Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance
Emmaline Neal needs a date. Just a date—someone to help her get through her ex-fiancé's wedding without losing her mind. But pickings are slim in Manningsport, New York, population 715. In fact, there's really only one option: local heartthrob Jack Holland. Everyone loves Jack, and he won't get the wrong idea…. After all, Jack Holland would never actually be interested in a woman like Em. Especially not with his beautiful ex-wife creeping around, angling to reunite ever since he rescued a group of teens and became a local hero.
But when the wedding festivities take an unexpectedly passionate turn, Em figures it was just one crazy night. Jack is too gorgeous, too popular, to ever end up with her. So why is she the one he can talk to about his deep, dark feelings? If Em is going to get her dream man, she'll have to start by believing in him…
What I Thought…
• One of the reasons why I love Kristan Higgins so much is that she always gives me so many feels, and In Your Dreams was no exception. There was so much going on with Jack and Emmaline and they were so perfect together, yet not perfect and I just couldn’t stop reading!
• Emmaline is added to my already long list of Higgins’ heroines that I want to be BFF’s with. She’s similar to me in a lot of ways, but different too.
• I’ve been looking forward to Jack’s story for awhile now and he was just as good as I expected. He’s been through a crap marriage and suffers from PTSD over a rescue that went wrong but also went right. I thought Higgin’s did a fantastic job with this aspect of the story.
• Emmaline and Jack both have crappy ex’s. Emmaline’s ex changed a lot and as he changed so did his feelings which sucked for Emmaline at the time, but she was much better off for it. Jack’s ex was despicable and leads me to my only complaint about the book. She was redeemed too quickly for me. She was a thorn in Jack’s side as well as immature and bratty.
• Watching Jack and Emmaline come together gave me so many feels. There was tension and a whole lot of sweet.
Overall Higgins’ does it again and writes a swoon worthy contemporary romance that you won’t want to miss.
