Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wisecracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were 18? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died.

My name is Etan, and I am Adorned. A living piece of art, I exist to please the divine rulers of Kered. With nowhere to turn after my father died, I tried my luck in the capital city. Little did I know how quickly I would be robbed, beaten and forced to sell myself into servitude. But I was lucky enough to gain the attention of Roberd Tallisk, an irascible but intriguing tattoo artist who offered to mark me with enchanted ink for the enjoyment of the nobles. I was given a chance to better my station in life, and I could not refuse.

What a beautiful, heart-gripping story!! I loved it!! The author transports you to a place in time that, while indecipherable in itself, is so richly described you can actually see, hear and touch it. As others have reviewed the prose is absolutely beautiful. The plot chains intrigue, vanity, despair, admiration, survival, grit, loneliness, and ultimately love… and Mr. Tristan demonstrate to be a master at it. Oh, and Tallisk’s art!! Etan’s tattoos (and his brothers/sisters) were so wonderful and captivating *bows to author* Excellent book!!!

My fave two: The Naked Prince and The Golden Rule.

The Naked Prince:
Sweet!! My favorite part is the backstory with Cinder’s parents <3 <3 <3 Loved that HEA also includes the happiness of all villagers.

The Golden Rule:
Hilarious!! The whole freaking fairy kingdom is gay XD I liked how the brothers turned their opinion about Goldilocks.

IMO all stories, like the fairy tales they are, have some elements in common: 1) Parents that claims family is the most important thing yet their actions shows otherwise 2) The importance of appearances in society over and over again 3) How being true to yourself makes you stand out and reach your dreams... AND 4) Good/Love always wins.

I loved Joel Leslie's narration. His performance made the stories real, sexy and funny.

I'm a cop with the Alandale City police force. I love my job; protecting the public and getting rid of scum was what made my day. Everything was going just fine until my lunch was interrupted by some rich, arrogant jerk in an Aston Martin who thought he could just speed past my squad car and get away with it. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I wrote Mr. Ledéo his speeding ticket, but after what happened to me, I wish I had just let him go. Maybe then, my world wouldn't have been turned upside down.

Skin to skin contact is illegal. Sex? A felony. Insulated suits and gloves keep people from even the most platonic touches. Citizens line up in droves at simhouses for their rationed, prescribed orgasms in virtual reality machines. Keith Borden has worked in a simhouse for years, and he's never been tempted to break the strict no-contact laws...until Aiden Maxwell comes along.

"Daddy" is not a title Rue Murray wanted, but he never thought he'd have sex with a woman either. Now he's the unwitting father of a newborn named Alice. Between bartending and cosmetology school, Rue doesn't have time for babies, but he can't give her up. What Rue needs is a babysitter, and he's running out of options. He's on the verge of quitting school to watch Alice himself when he remembers his reclusive new neighbor, Erik.

Logan Sellers' parole officer has issued three commandments: Stay sober, stay employed, and stay out of trouble. At first, Logan thought those three simple rules would be easy to follow. But that was before he accepted a side job assisting his boss' housebound agoraphobic nephew Caleb. Caleb is deceptively normal for a guy who hasn't left his apartment in three years, and his friendly, caring personality tugs on heartstrings Logan didn't know he had.

This was one great love story. I wanted to hug Caleb and put it in my pocket to protect him forever. As for Logan, well, maybe the pocket was not exactly where I would put him *wink* Now, seriously, the story may have been a bit slow at times, but I think it suited its purpose. I love how we were served to every emotion whirling around inside the MC's heads. There are a few pleasant surprises along the way, although the outcome was kind of predictable (but I'm okay with that. I really liked my HEAs).

I like Mr. K.C. Kelly's voice and performance. I agree with some of the other reviews that his voice is more fit to fantasy than this particular book (Brute was absolutely awesome). But that's okay, nobody does a stutter like he does... and that sold me out.

Overall, I was very pleased with the plot and the MCs. Highly recommended for those who like odd pairings and enjoy a sweet, angsty Sunday reading. (less)

Rachel Stone is a widow and single mother, broke and alone. Worse, her late husband, a televangelist, stole five million dollars, none of which came to her. Nor did she know about the theft, but it still makes her an outcast, and she is desperate. Then she meets Gabriel Bonner, who gives her a job. Romantic sparks fly, but love is never easy. Gabriel has a tragic loss of his own, and his family, fearing Rachel's motives, campaigns loudly against her.

Where does Dream a Little Dream rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

At the top 10, that's for sure.

What other book might you compare Dream a Little Dream to and why?

Out of SEP books, and oddly enough, I would think of Elizabeth Lowell's Only His. I guess Cal reminded me so much of Caleb (and not only for the ring of their names). They were both protective and powerful men on the outside with tender, loving and wounded hearts that needed healing.

What about Anna Fields’s performance did you like?

Yes. As always (at least with all I have heard on her) she did wonderfully.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Wow, it's difficult to decide. There were so many scenes that brought tears and laughter that I couldn't pick only one. The last few chapters I'll admit were the most dramatic.

Any additional comments?

If you haven't read it yet, please do. The Chicago series is great and this is one of my favorites. Without giving anything important away I couldn't make it justice, but take my word for it. Great Book!
