Soulmate who comes out of dream, Secret organization full of people with special abilities, Clueless virgin MC, time traveling gone amok

JOON is mostly content with his orderly, but lonely life until a chance encounter at a cafe turns his life sideways. Before he knows it, he’s caught up in a secret organization of individuals with special abilities. And he discovers his hitherto unknown biological parents and finds a man he'd been dreaming about.

TREY has been in love with Joon all his life. His life is complete; with a childhood full of adventures, a membership in a secret organization, annoying but fabulous special abilities, and the love of his life. Except there is just a small problem. His soulmate doesn’t remember him.

As they meet for the first time, their love for each other grows, but they discover hidden threats against Joon that can tear their love apart. Will Joon and Trey find strength to overcome the darkness?

Trey once again wrapped his arm around him. His insides warmed when J breathed out and relaxed in his arms.

“Do you like the band?” Trey lowered his head so that his lips were closer to J’s ear.

J gave a little shiver and shifted to look into Trey’s face. 

“They’re amazing.”

J didn’t say more, but his eyes held awe, the look of a budding fan. The world fell away, and time froze as Trey stood with J in his arms. As Trey was lost in the haze of love, the lights dimmed once more, and the four band members walked out to take their positions on the stage. Minuit started their second set with an upbeat song. J subtly swayed his body to the rhythm, his eyes riveted on the stage. Trey moved with him, their bodies in sync. He breathed in, catching a whiff of vanilla, a touch of grapefruit, and a scent unique to J. He closed his eyes while his mind bottled the fragrance of J deep inside his memory.

Trey opened his eyes again when the second song started. A dark ballad, a slow love song of a vampire in love with a mortal who loved him but couldn’t give up the sunlight. The floor opened up as the lights dimmed even further to complement the haunting melody. Several couples appeared on the floor, their entwined bodies moving sinuously.

Trey lowered his head. “Dance with me?”

J froze for a moment, and Trey’s heart skipped a beat. Too much, too soon?

J’s face slowly lifted, and his chocolate eyes locked on to him. Trey’s breath hitched. J’s body hesitantly turned in his arms, and J’s arms reached out to pull him close. Their arms wrapped around each other as their bodies fitted together like two pieces of a puzzle. Their feet moved synchronously in a waltz, their breathing even and harmonious. J closed his eyes as Trey’s face gravitated toward him. Only a few millimeters separated their lips as the people and the club faded around them.

Author's Bio:

Arian lives in the nostalgic rainy city of Seattle in the Pacific Northwest of the US with her loving partner, five adorable stuffed penguins, all with their own proper names, and one imaginary Maine Coon cat.

She began writing romance novels in high school primarily to entertain her romance reading buddies, but it soon became her hobby and passion. She’s just never been confident enough until later in her life to put herself out there.

She loves to live in her own head and vicariously experience the lives of her characters. How else would she be able to live half a dozen lives at once?

She’s grateful for her caring partner who’s been nothing but encouraging despite her spending hours inside her head and her imaginary furry friends who mostly don't throw tantrums when she happens to be buried in her writing.

Sheena was intrigued by the book so she added it to her TBR and shared her review here: http://www.mmromancereviewed.com/2022/02/dream-bound-by-arian-williams-6-24.html
