Following on the heels of Illusion, indie sensation and New York Times best-selling author J.S. Cooper brings us the second novel in the Swept Away series, a trilogy of dark and sexy romances about a woman marooned on an island with a man who may be her captor.

Book Description

Ever since the death of her parents at the age of 17, Cassie has been dreaming about a dark haired man. He always comes to her in times of trouble to comfort her and help her through the toughest of days. But now after the devastating break up with her boyfriend, Cassie struggles with separating reality from her dreams.

During a trip to her family beach house, her dream man becomes her lover and Cassie finds herself longing for this man to be in her life. But trying to find out the truth about him leaves her questioning her very existence and sanity.

She is convinced her dream man is real and connected to a string of macabre murders over the last 20 years. Fearing for her life, Cassie prays she is right about him and that he can save her before it is too late.

Note from author: WARNING : This book has an episode of sexual abuse. There are 2 attempted rape scenes as well as a depraved serial killer.

About the Author

I love everything Paranormal, especially Vampires and after seeing the TV show Moonlight, I was inspired to write my first novel "The Man of my Dreams." I am a big fan of Alex O'loughlin who was the lead on Moonlight and also love the concept behind Dexter, so my hero is kind of Mick St John meets Dexter! Although my books are a work of fiction, there is an element of realism too as a lot of material comes from my own life. Quite a few of my characters are based on real life people too.

I am now a stay at home mum of 4 but write every chance I get, whenever the kids let me! My passion is and always has been writing. Book 2 "Be Careful What You Wish For" and the third book in the series "The Chosen One" are both now available as well.

These characters are very close to my heart and I hope you will come to love them as much as I have.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but fizzled at the end September 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Decided to try this author/story when it was available as a free download. I would have rated it as 4 stars up until the end. Although I agree with another reviewer that the writing was a bit amateurish/fan fiction-ish (and the formatting errors in my copy took away from smooth reading flow), I was quickly drawn in by the story, as well as the twist on the traditional vampire lore. Unfortunately, there were too many critical points either glossed over (um, the "gift"?) or ignored, especially at the end, which dropped my rating to 3 stars.

I realize that the author contemplated a sequel (thus, the cliffhanger) but still, the end scene seemed rushed, poorly thought out, and defied the normal suspension of disbelief for fiction. Likeable enough as a free read but given the plethora of vampire fiction, not enough to pay to see if this particular author's writing/story gets any better.

ADDED 09-09-2012: To clarify, I don't generally mind a cliffhanger in preparation of the next book (setting the stage, if you will), but it bothers me as a reader when not properly done and/or it adversely affects the current book. Yes, books in a series are generally linked together in some way or have a common arc, but the discrete plot/arc of each book usually should be resolved by the end (sort of like finishing the framework of a house before moving on to the sheetrock, plumbing, etc).

The way this book ended, the "cliffhanger" was for this story (which I took as how/why Cassie and and her dream man get together), not for the next (which, based on the blurb, appears to be how their relationship develops within an expanded storyline).

2.0 out of 5 stars Man of My Dreams February 22, 2012
By Jex
Format:Kindle Edition
The Man of My Dreams follows Cassie, a girl that dreams of her savior, or she thinks she's dreaming. It turns out that what she thinks are dreams may be more real then they seem.

In all honesty, it's a bit difficult for me to lay out a summary of this novel as there are so many things the story bounces between as you're reading. One minute Cassie is having sexy dreams and the next minute a serial killer is planning his next move. For a good portion of the book I didn't truly understand how the two seperate stories fit together. It's almost as if the author got so caught up in their attempt to surprise the reader that they may have left a little too much out to begin with.

Besides the jumpyness of the storyline, there seemed to be a lot of missing time in between chapters. One chapter would end and the next one would pick up in a completely different spot that didn't always make sense right away. I understand the need to jump when the story was breaking to a different narrator, as some chapters did, but I felt there was a void between some chapters that followed the same portion of the storyline.

My biggest qualm with this novel was the fact that it didn't seem to have a lot of depth. The characters were a bit shallow, the scenes were a bit vague, and I was left with an overall feeling of wanting more. The storyline itself wasn't bad. I feel it had a lot of potential going into the book. However, the delivery just didn't fulfill me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of The Man of my Dreams April 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First off, I would like to say that I am not usually a big fan of books that have rape and molestation in them. I will say that this book does not dwell on the subject and the scenes are brief. On to a better note, I love the concept of a hero vampire. I’m not sure how I would take to having someone enter my dreams and having it feel so real. I found that I feel for Cassie and all the struggles she goes through. The uncertainty and questioning her sanity is not an easy thing to cope with.

3.0 out of 5 stars Premise and plot of the story is amazing January 19, 2013
By Wanda
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The premise and the plot of the story is amazing.
I liked Cassie's story but had a real problem with the circumstances regarding rape etc
It seemed, to me, as if the rape scenes' horific as they were, were also told to be sensual.
This is a private pet peeve of mine and the reason I am giving this book less stars than it should be getting.
Some editing issues is present but that is something that can be fixed.
All in all, this is a good romance. If I did not have the prejudices I have, I am sure I would have rated it higher.
But dont take my word for it.
Read it and decide for yourself.

This book was pretty good. It was a different take on a fantasy romance.
This book was definitely a quick and enjoyable read. Nothing like a beautiful, dangerous stranger..Who is suppose to be a monster, but yet he uses his monster tendency for good. Saving the world one rapes, criminal at a time.

The romance between Cassie and the this beautiful stranger is amazing, and mysterious and leaves you questioning..

This book was a bit of a page turner. However there is a Cliffhanger.. You must continue to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dream Man September 11, 2012
By Kadie
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book as a gift for an honest review ~waAr~

I really enjoyed this book. Cassie is a likeable character, altho things never seem to go right for her, she holds it together and is not some simpering, crying fool that most portray as the normal "damsel in distress" altho i would enjoy more clarification on when shes talking to herself or her "dream man"

it was a very interesting read, and i can not wait to read book 2.

More About the Author

A survivor of sexual abuse, I have recently written the true account of my childhood, titled: Life After Hell: Surviving Sexual Abuse. I have tried to convey what happened to me as well as my journey to finally getting justice.

A lot of my own experiences have gone into my fictional works, especially my first book The Man of My Dreams. I created a vigilante vampire that rescues women and children from rapists and child molesters......

I've loved Vampires and the paranormal ever since I can remember and always envisaged myself writing a book or two on the subject! I have written 5 books in The Dream Series so far: The Man of my Dreams, Be Careful What You Wish For, The Chosen One, Succubus: An Erotic Companion and A Match Made in Hell. All Paranormal Romance novels with Vampires(of course) as well as a bit of blood and gore thrown in and the 4th one is slightly on the erotic side! These characters are very close to my heart and I hope you will come to love them as much as I have.

I've also written my first Contemporary Romance trilogy which will be released in July 2014. The "Someone to Love Me" series will consist of 3 novellas: Undeserving, Unforgiving and Understanding. I hope you enjoy them.

I recently published a short story (Why Won't Someone Help Me?) about my health issues and the trouble with getting diagnosed or treated for invisible illnesses.
