Review: Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley
Mystery Man

3.5 Stars


Book Info

Released: July 12, 2011
Series: Dream Man #1
Pages: 406
 

Another Kristen Ashley book, another macho alpha man. Not that I am complaining, if I found one of these men myself you would have to pry me off with a crowbar and some heavy duty tools. Which is why I kind of hate Gwendolyn Kidd, she has not one, not two, but THREE sexy alpha males panting (in a very manly way of course) after her. How is that fair? Of course I am not jealous all the time, especially as her POS sister has managed to drag Gwen in to her trouble leading her to be fire bombed, shot at and kidnapped.Although this is the first book in the Dream Man series I actually have read this third, so I had heard alot about Hawk, the sexy alpha hero, in the other two books Wild Man and Law Man. Hawk, did not let me down, he was definitely bad ass, and although he isn’t a favourite KA hero I think he may be one of the most arrogant and I enjoyed every second reading about him.

At this point, I have the KA formula down, so I know what to expect, but that doesn’t stop me from loving every second of the books. They are unashamedly over the top, the men although complete control freaks are also completely perfect and I am completely in love with everything she writes. So although these books to have their faults, they are long winded and sometimes I find her turn of phrase a little odd, I still like to rate these highly on pure enjoyment factor.

So why the 3.5 stars? Mainly because although I liked this one alot, I have liked some of her other books a little but more.

About Kristen Ashley

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.
