I received a signed copy of this from the author through a internet giveaway and the following is my honest opinion for the book.

As I read this book by Quinn Loftis, being a child of the 1950’s I couldn’t help but hear Mr. Sandman by the Chordettes echoing in my mind. If you read the lyrics for the beginning of the song you’ll see why.

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream

Make him the cutest that I’ve ever seen

Give him two lips like roses and clover

Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over

Sandman, I’m so alone

Don’t have nobody to call my own

Please turn on your magic beam

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream

In his story the Sandman [Dair] while he does have tasks he must fulfill in regards to his newest project, Serenity, he’s totally enthralled by her beauty, both her outer and inner. However, given he’s immortal Dair doesn’t really have any lonesome nights, but he does fill her nights with his captivating presence. Dair is the type of man every woman dreams of having as their own, especially with the sound of his voice and the way he interacts with Serenity.

I found the storyline to quite sweet and full of innocence as she has never had any sort of relationship with the opposite sex before and he has never experienced the emotion of love before.  But the book is not all this, to complete the dichotomy there are moments of sadness and evil which brings everything into balance.

I believe this book should be classified more as a NA [New Adult] rather than a YA [Young Adult] due to the nature of some of the things which transpire. The writing is quite good in its completeness and the emotions which it skillfully elicits from those who read this book. For the dreams this book creates for its readers living the fantasy which is the story I’m giving it 5 STARS.
