That's sort of how I felt as I read Love and the Dream Come True by Tammy L. Gray.
In Love, we meet Cameron Lee who has lost some love for music - not only his passion, but his bread and butter. On the precipice of having to make a decision of where his life is going, he tries to escape for a bit by going to his sister's wedding. Lexie Walters is a single mom who has gone through quite a bit in her life. Through it all, she seems to maintain a sense of optimism and balance.
I have not read the other two books in this series, and I am sure it would be beneficial to have read those before this one (I am very much a completist and love doing things in order), but I did not feel cheated by reading Love and the Dream Come True first. There was much too heart in this story to feel cheated by missing out on the first two. In between the pages of this lovely book, I got a sense of, not just love, but humanity. Caring for one another. In the story, Cameron is attracted to Lexie, sure, but he's attracted to her life and being. Lexie's sense of optimism and the humor she and her daughter have in their life attracts Cameron like a light bug to lamp.
And likewise, there was much beauty in the struggle Cameron was experiencing. Cameron's passion for music, at once both maddening and also a blessing, is shown to the reader as a way of telling us that, as passionate as we can be about something, we also have to learn to roll with the experience instead of wanting to control it at all times. There is beauty in flexibility
Love and the Dream Come True is a lovely romance that I am sure many readers will love. If you're looking for a clean romance with a lot of heart - look no further.
