Get ready to ride…
Tyra Masters has had enough drama to last a lifetime. Now, she's back on track and looking forward to her new, quiet life. Until she meets the man of her dreams. The tattooed, muscled biker plies her with tequila-and the best sex of her life. She knows it isn't the tequila and hot sex talking. He's the kind of man she's always wanted. Unfortunately, he's also her new boss…
Kane "Tack" Allen has a rule. He doesn't employ someone he's slept with. So when he learns he spent last night in bed with his new office manager, he quickly fires Tyra. Yet when Tyra stands up to him and fights for her job, Tack is intrigued. He tells her she can keep her job on one condition: No more sex. Ever. But as things heat up between them, Tack finds that he'll be the one breaking all the rules...

"[Kristen] Ashley captivates." (Publisher's Weekly)
"There is something about them [Ashley's books] that I find crackalicious." (DearAuthor.com)
"I felt all of the rushes, the adrenaline surges, the anger spikes...my heart pumping in fury. My eyes tearing up when my heart (I mean...her heart) would break." (Maryse.net)
The cast of characters are interesting. The story is well crafted, a good mix of hot, steamy characters, humor, and heart.
She almost turned me off this series. I listened to the first book and wrote it off because of her 'voices' just doesn't match the characters. I read the 2nd book and liked it enough to give this series another chance. Too bad Russell is reading all the books in the series. It's hard to listen to Tack and Tyra's cartoonish voices.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I love Kane "Tack" Allen!!!! Hands down the best Alpha Male from the Dream Man Series... with Hawk bring up a really close second....This book is the best of the series, I think... It was like Mystery Man but a bit better, and that was really hard to do, b/c Mystery Man was really high up there on my badassness meter!
From the open chapter, when Tyra and Tack fought about her job on the steps to the end on the picnic table in the RIDE parking lot.. this book was AWESOME... capitalized!
The way Ashely wrote this book, you can just feel the emotions and testosterone of Kane "Tack" Allen so clearly...
I loved all the drama.... the fights and action and the smexness of Tack Allen.. See I can't stop saying his name!!!
** Sidebar: Since I actually listen to Own the Wind before I listen to this, to get the back-story of Tabby and Shy in full technicolor was awesome... When Tabby talks about when Ty-Ty almost got hit with the bat...well that chapter was sweet.. when Ty-Ty gets stabbed, that part was EMOTIONAL! I love the fact that I now have history on Tabby, Shy, Elliot and Lanie, and Hopper!!! I so can't wait for Fire Inside...** Sidebar over.
I really can't find one bad thing to say about this book... Nothing... It was perfection... hence the 5 stars... So wish I could rate more than 5 stars, which I don't do too often...
Narration was great... same narrator for books 1-3 in the Dream Man series... Actually I kinda wish the narrators would have changed with each book, because all the female characters sound the same from book to book... SO a bit of adjustment is required if you are listening to these book back to back... HOWEVER, I rather have the same narrator instead of 4 bad narrators...so I am satisfied...
This is a must-have in your audiobook collection... Buy it, Credit it or Sale it... anyway you can get it...GET IT!
I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
Motorcycle Man, is the story of Kane"Tack" Allen and Tyra "Red" Masters.The magnificent Kristen Ashley does it again. Amazing characters, wonderful story, beautiful epilogue. I definitely recommend purchasing this last installment of the Dream Man series. This story begins with Tyra a smart, classy chick, who has been living off of her savings for the past two months after leaving a toxic work environment. Tyra decides to take a job at Ride a motorcycle & car shop but before showing up on her first day she goes to a wild Chaos biker party and meets Tack, the leader of the Chaos Motorcycle Club and owner of Ride. Tyra & Tack laugh, party, and have the best sex of her life and she falls HARD for Tack. In her mind, he’s her dream man, until he kicks her out of bed the next morning without even a goodbye. Unfortunately, on Monday morning when Tyra shows up to work her heart is stomped on even more, but Tyra’s one feisty girl and she’s not about to let some "biker dude” walk all over her! Problem is, Tack doesn't employ tail he’s hit, but Tyra is adamant about staying on board. Tack eventually caves on this and gives her a shot. This feisty Tyra, or “Red”, as Tack calls her is unlike the girl he met at the biker party, and now that he sees that, Tack has no intention of letting her go. Tack & Tyra have amazing sexual chemistry and Tack is such a sexy dirty talker. It works. It works really well. The dialogue between the two becomes more and more intimate, as Tack is surprisingly sweet. Kristen Ashley books are really something special. She writes from a very honest place. Her characters resonate deep emotional truths that just plain ring true. She writes heroines who are so real. They are strong, beautiful, flawed, smart and always full of fire. Tyra was no exception. She had fears and insecurities but those were drowned out by how wonderful she was. So kind and accepting, with a heart of gold. Tyra and Tack together is perfection! Their chemistry, love, banter, passion, humor, all of it is off the charts! I loved this book...it's my favorite of the Dream Man series. I truly believe that no one writes a better alpha male! Hot, bossy and possessive to the max, Tack is something else! 5+++TACK-riffic STARS!!
I loved this book when I read it, but narrator, although good in her own way, is not good for this book. She kept using a Brooklyn accent when characters are from Colorado. Tack's voice is supposed to be low and gravely and instead sounded at times like a young surfer dude and at others like a gangster from New York. Sorry but I wish I hadn't wasted a credit.
This narator is terrible!! When did Tack have a New York accent? Too raspy and you can barely understand it. I could not even finish listening. So dissapointed as this was one of my FAVORITE Kristen Ashley books. I have re read it numerous times and was so looking forward to the Audible version. I will not be buying the remaining Mystery Man series because she is the same narrator for the series.
She was terrible. She used accents that did not belong to the characters. As far as I know, they are not from New York!! Awful!!
No. I did not finish!! Got 3 chapters in and could not bear it any longer.
Wow, based on all the stellar reviews, I am surprised by how much I disliked the narrator for this book. I've read MM several times in print and was pretty excited to get a chance to listen to one of Kristen Ashley's books. The sample had only Tyra's voice, so when the narrator got to Tack it was an unpleasant surprise. There was absolutely no hint of his "deep, gravelly voice" and though I know the narrator is a woman there are a number of other woman narrators out there who can do a great male voice. This one can't. Additionally, she frequently gave a jersey accent to a greater or lesser degree to many of her characters, including, at times, Tack. Such an accent is completely off base for a Coloradan originally from California. Simply awful. My advice is to stick with Kristen Ashley's books, which I love. This narrator only detracts from her stories.
I'm a fan of Kristin Ashley's books and looked forward to listening to this one. I could not get through it due to the narrator. Her voice was annoying and she over emphasized everything she read. It really spoiled the story for me. Hoping any future books of Kristin's will find a different narrator.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
Finally we get Motorcycle Man on Audible!!! I feel like I've been waiting forever. This is Tack's story and he is one hot alpha male! He is like a 15 on the alpha scale of 1-10. This is the BEST book in the Dream Man series and that's saying something - every book KA writes is amazing. Her words with Kate Russell's narration is absolutely perfect.
This was a great ending to a fantastic series. I'm just sad it's over. I'll be in Dream Man withdrawal for awhile....
“Truth, honesty, perseverance, strength, love of all kinds and forgiveness are all beautiful, Tack. The most beautiful stories ever told are the most difficult to take.”
The truth of that quote really says it all! Tack Allen and Tyra Masters story is a shining example of that truth!
Kristen Ashley just rocks with a keyboard and rocks it hard! I have LOVED everything she has written.
As for Kate Russell (IMHO) she is the voice of the Dream Man series! She puts forth plenty of character into her narration!
I have been happily married for 17 years, I have 3 children (12, 14, & 16), and 2 dogs. I am currently working on a 2nd degree. Life is chaotic and stressful, but I wouldn't change it. I am blessed and enjoying my life.
K.A and K.R are the most awesome dynamic duo!! This team creates the most wonderful, unexpectedly awesome world. Between the unusual love affair and the kick-ass narration, each one of these books makes me giddy to visit! My cheeks are aching from grinning. As I stated before, I want to be in this posse!!! lol Thanks for letting me visit with ya'll. These books are so good I walked an extra mile today just so I could have more uninterrupted time to listen :) Kristen Ashley if you keep writing these books, girl I might be high school skinny again!!
"Can't get enough"
Book 4 in the Dream Man series follows Chaos club president, Tack, I've so been looking forward to his story. Loved Tyra, love her heart and love the fact that she doesn't let Tack walk all over her, even though she loved him from the get go. Tack being Tack and a bad a@# biker, is not the easiest of men to get along with, he maybe a giver in the bedroom, but otherwise it's his way or the highway, so there are lots of sparks flying. It's not too long before we find out that they are the perfect couple, and I fell well and truly under Tack's spell. Either way. This is a rollercoaster ride of a story - kidnapping, shootings, Russian mafia, ex wives and much more. We also get to keep up with the rest of the Dream Men and their women. I certainly hope this isn't the last we've heard of the Dream Men. I want more.
"Loved it ,"
I love nearly everything written by Kristen Ashley ,this book is one of my favourites, plenty on action and romance with a great storyline . I wish audio would release her Fantasy land series , I would love to listen to those books...
Tack was my favourite ,such a jerk at first then you love him.
Kate Russell's performance was good,
Most defiantly worth buying , very good length to story ,will listen to again.
"Good fun ;)"
Easy listening and it takes you away from the normal hum drum of reality man and marriage lol
"Just as good as when I first read it."
Hot, Rough & Sexy
It's gotta be Tack, loved everything about him. He's a tough, dangerous guy but has a soft side too.
The scene where Tyra is taken and the rescue mission to save her.
Yes and I would've if I could've.
I have read this book before it really fancied trying it in audio. I'm glad I did! :)
