Dreams Really Do Come True
Lottie believes that time is running out.
She's got no man. She's got no kids. She's not getting any younger.
She wants more.
But a stalker throws a spanner in the works.
Can't have a future if you're not alive. Right?
So she gets a bodyguard.
Mo is everything she could ever want in a man.

There was so much to love about this story! Quiet Man gave me instalove at its finest! I adored the development of the relationship between Lottie and Mo. I loved how they were together without being together, right from the start. There was no denying that they belonged to each other. I loved how they didn't always agree with one another and yet found ways to make their relationship work. I loved the bonds they shared with their circle of people and how all of those people blended to make a gigantic circle of family.

I'd like to point out that Mo had a good and strong point. Lottie's a stripper. There aren't many men out there envisioning their forever woman showing the goods to complete strangers on a regular basis. I'm not knocking the career choice. I've got friends who are or have been strippers. But is that ALL you want to do? What happens when you have children? Are you still going to be a headlining stripper? Lottie was right in that there's a double standard, but men and women ARE different. It's a fact. Therefore you can't color each gender with the same brush. She's a stripper not because she has to be but because she wants to be. Kudos! You like the attention. But to say you're not encouraging men to fantasize or degrade??? It's all about supply and demand and I'm sorry, but strippers aren't solving world hunger or fighting for world peace.

Anyhoo... I laughed. A lot. And I swooned during many of Mo's chapters. He and Lottie were simply awesome characters that I felt lucky to read about. I also enjoyed getting to meet so many side characters and I'm excited to read their books. Fans of KA will get a chance to visit with the Rock Chicks and the Hot Bunch and meet a ton of other hot guys to fall in love with. While I wanted the suspenseful part of the story to carry through to much farther than it did, I still enjoyed everything I got. I will always be a fan of these grunting and growling alphas and their sassy ladies!

Book Synopsis
Quiet ManCharlotte “Lottie” McAlister is in the zone. She’s ready to take on the next chapter of her life, and since she doesn’t have a man, she’ll do what she’s done all along. She’ll take care of business on her own. Even if that business means starting a family.

The problem is, Lottie has a stalker. The really bad kind. The kind that means she needs a bodyguard.

Enter Mo Morrison.

Enormous. Scary.

Quiet.

Mo doesn’t say much, and Lottie’s used to getting attention. And she wants Mo’s attention. Badly.

But Mo has a strict rule. If he’s guarding your body, that’s all he’s doing with it.

However, the longer Mo has to keep Lottie safe, the faster he falls for the beautiful blonde who has it so together, she might even be able to tackle the demons he’s got in his head that just won’t die.

But in the end, Lottie and Mo don’t only have to find some way to keep hands off until the threat is over, they have to negotiate the overprotective Hot Bunch, Lottie’s crazy stepdad, Tex, Mo’s crew of frat-boy commandos, not to mention his nutty sisters.

All before Lottie finally gets her Dream Man.

And Mo can lay claim to his Dream Girl.
