Review--Lay Me Down by Erin Kellison

Able to navigate sleep’s vast dreamwaters, wild child Maisie Lane makes easy money as a courier delivering packages from one dream to another. So what if her employers are on the shadier side of the law? Her sister thinks she’s living for the pleasure of the moment. Pleasure is involved—why shouldn’t it be?—but every step Maisie takes is part of a careful plan. That is, until she crosses into a dream so evil, she has no choice but to run.

Special Agent Steve Coll is tasked to recruit Maisie for Chimera, the organization that polices shared dreams. At first he’s taken with her funny and carefree spirit, then brought to his knees by her tough and passionate soul. Touching her is forbidden ecstasy, but Steve can’t resist breaking the rules with Maisie. A darkness is gathering, evil preparing to strike, and only Maisie stands between it and innocent lives. No matter what happens, Steve won’t let her stand alone—he’ll die before he leaves her side.

Fans of paranormal romance and bad boys, get ready for a dark, sexy plunge into fantasy and desire. The Reveler Series is set in a contemporary world in which people can indulge in Rêve, or shared dreaming—a popculture phenomenon sweeping the world. Imagine being able to fall asleep at night, only to wake in a dream world, one in which you are lucid and in control—where you can be anything you want to be and do anything you like. But you must be careful…dreaming can be as dangerous as it is seductive.

I received this ebook from the publishers via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, I was in no way compensated for this review.

Erin Kellison's Lay Me Down is the second installment in her Reveler novella series and it was just as amazing as the first one! Moving forward with characters we've previously met, Maisie and Steve take the spotlight in this one as the two try to figure out what's going on with the "bad guys" who had hired Maisie to make her deliveries in the past.

Maisie is a far cry different from her sister Jordan, who also makes an appearance in this one with Rook. She's a bit more wild, as Steve describes her. For we get Steve and Maisie's point of view the most. There are segments from a few other characters, but not nearly as much.

Steve on the other hand remains to be a man of mystery. We get a tiny bit of insight to his character and background info, but towards the end, we have quite a lot of new info and I don't know what to do with it! Steve is just mystery personified! Hopefully those answers will come along eventually. I mean, we get an idea of why Steve's so mysterious but I feel like we don't fully understand the man completely.

Some of the events from last time work their way into this story as well, such as Blackburne still being trapped in the Scrape, his father is also still missing.

Maisie and Steve learn just what exactly Maisie was delivering on her last "job" and it is a total game changer. For now the two will have to devise a plan in order to find out who the real bad guy is and stop him before Maisie or someone else innocent gets hurt.

And naturally, there's romance between Maisie and Steve, since this is a Paranormal Romance novella! But yet, we still have a nice buildup to the romance. The two weren't jumping each other's bones right away! Granted, the romance does happen fast, but that's normal, even in a novella where there has to be a resolution of some sort, and it's typical of Paranormal Romance too!

I truly hope we're not done with these characters we have met yet, for these novellas seem to give us new characters each time with the old ones still returning with a cameo. But I feel like their stories just aren't done yet. There's still so much we have yet to resolve with what they were all dealing with. It's definitely going to be a fun novella series to read! And the next one will come out on Monday, June 9! Yay for a short wait!

Overall Rating 4/5 stars
