Some women are bad. Some women are a bad idea. The best ones are both...

This was my first read by author Robin Covington and also the second book in The Boys are Back in Town series. Coming into a new series and reading book 2 first, worried me a bit, but I soon realized that it didn’t matter at all, because this book can be easily read as stand-alone.

This book captured m

I was lucky enough to read an ARC of this book and it has all the sexy sizzle of the first in the series! If you're looking for intrigue, well-drawn sexual tension and smokin' hot bedroom scenes that make that tension worthwhile, you're in the right place with this book. Loved Lucky and Taylor!
Lucky has spent years serving his country, first as a marine and then as a black ops specialist, he has seen and done horrific things and now he's ready to return home and take over the family farm. He is looking for peace but he also wants to settle down and marry the woman of his dreams. Taylor is his best friend's little sister and therefore should be off limits but the two of them have been secret on and off partners for years. They've always had great chemistry but the time has never been r ...more
Buddy read with Sarah

A series with sexy southern boys?? Sign me up!!

I was looking forward to reading the second book in the series and it was soooo worth the wait!!!

I really enjoyed this book, but sometimes wanted to smack Taylor for not growing a pair earlier on the story!! Poor Lucky he had to wait for this HEA!!

From the first sentence to the last page I couldn't put this book down. If it's even possible Robin Covington outdid herself. Both characters Lucky and Taylor have you cheering for them to get together. My only disappointment the book ended and now I have to wait awhile for the next one in the series. Keep them coming!

His Southern Temptation manages to be a sweet romance with liberal hot, steamy sex in multiple locations and a good measure of suspense. You will absolutely fall in love with these characters. David ""Lucky"" Landon is a former special-ops Marine that has returned to his hometown to take over the family farm. He is staying at the home of one of his best friends when he is awakened by the sound of a bullet being chambered near his head. He disarms the person and finds Mary-Taylor Elliott. Lucky a ...more

The first chapter was explosive and this book just got better from there with many twists and turns. The plot was well written, as was the dialogue, which illustrated how good these two were together and how much they helped each other get through whatever was thrown their way. Too bad the heroine didn’t see how fortunate she was to have such a good man until it was almost too little, too late. Lucky wasn’t going to wait around forever. The sex scenes were extremely passionate and illustrated ho ...more

An honest review due to being given an ARC from the publisher. Okay so honestly it was just not my cup of tea. And I don't even blame the writer's skills or abilities for this it's not something that I should have picked up for myself to read which is something I found out halfway through out the novel. It's got a guy named Lucky which annoys me to no end and a TON of Southern charm. This makes me wonder two things: 1. do I just hate southern charm or 2. do I think that the writer laid in that s ...more

When I turned the last page of this book, the thought that ran through my head was " What a beautiful love story". There's very hot sex, heartbreak, danger , and anger. But the love between these two damaged people pulled me in.

Taylor Elliott is Teague Elliott's sister. We met Teague in the first novel by Ms. Covington. A Night of Southern Comfort. We also met the rest of The Boys, but this is David ( Lucky) Landon's story. Taylor is known best around town for her escape from her own wedding, by

I found Robin Covington on Twitter and as always, I check out what the books of the authors I follow have written. Sometimes I like them, sometimes I can't even get through but then on the rare occasion I find a book that I just fall in love with. His Southern Temptation is one of those. I read Ms. Covington's previous book, A Night in Southern Comfort and enjoyed it immensely. I missed her characters when I was finished, so much so that I tweeted her and asked when her next book was out. Her re ...more

Sadly, I did not like this book as much as I wanted to and skimmed parts. I just did not like Taylor. I hate when I am rooting for my hero to get a new woman, a better woman, a woman worth his effort and especially worth his body. Lucky has bedded plenty of women, including Taylor. But for him, Taylor was never grouped into his one night stands. He seemed to know somewhere in the back of his mind that he wanted more from Taylor. But she has been unwilling and incapable of true intimacy. That is ...more
What a great book, loved it. David "Lucky" Langdon is now out of the marines and is home to help his parents by buying the farm and settling down. Taylor is back in town for three weeks to help her brother clean and pack family home. Teague is Taylor's brother. Jack is Lucky's friend.

What a way for Lucky and Taylor to meet again. She's holding a gun on him, he's waiting for a chance to take her. Of course the house is dark and it takes a few minutes to realize who they are.

He wants something permanent. She didn't.
He is her first crush. She is his best friend's little sister.
He means to settle down in their hometown. She already left it, dramatically.
They so in to each other. They already have occasional affair, before he retired from some black op and as Marine.
When their path crossed in their small hometown, he'd do anything to convince her to stay.

I like so many thing about this book. Especially how the character's growth. The plot is believable but not shal

For some reason I thought this was the 1st book in the “Boys are Back in Town” Series, but I was mistaken. So, I began this series with Book 2 and it took me a few chapters to realize who the “boys” were. I was able to piece together most of it, but I would think Book 1 probably explains the relationship between these 4 men with more details.
This books centers around Lucky and Taylor. The plot was rather typical as one of the “boys”,Lucky,an ex-Marine, soon to be a farmer, falls for his friend’
His Southern Temptation is a fun read, but what really makes it special is Robin Covington's superb writing. She puts you right into the first scene, where you happily stay until you get to "The End" and start pining for the next book. Her Boys are Back series is on my auto-buy list, and should be on yours.
Absolutely awesome! Lucky and Taylor were just the couple that I needed read about! Their love affair over the past years built up to this amazing book. Cannot wait to read about the next two boys!!!

3.5 Robin Covington does such a great job creating a fun and interesting grip of characters. I really enjoyed this bit of Southern style story. It is hot and heartbreaking.
I love this, though I thought I won't.

If Jackson made me spazz like hell, here comes Lucky making me cry damn hard. . .now, I am so EXCITED of ELLIOT. *v*
I really enjoyed this one. I like the author's voice and I loved the chemistry between the h/h. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

Lucky and Taylor have been hooking up for years. Their relationship is an at the right place, right time thing.

I’m a big fan of lovers reunited and when I came across the opportunity to review Robin Covington’s His Southern Temptation, I couldn’t resist. I haven’t read the first book in the series, A Night of Southern Comfort, and while I don’t think it’s necessary to read it before reading His Southern Temptation, I think it would help because you’ll be familiar with a lot of the characters mentioned. That being said, His Southern Temptation, is a good a standalone book.

Like any person growing up in a s

I loved, loved, loved this book. I loved the first book from this series and Lucky was my favorite secondary character. I was so happy that he was getting his book next. I was eagerly awaiting this book and was so happy to start it.
This is a great story of 2nd chance love. This is about Lucky a local guy, who had a crazy miltary career as a Marine. He was bone tired and was ready to get out so he came home. He gets together with Jack to help with with a missing person. He goes to a strip club t

This was a good solid book. It took me a little while to get into it, but I think part of that was because I had not read the first one in the series, so perhaps there was some history that would have made more sense to me if I had read A Night of Southern Comfort. This was my first book by Robin Covington and I enjoyed her storytelling.

The characters are well developed and I really enjoyed Lucky and Taylor. They both had a lot to overcome to find their happy ever after. I also felt like Robin

This is one of those reads that just flies by!

So when they both ended up in their home town at the same time it didn't take long for that old spark to blaze again. Only problem is that Lucky is all in but Taylor has no intention on staying in the small town. She has plans in Hawaii. Can Lucky convince her that they ar
