My Review of One Southern Night by Marissa Carmel

One Southern was a really fun story! Despite it’s length, Marissa delivers a well written, detailed story between Kam and Laney. Lainey was a fun city girl transplanted to Alabama. She was smart mouthed, and sassy when it came to Kam; she wasn’t going to be “another touchdown in his end zone.” Kam was our QB can-do-no-wrong on the field or off…until he’s sidelined. I really liked seeing Laney and Kam’s relationship go from the flirty/she really wouldn’t give him the time of day to the I’ll give him a shot, he’s not as bad as I thought. I liked that her feelings didn’t change over night. We did get to see a friendship develop first. I REALLY liked these two together, Marissa writes awesome couples. I do want more Kam and Laney and I’d love to see more from them…and I’m not above tying Marissa to her computer (or phone) and making her write more about them!
