Spinning off from the bestselling Dream Man and Rock Chick series, this is the emotional and steamy contemporary romance fans of the Dream Team series have been waiting for!
Pepper Hannigan is determined to keep any romance off the table—and out of her bedroom—while her daughter Juno is still young. Sure, a certain handsome commando is thoughtful, funny, and undeniably hot, but Pepper’s had her heart broken before, and she won’t let it happen again. Not to her or her little girl, even if this hero could melt any woman’s resolve.
Augustus “Auggie” Hero can’t deny his attraction to beautiful, warm-hearted Pepper or how much he wants to make a home with her and her little girl, but Pepper’s mixed signals have kept him away. That is, until Juno decides to play matchmaker. Her efforts finally bring Pepper into his arms, but they expose the danger Pepper is in. To protect Pepper and Juno, Auggie will have to live up to his last name and prove happy endings aren’t just for fairy tales.
Dream Keeper is the final book in the Dream Team series and features a single mom who is not looking for love. Auggie ruins her plans!
So, in previous books, you have meet all the players, and there is an overarching plot involving dirty cops that Auggie and his team are working on. All that is still in play, but really, this story barely touches that. The focus is more on Pepper’s horrid ex and his sudden desire to win her back and Pepper’s family who are involved in a very shady cult (is there another kind of cult?). Throw in Auggie’s dysfunctional family and Cisco’s involvement and you have some major drama-llama!
Pepper and Auggie have a rocky road to get together, and then a rocky road of dealing with all the drama. Through it all, you get to see the previous girls and Pepper’s adorable daughter Juno. Dream Keeper is filled with crazy drama, hot sex, and heartwarming romance.
I switched back and forth between the book and the audio for Dream Keeper. I enjoyed the audio, but the narrator wasn’t my favorite. It was still a solid 4 star narration, I just found her voice to be a bit too high pitched for me.
