Wild Man Review

What did I think of...

Wild Man by Kristen Ashley

She's about to walk on the wild side . . .

While filling the display case in her bakery, the bell over the door sounds and Tessa O'Hara looks up to see the man of her dreams. Within thirty seconds he asks her out for a beer. But after four months of dating, she discovers he's an undercover DEA agent-and he's investigating her possible role in her ex-husband's drug business. For Tess, this means their relationship is over.

Brock disagrees. He's committed to his anti-drug mission, but he's fallen in love with the beautiful woman who's as sweet as her cupcakes-and he'll do anything to win her back. Standing between Tess and Brock are their own exes, one of them a drug lord who's determined to get what he wants. Now as danger threatens, can Brock break the rules he's lived by and let loose his wild side to protect the woman he loves?

Gosh, Wild Man has got to be one of my favorites in the Dream Man series! From the growly, wildness of Brock Lucas, to the sweet and sugariness of Tess O'Hara's mountainous swirl, this series has always made me feel the feels, laugh and truly escape my reality and delve into the world of Dream men.
In case you don't know, our sweet Tessa is a baker, and owns her own bakery. Her sweets (or so I read) are absolutely to die for, and Tess has many cake rack's at home that are known for never being empty. While we're on the subject of Tess, I just have to say, that she has got to be one of the sweetest Kristen Ashley heroines of all. Of course, the book three of this series, Law Man, features Ten Point Five Mara, and she definitely gives our sweet Tess a run for her money. But, I am of the opinion, that Tess is definitely still the sweetest, and most non-confrontational.
Brock Lucas, is one of the more growly heroes, and also one of the most caring, as he likes for his Tess to live a Teflon coated life, and doesn't ever want her to worry about anything, or need to; she must always feel safe. Which made him all the more endearing to read.
You have to know, that Brock Lucas in Wild Man, is Skull, from Mystery Man. Yes, I hated him in Mystery Man, too. But, after reading this book, that anger and hate immediately evaporated!
I know that this review was more of a character analysis, but really, for me, this book was all about the characters. But don't worry, there's plenty of action, sass, and wild hairs to go around!!
Highly recommended, but you do need to read the perquisite to this book, Mystery Man before you start Wild Man.
