Summary: Jared Padalecki is a Dreamer—a person who can insert himself into other people's dreams and manipulate them. While asleep, he can watch other people's fantasies, steal their secrets, and change their minds... all without their knowledge. For eleven years, he's been owned by Lumoinnovations, a powerful corporation that will stop at nothing to increase their influence and market share. Jared is their secret weapon, kept sound asleep and forced to Dream with people tricked into sleeping nearby while his handlers watch. When his latest assignment goes terribly wrong, resulting in the death of the subject, Jared is discarded as useless, left for dead in an alley.

He is found by Jensen Ackles, a man who is struggling to get over a failed relationship and who has almost given up hope of forging a true Bond with anyone. He has known Dreamers in the past, but none like Jared, who begins to heal under Jensen's care. When Jared truly wakes up for the first time since he was a child, it is Jensen who helps him find his way. They grow close as Jared gains confidence, and life is good... until Lumoinnovations discovers Jared is still alive and decides they want him back

Even though this story has been removed for her to get it published, it still remains one of my favorites. And I can only hope people were able to read it or get the PDF before removal so they know exactly what I mean.

She doesn't play around, as she jumps into intense plots and heavy emotions. Everything is so emotional and action packed, making you want to cry in joy or just plain cry one minute. But that's good, because it means you're connecting with a story and you're feeling emotions with the characters.

The dreaming is so surreal it's like I'm watching it happen before my eyes, the bond Jared and Jensen share is truly spectacular and amazing. Something so unique and precious that despite evil villians in this, cannot be broken. I'm so happy I was able to read this before it got removed, I feel lucky to of had. It was one long, page turner after another.
