Review – Dream With Me – by Elyssa Patrick @elyssapatrick


Dream With Me by Elyssa Patrick
Publication date: March 17th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, Romance


There are a few things I, Evie Hart, thought I knew for sure:

1. That I hated Griff Sinclair ever since that night. You know, the night where he totally pulled a Mr. Darcy on me at the dance.

2. That Griff Sinclair hated me. I mean, seriously, would it kill him to smile at me. Just once.

3. That my life plan for post-graduation was golden.

4. That I knew exactly what I wanted.

5. And none of that included Griff.

But everything I thought I knew is thrown out the window by the biggest surprise of my life. All it takes is one touch, one kiss, one night . . . that leads to so much more.

I need to know what Griff means to me, what I mean to him, and what really happened all those years ago. If we even have a future together. And I need to figure it out before we graduate in seven days. Before I move out of Vermont, hundreds of miles away from Griff. I’ve taken risks, but this might be the biggest gamble of my life.


I’ve really enjoyed this series of books.  And, with every series, it’s natural to wonder whether the writer will be able to keep the next book fresh and different.  I can honestly say that this has not been a problem with the “With Me” series of books.

In fact with this, the 4th addition, I think that the writer has nailed it.  Sometimes, an author is able to put together a collection of words in a certain order, and the cumulative effect is something quite wonderful, as here.

This is a giddy, at times frustrating, emotion evoking read.  I loved the characters and their development throughout the book, not only as individuals, but as a couple, each trying to feel their way through their relationship.  And, whilst sometimes, instalove can feel a little forced and unnatural, I felt that for this couple at least, it felt organic.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
