I had very hard time reading this book. I've been a fan of the authors and have devoured the other books in the series but this one was disappointing. The repetition was annoying. At time I felt things were discussed over and over to increase the word count. Then the editing came into play - Luke gets out a dish that Cassie made, thinks she's such a good cook and then a paragraph later he's throwing away the congealed gravy and mashed potatoes from his frozen tv dinner. Then people are arriving at 9:00 for a party, they're talking about barbeque and it's 9:00 am. And there's a scene where Cassie still isn't comfortable with Luke but gets into bed naked and he wears a towel to bed. Honestly there were lots of times I went back to re-read a paragraph thinking I must have overlooked some details. I did enjoy seeing what was happening with the other couples.
Then the paranormal come into play. Cassie does a celestial visit and watches Luke sleep, then she talks and communicates to the animals and then the horse paints and communicates to Cassie what colors to put on the paint brush and this painting is how they figure out how badly the horse was abused. Then her brother reads minds or has some ability. Seriously at this point I had to force myself to finish the book.
It took me a few weeks to write this review. I wasn't sure exactly how to say what I wanted without seeming to slam this well written, well thought out book. Masters is a favorite author of mine. I love her storytelling talents and the way her characters seem so real, however I was never a huge fan of Luke and Cassie's. I knew their story would be different, if no other reason than Cassie's beliefs. As a matter of fact, Nobody's Dream sat on my tablet for over a year before I finally cracked the cover, i.e., opened it on the Kindle App.
I will openly admit, I shouldn't have waited. Although not like the other books in the series, this story unfolds as it should for these two characters. Luke and Cassie are perfect for each other; Doubts, Fears, Strenths, Heart, Desire, Weaknesses, Need, and Bravery. They match and counter each other in a most agreeable way. You won't get much in the way of the club scene with these two, but again that is perfect for them as neither ever seemed to be the club type to me, especially Cassie. Luke is a quiet, deeply contained Dom. Cassie is so afraid of sex, men, and people in general that she doesn't know what she is, or wants. She does find a safe haven in Luke's home to at least begin to question herself and her desires and needs.
Now for why I felt I had to give the lower rating:
Cassie is out there...way out there, which is fine, but some of the scenes cross goofy and go right into bizarre. I total understood her talking to her Alpacas as if they were human, and feel as if she could understand them in return. Anyone who has pets can relate. Anyone who has a pet or pets see them through a traumatic situation will completely understand this relationship between Cassie and her Alpacas. What I had a serious issue with was having a horse paint, and other scenes that, for me, detracted from the story. Whether this is something that Masters researched or was put in for comic relief to balance the very disturbing past of all: Luke, Cassie, and the horse, it completely had the screech of an old vinyl record being stopped in the middle of a song for me. The other reason for the lower than normal score is because the book is repetitive. It is needed, but even needed it made the read somewhat tedious and drawn out.
Having said that, there are many reasons for you to read this book. Luke and Cassie are great together. We get updates and huge surprises from our favorites; Adam and Karla, Marc and Angelina, and my personal favorites Damian and Savannah, and even Grant. The story needed to be told, and even with the bizarre scene or two and the repeats, I still highly recommend the read and the series as a whole.
