In a long-term relationship which has given her little happiness, Michelle knows the time for her to make some changes is overdue. Deciding to leave a self-centered boyfriend behind is easy, but choosing what to do next will take some careful planning. Before moving somewhere else, Michelle is going to visit with her mother and think everything through. She takes a train to get back to her hometown, and it just happens to be February 28 when she heads out. Perhaps with the next day being a Leap Year’s Day, it will be the beginning of a better chapter in her life.
The first night Michelle goes to her compartment, a surprise is waiting for her. It seems a partygoer on the train mistakenly got into her room and fell asleep. Since he is not in the way, she lets him sleep but does watch him closely. Though he is gone the next morning, Michelle runs into Josh again later. With the trip lasting a few days, it gives the couple time to have long conversations and more, where they discover there is much to like.
If I am reading a book by S.L. Carpenter, then I know there will always be some hilarity sprinkled throughout the story. I could not keep the chuckles contained during several scenes, as the author had the characters making comments that perfectly fit the situation. Then there were the visuals I pictured in my mind, and more laughs erupted. Josh and Michelle have not been very lucky when it comes to relationships, so I enjoyed seeing them share some very genuine experiences with each other. A few of the interactions between Michelle and her mother were also openly frank and seemed believable. While much of Mr. Carpenter’s book is centered on amusement, there are numerous instances where heartfelt feelings are expressed with much honesty. When it comes to sexual encounters, Michelle and Josh know what they want and do not hold back, resulting in many scenes where fantasies are fulfilled and satisfaction is guaranteed. Though not a long story, CHASING DREAMS has all the right ingredients to make it delightfully entertaining.

This is a quick read, at least for me, about a woman in a horrible relationship who leaves her boyfriend while he's in the shower.
She goes back home for a little while to get her head together and while on the train there meets a guy.
She first meets him when she comes upon him sleeping, by mistake, in her sleeper.. There's a fling, a pretty hot fling and they both leave the train at the same town.
Turns out the guy went to the same school she did, and they were in the same class. Running into her on the train, then into her in his room was a dream come true for him, as we had, frankly, worshiped her from afar.
Now for the corrective bits. As an experienced copy-editor and a professionally trained proofreader, mistakes tend to jump out at me.
In the first chapter she reads her horoscope in the midst of leaving her boyfriend, and on the next page the passage is exactly the same, except she's calling her mother. Another thing is, in the first chapter she thinks upon her wasted two year relationship, then later in the beginning of the fling, muses about just getting out of a four year relationship.
Pretty good though, and true to Mr. Carpenter's talented pen, steamy as hell.
Michelle is stuck in a bad relationship, and doesn't know how to escape. She feels like she has wasted time with Keith because she didn't want to be lonely. When she finally hits her breaking point, she decides to leave and grab her dream job in the process. What she doesn't expect is to fall in love on her way.
