It took a lot for Andi to get to where she is now, finally happy and living a good life with her son. She doesn't need much else and she's good with how her life is going now. But then childhood friend and man who's heart she once broke comes back to town and is now her son's new teacher. Kyle knew he would run into Andi now that he's back in the town he grew up in, but he wasn't expecting that chemistry to still be there between them and now his plan of just igno

This series has been full of sweetness. Pure sweetness. And after a few months of lows in my life, I needed some sweetness overload.

I enjoyed getting Andi’s story and watching her getting her second chance at love with her childhood best friend Kyle. She left her best friend, Kyle, senior year when she fell for the quarterback instead... not realizing her best friend was in love with her, Andi gave up her friendship because her abusive boyfriend Billy forced her to cut ties with Kyle out of jea
I was ecstatic when I found out that Andi would be getting a book as she really did deserve a happily ever after. But I kind of expected more of this book especially when all the other books were really good. I guess my expectations were just too high.

This is a story that has a bit of everything. Be it unrequited love, to the point of what if I hadn’t taken the path that I choose to friends becoming lovers.

I really liked Andi in all of the books she was in, so it is finally her time to fall in
***4 Stars***

I was really excited when it was announced that Andi was getting her own book because after meeting her in Fearless, I thought if anyone deserved an HEA it was and Dream did not disappoint. It was quick, sweet and smexy read with a lot of heart and nice little dash of suspense tossed into the mix that kept me on my toes throughout the entire book.

I loved and admired Andi. She’s sweet, sassy and strong. She’s been through a lot, and though she still bears the scars from it all, s
This series has been a real disappointment and this book is the most disappointing. I have never been a fan of the victim of domestic violence trope and this one is no different. Best part of this book - the steamy, hot sex scenes.

Andrea Harmon married the star football player, Billy, who was also a jerk. After marriage he became an abuser. When he divorced her and left town she was a wreck. It has taken her two years to rebuild her life and the only male in her life is her 12 year old son, Nick

After the sisters got their happy endings I thought that the series would end. Fortunately, Andi got a book herself and now I hope for more books in the series. Am I too greedy? Maybe I am, maybe I am not. I just know that I like the series. I might have felt like the series is dropping in quality, but this book is good and better than most of the books I had the chance to read recently. I wanted a longer book because I felt like the characters needed more time to develop their relationship. Som ...more

Dream by Carly Phillips is the final book in the Rosewood Bay series and a great story of friendship and second chances!

I truly enjoyed this story. Andi and Kyle rekindling their friendship and seeing if it could turn into so much more. Dream was a heartwarming read where two people fall in lo

First off I want to say that this author is one of my very favorites. She is just one of those that I one click no matter what and I am never disappointed. I have been so anxious to get Andi's story. She is first introduced in book one and I just knew there was a great story with her and boy was I right. I was hooked from the first page and honestly I don't think I moved until I finished this book. It was that good.

Carly gives us one helluva read with this final book in the Rosewood Bay Series. Andi and Kyle's story is about friendship, forgiveness and a second chance at love. Andi has been through hell and back with her past relationship but has learned to be independent, strong and stand on her own two feet. Kyle has always loved his best friend but past mistakes drove them apart can a rekindled friendship show them they were truly meant for each other?

This is my first book by this author and I must say that I really like her style. This second chance romance is the fourth book in the Rosewood Bay series but can be read as a standalone.

Andrea Harmon is a single mum with a ten-year-old son, Nicky. She left an abusive husband and is trying to give her son a better life than the one he grew up with. Andi’s character is stereotypical of a woman who’s been through an abusive rela

5 star review Dream (Rosewood Bay #4) by Carly Phillips
I was a little sad to start reading this story knowing that it was the fourth and final book in the series. However I knew that it would be an unforgettable story and Carly Phillips did not disappoint. I thoroughly enjoy Ms. Phillips writing style and Dream is no exception; her characters are strong and easy to relate too and I particularly liked how she built the story up. It was also nice to catch up on the previous three couples and see

Since this series started with Kane’s story in “Fearless,” it’s only fitting that the series should end with his sister Andi. I loved Kane’s story and have enjoyed the series, so I was eager to read an early copy of Andi and Kyle's story. It was every bit as good as I anticipated, with terrific heart, inspiring character growth, gripping suspense and amazing chemistry.

Andi had some challenges growing up, with a mother who died too young and a father with a gambling addiction. Other than her brot

Dream is another great offering by Carly Phillips in here Rosewood Bay series.

All Andi Harmon wants is to live her now quiet life and raise her son. She had enough drama while still married to her now ex-husband and the father of her son.

The saying 'save the best for the last' applies to me with the final book of the Rosewood Bay series "Dream". I have wanted to hear Andi's story since the beginning groundwork was set for her in "Fearless" with Kane and Halley. Carly takes a very sensitive, heartbreaking situation in Andi's life and tells the story of what a victim of abuse goes thru. The doubts in self, the need for independence but trying to learn to love again and most importantly trust, not just in others but within yourself ...more

Andi has had a tough life. Her mother passed away right before her teenage years and her father had a gambling addiction. Her older brother tried to raise her as best as he could but being a kid himself wasn't easy. She fell hard and fast for the star quarterback only to find him abusive both physically and mentally. The only thing good he ever gave her is her son Nicky. He separated her from all her friends and family even her best friend Kyle. Kyle let it happen but he didn't want to. He was t ...more

I fell in love with Andi when we were first introduced to her in the first book. She is such a strong, determined, great mother. She got out of an abusive relationship and had to find her independence and inner strength again. She did with help from family and friends and with time. Then her past shows up, and sparks fly this time around.

Kyle moved away after high school to stay away from Andi. She really hurt him when they were younger. They were best of friends and Kyle always held a special s

“You're a brave boy. And Brave Men can cry and still be brave.”

Kyle Davenport is in love with his best friend, but never had the courage to speak. And on account of that, he saw her fall into the graces of the captain of the football team. But what hurt more was not to see her in the arms of another, was to hear from her mouth that she would never be his friend again.

Andrea Harmon has secrets that not even her best friend could know. And for this reason, she drives him away from her life. Howeve

With DREAM Carly Philipps’ Rosewood Bay series is complete. It’s a series full of sweetness, friendship and wonderful banter and this one is no different and a wonderful conclusion to the whole series. The books might be standalones, but as you see a bit of everyone in most of the books – especially this one – I would still recommend to read the whole series.

This is the fourth, and final, book in the Rosewood Bay series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but the three couples mentioned in this book each have their own story.

Andi caught the eye of the star football player, Billy, in high school. She was flattered to have his attention and naive enough to not recognize how he slowly separated her from all her other friendships. By the time he became abusive, she was pregnant and married. Billy threatened Andi to get her to end her last friendship with

This is the fourth book in the series, and gives Andi, the sisters' friend, her chance at an HEA. You don't need to have read the previous books to enjoy this one, but if you are a fan there are snippets of the trio and their loves too.

I found that this book did a really good job of showing how Andi had been sucked into her ex-husband's lies and threats as a youngster, and how she had developed as a strong and caring mo

Such a captivating and entertaining read, and not having read any book from this series yet I wasn't hindered at all by that. The pages were bursting with characters and situations that I found easy to connect to and follow and if anything after reading this, the conclusion to this series, it just makes me want to go back and read the others. I really enjoyed this emotional and romantic story, some might say it's a little too fluffy in parts, but I loved that.
