I loved this romance and it was so hot, more than I expected from a Entangled book. I was really fascinated with Robin way of writing and fell in love with Mick and Piper.

Piper is just the girl next door and I loved how wild she became with Mick. She fell in love with the bad boy and discovered a nice guy. Mick is such a nice guy, but in Hollywood life is really different and now we can see he was betrayed more than once.

This was more than just a romance and I liked how people can really relate to Piper, she’s just a sweetheart and had her heart broken once by another actor, but the sparks were so big that she couldn’t let it go.

So they had more than just one night stand and the relationship evolved, but Piper didn’t wanted something more and I liked how Mick started the changes. But not everything was perfect and the paparazzi were not so great.

But I really enjoyed these two together and how much Mick fought for his love.


Romance Review: His Southern Temptation by Robin Covington

His Southern Temptation (The Boys are Back in Town, #2)

Some women are bad. Some women are a bad idea. The best ones are both…
A former Black Ops assassin, “Lucky” Landon has had more near-misses than a man should ever have. Now he’s out of that business and settling into the simple life in his small hometown. So the last thing he ever expected was to end up at gunpoint. Or that the woman holding the gun would be his best friend’s little sister and Lucky’s on-again/off-again lover.
Taylor Elliott is Trouble, and she likes it that way. And seeing Lucky again? Well, he’s been her dirty little secret for the past few years and everyone knows that secrets in a small town are almost impossible to keep. But Taylor has bigger problems on her plate. Like the local mob boss who wants her dead.
And right now the only thing standing between Trouble and disaster is a hottie named Lucky…

This is actually the second book in the series, but I found it okay to read without reading the first one. The story is not really related, but the boys are present in this story, plus we see a bit of the couple from the first book and it’s explained a bit about their relationship, nothing to extensive.
Lucky is actually a really nice guy and I liked the way he decided to change his life and enjoy more the country life after fighting in war and being a marine, but is definitely a change that he welcomed. His family is having some problems with money and he can help, so it’s nothing surreal for him to return home, but the best parrt is meeting Taylor again. He’s kinda in love with her for awhile, but their realtionship never worked and they are better as friends with benefits since Lucky is best friends with her brother.
I liked Taylor and completely understood her reasons for fighting and breaking chains. Her family is a bit too much and she just wanted freedom and being herself. But she’s so good with Lucky, plus she’s had a crush on him since forever.
I liked these two as a couple and she’s very adventurous so that makes her perfect for Lucky. Really nice book and I’ll read the first one very soon.
