Reviews for 'Once Upon a Dream'

"The author has a lovely lyrical style of writing, which fits the musical storyline. It reads like a traditional romance, although … it begins to take on a paranormal twist partway through…"

"I love this beautifully written novel! The author has woven layers of musicality, creativity, Irish spirituality, and more into a steamy rockstar romance, creating a rich story that was extremely satisfying to read.

"There is enough mysticism here to keep me happy whilst definitely leaving me wanting more. … I want – no, I NEED – more! … A fantastic book that I thoroughly enjoyed and can't wait for the next one. Highly recommended by me."

"I have officially found a new author to add to my list of favourites. …

The story combines rockstars and Irish mythology and an

element of paranormal. What more can I ask for? Well, Book 2, actually."

In Mystic Beach,

you'll find yourself aMUSEd

and

Mysti-fied.

Aislinn Archer has created two interconnected series spanning the contemporary and paranormal fantasy, and rockstar romance genres.

The Mystic Beach Fantasy Rockstar Romances introduce readers to the six members of the chart-topping rock band aMUSEd during a summer at the beach that changes everything.

The Mystic Beach "Mysteries" delve into the odd happenings in that same small resort town, where unbelievable things happen every day, right under the unsuspecting noses of locals and vacationers alike.

"If you love PNR, Celtic folklore, or lovely HEAs, this is a hard recommend for you. Sweet, spicy, and overall fun."

A vacation, with all I ever wanted…

For your Summertime reading pleasure:

The Mystic Beach Fantasy Rockstar Romances

Hot rockers, cool music

Sun, sand, surf, steam heat

A dream, a vision

A goddess, a guitarist

Best friends, or more?

His rise to rock-and-roll stardom pulled them apart. Can a magical summer at the beach bring them back together, or even closer than they were before?

Hunter: After years of touring, it’s time to go home. Not to NYC, but to my oceanside hometown. It’s a working vacation — rest, relaxation and recording. But the label has roped me into a reality dating show. My relationship with my best friend, Brighid, has been the definition of complicated, thanks to her “visions.” Putting her in the same room with my girlfriends is a recipe for disaster — one that just might need divine intervention for our relationship to survive.

Brighid: It’s been years since Hunter has come home. While he’s been off living his rockstar life, I’ve been building a life without my best friend by my side. Now that he’s back, I just want some time together. But his reality dating show is making things more complicated than I can handle, especially when I’m the only curvy girl in a room full of models. This has disaster written all over it, and I’m not sure my visions and the goddess I serve will be enough to save us.

Two best friends.

Two soulmates.

His rock-and-roll dream has come true, but his best friend has faded into the background. With Hunter and Brighid both in Mystic Beach for the summer, it’s a chance to reconnect, or for things to get even more complicated than they were. Will it mean the end of their lifelong friendship, or will it reawaken the connection that’s existed between them for much longer?

The second novel in the Mystic Beach Fantasy Rockstar Romance series, "Dream Weaver" concludes the steamy best-friends-to-lovers romance that began in "Once Upon a Dream." It's time to return to Mystic Beach, where legendary status applies to more than the rockstars recording their new album there this summer, and where the friendship that helped spawn a soon-to-be-legendary band will need a helping hand of the divine variety if it's to survive a reality dating show. Hold onto your hats for a wild ride full of magic, music and romance, as Hunter and Brighid reconnect and discover whether they truly were meant to be more than "just friends."

Book cover for 'Once Upon a Dream' Mystic Beach Fantasy Rockstar Romance novel by Aislinn Archer, featuring long-haried man playing electirc guitar next to a microphone

'Once Upon a Dream' is the first part in a two-book duo that kicks off the Mystic Beach fantasy / rockstar romance series. Meet aMUSEd guitarist Hunter at age 15, when his life is turned upside-down and his best friend and his music are all that matter.


Brighid has loved Hunter since the day they met at age 6, and she's determined to be there for him as he survives tragedy and makes his bid for rock superstardom. But dreams of a long-ago past threaten to pull them apart, even before he's made his mark. Can their friendship survive his big break, or will it lead to something more?

'Once Upon a Dream' (available as a Kindle ebook and on Kindle Unlimited on May 13) is a steamy best-friends-to-lovers romance full of humor and drama, joy and struggle, music and more than a little magic. It will conclude with a HEA in part two, 'Dream Weaver,' available in mid-July 2022.


This first part of the duo also tells the story of the founding of aMUSEd and their rise to become one of the hottest bands in the world, and sets the stage for a summer at the beach that the six members of this chart-topping band will never forget.


With its curvy leading lady, this body-positive duo deals with issues of bullying, cyber-bullying, body-shaming and more. Its characters triumph over tragedy and societal pressures to find their way to a happily-ever-after.

Mystic Beach 1.5: Down to the Sea

Rating

"A brave, wonderful look at a woman finally allowing herself to love herself with the help of the Sexiest Man Alive."

— Kara's Books, via Amazon

Aedan “Mace” Mason is the lead singer of legendary rock band Telltale Signs and a fixture in the annual celebrity “Sexiest Guy” lists.

Brighid Weaver is the notoriously shy best friend of the guitar player for Telltale Signs opening act aMUSEd.

Mace and Brighid have nothing in common except a love of music — at least as far as anyone knows. But when a chance meeting brings the two together, secrets are discovered and sparks fly. What happens behind closed doors stays there, but this sneak-peek novel reveals what really happened when these two forces of nature collided.

Brighid: I’m the least likely woman to end up in the bedroom of the Sexiest Guy on the Planet. But my best friend, Hunter, just opened up for Mace Mason’s band, the legendary Telltale Signs, and when Mace and I met, we just clicked.

I’m shy and awkward. He’s charming and confident. And we’re both in love with other people. So why is this rock god so determined to take this curvy girl to Ireland with him? The benefits of our friendship are definitely mutual, but how far can things between us really go when we’ve both already given our hearts to someone else?

“Down to the Sea” is a steamy paranormal rockstar romance that tells the story known by only two of the characters in “Once Upon a Dream” and “Dream Weaver” — the first and second books in the Mystic Beach Fantasy Rockstar Romance series. It is an interstitial novel (Book 1.5 in the series) set between those two books and should not be read as a standalone. Anyone not wanting spoilers for portions of “Once Upon a Dream,” as well as those who’d prefer to remain in the dark about what actually happened “off-screen" in that book, may want to hold off on reading this one.

The story is told from Brighid’s point-of-view and reveals things Hunter, and the reader, were kept in the dark about during the course of events in “Once Upon a Dream.” It's full of secrets and private moments, and a little drama. It's also heavy on spirituality and personal growth, and despicts a deep and evolving friendship that holds the potential for something more. Steam factors are high for this story, Pack for cool Irish weather and one hot rockstar.

Note: A content review for this and other books in the series can be found on the author’s website at AislinnArcher.com. If you have concerns about content you may find disturbing, make sure to check the content review for the book before buying or reading.

The author will donate 20% of the royalties from the sale of this book to Solas Bhríde, a Christian Spirituality Centre in Kildare, Ireland, which welcomes "people of all faiths and of no faith, to know and be inspired by Saint Brigid, whose legacy is ever more relevant for our world today."
