I love both the MCs in this book, both from different pasts but connected through their dreams, but neither realizing what was happening, and that they were actually dreaming about a real person.
When Cameron moves to the new town, he settles in and decides to try out the local night life.... and while there he is convinced he has seen a ghost..... as he sees the man from his rather x-rated dreams. Liam also sees Cameron, but by the time he gets himself together, his dream man has disappeared.........although they do meet again later in their dreams.
They do get to meet again when Liam decides he wants to get a tattoo that reminds him of his dream man, and runs into Cameron at the tattoo place. Cameron's reaction is not what Liam expected and he shuts himself away in his room. Liam finally gets Cameron to agree to go for a coffee with him, where Cameron tells Liam to stay out of his dreams and away from him..
Liam tries so hard to avoid the dreams, but fails miserably. He gets so upset with himself, that he finds the only way to stop the dreams is to drink himself into oblivion each night..... which he does until his Aunt intervenes. She tracks down Cameron and persuades him to meet her and Liam, but when Cameron sees Liam, he is shocked at how bad he looks, and even more so when he realizes he is the reason why.
Liam and Cameron decide to try the dating thing, and get to know each other while awake, rather than in their dreams. All seems to be going well, until suddenly one night Liam is held gripped in a nightmare and Cameron can do nothing to bring him out of it. In the end Cameron calls Liams Aunt and his mentor to try and help.
Now begins a journey that could actually break their relationship before it has really begun. Is their love strong enough to survive the road that they must travel?
I love all the other characters in this book, especially Nate and Raven, and I hope that there will be a story about them in the future.
Q: How do you fall in love? At first sight? Over a long period?
Liam: Ha-ha. It seems it takes me dreaming of the person for almost half my life. I’m not giving anything away by telling you that I’ve known Cam via dreams since we were teens—that’s how long we’re been on again off again, though we didn’t know the other was real. So, I’d have to say over a really looooong period of time, lol.
Q: What impression do you make on people when they first meet you?
Liam: I tend to give the impression of what and who I am, I think. I’m a bookstore owner with a major in library science and a minor in business. I dress conservative and probably seem that way to others, though I’m really not. Dianne is always trying to get me to loosen up and dress more fun, though, not so much at work as she has a definite idea of what’s work appropriate. Since meeting Cam though, he’s changing me, getting me more out of myself and how others first react to me seems to be more positive and laid back.
Q: How do you feel about your life right now?
Liam: Post-book? Wonderful! But I can’t really tell you about all that since you haven’t had time to read about Cam and my story yet. But let’s just say that where I was at the beginning to where I am now is so far separated as to be laughable. I still can’t believe the changes in my life since meeting Cam in the waking world!
Q: Describe your ideal partner.
Liam: Cam. Next question.
No, seriously, he’s everything I want in a partner. He’s funny, quirky, loyal, loving, hot as hell, into the same kinds of things in bed and out that I am… um… I don’t know how to explain what it is about Cameron that makes him him. If I had had to describe what I wanted before meeting Cam, still believing he wasn’t real, I would have said all those things, plus I would have wanted someone not so serious, but that took life seriouly. Not flippant or wishy-washy but fun and laid back, things I am not. Someone that could balance me while still being themselves, and vice verse.
Q: What was one of the most embarrassing things your author did to you in Dreamers’ Destiny?
Liam: There are a few things I could have really done without Tempeste showing you, but honestly, the worst has to be… Well, there are two things that I wish she hadn’t shown, though I understand why she did. The night at the club, or rather what I almost did and failed to do is the one I wish most she hadn’t shown. When you read that part, it will make sense. I still feel guilty!
