Shel: Real Good Man by Meghan March is what I'm going to now
affectionately call a 'surprise attack' read and here's why:
Shel: I'm reading it; I'm liking it. It's funny. I'm liking it. The banter between Banner and Logan is good stuff. I'm liking it. Myrna is the best grouchy old lady ever. I'm liking it. Both Banner and Logan are interesting. I'm liking it. Things start heating up between them. I'm liking it. Then before I know it....BAM I'm loving it. Reading
more...LOVING IT. Get to the end? And dammit all to hell, it's over and I have to wait how long to get the next one?!! GAHHHHHH. OMG. NOOOOOOOOO. Nope. NO. WTH. Court: sneak attack, for the win. My unsuspecting emotions had no idea there would be so much in this book, but then when the really good parts were coming in spades, and the story was developing...it's like I suddenly realized...uh, duh...Meghan has done this in every book. Because her writing is brilliant she brings to life characters we fall in love with, and then deepens the plot SO MUCH! That we just can't handle it all!
Shel: See? sneak attack. I knew I was going to enjoy it because, honestly, I've yet to meet a Meghan March novel I haven't enjoyed; but, she lulled me into this comfort read where I was enjoying it and contemplating what was going to happen next and doing that thing where I laugh out loud to myself..and then BAM I find myself nearing the end and my heart rate is starting to pick up and I'm flipping pages faster and faster and then we get to the end and I'm DYING...dying I tell you...to read the next part and it's not ready yet. *sobs forever* Court: I am glad though that she told us from the get go that this is a duet. But why'd you have to make me all swoony, and fall in love with a bowling alley, and a cantankerous old woman, and a man who makes Bruce Banner jokes...and just, gah. Darn it all, I can't wait for the next book. But I am glad I married a real good man.
Shel: Without rewriting the synopsis or spoiling anything, here's what I think I'd want to know if I was contemplating reading this:
Shel: If you like Meghan March's strong and sassy women, her sweet and alpha males, her funny banter, her sexy af sexy times, and the idea of a good guy, this is definitely a good choice. It also features both NYC and BFE locales and all the things/people that come with those places. This duet also references characters from Dirty Billionaire and Dirty Girl but if you haven't read either of those series, you'll be absolutely 100% fine--I think it's fun for readers who already know those characters to see them mentioned but if you've never heard of them before, you won't feel like you're missing anything at all. And last but not least, the promise of what's to come is what makes this so interesting--there's a subplot or two or three! that make me eager and curious about what March will include and how she'll conclude Banner and Logan's story. Court: and it didn't hurt this reader, who hasn't gotten caught up with those (though I do own them because I'm a black belt book hoarder...) and is now all sorts of intrigued about those characters. There is a lot more to this book that meets the eye, and I am so glad it was my first read of 2017, I loved it, y'all!
What a fun read! Can't wait to see what happens next.
