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.

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!
