3.5 Stars

This Christmas season, Madison Goldwin is freshly divorced and has moved back to her hometown… and in with her parents. To say that things aren’t going according to plan is a vast understatement. And to make matters even worse… who should she keep running into? Only the first boy to break her heart, Porter Kelly…

Porter is beyond surprised to learn of Madison’s recently single status, and while he has always wanted another chance with her, he decides to use this opportunity to push her further and further away…


If Only in my Dreams was the sweet and healing story of two young, former lovers who find their way back into each other arms. Madison and Porter once shared a secret romance which broke Madison’s heart with each and every snub she endured. But once they find a way to get over their shared past mistakes, they may finally have a chance at the everlasting happiness that both of them have always deserved…

This was a really great read! Madison was a lovely character who has always wanted to find the kind of love like her parents have always shared. But instead of finding love, security and acceptance, she has had her heart broken twice by the men that she trusted. I adored when Madison finally stood up for herself, it was a long time coming, and her strong personality deserved to shine through. I really wanted to love Porter, but even though he had his reasons for pushing Madison away, it really bothered me how many times she let him get away with his bad behavior… especially when they were younger. 

I enjoyed this Christmas themed, and super festive read! The second chance romance was heartwarming and engaging, and I can never resist a little enemies to lovers storyline!!

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
