Dylan Morgan has it all; a prestigious career as a Detective for the city of Charleston, devilish good looks and a selection of girls whenever he chooses. Southern born and raised, he lives by the pearls his Granddaddy imparted to him. But when he questions his worth to the citizens of Charleston, his fears are realized when someone close to him is in danger. Does he follow the letter of the law as his position dictates, or does he follow his conscience, which will cause him to straddle a fine line? Can Dylan overcome the demons he creates for himself? Or will he toss everything away in a moment of reckoning?
Claire Stuart has fought hard her whole life not to fall into the same trap as her mother. She refuses to allow men to use her and toss her away. Needing to escape the hardship her family creates, she seeks education over acceptance and uproots herself from the backwoods of Kentucky to the charm of Charleston. She knows all about Dylan Morgan and his choice to bed every woman he comes across, yet she finds herself unable to listen to the warnings her mind and friends give her. Can Claire ignore Dylan’s past and allow herself to let someone in? Someone who could shatter her very soul.
Cayce Poponea / Absolute Power I received this book in exchange for an honest review Absolute Power (Southern Justice book 1) Blown away by this one.... Absolute Power was absolutely perfect! Set in the south this story definitely pulled at my heartstrings. The attachment I formed for the true life and spot on characters could be construed as obsessive. To say the least I LOVED IT! Thankfully it was the first of more stories to come and made the final pages more bearable. Truly I could have continued to read several more chapters. Author Cayce Poponea has set a precedent for the hot southern gentleman and so called damsel in distress. Do not take that literally! Dylan Morgan and his brothers were raised up to be proper gentleman. Claire is brilliant young woman trying to escape her backwoods family legacy.(Being from Kentucky I got a definite chuckle out of this perception) When theses two collide... watch out! Full of emotional up and downs, I was crying one minute and mad as hell the next! I wouldn't be a responsible reviewer if I didn't urge y'all to read this series next. Don't wait... don't put it on your tbr list... download it now. You will not regret it. (Promise) Five bright southern stars for Absolute Power ~Jennifer Rebels and Readers
