REVIEW ➞ Southern Heart by Natasha Madison


Some secrets have a way of coming back and haunting us, no matter how much we try to bury them.

Coming back home was supposed to be normal.
Not that my life had ever been normal, but it was getting there.
Then I opened the door and found a man—broken, bloodied, and fighting for his life.
I don’t know why, but I said I would take care of him. I had to. Needed to.
He was a mystery, showing up from out of nowhere. But he might have already stolen my heart.

Mayson Carey
The only thing I have ever wanted in my entire life was to forget who I was. Joining the military helped me do this.
Keep your head down and glide through life was my new motto. No strings, no relationships. Nothing.
Everything was working until a knock at the door had me face-to-face with the reason I was running.
So I ran—I fell into her arms, and she fell into my heart, but I know better than to think it’ll last.
Some secrets have a way of coming back and haunting us, no matter how much we try to bury them.

“I’m going to make you see the beauty in it.”

“In what?”

“In the colors of the sunrise.”


Small town, suspense and steam. From page one I was completely sucked into this story and couldn’t put it down.

Chelsea just completed school and is a nurse when she returns back home. What she doesn’t expect is to use those skills so soon, but when he brother’s friend Mayson turns up horribly injured on his doorstep she has no choice but to help. Mayson’s childhood is heartbreaking, but he escapes that life and fights overseas…until his past he thought was long gone catches up with him.

Chelsea and Mayson aren’t strangers, however, prior to that night, they never really interacted. There is chemistry between these two and it is intense and filled with passion. I loved that Chelsea stood up and admitted how she felt to Mayson. I loved that she helped him and became a sense of support for him.

If you’re looking for a small town romance with suspense mixed in this is one to read!
