When I dream of You by Rosa Sophia

When I Dream of You
by Rosa Sophia.
Audience/Genre: Adult, Contemporary, Romance.
Publication: September 17th 2014 by Createspace.
Nina Archer battles memories of a trauma that occurred twelve years ago... With plans to move to North Carolina, she hopes to separate herself from her mother, whose excessive drinking is becoming unbearable. Then suddenly, fate steps in to help her heal in a way she would never think possible. While running a race in Juno Beach, Nina finds herself next to a man whom she's immediately attracted to. Wes Ladner, the same man she dreamt about one year ago...

Wes is focused on his writing, and has no time for a woman. But the night before they met, he dreamt of Nina. Although they come from two very different worlds neither of them can deny the sparks that fly between them. As her time runs out to make a decision, Nina wonders if she's been given the chance to come to terms with her past, and accept a gift that some never receive - true love.

Reviewed by Kelly.

I hate writing negative reviews. I just didn’t like the book. I didn’t feel connected to the character or Wes. I couldn’t see them in my mind while I was reading. I don’t even think there was a description of them. It was as if someone was writing in monotone. It was dull and lifeless.

I didn’t understand her immediate connection and love to Wes. Why would she have it if she feels panicked around people especially men.

I did however remember my face scrunching up in disgust at the things that happened to both Nina and her mother. No one should have to go through that. But I really didn’t find her resolve at the end where she did. Nina talks about her therapist a few times and mentions that she hadn’t seen him in a while and he did something bad. Then later Nina discloses what that bad was. I didn’t get even mentioning that because it didn’t seem to have any relevance to the story other than to bring in something else depressing.
