Stuck in a colorless world, Tyra Masters decides to chuck her old life and starts searching for something. She doesn’t know what it is until she meets her dream man. The goateed, tattooed, muscled, gravelly voiced motorcycle man who plies her with tequila and gives her the best sex of her life. But she knows it isn’t the tequila and sex talking. He’s it. He’s who she’s been daydreaming about since she could remember.

Until he makes it clear she isn’t who he’s looking for.

Tyra slinks away from his bed, humiliated. The problem is, he’s her new boss. She just may or may not have forgotten to tell him that part.

Kane “Tack” Allen has a rule. He doesn’t employ someone he’s slept with. And he lets Tyra know that in his motorcycle man way. Tyra fights for her job and wins it using sass and a technicality. Tack challenges her that if she hits his bed one more time, she loses her job.

Tyra is determined to keep her job and keep away from Tack. But she makes a big mistake. During their head-to-heads, she lets it all hang out and shows Tack she is who he’s looking for. And Tack has had a good woman slip through his fingers, he’s not about to let that happen again.

Although Tack colors Tyra’s world with a vibrancy that’s blinding, being with him means she has to live in his Motorcycle Club world. Full on, no holds barred. And since Tack’s world, not to mention Tack, is a little scary, Tyra isn’t so sure.

It's Tack's job to convince her.

My review:

Motorcycle Man by Kristen Ashley is exactly how I like my books: grabbing, well-written, funny, exciting with lovable and hot characters who have decent compelling stories! This book is an epitome of why I love to read! It had it all, it was a pure pleasure to read:


Motorcycle Man is the fourth and last book in The Dream Man series. It tells the story of Tyra and Tack. Tyra gets an office job at Ride Custom Cars and Bikes which is owned by Chaos Motorcycle Club. When she shows up to her first working day, she meets with her new boss... who is the man she was in bed and had a lot of hot sex with and who basically kicked her out of the bed after that. Kane "Tack" Allen is equally surprised seeing her there, telling her, that he doesn't work with woman he has shared bed with. He makes that crystal clear.

Tyra needs the job desperately and throws a feisty fit, which surprises Tack. Tyra refuses to leave and Tack is not making her staying easy. Tyra promises that she will never ever have sex with him and that he does not even have to worry about it.

Well, never say never.

What I loved:

There are so many things I loved about the book, that I don't even know where to start from.
Writing was beautiful! There were a lot of text usable for wonderful quotes in this book! The writing style was amazing.

It was funny, I laughed a lot while reading. The author seems to have a great sense of humor

The subplots were fascinating - Tyra getting to know Tack's kids and past, Tyra's past, Lanie's and Elliott's story, Chaos MC. There was a lot woven into this book which made this book a page turner. I was up until 4 AM to finish it, because I did not WANT to put this book away, and I know I will re-read this book more than once. It was simply that good.

The romance was filled with chemistry, but it wasn't flawless - it seemed real, because in real life people do fight, they have ups and downs and so did . The romance was also hot, sizzling hot. It was also one of the most beautiful romances I have read. I think the chemistry between the characters was what made it believable and down to earth.

The dialogue was excellent. While reading I was thinking, that the author is mastering the art. I also remember thinking: Do men really talk like that? So sweet and beautiful? Of course, the fact I haven't met any man who speaks like Tack did, does not mean they don't exist. But the words used in the dialogue made me think how beautiful a language can be. Even the ugly words fit in.

Epilogue of the book was breathtaking! It seems that Kristen Ashley is a master of writing epilogues! I loved the epilogue of Law Man and the epilogue of Motorcycle man was simply hair-raisingly beautiful. It made me cry.

Characters! The word "like" is not enough to describe how much I loved the character. Heck, even the word "love" doesn't suffice. What I enjoyed mostly was that they weren't perfect or flawless, they were just so incredibly real.


I loved Tyra! She was feisty and independent and brave. They way she took in Tack, his kids, being a biker babe and the whole freaking Chaos MC was adorable! I loved the sassyness and that stood her ground, but also gave in when she realized she made a mistake or was wrong about something.  I wanted to clap my hands when I read the scene where she furiously was bitch slapping a guy who hurt Tabby (Tack's daughter) or when she fought Naomi after Naomi called her the c-word. Awesome lady!

Tack went very quickly to my top favorite male leads. I was intrigued by him in the previous book in the series and was happy that he got a whole book! The kindness and sweetness he gave to his friend's wife Mara in Law Man was great, but the love and action he gave to Tyra, was fabulous!

Tack was hot, good looking, tough, bad ass biker and owner of Ride Custom Cars and Bikes and the president of the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Besides the toughness, he is also deeply sweet and odes anything to protect his old lady and kids. That is beautiful. A man who makes you safe and allows you to be who you are and who you want to be. Loved him.

I adored Tack's children Tabby and Rush. I have already read Taby's book and I can't wait to read Rush's book.

There were many other characters in the book worth mentioning, but the list would simply be too long to place in the review. Let's just say, that the whole biker bunch in Chaos is interesting!


"Truth, Honesty, perseverance, strength, love of all kinds and forgiveness are all beautiful,Tack. The most beautiful stories ever tõld are the most difficult to täke." - Tyra to Tack

”Life’s a roller coaster. Best damn ride in the park. You don’t close your eyes, hold on and wait for it to be over, babe. You keep your eyes open, lift your hands straight up in the air and enjoy the ride for as long as it lasts.” - Tack to Tyra

”The ride is not over but if I can keep my Club together and find a sweet, feisty woman who’s got my back and enough to her that she’ll stay there, holding me up not dragging me down, I figure I’d find my way to beauty eventually. And I’d find absolution because I’d know, I earned the love of that woman, a woman who’s got so much to her it’ll take years to dig down and find the heart of her, that would be my reward.” - Tack to Tyra

“The perfect I was looking for wasn’t perfection. The perfect I was looking for was the one. And he was you.” - Tyra to Tack

“I like everything about you, honey. Lived in black and white seems like all my life. Never noticed. Not until you colored my world.” - Tyra to Tack

“Every day somethin' new. Will I ever get to the heart of you?”
“I’m not your absolution, honey. You earned it before you met me.”

“You’re my reward.”

- Dialogue between Tyra and Tack


I rest my case.


I rest my case. It was an excellently written book with characters that melt your heart. Simple as that!

5 Flowers!

5 stars.

Happy reading!
