My Thoughts:

Dream of You was a great novella, but I expected nothing less from one of my favorite authors!  I was happy to get back in to the Wait for You Series.  It's always such a great experience to revisit favorite characters.  

Abby Erickson is leaving the date from hell when she witnesses a murder.  The sexy Colton Anders is one of the detectives on the case.  Abby had a huge crush on him in high school, but didn't think he noticed her.  Now that Abby's life is in danger, Colton is keeping a close eye on her.  He also makes his attraction and interest towards her known.  However, Abby cannot begin to comprehend how such a gorgeous and sexy man could be interested in her...

Dream of You was a very entertaining, sexy, and sweet story.  I enjoyed Abby's character.  She was down to earth, and easy to relate to.  She had some issue's with self-esteem, and didn't feel beautiful or attractive enough for Colton.  I appreciated Ms. Armentrout giving her readers a woman with curves, and the typical insecurities that most woman face.

Colton Anders was downright scrumptious!  He was sweet, attentive, gentle, and made me swoon over and over again.  When he saw Abby, he saw beauty, and he made it his mission to make her see what he did.

The suspense of the plot was an added bonus, as was being reunited with Reese and Roxy from, Fall With Me. We even get a little bit of Jax and Calla, and I loved the interactions between Abby and her good friend Jillian.  These two loved reading, and discussing their favorite authors as well as attending book signings together, which I could relate to.  It just so happened that many of Abby's favorite authors, are mine too! 

My Rating:

I give, Dream of You, by Jennifer L. Armentrout, 4.5 Decadent Kisses, Consuming Desires, Second Chance at Love Filled Stars!  All of you readers who love the Wait for You series will love getting Colton's story!  He is just as dreamy as Reese, and I look forward to learning more about him and Abby in future installments of the Wait for You series.

Book Teasers:


     Colton leaned toward me with his gaze locked onto mine. “I didn’t know you in high school, but I knew of you.”
      “You did? 
      I can’t imagine it was anything interesting. I was boring as—” “I never got the impression you were boring,” he interrupted, and goodness, I could fall into those eyes and never come back out. So cheesy sounding, and if I saw it in one of my author’s books, I’d redline the hell out of that, but now I got it. It was possible. “I just thought you were this pretty girl who sat two seats behind me in history class and was shy.” 
     Several things occurred to me at once. He remembered that we shared history class together? Holy crap on a cracker. And he thought I’d been pretty? I was sure I probably weighed twenty pounds more back then and I wore these godawful glasses that were so trendy nowadays. 
     Colton was a flirt. 
     “Looking back, I wish I had the balls to talk to you then.” He returned his attention to his crepe while my jaw hit the table. “But you were with Kevin and…yeah, that’s not my style, you know?” He glanced in my direction. “You’re going to eat the crepes, right?” 
     “Yeah,” I murmured, cutting into one side. I forced myself to eat a bite, and it was like heaven just orgasmed in my mouth. Wow. That was inappropriate. I resisted a giggle. “What about you? You’ve been a cop this whole time?” 
     “Yep. It’s what I always wanted to do. Started off as a deputy, then became a detective for the county before transferring to the city. I love working as a detective, but with my hours all over the place, Reece, my brother, has pretty much straight up adopted my dog. She doesn’t even stay at my house anymore.” He finished off the second crepe with an impressive quickness and then settled back against the chair, stretching out his long legs. “Almost got married.” 
     Thank God I had just swallowed a piece of crepe because there was a good chance I would’ve choked. “Almost?” 
     “Was engaged.” He grinned, and I felt my tummy dip in response. “Nicole and I were together for…hell.” He glanced up at the ceiling, pursing his lips. “For about six years.” 
     Holy crap, six years? That was a long time. I wondered if she was the woman I’d seen him with at the movies that one time, but that was like, maybe a year ago. 
     “Got all the way down to planning the wedding date when we came to the realization that we wanted different things in life.”
