I hate not finishing books it really bugs me to leave things unfinished. I am a little OCD and not finishing a book is something I struggle to tolerate. But, there are always exceptions and Dream Nights with the CEO was one of them. I got to the mid-way point of this book and had to stop.

So why couldn’t I finish? At first I thought this was a standard contemporary romance and I quite enjoyed the first few chapters but then things took a turn for the bizarre and whatever I had liked about this book disappeared.

Firstly, there were loads of and loads of dream segments. Normally I don’t mind a few pages here and there of characters dreams but there were huge blocks of it in this. The big problem with the dreams is that it was where the characters seemed to build most of their attraction/chemistry which didn’t work. It didn’t help that they were also stopping flying runaway trains and being chased by blobs yet still found the time to get naked with each other. Add some strange ghosts into the mix and things became really quite strange. I lost interest in this when the characters (who had been avoiding being overly friendly with each other) woke up naked in bed together away a night of acting out their dreams without realizing it. It was such a cheat and I hated that the characters first intimate moments happened with neither of them remembering it.

What didn’t help this book were the boring characters. They were two of the least interesting people I have come across in a book. Neither Megan nor Wyatt had any personality or charm. I was not interested in them or this book at all.
