When Roman wakes from a six month coma, the first thing he sees is the girl of his dreams. Except Bryn isn’t confined to the dream-state anymore and neither is he. He’s awake and alive and as the memories of how he and Bryn fell in love come rushing back, so do the memories of why he’s lying in that hospital bed in the first place.

Plagued by guilt, Roman makes a decision t

Definitely not as good as the first one because this delves more into the paranormal aspect. I liked the first book because it was more believable in what could actually happen.

I did like the whole Roman/Bryn relationship problems.

Did not love :-(

What I liked!
Roman relationship with his loving italian grandparents, and rebuilding his relationship with his dad during a hard-fought recovery following being paralyzed.

So i would say a solid 4 stars for first third of book.

What I didnt like..

Didnt enjoy any of the new characters, and the move away from real life issues of book 1 (abandonment, chronic illness, isolation) into generic PNR 'every one has powers' territory.

Thought the world building was greart in the first one bu

It was good and had a similar tone but there were so many things to keep up with it got confusing. Sometimes when a character would be imagining something there would be no change in tone or font so a lot of pages I had to read three times because I didn't know what was happening. But I'm so invested in Roman that now I have to see what happens next!

At first, I picked this book up just because it was free. I didn't expect to get sucked into it as much as I did. I absolutely loved it!

Not as good as the first. The second half just seemed to try and do too much.
Katie B (Bisforbookiemonster)
I was a fan of the first book in the series. I thought that it was refreshingly different in a pile of YA novels that for the most part seem to be exhaustingly similar. While that still holds true for the sequel, The Boy in Her Dreams, it was too much for me. There were too many problems that were thrown at these poor characters. Nothing was truly resolved at the end – everyone was either sad or dead, or in Bryn’s case kind of both.

On the bright side, for those people who thought that the first

The Boy In Her Dreams (The Girl In Between : Series Book 2)by Laekan Zea Kemp
This novel continues from the end of the first novel and this review contains my review of that novel with a small amount about this novel added to the end.
I can't claim to be a great fan of some series that include certain elements and this one could easily fall into that category. On the other hand I have to admit that the cover intrigued me; though it did almost put me off, because I rarely read horror fiction

Good series

The story line is good and flows well together. Some of the visual imagry can be a little garbled, making it difficult to understand what some of the characters in the scene are trying to portray. Since this series is my first experience with this writer, not sure how seasoned they are. Overall, good book and the series is worth the read. It is appropriate for anyone who can read chapter books, so elementary and up.

I was so excited to have the opportunity to read The Boy in Her Dreams, the second book in the The Girl In Between series, to find out more of what happens to Bryn and Roman, to finally get some answers to my questions. Laekan Zea Kemp does not disappoint.
The book starts out right where the first book ends, and you can already tell that the dynamic and chemistry between the two main characters, Bryn and Roman, are just as potent as in the first. Now, however, they are no longer in the dream worl

It's getting so exciting!

This is a great sequel. The Writing is done just as well as the first book. It carries you further into the lives of these special dreamers. It has gotten so full of action that it's hard to put the book down!

The thing that carried this book were the characters. OMG THE GROWTH OF THESE CHARACTERS <3.

The separation honestly helped them to grow. We get to see these characters (esp. Roman, who had immense cha

If you haven't read book 1, DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW.

The Boy in Her Dreams starts right where book one ended. So now that Roman has awakened things should be easy and everyone should be happy, don't they? Well... let's say that shit just got real.

Once Roman takes what it looks like not only a selfish but the most stupid decision in the world, Bryn accelerates her journey to Germany. (Of course, after she sleeps for eight weeks. Crazy as it sounds it helps to move time in a faster way). The minute

The boy in her dreams is the sequel to The Girl in between and follows the story of Bryn, a teenage girl who suffers from Klein-Levin Syndrome ( a disease that makes her sleep for long periods) and Roman, a boy who just woke up from coma.

This book starts off exactly were the previous left off. Roman has woken up from the coma and Bryn believes that things are finally looking better. But she couldn’t be more wrong. Roman may have woken up but he has changed. He’s no longer the boy Bryn met in her

I found this series to be frustrating.

On the one hand, it is extremely repetitive in some respects, and because of that it is slow moving. On the other hand, when details are important, the author skimps - especially when describing elements that have not been fully explained yet. She gives us a visual, but it is truly not fleshed out enough to spark curiosity, rather it seeded frustration - for me, at least. And I get that I am probably not the intended demographic. In the end, I tried hard to
This book was just as good as the first one, but I could not rate it more than three stars because the editing was subpar. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if no editing had been done at all. There were complete sentences that contradicted each other.

"Felix fell to his knees, rushing to tear it from her hands, but I pushed him aside."

I don't really see how Felix can rush to tear something from a girls hands if he's fallen to his knees. In the first book, Roman's full name was David Roman Santil

The Boy In Her Dreams is the second book in The Girl In Between trilogy and picks up right where book one ended.

I enjoyed this book as much as the first, and there was more involvement in the characters and plenty more drama and action. Many questions from the first book were answered and by the end of this book I had more, especially after the slightly confusing ending.

Once again, this book is wonderfully written. It’s so easy to read and hard to put down because the storyline is so intriguing

I really wanted to like this book - but I guess the most I could hope for was not hating it. I got halfway through it the first day, and put it down in boredom - decided to finish it anyway instead of throwing it in the "meh, IDGAF"pile.

I liked (view spoiler) but it didn't feel like it was completely thought out or explained in enough deta

Another exceedingly well written novel. However, the series has become too scary for me now so I won't be buying the third. Fans of horror / paranormal type writing will like this series.

After finishing the first book in this series I wasn't expecting the things that happened to happen. I thought that it may have been more of a romance story but I was pleasantly surprised. Once again Laekan has written characters you can relate to and want to help, especially Sam near the end. It took all had not to cry when Sam was back in the forest with Bryn for the last time. I loved the plot twist with Dr. Banz, that was something I really hadn't been expecting and yet I felt like I should ...more

I had high hopes for this book. I really enjoyed the first book, and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing significant growth in some of the characters in this book... until I hit the half way point. It was then that the author took a significant turn in a new direction and things became confusing. Too many new characters were introduced at this point. Also, I felt the author's writing became unclear. An example: at one point three females are in a room together and the author keeps saying "she" without ...more

This book series seriously has a good story line, I really enjoyed the first book, however this one went a bit too far on some of the paranormal aspects. With that said though, I can't wait to start the next book of the series!

I agree with other reviewers that say this book doesn't appear to have been edited. The editing issues are so distracting and careless I just can't finish this book. One chapter starts, then breaks to another page and then repeats the same 3-4 paragraphs from the page before and then continues on. There are small statements that contradict one another..."We landed in Cologne just before dark......I pinned my eyes shut....when I finally opened my eyes again we were beginning our descent, the sun ...more

In this sequel to The Girl in Between, we learn more about Bryn and the reason for her dreams and who the boy (Roman) is and where he belongs in her life.

Again this is well written with the characters developing as their story unfolds, new characters are introduced and again these are well written and believable. I cannot recommend this series enough as you will find yourself on a roller-coaster of emotions as the characters continue their journey, friends and family come and go, die and just si

I enjoyed the second book in this series almost as much as the first one. I think that it went in directions that I wasn't totally expecting and at first I found it a little disorientating, but once I accepted it was becoming a proper fantasy novel I fell right back into the world. I think Roman and Bryn's relationship was a little too easily explained away by the whole soulmates tag, and personally I would have liked to see them actually working a bit harder to maintain their relationship.

So this series has become one of my favourites this year, the story of Bryn & Roman continues as the plot deepens (cliché statement)and the dreams become more and more real. As we are introduced to more characters who might shed light on Roman's abilities as well as Bryn's unusual ability to somehow predict, and amend the future.

I finished this in record time, and each book usually lands on a cliff hanger. As well as becoming even more and more paranoid the characters are starting to fall a

The Boy in Your Dreams is more action-packed.t brings in more mysteries as well as a few answers to the looming questions. There is something darker and more powerful. Although a little confusing at times when the story climaxes and a lot is going on, there is no doubt that the premise of The Girl In Between series has been pretty solid and unique. If you enjoyed the first book, you should definitely check out the second.

The book in between

I still loved it, but it was much darker than I anticipated. I hate when characters die, this leads me to be very anxious about the next 2 books. I felt like it was slow in pace but fast in others, sometimes hard to keep up with, but the anticipation and emotions keep you reading. Another book I read all in one day. I'm left feeling a bit sad and still at a bit of a loss with the information that I actually know, everything seems to always be changing.... and yet I enjoyed it?

Why did this story take this kind of turn?

Now I am not sure if I want to read the third book in the series. This all turned so dark and hopeless. Not were I had hoped it would go. The writing was not as polished and it seemed like a struggle to even explain where the author was intending to go next.

Sorry this one was a disappointment for me. I guess I am to much of a romantic and this book lost the edge the first book commanded. I am just not sure if I want to go on to the third. I will check t

There were a few times, during these last few reads, where the dreams took a sudden change and I would feel left behind, trying to reread the description so I would understand the dream-state the dreamer was in. Sometimes the concept of time seems a bit thrown off, as well.

However, I still really enjoyed the read. It's such a unique read (to me) and the twists and detail put into this complicated ability is really nice. I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being one of the many books I own that

But in the way that one soul split in two will travel eons, endlessly, in pursuit of putting itself back together. Because when we’d touched I’d felt more than immortal. I’d felt more than awake. I’d felt whole. She” 0 likes
