Blurb from Goodreads:Losing Christian hasn’t been easy for Eileen. But she’s not going to give up. Now she has to find a way to bring him back from the magical dream, where he was taken by Eric Lanster. Together with her friend Evan, Eileen goes to France – Meridin’s motherland, where she hopes to find out the mysteries of the dream’s magic. In a small town named Fontainebleau they meet a wizard, who turns out to know a lot of their secrets…
Determined to help Eileen, Evan agrees to complete some special dream piercing training. But he can’t even imagine what he has put himself into. The magic of dreams keeps a lot of secrets. The spells are dangerous and their consequences no one is able to predict.
Friends can become enemies…
The ones they used to call their family can become traitors…
But the ones they love will always be there to help.. 
Review: First I would like to say thanks to the awesome Diana Nixon who provided me with an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. Thanks so much!
    This books picks up right where Love Lines left off. Christian is missing and Eileen and friends are thinking of ways they can save him. Eileen and Evan travel to France but will what they do be enough to save Christian and more importantly will they be able to survive the choices they had to make to get Christian back?
    I'm not sure how I feel about Eileen in this book. For about half the book she really didn't play a role as the leading character. I understand why that happened she was lost, confused, in despair and terribly missing Christian, but I wish she would play a bigger role in the beginning of the book. Now, don't get me wrong she did play a role in some events and there were times when she went against what people told her to do. However, there were times in the book when everybody was making decisions except for Eileen. Now that aside, for the second half of the book she was amazing. Her interaction with Christian once they found him was so sweet and I just wanted to go give her a hug. She was hurting so bad. She is loyal to her friends and I loved how much she was willing to risk to give even someone as annoying as Evan alive.
   Speaking of Evan, he was probably my most favorite character. The chapters alternated between Eileen and Evan so I loved getting into Evans head. We learn more about his history and my opinion really changed about him since the last book. We see past the silly boy with almost no worries. Evan as a character is deep and he is very protective of Eileen and he would literally give up anything for her. I loved his perspective even if he knows how to get on everyone's nerves.
   Even though Christian is missing for a good half of this book he still deserves his own paragraph. I mean it's Christian he has me swooning with his smile alone. He suffered a lot but I'm happy that in the end him and Eileen are happy. They are a great couple and their love is pure and just amazing. I just wish there was more of it.
     While in the first book there was an overload of romance and just those moments that put a giant smile on your face this book had a lot more action and reveals. It focused more on the back story to the bond  and the history of the main characters. It also revealed who wants to kill Eileen and just how long they have been plotting. There are a lot of surprises in this book. My only complaint was that sometimes I got lost with all the reveals. There was a lot going on so sometimes I just got lost in all the information being thrown at me. This isn't a major issue in the book though and I mean it's pretty common sometimes the author knows where they're going and it just takes longer for the reader to catch on.
   Overall this was a good sequel that revealed a lot of much needed and important information and let us understand the characters better.

   I give this book
