Spotlight on An Infatuation by Joe Cosentino (Published by Dreamspinner Press, February 4, 2015, 106 pages)

an infatuation

Blurb: With his ten-year high school reunion approaching, Harold wonders whether Mario will be as muscular, sexy, and tantalizing as he remembers. As a teenager, it was love at first sight for Harold while tutoring football star Mario, until homophobia and bullying drove Mario deep into the closet. Now they’re both married men. Mario, a model, is miserable with his producer wife, while Harold, a teacher, is perfectly content with his businessman husband, Stuart. When the two meet again, will the old flame reignite, setting Harold’s comfortable life ablaze? How can Harold be happy with Stuart when he is still infatuated with his Adonis, his first love, Mario? Harold faces this seemingly impossible situation with inimitable wit, tenderness, and humor as he attempts to reconcile the past and the future. 

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.

  1. Through most of high school I was infatuated with a guy a year ahead of me. He played tenor saxophone and was a state champion cross country runner. He was a sort of friend, but never seemed to think of me in any other way. His friends knew (without me telling them), but he was clueless.


  2. When I was in highschool, I was infatuated with an older guy, who turned out to be one of my best friend’s uncle. He didn’t live in the same city so we met by chance. I found out when I was at her house and he appeared. A big surprise, lol!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Two good friends and I all had big crushes (maybe not strong enough for an infatuation?) on the same guy! So we decided to just let it be. No guy was worth ending a friendship.


  5. My parents were good friends of one of the popular guys in highschool. Everyone wanted to date him including me. However, he only saw me as a little sister which was devastating. He was 2 years older then me and when I graduated he came to my open house and I decided I would tell him about my crush. I was sure he already knew as his best friend always teased me about it. He was a really good actor or he really did not know because he told me he would have gone out with me if he had known.


  6. I lost my first love because of my stupidity. MY BFF told me lies about HIM and I believed her. I will never forgive myself for it. Thank you for the giveaway
