#Bookreview Blind Side by Jennie Ensor

31200537Can you ever truly know someone? And what if you suspect the unthinkable?

London, five months before 7/7. Georgie, a young woman wary of relationships after previous heartbreak, gives in and agrees to sleep with close friend Julian. She’s shocked when Julian reveals he’s loved her for a long time.
But Georgie can’t resist her attraction to Nikolai, a Russian former soldier she meets in a pub. While Julian struggles to deal with her rejection, Georgie realises how deeply war-time incidents in Chechnya have affected Nikolai. She begins to suspect that the Russian is hiding something terrible from her.

Then London is attacked…

Blind Side explores love and friendship, guilt and betrayal, secrets and obsession. An explosive, debate-provoking thriller that confronts urgent issues of our times and contemplates some of our deepest fears.

My Review

I really enjoyed this book and I’m so grateful that the author contacted me to read and review it. I spent most of my weekend caught up in this absorbing tale of love, relationships, family secrets, obsessions and identity. I truly felt part of Georgie, Julian and Nikolai’s world, created so well by the author.

I don’t normally like character driven stories, mainly because they’ve been filled with people and situations that I haven’t been able to identify with. Blind Side was different, as I liked Georgie and her situation was very easy to understand and sympathise with. Julian, I liked at first but as the plot proceeded my loyalties definitely changed. And Nikolai, well, I kept changing my mind about him all the time. Was he who he said he was, what was he hiding, if anything?

As other reviewers have previously mentioned, this is so much more than the usual run of the mill psychological thriller and I thoroughly recommend it.
