In a trendy San Francisco art gallery, out-of-towner Vin Vanbly witnesses an act of compassion that compels him to make investment banker Perry Mangin a mysterious offer: in exchange for a weekend of complete submission, Vin will restore Perry's "kingship" and transform him into the man he was always meant to be. Despite intense reservations, Perry agrees, setting in motion a chain of events that will test the limits of his body, seduce his senses, and fray his every nerve, (perhaps occasionally breaking the law) while Vin guides him toward his destiny as "the one true king." Even as Perry rediscovers old grief and new joys within himself, Vin and his shadowy motivations remain enigmas: who is this offbeat stranger guiding them from danger to hilarity to danger? To emerge triumphant, Perry must overcome the greatest challenge alone: embracing his devastating past. But can he succeed by Sunday's sunrise deadline? How can he possibly evolve from an ordinary man into King Perry? A Bittersweet Dreams title: It's an unfortunate truth: love doesn't always conquer all. Regardless of its strength, sometimes fate intervenes, tragedy strikes, or forces conspire against it. These stories of romance do not offer a traditional happy ending, but the strong and enduring love will still touch your heart and maybe move you to tears.

I... I have no words. This book took me over 2 weeks to read. I just couldn't sit still and read it for more than 2 hours at the most. I figured since it has such great ratings, and I couldn't find an actual fault anywhere, the problem is probably me. And then, that last 20% happened. And my mind wa...
I can’t explain what this book is. I can’t explain what’s happening in it. I can’t help you with choosing this book to read. I can’t even tell you why I liked it. But holy hell, I did. I liked this book so much I walked straight into LOVE and CONFUSION land. And I have no idea why. Well, I know ...
This book was reviewed in November 2013 on Goodreads. This book was hard for me. It came highly recommended from a trusted recommender. Unfortunately, I spent the whole book vacillating between "What in THEE hell?" and bored like whoa. My "what the hell" moments weren't entertaining, edge of my se...
