Man of My Dreams by Faith Andrews: Review

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.

Leary says…

Relatable. That is how I completely feel about Man of My Dreams. I can totally relate to this book and I’m pretty sure there are many others out there that can as well. I have been with my boyfriend for 8 years..since our senior year in High School. I can totally relate to all the thoughts that Mia is having, all the wondering if she is really ready? Is he really the one? Do I want to date more first?…and then to the thoughts that I hope I never come across..where did I go wrong? Why did this happen? Am I happy? Can we come back from this? Do I want to come back from this?
In high school Mia had an INSANE crush on Noah, he was the star baseball player, had sexy sandy blonde hair, smelled amazing, and called her beautiful. But she just couldn’t completely capture his attention. After Mia’s last ditched effort in catching Noah’s eye she goes off to college and meets Declan. Oh boy…Declan. Words can’t even describe how much I love him and his love for Mia but also how much I despise him and what he has put Mia through. Maybe it was part reflecting in my hatred but I really do believe it was deserved.
After Declan completely puts Mia through the ringer she has a chance to reunite with her long lost crush, Noah, at their 10 year HS reunion. 10 years has definitely done Noah some good..not that he really needed it!
As Mia struggles with trying to decide if she wants to fix her marriage and trust Declan again or if she wants to test the waters with Noah the men have both realized what they have within their grasp and will do anything to win her heart.
Who is really the Man of Mia’s Dreams?!
I absolutely loved the story because it was so unbelievably relatable and I completely enjoyed Faith’s writing style. What was so amazing with this story is that we get so many flash backs to Mia’s insane teenage crush on Noah and her interactions with him. Funny how the teenage female brain works (well really..any age female brain)! We also get to experience significant moments in Mia and Declan’s relationship. I really enjoyed every single moment of this book…yes…even the moments I wanted to punch Declan in the face.
P.S. Mia has an AMAZING best friend that was hilarious but extremely supportive and only wanted what was best for Mia (even to the point of sabotaging Mia because she know what Mia really wants).
