My Review

This is the story of Jessa and Jackson. They got married young and in love, but Jackson’s huge drive to get a better life for him and his wife, along with the lack of good understanding between them, broke them apart.

Jessa went back to their old town and bought the home plantation from under her ex during the divorce. Now Jackson wants to sell it but the man that bought it refuse to listen to reason. So he flew to his old town to talk to the guy and Jessa’s lie was up, but that wasn’t the only thing they discover when they got brought together by destiny.

I believe the Lockhart sisters did a fantastic job with their debut novel. Working as a team in writing doesn’t sound easy but there was no difference, in my opinion, in the writing style. So they did great at mixing their writing together while telling a story.

When I saw what happened with their divorce, which was pre-talked about on the blurb, I was jumping with joy because I love me a good marriage that loves each other get a second chance so they can live happily together.

The plot was interesting and so precious. I do have to say that Jessa annoyed me a little bit with how easy she blamed Jackson for things without looking at herself too. Good thing she noticed and did the right thing later or I would have been really mad.

I would recommend this book to those that love second chance romances.

About the Author

Jasmine and Arielle Lockhart were born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, in a house overflowing with books, art, and poetry scrawled on scraps of paper by the hands of their father and mother. The sisters spent their childhood summers setting crawdad traps and picking peaches from the three-hundred-year-old tree on their family’s plantation. On stormy nights when the power would go out in the Antebellum home, Arielle would distract her younger sister by telling her stories. It never took long before Jasmine’s fear of the dark was forgotten and she was butting in with her own ideas of how the story should go.

In 2017, over mint julep’s on the plantation’s ivy-laden porch, Jasmine and Arielle came up with the crazy idea to co-write a romance novel. A year and many heated debates later, the first book in the Fever series was complete.

When she’s not nagging her sister to add more kissing scenes to their books, Jasmine is a world-traveler, living between New Orleans and Abu Dhabi in the Middle East.

Arielle currently resides on the plantation, where she spends her days writing and convincing Grammy Dee that Annabelle, the housekeeper she hired three years ago, is not the reincarnation of the young woman who hung herself in the peach tree after her fiancé failed to return from war.

I made a mistake that might have ruined someone’s life. I’ve moved to Sydney to avoid the glares and the questions from the people back home, but there’s one thing I can’t run from—the guilt and pain that follows me relentlessly. All I can do is dull it with alcohol and casual sex. But then my new boss, Mr Dark and Delicious, deserted me, mid kiss, with my skirt hiked up and my shirt discarded on the alley floor. I should hate him―him and the secrets he’s keeping. But I can’t stay away. Because the pain and guilt he’s hiding mirror my own.

All she wanted was one night. That, I could do. I’m the king of casual. Love them and leave them, before they leave me. With chemistry off the scale, we couldn’t even make it home, both of us too impatient, ripping each other’s clothes off in the alleyway outside the bar. Then my phone buzzed, and one text message stopped everything. I couldn’t think. Couldn’t breathe. All I could do was run. I’m toxic, but I can’t tell her why. I can’t bear the look of horror I know would cross her face. But I also don’t know how to keep something so life altering from the woman I’m falling for. Not when I need her just to survive it.
