A new contemporary series—Impossible Dream—celebrating hope, love, and the magic of the human spirit!

Five long-time girlfriends—known as The Inseparables—find themselves in their thirties and battling disillusion. Tangled up in real-life troubles and stifled aspirations, they’re ready to ditch their deepest desires .. until they stumble upon the peculiar matchmaking company, “Impossible Dream,” where they each find the rare opportunity to make seemingly impossible dreams come true.

A series of modern-day fairytales beginning with . . . Beauty & the Biker


Miracles happen every day. Even in Nowhere, Nebraska. That’s Bella Mooney’s philosophy and she’s sticking to it! A children’s librarian who writes fairy tales on the side, Bella has earned the reputation of fanciful Pollyanna. No surprise that she applied for her “ideal man” via, an Internet company designed to make dreams come true. However, even whimsical Bella has real-life issues, forcing her to take drastic actions in order to spin her dad’s life (and in turn her own) for the better. As fate draws her into the troubling world of her new neighbor—a cynical biker with a scarred soul and checkered past—Bella finds herself falling for the most unlikely man, twisting her perceptions of true love and testing her faith in dreams.


Expect nothing. Anticipate the worst. As a detective with the Chicago Police Department, Joe Savage witnessed heinous crimes and acts of cruelty on a daily basis, obliterating his faith in humanity. When a personal vendetta cost him his job and a quirky inheritance offered escape, Joe packed it in and steered his Harley toward a small town bordering Tornado Alley and the Twilight Zone. Where better to lose himself than Nowhere? Resigned to a dark and lonely existence, Joe’s life is suddenly shoved into the sunshine when his eccentric neighbor offers him a chance he can't refuse, especially after her kiss of hope rekindles his dead heart. Inspired and challenged by Bella’s infectious optimism, Joe dares to make the impossible come true.

My Review
3.5 Not So Impossible Dream Stars

Beauty and the biker by Beth Ciotta is book #1 in The Impossible Dream Series. This is the first book I have read by this author and I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review so here goes....

This book is not exactly what I was expecting!!!

This is a sickly sweet romance where the female lead is literally nicknamed princess rainbow because she's actually that sweet and adorable!!!!

Bella I would guess at being one of the most wholesome and nicest characters I've ever read about!!!

She's the all American girl, she doesn't swear, she works with children at s library and dresses up as a sparkly princess to encourage children to read more!!! I swear she actually used the phrase 'Gosh Darn' more than once!!!!

Being truthful I'm not sure if I loved her or if I'm just horrified that someone this nice exists even in someone's imagination!!!!

I love the fairytale aspect because that's basically what this book is a grownups fairytale where the princess gets her happily ever after with her Prince Charming who in this story is Joe!!!

Let's talk about Joe for a minute in comparison with Bella he does start off as a bit of an arsehole but that lasts all of about 3 minutes then he falls hook line and sinker for the queen of sparkles and unicorns.

I loved the diversity in the inseparables but I do think its s bit sad that s group of 30 something women actually refer to themselves as the inseparables lol!!

But regardless of that Chrissy, Angel, Georgie, Bella, Emma and the long distance member Sinjun are a very sweet group of women who share a long standing history and friendship and I enjoyed the connection that they all shared!!

The sex is sort of glossed over which is a shame as I think it would have been fairly steamy had the author decided to get graphic!!!

I think I know who runs Impossible but I’m not going to spoil it lol!

The book dabbled into the dark on occasion went Joe was talking but it mainly focussed on the warm and fuzzy side of life.

I was hoping for a bit of action too and the author brilliantly built the tension till I was patiently waiting for it all to kick off. I really wanted Joe to fill his knight in shining armour quota of the fairytale but it all fizzled to nothing and I for one was GUTTED!!!

This is an incredibly nice book with a lovely romance I give it 3.5 stars!
