REVIEW: Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley
Title: Sweet Dreams (Colorado Mountain #2)
Author: Kristen Ashley
Date Published: 4/23/11
Lauren Grahame has spent her whole life thinking something special was going to happen. She didn’t know what it was, she just knew it would one day be hers. But she learned the hard way that special wasn’t on offer.
So, after divorcing her cheating husband, Lauren searched for nothing special and she thought she found it when she landed a job as a waitress in a biker bar in Carnal. It was perfect: a nothing job in a nowhere bar in Nowheresville.
Then Tatum Jackson walked in. Part-owner of the bar, he took one look at high-class Lauren and wanted nothing to do with her. And he made this known, loudly.
Tate’s angry insults seared in her brain, Lauren decides the feeling is mutual and she doesn’t want anything to do with the gloriously handsome Tate Jackson. The clash of the bartender and barmaid begins but, even though Tate makes his change of mind clear (in biker-speak, a language Lauren is not fluent in), Lauren is intent on going her own way.
Until a serial killer hits Carnal and Lauren finds out Tate isn’t a bartender, he’s a bounty hunter. He stakes his claim for Lauren before he goes on the hunt for a killer but Laurie doesn’t speak biker nor does she understand bounty hunters and Tate comes back from the hunt to find his old lady has moved on.
Life throws curveball after curveball at Laurie and Tate. As secrets are revealed, women are brutally murdered, and Lauren tries to find her inner biker babe.
My Rating: 5 Steams
And Kristen Ashley does it again. I really don't think I can get enough of her!
Lauren and Tate's romance is a rocky one for sure. Especially in the beginning. Tate bashes Lauren and she decides no matter how good looking he is she wants nothing to do with him. Well, Tate knows there is something about Lauren and he really does not need it in his life right now, but he cannot deny his attraction to her. Now he has to find away to change the way she feels about him.
I loved that Tate was the Alpha personified! Kristen Ashley has a way of creating men who do not take Sh** from anyone. It is definitely their way or the highway.
Again, this novel is lengthy, but so worth the time! I love that each of the stories have such great plots with mystery. Kristen definitely keeps you guessing and makes the long ride action packed!
