HER DAKOTA MAN - book 1 of Dakota Hearts

Everyone knows that the Dakotas didn’t get the name Badlands for nothing. Harsh weather and rough living are a way of life. But single dad, Logan McKinnon, had seen more than his share of bad times after the death of his wife a year ago. The last thing he needs is Poppy Erickson, an old flame and his late wife’s best friend, showing up unannounced to help after devastating floods nearly washed away their hometown. With no place to stay in town, he has no choice but to offer her a bed at his house. But can he live under the same roof with a woman he’d once loved passionately without feeling he’s betraying his late wife?

Poppy Erickson had spent the year wondering how all their lives might have been different after hearing the death bed confession of her childhood friend. She’d left South Dakota years ago because she couldn’t bear to watch the man she loved loving another woman. But now she knows the truth. She’ll keep the promise she made to a friend, but will Logan understand when he learns the truth? More important, can they again recapture the passion that had been between them all those years ago?

    Her Dakota Man By Lisa Mondello Dakota Hearts Series Book 1 Popp

    Her Dakota Man By Lisa Mondello
    Dakota Hearts Series Book 1
    Poppy Ericksen left everything she had ever known when her parents moved the family from Rudolph, South Dakota to New York. She also left her friends and her heart. A heart that splintered into a million pieces when the man she loved married her best friend instead of coming for her as promised. Ten years later she returns to make sure he knows the truth of their past. And hoping that somehow she can still have a future with him.

    Logan McKinnon has been angry at Poppy for ten years. First for moving on without him and then for pulling her friendship away. She didn't even come to Kelly's funeral. His wife and her best friend. But what is worse is that he realizes that ten years apart did nothing to erase what he feels for her. And that only adds to the guilt he has been carrying for so long.

    The first of the McKinnon stories brings the reader to a small town that has been devastated by a storm. Two people have to face a past that has been shrouded in lies. We get to meet Logan's twin brother Ethan and his brother Hawk. Their stories are yet to come. I loved the story and the characters. It tugged on my emotions both with humor and a few teary moments. Looking forward to the next three books in this series.

    Good writing, but not the book for me

    Poppy, Kelly, and Logan had once been inseparable, but that was a lifetime ago. Poppy made a life for herself in New York, and Kelly and Logan made a life for themselves together, contrary to everything Poppy and Logan had planned when they were young and in love. A year has passed since Kelly died, and Poppy 's returned to South Dakota, to the home Logan once shared with Kelly, to make things right again. But Logan doesn 't know what Poppy knows about his marriage, and he wants nothing more than for Poppy to leave, just like she did before, and never look back.

    The Verdict: Ugh. I had such high hopes for this one, but it just didn 't pan out for me. But I think that 's more a reflection of me than it is of the writing. The chemistry between Poppy and Logan was great, and I was even okay with all that anger he harbored over her leaving so many years ago — or rather over her staying gone. But as their past was revealed and the truth came out about his marriage to Kelly, I just began to lose interest.

    Poppy and Logan had been in love, determined to make a go of it even after her parents moved her to New York, and Kelly — the quiet, sweet best friend — turned out to be a scheming, manipulative liar. I get that teenage girls who think they 're in love can do and say some pretty awful things, but to pull what she did? Unforgivable. It made the story something I just didn 't want to read about, which sucks, since the writing was pretty great.

    Anyhow, I 'm guessing most people who love romance novels will also love this one. I guess maybe I was just looking for and expecting something different, and the back-story put a different shine on things than what I normally enjoy. I think I might keep on with the series, though. Like I said, the writing was good, so here 's hoping that the next books are more my cup of tea.
