Echoes of a Dream by B.T. Urruela

Echoes of a Dream is a suspense filled, slow burn beginning of a complicated series of hidden feelings and emotions.  

From the blurb:

Dylan Correia has always had a special gift. At first he thought he was having a bad trip, hallucinations.
By eighteen, he realized it was something different. Something powerful. It began as a wave of prickly heat sweeping over his body, causing the hairs on the back of his neck to stand on end and his eyes to slam shut. He'd see things—terrible things—in his head, and like the echoes of a lucid dream, the thoughts would stay with him for days, torturing him.

He continued ignoring the power, lying to himself, until the day he saw it on the news—a Chevy Malibu flipped upside down and burning. The same one he'd seen in his visions the night before.

After a few years away at college, unburdened by these visions through frequent alcohol abuse, Dylan reaches graduation having already started a successful vinyl and comic book store with his best friend. Everything runs smoothly until a mysterious run-in with a stranger from a top-secret government agency threatens to flip his world on its end.

There’s a new program and Dylan’s a perfect fit.

Will Dylan take the stranger up on his generous, but vaguely described, offer? Does he have what it takes to pass the rigorous training if he does choose to join the program? And at what cost to him?

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

What an intense , suspenseful ride Echoes of a Dream was!! And, the conspiracy theories that left a lot more questions than answers. I went in thinking it was going to be a romance, but was met with so much more than just two people falling in love. There was suspense, action, and drama packed into one. 

ʜᴇ ᴡᴀꜱ ᴛʜᴇ ᴍᴀɴ ɪ ᴡᴀɴᴛᴇᴅ ᴛᴏ ʙᴇ ᴀɴᴅ ᴛʜᴇ ᴍᴀɴ ɪ ᴡᴀɴᴛᴇᴅ ᴛᴏ ʙᴇ ᴡɪᴛʜ.

Dylan and Griffin’s love story was a slow burn, building over time and leaving you with so many unanswered questions. The suspense of their chemistry held me to the very end, with high hopes for a continuation. And, that twist was completely and utterly mind-blowing!! Not mentioning the military vibe was top notch!!
