Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley – B/B+ I have recently discovered the reading crack* that is Kristen Ashley. Her writing is not for everyone. There are very long run-on sentences (some of which don’t make sense), some abuse of tenses and apostrophes… but. But. The stories are strong and if you like the alpha protector type who likes dirty talk and laugh out loud funny heroines (and heroes for that matter), an authentic girl posse who drinks cosmopolitans and eat cookie dough and other fattening things, this might be for you.
Mystery Man is the first book in the Dream Man series (but I started with book 4, Motorcycle Man because I’d heard that is the “gateway drug” – I’d heard right by the way).
Gwendolyn Kidd has been having the strangest relationship – 18 months earlier she met a hot sexy guy in a bar and with very (and I mean very) few words, found herself having the best sex of her life with him. They don’t exchange names or conversation. And he keeps turning up, every few days for more hot sex, in the middle of the night, then he says “Later, babe” and leaves. Matters come to a head when Gwen’s sister Ginger gets in a lot of trouble with a lot of bad people. Her Mystery Man, Cabe “Hawk” Delgado is a commando type and rides to the rescue.
