The Romance Writer And The Model Cowboy?

If you could sum up Dream Kisses in three words, what would they be?

Modern Western Chicklit

What other book might you compare Dream Kisses to and why?

I don't really do that. I see each book and/or series as its own entity. I think that saying it isn't makes less of the work and the author!

Have you listened to any of Wendy Rich Stetson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is my first time listening to her! I really enjoyed her performance and will definitely be listening to more of her :)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen to this book in one sitting!

Any additional comments?

This series must be listened to (or read) in order. This is the first book.

Mims is a famous romance novelist who is kind of sour on love. She believes in it for her characters... Just not a plain Jane like herself. Meeting the cover model Sage from her books sends her info a bit of a tailspin. Her editor and his joke on her just was not amusing! Now she can't write. Needing to finish her book, she books six long weeks at a dude ranch hoping to find real-life inspiration and insight into her modern chicklit western romance. Too bad Fate is conspiring against her! Will she make it to the ranch? Will she get her book written on time? Will she survive the lack of civilization?

Sage hates being a sex symbol. Too bad it pays the bills. What can he do? He has to make a living somehow to keep his ranch and all the land. How did Mims end up on his ranch as a dude? Is someone playing a joke on them? All he knows is that she intrigues him. Will they get along? Or will he lose a paying guest and a cover model job in one fell swoop? Will he win her over? Or send running back to the city?

***This series is suitable for adult listeners (or readers) who enjoy modern romance with chicklit overtones in a western setting filled with fun and second chances while learning to love again and move past tragedies of the past :)

Chic Lit! Fun and Sweet Romance - Cute Could Be YA

'Mims' is a romance novelist whose book has finally hit the top of the chart. Dream Kisses begins as she is watching the models that will be used for the cover of her book. The male model, Sage is handsome, beautiful and strong. She knows the cover will be fantastic.

After an awkward meeting at the coffee shop after the photo shoot, with her agent and models-'Mims,' whose real name is Sarah, goes back to California to continue to write – but there's always a trace of Sage in her mind.

As Sarah hits writers block, she decides that a good cure may be actual experience, watching cowboys work a ranch. She goes online and signs up for six weeks at a dude ranch.

On her way to the ranch, in the middle of nowhere, her car dies. After a few hours wandering around on a twisted ankle she sees a cowboy on a horse in the distance. Sage rescues Sarah. They are both shocked to meet again and realize that their pseudonyms have met during the photo shoot AND now Sarah and Sage have now met.

This is a cute and sweet [at times eye rolling] romantic book. It follows the two of them during her six weeks stay. We meet the people who are most important to Sage; his daughter and those who help him run the ranch.

This is a very innocent book, one that could be played around anyone. No need for warnings. If you are looking for an alternative to the graphic and profanity laced contemporary romance books, this may be for you.

*I received this book in exchange for my review. It was an enjoyable book with narration by Wendy Rich Stetson - who is always great. I have listened to three other books performed by Stetson and she never let the listener down. She easily flows between male and female characters; from older, hardened voices to the innocence of a budding teen relationship and everything in between. I can't wait for her next book and performance.
