REVIEW: Mystery Man (Dream Man #1) – Kristen Ashley

Released: July 12th, 2011

While drinking cosmopolitans, Gwendolyn Kidd meets the man of her dreams. Then she takes him home. Then she wakes up alone. But her fear that she lost her dream man turns into a relationship with a mystery man when, night after night in the dead of night, he comes back for more. Hoping it will blossom into something real, she lets him.

But she doesn’t even know his name.

Gwen’s struggling with the decision to end their crazy non-relationship when her sister-from-hell, Ginger’s best friend pays a visit and warns Gwen that if she and her sister don't get smart, they'll both get d-e-a-d, dead. Gwen has no clue what’s going on but she’s used to Ginger’s antics and decides to lay the problem on her sister’s biker boyfriend's doorstep. Bad choice. She hits the Denver Underground radar with a big, loud ping.

This means Gwen’s Mystery Man, Cabe “Hawk” Delgado has to step in to keep her safe. But when Hawk gets a dose of Gwen in the daylight, he makes the decision that he finally wants real with Gwen. However when Gwen gets a dose of badass, bossy, straight-talker Hawk in the daylight, she decides she’s done.

Thus begins the head-to-head of the Commando vs. Cosmo Girl as Hawk woos Gwen in his own unique way, Gwen survives firebombs, drive-bys, kidnappings, hot pursuits by biker hotties and gorgeous police detectives and discovers the heartbreaking reason why Hawk kept her at arm’s length.

And as all this happens, Gwen finds that her sister’s troubles are serious trouble and she must decide who to keep alive: her sister-from-hell or the man of her dreams.
"I'm gonna ride that attitude wave of yours, see how things work out."
Holy moly! ANOTHER HOT ALPHA!!! Kristen Ashley blows me away again with another dream man off her Dream Man series. This is actually the start of it all where Cabe "Hawk" Delgado meets a woman who can finally stand up to him with attitude, Gwen. They both have this sassy, sexy, and spunky relationship that's just hilarious to read. Plus, we get intense sex and dramatic moments that you just cannot miss.

EEEP!!! Hawk definitely makes it to my list of top book boyfriends, but then again that list is skyrocketing quickly with Kristen Ashley creating soooo many possessive alpha males who I fall in love with. 

Like the other dream men, Hawk is a straightforward, no-bullshit kind of man. He sees something he likes, he goes after it.
"I'm here 'cause when you come, you come hard, you don't hold back but you do hold on and you do it tight. I'm here because when you call me baby in this bed, I feel it in my dick."

And that includes Gwen, who initially only had sex with him and didn't even know his identity (Weird? Tell me about it). Anyways, so when he finally gets ahold of her sassiness, he's into it.

“Don’t call me baby when you’re pissed, Sweet Pea.”

“Don’t call me Sweet Pea at all, baby.”
These two are the bomb. I swear to God, they banter so much that it's fucking hilarious for us to read. They're like an old married couple, bickering all the time.

But Gwen is also such a great woman. I mean seriously, like few chapters into this book, and she's got three hot guys fawning over her. Tack (the leader of a motorcycle gang), Mitch (a uber-hot officer) and, of course, Hawk (the super badass, hot guy with dimples to die for).
"The point is, you're the kind of woman whose furnace breaks down, she calls you, you haul your ass over to her house to fix it, even if you're in the middle of a game."
Damn, you say it like it is, Hawk. AND OHMYGOD HE IS JUST SO THOUGHTFUL. I mean, what guy would listen to a girl ramble on and on? Christ, he is just the cutest fucker and I want to tap that hot piece of meat.

Basically, just read the book, I assure you if you like alpha males, you will definitely enjoy this series. HOT DAMN THEY'RE SO HOT.

4 — 4.5 APPLES!!!!!

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
