Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Gabe gritted his teeth. I’m tearing off the porch so I can build a deck here. It was Saturday afternoon, and Gabe was supposed to be watching Chip. It was Saturday afternoon, and Gabe was supposed to be watching Chip me Rachel had left him alone with the kid, but he knew she wouldn’t have done it if she hadn’t needed to run some mysterious errand in town. Gabe suspected that she was glad to find an excuse to get away from him. Ever since she’d made her announcement that she was leaving, she’d done her best to keep her distance.

I’m not eatin’ anything but my Lean Cuisine, Merylinn declared, heading for the microwave. Slap me if you see me even look at anything else.

The rapey alpha males in this book were just too much for me. Controlling, manipulative, power-wielding men simply do not qualify as romantic heroes. It really doesn't matter if he is motivated by "love"; when a man disables a woman's car so she will have to ride with him it's actually a crime and not a romantic gesture. And then there's the whole issue of the child, who is treated like an object by his mother and her angry self-absorbed lover/employer. I've enjoyed a number of SEP's books, but this one not only misses the mark, it does a real disservice to women. The ending is everything one could wish for, and everyone is redeemed, but you'd have to overlook a whole lot of unacceptable if not downright abusive behavior in order to let the ending redeem this book.

Road trips are great way to listen to books, but I would recommend listening to Dream a Little Dream on a road trip. Not that it was bad. No, it was a great story, but boy did it bring on the ugly cry. I mean the one where you will use anything that is soft to stop the tears. Fortunately, I happen to have a box of tissue in my car and I manage to keep the tears at bay, not very well.

At the beginning of Dream a Little Dream we meet Rachel Stone aka Widow Snopes. Now her dead husband did shady things, and she has to live with the consequences of his actions. Everyone believes she's this awful person, so she has to prove to everyone she's not the person they saw on TV. However, that is hard when no one is willing to give her a chance.

Anyway, the good people of Salvation, North Carolina are horrible people. At times I would be like scream you are hypocrites, because they talk about being followers of Christ and then they treated her like dirt. Fortunately there were a couple people that saw she wasn't the devil incarnated, like Gabe and Kristy.

Gabe has some serious issues. He has the hots for Rachel, but there is the issue of her child. It stems that he can never has his family again, so he doesn't want another family. This is a struggle for Rachel, because she's falling for Gabe; however, her priority is her son. Through most of the book, Gabe is thought to be a block of ice that slowly melts. I mean what Rachel goes through, she doesn't give up on life.

I do like the secondary love story between Ethan and Kristy. Kristy is so in love with Ethan, but all he can see is the big busty women. Bad preacher. LOL. So, when Kristy changes her appearance he lose it his s***, and he can't handle it. He has to face facts that he needs Kristy in life and she's absolutely perfect for him.

Wouldn't recommend this book for a long car ride cause the tears were streaming down the face. However, Susan Elizabeth Phillips does an amazing job with making me have the feelies for this story. Adore Rachel and her inner strength to conquer the past. She's truly a good person, even when no one believes her to be one. I also love how she exacts revenge on Cal and Ethan in the end. That was awesome. I like how Gabe comes to realize that he can love again after tragedy. Overall, a pretty darn good story. If you are in a need of a good cry, Dream a Little Dream is a go to read.

Review:

It’s no secret that SEP has figured out a magic formula for her stories that coincides precisely with what I look for in a highly satisfying romance: top-class humour, off-the charts banter and sexual tension, quirky yet tough down-on-her-luck heroine, a great redeeming act of love with a topping of angst, and a reluctantly in love hero. This is also everything the current book offered, in loads. This time the emphasis, however, was on the angst (less so on the humour), which I don’t mind at all, but there was an aspect of unnecessary cruelty there as well, that I kind of did have an issue with.

I cannot stress enough how much I adored, respected and admires Rachel. She had been through hell and her path of pain and humiliation did not end with meeting the hero. She was constantly mocked, bullied, offended, discriminated against… the whole package. And, while I somewhat understand the motivation of the townspeople, knowing the truth, that she was not the big bad, instead she was the most direct and unfortunate victim of her conman husband, I was very protective of her and took her troubles to heart. And, wanted to beat up and give a piece of my mind to all the ignorant morons. This included the brothers of Gabe, however charming they allegedly were supposed to be, and however much I sympathized with Cal in his own book. Despite this constant bullying, Rachel was hardworking, determined, upbeat and, most of all, she was an incredible sacrifice-herself-in-a-heartbeat mother to her adorable son Edward aka Chip.

Chip was simply delightful. I just wanted to take him and put him in my pocket to protect forever. I did feel, however, that the fearful, somewhat borderline abusing relationship between him and Gabe went a bit too far. I can try to understand Gabe’s pain and the cause for his behaviour, but Chip was such a sweetheart that even a slight wrong look towards him made me jump with my fist up, ready to bounce.

The romance between Rachel and Gabe was somewhat bittersweet, a lot more emotional and mature than other SEP books. Both of them hid tons of pain inside, but while Rachel forced the sun to shine over her head against all odds, Gabe revelled in the constant dark cloud over him. They were the couple you just cannot see working out, due to, among everything else, the mountain of baggage, but that surprise you in the end with outlasting everyone. The slow burn was also welcome and I appreciated that it took some time for them to have their relationship even slightly functional. A steady and constant development is key to an enjoyable romance that makes you cheer for the main couple and become invested. The epilogue was like balm on a wound and I thought it was a perfect bright sunny day in the end of years of rain. It did come across as too good to be true though, due to that drastic change, but enough angst and agony is enough.

The typical side romance, which SEP always ads as a side dish, didn’t do it for me this time. The coming together of Gabe’s younger brother Ethan and his overlooked secretary Kristy, was too superficial, short and cliché. It had potential though, so maybe a more detailed approach would have guaranteed better results. Maybe they should have had their own book? I think so. It would have also provided time to have a more positive image painted of Ethan, who was smeared with quite a bit of mud due to his treatment of Rachel. Also, being part of the Chicago Stars series, the story doesn't have much to do with football or it's hunky athletes, only Cal makes an appearance.
