Rating: 4 of 5 Stars


With a very active imagination and passion for all things history, University of California senior and veteran on the swim team Gabriel Mason often finds himself traveling to distant lands and times. There’s always one constant in Gabe’s dreams: a nameless man whose love completes Gabe’s soul. Gabe is waiting for someone special in his “real” life as well, and his best friend Phil is determined to find Gabe his elusive knight in shining armor.

Nick Jackson, a university alum and Olympic swimming champion, immediately recognizes the quiet young man from the swim team and convinces Gabe to give them a chance at building something special. Considering the palpable attraction between them, Nick surprises himself by quickly agreeing to take their budding relationship slow. Unfortunately, real life is not a fantasy, and Nick’s demanding schedule as a professional athlete and Gabe’s obligations to the swim team and his degree make finding time to spend together difficult.

Have the two men found everlasting love, or will it all prove to be just another dream?


Sometimes you need a sweet story where nothing bad happens. You need something to remind you that not everyone in the world gets screwed over. You need to remember that drama is the exception, not the rule. When you are in the mood for such a story, I would like to recommend In Dreams He Came by Trina Lane.

Gabe and Nick are sweet. There is no other way to describe them. For some, they will be too much. There are pet names galore. However, from the moment they met, I wanted them to have a happily ever after. They are both genuinely nice guys.

They are very different but have enough in common that you can easily see why they should be together. I adore Gabe. He is quirky and innocent, but smart as a whip. You know I adore a good geeky character.

There is absolutely no conflict in this story. Once Gabe and Nick are together, they are together. They weather every storm as a unit. They are committed even when there is distance between them.

This story will not be for everyone, but for those who want or need something light and sweet, this is a good one.
