Be Careful What You Wish For is the second book in the Dream Series and picks up where The Man of My Dreams left off, continuing the story of Alexi and Cassandra.
I really enjoyed Alexi and Cassandra as characters and was anxious to read more about them in this book. It was nice to see them having a life together after she accepted him and broke his curse. This book provides us with some of the characters from the last story, as well as a few new ones.
Although I did enjoy the first book, I thought Quintal did a much better job with this one. Improvements were on all levels, from the technical aspect of the writing to the depth of the storyline. The thing that appealed to me most was the glimpse back in time that informed us how the curse began, and why a vampire needs to be loved in their natural state in order to appear as human. I was curious to learn more about Alexi and how he was turned in the first place.
The books in the series so far are fairly short which makes them very nice if you are in the mood for a quick read that gives both romance and action. Readers can read this book without the first and keep up, as the author does provide a little background on the last story. I do find, however, that I enjoyed it even more already having read the first story.
Quintal leaves the reader with a cliffhanger at the end of this one to be continued in the next installment titled, The Chosen One. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
Alexi is a Vampire trying to live a human existence, he even has a human wife. The Vampire secret is paramount and cohabiting with humans – unless you intend on turning them, just isn’t done. Can Alexi protect his beloved Cassandra from the would-be enforcers of this law or will he lose her forever?
