Publisher's Summary

Just one taste is never enough….

It was meant to be a one-night stand. One night of passion. Scorching-hot. Then Beth Cantrell and Eric Donovan were supposed to go their separate ways. That’s the only reason he lied about his name, telling her he was really his wild younger brother. Hiding his identity as the conservative Donovan. The "good" one.

But passion has its own logic, and Eric finds he can’t forget the sable-haired beauty with whom he shared a night of love. When Beth discovers that Eric has lied, however, she knows he can’t be trusted. Her mind tells her to forget the blue-eyed charmer. If only every fiber of her being didn’t burn to call him back.

A good end to the trilogy

Eric Donovan is very serious, overburdened with responsiblility, and that makes him almost unlikable. In the previous two books in the trilogy, he seems to be almost overbearing. But as his younger siblings grow into their own, he seems adrift. Watching him find himself and love makes this story good. This book also wraps up the underlying storyline from the other two books.
Lauren Fortgang's performance was good and consistent throughout the series.

Entertaining

When I discovered Ms. Dahl I first found her explicit couplings somewhat appalling. I also found that in general most of her stories have a good love story. I really like Bad Boys Do; I wanted to read all in the series. This book was okay. somewhat entertaining.

Hurray for responsible men

I love to see it when those guys that always do the right thing and hold everyone together finally get to enjoy life a bit more. A fun read

50 Shades of Gray Has Nothing on Victoria Dahl

What made the experience of listening to Real Men Will the most enjoyable?

The sex was the hottest of the series while still being believable. We also got to know what makes Eric--the darkest Donovan--tick.

Excellent work!

Victoria Dahl has written an excellent story that combines messy family dynamics, hot steamy times and the fall out from poor communication. Don't want to give any spoilers here but it is well worth the credit. I enjoyed the characters and the way Dahl pulled the story together. She does a great job capturing the kind of zany people that work in the food and beverage industry- she must have waited tables, slung drinks or worked a hotline before.

Ah, Lauren Fortgang! She's excellent(consistently!) and has been able to capture the sensuality in a man's voice( which can be no small trick) and the vulnerability of our very feminine heroine. I wish more literary companies would send my fav books her way- I've had to pan a few this week due to weak narrators.

Not her best work

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No, there are other good books out there to listen to by Victoria Dahl. The story dragged and was depressing and irritating more than uplifting.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The least interesting part was the tension between the two brothers, Eric and Jamie. I didn't really like either one of them. I think they both needed intense therapy.

Could you see Real Men Will being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No, not at all. Not even a Lifetime movie.

Any additional comments?

The narrator does a good job, but in this particular book, it wasn't good enough to hold my interest.

Beth's Orgasmic Ride!

Would you try another book from Victoria Dahl and/or Lauren Fortgang?

Yes, it was uncomplicated and the characters had a voice. There was a background story to explain the main character's motivations and there was enough conflict (sexual of course ) to pull this story together. It is total fantasy ride full of orgasims with a happy ending. I enjoyed the audio from beginning to end.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It was expected. I don't think anyone with half a brain would be surprised by the ending. The intro set up the story and conflict. The rest of the audio just flows from there.

Any additional comments?

A racy diversion...go on... Enjoy yourself!
