Her Dakota Man is a rich satisfying read of masculinity, heart and of pure romance!
If there is indeed a Logan McKinnon in the world, may he kindly step forward! Logan, the hero of this novel is what made the book such an enriching read for me. Sexy, alpha and a true man Logan had me from the moment I was introduced to him!
Author Lisa Mondello has an extraordinary talent for writing. This was my first time ever reviewing anything penned by her and it won't be my last. There were many factors I enjoyed about this novel, but the writing style is what I loved most. The novel is fresh, it is hot and it has heart! Honestly, Her Dakota Man is exactly what a Romance novel should be!
For the last few years Poppy Ericksen has attempted to forget the life and the man she left behind in South Dakota. Her sole purpose of leaving was so that she wouldn't have to witness the man she loved, loving another woman. Upon hearing the confession of a close friend on their deathbed, Poppy returns to her native state and into the fiery flames of Logan Mondello. Poppy has a secret and Logan has to know the truth. But will Logan truly understand once the truth is revealed?
Logan McKinnon is a single dad having lost his wife the year before. It is hard enough raising his son solo, but the fact that together they make their home in the Badlands of South Dakota has Logan seeing more than his fair share of bad times. That includes seeing Poppy again for the first time in years. Poppy is an old flame and his wife's best friend. Since Poppy has nowhere to go upon her arrival to help with a flood that nearly wiped their hometown off the map, Logan offers Poppy a bed inside his home.
This is where the novel gets so tempting and so good! The chemistry instantly sparked between Logan and Poppy. The romance remained the central focus of this novel and honestly I didn't find very many flaws. Overall this book is a must-read for romance fans!
