Even the town’s black sheep needed a friend sometimes

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 come back to haunt our present days, we realized quickly that sometimes loves stories didn’t end the way we’d hoped.

Sometimes you were left with only the damage from the storm.

Book One in New Compass Series of Standalone Novels

Kennedy & Jax.
Both very sad and broken with a lot of heartbreaking events in their past.
They knew each other as kids and now they live in the same town again.
Kennedy just left her idiot husband after some very hard times and Jax has been in town all his life. He's the town's bad sheep. The grumpy plumber.
But as soon as he sees Kennedy again - his grumpiness disappears and his heart starts working again.
Same with Kennedy.
Now those two only have to heal enough to be able to fight for their forever happily ever after ...

Another beautiful Brittainy book!
I loved it.
Heartbreaking. Funny. Adorable. Sweet.
Small town. Crazy people. Hilarious.
Romance. Grief. Beauty. Hope.
A perfect romance. There's nothing much more I could say about it.
I loved reading it. I kinda got a few vibes from previous Brittainy books, but it was a really adorable romance. Almost a second-chance romance I would say, but they weren't old enough and together long enough back then to have a real relationship. But it's definitely a second-chance-BFF romance.
I also wouldn't mind reading Connor's story one day - once he's old enough and a billionaire! ☺

SOUTHERN STORMS was another beautiful Brittainy Cherry love story. Heartbreaking. Funny. Romantic. Adorable. Small-Townish.
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Jax - this one is MINE! ☺

ARC received for an honest review

Ms Cherry has done it again with Southern Storms..
Long lost friendships, full of heartaches and tragedies, I couldn't help but be fully engrossed in Kennedy and Jax's story.
The grumpy guy and the heartbroken girl who find love when they are least expecting it.
The small town vibe, with everyone knowing everyone elses business resonated with me, and I could put local names from my town to the characters in this book (you know who you are, people!).  I wanted to laugh, I wanted to cry, I wanted to slap the crap out of some obnoxious people.
But mostly I wanted our lovelies to fall in love.
There are great secondary characters - we all need a Joy and a Connor in our lives.  I am hoping we get more of Connor later in the series.
This book does give of vibes of earlier Brittainy C Cherry books, but that's no a bad thing to me.
I am looking forward to where this series takes us.
