Wendy reviews ‘Ben’s Rainbow’ (Rainbow Key, Book 3) by Victoria Sue. Published April 29, 2018, 242 pages.
Benedict Keeler was one of America’s most popular models. Hot body, hot career, and super-hot boyfriend, until a devastating house fire destroyed his face and his dreams. After being told all his life that a pretty face is the measure of his worth, he can’t face another rejection and runs from his lover, eventually hiding out on Rainbow Key.
Zachary Jones, a highly sought after photographer—even if he would rather shoot the homeless in Manhattan than a fashion spread—is now facing the real possibility that a genetic disease will render him blind and his days behind a camera may be over.
Two devastated men, one haunted by his past and one convinced he has no future. Will they both hide from the world, or will they give love, and each other, a second chance?

Where to add:
This is a fantastic story. The perfect summer read. In true Victoria Sue fashion, I was heartbroken for the characters right away. There is some angst and the MC’s have a painful past together but over all the story is a sweet reconnecting and a second chance.
I like a romance story where I’m certain that the characters love each other and will do whatever they have to in order to make things work. Much like things can happen in real life, they work hard to overcome the issues that broke them up to begin with and learn what it means to really trust each other.
Ben and Zach have a whole new set of issues that they have to deal with now. Ben with his scars that he thinks make him unlovable and Zach who is almost blind and doesn’t know what to do with his life now because being a photographer, his eyes were his livelihood. This was a book that hit a personal note for me because I have glaucoma and for me it sometimes feels like a race to read everything that I can before I can’t anymore so I really connected with Zach’s character.
This book just floated along at the perfect pace and it was easy to fall into the rhythm of the story. I love the guys and gals from Rainbow Key and can’t wait to read more about them. I highly recommend that you give this series a go if you haven’t already.
10/10 Pots of Gold or 100% recommended
Victoria Sue fell in love with love stories as a child when she would hide away with her mom’s library books and dream of the dashing hero coming to rescue her from math homework. She never mastered math but managed to dream up quite a few heroes. Loves reading and writing about gorgeous boys loving each other the best, but always with a happy ending. Loves to hear from her readers and can be found most days lurking on Facebook where she doesn’t need factor 1000 sun-cream to hide her freckles.
