"Pleasures of the Night" by Sylvia Day it is a must read. Here's a quickie review. The series has a great new concept: Aidan is a dream guardian sent into your dreams to protect you from nightmares. This is where he meets Lyssa. These two set the pages on fire when they meet up. It has loads of tension when Aidan learns Lyssa is the "key" their kind have been searching for and that he has to destroy her before she brings a end to their world as they know it. WOW I love it. The world Sylvia has created in this series is amazing. I cant wait to read "Heat of the Night".
One word of caution: Before reading this book be sure to wear cheap panties as they will be burned to ash by the end of this book! It is Hott Hott Hott!

I really liked Pleasures of the Night. It was about Dream Guardians who protected humans from Nightmares. One of the Guardians falls in love with a human (which is forbidden), however she may also be the one to destroy their world. The chemistry between the main couple was hot and I really felt that there was a genuine connection between them.

If you like graphic, steamy sex this is for you. I am all for well written erotic scenes but this is over the top for me.
If you are easily offended by graphic, even offensive terms, then skip this one.

Just started reading Sylvia Day and have enjoyed her works so far. This series intrigued me with the touch of sci-fi or paranormal aspect. I don't want to do any spoilers, so I won't go into details but I loved how he helped make her "remember" their time together in her dreams. Can't wait to read more of the series.

Sizzling hot Aidan Cross is a macho combo of MacDreamy And MacSteamy.
With a Dream Guardian like Aidan to keep the nightmares at bay, and to wake up to, who needs Grey's Anatomy ?
Erotic Fantasy, a feel good book to cuddle up with on a cold night !

This book contains wall-to-wall sex scenes but I can't say much more for it than that. It wasn't horrible, it was just...meh. There is some sort of plot involving Dream Warriors fighting Nightmares inside the minds of sleeping women; the chosen method of "warfare" is sexual arousal --and gee, there's an actual army of uniformed guys whose job is to creep into womens' dreams and fight Nightmares by manipulating the woman's sexuality (to which I say, eeuuwww). Anyway, in the case of the main characters, Lyssa and Aidan, their fantasy sex is so great that it somehow turns into real sex, sex that is so galactically awesome they... uh...I dunno, I lost interest after the thirtieth orgasm. The outcome (no pun intended) is so foregone that it sucks all the tension and suspense from the story and what's left is a sex/love story as predictable as a Hallmark "Special Event" movie. The writing itself is strong for this type of genre work. Sylvia Day writes vivid sentences and creates some interesting imagery. Her erotic sequences are varied and well described with lots of gasping and ecstasy and floods of passion and stuff like that. The main problem I had is that I just wasn't invested in the characters. Nothing seemed to be at risk for them except their ability to boink one another at will. There is a fair-amount of graphic-to-obscene language in the text so take heed if you object to four-letter words. Overall, an okay read but I wouldn't read it again.
