Eric Donovan is the quiet brother, the good brother, the responsible brother, but for one night he was not any of those things. That was of course six months ago. He had not stopped thinking about her but it was all moot. She did not know his real name.
Beth Cantrell was not used to unbelievable sex, a one night stand, but that is what she got. Of course it was six months ago but she couldn’t stop thinking about Jamie Donovan. That is until she found out the man she slept with was not who he said he was. No the man she slept with was Eric Donovan. Beth felt betrayed but she knew she couldn’t resist him. She would give Eric her body but not her trust.
Real Men Will is the end of the trilogy of the Donovan Brothers Brewery, which I loved. This book appeared moodier due to the main character Eric but nevertheless it was good. I liked how Victoria Dahl uncovered why Eric truly felt responsible for everything.
Both characters, Eric and Beth, hid behind their masks that they displayed for the world. I liked that they were real with each other eventually when they learned to trust. Eric I grew to like even though he was an ass through parts of the book as he was relentless with what he thought was right.
With Beth as a character she was a strong one. I felt like cheering her on as she had to rise above her past and move on. Dahl did not make it easy either with Beth forgiving Eric which I liked as he lied about his name.
I liked how Dahl also kept Kendall within the trilogy. It was interesting with how each character was involved with Kendall and effected aside from the business aspect.
Overall the series Donovan Brothers Brewery was one to read from Victoria Dahl and one to enjoy.
