No, Really, It's Okay - Go
She works as a reporter for a militant feminist magazine, so when Alicia Randall finds out about the town of Sweetness, GA, she's practically salivating over its potential as an investigative reporter's gold mine. Sweetness had been wiped off the map a decade ago when a deadly F5 tornado steamrolled the place. Now three brothers, all former residents, are dedicated to working together to organize the rebuilding and make a completely advanced green town, environmentally

A satisfying ending to the trilogy. I think Marcus is my favorite Armstrong brother, although I didn't warm to Alicia overmuch. The side story with her mother and father, though, was touching, and the entire town is practically a character of its own. The ending was top-notch.

I'm forever reading a series or trilogy in the wrong order. However, that didn't stop me from reading and loving Stephanie Bond's 'Baby, Don't Go,' which is the 3rd book in the Southern Roads Trilogy. I previously read and loved 'Baby, I'm Yours,' which is the Southern Roads Prequel. Now I'll be reading the 1st and 2nd books. If you're looking for a heartwarming, entertaining series with characters you'll love, then you won't want to miss these reads.

Didn't love it and didn't hate it.... Solid 3 stars. I did enjoy hearing about all the other characters and how Sweetness was coming along. The main characters just didn't do it for me.

Of the three Armstrong brothers, Marcus is the most determined to rebuild their hometown of Sweetness, Georgia, which was wiped out by a hurricane a decade before. Now, Sweetness is being rebuilt and since Marcus’s brothers placed an ad for women to join their town, it seems like things are coming together. Businesses are being built, romance is in the air, and the men and women of Sweetness seem to be working

This is the third and final book in the Southern Roads trilogy by Stephanie Bond about three brothers who are rebuilding their hometown, which was completely decimated ten years earlier by a tornado. The first two books focused on brothers Porter and Kendall and explained the concept of the story. Basically, there are hundreds of men rebuilding this isolated town and they start to get a little antsy because there are no women there. So, in order to appease the workers and make sure the

Baby, Don't Go by Stephanie Bond is the third book in her Southern Roads contemporary romance trilogy.

Marcus Armstrong and his brothers have slowly rebuilt the town of Sweetness, Georgia after a devastating tornado. Now, Marcus is feeling the pressure to make sure that everything goes well for some upcoming government inspections that will determine the future of the town. What he doesn't realize is that someone in Sweetness is watching him and the other residents and reporting on their lives an

Alicia was a self-righteous snob from NY who wrote an undercover feminist blog. She found out about sweetness and, true to form, had doubts that anyone could be happy in such a backwoods society like Sweetness. Deciding there were chauvinistic mentalities leading the charge, she decided to make Sweetness her next target.

Then there's Marcus. The all around good guy. He's rough around the edges for sure but deep down he is an absolute sweetheart. To be honest, Marcus has been my favorite Armstrong

Avec ce 3ème tome, Stephanie Bond boucle le projet fou des frères Armstrong, que l"on suit depuis le début du 1er livre de cette trilogie.

Marcus est l'aîné des trois frères, il a plus de charisme que ses cadets, tout le projet repose sur ses épaules, c'est un peu la tête pensante du trio. Dans ce tome la pression est de plus en plus en forte, puisque les échéances auxquelles ils sont soumis arrivent à leur terme. La ville doit être opérationnelle, et certaines normes respectées pour

Interesting read. Unfortunately, the first book I read of this series and also happens to be the last book so I feel a bit like I missed out. It's ok as a stand alone book but it seems like very much a part of a deep series so I would recommend picking up the previous 2 books in the series as well as the prequel.

Marcus is the more serious and short-tempered of the three brothers, but he's also the one who watch over and protect the people in his life. He's kind of the leader of the town reconstruction project so there's a lot pression on his shoulders. And he's the one who made a promise to his father to take care of their hometown. With 6 months left before the deadline, he still have a lot on his plate.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This is the third installment in Southern Road’s trilogy. I typically do not read a book in a series without reading all of them, but the author was able to provide enough of a background that I was able to keep up. The town of Sweetness, GA was destroyed by a tornado, and the Armstrong brothers have their mind set to rebuild the town so it can sustain any natural disaster as well as be eco-fri
I have been waiting to read this one, Marcus was wound so tight that watching him fall was going to be great. I thought how Marcus first met Alisha was great! I kept waiting for that to come back on him, but it didn't.

Alisha surprised me. I sort of didn't like her from the start, thought she was going into her job with a biased and even when she got to town she really didn't want to see what was there. She kept coloring everything to her bent. I felt like she betrayed so many people with her st

review:Baby Don't Go by Stephanie Bond

I really like this series about the town of Sweetness was destroyed by a F5 strom. Only the water tower survived. The Armstong brother came back home to rebuild the town. They brought in lots of workers that lived in a bunkhouse. But no women, so they put out ad in Broadway Michigan for women and offered a free room and board lots of single guys. To help build a town again with green jobs and buildings stronger.

almost 3.5 stars

Given Marcus's perpetual grumpiness in the two previous books of this series, I knew it would take a special kind of woman to chip away at his heart. He's been so completely focused on his hometown of Sweetness -- constructing and repopulating it, making it green, managing everything -- that he rolls his eyes at his brothers' respective love lives. What I wasn't prepared for was Alicia's deceit in order to gain an "in" with the townsfolk.

Oh, there's comic relief thanks to Alicia'

Really good book. Now it is Marcus's turn to find love. He mostly considers the women in town a necessary evil. Without them, the men won't stay. His main concentration is finishing the things that need to be done so that the town can get the grant they need to move on. He is determined that it will be done. Alicia comes to town, undercover, because she is sure there is something fishy going on. She hits town and ends up as the manager of the diner as they try to get it up and running properly. ...more

I liked this just as much as the other two stories in the series. Nothing earth shattering, but it was another decent story. Here, Marcus, the eldest brother with a big responsibility on his shoulders, meets his match in blogger Alicia, who is looking for a story. Covertly, of course.

I think I've realized that I like the heroines in this series more when it's not their story. Both Nikki and Amy came across better here than they did in their own stories. Also, I like all three of the brothers, an

Okay, the third in the trilogy with the serious-minded alpha brother as the center-piece of beefcake. Probably the best of the three, since it has the most interesting characters. Sexy and light.

My BIGGEST problem with this whole trilogy is geography. I know, I know, I'm being petty here, but the place is in the mountains of GA, which would be in the northeastern part of the state. Why go 4 hours to Atlanta for supplies and recreation when Chattanooga would be half that? Atlanta is very cosmopol

I won this book for free from Stephanie's contest web page. This was very good, it's the 3rd book in the "Southern Roads Trilogy", and now I can't wait to read the first two books. In this story the eldest Armstrong brother Marcus has no desire in finding a wife like his brothers have. Trying to rebuild the town of Sweetness in the mountains of Georgia after an F-5 tornado destroyed all of it ten years prior is all he's concerned about.

Not as impressive as I had hoped and the ending felt kind of rushed. I really never liked the heroine, she was too snotty for my tastes. I can't believe in this day in age that she would be that clueless on the ways of how southerners behave. She was always so surprised at how everyone spoke to her when they passed.

I'm guessing I was supposed to feel like she was kind of a wild child because she had a tattoo. Big deal. She was still stuck up. Plus, if she's supposed to be an undercover reporter

I like the town in this book. This is turning into one of those series where you love to read about the town and it's population along with the main romantic storyline.

It is very clear in this book that Stephanie Bond will be making a large series out of the town Sweetness. It's a good thing that the town is interesting and that so much changes in the town from book to book. So that's quite exciting to watch.

Sadly, the romance aspect leaves a bit to be desired and that's what accounts for t

This book rounded out the trilogy nicely, especially since the 2nd book was such a dud (due to the heroine). Although some of the things that happen seemed repetitive from the first two books (things that happen, not just that Bond mentions them again), I still liked this book. I think it was the most humorous of the three. Although I thought Alicia had plenty of times to confess to Marcus (and or the town) what she had done(was doing), especially once she realizes she was wrong about her reason ...more

Alicia was just too cute. Stepping out of her comfort zone of the city to go undercover in Sweetness sounded like a good story, but she got a little more then she bargained for in Marcus. Her problem with fire was pretty funny considering her new job in the diner. Marcus has been my favorite brother all along, due to the fact he just seemed so strong and in charge. What we got to see in this story was all the problems and stress that Marcus has been putting on himself break through his strong ex ...more
