Real Men Will by Victoria Dahl

USA TODAY bestselling author Victoria Dahl proves some second chances are too tempting to resist in this sexy reader-favorite story full of secrets and sin…

It was meant to be a one-night stand. A single night of passion. Scorching hot. Then Beth Cantrell and Eric Donovan were supposed to go their separate ways. That's the only reason Eric let her think 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 curvy beauty with whom he shared a night of lust. When Beth discovers that Eric lied, however, she knows he can't be trusted. Her mind tells her to forget the intense stranger who brought her so much pleasure. If only every fiber of her being didn't burn to call him back.

Book 3 of Donovan Brothers.

A sexy contemporary romance and includes bonus teaser novella “Just One Taste,” featuring Beth and Eric's delicious—and disastrous—first meeting!

OH. MY. GOD. Victoria Dahl you are my new contemporary genre goddess. Eric Donovan became a father figure and brewery owner at 24 years old due to the death of his parents. He's had to deal with bad boy brother Jamie's constant screw ups and sheltering sweet baby sister Tessa all the while running a brewery on his own. Taking on these responsibilities at such a young age had finally taken its toll and begins to make Eric question who he really is. His siblings no longer need him, they're in steady relationships and had grown into their responsibilities at the brewery. Beth Cantrell is the owner of The White Orchid, an upscale lingerie and sex toys boutique. For the past six months, all she can think about is Jamie Donovan and the things he did to her with his mouth, his hands and other parts of his body. Sure, she's been with other guys since then but, Jamie keeps creeping back into her thoughts. A night out at Donovan's brings her face to face with the man she can't seem to forget, although leaves her a little confused because a different Jamie Donovan is pointed out to her. Well, turns out Jamie Donovan isn't the man Beth met at the conference six months ago but Eric, the older, uptight brother. Between Eric's lying, her strained relationship with her father due to a mistake from the past and anxiously waiting for the return of her friend and owner of The White Orchid, Beth must figure out who she is and what she wants. Eric knows he lied to Beth about his name but he swears that's the only thing he lied about. Not really a good way to start to gain her trust. Their physical relationship is scorching hot! I was waiting for my Kindle to start melting in my hands. Beth's big reveal of her secret shocked me and her inner turmoil of whether to tell her father what she really does for a living or not, had me chanting under my breath--'Do it. Do it. Do it.' Of course, I chanted that as well right before Eric and Beth got touchy feely. Each book in the Donovan Brothers Brewery trilogy has gotten hotter and hotter. Tessa's (GOOD GIRLS DON'T) was hot, Jamie's (BAD BOYS DO) was hotter, and Eric's (REAL MEN WILL) was a complete scorcher. I had to put it down several times to fan myself and run out on the balcony since the weather has cooled down a bit. My cheeks were flushed, I may have gripped my Kindle to the point of almost breaking it, twice and I sobbed like a baby at the heart to hearts, of which I will not divulge. Also, I may have screamed "Sarsaparilla!" a few times while reading this book. I swear, you need a safe word or something when indulging in a Victoria Dahl book. I mean it's a good thing. The smexing was hel-lo! A perfect ending to a five hearts trilogy (I rated each book with 5 purple hearts.) Now I'm itching for more V.Dahl books. *sigh* ***review copy provided by NetGalley***

Redonk Nutshell: Upstanding older brother gets in over his head with a woman he can't seem to shake from his past I love it when a series comes to a conclusion with an epic BANG! And in this case it's safe to say that in a raunchy way because this book has some serious smoke. The third book in Dah'ls Donovan Brother's Brewery series gives us Eric's story. Poor Eric. He's gotten a lot of crap from his younger siblings in the first two books. He's the eldest, the brother that kept (and continues to keep) things running somewhat smoothly. He assumes the parental role when their parents tragically die, a role Eric carries with heavy burden. While his sister and brother flail and falter their way to finding true contentment, Eric stands stoically by and offers his support in a way only an older brother can. Well, it's always the quiet ones you gotta watch. *snort* Eric can't seem to shake the memory of the woman from his one night stand several months ago. "One night stand," you say? "Eric?" Yup. Well, he's met his match in Beth, the quiet yet independent woman who runs the classy erotic adult boutique in his hometown. When these two inadvertently crash into one another the sparks start flying once again, and they gradually give in to the temptation to have another night together. When one night turns into two, they realize their attraction to one another can't be ignored. But in order to make their relationship work, they both have their own issues to work through. This is my favorite in the Donovan series, which is funny because I wasn't a big Eric fan until this book. Beth is a wonderful watch for him, and the crazy-intense sparks that fly between them will really make you grin and blush. You want nothing more than for these two to figure out their baggage so they can just quit the crap and be together. And when they do get together? Ah, yes. It's magical. I consumed this book in a day. It's a lovely fluffy yet steamy read. I could have done without the drama of Eric's siblings (can someone just smack Tessa? Please?), but Eric and Beth rise above it to shine as the stars of this book. Real Men Will by Victoria Dahl, 10/25/11 Rating: B- Romance: 2/5 Raunch: 4.5/5

This one made me cry. Victoria Dahl really understands what it is to be out of place. I loved Eric, Beth seemed alittle underdeveoped to me. Great story. Yes Jamie was angry, but I think it fit the situation. Read these in order.

I liked all 3 of these and I agree, Eric wasn't the most likable until you got to know him.
