Me and reality television don’t mix. I’m really more of a History or MovieMax kind of gal. Little did I know what I was missing until the Dream Girl show showed me the hilarity, the seriousness and the drama that lurks behind the camera lens… Is this Reality TV 101? I sure hope so because it is sarcastic, funny, back-stabbing and honest in a way that makes me view the whole genre with a different perspective…
Chloe is the full-on heroine of this laugh-out loud yet, at the same time, emotional romance. And it is a romance despite the false trappings of the love reality show they find themselves embroiled in. Dominic is a swoony hero – handsome, successful and loyal to a fault. Well, it’s a good fault to have but it does him no favors when he is dragged into the rose-filled world of matchmaking love. They’re in it for different reasons and while love may not have been their end goal, it is dogging their every step.
Sparks fly from the start and Chloe is hilarious with a sarcastic wit that captures Dominic (and my) attention right away. Their chemistry heats up through one (mis-)adventure after another as they criss-cross the globe with a show that is helping and hindering them at every turn. Strong characters are not limited to just Chloe and Dominic as the show’s contestants and creators are memorable in their own sometimes friendly (sometimes really not!) ways. There is high drama of all kinds that make me laugh and make me wonder too. There are real people involved, after all, and not all is glitz and glamour and fluffy frivolity. Deviousness runs rampant and the show is highly entertaining, on and off the set!
Top ten favourite quote this year:
“I just hope you’re not going to be a total tool box. I don’t want to be dealing with the entire inventory of the Craftsman line at my local Kmart.”
Another great read by this author, my favourite (so far)!
**I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.
I freaking loved Chloe! She's intelligent, strong, witty, feisty, and beautiful both inside and out. So what if she has a weakness for Dominic and can be a tad hotheaded at times. I couldn't help but root for her and laugh at her antics along the way. Chloe just made everything interesting. And the friendships she made will be lasting and the enemies long forgotten when it's over.
I had hoped for more time between Chloe and Dominic. Their chemistry and passion were electrifying. You could sense something more between them the very moment that they met. The teasing and sparring was spot on and helped to fuel their desire. And the sex was hot!!!
I have read and enjoyed many of Alexis Alvarezs books to date. Most characters are fun and quirky, dominant and sexy and the stories are funny and diverse.
In Dream Girl, I liked the concept of the plot and I really enjoyed the sense of humour and the banter between Dominic and a Chloe from the very beginning and was glad that it continued through the whole book.
The only downside for me was with Chloe's behaviour sometimes. I got a bit frustrated with her at times. But overall, I did enjoy the book and had many laughs at the antics and some of the scenes. I got a kick out of most of the support characters as well.
I voluntarily reviewed this advanced reader copy and I have not been compensated in any way.
Chloe, the protagonist, is hilarious and kind. She's the kind of character you wish was real so you could be best friends with her. I mean seriously: I love Chloe! She's funny and fun, and she's real and original. Definitely not a cookie-cutter character.
And Dominic. Well. He's all the things a male lead in a romance novel needs to be! Sexy, smart, charming, sexy. Wait. I already said "sexy." Well, I'll say it again! He's sexy and delicious!
Additionally, the secondary characters, like Chloe's sister and best friend and all the girls she meets on the dating show, are well developed and hilarious.
The plot is funny and has enough twists to keep you reading right through to the end. This is one of those books where I'm torn between wanting to read until I'm done but also wanting to slow down so I can enjoy it longer. It's so good!
I definitely recommend this book.

This book is a fun and witty take on the TV series “The Bachelorette”. Alexis Alvarez kept me laughing from start to finish.Read more
