4 stars-- Kentucky Home (Southern Comfort #1) by Sarah Title

I've been having fun trying new authors and Sarah Title caught my eye. I'm glad, too. Kentucky Home hit the spot!
The Gist: Mallory needed to escape an abusive husband so her friend Lucas decided to take her home to his family in Kentucky. They'd pretend to be engaged and she could stay safe with his family and regroup. Problem is? Well, she kind of falls for his growly older brother Keith in the mean time. Oops!
Mallory and Keith were fantastic. He's growly, a bit anti-social but with a caring and thoughtful heart. She's coming back to life. Finding her spirit and courage. She can be a little prickly but has a good heart and is trying her best.

I loved them together, too. They softened each other's edges. Gave support and comfort and helped each other move on from heartbreak and pain-- her's an abusive marriage, his losing a wife and child in an accident. It wasn't all roses, though. Woo early on the two butt heads and frustrate the heck out of each other. But once they get going it's so nice (and has some good steam, too).

All in all, Kentucky Home was a great read. I really like Title's style. There's an ease to her writing and the story that made it so comfortable to fall into and enjoy. I'm ready to see the next sibling find their match.

Mallory Thompson and Keith Carson are far from impressed with each other when she arrives at his family's horse farm, fleeing an abusive marriage. Mallory sees nothing but a gruff man who's as patronizing as her soon-to-be ex-husband, and Keith has no time for a city girl who's afraid of dogs. But the struggling Wild Rose is too small to allow anyone to keep their distance. . .

As one by one, Mallory wins the hearts of his family, from his cranky father to his headstrong younger sister and three-legged dog, Keith finds himself more than a little attracted to her stubborn charm. And the longer Mallory stays, the more she realizes Keith is nothing like the overbearing bully she married--and the more she fantasizes about being in his strong, loving arms. Maybe some folks get a second chance to make a first impression after all. . .
