There are no words to express how much I loved this book. From beginning to end, this book was so original and refreshing. The story had everything - strong female, sizzling hot sex scenes, mystery, good humor and one dirty talking male.

Logan is a mechanic from a small town and Banner is a New York City party girl. Their texting games turn soon into games of the heart. Logan is determined to meet her in person. And when he does, their chemistry is undeniable. Banner isn't sure of his ways at fir
I'm HOOKED! I'm a GONER! There is NO GOING BACK! Meghan March gives us another INTOXICATING and SEXY romance with REAL GOOD MAN, book one in her brand spankin' new duet! These characters are so incredibly easy to LOVE! Banner is a freakin' firecracker with tons of sass and Logan is gorgeous, rugged, and boy, does he have a DIRTY MOUTH on him! I ADORED every single second of this! And that ENDING though!

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 m

Banner is living in New York, and on the outside her life looks like just one massive carefree party, but is a party life always what it is cracked up to be? Or would it start to wear you down and become superficial?

Logan life is slightly different- working hard to re-build his reputation in his small town, isn’t an easy thing but will be worth while. When an accidental text exchange connects these two, things for both of them will begin to drastically change. But will fantasy live up to realit

I was blown away with this story!!! First, let me start off saying that I LOVED how this book started!!! It was a traditional meet and greet. Logan and Banner start talking via text messages and it only gets better from there!

The characters were amazing! Logan is this blue collar worker from Kentucky. He's the type of man who is hard working and isn't afraid to get his hand dirty. And OMG, he has this incredible alpha maleness thing going on with him...*fans self*. Banner is fun, quirky

This is the second Meghan March book I’ve read and it’s clear to see this woman creates some of the hottest alpha males out there in the literary world! I find her writing to be very entertaining and her stories seriously addictive. I could not get enough of REAL GOOD MAN and I am pretty sure that you won’t either!!! Be forewarned—this one is SCORCHI

Meghan March is the queen of dirty talking alphas and you know the moment you start reading one of her books, you have no choice but to crank up the AC while simultaneously stick your head in the freezer to cool the heck down! I Love that this author is never afraid to have her male heroes take charge and say whatever is on their mind. They’re extremely tough on the outside but they know how to treat women and I love seeing that.

➦Who doesn't want a real good man? Logan is a mechanic, works with his hands, lives in Kentucky... what else? drinks beer... probably. He's a legit good man with good manners and a big wrench.

➦Seriously, though

➦But personally I think that the heroine here (Banner) is the star of this story. She's a NY City party girl, an untamed wild animal with goals and ambitions. You go girl!

➦In all honesty, she's a cool chicka. SO. What happens here is that Banner and Logan somehow start texting. I'm trying

This was the last book I read in 2016 and I loved it!It was fast paced, sexy and funny, with an amazing hero to make you swoon and melt!


I loved this couple more than I expected.They made me laugh and swoon whenever they were together! Logan was fantastic. With his dirty mouth, sexy attitude and his good heart. I loved Banner, she's probably one of my favorite heroines. She was funny and honest. They were super hot and passionate together!

I really liked the premise of this latest novel by Meghan March. Feeling tired of overdone storylines about the same type of heroes? If your answer is yes, then you'll be glad to know that March has brought something a little fresh to the romance writing table. As you can guess I was more than ready to get my hands on part one of this duet and as always March provided

“Fall for a woman over text messages? No way in hell.”


I took one look at this book cover and read the synopsis and I was utterly done for. Wow! Let’s face it, who doesn’t love an ex-military alpha hero turned mechanic? I know I certainly do. I was highly anticipating this read, because it contains all the things I love about romance stories; a good ol’ boy from the south who has no problem fighting for his country, good with his hands and getting dirty.

I should have waited for this Real Good Man...

I'm a shocker. I'm way too impatient, emotional and quick to jump in. If I'd only waited 9 more days I wouldn't be sitting here... waiting... hoping... for this Real Good Man to give me Real Good Love.

I enjoyed reading Real Good Man. I have been eyeing Megan March's books for ages. When the plot for Real Good Man caught my attention, I knew that it was the perfect introduction to seeing what's caught all my book-friends' attention.

If you haven't had the pleasure to be introduced to a Real Man, please let me do the honors.

Logan Brantley is a man I would utterly love to have. He is whole, he is sweet, he is caring, he is hot, he's swooney, and holy shit, did I say he's hot?, and oh my he knows how to stake his claim. I loved it, I love him and I can not wait to get more of him.

Yes to that too...

Deliciously and wickedly entertaining!!! If you are a huge Meghan March fan like myself then you are all aware that her signature of strong sexy alpha male heroes have been a staple of her books and in her latest release, Real Good Man, Meghan has hands down deliver one hot, sexy, real good man in Logan Brantley.

No. No. Just no!! I had high hopes for this book, the story sounded very good. Also, the "sexy times" were a bit too "much". I'm not a prude but seriously??!!

Love me some Meghan March's alpha males!! Again, a great addition to her Dirty spin-offs! Logan and Banner are so funny and so hot together!

My FULL REVIEW of the Real Duet will be HERE.

4* let's get dirty STARS!!

I didn't realize somehow this book connected with the other Dirty series. I liked both series and it was okay for me. But this one really won my heart. It feels different because the hero isn't billionaire or rich boys and the heroine is kick-ass enough.

Banner Regent was the queen of one night stand and very wild girl. Very determined, independent and feisty. Insta-love! Banner is really friendly also with her famous dirty jokes. Btw, I thought her names is weird, appar
4,5 stars. It's funny, it's mind blowing hot and it's a rollercoaster. The story of two opposites attract each other, and even if they try they can not do anything to stop it.

About the plot: Banner Regent has a sassy attitude, lack of filter and is the queen of one-night stands as she says about herself alone. She met Logan, when he let her best friend wrote to her via his phone. They started texting to each other and became friends. Completely different worlds and hundreds of kilometers separat

NYC Girl Banner Regent is ballsy, mouthy and funny and she's been texting sexy hot mechanic from Kentucky Logan Brantley. The bed sheets catch fire once they meet if only for a one night stand but when Banner loses her job and her apartment she finds herself moving to a friends house in Kentucky and she and Logan's sex life heats up even more. I love Meghan March's books although I did find this one a little fast into the sex it's always nice to build some tension. But the story line was engagin ...more

Dear Meghan,

Hot Hot Hot

I was dying to read this duet when I knew it was goin to be Banner and Logan. I knew there story was goin to be good an it was well the start of it anyway. This was sexy hot funny there a few crazy woman and some drama so this basically as everything. Logan is very sexy I would kick him out of bed at al. He's a gentleman and caring and I really like the way he is with Banner and he's hot when it comes to the bedroom. Banner is just crazy funny I luv her character the way she is with

Opposites Attract in the best way possible

Banner and Logan didn't meet in conventional way. They began texting before meeting. When Logan gets the opportunity to drive to New Your to meet Banner He isn't going to pass that up.

Can I just say I loved Banner. It's not often I like the female character more than the male character, but I did love her.

Their chemistry was hot, and I can't wait for book two, thank god we don't have to wait long at all.

Loved loved loved!!! I'm a big fan of Meghan March so I was super excited about her new book and to find out it was hunky auto mechanic Logan Brantley from the Dirty Billionaire and Dirty Girl series I was ecstatic!! Logan is a dirty talking alpha with a sweet heart! Banner is awesome as well, she is no blushing virgin for sure and I loved that!

I liked this story. It's was fun, sweet and hot as hell. What made this story great and not amazing was Banner. I liked her just fine but I didn't connect with her. I'm all for a woman who's confident in her sexuality and loves sex but when Banner keeps talking about her one night stands and how wet and creamy Logan makes her it gets tiring pretty fast. I need more depth from a character. Yes, I get to see another side of Banner but it's when I'm over halfway through and then it didn't seem to m ...more

What a great ending......slight cliffy and all! This was my September challenge read from Leslie's all-time favs. Thank you Leslie!

This book was exactly what I needed right now. Lighthearted, funny, sexy....and yes, a "real good man". I loved that Banner was a NYC girl and Logan a downhome Kentucky boy. Their worlds completely different. So when Banner ends up in Kenntucy to that smalltown charm (or should I say smalltown gossip), things get interesting. Banner was a cool chick as far as I'm con
Браво Мегъъъън. Уникална. 5 страхотни ***** от мен. Признавам започнах книгата с резерви. В книгите на Гриър Бенър ми се видя фриволна, малко долнопробна и мислех, че не заслужава бонбончето Логан, но Мегън Марч доказа за пореден път, че е царица на неочакваните обрати. Като се добави и това, че тук авторката не е наблегнала прекалено много на любовните сцени, останах наистина очарована от тази първа част на двулогията. На практика благодарение на това, че Гриър изпраща на Бенър СМС от телефона ...more
