Blake Smiley searched the country for just the right place to call home. The professional triathlete has traveled the world, but Thunder Point has what he needs to put down the roots he’s never had. In the quiet coastal town he can focus on his training without distractions. Until he meets his new neighbors and everything changes.

Lin Su Simmons and her teenage son, Charlie, are fixtures at Winnie Banks’ house as Lin Su nurses Winnie through the realities of ALS. A single mother, Lin Su is proud of taking charge and never showing weakness. But she has her hands full coping with a job, debt and Charlie’s health issues. And Charlie is asking questions about his family history—questions she doesn’t want to answer.

When Charlie enlists Blake’s help to escape his overprotective mother, Lin Su resents the interference in her life. But Blake is certain he can break through her barriers and be the man she and Charlie need. When faced with a terrible situation, Blake comes to the rescue, and Lin Su realizes he just might be the man of her dreams. Together, they recognize that family is who you choose it to be.


Review: Wildest Dreams by Robyn Carr is her ninth amazing romance novel in this addictive series. The Thunder Point series collection is one that will continue to amaze readers and lure them deeply into each character’s life. Wildest Dreams has realistic family life issues and situations that will automatically open up readers to each one of the character in Robyn Carr’s latest novel. Family life is hard especially when there’s one parent doing everything for their child. Readers will fall in love with this heart melting and enriching story.

Wildest Dreams by Robyn Carr portrays the tale of how one man is looking for a place like Thunder Point to settle down like he never had. As an athlete he focuses only on his training until his neighbors give him a distraction that he can’t ignore. A mother trying to balance debt, work and her teenage son’s health issues doesn’t need an athlete to come to her and her son’s rescue. But her son Charlie enlists the help of the hot, sexy, and charming man next door. Blake Smiley sees what is going on and he can’t ignore the situation at hand. Lin Su Simmons’s determination to ignore his help only makes Blake more determined to help both the her and her son. Blake will do what he can to be the man they need but will it be enough? I loved reading this romantic story. A mother trying to play heroine and a hot stranger playing the hero and then a son who doesn’t want his mom constantly nagging him. Robyn Carr has a unique way of writing that will forever win the hearts of many. I highly recommend reading this novel of hers and rate it a five out of five stars.
