Blog Tour ~ Man of my Dreams by Faith Andrews

Cover done by: Mae I Design

 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.

Buy Man of My Dreams on Amazon

Man of My Dreams was so different than most books I have read. It was like reading a diary or listening to someone tell you a real life story. The things that go on in here are things so many people experience in every day life. Originally I was a little worried about going in because of the nature of the book and the thought of infidelity. It’s different when you’re married and cheat, ya know. However, I was pleased with how it was a dealt with and loved that it was so real and life like. The emotions and doubts that were addressed make you put yourself in Mia’s shoes and think, “how would I react if this happened to me?” 

Then I wanted to strangle her because she began to question it all and between the past and the present chapters I couldn’t figure out how she could ever doubt Declan. I was about to stop reading because I was so afraid how this one would end I didn’t know if I wanted to know how it turned out. And then came Declan’s POV and I saw that all these doubts and insecurities weren’t one sided and I understood so much more. 
It takes a real strong man to walk away from the temptation that he faced when he felt like his whole life was falling apart and then to step aside and give Mia the time that she needed to come to terms with her own feelings made me love him so much more. 

Did I feel bad for Noah? Nah, not so much. He had his chance and let it slip by. I was so happy with how it all ended up and would love to read more from this author. And just FYI I was TEAM DECLAN all the way through!! 

I give this novel 5 HUGE TRUE LOVE STARS!!!

What the hell is wrong with me? For the past ten years, at least once every few months, I have 

dreamt about hot, steamy, glorious sex with Noah. Where our hands roam each other’s bodies, 

leaving no flesh untouched. Where he claims me as his own and I let him wrap his arms around 

me and tell me how much he loves me. 

But I digress.

That is not my life. And it’s not that I object. I’m happy. I’m in love. I have a great life. Okay, 

fine, I’m semi-happy, with my semi-eventful life. I know I shouldn’t be so ungrateful; there are 

people out there who would give a right arm for my life, but it’s just so…ordinary. 

Grace’s text interrupts my recurring thoughts.

Hot and steamy again? Did you…?

I waste no time texting back.

Nope! Not this time :( Woken too soon!

An unexpected heat pulses through me, reminding me of what I was ripped away from. Grace 

breaks me free of that fantasy too.

Don’t worry. Declan will be home soon. LOL

She’s right. And I plan to plop the kids right off at their Nana’s so that I can jump his bones. 

Is it crazy that thinking of sex with another man makes me want to jump my husband’s bones? 

Something’s wrong with me. 

I wash my face again, needing the cold sensation. “There’s nothing wrong with you. It was just a 

dream,” I reassure my reflection, wishing I actually believed it. 

I would believe it, if it weren’t happening so damn frequently. I have no reason for these 

subliminal messages to be intruding my dreams. I haven’t even had contact with Noah 

since…See? I can’t even remember the last time. 

Besides, Declan is a good man, a hot man. Damn great…at least, it is when we actually manage 

to find time for sex. When the kids aren’t lodged in between us in our bed, or when he isn’t away 

on business. It isn’t the glamorous life he’d promised me when he proposed to me in college, but 

almost five years of marriage and two kids will do that to you. The monotony of reality will suck 

the glamour right out of any desperate housewife’s life.
