Here’s what some reviewers have said that made me cry:

“LJ Evans is a unicorn author. You know the kind - they only come along once in a blue moon, but every word they write is pure magic. Every single one of her books brings all the feels and more, and Guarded Dreams is no exception…This is by far one of the best books of 2019.” – Novel Momma

Where in the world have I been for this to be my first time reading LJ Evans! She totally nailed it with this one… I have laughed, cried and completely fallen in love with Ava and Eli. – Curly Hair Lass

Have you ever listened to your favorite song, that you have been obsessed with for years and then the artist strips the song down, doing an acoustic version, that blows your mind? It's like hearing the song for the first time, as it's becoming a masterpiece in their hands. This is how LJ Evans, develops her characters. It's a beautiful masterpiece in her hands. This is not your typical romance. -Luv2Read Romance

This Taylor Swift GIF is exactly how I feel at the moment. All bubbly happiness. Speaking of Taylor, DID YOU SEE HER “ME!” video on the 26th? It was all cotton candy sweet colors and happy music. That’s exactly how I feel today. Cotton candy good. Maybe I’ll go eat some truffles with it being National Truffle Day and all. If you are in my FaceBook group, you know that I’ve been crazily obsessed with all the laughable (and sometimes serious) national days lately. I might need help for it.

Once upon a summer, a boy unexpectedly meets a girl at the beach. Their bodies and souls know what their brains do not. They are meant to be one. But…

𝓔𝐋𝐈 dreams about being a US Coast Guard.

𝓐𝐕𝓪 dreams about being a country music star.

Those dreams send them careening in different directions, and their summer love story is left as a wish that never came true.

Four years later, Eli's Coast Guard career is threatened, and Ava's dreams are shadowed by her past, just as fate brings them together once more in New York City.

As their lives start to crumble, they find the possibility of a second chance in each other. If they’ll only listen to what their souls are whispering and realize that, sometimes, the best dream to come true is simply to have loved.

Inspired by Luke Bryan's "Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset" comes a novel from award-winning author, LJ Evans, about all the ways dreams can be lost and remade, and how love can guide you through.
