Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.
I fell in love with him when I was seven. I scraped my knee, and he helped carry me inside.
Our love story was the talk of the town until a woman told everyone she was pregnant with his baby. The only rational solution was to high tail it out of town and never come back.
My best friend needed a place to hide, and you can’t get much more covert than my family farm, so I came back. For her. It was supposed to be temporary, and I wasn’t supposed to see him, but that’s what happens when you live in a small town where everyone knows each other.
Being the sheriff in a small town was never my dream. My father died and my older brother took off, so I had to be the one to look after my mother. I stayed. I fulfilled my duties as a son and I protected my hometown.
My life wasn’t perfect, but I was content. Until I locked eyes with a ghost from my past, Kallie. I thought it was my imagination, it couldn’t be. I loved her most of my life, but now I hated her.
The town gossip mill was going into overdrive. I kept my head down and my mind off of the woman who shattered my heart when she ran away. She didn’t give me a chance to explain, it didn’t matter to her then. I didn’t matter.
A second chance is never promised, but now that mine is right under my nose, I’m not sure I can take it.
I cry for the boy I Lost, I cry for the love I lost, and I cry for the piece of me I lost.
ARC REVIEW ➼
Southern Chance is a small town romance full of angst, drama and second chances. I devoured this story. I was completely hooked from the very first page.
Kallie and Jacob were childhood sweethearts, they were it for each other and everyone in the town near it from the moment they were in diapers. They had their entire future planned out together. However, one event changed the course of their lives forever. Flash forward eight years and Kallie is back in the town she ran away from and facing her past.
I loved Kallie and Jacob. The sweet start of their relationship, the drama that ensued and seeing each other again after all those years. There was so much chemistry between them, even after eight years and heartbreak. Their story is truly beautiful and emotional. I wasn’t expecting it, but it just came out of nowhere for me. Kallie is strong, smart and slightly stubborn. For everything she did on her own and came out stronger. She took everything in stride. Jacob, I really wanted to hate him in the beginning but he won over my heart and by the end I was completely in love with him.
Southern Chance is one emotional rollercoaster that will have you feeling everything single emotional from the very beginning. A great introduction to an all new series from Natasha Madison and a MUST READ!
