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?
Itís 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.
Right off the bat, the cover of this book keys you in to the heat level you can expect from this book (love, love, love this cover!). I was quickly captivated from the very start, and from there simply enjoyed the emotional ride.
I honestly can't pick a favorite between Dylan and Angelo, I really liked both characters so much. The chemistry between them is crazy hot, and their connection intense. There's just the right amount of angst and heat, and their relationship progresses at just the right pace. The two of them really are a great match, and it cannot be said enough just how incredibly sizzling they are together.
We get to see some characters from the author's previous works, but don't worry if you haven't read those before; it won't affect your enjoyment of this story (though I would recommend reading them anyway). As for the writing, it's the same high quality I've come to expect from this author with accuracy from research (vital to the understanding of Angelo's health) and a good flow to the story-with a bit of twist of course.
Dream was a 4.5-star read for me, and a story I do highly recommend--especially if you love books that are filled with heat and passion. Definitely one strictly for readers 18+ for adult language and explicit, scorching sexual content.
