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?
Short and sweet. That is my assessment of Darkness Falls by Jamie Lynn Miller. Matthew and Daniel are good friends, such good friends that Matthew wants more… but he is scared. Then one day an accident on set changes the direction of both of their lives.
Matthew goes from friend to care-taker to more over the course of a few days when Daniel robbed of his sight by said accident. There isn’t enough background to truly feel their connection; we are told of it in short expository scenes. In those scenes, we find out that Matthew wants more. The time jump again robs us of an opportunity to truly connect with Matthew and Daniel, individually and as a couple.
That all being said; I enjoyed this story for what it was. It isn’t deep. It isn’t gut wrenching. It is sweet and a good diversion in between some of the heavier things I tend to read.
