Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.
Kallie 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.
Jacob 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.
Reading has been been such a struggle lately because of everything that’s been happening in the world. But I guess I was in the mood for something absolutely heart-wrenching and that was Southern Chance. A second chance romance in a new series by Natasha Madison. If you know me, I love a good second chance romance.
Wow, what an emotional ride that Natasha took us on with Kallie and Jacob’s story. And I was here for it and my goodness, I couldn’t stop crying.
SO, as much as I was living for the emotion angst, there’s a few people that I couldn’t quite forgive. And one of them being Jacob, granted everything happened to them while they were so young. He did not have his priorities straight, that’s for sure. And that’s all I’ll touch on with that subject.
These two have so much to work through when it comes to their past and the truths just don’t stop coming. So why the 3.5 rating? Once things get sorted between them, there’s a bit of a time jump and some stuff that you won’t get answers to until the next book. It almost felt out of place for me and maybe not necessary. And I think I just wanted more time with them finding their footing again because it’s been several years apart. They’re not teenagers anymore.
I’m definitely looking forward to the next book in this series, I’m a little unsure about book 3. But maybe by the time it releases, I will have cooled off about certain things with this one.
