If I dream, will you dare?

All I wanted was my freedom. It's all I'd dreamed of from the first time I stood in the ring. Until I entered Robert Erickson's world. Until Serena. Cruelty and ugliness surrounded me, but she was beautiful and good. I wanted to protect her from her father's world, even though I knew being with her could mean the end of me.

If I Dream is the first installment in K. M. Scott’s Corrupted Love series. I started reading this book before I went to bed, but I suggest you don’t. I wound up staying up until 6 o’clock in the morning reading, because I couldn’t put it down! This author really knows how to keep you flipping the pages!

★★ 3.5 - 4 stars! ★★

If I Dream is the angsty story of two star-crossed kids who are fighting for their freedom from a very sinister man. Ryder is a young man who was orphaned and alone who turned to illegal fighting to survive, while Serena lives in luxury and attempts to escape her overbearing father. The more they get to know one another, they find similarities in their circumstances. That bond turns to more, and their love helps them survive.

I enjoyed this story, in fact, it was quite engross

HOLY SHIT!!!

This book was absolutely nothing like I was expecting!!!

I couldn't remember the synopsis so I almost felt like I was going in blind...I turned the first few pages and thought...okay - it's another "fighter book" yeah that's cool...

Then BOOM!!!!

K.M. Scott knocked me for an absolute six!!!

This book was so much more than a story about a boy being a fighter falling in love with some rich bitch girl!

I was literally on the edge of my seat as I got further into this story!

This was my first book by K.M. Scott and it won't be my last. I really enjoyed her writing style. It flowed extremely well, making it very easy to read in one sitting. Which I did.

Ryder has been fighting for his life since he was fifteen. He has not had a good life and he's fighting to survive. When a man shows up to one of his street fights, everything changes. He now lives in a big house and he's well taken care of. As he becomes the man's new prized fighter, something shifts an

It’s been quite a while since I’ve read a KM Scott book, so when I heard about If I Dream, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.

If I Dream follows the story of Ryder and Serena. All Serena has ever wanted is to live a life of her own, but she was trapped and destined to live the life her father mapped out for her. When Ryder came along, she had hope and for the first time ever, felt love. But, she knew that nothing could ever come of her feelings for Ryder. Her father would do anything to keep

If I Dream is the first book in KM Scott’s new series. It’s a great start. It ends with a cliffhanger and I hope I don’t have to wait too long for the next book, because I need to know what happens next.

Ryder is a fighter. He’s damaged, talented and strong. He is caring and nice to Serena. Serena is the first woman who is nice to him and they talk a lot. The more they talk, the closer they grow to each other. Their friendship is a secret and they want to keep it that way. They eventually fall i

This is a powerful start to the authors new series, it draws on an almost cacophony of emotions and at times it was a race not only to get to the next up but also the down that was destined to follow.
There was a darkness to the story that while it didn’t hide the light in every character, it certainly allowed the edges of each and every one of them to be singed by pain and sadness.
Bad things happen to good people and Serena is a good person, who was unfortunately caught in a web of her father’s

Josie's Review

I’m a huge fan of K.M Scott. I love her writing style and the way she can make me feel about the characters needs, emotions and conflicts. This book was a moving, emotional and nerve-wracking read. I love when an author can bring out not only a smile to my face but also sadness, disappointment and fear.

If I Dream follows Ryder and Serena’s forbidden love. These characters brought me to my knees. Both of them are from different sides of the streets but they were so perfect togethe

Amazing! Heart Gripping!

K.M. Scott is an amazing author that brings her books to life and her readers experience everything that she has to offer in her writing. You can not help but fall into her story-line and characters. This is especially true for this book. The heartbreaking story of the forbidden love in this book will have you on the edge of your seat and wanting more. The twist and turns are full of angst and emotion that will hook you from the beginning.

Thick with tension, If I Dream is a heart racing read. It left me with tears in my eyes, and dying to know what happens next.

This story revolves around Ryder, a young man who has been fighting since he was a teenager, and Serena, a girl who has been trapped by her father.

These two characters are complex, rough around the edges, and a bit detached. But, it's an understandable detached, they both lacked a lot but are trying to make up for it. Serena was very hot and cold, Ryder took it in stride

I hate giving 1 star reviews and have only done a few times. This book annoyed the shit out of me.

I kept reading, hoping that something would happen. Nope! Here she is, in love with this man who is a killer and he can't kill the dipshits keeping them apart? Get real!?! There are 100 other reasons I gave one star but that annoyed me the most.

The writing wasn't bad it was just the plot and the overall story. Ugh.

Survival

So loved it. Very exciting story. From the beginning I was tearing up just the circumstances that Ryder and Serena have to go through to survive.
Crystal's Book World ~ Crystal Cordova
I read and own the Heart of Stone series by K.M. Scott and loved those books. Then I got busy and never followed up on K.M. Scott's other books. So when I saw If I Dream was coming out and is the 1st book of the Corrupted Love series, I knew I was back in. I was dying to read a book that I knew I would love.

If I Dream is heartbreaking good. I have to say I have not read a book that had me crying from page one to the end. My heart shattered for the life that Ryder and Serena have been dealt with

If I dream was a suspenseful and angst filled read that has many twists throughout the book. This is the first book in the series and finishes in a cliff hanger, hopefully in the next book the questions I have are answered. K.M. Scott done an amazing job with the writing throughout the book, the author knows how to incorporate a lot of emotion throughout the story.

I gave this book 5 Stars!

I have to warn this book might have triggers for some, so read with caution!

Wow! I'm still trying to wrap my head around all the possibilities where this story is going to lead to. In one way I'm hoping that Serena and Ryder will come full circle and in another way I'm open to the possibilities that they already have. This book does leave you on cliffhanger but not a cliffhanger...I guess you could say it Happy For Now kind of ending.

This book is one emotional ride that takes you on a tailspin with in the underworld. You have Ryder who is brought in as essentially a personal pitbull and his boss’s daughter Serene who cannot help but gravitate towards him. I love how their connection builds throughout this story as well. My heart broke for them so many times.
I have been a HUGE KM Scott fan for a long time, and this one honestly did not disappoint. I found myself wrapped up in the world that she created. While some may say it

Serena lives in a gilded cage, she longs to be free of her controlling and powerful father. Both Ryder and Serena find a freedom in each others arms, but their love will come at a price.

IF I DREAM

IF I DREAM is a delicious heart stopping roller coaster ride! That will keep you on the edge! Like a drug or a high. Needing those endorphins. Those feelings that will pull you apart and then magically stitching you back up!! God I can’t even describe the mix of emotions that took me over. But by the time i was done. I was blown away!! WOW!!!
