About DREAM OF YOU:
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.
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.”
So, if you’re like me and steamy romance is basically your life, then this novella is for you. Especially if you are as in love with JLA’s Wait For You series as I am. The story of Abby and Colton hit super close to home for me; not that I am a 28 (27?) year old woman obsessed with cupcakes and resolved into believing she’ll never have a thigh gap. No. I am actually a 20-year-old woman obsessed with cupcakes and resolved into believing I’ll never have a thigh gap, thank you. But more than that, I related so so much to Abby’s insecurities. These types of insecurities, I feel, are something almost every woman goes through but doesn’t like to talk about because then it’s just a bunch of girls bitching about their faults and not how great they are. True, women are super freaking awesome. But we are not perfect. And it is completely okay to have these types of insecurities, so long as they don’t stop you from living your life. And I think the character of Abby embodies that idea amazingly well. I related to her personality and her situation on a spiritual level. Right down to the date anxiety because I recently went on a date and almost had a panic attack I was so freaked out. And at the same time I was reading this novella. How perfect, right?! It really was though. This novella came into my life at just the right moment. And, like Abby, I didn’t let my insecurities stop me from living my life. (The date went great, in case anyone was wondering.) Now, I should probably mention something about Colton, right? Ha, that beautiful man. He’s related to Reece, what more do you want?! No, but really. Colton is so steamy and hot, yet emotional and real. He very much goes after what he wants because he damn well can, and I love that about him. He doesn’t let anything get in the way of what he wants or needs to do. You definitely want that kind of loyalty at your side. And together, him and Abby even each other out beautifully. If you’re a fan of JLA’s Wait For You series, then it goes without saying that you NEED to read this novella. And if you’re just a fan of JLA, then you should also read this novella. Hell, if you’re just a fan of eating cupcakes all the time and living with your sexy, plump thighs, then you need to read this novella!!! ‘Nuff said, right?
