When Brian Matheson dies at nineteen, his soul is in limbo. He has one chance to redeem himself before he’s thrown into a nasty pit. All Brian has to do is save the life of Kevin Anderson, a boy he and his friends tormented for being gay.
Kevin thought he’d finally escaped bullying. But his college roommate, Chuck, and his homophobic pals, prove him wrong. Now he can only wait for another room to open up—and try to keep his eyes off sexy, uber-straight Chuck.
Chuck is struggling to keep up the tough-guy façade everyone expects, but being trapped in a dorm room with the prettiest twink he’s ever seen isn’t helping him keep his feelings hidden.
If Brian can untangle this mess, he’ll deserve his wings.

Wow, I seriously loved this one.It reminded me a lot of Unwrapping Hank. It's useless to deny it: I love hunky and apparently tough guys who are marshmallows inside they and lose their marbles for the twink but are so insecure they can't push themselves to reach for what they desire. The idea is hot...
This one is a little bit different ... probably because it starts with Brian realizing that he died and he is going to be judged. Usually, then the story veers into a rather paranormal realm, maybe the ghost getting second chance with the boy he likes, or something like that. Interestingly, it doesn...
4.5 StarsSo yeah. We all know how I feel about Eli Easton. I jumped at the chance to read and review this short tale from Dreamspinner’s Daily Dose Mended collection. And as always, I’m very glad I did. This story is vaguely reminiscent of her earliest genre story, Before I Wake, published under Tor...
