Whoever said opposites attract must have been talking about Kate Marlowe and Barrett Fox. Her life's work was bringing people together, and his was tearing them apart. The pretty wedding consultant and the sexy divorce lawyer should have hated each other on sight, and—well, they did. But from that first moment, when Cupid's arrow struck the unsuspecting Barrett—literally—there was something between them that just wouldn't go away.

There was no way it would work, of course. They both knew that. She was as romantic as they come, born to wear white lace and to carry a bouquet of roses with baby's breath, while he'd learned the hard way not to believe in love—or much of anything else.

It was impossible, completely impossible...wasn't it?

Falling in love has never been so much fun! From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author comes the latest novel in her series of sweet romances about a group of friends who start out as bridesmaids and end up as brides. You won't want to miss a single one of these sweet, charming romances!

I did not like the narration style in this book. Also found some story mistakes like going to court for a case on a Saturday.

This is the first book in the series that I’ve read and found it to be an enjoyable read. It is a sweet, heartwarming story of opposites (a romantic and cynic) attracting. Kate and Barrett do make the perfect couple and I loved how their relationship blossomed. If you’ve read the entire series, it wraps it up quite nicely. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book.

I loved this story! I knew from the moment that Kate met Barrett that I was going to enjoy it. Who wouldn't when their story begins with life size cupid statues and cupids arrow? Barrett is a jaded divorce lawyer and Kate is a wedding planner. Somehow they make it work...and it's entertaining every step of the way! Another great read by Barbara Freethy. *I received an ARC*

Lovely way to end the series. While this is part of the Bachelors & Bridemads series, it can be read alone. Kate is the last one in her close group of friends to be single. She is looking for her forever marriage since she was raised by her grandparents who set an amazing example of what marriage should be. Her job as a wedding planner helps her make every couple’s wedding special. Enter Barrett - the landlord in the building where her business is located. Barrett needs to relocate his office due to damage in his current location. Sparks fly from the moment they met. How ironic - Kate is a wedding planner with offices on the second floor, while Barrett is a divorce lawyer n the first. One deeply romantic, the other deeply cynical. Loved how even though they both acknowledge that they don’t work out with their differing views, each of them is drawn closer to each longer on their “non dates” and discover just how much they are right for each other. Loved this sweet romance.

This is the sweet, funny, and romantic story about Kate Marlow, who’s a wedding consultant, and Barrett Fox, a divorce lawyer. Kate has made it her mission in life to help every bride find her happily ever after. She’s always loved weddings and working with brides. Kate’s a true romantic. She rents space in a beautiful old Victorian house on the second floor that happens to be owned by the Fox family. Barrett Fox’s current office has water damage and he needs to move to another office space so he temporarily decides to move into the first floor of Kate’s building. He shows up earlier than Kate was expecting him to and he ends up getting struck by Cupids arrow! (Seriously). Needless to say, Barrett didn’t find it as funny as Kate did. Barrett is anything but romantic. With the example that his parents have set, he doesn’t have much faith in happily ever afters. I really enjoyed watching the relationship between Kate and Barrett fall into place. Even though they are complete opposites, with Kate working to bring couples together and Barrett working to take them apart, somehow they find a way to make it work. As they spend more time together, Kate learns things about Barrett that let her see that he’s really not such a bad guy. And Kate shows Barrett that there’s nothing wrong with a little romance. This was the final book in the Bachelors and Bridesmaids series and it was a great way to wrap it up! This book can be read as a standalone, but once you read one, you’ll want to read them all!

Kate Marlow is a wedding planner and total romantic. She is the last single woman in the group of friends who met in college and vowed to be there for each other on their respective wedding days. Kate has planned all of her friends’ weddings. She is beginning to think that she will be single forever. Enter Barrett Fox, a handsome, sexy divorce lawyer who moves his office into her office building. Barrett has a failed marriage behind him and has no plans to marry again in the future. Ms. Freethy’s latest book in the Bachelors and Bridesmaids series is another sweet love story. I hated to see this series end. I enjoyed reading it and recommend it to anyone who enjoys the romance genre.

Beautiful Love Story. I am so happy that Kate found her happily ever after. I have enjoyed reading all of the girls stories; and I am very sad the series have come to an end.

What a wonderful story of Kate and Barrett. She's a wedding planner that is working on the double wedding of 2 of her best friends from college. There's 8 of them and after these 2 marry she's the last single one. Enter Barrett, who is moves into the office downstairs with his law practice...divorce attorney. Oh and his family is also the owners of the building! Kate wants the happily ever after but Barrett plans to never marry again. His parents are divorced and have many marriages between them, Kate's never married but her grandparents have been married over 50 years so she has faith that long lasting love can happen. A fun story that will make you laugh and want to yell at both of them to figure it out! I read an ARC and am voluntarily leaving my review.

ARC for honest review with no compensation. 4.5 stars Dreaming Of You is book 7 in the Bachelors and Bridesmaids series by Barbara Freethy. If you haven’t read the other books in this series fret not as you will get caught up with the other couples too. Each book is a standalone but reading the others will create even more drama, laughter, tears and HEA’s!! Kate Marlow is the last girl standing and looking to find what her other friends have found. She’s the one that brings people together, planning their wedding and making it all about the couples. When a new tenant moves into her building and she discovers he not only owns the building, he’s a divorce attorney and doesn’t believe in Happily Ever After....that is until the Cupid’s arrow strikes Barrett Fox literally (a cardboard cutout)...there is a chemistry between them that each can’t define but it continues to draw them together. Will Barrett open his heart to find Kate is what has been missing in his life or will he push her away and keep his life lonely and cold??

Another great book! I thought the characters were great, especially Kate’s grandparents. I enjoyed the humor, with the part about Cupid’s arrow being my favorite. It was heartwarming to see Barrett helping Kate with her wedding favors and also with her grandparents. As always, it was fun to catch up with characters from previous books. Dreaming of You is a warm, funny and romantic story. It’s a perfect book for Valentine’s Day!

Perfect ending book for the Bachelors & Bridesmaid Serie. How does a wedding planner & a divorce attorney two opposites of pole of marraige manage to work in the same building. Kate & Barrett are very likeable people to me although one Being Barrett was once married and divorced and vows to never marry again. And there is Kate the last single female in her group of girl friends from college still single. So far she has planned all her other friends marriage and wants a wedding of her own in the very traditional way. Although the two get off to a bad start. Very slowly they begin first friendship which develops into more. In order to find out how and the obstacles that try to keep them from devoping more purchase this sweet romantic story. And if yet to read the other 6 books of the series you definitely will read them now. Barbara Freethy again weaves a very good story.

A really sweet story with likeable, truly decent main characters. All nicely tied up in the end. The good and bad of family dynamics and underlying everlasting friendship made for an enjoyable read.
Grinandstampit1 More than 1 year ago
I really enjoyed this book. It was unique in how Barrett and Kate met and then how their relationship developed when they were on two different ends of the spectrum. It was entertaining because they also seemed to have careers that were in conflict with each other. This book was well written and I loved the supporting characters and the recap of how they all met. This was a lighthearted and entertaining read. Barbara Freethy is a true talent to give readers what they want. I highly recommend this delightful read.

DREAMING OF YOU is the perfect ending to Barbara Freethy’s Bachelors and Bridesmaids series. Our heroine, Kate Marlowe, has planned the weddings of each of her six friends from college. She’s sure there will not be a wedding anytime soon for her. But that’s not how it works in the world of Bachelors and Bridesmaids. Like her sisters of the heart, Kate finds love with Barrett Fox. (No, that’s not a spoiler… you wouldn’t read this book if you didn’t want an HEA, would you?) A spoiler would be telling you any more about great journey that gets Kate and Barrett together, which I won’t do! We also get to check in with all of our previous couples. Full disclosure: I had only read Kiss Me Forever, No. 1 in the series. But I quickly snatched up the other 5 books and read them in order before starting DREAMING OF YOU. You don’t have to do that, but it will add to the fun. If you’re looking for a sweet romance (no bedroom scenes but great kisses), a quick read and delightful characters you wish were part of your own life, grab DREAMING OF YOU — and check out the rest of Bachelors and Bridesmaids.

I like books that get my interest in the first few pages. Barbara Freethy does this in every book she writes. Dreaming of You starts off with a bang or rather a crash. Kate is a wedding planner and when her landlord, Barrett, moves his divorce law practice into the downstairs office one night he runs in to her 6 foot Cupid statues. What a way to start a wonderful love story. Opposites attract they say, although they might fight that attraction. I really enjoyed the Bachelors & Bridesmaids series and the conclusion was as good as the first book of the series.

Being hit, literally, with a 6-foot-tall Cupid’s arrow is probably not the best way to begin a relationship. In the conclusion to the Bachelors & Bridesmaids saga by Barbara Freethy, this inauspicious beginning is the way divorce lawyer Barrett and wedding planner Kate meet. Although they’re on opposite sides of the marriage/divorce issues, they still feel a spark when they see each other. Kate wants a forever love, and Barrett is just jaded enough to think there is no such thing. Enter Kate’s best friends and their HEA’s. Add in Kate’s grandparents with their decades long love affair. Counter all that with Barrett’s multi-marriage parents and Kate’s no marriage parents and you’ll be wondering if these two can ever have the happily ever after they so deserve. A wonderful conclusion to the Bachelors & Bridesmaids continuity, with a fitting wrap up of what’s going on with the other couples we’ve come to know in this fun series.

DREAMING OF YOU Kate, the last one still single of the tight knit friends of college. Now busy planning the weddings of Jessica and Maggie, a double wedding, and on Valentine day. Back at her office, informed of a new tenant will be down below on Monday, which was now filled with mannequins for a wedding. Hearing a crash she hurries downstairs, meeting the new tenant and owner in a designer suit, covered in dust. He wasn’t pleased nor sense of humor with the cupid from one of them. Meeting Barrett again, he had been married, his ex was more into the planning of the big wedding then being married. Now wanting wall paper going upstairs to her office removed, he feels it is inappropriate of happy days. When his clients come for divorce. He is turning her ordinary life upside down. This was a delight to read, funny, I loved the plot. You got caught up in the magic of weddings. GivenARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.

A sweet easy read. Romance, love and a very minute amount of tribulation, wrap this story into one relaxing read. Grab your favorite libation, put your feet up and enjoy this one. Good read.

Freethy proves her versatility with every tale she pens. She can thrill with chillers, bewilder with mysteries and touch the heart with romance. Dreaming of You is a feel good story wrapped in an emotional whirlwind. Barrett and Kate are the best and worst of what love has to offer. She's a dreamer, who wears her heart on her sleeve. He's a realist, haunted by the heartaches of his past. They shouldn't make sense, but are a perfect fit of the heart. For stories packed with emotion and imaginatively stunning, turn to Barbara Freethy.
