Vincent Blackman is a little…unhinged. He recently fought a nightmare from the world Darkside and won. Now he fears nothing and wants revenge on the man who had his father brutally murdered. And how convenient to find an ally in Mirren Lambert, his enemy’s gorgeous and sexy daughter. Unfortunately, she’s made a few enemies of her own.
She might be a nightmare, but she’s also his ultimate fantasy.
Mirren was born half human, half nightmare. She was on the run from her ruthless father, but when he abducted her young son, she knew he had to be stopped once and for all. Dangerous Vincent is just who she needs to help her, though she has a perilous part to play as well, infiltrating her father’s circles to discover his secrets. They learn something dark is stirring in the dreamwaters, and it’s reaching toward the waking world. Vincent might be holding on to the last of his sanity, but that’s okay, as long as he holds on even tighter to her.
Bring Me A Dream is the fifth installment in the Reveler serial, a hot paranormal romance set in a world where shared dreaming is a new pop culture phenomenon that allows people to indulge their wildest fantasies. But there are also unknown dangers Darkside; nightmares are slowly infiltrating not only dreams, but the waking world as well. And behind them all is a shadowy entity called the Sandman.
Revel with me.
Mirren Lambert is the daughter of the crazy and power hungry scientist who discovered and marketed the world of Reves, a place to share dreams and escape reality. Mirren like her father, Didier, is not wholly human and is partially composed of a living nightmare but she has gone to great lengths to protect her son from her father’s machinations. Now with the help of the charismatic Vince, she seeks a way to stop her father but there are rumours of a power known as the Sandman working with him to bring nightmares into reality. Vince seeks vengeance whilst all Mirren wants is to protect her child but there's something strong growing between them that's impossible to ignore. These two damaged people have a long journey ahead of them and there are no guarantees everything they see is real. Dreams are invading reality and danger stalks the unwary with death creeping ever closer. Time to wake up or die!
Each of these books seems to feature one particular couple, although they all connect and the storyline continues to build. Vince first appeared in the first book but he wasn't quite on the side of the angels! No, Vince was trying to help his father, who had unfortunately gotten involved with the wrong type of backers and he paid a terrible price for it. Vince may have somehow crawled his way back to the waking world but his sanity is fractured and he is clinging on by a thread. Meeting the gorgeous and dangerous Mirren awakened something in him that's impossible to ignore. He should run screaming away from her and yet, all he wants is to immerse himself in the beauty of her. Theirs is an intense and crazy relationship and yet it pulsates with life as Vince embraces all that Mirren is. Mirren is not sure who to trust and makes mistakes but Vince never doubts her.
Absolutely fantastic world building in these books. They are dark and often disturbing but the relationships and romance elevate them and make them a joy to read. It's a frightening idea that Ms Kellison contemplates, with science manipulating our dreams, but she tackles it with aplomb and skill, which enables each book to bring something fresh and exciting to the storyline. I can't wait to read what happens next and if you have not tried this series yet, then it's way beyond time to get on board!
