Love Me, Dreamy is the latest instalment in the Love Me series by Laura Burton. This is my first read from Ms. Burton, so apart from the intriguing blurb, I wasn’t entirely sure of what to expect I’d find when I embarked on this mysterious adventure. What a great surprise this book turned out to be- in a really great way! I had thought the story sounded sweet, light, and interesting- and I decided it would make a great ‘palate cleanser’ after a string of darker reads- but what I got was so much more.
This turned out to be an enthralling paranormal romance with a wonderful fantasy component, and some sci-fi elements. Ms. Burton has woven a wonderful tale that held all my attention from the beginning, right till the very end. I read it in one sitting and loved every word! I am so happy to find that there are two other books in the series for me to sink my teeth into!
This story may not be all that long, but Ms. Burton packs a lot into this polished package. There is an adventure, action, danger, mystery, suspense, intrigue, tension, emotion, wonderful world building, and so much more for us to appreciate. The story is very thought provoking, and I kept trying to piece everything together and figure out exactly what was happening- I had several scenarios running through my mind- but wasn’t entirely sure until towards the end. One of my scenarios turned out to be correct, which surprised me- because it could have gone in so many different directions. I really enjoyed the whole process- the plot, the characters, Ms. Burton’s easy flowing and dynamic style, and following along intently to find out one of my ideas was actually right. The story really was so cleverly constructed that I couldn’t be sure about anything, so I was clutching at straws and looking for any clues- guessing all the while with several possibilities. I was completely wrapped up in what was happening and desperately needed to know how things would play out.
Amelia and Toby are really wonderful characters, and I really loved meeting them and cheering them on from the sidelines. These two were perfect for each other- and the ending was the perfect way to finish this touching story. I am not going to get into the story here, because I really don’t want to give anything away- the surprising twist is worth discovering for yourself.
This is a sweet, clean, surprising, intriguing, and well written story that all fantasy/paranormal, and romance readers should have on their TBR.
I will definitely be reading more of Ms. Burton’s work in the near future! She’s an author whose work I won’t soon be forgetting.
Thank you, Ms. Burton!
