Dreams aren't real.
What if the person in your dreams is a real someone you are meant to meet when your life is unraveling faster than a buzzing guitar string? And what if your salvation comes packaged as a rock ‘n roll legend?
On stage, JT Blackwood, singer for the iconic band Slanker Knox, is all rock star dazzle and testosterone. But offstage… he's had his fill of greedy girlfriends who want the star and not the man. Meaningless sex with nameless groupies has lost its luster. He knows that, someday, the spotlight will go dark and doesn't want to find himself with only memories for company.
Part-time photographer Kori Connor is full-time frustrated that her life isn't what she ordered. She doesn't need another relationship. But now she's juggling two ~ a real one, and the one that has her vacationing in some strange man's head in her dreams.
When Kori agrees to pinch-hit for JT's usual photographer, he doesn't realize that her sight reaches further than just through the lens of her camera. When he learns her secret, can this rock star dream her off her feet?
Non-Warning: NO CLIFFIE. This is a book in a traditional-style series… it ACTUALLY HAS AN ENDING. Readers are not required to make further purchases to get that ‘Happily Ever After' sensation.
“The Reviews are in”:
“Dream Me Off My Feet” will take you on a Rock N’ Roll ride and a half. Believing in dreams and psychic sensitivity is the leap you are asked to take from the start. The possibility of soul mates is the next hurdle readers are faced with in this extremely well developed novel.
Stevie Kisner is an artist with words. She paints beautiful and painful pictures with extremely developed characters. Attention to detail in even the smallest of characters shows her love of her craft and storyline.
A seasoned Rock band that has been together for many years ’Slanker Knox’ would have personalities, struggles and inside jokes that would leave readers feeling like part of the story is missing. That is not found here! You are taken along for the ride!
“Is that how you look when it’s your turn to change the dirty nappy? Yuck!” Clay telling Ian he ought to try harder to stay awake while he was onstage. ~The band comments as they look at the first pictures Kori has taken of them in concert.
Some of the hottest parts that draw you into the story are Kori’s fan fiction that she originally wrote for the bands fan group. JT took notice and loved every page, many of the stories turned him on. However, he did notice she had plucked bits and pieces of memories from his life and embellished upon them for her naughty stories.
That was hot, he thought with a small measure of embarrassment. Another memory shed managed to pluck loose and run off with. It hadn’t happed quite the way she’d written. It was an embarrassing memory of an awkward moment. Feeling sheepish, and that he fully deserved what he got for snooping, JT took the laptop off-line and closed down the programs. ~JT sneaks a peek at Kori’s laptop to read an unpublished story.
Facing the loss of her husband, Mark, was a lot to contend with for Kori. And the fact that he had picked out his replacement with JT to take care of Kori and their son, Zach was one of the most profound and heartbreaking things. This was all written so beautifully. A dying man having the courage to enjoy his last days with his family and get to know his replacement will have you in tears.
“I heard you have a big heart, and I’m happy that rumor is true. I knew before I urged Kori to take your job offer. And that’s why I pushed her. I wanted to be sure she had support system around her.” “I refuse to sit home and die quietly, and I won’t put Zach through it, either. I want him to have happy memories of his last days with me.” ~Mark confiding in JT
The psychic connection is interesting especially during intimate moments and dreams of intimate moments. To actually hear and feel what your partner feels would be a blessing and a curse. Some of the funniest scenes are when they accidentally connect.
You will laugh, you will cry and you will fall in love with these characters.
We will anxiously wait for the stories of the rest of ‘Slanker Knox’, so hurry up Stevie!!! Just the taste you afforded us in “Stage Pass” was enough to get us interested!
