“I have it on good authority me being a dork is cute”
Dream Maker by Kristen Ashley is what I have been WAITING for! I fell in love with Kristen Ashley’s books years ago when I was exploring my newfound love of the Romance genre. The Rock Chicks series holds a close place in my heart because they showed my then naive self that romance doesn’t have to be about a damsel needing rescuing, sometimes the damsel DOES the reducing! (Maybe after getting kidnapped a couple times, but you know what I mean). I think all of her fans were heartbroken when the series came to an end and were frothing at the mouth waiting for whatever spin-off she would bless us with. Luckily Kristen Ashley is amazing at incorporating characters from past books in her new creations so we knew whatever we would get, we would see our old friends again.
That brings us to the reason you are here… Dream Maker! This begins the next generation of badass ladies who despite many obstacles are able to kick butt and take names. This story has the same winning formula that made her previous series a success to include a feisty heroine, an ultra Alpha hero, a girl-gang not to be messed with and all the crazy hijinx KA stories are known for!
Our heroine Evie is what some would call a… nerd. She’s beauty and she’s brains and to finance her education she takes a job dancing at the infamous Smithies. Her co-worker Lottie has the brilliant idea to match up all her girls with her boyfriend’s commando teammates. Mag is the lucky man handpicked for Evie and after an awkward first date that turns into a recon mission it is obvious that they have an undeniable connection. Mag is over-protective, Evie just wants what’s best for her family and together they are a force to be reckoned with. Their chemistry is the same combustible energy you’re used to seeing with KA couples with just enough angst to keep them humble.
If you’re new to Kristen Ashley’s books you wont get to experience the same excitement as the KA veterans with all of the cameos from past characters but this is a great introduction to get you ready to devour her past series.
If you like some Sass paired with your Alpha this is just what you need! Just be prepared to fall down the Kristen Ashley worm hole, cause once you start it’s impossible to stop! 5 well deserved Stars!
