I can’t sleep…
When unrequited love leaves Dylan Hart sleepless and nursing his wounds, instinct draws him to the one place he’s found mindless respite in the past—Lovato’s. It’s a place for every fantasy — for crazy-hot encounters — where a night of insane NSA sex brings relief to Dylan’s fragile feelings.
It should be a perfect escape, and for one magical night it seems that way, but then worlds collide, and reality bites when his hookup desperately needs a friend. Surely Dylan can’t trust his instincts when friendship has bruised his heart so badly before?
It’s burying me alive…
The deck is stacked against former ballet dancer Angelo Giordano ever finding real love. At least visiting Lovato’s offers respite from a life defined by illness; a glimmer of light in the dull grey of his so-called life without dance. But then he encounters Dylan — a glorious ray of the brightest sunshine — who makes his heart pound once more with purpose.
Angelo’s mind is blown by this man, but the disease that ended his career won’t let him bask in new love. He’s drowning, and Dylan can’t save him while insecurities swamp them both. The only way to make it means confronting their demons.
If Dylan can turn his back on the past, and Angelo can face his uncertain future, maybe they can chase their dreams together.
Dream is the first book in a new series by Garrett Leigh and I couldn’t get enough of this book. I completely fell in love with Dylan and Angelo and couldn’t put the book down.
The book starts off with both Dylan and Angelo enjoying no strings attached sex and from there their relationship starts. I really liked the way the author has developed their relationship. It felt natural and it was not forced. From starting their relationship as a purely physical one to slowly developing that into something life altering has been portrayed beautifully. Angelo’s disease and it’s various effects have been portrayed in a realistic way and it has been integrated well into the story. I really liked the way the author explored their different characters and gave them their happily ever after in a way that makes sense and is believable. I also loved the way they characters explored their sexual chemistry and their kink. I liked that overall the story was well balanced out.
The book is engrossing and will give you a wonderful and memorable journey. I had a fantastic time reading this book and I can’t wait to read the next one. Highly Recommended.
