All I wanted to do was run away, I never expected to crash into his arms…

After leaving the city life behind to escape my loveless marriage, I moved to small town Havenbarrow for a fresh start.

What I didn’t expect was to find myself drawn to the town’s black sheep.

They called him troubled. Cold. A man with a dark past.

What everyone seemed to miss about Jax was the splashes of light in his eyes. The random acts of kindness he performed when no one was watching. The way he made me smile and laugh.

Jax helped unpack the baggage I’d been carrying around with me. He was patient with my pain and gentle with my scars. He was the stillness during my hurricane.

Yet when both of our pasts come back to haunt our present days, we realized quickly that sometimes love stories didn’t end the way we’d hoped.

Sometimes you were left with only the damage from the storm.

MY REVIEW

“After every storm, the sun would shine again.”

“I wished for a miracle, and around the corner was Jax Kilter.”

“The best thing in life that we can ever do is be brave enough to love. Fall in lover with her, and then don’t you ever stop….”

Another heartbreaking and beautifully written second chance romance from author Brittiany C. Cherry. Southern Storms is sure to capture your heart and leave you with so many feels.

Southern Storm follows the story of Jax and Kennedy. The last year or so of Kennedy’s life has been one heck of a roller-coaster ride. When her husband demands a divorce from her, it’s the straw the breaks the camels back. Kennedy flees town and finds sanctuary in her sister’s hometown. The one thing she didn’t see coming was Jax. Jax might be the town’s black sheep and biggest jerk, but there is more to Jax than meets the eye. There’s light in his darkness, but he doesn’t let many see. The connection between these two lost souls proves to be bigger than either one of them could ever imagine and only time will tell if these two lost souls can weather the storm that is about to come for them….

Southern Storms is the kind of story that sucks in you in from the very beginning and captures your soul. From the moment I met Kennedy, I was drawn to and consumed by her. Her story broke my heart. She was so lost, so hurt. She only wanted someone to understand her pain and to love her the way that she needed to be loved. And then there is Jax. Jax is known as the town jerk. He’s rude and closed off. He doesn’t let anyone in, no matter how hard they try. His past consumes him with guilt and makes it so hard for him to move on. And when fate brings these two lost souls together, all bets are off. No matter how hard they try to fight it or how hard they try to stay away, Jax and Kennedy are like magnets. They can’t fight the pull.

The road to happily ever after is quite a bumpy one for Jax and Kennedy. Their story broke me and had me rooting for them to find their happily ever after. I loved watching them trying to navigate their way through all the cards that fate had dealt them. It wasn’t easy, but nothing worth having is. Sometimes love will test you and if you can make it out to see the other side, then you know, your love is powerful enough to weather any storm.

Southern Storms is the true meaning of a second chance romance. The characters are real and raw and were given the best supporting cast. The writing is powerful and beautiful at the same time. Southern Storms is heartbreaking. It’s beautiful. It’s filled with hope and a few surprises along the way. It’s everything I want in a love story and then some…

Southern Storms kicks off the Compass Series with one heck of a start and I can’t wait to see what journey lies ahead for us readers next!

Excerpt

Kennedy

Joy Jones was quite the character to take in. That morning, when the sun came up, she walked outside to her front porch and sat down in her rocking chair with a smile on her face and a large cup of coffee. A few of my nosy visitors told me that it was a daily routine for her.

Her silver-dripped hair was tossed up in a messy bun being held together with two knitting needles, and her thick-framed, vibrant-orange glasses sat on top of her head. She wore a vibrant bow in her hair that matched her dress for the day, and she always greeted everyone who passed by her house, even when they didn’t speak back to her. Everyone in town called her Crazy Joy, even though she was the kindest person. Her only odd quirk was that she never left her property.

I wondered how she managed, though. I wondered how she kept living without stepping foot outside of her home. It seemed she hadn’t any children and she didn’t have a caregiver who came to aid her, from what I could tell.

Later that morning, my questions were answered as a blue pick-up truck pulled in front of the house. Needless to say, my jaw dropped to the ground when I saw Mr. Personality step out of the vehicle. He walked his way straight toward Joy’s front porch with his arms filled with grocery bags.

He proceeded to greet Joy. She stood from the rocking chair as he set the bags down on the porch. Then, he hugged her.

He hugged her!

I wouldn’t have thought someone as grumpy as Mr. Personality had the ability to hug someone. The two of them walked inside to put the groceries away, leaving me completely baffled and unable to return to my scheduled reading. It took a lot to break me away from a book. And by ‘a lot,’ I meant a lot. My house could’ve been on fire, aliens could’ve beamed me up, and I would’ve still been trying to get in that one last page. When my own love story was broken, I turned to story books to heal the cracks of my broken heartbeats. When my world fell apart, the story books still believed in happily ever afters. Those books saved me on the days I felt my soul falling victim to the hardest of storms.

Yet, Mr. Personality pulled me away from the words against the page. He made me curious about him walking into Joy’s house. Watching him chat away with her had my mind racing. A few minutes later, when the two of them walked back outside with two glasses in their hands—one with wine, the other with some dark liquor—whiskey, I assumed—I couldn’t stop myself from glancing over to them. Joy kept talking, and Mr. Personality kept responding. Even though I couldn’t hear what they were saying, Joy looked beyond smitten with whatever was being said her way, which forced my own heart to skip a few beats.

Well, I’ll be damned.

The town’s asshole made me swoon.
