Insomnia“Anything I did was justified.

Every night for four years, Parker has been trapped in the dreams of the last person whose eyes he looked into that day. He may look like he’s sleeping but his brain is wide awake each night, and it’s slowly killing him. Until he meets Mia. Her dreams are strangely peaceful, allowing Parker to finally get the rest he so desperately craves. But soon his need to meet Mia’s eye each day turns him into someone he can’t recognize, someone who will do anything to see into Mia’s dreams. Someone who even Parker can’t trust.


My review: Don’t read this one before you go to sleep! There are plenty of disturbing dreams that Parker is subjected to watching, and that’s before he himself transforms into a stalker and possibly worse. His downward spiral as he becomes addicted to Mia’s dreams is pretty crazy! The threat of dying if he can’t get some sleep is all he needs to justify doing whatever it takes to meet her eye. Lucky him that he has a two good friends that can hopefully keep him from doing anything drastic before it’s too late. Will he ever be free of his insomnia? Check out the book and find out!
