Summary: From the cover-

"As a dream interpreter at the Belvedere Centre for Sleep Research, Isabel Wright has never lacked attention from the opposite sex. Of course that’s because they’re hoping she’ll shed a little light on their dreams. Lately, however, she’s been pining for a man she’s never met. She knows him only as client Number Two – and his most intimate dreams have captured her imagination…

But everything goes south when her boss drops dead at his desk and Isabel loses her job – until Client Number Two finally pops up, asking all kinds of questions. His name is Ellis Cutler – and he’s even sexier than she imagined him. He’s convinced there’s a sociopath on their trail, but fortunately that doesn’t stop him from introducing Isabel to a passion wilder than she’s ever known. Drawn into a web of desire, betrayal and murder, Isabel and Ellis now have to find the killer before they find themselves falling far too deep …"

Why did I pick this book? : I am a Krentz fan, and this one was on my shelf.

Review: This book was a little complicated at first, as you really don’t understand what is going on, and the terms were foreign to me. But if you stick with it and read on, it was a great read. It was kind of typical girl meets boy, instant sizzle that carries on through the book, and you know they are going to get together at the end. On the other hand, the interesting part was in the details. Plot redone? Maybe. But a woman who analyzes dreams teams up with a guy who is an agent/ venture capitalist to catch another dream agent. I can honestly say that isn’t one I have seen before. If you want a schmaltzy read with a some suspense tossed in, this was a good one. =D
