Some secrets have a way of coming back and haunting us, no matter how much we try to bury them.
Never make the same mistake twice is my motto.
After being left in the dust of an old pickup truck, I promised that I would take care of myself
and never trust another man with a sexy smirk and cowboy boots.
Then he showed up, and he's everywhere I turn, making me want something I shouldn't.
I grew up in foster care, and on my eighteenth birthday, I was set free.
I spent years coasting from town to town.
Staying wasn't a part of my plan and neither was love, but somehow, I found both.
This was all supposed to be temporary.
I'm just hoping my secret doesn't destroy the only family I've ever known.
Buried secrets are never buried for long.

Asher has lead a hard life, and Amelia and her family, being the fantastic family they are, treat him with kindness and give him something he has been short on all of his life...hope.

Great story and characters!
This series keeps getting better and better!
This series keeps getting better and better! I love that Natasha can continue this series with the next generation, and the intertwining of the characters makes this book extra special for me because I love getting updates of sorts from past characters and couples. Asher has come to town and after having nothing in life, he still refuses to take or be gifted anything even after being in town and building friendships while also working with the group. But when the barn he is living in is torched on fire, everything changes. Amelia has always been attracted to Asher, but he’s so closed off she questions if there would ever be a future with him. Traumatized from her past relationship, she is determined to never be dependent on anyone in her life. This story has some crazy twists I never saw coming, but it totally takes the book to the next level! I can’t get enough of this series and Natasha’s writing, and I continue to be obsessed with her stories! I am so excited to see who’s next in this series!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
I’ve loved every book in this series so far and they just keep getting better and better. The secrets continue with Southern Secrets (Southern #7) and my goodness, they’re mind blowing. Asher and Amelia’s story is outstanding, it’s well written, thrilling and it has a perfect blend of heat, romance, action, intrigue and mystery. One of the things that I love the most about this book and the series is although they’re intense, angsty and emotional moments, the storyline and characters have a down to earth feel. I also love the camaraderie and bond amongst the families.
Amelia has been burned before and she’s not 100% trusting of men. However, her undeniable attraction and connection to her friend Asher, allows her to slowly let her guard down. Asher is definitely into Amelia and much as he likes her and wants her, he’s only staying in town for a short period of time. He’s harboring a deep secret that could potentially destroy Amelia’s family. Ms. Madison does an excellent job with the plot twists as the web of secrets that are weaved are shocking. I never in a million years would’ve anticipated Asher’s secret. So far, Southern Secrets is definitely my favorite book is the series and it’s a must read for sure.
