Sweet and steamy with just the right amount of tension. After all who can resist a sweet but fiesty school teacher and a sexy ex-football star??? ( )

ARC Review: Sweet Southern Trouble by Michele Summers

Nick and Marabelle are magically delicious. She's the sugar, he's the spice. Put them together and they make for the hottest of vices. Sweet Southern Trouble is an organic blend of humor, heart and smart writing. Ms. Summers has a lock on temperature rising, incredibly entertaining down home southern charm. When it comes to romance author, characters and story delivers a one, two punch to the heart. ( )

"5 out of 5 stars!! Under the pretense of getting Nick (Nicholas), the head coach of the North Carolina Cherokees, to allow her access to Nick’s team for her school's planned bachelor auction Marabelle (Tinker Bell/Mary-bell/Thumbelina) agrees to the ruse of being his fiancée. However, every time Nick and Marabelle are together, sparks fly and they quickly find that their relationship is progressing rapidly and into something VERY real. That is if Marabelle can get over her own securities, Nick can get over his past, and if someone from Nick's recent "past" doesn't get in their way....

Wow!! Out of the three novels I've read in Ms. Summers' Harmony Homecomings Series (which have been Books 2, 3, & 4) THIS one is by far my favorite!!! Especially since though it was written from multiple viewpoints (even those other than Nick and Marabelle) the main focus is always about Nick and Marabelle so I never got distracted. YAY! Also, even though I am not a fan of wishy-washy characters, which Marabelle definitely is, the plotline moved on so quickly that I never had time to get annoyed with her because of it, which made me enjoy Marabelle as a character more. Double YAY!!

This is one..."

My Rating: 5/5 stars
My Review:

The title of this one really does tell the whole story!! If there is trouble to be found, Marabelle Fairchild is not only going to find it, she’s going to dive into it with her eyes wide open and her mouth, that has no edit button, open and going a mile a minute.

There is very little that goes through Marabelle’s mind that doesn’t come out her mouth and in her latest episode of verbal diarrhea, she’s gotten herself into one hell of a mess. In order to secure her future at the ultra-posh private school she works for, Marabelle has landed herself in the middle of organizing the school’s yearly fundraiser. She’s been tasked with enlisting the help – OK, the hotness – and financial backing of the Carolina Cherokees, the local pro football team. Everyone assumes Marabelle is going to fail and there are some on the committee who are actively working against Marabelle. Turns out, when you have a mind and a mouth that often run free, you make a few enemies.

Nick Frasier is an ex-pro football player turned pro coach and uncle to a rambunctious kindergartner. That rambunctious kindergartner is part of the reason Nick has been called to Marabelle’s classroom and currently being all but accosted by the feistiest woman he has ever met. On top of telling him his nephew is tiny turd, Marabelle has asked him for help with the school fundraiser. Aside from being blindsided by her request, Nick is pretty much blown away by Marabelle and in the beginning, that blown away is not in a good way. Marabelle is like a tiny tornado with no off switch and determination like Nick has never seen. In fact, once Marabelle has an idea, she’s fairly relentless and isn’t long before she’s introduced herself to a group of Nick’s players and begun wooing them to her cause. It sure doesn’t hurt that Marabelle cooks for the boys 😊

What Marabelle doesn’t know about Nick is that he needs her as much as she needs him. Nick has a great deal of pressure on him from the Cherokee’s management to settle down and improve his public persona. The best way to do that is to strike a deal with Marabelle, the one woman he could never, ever actually fall for. If Marabelle agrees to be his fake fiancé, Nick and the boys will help her pull off the best fundraiser the school has ever seen! As you would expect with such an arrangement, all kinds of shenanigans ensue including a raucous meeting of the parents, a vicious tennis tournament, a heinous ex-girlfriend with nefarious plans, and more than a few words left unspoken.

The Bottom Line: I absolutely fell in love with this read. It has everything a romantic comedy should have: a crazy-awesome girl, a hot southern gentleman, a ridiculous fake engagement, meddling yet well-intentioned friends, and some harpies working against the happy couple. This is a funny, hot mess kind of read populated with a cast of crazies that I just devoured. There are certainly some naughty bits in this read, but they are appropriate to the overall sweet nature of this read. In all, Sweet Southern Trouble is a pretty perfect read and I am sincerely hoping Michele Summers will give the rest of the men on the Carolina Cherokees team their own book and their own HEA! ( )

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. I loved this book, Marabelle was great. I did enjoy Nick as her love interest, but I absolutely loved his team, Beau was awesome, Tyler was good and Rocker. Then we have the others Elizabeth, her friend and her sister. What a fun cast of characters, they all added spice to the story. I truly had fun reading this, and I hated the villain, Ginger, which shows you how good the writing is, when you hate the person you are supposed to hate.. Reading you will not be disappointed. ( )
