Recommended to Beth by: Christina Smith
Sarah Samson is a happy high school student. She has a good group of friends and a happy family life. Her entire world changes when she is literally knocked into in the hall way at school. It happens so fast she doesn’t realize the culprit until she finds Lucas’s book collected with hers when she picks them off the floor. The strangest thing is…she’s been having dreams about Lucas identical twin brother Logan for weeks now, but Logan is a complete jerk.

Once Sarah starts interacting with Lucas, s

One thing that I absolutely love about Smith’s writing is how personal it is. Everything that is written is so realistic that you cannot help but be drawn into it. Nothing has to be set up to make you believe in the story, you believe in the story because of everything that is put into it.

Smith has a way with words that allow you to picture exactly what she is seeing while writing. Some of the scenery is breathtaking, and you can just imagine line dancing with the characters in a small town din

Okay I just finished this book and I am feeling such an emotional high. I really, really like this book. If I could give it 6 stars I would. Fated Dreams is filled with romance, suspense, action and a few twists and turns. Everything a great book needs. I love the whole soul mate aspect to this stiry and the fact that Christina kept me guessing all through the book at who the "evil" person could be. Brilliant and one of my favorite YA books of all time.

Sarah is a great character. She's a talante

One of the things I love about finding a brand-new author is seeing that special spark. I love getting that feeling, the kind of feeling you get when you can see and feel the passion, creation and devotion new writers often show when they have poured hearts and souls onto the pages, leaving us, the readers, to uncover the magic as we dive into the new world before us. Christina Smith has that spark!

Fated Dreams is an awesome tale of soulmates. Not too often do I find a book that pulls on my ever

I signed up to review this book through the group We Love YA Books at Goodreads.

I really loved this story of Sarah and Lucas. At first they're adversaries with Lucas being anti-social and a jerk for no apparent reason to Sarah. Sarah on the other hand has two close friends and is a friendly person. Lucas soon thaws out, and they begin dating immediately.

I did think their relationship happened too quickly--there wasn't a slow build up but rather they instantly fell in love. It must have been due
Firstly i would like to thank the author Christina Smith for sending me a copy, i loved this book.

I loved Sarah right from the start, she was easy to relate to. Sarah moves to a new school after an awful incident at her previous boarding school and let me say this incident had me in tears. She makes two new best friends who are characters i loved as well. And then she meets the mysterious Lucas who is very anti social, he only has two friends and hardly talks to anyone, unlike his jerk of a iden

I have the honour of posting the first review for is book, yay me!
Didn't think I would. I mean it was nothing fantasy or paranormal which is my first love when it comes to books.
But yeah, kept me in suspense and it was so sweet and cute!
Sarah is a likeable and relatable girl from the first page. She has a horrible expierience in her first school and moves on straight away. There she meets her two best friends and eventually starts dating Lucas- whom happens to be the brother o

This was a very sweet book with lots of mystery. Christina Smith keeps you guessing until the end who the culprit is. I liked Sarah and Lucas's romance. And Logan ended up not too bad, and I kind of wish there was more about him. The characters were strong, and I love how a little mystery was brought in with a few of them to throw you off track. Can't wait to read the next book of the series. Highly recommend.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

At first glance I thought the book showed promise as it isn't the type of book I normally read as it didn't really have any themes of fantasy or paranormal which I loved to read as it takes you out of reality and into a different world authors have created but I truly loved it and thought it was an enjoyable read about soul mates. I think the book was well written and was an easy read as I giggled, sighed and laughed all throug

I received this book from a ARR program on goodreads. I absolutely adored this book! The characters were very likeable and easy to relate to. Plus I found the plot to be pretty unique... not one mention of vampires, werewolves, or anything as such. This was one of those books that I truly had a hard time putting down because it constantly kept me on the edge of my seat. The end was completely unexpected for me and I loved Logan's character. The only reason I gave it fou

According to my goodreads profile, I have read over 70 books so far this year and Fated Dreams is one of the best of them!

Christina Smith has an amazing talent for story telling. This book had it all! There was romance, mystery, tragedy, joy, heartbreak, intrigue. I loved every minute of this book. The characters were not just easy to relate to and likeable. They were loveable. Minus the evil Stephanie, of course. Once

I really liked this book. I was hooked from the very beginning.
I do not normally read romance books, but I think this book has changed my mind. I could not put the book down, I went to work really tired for a couple days from staying up half the night reading. I wanted to know what happened next. It is a beautifully written book with a little bit of everything. I really liked that there was romance as well as mystery. The characters were so relatable. There were no vampires, werewolves or demons

I usually prefer to read adult novels but Fated Dreams turned out to be a really great read.Sara and Lucas are two high school students who have been dreaming of each other but have never spoke in their daily lives. When they bump into each other by accident it seems to ignite their physical connection. The dreams are a bit crazy and end in quite a violent manner but it soon becomes a reality for Liz when someone starts following a

Fated Dreams is a book that I can easily relate to. I love Sarah, the main character. She’s very strong, very determined and brave. She’s always guarded and had a way to deal with her own problems. At first I thought that it was Sarah-Logan love story but it didn’t disappoint me after reading this book. I’m really glad that Sarah and Lucas have the connection. I didn’t expect the twist of the story. I love how it’s mysteriously written. I really loved this book and I will definitely wait for the ...more

I really enjoyed this story. It was sweet but not too sweet. It felt real and believable. I love the stories behind soul mates, and it was just the story i needed to read with everything thats been going wrong in my life. It was nice to be able to believe in true love and love conquers all for alittle while. This is a good romance novel for teens and adults.
Will def be getting the second book (i didnt read the preview at the end of this one) just so i can have another escape from my drama filled

This book had me laughing,angry and sad all in one. I loved it. Lucas and Sarah were such likeable characters that I just had to keep reading to find out more about them and more about what was going to happen next. Most of the time I can figure out the bad guy in stories after reading just a little bit but this book had me guessing up until the very end. It was amazing and I really wish I could get more on Lucas and Sarah. I did just download book two of this series so I am about to start readi ...more

Fated Dreams had kept me on edge. Either because of Lucas or the attempts on Sarah's life. Christina Smith had written what it felt like to be in love, exhilarated and wanting for more. The main character, Sarah, was made more humane than ever by feeling the fear induced by the one who threatens her life.

You have to read this book to know how it ends. And it ends with a twist! I could not wait for the next book Delusions.
Adding a review for this as I've rated it without a review.

A lot of things have happened since. 2014 Was a very hard year for myself so all the reviews are showing up on the same date. I can't explain why they are, if the ratings are justice or accurate I can also not say when I truly read these. I'm just going to say 2014 on the same day added just to keep the year right if not the month...

I don't remember this. And I gave it 5 stars.

Sarah is happier than ever with her boyfriend Lucas despite the strange things happening around her. Someone is following her, and becoming increasingly violent. To be with Lucas she needs to figure out why this person wants to hurt her and what it has to do with a murder that happened 80 years ago.

I really enjoyed this, I liked the characters, the romance was sweet, the mystery was interesting and Sarah's dad was hilarious.

I must say I was very pleased with this story. I fell in love with Lucas, a swoon worthy hero for sure. I also like Sarah, although, at times I wanted to shake her for keeping important things to herself, like stuffing the rock in her drawer. I read this book in a day and a half. It was a page turner, very interesting, and very well written.

I enjoyed the book, the characters, plot development and Christina Smith's style. I thought the book had a great storyline and I will for sure be readying more. It's always refreshing to read a book for someone that is excited and fresh about their story and that really came through. thank you for letting me read your book.

YES! Finally a book with soulmates but where they don’t immediately fall in love, a book where they actually go with their problems to the police, a book where it’s not all about forgive and forget, a book where they each respect each other and their wishes, a book where the author actually took her time to build the child- parents relationship!!!

TBH the cover sucks

Sarah is a high school girl who has been having a dream about herself, a boy...and a double murder. After a horrible six months at Hadley Academy where only one person acknowledges her existence, Sarah transfers to the local high school. She is happy to be reunited with her best friends, Emma and Derrick. Sarah then realizes that the boy in her dreams is no other than Logan Tate, the school’s gorgeous skirt-chaser. Why in the world would she be dreaming about that jerk? Though once Sarah (litera ...more

Fated Dreams was an enticing read. Christina Smith wrote a book I never wanted to put down. It was unique and I loved every minute of it.

Sarah has been dreaming of her death for a while now. There is a boy and a girl, a girl who looks exactly like her, and out of nowhere comes a guy with a knife. The boy is killed and the guy goes after her. Why did the boy call her Katie before his death? Better yet, who's the boy?

I really liked Sarah. She was const

This book I thought had a very unique story line. I was actually surprised by the outcome which for me is unusual. Usually you know in the beginning pretty much how the end will go but read it because you want to say 'aww' . We all want MR.

It is not a book I would typically read but I chose to sign up for it because I was intrigued by the storyline and thought it sounded interesting. I liked a lot of things about this book.

This was a great book, but it lost a star due to my slight annoyance at Sarah (the MC), for being super stupid at times with keeping things from her parents and boyfriend because she, and I quote, "doesn't want a bodyguard". So you have a person following you around and stalking you and trying grab you and throwing rocks through your window telling you that you are his, and you don't think you need to be protected? Say what? If I had that stuff happening to me and had a boyfriend I'd be like, he ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Sarah is your normal teenage girl, but there is one thing that makes her different: Every night she dreams about a boy from her school. Sometimes she even sees him dying. When someone starts stalking her and she even gets attacked, Sarah simply wants to find answers. Who wants to kill her? And what is the meaning of those dreams she has?

"Fated Dreams" is a nerve-wrecking mystery, that never loses it's humor throughout the whole story. It star
