"A Very Southern Affair" by Elaina Lee was a good romance read. It was definitely a novel that would make you smile and laugh out loud! I really enjoyed every page of the book. The novel flowed very well from the beginning till the end. You were kept intrigued with this storyline just wandering what was going to happen next!

A VERY SOUTHERN AFFAIR is a delicious romp through the blistering south, where everything that can go wrong does, and with delightful comical style! Elaina Lee's tale of southern dignity gone awry is a laugh-out-loud encounter with some of the most endearing, amusing characters you'll ever read.

Hollee Emmaleigh Rutherford has a problem. Kaiden Thorne is in town, and the last thing she wants to feel for him is a simmering attraction. It's his job to secure a real estate deal, and as town-liaison-

While a cute read it was a little too slapstick for me and was very often jumpy that I had to turn back and see if I skipped a page. Some of the characters were way over the top especially Booker, Estelle and Teddy Gomez. Hollee and Kaiden were total opposites not only because one was from the South and the other the North. Nevertheless, regardless of their differences, they had instant chemistr

Hollee Rutherford, wedding planner and Official Liaison of the City of Belleville, Alabama, has an important task—to save her dying town by making sure Kaiden Thorne’s employer builds a resort there. But when the Yankee from Pennsylvania comes to her small southern town, obstacles (natural and man-made) make it difficult for her to achieve that goal. Hostile townspeople, fleas, zoning that doesn’t allow the sale of liquor, cockroaches as big as mice, the hot and humid August weather—all could ...more

Hollee Rutherford is the town liaison for the small southern town of Belleville and is supposed to welcome northerner, Kaiden Thorne whose company is considering building a resort there. Problem is, while Hollee is supposed to make him feel welcome, the locals are hostile as they don’t want their turf invaded by big business. And the locals will do about anything to drive him off, including staffing his motel room with fleas (yikes!).

Soon, Hollee finds herself falling for Kaiden and to say Holle

First off I think the cover is so cute and the story as well. I was cracking up with all the creative things that happened to Kaiden. I also was laughing at some of the things Hollee does. Like the vintage dress and the bridesmaids dress. I can still imagine Kaiden's face when he rolls into this small town in Alabama and finds an interesting welcome from the town he will probably never forget. You will just have to read the story to find out. I thought the end was the best. I always love a story ...more

Okay, this one has me a little torn. I loved the town and I wanted more of it! I want to read Estelle and Devan's book, so if Lee could get on that, that would be great. At the same time, some of them were annoying. I needed to know more so that I loved the town as much as Hollee did. It needed to be a little longer and a little more flushed out.

Also, whenever one character interrupts another, it annoyed the crap out of me simply because of the format. It would look like this:

This book was an unexpected breath of fresh air! It was sweet, sexy, steamy, seductive and southern all at the same time. I don't want to elaborate on a review as I am afraid my enthusiasm for the characters, their world and the book would just give it all away. I will say this though... A Very Southern Affair will have you up late turning the pages, anxious to see what happens next. And when Hollee and Kaiden collide, more than sparks fly! I adore my autographed copy of this book! I give it 5 ...more

I have to be honest and say I was the editor for this book. But the credit ALL goes to Elaina and the magnificent stories she creates. As an editor, it's hard to enjoy stories anymore without wanting to edit them, but this one I had to keep reminding myself to EDIT because the story kept pulling me in. I highly recommend all of Elaina's books!
