Even after a pill addiction ruined her marriage, Vanessa Brown is living the life of her dreams: traveling on Parisian holiday with her mischievous mental paramour, Altan Young. A few weeks ago, the two accidentally fell in lust while high on Morpheum, a mind-melding sleeping pill that lets people explore each other’s psyches while asleep. Now, newly sober, they’re discovering they have more in common than a fondness for stolen pharmaceuticals. They might just love each other, even when awake.
Only one thing stands between Ness and her newfound happiness: a teeny-tiny murder charge orchestrated by her former boss (and Seattle’s most repulsive bachelor), Malcolm Jacobs, as part of his plan to get Morpheum to market. When Ness is accused of killing a former patient, there’s only one lawyer she can trust with saving her life: her brainy, big-hearted, almost-ex-husband, Pete—who just so happens to have access to her pill stash.
Now that she’s sleeping with two men, Ness doesn’t know which to choose—or if it even matters if she’s going to spend the rest of her life behind bars. Because between Malcolm’s revenge plot, a murderous cellmate, and a Pharma conspiracy that threatens national security, Ness’s dream life has turned into a real nightmare. And there may be no waking up.
