My to-read list is out of control and, consequently, it sometimes takes me far too long to get around to reading books that spark my interest. Dream On by Terry Tyler had been on my radar since it was published last fall. I finally got around to reading this one, and loved every word!
Dave Bentley was born to be a rock star.
He believes he’s a reincarnated Viking warrior, too…
When Dave forms his new band, Thor, there are plenty of sleepless nights for Janice, his on-off girlfriend and mother of his son. Not only must she deal with the thrills and spills of life as a hardworking single mum, but also the imminent return of singer-songwriter Ariel Swan, Dave’s one true love.
Poor Janice. Dave is still the love of her life.
Ariel Swan returns to small town life – and Dave’s heart.
She and her friend Melodie (whose ambition is to be “a celebrity”) enter a TV talent competition, so Dave and the rest of Thor decide to make the most of the opportunity for possible fame and fortune, too. This adventure brings about big changes in the lives of all of them – none of which Dave could have anticipated.
I was initially drawn to this book because of the plot’s focus on music. My two addictions in life are books and music, and I’m happiest when I can combine the two. While Dream On definitely fulfilled its promise of taking readers on a journey into the world of rock bands and music, the story was so much more than that. The characters have tremendous depth. They lead the way here, as we watch them mature and pursue their dreams.
Terry Tyler’s writing style is honest and easy to get lost in. At the end, when I read the last page, I felt like I was saying goodbye to friends. This is one of those books you experience rather than just read.
I’m excited to have Terry joining me tomorrow. I hope you’ll stop by to learn more about this book and Terry Tyler.
Thanks for reading.
