Blurb: There is a place in all of us where our deepest secrets lie in wait for their moment to surface, and surface they will.
After living through a real live nightmare, Olivia wants nothing but to forget. Forget and move on. But how do you forget something that has stained your soul and forces you to lie to your loved ones? Even if your intentions are to spare them the horrors of the truth?
Luke knows Olivia is not as recovered as she would have him believe. He can see the pain she tries to keep hidden behind her eyes, and knows she has not told him everything. But how do you save someone who won’t let you in? Where shame holds Olivia captive, Luke suffers through the guilt of not protecting the one person he loves more than anything.
Can two people who have suffered so dearly find a way to come together or will they risk the dreams they have placed in each other’s hearts? Can love find a way where forgiveness cannot?
Review (Laura H.)
About the Writing: If you haven't read Pretty Little Lies series, you really don't know what you are missing. The truth is, although I loved Pretty Little Lies Book One and I have a passionate obsession with Luke, (Luke and Laura Forever) the author wrote a very polished sequel. You immediately take noticed that the author grew tremendously as a writer and was able to convey emotions without being too detailed of the surroundings or being overly in depth. She was able to give the reader just enough to allow them to have their own imagination. So for that Kudos to Jennifer Miller.
About Pretty Little Dreams: I was fortunate to receive a copy of Pretty Little Dreams for an honest review. Olivia is enduring what most women fear most, the unknown. She is plagued with the what ifs and disparity of her situation. Unfortunately, the unknown has left Olivia trying to avoid her plaguing questions and uncertainties. She doesn't know if she was in fact violated more than emotionally and mentally, but sexually. It is a topic that the author was able to convey the inner anger, resentment, and overall fear. Olivia is pushing Luke away and he grasping at anything to hold on to emotional roller coaster. I was pleasantly surprised with how well put together the book was and honestly give it 5 stars. It was truly a great read.
About the Author: Author Jennifer Miller was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, but now calls Arizona home. Jennifer’s love of reading began when she was a small child, and only continued to grow as she entered adulthood. Ever since winning a writing contest at the young age of nine, when she wrote a book about a girl with a pet unicorn, she’s dreamed of writing a book of her own.
Quickly learning that dreams don’t just fall into your lap, she knew she had to chase them herself and not be afraid to dream a little bigger. Most importantly, she is a wife and mother, and is very lucky to have a family that loves and supports her in all things. She also has an unhealthy addiction to handbags and chocolate covered strawberries, neither of which she cares to change.
