Southern Sinner by Jessica Peterson - ARC Review & Blog Tour


What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Until I brought my fake girlfriend home.

When I took a seat next to the gorgeous brunette at the blackjack table, I had no idea it would be the start of the hottest weekend of my life. By day, Stevie and I dominate the casinos of Sin City.

By night, I dominate her in my penthouse suite.

Then my brother Samuel ruins it by asking me to come home for his engagement party.

Because he’s not just getting married. This isn’t a normal celebration for me. His future bride is my ‘one who got away.’ The girl I may or may not still be in love with.

The catch? He wants me to prove I’m over his fianc√©e before they set a date. So I ask Stevie to double down on our chemistry and pretend to be my girlfriend.

We set our ground rules: lots of sex, plenty of pretend smiles, and no strings.

But we’re not only gambling with the truth. We’re gambling with our hearts.

They say every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future. But Stevie’s past may force us to fold on our future before it’s even begun.

I love fake romance stories, not sure why, but they are a favorite of mine. I think because I love the idea of the romance that sort of sneaks up on the characters, that it's more than they thought it would be.

Hank and Stevie meet in Vegas and have an instantaneous connection. And, as Hank has work out with his family, and his brother specifically, he decides that the best way to heal the rift in the family is to show that he has moved on and found someone the cause of the rift was related to who he was in love with. (Definitely hard to discuss this without spoilers, egads.)

And, well, as often happens in life and definitely happens in romance, when things are definitely going to go in one direction, they all of a sudden make a lot more sense if they go in a completely unexpected one.

This is a standalone, although it is an interconnected story and, while not strictly necessary, reading the other books in this series will give you a little more of the emotional depth of this one...although, if you haven't read them, this is enough of a standalone that you will be fine.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
