When Neela is kidnapped she looks to the only person who has always been there for her for help. The man she created in her dreams. After she is rescued she forgets everything that happened and she forgets about her dream man. Turning up pregnant she realizes she needs to remember exactly what happened for the sake of her own sanity.
When her dreamworld and reality become mixed everything changes for Neela.
A quick read, this fantasy romance shows that even when things are at their worst they arent' always as bad as you think. We all need our own dream man and if it were me, I think I'd create him like Neela did with a Scottish brogue accent.
As dreams come alive, trouble lurks around the corner.
When Neela Raymond and three of her college girlfriends take a camping trip over spring break, they’re abducted by a group of men and held captive for a week. At least that’s what Neela’s been told—she can’t remember any details of the horrifying event. But one thing is very apparent—during that week she became pregnant. Afraid of the possibilities, Neela finds it difficult to attend classes, eat, or sleep.
When Neela finally falls asleep, she wakes in a dream world, where she finds Gabe O’Shay. Though she can’t remember him either, something in her recognizes him.
Gabe and Neela are best friends of a different sort. Created in Neela’s mind when she was just a child, Gabe has always been her dream friend, growing as she did, to eventually become the man of her dreams.
With Gabe’s help, Neela’s memory begins to return, and ugly truths emerge. Snagged in a violent, illegal scheme, Neela will have to struggle for survival. The nightmare is not over yet.
Meanwhile, Gabe has managed to find a tear between the dream world and the real world, but will he arrive too late to help his Neela?
