I wanted to love this book. I really wanted to love it. Sadly, I did not, at all.

Dreamers' Destiny was off to a bang of a start. Quite literally. It starts with Cam and Liam having sex -- in a dream. Hawt hawt sex. I liked the beginning quite a lot, and not just because of the sex. When each character woke up from their dream, you could feel their loss. It was tangible.

Cameron and Liam have been meeting in their dreams for over a decade. Until recently, their dreams were mostly sexual and while

This is a story of two guys knowing each other for years, falling in love, yet they never actually met. How does one do that? Well, I could say it was via a long term Internet relationship, but no these two fell in love via dream walking. Liam Grady has loved Cameron Danu for years but he never thought he was real. When Cameron moves to Asheville, N.C. It is by chance the two meet in person and that when the story takes off. How do you get to know someone that you

This story is about Liam and Cameron. Liam is a dream walker and has been dreaming about the same man for years. He meets the man of his dreams ,Cameron, and at first they don't get along but eventually they come to realize they are meant for each other. It was a good story and I could follow along with it. I enjoyed the chemistry between Liam and Cameron especially in the dream scenes. In the end they fight to be together. I felt the story moved alittle too fast for me but overall a good read . ...more

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.25 stars


Liam Grady and Cameron Danu have been sharing a dream love for more than a decade. Since their late teens, each has had recurring sexy dreams of a lover—one who ages as they do over the years. These dreams are nearly as real as their waking lives, and each man has strong feelings about his dream lover.

Liam has lived in Asheville, North Carolina, most of his life. He’s great friends with his Aunt Dianne, who is near his own age. Like her parents, Dianne is Wiccan,

For 15 years Liam and Cam have been dreaming about each other. Countless nights they have shared together, in each other’s arms and in each other’s bodies. Yet each morning when they awake they are alone again. Both men are sure that the dreams are simply that, dreams…until they see each other across the packed floor of a club and everything they knew is thrown into chaos. Despite having been with each other for years in dreams, reality is a much harder hurdle to tackle. Not only is the idea of ...more

First off, let’s talk about the cover. I loved it! Right then, I wanted to see what was in store for me. Then I read the blurb and was extremely excited when I saw it appeared to be a magic driven story, and to see how the dream walker angle would work. I am always intrigued to see how an author creates a magical world and the different spins that may be in store for me on the concepts.

The first several pages were hot, hot, hot, and I was looking forward to the rest of the story after reading

This book nearly broke me and not in a good way.

Wicca, dream walkers, tattoo artists, books, all of these elements should have had me loving the book. I was excited for the concept and it's not often that Wicca gets any page time in the m/m world.

Instead, this book took me over two week to get through. Two weeks! I read about a book a day, sometimes more but this book sapped the desire to read right out of me. I ended up dancing around when I (forced myself to) finished it but not because of

In a nutshell, Liam and Cameron have been sharing dreams since they were teens. As they grow older the frequency and eroticism of the dreams increases until they are happening nightly (almost). Just when both men are feeling like no “real” man could replace their dream lover and thus both are feeling a bit nutty for feeling like this – they meet.

Unfortunately, in the real world, neither knows how to act with one another and this causes strife. There is also some danger in the form of a witch who

I am a Tempeste O’Riley fan. I have been since the very first time I read one of her books. Her writing is always laced with happiness and possibility. Dreamers’ Destiny had all of that, and some magic.

The start of this book opens with a… banging… literally. The two MC’s are in the midst of a fan yourself worthy sexual experience lol. I knew they were the MC’s from the blurb. No intros that they are but you just know. Thing was, where chapter one took us really set the tone about the magic of

Tempeste, this story should be a series…..I certainly would read more…..I loved the premise, I loved the characters, I loved the secondary family, it was sweet, sexy, and fun!

Imagine you had been dreaming about a lover for years and years…..The dreams were very hot. He knew your wants and needs like no other. No one could compare. This is what our author brings to this charming story.

Liam Grady lives in Ashville, and is the owner of The Feathered Quill a local book store. Cameron Danu is a

Such a delicious read! Cam is a darling, wearing his ink as a symbol of his love for his dream man. And Liam, honest and straightforward and magical. A sweet and intense love story with friends and family who have their back through everything. So romantic with a very satisfying ending.

I so wanted to like this book as I found the dream angle really interesting and original. Unfortunately after the two guys meet IRL the story toally lost its momentum and got boring and tedious.

Going medias in res and starting with a sex scene is not my cup of tea but I let it slide as it was not some random hookup but a longtime relationship, albeit in dreams. Fine! But then: The situation once Cam and Liam meet went out of control quickly. I could understand Cam to an extent, but the way Liam

Liam and Cam have been meeting each other in their dreams for years. When Cam moves to Asheville, he unknowingly moves to the same town as Liam and when Liam decides to get a tattoo, he ends up in the same tattoo shop Cam works in. Unfortunately, Liam’s had time to get used to thinking Cam might be real because of his dream walking abilities but Cam is blown away that Liam exists. And not in a good way.

Well, I didn't dislike it and as many have said it starts out hot hot hot, but once the two guys meet it's all angst and drama and self-sacrifice. surely there is some medication he could take to stop dreaming other than 40 oz of vodka killing his liver. "I am a martyr killing myself for the man I love... in my dreams."

I also found the interfering aunt annoying. He's in his 30's, owns his own successful store but dies whatever she tells him with regard to the business. I hate those pushy female

Books, tattoos, dream walkers, and an urban backdrop. Sounds like a recipe for success. I was really looking forward to the read and perhaps my expectations were too high. I thought the basic premise was a solid one but in the end things just didn’t come together.

The story started off promising and then when the mystical elements were introduced things got… not so mystical. Things seemed to get ridiculous rather than drawing me in with world building. I felt like I was being coerced into

This was a very entertaining read with some great characters. Not sure if there are more books out with related characters, if there are not yet there probably will be as some of the secondary characters definitely should have their own story!

Concept was interesting but what adult, let alone adult male talks, thinks or acts like that? The characters all acted like 13 yr old girls.

Rounded up to 3.5 stars.

This is a sweet, fast read. There are no huge insurmountable angst issues. No Big Misunderstandings. No past traumas plaguing the present. No past boyfriends coming to lay claim. Cameron – “Cam” – only maintains contact with his sister and her husband, Quill with his Aunt, so there isn’t any rejection drama.

The story really revolves around three things – Quill’s dream-walking, Cam and Quill finding each other after years of dreaming, and the dream attacks/Wiccan

I didn’t particularly enjoy this book, so I’ll keep it short. Liam Grady and Cameron Danu dream of each other. They’ve had vivid, passionate dreams of each other for years, and are more than a little enamored with their respective dream man. Liam and Cameron then find out they’re real. Liam had a bit of time to warm up to the idea before Cameron found out. Cam didn’t take it well and asked Liam to never see him again and stay out of his dreams. Since

I enjoyed reading this book. I give it 4.25 stars.

I'm not going to rehash the story line too much here. The story starts with Liam having a really hot intimate encounter, but then he wakes up and realizes it was another dream. He's been dreaming of the same man for over a decade, but the dreams are coming more frequently and it's effecting his waking life.

Cam just moved to Ashville and is settling in when he thinks he sees his dream lover in a club. It rattles him, but he's even more shocked

Liam and Cameron are getting the award for strangest relationship ever from me! Without having ever met this pair know an awful lot about each other, are actually probably well on their way to being in love with each other and have been having sex for years. Weird right? Well, this may have all taken place in their dreams but they have been constant companions in those dreams, together, for many years.

Dreamer's Destiny by Tempeste O'Riley is an angst filled, mystery, with hot men and even hotter sex. You might even want a tattoo after reading this one too.
Liam has been dreaming of the same man for a very long time now. He knows exactly what the man looks like in his dreams. When he goes to a tattoo parlor to get a tattoo of the ink he sees on his dream man. Guess who he meets? His dream man! Liam is all for having him be real and loving him outside the dream.
