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….

Love this Mystery Man

If you could sum up Mystery Man in three words, what would they be?

Sweet, sexy, heartfelt

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hawk was a great character throughout. Enough vulnerable with a whole lot of tough.

What does Kate Russell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great voice for the character of Gwen. I felt she was Gwen. Loved when she was describing the valentino's. She did that perfectly. I just wished she didn't speak so softly throughout. That got annoying when I couldn't hear the words.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Hawk describing what was expected of his woman. Would love the hot guy to sneak into my bedroom for a year and a half.

Any additional comments?

This book gets 5 stars from me. I felt it. The characters sucked me in. I loved being Gwen throughout this book. I love how they both screwed up the relationship so badly and they forgave each other and tried again. It was sweet. I was thrilled with the ending. By then, they were family.

You will love it!

Where does Mystery Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This audiobook ranks in the top 10 books I have listened to!

What did you like best about this story?

This story is well written, keeps you on your toes, and has interesting and well-developed, lovable characters. It is read really well too!

Difficult to pick a fave scene, but... I really liked the scene where Hawk has been abducted and is talking on the phone with Gwen.

I laughed and cried a little throughout the book. There are some sad background stories.

I could listen to this book over and over.

What did you love best about Mystery Man?

I love the narrator. Kate Russell created a persona for each of the characters Kristen Ashley developed. The story was gripping and introduced a wonderful stream of characters to follow in other books.

What other book might you compare Mystery Man to and why?

The Rock Chick series that is mentioned in this book is amazing!!! Kristen Ashley brings the characters to life and makes you feel all of them.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene is when Cabe comes clean and tells Gwen how he feels about her. Second would have to be their first real date, the one with the Jimmy Choos. Then again I liked all of the scenes and it's too hard to choose just one.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed and drew in breath and held it for most of this book.

Worth my credit!!

So...I've JUST discovered Kristen Ashley and now I feel like I should gobble up all her books!! Mystery Man was very entertaining with so many LOL moments I wondered if people around me thought I was going nuts laughing to myself. Her guys are hot, steamy and, yeah, probably superheroes too **sigh**. Gwen's inner ramblings were so realistic I felt like I knew her personally. My only gripes were a few repetitive words but this didn't detract from the story. All in all, knocked this one out of the ball park. Diving into Wild Man as we speak for more deliciousness!!

Narrator was also awesome in bringing these characters to life.

Sweet, hot, sexy adventure

I've read this series multiple times and it never disappoints. The characters are awesome and the narrator is really good. It's a blend of hard and sweet, with good action in between.

A Great Start to a HOT Series!

Any additional comments?

As a first book in a series, I have high hopes that they are going to grab me, pull me in and never let me go... and this book did not disappoint! I actually got this book in audio form and loved it! Gwen and Kabe "Hawk" are great characters and a very unlikely couple that hasn't been heard of before.I have read a TON of romance books in the past years and Kristen Ashley gave me something new to love. This book has action, adventure, mystery and an extremely hot/demanding man that I would LOVE to come home to at night!I can't wait to get through the second book. I have high hopes.

LOVED THIS BOOK!!

This was my 1st Kristen Ashley. It certainly hasn't been my last! I've never read/listened to a writer like her. I loved the stories, and while I'm not sure I want a man like the ones she writes, I SURE DO LOVE READING ABOUT THEM. Her hero's are NOT politically correct and I have to say that's a refreshing change, they sound like they should be. If you like ALPHA males and strong women, then these books are for you. The NARRATOR IS GREAT!! HOPE THEY CONTINUE TO USE HER VOICE FOR MORE OF KA'S BOOKS!! I ONLY HOPE MORE KRISTEN ASHLEY BOOKS MAKE IT ON AUDIBLE!!!!

I absolutely loved this story

Where does Mystery Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's one of my favorites.Perfect story. It didn't end to soon or last to long. I stayed awake until 3:00am listening to it. Hawk was the perfect alpha male and although Gwen acted a bit slutty, immature and stupid sometimes I couldn't help but love her. I also liked the secondary characters.

What other book might you compare Mystery Man to and why?

Not sure.

What about Kate Russell’s performance did you like?

The narrator made it very entertaining. Her voices of the different characters was perfect. Not sure that I would have enjoyed it as much reading the book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Listen to your man.

Any additional comments?

Perfect book. I would love to see it on the big screen.

Wow! Just Wow!!!

For those of you who are familiar with Kristen Ashley you already know that this woman is pure brilliance! She knows exactly how to blend strong female leads with rough and tumble alpha males into a sometimes funny, sometimes sweet, and ALWAYS sexy story!

I am kind of ambivalent towards the narrator... I had hoped for SO much more since this is a Kristen Ashley book but I find myself disappointed. There is a brilliant rant that could have been given so much zing, zip, pop, to really make this audiobook so much better but the opportunity to take it to the next level wasn't reached.

Still, I LOVE the writer and would and do recommend the audiobook to all Kristen Ashley fans!

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.
