ARC Review ~ Dream Huntress (Dream Seeker #1) by Michelle Sharp

Dream Huntress (Dream Seeker, #1)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: June 23rd 2014

Publisher: Entangled (Ignite)

Detective Jordan Delany has a gift. Through her dreams, she connects with dead victims of violent crimes. Her isolated life as a drug cop is perfect for hiding the freakish visions, until her newest investigation has her posing as a cocktail waitress in a down-and-dirty strip club. When
she’s saved from a drunken customer by a handsome stranger, the heated chemistry is exactly why she intends to keep Mr. Arrogant at bay. But learning he’s the new bouncer for the corrupt club she intends to bust just might be the one reason why she can’t.

Tyler McGee suspects a drug ring operating out of the local club is flooding the streets of his hometown with heroin. Determined to get answers, he plays the part of a fallen cop and lands the job of head bouncer. What he discovers is that the club owner isn’t the only deadly obstacle he’s facing. His attraction to an intriguing cocktail waitress with a penchant for danger just might kill him first.

My Opinion

I debated over whether to request this book for a few hours. It sounded like the type of books I'm looking for right now however I already had so many to read I wasn't sure adding another to my pile was a good idea. Thankfully, I went with the part of me that said you can never have to many books and hit request. I'm glad I did as well, I really enjoyed this book and it surprised me in more ways than one.

Dream Huntress definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. There was plenty of action, suspense ad danger that had me worried and routing for the main characters. There were also plenty of twists--even in the last few pages!!--which kept me turning the pages quickly as I wanted to know what was going to happen next. The drama in this book was created well and the police aspects were woven into the romance well.

Speaking of romance, this book wasn't without its hot, steamy sections that hooked me even more. I found the relationship between Jordan and Ty to be very intense and in one way it was good as the drastic changes in emotion did affect me when they had their ups and downs. However, I did find it a bit hot and cold and sometimes it did become a bit too much. I liked how things developed and how their pasts collided. I thought it was a clever use of the paranormal aspect and made way for se emotional and tense moments.

If there was one thing I wanted more of it was the paranormal side. I didn't quite get how everything worked and for me it needed a bit more development and detail. It wasn't the main focus of the book and seemed to pop up randomly. It also wasn't clear all the time whether Jordan was dreaming or not as some of the moments made it sound like she was awake.

Overall though, Dream Huntress was a fast-paced, engaging read that I couldn't put down. It kept surprising me right up until the end and I can't say that about many books. Would definitely recommend it.
