What a sweet, nerve wracking, adorable love story. It was nothing like what normally read but I couldn’t put it down. I felt so bad for Matt and Michelle, you could feel their frustration with the situation in every scene. Great job to the author because I could not put it down. Those sexy scenes were steamy hot. Ooh la la!
Cheli is just trying to live her life, when she meets the perfect guy, Matt. The catch? She meets him in a dream.
Struggling to balance her real life with her dream reality, Cheli and Matt continue to meet in her dreams and she finds herself falling in love with him.
How can a relationship feel so real when the very foundation it’s based on is not? How can Cheli cope when the man she loves doesn’t really exist? Or does he?
I read the first two chapters on Amazon's sample and HAD to download the book. I started with chapter three and read until the wee hours -- just couldn't put it down!
Michelle (Cheli) and Matthew (Matt) have recurring dreams where they meet in exotic and historic places. The paranormal part is that two different people who have never met (and may not even exist) can meet, fall in love and have romantic sex, in their dreams. They can not remember their wakeful lives while dreaming, and when awake can only remember the face of their lover. Michelle tells her best friend, Vanessa, about the dreams and Vanessa thinks she may be hallucinating. Michelle tries to find Matthew's face on dating sites to no avail. Matthew also tries to find Michelle. In one of their dreams, they profess undying love for each other, until in one dream, Matthew tells her that they can't do this anymore, it is affecting their lives when awake -- but he can't remember why.
Vanessa's cousin is getting married in Hawaii and she invites Michelle to go with her as he "plus one". At the wedding rehearsal dinner, Michelle sees the groom across the banquet hall and is devastated to see her dream lover Matthew. She immediately leaves, she can't bear to see her dream lover marry someone else.
Not to give away any spoilers, but there really is a very HEA!!!
Matt and Michelle have a love so strong, they come into each other’s dreams. Love, love, love this book!
This is a story of Cheli who falls in love with the perfect man Matt! The trouble if that they meet in a dream! She’s trying to understand what’s happening and isn’t sure that she knows. But them things are different and pull you into a different situation. This was a different storyline but was interesting and intriguing. The characters were great and pulled you into the story! I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
Cheli and Vanessa's relationship as best friends was exactly as it should be. And when Cheli starts having these dreams she spills the beans to Vanessa. Cheli and Matt's relationships in their dreams and real lives were very different, wonderful, complex. This book made me mad, sad, excited, and hopeful. I couldn't put this book down! It even makes you wonder WHAT IF? Way to go Sian! I loved it!
This book was given to me as an ARC for an honest review. Five huge stars from me.
Dreams by Sian Cienwen is a bit of a oaranormsl, fated romance that gave me little butterflies in my stomach. Sweet, fun and with just enough heat, Cheli and Matthew stole my heart as they discovered that heads cone true.
