The love of her life isn’t the man she expects but he just might be the man she never saw coming.
Cass Jensen writes hot books and likes her life as an author. She’s got the material things she desires, good friends and a side career singing with the band. What more could she ask for? A sexy man to warm her bed during the chilly Ohio nights—that’s what she wants. Someone to make her blood sizzle and her heart race. She heads to California to help cast the movie being made from one of her books. She’s not interested in dating another actor, but what if the man she needs is on the other side of the audition table?
Logan Malone is known as one of the biggest playboys in all of Hollywood. He’s rumored to be dating half the single ladies in town and romancing the other half. There’s only one problem—Logan doesn’t want to be the player any longer. He wants a strong career and an even stronger woman in his life. When he meets Cass, he knows she’s the one he’s been looking for. But Cass comes with her own complications. Can he handle being her man or will the glare of the media be too much for them to handle as a couple?
He’s about to find out just how hard he’ll have to work in order to be her man, but he’s up for the job…
In Her Man, we get the story of Cass and Logan. Cass is a successful romance writer that has been lucky enough to have some of her books into movies. She has a lot to be happy for. She has all the things she could want, great friends and spend her time doing what she enjoys, including singing with a local band when she can. She is generally happy, but is missing the love of a man.
Not that she needs a man, but it’s nice to have that partner to share your life with. However, her first experience with love left her scarred, damaged and very hurt. It took her a long time to get herself to a place she wanted to be and felt like she belonged.
Logan on the other hand has lived the typical life of Hollywood playboy. An actor who is used to getting what HE wants, and WHO he wants, WHEN he wants. But a few bad decisions and he finds himself a bit lost. Now in his early thirties, he realizes something needs to give.
So begins the story of Logan and Cass. Cass was so hurt by love once, she cannot open her heart and risk losing it again. Logan has never cared enough, but suddenly realizes he is missing out on so much. Can these two find what they are looking for? Are they the right person for each other or just another bad choice?
This is a hard one for me to review. After reading the blurb, I was so intrigued by this story. I love Hollywood star falls for the average person. Who does not dream of this happening at least once in their life? But as soon as I started this, I felt like I was jumping right into the middle of a story and as I continued to read, it did not go away. I felt like I was missing part of the backstory and never felt as if I caught up.
I did feel there was a great story there and if we were given the time to really get to know the characters, this had the potential to be an amazing story. But because of the feeling of jumping into the the middle and rushing the overall story, it just did not resonate with me and was a bit disappointed. It did have its moments and I would definitely read something else by this author in the future.
I give Her Man by Wendi Zwaduk 2.5 stars
