Night time is the right time….
Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He's hot, he's sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away….
Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone. Yet when Gwen is drawn into Denver's lethal underground scene, Hawk's protective nature comes out full force. The problem is, when Gwen gets a dose of Hawk's Alpha attitude in the daylight, she's not so sure he's the one anymore….

"There is something about them [Ashley's books] that I find crackalicious." (DearAuthor.com)
"[Kristen] Ashley captivates." (Publisher's Weekly).
The hero is basically a stalker. The story reminded me of Fifty Shades of Grey, minus the BDSM. I finished listening. It was alright, but I'm sad I wasted a credit on it. The reviews I read looked very promising, but they are obviously from listeners with different taste than me.
I just finished the Colorado Mountain series and fell in love with Kristen Ashley. All I can say is thank goodness she has the Dream Man series I was going through some serious withdrawal. No one writes a character like Ms. Ashley.
Mystery Man is the first book in the Dream Man series and I confess I was really afraid to read it. I read the premise and immediately thought "are you kidding me?". I mean I love Kristen Ashley, but really a woman allows a man that she doesn't even know his name sneak into her room at night for over a year, has wild (albeit amazing) sex and then he's gone in the morning and it's fine? Very far fetched. But, once I started reading the story I was able to get over that with no problem.
Cabe "Hawk" Delgado is a flawed man, by his own admission. But, he's also everything a man should be. First, he's a "real" guy, not watered down or feminized (which is what I love most about Ms. Ashley's guys), he loves his family, he's protective, he's thoughtful, he's caring, he's a take charge and get things done kind of guy. He has a past that haunts him every day and has pretty much lived the last 8 years of his life making sure he doesn't ever have to relive his nightmare.
"For him to be special, he has to make me feel special."
Gwendolyn Kidd lives in a dream world. She meets a guy at a bar, takes him home with her and has the best sex of her life. That part? Not so uncommon (unfortunately). However, she continues to get visits from this man for the next year and a half. She fantasizes that one day he'll want her for more than a night, here and there. However, her fantasy does not include her very "wrong side of the law" sister dragging her into some very serious trouble where Hawk has to come to her rescue. Once there relationship is forced into the light, so to speak the sparks fly.
"I'm here 'cause when you come, you come hard, you don't hold back but you do hold on and you do it tight. I'm here because when you call me baby in this bed, I feel it in my dick. And I'm here because you don't hesitate throwing attitude when every other woman I know doesn't have the guts to say boo to me. Seein' you scared and wantin' to do something about it was just an extra reason that made me want to be here."
This book is great. It is so good to know that the Colorado Mountain series wasn't a fluke. Kristen Ashley is amazing! I have never read anyone that can consistently write such fanatastic characters and stories. Be prepared to fall in love with everything Kristen Ashley when you read this book. It seriously has it all. I cried, I laughed and I sighed (A Lot).
I thought Kate Russell did a fantastic job with both male and female narration. I would love dual POV's but it wasn't needed.
This was a sexy and tingling listen! Holy crap you're going to need a shower to cool down. I will definitely be buying the other audios.
I hope that Kate is the narrator because I really enjoyed her voice
I heard so many good thing about this author. I was so disappointed with this book. I know there are unrealistic situations in books but this one takes the cake. Listened to the whole book & still don't know what the hero did for a living or what happened to the sister!
The narrator was horrible! Hew voice was like nails on a blackboard. Her extreme volume was how she differentiated between characters.
I don't recommend wasting your time on this book. I will not continue with the series.
If you like KA'S Chaos MC, you'll like this novel. The narration is the only weakness. This narrator doesn't do "bad ass" well.
solid. worth the bucks. so glad there are more. this book keeps you off balance. keeps you guessing.
This was definitely not my kind of book. Soft porn. So, I suppose if you have no imagine or experience with sex, you might be intrigued.
All of the sex scenes...the plot was weak enough...not my type of book at all. Wish I would have known how lame the story line was and that it was filled with graphic sexual depictions.
She was OK for the type book that this turned out to be.
All of the sex scenes.
I'll never waste another credit without listening to a sample.
