It takes more than perseverance to recover from also need love.

Following a horrific accident that leaves him blind, renowned chef Prescott Vaughan loses his fiancĂ© and all hope for his career. Recovery and confidence in his skills come slowly, along with feelings he hasn’t experienced in a long time when he meets his new neighbor, Dr. Rickson Edwards.

Unlike Prescott, Ric is open about his attraction to men yet has issues that complicate their relationship. A brief separation threatens his hopes for an eventual reunion when Prescott befriends the handsome aspiring chef Blair McKenzie, who wants more than cooking advice.

Ric doubts Pres can let go of the charming southerner, but after an encounter with the sinfully sexy man, he can't help his attraction as well. Pres feels he must choose but realizes…does he have to?

You Can See Me by A.E. Via is a very complicated story with many layers to it. Mostly it is about Prescott and his journey. Pres is blind. He used to be a famous chef, he had money, a fiance, everything he could want. Then he gets side swiped and loses his site. He has to build himself back up after that. No one really wants to stay with him. They cannot take the challenges of being with someone blind. Now Pres is a famous food critique. He is paid big money for what he does and he loves it. He can also cook blind and still make tasty food. The only thing missing his life is a man or woman to share it with.
Rickson is a doctor at the local hospital. He was more or less thrown out of the last hospital he was in for being gay. He keeps that part of himself under wraps now. When his sexy neighbor starts to become more Ric is not sure he can handle it. Ric is a dominating personality. He likes control. But Pres likes control too. So they sometimes clash.
Blair he comes into the picture when Ric and Pres are not together. Pres gets lonely and asks for an escort and Blair answers the call. Blair is sweet, soft spoken, gentle. Perfect for Pres. But when Ric wants Pres back is Blair going to be part of that package.
I loved the chemistry between Ric and Pres their story is extremely well done. Blair however not so much. He is there, but he gets the short end of the stick a lot and is not as developed as a character to make me want him around for more. If that was different I would really super love this story but as it is still a great read. Good character connections and plenty of story to keep you turning the pages. Blair just needs a little more development for me to be completely in love with this story.
