Blair, a curvaceous and beautiful young woman awakens from a coma with memories of a beautiful friendship with a man named Tyler. These memories are so vivid and realistic; she becomes convinced that he actually exists outside of her dream world. When she chances on discovering who he is, she becomes committed to seeing him in person. Unfortunately, Tyler is still in a coma. Blair makes contact with his cousin Regan in hopes that she can convince him to allow her to see Tyler in person. Blair’s story is so bizarre; it takes a lot to convince Regan that she is telling the truth. Tyler helps her by providing her with information that only the two cousins would know about. Blair’s relationship with Regan is not easy, and often leaves her feeling confused and conscience-stricken. As time passes, their lives become more intertwined and complicated. Blair has to come to terms with why fate brought her into the lives of both men.
I absolutely loved reading “Dreams of Fate!” The author presented an incredibly unique plot with lots of surprising twists and turns. She does an amazing job of bringing the protagonists and supporting characters to life. The settings are described in vivid detail, especially those that take place in the dreamscape.
She also switches back and forth between the character’s perspectives so that we get a great deal of insight into what makes them tick. Shoar does a fantastic job of creating sexual tension, and then follows up with some explosive erotic scenes. These scenes are some of the best that I have ever read, and I love that they are sensual, and not just sexual. When including information about past relationships, she touches on emotional abuse, and I feel that there are a lot of readers who will find themselves relating even more to the main character. The supporting characters provide fun interaction into this story and their stories make this novel even more fun to read.
I would love to read more books by Skylar Shoar and I hope that I can revisit with some of the characters from this story, in future novels.
