Reviewed: Wildest Dreams by Kristen Ashley...

Wildest Dreams (Fantasyland, #1)
Seoafin "Finnie" Wilde was taught by her parents that life was meant to be lived, every breath was a treasure and to seek every adventure she could find. And she learns this lesson the hard way when they perish in a plane crash when she's fifteen. But she never forgets and when she discovers there is a parallel universe where every person has a twin, she finds a witch who can send her there so she can see her parents again and have the adventure of a lifetime.

But nearly upon arrival in the Winter Wonderland of Lunwyn, she realizes she's been played by her twin of the alternate universe and shortly finds herself walking down the aisle to be wed to The Drakkar.

Instantly thrown into inauspicious circumstances, with years of practice (she did, of course, survive that elephant stampede, if she could do that, she can do anything), Finnie bests the challenges and digs into her adventure. But as Frey Drakkar discovers the woman who is his new wife is not Princess Sjofn, a woman he dislikes (intensely) but instead, his Finnie, a free-spirit with a thirst for venture just like him (not to mention she is his destiny), without her knowledge he orders his new bride bound to his frozen world, everlasting.

I love Kristen Ashley--she is my favorite author hands down!!!! She is just an amazing writer and her books draw me in right from the start!! I am addicted and have been reading my way through her book list and every book I read I have a hard time picking my favorite!! Although since reading Motorcycle Man, I think that might be my favorite--Love Tack!! ;)
All that being said, this is the first book that I have read of Kristen Ashley's that I thought was just OK. It had some awesome moments between Finnie and Frey but I just couldn't get into the story. I LOVED LOVED LOVED Finnie and Frey together and loved the concept of the book and the secondary characters but it just wasn't my favorite. I thought the second book Golden Dynasty with Circe and Lahn was better and is my fave of the series so far. I still need to read the third book in this series.
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because lets face it this is Kristen Ashley and even one of her OK books is better then most authors!! :)
