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.

My Opinion

Abby married her high school sweetheart and had a great job in the city- New York City. Then her parents died in a car crash and her hubby died in another car crash. What are the odds? So, she did what any gal would do and moved closer to her hometown. She bought a cute town house and after four years of mourning was attempting to get her life back on track. Which is why she said yes to the date- the date that she walks out on. It is then that she sees a horrific crime and ends up running from the criminals. Enter the detectives- one of which Abby went to school with Colton Anders. He is going to protect her from the criminals, but who will protect her from him?

Abby is adorable. She is well, every gal that I have ever met. Her insecurities are real, and she owns them. She has only been with one man her entire life and that man loved her. He was gone though and there was no one to love her anymore. This can make a gal even more insecure. Abby knows that this is her problem, she openly admits it.

Colton is even more adorable. He has always been attracted to Abby but she was taken. Now, that she is in danger she is even more attractive to him. He doesn’t understand where her insecurities are coming from but he wants to help. He likes her.

Bad guys are after Abby. Evil, bad guys with a gun. Evil, bad guys with a gun that are willing and ready to kill her. Holy smokes that is enough to send a gal into shock. Abby though she has already been through a lot. So she puts her big girl pants on and deals. I like that she doesn’t panic. I like that she looks at the situation as what it is a situation.

Dream of You is one of those stories that comes along and moves you. Not only does it move you but it shows you some realities of our world that we don’t want to admit. It tackles issues that we as a society hid, are ashamed of and try hard oh so very hard to not bring attention to it. I enjoyed this story. I loved getting to see how Colton and Abby hook up. I love knowing their story.

My Rating 5 stars out of 5

Favorite Quote "I always thought being told you should be more confident, because confidence is sexy, was like getting a bitch slap in the face.”
