Delayed gratification has its place. This isn’t it.

Gabriel Anderson has accepted a unique position in the shifter world. He’s about to become a Hunter, one of the few trained and sanctioned to hunt down the rare rogue shifter dangerous to humans and shifters alike.

There’s one catch: until his training is complete, he must hold off on marking his mate. No problem…after all, she probably couldn’t handle the sexual demands he dreams of making on her.

Her mate’s apparent desertion devastates Sarah. And his friendship with another woman threatens the bond they should be sharing and building. Maybe flirting with another man will make him sit up and take notice—and finally win Gabe’s heart. It works. Almost too well.

One touch of another man’s hand on Sarah’s tempting body brings every ounce of Gabe’s possessiveness roaring to the surface. He wastes no time making his erotic dreams of dominating her a reality—whether she’s ready for it or not.

If she’s not, the only place he’ll ever have her is in his dreams…

Book Review:

Gabriel is in trouble. He has been apart from his mate, Sarah for a very long time. Its time to claim Sarah as his mate once and for all. Too bad, he did not count on how hurt and stubborn Sarah is with him.

Sarah is hurt and furious with Gabriel. It looks like he is no longer interested in her. He has been communicating more with that server, Chloe instead of Sarah. She is not going to sit around and wait for him. No, she is going to try to make him jealous with her friend, Jim.

Gabe is through playing second fiddle to Jim. He is going to get his mate back if it is the last thing he does.

Dana Marie Bell is going to wow her readers and fans once more. She brings fans her latest Halle Pumas novel, Only In My Dreams. In it, we finally get the read about Sarah and Gabe.

In Ms. Bell’s Only In My Dreams, she does not hold back in regards of Gabe and Sarah’s love life. Sara and Gabe lives are put through the ringer. You definitely will have to hold back a couple of tears once you read the pain Sarah goes through--oh yeah, Gabriel too.

It certainly does not help that other people involved (Chloe and Jim) are in the way of Gabriel’s way of claim his mate.

This short novel is a fast-paced drama that will keep my readers glued to their seats until the very end.

The only thing that I did not like… (Gasp…how is that even remotely even possible?) is Chloe. You will just have to read why since I do not want people coming after for spoiling OiMD for them.

Overall, this is a great addition to the Halle Pumas series.

I give Only In My Dreams a rating of 5 Stars.
