Wild Man (Dream Man #2) by Kristen Ashley

While filling her display case in her bakery, the bell over the door sounds and Tessa O’Hara looks up and sees the man of her dreams. Within thirty seconds he asks her out for a beer. Thirty seconds later, she says yes. But after four months of falling in love, she discovers he’s an undercover DEA Agent investigating the possibility she’s involved in her ex-husband’s drug business

Obviously Tess decides this means it’s over.

But DEA Agent Brock Lucas disagrees. A man on a mission who’s really committed to his job, he’s spent years in the underbelly of Denver with the dregs of society. And spending four months with Tess who’s as sweet as her cupcakes, he seriously enjoyed his job. But during Tess’s interrogation, Brock learns the devastating secret Tess is carrying and he’s determined to be the man who helps her heal as well as take her back as she walks on the wild side.

As wild and sweet mix, they face challenge after challenge of family struggling with history and terminal illness. Not to mention, Tess’s ex-husband, the drug lord and Brock’s ex-wife, who has a very big playbook are scheming to tear them apart.

But Brock Lucas has wild in him and once in his past on the trail of vengeance he let that wild loose, making a mistake that he would have no idea years later will put his sweet Tess in the position to pay his penance.

5/5 stars

“You wanna tell me, sweetness, how dessert for seventeen people translates into seven pies and two cakes?” Brock asked.”

 I swear, I'm packing my stuff and heading to Denver. The first time we met Brock it was not a pleasant meeting, but he definitely made it up to us in this book. He's such an alpha male that sometimes it comes off as a little abrasive, but it somehow works with him. Tess is sweet and made a great addition to him and his family. At first I didn't see how they would mesh together considering she came off as kinda a damaged wet noodle and of course she surprised me by standing up for herself and her man. I love this series and love Elvira. She cracked me up. I'm definitely going back to read the Rock Chick series since those guys pop up every once in a while during these books and I didn't realize this series was a spin-off series. I would recommend this series to anyone who likes romance with totally alpha men and a dose of comedy to break up the tension.
