Publisher's Summary

Author's note: This is the first book in a two-part series (Not Dreaming of You, Always Dreaming of You).

Loser? Or Lunatic?

Kiki Villanueva holds a master's degree from UCLA, is the best second grade teacher ever, and believes she had a psychic dream when she was 13 in which she was given a list of her future husband's attributes. Children are her life, and Kiki has good reason to think she may not have any if she doesn't marry soon. Since typical dating methods haven't been working out, she decides that when she goes back to L.A. for the summer, she'll start using the list to sort through potential candidates.

When jaded political journalist Mark Bennett confesses to his doctor he no longer finds women or anything else exciting, Dr. Chuck is worried he's depressed and suggests a change of pace. Mark agrees to write a fluff piece for a magazine about people who join high-priced dating services. (His premise is: Losers or Lunatics?) The dating service introduces him to Kiki, and he's charmed by her open, passionate nature, not to mention her big, brown do me eyes, though she definitely belongs in the lunatic category with that psychic stuff. Mark is a confirmed bachelor from a family where no one says the L-word. However, while accompanying warm, sexy Kiki on her match-making service dates for his story, he soon wonders why he's literally driving her to the arms of other men. If he could only get her to forget her list, and everything he said when they first met - oh, and the fact that he's been a complete jackass. But Kiki's not about to waste time on an emotionally challenged cynic who only wants to play, and is definitely not on her list, even if he is handsome, and funny, and sexy. Uh-oh!

For Chris's love story, and what happens to Kiki and Mark afterward, be sure to listen to Always Dreaming of You, the sequel to Not Dreaming of You.

A very funny and tender love story. Kiki is full of life and love ans is everything that Mark it's not...but actually they are a match. I've really enjoyed the Audiobook, you feel as if you are inside the story, feeling the same that they feel.

Great read for HEA lovers

What made the experience of listening to Not Dreaming of You the most enjoyable?

It added to the enjoyment to hear the correct inflections given to thoughts and spoken words. She was able to show emotions very accurately so that the story could flow more smoothly.

Any additional comments?

This was a good romance read where the steamy scenes add to the story without becoming the main point of the story
