    1. This book irked me a little. I didn't like the way a lot of the characters behaved, and when they started behaving better, it got a little too sappy for me. Carly, the heroine, just had surgery that's given her vision after being blind all her life. Two weeks after the surgery, she goes to a bar and gets knocked up by Hank Coulter. She was told that getting pregnant right after the surgery would be very bad and now she's going to go blind again, can't afford to take care of the baby on the way, [...]

    2. Wow.what a beautiful story. Hank is a 32 year old rancher who trolls a country western bar every weekend looking for the next one-night stand. He feeds women lines, uses them and then and disappears the next morning. His pick-up one drunken night is Carly, a 28 year old virgin who had a recent operation leading to temporary sightedness. Major consequences of his callous, deceitful approach result. I really enjoyed his growth, but major slut shaming during the book (virgins don't deserve such tre [...]

    4. Ok, I couldn't spare more than 3 stars for this one. I was about one third through Blue Sky and the story line was SO irritating me. The heroine, Carley, has an eye disease that has caused her to blind since birth. After college, she has a surgery that restores a good percent of sight. She has been able to see for about 3 weeks when she goes to the bar with her friend, and proceeds to get hammered, then she sleeps with a stranger in the back of his truck. I forgot to throw in that she was a virg [...]

    5. I really like this book! So far every book in the series has been EXCELLENT! Anderson's stories are always so tender and sweet. I love her less than perfect heroines who find their prince charming in the hunky cowboys who’d move heaven and earth for them! I was so drawn into the story at page one. Carly was blind all her life but recently went through surgery to regain her sight so when she first sees Hank Coulter at a local bar she thinks he’s the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen. When h [...]

    6. Absolutely fabulous love story.n, beautiful, tragic, and perfect!Full disclosure: I am legally blind, a far cry from the blackness that our heroine, Carly, has had to deal with her entire life, but it does make me feel drawn toward blind and visually disabled characters. On the other hand, I am also very, very picky about how those characters are portrayed. So often, I feel like perhaps the author put a blindfold on and tried to walk around for a few hours, without really getting to know what it [...]

Carly é uma jovem mulher de 28 anos nascida com uma doença rara nos olhos tendo crescido cega e recuperando a visão através de uma operação, e é pouco depois de a ter recuperado que Carly conhece Hank Coulter num bar onde foi com a sua amiga Bess. Hank é o tipo de homem que gosta de se divertir e procura relações fugaz [...]

    9. Acabei este livro agora e é LINDO! Chorei baba e ranho mas a história é linda! Adoro este tipo de romances que me fazem acreditar que o amor pode vencer todas as barreiras. Amei este livro.Sem dúvida que a Catherine é uma grande escritora, as personagens são de uma realidade e sensibilidade tremendas, envolvem-nos na história com as suas qualidades e defeitos.

    11. In the beginning of the book, I thought Hank Coulter was the most irresponsible, annoying, selfish, and thought-less person ever. I truly hated him. However, as the book progressed, we see what a sweet, nice person he could be.There were multiple times during the book that his words and actions towards Carly was so sweet and emotional that I could not hold back tears. Still, he was a too forceful a guy. I HATED that about him!!! Carly is a sweet and nice person who has eye disease. As a result, [...]

    12. This book is very stereo typical. As a blind person, I don't think I need special ropes and things to get around the ranch independently. I would do just fine on my own. Also, if I could see for the first time, one of the first things I would not do is go to a bar. Oh, and as far as the hunky cowboy, give me a break! Granted, Carly is a grown woman, but, someone has kept her sheltered quite a bit. If she doesn't know the ins and outs of men or the birds and the bees, at least a little bit by now [...]

    13. Anderson's books are pure romance and drama, and always very poignant. She tells people-stories, and Blue Skies is no different. She really draws you in with her multi-faceted characters, all the angst, and emotions. These types of stories generally aren't my favorites, but I have enjoyed Anderson's books.Hank and Carly had an instant chemistry. Their story definitely keeps you reading. It was interesting to read how the characters changed and grew, learned from their mistakes, and tried to buil [...]

    14. I can see Anderson has a ongoing rhythin in the Kendrick/ Coultier series with women who have disabilities or who are recovering from a battered past. These. Cowboys come into rescue and are challenged when the fears of their potential wives, soul mates don't make it too easy on them. This particular story deals with Carly, who is blind and is also very inexperienced in the boy department. After regaining her sight, she falls for the hunkY cowboy, Hank. After a drunken night of not so great plea [...]

    15. Carly is finally able to see after receiving eye surgery. After a one night stand, she ends up pregnant with the hero's baby. The pregnancy, however, could cause her to go blind again. I liked the book and the plot, but I felt that there was too much blame on the hero for accidentally getting her pregnant.

    16. 3.5 * apesar de não ser tão cativante quanto os anteriores teve o,seu mérito. uma história com algum drama mas também a vida real não é cor de rosa. uma história de conquistas diárias e sobretudo de confiança e de amor. no fundo uma mensagem bonita em que a vida não é mais de que um conjunto de momentos que nos tornam felizes e fortes.

    17. Blue Skies is such a great book!I laughed, cried and yelled at this story. I fell in love with Hank. All the Coulter brother's are hard not to fall in love with. The way the he fall's in love with Carly was so sweet.

    18. Reviewed for THC Reviews"4.5 stars" Blue Skies is another tender, emotional romance from Catherine Anderson's pen. In the tradition of Phantom Waltz, an earlier book from the same series, Ms. Anderson has created a disabled heroine, one who is this time blind. I was very impressed when I found out through the author's note at the end of the book that Blue Skies was inspired by a real-life young woman who had contacted her following the release of Phantom Waltz. This lady suffered from the same r [...]

Ay sí, nació ciega.Ay sí, tenían que darle direcciones cuando subía una patineta.Ay sí, ningún chico se le confesó nunca.Ay sí, cometió la idiotez de acostarse con un ebrio una noche y quedó embarazada.Ay sí, dicho hombre quiere hacerse responsable pero como no recordó su nombre a la primera, ella piensa que tiene derecho a negarle responder por su bebé.Ay sí, se va a quedar ciega otra vez.Pero como el [...]

    22. I didn't expect much from this book when I read the back cover, so at least I wasn't disappointed. Carly Adams just had surgery to correct a lifetime of blindness, enjoys a night at the bar with her friend Bess and winds up being deflowered by Hank Coulter. Without a condom.Surprise surprise, she gets knocked up and the pregnancy will fuck up her eyes again. The whole situation is teeth-gratingly annoying to read through. Carly's a stubborn ass who whines about her stupid pride, Hank's just an a [...]

    23. This book is bad, even for the shallow HR in disguise I was expecting (and even looking forward to). But the biggest, headliner reason why I think so seems to differ wildly from most others. In short: the H is a complete piece of crap, at least before I reached my limit and stopped.Most people's reviews that I've read so far have complained about the heroine in this book, and I couldn't possibly say for myself if she was intolerable or not. She was just naive as hell and dumb from what I read, b [...]

    24. The heroines of this series often have interesting and unusual histories (paralysis, brain damage, domestic violence, agoraphobia), and this one is no exception. Carley has lattice dystrophy, a childhood blindness that she just had surgery for, and she can see for the first time. Then she gets pregnant, which causes the disease to return with a vengeance. This story just has too many out-of-character moments to be among Anderson's best. Carley's life-long best friend takes her to a skanky cowboy [...]

    26. It was an okay read. But I didn’t much care for Carly or Hank. I found her a little annoying. Hank was a lot more likable than her. Although his actions weren’t ideal, I understood him a little better than Carly which is why I found her so frustrating. She meets Hank at a bar and they have sex in the back of his truck that same night. She was a virgin so of course by the laws of Romancelandia she winds up pregnant. Hank spent a lot of time in this book feeling bad for what he did. I thought [...]

    27. The fourth book in the Kendrick/Coulter/Harrigan series by Catherine Anderson. It was a good read but not a favorite of Ms. Anderson's. I felt that there should have been more happening to develop the characters and the story itself.

    28. It's a nice novel, but I wonder what crossed the author's mind when she made the heroine discover she is pregnant just a week after having sex with the hero It's not impossible but highly unlikely. I didn't understand the rush. Such things are excusable when they come from beginners

    29. Great story, Just reread it. Carly has a rare eye condition and has just gotten surgery so her sight has been restored. Hank has really no plans to settle down but a chance encounter with Carly changes everything.

    30. Kudos to Ms Anderson for giving me a glimpse of the obstacles a blind person has to deal with constantly and the greatest respect and admiration for the courage of those who are blind or visually impaired who continue to walk out their door each day to live a fulfilling and independent life.
