Everyone loves Jack Holland, but Emmaline Neal needs him. Her ex-fiancé is getting married in Malibu and, obviously, she can’t go to the wedding alone. In Manningsport, New York, tall, blond and gorgeous Jack Holland is practically a cottage industry when it comes to rescuing desperate women. He knows the drill, Em figures, so he won’t get the wrong idea.
What Jack needs is an excuse to leave town. Ever since rescuing four teenagers from a car wreck, he’s been hailed as a hero and the attention is making him itchy, especially since his too-pretty ex-wife is back, angling for a reunion. He’s always liked Emmaline. She needs a weekend date? No problem.
So when they wind up in bed together, Em chalks it up to red wine and chocolate cake, just one impulsive night not to be repeated. But Jack’s pushing for more, and if she lets down her guard, either she’ll get her heart crushed again, or discover that Jack’s worth more than just dreaming about.
Don’t you just hate it when your real life intrudes on your precious reading time? Well I got to admit I wish the kids could have made their dinner when I was reading In Your Dreams cause I just did not want to put this book down. This story made me laugh, it made me cry and it totally got me out of my reading slump.
Emmaline is one of those characters that is just normal and relatable. I just get her and I like her because she sounds like someone I would be friends with in real life. Then we have Jack who in one word is awesome. He may look perfect but he has issues that just endear him to me even more.
In Your Dreams is the fourth book in the Blue Heron series. Yes, this book can easily be read as a standalone. Unfortunately as soon as you finish it you will be jumping through hoops to pick up the first three books in the series. Ms. Higgins is a delightfully entertaining author and I look forward to reading whatever she has coming out next!
