Man of My Dreams by Faith Andrews ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway


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.


My face is pressed up against a pillow, strands of long golden hair splayed out across the

smooth, silken sheets. His hands reach underneath me to grope my breasts, his fingers bringing

my nipples to beaded peaks.

“Please, baby. I can’t wait any longer,” I beg.

His tight erection skims the cheeks of my ass and then, with one quick tilt on my behalf,

the long hardness nestles between my silky moist folds. My body instinctively opens for him,

allowing his entrance and I moan with gratitude as he guides his way inside.

I clutch fistfuls of sateen sheets, stifling moans with the pillow. I know I need to be quiet, so

I whisper his name. “Noah…it’s so good, baby.”

Unexpectedly, the sensation is gone and I lift my head to look over my shoulder, bewildered,

before I let out a satisfying gasp. His mouth has taken over and the wetness of his tongue on

my equally wet flesh is pure ecstasy. His slick movements are erratic, alternating between

sweet, gentle suction and rampant, greedy licking. His expert-like ministrations cause an earth-
shattering ripple to shudder throughout my body. I revert back to grabbing the sheets as the

intense tremors build even more, coiling deep within.

His tongue teases and then stiffens, breaching into me, unraveling the last of me. I pant into

the pillow, replete, satisfied, on cloud nine and then I hear the laughter.

“Good morning, babe.”

It takes a second to register that the voice coming from between my legs isn’t Noah’s, but my

husband’s. Oh my God, not again. Thank God, I never screamed out his name.

Or did I?

“Declan, what the hell are you doing?” I spin around, landing on my back and pull the covers

over me.

“Giving you the wake-up call you deserve,” he replies, licking his lips.

“Are you nuts? What time is it? The girls could have….”

“Don’t worry about the girls. They’re both still sound asleep. Me on the other hand, I’m wide

awake.” He wiggles his eyebrows up and down and points to the massive erection that’s created

a tent in his flannel pajama bottoms.

I pull him up to me and he collapses on his pillow, next to mine. “I can’t believe you did that

while I was still sleeping. What the hell gave you that –wait, have you been snooping through

my romance novels again?”

Declan can’t contain his laughter. I slap a hand across his mouth, shushing him. “Shh! Let

them sleep.” I nibble his ear, inching my hand into his PJs. “You started it, now let me finish it.”


5 ***** STARS
You know why I LOVED this book?  It was true to life in every aspect and add lots of funny moments, emotional ups and downs and some really sexy moments.  I read the synopsis but that did no justice for this crazy screwed up love story.The author provides of with a POV view from Mia and Declan and we get to revisit their past. 

"If I ever have a daughter, I will be sure she knows that no guy, no matter how hot, is worth making her second guess herself, making her consume her day around his every move."

How many times can you remember drooling and having the HOTS for some good looking guy in high school? Daydreaming, wishing he was as attracted to you?  Oh, I remember too many times.  Watching him from afar, wanting and wishing for him to talk to you, notice you.  Well this is what Mia did for too many years googling after Noah!  But Noah never showed any kind of interest other than cordial hellos and goodbyes.  So, finally during college Mia comes across Declan who she immediately becomes attracted to.  He does all the right things from the moment he introduced himself.  He became the won her over immediately.....they dated for years and then married and soon after had their first child and child two soon after.  Reality sets in with Mia.....

"And there it is........hello reality.  Little girls, ass wiping and breakfast at.....six forty five!"

Mia knows she has a good life, man of her dreams, two beautiful daughters and with no worries, but...........

"I'm in love.  I have a great life.  Okay, fine, I'm semi-happy, with semi-eventful life."

So according to Mia, her life is just ordinary... 

"The monotony of reality will suck the glamour right of any desperate housewife's life."

Declan works long hours, travels, and this leaves her life to being mommy with no breaks and no together time with Declan.  While these feelings are consuming her, she soon finds that her 'MR. PERFECT' was not 'MR. FAITHFUL'! 

'"Declan.  He was the man who held the key to my heart and unlike him, I was content with who I'd chosen to spend my life with and how that life had turned out."  

Everything she thought was right has totally gone wrong!  So Mia ask Declan for a separation....she believes they both need time and space.  During this time, Noah comes back into the picture at their 10 year high school reunion.  Sparks fly immediately, and Mia questions herself and the old feelings that have resurfaced for Noah. After all these years, Mia confesses her bottled up feelings to Noah.  And Noah decides this time he is going act on those feelings.  But what neither Mia nor Noah knew was that Declan was not ready to give up.  He knew he had made a mistake and was willing to do whatever to get the love of his life back.  But will it be too late for Declan?  

Kudos to Faith Andrews!  This book was so well written and absolutely BRILLIANT!!
