Book Summary

Detective Jordan Delany has a gift. Through her dreams, she connects with dead victims of violent crimes. Her isolated life as a drug cop is perfect for hiding the freakish visions, until her newest investigation has her posing as a cocktail waitress in a down-and-dirty strip club. When she’s saved from a drunken customer by a handsome stranger, the heated chemistry is exactly why she intends to keep Mr. Arrogant at bay. But learning he’s the new bouncer for the corrupt club she intends to bust just might be the one reason why she can’t.

Tyler McGee suspects a drug ring operating out of the local club is flooding the streets of his hometown with heroin. Determined to get answers, he plays the part of a fallen cop and lands the job of head bouncer. What he discovers is that the club owner isn’t the only deadly obstacle he’s facing. His attraction to an intriguing cocktail waitress with a penchant for danger just might kill him first.

My Thoughts

Dream Huntress by Michelle Sharp was another story that had things that I liked and didn't like about it. The Debut Novel was engaging, but there was a plot hole.

Tyler (Ty) and Jordan were from two different police departments and they were investigating the same establishment, a strip club. It was unbeknownst to them that they were working to take down the same people. There was an amazing chemistry between the two. Needless to say there was also a lot of tension. It seemed that Ty knew what he wanted from the start. On the other hand, there was Jordan who had attachment issues and she portrayed herself as being as tough as they come. She was absolutely unreasonable at times and I liked how Ty stood firm by his principles when Jordan wanted to use him to get what she wanted—well some of his principles, because when those two were together things got pretty hot.

As mentioned before, there was a plot hole. Jordan’s visions did consist of violent crimes, including sexual assault. One of the visions included a plot hole in which there was plenty of evidence left at the scene of the crime, but the crime had remained unsolved. Things just didn't add up. If the sequence of events and crime happened as it was depicted, I couldn't understand why the crime wasn't solved long before her vision

Despite the fact that there was a plot hole, I still liked Dream Huntress.  It had a nice balance of romance and suspense with well placed twists along the way that had me second guessing my analysis of the story’s probable outcome.

Rating 3/5

I received a copy of Dream Huntress by Michelle Sharp from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
