New Release Review: Southern Sinner by Jessica Peterson

North Carolina Highlands Series Book 3

by Jessica Peterson

Release Date: April 22, 2021


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 fiancée 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.

My review: 5 stars!

There's nothing I love more than a good redemption story, and by golly, Jessica Peterson totally redeemed Hank for me in this fantastic fake relationship tale. After Southern Sinner, he's totally my favorite Beauregard brother. Hank and Stevie's blackjack table meet-cute was fun and the Vegas backdrop was the perfect setting for their no-string-attached hookup. But of course who did Hank think of months later when he needed a volunteer girlfriend for his plan? It was fun seeing lines get blurred as fake turned into real- their chemistry was so real and so very hot. Jessica Peterson's writing is so delightful and I cannot wait for her next release.
