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.

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

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

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
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

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.

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

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.

Not being who people expect you to be, under pressure.

Escaping an elite soldier's past of having a job you can't tell anyone about, ever.

Originally published at Reading Reality

Lucky Landon and Taylor Elliott meet again at gunpoint. Not that they haven't met before in various compromising positions--this is just the first time that firearms have been involved.

And the first time they've entertained the possibility of hooking up in their home town. A typical small Southern home town where everybody knows everybody's business the second there's a whisper in the air.

A place they've both steered well clear of from the moment they were

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.

Holy smokiness! T his book is hot! I can just feel the attraction, heat and sparks coming off these two characters! Robin Covington does a wonderful job captivating me throughout the entire book. It was nice and steamy, always filled with some sort of drama. It was swoon-worthy and at some parts heartbreaking.

Taylor Elliot left her hometown and started a new life for herself all the way across the country. Now she is back home for a few weeks, wrapping up a few family matters, getting her money,

Robin Covington has once again given us a book with unforgettable lovable characters mixed with a side of suspense. I love her beautiful, yet very original writing style. She really has the ability to portray her characters emotions from an intimate perspective.

Lucky and Taylor are explosive together. They each have past demons that haunt their abilities to accept a future together, but they p

I received this book from a publicist in exchange of an honest review.

“Lucky” Landon, is a former Black Ops assassin who is finally out of that business and is starting a new slate back at his small hometown. His sexy, smart, protective alpha male that made this book as indulgent as it sounded. The last thing Lucky expected was to end up at gunpoint or that the person at the end of the gun would be his best friends little sister Taylor Elliot, a girl who plagues his mind and up until now his on

His Southern Temptation was such a fun and sexy read! The story of a guy who falls for his best friend's sister is one of my very favorites. I loved that Lucky and Taylor already had a long history and an established relationship. This history has the story beyond the "getting to know you" phase and into the heart of the story, Lucky convincing Taylor to take a chance on love.

Lucky Landon is my favorite kind of book guy. He's sexy (of course!), but also a genuinely good guy who cares a lot for

Lucky is in town to help a friend out with a missing person's case and to buy his family's farm so he can finally have somewhere to call home. He's blindsided by the appearance of his best friend's little sister and realizes this may be his last chance to make her his forever. They've always had a strong attraction and have acted on it many times over their past but he knows she doesn't want it to be anything other than scratching an itch. He is growly and possessive of her but at the same time ...more
