Dream On Blurb:
Her
quest begins when she closes her eyes.
Emory
Bennett owns a lucrative dreamwalking business. Trained in weaponry and Muay
Thai, she spends her nights entering the dream realm resolving her clients’
nightmares, whatever they might be: bad guys, scary beasts, or the classic
forgot-to-wear-my-pants nightmare. Her jobs get complicated when a gorgeous man
keeps appearing requesting her help.
Grayson,
a fellow dreamwalker, is stuck in the dream realm while a stranger inhabits his
body. He needs Emory’s assistance in the waking realm, which he can’t visit if
he can’t get back into his body.
Once
Emory is convinced Grayson’s not a figment of her imagination, they concoct a
plan to lure the body snatcher out. But as Emory begins to fall for Grayson,
the line blurs between him and the stranger who inhabits his body. She must
keep it together to get close enough to discover his secrets, or divide her
very soul if she can’t bring the man she loves back.

I’m excited to be taking part in 31
Days of Halloween! Today I’m sharing an excerpt from Dream On. This scene
between Grayson and Emory takes place shortly after she’s met Alex, the spirit
residing in Grayson’s body.
 
Excerpt:
Closing
my eyes, I practiced what to tell him, reminding myself not to mention the
kiss.
Over
and over again, my mind replayed what I planned to say, all while envisioning a
park.
Sleepiness
settled over me and I drifted off.
I
walked along a sidewalk and stopped, laughing at a funny squirrel. It was huge.
I’d never
seen
such a large squirrel.
“Interesting.”
I turned at the sound of Grayson’s voice. He walked up beside me and tilted
his
head to the side, observing the chubby squirrel make his third attempt to climb
a tree. “Do
you
think this is your subconscious way of telling you people should stop feeding
the squirrels in
the
park?”
I
laughed. He was probably right. But that word did something else–it stirred
something in
my
memory. Subconscious. What was it about my subconscious I needed to remember?
“I
kissed Alex.” I blurted. My hand flew to my mouth. Oh no. No, no, no. My mental
prep
had
the opposite effect. Instead of helping me guard my private thought, it made it
a front-runner.
“Um,
okay. So, how was I?”
“I’m
so sorry. I wasn’t supposed to say that. It’s just, well, I tried to prep not
to…and well…it
just
came out. I’m sorry.” Mortified, I turned away. I was used to being in control
during dreams.
On
the rare occasions I wasn’t, at least it was just a dream. Did my clients feel
like this when I
invaded
their dreams?
“It’s
okay. I–” He cleared his throat. “I, uh, I don’t know what to say. I guess you
two hit it
off?”
“No.
Well yes, maybe a little. See, I thought if I kept him drinking, he would
divulge more
information.
Problem is, I drank a bit too much, and when it was time to go, he kissed me. I
had
a
slow reaction time.” I shifted my eyes downward. “Or something like that.” I
met his gaze, but
looked
away. “And to answer your question, good.”
I
slapped my hand over my mouth again. I was stuck in my own
forgot-to-wear-my-pants
dream.
Embarrassment overwhelmed me, as my mouth became a slippery slope of mortifying
confessions.
Grayson
chuckled. “Good to know.”
“Next
time we get together, let’s meet in a client’s dream, okay?”
“Really?
But I much prefer this.” He grinned.
“Me,
not so much.”
“Let’s
sit down.” I nodded and we found a park bench. “So, besides the fact I will one
day
make
you an awesome lover, did you find out anything else?”
My
cheeks burned. I had no intentions of things going any further with Alex, and
Grayson’s
implications
infuriated me. “It was a mistake. I’m not hooking up with your body. I was
drunk. It
won’t
happen again.”
“I
wasn’t talking about my body.”
