Review: Pleasures of the Night by Sylvia Day

Sylvia Day, writer of the Crossfire series ( Bared to You, etc), brings us a paranormal romance with a very interesting proposal. This is not about demons, or vampires, or even werewolves. One of the reasons I liked this book a lot, although it is far from her best work, is precisely the way she brought us her aliens. Pleasures of the Night is about this woman, , who has suffered all her life from insomnia and night terrors. She has never really gotten a good night’s peaceful sleep. Oddly, at first, I felt strangely connected to this character for a few reasons. She is a veterinarian and is quite a normal, hard-working woman ( a plus for me, I’m not a fan of the too-good virginal ones) who has very weird dreams.
In this book, dreams are portrayed as another realm, kind of a parallel plane of existance which is used by aliens from another galaxy. Cool fact from the book: Aliens travel by riding meteorites.
In her dreams, she meets the man of her dreams ( pardon the redundance, but this was meant both ways) they fall in love, except she never expected these two worlds to get mixed up in one another.
As I said, this is not Sylvia Day’s best writing , but nevertheless is a very interesting, refreshing and sexy read. There is quite a lot of steamy sex scenes in this one, all very well written.
I recommend this book if you want a refresher from the usual romance novels.
