Publisher's Summary

Jonah considers himself the most boring person in existence. Even his dreams are boring; the most exciting dream he's ever had involved folding laundry. But then, in the middle of a dream about eating cereal, everything changes.

A faint memory of an unseen visitor, impressions that vanish upon waking, become dreams that leave Jonah exhausted, afraid, and determined to figure out who is turning his boring dreams into a terrifying game of cat and mouse.

Different, but good

The blurb really doesn't give much info and there weren't any written reviews, so I had no idea what to expect. I really couldn't tell that it was a romance from the blurb, nor that it was MM, even though it showed up in my recommendations along with other MM romances.
The mystery of who is chasing Jonah in his dreams is solved pretty quickly. The rest of the story is essentially the love story between Jonah and Morpheus. The sex scenes are more alluded to or fade to black than is my preference, though that really doesn't detract from the story. I enjoyed it enough to try more from this author.

Blurb doesn't do the story justice

From the blurb I thought that this was going to be some sort of psychological thriller or something, which it wasn't. This is actually a very fuzzy-good-feelings supernatural romance between Jonah and the guy who keeps showing up in his dreams.

I'm not sure how much I can say that doesn't count as a spoiler but this book really needs something more than the blurb gives.

Spoilers! (I think?)

Jonah, who usually has boring dreams of daily activities, suddenly starts having dreams about being chased by a man he can't see after that man shows up in a dream of him eating cereal. Being chased every night and not having any control over the dreams does freak him out but not to the extent the blurb made me think.

He eventually blows up at the guy (the adorable Morpheus, if you look up his name you'll more get an idea of who he is) and from there they start to form an actual relationship through the form of dreams when Jonah is asleep. Most of the story is them getting to know each other and each other's different realities. It's adorable and sometimes quite funny, especially with Jonah's best friend. He was my favorite side character.

The narrator wasn't the best I've heard but after a chapter or so I got used to it and started to like him.

I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who likes a modern feeling romance with supernatural elements and low angst.

Oh, and I love Morpheus's name for Jonah, "My lovely dreamer". So cute XD
