Man of My Dreams/ Keep e by Faith Andrews Blog Tour with Review



Mia Murphy may be married to the man of her dreams. But the man in her dreams is the one that got away—her high school crush.

Mia’s stuck in a rut, just like every other stay-at-home mom, and the only thing saving her from her monotonous routine is her perfect husband, Declan. He’s gorgeous, he adores her, and the man stole her heart with his sexy singing voice. Mia feels like the luckiest girl in the world, until she discovers that Mr. Perfect is not Mr. Faithful. Mia is devastated. Everything she once believed about Declan and their marriage is now covered in a big cloud of doubt and regret. On impulse, she kicks the cheating bastard out, pushing them into a separation that could mean the end of the picture-perfect couple.

But when Mia receives an invitation to her high school reunion, she finds herself abandoning the present for the oh-so alluring pull of the past. Although her heart still belongs to her husband, inescapable thoughts of her crush, Noah, resurface. And ten years later, Noah isn’t afraid to make his move. When the build-up of fantasies and ‘what ifs' comes to a head, sparks fly and it’s Mia’s turn to question if her marriage is everything she wants out of life. Searching for answers, Mia dives head first into dating Noah, falling further away from her husband and closer to her old flame.

But Declan’s not giving up so easily. Mia is his one and only and he’s not about to let another man win her heart.

I truly enjoyed Man of My Dreams. At first I was nervous about reading it because I was unsure if the main character was the one that cheated or the one that got hurt.

I am having a hard time writing this review because I don’t want to go too much into the book and give everything away.  Mia and Declan are a great couple together. They have been together since college and really do love each other. Though one lie could tear their whole family apart. After Mia discovers Declan’s lie she asks him to move out. They go on being separated and then Mia finds out that it is her 10 year reunion of high school so she decides to go in hopes that Noah will be there. Now Noah was the one that she had a crush on all through high school and most recently started to have naughty dreams about. She wanted him to notice her so bad in high school and then she ran into him in college and he had asked her out. After that encounter she doesn’t see him again and she marries Declan.

Now I liked Noah and would love to see him in another book, but Declan was still my favorite. Mia and Noah start to date and instead of having naughty dreams of Noah they turn into Declan. It’s like she can’t make up her mind. Do you want to be with Noah or Declan. Both are awesome catches. Good-looking, caring and amazing.

I had to wait to read this book until my son went to bed because I knew that I wouldn’t be able to put it down. And I was right. I needed to know who she ultimately chose and if they got their HEA. I would read anything that Faith Andrews writes if they are as good as Keep Me and Man of my Dreams. And I would definitely recommend them to my friends.

KEEP ME Synopsis:
Sexy, tatted up, underwear model Marcus Grayson is every girl’s dream—or more likely worst nightmare. He’s a player, a self-proclaimed bachelor for life, and he’s got no problem living up to his man-whore status. But when his older sister’s friend comes back from the past, he may just have the chance to turn some of his adolescent fantasies into reality. 

Tessa Bradley is a self-sufficient, take-no-bull, single mother—well, now she is. Finally rid of her abusive, alcoholic ex, she’s making a new life for herself and catching up with old friends; the ones she was forced to break ties with because of her controlling husband. When she runs into Marcus, her friend Riley’s once-adorable turned smoking-hot little brother, she has no idea how he’s about to rock her world.

I loved Marcus Grayson. Self-proclaimed man-whore, model and HOT! Unfortunately he has a thing where he likes to hook up with his older sister’s friends and usually ends up ruining their friendship. He really does have a great heart he just needed to find someone to show it to.

Tessa Bradley one of Marcus’s sister’s best friends growing up. Lost contact with his sister during her horrible marriage. Ran into Marcus one day at a coffee shop and the rest was history…..maybe not.

They had a lot of ups and downs. Tessa wondered if Marcus was ready to settle down, she was nervous about her ex-husband and the safety of her son.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved how Marcus grew into an amazing man who would do anything to protect the woman that he loved, and I loved that Tessa even though she was worried and nervous took a chance on Marcus.   

I finished this book in a day because I couldn’t put it down. First I needed to know that he really cared about Tessa, and then when they were together and ended up fighting I needed to know that they got back together. Then when the ex came back and caused so much pain and heartache I needed to know that everyone made it out ok.

I would definitely recommend this book.  Even the supporting characters were great. Riley Marcus’s sister and Beck Marcus’s best friend had a little chemistry as well and I hope that there will be a book about them in the future.

If you are looking for a sweet book with a man-whore who reforms himself that helps heal a broken woman then read this book.
