Review by Kimmi:Wow! I ♥ Paranormal Romance, l really do, however it has been a very long time since we went out on a date. (It's been a while since I've read a paranormal romance....lol) And from page one of In Your Dreams I wouldn't know it has almost been 6 months since I have, this book was exactly what I needed to cleanse the palate if you will.....I forgot how fun and exciting the world of paranormal is!!!
In Your Dreams is a story about Isabella, a former child star that lives in Beverly Hills. She is a woman with strength, will, and determination. Although it seems Isabella has a life dreams are made of, all that glitters is actually tarnished and doesn't shine. After attempting suicide only to be saved by her best friend, Justin, now Isabella is pissed. And yes she is strong, strong willed and determined, but with her sights set on suicide *coughs* a SECOND suicide plan it really is just a sad recipe for a worthless loss.
Bounty hunter Sean Martino is a man that lives in the afterlife and his job is to invade the dreams and help people that have attempted suicide and continue to have suicidal ideations.
And when he struts into Isabella's dream to talk her down off the proverbial edge he is instantly drawn to her. They have a very strong connection that makes Sean try a little harder to keep this woman amongst the living. But Isabella doesn't give a damn, her plans will not be deterred and Sean realizes this woman is going to be a hard one to save. He is used to having a bit of a hard time getting through to suicidal people, and helping them understand their worth. However with Isabella he has his damn hands full. She not only wants to commit suicide, she is damned determined as hell to do it.
So when Sean's rule bending and breaking ways catch up to him, it couldn't happen at a worse time. But before he is cut off from her and her dreams completely he does leave her with something that will force Isabella to make one of the hardest decisions she's ever made in her life.
Shit that book freaking rocked! With so many things in play and twists at every turn I honestly had no idea where Gina Ardito was leading me, so I just sat back and held on for dear life on this crazy ass roller coaster ride! The entire time I wanted Sean and Isabella to be together so badly, but the chances of that happening were slim to none and I really didn't want to get my hopes up to high for that. Gina did an excellent job using her fantastic ability to weave a compelling story where the odds remain stacked against characters that are complicated, complex, and intriguing. I absolutely loved Sean and Isabella's story. And Gina Ardito you have captured yourself a lifetime fan! I will make damn sure this series STAYS at the top of my TBR list!
In Your Dreams easily gets 5-Damn I forgot how kick ass paranormal can be!-Kimmi stars ★★★★★
I cannot WAIT to see what Gina has for us next in this series!!!!

Meet The Author, Gina Ardito:
I sing all the time. I sing in the car. In the shower. While I'm grocery shopping. And I headbop while I sing. When I'm not singing, I talk to myself. Just ignore me and move on. You get used to it after a while.
I don't eat my vegetables. Seriously. I'd rather have a cookie.
I'm extremely fair-skinned and could burn under a 60-watt light bulb.
I can't sleep without background noise. If it's too dark and too quiet, all I have are my thoughts. And even *I* don't want to be alone with my thoughts.
Don't ask me to Zumba, line dance, or march in the parade. I have absolutely no rhythm.
Regrets. I have more than a few.
My favorite activity is sleep. I don't clock a lot of hours, but I powernap like a Persian cat and rejuvenate within ten minutes.
I consider shopping and dining out excellent therapy for anything wrong in my life.
My feet are always cold. Always. My husband claims it's because I'm an alien sent to Earth to destroy him. (He might be right about that.)
Coming to my house for a visit? Unless you've given me plenty of advance notice, be prepared. My floor will not be vacuumed, there will be dishes in my sink, and I only make my bed when I change the sheets once a week (I'm climbing back into it ASAP. Why make it?) Housecleaning is not high on my priority list. Okay, to be totally honest, it's not on the list at all.
I can resist anything...except ice cream.
Since this is our first date, I figure I've revealed enough secrets for now. But if you've read this bio and think I might be the author for you, pick up one of my books or stalk my website: www.ginaardito.com and my personal blog: http://ginaardito.blogspot.com.
