His Southern Temptation (The Boys are Back in Town Series) by Robin Covington
Some women are bad. Some women are a bad idea. The best ones are both...
As a Black Ops assassin, "Lucky" Landon has had more than his fair share of close calls. Now he's turned in his sniper rifle for the simple life of his small hometown. So the last thing he ever expected was to end up at gunpoint. Or that the woman holding the gun would be his best friend's little sister and Lucky's on-again/off-again lover.
Taylor Elliott is Trouble, and she likes it that way. And seeing Lucky again? Well, he's been her dirty little secret for the past few years and everyone knows that secrets in a small town are almost impossible to keep. But Taylor has bigger problems on her plate. Like the local mob boss who wants her dead.
And right now the only thing standing between Trouble and disaster is a hottie named Lucky...
His Southern Temptation
When I turned the last page of this book, the thought that ran through my head was " What a beautiful love story". There's very hot sex, heartbreak, danger , and anger. But the love between these two damaged people pulled me in.
Taylor Elliott is Teague Elliott's sister. We met Teague in the first novel by Ms. Covington. A Night of Southern Comfort. We also met the rest of The Boys, but this is David ( Lucky) Landon's story. Taylor is known best around town for her escape from her own wedding, by the way, in Lucky's car. She worshipped him as a young girl, and he found her a nuisance, but played along. She hasn't been back to town since that fateful day....until now.
Lucky is a former Special Ops. Soldier. The Black Ops he participated in were so deeply secretive, very few people even know his team existed. Now he would like to erase them from his own memory. He's home to take over the family farm, and try and live a normal life. He has been doing some work for his best friend and cousin Jack Cantrell, who is starting a private detective agency.
Taylor and Lucky have been meeting secretly over the last few years when each could manage it. Meeting in various places around the world for a little comfort and love. Seeing Taylor again has convinced Lucky he wants more in his life. His farm and Taylor. Taylor wants a fling, but is definitely leaving town. Lucky just wants her to give him a chance to convince her they are made to be together.
This novel has something for everyone, it's funny, suspenseful, and sizzling hot. I hated it to end, but have hopes for the next bad boy's story! Wonder who it will be?
I received this novel from the publisher for an honest review. no compensation was offered nor taken.(less)
