high school, and they suddenly meet in the police station where Abby is reporting a murder Suddenly,Colton begins to show interest for her, but she doesn t believe that happily ever after exists in real life just in books Or maybe it was the fact that I spent every day caught up in the fictional worlds of the authors I editged, experienced their love, their heartbreak and everything in between that I hadnt , in the last four years, experienced anything in the real world or taken any time for myself AbbyShe enjoys reading books and likes to eat chocolates and drink coffe But he didnt get it He didnt understand that there was a part of me, no matter how much attention or attraction he tossed in my direction or what he said, that couldnt truly believe he really wanted all of this with me AbbyThey spend time with each other, and she suddenly starts to fall for him There was a good chance that in such a short period of time, I d fallen for Colton and I I might have already lost him AbbyThe passion builds around them as they try to know each other There was nothing soft or gentle about the way he kissed me It was fierce and passionate, a kiss of pent up desire exploding the moment our mouths fused together, a kiss of need Abby I ve dreamed of him of someone like him for a long time.I m in love with him I dont know if he feels the same way, but I knowI know how I feel Abby I leaned down and kissed him,.There was barely a space between our lips when I spoke I ve dreamed of you for so long Colton picked up my hand and brought it to his mouth, kissing my palm You dont have to dream any My lips curved into a smile.He was right I didnt have to dream any FANTASTIC So glad that I read it I really only have myself to blame for this I knew going into this that it had my biggest book hate in it but I d read all the others in the series, and thought seeing as it is a novella maybe it wouldn t annoy me as much Yeah, no It was hella annoying.Reasons my kindle almost got

hate ever For so many reasons hide spoiler 2 view spoiler Abby dated her husband all through high school, he was her best friend and she loved him, but she never really felt intense passion for him The whole time she dated him in high school, she had a fucking crush on the hero She even used to fantasise about him I m sorry but if you love someone you don t have crushes on other people You certainly don t fantasise about them That s emotional cheating to me Sure you can acknowledge that someone is attractive but to me there is something wrong with your relationship if you have an actual crush on someone else There is a huge difference between knowing someone looks good and fantasising about being with them I ve been with my husband six years and I ve never even remotely thought about anyone else Okay, maybe Jason Statham but my husband stars in those thoughts too so it s okay The fact that her husband dies and she ends up with the lad she was crushing on while with her husband is super, super gross to me hide spoiler 3 view spoiler Abby s job is an editor, and for some reason the author decided to include the names of all her real life friends who are authors into the book to talk about how amazing they are It was freaking annoying hide spoiler 4 The suspense side of the story was so out of place.5 view spoiler The whole I just seen the lad I ve been sort of seeing talking

ArmentroutBook 4.5 of the Wait for You seriesPublisher Evil Eye Concepts, IncorporatedPublication Date June 23, 2015Rating 4 starsSource eARC sent for review Warning this is an adult book, and for the eyes of mature readers Official Summary 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.What I Liked I haven t read a book from this series in quite some time Well, in all honesty, all I ve missed is Reece and Roxy s books, Fall With Me I m not big on New Adult contemporary romance it starts to sound the same, over and over, and Armentrout is yet another author that falls in this trap at least, in my opinion This particular work by her is ADULT fiction not New Adult The protagonists are in their late twenties, I believe The romance and chemistry is definitely adult rated, not New Adult Maybe that s why I liked this onethan I expected I love adult romance Abby isn t expecting her date to end in her witnessing a murder She was on a date with a guy she didn t even like, and she left in a rush but then heard something and saw three men surrounding one man, and one of the three man shoot the lone man When Abby is taken to the police station for a statement, she discovers that one of the detectives is Colton Anders, an old high school crush Colton is evensinfully handsome and wickedly sexy than he was years ago, but his job is to protect her from further threats But the real threat lies between them are either of them ready for a new relationship, with so much at stake Abby is an interesting protagonist She is different from most of Armentrout s other characters She is very insecure about her appearance and her body, and knows that she isn t of average proportions or beauty whatever that means Basically, she s insecure Her husband and high school sweetheart died four years ago and in a way, she is still grieving She still loves him Meeting Colton sparks a fire in her that she has not ever felt Abby s insecurities and self doubts are common among many women, and it was gratifying to see that type of weakness in fiction.Colton is your typical alpha male gorgeous, sexy, wicked He s also sweet and kind, and dotes on Abby in a yummy way He brings her desserts for breakfast Yes But he s very one dimensional in my opinion Still, I liked the idea of him I think he could have beenfleshed out Abby is really fleshed out Colton is not This could be due to the length of this novella The story is on and off, honestly, in terms of the murder and the aftermath Like, it doesn t seem to go anywhere at times, like it meanders And then pops back up, and then tapers off There doesn t seem to be a general climax in the book involving the murder Yet that is what brings Colton and Abby together It s like the murder was used to bring them together, and then it disappears So, meh The romance is pretty hot, though I think it has a touch of insta lust and insta love Abby and Colton say I love you very quickly I don t doubt love, but hmmm Still, the chemistry is sizzling and the interactions between Abby and Colton are sweet and hot I liked this novella, overall It was a bit too short and the non romance plot was lacking, but I still thought this book was okay.What I Did Not Like Like I said above, I found Colton to be one dimensional Don t get me wrong, I like the idea of him He sounds like a hot guy, with a sense of honor and chivalry, and a certain sexy charm about him But he seems too godlike and perfect and sweet Can we see some of the bad sides of males in romance novels, too Like, when they get angry, with the female protagonist Real couple fight, real couples argue, real couples get angry with each other I m not saying anyone has to get hurt physically or something, but real relationships are this perfect.The non romance plot was a bit lacking, in my opinion This sounds weird because there is plenty involving the murder and the aftermath and the retaliation But mostly, I was feeling pretty meh about the story outside of he romance.Insta lova runs rampant in this novella It s simply too short for me to both 1 get a good feel of Colton and his personality he s too flat a character at the moment, and 2 really dig into the romance and the relationship between Abby and Colton They reconnect for a few weeks and BAM They love each other I guess it s possible but ehhWould I Recommend It I suppose so It s JLA, and most people who like one or two of her books like them all This one isn t her best, but the romance is pretty hot and the book is short and enjoyable It s an ADULT novel Not New Adult or Young Adult Just a warning.Rating 3.5 stars I haven t decided if I want to round up or round down Either way, this one wasn t JLA s best by far, but it wasn t her worst It was a decent novella, and I liked the 1001 Nights theme going on Makes me want to try the other 1001 Dark Nights novellas 4.5 5 Stars I was the kind of woman who got the guy in the books But not in real life Never in real life Dream of you was a playful book that I devoured way too quickly It had elements of intensity, sexiness and reality laced throughout the pages, which made for such an enjoyable read Abby and Colton were people that I easily became attached to and cared for deeply They were a wonderful addition to the Wait For You Series And while I may be wrong, thi 4.5 5 Stars I was the kind of woman who got the guy in the books But not in real life Never in real life Dream of you was a playful book that I devoured way too quickly It had elements of intensity, sexiness and reality laced throughout the pages, which made for such an enjoyable read Abby and Colton were people that I easily became attached to and cared for deeply They were a wonderful addition to the Wait For You Series And while I may be wrong, this book felt as though it was the sexiest in the series And that s saying a lot, since it was only a little over 100 pages long Or maybe it was because there was so much crammed into such a short story But looking back over Dream of You, I love how the banter and sex scenes were written They were scorching hot from the beginning until the end Oh goodness, I had only ever read about men staring at women in a way that it felt like a physical touch before I hadn t really believed it possible It was Abby is a character that you must meet She was a breath of fresh air and so many people will be able to find little pieces of themselves in her That s because not only does she fan girl about books authors that we ve heard of, which was amazing, but she was self conscious about her body She definitely didn t have the best self esteem in the world, and I have rarely seen that portrayed in books that I ve read It was interesting listening to Abby s inner ramblings and negative comments about herself, because those are the things that so many of us do At times, she knew that she shouldn t be thinking those thoughts, but she couldn t stop them either But that s not Abby s only issue Four years ago her husband passed away, and in the meantime she has consumed her life with work which is editing books Fun But since her husband passed away, Abby hadn t been interested in a guy, let alone thought about wanting to get naked with one So when Colton stepped into her world, her insecurities flared to life Our gazes locked, and in an instant, a horrifying connection was formed He saw me I saw him I saw him shoot someone in the face And this man, this killer, knew that The way that Abby and Colton met was definitely not desirable She was a witness to a homicide, and Colton was one of the detectives at the police station that was to interview her The moment that he stepped into the room, I fell all over him Because Colton is another male, in a long line of guys that Jennifer Armentrout has created, that I am in love with He was protective, sexy, sweet, caring and did I say sexy I loved his brother Reece, in Fall With Me, and Colton was every bit as desirable There has to be something in their blood, because any words that would spill out of Colton s mouth made me want to throw myself at him Want to see proof Nicknames or terms of endearment can easily rub me the wrong way, I know, I know, I can be way too picky And I never thought that I would be a fan of honey, but when it came sailing out of Colton s mouth, it was perfection Closing my eyes, I exhaled softly You want to see me, but I m not sure you really want to I don t look like I know what you look like, he said, his voice low as his gaze met and held mine I have two eyes and I ve been checking you out often Enough that it would probably make you uncomfortable if you knew I fucking adore what I see He drew my hand to his groin, folding my palm over the rigid length I want what I see So even though this book flies by way too fast, it is a definite must read for fans of the Wait For You series The sparks between Abby and Colton, even during a basic conversation, were hot, hot, hot I loved it Oh, and I can t forget Abby s dirty thoughts The things that would pop into her head, my gosh, she had me giggling and covering my mouth while shaking my head no way I loved her So please do yourself a favor and pick up this book So much fun and sexiness is packed into such a quick story, and I loved every minute of it Forof my reviews, please visit Dream of You is an e novella It is 4.5 in the Wait for You series I would suggest definitely reading it after

favorite thing about Dream Of You was Abby I related to Abby in so many ways and I loved that she was realistic First off, her love of books will be relatable for any avid reader and this book has one of the best bookish quotes ever I have re read this quote so many times it s not even funny I want to have it monogrammed on everything But other than that, I just liked her She has self confidence issues, but she tries so hard to fight them but she doesn t always win and I so so got this I really like how this was presented because it is so common Every woman feels like this at one point and I really liked the way this was handled.Of course Colton was incredibly swoony and he was such a great guy He is an adult and he knows what he wants and he isn t looking to mess around He really is a good man and he was perfect for Abby I love how he liked her for who she was He liked her and her quirks and she didn t have to pretend with him It was really sweet and their chemistry was intense.I also liked the suspense angle and thought it fit in nicely considering Colton s career I really like the way JLA subtly weaved in the suspense element and how it affected the characters The way they were reunited may have sucked, but something good came out of it and I think they both deserved something good.Dream Of You was a good read and fans of this series will want to check it out There were some cameos from our favorite characters, which is always fun and this was another good addition I am really glad we got Colton s story Original review from my blog Julalicious Book Paradise rating

lately I could relate to her on so many levels that it scared me and made me love her even.Colton Anders is obviously too good to be true He s good looking and obviously, he s a perfect gentleman I know in books, they always seem so far away from reality, but my thought lately I think that if authors write about guys like this, they must exist somewhere hahaha Okay, maybe not as they are described, but it just gives me hope that a good guy could come into my life and make me feel like Colton makes Abby feel.Overall, this story is really adorable It s touching and I laughed beeach time she mentioned an author or a book The bookworm in JLA is at its highest in this book.Of course, the event that brings these two together might seem less realistic, but when you think of it We never know when love will give us a second chance Sweet, sexy, and romantic, this Wait for You novella simply enchanted me from the start Colton steamed from the pages of the previous book, I couldn t wait

find that in the romance genre today You have to learn to love yourself, flaws and all, and in doing so, you can shut that ugly voice up in your head for good The sizzling, gorgeous Colton Anders forces sweet Abby to take a deeper look and see what he sees, a beautiful person, a caring person, a person he will do anything for Even though it was insta love, a bit too fast, but hey, life is short and these two experience some crazy intense circumstances and tragedies in their lives, I really did enjoy this novella It definitely left me with a huge smile and yet another couple I can t
