Southern Comfort is the second book in Natasha Madison’s Southern Series and after reading the first, I was looking forward to Casey and Olivia’s story.

Olivia is the best friend of Casey’s sister, Kallie. After her ex-fiancé did some really bad things and put her on some bad people’s radar, Olivia temporarily relocated to the small town Kallie is from. Olivia and Casey have chemistry from the moment they first meet, but there is a lot going on in Olivia’s life.

I got to handed to the author. She did not only wrote one but two books with stupid shallow characters in this one series.
In this book everyone and their mama cried even the damn fly.. 😂😂

The heroine cried 4 times in just one page, lost count how many times she and everyone were leaking from their eyes. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Not to mention how both were acting like teenagers. Sit the fuck down and talk about your damn fucking feelings. They were assuming shit about each other and it drove me to the damn wall!

Natasha Madison has done it again. I enjoyed Southern Chance, the first book in the series and was looking forward to Southern Comfort. I didn’t think she would have been able to top book one, but she surprised me by delivering a tale filled with raw passion, romance and suspense. Although this installment features a different couple, its best that the books be read in order as the story lines and the characters are interconnected. 

The focus of this installment is on Olivia and Casey, whom reade

"You look perfect," I say, and when she looks over at me her whole face lights up. "You know, in all this time, no one has ever said that to me," she says, looking back in the mirror. "I was told I'm beautiful, and outstanding, exquisite, but I was never perfect."

I am going to make this short and sweet - get to the point and walk away. I was hoping that Southern Chance was a one off problem, so I jumped into Southern Comfort hoping that the issues I had with the first book w

Well my idiocy is no secret. I picked up this book thinking it was Beau and Savannah's book and I was so excited for their story, I was actually a little disappointed to realise that this one was Olivia and Casey's. Not that I wasn't looking forward to this one, just that I had hyped myself up for the secrets, lies and betrayals I'm expecting from the next one.

Once I sucked it up and read a few pages of this one I was all good. Casey was a bit of a sweetheart with a surprise double life that I w

Natasha Madison threw me for a loop with Southern Comfort and I'm not mad about it. This is book two in her Southern Series and reads as a standalone. Casey is Kallie's brother from Southern Chance, and Olivia is her roommate! Best friends brother and all that. GIMME!

If you've read Souther Chance you know that Olivia and Casey had an instant connection. We didn't know quite how close they'd gotten in that story and wow was I ready for it!

Casey Barnes never thought he would find his other half but when Olivia, Kallies BF crashes his house and his heart he knows she belongs to him. But Casey decides to ignore it because he feels he has nothing to offer Olivia- the city girl. Olivia's past caught up with her and though bringing it to Casey's Homefront, she was never alone because her cowboy was there to take care of her.

Yes there was drama and mystery but the intense chemistry between Casey & Olivia was unbelievably HOT and it was

Southern Romance | Romantic Suspense

Southern Comfort is the second interconnected standalone in the Southern series. If you’ve read the first book (Southern Chance) then you’ll remember the small cliffhanger that leads into Casey and Olivia’s story which is this one. The roller coaster of emotions I felt from that cliffhanger was NOTHING compared to the drama in this one and I ate it up. Natasha can write some funny books, but also has a kn

Olivia and Casey were first introduced in Southern Chance and it was obvious that they had a huge amount of attraction towards each other. Olivia was not used to the southern cowboy charm that Casey seemed to ooze and she was also a bit wary of it. I mean, do men like him really exist or is this just an act?

Olivia’s life has been upended by her cheating ex and his dodgy, illegal dealings. Her bestie Kallie has moved them both home to her family farm where she can lay low for a while until hopefu

Casey is the perfect Southern gentleman!! He sounded completely yummy in the last book and that certainly carried over to this one.

I love Olivia’s spunk and even though she had in the past been a pretty famous model, she was humble and a bit insecure. It made her really likable!

When the first book in the series ended rather suddenly on a bit of a cliffhanger (although both books can be read as standalones), I was really excited to read Casey & Olivia’s story.

BLESS MY HEART! If Casey's swoony southern charm doesn't sweep you away, the suspense surrounding Olivia is sure to knock you off your feet. Either way, I was an instant goner for this story!

About Southern Comfort:

Southern Comfort is the second book in Natasha Madison's Southern Series. This novel is told in both Casey and Olivia's point of view.

Olivia is on the run from her past, but as we all know, eventually your past has a way of finding you and biting you in the ass. Now Olivia has some ser

Another story that pulled way more emotion out of me than I expected and I LOVE IT! I would say you can read this book as a standalone, but be warned, there is a lot of interconnection with the characters and the story-line so you might just want to start at the beginning. Do with that information as you will …

Even with all the dramatic angst built into the storyline, it was the chemistry between Casey and Olivia that really glued me to this story. I could not get enough of it! Their journey

Ok, again I am wondering what happened to my “sweet” Natasha. Because let me tell you . . .

Southern Comfort is the second book in the Southern Series by Natasha Madison and if you think Book 1, Southern Chance is AMAZING just wait until you get your hands on Book 2, Southern Comfort! My heart is still racing and still wanting more. There just never seems to be enough of her words.

There were so many questions left unresolved in Southern Chance. The who, what, where, why and when of all the drama

I really enjoyed this second book in the series. There was so much mystery but hints about these two characters that I was so ready for. Casey, wow there was so much more to him than what we thought. He was dominant and sexy but caring and romantic. Olivia was a good mixture of vulnerability at times but strength when needed. She was quite the woman you could look up to.

This story was riveting with mystery but also steam and romance.

Southern Comfort is book 2 in the Southern Series by Natasha Madison and follows Olivia & Casey who we met in book 1 Southern Chance. Even though this is a series of interconnected standalones I really think to get the full story behind each character and couple you should read these books in order.

At the end of book 1 we got a soft cliffhanger that leads us straight into book 2. I already knew I like Olivia & Casey together and was super excited for their book & I thoroughly en

After reading Southern Chance I immediately jumped into this Book. Similar to SC, I loved these characters and their stories. Casey and Olivia are awesome together. I didn’t think it had enough angst to get the feels, but overall it was a good read.

Southern Comfort is book 2 in the Southern Series. Although it can be read as a standalone, why would you want to. Natasha Madison's stories grab the reader, and makes you not want to stop until you're on the last page and then beg for more.
Southern Comfort tells the story of Casey, the cowboy, former horse rider turned techy. He is taken by Olivia from the start, but knows she is only here with his sister temporarily.

The second book in Madison’s Southern series, this is a surprisingly emotional, beautifully romantic love story with great chemistry and lots of swoon. I loved it!

Casey and Olivia’s story started in the first book of the series, Southern Chance. They met when Olivia found herself in trouble due to her shady ex-fiance, and her best friend, Kallie (heroine of the first book) brought her to her small home town to hide out. Casey is Kallie’s older brother, and from the moment he laid eyes

I was expecting a cowboy romance but I got so much more in Southern Comfort. Casey and Olivia's story is packed with mystery and I wasn't expecting it. That was definitely my favorite part of this book: the mysterious plot.
Olivia is in a lot of trouble and because of that she's temporarily living in Casey's house, her best friend's brother. Casey is trying to protect her from the drama her ex fiancé dragged her into, when suddenly there's not only drama... Olivia is in real danger.

Natasha knocked it out of the park with book #2 in her brand new Southern series.

As we know at the end of book #1 well....if you haven't read Kallie and Jacob's book I don't want to spoil it because this is definitely a series you're going to want to read in order.
Casey and Olivia's story starts right where the other ends. I was team Jacob, but after reading Southern comfort I'm totally team Casey.
I loved this book, it had a just the right amount of suspense, angst, and a helluva lot of heat.

Southern Comfort is everything I love about Natasha Madison’s writing. Sweet, suspenseful, wonderful characters with angst and a beautiful emotional connection. Olivia is running away from her previous life. She has come to town to escape the trouble her ex husband has gotten her into but unfortunately for her it follows her to her new life. Casey is the epitome of a southern charmer. He is fiercely protective over Olivia and will do anything to keep her from harms way. He is hiding s

5 Star review of Southern Comfort (Southern Series #2) by Natasha Madison

The second book in this inter connected series and was just as enjoyable as the first book.
I love small town romance, it has become one of my favourite genres to read over the last couple of years. This is Olivia (Kallie’s best friend) and Kallie’s brother Casey’s love story and oh what a fabulous story Southern Comfort is.

Southern Chance ended will unanswered questions and I was anxious to see if these would be resolved

Olivia never had family sure she had a mom but she cared more about appearances then her daughter. So being on the ranch and seeing Kallie's family, her parents....her hot brother/cowboy Casey, has her thrown for loop.

While she nows when it is save she must leave and while Casey knows this too the two slowly go from friends to more to much much more and when her troubles find her it brings out the true Casey, the one he hides from most people. He will do anything and everything to keep her safe

The only thing I kept thinking while reading this, is that the heroine should definitely see a doctor at some point as there might be something wrong with her tear ducts....she forever had her eyes brimming with tears, or was sobbing or my fave...the lone tear running down her cheek....girlfriend you need to get this checked out asap...😢😭🤷‍♀️ otherwise a ok read!!

This time it's Kallie's best friend, Olivia, and her brother Casey's journey. Olivia came with Kallie back to Kallie's hometown to hide from the trouble her ex brought to her. That trouble continues into Southern Comfort and boy is it serious trouble. But she has Casey, hot cowboy turned uh let's say skilled with a computer guy, whose protective tendencies flare up when he meets his sister's gorgeous friend.

Southern Comfort starts right where the epilogue left us in Southern Chance. I LOVED the suspenseful storyline. It kept me wanting to turn the pages to see how Olivia and Casey’s story was going to turn out.

Southern Comfort is the second book in the Southern series. It picks up where it left off in book one with Casey and Olivia’s story and boy is filled with action and drama.

Protective, alpha cowboy who is also wicked intelligent with computers, yes please. I loved Casey. I loved his determination to be more than just a ‘hick’ and control and own his future and life.

Poor, poor Olivia and what she has dealt with. After her controlled and affectionless upbringing with her horrible mother,
