All I wanted to do was run away, I never expected to crash into his arms…
After leaving the city life behind to escape my loveless marriage, I moved to small town Havenbarrow for a fresh start.
What I didn’t expect was to find myself drawn to the town’s black sheep.
They called him troubled. Cold. A man with a dark past.
What everyone seemed to miss about Jax was the splashes of light in his eyes. The random acts of kindness he performed when no one was watching. The way he made me smile and laugh.
Jax helped unpack the baggage I’d been carrying around with me. He was patient with my pain and gentle with my scars. He was the stillness during my hurricane.
Yet when both of our pasts came back to haunt our present days, we realized quickly that sometimes love stories didn’t end the way we’d hoped.
Sometimes you were left with only the damage from the storm.
I received this ARC from the author for an honest review. Thank you, Brittainy Cherry!
When my own love story was broken, I turned to stories to heal the cracks of my broken heartbeats. When my world fell apart, the books still believed in happily-ever-afters.
Southern Storms is the first book in the series Compass by Brittainy Cherry. Southern Storms is another emotional book by this author and I can say that I love this book and this story. Southern Storms is a story about a second chance to love and healing.
Jax is a damaged man who had the strenght to take care of his father and to have compassion. Even if the people around him think he is a jerk, he is a sweet man who takes care of the persons who matter for him. I love his relationship with Connor and the banter between them.
“You are allowed to go slow. There’s no timeline to healing. You walk at the pace that works for you, and I’ll carry you when your legs get tired. You don’t have to walk this path alone.”
Kennedy is a strong woman who lost the most important persons from her life and her husband wants her to be fine. He doesn’t let her mourn her loves ones and he makes her hide her pain. He gave her the divorce papers when she needed him the most, so she decided to move to the small town Havenbarrow and to start again her life. In this small town she meets a Jax, her childhood friend. When they needed each other the most, they found each other again and they began to help each other. They realized that still exists the connection between them and they still have feelings for each other.
I love your broken pieces, because it shows that you’ve lived. It shows that you are brave enough to give yourself to the world, no matter how hard it can be at times.
I loved Jax because he was so sweet and patient with Kennedy. He respected her pain and helped her to understand that she has the right to cry after her loved ones. He accepted her that way she is and he didn’t want her to change, he just wanted her to heal and to smile again.
Before I could walk into her house, she was on the porch wrapping me in her arms, and for the first time in my life, I realized home wasn’t a place, it was a person. When I was lost that night, I ran away to Kennedy, and lucky for me, she let me in.
I loved Southern Storms and I cannot wait to read more from this new series. I admired a Kennedy because she had the strength to move forward, to heal and to love again. Jax was a sweet man who learned to forgive and to let go of the past and to dream of a new future with Kennedy. Jax and Kennedy were beautiful characters and I recommend everyone to read their journey because is beautiful and inspiring.
