Initially, in a Prologue to "Reverie Girl," we spend a few pages in Lana’s mind reliving the final moments at the Vienna airport from "Magnetic Reverie," where Lana and Claire first meet. The first half of Reverie Girl puts the reader in Claire’s mind. We move between her life before Lana, her childhood and her discovery that she was attracted to girls, and again takes us back to the beginning when the two first meet at the Vienna airport. As we see the events of "Magnetic Reverie" through Claire’s eyes and emotions comingled with her background, the sense of what is real and what is dream returns, because much of what seemed to be a dream in "Magnetic Reverie" seems as real through Claire’s eyes in Part 1 of "Reverie Girl."
In the second part of "Reverie Girl," we see events through Lana’s eyes as she leaves her home in the U.S. and travels to Slovenia ostensibly to spend Christmas with her family, but really to reestablish her relationship with Claire – a relationship that may have been real or may have been the substance of Lana’s dreams. She accidentally meets Claire’s brother, David, whom she clearly remembers, but he remembers only speaking with her by Skype, never actually meeting her. Dream…reality…it’s still a mystery. She learns through David that Claire is uninterested in seeing her again, but over time, Lana convinces Claire to meet with her. They finally find a way back into each other’s arms, but Lana has a falling-out with her mother over her sexual orientation.
The book ends with Lana’s husband, Greg, planning to visit her in Slovenia, but with Lana writing him out of her life and committing instead to remain with Claire. In a final personal note to the reader, Lana tries to explain the dream-reality enigma, but for me, at least, her explanation reopened the door that blurred the boundary between dream and real, so that I was left with a haunting sense that I had experienced something beyond dream or reality – something I would never forget.
Then she meets Claire, a bright, healthy, beautiful teacher who befriends her and opens her mind and heart to a whole new meaning of love. "I will wait for you to the end of my life," she tells Lana. This catches Lana off-guard. She's getting married and has no feelings for another, especially a woman.
Developments change for Lana as she finds herself drawn to Claire. The two develop a friendship which quickly evolves into something much more. Lana soon becomes confused about her feelings for Claire, as well as her husband, Greg. After what seems a lifetime, Lana makes a decision that will make or break relationships with family, friends, her husband....and Claire.
This is a touching story of love. It's about a person torn upon learning she has feelings for another of the same sex. Right when you think issues like this have long been resolved in our society after years of debate, you find not everyone feels the same especially if it hits home. This is a type of book I normally do not read, which is why I enjoyed it all the more. It reminds me that different genres have a story to be read and are worth my time as well. Character developments are real, as are the love, and pains that come with life-changing decisions. It's a poignant tale of love, romance, and real life.
The story covers the concept of threesomes (albeit of a very unusual and unique kind) into practical and yet very erotic conclusions where three people find enough love and passion to want to remain together. This becomes all the more extraordinary when one of the party seems to appear only in dreams! As erotica, it is accomplished in the delivery of exciting and titillating prose. From mild illusions through detailed, sexy scenes, the concept is wonderfully delivered in truly remarkable writing. Of course, there’s much more to this story as the layers of sexual self-discovery are peeled back.
The book description stirs a rousing preview: ‘Claire is a young woman who only accepted her sexuality following an enlightening trip to India. Soon after, she falls head over heels in love with a gorgeous girl, Lana, a woman she meets only by pure chance during a captivating encounter between flights within Vienna’s Airport terminal. This love seemed far from being reciprocated and rather hopeless. Or was it?
Lana meets Claire whilst going from Slovenia on route to the US making plans for her perfect married life. This encounter reveals the essence of who she is within. She discovers a new side to herself. She becomes torn between two worlds and must decide. Whatever her decision, there will be consequences. She can suppress her feelings and memories during the day. Can she control them in her dreams? Will her dreams be strong enough to make Lana follow her heart?’
Now, if that’s not enough to stimulate your curiosity juices, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens, you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself! However, I will say it was well worth the read. It’s my second time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed yet again.
Like the first book of this series, the story had every element a good story should have. A thought-provoking plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I really look for in a good book.
Captivating and commendable, this work had me immersed from the beginning. It’s an emotional fiction interwoven with sexual discovery. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of attention-grabbing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a truly compelling and fascinating journey!
It’s one of those books that come along occasionally that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader.
This series is highly recommended for the mature reader of any genre, but particularly those of erotic romance. No doubt, fans of the erotic romance genre will love having a nibble on this one! For me, it offered good variety in viewpoint and interaction on a genre that, up until now, was unfamiliar to me.
If this book is anything to go by, I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Nico J. Genes in the future. It also has a distinctly cinematic feel to it and I could easily see it being adapted for a made-for-TV movie or series. This has all the hallmarks of making a great series. Unfortunately, this book appears to be the second and final installment. Perhaps the author might reconsider at some time in the future to bring these characters and story-line back to life again? Nevertheless, it still gets a resounding and well-deserved five stars from me.

I was immediately lost when I started this book. We left Lana at a cliffhanger decision at the end of the first book, waiting to see if her dreams were based anywhere on reality. Instead of continuing this storyline, we are given Claire’s perspective, going into great detail about her past, including how she came to know of her sexuality and come to terms with it in India. While it was interesting to get her perspective, I felt like we already knew Claire from book one and did not need to explore this area in such detail. It was almost like the second half of the book was written first and then the author went back to add this in to make it into a full length novel.
We continue from where we left off at Chapter 9, although some things seem inconsistent. Lana’s dreams don’t really seem to have the same level of importance and we are left in some sort of quagmire about what she actually did and didn’t experience. It felt a little clunky and disjointed, however the story was still interesting and the characters were engaging. To me, the book lacked the conflict that the first one had, namely Lana’s internal struggles and guilt over what she was doing to Greg. There is no real conflict until very late in the book, which often left my questioning what was relevant to include in the text.
I also found a few parts very repetitive. There are large parts written through messenger which come across like a script, and these are explored again straight after in Claire and Lana’s thoughts. I felt like we were reading the same parts over and over again at times, which made for some frustration.
I enjoyed this book greatly. It did not have the sparkle, magic and intrigue that the first one did but there are some very good parts to it. I really like the work of Nico Genes and look forward to seeing what she comes up with next.
Reverie Girl is the second book in the delightful Reverie Series. I think it is always best to read the first book to get the full benefit of a series, which is the marvellous Magnetic Reverie. Two women meet in an airport and there is a magnetic attraction. One lives in Washington USA and the other lives in Slovenia. Will they ever meet again? Is it real or a dream? It was an unusual, enchanting and utterly spellbinding story. I loved the exquisite writing style describing Lana and Claire’s stories so brilliantly. I immediately engaged with these two women who had been given well developed and believable characters. It took me through a range of emotions, and I was totally gripped to the end of the book. A powerful and poignant breath-taking love story superbly written by Nico J Genes. It was a magnificent romantic sequel to Magnetic Reverie.
