I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book, not only because it is by the lovely and talented M. Never but after I read an excerpt and experienced the smooth talking southern boy steaming up a supply closet and calling someone “sugar”, I just knew I had to experience The Southern Night series! Before long I was completely enraptured with Kamdyn and Laney's emotional and heated story, hoping that the push and pulls of life, jealousy, and celebr

Kamdyn Ellis was an All-star athlete and Alabama's greatest hope. All the girls wanted him and all the boys wanted to be him. After being injured during a game, his future became uncertain. Thankfully the city girl he was secretly in love with was there to help him to pick up the pieces. This tale tells of their inescapable love, a love that not even time and distance could kill. This sweet series was such an unexpectedly welcome departure from anything I've ever read from M. Never. I enjoyed th ...more

When an author writes a book about your hometown of Nowhere, Alabama you have to sit up and take notice, right?!

This is a super cute story about the type of love that stands strong over time and adversity. It's sweet and emotional. I particularly enjoyed the beginning of the story. Getting to know Kamdyn and Laney in high school and following their relationship over time was quite entertaining. The story resonated with me on a personal level. I had a so much in common with the characters, so th

The Southern Nights Series is the sweet and sassy side of M Never. The plot was well written and I loved the characters. The connection between Kam and Laney is instant and you can feel that they are meant for each other.

I loved One Southern Night. I know a lot of people aren't fond of novellas, but I love them. Sometimes you just want a quick story - a bit of a pick me up - and OSN is perfect for that. The only problem I have with novellas is that I always want more. :)

You can always trust MNever to come up with an engaging story complete with super awesome characters , a touch of angst and a whole lot of super hot sex.
Kamdyn Ellis is a high school football Star. He drips sweet southern charm and everybody falls in love with him, except Laney summers who's immune , or at least tries to.
It's a coming of age love story, very hot, very passionate and full of memorable scenes

All I am going to say is that this book is about the guy, Kam. The girl is just an accessory to him. She helps him and supports him... But the other way around? Not so much. I kept wondering what would he do if something happened to her , and a part of me hoped that would be the conflict in one of the three stories. No such luck.
3 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 Stars! Sports romance, football star and his “Lemon” finds love on and off starting in high school through college and after. Ok read.

Recommended to book bruin by: Bookworm Between the Sheets
Southern Nights is a sweet football romance with a bit of drama thrown in, broken into three novellas spanning several years. The story starts when Kamdyn (Kam) and Laney are seniors in High School and follows them through college and a few years afterwards. There's a bit of an enemies to lovers vibe between this city girl and country boy in the beginning and I liked how their relationship evolved over the years through the ups and downs. They were so young when they started and just on the cusp ...more

I'm not gonna lie, it was so weird reading this after having read her ménage and dark romance books 😂 but I loved the sweetness and lighter side of her writing! These two characters were perfect for each other and the chemistry between them was really well written! I liked how it took place in three different times and by the end of it, it couldn't have been better. Thank you M for the copy! Make sure you guys add this to your tbr! As well as all her other books!!

This was a bit rushed, and a little too sweet. Cliche, and kind of gives women a bad name. IMO


Let your man follow his dreams, and freaking support him.

Love is wonderful and beautiful, but it's not EVERYTHING. It's not going to complete you.

Every one of the break ups in the book were, for lack of a better word, dumb.


The trust in the book is non existent, I guess I just believe that everyone deserves the benefit of the doubt.

Now this hickey thing,  I got a hickey looking thing from a pain

One Sexy Football Quarterback and a Sassy City Girl add a Steamy Hot Romance and you have a must read! Love Kam and Laney in The Southern Nights Series!

I am a huge fan of M Nevers work and have been ever since the decadence series. The Southern Nights Series is a bit different then what I'm use to by her, not as dark but, equally engaging and intriguing throughout the book.

The book is told in three parts starting from high school, then college and life after.

Part 1 is Laney moved back to Alabama from New York where she meets all star quarterback Kam. Laney refuses to fall for Kams playboy ways but tragedy brings each other in their orbit Laney

By: M. Never
4 Stars

Laney Summers has moved to small town Alabama from New York. Finding herself the target of the high school star quarterback. Not wanting to become one of his senior year notches, she try’s very hard to be immune to his southern charm!

Following an accident, Laney becomes Kam’s tutor and this is where her immunity fails. Building a friendship at first, learning all about each other, the relationship builds.

This is a steamy, pretty predictable at times q

Ugh. Such a sweet read. LOVE IT!

If you're looking for mix of high school sweethearts and second chance romance then this is your book. What I've read from M. Never before has been pretty smutty, and really taboo. THIS story was so sweet I nearly got a toothache. Yes there are some angsty parts. Some parts that make you sad, and there are even still some hot and steamy moments! At the heart of this story though, is just that, HEART. This is the sweet forever kind of romance. Such a good read! Hig
This was my first book by this author. I found it free on Amazon today and the blurb caught my attention so I decided to start right away. I'm currently in a sports romance kinda vibe.

Kam is the football star in all Alabama, the boy that everyone knows his name and is treated like royalty. He is the golden boy. Despite all that cliche, he is a really good QB and it's quickly becoming the best. With that, he sure is an arrogant and self-centered jock, but when a city girl arrives, everything chan

Engaging and insightful 4.5 star read…

This is such an engaging and bittersweet sports romance series…over the course of 3 novellas the on/off romance between Kam a prodigy/star Quarter Back and Laney a smart independant young woman unfolds….. the path to true love has never been more rocky as their relationship develops, unravels and rebuilds again and again over the progression of the series… Although this is predominantly a typical sports romance the author also empathetically explores the wor

This was my first read from M. Never. To say that I loved this book is an under statement. It was so well written making it easy to get lost in this world. I loved going through every stage of love with these two. From friends to lovers, second chance romance to happily ever after. The story was set at the perfect pace. It was just enough for the reader to feel a bit of angst but not enough to drive us crazy. The pace of the book wasn't the only thing that kept me reading, it was really the

If your looking for a sweet and quick read then The Southern Night Series by M. Never is a must read.
M. Never is the author of one of my favorite series, The Decadence After Dark series which is hot, full of angst and kinky as hell. So when I started reading Southern Nights I was surprised, but it was definitely a good surprise.
As much as I love a dark and twisted story, I also love a quick and easy romance book that had me swooning over Kam and rooting for Laney.

Kam is a football god - star quarterback and header to Alabama - Crimson Tide as a Freshman Quarterback. Life is good for him. Until an accident puts him on the side line. The one good thing to come out of the accident is Laney Summers. Laney has been is Science Lab partner and other than that has had nothing to do with him. But once she becomes his tutor... she will finally get to see the real Kam Ellis and maybe just maybe finally become his girl.

It was ok, considering the awesome reviews that it got, I did expect more..
There are three parts to this book (series?), which you can qualify as in high school, in college, and post-grad. All three sections are pretty short, so this book is a quick-read. My favorite was the first part, the high school one, where Kam and Laney got to know each other.

Although I didn't hate the book, I didn't love it either. I didn't think Kam, or Kamdyn's name fit him at all, which bothered me the whole book (names are a small thing that can completely ruin books for me). The reasons Ka

From the out, I was disappointed in this one. Unfortunately, Lemon and Kam failed to grab my attention, and the novella length mean that M. Never glossed too much over parts of these people's lives. Indeed, I'm not sure there were many scenes at all which focused on one or the other of them, instead focusing almost solely on their re

I'm a huge fan of M. Never. Actually Moto was my favorite book of 2016, so I was thrilled to find she was releasing (or re-releasing) a football book, because...well...FOOTBALL. I went into this book expecting great things and I got...really good things, if not quite great.

I really loved both characters. Laney was a great heroine and you don't come across those as often as you should in romance. Far from a star-struck jersey chaser, she gave as good as she got with Kam and she was all about Kam
