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

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.

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!!

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

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

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

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.
Kimberly Lawson

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 paintball

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

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.

When the All Star Athlete and bad boy met the sassy city girl who was immune to his charms, sparks will fly.

The thing is, M. Never can definitely writes insanely sexy smutty books and I like it! This story about these two? Smoking hot.

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

What a great story..

The one thing I love about this story it is show how love can grow. Kam and Laney start out getting together in their senior year in high school but like young love it was immature and still had a ways before it could grow. No matter the fact of them not being together I believe they still loved each other. In this story you will get to watch their love grown and mature.

This story shows the struggles love can go though. It also show the strength that one can get from the per

M. Mever knows what to write because the stories seem to pour out and capture you in an instant and leave a mark in your soul. Kam and Laney love story is one that is not easy but its beautiful in its heartbreak and their fight to get their HEA.

I was pulled right into this series of stories. The stories have laughs, pain, secrets, and heartbreak.

This is Laney and Kamdyn’s story. Kam has it all he is a quarterback, bad boy, and player off the field. Everyone wants to either be him or date him all except one-person Laney Summers. She is immune to all his charms. She can resist him not matter that the chemistry between them if off the charts. But an injury is about to change all that.

It doesn't matter what M. Mever writes, I always find myself drawn in and completely devouring each story. Southern Nights being no different. I absolutely loved Kam and Laney. This story even being very different to the other M Never books still has the same electricity between the characters that will keep you enthralled throughout.

There's some steamy scenes that will leave you needing a cold shower, as well as a perfect blend of angst along with all the heat. I got lost in the love story bet

The Southern Nights Series by M. Never is a wonderful book. This is about Kam And Laney and their complex love story that begins in the senior year of high school. Kam is the quarterback. Oozing southern charm and a brashness that comes from youth, being a successful jock and having girls fall at his feet; is knocked for a loop the first time he sees new girl Laney.

M. Never's Southern Nights series is sweet and romantic and oh so reminiscent of the feelings and emotions of young love. I couldn't help but be transported back in time to the days of high school and my first love. We're so young, it's all consuming, we're so naive, we assume we know, we forget to communicate and so easily jump to conclusions. Thank goodness we grow up.

This is a totally different kind of story than I've come to expect from the dark and gritty erotica that M. Never usually writ

These two seem so different southern boy and a city girl, but they see more in each other then what meets the eye. Laney is a sassy, hold her own city girl that sees heart in Kam.

This series will knock you off your feet. Kamdyn and Laney are wonderful. The story is full of emotion, with just the right amount of humor thrown in there. There were a couple turns that threw me off my game. I kept yelling at my Kindle! The storyline was incredible, with just the right balance of drama, passion, and sports. All three of which I LOVE!!! A very different change of pace from the darker romance that I also happen to love. I can't wait to see what is in store

Such a great romance! I'd say NA even though it started in high school. The characters were 18 when they met. I love books that are set in the South! This one is based around the religion in the South, FOOTBALL! A few secondary characters here and there but mainly focuses on H and h. This is actually a series so you're getting all 3 books in one here, thankfully because I loved being able to go from one to the other seamlessly.
