Amazon.com Book Description:

Jordan's forced to hire Sam Tanner to repair the old house. Jordan lusted after Sam in high school when he was the bad boy and she was the nerdy drama geek. He'd even kissed her once, firing up her adolescent fantasies, then laughed when she ran away. Though she tries to resist his considerable charm, Sam's not giving her any quarter. He's making it abundantly clear that this time she isn't going to run.Under a scorching South Carolina sun, her resolve to remain impervious to Sam melts and she gives in to her desire. After all, why not engage in steamy sex with the bad boy of her dreams to while away her time in sultry Magnolia? When the project is finished, she'll go back to New York and forget all about Sam.If only her heart would let go of foolish dreams.


My Book Review:


I was looking for a steamy romance book to get the summer season started, and boy did I pick a good one with Magnolia Summer.  This is the first time I read a book by Jaci Burton, and I was pleasantly surprised with the storyline. I am a huge fan of stories set in the South, especially in North & South Carolina, and this story is set in Magnolia, SC which automatically got my attention. From beginning to end, the characters of Jordan and Sam had me engrossed in their tug-of-war feelings for each other. I was mildly surprised with the erotic sex scenes in the story, be aware that there are explicit erotic sex scenes, but reading about Jordan's and Sam's sexual relationship was a hell of a lot of fun! ;p I loved how Jordan and Sam's relationship went from being wary about each other, to discovering mutual sexual satisfaction, to finally discovering that they were both falling in love with each other. In the end, I loved how Jordan finally realized that her real dream had always been at home in Magnolia instead of her runaway dream of making it big in NYC, and that the love she thought she'd never have with Sam was right before her eyes the whole time! This was a fun book to read, all romance readers will definitely enjoy this one! 


RATING: 4 STARS ****
