Megan Bradford was trapped in a boring nightmare. She'd had this particular nightmare so often it had lost its ability to terrify her. Or so she told herself.
Sadly, that did nothing to change the situation. She was the engineer of a runaway train. It was the dead of night, and she (plus all twenty-seven passenger cars filled with people) was about to go over a cliff. None of the controls that she touched, kicked, pushed, or hauled on changed a thing. The train was going over that cliff, and she was powerless to stop it.
It's a dream, she told herself.
Despite her words, her heart was pounding and her hands were slick. The heat in the little engine room was suffocating, and sweat was dripping into her eyes, making them burn. She jammed her hands down on the controls, pounding on the big red stop button for all she was worth. It didn't help. Truthfully, she doubted that trains even had a big red stop button, but that didn't matter.
Seconds away from the cliff. She blistered the air with curse words, but it made no difference. It was going to be a slow-motion dive into the abyss while the air filled with screams.
And then the dream changed. Suddenly someone stood beside her. A man in a mask and a cape.
She had the vague impression of a chiseled jaw and massive height. Wow, this man was tall.
"Help me!" she screamed.
He said something. She didn't know what. She couldn't hear over the roar of the engine. Then he abruptly grimaced and grabbed her hands.
She had enough time to notice that his fingers were long and his palms really broad. He easily engulfed her much smaller hand. Something was familiar about that. It dinged in her mind completely outside of the nightmare, but there was no time to think about it.
He grabbed her hands and half pushed, half threw her sideways to a different control. A joystick. A huge stick that thrust up from the floor.
"Turn!" he bellowed. Then he enveloped her in his massive arms and together they hauled sideways on the stick. Not stopping, just turning away from the cliff.
The wheels squealed, the controls seemed to buck before her eyes, but this man was strong — Hercules strong — and she felt the shudder that went through the whole train at his efforts. Their efforts, she realized. She had to be part of this, too, or otherwise it wouldn't work.
This isn't going to work anyway, she told herself. This was a nightmare and it always ended the same way. But that little voice was far away. Her body was living the straining heat of pulling the joystick sideways. With a jolt, she discovered she was also aware of the erotic press of the man's body. And she even felt the hot huff of his breath against her neck and his low grunt of effort.
"Not enough," she cried. "We're not enough."
"We are!" he growled. And it was a growl, pulled up through his entire body. She knew because the rumbling sound seemed to start from his taut thighs where they pressed hard against her bottom. Then she felt the sound roll through his flat belly and even grind in the air beside her ear. "We can do it!"
Just hearing his words made a difference. He was big, he was powerful, and he believed. Which made her believe. So she put everything she had into pulling with him.
But they were out of time. Megan watched in horror as the end of the track appeared, drew closer, closer, and then ... they were off the edge in free fall. The train began to plummet into the abyss. In the background, she heard people scream, shrill and piercing. Or maybe that was just her.
Until the train abruptly veered. She didn't think it was possible. Right there in midair, the train suddenly took a right turn.
It wasn't possible, but she wasn't arguing. This was a dream, after all, and possible or not, she was taking hold of the miracle with both hands. Behind her the entire train followed her lead. A shift to the left and suddenly, the whole massive thing was headed somewhere else. Somewhere with bright lights and happy sounds.
She took a moment to look at where they were going. Then she double blinked. Yup, still there. "An amusement park?" she asked, her mouth gaping open. And then horror abruptly rushed through her. No longer an abyss — now they were going to take out an entire fairground.
She frantically hauled on the joystick again, trying to steer elsewhere. "We're going to crash!"
His hands covered hers again, gentle and soothing as he pulled her off the stick. "We're not crashing," he said. And they weren't. The train was slowing, slowing, slow ... stopped. Right at the front gates of a fifties-style fairground.
She stared, but no matter how long she looked, she still saw roller-coaster rides, a trio of juggling clowns, a zillion booths filled with games and junk food. And of course, off in the distance, the Ferris wheel with all its pretty dancing lights. "Oh my fracking God ..." she breathed.
"You don't like amusement parks?" the man asked. His voice was still low — a gravelly rumble beside her ear that made her shiver, this time in awareness, not fear.
"No. I-I love them. My family used to go to one every year. It was the best part of the summer." She glanced in her rearview mirror. And yes, some part of her knew that a train didn't have a rearview mirror, but she wasn't at the bottom of an abyss so she was going with it. There, she saw zillions of passengers pouring out of the cars. Kids, moms and dads, all of them jumping and laughing as they ran for the park.
She smiled as she watched it. "Everybody's happy."
"Really?" he asked. "Everybody?"
She blinked, suddenly hyper-aware of him standing behind her. It didn't seem possible, but he felt scorching against her skin. In an amazing kind of way. Her skin tingled, her nipples tightened, and her breath caught in sizzling awareness.
He felt it, too, she knew. She heard him drag in a ragged breath while lower down, his thighs tightened as he pressed his erection into her bottom.
Nice, she thought. Really nice, because it had been a while since someone was this happy to see her. He started to pull away, but she grabbed his arms — still locked on the joystick — to keep him close. Again she had that tickle of a memory in her thoughts. His forearms were big, the muscles granite hard.
They stood there, poised with him behind her, his body slowly easing forward. Her nightmare was shifting onto a very different track and she was all kinds of happy about that.
She felt his lips, soft and tentative at her neck. She moaned, letting her head drop to the side and her body melt backward into him. His forearms trembled and though her eyes were closed, she knew he was slowly releasing his grip on the joystick.
Would he touch her? Where? Her nipples were hard and her breasts heavy. Please touch me, she thought. Please.
He didn't. His hands hovered in the air just in front of her. "Megan," he said, the sound both a groan and a regret.
"You know me?" she asked breathlessly. Then she nearly rolled her eyes. Of course he knew her — he was a figment of her imagination. But that didn't stop her from turning around. It was a tight circle there inside his arms, and he was practically dancing to keep from touching her as she turned.
"I want to see your face."
She wasn't going to give him a choice, but just as she turned, he whipped his cape up and around them. The world went completely dark.
"That's some cape," she said, a little miffed that she was now blind.
She heard him chuckle and the darkness took on a warm, familiar feeling.
"Why can't I see you?" she asked. "I want to thank you properly."
Clichéd words, but what she said didn't matter. She could still sense him in the total darkness. She reached out, connecting with his broad chest. Muscles in a huge expanse. No chest hair. She touched the tight buds of his nipples.
His gasp cut through the darkness like the sound of a massive stone breaking. She was getting to him, she thought with a smile. So she let her hands roam, one slipping lower, down across his flat abs and narrow waist. But she didn't go where she really wanted. It was too bold, even in this dark place. So she leaned forward, pressing her lips to his chest.
She felt the beat of his heart, steady and hard against her mouth. "Thank you," she whispered. "Thank you for saving me."
Finally his hands touched her. Just his fingertips as he gently stroked up and down her back. She raised her face to his. It was still pitch black. She couldn't see anything at all, but she somehow knew he was bending to kiss her.
Damn, the man was huge, but they still found a way to meet. She stretched up as he bent down, and finally they kissed.
It was the softest of connections — lip to lip, on the very tips of her sensitized skin. He hesitated there and she wanted to curse in frustration, but that would have broken the spell.
"Please," she whispered.
That worked. He pressed deeper, harder against her, but still so slow.
Her lips were parted, as were his. They breathed the same air. Sweet. Hot.
"Won't you kiss me?" she asked. She hadn't even moved her mouth, but the question quivered in the darkness around them.
"Don't rush this," he answered. "I've wanted it forever."
She smiled. It wasn't true, of course. He was a masked man come to save her doomed train. But she loved the fantasy, loved the idea of a man who wanted her. One who'd waited for her and wasn't going to rush things even when she was already aching for something a lot more graphic.
"Now?" she asked.
His tongue swept inside. Strong, forceful, and so damned commanding. He took her with his tongue with such power that her knees went weak. Her hands gripped his broad shoulders even as his arms tightened around her, lifting her slightly off the ground. Soon he was her only anchor, and she thrilled at the feel of his hard planes and shifting cords of muscles.
His tongue seemed to own her, touching every part of her mouth in a dizzying frenzy. He tickled the roof of her mouth then abruptly nipped at the edges of her lips. This was possible in dreams, and she was extremely grateful for it. The sensations built as his hands shifted to her breasts. Such large hands as they pinched her nipples, creating lightning flashes that made her blood sizzle.
More. She so wanted more.
As if he'd heard her — and in this place, maybe he had — his hands slid to her hips, gripping her tight. Was he holding her in place? Angling her for a better position? He was sucking on her breasts now, making her body shiver and her blood pool in her belly. God, she wanted to be naked with him.
Suddenly, they were naked. All those fabric barriers just disappeared leaving nothing but smooth skin, flexing muscles, and him pressing hard and hot against her.
"Wow," she breathed. In this dreamscape, her libido clearly had superpowers. Which somehow gave her permission to be as bold as she wanted. She slid her hands lower, taking his cock in her hands. Broad, thick, and so hot.
He groaned at her touch, his hands spasming on her hips. "Megan," he said. Her name was more of a moan than a word. "Listen to me, Megan. We —"
Ding dong, bing bong. Ding dong, bing bong.
Megan woke with a jerk, a curse on her lips and an ache between her thighs. She gripped the sheets as if she could hold onto her dream by sheer physical strength. It wasn't possible, of course, and eventually she fell back onto her pillow with a groan.
The dream was gone. Her masked savior was gone. Just when it had really started to get good.
She lay in bed for a long moment, savoring the dream. It took her a while before she admitted to herself that the sexual frustration she felt was much better than the cold sweat she normally faced after her nightmare. Still, couldn't she have slept just a few moments longer? Long enough to feel his thrust —
Ding dong, bing bong. Ding dong, bing bong.
Megan cursed again as she fumbled with her phone. It took her three tries before she turned off the alarm — snooze function and all. Clearly the universe didn't want her enjoying her dream even in fantasy. It was time to start her day.
She looked at the clock, even though she already knew exactly what it read. She had thirty-four minutes before she needed to appear dressed and pressed in the hotel breakfast area. But her very first task was to text her boss.
Good morning, Mr. Monroe. Weather forecasts rain today. Temperature in the mid-fifties.
When did she become so perky, professional, and so very colorless? She rolled out of bed with a jaw-popping yawn. But even as she moved, she tapped the recorder app on her phone and spoke somewhat clearly as she shuffled to the bathroom.
"Miranda's Place B&B, personal notes. Bed, sheets, and duvet are excellent. Interesting headboard." She absently touched the intricately carved board. On first glance it looked like abstract bumps and swirls, but closer inspection made the flowing lines seem almost sexual. There was nothing explicit, just a vague impression that made her think it belonged in a honeymoon suite. Or a high-end brothel. Or maybe it was just the lingering remnants of her dream.
She headed for the bathroom, then winced as she caught sight of her reflection. Humidity equaled frizzy hair. Ugh.
"But humidity in St. Louis is annoying. Reminder to check for problems caused by dampness before Mr. Monroe buys this place," she recorded.
She set down her phone and made an effort to pull herself together. It was unusually hard after that dream, but she had a job to do. Her boss was thinking of buying the B&B, and she needed to be sharp. They only had one day to physically inspect the place before they headed on. There were, in fact, six other B&Bs on the possible acquisition list, but something about this little inn had her rooting for it. She liked it, liked Cherry Moon, the historic northern suburb of St. Louis, and she liked the eclectic air here. The place had character, and so she hoped Mr. Monroe would pick it.
But that wouldn't happen if she didn't get her brain and body in gear. So she picked up her phone, steeled her spine, and checked her e-mail. No emergencies from the hotels already in Mr. Monroe's growing chain of B&Bs. Or at least no new instructions had come from the CEO in the middle of the night. She had no idea when the man slept; she'd gotten e-mails from him at all hours.
Sadly, while her boss had slept, her mother had been wide awake. Megan had no fewer than seventeen e-mails from the woman. Most were dramatic Danger To Your Life!! health scare spam, plus a few funny cartoons and political diatribes. Megan deleted those without even looking at them. The problem came from the two remaining e-mails, long ones about Megan's middle brother's newest girlfriend (apparently a bitch of the first order) and the other about her mother's health.
Megan knew her mother was just longing for attention. The woman's chest pains, swollen ankles, and even the lump just above her knee were probably nothing, but it was hard to tell. Everything was written in the most dramatic tones, and Megan struggled not to scream as she scanned them. Nothing life threatening — she hoped — and so she closed her phone and headed for the shower.
Sadly, her mother's last lines haunted her despite her attempts to forget. I know you're focused on your career, honey, but the best years of my life were with my husband and children. don't rush to make a million dollars only to have no one to share it with.
Ugh! Like Megan needed the reminder that her biological clock was ticking? But there just wasn't time in her life for more than her job. Working as personal assistant to the CEO of a rapidly growing hotel chain was a 24/7 kind of job. Wyatt Monroe absorbed all her attention, all the time. And she liked it that way. So biological clock or not, Megan was 100% dedicated to Mr. Monroe.
Rushing through her morning routine, Megan pulled on her MBA-clone wardrobe. Dark gray business suit, crisp black pumps, and barely there makeup. Then she added her one concession to her wild side: a beaded necklace she'd made herself. She didn't have an MBA, of course. It had been a stretch to get her college degree. But she knew how to dress the part, and so she grabbed her leather padfolio, tucked two pens and a tiny credit card holder in her inside pocket, then headed out the door. Her heels made precise clicks on the wood floor.
She didn't descend the stairs but glanced down them, listening closely. She didn't hear Mr. Monroe's voice, so she was on time. She looked in the opposite direction to the room next to hers. She'd be waiting when he emerged: a handsome man dressed in some version of gray. Those were the constants. What changed were the words that would come spilling out of his mouth — she never knew from one second to the next what he would say or do. It didn't matter. It was her job to stand beside him with pen and pad in hand recording every piece of chatter, no matter how irrelevant.

I really enjoyed Dreams Nights With The CEO. Entangled has done it again with this new tale from author Kathy Lyons. From the very first page, I was drawn into the world of Wyatt Monroe and Megan Bradford. The story is rich with page-turning sexual tension and enough funny bits to have you wonder what's going to happen next. Megan is a strong heroine without the hardened kick-butt edge, which makes her all the more human. Readers will truly identify with her determination and strength, which is nicely balanced with her humanity. Wyatt is the classic hot alpha male with a fresh new twist. I loved the way our author got into the head of each of these characters and showed me how each of the grappled with their days and nights together. Watching their relationship grow and change had me rooting for them and their HEA! The complimentary elements of the paranormal, humor, and spice gave me a unique look into their world, and the intimate character points of view gave Dream Nights a novel look at an established story line. In a nutshell, it's a fast, steamy read that shows opposites do indeed attract! Check it out.
As always - the Brazen line from Entangled is fabulous. This was a first from this author for me and it was excellent! They are always hot, sexy and great quick reads! Keep it up Entangled!
Kathy Lyons (AKA Jade Lee) has written a very sexy, funny and erotic story. The love of Megan Bradford and Wyatt Monroe, her boss, is kept hidden from each other. Neither wants to spoil their working relationship. That is until they fall asleep and have the same erotic dreams. Superheroes and passion combine to scorch the pages. Add to this a paranormal presence and you have a very erotic novel with a touch of tenderness. If you enjoy a sassy and sexy romance with a HEA, you will love this book. I was lucky enough to receive a copy from this author. I'm so glad that I did. Her writing is fun and is filled with characters that you love.
I was pleased that Megan and Wyatt were not stereotyped but rather realistic likeable people. They worked together but truly liked each other as friends before letting their true feelings loose. Of course their steamy romance was most pleasing also! The quirky storyline was different and kept me wondering where it was going...I enjoyed that. It is a nice light romance with a twist and makes me wonder if we'll be seeing more of that B & B. ***Review copy provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this story. I got it as a Net Galley preview in return for an honest review, and I was thrilled that I did. This is a story about millionaire and Bed & Breakfast owner Wyatt Monroe and his assistant, Megan Bradford. They were thinking of buying a haunted B&B and were spending several nights there. During that time, they both had the same erotic dreams about each other but didn't know it. They were very attracted to each other but didn't want to jeopardize their business relationship. This story was very interesting and it showed how they worked through their problems. I would definitely recommend this book if you are a fan of the paranormal and erotica and Kathy Lyons fan.
What a fun book to read! Sexy dreams shared by Megan and her CEO boss Wyatt. Helped along by the ghost of the B&B they are looking into buying, their eyes are opened to the possibility of maybe more than the boss and employee relationship they have now. Steamy dreams and fun dialog between the two. Great read!!
Wyatt and Megan are able to resist their chemistry until they spend the night in a “haunted” B&B Wyatt is considering purchasing to add to his B&B chain. While there they begin sharing dreams. The dreams are shades of superhero fantasy and silly to the extreme. Megan’s love of horror movies and Wyatt’s love of comic books definitely color their sleeping activities. You can’t help but laugh as you begin to root for these characters to find their HEA. The dreams allow them to work out their issues as they never could wide awake. There isn’t anything to detract from Megan and Wyatt’s relationship in this book. There isn’t a mystery or outside force trying to push them apart. This is all Megan and Wyatt. While not all authors could manage such a focused storyline, Lyons is able to handle it masterfully. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Megan and Wyatt in their dream world. I only hope there will be more dreams to come.
The CEO & his Personal Assistant with a twist. Hotel chain CEO Wyatt Monroe has had a crush on his PA Megan Bradford since he met her. She has worked for him for three years when they take a work trip to a haunted B&B. They start sharing increasingly intimate dreams. Can they make those dreams a reality without ruining their working relationship? This is a terrific contemporary romance with a touch of the paranormal. Ghosts, shared dreams and action heroes can be super sexy. Who knew? The author took a played out trope and made it exciting and new. I look forward to seeing what comes next in this new series.
This book might not be for anyone as it is a quick read and yes tends to be unbelievable and there where gaps in the story line. I found it a good quick read. Wyatt and Megan are likable characters and have tons of romantic/sexual tension. They have a history as boss and employee but they trust and respect each other which i like.The dreams they share are not the normal dreams one has in romance novels which I enjoyed as the are unique and give the book something different. Once Wyatt and Megan find out they are sharing dreams things in the real world heat up. I laughed a couple time, there is great heat to the sex(read and dream), and like I said before it was a easy quick read. I liked this book... there was a couple issues I had with it but overall not bad. Plan on reading more from Kathy Lyons.
There is quite a bit of back and forth with dreaming not dreaming. Enjoyed the book but did NOT LOVE the book
Of all the books from this publisher, this was the only one that I had a hard time reading. I make it a point to read any book that I pay for but this one was a hard one to do that with. I stopped and started this book many times trying to get thru it. The story just did not grab me in like so many others. I wished I saved my time and money.
I enjoyed Megan and Wyatt's story. I was a little surprised in how they dreamed of each other but it worked for this story somehow.
Feel like a sizzling, fun romance? Dream Nights with the CEO: A Secret Desires Novel by Kathy Lyons will hit the spot. Megan had been plagued by nightmares, but one night in an eclectic, haunted B&B in St Louis, her dreams turned erotic. Her masked hero tantalized her with his strong, masculine presence and lit a fire, long extinguished in her libido. The problem was, there was no relief during her work hours. Her genius boss, caused her heart to beat faster, not only due to his brilliant mind either. The man was gorgeous, muscular, intelligent and swoon worthy. A man that dreams were made of right?She, however, was determined to reach her career goals, and therefore reign in her over active, Wyatt charged libido. Wyatt Monroe was conflicted. His personal assistant, the delightful and clever Megan Bradford, had completely beguiled him with her savvy business sense and weakened his resolve to never mix business with pleasure. He wouldn't risk losing her incredible mind, to satisfy his lust in her curvaceous body. He could see that without the vitality that was Megan in his colorless life, it held little meaning. Megan somehow elevated his self opinion from mere handsome geek, to strong, superhero caretaker. His childhood had been bereft of warmth. His nights were now filled with seduction; in his dreams. Would logic override need with this dynamic duo? Written in third person, past tense, the story was captivating. I didn't want it to end. I loved both Megan and Wyatt; their well drawn out fight against attraction, and their intelligent, witty repartee, and their journey towards lovers. Switching POV was wonderful, as it was a terrific way to see into each character's heads; dirty thoughts and all. :-) Each event was relevant, making the book an easy and compelling read. There were even a few terrific plot twists that kept the book from being predictable. I loved this author's poetic prose. The dreams! Phew! Hot hot hot. I thought it so clever how the dreams actually created a puzzle to solve about both Wyatt and Megan. Ingenious. Sensual. Explicit. Erotic. I truly enjoyed this book. It's the sort you recommend to all your friends. It was fun, it was hot, it was sweet. Thank you NetGalley for the opportunity to read and provide an honest review this book. No compensation was received for this review.
Kathy Lyons(Jade Lee) Dream Nights with the CEO This first in a new series by the alter ego of Jade Lee was a fun and steamy book to read. I can't wait to get the next book in the series. Boss Wyatt and employee Megan are sharing dreams, what is causing this and why is it happening. Can one of the B & B's Wyatt is looking to purchase be haunted? and is this the cause of the dreaming?
Rating: 4 1/2 stars Megan Bradford is having an interesting dream - what an interesting way to start the book. It certainly caught my attention. My dreams aren't as interesting as Megan's. Wyatt Monroe is her boss and he is having the same problem as Megan. As I'm reading the book we find out that Megan and Wyatt are staying at the Miranda's Place B & B. It's run by a young woman named Bethany. I found that Bethany has an interesting story of her own. I would love to know if Kathy will be writing her story. Megan and Wyatt have an intriguing connection that comes at an interesting time of day. Makes me wish that I had that type of connection with my partner. How about you? Kathy has given her readers dreaming with a twist. It also makes you wonder if we can control our dreams so that we get the outcome we want. This is a book that you will find that you just can't put it down until you reach the end. Kathy grabs your attention starting with the first dream. If you're a paranormal romance junkie you could pick up a copy of this book because there is some unexplained reason for the connection between Megan and Wyatt. I'm looking forward to seeing what Kathy has in store for her readers in the next Dream Nights series. With all the dream sequences that she wrote in this book, I'm all set with my dreams until her next book comes out.
I should have paid more attention to the name of the book. Too much if the plot that took place in dreams. The awake scenes were much better. Just not my thing.
Rating: 3.5 Stars. Megan Bradford has worked for CEO Wyatt Monroe for over three years. Wyatt purchased the Bed and Breakfast (B&B) Megan was working in as a housekeeper. He realized her tremendous potential and made her his personal assistant. Unbeknownst to the both of them, they have secretly lusted after each other from the moment they first met. From time to time, they travel together to evaluate potential new B&B properties. They work really well together; Wyatt is the logic guy and can reduce anything down to numbers and Megan is the free spirit, able to see the beauty, history and character of a space. During negotiations, they play good cop, bad cop, and usually get what they want. Megan and Wyatt discover a B&B with a lot of potential. The only drawback, the hotel is haunted. The locals have many tales to tell about the place. The present owner claims she has experienced enough ghostly activity for a lifetime and wants out as soon as possible. Megan is a true believer in paranormal activities and embraces the weird goings on, while Wyatt does not. In order to really feel and experience the essences of the B&B, Megan and Wyatt spend the night in the room considered to be the most haunted. One problem, only one king-sized bed. Wyatt takes the recliner and Megan takes the bed. Both experience the same, strange, erotic dream and wake up the next morning, in bed together, naked. Neither Megan nor Wyatt know how this occurred and they have no memory of anything happening after they fell asleep separately. After further discussion, they discover they have been sharing the same erotic dreams for the past few days, which has only fueled their never acted upon feelings for each other. Life continues on as Megan and Wyatt get to know each other on a personal level and experience their dreams in real life. A surprise brings them even closer together and happiness is in their reach. The paranormal activity is revealed and another lucky twosome will find love. Dream Nights with the CEO by Kathy Lyons is an interesting and engaging read. To begin with, I didn't realize the title, Dream Nights with the CEO, was a play on words. Erotic fantasy dreams splashed with superheros and ghosts is the foundation of the story. Although the premise is atypical, the book is well written, has well-defined characters and is enjoyable. Another plus, the dreams are hot and steamy. I liked this book. If you enjoy a steamy romance with a ghostly twist, this book is for you.
This is a laugh out loud book. Wyatt and Megan are great together and the dream sequences are what you expect from dreams. Quarky and weird. Will be looking forward to the next book in this series. Received this book free from the author for an honest review.
Dream Nights with the CEO is a sexy, witty mixture of romance and the paranormal. Kathy Lyons (AKA Jade Lee) does a wonderful job of combining humor, romance, and the paranormal to create an entertaining read. Her ability to blur the lines between reality and the dream world was thoroughly enjoyable. Megan Bradford, assistant to hotel chain CEO and sinfully, sexy Wyatt Monroe, shares a terrific working relationship with her boss, but also shares a secret, mutual attraction that neither one is willing to reveal. On a business trip to St. Louis to assess the acquisition of a new B&B, Megan and Wyatt share the same erotic wet dreams with the help of the local ghost. But neither Megan nor Wyatt is willing to reveal the scorching sexual attraction that is fast burning out of control. As their mutual dreams become steamier, the heat ignites threatening to explode and reveal their secrets. This book contains hot chemistry, palpable sexual tension, humor, paranormal elements, and sizzling romance. If you enjoy reading erotic romance cleverly combined with the paranormal and the added elements of humor, then this is a book you definitely want to read. I received a copy of this book from Entangled Publishing in exchange for my honest review. Janna Shay Author of Fair Play
Dream Nights with the CEO is Kathy Lyons latest new release~! Or will be since it’ll be released in a couple of hours ;) But anyways this story was a huge change from what I would usually read and I’ll say I was hooked on it. It was also my first read of Kathy Lyons’ book. Although I read her as Jade Lee :D The heroine, Megan, is an assistant – and sometime personal assistant- to her hot hunky billionaire boss, Wyatt Monroe, who owns and runs a hotel chain and Bed and Breakfast houses around the country. She goes on a business trip with him to St. Louis looking to buy and add more B&B to his business. But every waking moment spent with Wyatt is making it harder for Megan to keep her task a business one since she has been having hot and erotic wet dreams about her hunky boss. And she’s not afraid to do lots of naughty and delicious things with him, I mean come on, it’s only a dream, right? ;) Low and behold to Megan’s unbeknown fantasy, Wyatt is have the same exact dreams! And he loves it. Knowing that he can’t breach their boss/ assistant relationship and ruin a perfect partnership he can only dream of being with her and that will be enough to satisfy his needs- barely. Every time he dreams of his sexy assistant he can’t help but hide his feelings for her as the morning calls for business and working side by side with her is making it difficult to concentrate. But as the dreams progresses and the steamier it gets, their work relationship begins the change and feelings begins to develop outside of the dream realm. But this is a short business trip and he can’t lose his best assistant to a night of fling nor lose his chances with her as things begins to heat up. This was a fast and hot read and I enjoyed it rather more than I thought I would. I have never really read anything like this before so it was a great start to get me going. As many may already know, Ms. Kathy Lyons also writes under the Historical romance author name of Jade Lee which I love~ So reading her paranormal erotica New Adult romance was a great shift from what I was used to from her works. This was also a different kind of plot from what I know of and really was what caught my attention to this book. I mean, having erotic wet dreams of a certain person (or persons) is rather enticing and hot, but to have the same hot dream as that person, doing naughty things together is rather scary and…..habba habba… ;) Me likey There was one point in the story that I lost interest and didn’t really care for and saw it as a moot point in the story. I found it unnecessary and should have been structured in a different set up. I love you Kathy/Jade but that part was just ridiculous. I rolled my eyes (rolled it!) I didn’t see that coming, and I never rolled my eyes but I did :( I know it had everything to do with the hero and his love of comics but, no, it just didn’t work with me. And I love comics too. I also had a moment in the story where I had to google up something after I read it towards the end of the book. I had to literately stop reading and pull up google to search up the answer. I wasn’t sure if that “thing” was possible in such a short time frame but I guess it can happen from what I found, so I guess it turned out all okay. But other than those things everything was on point and fabulous! I loved both characters and they really compliments each other’s characteristics and wants and needs. They have great personalities and well you can’t help but just love them! I will be looking forward to more of this :) The ARC was provided by the fabulous Entangled Publishing.
