Southern Boys Series by C.A. Harms

Title: Forgiving Reed
Series: Southern Boys #1
Author: C.A. Harms
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance
Published: October 13, 2014
Kori suffered a great loss, one that left her feeling so desolate and alone, that she believed nothing would ever fill the void...

The only thing that kept her going was the one little piece of joy she still had in her life, her baby boy, Rhett.

She had no choice but to move forward and give her son the best life she could. Which meant moving back home. Except there was one problem.

Home was where Reed would be...

The man who once held her heart, then shattered it into a million pieces. Grieving the loss of Rhetts dad, and learning to forgive those who have betrayed her, Kori was battling it all.

But will she ever have the strength to forgive Reed?


Jodie's Review


This is a sweet romance story.... but not without its struggles.... 

Kori is back home and broken after the death of her boyfriend/ baby daddy.... She locks herself and little Rhett away from the world.... Till her best friend Maria drags her out and smack bang in to her past.....

Reed.... was Kori's first love but royally screwed it up but he's no longer that stupid kid anymore.... He is grown and hurting himself.... 

Just maybe these two can heal each other.... 

Their path is an emotional one of many ups and downs as they battle to live again.... But it's also sweet, heart warming and swoon worthy....

I devoured this book in a day it had a way with words which hooked me right in.... and dragged me out of my reading slump.... I couldn't help but love Kori, even through I found her highly annoying at times.... she was grieving so I let her off but her and Reed for me just worked and were meant to be....

Sometimes all I need is a sweet romance after some dark reads and this hit all the spots... I just wished it had a little more dirt in it but over all I loved it and I loved Reed, Kori and Rhett ..... 

I'm excited to jump into to Maria's story next ....

Title: Finding Gavin
Series: Southern Boys #2
Author: C.A. Harms
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance
Published: December 30, 2014
Gavin was a broken hearted cowboy from Savannah...

The one she fell for even though he tried to warn her away.

Maria’s entire life had been one rejection after another, always going after things that were just out of reach.

Gavin was no exception.

She wanted him, so desperately...

But life had a way of making things unattainable, at least for her anyway.

Just when things began to change, once again the darkness glooms, and Maria finds that her happy ending may once again be…

Unreachable.


Jodie's Review 


I loved this book.... it was a rocky road to happiness love story.... which hooked me in and kept me devouring it ......

Gavin is over coming a nasty divorce and is scared to let anyone in.... But Maria is a force you can't really fight...

I already loved these two from forgiving Reed and their story made me love them more.... 

I'm am loving this series so far and can't wait to jump into Loving Colt next....

They are just sweet, heart warming love stories which leave your heart full of happiness .....

Alexis and Colt never planned on crossing paths.

Alexis and her three year old daughter were running from their past and Colt was looking for his future.

And they had no hope of ever being the same again.

Finding a way to make things work, when it feels like everything is against them, is something they will have to work hard to overcome.

Will Colt be strong enough to handle Alexis's past?

Or will it be too much?


Jodie's Review


This book is a sweet, adorable, second chance, love story....

Colt once loved and lost.... and vowed to never love again.... Till he sees Alexis....

Alexis is running from her past..... and comes across Colt.... who may just be the one to show her not all men will hurt you....

I really enjoyed this book and devoured it in one sitting it was a fast paced, easy read.... and the story line was intense, angst and drama filled but I needed more.... I needed more depth and detail to the story.... I just felt like it could of been a raw emotional roller coaster journey....

But overall, I love this book, loved this series....

If your looking for a light, lovable, sweet read.... This series is for you....

Author of the bestselling series, Southern Boys. I live in Central Illinois and have always had a love for books. Writing was something I have also enjoyed for years and until the last couple years it was something I kept to myself. Taking a chance I submitted one of my novels and wahlah, here I am today. Over 15 published books later and still going strong. It is so easy to get lost in the world of fiction. I'm a mother of two, one high schooler and a second grader, I know almost seven years separates the two. What was I thinking? lol With a 7 year old in the house I would say I have developed a liking for the Disney channel, As if I had a choice. It was that or the Channel surfing my husband does. You know just when you find yourself interested in something, BAM, it is changed to a new show. Ugh! So Disney it is, Children's network and all those crazy kid shows... I have a few favorites ;)

button synopsis

When I first met Dominic Snow, he literally saved me from falling. I never dreamed I'd end up working for him. And I certainly didn't plan on falling in love with him. We were an unlikely couple, far from conventional in his social circles, but I always assumed that if we'd made it through those first couple months, nothing could break us apart.
Twenty-one year-old Aleena Davison has it all. A job she loves and that pays well. An amazing, gorgeous man who happens to be rich and everything she could ever want in a lover. She's put up with a lot to keep this life, but what she faces now might be too much. Can she and Dominic get through it, or will their fairy tale come crashing down around them?
Don’t miss Craving HIM, the hot and steamy sequel to Serving HIM.

“I moved to New York from Iowa to find a life that I didn't know I was looking for. I expected to have to work hard and barely make ends meet.

However, it didn’t take long for her dream to turn into a nightmare. Everything from the roommate from hell to her asshole of a boss, contributed to her pain and she’d just about given up. That was…until she ran into devilish handsome, Dominic Snow.

Ultimate Deception (Harden #2) by Lynn Stookes

Title: Ultimate Deception
Series: Harden #2
Author: Lynn Stookes
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance
Coming: September 25, 2015
In a matter of months, Dani Delaney's world drastically changed. Now, she faces the toughest challenge of her life and is determined to handle it on her own.

Detective Sawyer Woods will do anything to be with Dani, the woman he's dreamed about since he first laid eyes on her, but she'll have nothing to do with him, no matter how much charm he uses.

It isn't until Dani receives threatening messages and criminal activites happen around town that she's forced to accept the help of the one man who can bring her to her knees. Can Sawyer protect the one woman who doesn't want him and convince her to give him a shot? Or can one lie destroy it all?

Tristan’s fists clench by his side as he glares at me. “You son of a…”
Meeting his glare, I interrupt without looking away, “Blake, why don’t you have your mom and sisters take the kids inside?”
“Sawyer,” Dani gasps beside me, clutching my shirt.
“It’s okay, sweetheart,” I reply, brushing my lips across her forehead. “It has to happen.”
Lifting my head, I glance in Blake’s direction, urging him to get the kids inside.
“Shit,” I hear Blake mumble under his breath. “Ma, why don’t you and the girls take the kids in the house? The front of the house, okay?”
“Boys,” Mrs. Winters begins, but Mr. Winters interrupts.
“Come on, dear. They have to deal with this their own way,” he says.
“But…”
“Gloria,” he says sternly, but lovingly.
Within a few minutes, the children are inside the house and Blake’s brothers and father are the only ones left to step in if things get out of hand. Duncan and Blake stand closely behind me, while Jamie and Alec stand behind Tristan. Kylie and Harper are to the side, while Dani clings to me. If I wasn’t about to get my ass kicked by her brother, I would enjoy the way she willingly holds onto me in front of our friends who know the truth about how our relationship started.
“Dani, go stand with Kylie and Harper, please,” I say.
“No,” she demands. “You two are not fighting about this.”
“We’re not fighting, right, Tristan?” I say, glancing his way. “We’ll just have a heated discussion.”
Blake lightly pulls Dani away. “Come on, Dani. Let them get it over with.”
She reluctantly walks into Kylie and Harper’s open arms. They embrace her and I return my attention to Tristan. “So, what do you have to say?”
Without warning, Tristan’s fist flies towards my face, connecting with my jaw. I stumble back a few steps, rubbing my hand across my jaw. Fuck. That hurt.
“Is that all you got?” I ask, glaring back at Tristan. The first one I would give him, but anymore and it was fair game.
“Sawyer, man,” Blake speaks from behind me. “Remember don’t taunt the bear.”
“How could you, jackass?” Tristan grits out.
I chuckle. “I didn’t think I’d have to explain the birds and the bees to you, man, but I will if I have to. When a boy gets excited, he gets a happy stick and puts it in a girl’s…”
Tristan tackles me to the ground. He quickly pins me and takes a swing. I manage to dodge it, but the next one comes out of nowhere, catching me on the opposite side of my face from the first punch. With all my strength, I roll him over, pinning him to the ground this time and swing. My fist connects with his nose. At the last second, I pull back some, not hitting him with my full force. I may want to kick his ass, but I don’t want to really hurt my friend. He’s just defending his sister and that’s something I’m eternally grateful for.

Lynn Stookes was born and raised in the amazing state of Texas, where she currently resides with her husband of five years. They have one rambunctious two year old son and three furry children, who create the chaos she couldn’t live without.

One day, Lynn took her passion (maybe obsession is more apt) for romance books and mystery shows and wrote her first romantic suspense novel, Fatal Obsession, Book 1 in the Harden Series.

When Lynn isn’t writing or working her day job, you can find her reading on her Kindle, spending time with her family and friends, or playing on Facebook. She loves running, coffee, and country music in no particular order.

She's currently working on the next book in the Harden Series.
