This is a story of adventure, danger and romance done in an extraordinarily unique way. It’s a compelling, character-driven story that had me turning the pages fast – the kind that will keep you up later than at night than you’d planned! Heroine Christine is a lot like many of us are at the brink of adulthood. She’s a quiet, do-right girl in the shadow of her best friends and often standing on the sideline - yet on the cusp of discovering of the depth of her courage and her purpose in life. Christine’s ordinary life turns upside down when she meets her new coworker at the library: the mysterious, hot, troubled and magnetic Gabriel. With him, she finds a connection beyond anything she’s ever felt or experienced. It is this overwhelming connection that compels Christine to unknowingly follow Gabriel into a dangerous, bizarre dream world that’s as real as real can feel. S.J. Lomas’ beautiful writing makes each visit as visual and action-packed as a film. There, Christine discovers that it’s up to her to save the man with whom she’s irreversibly connected. Christine is faced with decisions that will affect Gabriel and the rest of her life. A love triangle between Christine and another man she meets in and outside of the dream world complicates this story told through the distinct voices of Christine and Gabriel. As an author myself, I know this alternating of narrators is a difficult task but Lomas nails it like a master. Looking forward to more from S.J. Lomas!

Fast paced, YA romance with enough twists to keep it interesting. Very well written book. I would highly recommend for a summer read on the beach, or on a road trip. I hope to see more from this author.

They just met but she is all he hoped for, kind considerate, and someone to care about him. But contact with her has placed her in danger. Can he protect her, can she find protection with someone else, can she bring him the peace he dreams of... Looking at the connections that people make, with a little science fiction, and dream scape reality... this is a quick reading story about the sacrifices of love and laugh

This book was so exciting I didn't want it to end! Christine was a great heroine who was attracted to Gabriel right off the bat but didn't succumb to insta-love. There was a connection but she didn't spend all her time obsessing about him. She had more important things to worry about, at first, like figuring out how to stay in Michigan after her dad got a job in Texas. Then she started getting sucked into dreams with Gabriel and that's when it got really cool. Some of the dream scenes actually gave me goosebumps. A unique premise and cool characters make me want to read the sequel. You won't see your dreams the same way again.

DREAM GIRL was terrific and disappointing at the same time for me. The author has managed to write an engaging work, but like so many e-books, it is merely the beginning of a story. Picture the portion of THE STAND in which we're introduced to Stew and the others at the gas station, the car takes out the pumps, then the army comes in and takes them off and this is where the story would end. Like this, it is merely the preface to a story, getting us ready for what is to come. The characters are well written and introduced in ways that pulls the reader into the story without him knowing it. My problem being I started to read and was at the end wondering how you got there so quickly. I would have liked to seen more information about the agency as well as Bret and the two thugs with him. How they came into being at the agency? What made them choose to leave? What is this dream world? How does it work? Just who is Leo? How does the dream world work? Can things be controlled?? What makes people be able to get into the dream world? How does the training work?

Fresh new niche in the genre! This book had an interesting perspective; I can't wait to read the next book. However, at times it felt a little rushed and was slightly hard to follow. S.J. Lomas has tons of potential

I really like the idea of this story, but it felt disjointed to me. I liked the main characters, but not some of their actions. I don't like when characters are wishy washy; acting one way one moment then a quick moment later acting or feeling a different way. This book felt more like a prequel; there wasn't a lot of information. It felt rushed. I'm going to be optimistic, and read further in this series, because I really like the plot. I just hope the character development becomes stronger.
