Mystery Man am Kindle This will be yet another review where I will show off my fine skills of prioritizing. Forget the hero, the heroine, or the story. We have other stuff to take care of first.Character description taken from the book itself :I didn't expect to see tall, broad, inked-to-the-max, long blond-haired Dog standing at the other side of the counter.HOLD THE PHONE. No one bothered to tell me that Dog the Bounty Hunter was making an appearance in this book.Then...just when I thought it couldn't get any more surreal, I saw this :her sister, Ginger KiddWait a sec...is there really a character named ginger kid?Disclaimer : I adore red haired children. Parents of red-haired children, please do not send hate mail because I posted a picture asking for help for ginger kids. I was only pointing out that this is a term not often used for flattery and probably not the best name for a book character.Aw, hell. Let's just kick this review off with the characters.Hawk - a.k.a. - The eighties called and they want their Camaro back. He's a hot man. I'm not gonna lie. The hair, the skin, the dimples, the boots, the multi-national heritage. He's like a taller version of the guy who plays Ranger in the Stephanie Plum movie. Who am I to complain, really? Other than a weird fondness for mid-life crisis muscle cars, he's my kinda man. I don't appreciate that he put cameras in Gwen's house to spy on her (Really?!? You couldn't have monitored her from outside of the house?) but hey. He gives great sex and he's pretty to look at. Sometimes that's about as good as it's going to get.Gwen - a.k.a. - Shallow, ditsy, fluffy girl. How the hell did this woman manage to get three hot guys willing to wage war over her? I could not stand this chick. After reading a book as long as this one was (and it was looooong), all I knew about her was that she drank cosmos, ate copious amounts of cookie dough, liked expensive shoes, and collected little black dresses. FFS, I would not want to hang out with this woman in real life. She had the depth of a potato chip. Although, I guess I can say that her big hair probably worked well with Hawk's camaro. At least they had a retro theme going on.Since I've already figured out that nothing major changes about the men in these books other than how they look and what their jobs are, I'm hoping that the future will bring greater variety in the female lead department. I want to see big personalities, not Sex and the City wannabees.The Story itself was...Up and down. The first 15% was a lot of rambling about pop culture and side characters who weren't really in the story. Then things took off for a while and I was interested. Then we hit a downswing again when a couple of turf war issues repeated themselves. Then we hit an upswing, then a downswing, rinse and repeat. Gwen and Hawk were never really a believable couple to me until after they got back together for the last time and then it got good. The last couple of chapters and the epilogue were excellent. It's too bad that it took almost an entire book before I got excited about what was going on.What interested me the most were the side characters. I'm looking forward to both Mitch and Tack's books. I have the feeling that I might like those books better, so fear not KA groupie girls. All is probably not lost.The terminology was...Eh. I think I'm used to it by now. I get that KA apparently loves nickname usage, which is something I loathe when it's used excessively in books. But I think I know that it's just part of the package and you have to deal with it if you're going to read and enjoy these books.The squishy belly thing was just odd though. Gwen's belly got squishy a lot. I don't know if she was turned on or having indigestion.Every male character sounded the same. I've noticed this in other books of this author's as well. The sentence phrasing is very stilted. I get that it's conversational, so I'm not knocking that, but it's highly unlikely that every single guy you ever come in contact with is going to talk in the same exact style. Especially when you have a commando, a police guy (or whatever Mitch was, don't remember) and a biker all speaking the same way. Last I checked, there is no universal guy phrasing.Example : "I was another type of man, the type they are, I wouldn't hesitate gettin' in there and muddling your head by making my play."However, there's always a silver lining...As stated earlier, the last part of the book was pretty flipping incredible. The epilogue = outstanding. It's a first book to a series. Sure, there were some flaws, but I think there's room for growth. The book entertained me well enough to keep going, and often that's good enough. I have the feeling that my feelings about the series will grow fonder as I continue on with the rest of the stories.. Night time is the right timeGwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams He s hot, he s sexy, and what started as a no names exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half long pleasure fest Sure, it s a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he s the one, she just can t turn him away Hawk Delgado knows abNight time is the right timeGwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams He s hot, he s sexy, and what started as a no names exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half long pleasure fest Sure, it s a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he s the one, she just can t turn him away Hawk Delgado knows about Gwen than she could ever imagine She s gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone Yet when Gwen is drawn into Denver s lethal underground scene, Hawk s protective nature comes out full force The problem is, when Gwen gets a dose of Hawk s Alpha attitude in the daylight, she s not so sure he s the one any.. Popular Books Mystery Man -1.000 StarsWhen I decided to read this book I thought I was in for something, at the very least, interesting if not mind-blowing, since most of my friends seemed to love it. What I got was a messed up relationship, a shallow(and idiotic) heroine and a hero who... a hero... um, I really don't know what to say about the hero.Reasons why the heroine was an impecile who should have died long ago:1) She was having sex with a guy whose name she didn't even know. Not once or twice, but every week for 1,5 year!2) Said sex was unprotected even though she suspected the guy had a parade of other lovers.3) Her sister is in a ton of trouble which will lead at best in jail, at worst in death. Someone broke into her house. Someone set her father's house on fire. Yet all our brilliant heroine thinks about is dresses, shoes, guys.4) The aforementioned guy knew everything about her even though she knew nothing. He had installed cameras at her house(without asking permission or informing her), he had her followed and he is determined she belongs to him, despite her protests.All that even though he thought of her as a slut who all but dropped her panties to get his attention the first night, and then had sex with him without knowing who he was for 1.5 FUCKING YEAR!Despite these facts she is seriously considering a relationship with him because he installed her a security system(without asking btw), got her a pair of "dreamy" shoes and carried her out of a fire(and I know it sounds all heroic and shit but she could have easily walked out on her own).I guess let's forget his creapiness an his domineering ways since he got her shoes!About the hero...I seriously can't tell you anything about him because at the 40% mark, the heroine doesn't know anything except that he is hot, he has 3 brothers and he used to be in the army(all of which she learned in the last two days, not the 1.5 year they'd been lovers).I love a possessive, hot, Alpha male as much as the next girl but all this girl has seen of the hero so far is stalker-creepy, not sexy.Btw did I mention that this TSTL girl with the fish IQ, this serial killer's victim waiting to happen, this godawful STD's best friend, has 4 hot guys pining for her? And as if she wasn't pathetic already, she also pants after them like some desperate 40 year old virgin. Seriously!And the writing... Don't even get me started about the writing,After I read about 40% of the book I got a little afraid that idiocy is contagious and decided to drop it as a precaution.PS. Did I mention that this guy had been breaking into her house all this time? She hadn't given him keys or anything like that.
