Summary:  Rachel knows Ben’s keeping a secret but she can’t help falling in love with him.

Rachel Monteiro wanted to be classy and confident like the leading ladies in her grandma’s old movies. Instead, it’s always the same awkward song and dance with anybody she meets. Her insides turn to iron and words bolt from her lips. The one exception is Ben Telles, Rachel’s new neighbor.

With a horde of friends and no fear of taking center stage, Ben’s a natural born leading man. His enigmatic smile and relentless pursuit both disturb and delight Rachel. What starts as a simple case of “opposites attracting” quickly blossoms into a whirlwind romance. For the first time life is as close to perfect as she could imagine.

Rachel should be having the time of her life. But she isn’t.

Ever since her gossip-loving neighbor disappeared, Rachel's dreams have turned to nightmares of her neighbor's bloody murder. To make things worse she often sees herself or Ben at the killing end of the murder weapon. Rachel knows it’s crazy to blame Ben – or herself. If only she could ignore all the leads… or know for a fact what’s the difference between hallucination and reality.

Review:  I received this novel from Vivian in exchange for my honest opinion, and I enjoyed it. This novel tells the story of Rachel Monteiro, who longs to be like a leading lady from old films. When she meets her new neighbor, Ben Telles, it's almost as if she has found her leading man. Things heat up when the author begins throwing in twists and turns of Rachel having dreams about Ben and herself being responsible for her neighbor's murder. It was a little hard for me to get into this novel at first, but as I kept reading on, I became more and more intrigued with it. Overall, this novel was a good read, and I'd definitely recommend this novel to friends.
