Wild Man

Wild Man is the 2nd book in the Dream Man series from author Kristen Ashley. The publisher is Hachette Book Group. From the author’s website.~

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?

Thanks to the publisher, I was lucky enough to get a review copy from NetGalley. After reading Mystery Man, I had to start the next book in the series ASAP. While I really liked Mystery Man, I loved Wild Man.

I loved both Tessa and Brock from the very beginning. I could even let go of the fact he had to lie to her while undercover in the beginning because I liked them together so much. Tessa was already a very strong person. She left her ex-husband from an abusive relationship, without sharing these details with anyone, and started over on her own. I loved the instant attraction between Brock and Tessa. I really felt like they made each other stronger just by being together. Even after only reading 2 books from Ms. Ashley, I’ve come to expect some pretty sizzling chemistry and love scenes. Her readers will not be disappointed at all with Tessa and Brock. They really did have off the charts chemistry.

I now own all the books in the Dream Man series and can’t wait to dive into Law Man at the first possible opportunity. I have to thank so many of my twitter and Facebook friends for talking about her books. Kristen Ashley is now an auto-buy author for me.

I had trouble with this one. I think because I read right after Mystery Man, and felt like Tessa's voice was similar to the heroine in book one, and had issues with the ending. But, the chemistry in these books is amazing.
