Review ~ Her Dakota Man by Lisa Mondello

Everyone knows that the Dakotas didn’t get the name Badlands for nothing. Harsh weather and rough living are a way of life. But single dad, Logan McKinnon, had seen more than his share of bad times after the death of his wife a year ago. The last thing he needs is Poppy Erickson, an old flame and his late wife’s best friend, showing up unannounced to help after devastating floods nearly washed away their hometown. With no place to stay in town, he has no choice but to offer her a bed at his house. But can he live under the same roof with a woman he’d once loved passionately without feeling he’s betraying his late wife?

Poppy Erickson had spent the year wondering how all their lives might have been different after hearing the death bed confession of her childhood friend. She’d left South Dakota years ago because she couldn’t bear to watch the man she loved loving another woman. But now she knows the truth. She’ll keep the promise she made to a friend, but will Logan understand when he learns the truth? More important, can they again recapture the passion that had been between them all those years ago?
Her Dakota Man was touching, sweet, heartwarming, heartbreaking. This book had me hooked from page one, I couldn't put it down. This was Poppy and Logan's Story.

Poppy, Logan and Kelly were best friends growing up. Logan and Poppy had amazing chemistry even when they were young. Poppy' s family had to move away while in High School, Logan and Poppy swore they would work it out. Things happened, misunderstandings and lies caused them from being together. Logan ended up married to Kelly and having a precious little boy. Kelly died from cancer and had asked an favor from Poppy. A year after Kelly's death, Poppy goes to see Logan.

Logan was loyal, caring, charming, a wonderful father, supportive, protective, strong, honest, hardworking and stubborn. Logan was extremely bitter towards Poppy because of how he thought things went down. But he realized that things aren't always what they seem.

Her Dakota Man had me laughing, crying, angry, this was absolutely a wonderful read. I can't say enough good things about this book, I highly recommend.
