more from M. Mabie. This is definitely a 5-star read!!
M. Mabie lives in Illinois, NOT Chicago, with her rock-star husband. (True story.) She loves writing for Fifty5Cents Book Blog, which she owns and operates- at the moment quite poorly. She's a proud member of the Indie Author Romance Author Chicks writing group where she maintains a high standard of professionalism and lady-like maturity- or not. She cares about politics, but won’t discuss them in public. She uses the same fork at every meal, watches Wayne’s World while cleaning, and lets her dog sleep on her head. M. Mabie has never been accused of being tight lipped or shy. She’s THAT girl. (She doesn't usually speak in third-person, but surprisingly does when weirded-out about writing her bio.)
