Sunny Shelly’s Review: Southern Hearts, by Emily Bowie

Title: Southern Hearts: An Oakport Beach Romance
Author: Emily Bowie
Genre: Best Friends Brother Romance
It was just a kiss.
A kiss from the preacher’s daughter.
And I loved every second of it.
I would take 8 seconds of my lips on hers over any bull ride, anytime, anywhere.
Each time I kissed my younger sister’s best friend she still managed to slip through my fingers and I couldn’t seem to keep her. I thought I had time.
When the news of her broken engagement runs rampant through town, I’m ready this time. This time I won’t lose her.
But when the truth about her break up surfaces, will she still look at me the same way?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Emily Bowie is a new-to-me author, and I found Southern Hearts to be a delightful friends-to-lovers romance. There’s a hint of second chances in there, as Danger and Haven shared a few kisses and more as teens. They never dated, but they had feelings that run deep, and were constantly around one another as she is his little sister Frankie’s best friend.

Now, Danger and Haven are both in their 20s, she’s coming off a broken engagement and finds herself as Danger’s housemate. It’s the perfect scenario for Danger to finally make his move. And while things go great between Danger and Haven at first, he’s holding on to a secret that could ruin everything he’s built with the girl of his dreams.

Southern Hearts is sweet and funny, a little angsty, and has all the small-town romance feels. This book is a second in a series, but reads as a standalone.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Emily Bowie is from a small town in Western Canada. She has been making characters come to life through her writing since she was old enough to put her thoughts on paper. She loves her white wine cold, her heels red, and her books spicy.

She married her high school sweetheart and they have two amazing children.

When she is not writing she can be found reading a good book, making digital scrapbooks and being physically active–whether it is at the gym, going for a walk, or playing /keep up with her children.

Look for her next book: Crashing Hearts: An Oakport Beach standalone

Other books by Emily Bowie:
Bennett Brothers Series: Recklessly Mine, Recklessly Forbidden, & Recklessly Devoted

Steele family series: Stolen Moments, Moonlight Moments, Bittersweet Moments & Whisky Moments
