Southern Heart by Natasha Madison

4 STARS!

Release Date: March 6, 2021

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

REVIEW: This was exactly what I expected from a Natasha Madison romantic suspense. An instant and strong connection between the characters and lots of drama! This family has fascinated me throughout all of the books, and it’s really awesome to see the kids get their stories told. I do enjoy the connection between Chelsea‘s relationship and her mother Savannah’s relationship. This series also addresses the impact of family on our relationships and how people view us. I always enjoy seeing that play out. I’m always entertained the strong women in this series and the alpha men that fall for them. Mayson is so endearing, especially as you find out more about him. I do love a tortured male lead. And how Chelsea sees what’s most important about him as a person is just the best. She does something really dumb, and it made me want to reach in the book and smack her, but other than that this was a fun read!

Southern Sunrise by Natasha Madison

5 STARS!

Release Date: July 7, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South. Emily – I fell in love with him when I was fourteen. Under the stars, he told me he loved me, and under the stars we promised to love each other always. But under the stars, he broke my heart by walking away. He left me without a second glance. I was just an afterthought.
Now he’s back, but this time, I’m not falling for his Southern charm. Maybe. It’s time I get my happily ever after, even if part of me wishes he was still mine.
Ethan – I found out on my twenty-first birthday that everything I thought I knew was a lie, and the man I had grown up thinking was my father wasn’t. The pain I felt blinded me, making it impossible to hear what anyone said. I left them all behind, including her, my best friend and the woman I was going to marry. Five years later, I’m back, only to find the woman I still love has another man’s ring on her finger. She’s going to marry my best friend unless I stop her. And this time, I only have until sunrise to change her mind.

REVIEW: Okay, this may have been my most favorite of the series. I was a little worried about Emily being engaged, because I hate when characters break up relationships, but Natasha Madison plotted this story perfectly. It was amazing to see the long term consequences of the prior characters’ choices to keep certain things secret. Whether it was for good reasons, or not, it still caused damage. It was also intriguing to see how it played out over years with these people that had all become family. It’s all a little heartbreaking, but at the same time, it showed how strong love and family is. I just had so much empathy for Ethan and I loved seeing him work to overcome his own mistakes. Anyway, this was one hell of a way to wrap up this series!

Southern Series by Natasha Madison

Overall Series: 4 STARS!

This series is full of quick reads, lots of suspense and drama, and all the damn feels. The characters are all tangled up in each other and endure a lot of difficult events. Something I appreciate about this series is how Natasha Madison made my feelings change about all the characters as they developed over all three books! I’m looking forward to the fourth book, because I’m sure it’s going to be chock full of angst and messiness that she writes so well.

Book 1: Southern Chance

3.5 STARS

Release Date: March 17, 2020

SYNOPSIS: 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.

REVIEW: I sincerely hated the beginning of this book. I was mad at every single character for how they acted, which just made me need to read the whole damn book to know what happened. And I have to say, I’m glad I stuck it out! By the end of the book, I was smiling and opening up book 2! Let’s just say there are a lot of mistakes made, but at the end of the day some things are just meant to be. The side characters really added to this story and it’s so awesome to get their HEAs in books 2 and 3!

Book 2: Southern Comfort

4 STARS

Release Date: April 14, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.

Olivia – When you find out that your fiancé is arrested for swindling over ten million dollars from his clients, you do what any sane woman would do. You escape reality and go undercover, trading in your city-girl Louboutins for country-pumpkin cowboy boots. It wasn’t a forever change—it was temporary. I only had to stay here until things back home got straightened out, or so I thought.

Casey – I was riding horses before I was walking, or at least that was what they told me. I always knew I would take over the family farm. It’s in my blood. Country boy at heart, the minute I saw her dragging her luggage up the gravel driveway I knew she was out of my league.I shouldn’t have started anything with her, because I knew she was just passing through. I couldn’t stop it, I fell in love with her. Even though I knew, in the end, she would leave me.

REVIEW: This a damn romantic suspense with messy characters and lots of ups and downs. When I first saw glimpses of Olivia and Casey in the first book, I was really looking forward to their book. I feel like we got so much more depth to these characters than I was expecting, because they are so much more than what you see. This was a wild ride and it really added to the series overall!

Book 3: Southern Storm

4 STARS

Release Date: May 19, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.

Savannah – I’m the one who broke up the golden couple. The woman people still whisper about, point at, and give dirty looks to. Did I sleep with the prom king? No. Did I sleep with the town’s golden boy on vacation from college? Yes. Did I believe that he was going to marry me? Wholeheartedly. Did he? Not even close. He got engaged right in front of me and then his father threw two hundred dollars at me and told me to take the trash out. So, I raised my son in a town where people love him because they think that his father is the sheriff. It was going great, everything was working out till my lie got out.

Beau – I was getting ready to take over the mayoral office from my father, who was my hero. Until I heard the secret he hoped would stay buried forever. My brother has a son, not just any son but a son with the woman who was my best friend. The woman I secretly have loved from the moment she stood up to me and broke my nose in kindergarten. I need to protect her and in order to do that, we need to get married. Too bad her nightmare is my dream come true.

REVIEW: I had questionable feeling towards Savannah, but I really loved Beau throughout the previous books. That meant I had mixed feelings going into this book in general, but I was also beyond interested to see how Natasha Madison was going to handle the drama that I knew what coming. Luckily, she got right to it in the opening scenes! Let me just say, Beau doesn’t show who is really is at beginning, but he makes up for it right away. Beau is freakin’ swoony and I just loved how he stood up for Savannah. By the end of this book, I was rooting for them both and I loved seeing their journey together.
