*I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
Beautiful Dreams is the third book in the Beautiful series by Alicia Rae, and it picks up where My Beautiful left off. I was eager to read this one as I wanted to know more about Kyle and his past, and I needed to know if Lily and Kyle got their HEA. Lily had opened up to Kyle, and let go of her past, and now it was Kyle’s turn to do the same.
The storyline was about Lily and Kyle as they move forward with they lives, adjust to living together as a couple, their fears, their romance, their bond, and their trust in each other. I did think that Kyle’s past was going to test their relationship a lot more that what it did, and so, unlike the first two books, it wasn’t as high on angst as I was expecting, but that being said it didn’t make the storyline any less enjoyable for me.
I have always loved Lily and Kyle together, the passion and chemistry that they have doesn’t waver in this one. These two are great together; soul mates that in the end have helped each other heal. I love the way Kyle is with Lily, especially the way he wants to protect her.
I loved the secondary characters, such as Jason, Abby and Brooke. I liked the relationship that Lily develops with Kyle’s sister Abby.
Overall, I enjoyed Beautiful Dreams, another easy, well-written read from Alicia. I was happy with the way things ended for Lily and Kyle’s story. The disappointment to find no epilogue was slightly softened when I discovered that there will be a 4th book in the series about two of the secondary characters. This put a smile on my face as I like these two characters, and as a result, I’m looking forward to reading Beautiful Ties, and reading their story, but also getting to see more of Lily and Kyle.
I have really enjoyed this series so far, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.
