50 words or less: Picking up right where The Wallflower left off, this is the story of Simon's wooing of Becky, his mate, and his challenges in keeping her safe while convincing her that he's worth being with at the same time.
Sweet Dreams is fully a sequel to The Wallflower; even the end of the first book is used to set the stage for the second. With that said, I recommend reading these books in order and having them to read one after the other, as they work best as one giant story arc.
Simon and Becky are a funny, sweet couple who are obviously gaga for each other from pretty much the first page. I really enjoyed watching their relationship blossom and the interplay between the two was cute, fun, and sassy; Becky certainly knows how to hold her own in an argument and Simon is no slouch either.
We learn a little bit more about the Puma world in this story, and some issues from the first story get wrapped up nicely. The romance is spicy and sizzling and the stage is set for further stories which can expand on the groundwork laid here. I'm definitely hooked on this series at this point and am really excited to read what happens next to the other characters who are being introduced. While certainly I would have enjoyed a longer book (I mean, I always say that when I really enjoy a title) this series works well as a series of novellas. If you're looking for a quick, spicy shifter story, give the Halle Pumas a try.
Overall Grade: A-
