Real Good Man (Real Duet #1)
by Meghan March
Release Date: January 3, 2017
5 SUPER HERO CROWNS
Meghan March just seems unable to write a bad story. Her heroines are among my top favorites, her heroes are full-on alpha sexy, and her stories are so hot they will melt your eReader, but Meghan March may have broken the mold with Real Good Man.
Banner, as a heroine, is absolutely amazing. Her mouth, her ownership of her sexuality, and her gumption to attack back are some of the best attributes about her. Her humor had me laughing out loud so many times throughout this., too. I also adore her desire to make it on her own and to be able to stand on her own two feet. She also has troubles, though, that plague her, such as her sexuality, which seems to be a double edged sword for her. While she loves physical intimacy and all things related to it, the manner in which she is treated by others and the comments made are demoralizing, and I think cast a light women mistreating women. Even though, this bothers her, it doesn’t slow her down or make her change her ways. It only emboldens her to live life her way, which is fierce and independent.
Logan is quite possibly the dirtiest hero I can remember Meghan March ever creating. The mouth on this man had me blushing several times throughout this book, but he is more than a good time in bed and a dirty mouth. He is truly a real good man, looking for a real good women who will not only match him in the bedroom but also in his life. His possessiveness of Banner is the appropriate amount, allowing her to be independent while also claiming her when necessary, and his heart and desire for more emotionally from Banner will have readers falling in love with Meghan March’s newest hero.
The secondary plot of this story is not what I was expecting. This part of the story ups the suspense and the intrigue, and left me craving the second book in this duet. I am intrigued by how this story line is going to play out and how it is going affect Banner and Logan’s relationship. In regards to the romantic plot line, Meghan March delivers the chemistry, physically and emotionally. There connection is believable because they establish it first through text messages and banter, and when they meet for the first time, it combusts into flames. The progression of their relationship is fraught with some obstacles, outside conflicts as well as internal, but the author uses this to develop their characterization in the novel as well as develop their relationship to make it authentic. The final OMG moment for the reader will leave readers counting down the days to Real Good Love.
Meghan March’s Real Good Man is everything I love in her books. It is steamy and romantic, well-written and entertaining, and filled with sassy heroines and dominant heroes. She is an author who never lets me down, and her stories are always automatic one-clicks for me. Real Good Man is just the epitome of everything that is perfect in a steamy romance, and it should definitely be one of the first novels you purchase in 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.”
