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...

Suddenly wanting a chance with his one-night stand 11 years ago – with only memories of hot sex driving him – after a shipwreck that supposedly made him reevaluate his priorities, Logan McCabe decides to look up a woman with whom he has had no contact ever since that day to replay his fantasies about her in technicolour. It’s as far as the plan goes.

That, in itself, made very little sense to me (there’s the assumption that nothing has changed in the intervening years and of course, sexual chemistry would be as hot as always) and the straight plunge into sex the moment he finds Abigail Parker made me wonder if this was one of those “plots” in porn videos that existed just so that characters could hurry onto the bedroom action. The story gets a little more grounded when Logan discovers that he is in fact, saddled with a daughter.

But for lust to turn to love when him and Abby have nothing in common…? Then again, if this is erotica, then the believability of the narrative really isn’t the point here, even if there’s really nothing wrong with the writing itself.
