Dr. Liam Mackenzie has it all—a job he loves, a family he adores, and a wife he can’t live without… until he wakes up from a coma and realizes his perfect life only exists in his dreams. Now, he has a dilemma: risk his years’ long friendship for love everlasting or ignore what his heart and soul want?

Samantha Johnson is more than a great Nurse Practitioner; She’s a great best friend. When her longtime friend awakens from a coma, she knows in her heart, she’s where she’s supposed to be, but there’s one major problem—she’s engaged to another man.

Will their sudden realization that they’re perfect for each other cause irrevocable damage to their friendship or will it lead them to a long-awaited happily ever after?

Living a perfect life with your wife, only to find out it’s not real, that it only exists in your mind. Just a Dream tells the story of Liam, who finds out Samantha is just a very good friend, and not his wife. But maybe his dream can become their reality… I love Liam and Samantha, and their cute story.

Liam and his wife Samantha have a great life, but when Liam wakes up from a coma, it turns out to be dream. A very realistic dream that Liam can’t forget. In real life Samantha is engaged, and Liam is a single guy, but they are close friends and both work in the same hospital. Liam is struggling with the feelings he now has for his friend, and Samantha is confused with the whole situation. Yes, she loves her fiancé, but knowing Liam’s dream makes her thinking. Two friends and sudden feelings, what will happen…

Oh oh Liam, poor guy. In his dream he had a good life with Samantha, but when he wakes up all is very different. Yes, he and Samantha know each other very well, but they are just friends. He is a smart guy and knows what’s real and what’s not, but he can’t forget the feelings and details from his dream. I admire Liam’s strength; he doesn’t go after Samantha full force to make her truly his, instead he leaves her alone to let her make her own decisions. Samantha is in a hard place as well. She loves her fiancé, but secretly Liam has always been more then just a friend. I feel so sorry for her, choosing between two good men is heartbreaking. I love that Samantha finds her way to Liam; they are an amazing couple.

Just a Dream is Amanda Faye’s debut book, and I love it. It’s a sweet, simple story about two friends who turn out to be so much more then friends; they are soulmates. I love how the author has written the main couple; mature, realistic characters who think before they act. The story might be too sweet for some readers, but sometimes sweet is what I need after some dark, intense reads. Just a Dream is also the first book in the ‘Doctor Drama Series’, I can’t wait what the future books will bring.
