When I started this book, I thought I knew the story of Bethi and Luke, boy howdy was I wrong. Melissa Haag has done it yet again with Luke's Dream, it is a smash hit that kept me on the edge of my seat and turning pages as I anxiously poured over Luke's side of things. One thing the guys side has showed me is how much patience these guys have for their mates!! Luke's Dream was amazing and chock full of the FEELS, I laughed out loud, yelled at the Urbat, cried with Bethi, and felt for Luke as he struggled to control the pull to Bethi. Melissa Haag created this amazing world with Judgement of The Six and each glorious book adds such dimension to the story and further escalates the story! This is a must read!

"My Mate was a tiny, compact bundle of serious trouble." I am obsessed with the Judgement of the Six series, so of course I am loving all the companion novels as well! Getting into the heads of the males during the same journey has been just perfect. Luke’s Dream is no exception, I ate it up, with the appetite of a werewolf (which is monumental of course). I can’t believe how intrigued I was while reading, even though I know the story, frontwards and backwards, but somehow hearing it with the wit from the Brit, really kept the pages turning. Also, I was laughing so much while reading this book, I would say that it’s intentionally funny, but also reading the story from his perspective really shows how full of personality Bethi is, but also how some of Luke’s misguidings, now that you *know* what’s in his head, become so ridiculous. One thing is for sure, I had no idea how much about Luke we never got to know, because Bethi and him aren’t really talking about themselves in (Un)wise, more like just trying to run & survive. In Bethi’s head, we learn so damn much about the Judgements and with Luke, we get to see just how crazy Bethi sounds, and delve deeper into the politics of the pack. Bethi and Luke definitely have a flip-flopping courtship. It could almost be categorized as a hate-to-lovers romance. Bethi despises Luke at first and tries to run from him; meanwhile Luke thinks she’s just a child and keeps following her to try and protect her. Then Bethi decides she’d do anything to change her course and if that means claiming Luke than she will, but Luke does the impossible and resists her for as long as he can. Cue the hilarity to ensue, meanwhile they are in grave danger and Luke barely recognizes it. Luke has always been a sexy force to be reckoned with, but now we know so much more about him and with his smashing wit, good looks, and accent will make you swoon even harder. No matter what this male has a solid heart filled with good intentions. Having just listened to the audiobook of (Un)wise to prepare for the release of Luke’s Dream, I can’t wait to now re-read it and see how all the scenes add up in my head now that I know what Luke was going through too! The Judgement of the Six series needs to be read in order, but then you can immediately read the companion novels afterwards. So do that, ok?! I always say that this series is some of the most fun & unique YA werewolf stories I have ever read, and I definitely highly recommend!

Once again, I am impressed at Melissa Haag's ability to impress me with a retelling of one of her Judgement of Six series from the male's point of view! Luke's mind well conveyed, with his British vocabulary, sarcastic rebelliousness and his devotion, love and empathy for Bethi, even with all her mystery, lies and stubbornness. Most importantly though, Ms Haag was able to keep me so captivated that I took an extra long lunch at work to finish the action-packed climax, even though I've read Bethi's story (Un)Wise many a time (my favorite in that series). It felt like a completely different tale, taken from Luke's POV, and more importantly that added information that was missing from the Judgement book. It was hard to feel Luke's helplessness with Bethi's struggles, but I also wanted to shake him at times for his misplaced protective chivalry. Well-written, dark but funny, romantic, snarky and witty, absolutely action-packed, and mentally captivating. A great werewolf read that definitely adds to the Judgement of Six world.

Luke, Luke, Luke . . . wake up Luke!!! Swoon, sigh, Luke. Facepalm, Luke ROFL, Bethi Tears, Bethi Bang head against the wall, Luke Light bulb moments and major satisfaction! These are some of my reactions to Luke's Dream! I'm repeating myself, I know I am; Melissa Haag has done it again and she is a genius, seriously! Luke's Dream is a fabulous read and not just a repeat of Un(wise). I was totally surprised by what Luke was thinking in many scenes. The whole over-arching story is incredible and keeps building and building. I believe that with the JoS series, in order to understand it fully, you will need and want to read the male POV companion novels. Great book Melissa Haag!!

What an exciting addition to the Judgement of the Six lexicon! This companion series is fascinating, and adds so much to the series. Luke and Bethi are great characters, and an awesome couple. It is very interesting to dig a little deeper into Luke’s personality, motivations, and love. Author Melissa Haag does much to further develop the one dimensional Luke, from (Un)Wise, to the complex character, in Luke’s Dream. Haag weaves a truly cohesive companion to Bethi’s story with the addition of Luke’s Dream. It is a page-turner, and I couldn’t put it down. 5 stars

I love the male points of view for this series and was especially looking forward to Luke's. He is the British heartthrob with the unfortunate background and the bad-boy attitude. He likes to buck the system, break the rules and deep down feels the overwhelming desire to belong somewhere. He fights the call to mate Bethi initially because he is unsure of her intentions, later using the excuse that she is underage. But we find Bethi, from her own book and her appearance in this one, to be quite mature and responsible for her 17 years, and Luke has his hands full with the danger following her and the desire he finds more difficult to fight as the days pass. Her humor and attitude rivals his, and they're in a constant tug-of-war in which you know the outcome is going to be combustible on so many levels. In the end, we are left wondering if these two personalities were brought together because of her need to be saved from the imminent threats to her life or because Luke needs to be rescued in ways he never knew were necessary for his own survival and happiness. Luke is one of my favorite characters from Melissa Haag's Judgement of the Six series simply for his devil-may-care attitude and the humor that he brings to so many of the situations in which he finds himself. He's brash and sexy, intense and flippant, antagonizing whenever the mood strikes. He made me laugh out loud, swoon with images of his physique and knowing grin, and choke on unshed tears for the person he was and is growing into. Melissa Haag hits another one out of the park with this one. Once we met some of the women in the Judgement series, we all wanted to know what the men were thinking. She doesn't hold anything back, and each book just keeps getting better. This one has me craving more, and I can't wait for the next one.

Luke comes across more sassy when you're not in his head. That's really my only complaint here. Being in Luke's head is not nearly as fun as being in anyone else's head and dealing with Luke that way.

This is a companion story to Bethi's story in Unwise. Luke traveled to the US from England after his parents are killed. He has about given up on finding a mate and is considered a Forlorn, without a pack. After responding to the Elder call for an introduction to an unclaimed female, Gabbi. Her story, Hopeless was the first in the series. Luke is set on a mission by Gabbi and finds his mate. Read what it will take for him to claim Bethi's.

I love all of Melissa's books and this one is no different. It's fun to read the original which is told from the girls, in this case Bethi's point of view, and then get to read it from the male's point of view. I loved getting to know more about Luke and his reasoning and why he did what he did when he did. Melissa is so talented and I recommend reading all of this series as it's just that good!

Another great book by Melissa Haag. Another great book by Melissa Haag If you have been following along with Melissa Haag's Judgement of the Six series, this is a definite must-read. Sometimes companion books add very little to the story, but not so with these books. Luke's perspective adds a lot of depth and additional information to the overall story arc. He is also such just a likable, admirable character. He and Bethi have eclipsed Clay and Gabby as my favorites.

We got to know these characters in (Un)Wise, or did we? Sure we know how Luke’s actions seemed in both Hope(less) and in Clay’s Hope as well as in (Un)Wise, but we never really got to know the man…until now. Luke’s story follows Bethi’s fairly closely, but his perspective on everything takes the things that were hilarious in her story and made them a little more serious. And something I seemed annoying in hers to be positively sweet and funny in his. This is truly a companion story. It’s fun to read these books side by side and it’s almost like watching things unfold in split screen. Luke as a man, I wanted to throttle, hug, pinch his cheeks, and throttle again. I wasn’t sure Bethi could seem more fragile than she did in her own book, but it was interesting to see the fragility and strength that Luke picked up in her. Ms. Haag writes these companion stories in such a way that though we recognize what is going on, it’s spun in such a new fashion that it doesn’t feel like it’s being repeated or regurgitated. Instead, it feels fresh and new with these different perspectives. And these men as SO different than their mates think that they are, and that’s so cool and interesting and how it really is in life. So, would I recommend this book? I would, but you really need to read Hope(less), Clay’s Hope, (Mis)Fortune, Emmitt’s Treasure, and (Un)Wise before reading this one.

Would it be too cheesy to say this book is a Judgment of the Six lover's dream come true? Yeah? OK then I won't say that. Luke is my second favorite Judgment character next to Jim, and his story truly showed me a side of him I didn't even know existed. Although I did get more upset with Bethi reading his version of the story than I did with hers (which is found in (Un)wise) that only goes to show how emotionally invested I was thanks to Melissa Haag's way of drawing me in to the world and making me care for the characters. There are some truly harrowing and tense moments in this story, as we build up to the final Judgment not too far down the road at this point. There are also some spit-out-your-coffee-laughing moments to balance out the horror. And the major swoonage of course. My only complaint is that the ending feels rushed, but knowing that this is a companion novel to an overall series which continues in several more books, I'm not terribly disappointed. Honestly, even though Luke and Bethi are an odd couple they really work well together in the books that follow theirs, so I encourage you to read the series as a whole to get the full picture. This series is most appropriate for ages 16 and older.

I'm a huge fan of the JO6 series so naturally I have been clamoring for the companion books as they are released. In this book seeing all the things we missed happening while Bethi was "unavailable," in Unwise, was at times laugh out loud funny. Luke's internal dialogue was priceless. He wasn't my favorite H in the beginning, but seeing his loyality, caring, and driving desire to protect Bethi won my heart over. If you are a fan of the Judgment of the Six series you will not want to miss this companion novel. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review and I was not disappointed.

Another amazing companion book by Melissa Haag. “Luke’s Dream” the companion book to (Un)Wise was everything I was looking forward too and more. Luke is much more charming and I loved reading the growth of his relationship with Bethi from his POV. I was laughing out loud throughout my read. There are so many feels you experience however; heartbreak, joy, sadness, worry, and humor. Melissa Haag does an amazing job bringing you into the story as if you are living it yourself. Every story has two sides to it and I love how Melissa is incorporating the men’s side of the story with the companion books to The Judgement of the six books. You gain more understand of each couples story with both POVs and in addition you gain more of the overall story of the series. Some questions and ideas I had about the whole story was answered or hinted towards my suspicions in Luke’s Dream. I truly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. Can’t wait for the next one.

Luke's Dream is the companion novel to (Un)Wise in the Judgement of the Six series. I absolutely adored this book. I loved seeing Luke's perspective and his first impressions of Bethi. I may or may not have been reading the book with a British accent. ;-) This is a great book. I can't wait to read the next one!

Melissa haag has done it again. She has out done herself. She always seem to make you feel like you are there with the characters and she knows how to make each one feel so alive. Luke's Dream was an emotional rollercoaster. Luke and Bethi keep you on your toes with all the stuff they have to go through to be together. I love how out there Bethi is with Luke and how she makes him feel. Love it just wish it was lobger. Can't wait for the next one to come out. Going to have JOS withdrawals.

I feel like I waited forever for this book to be releases. I've been wanting a book from Luke's POV ever since I read (Un)wise. I couldn't wait to see what was going through his head at the beginning of the book. I was not disappointed. It was awesome and I can't wait for the next book.

I received an ARC of this book for an honest review. If you like werewolves, action, excitement, mystery, can't put it down type of books, this series is for you. Her werewolves are such heart throbs, you'll wish you could get one of them in real life. Melissa Haag keeps you coming back for more from her "Justice of the Six" series! This book is a companion novel from the leading man's (Luke) point of view relating to the book "[Un]Wise" (Bethi's point of view from the series). I honestly think the men's point of views are more interesting/entertaining, with more info snuck into it, that you don't get from the women's point of view. It's also interesting to see that the men & women think so differently (just like in real life!). I think this series would make more sense if you start at the beginning with "Hope[Less]". You can't go wrong with this series, I've enjoyed them & highly recommend them. But all of Melissa Haag's books are great in my opinion.
