The first book in the series is currently free on Smashwords (on every format)!
When Roman wakes from a six month coma, the first thing he sees is the girl of his dreams. Except Bryn isn’t confined to the dream-state anymore and neither is he. He’s awake and alive and as the memories of how he and Bryn fell in love come rushing back, so do the memories of why he’s lying in that hospital bed in the first place.The boy in her dreams is the sequel to The Girl in between and follows the story of Bryn, a teenage girl who suffers from Klein-Levin Syndrome ( a disease that makes her sleep for long periods) and Roman, a boy who just woke up from coma.
Plagued by guilt, Roman makes a decision that alters both their fates and as Bryn fights for her life in a German hospital, Roman must fight for her forgiveness before it’s too late. Because Roman and Bryn weren’t the only things to wake out of Bryn’s dreams. The shadows seem to be hunting them both and a strange side effect of Roman’s miraculous recovery may be the only means of stopping them. That is, if he can reach Bryn before she slips too deeply into the very dreams that seem to be imposing more and more on their waking lives every day.
This book starts off exactly were the previous left off. Roman has woken up from the coma and Bryn believes that things are finally looking better. But she couldn’t be more wrong. Roman may have woken up but he has changed. He’s no longer the boy Bryn met in her dreams. Roman is facing his own demons now and Bryn can’t do anything but wait for him. However, they both know that Bryn is running out of time. Her symptoms are getting worse forcing her to go to Germany to be part of an experimental cure for her disease.
Across the ocean, Roman realises his mistake too late. He should have never let Bryn leave like that. So, when Bryn’s uncle gives him the opportunity to fix his mistakes, Roman is happy to accept. Will the thruth set them free or rip them apart?
The boy in her dreams was insanely incredible. It was so interesting following their journey and it was quite a journey. I admired Bryn for her strength and Roman for his determination. They were both such strong characters. But so were and the secondary ones. Bryn’s mother has suffered so much yet she remained strong, calm and efficient for her daughter’s sake.
Moreover, I loved Dani, Bryn’s cousin and Felix, Dani’s boyfriend. Felix! Oh, Felix. What to say about him?! I think I might have liked him more than Roman. He was so sweet, charming, loving and protective! How could I not like him?! Anyway, Dani played a big role but I cannot say that I liked her that much in this book.
However, there were times that I got lost in the story. There were so many things going on at the same time that I truly lost the flow of the story. When things got quite normal again, it was much easier to follow the story. Besides that, everything else was great.
This book hid many secrets and it was very interesting unravelling them. There were many new characters and namy twists and turns. Watch out for the new characters! You never know who’s telling the truth.
Filled with action, suspense, romance, dreams and two incredible protagonists, The boy in her dreams will surely capture your attention.
