Title: Sweet Dreams (Colorado Mountain #2)
Author: Kristen Ashley
Published: June 24th 2014 by Forever
Plot: She’s ready for the ride of her life . . .
Lauren Grahame (MC #1) is looking to reinvent herself. After leaving her cheating husband, Lauren moves to Carnal, Colorado and gets a job as a waitress in a biker bar called Bubba’s (love this about the story!). It’s a nothing job in a nowhere joint . . . until Tatum Jackson walks in (:O ). Lauren has never seen a man with such good looks, muscles, and attitude. But when he insults her, Lauren doesn’t want anything to do with him. Too bad for Lauren he’s also the bar’s part owner and bartender.
When the rough-around-the-edges Tate (MC #2) meets the high-class Lauren, he thinks she won’t fit in at Bubba’s. Yet there’s more to Lauren than meets the eye, and Tate soon sets his mind on claiming her as his own. Before long, the desire burning between them is heating up the cold mountain air. But when violence strikes the town, Tate must reveal a dark secret to Lauren, one that may put an end to their sweet dreams.
This book was…. PERFECTION!
Warning: There might me comparison b/w Beautiful Disaster, and this book (just warning you 😉 )
I’m going to tell everyone now, if you decide to read this book and no, you don’t have to read the first book first, but if you want to understand the characters and relationships better, then I recommend you do… Please note, that the main guy character, Tate, he is just like Travis in Beautiful Disaster… if you haven’t read Beautiful Disaster, we’ve got some problems…
And what I mean by that, is that Tate likes to have things his way, and he likes to claim things… And that’s what Tate does here, but in the end, for Travis too of course bith of these men learn that this isn’t the 17th century, and the women can have their own rights, and they don’t need to be told what to do.
This “claiming” that people like to call it, has 2 sides.
One: It can be that these men have a case of “over-protectiveness”, like if they’re the alpha of a pack, claiming their mate… which is cute :3
But the other one: can be known as abuse, which gives abuse a whole different definition, just saying…
In my opinion I really don’t think its “abusive” I just think these men didn’t have a good childhood, (like no parents, or family, and in some cases that was the reason) and they didn’t have a loving and caring woman in their life, (all they had were one-nighters shame…) so these men thought they weren’t capable of love. Which changes in this book!!! (for Tate)
Anyway back to my review…
The reason this book is 600 pages long, is because this story starts with Lauren moving from her perfect life.
Then Lauren going on a 4 month trip to find the place she wants to call “home”.
And this place ends up being Colorado, I forgot the city name :3 but this city is a biker village, which means its very small, they’re lots of biker gangs, and on top of that Lauren waitresses at the bar!!! how does that not interest you?! Yes, its stupid, but come on!! Its fun, and interesting to read about a girl, who was rich, and spoiled, turn into someone completely different in the end!!
Also, this story is very detailed, which is why the pages are so long to get through, because the author describes in detail the village, peoples appearances, the POV’s thoughts, and feelings, and the situations…
I loved Tate’s and Lauren’s relationship build, I loved that Lauren was nice but at the same time, if you mess with her, she can make you speechless, and I loved Jonas!!! (not telling you who he is :), but he’s ADORABLE!), also the way all their characters played their role in this book 🙂
You don’t have to read this series in order, but if you want to know the village, the character’s friendship, and the relationships, then go ahead and read the first one before this one, but its not mandatory 😉
