Wild Man by Kristen Ashley

Wild Man (Dream Man, #2)Wild Man by Kristen Ashley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It took years for Bakery owner Tessa O'Hara to be willing to try dating again, but the moment she sees Brock Lucas her hesitation goes out the window, he is the man for her. He has an edge to him that is undeniable, blunt way of speaking but there is a softness that overcomes him when he is with Tessa that has her feeling safer than he has ever felt in his life. After four months of dating she is ready to take the next step, but that idea is shattered when she finds out Brock is not who she thinks he is, he is an undercover DEA agent who was investigating her to see if she still had connections to her ex-husband.

Even though Brock changed his name while with Tessa, everything he spoke about was true. He has given her time to seek him out, but after three months of her avoidance he has had enough, he wants her back. Convincing Tessa isn't as difficult as he thought, but as their new relationship moves forward hurdle after hurdle gets thrown there way, a crazy ex-wife whose jealousy has reared it's ugly head, an estranged member of the family fighting a terminal disease, and oh ya Tessa's ex won't leave her alone.

I was torn with this one initially, I was so mad at Brock I was not sure he would be able to redeem himself, but he did. I don't know how Kristen Ashley does it, but this is the third book of hers I have read thus far and I am enamored by her talented ways of taking complicated characters and staying true to who they are through out the story. Brock has a temper, you get that from the beginning but somewhere along the way you accept it and realize it is who he is, no trying to change it, you deal with it. I thought this was another fantastic story, highly recommend.
