    This was fun to read, lots of characters from all the old series, but glimpses of the new ones. I will say I was a bit confused for a bit, wondered if I missed some books coming out as I didn't have a clue about the new commandos, yet they were written about so familiarly. Some of the recipes look interesting and I will try them out. Overall if you are a fan of this author, this is one to check out.

And yes, I’ve got favorite recipes from previous cookbooks and can say this one will be no different😋 With KA providing the narrative, revisiting old characters and new is also a given so have fun with a blitz down memory lane. I also enjoyed seeing who the guys from her new Dream series are being paired up with, as well as the personal, poignant bits KA dropped along the way. Just a note: KA’s portion of royalties earned will be divided equally among her Rock Chick Nation charities and she’s got some good ones! Good food, short stories, good cause💗

I would say I am feeling pretty full and satisfied. The narration of this book is so unique and clever and smart. Just in Kristen Ashley style. She has arrived at Denver to collect the recipes from the commandoes of Hawk Delgado( my original KA man!!!). And it becomes a full on nostalgic trip. For her. For me. The rock chicks. The dream team. Fortnum's. Smithie's. You ask for it and you have it. And I loved reading all those recipes with special touch from the characters. Suzanne Johnson did a fabulous job and I loved how KA added her notes. I am a terrible cook but I guess I will nag my mom till she makes some of these for me. Dream Bites Cookbook is best of the both worlds. Food for your soul and your stomach. I reviewed an early copy voluntarily

    I can’t wait to try out the recipes in Dream Bites Cookbook, they look yummy and doable.... much like the commandos who present them ;-). Along with recipes, Dream Bites is a fun collection of little scenes with KA and the characters from her new Dream Team series and even a few catch up moments with some of our other KA favorites. (Think, coffee made by Tex at Fortnum’s) There are very steamy scenes included! Turning on the oven and adding jalapeños may not be the only sources of heat in this bo I can’t wait to try out the recipes in Dream Bites Cookbook, they look yummy and doable.... much like the commandos who present them ;-).

I was a little disappointed that the ebook isn’t full of food photos so I know what my recipes should look like. I guess I’m going to need to put the paperback version on my Christmas wish list. -4 Stars!- -Diane-

    I totally LOVED this book! Who would have thought - awesome heroes from romance books, coming up with some great recipes - alongside snippets of their lives. It was at times funny, hot and romantic. I also dug KA’s little notes and commentary. Now I will need to read the actual books that these characters came from, as well as try out these recipes. I might also need to check out Suzanne’s other collaborations.

    this is the only one of Ms. Ashley's books that I've rated this low. I am a fan, purchased everything she's published, but this one rubbed me wrong. She hasn't written the rest of the Dream Team's stories yet. I find it opportunistic to publish this cookbook, clearly in time to take advantage of the holidays, without having already told their stories. I just didn't take her to be that type of person.

    Suzanne M. Johnson is the family-trained cook who has collaborated with several famous romance novelists to create cookbook-slash-novellas. Johnson lives in Georgia - which makes most of the recipes here very, VERY Southern. There's a lot of ingredients that scream, "Hey y'all, I'm from the South, but I'm pretending to be a man who lives in Denver, cooking for his gf/wife." Some mainstay ingredients in most of Johnson's recipes: jalapeño, chili powder, cayenne, avocado, pimento, etc. Also, autho Suzanne M.

Some mainstay ingredients in most of Johnson's recipes: jalapeño, chili powder, cayenne, avocado, pimento, etc. Also, author Kristen Ashley repeatedly praises Johnson's pepper jellies. There are also a few recipes that use "dry hush puppy mix." I had to check what the hey those two were. Again, #southern. I just wish Johnson had researched about Denver's local ingredients, and used some of those in the Dream Men's recipes. Rocky Mountain Oysters - or creative homemade alternatives using easy-to-find ingredients, maybe. Lamb, trout, and green chilies would have been great ingredients to use, too, by these manly men, too. (A quick Google search on Colorado foods would lead one to see that Colorado "is actually the 4th largest lamb and sheep producer in the country with meat from this area being known for it's milder taste." Sources: outtherecolorado.com; rockymountainfoodtours.com) Her two steak recipes, however, are Da Bomb. I'm definitely gonna try the Filet with Blue Cheese Sauce one of these days. Likewise, the cheese sauce from Johnson's "Smoked Mac and Cheese" recipe. Oh, and the Ham and Hash Casserole, too. I'm also sad that the e-copy I have of "Dream Bites" only has the recipe written. No pictures of the final product. I had to use a lot of imagination and Google searching to even understand what some of the ingredients and final products looked like. On the flip side, Ashley confidently weaves her unique story-telling style - where she envisions herself walking INTO her books, meeting and talking with the fictional characters she had created. Too bad only book 1 of her Dream Team series has been published prior to "Dream Bites Cookbook's" release. Now, I feel like I don't need to read the rest of the Dream Team books, 'coz I know who the protagonists are and what their HEA looks like. No, I don't care to read about the process of how Boone, Axl, and Auggie got to their HEAs - Ashley can be pretty damned predictable anyway with her plots involving macho, alpha men and sassy, yet sweet women. Ditto on her dialogues. ALL of Ashley's characters "sound" the same. TBH, I like "Dream Bites" the best out of all the KA books I've read in 2019 and 2020. It cuts all the B.S. down and limits the one-sentenced paragraphs that KA is notorious for. I really loved how KA revealed that her inspiration for her Axl character was a cat of hers (whom I presume has only expired and gone to cat heaven), also named Axl. One of the Axl recipes in "Dream Bites" is a dish called Fried Pork Sandwich (labelled as KA's Favorite). KA also mentions that she has never seen this dish anywhere except in... INDIANA. Where she had also lived. If Axl turns out to be true Coloradan, I'd be disappointed.

    The recipes look good, but the story around it all was pretty lame. I love Kristen Ashley books, don’t get me wrong. But I get like this was just a lame push of as many of her characters as possible into one book. And I’ll say it again. She reveals in the RC books that Jane is Kristen Ashley. That’s her pen name. But then she writes herself into this “book” as a separate character that no one in Fortnum’s recognizes. Which is stupid because everyone in Fortnum’s knows Jane.

    Only Kristen Ashley could turn a cookbook into both culinary and literary awesomeness. Seriously this woman has undeniable talent. [image error] What I loved best about this cookbook? Not the recipes (although amazing), not the short stories (yet they made me reminisce, laugh, and feel words like “babe” and “fuck”), it was a look into the mind of Kristen herself. The way she wrote the story as a character writing a cookbook while she met with the commandos at many Denver haunts was just fabulous.

The way she wrote the story as a character writing a cookbook while she met with the commandos at many Denver haunts was just fabulous. We got to see how she feels about some of her favorite characters. She went to Fortnums, Los Delicias, Lee and Indy’s condo, Tacks house in the mountains, and of course, Smithies. It was freaking magical! Along with that, we got a few glimpses into KA’s “real” life. Her inspiration for Tod’s character, her beloved cat, and when Axl gives her his “special” recipe your heart might just combust. Her corresponding recipe, picture, and commentary about her mom made me cry. I felt that...how that meal brings her special memories of her mom. This was light, it was fun, and it told us a lot about Kristen Ashley the woman and the genius of her writing. We also got just a tiny glimpse and how she creates her characters. I can picture her with a glass of wine or a cosmo sitting in her pj’s curled up on the couch having a conversation almost with herself, but not. Maybe it’s a light dream. A hot guy, an alpha, is sitting across from her with his legs splayed wide telling her about this “gorgeous as fuck” woman who tries his patience but he can’t get enough of. He says simply “babe.” and your stomach quivers. When he looks up at the ceiling and mutters “fuuuck” all your girl parts quiver. Let me tell you, if I had a day, just one day with Kristen Ashley I would hope it would go like this: We’d start the day at Fortnums getting some coffee from Tex. Then head up the mountain for pancakes with Tack. (Katie doesn’t leave Tack’s house!) We’d head out to the mall for some serious girls shopping. The afternoon will probably bring another cup of coffee and lunch as Las Delicias. We’ll head to Hank and Ava’s for wine, music, cashews, and shoe swapping with Tod. Of course, we head to Stella’s concert where we rock with the chicks! (They are all there) Now, we’re drunk so the hot bunch and commandos pick us up to go to Smithies. (I ride with Lee, *sigh*) After Smithies we end the night at the condo, drinking wine and laughing until we cry. Yeah, I got all that from a cookbook. If you are a Kristen Ashley fan, I know you’ll get it. Rock On!

In Dream Bites, I really liked reading stories featuring each of the new couples to come and getting a glimpse into their loves as a preview. I'm excited for the upcoming heroines- an artist, a single mom, and a house flipping chick! Kristen Ashley does insert herself as a character in the stories, which she has done in the past and I found kind of cheesy, but it bothered me less in this case and I didn't mind it. The recipes in the book look really good. I'm definitely going to try some of them out, especially the Buffalo Chicken Rolls. I really liked that these are recipes from the men, who cook for their ladies, as my hubby is the chef in our family too. I did wish there were more pictures of the food, as there are only a few. Otherwise, this was a good book. The book is worth reading, even if you aren't a cook and are just interested in the stories. But the recipes look so good that they might be enough to tempt you to try. Dream Bites makes me excited for the Dream Team series and more to come from Ms. Ashley! *arc provided in exchange for an honest review*

The stories take place in Denver, so expect to catch up with a few more people than just our commandoes, because there are quite a few connections to the commandoes, and the authour, in this town. I loved the stories, I immediately earmarked some recipes to make, and with proceeds going to charities, all three of these combine to make your heart a warm and happy place <3

    Loved it! This isn't your typical cookbook in that there are just some tid bits from the author and then recipes. There are recipes yes, but they're interspersed with short stories from Kristen Ashley's Dream Team with one couple's book already completed and small tidbits of the awesomeness to come. It gives a small sneak peek into their lives and I can't wait to read their fleshed out books. That being said, I've read the entirety but I haven't made any of the recipes yet.

    Fabulous mix of KA books and cookbook This was a fabulous mix of KA books and cookbooks. As always I loved reading the bits from KA characters, like visiting old friends; they made me smile and laugh, and want to reread books. And the recipes made me want to run to the kitchen and try them out, though for me, I might want to notify the HFD to be on standby in case I catch the kitchen on fire! LOL!
