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.

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...📝

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).

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.

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.

I am a fan of a brooding, quiet Hero, Mo is just that, he doesn't talk much but I loved that Lottie see as he comm

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.

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.

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.

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.

Just as phenomenal as I thought it would be. Lottie and Mo were the perfect segway between the Rock Chicks, Hot Bunch and the Commandos. She was the glue I never knew I needed, and the icing on the cake was more Tex. Besides the effortless love story between her and Mo, Quiet Man was the ideal backdrop to be a backdoor pilot of such for Ashley's upcoming Dream series, a spin-off of her beloved Dream Man series.

The heroine Lottie is a stripper and the sister of Jet from the Rock Chick Series. She's had some threatening letters about her (not that we really get to know what they say) and so rather than involve Lee Nightingale because of the family connection or Chaos then her boss Smithie enlists the help of Hawk from the Mystery Man Series and one of his men Mo is assigned to protect Lottie. This involves actually sleeping in her bedroom (on the sofa) and he even suggests he will be in the bathroom wit ...more

Rock Chicks and Dream Men combine in this novella in the 1001 Night series.

I have wanted more Lottie since we met her in the RC books, and any man who works with Hawk Delgado is alright with me!

I have been setting Lottie up in my mind with a few of the unattached men that have popped up in the series, however none could ever be the man that Mo is to Lottie.

They say it is the quiet ones you need to watch out for - well, watch him Lottie did. It was fun watching Mo

4.5 stars but I’m giving this 5 stars simply because it’s the first KA book in SO long to make me excited the whole way through. Maybe it’s the nostalgia of the rock chick series and I didn’t hate myself by half way in. I’d call that a win. Because Rush’s book anyone? anyway THIS is exactly the KA I once loved reading. THIS is where she excels to me. It’s fun, it’s sexy, it’s lighthearted but action is still brewing, you know things are happening. Our story and our characters jump to life off th ...more

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’m glad you now know what you deserve, honey. And I hope I always give you that.” “I don’t hope it, I know you will,”

I am living for this novella! Merging two of Kristen Ashley’s most beloved series, Quiet Man brings together the delicious commando, Mo from the Dream Man series and one of my all time favorite ladies, Lottie from the Rock Chick series. As always with Kristen Ashley’s writing the beauty is just overflowing in this. Her words more than once moving me to tears, the suspense adding that something extra to keep my heart racing and the romance completely sweeping me off my feet.

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.

I liked this book and the H & h. It was nice to see some of our not so prominent side characters get their hea. It’s definitely not as dramatic or detailed as it’s predecessors which made a novella length best or it would have dragged. I hope all the books in this possible series are that length too.

I love my villains. This one had a terrific set up. Not delving in to that was a missed opportunity imo.

Sweet, easy read, fluff, insta love, couple centric love story. 3.5 Stars

“She was on the stage, busting out a performance to Shakira’s “Loca”, and making Mo, for the first time since he started with Hawk, wish he had another job.
Honest to fuck, if he managed to get through the whole night, and all three of her feature sets (this was number two), without jumping off the stage and punching every motherfucker watching her in the throat, it’d be a miracle.
He got why she was a headliner.
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.
