REVIEW: Conner Smith and Rhonda Macintyre have known each other since they were children. They started as friends but fell in love in high school. Conner and Rhonda made plans to spend the rest of their lives together. But something happens on the way to happily-ever-after. Conner was offered the chance to work in Dubai for a large tech and gaming company for three years. His plan didn't include taking Rhonda with him while he made his fortune. Rhonda's heart is broken, and she breaks off all communication with Connor. Connor returns years later, expecting Rhonda to be waiting for him with open arms. He is shocked to find that Rhonda wants nothing to do with him. She sees him as the man who claims to love her but had no qualms about leaving her behind for years. Connor made a decision that affects them both without consulting her. Will Rhonda be able to move past her feelings of abandonment and give their love a second chance?

Rhonda is a trust fund baby who is not defined by her financial status or her overbearing and controlling mother. She is not a timid person who will toe the line to make her parents happy. Rhonda has a mind of her own and takes control of her life and chooses her own future. Conner is a gifted gaming designer who was able to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a successful businessman by going to work for the largest gaming company in the world. Although by gaining financial security, he lost something personal along the way.

Finally, the author reveals the details surrounding Conner and Rhonda's story in
SEPTEMBER SONG. I have to say it was well worth the wait. Connor and Rhonda are childhood friends who fall in love in high school, much to the disapproval of her snobbish parents. The author gave us a glimpse of their attraction in the first two books in this series. My curiosity regarding the obvious tension between Connor and Rhonda has been satisfied. This much-anticipated love story is well-written and captures your attention from the beginning. The characters are well-defined and likable. There is just enough drama to make the story interesting and believable. The author has taken the familiar rich girl, poor boy story, and given it her own twist. Well done, Ms. Taylor!

This story was an excellent read. I enjoyed reading about Rhonda and Conner's bumpy road to happily-ever-after.
SEPTEMBER SONG is another great addition to Southern Seduction. I highly recommend it for your reading enjoyment
