Dream lover come rescue me

If you're looking for something different in erotica besides the same old typical happenings, then this is a great choice. A book great for those that like magic, paranormal, mythical, ect creatures and happenings. All of these stories deal with some type of paranormal or make-believe plot/characters.

extremely useful review
Dream lover is an erotic anthology of stories involving fantasy. There are situations that involve fairies, ghosts, shapeshifter, mermen, psychics, demons and possession. Some of those things may seem scary but in this book they are not portrayed that way and won't scare those that stay away from the horror movies and books. These stories focus on heterosexual encounters, some slight BDSM, passion, romance and of course, sex. Some stories aren't as hot as you would want them to be but are still a good read. With that, some sex scenes are very quick and may not get you worked up. There is some language that may offend people such as curse words.

The stories are great to read alone to help you get in the mood and/or keep you there. You could read the stories with a partner too if you'd like. This book would mainly just appeal to women but some men may enjoy them.
Being a fan of things like this, I figured I would enjoy these stories and I did. But some were a bit boring and left me thinking "THAT is it?!" when it came to the erotic part(s).
While you may not be satisfied with every story, there is bound to be a few in here that you will enjoy as there are 17 different stories
The anthology is edited by Kristina Wright with a foreword by Megan Hart.

Here is a list of the stories with the authors and a short, sweet clue in as to what they are about:

pg 1) Love Resurrection by Justine Elyot is about about a woman and her dreams of a ghost love and how her dream, in a sense, comes true.

pg 16) Dreaming by the Sea by Delilah Devlin involves a woman and her fear of the beach and a seductive merman.

pg 33) Devil's Food by Shanna Germain about a male fairy and his sweet tooth for more than just baked goods.

pg 48) Rainmaker by A.D.R. Forte is about a woman coming to terms with her magical powers and a man that helps her release those powers and well, get a special release.

pg 60) Shattered Belle by Craig Sornsen is a confusing ghost story

pg 73) Living Off Lovers by Kristina Llyod is an erotic story about possession and using two people to reunite the spirits of a couple that has moved on.

pg 87) Where the Heart Is by Saskia Walker is about a man turned beast like, reuniting with his woman love, and an odd happy ending.

pg 99) Freeing the Demon by Sacchi Green invovles living statues, revenge and an erotic twist.

pg 115) Old Fashioned Glamor ny Nikki Magennis involves a witch, magic and a high school reunion.

pg 129) Moongirl Meets the Wolfman by Alana Noel Voth is an odd story about shape shifters and their struggle to come together.

pg 142) Vainlla by Victoria Janssen involves baking, telepathy and sex.

pg 151) For Humans, Love's all about Weight is about a broken woman, a magical bird that is more than what it appears and with her help of it's freedom, she finds her own happiness.

pg 166) Succubus Comes Home by Lucy Felthouse is a typical story of friends falling for each other and a bit of supernatural help.

pg 177) Folly by Kate Pearce is about a spirit trapped in stone and the help of a woman to set it free.

pg 190) Lust As Old As Us by Madeline Moore is a love story involving a vampire.

pg 204) The Eye of Pearl by Ericka Hiatt is about an elf, a curse and a struggle for true love.

pg 220) Thief of Dreams by Kristina Wright is about an Angel, dreams and love.

pg 23) About the Authors

pg 241) About the Editor.
Experience
I really enjoyed these stories. I have other anthologies but it was nice to get something magical and make believe rather than the same old fiction. These are stories that you can come back to again and again. I really liked it because the stories involved other creatures besides vampires or werewolves like many of the anthologies that I have found.
Follow-up commentary
I like this book, the fact that it deals with paranormal and make believe characters was a nice change from the usual "couple" anthologies that I have. Anyone with a little imagination would like it.

    It's nice to find a book that doesn't assume supernatural=vampires, seems a little too "happily ever after" for me though
