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)

Yes, love KA's books
While I stayed up late to finish other books in this series, I've a very difficult time finishing this book. Mara's insecurity is waaayyyy too annoying. The 2.5 vs. 10.5 comparison was cute the first time, but after the 10th time or, I couldn't handle it anymore.
The narrator is ok
Not worth a credit
I was looking forward to this book, but had trouble finishing it due to Mara whining about her being ugly and worthless. It was too much for me to handle, it seemed like every other sentence she went into "Mara world" to convince herself that she didn't deserve Mitch. It wouldn't have been so bad, but it was annoying listening to this for HOURS. It also needed more action in the middle.
Nothing stuck out, but she was good.
Loved the trailer trash twins and the kids.
I'll read anything good. I'm easy that way.
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.
