A Dream Come True

Mike is looking for a roommate and Wes is looking for a room to rent. Sparks fly between them - though they do not seem to be obvious at first. Mike is pleasantly surprised when it is Wes that is the last applicant he sees for the day as Mike had a crush on Wes back in college. Wes doesn't remember Mike at first, but one thing leads to another and they start a relationship.

Mike, however, is not as comfortable showing affection in public as Wes is. Mike has other issues as well - one of them being that he is not out to his family. This becomes a bigger issue when, due to his brother's visit, Mike knows that there will be no avoiding doing so. Will Mike be able to deal with his issues? Will Wes wait for Mike to do so or will he leave? Will this situation turn into a nightmare or will it become a 'dream come true' for them both?

A Dream Come True is a very nice book to sit down to. Not only does it have likable characters, but well meant messages that come across without hitting the reader over the head with them. The main message is, of course, love - that it comes in many forms and in many ways. The other (which fits in with the first) is family: how different members interact with each other, their expectations for and of each other, how expectations can shift with unexpected news and how they will (or at least they should) always be there. A definite recommendation.

Book Blurb for A Dream Come True

Mike is thrilled when his old university crush turns up at his door in answer to his roommate advertisement. Wes doesn't remember Mike at all, or even realize he's gay, but that doesn't stop Mike from pursuing a determined campaign of seduction. The trouble is, Mike isn't ready to give up his free and easy lifestyle and settle down with just one man.

Mike isn't comfortable with public displays of affection. Wes doesn't like anything resembling the proverbial closet, but Mike's still buried deep inside one where his family is concerned. Will Wes have the patience to deal with Mike's issues, or will their dream come true end up a nightmare?
