Dreaming in Color
Marek Donovan just wants to be left alone to lick his wounds and recover from a terribl ...more
The sex though... where to begin first there was way too much of it. Second it the terminology used was disgusting most of the time and it was the least sexiest sex i have ever read, at the same time it was also the funniest
I don't know what was up with Collins asshole but the way it was always hungry, convulsing, fluttering, flaming, winking, and who knows what i forgot I had to wonder was his asshole possessed by an epileptic demon or som ...more
This was 1st book by Cameron Dane and I had aways heard that her stuff was pretty erotic. But then someone also told me that this is her least smexy book. Hmm. I did lose count of the number of sex scenes because there were a lot!
So the book started off with dream sex, and of course I hate dream sex. But the dream sex really wasn't that bad compared to the real life sex. The terminology used to describe the sex was quite hilarious, especially in describing the activities of the men's ...more
I mean this book is so filled with angst, sex, angst filled sex, and an ending so disappointing I wanted to cry.
All throughout the book Marek feels sorry for himself, for what happened to his dead lover, and for what he did to Colin way back in High School. As the reader you don’t get to know what he d ...more
It's Cameron Dane. What else is there to say? She's like cheesecake or crack...you understand intellectually it's bad for you, but frankly you don't give a flying damn, cause it's yummy and addicting, and helps you forget your sorrows for a while.
I'm not particularly spiritual (I don't spend a lot of time thinking about things I can't see), but I had no issues with the metaphysical concepts in this book. Colin dreams about a house and a hot man. He has sex with ...more
This story felt a little imbalanced though. Colin has been having very vivid and explicit dreams about Marek for two years, so he feels like he knows the guy, he's almost already in love with him. Marek, on the other hand, hasn't seen Colin in decades, he barely knows him, he's very suspicious of him and, if you take i ...more
I really enjoyed this one. Once you accept the premise (i.e., Colin is drawn to a particular house in Fiji based on recurring dreams he's been having about its owner/occupant, Marek), the story is pretty engaging. It was a lot to swallow at first because Colin came crashing into Marek's life after having all these smexy, intimate dreams about him. Any reasonable person would've kicked that nut-job to the curb! But Marek lets him come around and the two hit it off. When old secrets from ...more
It's not that I can't get behind the whole house/dream (for two years!) calling out to Colin, or even that when he gets to it he reconnects with someone from the past, but man...it just felt...weird. And truth is, I guess I really didn't buy the "calling" from the house and the way Colin felt the house's pain?
I could get behind him and Marek though. But I was bothered there too...
First because Colin sounded crazy as fuck to be honest.
Second because of pa ...more
When he suggests a colleague and old friend holds her wedding on one of the Fijian Islands he goes along too.
From a tourist boat he sees the house he has been dreaming of and arranges to rent a boat so he can go there himself. He finds the man is someone he knew as a boy. Marek.
Marek is consumed with guilt over both his last lover and from something he di ...more
Summary: The sight of the red door saves Colin Baxter in his dream, but very quickly a man appears and the dream becomes a thing of raw sexual need with a person Colin can’t identify. He just knows the man needs him, and Colin aches to find and heal his lover…even if the man doesn’t reall...more
The premise of the story is that Colin travels to Fiji with his closest friends for their wedding and discovers the man and hous ...more
Colin has been dreaming of a house with a red door, a sexy guy that is in pain and seems to need him for the past 2 years. He finds himself in Fiji after suggesting it to his best friend, Jordan, as a great location for a wedding. Whilst there...voila there is said dream house. The home owner, Marek, is the man in Colin's dreams, even though Colin has never seen his face, he just knows it's him.
Marek is depressed. He has lost his lover to tragedy that ...more
I really really REALLY liked the idea, and the story itself is not quite what I had in mind but nevertheless good. If it weren't for the sex scenes, I'd probably give it 3.5 stars.
They were boring. The descriptions are almost clinical. Terms like 'quivering bud', 'stabbing his penis in X's hot wetness', 'Give it to me' and the like made me want to puke and laugh at the same time, and in this book, they were over-used. Some of them were about 10 pages long. I have rarely bee ...more
"Marek concentrated his full focus into all the muscles around his anus and sucked in for everything he was worth, so hard he was damn near sure he imprinted the shape of Colin ...more
Can dreams come true…? Can you fall in love in a dream and make it happen in reality…? Can the past come in your dreams and sweeten its way into you so you finally let go…?
Colin Baxter is in love. The man of his dreams is perfect, sexy and sexual in so many ways he has Colin wanting for more. The man of his dreams is suffering though a great emotional pain and Colin is determined to help him through it, make him happy. The man of his dreams for two years remains faceless and nameless fo ...more
I kind of knew what was coming, but the build up and the aftermath were worth it. The house's vibe and Colin's connection to it were a hit with me, to say nothing of the diaries and Marek's emails. I bet Jordon got a laugh at the butt plug reference. Tag was adorable and smart too.
The main reason for the 'pretty good read' instead of 'really good read' was the abundancy of sex scenes in the first two thirds of this book. It felt to me as if there was a sex scene every few pages - Colin goes to sleep, he has sex wit ...more
Ms. Dane once again has written incredibly powerful, believable characters and what I love the most about here writing is that she doesn't spoon feed the reader. She works hard on establishing her characters and then let's the reader imagine how the dialog might transpire. There ...more
Marek is the man in Colin's dreams and he's someone from Colin's past. Colin was beaten within an inch of his life when he was seventeen and it turns out Marek is the one who set the ball rolling with that without ever meaning to and he holds the key to Colin figuring o ...more
I usually love Dane's books, and I did like this one. However, it was difficult for me to get into at first. I like Colin; he's sweet and tenacious. Marek's guilt over two eve ...more
When I first got it, I was expecting something sappy
and received a consistent love story with great characters
and just the right amount of suspense instead.
Both Colin & Marek are incredibly strong men, each with
their own history, issues and buggage. They start as the
absolute opposites and end up drawn together after a series
I liked how Marek seemed like a rogue quitter, who is not to
be messed with, but he was only trying to hide the pain and ...more
The setting in Fiji was beautifully imagined and it’s such a great but ironic backdrop for the rather painful pasts of Colin and Marek. It’s a novel that feels like it came out of a movie first. The history behind the house, Colin’s dream, Payton’s death and all ...more
I was a little leery of this book at first, but I ended up really enjoying it. The relationship between the two main characters is filled with tension, and they must each come to terms with each other and how they got to where they are in their life.
If I had a complaint, I would say that their issues are resolved a little too quickly and a bit too cleanly, I would have liked to have seen a bit more in the turmoil they faced.
That said, it is an excellent book, and I really enjoyed it.
Both the story and imagery were gorgeous. The story was a bit long, but it didn't feel like it while reading it. The mystical aspects were well-done and didn't take over the entire storyline. Overall, this is one of the best books I've read in quite a while.
