Mystery Man Review

What did I think of....

Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley?



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....

Genre's: Romance, Contemporary, Adult, Erotica, Dirty Romance, Chick-Lit, Romantic Suspense, Women's Fiction.

I absolutely adore Kristen Ashley, and this book only proves it.

Gwendolyn Kidd has had a visitor about once a week for a year and a half. She doesn't know his name. All she knows is he gives out-of-this-world orgasms, can easily get in her house without a key, and that the last part is partly because he can probably walk through walls. Oh, and she's sure that he is the one.
However, when her sister, Ginger, gets in trouble, Gwen turns into a target. Drive-by's, Fires, kidnappings and some serious amounts of cookie dough become the result. Oh, that, and when Gwen tries to tell her visitor that their "fling" is over, she learns his name, and finds that he is, in fact, not a vampire and her Great MM (Mystery Man) can be in sunlight.
Hawk Delgado knew that a relationship for him was impossible and gives Gwen everything he can. But when she's in danger, he steps up to the task of knight in cargo's, and learns more about his woman, and he can't stop himself from pursuing her.

The writing is superb, as usual, and makes you just sink into the story like you would a comfortable couch. The story is action-packed, hilarious, romantic and HOT.

Gwendolyn was a hoot to read, and I thoroughly enjoyed her.
But I think it's safe to say I enjoyed Hawk more. Vicariously, of course.

Gwen's friends, Cam and Tracey and Elvira, were great, and made me laugh so hard! Especially Elvira, Hawk PA. Cam's husband, Leo, was even better than Cam and Tracey, though. He was sweet, but so clueless! Love him!

My first pet peeve is Insta-love. Unless done really well, I call BS by the truckloads.
My second is love triangles. Again, unless done really well, I say neither.

Mystery Man had a love square. We had Hawk (obviously), we had Tack (President of the Chaos MC), and we had Mitch Lawson (Detective with Gwendolyn's case). They will have their own books later, but damn. My girl, Gwendolyn, was surrounded by HOT-ness!

I've always admired KA's love triangles/squares, because they are all done really well and with class. There is no hemming and hawing, dithering and eenie-meenie-minie-mowing. The women always know who they want. The others are just really hot eye candy.

I know, if you read it, you will love Mystery Man of the Dream Man series. Highly recommended.
