Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley
Dream Man #1
Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He’s hot, he’s sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it’s a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he’s the one, she just can’t turn him away…
Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She’s gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone. Yet when Gwen is drawn into Denver’s lethal underground scene, Hawk’s protective nature comes out full force. The problem is, when Gwen gets a dose of Hawk’s Alpha attitude in the daylight, she’s not so sure he’s the one anymore….
Mystery Man is book #1 in the Dream Man Series and the first book I have read by Kristen Ashley.
I hear you screaming “How can you have not read any of Kristen Ashley’s books??” well honestly I’m not sure, I’ve seen her books all over but I honestly don’t think I’ve ever read any of the blurbs. But I was searching Goodreads ‘lists’ for books with alpha men and Kristen Ashley’s books just kept popping up.
So I’ve popped my Kristen Ashley cherry by reading Mystery Man and well god it was good for me lol!!!
I LOVE Hawk, like I swooned, my knees went weak and I’m fairly sure I left a bit of a wet patch because holy hell he’s bossy sex on legs!!!!
He’s just so incredibly alpha ‘Babe’ I swear that was 90% of his dialogue. Do I care?? Absolutely not he was brilliant!!! God I totally let him boss me about!!!
And god this book is just jam packed with sexy men, I kind of adored Tack and Mitch was super sweet. Sexy men were like bus’s there’s none and then three come and start fighting over Gwen.
Gwen, she should be really annoying, I feel like I should feel like she’s a bit of a slut but I actually just really really liked her!!! Yes it is a bit weird that she doesn’t question that a guy she met once has been sneaking into her room and using her for sex for 18mnths. But then again he was giving her amazing sex and multiple orgasms so it’s not that much of a stretch to see why she wasn’t complaining lol.
At times she is annoying but for the most part I found Gwen sweet and endearing if not a little daft!!
This book is action packed and with so many twists and turns I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through. Poor Gwen really did have the week from hell, fire bombs, kidnapping, and drive bys I think if it were me I would have just done a runner lol.
Hawk is so incredibly intense and when he turned all of that passion and heat on Gwen I shuddered the sex was hot but unfortunately there just wasn’t that much of it!
I think this book may have started a Kristen Ashley obsession; there are definitely more of her books in my future.
Mystery Man gets 4 Stars from me.
