From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Ashley comes a new story in her Dream Man series…
Charlotte “Lottie” McAlister is in the zone. She’s ready to take on the next chapter of her life, and since she doesn’t have a man, she’ll do what she’s done all along. She’ll take care of business on her own. Even if that business means starting a family.
The problem is, Lottie has a stalker. The really bad kind. The kind that means she needs a bodyguard.
Enter Mo Morrison.
Mo doesn’t say much, and Lottie’s used to getting attention. And she wants Mo’s attention. Badly.
But Mo has a strict rule. If he’s guarding your body, that’s all he’s doing with it.
However, the longer Mo has to keep Lottie safe, the faster he falls for the beautiful blonde who has it so together, she might even be able to tackle the demons he’s got in his head that just won’t die.
But in the end, Lottie and Mo don’t only have to find some way to keep hands off until the threat is over, they have to negotiate the overprotective Hot Bunch, Lottie’s crazy stepdad, Tex, Mo’s crew of frat-boy commandos, not to mention his nutty sisters.
All before Lottie finally gets her Dream Man.
And Mo can lay claim to his Dream Girl.

If you are a fan of Kristen Ashley, I am sure you are familiar with her Dream Man series and her Rock Chick series. Well, what happens when you mix these two worlds in a novella? You get Quiet Man. Ever since KA announced this short story, I wanted to get my hands on it so badly and now I can say I enjoyed every second of reading this piece of writing.
So, Quiet Man, as I said, belongs in her Dream Man series but you’ll find characters from her Rock Chick series too. Mo Morrison is one of Hawk Delgado’s commandos (Mystery Man) and Lottie McAlister is Jet’s sister (Rock Chick Rescue). Lottie is a sassy and independent woman, working as a stripper and she wants more from her life. She is ready for the next step but she does not have a man. But what she does have is a stalker. Enter Mo. He is supposed to be her shadow 24/7 and that becomes a problem because of the sexual tension and the instant connection between him and Lottie. Has she finally found her dream man?
It was clear Lottie had claimed her man.
And he was that man.
I am a BIG fan of Kristen Ashley’s Dream Man series. I can’t say much about her Rock Chick series because it’s a long one and I only have read the first two books. But what I can say is that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novella that crossovers these two worlds. I loved Lottie and Mo together and how they put Lottie’s safety first before actually starting their relationship. But, oh boy.. When that starts, their chemistry is combustible! I also really loved catching up with some of my beloved KA characters and seeing this new couple get their HEA.
That was it.
He was the one.
I was his one.
And both of us knew it.
Therefore, my rating for Quiet Man is 4 STARS because I found it to be a great addition to the series and I loved seeing this crew of characters all over again. Also, of course, I enjoyed Mo and Lottie together, their connection and chemistry was on point. I love me some KA alpha and sassy KA heroine! If you like any of those two series by Kristen, I am sure you’ll enjoy this novella!
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
