Review/recenzija: Dream Man by Kristen Ashley

So I decided to take some time again and write another review in english. It's nice to know that I may have some new readers and booklovers who started  fallowing this blog.
Thank you, ladies and gentleman, for stopping by! <3

Also I'm gonna have to upgrade my bio a little bit now, so you new guys can get to know me better. It will probably take some time, but I'll get there. :)
Anyway, this week I prepared a new series for you, the Dream Man by Kristen Ashley.
There are four novels in this series:

1. Mystery Man
2. Wild Man
3. Law Man
4. Motocycle Man



Mystery Man

I have to admit that this small dark spark inside of me is intrigued by the thought of having a mystery lover, an unknown man, a possibly dangerous person, in my bed.
But I did say small spark, didn't I? The one can easily be killed with a fire extinguisher usually known as common sense...

I did not like the fact Gwen was having sex with an unknown man who was constantly breaking into her apartment. It doesn't sound realistic- but hey, what do I know...(seriously, the guy could be a murderer, hiding in her bed!)

Another thing that really bothered me was the reaction her family had towards Hawk. So what if he was a military man? You can trust the man knowing just this one information about him?

And finally, what right does Hawk have to order her around about every single thing? It's not about being bossy or arrogant or even protective. It's about not respecting another person and their right to make decisions and mistakes.
Wild Man


He works undercover. She's his assignment.

That was enough for you to want to read this book, wasn't it? :D

We meet Brooks in Mystery Man, and I have to say that my first thought of him was: what an asshole!

So this is my official apology to the Wild Man himself: you're the real MVP :P

I loved Tessa and Brooke, their chemistry and persistence. Read it and you'll see why!




Law Man

Mara Hanover is shy. Really shy. Sometimes she can't even speak without looking like an idiot. Poor girl. :P
And well, she's in love with her neighbour, a handsome police detective with whom she never even spoke.

For me, that was enough to make me interested in how were they going to make things work. It would need a special man to win this special girl. And we already knew Mitch was a determined guy...


What makes Mitch Lawman a great character is his admirable patience. He's dealing with a beautiful woman, blinded by her fear of life, and still he accepts her troubled past and the people who come with it.

His presence is so calming and makes you feel real hope between those pages.

Motocycle Man

This was my favourite book in the Dream Man series.

Some people say that they didn't like Tyra because she didn't know what she wanted and was breaking up with Tack every time they had some kind of problem. I really do not see anything bad about that. Actually, I like it. Maybe she was not right by giving up on them everytime they fought, but she did show some teeth, and that's exsactly what Tack needed. She was spirited and determined to find the man she new she deserved.
Yes, they would fight, but they would also talk, and make up.
And that's why I like her better than Gwen from Mystery Man- Tyra would eat Hawk alive.

Also, Tack is not the man I would usually like cuz I'm not so crazy about bikers and the lifestile doesn't appeal to me, but he did capture my attention. I can't precisely describe why but I do know that my favourite characters are the one I simply LIKE. No explenation needed. I just feel them.
So obviously I just felt Tack is the man in this series.

Do not miss him!





So basicly, I already gave 4 star to this series on Goodreads so I cannot say I was disappointed with it. There are always details one could write better but who says it would be perfect if I had a say in it?

What I liked most were the female characters. It was reallly possible to imagine each one of the women, especially  the shy one, Mara. I don't know if you would agree on that with me, but on occasions I found her so sweet and sometimes she pissed the h*** out of me- but I could see her face in my mind every step of the way and read every emotion on it.
And I adored Tyra! She showed us some claws and I can easily compare her with Chloe Mills from Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren. Chloe and Tyra are the real women with power and the kind of characters I really like to read about. They hide some deep emotions but that doesn't mean you can f*** with them and live to brag about it.


And that would be all I have to say this week. I hope you found something of your interest and will be visiting this blog next week too! 

For all of you who liked Kristen Ashley, maybe you can share with us some other books  you have read by the same author?



Until then

Za sve vas koji čitate moje recenzije na hrvatskom, ne brinite, i dalje ću ih pisati. Uz to ću se ipak potruditi što više napisati na engleskom, jer volje ne nedostaje- problem je obično vrijeme.

Danas vam tipkam o serijalu Dream Man autorice Kristen Ashley.

Tu nas čekaju četiri zanimljiva naslova:

1. Mystery Man
2. Wild Man
3. Law Man
4. Motocycle Man



Mystery Man


Moram priznati da postoji neka mala zločesta iskrica u meni koja jače zatinja na pomisao da postoji neki  misteriozni ljubavnik, nepoznati  i možda pomalo opasan frajer u mojem krevetu.
Ali naglasak je na maloj iskrici, nekoj koju može ugasiti malo jači hladan tuš.

U ovom romanu nije mi se nimalo sviđalo što se glavna junakinja, Gwen, godinu dana seksala s nepoznatim frajerom koji joj je još k tome bez najave provaljivao u stan. To mi ne zvuči nimalo realistično-iako nemam iskustva s takvim stvarima pa možda bolje da šutim. Danas je svašta moderno...(sad najozbiljnije, tip je mogao biti pomahnitali ubojica koji bi se nakon pokolja skrivao u njezinom krevetu!)

Druga bezvezna stvar: reakcije njene obitelji na Hawka. Pa što ako je frajer vojno lice, ta jedna informacija bi odmah trebala značiti da je potpuno pouzdan? Moj tata bi ga sumnjivo gledao prvih godinu dana bez obzira koliko ja godina imala i koliko ga drugi hvalili.

I na kraju, Hawkovo naređivanje me izbacilo iz takta. Tu se čak više ne radi o običnom šefovanju ili aroganciji. Ja sam se osjećala vrlo omalovažavano, a samo sam čitala knjigu. Ovaj definitivno nije frajer za mene.

 Wild Man

On je tajni agent, a ona je njegov zadatak.

Već nakon te jedne informacije poželjeli ste pročitati, zar ne? :D

Broocka smo već upoznali u prvom romanu iz serijala i moram priznati da mi se tamo nije nimalo sviđao u toj mjeri da sam ga smatrala običnim šupkom.

Ovime se gospodinu Neukroćenom (da ne kažem divljem :D) službeno ispričavam!

Jako su mi se sviđali Tessa i Broock, kemija među njima i njihova upornost. Pročitajte i uvjerite se zašto!




Law Man

Mara Hanover je sramežljiva. I to jako sramežljiva. Ponekad čak pred njim ne može izgovoriti običnu rečenicu, a da se totalno ne osramoti. Siroče :D

Meni je to bilo dovoljno da me zainteresira kako će srediti stvari. Stvarno je potreban poseban mučkarac da stane na kraj tako "posebnoj" curi. A već otprije znamo da je Mitch prilično odlučan momak...

Ono što Mitcha Lawmana čini odličnim likom je njegovo divljenja vrijedno strpljenje. Ima posla s lijepom ženom koja je potpuno zasljepljena strahom od onoga što život može biti, a on opet prihvaća njezinu problematičnu prošlost i sve što s njome dolazi u paketu.
Njegova pojava bila mi je tako prekrasno smirujuća, a što je najbolje, lik mu zaista pobuđuje nadu u bolje sutra.


Motocycle Man

Ovo je moj omiljeni roman u serijalu.

Neki knjigoljupci komentiraju kako im se nije sviđao lik Tyre jer kao žena nema pojma što želi i prekida s Tackom svaki puta kada bi iskrsnuo neki problem. Ja u tome ne vidim baš ništa lošega. Zapravo mi se to baš i sviđa. Možda nije bila u pravu s tim silnim odustajanjima od njihove veze svaki puta kada bi se posvađali, ali pokazala je zube i to je točno ono što je Tacku trebalo. Žena ima duha i odlučna je naći muškarca kakvog zna da zaslužuje.

Da, ona i Tack često bi se svađali, ali unatoč tome uspjeli bi razgovarati i pomiriti se.
Zbog toga je ujedno volim više od Gwen iz prvog romana- Tyra bi Hawka živoga pojela!

Uz to, Tack je upravo tip muškarca kakvog bi se ja inače klonila jer nisam baš luda za bikerima i njihov stil života mi nije nimalo primamljiv, ali Tack mi je definitivno privukao pažnju. Ne mogu baš točno opisati zašto, ali znam da inače najviše volim likove koji mi se jednostavno SVIĐAJU, a da uopće ne moram i nemam potrebe objašnjavati zašto. Jednostavno ih osjetim.

Očigledno je Tack bio moj savršeni muškarac u ovom serijalu.

Nemojte ga propustiti!




Zapravo sam na Goodreadsu već ocijenila serijal s 4 zvjezdice tako da ne mogu reći da sam bila razočarana. Uvijek postoje detalji koje bih ja možda riješila drugačije, ali tko kaže da bi i moje rješenje bilo savršeno?

Najviše su mi se ipak sviđali ženski likovi jer je zaista bilo moguće zamisliti svaki od njih, osobito sramežljivu Maru. Ne znam biste li se složili sa mnom, ali postojali su trenuci kada bi mi bila prava slatkica, ali ponekad bi mi bogme svjetski išla na živce. I to je ono najbolje- u svakom trenu točno sam mogla zamisliti njezin izraz lica i emocije koje pokušava sakriti.
I definitivno sam obožavala Tyru (ponavljam :D). Ona je prava opasna mačka i lako je mogu usporediti s Chloe Mills iz Prekrasnog gada Christine Lauren. Te dvije žene su pravi karakteri i razlog zašto volim ovakvu vrstu književnosti. Skrivaju prave duboke emocije, ali ne dozvoljavaju nikome da ih za*ebava. 

I mislim da bi to bilo dosta za ovaj tjedan :D Nadam se da ste našli nešto zanimljivo među mojim naklapanjima.

Ako ste slučajno čitali još koji roman od iste autorice, komentirajte i preporučujte, a do sljedećeg tjedna
