Leslie Stone stumbles upon her fiancé cheating with the maid of honor just days before her wedding. Determined to put distance between them, she heads to the family’s cabin in Sleeping Falls, Michigan. Unfortunately, her car barely hit the city limits before breaking down. And with no money for repairs, the scrolling marquee above the biker bar advertising a mechanical bull riding contest seems like a perfect solution.
Jay Westfield learned at an early age to avoid women who chase the limelight. After all, his mother had been the star attraction in Harvey’s Traveling show. The minute Leslie clears the door in cut-offs and skimpy tank top, things heat up. She’s on a mission and he wants no part of it. The last thing he expects is the attraction he feels seeing her on the back of Old Iron. Add in a squeezy rag doll named Mr. Jingles, the colorful antics of newfound friend, and the renowned tarot-card reader Madame Luella. Leslie’s about to discover in order to find the man of her dreams she must be willing to believe in magic.
Man of Her Dreams
-by Teresa Blue
A Crimson Romance Book
This is a story about Leslie, a head strong young woman set to marry the man, not so much of her dreams, and finding herself justly relived when she finds her fiancé in bed with her best friend.
After deciding on a little retreat to find herself she quickly bumps in Jay, the local handyman, who is not only hot s hell but has a captivating personality to match. Their paths soon become a little more than entwined and a heated romance blossoms.
To be fair, the story is well written and quite original in places, and I did enjoy reading it. Unfortunately, for me, I found it lacked a little back bone. Where some parts of the story had the opportunity to grip the reader, it seemed to fizzle out towards the end of the chapter leaving me feeling a little frustrated and wanting the author to explore her story more.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Mills and Boon type stories as it is of a very similar nature.
I’ve always had my nose buried in a book and remember the day I was awarded my first library card. I went faithfully on Saturdays checking out my limit. And for awhile reading was enough, until the day it wasn’t. For whatever reason, I picked up a pen and just wrote. And I’ve been at it ever since.
May 2012 saw my first publication of a novella, Night Bird by The Wild Rose Press under the pen name Teresa Blue.
