After cheating on and losing the man he loved, Morgan Conway decided to get his life right. Now he owns a coffee shop and is engaged to Jase, an actor and rising star. All is perfect in his world until the man he thought was gone forever walks into his shop. His hidden feelings rush to the surface, unfortunately there for everyone to see, including his fiancé.
Shae Delamere was crushed when Morgan cheated on him five years ago. But he has a reason for seeking Morgan out. As Morgan and Shae get to know each other again, they discover the extent that friends meddled in their lives to keep them apart. Morgan cannot deny he is still in love with Shae, but he is engaged. With some hard decisions to make, Morgan struggles not to hurt the men he cares about—again. Shae has secrets he came to share with Morgan, but revealing them now could keep them apart for good.
I really enjoyed this story. I was nervous there would be cheating in this story since that’s a big no-no for me (personal preference, I get it’s not a big deal for others). I was pleasantly surprised with how things turned out. The way Morgan and Jase’s relationship dissolved was a little too easy. However I saw how Morgan never really stopped loving Shae despite the relationship with Jase. I figured out the big secret pretty quickly. How Morgan reacted was probably how I’d react in a situation like that. I’m actually surprised Shae went to him as quickly as he did. But it worked really well with bringing Morgan out of the tailspin he was in. I loved the side characters. They make the story so much more fun and. I want to read some of their stories too.
Four and a half
ONCE HE started work on Stolen Dreams as first assistant director, Morgan had little time to think beyond the endless meetings with the director and planning each shoot. Xander Bannatyne was a notorious control freak about every aspect of the shoot, which irritated Morgan, but he had learned so much from the director that he invariably kept his mouth shut until he had time to formulate a better argument. In return, Xander appreciated Morgan’s ability to take over all the day-to-day details of production. Morgan aspired to someday be second unit director, but for the time being, he was happy to learn his trade at the hands of directors like Xander Bannatyne.
His days were busy and full of phone calls, meetings, and more meetings. His nights were strained and deadly quiet. For the first time in their relationship, Jase was avoiding him, and it took Morgan back to the darker times with Shae, when the sound of the front door closing on an empty apartment seemed to happen more and more often.
Elroy just gave him an incredulous look when Morgan tried to discuss the problem with him. “Dude, he’s just met the third person in the relationship. This is the guy he could never compete with, which was fine while Shae wasn’t around, but now Elvis is in the building and what’s more, it’s obvious you’ve still got a hard-on for him.”
Sue Brown is owned by her dog and two children. When she isn’t following their orders, she can be found plotting at her laptop. In fact she hides so she can plot and has gotten expert at ignoring the orders.
Sue discovered M/M erotica at the time she woke up to find two men kissing on her favorite television series. The series was boring; the kissing was not. She may be late to the party, but she’s made up for it since, writing fan fiction until she was brave enough to venture out into the world of original fiction.
