Slow and Steady #1 (Shameless Southern Nights) by J.H. Croix, Ali Parker

Dive into small-town secrets in this brand new steamy contemporary romance series from USA Today Bestselling Authors J.H. Croix & Ali Parker!

A small town can hide many secrets. It can also expose every secret you have. 

Serve & protect, that's my life. I put my life on the line time and time again as a police officer. In days gone by, I held my head high in Cypress Creek.

Until my family got caught in the riptide of scandal created by my father. No matter what, I still can't believe he's guilty.

Niki Holmes never caught my attention before. She's a librarian—smart and so quiet, she stays off my radar. The moment I take one look in her eyes, I'm lost. She calls to me on every level.

She's also pure as the driven snow. My life is way too dark and twisted, yet she's the light in my darkness.

By chance, she lands in the crosshairs of the investigation swirling around me. I'll do anything to keep her safe, anything to make her mine.

*This is Book 1 of the Slow & Steady trilogy. There will be a clifhanger and you will need to buy books 2 & 3 to continue the series.

Wow! An amazing read with unforgettable characters, small-town vibe, suspense, mystery, secrets and steamy romance that kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. I loved the sizzling chemistry and dynamic between Sonny Lovett, Cypress Creek policeman, and Niki Holmes, Cypress Creek librarian. I can't wait to see what happens next in this can't-put-down trilogy.

Great start for Sonny’s trilogy! This was an interesting read with lots of mystery and suspence, and of course romance, that kept me glued to my reader. Sonny’s investigation captured my attention right from the start and I can’t wait to see what happens next. I loved his protectiveness towards Niki. They are really great together with sizzling chemistry between them. Can’t wait for the next part! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Omg, another hit. Love these two writing together. This is the 1st book from this group and focused on Sonny from the Lovett boys. Sonny is determined to find out what is missing from the investigation that put his father in jail. He knows that his dad did something wrong but doesn't think his dad did everything he was accused of. The only problem is that all the stuff from the local papers around the time of the trial and all the case filed have been majorly redacted and he can't figure out why since most of the stuff was public information during the trial. Niki is a librarian who ends up helping Sonny find more information from around the trial of his dad. Seemed innocent enough to research but suddenly she if getting threats for even knowing Sonny, which she really doesn't know him, she just offically met him. This is a must read to find out how their interaction starts. There is a good story and can't wait to read the next one.

Sonny Lovett a Cypress Creek police officer. The Lovett family was well known in the town because of his corrupt father who was in prison. Sonny believed that his father was being framed, so he started to investigate the evidence that were from his trial. Niki the librarian in the town see Sonny in the library but leaves at her first sighting. This story is full of mystery, suspense, thugs making threats and romance. Both Sonny and Niki are friends but who knows where this will lead. The ending was abrupt however I am waiting for the saga to continue. Love the story!!! I voluntarily reviewed this ARC book for my honest review.

Are you ready for a mystery with sweet, hot love thrown in? This is the book for you then. Slow & Steady is anything but. There are so many things going on in this town and Sonny is determined to find the truth but the truth could cost him. Love this series and Sonny and Niki and such fun characters. I received an early copy to read and review and give my honest opinion. I highly recommend this book. It is a cliffhanger series with 3 books so be aware that it ends leaving you gasping for book 2 so pick them both up at the same time.

Uncovering The Past & Opening A Can of Worms... He's sure there's something Fishy with his Dad's case... He's sure he's at least not the ONLY ONE guilty, or maybe he's even innocent... But, once he starts digging, there's Nightcrawlers surfacing faster than after a rainstorm in Spring creeping around everywhere, making it hard to know who to trust... Unfortunately, his investigation brought the Se*y Little Librarian onto more than his radar... Now, he's gotta protect her & keep her safe before she's bait for the bigger fish in this Crapshoot! Excellent first installment to an enthralling Read... I cannot wait for the next set detailing these character's lives!! I already owned JH Croix's "Slow and Steady #1: A Bad Boy Romantic Suspense (Shameless Southern Nights Book 4);" however, I agreed to review it as an ARC for her too. She's a talented author. I gladly recommend this book & her others as well based upon their own merits. These series definitely provides a wonderful Reading Rabbit hole full of spectacular reading!! Her books are definitely books you'll read, Reread, & READ again several times & not tire of... I know I have. All opinions expressed within this review are uniquely my own & freely given. Until next time... Happy Reading!

This is a little of what I imagine The Departed would look like if it has been set in a small town in the American south. Secrets, lies, and betrayal surround Sonny as he tries to get to the bottom of his father’s conviction. The bright spot in the middle of this mess is librarian Niki, an unlikely ally and complication in one. I love the direction this book is taking us in and I can’t wait to see what’s uncovered next in the Lovett saga.

I really enjoyed this first installment in the "Slow and Steady" trilogy. It was a definite page turner but of course has a cliffhanger. This is Sonny and Niki's story. He is the protective police officer and she is the sweet innocent librarian. This is a very fast paced, captivating start to the series. I cannot wait to read the next installment. *I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.*

Sonny never believed his father was guilty of the crime he went to jail for but had no proof. So he started looking into it on his own time but it seemed like everything he found had been blacked out and tampered with. Niki is the local librarian and she offers Sonny some help finding the answers he was looking for. Neither was really looking for a relationship but things heat up between them as threats are issued at them both. Can Sonny really find out what happened with his father before trouble finds him? Will Niki be safe with Sonny? This is an amazing story however it ends in a cliff hanger. The chemistry between Niki and Sonny sizzles with each turn of the page. This is a well written and very entertaining story. I would recommend it to anyone that loves to lose themselves in a great story. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book. I enjoyed it so much I got my own copy.
