Nothing like floating on a life raft with your buddies after escaping a sinking ship and puking off the side to reflect on one's life. But that's exactly what Logan McCabe finds himself doing. When the discussion leads to the one thing they'd go back in time to change, there's only one thing floating in Logan's mind. The sizzling one night stand he shared with a woman eleven years ago that rocked his world. So what's a man to do? Look her up, track her down, and proposition her for more, of course. Abby Parker is sensible, from her actions to her low heeled sandals. She had one night of wild eleven years ago, and got herself a souvenir to cherish the memory on top of it. She's not looking for a walk on the wild side again, but when the sexy, tatted and dirty talking Logan shows up on her door, he throws her perfectly sensible life for one hell of a loop. His Fantasy Girl is the first book in Nina's scorching new Things To Do Before You Die series. If you love dirty talkers with a bit of a kinky side, heroines that are proper but with that right amount of wild to drive the hero even wilder, and a whole lot of hot sexy loving, this book is sure to please. I like the way you look at my cock. Like you're hungry for it and you'll let me do whatever I like with it." Logan is an ex-con with an aversion to cops, and the Abby eleven years later just happens to be a detective. A match made in heaven they are not. I absolutely loved these two together. Abby may be a touch prissy, but she sure gives as good as she gets. Logan is everything I've come to love in a Brazen hero, totally alpha and a dirty talking god. Add in a secret pregnancy trope, and watch the sparks fly! My only quibble is what I felt was a little too much cheese with the ending. (view spoiler)[I'm not a fan of marriage proposals after weeks of being together (hide spoiler)] But that certainly didn't make this any less good. If you're looking for a sizzling romance to spend an evening with, look no further than this one. ARC courtesy of publisher in exchange for an honest review For more reviews visit

I think burbs are important... because if done right... they will tell you exactly what you will get. Nina Croft and Brazen know their stuff. They said fantasy and reality would collide and it really did in this book. We got a theme of the bad boy hook up with the good girl years ago...Both never forgot the feelings and excitement of that night. Both had souvenirs from that one time... He, a prison record which turned him around to the straight and narrow, with an edge... She, a 10 year old daughter and determination which sustained her in her career as a police officer. These two have lived apart and only a life changing moment causes him to seek her out...for she was the fantasy which held him together for the year he was away...... thoughts of her and their time together gave him the ability to suck it up, put his head on straight and make it through. By having this scare on the seas with two close friends...he decides life is too short to not follow his gut and find his "fantasy girl". He seeks her out thinking not too much of how things will turn out... his mind clouded by the lust and desire he held for her. Upon seeing him again, she is stunned as she never thought she would. She hadn't intended to hide her daughter from him... she went to the scene of their hook up only to be informed he was in jail...At 18, that was a lot to take in while still reeling from finding out she was pregnant...Her main concern was to raise her baby...and that stayed her focus. So this was the reality; a man denied his freedom learned from the experience and made a success out of his life...is shaken up, looks to find that one girl who had played in his mind for years...finds her and then what... Well, this is where fantasy plays a huge part for the reader... because our gal who has been extremely sensible to her detriment... meaning no real fun and games over the past 10 years which equaled the passion her time with her bad boy...spends very little time with him.... And Bam... He is dirty talking to her, hands are in places confirming how excited she is from said dirty talking...and she sees stars... These two have this inability to not get together...even when she is telling herself...she needs to step back...For this bad boy is not into relationships and she doesn't know him except she is friggin attracted to him like crazy. Eventually, she tells him he has a daughter which stuns and hurts him. Growing up, he missed having his father for many years... and he would never knowingly do that to a child of his... So what we have is a couple who must find common ground for the sake of their daughter and also figure out what they are going to do about all this sexual pull they have for each other...neither thinking either of them will be in it for the long haul...for he thinks she is too perfect for him and she thinks she is not hot enough for him. Take all of the above, lace hot sexy talk, a man who has no problem going after his "fantasy girl" and a woman who must decide what is more important, personal happiness or her job. Nina Croft puts all of these things together as promised... with fantasy and reality colliding. A gifted copy was provided by Brazen via NetGalley for an honest review.

Stars! I love this author’s work, there is just something about Nina’s writing style and characters that ticks the boxes for me every time. His Fantasy Girl was absolutely no exception, really entertaining and sexy, with a few giggles and a little drama thrown in for good measure. After finding themselves stuck on a life raft when the cruise ship they are traveling on sinks Logan McCabe and his two friends make a pact that they are going to go back and see if the women that meant so much to them in the past, really are the one’s that got away. For Logan that is very much a one, in the form of the ‘night stand’ variety, and he gets a little more than he bargained for when he knocks on Abigail Parker's door, after eleven years. The chemistry between this couple is hot from the get-go, Abi doesn’t want to want the sexy, long haired, tattooed night-club owner, and Logan is determined to charm her out of her pants, and into his bed by using every trick he has up his sleeve. ”I like the way you look at my cock… Like you’re hungry for it and you’ll let me do whatever I like with it.” Nina Croft knows how to craft the perfect Brazen book in my opinion, and of late I think this is something the publisher has struggled with massively. His Fantasy Girl has the perfect balance of story, sexy times, drama and character development. Nothing is dragged out for too long, things get going really quickly, and you like the characters that are involved. Another Winner for me, and I am looking forward to seeing where the next book in the Things to do Before You Die series takes us.

    2 stars! ** This book just didn't do it for me. I am NINA CROFT's fan, but this one was a huge disappointment. Most of it was sex, sex and sex. The characters were boring and annoying. The whole book was bleak. There were several things that bothered me. 1. I know that Abby hadn't seen Logan for eleven years, but I think that one should recognize the father of her child. 1.1. The child that looks exactly like her father. 2. So you see a man that knocked you up after a decade and you just jump into his 2 stars! ** This book just didn't do it for me.

They "loved" each other after couple of weeks - most of it they were ignoring each other and when they weren't they were hooking up. Yeah. I can see that this is where you learn about the other person and actually fall in love with him. I've been doing it wrong my entire life. 4. Why is it such a big deal that she's a part of the police? She wasn't the one who locked Logan up. She was barely 18 at that time soo.. 5. Some daugther-mother relationship? Where? Abby claimed to have done everything for her daughter but I haven't seen almost any interaction and I don't think that Abby even thought about her. 6. Her 10 year old dauger was behaving like she was 30. 7. I could probably go on and on, but I'll end it here. Abruptly. Like the book.

While this one started off shaky for me, I ended up enjoying it towards the end, especially the romance.

The sexy times were well-written and were fun to read. I liked the romance a lot too. The two of them weren't sure what to do with each other especially since Logan was an ex-con and Abigail was a police sergeant, but they slowly got to know each other physically and emotionally and through their daughter. The ending was sweet and completely satisfying. Nina Croft is a Brazen author I'll be checking out in the future.

His was to look up the girl that got away, which meant searching out the nameless siren that had totally captivated him that night eleven years ago. She may be nameless, but he had revisited her in his constant fantasies, that had got him through a difficult time in his life. Abigail Parker wrote the book on sensible, excluding her eighteenth birthday, when she took a little duck courage, and a lot of pluck, and spent the night with the least sensible man she could possibly find. What Abby didn’t expect was to have an everlasting reminder of that night, in her daughter, Jennifer. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, from the immediate chemistry between these two, to the smart mouth tussles. Logan had been mislabelled, and Abby struggled with the alignment of that against her ordered life. Any story with an injection of kid, has me on side immediately. And although Jenny was ten, she still had that wonderful innocence that melted Logan’s heart. This author writes an enjoyable, steamy story, having previously enjoyed her Babysitting a Billionaire series. I look forward to more from Nina for sure.

    I love second chance romances and I'm totally into the secret baby trope right now so this was exactly what I wanted. I loved that Abby was the first thing Logan thought of after a near death experience and that he set out to reconnect with "the one that got away". There was definite chemistry between Abby and Logan. As soon as they saw each other again, they couldn't keep their hands off one another. I was happy that Logan, while mad, didn't treat Abby like crap after finding out about Jenny.

And the only thing that Logan could think of was his one hot wild sexy night eleven years ago with this hot young 18 year old girl. This young woman turned out to be his fantasy girl. Every dream and sexual fantasy would always go back to that one night and girl. And so begins Logan search for his fantasy girl, Abigail Parker. On her eighteenth birthday, Abigail Parker decided one night to be reckless. One night to be wild and have some fun. Well, Abigail did just that. She had one hot passionate night with a man that she met at a nightclub. And the end result was her being pregnant with Jenny. Fast forward to eleven years later, Abigail never expected to see Logan standing on her doorstep. Unaware that he is a father, Logan convinces Abigail to let loose and submit to his sexual fantasies. As Logan and Abigail begins a whirlwind of sexual fantasy, Abigail finally tells him that he is the father to their daughter, Jenny. So when fantasy collides with reality, will Logan realize that his fantasy girl could be his shot at a second chance? His Fantasy Girl by Nina Croft had every elements that every Brazen junkie craves from hot sex, dirty talking alpha males, and of course those HEA endings that will leave a smile on your face. This book was a great read and definitely a reminder that fantasy can become a reality. Review can also be found on Four Chicks Flipping Pages: http://fourchicksflippingpages.weebly...Nina Croft

When he got out of prison he straightened up, but he's still a tattooed, long-haired, club-owning bad boy. And he's leery of cops. Logan's Fantasy Girl is Abigail Parker, now a prim and proper police sergeant who is working hard to become a detective. She must be circumspect in her personal life. She is surprised and terrified to find Logan on her doorstep, because she has a secret. Logan is the father of her 10-year-old daughter, and she never told him. Logan is angry that he didn't know about his daughter, and feels that Abby thinks he isn't good enough for her or their daughter. And yet the sparks fly between Abby and Logan. But Logan isn't a relationship kind of guy, and Abby is. No matter how attracted they are to each other, they can't seem to get beyond that. ... Abby was a bit too prim and proper and hurtful to Logan for me, which is why this book earned only 4*s. But I loved bad-boy Logan and his hot fantasies. And this book is HOT! There's a dash of humor to the story which I also loved. The book is a quick read and I couldn't put it down. I almost read it in one sitting. The last scene before the epilogue is heart-warming and perfect. HIS FANTASY GIRL is closely tied to the characters of Croft's TAKING CONTROL. Logan is Declan's half brother and Rory's son. I recommend both HIS FANTASY GIRL and TAKING CONTROL. In fact, I recommend just about anything from Nina Croft if the premise interests you. I haven't read a bad book from her yet. Enjoy!

The chemistry is ubër hot and the sex scenes are hot and steamy but the relationship is a bit on the messy side with careers, emotional issues and the past keeping the turmoil high while these strong compelling characters strive for their happily ever afters in this fast paced, smooth flowing plot that captivates readers with suspense and romance. Imogen may think that Logan is still the sexiest man she has ever seen and the chemistry keeps pulling her right back in but the last thing she needs is the dirty-talking, tattooed, ex-con in her life just when she’s up for a promotion and the expectation builds as sparks fly and emotions erupt keeping everyone on the edge of their seat. Well written scenes and details make it easy for the reader to become absorbed in the story and intriguing events guarantee that there is never a dull moment between Imogen and Logan. Imogen and Logan captured my attention right away and held me hostage throughout the story and I can’t wait to find out how Logan’s friends’ to do list turns out, especially after that teasing glimpse.

    While the writing style isn't bad (the only reason for the one star rating), I really can't say much else that's kind about this book. I love a hot, steamy read as much as the next but crass, lewd, arrogant, self centred jerks do nothing for me. I don't know about a turn on, it's a complete turn off for me.

There's nothing like a near death experience to make a guy reassess his life. And that's exactly what nightclub owner Logan McCabe decides to do, starting with looking up the girl he spent one wild night with eleven years ago, right before his life turned to crap. He spent a year fantasizing about her. Now he's ready to see how reality matches up. Abigail Parker is a perfectionist. She's only strayed from the straight and narrow once in her life, on her eighteenth birthday. It was supposed to be one wild night with a totally unsuitable man before she settled into her sensible future. Instead it changed her life forever. Logan might still be the sexiest man Abigail has ever seen, but a dirty-talking, tattooed, ex-con is the last thing she needs in her perfect life. He claims she's his fantasy girl, but what he doesn't know is she's also the mother of his ten-year old daughter. ••••••••••• REVIEW: 3.5 stars-- HIS FANTASY GIRL is the first installment in Nina Croft’s THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE contemporary, adult, erotic, romance series focusing on three friends-Vito, Josh and Logan. Six weeks earlier, a cruise ship fire left the three friends struggling to survive; each made a commitment to go after the one that got away. This is security nightclub owner Logan McCabe, and Abigail Parker’s story line. Told from dual third person perspectives (Logan and Abigail) HIS FANTASY GIRL is a second chance, of sorts, for two people whose lives changed forever following a one-night stand. Fast forward eleven years, when Logan comes face to face with the woman who has starred in all of his fantasies but a woman who barely acknowledges their one night together. Logan disappeared following their night of passion, and in the ensuing time Abigail’s life had to be put on hold. Abigail is a single mother, to Logan’s ten year old daughter, and a woman determined to keep her distance until her daughter begins to ask questions about the man she has never met. Enter Logan McCabe, who wants to rekindle his relationship with Abigail Parker, but Abigail knows that to begin something with Logan could be the downfall of her future plans. HIS FANTASY GIRL reveals a little bit of the history between Abigail and Logan –their introduction and one night stand but reveals very little about the ensuing years. Logan spent one year in prison following an assault on a police officer, but the information is limited as to the who, what and why. The background about the cruise ship fire is also limited although we know that the three friends have sworn to do something about their one big regret while floating out to sea, waiting to be rescued. The rekindling of the relationship is immediate. Logan is a man who goes after what he wants, and he wants Abigail Parker. Now that she has revealed the existence of their daughter, Logan is more than determined to keep Abigail in his life. The $ex scenes are intimate, intense and erotic. The world building focuses on Logan’s relationship with Abigail and his daughter; as well as his heated romance with the woman who continues to star in his real-life fantasies. HIS FANTASY GIRL is a story about heartbreak and loss; the emotional journey about two people whose lives went in different directions; and about first impressions, judgmental attitudes, and a double standard in the work place. The premise is enjoyable; the characters are fated; the romance is sexy and energetic. Abigail has no problems starting back up where it all began. Own a copy www.thereadingcafe.com

    His Fantasy Girl is a standalone novel by author Nina Croft. It is written in alternating third person from the main characters point-of-views. It has an HEA and no cliffhanger. Don't let my rating on this book fool you, I did enjoy it. As much as I did enjoy it though, it was middle of the road for me. I have to admit that I was hugely confused with this book at first. I thought I was possibly reading the wrong thing. Reading the synopsis for it you'll have conflicting information depending on His Fantasy Girl is a standalone novel by author Nina Croft.

As much as I did enjoy it though, it was middle of the road for me. I have to admit that I was hugely confused with this book at first. I thought I was possibly reading the wrong thing. Reading the synopsis for it you'll have conflicting information depending on where you get it. Mainly it comes down to the heroine's name. One place you're told it is Imogen, another you're told it's Abigail. Well, it ends up being Abigail in the book, and is shortened to Abby. Aside from that issue, the book was well written and I'm not about to hold a synopsis against an author. This book is a story line/Trope that I hadn't read before. I typically avoid books with ex-cons in them but this His Fantasy Girl just jumped out at me. Plus when you find out the reasoning for why Logan even went to jail it makes it completely different, or at least it did for me. Abby has moved on with her life. The only time she thinks about Logan is when she looks at her daughter. She also might secretly still considering her night with him, the best of her life. Too bad he was arrested the next morning. Abby has a job she loves, is working toward promotion, takes care of her daughter and doesn't seem to have any issues or hangups. Logan, on the other hand, has thought about Abby for years. In fact, for a year straight, he dreamed of her every single night. She was what got him through it all. He never sought her out after getting out of jail, but was more focused on picking up the pieces. So years later, he's still thinking about her and a brush with death forges a pack between three men (Logan's Buddies) to check up on the woman from their pasts. Logan wasn't expecting to still be attracted to Abby. Abby has a career to protect and a daughter to look out for, but she's still just as attracted to Logan. The spark between them in insane! These two struggle with circumstances around them and have to figure out how to make things work, if they even will work now. Overall, as I stated before, I really enjoyed this book, so don't let the rating confuse you. I would highly recommend it, especially if you like Nina Croft books (I do!) and if you want to read a different twist on a second chance romance trope.

    Honestly I first picked this one because of the author not really paying attention to the blurb or anything, just wanted to read it because she wrote it. I soon as I opened it up I realized this is a surprise because I have read mostly a different genre from her. When a author writes different types of romance it really shows if they are versatile and can they do it. Some pick not to but when they do I am always delighted that I can be given yet another part of their gift to us the reader.

Some pick not to but when they do I am always delighted that I can be given yet another part of their gift to us the reader. You are first given how this all came about with thanks to a nearly biting the big one but surviving they ask themselves what is one of their regrets. This one will center mainly around Logan and how he tells about when he was in prison the one thing that kept him going was his fantasy girl the one he had the one night with. This pushes him to now want to see if the real deal matches. Wow nelly I am intrigued now because I also want to see how she will react. Abigail is now a mother and even though it had not been easy things were starting to change. When he shows up at her door I was on pins and needles and prods her to come see him once the shock is worn away. She has a right to be that way also because she was given something to remember that night whom she cherished-Jenny. by now though I am wrapped up tight in this novel with the author pulling the strings because I just love a happy ending and this has to be one right? Logan will be given several surprises also, she is a cop and has his daughter. You will be stuck like glue with them as the go forward with him exploring the fantasy girl and getting to know his daughter. Humor will be in there at times that will have you chuckling out loud with other times drooling. All in all this was one I was glad I entered because it had everything I would want in a hot contemporary romance with a twist added. Characters that had you interacting with them even though they can not respond LOL. Does he have any regrets now? The answer is in there.

    First Impression: Extremely well-written with an engaging and dynamic hero. I seriously, hardcore, loved this story. Not only did it combine a few really great tropes—one night stand, secret baby, different worlds—but it also had a hero and heroine that rocked some mega-hot scenes together. Logan McCabe is a bad boy ex-con who’s managed to turn his life around in the past decade, but a near death experience makes him long for the woman who got him through some of the darkest days of his life—his First Impression: Extremely well-written with an engaging and dynamic hero. I seriously, hardcore, loved this story. Not only did it combine a few really great tropes—one night stand, secret baby, different worlds—but it also had a hero and heroine that rocked some mega-hot scenes together. Logan McCabe is a bad boy ex-con who’s managed to turn his life around in the past decade, but a near death experience makes him long for the woman who got him through some of the darkest days of his life—his fantasy girl, Abigail Parker. The woman who gave birth to the daughter he didn’t know he had. Now in the past when I’ve read stories with these particular elements, I’ve always been weary of them, sometimes outright avoiding them, but this particular book combines things in a way that made me absolutely fall in love with the characters–and with the story. I get why Abby did what she did, and I get why Logan held onto the fantasy image of her for all of these years, too. The author did a phenomenal job bringing all the story elements of this book together and creating an unforgettably hot read with some fantastic emotional depth to the characters. I love, love, love this story, and I so dig Logan. I love his bad boy exterior and his good man heart. He’s exactly the kind of guy I would want for his newly discovered daughter and for a woman like Abby, and vice versa. They fit so well together, and the story flowed effortlessly, making for a fast-paced and wholly magnetic read. Do yourself a favor and read this book, folks. It’s got everything you’d want in a traditionally plotted romance, and yet, it’s done in such a fantastic and memorable way. I loved it!

    I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Imagine having a one night stand and getting pregnant from that said one night stand. You don't hear anything from the guy, and you don't tell him about having his kid as well. Then, after 11 years, you find that guy standing on your door, wanting to catch up with you. That's exactly what happened to the heroine. It wasn't the hero's fault that he didn't know about the kid because the heroine decided I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I have read books from Nina Croft before, and I also enjoyed those. This book is sweet and sexy. Sweet because of the daughter. Also, the hero wasn't a bad man, he just had a bad history. Sexy because the hero and the heroine together really had great chemistry. Aside from the one-night-stand-turned-parents kind of story, this was also about two people who are opposites when it comes to reputation and career. The heroine was a police officer. The hero was an ex-con. The heroine was very serious with her career and needed her peers to take her seriously, being that she was a woman. Being associated with people like the hero can damage her career. It is a story about fighting for what you want and standing up for it. It's a good book that I will gladly recommend.

    Suddenly wanting a chance with his one-night stand 11 years ago - with only memories of hot sex driving him - after a shipwreck that supposedly made him reevaluate his priorities, Logan McCabe decides to look up a woman with whom he has had no contact ever since that day to replay his fantasies about her in technicolour.

It's as far as the plan goes. That, in itself, made very little sense to me (there's the assumption that nothing has changed in the intervening years and of course, sexual chemistry would be as hot as always) and the straight plunge into sex the moment he finds Abigail Parker made me wonder if this was one of those "plots" in porn videos that existed just so that characters could hurry onto the bedroom action. The story gets a little more grounded when Logan discovers that he is in fact, saddled with a daughter. But for lust to turn to love when him and Abby have nothing in common...? Then again, if this is erotica, then the believability of the narrative really isn't the point here, even if there's really nothing wrong with the writing itself. *ARC by netgalley (and I'm ever grateful, mind)

    I found this story completely entertaining. Two very different people with a shared past come together again for two very different reasons. Logan McCabe comes from a family with a very shady past but he's worked hard to make something of himself and stay on the right side of the law. If there is anything he learned from his past mistakes is that he never wants to go to prison again. When a near death experience has him looking at his life, he decides he wants to find his "fantasy girl". The one I found this story completely entertaining.

Abigail Parker has always been the good girl. Living her life according to others expectations. She knows Logan McCabe isn't right for her. She knew it 11 years ago and she knows it now. Yet the pull between them is intense. And there is the matter of her 10 year old daughter who desperately wants to know her father. How will Logan react to news of his fatherhood all these years later?? A great sexy read. I definitely recommend it.

    The bonus star would be because of the result of 11 years ago - the bad boy - the dog - and the process for the happy ending. What I less was how sensible Jenny was... good yes but too much a grown up for some part.

    To read this review and others like it check out my site at www.homelovebooks.com So I know I have mentioned before how I have mixed feelings about the whole hidden child thing, but in some cases, where the child isn't kept from the other parent because of vindictive reasons, I tend to like the storyline. So in this story, Logan meets a girl at the club owned by his father, her name is Abby, and its her 18th birthday, they spend an incredibly hot night together, and then go their separate ways.

So in this story, Logan meets a girl at the club owned by his father, her name is Abby, and its her 18th birthday, they spend an incredibly hot night together, and then go their separate ways. Now I'm not really a fan of women hiding kids from their fathers, but in this case, she's a super young girl, and when she goes to find this guy who she had the hot one night stand with, well she's told he is in jail, so it a pretty good reason since she doesn't know anything about him other than that his new address is in the slammer. So I do have to admit I really liked Abby as a character. She's a single mom, but she works her bum off to provide a good life for her daughter. It's clear how much she cares about her daughter and only wants the best for her. Also, she has worked hard for herself too, she's a police officer, and she is working hard to move up the chain. I like a woman who has ambition and works hard to get where she wants to be. But really, the thing I respected the most about her is that when Logan shows up on her door out of the blue, she tells him about their child (yes it took a minute, I would have been shocked too) and she is totally prepared for him to be apart of their daughters life. I liked that about her, she tries hard to make sure her daughter feels included in her new family. As for Logan... hmm... well I have mixed feelings about this guy. I have to say I was really impressed with how quickly he wanted to be involved with his daughter, and how good he was with her. He really wanted to make her apart of his life in a seriously meaningful way, and not just like the weekend guy. Now as for how he was with Abby, well I'm not really sure how I feel about it. So Abby is his fantasy girl, because she is the girl that he fantasized about when he was in jail for a year, and after a near death experience he searched her out. But in the beginning he really doesn't treat her much like a person, more like a pleasure object and that's about it. She keeps telling him they need to talk, and he keeps saying when we are done, and this happens like 2 or 3 time. And even after he finds out about his daughter, it seems like the only thing he is interested in with Abby is sex. And when he does come around to really wanting her, he's also kind of insecure about himself, and a little bit judgement about every little thing that comes out of Abby's mouth. But all in all, I he was okay, and I like the chemistry that they had together. If you like unlikely pairings, or if you like books with secret kids, then this might be a book you want to check out. It had good pacing, and a lot of heat, and was a good solid read for me.

    3.5 in-dirty-talk-Heaven Stars Holy kink, Batman! Does this woman know how to write a dirty talker! Abby and Logan had one night of fantastic sex when they were 18 and 21. The next day Logan got himself into some trouble and was sent to prison for a year. He spent those 365 nights fantasizing about Abby and all the things he would love to do to her, but when he finally got out he wasn’t sure the girl of that night could measure up to his fantasies, so he decided to keep the fantasy instead of the 3.5 in-dirty-talk-Heaven Stars Holy kink, Batman! Does this woman know how to write a dirty talker! Abby and Logan had one night of fantastic sex when they were 18 and 21. The next day Logan got himself into some trouble and was sent to prison for a year. He spent those 365 nights fantasizing about Abby and all the things he would love to do to her, but when he finally got out he wasn’t sure the girl of that night could measure up to his fantasies, so he decided to keep the fantasy instead of the possibilty of the real thing. Ten years later, after a quasi near death experience he and some friends got to talking about their lives regrets, and he decided to finally look up the one girl he had spent the last decade comparing all other women to. To say Abby was shocked when she realized the hot bad boy on her doorstep is the same guy she had the one-night-stand is an understatement. But it seems even after a decade her body reacts the same way to all the male perfection that is Logan as that one first time. Even when all she wants is tell him they have a daughter together her hormones take her reason hostage and all she can do is sigh and… you know, scream his name. His Fantasy Girl is the story of Logan and Abby actually getting to know each other (and not only in the biblical sense… though they do get reacquainted) and how to be the parents their daughter needs. They’ll have to learn to control this crazy chemistry they share because Logan doesn’t do commitment and he certainly doesn’t fit into Abby’s controlled and meticulously planned life. But as we all know from firsthand experience (and reading lots and lots of romance books) things never go as planned, so soon they are both struggling to not get too attached to each other and affect their ability to be there for little Jenny. This was a very entertaining read. Logan has one filthy, filthy mouth. And an even dirtier imagination… let’s just say he was very thorough in his fantasizing endeavors. Abby was a bit of an uptight twat at times. It took me some time to warm up to her and the way she viewed the world. But when we learn of the way she grew up (nothing terrible, swear), we get a little understanding, and I loved how Logan got to loosen her up a bit. Though the story is set in London, to me it didn’t come through. Maybe I was expecting everyone to speak like they were in a Jane Austen novel, I don’t know, but it threw me a little. This was a sweet (the family side) and super hot (their fantasy playing) read. I’m not at all opposed to getting to know what the stories of Logan’s two friends will be. *I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review*
