He was convinced he’d be a bachelor for life. And then he met the girl of his dreams.
Jordan Reeves has fully embraced the carefree, uncomplicated bachelor life, figuring that the poor example he’d been provided by his parents of so-called marital bliss was reason enough to remain single. He’s more than content to date one woman after another and never even consider settling down, especially since the only female who’s ever seriously caught his attention belongs to another man.
But during a vacation in Hawaii, Jordan unexpectedly meets a woman who could very easily change his mind about the joys of bachelorhood. Aubrey Larson is young, gorgeous, fun-loving, and has a wicked sense of humor to match his own. She’s also a dead ringer for the woman Jordan’s had an admitted crush on for the past few years, enough to be mistaken for her twin.
Aubrey recognizes the handsome Doctor Reeves as a player of epic proportions the first time they meet, but even her usual disdain for that type of male can’t diminish the overwhelming attraction she feels for him. But as their relationship deepens, Aubrey has no idea that becoming involved with Jordan will lead to a startling discovery about her own past, and cause her to question his true feelings for her.
The Girl Of His Dreams is my first read by author Janet Nissenson. It appears to be a spin off of the Splendor Trilogy, but I do believe it can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.
I thought The Girl Of His Dreams was a fun and entertaining read. I thought Jordan was a really interesting character and loved getting inside of his head. He was your typical young doctor that had the world at his feet. He could have any woman he wanted, yet he couldn’t stop thinking about his married patient, Tessa. So, when he goes off to Maui for a vacation, he’s hoping not just for some fun in the sun, but also to get over his crush. All is going to plan until he meets Aubrey. He is immediately drawn to her and if he didn’t know better, she could be a dead ringer for Tessa. Aubrey is everything that Jordan could possibly want: young, beautiful, smart and most importantly, available. Has Jordan finally met the woman of his dreams?
Overall, I thought this book was an ok read. I enjoyed the pace and the story-line. I liked Jordan and Aubrey together. I thought they matched each other well and had great chemistry….they certainly burned up the pages together. I liked seeing these two interact and grow as a couple. Jordan certainly wasn’t perfect, but you could tell that his feelings for Aubrey were genuine and you couldn’t help but root for him to get his happily ever after.
