      3.5 starsTE: I won this book in ebook format through theEarly Reviewers program.This is a very cute book. I read it in one sitting. Maya is a lovable character. She remembers experiencing love during her childhood as a foster child and believes that every child should know love. To that end, she's fostering her sister's young child while her sister is in prison, is close to term on her own pregnancy oh yeah, and she's running a program for children in a building that the mayor wants to tear dow [...]

      Impossible dreams come trueThis plot certainly deserves 5 Stars. Right from the beginning, you are drawn into the mystery of Cleo and Maya and who were their grandparents. Axell and Maya 's meeting was intriguing as he tried to figure her out. The scene when he delivers Alexa was realistic and added to rounding out his character. Maya 's love of teaching and ability to reach children come across loud and clear. Even though Maya did not have a great childhood since her parents had died when she w [...]

      I really enjoyed this story between Maya and Axell. And I loved the story written inside as well that was about their grandparents. Naturally, Axell is used to his life being normal and all corners squared, however, his daughter is not speaking. Once he enrolls her in Maya's afterschool program, she seems to come out of that a little and lights up. Maya is all colorful, bright, never for a moment still and can't get anything together. The only thing she wants in life is to make everyone feel lov [...]

      Pregnant Maya Alyssum comes to Wadeville, NC to take care of her nephew and manage her sister’s shop while she is in jail. Maya and a silent partner also open an after-school program called Impossible Dreams, which she hopes to expand to full-time. However, the school sits on land the mayor wants for a road to a proposed shopping center. Widower Axell Holm is indebted to the school and its unusual teacher because they have gotten his silent daughter to open up for the first time since her moth [...]

      I had the book in my shelf since 2nd year hs. I remember well because I bought it from my allowance. I would include it in my read-a-thon entries but truthfully, I never read it fully. When I saw it again, dusty and all, I decided to try again.It's a positive book, a proof that no dream is destined to end in a graveyard.The romance part did not at all disturb me as it was told in a descriptive yet not with too cheesy adjectives. The involvement of children and the goal to help them added wholeso [...]

    9. Sarah on said:

      After reading the first chapter or so I was tempted to put the book down. Maya is super new-agey and really just didn't make a lot of sense. But I'm glad I kept reading. The plot was maybe a little bit more complex than it needed to be, too many pieces & mysteries that didn't seem well enough flushed out. The diary pieces interspersed also made no sense under 3/4 of the way through the book so I think they lost some of their value. Characters were interesting, even if not entirely relatable. [...]

      I loved when Axell lost his patience I found it sexy, "grabbing her arm, he pulled her hard against him, despite her twisting protest. To hell with arguing. He was ready for the next part. Past ready. "Yell at me if you want, but don't run away, dammit!" Axell sure can become a wild man at times, "garters. Damn, you wore garters. I want to see" He uttered a guttural groan as she stroked him. "Maya-a-a ah-h" She thought he tore her panties in two— her stoic businessman reverted to uncivilized N [...]

      – Patricia Rice’s books have a complexity thats seldom found in today’s market. Her characters have depth and her work isn’t a race to the finish. Rice’s plots unfold naturally and she doesn’t fall back on cliches and exploding buildings/cars to move it forward. If you’re looking for a fast read, Impossible Dreams isn’t for you. But if you’re looking for a contemporary romance with a wealth of emotion and three-dimensional characters then this book is for you. ~ Renee, ireadrom [...]

      Very well written. This appears to have been well researched. The author dealt with some hard hitting issues in book one of this series. The unfortunate shortfalls of our child social services is well observed through the eyes of young adults who have been through the system as well as children effected by it in the story. Other issues face our lady but kindness and love persevere.

    13. Kat on said:

      Loved it. Consistent intriguing characters with a good story line that kept me (virtually) turning the page. Love the contemporary take on marriage of convienece for really levitate reasons. The struggles and the HEA made sense based on the characters. The quotes at the beginning of each chapter were quite funny and insightful.

    14. Tammy on said:

      This book is a story about life coming full circle and how relationships can start in the most unlikely of places. The story takes you through the full gamut of emotions - love, loss, happiness, sadness, and everything in between. If you are a fan of Sharon Sala's "The Gamblers Daughters series, you will love this book.

    15. TRACI on said:

      Although it started out slow, this book was an okay read. A marriage of convenience that eventually works out in the end with a lot of twists and turns involving the married couple. I enjoyed it but if it wouldn't have started out so slow, I would have given it more than two stars.

    16. Donna Murnane on said:

      Through twists and turns comes a good storyThe story was full of ups and downs that made me want to finish reading the book to find out how the love story would work out. I also loved the chapter headings. Funny and twisted. ;-)

    17. Emily Higgins on said:

      Maya Alyssum has a dream of opening a school where all children can excel. Axel Holm is a straight laced restaurant owner who expects everything to be in order. Merging the two personalities makes a delightful story.

    18. Ballerina60 on said:

      a super-duper story! the book is worth the read just for the chapter headings! my favorite is the "forward": Meddle not with dragons, for thou art crunchy and good with catsup! Axell is really a pretty typical guy in a lot of ways. there was plenty of plot. yeah, read this!

    19. Crystal Yawn on said:

      This is a wonderful story about opposites attract. And how different personalities handle adversity. Maya is a airhead pacifist who dreams big and avoids conflict. Axell is strong and silent who has to be in charge. The 2 together make an excellent team. Great story with ample love and drama.

    20. Lorraine Anton on said:

      GreatMaya meets Axell. He has a daughter She has a nephew and is pregnant. They have a marriage of convenience. A lot of twist and turns in this one. See how it turns out.
