Mystery Man

Mystery Man 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.

I was rec'd this story on Twitter last night. I was looking for something to read but honestly had no clue what to read and @pumpkinheadmi2 lead me here.

Okay so I had no problems with the story. I thought Cabe or Hawk as he's referred to most in the story, is hot as hell. I had no problems with his take charge attitude, in fact he was hot as hell. I did however get tired of the word babe, and baby. Everyone was babe or baby. Gwen's friends were babe, Hawk called her babe. He would use it as an answer to everything.

Now on to the other things going on in this story. It seems that everything that could go crazily wrong with a person happens to Gwen. Her sister, Ginger, is some deep shit. She goes to see her sister's ex, Dog. He works at a car/motorcycle custom and restoration shop and oh yeah its the base for the local motorcycle club. Tack is the president of the MC and he sees Gwen and he's decided he wants her. Too bad she's been seeing (sorta) a mystery man.  I say mystery because Gwen doesn't know his name. He slips in to her house when he wants, fucks her good and then leaves in the night. She doesn't have the balls to tell him to stop coming.

Now he's not a mystery anymore because with all of the shit Ginger has going on he's out in the open and he's claiming her as his woman and she's pissed. She doesn't know what is going on. She doesn't know who he is, just that he's been in her bed for the past year and a half.

Shit just keeps getting worse and Gwen can't let her guard down and that's what Hawk wants. She just doesn't to be hurt. She was devastated when her husband cheated and Hawk meant more than the ex did.

So much going on and while I'll admit that there were times I was terribly confused by all the craziness going on in the story-line, I was hooked. I stayed up way too late reading. I started reading as soon as I woke up this morning. This goes to show that Ms. Ashley can spin a tale. Check it out!!
