Review: Wild Man (Dream Man #2) by Kristen Ashley

Book Blurb

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?

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Tess O’Hara has been seeing Jake for four months.  Things have been going great.  He was going slowly like she needed.  Then one night everything changed.  She found out what was really going on.  Jake was not what she thought.  On top of it all her ex-husband wouldn’t leave her alone and had dragged her into his criminal crap.  She was considering leaving Denver and moving to Kentucky.
She threw herself into her bakery and work, trying to get control of her life.  Three months later Jake/ Brock Lucas shows up at her house, demanding to collect on her promise to talk.  He knew her secret because he was there when she first voiced it.  His reaction made the difference.  He wanted this thing he had with her and after that information, so did she.
Of course things weren’t going to be easy with her ex-husband and his ex-wife.  They were both determined to come between Tess and Brock.
I’ve read most of the books from this author.  Her male characters are tough and rough around the edges.  I love that.  They know what they want, they are extremely loyal and they take care of what is theirs.
I also like the female sisterhood that developed with all the female characters.  They embrace each other and Elvira is a hoot.  Love her.  The author also includes a lot of the same characters in each book, so it’s fun to revisit them.  One of my favorite parts about reading a series is seeing past beloved characters. 
Tess was an awesome character.  She was sweet, smart and very observant.  I related more with her than any other characters I’ve read by this author.  I could see myself in her.  I also liked that she was over forty and owned her own business.  She was an excellent role model considering what she had dealt with.  I also loved that Brock saw her and knew how lucky he was to have her.  This story was swoon-worthy and fun to read.  I couldn’t put it down.

Then the author added family issues, ex issues and revenge.  It kept the characters and the reader on their toes.  Awesome addition to the Dream man series and a fabulous read.  I give it a 4.5 out of 5.
