Love is just around the corner . . .
Sweet, shy Mara Hanover is in love with her neighbor. For four years, she has secretly watched her dream man from afar. Handsome police detective Mitch Lawson is way out of her league. She's a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, and there's no way a guy like Mitch would want anything to do with her. But when Mara has a leaky faucet that she can't fix, it's Mitch who comes to her rescue.
Mitch has been eyeing his beautiful neighbor for a long time. He jumps at the chance to help her, and soon their formerly platonic relationship gets very hot and heavy. But when Mara gets a disturbing phone call from her cousin's kids, she gets pulled back into the life she's tried so hard to leave behind. Can the hot law man convince Mara to let go of her past-and build a future with him? (Dream Man Series, Book 3)

I would suggest that you start the series at book 1, as the characters in the books make appearances in subsequent stories. By then you have met them, and know a bit about their background. Sort of like meeting friends again, and picking up the trail in the rest of the series.
I have listened to all the Dream Man Series books (4), all read by Kate Russel. I would give her a 10, if not for the fact that she fails to 'whisper/shout/etc.' when the text tells us the character whispered/shout, etc. I understand that the reader goes through the text before taping, so she should be expected to be able to change the volume, etc. as she reads. in fact, it usually felt as if she did the opposite of what the text called for. this was very disturbing to the overall performance.
But she still gets a 9.
A mother, wife, sister and good friend who enjoys the simple things in life. Country music is my preference and the beach is my escape (other then my books). LOL!
Loved it! Only down side I really do not like whiney female characters and this series has all of that.
Another great KA story. At times the accent assumed by the narrator was distracting. Once I was able to overcome this I enjoyed the book.
NOTHING! This could possibly be bias because I read the book before I listed to the narration but I loved this story when I read it. I love Mitch and after listening to the Rock Chick series of Kristen Ashley's books I was looking forward to listening to this audio book. IT WAS RUINED. The narrator kept giving all dialogue this Jersey/Boston accent which made descriptions and longer portions sound more exaggerated than described. The characters are from Denver, WHY do they sound like they're from the East Coast?! She made Billy (boy) sound like a dummy and air head and Mitch who I thought through an audio book would be even greater but sounded idiotic, and harsher than he came off when reading it and had no real flow.
Such a disappointment this whole series is narrated by this person because I won't be able to stand the audio for this book let alone the rest of the series.
Susannah Jones she did a great job narrating Kristen Ashley's Rock Chick series and could make amazing voices for all the different characters that fit their description and personality.
The best so far in the series! Although I was getting tired of Mara's insecurities, I loved the fact that Mitch never gave up on her. He was in love with her from the start and he wasn't going to give up until she was his. Good for him! Bud and Billie were adorable and the "trailer trash" twins kept me in stitches. Many of the cast members from the previous books where here and it was awesome! Loved the narrator. She is one of the best. Each voice was unique and the emotions she expressed was so good it sucked you in. Next, "Motorcycle Man".
Strong "Lawman" next door neighbor. Clueless, mixed up woman next door. Together an intriguing chemistry and challenging, crazy family element.
I have listened to this entire series and am completely baffled as to why the voices...set in Denver...are normal in this first book and somehow in the following books everyone ends up sounding like they are in New York. Especially when the DREAMY man sounded normal and completely sexy in book one and now sounds like he's from Brooklyn...but only sometimes. It's very distracting when you listen to books all the time and especially when you like the book so much and WANT to like the narration.
This book was entertaining, funny,great story . I will get all her. books. Women are so complicated. Lol
