Description;  Victoria Dinham doesn’t have much left to look forward to. Since her father died in a car accident, she lives only to fulfill her dream of being accepted into the Manhattan Dance Conservatory. But soon she finds another reason to look forward to dreams when she encounters an otherworldly girl named Ashlinn, who bears a message from Victoria’s comatose brother. Ashlinn is tasked with conjuring pleasant dreams for humans, and through the course of their nightly meetings in Victoria’s mind, the two become close. Ashlinn also helps Victoria understand asexuality and realize that she, too, is asexual.

But then Victoria needs Ashlinn’s aid outside the realm of dreams, and Ashlinn assumes human form to help Victoria make it to her dance audition. They take the opportunity to explore New York City, their feelings for each other, and the nature of their shared asexuality. But like any dream, it’s too good to last. Ashlinn must shrug off her human guise and resume her duties creating pleasant nighttime visions—or all of humanity will pay the price.

My Review: My thoughts about this book mostly centre around the word "meh." I feel like it was kind of...boring. It may have only been 180 pages but I struggled a little to get through it

There were also things I did not agree with at all, especially with Reeves, it was too easy, too simple. This book wasn't for me but I would give Calista's other books a try.

The characters did have much going for them... Ellie could have been way more understanding and I just...feel like the book fell short. It has a great premise, I was hoping for a wonderfully magic story...but it wasn't what I got this time..

It was also just so fast, so so fast. Days and you're in love? No. Not at all.
