Giveaway & Review: Man Of My Dreams by Faith Andrews
MAN OF MY DREAMS Synopsis:
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.

What I thought about Man of My Dreams
What would you do if your husband just admitted staying away on a business trip to fool around with some woman he met in a bar... and your high school crush, that one guy that you always wanted suddenly became available and interested in you?
That's Mia. She's got some choices to make. They both married young. Maybe it was a mistake. Or maybe it was over.
Mia, her husband Declan, and too-good-to-be-true Noah's life is told in a series of alternating flashback chapters and what is happening now. Some of the flashback chapters worked for me, but mostly I liked the current chapters. I wanted to know what Mia was going to do. Would she forgive her husband, or take up with that high school guy she always wanted? I thought the book captured well the feelings of betrayal in infidelity and all the other doubts and fears that went along with it.
Man of My Dreams was a quick read for me. I did want to keep turning the page to find out what would happen. It was a good depiction of a pivotal moment in a marriage, although I did think that things wrapped up very quickly at the end.

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.
