Publisher's Summary

I knew two things when I meet my new boss Greyson Parker Montgomery III. One, he’s an egomaniac. And two, we’re going to get naked. Something I didn’t know? That I’d end up pregnant.

No one is more surprised by our off-the-charts chemistry than me. I’m a free spirit with a passion for design and a taste for the bohemian. Greyson is a cocky venture capitalist who’s as pretentious as his sharply cut power suits.

He owns half of Charleston, and has the other half at his beck and call. But the only place he owns me is in bed...or in the backseat of his car, boneless and begging for mercy.

We argue over contracts and costs all day long. Behind closed doors, however, we engage in a different kind of business. The kind that has me surrendering to his unique brand of dominance.

Our no-strings attached arrangement suits me just fine. Until I wake up one morning with what I think is a wicked hangover. Only it’s not a hangover.

I thought Greyson was a typical “greed is good” grump. But when he demands to be involved in the life we accidentally created, I start to see a different side of him. One that’s more gentleman than jerk.

Am I crazy to think we could be a family together? Or is making me fall for him just another one of his power plays?

Southern Gentleman is a stand-alone, full-length, accidental pregnancy/enemies-to-lovers romance. The books in the Charleston Heat series are interconnected stand-alone romances, and can be listened to in any order.

CHARLESTON CHARM, CHALLENGES & MAGIC

Another entertaining (and hot) five star romance by JP and a good addition to the Charleston Heat series.. each book intertwine their characters but they could easily be listened to as stand-alone stories. Greyson is a workaholic trying to atone for his past.. he starts off as being an emotionally dormant one-dimensional all work no play character who only wants backseat no strings quickies with Julia . But one of those rendezvous will have a life-altering impact on both their lives with an accidental pregnancy and it’ll be the peanut that starts possibilities. Possibilities of character growth, opening up of hearts and an exorcizing and letting go of misplaced guilt-ridden demons - which allows forgiveness, healing, hope and love to flourish into a loving tight family unit and happily ever afters. Julia’s understanding, patience, down-to-earth guidance, reality checks and love slowly strips Greyson’s layers and underneath he’s actually a soft sweet romantic teddy bear. This had a feisty enemies start as the unwanted chemistry between Greyson and Julia flared and immediately morphed into emotionless trysts.. then JP takes you on a winding yet warm journey as they both stepped-up-to-the-plate of co-parenthood and partnerships. It’s a slow-build as the well-written layers deliciously peel away, it’s a wonderful introduction to close friends and a loving family, it‘s a letting go of the past and leaping for a future for Greyson, it‘s a strong woman making room in her world for what life unexpectedly throws at her and it‘s a beautiful moulding and meshing of two worthy lives. It’s got lots of sexcapades within the smoulder too. It’s also an awesomely narrated easy listen as Joe and Emma bring the dual POV Southern-style chapters to life with their talented vocal range and give its charming characters heartbeats. Worth a credit? Yup.. this definitely has my vote.

Grey and Julia

The third installment of the series brings us Greyson and Julia. They seem like oil and water, he's stuffy and she's a bit boho. But they crave each other. So much that they immediately start fooling around in the backseat of his car, regularly. Hate f*cking is their thing. Then, you guessed it, she becomes pregnant. It's a story of growth, compromise, forgiveness and love. I personally didn't see a 'wrong' or 'right' person, I felt they both needed to compromise and learn. The narration was wonderful, Joe and Emma's delivery of southern Charleston accents were spot on. To top it off, Emma has to read the romance novels in an English accent - and that's perfection. Her male voice delivery of Joe's famous F*****ck kind of rivals him too. Also we get to see Olivia and Eli's wedding! And more of Luke too!!

Charleston Heat!

Another amazing love story by Jessica Peterson! I love the Charleston Heat series! While this is book #3 in the series it can absolutely be read as a standalone. In Southern Gentleman we meet Greyson, a venture capitalist and Julia, an English lit professor and architectural designer in her spare time. This book has a captivating story line, interesting and well developed characters as well as enough swoon and steam to melt your Kindle or listening device. The narration by Joe Arden and Emma Wilder is phenomenal, they bring Grey and Julia to life in the most spectacular way! When Greyson and Julia meet at a job site he’s financing and she’s decorating, they fight like cats and dogs over every design detail and every penny in the budget. Their love/hate relationship quickly turns into passionate affair that surprises both of them and their fling quickly develops into so much more... “My heart rises. Through my chest, throat. Mouth. It’s outside my body. It doesn’t belong to me anymore.” The question now - is Grey going to be able to let go off his past to be Julia’s future?

Great enemies to lovers story!

Greyson and Julia's story is full of hate and so much love! These two have amazing heat and chemistry and when Julia ends up pregnant, all bets are off. These two each have a vulnerability to them. Grey is so worried about letting people down after past mistakes and Julia is alone and wants nothing but to have a family, even if it's unconventional. The story was good and made me feel so many things! Another good story in this series! The narrators did a great job bringing this story to life!

Touched me on so many levels

Audio Review I’m loving this series and I have to say listening to Southern Gentleman was a wonderful experience, the narrators, Joe Arden and Emma Wilde did a fantastic job bringing this book to life. This is Greyson and Julia’s romance and it was a story that drew me in and captivated from the first page to the last line. I fell hook, line and sinker for this couple and I wanted more. Julia is a very special type of person and she does her utmost to show Greyson there is more to life than work and if you are prepared to try you can get a happy medium. I loved how Greyson stepped up and became involved in Julia’s pregnancy and really wanted to be part of the baby they created. I loved the chemistry and the banter this couple shared throughout this great read or listen in my case. This book left me smiling and in a world that’s a bit crazy at the moment what more can you ask for. Southern Gentleman touched me on so many levels and I highly recommend this gem. Great story, great characters and great narration.

Entertaining

Having read or listened to several books by Jessica Peterson, I enjoyed her style of writing and the narrators Joe Arden and Emma Wilder did justice to the story with their entertaining performance. Ms.Peterson wove a story with characters you couldn’t help but fall for. This is Greyson and Julia’s story and I was hooked from the first chapter. I fell hard and fast for Greyson and Julia, both separately and together. The chemistry that sizzles between them is intense and I loved the banter. Greyson is a workaholic and I loved that as there relationship progressed, Julia was able to help him get a better work/life balance that he desperately needs. There were times I laughed out loud and Greyson was totally swoon worthy when he stepped up to be involved in Julia’s pregnancy and the baby they created . It is a story of accepting the past, of letting it go and in doing so creating a wonderful future together. By the end of the book, I was left with a smile on my face. Southern Gentleman is a little gem that ticked the boxes for me.

Not exciting

I was hoping for a more exciting story. It was pretty much predictable and had no twists or turns to make it more dramatic and fun.

4.25 Stars

I've really enjoyed listening to this series on audiobook. Emma Wilder and especially Joe Arden nail that southern charm. Grayson and Julia just worked for me. There was no OW drama which is rare to see and the drama didn't feel forced. The descriptions this author creates really bring the environment and the characters to live. I cannot wait until the next one. I volunteered to listen and review an ALC of this. All opinions are my own.

Wow

Wow this one takes you on an absolute roller coaster. You start off thinking wow the chemistry but that is just going to burn out and you leave the book loving the main characters wishing for just a scrap more of their lives. I loved it I loved that the characters weren’t typical not arguing and easy. Amazing heat and storyline. I don’t think there could have been better narration this was fantastic

Loved!

I read this as an ebook and the narration just brought it to life! Joe Arden and Emma Wilder did a fantastic job. Oh. My. Gosh. Y'all. I loved this book from beginning to end. I adore me a growly hero and Greyson did not disappoint. I also love a take-no-crap heroine and Julia gave me that in spades. And, yeah, Jessica Peterson absolutely brings the heat with this one. Southern Gentleman is all about two people finding their way through an unexpected joy in the form of an unplanned pregnancy. "Parenthood in a nutshell?" "You don't get the excitement without the terror, I guess." Along the way, they both have to decide what is important to them and what they are willing to compromise on to be able to keep what's most important. They also get to know each other in ways that they never have before. I seriously went through ALL of the emotions reading this. It's just felt real. It's a journey full of hope, self-awareness, forgiveness, and love that is not to be missed. "Just because you're a villain in one story doesn't mean you can't be a hero in another" "Shadows come with the light. You can't have one without the other." This is book three is the Charleston Heat series, but you can definitely read it as a stand-alone. I highly recommend this one!
