Raksha has arrived from Nepal, along with his people, to reclaim his mate, but Cole Brightside is a young man afraid of a past he doesn’t fully remember. The two have only connected in Cole’s dreams, where Raksha is both beast and man. Now, Raksha wants them together again in the real world.
Can Cole make it past his own fears to become the man Raksha needs him to be? Can Raksha accept who Cole has become?
Can they find a place for dreams?
This is a new author for me and I really enjoyed this book. The writing was well worded and for being a shorter book, I still felt intrigued and couldn’t put the book down.
Cole is a man with a dream that has haunted him since he was 6. He dreams of a beast and of a man. But what he doesn’t realize until later is he is dreaming of someone he knows. Raksha has finally found Cole again, after years and years of torment and searching. And he is determined to make Cole see what is really going on and what has really happened. He also is determined to make Cole his again.
This book is about two lost souls reuniting after years of being apart. I really like how the author wound these two characters together, in the past and the present. Cole is trying so hard to overcome things from his past that has made him feel crazy, so when he meets Raksha again he isn’t trusting and runs like a bat out of hell. I enjoyed seeing Raksha be an alpha male but be so patient with Cole as Cole discovers what is going on. As Cole is figuring it out, you see another side to him as well. You see this nurturer and a softer side to Cole. It’s endearing and so sweet.
And when it comes to the bedroom, it’s dynamic. The fireworks between these two is overwhelming. Cole just looks at Raksha and melts. But as you read, yes the chemistry is there, but it’s about the love and the union of hearts and souls that have been lost to each other. It’s beautiful to see these two learn each other again and rekindle the love that has always been beneath the surface.
