"I adore Kristen Ashley's books!" (Maya Banks, New York Times bestselling author)

"Kristen Ashley's books are addicting!" (Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author)

"There is something about them [Ashley's books] that I find crackalicious." (DearAuthor.com Kati Brown 2012-01-00)

About the Author

Kristen Ashley grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana, and has lived in Denver, Colorado, and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multigenerational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland, and Kristen grew up listening to the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon, and Whitesnake.

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

More About the Author

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen's Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing's changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

Can't resist adding my two cents to the barrel about this author's quality and style!

I'm a teacher and part time editor and as such freaking HATE bad grammar, punctuation, spelling and general typos in my leisure reading. Having said that, the style of this author appealed to me so much that I can honestly say my brain must have switched out most of these typos that many have mentioned because I didn't notice enough for them to put me off. I will agree that there are some meandering sentences that are hard to follow and that I had to reread a few times, but I felt that it was in keeping (if a little distracting) with what the author was trying to achieve for the voice of the character.

I've now read the Colorado Series, the Dream Man Series, and the Rock Chick Series by this author, thoroughly enjoyed them, and I feel the same can be said for all of her books. Typos happen - especially for Indy authors who don't have a gazillion professional editors at their beck and call, and the characters and story lines of her books, I felt, are compelling enough for me to overlook other issues.

Now having said all that - I can definitely see where some may have trouble following her style, or find it irritating when her characters ramble. As someone who has a rambling mind though, I found it refreshing to see characters like me in print.

Plus I'm a sucker for an Alpha male and a girl with sass.

THE PLOT(ish):
Lauren Grahame is looking to find herself. She's over 40, divorced, jobless and overweight. Enter the town of Carnal, Colorado, a job as a waitress in a biker bar and a sexy new boss, Tatum Jackson. Life may not turn out how Laruen expected, but she's sure gonna enjoy the ride!

THE GOOD:
1. Older characters. I read a lot of romance, and this one of the few romances with an older couple having hot sex and lots of it. Thank god for someone who steps outside the box!

2. Interesting premise. How great to have someone step off the beaten path and reinvent herself as a biker babe!

3. Plot twists. Okay, this isn't Shakespeare or Ludlum or even J.K. Rowling. But it does deviate from our usual romance boilerplate, and that's awesome.

THE BAD:
It has to be said. This book needs an editor, pronto. It should never have been published in its current incarnation. The run on sentences, the repetitious dialogue, the superfluous description, the mistakes in punctuation...ugh. The book was thousands of words too long.

THE BOTTOM LINE:
If you like romance books and you read a lot of them, the bad writing won't bother you. If you like well written fiction, you probably won't be able to finish this.

I read about this novel on the discussion blogs, but I was turned off by the 40 something hero and heroine. I kept putting off reading it, but I finally broke down after it received two good reviews. I AM SO GLAD I DID! While the hero came off as a jerk in the first few pages, he warmed up quick. He is an alpha male all the way. Once he makes his feelings known to the heroine, he is super sweet in a dominant, possesive way. The heroine was sweet with just enough sass. I warmed up to her after the first chapter and was not upset by her age anymore. The murder mystery added an extra element to an already good plot. On a side note, I feel like I got my money's worth too, because this was a long book. I normally can finish a book in about 3 1/2 hours...not so this time.

Overall, I loved this book and would definetly reread it. I will be checking out this author's other books. This novel is not the best written. There are editing mistakes and a few sentences that do not flow smoothly, but this did not detract from my enjoyment.

BTW- if the F-word bothers you, be warned. It is in this book a lot.

"How blessed are some people, whose lives have no fears, no dreads; to whom sleep is a blessing that comes nightly, and brings nothing but sweet dreams."
- by Bram Stoker -

"What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."
- by Ralph Waldo Emerson -

WOW!!! What a fabulous story! I love Sweet Dreams with everything I am, and it is my all-time favorite book to date. Ever. This was such an extremely long story and I didn't want it to end. Sadly there was an end. Jeez, Tate, you uber-hot (hot with a capital H), sexylicious specimen of a male wonder...wow, you are the epitome of Mr. Hotness in high perfection! Admittedly, this guy had an attitude and quite some flaws - he is bossy, demanding, annoying, and acts like a j**k at times - but that's what makes him so deliciously and deliriously special. YUM! Then again, he is such a caring, protective, sweet, and tender guy...sigh...he pushes all the right buttons of a woman's body and heart. Of course he makes my toes curl! I can't get enough of you, Tate!

Honestly, I am always so focused on the hero, yet Sweet Dreams features a superb heroine. Lauren kicks a**! Even when she is kind of 'lost' in the beginning of the plot, she can hold her own. She is sassy and a real smart-mouth. I adored this woman! And Tate will help her find herself again - she has to get rid of her being 'lost'.

Sweet Dreams lives and breathes dialogs - lots and lots of wonderful and hilarious dialogs! This story put a smile on my face, and there were many funny moments. On top of that, the author did a very fine job in developing many secondary characters as well. They're complex, yet so endearing. I love how Kristen writes about family dynamics! It makes me feel at home.
