Review: Dream of You by Jennifer L. Armentrout
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.

Personally, this wasn’t Jennifer’s best work by a long shot. While she can easily write the sexy men you will ever read about there are other things that a book needs to sustain my appetite. Abby has a dead husband and I felt so bad for him because it seemed like she was never really in love with him. She was always lusting after and fantasizing about Colton. I don’t understand why she would marry someone who you have no passion for…it made me want to punch her. Then my other pet peeve was that Abby was an editor; however, this felt more of like an author shout out session then a focus on the book. I have a bunch of awesome author friends, let me mention them all in this novella.
Abby has insecurities that are relate-able to every female out there. As a character though, Abby fell flat for me, if not overly dramatic and slightly annoying. There is a suspense in the story as well, and still that wasn’t enough to salvage this book for me.
