    "scary disturbed nightmares!"

    This book starts off with a bang. starts right off with a very disturbing dream of killing her parents. how does a book keep up the pace after that? Well somehow Zizi Cole does it.
    This a great mix of paranormal and mystery all tied together. It will not leave you disappointed. great work ZIZI! I look forward to hearing more from you.

    Mss Parker did a find job performing in this book! She bought great life into the voices! and I would listen to a book she reads again. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Sweet Nightmares"

    This audiobook is a mixture of bit mystery, a bit thriller, and a bit romance. Alexandrea has a very warm and supportive group of people around her to help her through this difficult time. It is exciting to see her discover things about her heritage throughout the book. There is a lot of suspense and I kept me interested listening to the audiobook

    "Magical Love Story"

    This book could have been better with a different narrator. I liked the story line and the ending. Unusual ending made this book.

    "great paranormal book"

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    This book starts off with some intensity, so that was a nice change from the normal slow burn. The premise of nightmares impacting reality was a cool addition. I liked that the romance aspect was a small part of the book and not the main focus. The story had some nice twists and the narrator kept everything moving forward at a nice pace. All in all, worth a credit.

    Story
    "Cool Concept!"

    Lexi moves back home after a bad relationship. Her parents die soon after and she blames herself nut not in the way most people do. She saw herself do it and can remember details of doing it. She reunited with a cousin who lives in town Mia and her high school sweetheart Jake. What she see's isn't really her killing her parents but a dream of it and she see's other dreams, horrible dreams and there's a man who visits her dreams.

    The story is fast-paced, plot directed and includes strong characters. It's an easy book to sink into and listen in one shot. Mia and Lexi soon learn they aren't everyday people but have special and unique abilities passed on from their parents and heritage. Mia knew but Lexi didn't. After all the dreams and other wild things that start happening she soon learns.

    A paranormal romance with crazy plot twists and excitement!

    I received this book free for an honest review.

    "Super fun! Impossible to put down!"

    I loved this story, it catches you from the beginning and keeps your interest to the end! Full of mystery and magic, but in a fun non-cheesy way! The characters are smart and engaging and expertly narrated. The narrators voice is pleasant and there is something vulnerable about it that really helps you understand the character. As always I plowed through it in a couple days! My only complaint is the next in the series isn't on audible yet!!! I want more! I received a free copy of this book at my request in exchange for a honest review. Thank you!

    "Not so Sweet Nightmares"

    I really enjoyed this supernatural thriller. This book is full of paranormal twists and turns to hold your attention. It all starts after the murders of Lexi’s parents with horrible nightmares and seeing ghosts. Her friends try and help her, I liked the characters of Lexi (Alexander), Mia and Jake. Look forward to their next adventure and recommend if you enjoy the paranormal/supernatural. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you

    Story
    "Grabbed my attention from the start!"
    Would you listen to Sweet Nightmares again? Why?

    Sweet Nightmares grabbed my attention from the start. The horror elements in this book were tightly twined with suspense and a little romance too. I was immediately horrified by the story unfolding as well as chilled to the bone trying to figure out why it had happened. I immediately had a sense of foreboding that had me immediately engaged with this story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Alexandrea Cooper’s family was brutally murdered and somehow Alexandrea, aka Lexi, was intimately aware of how the murders took place even though she was asleep at the time. Unable to deal with what Lexi thought to be the truth had her shutting down and shutting out everyone who wanted to help. It was bad enough that she was carrying around guilt but Lexi was also being plagued by nightmares so horrific it made me a bit squeamish to listen to.

    At the end of her rope, Lexi finally confides in her cousin Mia about what has been happening and what Lexi believes to be true. Thank God Mia has an idea of what has been occurring and she helped Lexi to see the truth of the matter. The truth though did not set Lexi free as she was still plagued by the nightmares but in reality, they were not actually nightmares. Lexi was experiencing dream jumping, Freddy Kruger style, by a twisted and sick psycho who wanted Lexi all for himself. This stalker entered Lexi’s dreams and manipulated them using the blackest of magic.

    As the nightmares intensified, Lexi was guided by a paranormal spirit to help her learn more about her mother’s past and her heritage in order to combat the evil that had entered her life. With the help of her cousin and her high school sweetheart, Lexi was able to put the pieces together and figure out what she needed to do to end this living nightmare. Lexi was plunged into a race against the clock that pushed her to the ends of her limits and beyond.


    Have you listened to any of Courtney Parker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All I can say about this story was wow! I listened to the audio version of Sweet Nightmares and the narrator, Courtney Parker, was amazing! I felt that the characters, voices, and inflections with which she spoke were very realistic and I was so drawn into the story that I became unaware that it was being narrated. It felt as if I was listening to actual people discussing the story. The combination of the storyline and the Narrator made this an amazing experience for me.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing that did not work for me in this story was that I felt that the story was happening to young adults not adults closer to their thirties. The mannerisms, how the characters reacted and handled situations, were closer to what I would expect from much younger adults. Overall, Sweet Nightmares was a nightmarish tale that definitely had my creep factor on high! I highly recommend this story to readers who were fans of Nightmare on Elm Street, this story will resonate with you!
