I just started Knight last night. I don't know what to think. LOL! More later.....


Yeah, that's what I though when reading it, lol. WTF? LOL I think if I had read other books by this author before Knight I would have been more prepared for her style because even among her other heroes Knight is..different. I kept thinking this guy must be in the mafia with his street dialog, controlling nature and paranoia. Shocked I'm going to go back for a reread sometime now that I'm more used to her style.

[I'm having the same problem with Wild Man. It doesn't seem to have the pep or sensuality of Mystery Man. Maybe I'll skim to the end as well.


Thank you for saying that, I was wondering if it was just me.

I am liking The Gamble. I gave it another try and when the bickering stopped at around 10% the story got good. There is a mystery and I was unable to guess the villain for a long time. I liked that the story took place in the Colorado mountains. Reading about them snowmobiling and the descriptions of the scenery was cool and I liked both lead characters (once they were done arguing).

I don't remember any humorous moments that made me laugh.

This is only .99 cents at B&N, certainly worth trying, thanks for the rec!

I'm currently on a Kristen Ashley glom. Right now I'm reading Motorcycle Man and have had a few LOL moments.

I'm up-to-date on the Colorado Mtn series and the 'Burg series. I haven't read the Rock Chick series, but I'm thinking that I'll have to do that since some of those "Hot Guy Heroes" have shown up in a few of the other books.

I read Knight and unlike some, I enjoyed it, so looking forward to the next one in that series.

I had downloaded Playing for Keeps by Mathewson but haven't read it yet. Might have to take a break from Ashley and read it next. LOL

I am in the middle of the Rock Chick series and am wondering if anyone knows if Luke will be getting his story?
I have really enjoyed a Kristen Ashley glom this summer with my favorites being (not in order): Play It Safe, Games of the Heart, Heaven and Hell, For You, and Mystery Man. I see her new book about Chase from the Colorado Mountain Series will be out July 25th.

I'm gearing up for Motorcycle Man, having just finished Law Man!

So far Mystery Man is my favorite.

I am cruising through Motorcycle Man, this one might be my new favorite! He is so outrageous, hilarious. Also liking that this one is a reasonable 330 pages, the 900+ page installments she puts out are really longer than the story warrants.

I just read my first Kristen Ashley book. I read Motorcycle Man and I enjoyed the ride, heh, heh. I realize now it is part of a series, so I better read the other ones too.

The funny thing is that all the things that usually bother me in self-published works like spotty editing and grammar didn't bother me here. It was like I was carried along by the force of the hero's personality. And what a hero! An alpha male to out-alpha other alpha males. He was blunt. He was coarse. He was an ass. And I liked him. Huh. Very Happy

Perfect description! Out of the Dream Man series there are two that I really enjoyed, Mystery Man and Motorcycle Man. The rest were kind of a slog to get through, though they had their moments.

So now I'm wondering what KA book to pick up next..Tack is going to be a hard act to follow. Very Happy
