Sex. Politics. Scandal.

When a shadowy group intent on stealing the U.S. presidential election targets a leading candidate’s daughter, jaded professional fixer Nolan Jackson is hired to safely escort her across the country to a star-studded Election Eve event.

Except in love. Yet, he’ll soon find himself irresistibly drawn to the candidate’s beautiful, naïve daughter.

Sheltered heiress Lola Randall has always played it safe. Now she’s gone rogue. After escaping the media spotlight and her overbearing parents, the last thing she needs in her life is an alpha male. But when Nolan shows her how good it can feel to relinquish control, she begins to secretly crave his domination. Now, she must choose between her independence and falling in love. Because Nolan is determined to win her heart and nail the bad guys before the opposition finds a way to steal the White House.

Review

The Southern Gentleman books are Sweden Reese’s debut novels and what a way to come into this community. These books have the perfect mix of a dirty mouth dominant and sweet Southern Charm. Since they are being release simultaneously, this review is for both.

Lola Randall is the daughter of a female U.S. President candidate who might just end up at the first woman president. Because of this status, Lola becomes a target for those who might not want her mother to win the election. Blinded by her own desire of freedom, Lola takes off across the country, deserting her mother’s campaign and unknowingly putting herself in more danger.

Nolan Jackson is what they call a “fixer.” He is hired by Lola’s prestigious parents to track down Lola and put her back safely with them and back in the limelight for her mother’s campaign. What should have been an easy job has now quickly turned into a very dangerous job. Nolan’s sole purpose is to protect Lola, which is part of his job. What he didn’t realize what just how quickly the job becomes personal. Lola has caught his attention. Will he be able to stay professional or will the lines get blurred?

Man, that was a wild ride! There is enough suspense and plot twists that it kept my mind running all over the place. Some things I could sense were coming and others hit me like a mac truck. I liked the fact that there was so much more than just a dominant/submissive relationship between Nolan and Lola. The storyline of Nola being a target because of a presidential campaign really did help add to the overall book and their relationship dynamic.

Here’s the thing. Nolan falls fast and hard and I typically don’t like insta-love. So what helped balance this out for me was the fact that Lola was a little bit more resistant. Sure, she might have fallen quickly as well but the struggle with her understanding it logically made it better. Then you add in the fact that Nolan has the perfect mix of hot, dominant, dirty mouth alpha and sweet Southern charm and I felt like I was getting a well balanced story.

I also enjoyed how much Nolan has to explain his desire of being a dominant relationship. With Lola having no idea what it is about, it caused him to really have to help her understand.

“I want to unlock the secrets of your mind and conquer your will. I want to strip you down until you’re completely bared to me, totally raw, completely vulnerable, one hundred percent mine for the taking.”

Well, OK. That sums that up, right?

Overall, I think that these books are great debut novels from Sweden and I look forward to seeing more from her. If you are looking for a fast paced, suspenseful novel with one very dominant, dirty alpha then these books just might be for you.
