This is pretty much how I felt the entire time I was reading Wildest Dreams by Kristen Ashley:


And another image just to emphasize how I felt:


Holy crapola! I was expecting greatness but KA surpassed my expectations. Yup, she did! I swear I felt like I was on this huge acid trip while reading this book AND I LOVED EVERY STINKIN MINUTE OF IT!


To sum up Wildest Dreams, we have a typical KA alpha male who is a warrior who rules the elves and dragons. Yes, ELVES (no

SO. If we're Goodreads friends, you probably already know this (if we're not, you soon will): I LOVE Kristen Ashley.

LOVE her.

About three years ago I stumbled across one of her books on Amazon, one-clicked it, read it, and then . . . read every, single one of her other 40(ish)

Well, I drooled my way through all of Kristen Ashley's non-pnr/non-fantasy books and then, in dire need of a KA fix because no matter how fast the woman writes, it isn't fast enough, I decided to bite the bullet and give this series a try.

I am so glad I did.

If you have any doubts, if you find your ass planted firmly on the fence of indecision, stop. Just hop your ass down off that fence and read them. They're different than the non-pnr/non-fantasy books, that's true, but so, so good none-the-les

Wow. I mean, wow. I did not expect this book to be as wonderful as it is. I love Kristen Ashley. I know that 99% of the time I can read one of her books and love it. Admitting that, I can now say I was extremely skeptical that KA, queen of contemporary romance, could pull off a fantasy book.

I’m not a huge fantasy reader. I don’t mind reading it every now and then, but it is not my genre of choice. Wildest Dreams makes me want to change that! I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one, but I loved this book! Oh Frey... he was just amazing!!! And Finnie was pretty great too!

Are you ready... to be transported to another world? A world where most everyone has a ‘twin’? Finnie is spending a lot of money to have a witch transport her to this world for a year. She will s

Elves and dragons and hot guys, OH MY!!

Well we all know that KA is the one of the queens of contemporary romance books, but it turns out she’s just the queen of romance books in general cuz her fantasy book was pretty freaking awesome too!

It was fun, adventurous and romantic . Filled with palaces, balls, adventures, sea voyages… thrones to be won, assassination attempts, betrayals, political plots, battles, kidnappings, executions, oh, and did I mention romance? Much swoony romance!

”This adventure was totally worth a million dollars. Totally.”


Kristen Ashley delivered the story of modern day Finnie who pays one million dollars to go to another world (where we all have a twin) to spend time with her deceased parents, whom she misses greatly.

”Although the twin will look like the other, sound like the other, they are not the other but two separate beings.”

Her "twin" agrees to the switch and she is in fact a princess and once the transformation takes place it seems the pri

There are one of 3 things I do when trying to get out of a book funk:
a) Reread a favorite
b) attempt a new/different genre
c) hope there is a book by one of my favorite authors that I haven't read yet.

I hit the jackpot when picking this book, which fell under both the b and c category.
Leave it to Kristen Ashley to have me love something that was out of my typical genre.

I'm pretty much a fantasy virgin, so I hope I can do this book justice.

Valentine is a powerful, modern day witch from New Orleans who communes with people from parallel worlds. For a million dollars she offers Finnie the chance to travel to another dimension and switch places with her twin Sjofn.

Title: Wildest Dreams
Series: Fantasyland #1
Author: Kristen Ashley
Release Date: August 15th, 20122
Rating: 4.5 stars
Cliffhanger: No
HEA: (view spoiler)

Wildest Dreams is like a book that was perfectly written for me. From perfectly well thought magical world to the intense, sensual love story with delicious alpha male, Kristen Ashley made me fall in love with her writing. It’s like my wildest book dream came true.

Kristen Ashley delivered exceptionally sexy, romantic fantasy
Loved it! Love the world, loved the story, loved the characters. Absolutely. Freaking. Loved it.

Finnie is a fantastic heroine! With a strong sense of adventure and her ability to just get on with things, she doesn’t whine or pout or play games. She lives every day to the fullest, never holding back and I love that about her!

When she pays a witch to swap lives with her ‘twin’ living in a parallel universe, she finds herself suddenly thrust into marriage with the mysterious and scary Frey Drakkar

4.5 Stars! KA has quite the imagination and knows her way around a fantasy tale; it exceeded my expectations and was a refreshing, pleasant surprise.

Thanks to Dorsey and her recommendation, I finally took the plunge and crossed over to another realm and had myself a grand adventure. Suspend disbelief for a while and get lost in this world with Finnie and Frey, it’s the stuff that dreams are made of!

Time for me to cross over again…on to The Golden Dynasty!

You never have a choice but to live in the now. And this, my wee Finnie, this is where we will live. We will always live in our now.

Most of my GR friend probably realize by now that I'm sort of a fantasy nerd. Modesitt, Jordan, Martin, McCaffrey...there is something so different about reading their stories. I love all kinds of books, but authors who write fantasy truly are in a league of their own. Not only do they come up with their own characters and plot...they come up with an entire WORLD! Customs and clothing, from eye catching to mundane, their worlds are truly fantastical. I didn't even know until very recently that K ...more

What a MAGICAL book. A lot of people don't think that they would enjoy a fantasy book, and therefore haven’t given this series a chance, but I think that you would be missing out if you skipped this fantastic book by Kristen Ashley. The world she has created is incredible and majestic.

My Frey Drakkar and Finnie:

I feel like I need to explain something before I proceed to actual review. My rating and review of this book reflects only my subjective feelings toward this story, not the writing style or used vocabulary. So even though Wildest Dreams isn’t a masterpiece, I was still able to greatly enjoy this pleasant and beautiful novel.

Finnie is adorable heroine. She wasn’t perfect, she was getting on my nerves from time to time, but overall she was very lovable and entertaining n

You like Fantasy?
You like awesome heroines?
You like strong, hot heroes>
Maybe, dragons?
Funny side characters?
A unique marriage of convenience plot?

Ok, ok, I think you got the message. This book rocked. I enjoyed every part of it because it was action packed and had a good pace. It was never boring, and the characters were all funny and cute, at least some of them.
