Escape from a Nightmareby Stephanie Acon
Gabriana is a dreamer in more than one way. She has daydreams of living the good life on her terms, and without compromise. But then, there are the "other" dreams.
Have you ever experienced a premonition that you just couldn't shake? A foreboding dream or sign that you deeply wanted to ignore but...your spirit just wouldn't release it? Well meet Gabriana Hilson...
Gabriana is a dreamer in more than one way. She has daydreams of living the good life on her terms, and without compromise. But then, there are the "other" dreams. The very strange and disturbing omens that come while sleeping. They whisper the conflict of ev¬erything, and arrange messages that Gabriana doesn't want to hear...or see. Especially the ones about her boyfriend. That's a problem.
To Gabriana, Scholar is the king of kings. She is willing to sacrifice it all for him, including fam¬ily, friends, God, and her sanity. She believes that Scholar is a beautiful dream come-true... but is he really? After signing a record deal as a rapper, Scholar brings Gabriana along for the roller coaster ride of her life. He knows how much she loves him so when the drama begins, he uses his manipulative tactics to hold her in place. He is the ruler of their world, and every¬thing is running the way he has always planned un¬til things go horribly wrong. Suddenly, a well-planned dream quickly turns into the nightmare of all nightmares. Both Scholar and Gabriana learn the hard way to expect the unexpected - for he comes out of the blue. Or does he? He is extremely calculating...and his name is Khali Simone. After meeting him... Gabriana has no idea of the door she opens

Not sure what the other rating is about but this was one of the best books I've ever read. It was inspiring but mostly raw and real to the point of questioning if it was in fact fictional. I have passed this book along to girls in my mentoring group and they too shared the same experience. A very good, and raw read, but also very hard to put down. A ride indeed.
Gabriana Hilson is an elementary school music teacher. When she meets Scholar, for her, it's love at first sight. Gabriana and Scholar are like night and day. He's mysterious and very selfish to her needs, wants and desires. Gabriana loves Scholar so much that she's sacrificed her family and friends to be with him knowing she will never number one in his life. I found Stephanie Acon’s "Escape from a Nightmare" to be very confusing. At times I found myself rereading a paragraph more than once in order to get a better understanding. This would probably be a better read for a different type of reader. Reviewed by: Carmen
