Man of My Dreams by Faith Andrews

Cover done by: Mae I Design

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.


Review

I, 100% loved this story.  I usually find myself rooting for one character over another in a love triangle, but with these characters, I was torn between Declan and Noah.  I wanted Mia and Declan to work out their issues because too often people give up.  Broken homes and broken marriages are so common these days and staying together isn’t something a lot of couples do.  I think Mia and Declan got stuck in a rut; living their lives and going along with their routines.  Somewhere along the way, they forgot to keep the passion alive.  Routine is the norm; go to work, pay the bills, clean the house, take care of the kids, go to bed, wake up and do it all over again.

“Life gets in the way of love sometimes”

Mia attended her high school reunion where she’s reunited with her high school crush, Noah.  I loved Noah; he was so sweet and good to Mia.  He took her on dates and treated her like a woman wants to be treated, especially when she’s been so hurt by a cheating husband.  Even though Declan wasn’t faithful, a part of me still missed him.  I didn’t completely blame Declan, they both did things that contributed to their problems.

Honestly, this made me look at my marriage and the things that I can do differently to avoid getting stuck in a rut.  The following passage really hit home with me.  I get mad over the small things too often and I need to step back and see what’s really important.

“I know life changes a person, but is it a fucking crime to miss the woman I fell in love with? The old Mia— the woman who used to look at me like I was her knight in shining armor. Now, there are days I see daggers in her big brown eyes. A pair of rolled up socks left on the side of the bed might trigger fucking World War Three. And God forbid I come home a little tired from a long day at work. I can hear her now, “You’re tired? Try dealing with these two beasts in disguise all day!” I know it’s not easy. Being a stay at home mother is a full time job, but being my wife, my best friend, should still be one of her priorities. And right now, I’m not feeling much like a priority, considering we haven’t spoken since yesterday afternoon.’’

This story was refreshing.  It featured real-life characters in real-life situations and was completely relatable.  If you’re looking for a book packed full of emotion, this would be your book.  One-click it.. Now!
