 About DREAM OF YOU:
Abby Erickson isn't looking for a one-night stand, a relationship, or anything that involves any one-on-one time, but when she witnesses a shocking crime, she's thrust into the hands of the sexiest man she's ever seen - Colton Anders. His job is to protect her, but with every look, every touch, and every simmering kiss, she's in danger of not only losing her life but her heart also.

Colton leaned toward me with his gaze locked onto mine. “I didn’t know you in high school, but I knew of you.”
“You did? I can’t imagine it was anything interesting. I was boring as—”
“I never got the impression you were boring,” he interrupted, and goodness, I could fall into those eyes and never come back out. So cheesy sounding, and if I saw it in one of my author’s books, I’d redline the hell out of that, but now I got it. It was possible. “I just thought you were this pretty girl who sat two seats behind me in history class and was shy.”
Several things occurred to me at once. He remembered that we shared history class together? Holy crap on a cracker. And he thought I’d been pretty? I was sure I probably weighed twenty pounds more back then and I wore these godawful glasses that were so trendy nowadays.
Colton was a flirt.
“Looking back, I wish I had the balls to talk to you then.” He returned his attention to his crepe while my jaw hit the table. “But you were with Kevin and…yeah, that’s not my style, you know?” He glanced in my direction. “You’re going to eat the crepes, right?”
“Yeah,” I murmured, cutting into one side. I forced myself to eat a bite, and it was like heaven just orgasmed in my mouth. Wow. That was inappropriate. I resisted a giggle. “What about you? You’ve been a cop this whole time?”
“Yep. It’s what I always wanted to do. Started off as a deputy, then became a detective for the county before transferring to the city. I love working as a detective, but with my hours all over the place, Reece, my brother, has pretty much straight up adopted my dog. She doesn’t even stay at my house anymore.” He finished off the second crepe with an impressive quickness and then settled back against the chair, stretching out his long legs. “Almost got married.”
Thank God I had just swallowed a piece of crepe because there was a good chance I would’ve choked. “Almost?”
“Was engaged.” He grinned, and I felt my tummy dip in response. “Nicole and I were together for…hell.” He glanced up at the ceiling, pursing his lips. “For about six years.”
Holy crap, six years? That was a long time. I wondered if she was the woman I’d seen him with at the movies that one time, but that was like, maybe a year ago.
“Got all the way down to planning the wedding date when we came to the realization that we wanted different things in life.”

My Review:  Being a huge all things Jennifer L. Armentrout fan, I was beyond excited to get my hands on Dream of You, especially since it is part of her Wait for You series, which happens to also be one of my favorites.  Dream of You is Colton and Abby's story.  Colton is Reece's brother, Reece being the main character in Fall With You, which was also awesome by the way.  Each of the books in the series can be read as standalones, but all are companion novels and you get to see a glimpse of the other characters in the series in the books as well, which is something that I really love.  

While Dream of You is a novella, it is excellently written and when you read it, though it is short, it leaves you completely satisfied.....and by that I mean, it isn't a McDonalds Drive-through kind of meal, but a sit-down steak dinner at Outback kind of meal with drinks, desert and everything in between.  Definitely the filet mignon on this fabulous entree is Colton who is all kind of hot, sexy, sweet, and sinful all wrapped up in one.  I loved him and I loved the way he was with Abby.  Abby is the kind of girl I can identify with, having the "chub-rub" (you'll understand when you read the book) thing going on as well (insert smile here).  The romance was awesome in classic JLA style, as was the entire story.  Dream of You is an outstanding romance that JLA fans, as well as all contemporary romance fans will definitely want to pick up.
