Reviewed by Megan Sparrow for Readers' Favorite When Jenna shares an elevator with gorgeous actor Jacob Walker, little does she know that it's only the start... Day after day, Jacob comes into Jen's coffee shop and the two soon become tentative friends. However, geography and numerous misunderstandings drive a wedge between them, resulting in the pair drifting apart. Months later, they meet unexpectedly on holiday in Italy, rekindling their friendship, which soon becomes something more. However, the path of true love never runs smooth! Sweet Dreams is a beautifully romantic story by Jennifer Senhaji, perfect for anyone who's a romantic at heart. This book was a really enjoyable read with great characters; Jenna was snarky and down to earth, if a little accident prone, with a great taste in music – you’ve got to love a book with its own soundtrack! As for Jake, he wasn’t your typical alpha male, which was a nice change of pace. I liked the fact that the pair got to know each other as friends instead of falling instantly in love, though the attraction was definitely there from the beginning. The only thing I found with Sweet Dreams was that though Jacob was supposed to be an A-list actor, it didn’t play as big a part as I would have expected, except at the end with the tabloids. At times I found myself almost forgetting that he was supposed to be famous. Also, I would have liked a few chapters from his point of view, especially after the token chapter at the end! Jennifer Senhaji writes this story really well, though very simply, and it’s a great read to escape reality with for a few hours!
Dreamy Man, Sweet Woman What if the world's sexiest movie star was starting a romance - no, a friendship - no, a romance - with you, and nobody knew about it? That's the premise for Sweet Dreams, and there's much to like about this charming debut novel. Jenna is easy to like, and movie star Jake is even easier to fall in love with. However, the pace at the beginning is glacial, and those who read most contemporary romances will be wondering when or even if there will be some action. Once the romance DOES start, it's toe-curlingly hot. The many music references may either charm or annoy you (we get it, she's got eclectic tastes). I am also not a big fan of this type of novel written in first person, but it works okay. The Happy Ever After is VERY satisfying, because the characters have been so richly drawn and they were definitely people I cared abut by the end of the story. Look for more good stories to come from this author!
