It had felt so real. 5 sandstars There was more to life than the eye could see, right? So, somehow this had to be real. She had faith. She believed. He had never even expected to find her. He never thought that his dreams would come true. Oh Mister Sa-a-andman, bring me a dream!! Sung in my best 'Marilyn "Happy Birthday" Monroe voice! (Be thankful I didn't really sing that! LOL) WHEW! I have had hot dreams, I mean, who hasn't, right? But NEVER have they been about The Sandman nor have they ever been THIS ama-sand-ly, THIS sanderful, THIS so sandtabulously PERFECT!! This is Aryne & Alainn's story and it is SOOOO hot I am surprised they didn't make glass!! (when sand is heated to extreme temps it forms glass - Sweet Home Alabama was good for more than just Patrick & Josh, you know! LOL) But I digress! This is one helluva story! A shorter, HOT love story with The Sandman is unique in itself, but the rich history & 'powers' of his people turn this story from a 'random' erotic short into a story that IS a story! Of course, as always, I do wish this story was longer, but it might have melted my poor tablet if it was! It is written so beautifully and with that magic that both pulls you into the story and connects you to the characters - real or dream. I would love to see this story expanded into a longer novella or full length story that would be the perfect book to kick off a series involving Aryne's families...too start! hint hint, Beverly :-) Regardless if my dreams do come true or not, this is one SANDTASTIC story that everyone should read!
The title of this book pretty much describes the whole thing, and after reading all I can say is “Yes, please!” Alainn has been having dreams that include a very sexy, very attentive lover. He provides companionship, pleasure, acceptance, love…but she thinks it’s all just a dream. Aryne is the “sandman” who has been watching over Alainn, and he’s ready to take things out of the dream realm and into reality. How will Alainn react? Will they be able to have a shot at a “real” relationship outside of dreams? Can dreams become reality? This is just a great little short story. It’s fun, it’s sexy, and the H/h have great chemistry and sexy fun time. I thought the writing style flowed very well and made me not want this very short story to end. I would definitely pick up a full length book by this author. Plus, she was able to make something that is paranormal into something that you could conceive of happening, which is what makes good paranormal romance extraordinary. The supernatural combined with everyday life. It was just a great read. 4.5 stars. Reviewed by Sara Squared for Crystal’s Many Reviewers *Copy Provided for review*
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream... *Book source ~ Purchased on Amazon The Sandman visits Alainn at night. He’s supposed to give people a tiny pinch of sand so they have good dreams, but he can’t stop there with her. There’s something about Alainn, he needs to touch her, but he can’t let her touch him or she’ll drain his powers and he’ll be trapped on Earth. But he can’t help himself. He’s compelled to visit her over and over again. He must find a way to bring her to his world without killing her. Alainn has always been a daydreamer, getting into trouble all of the time because she would have her head in the clouds. But when the erotic dreams start with the shadow man she begins to think she’s going insane. They seem so real! This is a delicious short story about a character I’ve never seen in all the books I’ve ever read: The Sandman. Original and hot, you won’t want to miss this tale. I’d love to read more about Alainn and her Sandman as well as others of his world. Hint, hint. *winks*
This was a quick, steamy read that I enjoyed. It had a unique storyline, and I really liked the characters. I also liked that this story was different from other books that I have read, mixing up different worlds, dream visits, and the possibility of being from another realm. The steamy times were hot, and I definitely found myself engaged with the characters as they tried to understand where they belonged in their worlds. My only complaint was that I felt the story need to have more to it and the ending didn't really leave me with enough information to finish the story in my mind. I know this is only a novella, but again, I would have just liked to have had a little bit more! All in all I give this book 3.5 "I just wanted a little bit more" stars. I was given a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
A touching and erotic story about soulmates (bondmates) and love that transcends dimensions and worlds. I thought this short novella was well written and very steamy. The characters and imagery was very descriptive and detailed. My big complaint would be that it was too short, I wish there had been more time to get to know more about each of these characters: where they came from, where they are going. This is such a fascinating and original idea for a love story, I would just love to see it enhanced in a full length novel. **I was provided a copy of this ebook from the author for honest review**
