New Release and Book Review: SAVING SOUTH by Amy J. Heart

Saving South
Author: Amy J. Heart
Genre: Rockstar Romance
Series: Damaged Souls, Golden Hearts #4

*can be read as a standalone*

Most secrets cause pain, but sometimes they heal.

With my band’s album skyrocketing up the charts, the last thing I want is a girlfriend. I like it rough and preferably with strangers, and I sure as hell don’t do love. Ever since my buddy introduced me to the kooky pet wedding photographer, I’ve done my best to ignore her. But Mia won’t take no for an answer. Now she’s all I think about.

One glimpse of South’s photo and it’s a serious case of insta-lust. Then I meet him in the flesh, and all bets are off. I’m determined to make the blue-eyed rocker mine. At least for a night or two. Who knew he’d want so much more? But I know for a fact he won’t want this—my sweet, tiny, little secret. 

How can I keep them both—the rock star and his baby?

A will-they-won’t-they roller coaster ride makes the HEA extra-sweet. This is book 4 in the interconnected series and it’s a standalone. If you’d like to check out South trying to ignore Mia when they first meet, you can read book 3, Nico and Ivy’s story.

Note: Full length (99,000 words) standalone with a HEA. No cheating. Contains frequent strong language, sex scenes, and drug use.

5 stars. Amy J. Heart knocks it out of the park again with Saving South.  I was first enchanted with her writing back when I stumbled upon A Boy Called L.  This book is a bit more light-hearted than that taboo dark love story, but there is still a bit of drama characteristic to this author’s books.  I do love a damaged, bad-boy rocker and South is definitely it.  I like how he is also vulnerable and has insecurities that he must overcome.  My heart broke for this complex character many times over.  Mia is quirky and fun.  She is pretty forward in the beginning of the book as she actively pursues South and I wasn’t sure how that was going to go.  She is definitely the kind of character that I would like to have as a friend.  The two of them are perfect together and the chemistry between them is hot.  This author did a great job of crafting characters that are relatable - characters that have their strengths, but also flaws and who sometimes make bad decisions.  The secondary characters are also great - I would love for some of them to get their own books.  There are a few characters from the previous book, Tempting Ivy, but this book can be read as a standalone. The book was a little long for my liking, but I didn’t find myself skimming any pages or feel like it was dragging.  Saving South is an enjoyable book with wonderful characters that are well developed and it has just the right amount of drama without going over the top.   I received this book from the author and I voluntarily leave this review.

About Amy J. Heart:

Amy J. Heart - author of dark, spicy contemporary romance novels.  Australian author who adores golden hearted girls and broken boys finding redemption together.  Nothing thrills her more than the moment when love slips the key into a locked-tight heart and breaks it wide open.  And a heft dose of grit and steam's pretty good too. She loves indie music, mad hair colors, nuclear strength coffee, Siamese cats, and long-hair boys.  And not in that order!
