New Release Review: Totally Folked by Penny Reid

One unforgettable night leads to an unlikely shared connection, and unlikely connections never go unnoticed by the good folks in Green Valley, Tennessee. . .

Totally Folked, an all-new small town romantic comedy filled with humor and heart from New York Times bestselling author Penny Reid, is available now!

Jackson James follows the rules. He has to. He’s a sheriff’s deputy in a super small town with a super big personality. However, strict adherence to the law during the day has been enjoyably balanced by rakish rules at night. Jackson, typically happy to protect and serve (and serve, and serve), starts questioning the value of wayward evenings when they begin to feel more like being waylaid rather than getting laid. Could it be that Green Valley's most eligible—and notorious—bachelor longs for something (and someone) real?

Mega movie star Raquel Ezra follows only one rule: always leave them wanting more. Strict adherence to this single rule has served her well. Studio execs, reporters, audiences, fans, lovers—no one can get enough of the smart, savvy, and sexy bombshell. But when “generous offers” begin to feel more like excessive demands, years of always leaving has the elusive starlet longing for something (and perhaps someone) lasting.

When Raquel abruptly returns to the quirky Tennessee hamlet, her path crosses with the delectable deputy with whom she spent one unforgettable night. Unfortunately, scandal and intrigue soon follow. Raquel and Jackson must decide which is more important: following their rules? Or, at long last, finding something real.

TOTALLY FOLKED is a standalone, contemporary romantic comedy novel and book #1 in the Good Folk: Modern Folktales series.

My review: 5 stars!

Well, well, well. It turns out the Jackson James isn't worthy of having itching powder placed in his police uniform after all, as Cletus Winston had us believe all this time. Turns out he is quite delightful!

Fans of author Penny Reid's Green Valley world will certainly enjoy getting to know Jackson James without the veneer of the Winston's distain. But readers new to Green Valley will enjoy him from the prologue, where he and actress Raquel first meet roughly 5 1/2 years before the meat of the book.

I'd been excited for this book since reading Reid's free June release Just Folking Around, where we were treated to the prologue and the first chapter of Totally Folked. It was so worth the wait!

Jackson *might* rival Cletus Winston as my favorite Reid hero. His wry humor is gold.

"I reckon dessert tasted different when worn involuntarily."

I enjoyed Rae so much. I love that Green Valley was so unexpectedly charming to her at such a turning point in her life. Both tender and quite steamy, their romance was a joy to read. I am so excited for this series and looking forward to reading more Good Folk tales.
