    Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession

    A Night of Southern Comfort was the first book in the Boys are Back In Town Series by Robin Covington and I really enjoyed it. This is my first taste of Robin Covington and I really liked her writing style. Jack our hero was very very sexy. He had so much southern charm. He was a ex marine and a detective so double yummy. Military Men, Cops, and firefighters are a total weakness of mine so Jack was right up my alley. He was sweet and protective and I just loved him. Michaela was great too.

I loved that she was confident and went after what she wanted in life. She had no problem telling people what she really thought. Jack and Michaela were cute together and had tons of passion. For a shorter book it was packed full of romance and had a pretty good relationship build up. I could have used a little more individual character development because I felt like I only scratched the surface of Jack and Michaela but the book was only 151 pages. Overall a great quick read!

With this debut, Robin Covington hooks readers immediately with a genuine scorcher wrapped in what I would call a near-perfect cover. From the first page through the last page, the romance and suspense in this novel was captivating and intriguing. It is well crafted with characters that you’ll find no problem connecting with. The action is well-paced and the happily ever after is more than satisfying. When “Gwyneth” walked out the door the morning after a one-night stand with “James,” neither expected to see the other again. But when both of them are summoned to the home of Governor Eastland -- one in the line of duty and the other as his daughter -- Detective Jackson Cantrell a/k/a “James” and Dr. Michaela Roarke a/k/a “Gwyneth” discover that “daddy” has some expectations of his own. Unbeknownst to Michaela, danger is following her. Even though she wants no part of her father’s plan, Jack is assigned the job of keeping her safe – and the Governor has upped the stakes with a secret deal that is almost impossible for Jack to turn his back on. If you’re looking for a fast-paced romance with not only smoldering chemistry but believable and realistic as well between H/H, look no further. This one has all the elements with a perfect blend of suspense, too. Jackson Cantrell is just too scrumptious to even describe. Definitely a 12 on the 1-10 scale! And Kayla is no slouch either and very admirable. The small town of Elliott and its citizens (Jack’s family included) also make a grand group of secondary cast. One of those secondary characters is Jack’s cousin, Luke. This reader hopes Luke’s story will follow soon.

The heroine has worked hard to get away from her father and has bought a practice in the hero's home-town. She has spent a lifetime being thrown over by men for her father and what his power can bring, so she doesn't believe she has a stalker instead she believes it is another attempt by her father to bring her back. The hero agrees to keep an eye on her, on his terms, the Governor can get him his old job back. He tries to keep things between them platonic but can't. Honestly, I liked the book but didn't love it. Jackson was an okay hero though I did like his other friends a lot. I didn't get why he was the loner type since he came from a loving family but he kind of never fit in. I found that Kayla(his name for her) forgave him too quickly in the end and that didn't ring true for me. Also I found the story to be more about the sex and somehow the emotions got a bit diluted for me. The mystery part was quite simplistic. Still a good attempt and I will try other books by this author.

    I never gush about a book unless I really, really love it. And boy, did I love this book! I'm staggered that it's Robin Covington's debut novel...talking about setting the bar high! In Kayla and Jack she has created two wonderful characters, well-matched in their independence and hidden vulnerabilities. And the sexual tension between them? Sizzles off every page. With wickedly hot sex and sparkling dialogue, this book was a winner. I hated putting it down and can't wait for the follow ups with Teague, I never gush about a book unless I really, really love it.

Ms. Covington does an invigorating job describing these characters in a way that makes them come to life.

Ms. Covington does an invigorating job describing these characters in a way that makes them come to life. You do more than just read about their conflicts, it feels as though you are experiencing their emotions as well. Michaela is the daughter of a governor. He is a single father and his children have been nothing more than props for him in gaining the sympathy vote. He doesn’t really care for her or her brother. He just demands that nothing they do cause any negative publicity to shine on him. When Michaela attracts the attention of a stalker her father intervenes only because he needs this issue to go away quietly. Jackson is an undercover detective. After his last FBI mission got botched he was allowed to resign or get fired. The governor hires Jackson to find out who is behind this mess with his daughter. If he does not agree he will be fired from his cop job, and if he agrees and succeeds, he will be given his FBI dream-job back. One steamy night, just prior to this stalker issue Michaela and Jackson shared an electrifying one night stand in a hotel room. They shared no personal information with each other, only bodies and sizzling passion. Imagine their surprise when their paths cross again. They both agree to let the past lie in the past, but as they continue to spend more and more time together their bodies don’t agree with that plan. Jackson has his own demons to work through in this book. He has a career oriented life goal and is not about to let a woman get in the way. Michaela has tried to live her own independent life away from her father, but he always seems to worm his way into every relationship she has ever had. It seems as though this couple is doomed from the start. I really loved the plot of this story. The journey and obstacles that these two face were believable and understandable. You really get the whole package with this one. It’s packed with adventure and action. We get hot sex and sweaty sheets. Complete with a crazy stalker and small town gossip. If you’re looking for a book that is edgy and keeps you pulled in from the beginning to the end, you won’t want to miss out on this one.

Jackson Cantrell Kayla Roarke I saw this book by way of author Laura Kaye's book review. I checked it out. Normally, I do not like covers with faces. I like to imagine what the characters look like based on the author's descriptions. But the intensity on the faces immediately caught my attention and it accurately portrays what's inside the cover (or in this case between Kindle swipes). Dr. Michaela "Kayla" Roarke and Detective Jackson Cantrell begin an incendiary relationship that starts off with a one night stand. Of course, fate brings them together as Kayla has a stalker who has taken compromising pictures of Kayla and is trying to blackmail Kayla's father, the Governor. Jackson is brought in to track down the stalker and protect Kayla. Kayla is the “perfect photo-op” daughter bullied by an overbearing father. She is trying to escape his manipulating ways. Jackson is recovering from a trauma where while undercover his partner and lover are killed. Overcoming their reticence, Kayla and Jackson fall into a hot relationship. This books tips more towards the romance then the suspense, but still there is a tight little mystery going on here. Still, the romance is front and center. The bedroom scenes are intimately written guaranteed to raise the reader’s temperature a few hot, sweaty degrees. My one small critique is that there are many side characters that I would have loved to learn more about - Teague Elliott and “the Boys” (do I see a series here in the making?). Theresa and Vergie do not get enough screen time. As we have seen from other books, Southern women can add layers of color to a story. This is an enjoyable read. The story flows and reads fast. It is difficult to believe this is Robin Covington’s debut novel. My only warning when reading this on an e-reader, be mindful of who is sitting next to you on the plane, train, or automobile. They may be trying to read this hot little number over your shoulder.

    This was a really nice surprise. This is a new author for me and I loved her writing style. The Hero was dreamy and the heroine didn't get on my last nerve (although I really wish she wasn't sooooo perfect - she's a doctor and she looks like Gweynth Paltrow!?!) Oh well, I still had a great time and can't wait to read about the rest of "the boys". This was a really nice surprise. This is a new author for me and I loved her writing style.

    I don't read very much hetero romance. It's not a slam against the genre, it's just that I'm gay and write m/m romance, so I tend to stick to my area of expertise, shall we say? But this book may have changed all that. I'm a sucker for a good suspense thriller, and Robin Covington dishes one helluva good one up here in her first book. It didn't hurt that the characters drew me in, fragile Michaela with a spine of steel, and hot, hunky, withdrawn Jackson. They meet for a steamy, sexy one night ...

I could feel their connection slink right off the page. The characters drew me in, the story kept me hooked, and I finally got to the point where I couldn't just read a dozen pages a night, I had to see how the book ended. So I made an appointment with myself and sat down and finished it one afternoon, completely satisfied with the ending. I hear word of a sequel that delves into a story featuring Jackson's best friend Lucky, and I'm already in line waiting to download that book. But do yourself a favor and get this one now, you owe it to yourself.

What she wants more than anything is to be allowed to live her life in peace and keep out of the spotlight and it looks like her father has finally given into her demands. Her night out to celebrate takes a heated turn for the better when she spots Jackson in the hotel bar. Promising herself just one night of scorching hot sex before settling into her new quiet life in a small town Michaela finds that Jackson more than fulfils her every fantasy. A month on and she never expected to see him again but when threats are made against her life Jackson happens to be the man her father hires to protect her. Both are wary of a relationship but neither can deny the attraction they feel. Can Jackson keep her safe without losing his heart in the process? I was completely hooked into this story from the minute I started reading and I didn't want to put it down until I'd devoured every page. A Night of Southern Comfort is a fantastic debut and has added Robin Covington to my list of must read authors. This author certainly knows how to create scorching chemistry between her characters and this one steamy read right from the very beginning. Michaela and Jackson practically melted my kindle from the moment they met but what I loved most was seeing them develop feelings for each other as they got to know each other better. Jackson was hot (and oh sooooo sexy *fans self*), caring, protective and absolutely smitten with Michaela from pretty much the moment they met - even if he wouldn't admit it to himself! It was quite funny watching his jealousy when he thought one of his friends was making a move on her. Talking of his friends I absolutely loved all of the boys - Jackson, Lucky, Teague and Beckett - and the banter between them. I really want to read all of their stories and I was incredibly excited to find out that Robin is already writing Lucky's book. Michaela was one of those characters who is extremely easy to like, her life has been made miserable by her good for nothing father but I admired the way she stood up to him. She copes well considering she is being stalked but that mainly because she is convinced it is a trick her father has come up with to get her to come home. She has finally had a taste of freedom though and won't let anything get in her way of continuing to live the life that she wants. If I have one minor complaint it would be that I'd guessed who the stalker was quite early on. I hoped I'd be proved wrong but in the end I wasn't which was a little disappointing. Having said that I still loved the story - I loved the characters, I loved not knowing what the stalker would do next and I definitely loved every second that Michaela and Jackson spent together. I would happily recommend this to any contemporary romance fan looking for scorching love scenes and a relationship worth believing in. I know I'll automatically be buying whatever story Robin Covington releases next!

When they meet again, a month later, the sparks are still there, but now Michaela is in danger and the prime suspect is her controlling father. Governor Eastland forces Jackson to watch over his daughter. Despite that, Jackson doesn't want to see any harm come to Michaela anyway, so with the help of Lucky, his cousin and partner at the Roanoke Police Dept., they must figure out who is after Michaela before it's too later. I have not read a lot of romantic suspense books up to this point, and I really don't know why. A Night of Southern Comfort is a great story. Kayla and Jackson are really great together. I very much enjoyed the romance between them. Even with Jackson trying to convince himself that he needs to stay professional around her, their chemistry cannot be denied. With Kayla's dating history, she worries that any guy interested in her is only after her father's favors. But with Jackson, things are different. She let's down her guard with him. She feels completely free for the first time in her life. I like her strong willed personality, yet she has her vulnerable moments as well. Now, although this might seem like a really odd thing to like about the book, I'm going to say it anyway. I liked the fact that Kayla was said to often visit The Southern Comfort diner, in which Jackson's mother was the owner, to have a piece of pie and not once, whenever pie was involved or mentioned, did Robin Covington feel the need to add things like: "I know I shouldn't be eating this..." or "If you eat too much of that it will make you fat." or any other negative comments towards Kayla's enjoyment of her pie! That was kind of nice actually. Of course, I did laugh at Jackson's reaction when he found out that her 'usual' is a sweet tea and a piece of chocolate peanut butter pie. Apart from the romance aspect of the story, I rather enjoyed the interaction between Jackson and his cousin Lucky. They grew up together, they know each other so well, and Lucky tells Jackson the true whether he wants to hear it or not. Even when Jackson would rather pick a fight with Lucky than listen to him, Lucky is always there when he needs his help. There was a point at the end of the book where I thought that Robin could have easily ended the story there but she didn't. I'm grateful for that because I loved how she did end it. I look forward to reading more of Robin's work in the future! ** I received a digital copy of A Night of Southern Comfort for a giveaway win.**

We meet a young beautiful woman in a hotel bar celebrating a new turn in her life. Across the room is a group of very handsome men playing pool, all in tuxes. One of these sexy men catches her eye. She was actually looking at his butt! He comes across the room and she asks if he would like a drink. Thus begins a night of passion that totally unnerves her. She has never done a one night stand. He agrees from the beginning...no names, no strings, one night. He calls her Gwyneth ( Paltrow) she calls him James ( Bond). He wakes up in the morning, and she is gone. He feels a strange tug in his chest, but laughs it off. What did he expect? James and Gwyneth are destined to meet again. He turns out to be Jackson Cantrell , former FBI, now detective. She is Michaela Roarke , Pediatrician, daughter of the former Governor of Virgina. The night she was celebrating her new life? It was getting away from her extremely controlling and verbally abusive father. Life has some crazy things coming up for these two. In this HOT, suspenseful and funny story, we meet the residents of Elliott, Virginia. We also meet "The Boys", childhood friends who are still very close. " Lucky" Landon is Jack's partner and cousin, Dr. Beckett Sutherland surgeon, and Teague Elliott attorney. I'm so hoping Ms. Covington has some stories for these guys!  I finished this book in one day. From the first chapter to the last, the dialogue is great, the characters are strong and appealing, and the suspense will take you by surprise. I highly recommend this fast paced sizzling story. Hope there is more!

    One night, fake names, chemistry so hot it can scald… and then you walk away. But what happens when the sexy guy you pick up at the hotel bar and left the next morning you end up running into again, in your father’s living room? Awkward! It’s even worse when you’re the governors grown daughter and your dad is trying to manipulate your life by controlling everything. That’s what happens to Michaela. And while Jackson Cantrell doesn’t normally do anything he doesn’t want to do, Michaela dad’s has One night, fake names, chemistry so hot it can scald… and then you walk away.

It’s even worse when you’re the governors grown daughter and your dad is trying to manipulate your life by controlling everything. That’s what happens to Michaela. And while Jackson Cantrell doesn’t normally do anything he doesn’t want to do, Michaela dad’s has the one thing he badly wants, reinstatement to the FBI. This sets the story for A Night of Southern Comfort. I can honestly say I wasn’t expecting this to be such a steamy read. I wasn’t familiar with this author’s writing and picked up this book when it was on sale. Because it’s only 150 pages, I wasn’t committing too much if I didn’t like her writing style. Not to worry though. I found this book very readable! Michaela and Jack are hot right from the very first pick up and get hotter along the way. Both characters are very likeable. Throw in their great chemistry, a little jealousy, a couple secrets, and a stalker and you have a great lay by the pool book. While the “who done it” doesn’t offer much suspense, this is still a fun read. I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up another book by author Robin Covington again and am actually looking forward to reading the second book in the series which is Lucky’s HEA. Who can resist a former Black Ops assassin? Not me!

    WOW what a great book. I love when I get immersed into the book and feel the characters in the first chapter. I loved Detective Jackson Cantrell (Jack) and Dr. Michaela Roarke (everyone calls he Dr Mike). When the book started I have to say the main reason I liked it was Michaela, she was the aggressor and pursued Jack. All is hot and steamy and then he wakes up and she is gone. A few weeks later the story gets woven into a political intrigue and a scandal. Someone takes pictures of Michaela wit WOW what a great book.

He realized in a few seconds that she was his one nighter and now knows her Dad is the Governor. The stalker is attacking and Jackson moves into Michaela's house to protect her. Now the Gov. tries to blackmail Jack saying you watch her and I will get your old FBI job back. He accepts. Now how does he get through this and how can he tell her? There are so many suspense filled pages. Just loved the last two reveals. I can see a series here ....hint hint Ms Covington. So impressed and say it is a fab read with steam!!

    Actually, I give this a 4.5 rating (and the sex scenes at least a 6 because you can feel the heat, smell the sweat but their inclusion is neither contrived nor gratuitous.) Jack and Michaela are sufficiently believable that if you reached out to touch them their skin would depress beneath your fingertips. The romance is hot and engaging throughout and the only reason I withheld a .5 so as not to award a full five star rating is because the ending as far as plot is concerned was a little light for Actually, I give this a 4.5 rating (and the sex scenes at least a 6 because you can feel the heat, smell the sweat but their inclusion is neither contrived nor gratuitous.)

    This was a pleasant surprise. The story in and of itself doesn't break any new ground as far as contemporary romances go, but I enjoyed her writing style. Kayla could've come off as stuffy and boring but the author made sure to give her a distinctive and sometimes kick ass personality, especially when dealing with her overbearing father. Jack was the average "I don't want a relationship" kind of guy but still managed to pull off the hotness. Good reading all the way around. This was a pleasant surprise.

    I'm glad I came back to read #1 after having read #3 first. The story was interesting, the characters were interesting. I really loved it when he thought he'd been a random guy at the hotel, but she told him that she hadn't gone to the hotel looking for a guy. That when she saw him, she felt like she had to have him. And the epilogue was cute in that it was reminiscent of that initial meeting. On to #2... I'm glad I came back to read #1 after having read #3 first.
