***Promo Post and Review*** Man of My Dreams by Faith Andrews

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.

Jenn's Review
Mia is happily married to Declan. They’ve been together for several years but unfortunately, with Declan’s work and travel and Mia being at home with two kids, they’ve both let things slide. Marriages can suffer when there is no intimacy. So, maybe that’s why Mia has been having sex dreams about her high school crush!
Mia wanted Noah the moment she saw him in her class in high school. He made her tongue tied and she was to shy and afraid to make her feelings known. Such is life… And none of that matters anymore. Mia is happy and in love. Declan is coming home soon from his business trip and she couldn’t be more excited. So, when he calls to say he has to stay another night for work, she is very disappointed. So what happens when Mia finds out that everyone else came home as planned…well that’s when the sh!t hit the fan.
Now, let me tell you why I wanted to read this book. For some crazy reason, when the husband cheats, I can read it fine. I like to see the wife get revenge or something. But when the wife cheats in a book and I make myself sick with anxiety. This time, I wanted to see what happens with “the one that got away.”
What Declan did to Mia made her question everything. Her marriage, herself and everything they had built together. Well, since he got his time, she decided she wanted her time. My heart broke for both of them. Even Noah! I really wanted to give him a hug…and an icepack.
I really enjoyed this story. It’s pretty spot on with my age and all the pop culture that’s mentioned throughout the book was awesome! Even though some of those parts made me laugh out loud, it certainly took me back to those days.  I must say that one of my favorite parts of the book was at her high school reunion, Noah is walking through the doors and Sex and Candy by Marcy Playground is going through her mind.  Ahhhh…
I give Man of My Dreams 4.5 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
