All I wanted to do was run away, I never expected to crash into his arms...
After leaving the city life behind to escape my loveless marriage, I moved to small town Havenbarrow for a fresh start.
What I didn’t expect was to find myself drawn to the town’s black sheep.
They called him troubled. Cold. A man with a dark past.
What everyone seemed to miss about Jax was the splashes of light in his eyes. The random acts of kindness he performed when no one was watching. The way he made me smile and laugh.
Jax helped unpack the baggage I’d been carrying around with me. He was patient with my pain and gentle with my scars. He was the stillness during my hurricane.
Yet when both of our pasts came back to haunt our present days, we realized quickly that sometimes love stories didn’t end the way we’d hoped.
Sometimes you were left with only the damage from the storm.

Now and then I will come across a story that resonates deeply with me. A story which not only wrecked me, but gave me hope. Southern Storms by Brittainy Cherry did that and more. This a story that will break your heart and then slowly put it back together. It’s a story about two broken characters whom readers can relate to in every way. It’s the kind of story that would make the reader wish she could get their hands on the persons who contributed to their brokenness and deal with them accordingly. It grabs the reader from the start and keeps one engaged to the end.

As stated earlier, the story featured characters which readers would find relatable. There were a few which were detestable and then there were those one could not help but love. The protagonists, Kennedy and Jax, headed the list of likeable characters followed by seventeen-year-old Connor, who spiced up the story with his wit and charm. His personality and positive outlook balanced out the heaviness of the story. One could not refrain from laughing whenever he made an appearance.

Southern Storms is a story of second chances, friendship, acceptance, loss, healing, forgiveness and love. It is a heart breaking, funny and sweet, small town romance. I can’t go into any more details as this a story that readers should go into blindly. Therefore, my recommendation to fans of contemporary romance featuring broken characters is, do yourself a favour and get a copy. However, prepare yourself for an emotional journey.
