Running Blind

Kyle Green is on top of the world. He and Matt have been together for ten years, and—as the voice of Ecos, the wildly popular anime character—Kyle is treated like a rock star in anime circles. But in an instant, a stroke leaves him blind. When photographer Matt gets the opportunity of a lifetime, Kyle reexamines their relationship, discovers it has been a safety net rather than a true romance, and sets Matt free to pursue his dream. Kyle’s life and career as he knew them are gone, and he must now find the courage and creativity to draft a new plan.

After being away for fifteen years, Seth Caplan comes home to Chicago to care for his mother and to partner with a small start-up tech company. He and Kyle meet after Kyle’s collision with a child’s sidewalk toy, and they hit it off. Kyle wants to get back into running, and Seth becomes his guide. As they get to know each other, they start seeing each other beyond their three-times-a-week runs. But Seth’s revelation of the dark reason why he left his career in California sends the relationship into a tailspin and leaves both men running blind.A


This book is all about “conquering the odds and making the most of what life gives you”. This story is heart-warmingly beautiful featuring a sweet romance and an incredible journey of one man who grabs life by the horns after losing his sight for good.

Gay Book Reviews

I’ll just say that this was a really good novel. I loved both guys and I think they complimented each other well, like I said above. I love reading books with disabled characters, as it’s something that people should read about more. It creates empathy, and to me, it seems like the authors did a great job with their characters and their various diversities in Running Blind.

I found zero slip-ups (having the blind man do something as if he could see – you’d be surprised how often a writer messes up disabilities – and very few typos. This is a beautiful work, and I highly recommend it. You’ll have to accept that Kyle is very smart, and adaptable.


As far as I know, this is the first book I’ve read by the author but definitely not my last. The MCs are great together and the details given regarding the changes that becoming blind suddenly have on your life is perfect. Everything is balanced, sad with happy, sweet with hot.


This was a very good story. I couldn’t put it down once I started. It’s sad when Kyle has his stroke and watching him fight to get a normal life back I really liked Seth and his strength and also how the authors made him human. 


Kim Fielding and Venona Keyes teaming up to write? Sign me up! When I saw that two of my favorite authors co-wrote a book together, I couldn’t wait to get my eyes on it, and boy was I rewarded. Running Blind is a moving, loving, and completely unforgettable story.
