Reverie Girl is the second book in 'The Reverie' series written by Nico J. Genes in 2018. I read the first book earlier this year and finally caught the second one while it was on sale this week for only .99. It's discounted thru 9/15/19, so definitely check it out soon. The series focuses on Lana, a ~30ish beautiful young woman who comes to terms with her sexuality and falls in love with two different people. In this second book, we get a larger perspective from Claire as well, learning new det ...more

Life Journey

Although it is the second book in the series, it can be read as a standalone story, presumably. The messages revolving around social acceptance, family support or lack of such, discovering oneself, being brave etc. could be regarded as universal.
The two female protagonists, Lana and Claire, meet by chance, while traveling to different exotic places. Their life journeys are also deep and heart-wrenching.
However, the descriptions of places are well written and culturally significant.
Their eyes met, they spent three hours in rapt conversation and then they parted in Vienna’s airport. Lana was on her way to Washington to marry her American fiancé. Claire had finally understood and accepted her sexuality and she knew that Lana was her one true love. Lana didn’t understand why the pretty Slovenian woman had captured her interest so completely.

This is the continuation of their story of forbidden love, conflicting emotions, commitments and fear of the unknown. Told in the voices

She's saying her goodbyes to family and friends and ready to make her move to the United States where she plans to be a wife, raise kids, and find a suitable career. What more could she want?

This amazing romantic novel by Nico J. Genes is the 2nd part of "the Reverie" series.
Like it's predecessor, this book has been a truly interesting and enjoyable read.
Once again the story-telling is of an excellent quality, the storyline well worked out, and the main characters, Lana and Claire, come superbly to life within this emotional love story.
The story is also dealing with real lifelike emotions and human actions, whether they are hetero or lesbian feelings, and brought to us in a very rea

If you have read Magnetic Reverie, the first book from The Reverie series, Reverie Girl is a must read for you. Lana, Claire and Glenn face the new challenges of love lost and found, of bad decisions and wrong moves. Despair and regret mixed with misery and blissful happiness culminate in the explosion of emotions you won’t be able to resist or stay neutral. Nothing is certain and anything is possible in a thin space between dreams and reality. And no sacrifices are too big or small when you fig ...more

After reading the first book in this series I really wanted to know what happened next. ‘Reverie Girl’ answers a lot of questions I had and really surprised me. This time we get to hear Claire’s take on her relationship with Lana. And then later Lana takes over and I finally understood.

The story is told from the point of view of two Slovenian woman and therefore is told in a language style that at first seems unusual. They are not native English speakers and therefore the dialogue and narrative

This book is definitely not for everyone-and adults only please! It depicts what two women go through as one realizes she is a lesbian and falls for a straight woman who is about to get married. I have to admit that some of the scenes depicted made me very uncomfortable.

There are quite a few twists in this love story--back and forth and back and forth until they finally get together for good--I think.

I received this book from the author for my enjoyment and possible review.

This is the second installment of the ‘Reverie Series.’ It starts out in Vienna, a place that has always been a city of wonder for me. I was excited this story was continuing because I just love the two main characters, Claire and Lana. This time it is told in the first person from two points of view. Like before, there is another quick twist. Then the story unfolds.

Claire is full of light and is seeking higher meaning. In the beginning, she doubts herself and comes across as insecure. I found h

It is strange, in good way. It gives answers, which were missing after part 1.
It gives hope and courage to let everything go and follow love...
Great book! Warmly recommended!

I enjoyed this sequel to Magnetic Reverie, a romance story with a twist. Lana boards a plane and receives an intriguing handwritten letter, she begins to question her sexuality and the reader is forewarned of potential problems and prejudices (the man delivering the letter presumed it must be for a man, not a woman). It is love at first sight, however, and Lana and Claire begin their affair. All the ingredients of a good romance novel are present and more, obstacles such as long distance, existi ...more

In the second installment of the Magnetic Reverie series, Reverie Girl, author Nico J. Genes tackles the hard theme of “coming out”. Told from the point of view of Claire who meets the girl of her dreams during a chance encounter at the airport. Lana is on her way to America where she plans to marry her fiancé Greg. The two women start up an online friendship that quickly turns to longing for something more, from Lana who is conflicted between her love for her fiancé and her growing emotional at

We have come to the end and I am not disappointed. I loved discovering the truth behind Claire and Lana's love. Finding how they met and initially fell in love left me gripping the pages eager to know if in the end, Lana made the dreams into reality. Lana who left Claire some years before seeking a normal life she found Greg and settled down into the same everyday routine. Suddenly the routine felt like this weight she could no longer carry and feeling like she was somehow drowning she found sol ...more

An absolutely gripping novel of the struggle of true love against conventional societal attitudes.

I've always felt that true love is nothing other than a burning desire to have someone in your life forever. "Reverie Girl," Nico J. Genes' second novel, is a classic example of this. It's a gripping read, full of suspense and emotion, clearly showing that a person's gender is quite immaterial if that person is the right one for you. It also shows that traditional views on relationships can throw se

In the follow up to Magnetic Reverie, Nico Genes captures more of the magic that made the first one great! Reverie Girl continues the story of Claire and Lana, two women who met and fell in love on a connecting flight. The drama only deepens this time (in a pleasant way) and we get more of a look at Lana and her mysterious dreams. I felt like she is the heart of this story and I love the depth of the relationship between her and Claire. A great romance for anyone who loves drama and a bit of mys ...more

Reading the book for the second time!!!!!

I was very involved in this book. I found myself inside the dream where I started feeling the sadness of one of the characters. So, it really impressed how delightful was reading it. You will learn to accept reality through sacrifices to reach happiness in your life.

This book is a continuation of Nico Gene's Magnetic Reverie – the same magnificent writing in a foreign language for the author, the same intriguing characters, and an apparent continuation of the story. At the end of Magnetic Reverie, the reader is left with a feeling that dream and reality have sorted themselves out, with the real Lana returning to Slovenia and her true love, Claire.

Initially, in a Prologue to Reverie Girl, we spend a few pages in Lana’s mind reliving the final moments at the

Nico Genes’s REVERIE GIRL dives deep into Claire/Klara’s point of view. Told in the first person, this explores Claire’s side of the story as told in the first book, MAGNETIC REVERIE. It also returns to Lana's point of view for some parts of the book.

It really is a magnetic story, it draws you in and pulls you from one feeling to the other. This second book builds off of the first and tells you more about how Claire and Lana came to be in each other’s dreams. The most amazing part, for me, is ho

Absolutely loved it. A wonderful and totally gripping love story.
Reverie Girl is the second book in the delightful Reverie Series. I think it is always best to read the first book to get the full benefit of a series, which is the marvellous Magnetic Reverie. Two women meet in an airport and there is a magnetic attraction. One lives in Washington USA and the other lives in Slovenia. Will they ever meet again? Is it real or a dream? It was an unusual, enchanting and utterly spellbinding story. I l

Another great book by Nico J. Genes! This is the second book in the series and I really cannot decide which I like better. They were both amazing. In this one, we get to see the story from Claire’s point of view, as well as Lana’s. We dig deeper into the realities of Lana’s struggles as she comes to terms with her newfound sexuality. It was definitely a page turner as you can’t wait to find out who Lana chooses in the end. Even if you haven’t read the first book, I still recommend you read this ...more

A compelling journey of sexual self-discovery…and more!

Reverie Girl by Nico J. Genes is another fascinating novel that gives the ménage-et-trois new definitions and new twists. Having read the first novel in this series, I was compelled to read this second offering. The author delivered again and didn’t disappoint. I can honestly say that this author has a gift for storytelling.

The story covers the concept of threesomes (albeit of a very unusual and unique kind) into practical and yet very eroti

Reverie Girl is the sequel to the brilliantly imaginative Magnetic Reverie by Nico Genes. It follows the story of Lana and Claire, two young women who struggle with their sexuality, as well as the distance between them and the prejudice they receive from their families.

I was immediately lost when I started this book. We left Lana at a cliffhanger decision at the end of the first book, waiting to see if her dreams were based anywhere on reality. Instead of continuing this storyline, we are given

Firstly, Reverie Girl is the second in the series and I thought it did very well in filling in the gaps from the first book (Magnetic Reverie), while adding additional detail from another point of view which I liked.

I enjoyed Reverie Girl very much. Compared to the previous book where I felt potentially supernatural dream elements slightly confused the plot, this one was focused solely on Claire and Lana's relationship and emotions, allowing for a much deeper understanding and identification wit

Reverie Girl is a story about the growth of a relationship between two women who have a chance meeting. It’s told from the POV of each of them. Much of the story is about the women’s feelings and how they change as their relationship develops. It also has a lot of content that could be called travelogue as the women go from place to place.
All of the introspection tends to mute the action in the story, although it does depict well the confusion that one must feel when discovering their hitherto u

The heart wants what it wants no matter how the mind tries to bury it. We finally understood what was happening with Lana and that her dreams are actually her suppressed memories. This is a lovely and satisfying sequel to conclude this intriguing story. I'm glad most explanations can be found in book 2 and I really enjoyed reading Claire's side of the story and getting to know her better. A lot of things start to make sense once we see both sides of the coin. Even if you didn't read book 1 (but ...more

This is the second book in the series and it offers the well expected answers regarding certain things in book 1 as well as a shooting continuation. I really enjoyed reading the series. I highly recommended for the mature reader of any genre, but particularly those of erotic romance (F/Fromance) with a hint of bisexuality. Character developments are great, setting is charming, the love, and pains that come with the story they all seem real. It's a poignant tale of love, romance, and real life. ...more

Even better than the first book. Great love triangle story. 7 hours so took 2 long sittings. This book gives great closure and I like the way it splits between Claire and then Lana telling the story. Great work. Recommended. To be fair although part of a series this book doesn't require you to have read Magnetic Reverie first. It could be a book on it's own ...more
