Angelo Giordano and Dylan Hart are more in love than ever, but their reality is far from ideal. With Dylan working in London, and Angelo recovering from chronic illness in Cornwall, they rarely spend more than few nights under the same sky.
Dylan is struggling. Being apart from Angelo is killing him, and he’s at the end of his rope. Angelo can’t live in London anymore, but can Dylan give up his whole life and move to a place that often feels like the end of the world?
As the end of a tough year approaches, they reach a crossroads. Dylan returns to Cornwall for Christmas and Angelo can’t imagine watching him leave again. Can the love that surrounds them on Whisper Farm show them the way home?
I love holiday novella’s that give us a glimpse into uncharted waters of the future. It’s even better when they include more than just one couple and we check in on the entire group. Like a family reunion with your favorite characters. I adored the Skin’s series and appreciated this token Leigh grants us. The focus may be with Dylan and Angelo but she brings the entire gang together…and it was just delightful. Well, of course, the happy string is held just above our heads for most of it but we snag it before the end.
As the title suggests, Dylan and Angelo are at a turning point. Things have been strained lately, living their lives together from afar. Angelo has accepted that he can’t manage his condition from the hustle bustle of the city any longer. But this realization comes with a terrifying reality. He can adjust to country life and take it in stride but living without Dylan isn’t a future he wishes to consider. He could never ask Dylan to give up his career and move to Whisper Farms to be with him. Dylan recognizes Angelo is healthier and happier living on the farm but he’s struggling to come to terms with…starting over. Faced with an enormous decision, he’s struggling to find any holiday spirit. But perhaps they are both just looking at things from the wrong angle?
I was so happy that Garrett brought all the boys back together again. I’m hoping this isn’t the last we see them but if so, I’m grateful she gave us this…celebration. That’s what the holiday season is all about, rejoicing in our blessings and embracing traditions, new or old. It was splendid returning to the farm. Angelo has found his purpose and becoming a fundamental part of the inner workings of Whisper Farms has given him a new spark. Dylan can’t help but notice the changes in him and is pleased but scared. He can’t take this away from him. But then he realizes…he doesn’t have to. I loved the tenderness and passion. I savored the growth between all of the men. I melted with the sexy bits. There’s a special party that made me squee with delight. It just made me…happy.
This is a continuation of Dream and not a stand-alone. I would also encourage you to read the previously released stories in the series first, as all of the couples are present here. There is a bit of extra heat but no sharing if that’s a concern of yours. And if they listened to my nagging insistence that they TALK they could have saved themselves some grief. Ha! Luckily, important words are exchanged.
If you are a fan of Skins or Garrett Leigh, you need this little prezzie.
