6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Charly T. Anchor VINE VOICE on September 7, 2009
Format: Paperback
Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 7/10

PROS:
- Lovely depiction of the gentle, patient seduction of a skittish guy who doesn't WANT to connect with anyone else.
- All of the sex is graphic and hot. The first encounter is slow and nervous and timid and delicious. And each sex scene is a little more involved or goes a little further than the one before.
- Noble is a unique character. He does and says that are very much off the beaten path. When he first appears, he's a little on the creepy stalker side, to tell the truth, but he's refreshingly different from most characters I read about.

CONS:
- Repetitive phrases that after a while start to get a little annoying. Tolliver's "knees turn to water," for instance, pretty often. And the words used to describe Noble are strange: he's depicted throughout the book as being "catlike"--he "purrs," his hair is a "mane," his eyes are "leonine" (that one's used numerous times, and because it's an unusual word, it stands out), etc.
- Some disjointed moments in conversation that are a little disorienting. There aren't ENTIRE conversations like this, but occasionally a character will say something like, "Promise you won't--" and then another character breaks in with, "I won't." And in a few cases, the book never explains exactly what they're talking about.
- Secondary character who has the hots for one of the main guys and is thus kind of sad to read about.

Overall comments: This is a pretty good book; it's got some interesting characters and an unusual element to the storyline. The sex is quite good, so if you're into that, you'll probably like this book--and anything else written by Okati, really, because I've found her to be fairly consistent in writing hot sex scenes.

Format: Kindle Edition
Tolliver is a man that lives a life ruled by routine and little outside of it catches his attention or pierces his narrow focus of taking care of his sister Sarah and the family store - Old Curiosity. However, somehow upon meeting Noble, his life seems to spin out of his tight control - suddenly he is discovering that men, especially Noble, are incredibly arousing; his sister is playing matchmaker and then resenting the results and his reliable storefront neighbor is suddenly acting strange around Tolliver. What in the world is his life coming to and how can Tolliver jam it all back into its proper place?

Noble is a wandering man and he can see into people and what he sees in Tolliver is a universe unexplored that not even Tolliver knows is there. Now, the challenge is to convince Tolliver that what Noble sees is real and that the attraction Tolliver feels for him is not only returned but acceptable. However, Tolliver proves to be more stubborn that anyone ever counted on and it just might break Noble's heart in the process...

Will Tolliver ever see beyond his responsibility to Sarah to ever carve a life for himself? And will Noble be a part of it at the end of it all?

Lovers, Dreamers, and Me is a true Willa Okati romance - it's full of erotic encounters, angst, emotion and romance. Tolliver is as endearing as he is maddening with his narrow focus, refusal to meet life head on and deal with the changing reality of his life. Noble is mysterious, and rather irritating, with his constant assurances of seeing the desired outcome, however, when his secrets are revealed and Noble turns out to be as vulnerable as the next man - it really brings him to life in a spectacular way.

While at first this book was wonderful, the end ruined it for me. The reveal that Noble was not only married, but lost his family in a tragic accident, made it seem like his affection for Tolliver is exactly what Tolliver suspects, a desire for a ready-made family. Well-written, but I can guarantee I won't read this again, as it leaves a very bad taste in my mouth (and head).
