Review: Mystery Man (Dream Man #1) by Kristen Ashley

Mystery Man

Mystery Man (Dream Man #1) by Kristen Ashley



While drinking cosmopolitans, Gwendolyn Kidd meets the man of her dreams. Then she takes him home. Then she wakes up alone. But her fear that she lost her dream man turns into a relationship with a mystery man when, night after night in the dead of night, he comes back for more. Hoping it will blossom into something real, she lets him.

But she doesn’t even know his name.

Gwen’s struggling with the decision to end their crazy non-relationship when her sister-from-hell, Ginger’s best friend pays a visit and warns Gwen that if she and her sister don't get smart, they'll both get d-e-a-d, dead. Gwen has no clue what’s going on but she’s used to Ginger’s antics and decides to lay the problem on her sister’s biker boyfriend's doorstep. Bad choice. She hits the Denver Underground radar with a big, loud ping.

This means Gwen’s Mystery Man, Cabe “Hawk” Delgado has to step in to keep her safe. But when Hawk gets a dose of Gwen in the daylight, he makes the decision that he finally wants real with Gwen. However when Gwen gets a dose of badass, bossy, straight-talker Hawk in the daylight, she decides she’s done.

Thus begins the head-to-head of the Commando vs. Cosmo Girl as Hawk woos Gwen in his own unique way, Gwen survives firebombs, drive-bys, kidnappings, hot pursuits by biker hotties and gorgeous police detectives and discovers the heartbreaking reason why Hawk kept her at arm’s length.

And as all this happens, Gwen finds that her sister’s troubles are serious trouble and she must decide who to keep alive: her sister-from-hell or the man of her dreams.



4 out of 5 stars

This was a fantastic story! There was just so much going on throughout that I had a hard time putting it down. 

Gwen and Hawk/Cabe are great characters and together they are hot! Both guarded but opening up and coming together. It was intense ride filled with drama and passion. I laughed and had tears, enjoying it all. I liked them both so much but at the same time they frustrated me and I wanted to throttle them because they were both stubborn individuals. Hawk is a seriously demanding (sometimes over the top) alpha male and Gwen didn't always make the best choices. Together, these elements helped to make a great story but there were a lot of these back and forth moments so it got a bit wearing.

There was also the story about Gwen's sister Ginger and I liked how that story, and Gwen and Hawks relationship intertwined. I thought everything was really well written and the character development was great and really detailed. It was a very full story with a lot going on. I got slightly confused in the beginning because there was just so much but it all came together nicely.

The story is from Gwen's POV and the epilogue is from Hawks. Oh my goodness the epilogue was intense! Loved it!

I really enjoyed it and loved all the elements of drama and suspense combined with such an intense love story. There were just so many great moments! And even though I thought some parts were drawn out, I still thought it was an excellent read. This is the start of a series so lots of characters where introduced. Holy goodness sexy alpha males everywhere. I cannot wait to read more!
