Five years ago, Embry Jacobs ran...
She ran from a past that still hasn’t let her go, but her dream of becoming a lawyer is stronger than her fear of confronting that past. Embry’s sole focus is to get through law school—with the help of her best friend, Morgan—and make something of the broken girl she became. Not thinking about falling in love, being in a relationship or even entertaining the idea of romance, Embry is moving forward one day at a time.
Luke Brody is charming and sexy, and has a past of his own. He wants nothing more than to put his demons to rest and move on with his life. But, when Embry enters the picture, is he destined to repeat those same mistakes?
Blindsided by their instant attraction, neither Luke nor Embry are prepared for the feelings they’re developing. But will it all be for nothing?
Will they let their pasts destroy them, or will they risk everything to fight for their relationship when it all comes undone?

First, I must say how being a native Long Islander, I just LOVED all the Long Island/New York references!! And it's true that out East has the most amazing pies you will ever have!
This is the authors debut novel and it just blew me away. The story grabbed my attention from the beginning and the flow was perfect. I loved all the characters, connecting with them and I just enjoyed the amazing ride the author took me on.
Embry and Luke have this amazing connection and boy, does it get steamy.
I absolutely loved this one and recommend everyone to read it. The ending has me just dying for more and can't wait for the next book.
Southern Sexy is definitely your next book boyfriend!
“Wow,” Morgan said, following Embry’s line of sight. “Your man cleans up well.”
“Yeah, he does.”
The dean prattled on, but Embry’s eyes remained locked on Luke’s. She couldn't look away. He was jaw-droppingly handsome, and he was all hers. A jab to her ribs caused her to stop and glare at Morgan.
“Just doing my job.” Morgan gave Embry a dazzlingly smile.
“What job is that?”
“Bree-sitting. It’s a dirty job, but someone’s got to keep you from mounting him in the middle of a school-sponsored event.”
