Coming back home was supposed to be normal.

Not that my life had ever been normal, but it was getting there.

Then I opened the door and found a man—broken, bloodied, and fighting for his life.

I don't know why, but I said I would take care of him. I had to. Needed to.

He was a mystery, showing up from out of nowhere. But he might have already stolen my heart.

Mayson Carey

The only thing I have ever wanted in my entire life was to forget who I was. Joining the military helped me do this.

Keep your head down and glide through life was my new motto. No strings, no relationships. Nothing.

Everything was working until a knock at the door had me face-to-face with the reason I was running.

So I ran—I fell into her arms, and she fell into my heart, but I know better than to think it'll last.

Some secrets have a way of coming back and haunting us, no matter how much we try to bury them.

  • My new favorite in this series!

    By Jamilagiel
    My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This series is getting better and better. I love all the books in this series but I think this is my new favorite. The story is angsty and very suspenseful. It was not a easy read but it’s also beautiful and very good written. My heart broke for Mayson and what he went through. I wanted to hug him. Love Chelsea. She’s strong and new what she wanted. I read it in one sitting and couldn’t put it down. Now I can’t wait for Quinn and Willow’s book.
  • Her treaty for the emotions to take over!

    Southern Heart is continuing to give us the next generation form the original cast. Next up is Chelsea’s book. She’s been in love with Mayson for years. But he’s her big brothers best friend and the bro code says that’s a no no. Little does she know Mayson has fought his feelings for his fiends little sister for years. But he needs her help when he’s beaten and left for dead. Chelsea is determined to nurse him back to health and not let her feelings get in the way. Mayson can not act on his feeling for Chelsea because he feels he’s not good enough for her. But what happens when emotions bubble over and the inevitable attraction take hold? If you love sweet, emotional, action packed, steamy love stories thiamine is waiting for you to find out!
  • Loved It!!

    My heart is beyond thrilled that Natasha Madison wrote Southern Heart (Southern #5) and this new generation is better than ever. Neither Mayson nor Chelsea expected to fall for each other but when the sparks start to fly, it’s absolute magic. The broken hero and southern sweetheart are not only down to earth characters who truly deserve all the goodness, but their chemistry is very intense. I could feel the connection through the pages and I was rooting for them. And the passionate, steamy (I’ve said this several times about Natasha Madison and I’ll say it again, she never ever disappoints me when it comes to delivering HOT and enticing sex scenes) engaging and mystery filled storyline is amazing. So far, every book in this series has deep, dark secrets that you will never anticipate. Southern Heart is no exception and once again, I was absolutely stunned when the secrets were revealed. I devoured this book and there were times when my pulse raced as I was completely invested and in suspense waiting to read what would happen next. I’m definitely looking forward to reading Southern Heat, the next book in this series.
  • So obsessed with this series!

    By Samantha B. Sokol
    So obsessed with this series! The beginning of this story had me hooked with suspense when Mayson arrives at Chelsea’s brother’s house beaten and bloody, and I was dying to find out who was behind it and what would happen. Chelsea just returned home from college and is ready to start her career in nursing, and with Mayson’s injuries it gives her the perfect situation to put her schooling to work. Mayson’s story literally broke my heart and finding out who’s behind his attempted murder had my blood boiling. As Mayson and Chelsea’s family work to hunt down who’s behind everything as well as putting a plan together, they end up unfolding more than what’s on the surface, and how it looks like Mayson has a double life – it was a wild ride and putting a plan in place on how to catch him is even more wild. It was a little predictable for Chelsea to end up involved at the end, but thankfully Mayson thought it might happen eventually and prepared for it, and it is exactly how he’s able to save her life. I love the connection between these two and how sweet they are while Chelsea is also being a total spitfire. The end of this story eludes to the next book and I cannot wait for the continuation of this series and these characters! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
  • My favorite of all of hers!

    Natasha Madison can write an emotional-angst filled-can’t-put down story like no other. She takes us on an emotional rollercoaster in Southern Heart. Mayson and Chelsea’s story will grab you by your heartstrings from the first few pages. Then as read about these two characters, you fall so deep in love with them. My heart felt like is was crushing during some of the scenes. These two have a love like no other. Chelsea will fight for Mayson. She will fight for her heart and what a beautiful fight she gives. And Mayson is so strong, he’s a fighter and protector. Mayson’s story will have you in tears. These two were made for each other. Natasha always takes us on a emotional journey, she makes us fall in love with her characters. This story is a tortured man who finds his light in all his darkness. My newest favorite book of 2021. Highly recommended. *I was provided with an advanced copy of this book by the author in exchange for my voluntary and honest review.*
