Synopsis: Former bakery employee Brenda Nevins is now a successful romance author of the Yolanda’s Yummery book series. Best friend and agent, Samantha Ho, has gotten her a movie deal and a reality TV show about her forthcoming bakery, named after her bestselling series. The frosting on Brenda’s cake is her engagement to handsome and sexy Warren Stillman, a Beverly Hills attorney.

Complications arise whenever any communication she sends or receives turns into snippets of a cheesy science fiction story. Her agent, fiancé, movie producer and anyone else on the receiving end thinks she’s playing a stupid joke. Brenda is trying to track down the person responsible for hijacking her career, her finances, and even her fiancé.

For Brenda, finding the culprit is necessary to make sure that her dreams aren’t derailed. In the process, she wonders if her aspirations are as dreamy as she’s imagined?

Review: 3.5 stars - I loved the idea of this book when I was originally offered it for review. I love sci-fi and I did wonder how two normally contrasting genres could be combined in a light, easy reading way.

Brenda receives a few strange texts and emails; at first she shrugs it off as a prank. However, when every piece of correspondence between Brenda and her agent Samantha gets turned into a double entendre-filled science fiction story she has to get to the bottom of it.

Brenda Nevins is the renowned best selling author of the “Yolanda’s Yummery” series. I would love to read more about Yolanda’s Yummery. After reading about it in Sweet Dreams I would love to read more and I wonder if the author has considered making it a series of its own.

Brenda has the best of everything, such as make up and clothes, and everything is described in great detail. This makes me think that Brenda is a bit of a snob and that maybe her success has gone to her head. I do wonder if Lisa Maliga has written it this way, so the reader understands how much Brenda stands to lose if things don’t go well for her.

I liked how the story ended. I’m glad things go alright in the end for Brenda as she has a rough time during the rest of the pages.
