Abby Erickson isn't looking for a one-night stand, a relationship, or anything that involves any one-on-one time, but when she witnesses a shocking crime, she's thrust into the hands of the sexiest man she's ever seen - Colton Anders. His job is to protect her, but with every look, every touch, and every simmering kiss, she's in danger of not only losing her life but her heart also.

  
Dream of You - Teaser 3



   I was instantly excited going into this because Jennifer is already one of my favorite authors! She knows exactly what readers are looking for in a book. She always manages to write some of the most beautiful romances and Dream Of You is no exception!

   We follow a never-before-seen protagonist named Abby who is walking back home from a horribly-gone date when she stumbles upon something she shouldn't have seen. Simply wrong place at the wrong time. She's almost shot when the the men see that she has become a witness of their crime. But she manages to run away and inform the law enforcement. That's when she runs into Colton, a guy she went to high school with and had a crush on.

   Abby was a character that I immediately connected with. She has insecurities and that made her seem more realistic. She's not model thin like most main character females are made out to be. She also reminded me of Avery and Calla from the first and third book in the series because they were the main characters that weren't so confident about themselves. And I think readers will easily connect with them. Not that I didn't love Teresa and Roxy because I did but they were more outgoing. 

   Colton was such a sweet guy. He's also a very sexy detective. And he's very protective of Abby. I love how he constantly tells Abby not to worry about her appearance and that she's beautiful. He's such a perfect guy that it almost seems unrealistic. Why can't a lot of guys in real life be like him?! And his brother, Reece, that's in the book, Fall With Me. It's kind of weird that I'm in love with his younger brother as well but they're both so swoony!

   The romance was really breathtaking. I could easily see the chemistry between Abby and Colton. The sexy times were very fun times! However, I think the romance plot seemed to be the focus of the entire book than the story with Abby being in danger and needing protection. Not that I'm complaining because I'm all for the romance.

   Overall, Dream Of You is just amazeballs!! I devoured it in like three days. It was a very quick read and I thought the romance was just to die for. I also loved seeing some of the old characters from this series. And I really hope to see Abby and Colton in the last two books in this series!


4 Stars: A Great Read!


Excerpt:

   “Jillian—”

   “I just don’t want to end up doing what my entire family does. Everything is about the Academy, and that’s not what I want to do. The only way I’m going to escape that is by leaving now. Anyway,” she said, pursing her lips as a thoughtful look crossed her face. “One of the things you never really see in a romance book is a woman who has self-esteem issues. I mean, I’m sure they’re out there, but they’re few and far between. Like they can have eating disorders, post-traumatic stress from sexual assault or mental abuse. They can be sold into sex trafficking and they can carry epic amounts of grief. We have female characters who have suffered every loss imaginable and ones who are scarred physically and mentality, but where in the hell are the average women? Ones who look in the mirror and cringe a little? Like, why are all those others acceptable to women, but reading or knowing another woman who has a low self-esteem is, like, worse than all that drama llama? Dude, I get reading for wish fulfillment, but you’ve got to have a little reality in the story.” 

   Brushing her bangs out of her eyes, Jillian exhaled loudly and then continued. “Whatever. It doesn’t matter. You’re normal. I’m normal. We’re not perfect and not having the greatest confidence doesn’t make you any less of a person.”

   What Jillian said was so true. 

   Holy crap, the raw truth of it all floored me. 

   Women wanted other women to have high self-esteem and confidence. No one wanted to ever admit that their confidence was lacking, that they had a hard time looking at themselves in the mirror. 

   It was wrong that we weren’t able to have our weak moments. That we had to hide the fact that we were uncomfortable with our imperfections. That the journey to loving yourself doesn’t exclude recognizing there were days when you just didn’t want to see yourself naked. 

   And that there were worse things than having some confidence issues.

   I glanced over at Jillian. This was one of those moments when I forgot that she was so young, because damn, she really could be a hell of a lot wiser than me. “You’re right.”

   Her face transformed prettily when she smiled. “I know.”
   I laughed. “And modest.”
