ARC Review: Sweet Southern Betrayal by Robin Covington

Sweet Southern Betrayal by Robin Covington is the third book in The Boys Are Back In Town Series. This book can be read as a standalone but has interconnecting characters. I haven't read the rest of this series, but I really liked this one and had no problems without having read the previous installments. Robin Covington definitely did not disappoint with this story, and she is becoming a favorite of mine to read. Her stories are well written, have real and likable characters and are really enjoyable books. I can't wait to go back and read the first two books in this series and also read more from Covington in the future. If you are looking for a great Contemporary author, you definitely need to check Robin Covington out.

Teague has always lived his life according to "The Plan". He is a Harvard Law grad about to make partner at his firm, and is on his way to a political career that he hopes lands him in the oval office. But when he winds up in Vegas and ends up involved with a showgirl, his life seems to be headed off track. Despite the attraction, Teague heads home assuming that he will never see Risa again. She shows up on his doorstep not long after looking to escape from the mobster that she owes money as well as to inform Teague that they are married. With Teague's life spiraling out of control, he rushes to fix the problems that he is suddenly faced with including his new wife Risa. Risa is filled with guilt and knows that the mobster she double crossed will likely try to kill her, but she can't help but want to protect the stranger who happens to now be her husband. The more time that they spend together, Teague and Risa realize that they share more than just intense passion and both begin to hope for a chance to be together. But with secrets and guilt between them and Teague's political aspirations can they possibly have a future together?

I really liked Risa and Teague. They were great together and had amazing chemistry. They were super sexy and you could really see the intense passion between them. I loved watching as they got to know each other better, and they were the perfect balance for the other. I felt like the connection and relationship between them real and believable despite the short time that they knew each other. It isn't often that it works and usually comes off as rushed, but that wasn't the case with Risa and Teague. Teague was a really great guy, smart and sexy but a little bit buttoned up being a lawyer with political goals. But Risa really brought out the other sides to him and allowed him to open up a bit more. Risa was strong and determined, a true survivor. She definitely made some mistakes and didn't think things through or handle them correctly. But I loved how she went after what she wanted and was proof that you can overcome anything if you really work hard and put your mind to it.

Overall, I really liked Teague and Risa's story. I thought that they were great together and really seemed to fit well. They were a case of opposites attract, and they not only made it work but they really were better because of their differences. I really liked all the secondary characters as well, and I can't wait to go back and get the previous stories as well as read more in the future. I loved the camaraderie and friendship that all the guys had, and how they looked out for each other. They were a lot of fun to read about. This book was a quick and enjoyable read. If you are looking for an entertaining contemporary, I recommend that you give this one a shot. Robin Covington is worth the read, and Teage and Risa are a great couple that are easy to become invested in and root for. I can't wait to read more from Robin Covington in the future.
