Book Review of “Dream Job” by Mickey J. Corrigan


Blurb:

After Adrianna sleeps with her hunky boss, she has to face him every day at the office of DreamCorp International. She has to test the company’s dream software with him in the office hot tub. She has to ignore the fact that his touch drives her to peaks of ecstasy she’s never experienced before. And that she’s fallen madly in love with him.

To make her life in tropical Florida even more confusing, Adrianna is plagued by disturbing dreams. Davis, one of those forgettable men she’d rather not think about anymore, a geeky guy she never should have slept with, stalks her. Davis has other ideas. He still wants her, and he plans to have her—in the murky dream world they appear to share.

Something strange is happening to Adrianna. And it’s making her wonder about her dreams. Are dreams more than a random rehash of day-to-day images, repressed sexual urges, and memory fragments? Could it be that dreams are the entry way to another world? A real world? A hyper real world?

Whether she wants to or not, Adrianna is about to find out all about the dream world. After all, she’s landed her Dream Job. And she’s in love with the man of her dreams.

Genre: Sci Fi / Short Story / Romance Suspense
My Review:

“Dream Job” takes dreams and science fiction, merges them and takes them to a completely different level altogether. The story starts in a typical manner with a passing relationship that ends abruptly and an erotic crush on the boss. But very soon, a twists comes with the concept of dream stalking. Is it really dream stalking? Or is it just the subconscious mind working over time? Very soon, as the story comes to an end, another dramatic twist comes which completely shifts the story upside down and brings another whole new concept of dream editing using technology.

Although the start is a bit confusing and soon into the story, it feels like it is going neither here nor there, that is how Mickey wants us to feel while she prepares to deliver the final punch in the end. There are some sensual scenes in the book, but they are tastefully done and does not appear vulgar or too erotic. The story, however, is not for everyone. It can only be understood and appreciated by those who like science fiction. It is slightly heavy and requires imagination to grasp the suspense and climax of the story. For others, the subtlety can be easily lost, thereby missing out on the whole point of the book. That is the only drawback of the book. Otherwise it is a bomb in a small package.
