Blurb: As dreams come alive, trouble lurks around the corner.

When Neela Raymond and three of her college girlfriends take a camping trip over spring break, they’re abducted by a group of men and held captive for a week. At least that’s what Neela’s been told—she can’t remember any details of the horrifying event. But one thing is very apparent—during that week she became pregnant. Afraid of the possibilities, Neela finds it difficult to attend classes, eat, or sleep.

When Neela finally falls asleep, she wakes in a dream world, where she finds Gabe O’Shay. Though she can’t remember him either, something in her recognizes him.

Gabe and Neela are best friends of a different sort. Created in Neela’s mind when she was just a child, Gabe has always been her dream friend, growing as she did, to eventually become the man of her dreams.

With Gabe’s help, Neela’s memory begins to return, and ugly truths emerge. Snagged in a violent, illegal scheme, Neela will have to struggle for survival. The nightmare is not over yet.

Meanwhile, Gabe has managed to find a tear between the dream world and the real world, but will he arrive too late to help his Neela?

Reviewer: Viari Rose

Barely Dreaming is a unique, engaging read. Neela has her memory wiped, the week she dreaded the most, the one her mind blocked from her memory, is the one that she needs the most. Though not all wish for her memory to be returned. A danger where you least expect it.

It is a quick read, though once you pick it up, you will not be putting it down until the last page has turned. Stephanie Beck has a style all her own, one that I quite enjoy and can't wait for her next book to come out.

Hit Amazon or Beachwalk Press to catch this novella.
