Southern Roots (Southern Roots #1) by Julie Morgan

Returning home never looked so good... 
Home from college to help her mother on the family farm, Lexi Griffin expects things to be quiet and normal. She's back in her hometown, and everything is the same as she left it, including the slowly mending broken heart given to her by her high school sweet heart, Blaine. 

After years away, Robert Shaw has returned to his hometown for his father's wedding, looking forward to reconnect with old friends, but he has no clue what's in store for him when he sees Lexi again. Sparks fly between the two, and Lexi is a bit reluctant to start anything with Robert, especially when past wounds haven't healed the way they should have. Robert is determined to have her, against all odds and good sense. A girl like her came around once in a lifetime, and he never forgot her. 

And then Blaine comes back to town, intent on rekindling what he had with Lexi, even though his past cheating and drug use has slightly soured him in her eyes. She still loves him, but can she forgive him? 

As Lexi takes a leap of faith, she suddenly faces the ultimate betrayal from one she trusted. Will she realize the truth in time or will corruption ruin the best thing that has just walked out of her life?

My review:
What is it about Lexi?  She has been on/off again with hometown hero Blaine.  He has gone off to rock and roll success but he continually cheats on her so she has finally broken it off.  This is good for Bobby Ray who has come home for his daddy’s wedding and is totally smitten with Lexi from day one.  Bobby starts out okay with being Lexi’s rebound but finds himself wanting more.
This is a sweet small town romance.  There is love, sex, betrayal, friends and enemies.  Lexi and Bobby Ray kept me riveted from the first page to the last.  I will admit to some trepidation because Bobby Ray seemed too good to be true but then he proved he was just as human as the rest of us.  I truly got a kick out of this book.
