Book Description

Has the world’s most devout bachelor just met his match?

Dedicated playboy Max McKenzie is used to being hotly pursued by any single female within striking distance. But a newspaper ad seeking a male for a long-term commitment intrigues him. And the woman who placed the ad captivates him even more . . .
Jeanie Leslie isn’t looking for Mr. Right. But when her scheme to help her sister meet her dream man backfires, the career consultant is confronted by a sensual stranger who tempts her to change her bachelorette ways. Will giving in to her growing desire for Max end in heartbreak for both of them? Or have a confirmed bachelor and a woman who refuses to marry—for love or money—finally met their perfectmatches?

Editorial Reviews


"Judy Gill has outdone herself in her new book 'Dream Man.' This story is not just one of romance, but adds many different twists out of the norm before the two special people are finally allotted their happiness... Drawn together by fate, these two tumble in and out of their relationship and it takes a near tragedy to make them realize some thing's are just made to be. Dying in a cave, the two cling to the love that was always meant to be. A good twist in the storyline, adventure always seems to steam up romance!" Reviewed by Shirley Johnson for MidWest Review

2.0 out of 5 stars .. April 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I should start this review by saying that Dream Man by Judy Griffith Gill is a re-release of a book that came out originally in 1990, then again in 2003.

When I read the synopsis, I thought the story had promise. However, I found it difficult to get through - the dialogue is stilted, situations unbelievable, and the pacing is all over the place.

The Hero and heroine meet and have an awkward lunch meeting, where he asks her about a job placement advert she placed in which she is seeking a man.
Wanted: Tall, mature (35-45) man, heroic in nature, preferably dark haired and blue eyed, capable of making long-term commitment. Must like children, country life, and classical music. Ability to play one or more instruments an asset. Term of employment, three weekends. Apply in person to Ms. Leslie.
After Max's brother prods him to answer the ad, he does so - and he and Jeanie Leslie spark off one-another from the get-go. Neither Max nor Jeanie think he is right for the 'job', so he leaves her after their meeting with a brief - and unexpected - kiss.

They meet a second time, and even though they are both commitment-phobic, he asks her to marry him. Not because he's in a bind, or thinks he's in love with her - in fact, I couldn't really figure out his motivations at this point. Jeanie balks (as she should), but still offers him a job writing love letters for a mystery client.

Amongst a lot of cluttery situations, he writes these letters to her instead of for the client. To Jeanie, they were a turn-on. To me, he seemed a bit stalker-y.

Throughout the book, there are references to the 'Bangles' referred to in the name of the trilogy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ugh. March 1, 2013

I just could not get over this book. It was so bogged down with the premise that her grandmother was a psychic. I've read better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dated story and unrealistic dialogue December 7, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was originally published as a Loveswept Romance in 1990 then re-released as an e-book in 2003. No matter how many times it's released, it just doesn't get any better. The story is okay but the dialogue between the characters is ridiculous. People don't talk like that and it's very distracting. I've read 2 books by this author and they both had the same theme of difficult women and dedicated men. I won't be reading anymore by Judy Griffith Gill.
Disclaimer: I received the Kindle book in exchange for my honest review.

More About the Author

Judy Griffith Gill discovered imagination at an early age because there was little entertainment besides books, comics, and cousins in the wilderness where she grew up. She loved all three and with the latter, acted out many scenes from the books and comics. This obsession with the written word and what can be done with it led to a career in writing--well, that and a neighbor who wouldn't leave her alone if she could't hear the sound of keys clicking madly away.

Time passed and she continued to write and to sell to different publishing houses and her seventh novel found a home at Bantam's former Loveswept line and she subsequently wrote two dozen books for them plus a handful or two more for other houses including Harlequin's short-lived Love and Laughter. "I used to get huffy," she says, "when people told me my books made them laugh. That wasn't my aim, but what the heck. I can't help it, so I learned to sit back and let humor happen right along with drama and pathos. If I can make readers both laugh and cry, I figure I've succeeded. At something."

When the mid-list "died" and with it, many of her markets, she didn't let that stop her--the internet and e-books had arrived and she eagerly dove into the new medium, writing new manuscripts and having them published electronically. Futuristic romance, fantasy romance, even erotica spewed out of her computer, needing only the touch of fingers to the keyboard to release that imagination. Then, a call came from someone who'd once worked at Bantam Books, offering a chance to get her backlist up and out and professionally marketed. What and opportunity! Now, under the auspices of Open Road Integrated Media, Gill has finally put most of her Loveswept list of zany, happy romances, complete with new covers, all together along with books she wrote subsequent to her stint at Bantam.
These books are available in all electronic formats for all electronic readers, including audible. Just look for Judy Griffith Gill under the e-book section of your favorite online store and check them out for good reading and great prices. And if you laugh, or cry, please let her know on FaceBook, on Twitter, on Goodreads...wherever you like to hang out--you'll probably find her hanging out there too.
