He’s sexy. He’s
southern. And he’s a superstar chef. Meet Elijah Jackson, my hot new neighbor…
From the outside
looking in? I’ve got it all. Prestigious job. Pretty house. And a perfect
boyfriend who proposed with the perfect ring.
But as beautiful as
my life looks on the outside, I feel like something’s missing. So I hop in my
car and head south. I’m hoping the thousand mile distance will clear my
mind–and give me time to work on the romance novel I secretly want to write.
Charleston, South
Carolina: home to stunning architecture, sultry accents, and–oh yeah–my new
neighbor, Elijah Jackson. A chef at one of the city’s most renowned
restaurants, he’s simultaneously intimidating and inviting. Especially when he
shows up at my door, shirtless, offering me homemade biscuits.
As if his abs for
days and inked up deliciousness aren’t enticing enough, he also encourages me
to chase down my dreams, one chapter at a time. And the chemistry between us?
Hotter than the kitchen at Eli’s restaurant.
But I still have a
life a thousand miles away. One I’ve worked really hard to build. And I don’t
know if I can just leave it all behind.
Romance novels
always end in happily ever after. But is one possible for a southern charmer
and this yankee girl?
is a slow burn, standalone romance. It’s the first book in the CHARLESTON HEAT
series, set in Charleston, South Carolina.

I really, really enjoyed this book. I have read a few of Jessica Peterson's books and she is quickly working her way up my must read list.

Southern Charmer has great characters that are fun and charming. Eli has swoon in spades and Olivia is the woman I want to be when I grow up. I felt the connection instantly and I was so lost in the story that I read it in one sitting.

This is really just a great book. There isn't a ton of drama and the characters feel genuine in a way that draws you in until you are wholly invested in their story. The author does such a great job of writing the city of Charleston that I dare you to not want to visit when you've turned the lat page.
