He's Got Something She Wants

In Summers's charming third Harmony Homecomings contemporary (after Not So New in Town), intrepid film location scout Katie McKnight and stymied military thriller author Vance Kerner meet cute when she approaches him about the possibility of her father's studio using his North Carolina property. Katie's job security hinges on her discovering the perfect location for her controlling father. After brief identity confusion during their first encounter, she negotiates an exchange of her child-wrangling skills with Vance's sister's kids, who are temporarily in his care, for Vance's promise to consider the studio's offer. Vance is struggling with both writer's block and his continued desire for approval for his work from his own semi-estranged father, a retired Army general. Summers excels at detailing Katie and Vance's immediate attraction and steamy flirtation, including dubbing each other "Pirate Man" and "California Cupcake." Detailed interactions with their friends and family help to build them as fully realized characters.

What an amazingly wonderful instant love at first sight love❤️ story. Although both main characters had some major growing/changing they needed to do before they could settle down and be not only happy with themselves, but each other. I absolutely enjoyed reading their journey along the way! It was not only my first Michele Summers book, but my first Harmony Homecoming book and although this is book #3, I didn't feel lost while reading it. Each story could be tag as a standalone novel, I do however look forward to reading not only the first two books that are already published... Find My Way Home (Book One: Harmony Homecomings Series) ~ Bertie and Keith's story, Not So New In Town (Book Two: Harmony Homecomings Series) ~ Lucy and Brogan's story, and Sweet Southern Trouble (Book Four: Harmony Homecomings Series) that's due out May 2017! Not only is this an exciting series, but an author I plan to follow to see what she comes out with besides this series, awesome job!

Fun and Hot Romance
If you need a fun and steamy romance to escape for a little while, then "Sweet Southern Bad Boy" is for you. This book was so much fun! Katie and Vance are so great together. I was hooked from the beginning to the end.
"Sweet Southern Bad Boy" by Michele Summers is book number three in the "Harmony Homecomings" series. This is Katie McKnight and bestselling author Vance Kerner's story.
Vance is on a deadline to complete a novel and he has writer's block. Well, in his defense he has taken responsibility to care for his brother's three kids while deployed and their mother is recovering from an injury. Saying his brother's three kids are very energetic children is an understatement.
Katie is out to prove to her father that she is not a loser. She wants to find the perfect location for her dad's miniseries. Katie decides that Vance's home is the perfect spot for this miniseries but Vance is not on board.
Katie needs Vance to agree to using his home for her dad's mini series and Vance needs help with the kids so that he can attempt to meet the deadline on his novel. Not to mention that they both have family issues that are not resolved. Then to top it off the sexual tension between them is off the charts. So, how will they deal with this situation?
Vance and Katie's story was a blast to read. It was so much fun to read and a great stress reliever. A fantastic funny, hot, and heartfelt story.
FYI, includes mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Sweet with that all important sexy
Katie McKnight wants to show her family that she has what it takes to make it. Treated like an inferior her entire life, nothing she does makes them happy. This is her last shot to make it work and she must convince a bestselling author, Vance Kerner, to let a TV studio use his historic home for a new show.
Mistaken as the nanny, Katie finds herself helping Vance out of bind with his young nephews and niece. Whiling to do just about anything, Katie agrees to continue helping Vance if he will just sign the paperwork to make things right with her family.
Vance just wants to convince Katie to stay with him forever while her father, mother and ex-fiancée only care about controlling Kaite.
Sweet Southern Bad Boy is a double barrel loaded with sexual tension, just waiting to explode all over Vance’s and Katie’s lives.
Sweet with that all important sexy, Sweet Southern Bad Boy brings home town charm to the pages.
