Aden Ingle has dreamed of his perfect man since he was a fourteen year-old boy. Now that he’s an adult and a successful restaurateur, that hasn’t changed; he’s still in love with his dream man. The idea of his perfect boyfriend has sunk more potential relationships that he cares to remember. In fact, Aden’s so enamored of the concept that he’s willing to wait for this man to walk into his life. That is until he meets Logan Price at a Hotel/Restaurant Trade Show and he’s smitten and with that one chance meeting, all thoughts of his dream man fly out the window.

It doesn’t take Aden long to learn that a flesh and blood man is much better than any fantasy one, but the problem is that he and Logan only have a few days together to cement their relationship. When the tradeshow ends, Aden will head back to Missouri and Logan will fly back to his upscale restaurant in California. Over the next weeks, through brief visits and frequent phone calls, the two men become closer. Finally, the time comes when Aden must decide whether he can uproot his entire life to be with Logan, or whether he’ll stay at home and wait for the man of his dreams to walk through his door.

Dreaming of You is the second release by author Ethan Day and it’s bright, entertaining, lively and funny and has a deep strain of romance running through it. The plot of this contemporary M/M romance is well-written and fast faced, with interesting secondary characters and snappy dialogue that had me chuckling.

Aden is definitely a dreamer, so much so that at first I was concerned he’d let a great guy like Logan slip through his fingers, just because he didn’t ‘look’ like his dream man. I was thrilled when he finally let his love life move from the world of fantasy to that of reality. I did have my moment of fear near the end, and I refuse to divulge what happened. Suffice it to say, that during that portion of the story, I wanted to shake Aden and ask what he thought he was doing.

Logan is actually the perfect partner for Aden and they make a great couple, with lots in common. I just wish that I could have seen some of the story from Logan’s viewpoint.

I look forward to Mr. Day’s next release. He has several works in progress listed on his website that sound very intriguing. Take a look for yourself.
