Southern Gentleman- Jessica Peterson (Review)

Southern Gentleman is the 3rd book in Jessica Peterson’s Charleston Heat series, though it can absolutely be read as a standalone. Julia and Greyson don’t see eye to eye on anything other than their desire for each other. After several hot romps in the back of Grey’s SUV, Julia winds up pregnant. Can they overcome their differences to start a family together?

I’ve loved every book in this series so far, and this is my favorite yet. The heat between the two is intense. I love the imperfect journey they go on to grow and change into a relationship that works for both of them. I love that both characters are flawed, but they grow to love each other anyway and word hard towards preserving their relationship and building a life for their baby (all while retaining their fiery spark). It was fun to see characters from the previous books and meet the characters that will (I assume) be the focus of the upcoming fourth book. 5/5 Stars


I know two things when I meet my new boss, Greyson Parker Montgomery III. 
One, he’s an egomaniac. And two, we’re going to get naked. 
Something I didn’t know? That I’d end up pregnant.

No one is more surprised by our off-the-charts chemistry than me. I’m a free spirit with a passion for design and a taste for the bohemian. Greyson is a cocky venture capitalist who’s as pretentious as his sharply cut power suits. 

He owns half of Charleston, and has the other half at his beck and call. But the only place he owns me is in bed…or in the backseat of his car, boneless and begging for mercy. 

We argue over contracts and costs all day long. Behind closed doors, however, we engage in a different kind of business. The kind that has me surrendering to his unique brand of dominance. 

Our no-strings attached arrangement suits me just fine. Until I wake up one morning with what I think is a wicked hangover. 

Only it’s not a hangover.

I thought Greyson was a typical “greed is good” grump. But when he demands to be involved in the life we accidentally created, I start to see a different side of him. One that’s more gentleman than jerk.Am I crazy to think we could be a family together? Or is making me fall for him just another one of his power plays?
