Romance Book Review: Only In My Dreams

Author: Dana Marie Bell
Series Connection: Halle Pumas
ISBN: 978-1-60504-826-0
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Samhain Publishing


A lot has been going on with the Halle Pumas since Gabe realized that Sarah was his mate, but he is finally ready to claim her as his own when he comes home to find a man in his house claiming that he would make a great "Hunter". Gabe is intrigued by the idea, but unfortunately it would require that he hold off for six months before he mates with Sarah while he go through with his training. With a quick call from the airport, Gabe is gone leaving Sarah alone.

Sarah is working hard to wait until Gabe comes back from his training so that they can mate, but the longer he is away the farther apart they become. To make matters worse, while he isn't calling and keeping in touch with her, he is talking to Chloe, the little waitress at the local restaurant, leaving Sarah to wonder what is going on.

To make matters worse, when he finally returns from training he seems more interested in spending time with Chloe then he is with Sarah. What is Sarah to believe than that he has made his choice to mate with the other woman and not her?

Only in My Dreams is book 5 in the Halle Puma series. After reading a few of the other books I would say that while this book can be read on it's own, it would be better to read the series as a whole to understand all the characters involved. Of the others that I read, this one isn't one of my favorites. I thought that both characters had a lot of potential, but found that Gabe could be a little more considerate and understanding of Sarah's feelings and give her the time she asked for and Sarah needed to get a tougher spine where Gabe was concerned. For the most part however this book was well written and conformed well with the series.

Delayed gratification has its place. This isn't it.

Gabriel Anderson has accepted a unique position in the shifter world. He’s about to become a Hunter, one of the few
trained and sanctioned to hunt down the rare rogue shifter dangerous to humans and shifters alike. There’s one catch: until his training is complete, he must hold off on marking his mate. No problem…after all, she probably couldn’t handle
the sexual demands he dreams of making on her.

Her mate’s apparent desertion devastates Sarah. And his friendship with another woman threatens the bond they should be sharing and building. Maybe flirting with another man will make him sit up and take notice—and finally win Gabe’s heart. It works. Almost too well.

One touch of another man’s hand on Sarah’s tempting body brings every ounce of Gabe’s possessiveness roaring to the surface. He wastes no time making his erotic dreams of dominating her a reality—whether she’s ready for it or not.

If she’s not, the only place he’ll ever have her is in his dreams…

Warning: This title contains graphic language, explicit sex, deep blue eyes and spanking. The author is not responsible for any tall, dark and handsome men who slip into your dreams.
