Blurb

I can’t sleep…

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?

It’s 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.

Garrett had done it once again!!! I’m not going to give away some of the juicy details, but from the first chapter I could tell that this was going to be the hottest book I have read from her.


Dylan is trying to mend a broken heart and Angelo is just trying to get his life back in some sort of order. When the two are put together face to face they realize that they have previously met in somewhat of an unconventional way. This leads to them forging a somewhat friendship, that of course turns steamy, but not in a day to day setting, trust me, it's hot as all get out but it’s not just in any old bed.


Angelo has some serious issues that he has to overcome, not just personality wise, but also health wise. Garrett, the Affliction Queen,has a way with finding afflictions that one doesn't read of often and writes about them in a way that is endearing.


Dylan has some things he needs to sort out himself, he has a very demanding and stressful job that is all about helping others but he doesn't take the time to help himself as well.


Of course we get a little mention of some of our favorite Misfits, and there is a side character, Rhys,  that I can not wait for his story to be told.  Of course I have his happily ever after all planned out in my head, but we will just have to see if Garrett is on the same page as me...lol.

I give this book 4.5 flaming stars.
