oh my...many things I question in this story
* editing required, missing words, incorrect words and spelling errors

* why do authors have the big "loose your virginity scene" with the female having multiple life altering orgasms?

* The heroine had a very traumatic event in her life, and during her recovery at a friends ranch, she falls in love with a childhood friend who is a "dominant", and the sexual situations might be questionable for the heroine's background.

* the heroine is a natural submissi

The author of Southern Romance needs to find a good editor to make this a five star story. The story line and character development are excellent but the use of wrong words is distracting and needs to be fixed. She has errors like since for sense, things spell check would not catch.

The story of Jade and Sara finding common ground for a relationship after the attack and being left for dead is beautiful. Jade has his own personal tragedy in his past too. The strong, sexy, quiet cowboy gives Sara j

A quick read that well I enjoyed reading. Jade and Sara I loved them together, "the view she was leaving was quite disturbing. To Jade's loins anyways. She had on a solid black bikini and even if she tried to readjust the back side of this one, it was meant to show it off." Jade he's really dominant, "answer me, baby or I won't let you have your way with my fingers in that tight little a** of yours. Come on, baby, tell me what you want." He's caring, "I'm going to give you a shower. Wash every ...more

I nearly didn't bother to finish this book.

The author can follow a plot line but the story was so full of inconsistencies with ideas just thrown in that were never really picked up and used.

The grammar was horrendous and made reading the book frustrating. The difference between 'to' and 'too' really isn't that diffult to grasp ( just one example). This book could have been better if it had been edited.

Could have been better...

While the story in this book is really good, it would have been so much better if there had been some proofreading/editing. Spelling and grammar errors detracted from the essence of the story.

So, while I enjoyed the story itself, it was hard to get through with the errors.

Get an editor

I am sure this would have been a fabulous story line but it was impossible to follow because there was absolutely no editing in this book. I think a high school student could have done a better job. I would truly like to give the story itself more than one star but I just can't get past the lack of editing.

This book was so unreal. Heroine was emotionally shattered then totally better. She would be frozen by fear and then just fine. A trip to a ranch is not a magical cure. After the Amazon characters finally get together it is just one sex scene after the other. Not my kind of Southern romance.

This was so bad. The storytelling felt like I was reading an article in a newspaper. A very long article that would never end, it went on and on in a dead voice in my head.

Would not recommend at all. Sorry.
