CWW: Quiet Man by Kristen Ashley


Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. 
Generally, they're books that have yet to be released. 
It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.


Quiet Man by Kristen Ashley


Kristen Ashley excels at the full-length novel but, imo, her novellas can be a complete hit or miss. Never-the-less I want to read it! The Dream Man series was always a fav.


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.

Enormous. Scary.

Quiet.

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.

What book is your pick this week?

  1. Novellas can often be a hit or miss for me - regardless of who the author is. I think it's hard to develop a story and the characters in a limited number of pages and sometimes it just doesn't happen. Hope this is a good one!

    1. I like them when you already know the world and characters because the page time can just focus on the story and it can work. When they have to cram in world building, character development and a story it's too much.

  2. I'm trying not to look at upcoming releases as my list is growing too much! I hope you enjoy this when you get to read it.

    1. I like the Dream Man series and Chaos. I've read the odd book from her other series but not too many but will eventually. :)

  4. I hate to say this as a romance reader, but I have yet to read a Kristen Ashely book, though, I own one or two. I think I got them, because Ashley is one of those oft praised authors. I hope you love this, when you read it.

    1. Me too!
      It took me a while to settle into KA. She has a way of writing that actually drives me nuts... Crazy long sentences, weird turns of phrase etc but I got there in the end.

  5. I haven't read this one but it sounds like the kind of book that I might like. I do like stalkers in books, it gives the danger element that I like.

    1. KA has a few series where the stakes are high like that!

  6. Well I wonder what this novella would be like as I usually love KA's bossy alphas ;-)
