After being left for dead, I was given a fresh start by my knight in shining armor.
I never had a family before they took me in.
But I don’t know how to stay or trust.
I always had a bag packed and ready just in case I needed to escape again.
Like they say, old habits die hard.
Being in the shadows is lonely, but lonely is safe.
I was the quiet one, the one who stood in the back and watched things unfold. The cowboy who only cared about his horses instead of the glory.
Until I found her fighting for her life. Something inside me shifted, and I couldn’t stop it.
I couldn’t stop protecting her.
I fell in love with her with one look because she was my soul mate.
Even though I knew I couldn't make her stay.
Southern Heat by Natasha Madison is a standalone in her Southern series and I loved it. Though normally I would say every book can be read as a standalone, I would suggest at least reading book 5 in the series as the characters are introduced deeper in that book. I absolutely loved this book and the main characters. Quinn and Willow are everything. Quinn was caring, protective and just so freaking sweet. Willow was so broken and lost at the start of the story, but we watched her grow and blossom.
Their story is a slow burn romance. Probably one of the slowest romances I have read in a while, but it fit the story and the characters journey. Willow is healing. She has never belonged anywhere and has never had anyone on her side. Quinn was drawn to Willow in a way he has never been to any other woman. She draws him in and all he wants is to care and protect her. I devoured this story and found it sweet and charming with a bit of angst and so many feels.
