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.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.camo and carrying a big gun. More than one head swings in his direction.

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 recent, and it’s not just the fact that his brown hair is longer and shaggier. He’s one of those men who age 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.”
I have been a fan of Meghan March ever since I read “Beneath This Mask”. When I heard that she would be releasing a new book I was over the moon. When I was chosen to receive an ARC of her new book I was one happy camper. I have not read all of her books, but those that I have read so far I have thoroughly enjoyed, and “Real Good Man” was no exception.
The story was not only sexy, it was sweet, funny and entertaining.
From the moment I began reading, I knew I would be in for a hell of a ride.
“It’s not like I sent him a pic of my amazing rack or something, so there’s no need to get your granny panties in a twist, Frau Frances.” My neighbor from across the hall, who I’d guess is older than the gates of hell, covers her ears and closes her eyes like a toddler.
I read it in one sitting. Yes, it was that addictive. It was a good thing I was alone while reading because persons may have thought I was crazy from the way I was grinning from ear to ear throughout most of the story.
Banner Regent, OMG! That girl is a riot. She is smart, witty and unapologetic about who she is. She couldn’t care less what anybody thought of her. She goes where and does what she pleases. She does not do relationships and is well known for her one night stands, which led to her calling herself, Manhattan’s Queen of One-Night Stands.
I first met Logan when I read the “Dirty Billionaire Trilogy.” I was glad to know that he would be getting his own story. Logan is a former Marine turned mechanic in a small town in Kentucky and a total hottie. He was a well sought after bachelor in the town, but he had no interest in any of the women there. By sheer coincidence, he and Banner began a texting relationship which would eventually evolve into something more. Logan was determined to find out if the reality of Banner matched his fantasy of her and so he decided that he had to meet her. Even though he felt she was out of his league, he was not about to let that deter him. When they finally met in person the chemistry was off the charts. Their attraction was undeniable.
The story was told from both Banner and Logan’s perspective which I appreciated. The word building was good which made for an easy read. I particularly enjoy the interaction between the characters. I liked that the focus was not just on Banner and Logan’s relationship. There is a mystery brewing and I am eager to see how that aspect of the story will develop.
I enjoyed this story, well, except for the ending, but that was only because it ended on a cliff-hanger. I am glad I will not be waiting long for the sequel.
This was a great start to the duology and I am eager to see the direction the remainder of the story will take.
“So, where do we go from here?”I slow for a stop sign and meet her stare. “We’re going to get to know each other. I’m going to take you out on dates and show you what we’ve both been missing. You’re gonna fall in love with me, Banner. That’s where we’re going from here.”
“She’s the game changer. And now I’ve got my work cut out for me to make sure I win the game.”
