First Impression: Nice clean cover, and interesting premise about growing up and the choices we make.
Characters: Keeghan and Will are a married couple in the present time, and this first installment covers their meet-cute towards the end. Natasha and Stewart were young people from different worlds, who fell in love long ago. I found these characters from the past spoke true to their time, and reacted appropriately.
What I Liked: I’m drawn into stories of love worth fighting for and breaking down walls of normalcy. I appreciated all the elements that tied together, and would read the next installment.
Deal Benders: “Natasha’s Dream” contained a few sex scenes that don’t jive with the genre. These scenes never seem to add to the story anyway, in my opinion. Are people in love only after they have sex? Let’s keep the ‘romance’ books where they belong over there in the corner. I also felt there was a bit of rushing at the end of the story but no resolution with Keeghan and Will’s timeline. I understand sequels carry on stories, but there needs to be an even break off point.
Overall Rating: I give this book 3 stars because I do like it overall. I would have to see if some of the kinks are worked out in the next installment to give more stars.
