An unforgettable romance from K.M. Scott, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Heart of Stone series and Club X series!
If I dream, will you dare?
All I wanted was my freedom. It's all I'd dreamed of from the first time I stood in the ring. Until I entered Robert Erickson's world. Until Serena. Cruelty and ugliness surrounded me, but she was beautiful and good. I wanted to protect her from her father's world, even though I knew being with her could mean the end of me.
I wanted for nothing as the daughter of one of the richest men in the world. But all my father's money couldn't buy what I truly craved. Until Ryder. I wanted all he was, all he brought out in me. All he made me desire.
Our love was forbidden by the one person who had the power to harm us. We dreamed of more than living in that world, though. We dreamed of having it all, but did we dare?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Just came here to say that I absolutely loved this book... Serena and Ryder are victims of her father's greed and power-hungry life. Both are entrapped into lives that keep them dreaming of a better tomorrow together. I am anxious to see how the rest of this story plays out... does her father finally see the error of his ways? Does he finally see the damage he caused to his family? How do Ryder and Serena move on from here? I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and I definitely recommend it!
Ryder is a bad boy, tough underground fighter. Serena is a sheltered rich girl whose dad controls her life. Together they find a deep connection that carries them through their days. Despite being told they can’t be together by Serena’s dad and Ryder’s boss, Robert Erickson, they can’t fight the special connection that they share. I enjoyed reading the first book in the Corrupted Love series. The ending was a bit of a cliffhanger but I know the next book is coming out in just a few months so I won’t have to wait too long.
Ryder and Serena's story will have every emotion pulled from you. It's a wonderful story of forbidden love and being controlled by the people who are supposed to love and protect you. Must Read!!!
4.25 stars--IF I DREAM is the first installment in KM Scott’s new adult, contemporary CORRUPTED LOVE romance series focusing on former underground MMA fighter Ryder Rhodes, and twenty year old Serena Erickson’s story line. Told from dual first person perspectives (Ryder and Serena) IF I DREAM focuses on the forbidden relationship between former underground MMA fighter Ryder Rhodes, and his boss’s daughter Serena Erickson. Two years earlier, at eighteen years old, our hero’s contract is bought by businessman Robert Erickson, and Ryder Rhodes was now beholding to the man in charge. Enter his youngest daughter, Serena Erickson, a woman off limits to the hired help. What ensues is the building relationship between Ryder and Serena that is destroyed when Robert Erickson sends our heroine away for getting too close to Ryder Rhodes. Fast forward two years when Serena returns to a household that has changed but not. Ryder Rhodes has been fighting most of his life. His power and strength in the ring caught the eye of billionaire businessman Robert Erickson, a man whose power stretches into the seedy underbelly of abuse and control. Serena Erickson has struggled to gain her independence from her father but the disappearance of her mother years before has kept our heroine close to home in case the woman she loves should ever return. Serena’s defiance in the face of her father’s demands sets the stage for a heartbreaking story. Her father’s control extends beyond the kinship of family and blood when he uses his daughters as a bargaining tool to get what he wants in the world of business and financial success. The relationship between Ryder and Serena is fraught with regret, heartbreak, and a forbidden love but the heart wants what it cannot have. Two years apart has not broken the desire or love although life continued in the absence of one another. The $ex scenes are intimate without the over the top sexually graphic language and text. We are introduced to Serena’s sister Janelle, as well as Oliver Landon, a man who sets out to destroy the love between Serena and Ryder. The world building focuses on the forbidden relationship between Ryder and Serena; the power and control of one man over his family; and one woman’s struggle to uncover the truth about the mother who disappeared years before. Serena is all but a prisoner in the house she once called a home, and Ryder will become a glimpse into freedom but not for very long. IF I DREAM is an emotional, heartbreaking, angst-ridden story line of betrayal, love and deceit. The premise is dramatic and intense ; the characters are tragic and passionate; the romance is seductive and painful. IF I DREAM ends on a cliffhanger-so you have been forewarned.
If I Dream is the first book in KM Scott’s new series. It’s a great start. It ends with a cliffhanger and I hope I don’t have to wait too long for the next book, because I need to know what happens next. Ryder is a fighter. He’s damaged, talented and strong. He is caring and nice to Serena. Serena is the first woman who is nice to him and they talk a lot. The more they talk, the closer they grow to each other. Their friendship is a secret and they want to keep it that way. They eventually fall in love, but then something happens that breaks them up. Serena is a young and insecure woman who wants to get away from her father. She wants to go to college and then do a job she would love. She didn’t expect to fall for Ryder, but she falls hard for him. Ryder makes life better at home and she can’t imagine being without him for one day. She wants to fight for him. Ryder also fights for Serena. It’s kind of a forbidden love story. Serena’s father forbids Ryder to date Serena. They can be friends, but not more than that. I really hate Serena’s father and I hated him more at the end. He only thinks about one thing and it’s not his family. Serena also doesn’t like her father, but she still listens to him and does what he wants for one reason. There are a few twists and I was very shocked sometimes about what was happening. I definitely didn’t want to stop reading, because I wanted to know what would happen next and what would happen between Serena and Ryder. I hoped their relationship would be easier since their childhoods weren’t the best and they deserve happiness. I don’t agree with all the decisions Serena made. I hope she makes better decisions in the next book.
It’s been quite a while since I’ve read a KM Scott book, so when I heard about If I Dream, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. If I Dream follows the story of Ryder and Serena. All Serena has ever wanted is to live a life of her own, but she was trapped and destined to live the life her father mapped out for her. When Ryder came along, she had hope and for the first time ever, felt love. But, she knew that nothing could ever come of her feelings for Ryder. Her father would do anything to keep them apart… Ryder has never known any good. He has lived a cruel and unforgiving life..That was until Serena’s father brought him home. He took him under his wing and gave him a life that he could only dream of. He only had one rule, stay away from his daughters… Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Ryder and Serena’s story sucked me in from the very beginning. I loved the forbidden quality to their relationship. Ryder and Serena were the couple that you just couldn’t help but root for. They were both trapped and had no choice but to live the life that was laid out for them. They didn’t plan on falling in love, and when it happened, I couldn’t get through the pages fast enough. I had to know how things would play out. I had to know if our couple would find a way to happiness. I had to know if there would be any justice for the two of them…. If I Dream is the exciting first book in the Corrupted Love Series. This story had everything from action to romance to intense moments and lots of sexy good times. And it has an ending that will leave you begging for more. I for one can not wait to get my hands on the next book in this series and see how it will all play out!
This book began really well, when Ryder was fighter, but once he was sold, and fell for the boss's daughter, he became a whimp. In fact all the men were jerks. I had great hope for the plot, but was disappointed. No need to buy book 2 since I don't care about the end any more!
