Matthew Tucker is a successful actor on a hit television show, his career on the rise. Life is good. What more could he want? Daniel Westman, that’s what – his co-star and close friend.
Matthew’s attraction to Daniel grows day by day, feeling there’s something between them, just under the surface. But months go by, with Matthew afraid to tell Daniel he was falling in love with him. Because if he was wrong and Matthew was looking too deeply into it…he’d lose his best friend. So instead Matthew longs for Daniel in silence, until an accident on set may leave Daniel permanently blind. With his friend hurt, scared and confused, his life possibly forever altered, Matthew never wavers from Daniel’s side, no matter how difficult it gets.
His dedication brings them closer than ever before, but is it possible to find happiness, and love, in the wake of a tragedy? Or has Matthew’s hesitation cost him that chance and he’ll lose Daniel to the darkness instead?


Freya’s Book Brief

Matthew and Daniel are stars of a TV show. From day one they clicked and formed a close friendship. A tragic accident on set leaves Daniel blind. Matthew is there for his friend.

From the start, Matthew is protective of Danny. Helping his friend also meant that he had to be up close and personal with him. That, in turn, brought to the fore feelings of a more pronounced nature towards his co-star. Matthew had liked Danny for a while, but with Danny’s condition, he didn’t want to take advantage – inciting emotions of guilt. Nevertheless, Matthew stays with Danny through thick and thin.

There’s a nice combination of serious and humorous moments laced with some detailed descriptions. These are appropriate given that the smallest things count for someone who can’t see. They bring to light the frustrations of getting through everyday actions without sight.

For the most part, all bases and eventualities are covered, with only a couple of areas left to assumptions. This is a short story and as such doesn’t go into huge depth with the blindness issue. The tale stays focussed on the characters and the love that develops given despite the circumstances. With Matt and Danny, I got to have a glimpse of the trauma associated with having one of your senses ripped from you and learning to cope without it. The emotional turmoil along with some H O T action is something Jamie Lynn Miller writes really well.

I found Darkness Falls to be a sweet short story with caring characters. One to warm the cockles of the heart.
