Ford Montgomery was my first everything.
First love.
First guy I slept with.
First heartbreak when he dumped me without explanation.
A decade later, it’s just my luck he’s the first guy I run into after moving back to my hometown of Charleston. Three piece suit, tie, and a watch worth more than my car--being a mogul looks good on Ford. So does being a doting dad to his adorable four-year-old daughter.
I tell myself I can resist him. But one impulsive, ill-advised kiss later, and Ford is in hot pursuit. He’s determined to make up for his past mistakes, and convinces me to give him a second chance.
What started out as fun between the sheets gets really serious, really fast. Problem is, I swore I’d never give up the dreams I worked so hard for to settle down and do the family thing.
But seeing Ford light up around his daughter--seeing how he’s chasing his ambitions while rocking fatherhood--is making me rethink what I want out of life.
It doesn’t help that behind his corporate veneer is the bad boy I fell in love with. And bad boys aren’t afraid to play dirty...or break hearts.
Southern Heartbreaker is part of the Charleston Heat Series, which is a series of interconnected standalone novels set in the steamy southern town of Charleston, South Carolina.

I love books with conflict that is real, not manufactured by failures to actually speak to one another or other things that always feel a little contrived.  Life is full of things, or situations that you didn't see coming and aren't quite sure how to handle; or ones that completely change your expectations.

Ford is a single dad and Eva doesn't want kids.  Ford respects this of her, and the way she feels...but also wants her to change her mind, to admit that they are meant to be together and that she would be a wonderful mom.

And, this is a real conflict.  It's a real life decision...and, it's handled really well.  Eva isn't made to feel guilty, rather she is allowed to decide if the way she feels about Ford is enough to make her willing to change her mind about the life she wants. 

I love that she tries, that she tries too hard, and that she learns exactly what she wants...and, since it's a romance, it all works out in the end.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
