Secret Dream is a wonderful story about the evolving relationship between Lia Cassidy and Cav Jordan, that began in Nowhere To Hide, Book 1 of the Delos Series. Glad to be leaving their nightmarish existence behind them, in the jungles of Costa Rica, Lia and Cav are now going to be working for the Delos Charities in their Virginia Headquarters. Before they begin their new jobs, though, and aside from needing a well deserved rest, Lia needs to feel the loving support of her family, as never before. With all the love in their hearts for each other, based on shared encounters, Lia is anxious for her parents to meet Cav. She needs them to see how different he is from the men in her past who rejected her because of violent experiences that left physical and emotional scarring. In the farm fields in Oregon, Ms. McKenna draws you into the lives of her characters in such a tangible way, that if they are eating breakfast, you are sitting there beside them, enjoying the meal, as well. If the air is thick with tension, you can feel it like a dark cloud. I found myself getting angry when a response wasn't to my liking and smiling like a loon when I “eavesdropped” on Lia and Cav. Lia's parents' reaction to Cav are very different and I loved the way Cav boldly took the bull by the horns with Lia's Mom, to ensure Lia's peace of mind and cement their relationship. Lia is a woman who may not always feel sure of herself but to see her bright spirit join with Cav's vulnerability is something special, indeed! Kudo's for this lovely follow-up!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The novella is a continuation of Nowhere To Hide by Lindsay McKenna. It’s not that you have to read Nowhere To Hide to enjoy this novella however it was for me, and it was a chance to read more about Cav and Lia. I should say that these two captured my heart at the start of the Delos series so I was anxious to catch up with them. Annnnnnnnnd I wanted to steal Cav away and just shower him with hugs. This story is all about the love shared by Lia and Cav and how they, in turn, share that with Lia’s family. Both Lia and Cav have background stories (Nowhere To Hide is all about Lia’s dealings with South American kidnappers; and it was a FANTASTIC story that will tug your heart) but mostly this story is about Lia’s family, their acceptance (or not) of Cav, and Cav dealing with his own family past. The Delos series is such a wild ride – Secret Dream has a love story, family drama, and a weaving of Delos that can’t be beat. I love this book, I love the series, and am always impatient for the release of just one more, so that I can catch up with this amazing group of people… Can’t recommend this book, and series, enough.
