    I decided to read this book after reading Bared to You which I loved.SPOILER ALERT Basically you automatically get introduced to the main characters Lyssa Bates and Aiden Cross Lyssa is a regular human Dreamer while Aiden is a nearly immortal Guardian When dreamers fall asleep, but before they enter deep sleep, they enter the Twilight which is another dimension which we know as the dream world The Guardians each have certain tasks for the Dreamers They are able to enter their drea I decided to read this book after reading Bared to You which I loved.SPOILER ALERT Basically you automatically get introduced to the main characters Lyssa Bates and Aiden Cross Lyssa is a regular human Dreamer while Aiden is a nearly immortal Guardian When dreamers fall asleep, but before they enter deep sleep, they enter the Twilight which is another dimension which we know as the dream world The Guardians each have certain tasks for the Dreamers They are able to enter their dreams and basically give them their dreams Some able to fulfil deep desires of the Dreamers disguised as who the Dreamers wish to see, some even just creating a setting of maybe a picnic or sport event, all without the Dreamer ever knowing their identity or the truth of what goes on However, the main job for the Guardians is to protect the Dreamers from the Nightmares The Nightmares wish to haunt the dreams of the Dreamers until slowly they deteriorate from exhaustion, fear of sleep and so on However, the Guardians constanly search for The Key The Key is a Dreamer who is able to control their dreams and see the Guardian s true identities The Key is said to have the power to open the Gateway and allow the Nightmares to enter the human world would be a disaster as we know it, which is why the Elders search for it and wish to destroy it.So, Aiden is assigned enter Lyssa s dream world The Elders were suspicious of her since she knows about the Guardians and refuses them to enter Somehow she allows Aiden inthan once where they learn about each other, fall in loveand have some hot steamy sex So of course Aiden realises his worst fear when he discovers Lyssa is the Key Suspecting that the Elders hide the truth about the Key and , he risks his life to save her from death he finds a way into her world and at her doorstep where she has no memory of meeting him Basically, this part of the book drags where they get to know each other all over, while be protects her from the Twilight by exhausting her with sex and sleeping pills, before Aiden realizes he must go back go his world where they have no chance if being together Realizing the danger he s in, Lyssa soon follows him to the Twilight through her dreams to fight back At this point, its unclear of the details of what happens but basically Lyssa and Aiden share heartbreaking goodbyes, she returns to her world heartbroken , and everyone s memory of Aiden is erased but enable to be strong enough to erase Lyssa s Somehow, Aiden finds a way to return to her world in the end deciding he would travel and jump back and forth between worlds, still a little unclear how this comes about but I m sure we ll find outin the next.This story started out fast and good, rushing right in However, is slowed down towards the middle untilthan 2 3rds in, and besides the okay sex I was a little bored The story line had so much potential, I was intrigued and it got me thinking, but there was no climax We jump into the small climax, jump back out with an easy way out I really loved every character individually Lyssa, a smart beautiful veterinarian with a sense of humor Where to start with Aiden He is literally the man of her dreams, sexy, strong, wise, amazingly good looking, the whole package I was sucked into their love story but the story as a whole neededand the ending felt a little unresolved I m going to wait for the other books in the series to judge further on this as a whole This book was OKAY maybe good but it could have been better I learned Sylvia Day s ability to write incredibly well with Bared to You Pleasures of the Night was written very well and creatively, but needsto the storyline BUT, we still need to find out what Lyssa can do, how Aiden can manage to be with her, what the Elders are hiding, and .

    3 Very Erotic StarsI listened to the audio version of Pleasures of the Night I love Sylvia Day She s one of the first romance authors I read There s something about the classic way she writes I find comforting You don t stray from what you love Pleasure of the Night is an Erotic paranormal book It s out there and it s really steamy I would say about 70% of the book is steam, so if you are like me and listen to books at work, just make sure the volume is on low because you don t want your 3 Very Erotic StarsI listened to the audio version of Pleasures of the Night I love Sylvia Day She s one of the first romance authors I read There s something about the classic way she writes I find comforting You don t stray from what you love Pleasure of the Night is an Erotic paranormal book It s out there and it s really steamy I would say about 70% of the book is steam, so if you are like me and listen to books at work, just make sure the volume is on low because you don t want your co workers to hear you.I m all about unique and out of the box storylines, but based on the reviews, this isn t for everyone It s about Lyssa having sex dreams, but her sex dreams aren t really dreams, she s actually having sex with Aidan The dreams are crazy hot A lotgoes on in the book, like who Aidan really is and why Aidan and Lyssa can t be together The plot kind of takes a back seat to the sex to be honest Like I said, there s lots of it I didn t hate it, nor did I love it I just found it different and will I read the second book Of course, I already have it audio

    I actually found the premise of this novel very interesting, unfortunately it was just written by a amateur writer I felt completely disconnected from the love between the two main characters Day kept writing on the page how passionate they were together but I didn t pick up on that when reading It taketo convey passion and a depth of feeling then simply stating it in black and white The characters have to display this through their gestures The only love scene that caught my intere I actually found the premise of this novel very interesting, unfortunately it was just written by a amateur writer I felt completely disconnected from the love between the two main characters Day kept writing on the page how passionate they were together but I didn t pick up on that when reading It taketo convey passion and a depth of feeling then simply stating it in black and white The characters have to display this through their gestures The only love scene that caught my interest and had anything real behind it was the goodbye love scene, where he described his dream of their life together

    I don t know how to start this review Because while I loved this book I also felt it was lacking But I also don t know what it was lacking I m a freaking mess about this book right now.I listened to the audio of this book So I m thinking that is why I m having such trouble I wish this was written in first person because maybe that d have made it easier to follow along with the audio version I don t know.Anywho, I was ridiculously interested in this series when I read the synopsis I mean I don t know how to start this review Because while I loved this book I also felt it was lacking But I also don t know what it was lacking I m a freaking mess about this book right now.I listened to the audio of this book So I m thinking that is why I m having such trouble I wish this was written in first person because maybe that d have made it easier to follow along with the audio version I don t know.Anywho, I was ridiculously interested in this series when I read the synopsis I mean a world that thrives and survives on erotic dreams Count me tf in There was so much smut in this book My gosh It was like dying and going to erotic book heaven Fuck yes But seriously, the smut was what attracted me to this book And the fact that it was available for free through my library.Lyssa and Aiden s story had enough going for it to keep me intrigued The smut was a huge deciding factor of that Because I am still so confused about wtf is actually going on in this book And what makes it evenconfusing is the fact that the next book is told in Conner s POV WHAT I feel like Lyssa and Aiden s story isn t finished Especially with figuring out what she is and what she can do Like how do you end a book like the way this one ended and then switch the fucking MCs in the next book I don t know what is happening And I m so terribly confused And I m awfully upset this wasn t a finished series So I m not sure if I ll continue on with this series for the simple fact that at the end of the second book it s gonna be wide tf open and I won t get the closure of a finale book

    I rented this book in the audiobook format I have to say, reading Sylvia Day s books is one thing, and hearing it is a completely different experience Listening to this book allowed my imagination to dig deeper into the story and its characters This is a very hot and steamy take on dreams and nightmares It totally had me dreaming of my own Aidan Cross before I even made it to the end.I won t give spoilers away though, because A I don t want to ruin it for any one of you, and B this book is I rented this book in the audiobook format I have to say, reading Sylvia Day s books is one thing, and hearing it is a completely different experience Listening to this book allowed my imagination to dig deeper into the story and its characters This is a very hot and steamy take on dreams and nightmares It totally had me dreaming of my own Aidan Cross before I even made it to the end.I won t give spoilers away though, because A I don t want to ruin it for any one of you, and B this book is already a pretty short one and I d hate to take even onetidbit of it from you.A short synopsis This main storyline is about the Guardians who live in the Twilight Their Elite team fight against the nightmares that threaten to take over their world and harm the subconscious of us humans Love is found along the way between a Guardian and a Dreamer human And of course, it won t be a Sylvia Day creation without some erotic lovemaking scenes.Note The story does not conclude after this book And to be honest, it doesn t even conclude after the 2nd book in the series Heat of the Night However, if you want a light read that s sexy and unique, I recommend the books in the Dream Guardian Series If you re worried about the conclusion to the main plot, there WILL be a 3rd book I m not sure when it will be released, but right now it s tentatively titled Rhythms of the Night Maybe and hopefully we ll get the plot answers then

    I thought this story had an interesting premise, and I have enjoyed other books by this author Bared to You , so I started Pleasures of the Night but I just can t finish it.It is going in my DNF stack After starting out briskly, when we meet Lyssa and Aidan Cross, the plot seems to start spinning in circles I understand that the author has to explain her fantasy world and its rules to her readers, but surprisingly, there just seems to be waay too much smoke and mirrors to make sense of I I thought this story had an interesting premise, and I have enjoyed other books by this author Bared to You , so I started Pleasures of the Night but I just can t finish it.It is going in my DNF stack After starting out briskly, when we meet Lyssa and Aidan Cross, the plot seems to start spinning in circles I understand that the author has to explain her fantasy world and its rules to her readers, but surprisingly, there just seems to be waay too much smoke and mirrors to make sense of I wouldn t blame Lyssa if she shut the door, locked it, and threw away the key just so she didn t have to deal with all the weirdness.I probably won t be looking for any of the subsequent stories in the series,
