Divorce is a big change… But there are bigger ones…
A few months after his divorce and many failed blind dates, Greg Fairchild met Tanner Williams. What started out as a good friendship unexpectedly turned into something that Greg didn't know what to do with…attraction. Why would he be attracted to a man? He had been a ladies man back in the day. He was married for more than 20 years—to a woman… He fathered three children with that woman…. He was a Republican!
Was this unexpected development a mid-life crisis? Or had he been living a lie all these years?

Book four in the Dream Series by Isabelle Peterson, we follow the story of Greg, Elizabeth’s ex-husband. This can be read as a standalone, but I recommend you read the first three beforehand.
Elizabeth Fairchild was married to Greg Fairchild for over twenty years. Tired of being ignored and unsatisfied, she leaves him and finds a new life in New York.
In Unexpected Dreams, we get to discover, along with Greg himself, why he was never a good husband.
Turns out, he’s gay.
Yep, that’s right. And famous Chicago Smoke soccer player Tanner Williams helps him realize that. After one kiss, Greg cannot ignore the feelings his body has for this sexy man.
I loved this book! I have always hated Greg. He was a terrible husband, but finding out that he couldn’t really help it, that his body wasn’t wired that way, I feel for him. I loved learning about Greg! I’ve found out that he’s an amazing, charming, smart, and good guy. When he falls, he falls hard and he only wants the best for those around him. Why do all the good ones have to be gay?
And Tanner! Wow, Tanner is sweet too! I’d love to be a fly on the wall watching those two interact!
The thing I really liked about this book, not just that it’s M/M, but Isabelle can write some pretty hot blow job scenes. I mean, probably some of the hottest oral I’ve ever read. Again, fly on the wall!!!
I also love how in this book, and every other book she’s written, most of the chapter is in Greg’s point of view, then in some chapters, the last few paragraphs switch to Tanner’s, or for one chapter, Elizabeth’s point of view. I hate reading dual points of view, especially if it’s repeating something that’s already happened, but Izzy does an amazing job with this!
Five stars! Can’t wait for Kevin’s book!

About Isabelle Peterson
I started out as a screenwriter - and still am - but after i started Fictional Boyfriends on Facebook, a story started growing in my mind.. one to be told in a book.
I am lucky to have an adoring husband & two extremely talented and bright teens & a scrumptious 9 pound dog. They are all so super supportive of all my writing and I couldn't do it without them.
I live about an hour from New York City.
