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.

My review: 5 stars!

I loved every second of reading Southern Heartbreaker, the fourth book in the Charleston Heat series. This second chance and single dad romance would read wonderfully as a standalone, although characters from previous books in the series do appear and certainly are fantastic enough on their own for everyone to go back and read the rest of the series.

One of my favorite things about this series is how food-centric it is- I love the connection the characters have to food and Jessica Peterson is masterful in her dish descriptions and makes me so hungry!

Eva is a bad-ass BBQ pit master looking for inspiration for her next (overdue!) cookbook. Reconnecting with college love Ford gives her that and more. Ford is not only drop dead gorgeous and the one Eva never got over, he's also a pretty darn perfect single dad. Their chemistry is as hot as they remember from college.

I related so much with Eva and her struggle to find a balance between career and personal life. It's a real struggle most women today face. Jessica Peterson handled the issue with grace and wisdom and her ability to write internal monologues is just another one of her many talents.

Southern Heartbreaker will definitely be on my Best of 2019 list!
