Sweet Dreams (Colorado Mountain Series Book 2) by Kristen Ashley $2.99 A Favorite!
Sweet Dreams - Kristen Ashley

Lauren Grahame needs a whole new life. A simpler life. After leaving her cheating husband, she moves to Carnal, Colorado, takes a job as a waitress, and realizes she might have finally found the hometown she'd been searching for. Except things are about to get a lot more complicated . . .

Lauren's fresh start does not include her growing feelings for her boss, Tate Jackson. She'll take the new friends, the new job, not to mention the incredible banana bread from the local coffee shop, but love is not on the agenda.

However, the people of Carnal know chemistry when they see it, and they're not about to let Tate and Lauren miss their chance.

Sweet Dreams - Kristen Ashley

Ms. Ashley writes compelling stories that need a heavy hand with an editor. Some of her writing quirks are just too much. The cutsey nicknames. The use of "babe" and "sorry" as a complete sentences. Jumping around the timeline and, bizarrely enough, jumping around points of view for only the last chapter are unique to this story and unwelcome. Where Ms. Ashley shines is in fleshing out her secondary characters and in building a believable small town atmosphere. Her stories are interesting and her talent is undeniable. What Ms. Ashley would benefit from is an editor to rein in her unnecessary tangents that go on for pages, her penchant for describing every single outfit the characters wear, and her chapter long rhapsodies on food. All of that could be excised from the book and still be a great story with great characters without all the extraneous blabber. Her books could easily be several hundred pages shorter and not lose anything essential to the story. I am always torn by Ms. Ashley's books. On one hand I appreciate the stories she tells and their appeal, on the other I am frustrated by the need for tighter writing and better adherence to grammatical rules. I give the story 3 stars and the editing 1 and ended up with 2.

I couldn't relate/empathize with the characters (I actually felt nothing about either the two, absolutely nothing); the domineering hero is a trope only few authors can get away with in my book, and once the heroine started spouting about zodiac signs and communes, it was over...Add to it absolutely no chemistry between the two leads, the predictability of the plot, and the snail pace at which it moved, I couldn't get past the 40% mark.

Sweet Dreams - Nina Lane Three years can come and go in the blink of an eye or it can seem like a never ending span of time. For one so young, Polly experienced a great deal in that time frame. The inevitable loss of a parent and the responsibilities that go along with the grief. The events gave her a sense of maturity, not associated with many twenty three year olds, but it also broke a large piece of her. To accept what is became her motto, instead of hoping for the best. Her world is about to be rocked in a really big way. (Literally and figuratively.)

All work and no play, has made Luke a wealthy man. With success comes attention and acceptance, not necessarily happiness. His fast paced existence is thrown off it's axis by a seductive woman, with hot and cold tendencies. Sweet Dreams is a confectionary buffet of sensuality, intense feelings and heartwarming moments. Stir in a bit of realism, sage advice and you have a breath of fresh air wrapped in a bundle of sweet goodness. A winning combination.
