Night Visions will be either a love it or hate it kind of book for most readers. It is going to be one where it is hard to fall in between those two fences.
***contains minor spoilers***
Sam is a paranormal bestselling famous writer, who lives with her guardian dog in a house by the lake and runs every morning thru the forest. One morning, after waking up from her horrible nightmares and her head is full of voices, she sees some glowing eyes in her morning run and she wonders if she’s crazy.
Suddenly, Sam’s friend Ian appears after six years of knowing nothing about him and he wants to take her to someplace without telling her why or anything. Sam and Ian go on a road trip, stop at a deserted hideous motel in the middle of nowhere to rest and swim before the storm.
They arrive at the destination, secrets are reveled. Sam gets pissed off at what she learns. They leave the place to go to an isolated, secret cabin where she’ll be safe … or not. Strange things happen, more secrets are discovered, things and people she thought she knew are not what it seems.
Sam reaches her full potential, saves the day, gets her lover back and leaves us readers with more questions than answers that hopefully will be answered in the next book.
Night Visions has different types of shifters, goddesses, ghosts, crazy doctors who like to experiment on innocent people, mystery and suspense moments, love and hate declarations, a sexy half naked man and many more things that you’ll discover while reading this book!

Elena Gray is my new favorite author...Night Visions "Sensational".
The love between Sam and Ian is deep and unfathomable, true soul mates.The emotional scenes you portrayed was exceptional. I could identify with Sam's plight, her uncertainties,fears and convictions. Suspense at every turn, you can only hope that true love will prevail. Night Visions in my opinion is "Phenomenal". Elena thank you for taking me and my fellow readers on this incredible journey. Your writing is Brilliant you have a fan for life.. Do not hesitate to one click, five stars guaranteed.

While this story is good, I had a hard time getting into it. I found the beginning rather slow and honestly dreaded picking it up again. I found no real errors, only seriously like one to two spelling errors and I think four instances where if the sentence would have began with a noun instead of starting with verb, it would have sounded better. However the four instances this occurred in, I had to read the sentence three times to understand it.
Around chapter six is when the story started to get interesting enough to hold my attention. Pretty much from there on out it held my attention enough to finish the entire book in less than a day. The story will touch on an array of different emotions and is every fast paced.
The characters are very well thought out and it's easy to slip into each character that controls whatever scene the reader is reading. There were a couple of small loopholes that while I eagerly awaited them to be filled, sadly they were not. Hopefully they will be dealt with in the sequel.
I give this book 3 of 5 paws.

Samantha not realizing what was happening to her was haunted by nightmares. It wasn't until someone from her past came back into her life that she realized her destiny.
The book was filled with secrets to good to spoil for you. I enjoyed the book and I want more. I am glad that the author already has a second book planned. This book was received for the purpose of an honest review.

Ok, first off the book cover alone is awesome, and perfect for the story. When you first start reading Night Visions, you have no idea where this is going to go. It has so much mystery surrounding it and it keeps you reading. As little bits and pieces are given about the characters, their background, and reason for their actions, you begin a love hate relationship with them. I went back and forth constantly with feelings about them. I love that in a story, plus the unpredictability to it. You are not overwhelmed with too many characters in the story, but as it advances you are introduced to additional characters that will play an important role with story development. The main focus of Night Visions is the relationship rebuilding of Sam and Ian which is all over the place. To be together, not be together, will it work out, do I want to be with him again, can I trust him, the list goes on. I liked that you never knew whether they would be together or not in the end. This is not just a love/romance story by any means. There is much mystery, action, and suspense to it that the romance is just an added bonus :) I am anxiously awaiting the next book. I hope you enjoy!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Night Visions is the first in a new series, Night series, and this looks to be a series to keep an eye on as they come.
Ms. Gray writes a contemporary world in which Samantha has nightmares and visions that destroy her sleep and voices in her head that give her pounding headaches. The visions are starting to have messages for her if she can just understand who they are warning her about.
Ian is Sam's one true love who left her broken hearted 6 years ago when he left without so much as a goodbye. With his return Sam is swept into wild situations she is having a hard time understanding or believing. Can Ian save Sam or is it Ian she needs to beware of.
I really enjoyed the reunion of past loves and Sam's secrets finally being revealed. I wish we had a bit more background and history for Sam and for Ian it almost felt like a second book and I had somehow missed the information about families and past relationships. The steam level was moderate and the paranormal elements are mixed in and revealed through the story.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Night Visions by Elena Gray is a really good paranormal romance story. It's about a woman named Samantha (Sam), who hears voices in her head and has bad dreams on a nightly basis. She thinks that maybe she is going crazy, but then realizes that her visions and dreams are premonitions.
This book definitely has a spooky vibe to it – especially the first half when you didn't really know what was going on. Probably not the best book for me to read late at night, while the wind was howling through the windows. Sam kept feeling like she was being watched, and I would have to go close my blinds. My mind tends to go into overdrive sometimes.
Things get interesting when Ian comes back into Sam's life. He was her best friend and the boy she fell in love with. He had suddenly left town, and Sam didn't hear anything from him for six long years. Naturally, Sam is furious with him. He tells her that it's important that she comes with him, but he won't tell her why – just that it has something to do with her brother.
While on their journey, there is a lot of sexual tension between Ian and Sam. She feels betrayed by him, but can't help herself from falling for him all over again. Ian is a great guy, and did what he did in order to protect Sam. Ian and Sam are two strong and interesting characters. Ian is keeping many secrets, which come out slowly throughout the book. Sam learns that everyone in her life has kept secrets from her, so you can't help but sympathize with her.
This book has a lot of action, mystery and suspense to go along with the romance. It has a lot going on that will keep you turning the pages. It sounds like this is the beginning of a series. In the afterword, the author mentions that the next book with feature Eve and Trent – 2 people that are supporting characters in this book.

I am a huge sucker for a good paranormal romance and Elena Gray did not disappoint with Night Visions. From the beautiful cover to the last page I was pulled in, anxiously turning every page. The story introduces us to Sam Cade, a bestselling author, who lives a quiet life with her dog, Ginger. As the story progresses we learn that Sam’s life is not as quiet as it appears. She is haunted by visions and whispers in her head and feels that she is missing a big secret part of her life. Will her best friend, Ian, who left her six years earlier be the key to unlocking these secrets? Or will the voices telling her not to trust him possibly be referring to the sexy hunk of a man she has known her whole life. The story of Sam and Ian picks up pace and becomes more suspenseful with every passing page. But Elena Gray does not stick to the suspense and mystery. She shows the reader a glimpse of true love and romance that will cause goose bumps. I loved the story being told from the point of view of both Sam and Ian and felt that added to the beautiful descriptiveness that made me feel like I was standing in the middle of the action. I look forward to reading the next story in this series and seeing what Ms. Gray has in store for us.
