Southern Comfort (Compass Brothers #2)
Caught between desire and a promise…
Seth Compton knew from the first that his boss’s daughter was all wrong for him. She was too feisty, too damned independent and, at seven years his junior, too damned young. When she comes home with a college diploma and fiancé on her arm, though, he can’t quite remember all the reasons he held her at arm’s length.
It’s not just his je...more
Seth and Jody have always wanted each other. Jody made her interest obvious over the years and Seth always held back, thinking she was either too young or just not able to handle what he needs. By the time she feels beaten and rejected she moves on and he all ...more
I want a Seth. When we meet him, he has been a very good boy for nearly 3 years. He promised Jodi’s daddy that he wouldn’t touch her until she finished college. This meant that no matter how hard she tried to seduce him, he resisted. Unfortunately for Seth, there is only so much rejection a girl can take. Jodi comes home a woman determined to move on with her life. Yes she loves him, but she isn’t a masochist, and he has hurt her one too man ...more
I like the characters and the interweaving story lines...and I devoured these books. But I don't see myself ...more

This is book two that focuses on Seth Compton, second oldest after Silas. I will admit that I liked Silas' book more for the intro to the family than for his story itself. But Seth's story is all about him!
Full of great characters (loved Paul) and an even better heroine to match Seth's personality. I really enjoyed getting to see the brothers' chat s ...more

Jody has loved Seth (who works for her father) since she was 12 but he never gave her any indication he wanted her, although they were always close friends. She gre ...more
Seth Compton always knew he would leave his family’s Wyoming ranch for the wide-open Texas spaces. After ten years, he’s foreman on the Kirkland spread, his life is great, and that’s when the boss’ daughter comes home from college after graduation. Seth has avoided her advances for years, knowing that, at seven years his junior, she wasn’t ready for his ...more
Seth's characterization is emotionally rich in a way the other Compton brothers' aren't. His conflicted longin ...more
I really liked what Jody and Paul were trying to do, but hated that it was one more issue that had the potential to come between Jody and Seth. I did love how Paul encourages Seth to save Jody from herself while drinking. I thought it was funny too how Tommy enc ...more
I can understand though why Seth was trying his hardest to stay away. At such a young age, their age difference really did seem bigger than it would have if they were older. I'm just glad it worked out in the end.
I really ...more
Seth sweet as can be, love him.
Been this book 2 on the series you could tell it was a little better than the first one. My pet peeve, that from the prologue it had pass 10 yrs, also 10 yrs since he moved to Texas yeah doesn't add up, since he didn't moved to Texas until about a year after the events on the prologue.
Ok showing up in her wedding dress was friking hilarious.
But I actually really enjoyed it. I like Seth.
I wouldn't have minded getting kidnapped by him.
The beginning was a bit repetitive as it connected to the first book, but I think all of them will be that way.
On to the next!
