Product description

Product Description

Lila Mae Guidry is a Southern girl through and through. As a fourth-generation Latter-day Saint in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, she’s proud of her heritage as both a Southerner and a Saint—and she doesn’t take kindly to people who disparage either. Ten years ago, Max Archer was just that kind of jerk. As the mission president’s son, Max spent his entire three years mocking the South . . . and teenage Lila. After Max’s family moved away, Lila forgot about her sworn enemy. Almost. When a new job brings a grown-up Max back to Baton Rouge, Lila is less than thrilled with his reappearance, especially since everyone seems intent on throwing her together with this old adversary. Yet fight as she may, Lila soon realizes resistance is futile—their connection is undeniable. Max embodies everything she wants in a man—except perhaps the most important thing—her life is rooted in the city she loves, but his dreams are bigger than Baton Rouge. With such mismatched visions of the future, Max and Lila are faced with a life-altering decision: jeopardize their aspirations or risk losing love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Southern hospitality and magic, with Romance at it's finest! 3 September 2016

Romance, clean, Christian, Latter-day Saint setting, but really something anyone could read.
This came at a perfect moment my way. Reading Lila Mae and Max's story was such a beautiful read for me! MJ books often are funny, and humorous. This was a little bit more serious. I loved her picture of Louisiana. It made me want to go there and experience it for myself. Lila Mae's passion for teaching, for her students, for her family, for the people in her circle, made her a beautiful, heartfelt character. Max's jump into work ethic, whole-hearted enthusiasm, joy at being with Lila Mae while trying to figure out their 'journey' from acquaintances with a past, to friends and more than friends with a future was a beautiful read. Both of their passions for life, their obvious chemistry and attraction to each other, their family loyalty, their love for life, food, kindnesses, their devotion to service (at church), made for a beautiful, heartfelt, wonderful journey. There was such a magic, almost a bit of pixie-dust in this novel. I rarely give 5's. Obviously this is a feel-good story, but it was so well-crafted. I loved the optimism they had to change the world, one person at a time and bring hope to people around them, along with staying true to who they were. This was a magical, lovely read, with all the promise of something wonderful to come!
Plus the Etta James song and Elvis.... Perfectly magical heartfelt, heart-tugging moments. Their compromise at the end, although they both came to it different ways was really lovely. MJ is a master writer. She brings sympathy, charm, characters we care about, hope, faith, magic and wit to her writing. I will always be a fan and gobble up anything she has written. This deserves to be read by a wide audience. HEA at it's finest and with dose of wonderful southern charm! I can't wait to read her next novel!!

Some of the best books I have ever read (and re-read) have been written by Melanie Jacobson. This woman communicates to my soul with her love of life, her integrity and her deep God-given love for His children. Her devotion and commitment to God glow in every word she writes.
She takes her "somehow" writing philosophy to heart as explained in this book as advice from another teacher. I was recognizing that quality in her just a few pages before she put into words what she had helped me experience first-hand. I knew I had been taught by a master teacher. (I'm going to rephrase poorly, but basically, if the hero of the story "somehow" gets out of an impossible situation, then the author doesn't know what they are doing well enough write them into an impossible situation and then not be able to describe it.) What an amazing quality to not just "click" with the characters, but "click" with the author! Melanie Jacobson is that kind of woman.

I have loved every book Melanie has written, so it's no surprise that as soon as I downloaded my copy of Southern Charmed I devoured it. I was up until the wee hours of the morning finishing because I just couldn't stop. I loved the southern setting and the cute phrases that popped up throughout the story. The main character, Lila Mae, was equal parts sweet and sassy, a girl who knows exactly what she wants and doesn't want, but who is also always thinking of others. Our swoon worthy hero is funny and romantic (and hot!) and refreshingly self aware for a guy. :) And all of the side characters, especially Lila's mother and her student Kiara are loveable and add so much depth to the central love story. This book is sweet, funny and, as the name implies, very charming. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good clean romance! Just don't stay up too late reading. ;)

3.0 out of 5 stars He deserved better than her :( 25 October 2016

I love this author and I was SOOOOO excited for this book, even paid full price. But I was disappointed, the relationship between the two main characters didn't really have a zing. It was a little annoying that she kept bringing up his shortcomings and then didn't want to sacrifice anything for their relationship...he deserved better...

I loved this book from beginning to end. I have always had a soft spot for southern accents and their charming sayings in the south. I love, love Melanie Jacobson books. They pull me in and I feel like I am actually there. Her writing is amazing. She writes funny, passionate but clean books that tug at your heartstrings. (Sigh) Books that you can't put down. Lila Mae and Max were so fun and theirs was a romance made in heaven. Their conversations were so clever and fun and Max was just yummy. I loved all the supporting characters too. This will be one that I will read again and again.
