Mara Hanover follows a rating system when it comes to people. According to her calculation, she is a two point five girl and she is fine with it, never wanting 'more' than two point five men. However, when this sexy police detective Mitch Lawson moves just in front of her apartment door she suddenly finds herself wishing she is more than two point five as Mitch is a ten point five. And of course, in Mara's world, ten point fives do not associate themselves with two point fives.
Mara is suffering from a serious self-esteem issues and this annoyed me for most part of the book. I understand girls tend to have these issues, had this too but I was a teenager then. Mara, on the other hand, is in her late twenties or so, can't remember, but really, she is too old to still have that issues affect her life. So it was like another Bella in disguise *sigh*.
The redeeming part was Mitch. If not for Mitch, I would have stopped reading the story. Oh Mitch Lawson *swoon*. OMG. Just mentioning his name makes me want to re-read the book! I've just added Mitch on my to-day-dream-men list (which currently Dimitri Belikov- Vampire Academy tops the list, followed by Quinn O'Connor - Riley Jenson and Richard Zeeman - Anita Blake, respectively). I always love to read stories with dominating but softy alphas. And Mitch *day dreaming* I guess would top the list for human men *grins*. Law Man is an adult book but not much on sex scenes. And the fact that this is HEA (happily ever after) book, re-reading is very much possible, he will definitely stay with me for a long long time! There are too many things I wanna say about why I love him and the book but don't wanna give too much information to you dear readers *sweet smile*.
Law Man is my first book by Kristen Ashley and will definitely hook-up with her other men in the Dream Man series!
About the book:
Love is just around the corner . . .
Sweet, shy Mara Hanover is in love with her neighbor. For four years, she has secretly watched her dream man from afar. Handsome police detective Mitch Lawson is way out of her league. She's a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, and there's no way a guy like Mitch would want anything to do with her. But when Mara has a leaky faucet that she can't fix, it's Mitch who comes to her rescue.
Mitch has been eyeing his beautiful neighbor for a long time. He jumps at the chance to help her, and soon their formerly platonic relationship gets very hot and heavy. But when Mara gets a disturbing phone call from her cousin's kids, she gets pulled back into the life she's tried so hard to leave behind. Can the hot law man convince Mara to let go of her past-and build a future with him?
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.
