Sweet Southern Betrayal: A Boys Are Back in Town Novel by Robin Covington

Waking up in a tacky Elvis-themed bedroom is a bad sign—even in Vegas. Especially when it’s accompanied by five-star hangover and no memory of the night before. For golden-boy lawyer Teague Elliott, it’s the kind of nightmare that could ruin his political career before it’s even begun. Especially if it’s the kind of trouble that’s sleeping in his bed…with creamy skin, flaming hair, and a voice that evokes the memory of seriously unbelievable sex.

At least there’s no ring on his finger.

Showgirl Risa Clay is in way over her head. She had her instructions: seduce Teague, marry him, and hand the "evidence" over to her mobster boss for blackmail. But somehow, the plan went awry—starting with the five rounds of wickedly-hot sexy time with Teague. Now Risa’s running for her life… and the only man who can possibly help her is the man whose career she’s about to destroy!

    Oh hello boys. Welcome back. When this landed on my Kindle I did an actual whoop of joy. Having loved A Night of Southern Comfort and His Southern Temptation, I have been patiently waiting for the boys to arrive back in town. And this time it's Teague's turn.

    A powerful attorney, Teague Elliott is going places. With wealth, ambition and balls of steel, the man is on his way to booking his room in the The White House. When his best friend and baby sis' decamp to Vegas to get married, the boys go with them and after a night of gambling and booze, our oh-so-sexy lawyer finds a beautiful lady in his bed and a phone filled with images of how their night played out. Only one very important photo is missing, the one that could compromise everything he's worked for...

    Once again Robin Covington has given us a perfect book that is beautifully written with an enthralling, entertaining and touching story, romance, humour, action, surprises, intimacy, sizzling hot steamy content and fabulous banter between the boys. I have to confess that I didn't warm to Teague straight away. In fact I actually shook my head and tutted in the opening chapter! His cocky arrogance isn't an endearing quality but he and Risa have perfect chemistry; she has secrets but she's stubborn with an admirable strength and determination, isn't afraid to put him in his place and quickly unleashes the protector in him, his inner softie and the real Teague. The Teague that I swooned and sighed over and who has left his buddies for dust when it comes to my affections.

    This books deserves every single star. If you haven't read the first two books in the series go read them now because not only are you missing a treat, but the characters all continue to feature heavily. And after being handed a few teasers as to Beck's background and personality, I can't wait for his book.

    I received an ARC of this courtesy of Entangled Publishing for an honest and unbiased opinion.

    Messy Is Where the Good Stuff Lives - Sweet Southern Betrayal S

    Messy Is Where the Good Stuff Lives - Sweet Southern Betrayal

    Sweet Southern Betrayal, the third book of Robin Covington’s “Boys are Back in Town” series, featured with attorney, Teague Elliot. Known as a “fixer” among the elite power brokers of Washington D.C., he worked at one of the most prestigious firms and had political aspirations. He stayed away from anything he considered “messy,” like relationships. While attending his sister, Taylor’s wedding to his best friend, Lucky, in Las Vegas, he met redheaded bombshell, Risa Clay – his new showgirl wife. His showgirl wife who owned a side business selling tasteful “marital aids.” Not exactly the ideal woman for a man with dreams of living in the White House. Everything about Risa was “messy.” And personal. And amazing.

    They agreed to keep their marriage a secret. Unfortunately, secrets have a way of taking on a life of their own, and soon Teague’s family, friends and colleagues found out about Risa. As beautiful as she was on the outside, Risa was even lovelier on the inside. She immediately tried to protect Teague from the possible repercussions of their Vegas nuptials, and knowingly placed herself directly in harm’s way.

    At its core, Sweet Southern Betrayal was an “opposites attract” story, but as the layers were peeled away, we learned that both Risa and Teague were survivors. They saw the dreams they never believed could be realized, in and with, each other. It required that they to look past their set life plans, and into an unknown, unexpected and uncontrollable future. How they navigated it was beautifully crafted, through self-doubt, heartbreak, betrayal, forgiveness, and the possibility of love. In addition to some very steamy sex.

    Many series have recurring characters that make cameo appearances, but Ms. Covington created a deep connection between the four friends – Teague, Lucky, Jack and Beck – that was itself another fully developed character. The men formed a bond in childhood that sustained them through personal and professional successes and failures. Ms. Covington took that circle of friendship and expanded it, as each man found love, and their family of friends grew.

    While each book may be read as a stand-alone novel, I highly encourage readers to read A Night of Southern Comfort and His Southern Temptation. Ms. Covington is writing Beck’s book and it promises to be as emotional, entertaining and hot, as the rest of the series.

    Disclaimer: While I received an ARC of this book for an honest review, I purchased it for my Boys are Back in Town Collection.

    Sometimes what goes on in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas...

    Sometimes what goes on in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas...

    Celebrating his sister's wedding, Teague and the guys spend a memorable night in Vegas. As Teague wakes up the next morning and counts how many condoms he used the night before, he is surprised to realize he does not remember much except brief recollections of what must have been unforgettable. Let's face it, he is always in control and he is a lawyer! He will not soon forget the gorgeous creature lounging on his bed.

    Risa is a Vegas showgirl. No stripping, just dancing in the show! She has scratched her way out of homelessness. She respects herself and what she did last night is not her norm. What started as a debt being paid ended up being a night she will not soon forget. This man is everything a girl could hope for... but for someone like her, unable to attain.

    This story evolves with plot twists and secrets that cannot be kept from being shared. Risa and Teague are thrown together to prevent the destruction of Teague's reputation and dreams for his future. The chemistry between them is undeniable. They are an explosion waiting to happen! Needless to say, the bad guys are drooling to control Teague. He is a strong candidate for future President and with that comes power all want to control.

    I found this story both enjoyable and extremely romantic. Risa and Teague are a couple that Fate has brought together and by all means should stay together. This is one of those times where you will be cheering to make sure what goes on in Vegas has a permanent place in Risa and Teague's life.

    This was a cute story about the romance between improbable lovers. The meet in Vegas, get sloshed, and wake up married, with a whole slew of twists and turns. I enjoyed this book, I only gave it 4 stars because I found some elements of the book to be a little unbelievable, but it was still very good.

    A drunken mistake in Vegas, named Risa, has Teague Elliot scrambling to fix it.  There can be no drunken mistakes for a man destined for the White House.  Risa is ashamed of the secret she's keeping from Teague.  They agree to stay together until the annulment goes through and then go their separate ways only everyone starts falling in love with Risa.  Everyone but Teague.  He doesn't have it in him to be in love with anyone.  Will Risa's secret be revealed?  Will she put herself in danger to save Teague?

    Loved it!  Robin Covington really knows how to grab you with all these amazing characters.  I love Risa's business, Behind Closed Doors.   Everything in this story had its place and it was perfect!  It just flowed right along with all the fun and sexy characters.  This is my first foray into The Boys Are Back in Town series and I started with the third book.  Though it can be read as a stand alone, I need to find out how those first two guys fumbled with their women before they got it right.  I look forward to reading more from this fabulous author.

    I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Being a good southern girl, I love the undeniable charms of a true southern gentleman. Therefore, I had no choice to fall for the sexy, smart and dashing Teague Elliott. Teague is on the fast track to political greatness. He's making partner at a powerful D.C. law firm. He comes from a good family, at least in the eyes of the public. Everything was going as expected until a wild weekend in Vegas. When will people learn not to get drunk in the land of quickie wedding chapels?




    Risa Clay is a street smart beauty from Las Vegas. She comes from a messy background of foster homes, poverty, and doing whatever it took to survive. Her caring nature lands her in a sticky situation to help her bestie. Then, it get her in a stickier situation when she breaks her deal with a mob boss to save the stranger she was supposed to set up. I could help but like Risa. She has a fiery spirit tempered with kindness and love. She's not afraid to stand up for herself. But her living in the here and now got her in trouble from time to time.




    As the saying goes, opposites attract. Teague's and Risa's attraction is like a match to gasoline, highly combustible. I loved their interaction with one another. It was fueled with passion, but intimate and enduring. When consumed in their desire, each of them were able to forget who they pretended to be and allowed themselves to be the people they really wanted to be, including the need to be together. Wondering if I need to check out the view from the Mandarin hotel... Loved that scene!




    This is the first book I've read by Ms. Covington. It contained characters I truly connected with, a fast paced plot, and smoldering hot sex. It did not disappoint.

    The rest of this post, as well as my other reviews, can be found at My Written Romance.

    Robin's signature line says it all about this book. Burning up the sheets, one page at a time. The sexytimes are hot, and the chemistry between Teague and Risa is electric.

    The characters in this series are amazing. They're smart, funny, flawed, imperfect....and my god, the men are sexy!

    Risa is awesome. I love that despite her less than stellar childhood and life in and out of foster care, Risa was not ashamed of herself. It may not have been perfect, but she has never let it control her or make her bitter.

    Big cheers to you, Robin, for not making Teague Mr. Perfect-Who-Has-It-All-and-Is-Wound-Tighter-Than-A-Guitar-String. He's wealthy, ambitious and single-minded, but in no way is this boy repressed. I loved that beneath the "it's all about the career" facade, Teague still has a heart.

    I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed Sweet Southern Betrayal, and I am not going to get all spoilerish on you all. But I will say this: I am absolutely champing at the bit to read Beck's story. If I'm right, a little hint as to the sexy doctor's past is let out for us to find, and I cannot wait to see what Robin has in store for him.

    I give Sweet Southern Betrayal 5 out of 5

    Damn these Elliott boys are a sexy hard headed adorable bunch. And Teague was just as clueless as his friends before him. I alternated between wanting to slap Teague up side the head for being so stupid and wanting to get naked and get me some of what he was offering. 

    Risa didn't really stand a chance against Teague's charm. But really who'd want to.


    This is an excellent addition to The Boys are Back in Town series. A thoroughly engaging read that i had a hard time putting down.


    Overall i give this 5 out of 5 I can't wait to see what the next book in the series brings.

    Rating 4 1/2 Stars

    So, I got a chance to read Robin Covington latest book Sweet Southern Betrayal. I must say that I really enjoyed this book and I loved the chemistry between Risa and Teague. Talk about opposites.

    You have Risa Clay who is a Vegas showgirl who has a side business of selling "sensual marital aids and exclusive nightwear for couples"(fancy way of saying sex toys and lingerie). She grew up waiting for the rug getting pulled from underneath her or waiting for the other show to drop.

    Then you have Teague Elliot who grew up not knowing what it was like to grow up on the wrong side of the tracks. He's had a privilege life and has used to his full advantage. Plus, he's one of those guys who has his life planned out to the minute. All his blocks are lined up perfectly.

    However, all that changes when his life gets turned upside down by Risa. Now Risa made a deal with the devil and now she is dealing with the fallout and trying to fix what she has done to Teague.

    Sweet Southern Betrayal happens to be an awesome read. I mean you have this heat between Risa and Teague, but at the same time they are just buying their time till they fix the issue at hand. However, things start to change between these two. Risa is more than willing to let thing go with the flow while Teague is a bit stubborn. Teague is just so focus on his goal that he doesn't see what he has until it's almost too late. Overall, this was a fun read, because you have two people that couldn't be anymore opposite than Teague and Risa. So, if you are looking for a sassy heroine that could drive a stick in the mud crazy, you might have winner with Sweet Southern Betrayal.

    I was expecting a typical "man goes to Vegas, gets drunk and wakes up married" story. And it did start out that way but then it turned and I got sucked in. Teague is a lawyer who wants to be in politics. He doesn't believe in love and he wants a perfect life to become partner in his firm and beyond. Risa is a professional dancer who owes money to the wrong people. Great read.

    Sweet Southern Betrayal is the third book in author Robin Coving

    Sweet Southern Betrayal is the third book in author Robin Covington’s The Boys Are Back in Town Series and oh my, these boys can back into my town any time they’d like!  I adored this book!
    Successful attorney Teague Elliot has the world in the palm of his hand.  He’s just about to land the title of youngest partner in his uber successful Washington D.C. law firm and he couldn’t be happier.  Of course, this is just another stepping stone in his plan to enter the world of politics.  He’s also managed to keep his nose clean and the skeletons out of his closet his entire life in prep to take The Oval Office one day.  This brings us to the present…when he heads to Las Vegas with his friends and ends up in bed with a Vegas showgirl and absolutely no memory of why she’s here.  Or what he may have done the night before.  Will “what happens in Vegas” actually stay in Vegas?  Never has Teague needed it that saying to be more true than right now….
    You could say that Risa Clay has taken the lemons life has handed her and made them into lemonade.  She didn’t have an easy childhood but has managed to make a pretty good life as a Las Vegas Showgirl and can’t really complain.  She certainly can’t complain when she wakes up to a sexy stranger after an unforgettable night.  But that’s just what she’d have to do…forget him.  Her best friend was in trouble and she had done last night as payment to her boss for borrowing money to help her best friend kick a nasty drug habit.  A shame, really, because this sexy stranger was positively delicious and they had an undeniable chemistry.  It’s this chemistry that prevents her from doing the last part of the payment for her boss and sends her fleeing Vegas…and showing up on her handsome one-night stand’s doorstep.
    So I’ll say it again….these boys can come back to my town any time they’d like.  This book started out with a kick and just kept getting better with each chapter.  I couldn’t put it down!  Teague is straight laced, buckled up and not one to forget his end goal: The White House.  He’s worked hard and has dotted every “i” and crossed every “t” knowing full well that he didn’t want to deal with the hassle of a shady past.  Well, you know what they say about the best-laid plans.  Risa is exactly his opposite, a girl with a messy past and just living in the moment.  And this brings me to another saying: opposites attract! Fate has slammed these two together and never before has she gotten it more right.  Risa and Teague are so amazing together.  The push and pull between them is practically tangible, the chemistry between them palpable.  They’ve got quite a mess on their hands and fixing it proves to push them both to the limit, testing all emotions and crossing all sorts of lines. Did I mention I loved this book? Well, I did.  A lot.  Also, I have to mention that Robin writes some of the most amazing smexy scenes that I’ve ever read….and I’ve read a whole lot of them.  There’s just something about her writing that gives her characters a little dash of more and it makes all the difference in adding to the heat factor!
    If you haven’t read the other books in the series, no worries, you can totally read this book as a stand-alone.  Of course, I absolutely recommend you do, well, if for no other reason than Robin writes some phenomenal characters and you will enjoy each one!  Thank you, Robin, for Teague, Risa and another fab story!

    Teague Elliott has political aspirations. He has a 'plan', but everything changes when he meets Risa Clay, a Vegas showgirl. They have a wild night together, but morning comes and they agree to go their separate ways. Next thing Teague knows he is a married man and she is his bride. What happens next? What is Risa's dark secret? Robin Covington has given us another steamy love story in the Boys Are Back In Town series. It's nice to see familiar characters as they help Teague and Risa find their HEA. Big Tony, the Vegas mobster, adds danger and excitement. However, Teague and Risa, the passionate lovers, get all our attention. They are opposites in their life experiences, but so perfect together in all other ways. They are passionate, loyal and protective. Sweet Southern Betrayal is a wild ride but the ending is so satisfying. I loved this story.
