Southern Playboy by Jessica Peterson is now live!
Hiring the woman who wrecked me to nanny the kid I just found out I have is a dumb idea. Getting naked with her in the back of my truck is even dumber.
But old habits die hard.
Amelia Fox was my high school sweetheart, the girl who broke my heart and nearly ended my football career a decade ago. It was all I could do to put one foot in front of the other, much less make a comeback.
But I did come back. And I'm not about to let go of everything I fought for just because my world is imploding again.
When I find out I'm the father of a two-year-old boy, I'm ready to start my final season in the pros. It's my last chance to nab the championship I promised my dad I'd win before he died.
Enter Amelia: teacher, toddler whisperer, and--oh yeah--my ex-girlfriend. We haven't spoken in ten years, but I'm desperate, and she's looking for a job.
I need to focus, which means I need help with this kid. Which means I need her.
The arrangement works until one night of bad decisions and great sex threatens to ruin everything.
Can we make it work this time around?
Or is she just another bad habit I need to break before she breaks me?

Review Copy Provided by Author
In Southern Playboy, Ms Peterson takes us back to Blue Mountain and the Beauregard family. This time, we are spending time with youngest brother, Rhett.
We’ve seen Rhett is supporting roles before, but this is the first time we really get to know him and peek behind the playboy/professional athlete curtain.
Rhett is an interesting character. He starts off as someone I wasn’t sure I liked, a definite playboy using drinking and other activities to mask how he was really feeling. I appreciated how Ms Peterson shook his life up and gave him the opportunity to evolve and see what mattered. Add in some timely older brothers advice and Rhett ended up being someone I was rooting for.
Amelia, Rhett’s ex girlfriend/nanny/love interest is at her own crossroads early on in the story. I liked Amelia and felt like she was dealt a pretty raw deal early on, so I definitely found her sympathetic. I enjoyed watching her figure out where she fits and what she wants in her life going forward.
The set up of Southern Playboy is unique and I enjoyed this particular spin on the second chance/secret baby tropes. This is the 4th book in the series and the larger Beauregard family appears frequently as secondary characters, but I would say that this stands well on its own. I would recommend reading at least some of the previous books first though as the back stories would make this sequential timeline story that much more interesting.
