A six-year downward spiral into a world of lies and deception leads to the end of one man’s life when self-discovery crosses the line between being the perfect son or following his heart.
Jimmy Miller never intended to lead a double life starting the day he fell in love with Darian, but his parents’ divorce, fighting in school, and constantly keeping secrets for his closeted best friend and protector, Matt, force his hand. Jimmy finds the demands too great to withstand and ends it all prematurely, leaving behind an angry best friend and a shattered lover.
Matt and Darian cling to one another in the aftermath of their loss, forging a new friendship immediately tested by the truths of their relationships with Jimmy that are hidden in the pages of Jimmy’s journals. Will Matt and Darian discover what truly happened to their friend? And will this tragedy birth something beautiful between them as they learn the balance between life, family, and friendship when love is simply not enough?
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.
Oh Lord. Kleenex needed. This book will wrench your heart in so many ways that you’ll be angry, hopeful, disgusted, and wish that life and humans were nicer than they sometimes are. When you read what is between these pages, be prepared to have your view on people brought painfully to the surface, and you’ll maybe have a long hard look at yourself too and endeavour to be a better person, to look beyond the surface and watch what you say and how you act, because although a person may appear to be taking everything in their stride, the pitiful fact is they might not. They might be hiding a world of hurt, which leads to them feeling vulnerable, lonely, and with no option but to want to leave the terrible, cruel world behind. A tragic tale, but one that will hopefully inspire you to do better and think before you speak/act.
