Undaunted, Jonathan celebrates the captivating man who will always hold a special place in his heart.
A Dreamspinner Press Bittersweet Dreams title: It’s an unfortunate truth: love doesn’t always conquer all. Regardless of its strength, sometimes fate intervenes, tragedy strikes, or forces conspire against it. These stories of romance do not offer a traditional happy ending, but the strong and enduring love will still touch your heart and maybe move you to tears.
This is my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. I really hoped that David and Jonathan would get their HEA but it was not to be, but there was a HEA. From the beginning I was enthralled and couldn’t wait to finish this book. I loved how the author went through David’s and Jonathan’s relationship and how David helped Jonathan with his acting. I didn’t expect what happened in the end but was glad to see that Jonathan got his HEA.
