Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Kristen Ashley comes a new story in her Dream Man series...

Charlotte “Lottie” McAlister is in the zone. She’s ready to take on the next chapter of her life, and since she doesn’t have a man, she’ll do what she’s done all along. She’ll take care of business on her own. Even if that business means starting a family.

The problem is, Lottie has a stalker. The really bad kind. The kind that means she needs a bodyguard.

Enter Mo Morrison.

Enormous. Scary.

Quiet.

Mo doesn’t say much, and Lottie’s used to getting attention. And she wants Mo’s attention. Badly.  

But Mo has a strict rule. If he’s guarding your body, that’s all he’s doing with it.

However, the longer Mo has to keep Lottie safe, the faster he falls for the beautiful blonde who has it so together, she might even be able to tackle the demons he’s got in his head that just won’t die.

But in the end, Lottie and Mo don’t only have to find some way to keep hands off until the threat is over, they have to negotiate the overprotective Hot Bunch, Lottie’s crazy stepdad, Tex, Mo’s crew of frat-boy commandos, not to mention his nutty sisters.

All before Lottie finally gets her Dream Man.

And Mo can lay claim to his Dream Girl.

Quiet Man

I LOVED this book right from the beginning to the end. I love Smithy and everything he tells Lottie.

Lottie is exactly how I remember her from the RC books. <3
Mo oh Mo is PERFECT for Lottie I love him and how he falls for her. All at once it was beautiful. These kinds of books just make me love romance that much more than I did before.

Mo’s family omg both his blood and the ones he surrounds himself with I can’t wait for this new series I hope we get some of them, if not all. <3

Ok, we have to talk about TEX he made me have a tear! I loved his scene with Lottie and Smithy! I swear and that song I looked it up and listened this morning….THE TEARS! <3

I LOVED Susannah’s narration I always have she just brings so much to each of these characters in a way that you always know who is speaking and who’s pov we are in I love her.

QUIET MAN EQUALS WIN!

I love Kristen Ashley’s books, and this one is no exception.

This is Lottie and Mo’s story, but we get all the Rock Chicks and their Hot Bunch counterparts, plus the the guys from the Dream Man series. Hotness all around.

I enjoyed the story and recommend the book.

Great Start to the Series!!

I loved this book!! Mo was not much of a talker at all, however when it came to his Lottie he was full of words. There was a little bit of suspense, and great chemistry. I loved the Lottie knew what she wanted and she was not holding back at all. She went after Mo with everything that she had, and no matter how he tried he had no choice but to fall. I cannnot wait for the rest of the series to be written. I love Susannah Jones, she is a diamond in the rough and you will enjoy her narration!!

Sweet, quick listen

I loved this story! Not too angsty, yet not boring at all, which is impossible to find. I loved that Mac stood her ground on her profession, though we dont know if she continues to strip in the epilogue. Mo was AMAZING!! I loved him!
HEA by the end. My only complaint is, we weren't given the name of the baby. Haha. I was hoping it was from Mo's heritage.

I need you to trust

Quiet Man is a Dream Man Novella which brings back some of our favorite characters from Kristen Ashley’s Rock Chick Series and The Dream Man Series! I have always been a KA fan and especially (when it comes to her Rock Chick and Dream Man Series) I simply will never get enough. Charlotte “Lottie” McAlister is Jet’s Sister and Smithie’s Headlining Dancer. She has had years of watching her sister (and the other Rock Chicks) meet their man and yet, she is still riding solo. Now that her biological clock is ticking, she is desperate to find her man and start a family. When her life is unexpectedly put in jeopardy (welcome back to the Rock Chick World) Smithie hires Hawk Delgado (yummy Dream Man) to put protection detail on her. Mo Morrison is large and in charge. He knows he is not supposed to fall in love with his “job” and yet, Lottie is everything he never knew he wanted. As the two fall madly in love with each other, they have to keep their hands off until the job is done and catch the man who is trying to harm her.

Told in multiple POV, Quiet Man is an enjoyable read that will appeal to Rock Chick and Dream Man fans because it brings back so many of our favorite characters. The writing style is KA Rock Chick style with a few twists of fun. Mo’s friends introduce an entirely new group of characters to swoon over. Additionally, Mo’s family was fun and enhanced the story greatly.

Overall, I highly recommend Quiet Man to KA fans who want to get back with the Rock Chicks and enjoy a HEA for Jet’s sister Lottie! Novellas are not my fave because I prefer to dive deep into a story however, Lottie and Mo were a sweet little delight! I will forever be a faithful KA fan and especially when the Rock Chicks are in the mix, my Kindle and I are ready and waiting!

Great addition to the Rock Chick series

I love KA’s Rock chick series and have been waiting for Lottie to get her HEA. love how the two series got together and I got to visit with old fav like the hot bunch and introduced to new characters like Hawk’s crew. Susannah Jones is fabulous as usual bringing all the characters to life. Her Lottie is strong, sassy and sexy as can be and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Just what I needed

This is my first time experiencing this author and she did not disappoint. I loved the bond between all the characters, their personalities and heart. Even thought I have not read the earlier book's, this was easy to follow. Mo and Lottie were the perfect example of opposites attract. He was closed and not looking for another relationship and sh was ready for a family. But when they met they weren't ready for the spark.

Real feel good book

I love Kristen Ashley’s style of writing and it’s difficult for me not to like one of her books.this one hasn’t disappointed at all, it was a great book very much a rock chick type of book. There was some action and the hilarious back and forth dialogue (as well as the inner monologues too). The hot scenes came quite late on this book but she packed enough there anyway. I love the Lotte got her happy ending.
As always Susannah Jones delivered an amazing performance, I just can help but enjoy the books she narrates she gives us every emotion so perfectly we feel the sadness, worry, humour, etc.

Gutted it took me so long to read

Quiet Man: Dream man by Kristen Ashley
I put off reading this for ages but I’m gutted I did. Lottie jet sister is main character and while dancing for smithie develops a stalker. Smithie hires Hawk because they wanted to keep hot bunch and rock chicks out of it.
Mo is a commando that works for Hawk and within seconds of meeting Lottie falls hard. They do a great job building sexual tension because Mo keeps it professional while protecting lottie.
I love that all previous characters are involved across different book series. I’ve just got Mag and Evie/Evan book for Christmas so looking forward to that.

A book with steam and action and of course an HEA!

This was a bodyguard romance full of action. Lottie has a stalker and Mo is signed up to protect her. I love that Lottie is this fiercely independent woman, and although she’s going through this scary time, she still knows what she wants (Mo) and goes for it. There’s an undeniable chemistry between these two right from the start and when they finally give in, the heat is scorching. Mo definitely lives up to the title of this book. He’s a brooding man of few words, but I loved all his inner monologue.

I love these 1001 DARK NIGHTS novellas, as we really get a great introduction into a world and I loved meeting all the characters that I now know have their own books. Mo’s sisters are hilarious!

Susannah does a great job of voicing both Lottie and Mo’s chapters. She has a range of voices and give us all the emotions too.

A great introduction to Kristen’s writing, I’m looking forward to reading more of her books now.
