Take Your Time (Dirty South #2) by Brittany Carter
Publication Date: February 11th, 2020
Fans of Katherine Allred’s THE SWEET GUM TREE and Rachel Gibson’s TRULY MADLY YOURS will love this second chance at romance in this steamy contemporary Southern romance. TAKE YOUR TIME is the sequel to LEAD THE WAY which is as hot as its summer setting and spiced with a touch of mystery and suspense.
Swayze Miller, or so her name is this week, has been on the run for almost two years, hiding from her husband’s killer with her three-year-old son, Ryker. Now, she hopes this small Louisiana town will be big enough to hold her secrets.
When Swayze meets a sexy-as-sin cowboy named Montgomery King, she’s determined not to fall for his charms. But Montgomery isn’t easily deterred.
After a five-year ride with the rodeo and a couple of national wins, Montgomery returns to King Ranch to help his brother Kaden. Kaden King hates Montgomery for leaving after their parents’ death, strapping him with the responsibility of running the ranch alone. He also blames him for trying to come onto his girlfriend when the two were in high school — which was a total bullshit lie to begin with, according to Montgomery.
Despite her intentions, Swayze’s guard begins to fall gently. She opens her heart to Montgomery’s wicked mouth and rough hands that strip her of any resistance she has left.
Soon, Swayze’s comfortable life begins to unravel, and the secrets finally find their way back to her. It’s clear now that not everyone is who they say they are. Swayze and Montgomery’s pasts may be closer than either imagined.
If you love small-town romances, you’ll love DIRTY SOUTH by Brittany Carter, formally writing as best-selling author, Alla Kar.
This is my first read from Brittany Carter and boy did I enjoy it! This was honestly such a cute read and a great break from ALL the dark romance I’ve been reading lately. There’s nothing like a good old cowboy who’s ready to steal your heart. Montgomery King and Swayze Miller are so perfect for each other. They have undeniable chemistry and deserve nothing but true happiness. Brittany Carter does a great job of painting a vivid picture of everything that is going on and that’s when I know I’m reading a really good book. There’s a mystery, some twists and lots of love. This was such a great slow-burn read and something I really needed!
I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review.
