Book review:Motorcycle Man (Dream Man #4) by Kristen Ashley
FIRST TIME IN PRINT!
January 28th 2014
Get ready to ride . . .Tyra Masters has had enough drama to last a lifetime. Now, she's back on track and looking forward to her new, quiet life. Until she meets the man of her dreams. The tattooed, muscled biker plies her with tequila-and the best sex of her life. She knows it isn't the tequila and hot sex talking. He's the kind of man she's always wanted. Unfortunately, he's also her new boss . . .
Kane "Tack" Allen has a rule. He doesn't employ someone he's slept with. So when he learns he spent last night in bed with his new office manager, he quickly fires Tyra. Yet when Tyra stands up to him and fights for her job, Tack is intrigued. He tells her she can keep her job on one condition: no more sex. Ever. But as things heat up between them, Tack finds that he'll be the one breaking all the rules...
Ok this was a tough book for me and here's why. I have heard a whole, whole lot about Kristen Ashley books. All good stuff trust me. Of course this made me very curious so when the opportunity came about to read one of her books for review i jumped on it. One of the big issues when i finished was that i realized i needed to read the previous books in the series first. I feel this is one of those books you cannot read as a stand alone. I can usually read most books without previous ones but i felt too lost with this one. Took to much guessing and assuming. Is the story good and interesting? Oh yes i can say that it is. Tyra and Tack are so way different at the beginning of this book it's not even a little funny. I thought to myself after the first chapter that Tyra is way vanilla and Tack is man slut. Way different backgrounds and ideas on everything it seems. It took me most of the book to warm to Tack and i really love alpha guys in my books but he was a little much for me. Tyra was a kick ass from the start but also afraid of Tack and putting herself out there. There was a little to much dialog that i don't think was needed and was filled with more slang than was necessary BUT also some of that dialog was so poignant it could bring you to tears. So yeah i was all over the place with this one. The ending chapters of the book is what really slammed it home i needed to read the previous books first as the characters (main) were in this book also and at the end play a big part. I was totally lost in there trying to figure out what the author was talking about because i didn't have those characters stories. In conclusion this was a very good book but my recommendation is to not start with this one but to go back to the first book in this series and start there. I have been told by others to go back even father to the Rock Chick series first as well. Many are hooked on this series so i believe it's worth your while to give them a definite try.
