Summary from Decadent
Mary's obsession with the boy band Caelan began in high school. She and her friends went to their concerst, picked their favourite band member, and plastered their walls with posters. Mary's obsession continued during her college years, but soon was placed in a box of memories as she matured, fell in love, and built a life with her husband.   

But Happily Ever After is elusive. When she suffers a horrific loss, can she depend on her old dreams to salvage her mind? Can she wander through those memories and still keep reality within her grasp?
Nayuleska's thoughts

Mary's teen obsession fades as real life brings her great joy, or so the reader reader thinks. The strong emotions Mary has are spot on, not melodramatic. My favourite character changed somewhat in light of the end, with unforeseen plot twists that made me gasp. I'd totally missed that it can be classed as horror - which is a good thing because I avoid horror at the moment, and I'm glad I didn't avoid this read!

You can find out more about Graylin on her website.
