My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Renowned Chef Prescott Vaughan was at the height of his career when a car accident leaves him completely blind. His fiancée leaves him in a state of desperation and depression. Prescott pines for love and happens to find it in his neighbor; male neighbor Dr. Rickson Edwards. Prescott never considered himself gay, but when Ric saves him, Prescott begins to view his rescuer differently. However, when Ric and Prescott have problems, Prescott seeks comfort from an escort but was unprepared for the sexy, southern, hotness that is Blair McKenzie. Prescott now has to choose between his two men…or does he?
Warning: A sexy surgeon, a world renowned Chef, and a smokin, southern escort are as opposite as can be, but when they come together, grab a cold drink cause it’s about to get extra hot!

On the downside…..there wasn’t really much of a downside. I enjoyed this book for what it was and just immersed myself in some hot, man-on-man-on-man loving. Maybe all three men didn’t seem entirely equal and I would have loved to have got to know Blair in more than a sexual capacity (thank god he stood up for himself in a scene where he said exactly what I was thinking) and yes, the “strawberry” endearment stuck out a bit as being unusual. Plus Pres’s ex-girlfriends were as annoying as hell!
This story deals with blindness and one of the strengths was the impression that the author really knows her stuff as shown in all the little things – the descriptions, the touching and feeling. The strong medical knowledge was also reflected in the story with very realistic scenes (at least they seemed very real to me given I am not a medically trained person!)
“With every storm, there’ll be sunshine after,” Pres responded.
Blair laughed in between them. “Storm and sunshine…..so what does that make me? asked Blair.
“The Rainbow,” Ric and Pres responded in unison.
