A little about this book!

Edward and Gene were instantly drawn to each other when they met at college in Maryland. Fast friends, they developed a "closer than brothers" relationship. But then Edward began to feel more for Gene. In 1967, those kind of feelings would not be tolerated. Not even by Edward himself. 

Gene always thought he was asexual. He had never been attracted to anyone... until he met Edward. He dreamed of Edward as more than a friend throughout college, but he knew Edward would not welcome that kind of attention. So Gene wasn't surprised when Edward reacted badly to a drunken kiss just before Edward's graduation. He was surprised when Edward moved to Florida and had little to do with him for years afterward. 

When fate finally brings them back together, Edward is married and has a little girl. Gene gladly accepts the role of "Uncle Gene," happy to have Edward in his life in any capacity. Together, they face all the trials and tribulations life throws at them, including the death of Edward's wife, and as each grows and matures, their life views change. The relationship they've secretly wanted all along is closer than ever, and if Edward can break free from his homophobic upbringing and admit his feelings for Gene, there might still be a chance for them to share their lives in the way they both desire. 

A 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.

Here's what Bec thought...

Wow, just wow! I just finished this book, and I can't tell you how profoundly I was affected! This is a beautiful story of two men who are instantly attracted to each other, but through circumstances and ones upbringing, they don't act on it for years. This story moves up through the lives of these two men, up's and down's, high's and low's, other relationships and tragedy, yet almost the whole way these two men were in each others lives in some capacity. A moving, haunting story of enduring love in many different forms, and the beauty that is uncovered when love blooms to full flower when life is no longer permitted to get in the way. The ending is, as stated in the summary above, bittersweet, but a love like this is meant to be shared, so I hope you will take a chance on this work of art, I will be forever glad I did! Thank you Brynn, for a first class winner!

So, who is Brynn Stein?

"Brynn Stein has always loved to write. Fan fiction, original fiction, whatever. While Brynn wrote in numerous genres – everything from mystery, to contemporary, to supernatural – she had always tended toward strong male characters. And then she discovered ‘slash’, male/male romance, and all those strong male characters were finally allowed to express their love for one another. It seems that there are always at least two characters clamoring to tell Brynn their story.

Brynn lives in Virginia with one of her two two-legged children, and two four-legged ones. Her supportive family encourages her writing and provides a sounding board for fledgling stories. When she isn’t writing, Brynn teaches children with special needs. In free time, when such a thing exists, she reads anything she can get her hands on, and haunts bookstores. She draws and paints, and enjoys the outdoors—especially if she can get to the beach—and is always thinking about her next story."

We've reviewed some of her other great books, including Haunted , and Living Again .
She's quite the talented author and we were thrilled to hear about this book.  You can check out the reviews to these books and others on our page with the search feature.  The links are to the dreamspinner buy page.  Now, on to the prizes!!
