My rating:


For me, failure has never been an option, not with Everett Morgan controlling my entire career. But when my efforts to win back the girl who got away end up with me helping my rival, I concede defeat—and sneak away to a private island off the coast of South Carolina to lick my wounds.

Only I wasn’t counting on the seamstress for the band driving the getaway car. Or waking up the next day, with Bliss in my bed and a ring on her finger…and absolutely no memory of the wedding.

Bliss terrifies me while giving me hope that I can be more, that I can be this guy no one else can see but her. But I’m not sure who I want to be…except free.


I may not have finished high school, but I graduated with honors from the school of hard knocks. Four years ago, after barely surviving the second most terrifying ordeal of my life, I ran away from my foster parents and never looked back.

With one reckless decision, I wind up married to Jaxon Hunter, country music’s biggest bad boy. Only to me, he’s Jackson Morgan, equal parts sweet and selfish, thoughtful and prideful…arrogant and humble. And try as I might not to, I’m falling in love with him.

Only a future with Jackson can’t happen without reconciling with his past. But I’m not sure if I can endure the drama, the secrets… or competing with the only woman Jackson has ever loved.


In Review My Thoughts

Marquita Valentine’s Boys of the South make me want to pack up and move … further south. They’re so swoony and sexy and sweet, even though they all have dickish tendencies every now and then. Jackson is no exception, but my word, he’s exceptional in other ways. 🙂

I was dying to get my hands on Jackson and Bliss’ story since fate threw them together in Only for You. They had serious chemistry, which all but jumped off the pages and they were so imperfectly perfect together. They were totally bad boy meets good girl and I absolutely ate it up. I needed so much more. I got it – and more than I could have expected – in True for You.

If you read Only for You, you *know* what happens to Jackson and Bliss at the end of the book. If you haven’t read it, what are you waiting on? These two have a LOT to deal with and some decisions need to be made. They stumble and fall and the lack of communication between the pair was enough to drive me insane, but in the best way possible. They’re both flawed, and oh-so-very different, but that’s what makes them so special, makes me cheer for them to work things out.

This book was sexy, sweet and swoony, as I’ve come to expect from Marquita Valentine. There’s a heart-melting twist that I won’t ruin for you. If I’m being honest, I guessed it long before it was revealed, but that didn’t make it any less special when it happened.

This series just keeps getting better and I hope it continues. There are some fantastic characters in this series and I want to know and love all of them. I want to know everything I can about them. This series is more than just fun sexy times though. It’s tackled some serious issues in a very real, relatable way. I continue to be impressed.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I am glad that this was a winner for you. 🙂 I have begun to realize that bad boys aren’t my favorite, but they do have steamy scenes in the bedroom!
