Book Blurb:

Book 1 in the Possum Hollow Series

Jimmie Joe Johnson has spent years living up to his hound dog reputation. If he can’t have the one female he truly wants, then any female will do. When he isn’t off diddlin’ some female, he’s practicing for pool playoffs, determined to get his pool team to Vegas. Not only for bragging rights, but for the free trip to ‘Sin City’ and cash prize that comes along with it.
Baylee Jean Brown has never gotten over her first and only love, Jimmie Joe Johnson. So when she discovers the truth about why he really ended things with her all those years before, she sets out to get her man back. And no other thigh-parting female is going to stand in her way. She just has to find a way to make him take notice of her, considering he’d been avoiding her since that day her spell-threatening aunt (yes, she does come from a long line of witches), threatened to place his man-parts in a jar on her windowsill.
Avoiding Baylee Jean Brown in a town the size of Possum Hollow is hard enough, but all of the sudden she’s dressing sexy and aiming all that female heat in his direction. He tries to convince her that she’s better off without him, but how can he expect her to listen to reason when his own heart and body refuse to? Now his man-parts are in a whole different kind of danger. Not because her aunt might still carry through with her threat to pickle them, but because he knows no other woman will ever do.

“Irreverent, bawdy, laugh out loud funny. The most hilarious book I’ve read in years–maybe ever! In fact, I’m pretty sure this book is the reason the term “ROFLMAO” was invented. If you combined Jeff Foxworthy’s humor and Jason Stackhouse’s good looks and libido, you’d end up with Jimmie Joe Johnson, one smokin’ hot hound dog and one hilarious read!” –New York Times bestselling author C.L. Wilson

“The most hilarious book I’ve read in years–maybe ever!” –C.L. Wilson

Review: I give this book 5 out 5 Redneck Stars!

Omg! This book was so hilarious! Born and raised since a lil girl with my best Sunday Frock so I am deep down kind of country. Well let me set this straight, I am actually a metal head but was born in the country in South Carolina and my family is what a lot of people would call “Rednecks”.

I can tell y’all how I raised up yonder on the country roots wit my frock, grits, sweet tea and was use to my kin speakin’ wit an axent but I betta keep it on the hush, hush instead of y’all city slickers learnin I’m a ninny.

Sorry lovelies, I had a sleepless night and went to childhood talk. So the cat is out of the bag, I could totally relate to this story because I have seen Redneck fun and craziness too many times! Half of my family is country pure and through, the other part I am asian and spanish. So growing up on a lane with all your kin and they are country as hell, trust me you see some things.

I loved this book because it reminded me of good parts of my childhood and heck people down the road from me now. I was able to laugh at how funny “rednecks” can be and I loved the romance in this story. Around where I live, it’s not out of the ordinary to hear someone talk with that kind of accent or see someone with a possum as a pet. Also southern people get mad about the whole “opossum” thing but I am starting to ramble on. I loved the characters in this book! I thought they were hilarious and realistic. To some they may not be realistic, but to me they are very much so. This book even had a little bit of mystery to it that intrigued me in the beginning. The author made me laugh until I cried while reading this story! I also really enjoyed the romance in this novel and felt the story was quite original. His Redneck Girl by Lindsey Brookes is a story that I soon won’t forget! Yee-haw!

Synopsis: Posey Love has been married to Chad for 10 years. She feels her marriage is what normal is even though her husband is a preacher and teaches that women should submit to their husbands in a severe way. She does everything her husband says from punishment and uncomfortable sex to waiting on him hand and foot. She works the receptionist desk for their church Love Ministries and is cut off from her life outside her husband. She lives a very unhappy life but is so numb to it all. She doesn’t even realize the toxic marriage she has been in for the last decade but maybe she hides it because she desperately wants children. Posey Love lives day by day and just goes through the motions. That is how she survives.

Review: I give Bless Her Heart by Sally Kilpatrick 4 out of 5 southern comfort stars! I really enjoyed this book and enjoyed the characterization. I could relate to a lot of things in this book. I honestly was introduced to a what some would call a cult when I was younger and had no idea that is what it was until 6 months being a member. The church built me up and I felt this amazing love and passion. Then when 6 months hit I was given all these rules and if I did not obey them I would be punished and kicked out of the church. This messed up my spirituality big time. This was so hard for me because they took me in like the family I never had and it ended traumatically but that’s not the point. I just felt because of this life experience I had I could especially relate to this book. I knew what the main character was going through with a lot of her feelings. I will warn some people who might not like a lot of christian references, this may not be the book for you. I thoroughly enjoyed this book because of being southern and having to experience a lot of the circumstances that the characters went through. I could relate to 4 or 5 different characters. I really enjoyed this book and I’m pleased to have read it. The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because I felt it was a little bit slow at times and a very small part I had a differing point of view. Overall I was happy I picked up this book.
