I am a huge (HUGE) fan of the "Dream Man" series and the "Rock Chick" series. I have read and loved every single book. And so when I found out that Lottie was finally gonna get her happily ever after...and with one of Hawk's commando's too...I was tickled pink !!

”QUIET MAN” is categorized as a novella in the “Dream Man” series but seemed to be more of an installment of the “Rock Chick” series instead. I’ve never read any of the “Rock Chick” books but I’m sure die-hard KA fans will be excited for the chance to spend more time with these particular characters. While I liked the Hero and Heroine, I felt the plot could have been better. There was little to no angst and hardly any action. I’m used to a

Well folks, it finally happened. I’ve had my come to jesus moment and have moved on to the acceptance stage.

I keep thinking I’m going to get a different result because, at one time, Ms. Ashley could do no wrong in my eyes. Now, I need to come to terms with the fact that I may have just outgrown this author. It all feels rote at this point and I think I’m finally throwing in the towel.

Quiet Man, is a union of the Rock Chick and the Dream Man Series’ and a introduction to the “Dream” series heros. Mo is one of Hawk Delgado's commandos who we met in Mystery Man and Lottie is Jet’s (Rock Chick Rescue) little sister and a stripper at Smithie’s.

When Smithie receives threats against Lottie, he calls in Hawk and his commandos to protect her and find the guy making the threats. Mo Morrison is the quiet type. He’s always been professional, bu

description You might want to sit down because I didn't completely hate this book. 😂 It was better than the steaming pile of burning poop that was Rush's book, and it was also better than the less steamy poop that was Sharleen's book. 💩 Was it as good as any of the old Rock Chick books, no. 👎 However, I've given up on ever seeing a book from KA that I enjoy as much as that series. 😒 In any case, I am just going to list the things I liked and the things I didn't like in bullet form and leave it at that...📝

I enjoyed Quiet Man a lot, Lottie and Mo stole my heart!You can't imagine how excited I was when I find this one on my kindle and what I loved that it was a longer novella!


Lottie is a fantastic heroine and I'm happy that she found her dream man.Lottie and Mo's romance is sexy and fun.I loved the banter between these two.

These beautiful words whispered by the prophetic Kane "Tack" Allen at the end of Motorcycle Man are finally coming true for KA fans in her upcoming Dream Series. In this new spin-off, the Rock Chick and Dream Man worlds collide, as badass commandos from Mystery Man find their perfect dream women. The excitement begins with Quiet Man, a novella starring the lovable secondary characters Lottie McAlister (Rock Chick Rescue) and Mo Morrison (Mystery Man).

I know, I know ! I swore off KA! But I was waiting for years for a spinoff with Hawk’s boys. Ok so I didn’t hate it. That doesn’t mean I loved it. The resolution in this book was anticlimactic. It was almost as if she was too lazy to write the details, so she resolved the threat to the h quickly, then resorted to her old standby of boring decor descriptions and meaningless conversation and contrived drama. But this couple was actually great together despite the author trying to mess it up. But s ...more

Not going to lie that as a massive fan of Kristen Ashley's Dream Man and Rock Chick series, I had to take a few calming breaths before I started this book. After finally getting my shit together I was finally able to start this book without acting like a kid in a candy store... It was going oh so perfectly until the Hot Bunches, Ren and the rock chick girls started making their cameos. That is when I really lost it.

If you are a fan of Kristen Ashley, I am sure you are familiar with her Dream Man series and her Rock Chick series. Well, what happens when you mix these two worlds in a novella? You get Quiet Man. Ever since KA announced this short story, I wanted to get my hands on it so badly and now I can say I enjoyed every second of reading this piece of writing.

For the love of God, KA needs to write another 1000 books in the Dream Man/ Rock Chick Series. I can never get enough of it.

This book was the perfect taste of what I’ve been missing!!! I was so shocked how much I enjoyed Lottie’s story. I honestly didn’t think I would, BUT hands down LOVED it. Mo and Lottie were everything! They made my heart so happy.

I still love her old books and bought 56 Kindle books she wrote. I have several on paper too.
I went against my better judgment and ended up buying the book, even though I didn't like the author's latest books very much. But hope is the last to die and I ended up buying. I regretted it. I spent my money for nothing. I found it very boring and will try again at another time.

Kristen Ashley's 1001 Dark Nights novella, Quiet Man, is a delicious little union of the Rock Chicks and the Dream Men. Mo is one of Hawk Delgado's commandos. Lottie Mac is Jet McAllister Chavez's little sister and a stripper at Smithie's. If none of that description made sense to you PICK UP THIS BOOK AND JOIN US because you need some KA in your life.

3.5 stars. I enjoyed Lottie and Mo's story even if it felt kinda like a rehash of some of KA's other books. The mystery/suspense part of this book came up short for me because it was resolved too quickly and with little fanfare. It just felt like a way to get Lottie and Mo together otherwise they would have never met. This novella does have me looking forward to the new Dream series, though. The other commandos sound interesting and I want to meet more of Smithie's girls/strippers.
Kristen Ashley is one of the long time leading authors in contemporary romance, and readers can rely on her newest novella to bring all the feels.

Surrounded by friends and family who are happily settled, Lottie MaAlister has decided she wants the same thing. Have a baby that is. Even if she doesn’t have a man to do it with. Before she can proceed with her baby making plans she must first resolve her stalker problems. When Lottie meets the big, strong and reticent man who’s been assigned as her

I used to love KA with my whole heart...there are books of hers I can read over and over again (I still cry every time I read At Peace) but the best thing I can say about this book is “at least I was able to finish it”. Her last few books I haven’t even been able to accomplish that. Mo is fine but he doesn’t have any real stand out moments. I don’t remember Lottie from previous books...I didn’t even remember Jet having a sister. I didn’t care she was a stripper but she sure seemed to...she sp

This is a sweet story.

For those who have been fans of the Rock Chick series, this is a much awaited book about Lottie, Jet's sister who we met in book 2 of the series.

We know she was a stripper and she was very good at it, velvet rope.
Mo was mentioned briefly as one of Hawk's men in a previous book but we didn't really know much about him, think it may have been the Choas book, Free.

Lottie is a goal-oriented woman, she knows what she wants and is not willing to settle for anything less. A headliner on her own Lottie has caught the attention she never wanted, and is now shaken to her core. Willing to listen to her boss, Lottie may be able to capture everything she’s ever wanted.

Mo, definitely a quiet, strong type. He speaks when he needs to and gets quickly to the point. Taking on his latest security detail had him thinking things he never would have even entertain

Quiet Man: A Dream Man Novella by Kristen Ashley
Rock Chick/Dream Man Crossover Novella
4.25 Stars

Kristen Ashley mixing the Dream Man Series with the Rock Chick Series is my idea of heaven. I was so nervous because 1001 Dark Nights tend to be shorter novellas and Kristen Ashley usually writes them super long, but I needn’t have worried, this would have been a full-length novel from most authors, and I didn’t feel that there was anything missing.

If you are a true KA fan like me, then a book melding the Dream Man and Rock Chick worlds, is a guaranteed 1-click.

This is Charlotte "Lottie" McAlister's book, aka Jet's sister of Rock Chick Rescue notoriety. Lottie has gained quite a fan base, working as the lead stripper at Smithie's club. Not all of those people have good intentions. And that's the basis of this installment, as Smithie decides one "fan" letter to Lottie crosses the line of what may be sane and decides to hire her protection.

Quiet Man is Kristen Ashley at her best! Lottie and Mo's story is a wild ride from start to finish and its filled with humor, steamy scenes, and a loot of tension. It's the perfect set up for KA's new Dream series while at the same time gives us a glimpse into the lives of familiar and beloved characters.

Lottie is such a funny character and her POV is a delight to read, especially when in contrast to Mo's own quiet perspective. Their romance is filled with so so so much unresolved sexual tension
Own. Another anticipated book from KA with the same disappointed outcome.

The book does not feel like KA's writing of the past. I thought that maybe I'm over her writing, but after reading this book I went to read Rock Chick #2 and got sucked into the story for the 5th time so it's not that I've moved on it is that KA is not writing like she has in the past to keep my interest.

I hated the book. I hated Lottie and Mo was not the alpha male that KA usually writes about and that I enjoy reading ab

Silly premise

DNF at 60 percent: This is a shoddily constructed book whose central premise is so foolish—that a disturbing threat against a person wouldn’t be referred to the police but instead a bodyguard, that the bodyguard would never be off shift for some reason, that they would need to keep it secret so that word wouldn’t reach the police—that it was difficult to buy into anything else in this cartoonish universe.

At the point I stopped reading pretty much all of KA’s former alpha heros—all

Loved it! Classic, old school KA with, IMHO, low angst. I was stoked to discover there will be more commando books from Hawk's team.
I love these 1001 Dark Nights novellas they help you get a taste for the authors writing if you haven't read them before or if you have read them and love the authors work you get a nice additional bonus.

Quiet man is a bonus to the Dream man series, it's a standalone but has characters involved from the series and also The Rock Chick series.

Charlotte McAlister AKA “Lottie” is also the sister of Jet from the Rock Chick series and she has a stalker, Lottie is a headliner dancer in a strip club a

He got why it was a packed house.
She was graceful. She knew how to dance. She was beautiful. She had an awesome outfit on (or was taking it off).
And she was sexy AF.
