Able to navigate sleep’s vast dreamwaters, wild child Maisie Lane makes easy money as a courier delivering packages from one dream to another. So what if her employers are on the shadier side of the law? Her sister thinks she’s living for the pleasure of the moment. Pleasure is involved—why shouldn’t it be?—but every step Maisie takes is part of a careful plan. That is, until she crosses into a dream so evil, she has no choice but to run. 
Special Agent Steve Coll is tasked to recruit Maisie for Chimera, the organization that polices shared dreams. At first he’s taken with her funny and carefree spirit, then brought to his knees by her tough and passionate soul. Touching her is forbidden ecstasy, but Steve can’t resist breaking the rules with Maisie. A darkness is gathering, evil preparing to strike, and only Maisie stands between it and innocent lives. No matter what happens, Steve won’t let her stand alone—he’ll die before he leaves her side.
My thoughts:
I read the first one (still a free ebook at your fave retailer) and enjoyed it, but I have to say I enjoyed this one more. I think it is because the complex world here is pretty well established. I also was surprised that the short length didn't feel short to me. It felt like the perfect length. I'm always worried with a short book the romance will feel like insta-love (not a fan) but it didn't feel that way at all, especially when the couple first come at each other in the first book and it isn't love at first sight.

I give this book 4 stars. There is action, romance and some smexy times within the 110 pages. It is great if you want something short but not exactly sweet. It did have it's sweet moments but with so much action, it didn't last. I really enjoyed the characters and this is a series that needs to be read in order. I recommend it to those that enjoy PNR with a UF twist.


  1. Well you can't beat the price. I have only read one book by this author. I really need to try her again. Happy weekend, Melissa.

  2. Ooo, this one sounds fab, and I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'm happy to hear the characters were enjoyable, despite the short length of the book. Great review!

    1. I was surprised that it felt so full! I didn't mind that it was short once I read it. :)

  3. The action and romance sounds good in this one, though I haven't started the series

  4. " It is great if you want something short but not exactly sweet."

    Sounds like my love life. lol. I went a grabbed the first one!

  5. Oh man. I need to read her so bad. That's awesome it was short but didnt' feel like it was missing anything. Such a hard thing to accomplish.

  6. insta-love isn't really for me either but it sounds great. thanks for the discovery.

  7. I don't mind a short love story if insta love isn't the source of it, so this sounds great! I'm glad to hear the first book is still free, maybe I'll give that a go first. Lovely review!
