Review

5 Stars from Lisa McCombs at Readers Favorite Book Reviews:

I haven't enjoyed such a read in a long while. Romance novels are so often wound around similar plots and flowery vocabulary, but "Dream Kisses" is a pleasant piece of pastry on a rainy day. It is that forbidden square of chocolate that gives hope to the hopeful romantic. Verna Clay has woven the perfect amount of words into the perfect start to her new series. The plot is believable and a lovely balance of romance and reality. Not an avid romance fanatic myself, I was pleasantly surprised to be irresistibly pulled into the story and am anxious to read more about the characters introduced in this first installment. I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon with Sarah and Sage.

From the Author

For some time I had wanted to write a funny, contemporary western, and when the words "Dream Kisses" popped into my mind, I knew I had the title for my book. And, as usual, while writing the tale, secondary characters kept begging to have their stories put on paper, too. I have titled this series Romance on the Ranch with the order of the books being: Dream Kisses; Honey Kisses; Baby Kisses; Candy Kisses; and Christmas Kisses.

Sarah a romance writer has signed up to stay on a ranch for research purposes for her book. When she arrives she realises that the ranch owner is the cover model she met at a photo shoot. At that meeting there had been an embarrassing incident in a coffe shop with him. That incident had left her with a poor impression of him, so she does not feel that she can stay. But having sprained her ankle after her hire car broke down on the journey to the ranch she is stuck.
This is a pleasant enough read. The storyline is okay. The characters are not very well developed which was a disappointment. Sarah the heroine seemd extremely unworldly for a woman of almost forty years old, she certainly had an awful lot of issues about herself, and was not confident at all. Sage the hero was a much more rounded character. I felt the story meandered off into other areas away from the two protangonists too often. The incident that so upset Sarah in the beginning of the story leaving her angry at Sage, was not that big of a deal, and Sarah's reaction was a bit OTT and not entirely believeable. The supporting characters were one dimentional, some of the scenes in this story were funny while others were a bit twee. This is a contemporary story, but it feels more like a period romance. I like it when a relationship builds gradually in a story, but it was a bit too slow here for my liking, although I did get that it was because the heroine had so many hang-ups. Not a bad read. But this has not inspired me enough to check out the other book available in this series.

I got a little confused by the the main female character's personality. I felt that what attracted the hunk to her in the first place was her independence and self-secured persona. But that all seemed to leave her once there was an attraction between them. I felt she became very dependent acting with her panic attack and jealousy issues. Found it hard to like her at that point.

•••I listened to the Audible Audio Edition of this book•••

The narrator was incredibly expressive and brought the story to life with all of the myriad emotions from each and every character! It was a really fun listen and I ended up listening to it all in one day! I just couldn't stop :) I will definitely read (or listen to) more books by this author and I will definitely be seeing what else this narrator has done so I can listen to her again :)

This series must be listened to (or read) in order. This is the first book. I can't wait to listen to (or read) Honey Kisses!

Mims is a famous romance novelist who is kind of sour on love. She believes in it for her characters... Just not a plain Jane like herself. Meeting the cover model Sage from her books sends her info a bit of a tailspin. Her editor and his joke on her just was not amusing! Now she can't write. Needing to finish her book, she books six long weeks at a dude ranch hoping to find real-life inspiration and insight into her modern chicklit western romance. Too bad Fate is conspiring against her! Will she make it to the ranch? Will she get her book written on time? Will she survive the lack of civilization?

Sage hates being a sex symbol. Too bad it pays the bills. What can he do? He has to make a living somehow to keep his ranch and all the land. How did Mims end up on his ranch as a dude? Is someone playing a joke on them? All he knows is that she intrigues him. Will they get along? Or will he lose a paying guest and a cover model job in one fell swoop? Will he win her over? Or send running back to the city?

***This series is suitable for adult listeners (or readers) who enjoy modern romance with chicklit overtones in a western setting filled with fun and second chances while learning to love again and move past tragedies of the past :)

A nice charming tale brought to life by the wonderful vocal talents of Wendy Rich Stetson. She’s really good and has an interesting array of character vocalizations that you’ll like to hear on the audible version.

You’ll like the characters of Sage, the hot gorgeous cowboy cover model and Sara the writer who inadvertently ends up in his world. They first meet when Sage is hired to be the male cover model of Sarah’s latest novel, but things don’t go to well and by the time they meet up again well…you’ll enjoy the outcome. You’ll like the other supporting characters like Sage’s daughter Julie and the ranch hands that work for Sage and some of the really nice guest that show up unexpectedly and the not so nice ones you won't like because they'll be a pain in anybody’s universe.

It had a lot of humorous moments and some unusual ones and a whole lot of quirky guests. So, if you like books about authors and cowboys you’ll this tale of an unlikely match that just might be a very good match. So pick up a copy and enjoy the audible version or the e-book, and enjoy.

I almost finished this book and gave up right before the end. The hero in the story is described as a grogeous piece of man meat that I'd take a bite out of any day. Unfortunately, the heroine is whiny, bitchy, irritating and childish. She overreacts about EVERYTHING. Something as simple as being kissed on her palm has her storming out of a coffee shop and holding it against the sexy cowboy as if he tossed her on the table and ravished her while everyone watched when any single woman in her right mind with probably wish he HAD tossed them on the table instead of a light peck on the hand.
I continued reading because I did enjoy the story for the most part and had hoped that the relationship would get steamy and she would sort out her 'problems'. Well, when it comes to the moment in the book every hot blooded woman waits for....nothing...there is some grabing and then it's like watching a movie and the scene fades to black. That's when I finally turned off my Kindle and gave up.
