      Finished Falling Awake by Jayne Ann Krentz I really did not like this one, for a lot of reasons First and foremost, it needed another editor to clean up the language and events There was no normal dialogue among the characters Everything seemed a little too scripted, too wooden, including the fully qualified names for things, such as the Belvedere Center for Sleep Research I swear if the name if the place were The Honolulu Branch of the Pinkleton Belvedere University Hospital Center for Sleep Re [...]

      Everything is like in Krentz s books should be a mysterious and dangerous Hero, enterprising and intelligent heroine , mystery and a little magic And the feeling Mature , evolving Awaited and hot.

    5. Mari says:

      I listened to this book with my Romance Unlimited subscription It s the typical Jayne Ann Krentz book She seldom deviates from her predictable plots There s a comfort in that though.A dream analyst and a lucid dreamer from a secret government agency team up to solve a murder mystery.3.5 4

    6. Leslie Whaley says:

      I m actually kinda surprised how much I liked this book There wasn t anything crazy spectacular about it but I liked the characters, the story line, the romance and the bit of action suspense.

    8. Kimberly says:

      If you love the Arcane Series from JAK then you will love this book too It almost seems like this is a early writing that was maybe the start of the Arcane family Honestly with a name change it could easily have been one of the books in the series Isabel is a dream analyst but not what we normally think of when we think about our dreams This is not the this symbol means this type of answers This goes much deeper She works for a man who believes she can do this but is hiding her talents under a r [...]

    9. Robin says:

      This book was cheesy, simple and almost a waste of time to read I thought it had potential during the part where it explains dream analysis and psychic dreaming to solve crimes But honestly everything that was supposed to be Top Secret was spread around candidly and for as few of people as there was supposed to be who were Level 5 Lucid Dreamers , they were sure popping up everywhere, seemed like everyone was by the end of the book There was a lot of oh brother kind of stuff from the dark shades [...]

    10. Shelly says:

      There was a lot of good things about this book The characters were probably the best part They we really well developed and I liked them both Some aspects of the book I didn t fully understand at first, like the Level 5 dreaming But by the end, I had a clearer understanding of it.

    11. Micii says:

      I m thrilled The book is masterful, the characters are fine, but the plot and story are fantastic Ellis and Isabel, their story even makes me dream of my perfect man Somehow I have a hunch that it could be Vincent Scargill.

    12. pianogal says:

      This is my all time favorite Krentz book If you ve never read it read it I m serious I loved the plot, I liked the characters It s just a good book If I could give it than 5 stars, I would.

    13. R.G. says:

      i loved the whole theories on dreaming it in itself was an interesting subject and of course the twist and turns along the way definitely didn t end the way i thought it was and of course it was a beautiful romance i love people falling in love it s just wonderful

    14. Carol Stanley-Snow says:

      Isabel Wright worked for Dr Martin Belvedere at Belvedere Center Sleep Research Center She was a person who had the ability to read dreams Dr Belvedere had two special clients that worked for a government agency, Client One and Client Two She read their dreams that were given to her and her analysis of those dreams helped those clients catch criminals The only problem Isabel had with the dream analysis was that they left her with nightmares because she received no closure on the cases Isabel fou [...]

    16. Carly Kirk says:

      This just wasn t quite what I was expecting I wanted of the dreaming portion to play a part, but each of the main characters only had one dream each that the readers got to experience with them The plot was a bit chaotic as well with conclusions made and acted upon about the bad guy s motives and thoughts that didn t make a lot of sense to me And the bedroom scenes were the deep kiss, fade to black, then dealing with the morning after stuff type I want a little description, but that s just me

    17. Pansy says:

      What a fun book Everything I didn t know I wanted to know about dreaming I honestly do not know how much of this book is factual or how much is pure fiction But it is written so that it all sounds like it could be factual I believe Falling Awake was exciting I was drawn in and couldn t stop listening Wonderful story with interesting characters A fine example of why I love Jayne Ann Krentz books Have you read one yet You should try one.

    18. Debbie Tanguay says:

      ok sleep clinic that has high level dreamers espionage etc

    19. Karen Kinsella says:

      Pretty good, far from great JAK always provides an entertaining read This one was that, but a little odd.

    20. Jackie Consolvo says:

      I don t remember my dreams ever, so for me this was weird.

    21. Alice says:

      Ms Krentz books are so fun to read Just the right tinge of paranormal, romantic suspense

    22. Lisa says:

      Another great audio book If you have read any of my previous audio book reviews you will know that the read makes or breaks an audio book for me and this reader, Laurel Merlingtion, was wonderful She got into the story with different voices and inflections for different characters It helps to keep it interesting and keep the story moving I really enjoyed this story because I never able to quite pin the story down Every time I though that I had figured a piece of it out, something changed and I w [...]

    23. Jen says:

      I figure it is safe to say that I ve read this book a favorite of mine over a dozen times, so I decided to make my most recent read, on June 30, 2017, my 13th I really love this story I have so much love for Isabel and Ellis and their romance And even though I ve read this book so many times that I know who the killer is, it never ceases to be fun watching Isabel and Ellis figure it out The humor in this story is really just outstanding I can t really say that I ever laughed out loud, but there [...]

    24. Amy says:

      Listened to this a while ago on audiobook don t remember it too distinctly, except that it was a light diversion for a car trip I have an interest in lucid dreaming, and maybe that s why I picked this up at goodwillor it could be that someone had just raved about this author and I figured this was a way to check her out Apparently she also writes under another name, but I can t remember what.From the PublisherA red scarf A roller coaster A tidal wave of blood.Isabel Wright spends her days at the [...]

    25. Ns says:

      Falling Awake unfolded very much like a dream disorienting and confusing at first, but in stages gave way to a alert and intriguing story The result was a plausible and intelligent plot even though it alludes to a bit of the supernatural The story centers around lucid Level Five dreamers, who are extreme dreamers with the ability to shift, alter and to an extent control their dreams For Isabel Wright, all this means for her is a job A Level Five dreamer herself, she is a dream analyst at a drea [...]

    26. Sheryl Tribble says:

      One of the one star reviews called this book dorky , and another positive review recommended you think of it as a comic book Both very true, and probably half the reason I love Krentz Half her heroes and most of her heroines were probably dismissed by the Cool Kids as dorks, and her plots tend toward over the top and unlikely, just like comics Her stuff also tends to be warm, loving, family oriented although with a very broad definition of family , and somewhat naive You always know there ll be [...]

    27. Mary says:

      I read this book back in February 2009, but I forgot to put in my review It s not a bad book but not a fast read at all If anything I found it quite boring Not much action but mostly the characters s emotions The book deals with lucid dream analysis Isabel Wright, as the main protagonist of the book, is a lucid dream analyst She is working for the Belvedere center for Sleep Research when her boss Dr Martin Belvedere is found dead in his office When Randolph Belvedere, Dr Belvedere s son, takes o [...]

    28. Jessi says:

      Isabel Wainwright has just been fired She worked for a dream lab as a Level 5 extreme dream analysis Her former boss had postulated that there were five levels of dreaming with very few people who are able to reach the fifth level So far, Isabel is the only analyst they know of There is an unnamed government agency who has been using Level Five dreamers to solve particularly nasty crimes Isabel then interprets their enigmatic dreams But her boss has died and his son fires Isabel She is frantic [...]

    29. Maria says:

      Ms Krentz can take an odd subject like dream research, give it an unrealistic slant like level 5 extreme dreaming, and still weave a wonderful story Her characters, Ellis Cutler and Isobel Wright, are, as usual, terrific, while the action is fast paced and builds to interesting conclusions as Ms Krentz ties up all the loose ends There are lots of minor characters to fill out the story line, which I always enjoy 1 29 16 I have now read this book six times The Level 5 extreme dreaming seems less b [...]
