★ SYNOPSIS ★
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.

★ MY REVIEW ★
The reviews have been all over the board on this one. For me, personally, I absolutely loved Dream With Me by Elyssa Patrick. So much so, that I want to go back and read the first three books in the series. Yeah, you read that right. I haven’t read them. Which means that yes, this one can fully be read as a standalone.
Dream With Me is written from a first person point of view, and it does have an HEA. It is what I love to term as an enemies to lovers plot. This one had a special twist however, and that is exactly what sucked me in via the synopsis. Our heroine Evie, claims that our hero, Griff, pulls a Mr. Darcy on her at a dance. The thing is, he does! From that point, I was hooked. I wanted to know what happened between these two characters.
From the get-go, the chemistry here is off the charts, and I may even want to note that it’s got a high heat rating! It’s steamy! The story itself sucks you in, it’s well done, well paced and for me, was a total page turner. I didn’t put it down until the book was finished.
What you also get from this one, if you’ve read the first three books… is an extended epilogue. I was a bit thrown off by this, but it was still nice to see, even if I hadn’t read their books. You get to find out where -all- of the friends are from this series, plus they show up in this book as well.
I have a very firm 5 stars on this one, and I will be going back to read the rest of the books in this series. I’m also pretty sure I’ve found a new author whose writing I really enjoy! So, kudos!
