The Dream Man Series is Irresistible

This was another great listen from Kristen Ashley’s Dream Man series. Although it started out a little slow, the overall story was fantastic. I loved the fact that both characters were a little bit older (in their 40’s) and more mature. They didn’t fight over stupid things and always managed to work things out by talking about their problems. Despite all the drama from ex-spouses, kids, etc. they had each other’s backs and were completely committed to one another. I could really relate to this couple.

Kristen Ashley is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I love her unique writing style and Kate Russell’s narration is spot on.

Another 5 star listen!

This book began with a bang...literally ;)

One moment Tessa is having hot sex with 'Jake' the man she's been dating for the past 4 months & the next she discovers 'Jake' is actually an undercover cop whose been investigating her. (Brock Lucas is a DEA agent that we originally met in book 1, Mystery Man.) During her interrogation we learn that Tessa O'Hara has had a rough past. For 10 years she was married to Damian Heller, whom turned out to be a drug criminal. The Denver Police Department thought she was involved in her ex's activities but instead hear a heartbreaking confession about the life she endured in the hands of her ex-husband. And of course, while the questioning was taking place, Brock was listening in and discovers the horrible dark secret she voices out loud. This was not the confession the cops expected & ultimately she is found innocent. Tess feels betrayed when she realizes that Jake/Brock was using her. She's so hurt because she finally had allowed herself to open up & trust a man again. Three months later, after giving her space to heal, Brock shows up and in his typical, no-bullshit, we-will-deal-with-this-properly attitude, demands she listen to him and hear his side of the story. The combination of her being reasonable and him not playing games and being completely honest about things leads them into a beautiful relationship. The sexual chemistry between Brock & Tess was smoking HOT!! Brock may have been rough around the edges but he was also very protective & he took great care of Tess, which was something she always needed. Tess's character made this book shine. She was simply fabulous! I admired her straightforwardness and simple honesty. She didn't play games with Brock either. She told him exactly what she felt, thought, and wanted. She was open, honest, and caring. Her character was a breath of fresh air and I adored her. Tess and Brock together are a fantastic couple. Their banter is hilarious. Plus, Tessa instantly & whole-heartedly accepted Brock's boys into her life. Even when her ex-husband and his crazy ex-wife attempt to cause lots of drama, they both refuse to ever let anything come between them. In fact, most of the time things just end up bringing them closer together as a family unit. Overall, I truly enjoyed and loved this story. It was different than book 1, less action-packed, more focused on relationship development, and family drama. Plus, its filled with yummy, hot, swoon/drool-worthy alpha men, strong heroines, and an engaging plot line. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

Not my favourite KA book

I am a huge fan of KA but didn’t find this book all that exciting and I actually struggled to finish it. It was quite slow, very repetitive at times and the story line wasn’t all that great. I normally love the character’s she creates but I didn’t connect with Brock or Tess all that much. It won’t put me off reading more of her books as I’m sure this was just a one off.

Couldn't make it through

I just finished the Rock Chick series and thought I would try this. Though the story seems promising the narration is abysmal and I had to stop. The narrator reads the lead and internal monologue bearably but has given the male lead the most godawful voice which seems to be a cross between the Bronx and Boston. It totally kills him as a character.

Something about the narrator

The storyline was ok but I have an issue with the narrator. I get lost between the characters especially the male and female characters. The male characters voices were pitched at the same or sometimes at a higher level than the female

Couldn't finish it

What disappointed you about Wild Man?

Absolutely everything. The story line was boring and the narrator has one voice for all the characters. Considering the title is Wild Man and the author keeps mentioning how wild he is, there is no reference to what makes him wild. I tried to listen to this book twice and, unlike the rest of K.A. books, I couldn't get into it. It could be because the narrator was so bad but I think its a combination of the 2. Very disappointing as I have enjoyed all her other books.

What will your next listen be?

I will keep listening to more of K.A. books but maybe not in the Dream Man series as they are all narrated by Kate Russell. I have moved onto Marian Keyes

What didn’t you like about Kate Russell’s performance?

She didn't vary her voice between male and female which gets confusing. She also has an annoying voice, very off putting!

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No, but I also couldn't finish it so I don't know how it ended.
