Format: Paperback
The first time Joey Vines sees Braeden Shay, a Sidhe warrior, he is five years old. Braeden tells him that he is a faery but Joey's mother has the strangest reaction before warning him that faeries do not exist and he should not talk to him again. Braeden appears in Joey's room the next night as a firefly/faery and he is enchanted and in awe of him; when he is allowed to touch his wings he is so moved the event changes his life. Braeden promises to return for him when he's ready to assume his heritage but 20 years later Joseph, who now has a pair of wings tattooed on his back to remind him of Braeden is still waiting, until one fateful day when his life is transformed. Joseph is sent home from work that day because he is unwell but on his way home there is a strange occurrence before he falls into a deep sleep and he imagines that a firefly is hovering near him.

Joseph wakes up in a cabin in the wilderness where Braeden has taken him and he meets him again but as an adult this time, and he feels that he's living his dream with one very significant difference - he's attracted to him. When they kiss and Braeden wraps his wings around him he is transported into another world, one of sensuality and desire and longing. Joseph soon finds out that faeries are not that different from human men in terms of their sexual responses and he has the most wonderful sensual experience of his life. The lovemaking between them is breathtaking, intense and magical as they both appear to weave spells around each other in a mixture of lust and a more ethereal bonding of their minds and hearts.

Braeden later tells Joseph about his heritage, that his true father is a Lord of the Unseelie Court and he is half fae with an ability to control the plant kingdom.

I am the biggest fan of fairies, m/m romance, fairy tales, fantasy, and just an overall good story. This has it all with a side of adventure, action, and magic. I can't even begin to tell you how much I loved this, and I can't wait to read it again. I thought the characters were developed well, the plot was engrossing, and the overall product was just magnanimous.

Maybe it's because it's like one of VERY few books out there about gay fairies and my love of them supersedes everything else, but this was just.....ugh...fantastic! I mean, there are books about gay vampires (too many in fact), wolverines, and elves, but where are all the fairies?! Well, for starters, the sexiest, most devoted ones are here. Its a must have for any fan of fairies and gay romance.......oh, and the sex scenes were good too (who knew vines could do that).

On a side note, isn't that book cover just gorgeous?! The book is just as mesmerizing, believe me.

I picked up this book because I loved the cover. Also it goes towards my GLBT challenges so that is a bonus. Overall this is a sweet little book with a simple story line. It does contain explicit M/M sex, so this is just a head up for people who are uncomfortable with that.

Braeden is a Sidhe warrior exiled from fairy; he has spent his whole life watching over Joey. Joey thinks he's human but soon finds out he is a half-sidhe that has powerful plant magic; he saw Braeden when he was younger and has been obsessed with the Sidhe ever since then. When Joey finds out his parentage he also discovers that he is being hunted by a powerful evil Sidhe.

Initially I will say that this book started out as a book with a loose plot that was basically a vehicle to explicit sex scenes between the two male characters. As the book continued this improved. Blue's characters (mainly Braeden, Joey, and Joey's mother) are all likable, caring characters, that are easy to read about. Blue did an excellent job of keeping the language styles of Braeden and Joey separate and this helps distinguish their very different backgrounds (Braeden centuries old and Joey modern and young). The plot is predictable and simple, but overall well done.

In general this book was a quick read. It was a sweet book, nothing was ever too dire for the characters, and all of the characters were loving and understanding. The world Blue creates is realistic but not incredibly well filled out. I did like that all of the characters were so open about their sexuality and that the supporting characters were also understanding. The setting is also well described and the book takes place in a variety of beautiful and lush settings; Blue does an excellent job describing her settings.

I love faeries, I'm cool with almost anything m/m. Yet this book felt flat to me.

Maybe it was just the shortness in length. Maybe it felt awkward to read sex immediately after Braeden's and Joey's first meeting. Maybe the characters just didn't feel developed to me (which again relates in part back to length).

It's wonderful that this author featured a person of colour as the main protagonist. I also enjoyed the descriptions of the faeries (and it makes actual sense that they wouldn't be clothed to me). And there's nothing really blatant that I could point to in Ms. Blue's writing style that I'd consider weak in terms of grammar.

It just felt like the conflict wasn't really much of a conflict. It was strange to find that it was pretty much over by 70% (in terms of ebook length). I had to really force myself to continue reading to get to the end. The only part of the story that seemed to have any emotional effect on me at all was the epilogue as it related to Evangeline.

Overall, this was a huge disappointment to me.
