Description:

Brynn Emerson has always been in control of her life — until a mysterious stranger invades her dreams and her boyfriend, Trevor, suddenly dumps her. Life gets more complicated when secretive newcomer Landon shows up at school. The playful and handsome Landon is somehow connected to Brynn’s ex-boyfriend. Determined to find out how they know each other, Brynn draws closer to Landon… only to realize too late that she's risking more than she thought possible. 

Meanwhile, a person of power has his sights on Brynn. Will Trevor and Landon work together to keep her safe? Or will she be pulled against her will into their mysterious world?


My Review / Thoughts:

This book was a lot of fun to read.  Brynn has this wonderful boyfriend Trevor who all of the sudden starts making excuses about why he can't go out.  Brynn tries to understand but is beginning to feel more and more distant from Trevor.  At the end of Trevor's senior year he decides to break up with Brynn.

Trevor says it's to keep her safe.  Brynn doesn't understand what that means, and is determined to find out.  It's harder than she thought it would be because Trevor keeps avoiding her.

Brynn's summer didn't go exactly like she wanted it to, but she had finally come to terms with her and Trevor's break up, even though she still deeply cared about him

Senior year starts and in walks the dreamy new guy.  Landon.  Landon seems to worm his way into Brynn's life, and I was so glad.  Landon seems much more likable than Trevor.  Trevor was kind of bipolar.  He would want to talk to Brynn one moment, and in the next say he wasn't allowed to reveal anything, and disappear again.  He made me crazy.  

Brynn is plagued with the same dream over and over.  A mysterious man stand on the outside of the forest just waiting for her.  Brynn tries harder each time the dream comes to get closer to the man, to hopefully figure out who he or she or it is.  

With this dream other things start happening in Brynn's life.  She is determine to find out how Landon and Trevor know each other, and why they are always so secretive. 

I enjoyed this book.  There was romance, broken hearts, mystery, magic, and way too many unresolved issues :).  I  am anxiously awaiting the second book.  The book cannot end the way it did.  I need more like right now.  I need to know what happens between Brynn, Trevor and Landon.  It is bound to be even more exciting.
