Do you ever have dreams tht were so vivid, so exciting you thought they were real. Is it difficult sometimes to distinguish between dreams and reality. Well, this is what Cynthia has been experiencing. Sometimes she dreams even when she is awake and it’s difficult to tell what is real and what isn’t. When she is put in jeopardy by a threat at work, Gabe, the man who is her protector from her dreams comes to her rescue. But all isn’t as it seems.I likes the premise of this paranormal story as the author blurred the lines between dreams and reality and I found myself wondering what was real and what wasn’t. The story will make you think as you attempt to unravel the mystery surrounding Gabe and the goings on in Cynthia’s office.
This is an easy quick read and should appeal to fans of romantic suspense as well as paranormal romance. A good first outing for a debut author.
I’d recommend anyone to read this book to feed their appetite for suspense, strong plot background, and hot male guardians. I’d say dig in!
I have received a free copy of Dream Hunter and have found it intriguing. I loved the storyline and the Cynthia is a fun character. I liked her personality and wit. She fell in love with her guardian angel-Gabriel and they teamed up to help Cynthia solve the mystery about her boss threat made at his office. This becomes a detective work for both protagonists and is full of excitement,laughter and uncertainty.In my opinion this novel is captivating and will definitely keep you reading it until the end of it.
This book definitely has potential but it felt like something was missing. The characters lacked substance and I felt that Cynthia trusted Gabe far to quickly. I feel it could be improved if it was taken slower and perhaps the danger was increased. A promising start.
This week I read Dream Hunter by Maya Tyler upon request. Maya is a new author for me, so I did not go into this book expecting any certain style format. I also purposely did not read the synopsis so I would go into the story “blind”.Dream Hunter is a fast action, jump right into it book. The writing is clean (grammar, errors) and vividly descriptive. A couple times in the story I thought I was confused, only to find out that the author had weaved the story in a direction I did not expect. Well done, because I love twists and turns and surprises, but am rarely treated to the experience as most authors follow the same story format.
The guardian concept and how the author went with this story is a new path, so that was also fun and exciting (ie: it wasn’t another OOTB paranormal).
I did read most of the other reviews. I am glad that most other readers also find this book well done. I think that some people that were critical forget that this is a novella, so much of the back story and “underbelly” are not there to fully flesh this book out. I think that the author’s writing is well developed and if she chose to make this into full blown novel, she would have a book that I would definitely read more than once. Would I like to read a full 200-300pgs? Absolutely!
For anyone reading reviews that are not sure about this book, I would encourage you to go ahead and read this book and form your own opinion. I use these novellas as a way to decide if I like a new author’s style and concepts. I definitely like Maya Tyler’s book and look forward to her next work…
