He was convinced he’d be a bachelor for life. And then he met the girl of his dreams.

Jordan Reeves has fully embraced the carefree, uncomplicated bachelor life, figuring that the poor example he’d been provided by his parents of so-called marital bliss was reason enough to remain single. He’s more than content to date one woman after another and never even consider settlin

What a fun, sexy, romantic, and lighthearted tale! A perfect read to start off the summer reading season, especially since part of the story is set in Maui. I loved the chemistry and flirty banter between Jordan and Aubrey, adored her roommates and his best friends (and can't wait for Finn's and Max's story and wouldn't mind learning more about Melanie, either). And it was a special treat to visit with my favorite romance couple - Tessa and Ian - again in this story. Unlike a couple of other rat ...more

One of the things I love most about books by Janet Nissenson is how sweet her stories are. The Girl of His Dreams was full of swoons, humor, and romantic love.

Jordan was a confirmed bachelor. He hadn't met a relationship that he liked. As a matter of fact, this man had no clue what a relationship was. It didn't help that he was not-so-secretly in love with a woman who was happily married and in love with her husband. Hoping to just 'get over it', he embarks on a vacation to Hawaii to get his gr

The Girl of His Dreams by Janet Nissenson is book One in the Bachelor series. This is the story of Jordan Reeves and Aubrey Larson.

Trying to move forward and clear his mind he goes to Hawaii and happens to catch a glimpse of Aubrey who is on twin like in her looks to the women he thinks he loves.

What a wonderful story!! I loved Jordan aka Dr. Dreamboat when he would appear in the Splendor series, but having his own book, I think i might love him even more than Ian. Jordan and Aubrey's story isn't epic like the Splendor series, but it is no less amazing and wonderful in my opinion. I love the way Janet Nissenson write's her books, they are so descriptive that it plays out like a movie in my mind as I read and the characters are like old friends you haven't seen in a while, but you fall r ...more

Adored this book so much! Both sexy and funny, and with some really touching scenes, too. Aubrey is a great heroine, feisty and confident but also has some insecurities to deal with. I've loved Jordan since he made a brief appearance in Serendipity and then in the Splendor trilogy, and he didn't disappoint. I like stories about reformed rakes and when he met Aubrey he knew she was the one and didn't waste anytime in letting her know. I loved Aubrey's roommates and hope to read more about them at ...more

I honestly cannot remember a time where I’ve thoroughly enjoyed a book as much as this one. I laughed. I cried. I swooned. But this is what Ms. Nissenson’s does with her books. With her characters. You never read them, you live through her words.

Jordan Reeves aka Doctor Dreamboat loves the ladies. And the ladies sure love him. He’s pretty well known for his Bachelor status. And he has no intentions of changing that. That is until he sets his sights on Aubrey Larson during a vacation trip. While

Full review to follow after release date so no spoilers! But another fantastic story, loved Jordan and his two friends Finn and Max, and thought Aubrey was the perfect match for him, definitely earning the title of the girl of his dreams!

As I began to write my review for the second book in this trilogy, I suddenly remembered that I had never updated the review for book one! So before I publish my review for book two, let me quickly update this review.

Always a pleasure to read one of Janet’s creations.

I received a ARC in exchange for a review.

I loved the plot! I won’t give too much away, but I loved, loved the storyline.

Jordan is a a bit of plank at times, at first I wasn’t sure I liked him, but he grew on and also grew up a bit, Aubrey is a spit fire I love her. I think Janet is a genius for adding her back story.

A really good, well written book that I pretty much devoured in one sitting.

Can’t wait for the next bachelor book.

I've never read this author's work before and from the moment I started reading the first words, I was hooked. It's written well and I was connected to each character. Jordan has an infatuation with his client but knows nothing can come of it considering she's in love with her husband. He decides the best way to erase that lust is to go on vacation where he meets Aubrey. From the moment they meet, she's captivated Jordan not only with her looks but also with her personality.

What can I say about Dr. Jordan Reeves, acclaimed ob/gyn, tall, dark and handsome, Super hot! 😍
I have been waiting for this book for months - maybe even years!. I first met Dr. Reeves in Splendor (my all-time favorite book) but only briefly. If you have read Splendor then you know all about Ian ❤ and Tessa. Dr. Reeves is smitten with Tessa and cant seem to let go. While on vacation, he meets Aubrey - a woman who closely resembles Tessa in appearance but has a much stronger level of confidence.

Jordan was a committed bachelor. He was sure the only woman for him was one that was already taken. He decides to try and get over his consuming crush by taking a vacation. He goes off to Hawaii for two weeks. He meets Aubrey and they become inseparable the whole time. I love the chemistry between Jordon and Aubrey. When Jordon invites her to visit him in San Francisco he realizes that he can't live without Aubrey. They have a few issues. The main one being that Aubrey looks just like his crush. ...more

I have read a few books by Janet Nissenson and the common thread I find is that each of the stories are captivating, so much so that once I start reading I find it really hard to put it down. From the first chapter to the last we are gifted with a beautiful story of love and finding the person you are meant to share your life with. This story invoked a lot of emotions including rage a couple of times, but honestly this is a beautiful love story about finding ones true love and overcoming the obs ...more

This is a new author to me, and my word, I cannot wait to read more of her work. Jordan is a committed bachelor, who takes himself away for a few weeks on vacation. When he meets feisty Aubrey, these two become inseparable, but they have several issues to overcome in order to have a relationship. This is a well written story which flows seamlessly, and I was hooked throughout.

Another new author for me and another one that very much didnt disappoint.

So Jordan escapes, and it’s no secret he can attract quite a number of females; after all he is doctor dreamy and has his fair share of admirers. What he didn’t count on was the feisty and gorgeous Aubrey crashing into his life. All seems to be going well until Aubrey believes there’s a reason why Jordan liked her so quickly; a crush from his ...more

I absolutely adore Janet Nissenson and will read anything she writes. So to say I was excited about The Girl of his Dreams would be an understatement. I have been fascinated by Jordan since we meet him in the Splendor series and now we not only get to deep dive into his story but meet Aubrey - who is his match in almost every way.

I loved this story. It was a sweet romance. But it sure did sizzle.
This book is for mature audiences. With that said let's get into it!

The story was great. Jordan our main man is beginning to 'grow up' and re-thinking his bachelor wild ways. And get over a slightly
broken heart. So a trip to Hawaii is on the agenda.

But instead of finding the 2 week romance he is expecting he
finds the perfect woman The Girl Of His Dreams!

I’ve loved all of Janet Nissenson’s books and am thrilled she started a new series. This is the first book in the new series and includes some popular characters from earlier stories. I highly recommend The Girl of His Dreams.

Jordan is a successful doctor and happily confirmed bachelor. He has his choice of women and enjoys sex without any strings attached. Committed relationships or marriage are not for him. When he meets Aubrey, that changes.
She’s beautiful, intelligent and full of life.

Falling for the doppelgänger of the woman you’ve been overtly lusting after-for five years- is not creepy at all. Surely nothing says romantic like knowing the heroine is, at best, no more than the second choice; or worse, a substitute.

Wonderful book! More of a romantic comedy than some of Janet's previous books but every bit as enjoyable!

Loved it! Waited so patiently (not) and no other phrase comes to mind, just.....loved it. I like JNs writing, I've said it before, sometimes you just want a good love story that focuses on the characters.
This is where Nissenson shines.

So, so, so, so looking forward to this! I've been waiting to read (inhale) his story. May seems like a lllloooonnnggg time away.

Right from the first page this book had my attention because it started out with the male POV. Jordan is an OB/GYN and the nurses call him Dr. Dreamboat. I got to say that I can agree with them on that name because he is flirtatious, charming, and sexy. He is single and has a crush on one of his patients who is married. His friends tell him he needs to get a way for a while to try to get over his infatuation and he takes a trip to Maui to do just that. On

Jordan is the hottie doctor that you talk about with your friends, you look forward to your next appointment with him but also don’t look forward to it. On top of that he is an ob/gyno so getting up close to lady bits is what he does every day.

Jordan is used to getting hit on, one thing he will never do is date a patient or anyone he works with. He is in his late 30’s, has never been in a long term relationship and has a very healthy sexual appetite. He is never short of female company because w
