Eyes on Sparrow by Evan Gilbert

release day review



Dreamspinner Presents


High school grad Morgan Breck is riding out his last summer at home before he goes off to pursue the course of study his parents want him to take—at a college they want him to attend. His days are boring and lonely until a construction crew arrives to build a house across the street.

One of the workers is the sexy Sparrow Smith, and he quickly catches Morgan’s eye. Morgan is surprised to discover he and Sparrow share a mutual attraction; one that leads to smoking hot sex, the kind that leaves the room sweltering.

The guys’ friends-with-benefits relationship soon grows into something more, and Morgan realizes he can’t live without Sparrow. But summer’s end is rapidly approaching, and his parents are determined he leave for college, which will take him hundreds of miles away from the man he’s falling in love with.

Standing up to his parents has never been easy. In fact, Morgan’s never done it before. Ever. Morgan must work up the courage to voice his needs, or he’ll have no choice but to let Sparrow go.


Morgan is lazing about on his last summer vacation before attending Bible College – where his folks want him to go. He sees a construction crew building houses across the street and falls in lust with “Dream Boy” a Native American who we later find out is named Sparrow.

Sparrow is just as interested in Morgan and the two start an affair. It looks like things will have to end with the fall but Morgan finds a way to stand up for what he truly wants.


This was a sweet, sexy, short story about finding love and being true to your beliefs.

I enjoyed it.
