Southern Charmed by Melanie Jacobson + $25 and Book Giveaway!

Lila Mae Guidry is a Southern girl through and through. As a fourth-generation Latter-day Saint in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, she’s proud of her heritage as both a Southerner and a Saint—and she doesn’t take kindly to people who disparage either. Ten years ago, Max Archer was just that kind of jerk. As the mission president’s son, Max spent his entire three years mocking the South . . . and teenage Lila. After Max’s family moved away, Lila forgot about her sworn enemy. Almost.

When a new job brings a grown-up Max back to Baton Rouge, Lila is less than thrilled with his reappearance, especially since everyone seems intent on throwing her together with this old adversary. Yet fight as she may, Lila soon realizes resistance is futile—their connection is undeniable. Max embodies everything she wants in a man—except perhaps the most important thing—her life is rooted in the city she loves, but his dreams are bigger than Baton Rouge. With such mismatched visions of the future, Max and Lila are faced with a life-altering decision: jeopardize their aspirations or risk losing love.

Can you hear my heart right now?  It's breathing out a very contented <sigh>.  That's because it's happy and full of all kinds of romantic notions.  Seriously.  It might be on overload.  <sigh>

This is contemporary romance at it's best for me.  Witty dialogue, playful banter, characters who are flawed but so endearing and a vibrant setting full of food descriptions that will make your mouth water.  What more could you want?!?!

I love when I get butterflies in my stomach while reading a book.  This one gave me some butterflies and to quote the book, "My heart did a Cajun jitterbug."  

I probably can't tell you anything better than that.  I loved this book!

Content:  Clean, LDS fiction (some religious elements specific to the LDS religion)

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
