Saturday Series: Motorcycle Man (Dream Man #4) by Kristen Ashley

"Get ready to ride."

Tyra Masters has had enough drama to last a lifetime. Now she's back on track and looking forward to her new, quiet life until she meets the man of her dreams. The tattooed, muscled biker plies her with tequila and the best sex of her life. She knows it isn't the tequila and hot sex talking. He's the kind of man she's always wanted. Unfortunately, he's also her new boss.

Kane Tack Allen has a rule: he doesn't employ someone he's slept with. So when he learns he spent last night in bed with his new office manager, he quickly fires Tyra. Yet when Tyra stands up to him and fights for her job, Tack is intrigued. He tells her she can keep her job on one condition: no more sex. Ever. But as things heat up between them, Tack finds that he'll be the one breaking all the rules.

While I wouldn't call it an accident sleeping with your boss, it's still not the smartest move. Though to be honest Tyra didn't know he was her boss and Tack didn't know she was his new employee. Thus the beginning of the drama, as Tack has some strict rules about this. Still Tyra needs a job, so his attitude doesn't scare her away and she gives as good as she gets. The woman isn't some meek little lady, still Tack is intimidating as hell.

Tack gives into Tyra, but her going against him only makes her more intriguing. She's a challenge he can't resist and won't back down from. While Tyra has no real clue how to handle this alpha male. Honestly I liked Tack from the previous books, but now that we get a closer look it took me a while to be convinced he's okay. The man is seriously bossy, rude, pushy, stubborn, and his moral compass isn't quite aligned with mine. It seems that these are also some issues Tyra has with him in the beginning, but Tack is a man who is used to getting his way in this case also Tyra.

I believe Tyra could have gone more against him in the beginning. It all moves so fast and he pretty much takes over her life, without her real consent. So while this may not make Tack my kind of guy, I could escape in the fantasy of him. As usual plenty of drama between the main characters, and we again have a crazy ex-wife, some cool kids and a dangerous outside threat that could ruin it all. Since Tack isn't necessarily a law-abiding citizen, he takes matters into his own hands when it comes to protecting those who he cares about.

I was happy to see that Tack got his own story and happily ever after. He's a recurring character in the previous book, and while he might be a bit shady his heart is in the right place and he is capable of doing good things. The fact that he chose Tyra was a bit surprising as she is so very different from him or the women he usually goes for. She's as clean as the come and by choosing her, Tyra inadvertently gets dragged into his trouble. Considering Tack doesn't take threats very well, he's very protective of those around him and will go through extreme lengths to keep them safe. I like that combination of romance and mystery, this always adds more dimension to a story and well you can not call these stories boring.

The Author
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She 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!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but 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 multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of 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 up, it keeps getting better.
