Received a wonderful 5 Star review today for Darkness Falls from Carly’s Book Reviews:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Matthew and Daniel are best friends and co-workers, but their lives are shadowed by darkness. Matthew is in love with his best friend, but afraid to reveal his feelings and lose their friendship. When Daniel is injured on-set and loses his eyesight, he no longer feels that his life has purpose.
When the proximity of caring for Daniel finally brings Matthew’s true feelings for his friend to light, Daniel is overwhelmed by Matthew’s love, and returns it wholeheartedly. Unfortunately, the darkness is still there, clouding their relationship, as Daniel’s inability to adjust to his blindness threatens their new bond.
An emotionally engaging love story, DARKNESS FALLS is well written, with flawed yet honest characters. When life changes unexpectedly, rolling with the punches and maintaining a positive attitude is a hard thing to do. Love is at the foundation of this character driven romance, but just like in real life, love isn’t the band-aid that makes their troubles disappear. Filled with intrigue, sensuality, raw emotionalism and truth; darkness mixes with light and despair is challenged by joy in this touching story.
Matthew Tucker is a successful actor on a hit television show, his career on the rise. Life is good. What more could he want? Daniel Westman, that’s what – his co-star and close friend.
Matthew’s attraction to Daniel grows day by day, feeling there’s something between them, just under the surface. But months go by, with Matthew afraid to tell Daniel he was falling in love with him. Because if he was wrong and Matthew was looking too deeply into it… he’d lose his best friend. So instead Matthew longs for Daniel in silence, until an accident on set may leave Daniel permanently blind. With his friend hurt, scared and confused, his life possibly forever altered, Matthew never wavers from Daniel’s side, no matter how difficult it gets.
His dedication brings them closer than ever before, but is it possible to find happiness, and love, in the wake of a tragedy? Or has Matthew’s hesitation cost him that chance and he’ll lose Daniel to the darkness instead?
