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.

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.

    "What a great start to a series!"

    I have had this on my wish list for a while now. So I finally did it and loved every minute!! I liked the story line and the fact that there was no mad "break up" chapter and then they get back together, like most story's have. I fell in love with Mitch and how he "handled" Mira from the start. Breaking down her fears. I will be going onto the next in the series and cant wait to down load it.!!

    "Good story ok narrator"

    The story was good but the narrator did a poor job w/the male voices. At times I wasn't sure if she was even trying to do a male character or simply reading. The story was good not great but good. It got better as the time went on. The first couple of hours I really was thinking about asking for my credit back. But after I got past my irritation w/the narrator I started to enjoy the story. I will say at the end she did finally get a little better with the male characters and she did the children characters perfectly. If narrators make or break a book for you then I don't believe I would recommend this book. Her voice isn't irritating just doesn't seem like she put any real effort in the lead male character. However if you can imagine it's your mom reading a bedtime story then this is a nice story.

    I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!

    Story
    "Give me this man anytime!"

    Wow! Mitch...I don't even know where to start. A cop who has had a thing for his closed up neighbor Mara and when he finally gets an in, boy does he bust that door WIDE open!

    In Mara world, everything has it place and Mitch is definitely out her zone... for 4 years every time she sees him, she runs far away. When Mitch finally pushes for answers she does the one thing she can to stop him from asking questions. She kisses him. HOT! that's all I can say about that kiss. After that there is no way Mitch is not fighting for this woman. He takes her as she is and all her baggage. Mara has some pretty heavy stuff in her past but he take it in stride, laying out how things are going to be. He guides her out to Mara world and into the real world!

    I loved listening to past characters, Elvira is always a treat. Hawk and all his macho self has Mara acting a full. And of course Tack..oh, Tack..

    I am sad that Tack's HEA is the end of the dream series but I definitely will have no problem going back time after time!

    Story
    "It was good, though not the best"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Mainly because it was Mitch and he was wonderful.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Billy and Billie were what made this story. They were phenomenal! I was in love with these two kids from start to finish.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Russell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. All the books in the Dream Man series were really, really good. After all who doesn't love strong willed, seriously hot guys that think you hung the moon.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh and cry. You had to with those two kids. God they just ripped your heart out. I must admit though, most of my strong reactions came from wanting to belt Mara...I don't do frustration well.


    Any additional comments?

    Mitch is this really great guy, who just happens to be the total package. He's HOT, as in singe your fingers hot. He's kind, thoughtful, strong take charge and not in a do what your told way, though he does have a few moments like that. He is exactly what every woman dreams about. Mara on the other hand drove me NUTS! At first I though she was just really funny with the whole he's a 10.5 and I'm a 2.5. You feel alittle sorry for her. figuring low self esteem, rough child hood, nightmare family, so on and so forth. You get it, you understand. But when well over half the book has gone by and she is still doing the poor me act and holding him away like he's Satan incarnate you start getting sick of it really fast. Honestly, if it hadn't been for this being Mitch's book and the kids I might not have finished it. Mara had me just that aggravated. Luckly, about 3/4 of the way through the book, it starts gets better and the story is saved. So if you can bear up to a lot of whining from Mara and hang in you will end up liking the book.

    "Good story, bad narrator"
    Any additional comments?

    The story was good, but the narrator almost ruined it. On and off throughout the story, she tries to give the main male character from Denver, a New York accent. She made the female character in her late 20's early 30's sound almost like a young Valley girl. Too much enunciation during the sex scenes making them almost annoying and definitely not sexy. This narrator should not do erotic books. The author is good and I love the series, but I won't buy anymore books with this narrator.

    Story
    "How many times can she say "I mumbled" ?!?!?!?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Change the female protaganist's dialogue! Grrrr.
    She keeps saying "I mumbled" 'and "Okay I whispered"


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kristen Ashley again?

    I have listened to some of her other books and they were NOWHERE near this annoying and repetitive.


    What about Kate Russell’s performance did you like?

    Good. Enjoyed the voices.


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

    Performance was good.


    Any additional comments?

    I really want to return this book! Not worth the money.

    Story
    "Not the best."

    After Mystery Man, which I loved, I was expecting great things from this second book in the series. I was vastly disappointed.

    I can't fault the reader -- she did what she could with the material. It was the endless stream of consciousness narrating on the part of the h that brought me out of the story at the midway point. And it was narrating. Repetitious non-stop inner monologue narrating. If a real person's thought processes worked this way, they would be completely unable to function, and would be left deaf, dumb and blind to the verbal and physical cues that are a necessity when it comes to negotiating real life. (Girlie Aspergers? If so, it's a severe case.)

    I'm giving it 3 stars for the many great touches that made me chuckle and also made me wish for a better book to go with them.

    Story
    "Great Story, horrible accents."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Mitch is a tough detective from DENVER, not New York. Mitch, as well as some of the other characters sound native to NY/NJ every time there was a fight scene. Very distracting. I've lived in Denver for a long time and no one talks like that unless they're a transplant from the east coast.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. The story was great for the most part. Although Mara's issues and constantly pushing Mitch away became tedious. The level of insecurity becomes unbelievable after a while.

    Story
    "The End!"

    I got this book because of the good reviews, one in particular, she has never failed me. However I do not see why people have loved this book so much. It was funny and romantic but it got to the point I was screaming ENUFF ALREADY! For me this book was just a little too long for the main story line. By the end of the book if I heard one more time about him being a 10.5 and her being a 2.5 I would have screamed. I just wanted to knock some sense into Mara. The ending however when the big oh no happened felt rushed. If the author would of token out some of the .5 stuff and add more to that OH NO scene then this book might of been a 4. But since I had to listen to all that point this and that for so long I can not give this book more then 3 stars. This book could of been half as long and been better. I am just happy I did not pay full price for it.
