“The serpent in the Garden of Good and Evil had nothing on Beckett. The Devil had sent down his best fallen angel to lure her into temptation.”
Before I go on, I do want to say that I have heard mentions of cheating banded about. In my opinion, which is just that, mine and I’m not discounting other’s feelings, this isn’t the case. Yes, Beck does pull a bit of a silly frustrating stunt, but no cheating is involved. Regardless of frustration factor, it actually plays a part to subsequent events in the story. Anyway…
“I’ll let you control me, Ginger. Any way you want. Anytime you want. For as long as you want.”
Dedicated, passionate and committed to his patients, ER doctor and commitmentphobe Beck is loved but also not-so-loved by the hospital board. And Virginia joining the management team could scupper his chances of promotion to ER Team Leader. Because have a history, one filled with passion, pain and regret, but from the moment they’re reacquainted the chemistry between them burns bright and Robin Covington does what she does well; balances emotion and heat.
“This is inevitable, fate.”
There were moments in this story where my heart hurt for Beck. His past is one no kid should endure, one that has left him with a more vulnerable side which opens up as the story unfolds, but he is surrounded by wonderful people who love him and this shone through. And the banter between himself, Jack, Lucky and Teague was as perfect as always. Ginger is perhaps a little more forgiving than I might be, but Beck is a charmer so who knows. What I do know is that Robin has wrapped this series up nicely and, seeing as it’s been a while since I’ve read the previous books, I think a re-read could be on the cards (I’ll turn a blind eye to the fact that there’s a continuity error with regards to Lucky and his brother’s name being the same between books). All in all, The Boys are Back in Town is a series I’d not hesitate in recommending you check out.
Copy received courtesy of Entangled Publishing via NetGalley for an honest and unbiased opinion.
Told from dual points of views, both Beck and Ginger both have similar troubled pasts that have shaped the way they are today. Beck is a former bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks that got shown how to make something of his life when he was a teen. Ginger is portrayed as a fairly strong independent woman who has been hurt before by not only Beck but in dealing with her family issues that impacted on her years ago. Throughout the book we get to see some of their more vulnerable sides but also see the heat that quickly re-ignites in these former lovers that makes you realise these two could be what each other needs. While both characters are fairly likeable, especially Beck and his backstory, if I’m truly honest I struggled to connect with the characters as the book progressed. I’m not entirely sure why but personally I just didn’t. Beck’s character annoyed me when towards the end of the book because while you could understand his actions it kind of undermined what had happened building up again to that point.
Southern Nights and Secrets is a well written, easy to read and relatively steady to fast paced book. It can be read as a standalone with a HEA.
Overall, I found the book to be ok. While I just couldn’t seem to fully connect to the two characters, as I was intrigued to see where the plot was going to go, I persevered and finished the book and did enjoy parts of it so I would recommend it.

Beck (Beckett) Sutherland is finally doing what he loves. He's a trauma Dr. in a busy ER, hoping to be named Team Leader to his staff. He grew up around crime, his father a drug runner, abusive and even Beck spent some time working the streets himself. But it's all behind him now. He's a gifted physician with a sixth sense for detecting abuse, and a reputation as a dare devil and having an amazing "bed side manner" with women. Suddenly, there is a potential risk to his appointment to Team Leader. He sees the woman he has always loved and tried to forget. They met and fell in love in college......then he dumped her and slept with her roommate.
Virginia (Ginger) Crawford is the new Director of Operations for a busy Virginia Hospital. She has no idea that Beck is also there until an incident in the ER explodes, and he is the center of it. He destroyed her heart, and time has not helped.
Ginger grew up in home with a Navy SEAL father, endlessly deployed, and an alcoholic mother. It was up to her to keep their home running and taking care of her sister. Seeing Beck pulls all the old feeling to the surface. Soon neither one of them can avoid the sexual draw. Both of their careers depend on their actions......
I have enjoyed every page of this series, best friends considered "bad boys, finding the women who complete them. This novel can be read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend the full series.
I received this ARC from the publisher and NetGalley for an honest review.
Enter in a spunky past lover in Virginia, and her new job as his "boss" and you get one hell of a ride to finishing out The Boys series. Too bad more hotties didn't move to town!
(However, I wish there was just a teeny bit more on Ginger. She seemed like a great character but she seemed a little stiff. I mean, other than how hot she is in bed and the challenge she posed to Beck back in grad school, why'd he fall in love with her? I *get* why she'd fall in love with Beck: he's funny, smart, hot, funny, hot, mysterious, hot, cares for people, hot. But why *her*?)
That said, I'd read this again. For Beck.
