Abby Erickson isn't looking for a one-night stand, a relationship, or anything that involves any one-on-one time, but when she witnesses a shocking crime, she's thrust into the hands of the sexiest man she's ever seen - Colton Anders. His job is to protect her, but with every look, every touch, and every simmering kiss, she's in danger of not only losing her life but her heart also.
"Do you believe in second chances?"
I have no idea why it took me this long to read this novella by JLA. I mean her books are awesome and I love her writing style.
Dream of You is a novella in the Wait for You series. The main characters are Colton Anders and Abby Erickson.
Abby is a freelance editor. She spends her time reading books (great job!) and four years ago she moved back home after she lost her husband in a car accident. Abby's life becomes extremely busy when she is the witness to a murder. Her life is in danger and the cop investigating the case is her teenage crush, Colton.
“A twenty-eight-year-old widow who needed to lose weight.”
Colton Anders is Reece's brother (the hero from Fall With Me). He is a good cop but he is willing to put his job in jeopardy to court Abby. He remembers Abby from high school. She had a boyfriend back then and he wasn't going to try anything but now she is free and he won't miss this opportunity.
“I’m sure as hell not going to risk my career to just screw around with a witness. If I’m going to take that risk, it’s going to be worth it.”
I love second chance romances and what better way to explain insta-love in a novella than using this plot line. I love both characters. I think any woman can relate to Abby's insecurities about her body. She was not thin and weight seems to be something we all worry about. Then enters Colton. Sexy, handsome and strong Colton. But, what made me love him was how good he was to Abby. He made her feel safe and beautiful giving her back her confidence. Nothing is better than that.
Dream of you was a great addition to the Wait For You series.
“I’ve dreamed of you for so long.”
