This book was absolutely brilliant and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lexi is privately nursing an elderly man called, Oliver. She's been nursing him for a few weeks but no family members have ever visited him. However, one day when she's playing cards with Oliver, a harsh male voice draws her attention. Drake, is Oliver's grandson and he is not impressed by Lexi's jokes. Oh my god, I was laughing so hard when Lexi grabs a step stool to gain an extra foot in height to Drake so she can show him that she's his equal and not frightened of him even if she is just the hired help. Lexi is feisty and speaks her mind and she won't be intimidated by the Carmichael's or their money.
Drake is attracted to Lexi, just as she is too him. However, he is rude, arrogant and his behaviour towards Lexi is unjustifiable. He makes various comments which were inexcusable such as, the help shouldn't be having dinner with their employer or accusing Lexi of being a gold digger. Sometimes I felt like slapping Drake because of his comments, he was so frustrating.
The sexual tension and attraction between Drake and Lexi doesn't go unnoticed but they do level with each other. One thing that stood out was when Lexie's mum visits and Drake overhears their conversation. When she leaves, Drake asks Lexi whether her dad comes home for lunch everyday and she replies that her dad comes home for sex and if he has time maybe some lunch. Drake made me laugh because his jaw dropped at Lexi's answer and apparently her stating that she's surprised they didn't have more kids because of the way they are always at it - made his jaw drop that much more.
I adore Lexi, she's caring, compassionate and not afraid to stand her ground or make her feelings heard. I love her southern way of speaking such as "Great day' or "O Lordy" - it adds originality.
The sex scenes are hot, erotic and sexy. I like the fact that Drake is drawn to Lexi but is shocked by his actions. He fights his feelings and attraction but he gives in as does Lexi for one night which turns out to be so much more.
I couldn't stand Bobby Lee and Kelly - those two were annoying and insensitive. I felt like slapping them both for having the audacity to go to Drake asking him to pay off Bobby Lee and Lexi's debt. These two have no shame whatsoever.
Fantastic story which was funny, sad, yet entertaining and I absolutely loved it. Jenna Hart is an amazing writer: I was hooked from the moment I started reading until the very end. I'll be definitely adding her to my favourite author list and looking out for other titles from her.
The chemistry between Drake and Lexie is sizzling, and I did not feel it contrived in any way. They seemed like two people who genuinely lusted after one another rather than two medieval nobles in an arranged marriage the way some characters are. The secondary characters are maybe not quite as drawn as the primary characters, but they are certainly not one-dimensional background, either. I wanted to learn more about them as much as I wanted to know more about Drake and Lexie. I'm not sure if the other novels in the Southern Heat series involve the same characters or if they are all just set in the South, but I'd love to see further books involving these characters.
The sex scenes, as I've alluded, are hot, but not explicit or frequent enough to tip this into "erotica" territory. The book is probably best described as "steamy", but should still be recommended to mature readers 17+.
