Blurb: Logan Maddock moves to the small, backwoods town of Blackwell, Wisconsin in hopes of starting over after the devastating death of his boyfriend, Sebastian. After a year of depression, and multiple thoughts of suicide, Logan is still struggling to find a reason to keep living.
After buying an old manor house to renovate, in hopes of distracting his thoughts from his loss and grief, Logan is shocked when – during his first night in the house – he has an extremely vivid erotic dream of Sebastian, his first since Sebastian’s death. In the dream, Sebastian seems startled that Logan can “see” him.
Logan is convinced it’s all a dream, and wakes up with a renewed sense of loss. But as Logan soon learns…Blackwell is not the typical, little town it appears to be.

Review: This is one of those steamy yet bittersweet types of stories. This short starts with a very steamy sex scene between Logan and Sebastian; it’s in italics so it’s clear that it’s a memory. We quickly find out that after this had happened, Sebastian had died and Logan lives with the regret of thinking he had more time to say “I love you” one last time. Now Logan knows he must move on after losing the love of his life.
This is such an emotional read but really, very good too. It’s easy to see that Logan is battling in moving on, yet at the same time, he can still hear Sebastian in his head. When Sebastian reappears, I don’t know whether to be upset or amused at the reunion – it’s incredibly sweet.
The explanation is odd and leaves me questioning what happens in “the real world” within the bounds of this story. Other than that an enjoyable read. However, be warned, there will be tears!
