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.
Holy Toledo, I wasn’t expecting THAT kind of story.
We start this tale with these two being room mates, and you think, yes meet in college, few years apart. One confident, one shy but both are on the same path. They play, they learn they fall in love. Few years later we will get our HEA. End of story…. SO, SO wrong! Thanks Joe! (not)
Well, we get the first part. Jonathan and David do meet, they are roomies, David does take Jonathan under his wings, so to speak but from that point on we get another tale. A marvelous, sad, interesting, life changing one.
It really shows you how things can change, and some times we need to stop and reflect.
