- SYNOPSIS -
What if you could enter the world created inside of your favorite novel?
Close your eyes and live for a day as Elizabeth Bennet or Harry Potter?
Experience every magical sentence ever written, first hand?
Escape the ordinary and live the extraordinary!
That’s the sales pitch for Dr. Emma Hartley’s dream machine, Lucid Fantasies.
The fantastical machine transports people into their favorite novels or movies, for a day.
It allows them to live as their beloved characters did, savoring the slow kisses, frightening vampires, or magic as if it were real.
Letting them forget their worries and get lost in a world of fiction.
But that wasn’t why it was created. The dark purpose of it lies within Dr.Hartley herself.
A secret, a flaw in the machine.
One that she keeps hidden away.
For some people, your greatest fantasies are also your worst nightmares.
And the line between them is finer than we think.
My Thoughts: Seeking Heaven But Creating Hell
Tara Brown has done it again! This brilliant author has crafted a novel that is Jane Austen meets The Matrix and Inception. This story illustrates how love can be complicated but loss adds a new level making anyone search for a cure to their heartbreak.
In the year 2024, neuroengineer Dr. Emma Hartley’s has created a dream machine to allow people to live in their favorite books. Lucid Fantasies is Emma's company where she lives vicariously through her clients delight in using her machine, to escape their mundane lives and enter a world of blissful fiction. But when a client shows signs of addiction to the machine and it's escape of reality, Emma begins to question if what she created is as safe as she once believed. Looking for a flaw in the machine may prove her undoing as Emma begins to find herself questioning what is the difference between reality and fantasy.
Overall, brilliant-maddening and thought provoking read, if you've read Tara Brown novels you know this can be an accurate contradiction. The main character is a tragic hero, and yet the villain of her own making. Emma's own brilliance becomes her downfall with her trying to right wrongs and find that happiness she lost, when something new just needed to be found. My absolute favorite line from Emma was "My cheating and sneaking into heaven to retrieve my heart, ended up sending me to hell. And the reward for surviving hell was the light that had brought my heart back to life." Absolute loss can bring about absolution and a new start, and it only took Emma a whole 3 million renovation to figure out her new life. Now besides the emotional depth in this novel I must say I loved the concept of walking into your favorite novels and living amidst the story. I'd pick an Austen novel or Bronte sister book maybe even a Dickens classic. Either way probably a good thing Emma's machine doesn't exist or there'd go my savings in a few days. So if you're a fan of fiction and understanding grief makes us reach for anything to make us feel that love again then you'll be interested in Emma's journey of discovery.

- SYNOPSIS -The only thing drawn to her more than danger is him…
Danger isn’t Zoey’s middle name. But it is something she can’t forget, something she’s reminded of every time she looks in the mirror. For those reasons, Zoey has become an expert at creating the perfect illusion. Her ability to fool the eye, to create truth where there was previously none makes her the best in the business.
Working as a makeup and special effects artist for Hollywood combines her two life must-haves: her passion for makeup and hiding in plain sight. It also doesn’t hurt that she’s safe within the heavily secured and secret studio sets, away from the public eye.
Then her perfect job becomes her perfect nightmare.
Not only does her illusion slip with the blast of icy water, but it does so in front of the country’s biggest action hero and the gossipiest of celebrity TV shows.
At first, Zoey thinks danger hasn’t caught up to her and the worst thing about her mishap is the world’s most perfect man sees her in all her not-so-perfect glory.
Until a series of unexplained “accidents” begins on set.
That’s when Zoey knows.
Danger has caught up to her… and this time she fears death has, too.

2078. The Future, as it was once called...
A better time you imagine? Most would say yes.
Jordan would say they’d switched one evil for another…
Ever since the SDCT—the Scientific Department for Cancer Treatment—made a scientific breakthrough, creating a cure for cancer and therefore saving billions of lives from the cruel disease over the last few decades, the world seems to be a better place.
But the Cure came with a side effect.
The Recipients need to consume human blood along with it, and as Jordan has the rarest blood type, she needs to donate every week. To keep a tight legal structure between Recipients and the rest of the population, the FDR—Federal Division for Recipients—was created, making her job as Sergeant at the NYPD hell on earth.
The real trouble, though, begins the day she becomes burdened with a case that will force her to extend the law to its limits. Worse still—the new Lieutenant, Aiden Davis, has set an eye on Jordan, and it doesn’t help that he is an unrelenting, too-hot-to-be-allowed ex-marine and more intense than she can bear. But her past makes it impossible to get involved with anyone without resurfacing memories of the one fateful night she desperately wants to forget.
And when the one man she’d never wanted to lay eyes upon again—the man who had inflicted pain on her worse than anyone could ever imagine, the man who had drained her until there was nothing left—shows up once again, her growing attraction toward the new Lieutenant seems to be the least of her problems…
My Thoughts: There's ALWAYS a price for the Cure.
This story was not what I imagined after first reading the book blurb. However, it was definitely worth the night of sleep lost, because I just had to finish it asap! The female heroine is strong despite her past and grows stronger with the aid of a loving man.
Set in the year 2078, the world is finally free of Cancer thanks to Cure. There is a price for taking the Cure, those who are recipients must drink blood human from donors. The FDR – Federal Division for Recipients – was created to supply recipients with the Cure and have the rest of the populace donate blood regularly. Sergeant Jordan Lively, is made weekly donor due to her blood type being AB negative the rarest type. For Jordan the FDR is nothing but a drain on her life and job, all she wants to do is make sure the evil and scum out in the world is put behind bars where they belong. Jordan's specializes in Rape and murder cases choosing to work alone. Her past is what motivates her drive for the victims, but when Jordan's finds herself in trouble the new Lieutenant, Aiden Davis, may be the person to help her heal and fight her worst nightmare.
Overall, great new futuristic story! The concept for this novel felt like Soylent Green meets iRobot. Thinking of a world without cancer would be absolutely amazing. So on a darker note having a Cure that turns out to be a semi-villain for this novel, was a great twist. Even the whole donor and recipient thing was intriguing, especially for me since as a person with a rare blood type I would sooo not enjoy this world. Now one of my favorite features of this book was how the author approached Jordan's venture into dating Aiden. Jordan was a victim of a brutal assault (as seen in the graphic prologue) and for her to ease into having any sort of a relationship was wonderful to see, because I've read one to many books where the girl meets a guy and just hops right into bed like it's easy and in reality it takes time and trust. I also just really liked the male lead, Aiden, and his easy presence in Jordan's life, wish I had someone who just supported me so easily with my craziness. So if you're ready for a future world where the world is a balance of donors, recipients, cops, and mystery, than this story will intrigue you.
Elodie lives in the outskirts of Vienna, Austria, with her longtime boyfriend. She is not a native English speaker, but that doesn’t keep her from putting her fantasies on paper in that beautiful language. Never trained as a professional writer, she started writing as a hobby, which quickly grew into an obsession.
Elodie has an unhealthy addiction to chocolate cookies – which is why she forces herself to go to the gym twice a week – has a weakness for electronic music, and in her spare time she can be found exploring movie databases for the latest DVD releases.
Additionally, she’s busy with reading and writing and gets easily lost in Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Erotica. In her own works, she likes to create rich dystopian stories which consist of bold heroines, sexy guys, and hot romances.
Her biggest idol is the British author, Stephanie Hudson, author of the epic saga “Afterlife”. Elodie secretly hopes to get the chance to meet with Stephanie one day, and talk to her about how she created the greatest story ever written.
The only thing she hates about writing is that she loses all the precious time she could spend reading the hundreds of books that are still on her to-read list.
