Review Tour: ECHOES OF A DREAM by BT Urruela


Release Date: July 10

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?

Wow! This book was something else!


Echoes of a Dream is the first book that I've read by B.T. Urruela and it was definitely different.


Dylan knew he was different at the age of 14 when he saw a vision of a horrific scene that later became reality. After that happened, he tried to avoid that part of his late at all costs. 


When a mysterious man enters his shop after he graduates college, and starts talking about the visions he's had his intrigued is peaked. One catch though, he can't tell anyone where he's going if he accepts this stranger's offer to join a secret government agency.


The beginning of this book had me second guessing why I was reading it until the suspense kicked in. There's a lot of action, thrill and suspense that were extremely well written in this book that kept my attention until the very end. The little bit of MM romance that was thrown in, also may have helped a little.


I don't think I would classify this book as romantic suspense as it was more suspense than any romance but it was still a great read.

Meet BT Urruela 
BT Urruela is a combat wounded amputee, purple heart recipient, contemporary author who has written both independent and traditionally published books. He is a RARE under 40 award recipient, Rockwood Summit High School and Rockwood School District Hall of Fame inductee, Co-founder and Brand Ambassador for VETSports, Ambassador for Tampa Sports Academy, People Magazine Tribute for Heroes winner, Cover Model, Motivational Speaker and Philanthropist.

At an early age he began writing short stories having been inspired by reading books authored by RL Stein. His maternal grandmother's bookshelf was filled with literature that inspired his young mind and cultivated his vivid imagination. 

Upon graduation from high school his desire to have a 20-year military career was cut drastically short by an improvised explosive device. Taking the life of his commander, and leaving the remaining four team members badly wounded. 

After careful consideration and multiple surgeries, he along with the guidance of his doctors made the decision to amputate. It was the only surgery he ever left with a smile on his face, as if a weight had been lifted. He struggled for two more years through 4-5 hours of physical therapy a day, five days a week to get adapted to his new prosthetic. He medically retired from the Army with high hopes. His focus on restoring his physical shape being the most eminent battle caused him to neglect his psychological state. 
Meeting people was difficult and there were very few options for veterans to utilize that would stimulate friendship, and ultimately, allow communication barriers to be breached. After moving to Tampa, Florida, he co-founded the veteran community sports nonprofit, VETSports, with two other combat wounded veterans. It was their mission to change the way veterans transitioned back to civilian life through organized team sports, community involvement, and leadership opportunities.  

After being invited to attend a photoshoot with acclaimed photographer Michael Stokes, he flew to California in December of 2014, with incredible excitement. His photos were so widely publicized that he soon gained exposure to the literary world like he'd always dreamed of. That opportunity launched him into his present writing career. He co-wrote the novel 'A Lover's Lament with author KL Grayson. The following year he released first solo novel, 'Into the Nothing' and will be releasing Wicked Little Words with author Stevie J. Cole. He is now writing full-time.

The girl next door. My little sister’s best friend. I’d known the brilliant, funny, shy beauty my entire life.

Add to Goodreads:






Amara is my dark obsession. She was promised to me in a deal she knows nothing about.

Four years ago, I sent her away to protect her from the life I live as the son of a crime lord.

Now her brother—my best friend—is dead, and though I wasn’t there for him in the end, I intend to look after his little sister.

I should stay in the shadows, let her live the life her brother wanted for her, but one look at her and I know I’m the only one who can save her…but I’ll have to break her first.

Good girls keep their promises, and it’s time Amara came home—to me—where she belongs.


As far as I’m concerned, Ryder let me go four years ago and I never looked back.

Until the day he shows up demanding I come home, and I have no choice but to return when he forces my hand.

The Saints never pay for their crimes. They take what they want and discard the rest. Like me… 

But I’m not that weak girl anymore, and I’m packing secrets of my own. 

I’ll use my time to find out who killed my brother…then I'll destroy them.

Even if that man is Ryder himself.

* Cruel Saint is the first book in the Vicious Empire dark romance family saga series.

Add to Goodreads:






The woman my family is looking for is the one-night stand I can’t get out of my head, and her life depends on me getting to her first.

Harlow is sunshine and light.

I live in the shadows, among the dark and the damned, but there’s something about Harlow that makes me want to take care of her.

I can protect her from what’s coming, but first I need to find her, and I’m closing in.

I learned my lesson the first time, and I won’t give her the chance to get away from me again.


What are the chances that the man I shared a toe-curling, name-screaming, raging hot one-night stand with is part of the crime family that’s after me because I saw something I shouldn’t have?

One hundred percent. The chances are one hundred freaking percent.

At least I wasn’t stupid enough to give him my real name.

Now I’m on the run with everything I own stuffed into a tattered backpack.

I never thought I would see Cole again, but I was wrong, and we’re no longer strangers who shared a night.

Now we’re on opposite sides of a war that threatens to tear our worlds apart.

**A portion of this book was originally published as a 5,000 word novelette titled Missed Me which is no longer available.

Add to Goodreads:







Five years ago, Nyla stole two million dollars from me and disappeared.

Now she’s resurfaced, and I’m determined to settle her debt…one way or another.

Hiking in the mountains in my underwear while being hunted by hitmen wasn’t something I thought we’d be doing when I woke up this morning, yet here we are.

If we can settle our issues and work together, we just might make it out alive—if we don’t kill each other first.


I conned the con five years ago, but he took something I wasn’t prepared to leave behind—my heart.

Now I’m stranded in the wilderness with the one person who has every reason to hate me, and we have no choice but to work together, or we’re dead.

It turns out surviving the elements and the men who are searching for us is the easy part.

The hard part is being close to Dagen, coming clean, and looking him in the eye. Those same eyes I see every time I look at the daughter he doesn’t know we have.

SAVAGE SAINT (Vicious Empire #4)

Release Date: November 22nd 

Cover Design by: The Pretty Little Design Co.

Photographer: Wander Aguiar

Cover Model: Clayton Wells

Add to Goodreads:






I am who I am for a reason.

The monster the world sees when they look at me was born twenty years ago to protect my brothers from the same fate I endured on my sixteenth birthday.

I locked my broken self away, until the night I met Sloane.

She was both forbidden and everything I’ve ever wanted all wrapped into one, and I wanted her, but I wasn’t the only one.

In the end, she made her choice and it wasn’t me—or so I thought. 

Now that I know the truth, I’m taking my life back piece by piece, even if I have to carve it out of the flesh of anyone who stands in my way.

Sloane is mine, and I will die on this hill—but not before everyone else dies first.


I loved two men once.

I made a choice, but the man I chose, didn’t choose me back—or so I thought.

When a secret I didn’t know I had comes to light, my life as I knew it ends in a flash.

Now I’m a pawn in a game with no rules, and I refuse to play the part I’ve been handed. The only way to win is to be the queen and I’m taking the throne to protect my son.

To stay alive, I have to make a deal with the devil and hope it’s the lesser of all the evils that surround me.

I’ve lost too much and I’ve had enough. 

I will burn this vicious empire to the ground, and from its ashes, I will rise.
