Review: Painted Blind by Michelle A. Hansen

Cover Source: GoodReads4
Title: Painted Blind
Author: Michelle A. Hansen
Version Reviewed: ARC, eBook

GoodReads Summary:
Psyche Middleton vows her dad will never see the risqué photos she took during a summer modeling stint abroad, but one of them ends up on a billboard in her Montana hometown, where everyone—especially her dad—can see it. That becomes the least of her worries when she meets Erik, a mysterious guy who rescues her from a mob and who she’s never actually seen because he can make himself invisible.
Erik takes her to his palace in an idyllic kingdom, and she is swept into the beauty and culture of his world, but his affection has one condition: she may not see him. Enchanted, intrigued, and not wholeheartedly believing he’s real, Psyche can’t bring herself to love him blindly. When she betrays his trust for a glimpse of his face, Psyche ends up at the mercy of Erik’s controlling mother, who demands that Psyche prove herself in order to be reunited with him. Psyche knows love is never easy, but this is ridiculous. She agrees to complete three impossible tasks to prove her devotion to Erik—or die trying.

This modern retelling of the myth of Cupid and Psyche is a fantastical journey filled with laughter, danger, and the indomitable power of love.
This book caught my attention right away and as soon as I began to read it, I was immersed in the story and couldn't stop reading. The storyline was very easy to fall into and the characters were easy to like, read, and enjoy.

I liked the journey that Psyche had to go on and the tasks she had to complete. In a way it reminded me a little of Impossible by Nancy Werlin.

I really enjoyed the characters of Eros/Erik and the mystery that surrounded him in the beginning.

The book was very enjoyable and definitely one that I would read again and recommend to other readers.

Favorite Character: Eros & Titus.
Rating: 4 Stars.
