Publisher Description

New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake’s heartfelt contemporary romance set in Louisiana's Butterfly Bayou
Roxanne King left the big city looking for a simpler life, but after years of proving herself on a SWAT team in New York City, being deputy in a sleepy Louisiana parish is something of an adjustment. She's settling in, but she knows she made some mistakes in the beginning--Zep Guidry being the worst of them. Zep drifts through life on his looks and Cajun charm. Roxie learned the hard way he's not for her.

Zep is a man who knows what he wants, and what he wants is Roxie. He's just not sure how to get her. They spent one hot night together a year before and now all the lovely deputy seems interested in doing to him is arresting him. He's not used to a woman he can't charm, but Roxie seems immune. He's determined to win her back by any means necessary. Including becoming the kind of man she desires.

And when Roxie's past comes calling, it might be the opportunity Zep needs to show Roxie that the town bad boy might just be the man of her dreams.

Small town love

It's official. I am in love with this town and the people in it. I love how the author has tackled all the quirks you get with a small town. The gossiping where everyone knows every bit of your business, except it may be an alternate version of what really happened. The few town folks that are just plain crazy because let's face it, every town has those people. But most of all, the way a small town comes to gather to support each other. I love it!

Zep was such a flippant character in the previous book. I loved getting to truly know him as a person. He turned out to be one of my favorite "playboy" types of heroes. Roxie was also awesome. She was just tough enough to admire without it being too much. I liked seeing her transformation. She lost a lot of that aloofness from being from a big city and became softer and more approachable person in this small town environment.

Since all this characters are in each book, I've come to love them all and want more. Cain is such an interesting character to me even though he has such a small role in each book. I hope the author brings him front and center for his own. Either way, I will read about as many of these Bayou citizens the author wants to write about.
