Help A Bitch Out

HaBO: Guilt and Hormonal Blindness

Help a Bitch OutReader E. is searching for a romance that sounds like a nonstop grovel-fest. 

I'm trying to remember the title of a book and author who wrote a book that goes a little like this:

No-longer-blind woman meets a hot cowboy at a bar. The have the feels and get sticky in the back of his car, she's not feeling so much sticky as icky afterwards. And he's mostly just hungover.

But her waffle is already buttered and they get together to take care of the child to be and that she is now blind again because of the hormones from the pregnancy. All the woe. She hates him for making her lose her sight and holds it against him, he has her live at his house to keep an eye on her (pun intended) and feels bad for ruining her newly discovered sight (again pun intended).

He tries to be repentant, because as much as he enjoyed their backseat adventure, he feels bad for making her blind. Other things happen, she roams his farm and almost drowns in a creek, he saves her, blah blah. She eventually gets her sight back and falls in love.

What was that one called again? ;) 

Oh, my. Hormonal blindess and lots of waffley guilt. Do you recognize this book?

    yeah, sounds like blue skies to me, too, though I don’t remember her hating him (but it’s been awhile since I read it – not one of her best IMO).

    Yep, definitely Blue Skies. I haven’t read it, but have it somewhere in my TBR pile and I remember flipping through it when I bought it.

    Thank GAWD I didn’t know hormonal blindness was a thing when I was pregnant.

    Isn’t hormonal blindness the leading cause of [unplanned] pregnancy in the first place? I had not realized it was an outcome as well.

    The first time I ever knew one of these! Blue Skies was the first book I read by Catherine Anderson and I haven’t read another. It can’t be one of her best. I also don’t remember her hating him either.

    Thanks everyone sooo much for the quick feedback! I posed the question, and I’m so excited that I got a response. I’m taking a romance novel and we were talking about rape in romance novels (Which we read out of the Beyond Heaving Bosoms book! Thanks SB Sarah and Candy!!). This is the first book that came to mind when I thought about rape. Did you all think that this book was a little rapey?

    I may not be remembering accurately, it’s been a while since I read the book.  I seem to remember the consent was questionable due to alcohol but I don’t remember it being rape- I could be completely wrong about that, though.  At the same time, all of Anderson’s books in that series tended to have at least a level of WTF involving the sex scenes- for me the one that was the strangest was (I think) Morning Light where they go from talking about their devotion to the Catholic faith, confession, and at least an implied if not outright condemnation of premarital sex to being overcome with passion.
