Southern SInner ~ Jessica Peterson ~ New Release & Review


Southern Sinner by Jessica Peterson is now live!


What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Until I brought my fake girlfriend home.

When I took a seat next to the gorgeous brunette at the blackjack table, I had no idea it would be the start of the hottest weekend of my life. By day, Stevie and I dominate the casinos of Sin City.

By night, I dominate her in my penthouse suite.

Then my brother Samuel ruins it by asking me to come home for his engagement party.

Because he’s not just getting married. This isn’t a normal celebration for me. His future bride is my ‘one who got away.’ The girl I may or may not still be in love with.

The catch? He wants me to prove I’m over his fiancée before they set a date. So I ask Stevie to double down on our chemistry and pretend to be my girlfriend.

We set our ground rules: lots of sex, plenty of pretend smiles, and no strings.

But we’re not only gambling with the truth. We’re gambling with our hearts.

They say every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future. But Stevie’s past may force us to fold on our future before it’s even begun.

SOUTHERN SINNER is a full-length, standalone novel in the North Carolina Highlands Series. Coming April 22 to KindleUnlimited!

Elizabeth's Review

My rating: 4 of 5 stars - Would Recommend to a Friend

Review Copy Provided by Author

I am a fan of Ms Peterson's and her series set in the Carolinas. Between her swoony heros, strong leading ladies, and the sense of family/community that runs through the stories, these books are winners. That said, I was a little nervous going into Southern Sinner.

Hank is the 3rd of the Beaurgaurd brothers and we've seen him a secondary character in the first two books. He didn't make the best impression in book 2 and I just wasn't sure how I felt about him as a character even at the beginning of his own book. I was impressed with how Ms Perterson took his previous behavior and managed to not only explain his actions, but to redeem him so that Hank became a character that I liked and found myself rooting for.

Stevie is Hank's leading lady and I liked her from the very beginning. She is a unigue character with an emotional history that actually makes her perfect for Hank. Watching these two together was sweet and spicey.

Add in the entertaining secondary cast of Hank's family, a "the writting is on the wall" scenario and this became a book I couldn't put down as things played out. Ms Peterson did an excellent job of addressing several emotional issues between the backgrounds of both Hank and Stevie. These are characters that I am very curious to see how their long term future plays out. I hope we see more of them in the remaining books for this series.
