Logan has been in love with Meredith for as long as he can remember. Seeing her with another had been its own brand of torture, but now that she’s free, nothing can stop him from claiming what is rightfully his.
The magnetism of Logan has never been lost on Meredith, but crossing the line between friend and lover scares her, even after dumping her slimeball ex. When Logan kisses her, an attraction like she’s never known ignites, sweeping her into an affair she can’t walk away from.
As Logan fights to win her heart, Meredith wages a battle of her own. Is she willing to admit her interest stretches way beyond merely doing Logan?
Doing Logan is a short but hot story of second chances at love, and friends turning lovers.
Can real life live up to twenty years of fantasy and desire? This is the question Logan Foster plans to learn the answer to. For over twenty years, his heart has belonged to Meredith, but they have never crossed the line from friends to lovers. One of Logan’s biggest regrets was introducing Meredith to her former husband, Dirk. But now, Meredith is free, and Logan is determined to show Meredith how he feels about her, once and for all.
Things come to a head when they are at a dinner party, and the host has neglected to tell his wife that he invited Dirk and his brand new trophy wife to the evening. Dirk gets nasty, and Logan comes to Meredith’s side to offer support, but she hadnles things quite well on her own.
Can Logan convince Meredith of his feelings? Can Meredith accept what Logan offers, and learn to love again? Will these two forge a happy ever after that Meredith never got with Dirk?
This story has a touch of humor, and Rhian Cahill has crafted characters you want to cheer for. There is a glimpse into what Meredith had been through, very briefly seen, in what wife number two for Dirk is now experiencing.
Meredith is a strong and classy lady. She is determined to move on with her life after divorcing her unfaithful spouse. At the confrontation at the party, she takes the higher ground, and gains the respect of all those in attendance. She has always felt warmth toward Logan, but never realized the depth of his feelings for her before now.
Logan has regrets about chances missed with Meredith. He is strong and loyal, and and wants Meredith to realize she needs to accept him in her life. I enjoyed watching their love unfold, and each experience that they had was brand new to them. I liked that Logan was willing to risk his heart, with no demands on Meredith other than for her to accept what he freely offered.
Ms. Cahill puts these two in lots of steamy scenes all over the town, but the action is never more than he characters are ready for. I enjoyed watching Barbie discover what kind of man she got in Meredith’s ex, and I had to laugh at encounter at the restaurant, when Barbie realizes what’s happening, both with Dirk the jerk, and with Logan and Meredith. If you want a short but scorching hot story, this one is definitely for you. But be sure to bring the ice water, you will need it.
