Show her what it’s like to be with a real good man. Real Good Man is book one of the Real Duet. Logan and Banner's story will conclude in Real Good Love, releasing January 17, 2017.
Finally, fifteen minutes after we said we’d meet, Logan Brantley walks into the tapas bar. Every curse word known to woman—and several I make up on the fly—flash through my brain. This isn’t fair. Logan Brantley is even sexier when he’s not dressed in camo and carrying a big gun. More than one head swings in his direction. Women flip their hair and uncross and re-cross their legs as he steps up to the hostess stand. A shaft of possessiveness lights up inside me, right along with nervous energy and my pounding heart. Back off, bitches. He’s not here for you. I hear the low rumble of his deep drawl when he speaks to the hostess. She gestures in my direction, and he turns. Piercing blue eyes find me at the table where a lone water glass sits in front of me. Liquid courage should definitely have been on the menu. Why didn’t I order a drink? Because I’m an idiot. Because I thought I could handle this. Now my heart is hammering so loud, my voice will probably be inaudible, or even worse—quaver when I speak. Logan walks toward me with long, sure strides. He’s taller than I realized. And broader. And bigger. Everywhere. He’s wearing a black Henley that stretches across his chest, leaving no doubt of the fact that the man is built. And his jeans. Jesus. They’re worn and snug in all the right places. The picture I found was clearly not recent, and it’s not just the fact that his brown hair is longer and shaggier. He’s one of those men who age well. Logan stops in front of me when he reaches the tall bar table. He says nothing as his gaze drops to the toes of my boots and drags up every inch of my body. “You’re a hard woman to find.”
|What happens when two people who are content in their lives, happily 'not in a relationship' find a deep connection through only means of text messages between each other decide to move past being strangers? In a few words - The best thing ever.|
Banner and Logan meet through text messages and develop a closeness that Logan decides to up by making the trip to New York from Kentucky and putting a face to all those text messages he's been receiving, especially those of late that have him wondering where things might lead. Banner isn't sure how to proceed once Logan comes to town, she's drawn to him but also is trying to change her ways and doesn't want to ruin their friendship by throwing herself at him.
Banner grew up in New York with parents who had little time for her and who were never satisfied by what she was doing. She's sassy and smart, she's inventive, coming up with her own ideas to form her own business. Banner is very independent and too proud to allow others to help her out without giving something in return, which is how she finds herself in Kentucky.
Logan's been inundated with offers from women who want to be "his". Women who are living on the dreams of happily ever after with Logan, even though he's not interested. Which makes it that much more fun to watch as he's determined to make Banner his woman. He's never really had to chase a woman before, but he's willing to do what it takes to win her over because he sees something in her, he's never seen in another woman.
The banter between Banner and Logan is amazing and shows how well they are pulled to one another, their chemistry sizzles, and the interactions between them, both of the friend variety and when things go further drew me in to the story and left me wanting more. This book held my interest from page one and had me laughing at times while rolling my eyes at others as Banner discovered how different small town Kentucky could be from the big city.
I really enjoyed the side characters in this book as well, especially Banner's elderly neighbor who was hilariously prudish and cranky but in a way you couldn't help but appreciate and love.
I can't wait to see where Meghan takes us with the rest of Banner and Logan's story in Real Good Love.
