★ SYNOPSIS ★
When fantasy and reality collide…
There’s nothing like a near death experience to make a guy reassess his life. And that’s exactly what nightclub owner Logan McCabe decides to do, starting with looking up the girl he spent one wild night with eleven years ago, right before his life turned to crap. He spent a year fantasizing about her. Now he’s ready to see how reality matches up.
Abigail Parker is a perfectionist. She’s only strayed from the straight and narrow once in her life, on her eighteenth birthday. It was supposed to be one wild night with a totally unsuitable man before she settled into her sensible future. Instead it changed her life forever.
Logan might still be the sexiest man Abigail has ever seen, but a dirty-talking, tattooed, ex-con is the last thing she needs in her perfect life. He claims she’s his fantasy girl, but what he doesn’t know is she’s also the mother of his ten-year old daughter…

★ MY REVIEW ★
His Fantasy Girl is a standalone novel by author Nina Croft. It is written in alternating third person from the main characters point-of-views. It has an HEA and no cliffhanger. Don’t let my rating on this book fool you, I did enjoy it. As much as I did enjoy it though, it was middle of the road for me.
I have to admit that I was hugely confused with this book at first. I thought I was possibly reading the wrong thing. Reading the synopsis for it you’ll have conflicting information depending on where you get it. Mainly it comes down to the heroine’s name. One place you’re told it is Imogen, another you’re told it’s Abigail. Well, it ends up being Abigail in the book, and is shortened to Abby.
Aside from that issue, the book was well written and I’m not about to hold a synopsis against an author. This book is a story line/Trope that I hadn’t read before. I typically avoid books with ex-cons in them but this His Fantasy Girl just jumped out at me. Plus when you find out the reasoning for why Logan even went to jail it makes it completely different, or at least it did for me.
Abby has moved on with her life. The only time she thinks about Logan is when she looks at her daughter. She also might secretly still considering her night with him, the best of her life. Too bad he was arrested the next morning. Abby has a job she loves, is working toward promotion, takes care of her daughter and doesn’t seem to have any issues or hangups.
Logan, on the other hand, has thought about Abby for years. In fact, for a year straight, he dreamed of her every single night. She was what got him through it all. He never sought her out after getting out of jail, but was more focused on picking up the pieces. So years later, he’s still thinking about her and a brush with death forges a pack between three men (Logan’s Buddies) to check up on the woman from their pasts.
Logan wasn’t expecting to still be attracted to Abby. Abby has a career to protect and a daughter to look out for, but she’s still just as attracted to Logan. The spark between them in insane! These two struggle with circumstances around them and have to figure out how to make things work, if they even will work now.
Overall, as I stated before, I really enjoyed this book, so don’t let the rating confuse you. I would highly recommend it, especially if you like Nina Croft books (I do!) and if you want to read a different twist on a second chance romance trope.
