He can seduce with a single glance.

Peering down at a sea of fans, rock star, Mitchell Davies can’t deny the innocent beauty of a woman in the front row. He’ll stop at nothing to get to know her. When a public altercation leaves her weak and defenseless, he takes the opportunity to be her savior.

She’s been sheltered from the world.

Alana Shelton wants to spread her wings and experience life away from her restrictive upbringing. But she isn’t prepared for a gorgeous stranger to sweep her off her feet while at her most vulnerable.

Attraction will bring them together, but their pasts will try to tear them apart.

He wants to teach her how to trust, but she’ll show him how to love. In a glamorous world of rock-and-roll, only time will tell if they’re up for the challenge.

At A Glance

A decent rock star romance.

The Good

I will always have a soft spot in my heart for rock star romances. Blind Attraction was no different. The set-up was definitely different. Alana gets glass thrown in her eyes and her vision is temporarily messed up for a couple days. Mitch feels responsible for what happened to Alana so he takes care of her while she regains her sight. They have a good, though fast, connection and spend some yummy nights together.

I love how serious Mitch was with Alana’s care. He held off doing the boom boom with Alana because he didn’t want to take advantage of her with her temporary blindness and all. While Alana just kept thinking, “Just fuck me already!” Rock star sex is the best. 😉 It was hilarious. The  characters were pretty awesome too. Mitch’s band mates were great comedic interludes between the Mitch and Alana drama.

The Bad

The drama felt forced. The main conflict was completely ridiculous and I thought less of Mitch because of it.

It was obsession as first sight which I am getting really tired of. I know authors only have so many pages to make people fall in love, but I know it can be done in a more realistic way.

The ending had me rolling my eyes.

The Snuggly

The sex was pretty dang hot. Not too much, not too little. Juuuuuusssst right.

Final Thoughts

There is nothing special about Blind Attraction, but I enjoyed myself for the most part. I will always enjoy a rock star romance in some way because they are my guilty pleasure. I would recommend this to rock star lovers who are looking for a light read.


He squeezed her neck and rested his forehead against hers, “What is it with you, Allie? Why can’t I take my mind off you? I can’t take a single breath without wishing I was touching you”

“If you stay you can rest assured I won’t get a lick of sleep because all I want to do is grope you and sniff your hair.”  

Mitch stared at where her hand lay on Blake’s crotch and appreciated that his friend didn’t comment.
“Please tell me I don’t have my hand some place inappropriate.” Alana’s voice broke.

    Oi, obsession. It’s addictive at first but once the rose colored glasses shattered it’s kinda creepy. Like I don’t want to be in that kind of relationship so my suspended disbelief is already gone.

      LOL, really? Story of your life? Your life sounds interesting. Bwahaha.

  2. Lover Of Romance

    oh I had so much find with Blind Attraction. What I love about Eden Summers though is how engaging her writing is. I could barely put this one down. I don’t remember having any major issues with the story though. Although the third book was my favorite of the books.

    I love that you enjoyed it so much even with flaws and all. I’m not a romance fan, but if I were I’d probably read rock star romances. I can totally see the guilty pleasure appeal there. What’s hotter than a musician? An Irish musician? Maybe Australian…

    • Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads)

      Right, nothing is hotter than a musician. An Irish musician should not even exist because all ovaries would explode.

    I’ve just recently gave this book a shot, but I DNFed it at 66%. It wasn’t that this book was bad – if I had to rate it based on what I read I’d probably give it around 3 stars as well.
    It was just… well, I didn’t like the insta-love. And for all you say Mitch was careful with Alana, it really did take them only a day to tumble into bed. At which point they were in bed A LOT. With other people hearing them, too.
    I wanted to see them falling in love more than falling into bed, and I could already smell the unnecessary drama approaching and I just decided I didn’t have the time for that lol
    Great review Jen!
