Review: Clarity One by Loretta Lost

Clarity One by Loretta Lost

Fiercely independent Helen Winters was born completely blind, but she vowed never to let her disability keep her down. She did not expect a traumatic event to devastate her life and force her to drop out of college. Disillusioned by the cruelty of people, Helen retreated from society to live by herself as a reclusive writer in the woods—where no one could ever hurt her again.

When a brilliant young doctor shows up on her doorstep, promising her that his new research can give her the ability to see for the first time, Helen stubbornly refuses. She has learned not to trust anyone, and to rely only on herself. But Dr. Liam Larson will not take no for an answer. He makes it his personal mission to rescue Helen from her loneliness, and bring joy into her world once more—the joy she has denied herself for so long.

When Helen’s demons come racing back into her life, threatening to rip her apart and destroy the strength she has carefully rebuilt, Liam is the only one who might be able to save her.

Can he reach the broken girl in time, helping her to heal and see the world in a different light? Or will Helen’s grief send her spiraling out of control, lost to him forever?

Clarity was a stunning story that held me captive until I turned the very last page. Every time I HAD to take a break, I had an almost uncontrollable desire to drop what I had to do to pick the book back up and just continue reading. I liked how Liam had a "fanboy crush", because it's good to hear that men can get all emotionalish (I mean he is still a guy) over someone he's a fan of. I loved Owen with his easy banter, humor (let's just say, I was definitely laughing out loud a lot whenever he was talking), and charm (well at least I thought he was charming), along with Liam with his persistence and gentleness. It was easy to see how Owen and Liam were friends, because of their personalities that went so well together. There are two quotes in the book "But I like to think that even when we're gone, the soul retains some of that wisdom - some of that feeling. What I do is simple science, but what you do is... magic" and "Books are medicine for the soul. They heal the eternal parts of a person" which are talking about how a book forever remains with you even after you have long put down the book. That is what this book did to me! Helen's struggles and pain felt real to me, and that's why I couldn't put this book down and why it has lingered within me. I cannot wait to read the second book in the series.

Note: I received this book free from Loretta Lost and Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
