Brunelli felt it was time to give up the fast pace life he
was living in New York City and move back home to Kansas.
For one, his family needed him. His father will need help
after his recent heart surgery and with his sister married
with her own family, it was only fair that Gio step up and
help out. The trepidation to his homecoming was facing Rafe,
the man he truly loved and his father’s best friend.
Gio’s Dream follows the sentimental style of
storytelling that in my opinion is trademark for Carol
Lynne. Gio and Rafe spent years pining for a love they both
felt could never be revealed to each other and those around
them. Gio is the son of Rafe’s best friend and he is
seventeen years his junior. Both men were afraid of
revealing secrets that could cause a rift between them and
Nino Brunelli, the man they both loved and respected. Along
with Gio and Rafe discovering their mutual attraction for
each other, there is also mystery and suspense. Although I
was able to figure out the ‘who’ of the mystery, the ‘why’
still surprised me. Readers looking for a schmaltzy romance
with a bit of an edge will enjoy Gio’s Dream.
I certainly did.
