Publisher's Summary

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….

    "Fan-freakin-tastic!!!!!"

    I totally fell all into this book. Alpha males all over the freaking place. Bad guys blowing up stuff, and a hero worthy of role in "An Officer and a Gentleman." Gwen was the bomb. A little dingy but in the best possible way, with a little "Sex In the City" thrown in. I have never seen an author pull off dingy without being annoying, but Kristen Ashley did. And girl!!! I either wanted to become one of her characters or to make them all a reality. One of the best books I have listened to period. And even though Hawk's secretary was only in the latter part of the book, she was my favorite character besides the H and H. I want a friend in my posse just like her.
    Now on to Kate Russell......O.M.G.! I am soooooo totally in love with your voices. They made KA's character come alive for me. I had the biggest grin on my face. And the men sound totally yummy. Girl, when I heard the Hawk's secretary for the first time I spewed water out of my mouth! She was a hoot!!!!

    Okay, if you have to ask is this worth a credit. STOP! Just go download the dang book!!!! :)

    "A complete roller coaster ride of emotions. "

    The Dream Man series starts with Gwen and Hawk. While their year and half "romance" is not your standard fling, their passion and possession are off the charts. There is a lot of action in this book as well as great sex scenes. For me it was an emotional roller coaster and I loved every minute. I was completely sucked into this story. The plot was intriguing. Lots of twists and turns. If you like the ultimate dominant alpha male and a sexy sassy heroine with a love story filled with suspense then you need to listen to this book. Each character are hot and completely lovable. The love is beautiful, the plot fabulous. It was an excellent, fast paced, and action packed book. Kristen Ashley definitely has a fan for life. I hope audible starts to offer her Rock Chick series soon!

    "Love the story, hate the narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I absolutely recommend Kristen's books.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Russell’s performances?

    No. I've read Mystery Man twice, and I love it. But the more I listen to the narrated version, the more I dislike it. The inflection, the tone, and the emotion are just not adding up for me. The whiney voice she uses for the secondary characters, and the weird whispery voice she uses for the main character make everyone seem weak and annoying.

    "Absolutely ridiculously good!"

    This is definitely one of my top listens of 2013! Kristen Ashley clearly knows how to write smart, sexy, contemporary romance lit. This was such a winner, you don't even need to read further just add it to your cart and seal the deal.

    Hawk Delgado...such a delicious alpha male, and Gwen---I absolutely LOVED these two! The humor and witty banter is some of the best I've heard, and the narrator was perfection. It wasn't so much that she had this great voice, but she nailed the characters, she really did, and that added so much to an already perfect story.

    This was a multi layered story that had action, romance, and it will make you laugh out loud guaranteed! Credit worthy in spades!!!

    "Wow....I really needed this!"

    After 4 or 5 very disappointing books I decided to just not "listen" for awhile. This book was FABULOUS!. This narrator is perfectly GENIUS. She read this book perfectly. Just made the writing! My first book with this author and she got everything right. Most people cannot write "drama" like this. It was funny, and scary, and sexy and and and. You should get this book it was a breath of fresh air. I loved it. It may actually be YA not sure but it made my day.

    I love Audible! Being a full time wife, mother, and career leaves no time to actually read. Audio books give me my fix anytime and anywhere.

    "Fan-Freaking-Tastic!"

    This was just what I needed! I was stuck in my book club's monthly selection that was slow and not picking up the pace, so I stopped that audio to try and find something adventurous, fun, hot, and juicy...you know something you can sink your teeth into? I found it all right here! Adventurous enough to have my adrenaline still pumping, so much fun my cheeks still hurt from grinning, Hot to the point of beating the heat of this Louisiana summer, and so juicy I can feel it dripping off my chin! Mystery Man makes into my top 10 of contemporary romances, maybe even top 5 but that's to hard to narrow down. This novel has it ALL ladies and gentlemen...you will laugh out loud in the middle of the grocery store, have you crying and with a baffled husband cause he doesn't understand why, make you so mad the kids will wonder what they did wrong, and have you so hot and bothered you wish you hadn't started listening at work! All of that was true by the way, if you couldn't tell, because once I started this audio I COULD NOT STOP! I was not able to with the way the author just tosses you into the story and you are gripped from the dang prologue! I could go into detail as to why I LOVED EVERY SECOND of this book but then I might go on forever so just TRUST ME on this one guys...Our heroine is a total day dreaming girly girl but incredibly lovable, our hero is infuriating yet perfect Alpha Soldier (Don't you just love a good drool worthy soldier?), and all supporting characters were amazingly well rounded bringing a lot of great humor and realistic qualities to help you relate to this sometimes out-of-this world story. This whole novel is well rounded in fact, with high voltage action, comedy, hot romance, and just the right amount of heart break before it wraps up so nicely it makes you sigh because it was wonderful and now its over. I will definitely be re-listening to Mystery Man on a day when I can't make up my mind on what to move onto next, and YOU should get your first listen on RIGHT NOW,credit or no credit, this one is worth your money!

    "AWESOME! Kristen Ashley's books are the best!"

    When a book makes you want to stop at chapter 2 and review it, so everyone in the world can enjoy pure happiness... Well then, I say 5-Stars, Sir... 5-Stars!

    Hawk was a great, great character....hot and smexy and a total bad-ass.... but Gwen! Gwenie was awesome. I totally loved her air-head meets smexy chic, although highly intelligent attitude. She was a perfect Commando's Woman....

    I really like the secondary characters in the book. Elvira, man I really want Elvira to have her own book... Next was Tracy... and Cam and Leo! Loved it... I also loved the other two bad-asses in this book, which was Mitch Lawson and Tack Allen. If you have listen to Own the Wind...then you should know who Tack Allen is... Tack actually will have his own book, at the end of this series... and I just cannot wait to hear Mitch's story. He is the next bad-ass to find a hot Cosmo Chic!

    Ashley books are really true to their characters. For instance, the bad-asses remain bad-asses throughout the entire book... they don't change halfway through into these love struck wimps... They remain bad-asses with that special one who can handle the shit they dish out! All the females who fall for these bad-asses are quite strong as well... Perfect Combination...

    The smex was also great... not too much, not too little... just perfect. I don't think there was anything wrong with this entire book..

    Narration was great. Loved Hawk's voice! So smooth and smexy... Babe!

    A Buy, Credit, or Sale... whatever...just get this...!!!!

    "Narrator Exactly Right"

    I'm so glad this series has come to audio. The books need a female narrator since the books are written from the heroine's POV. Yay for Kate Russell! She nailed Gwen's personality - most importantly her playful sense of humor. Her reading of Hawk was dead on as well. Totally enjoyed it!

    I was very unhappy with the narrator cast for Own the Wind so I'm relieved to see a change for the better. Ideally, this series would have a male and female narrator team. It would be great to hear these bad boys read in a deep rumbly voice. Otherwise, I hope Kate Russell reads the rest of the series.

    "I love KA stories!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mystery Man to be better than the print version?

    The narrator of this KA story is better than the first one, but I really wish they would get someone who makes a true distinction between voices. Since this is not the case, I will have to say the print version is better.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I am a big Elvira fan. I would really love to hear a narrator be able to capture her character because she is quite a character.


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

    I have not heard her narration before.


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

    I did just because of the story. There is never a dull moment.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to hear someone like Loralie King read Kristen Ashley 's stories. They have such enjoyable characters that she would bring to life.

    "Mmmmm.......... A PURRRFECT LISTEN"

    I didn't want this listen to end and, when it eventually did, I felt I had to say goodbye to some much loved characters that I'd become emotionally attached to and I almost wanted to listen to it all over again.

    During this amazing, enjoyable, emotional, tender, heartbreaking, hot listen you will encounter a super sexy, super Alpha, arrogant, drool-worthy Commando hero with dimples (who I loved, loved, loved), biker rogues, hot Cops, other sexy members of the Commando team, family members, friends and a strong likeable heroine.

    Then, as the plot seemlessly unfolds, you will be whisked into all the drama and turmoil of a beautiful love story that's romantic, full of sexual chemistry, lol humor, surprises, action, with snappy dialogue and the rapport between the H/H is soooo de...lish...ous and the Epilogue was very touching.

    Worth a credit? It's got everything a romance lover wants and more ....... so that's a definite big fat YES with sprinkles on and I'm looking forward to more in this new series.
