First Thought when Finished: After my crack reading (all in 2 months) of Rock Chicks, Mystery Men, and Chaos –I can hands down say Ride Steady by Kristen Ashley was the most emotionally gut wrenching, heart swelling, couple enduring book of the bunch!

What is Cracktastic Reading? For me, it is when I basically baseline a series as soon as I can get my hands on the books. It is also when I get to a stopping point and go “holy hell did I just fall back to the 80s/90s with the super Alpha Men and the head/desk leading lady” (my head to the desk but OH MY GOD)!

I haven’t had a truly Cracktastic Reading experience since before I started blogging in 2008 but Dream Men & Chaos by Kristen Ashley certainly filled the bill! I want to state this upfront since when I start talking about particular characters you will get the impression I did not like the series: I COULD NOT PUT THESE DOWN! That is because Kristen Ashley tells a story like a BOSS! Seriously, I NEEDED to know individual’s love stories and the action was fantastic. Plus the men were unapologetically alpha male (though yes there will be some issues with them too) AND they were FIERCE. Simply put, any time you can’t put a book down whether it is because of a train wreck character or a storyline you must know how it ends then the writer did their job. Kristen Ashley did her JOB!

Part of my 25 Books for the Holidays for 2012

How Simply Irresistible put me in the Holiday Spirit: I love stories about sisters and them coming together for the Holidays! Also I love books that spread the Mistletoe liberally and Simply Irresistible did just that πŸ™‚
