Unique twist — Recommended
Twenty-four-year old Skye Patterson was orphaned at birth. Traumatic abuse in foster homes prevent her from allowing many people into her life, and certainly no man close, let alone into her bed. Self employed, Skye runs a transcription service and smartly invests her money, guaranteeing early retirement. Skye seeks out her doctor after three months of agonizing through very uncomfortable periods. When her Doctor prescribes birth control to regulate her cycle, she never suspects the true contents of this new miracle drug. Her doctor also refers Skye to psychiatrist Dr. Himes to treat her ongoing anxiety attacks. Little does she realize how much damage these “healers” will create.
The first time Skye saw a picture of Thaddeus Newman in the paper, she was hooked. Thaddeus is a powerful construction business owner. But their inadvertent meeting leaves her anxiety ridden. When Skye begins to experience dreams that feel vividly real, yet leave her exhausted. Soon she finds herself thrust into a world of …, businessmen, doctors, and murder, as she tries to discover what is happening to her. As Thaddeus aids her quest, in his own way, they can only hope to live long enough to make their own dreams a reality.
The author gives DREAMS OF REALITY a unique twist, which I thoroughly enjoyed. She takes a frightening tale of abuse, and turns the experience for the heroine into something possible. Without the drugs, Skye would never be able to overcome her panic and her past to allow Thadeus Newman into her life. With the drugs, she allows herself to experience the “elusively seductive” qualities of the man who laughter makes her eardrums tingle.
