One unforgettable night leads to an unlikely shared connection, and unlikely connections never go unnoticed by the good folks in Green Valley, Tennessee. . .
Jackson James follows the rules. He has to. He’s a sheriff’s deputy in a super small town with a super big personality. However, strict adherence to the law during the day has been enjoyably balanced by rakish rules at night. Jackson, typically happy to protect and serve (and serve, and serve), starts questioning the value of wayward evenings when they begin to feel more like being waylaid rather than getting laid. Could it be that Green Valley's most eligible—and notorious—bachelor longs for something (and someone) real?
Mega movie star Raquel Ezra follows only one rule: always leave them wanting more. Strict adherence to this single rule has served her well. Studio execs, reporters, audiences, fans, lovers—no one can get enough of the smart, savvy, and sexy bombshell. But when “generous offers” begin to feel more like excessive demands, years of always leaving has the elusive starlet longing for something (and perhaps someone) lasting.
When Raquel abruptly returns to the quirky Tennessee hamlet, her path crosses with the delectable deputy with whom she spent one unforgettable night. Unfortunately, scandal and intrigue soon follow. Raquel and Jackson must decide which is more important: following their rules? Or, at long last, finding something real.
TOTALLY FOLKED is a standalone, contemporary romantic comedy novel and book #1 in the Good Folk: Modern Folktales series.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
My love for Green Valley runs deep and I was thrilled that Penny Reid was taking me back there. For Jackson freaking James! I have been waiting for his book because he's part of the fabric of this quirky small town.
Jackson, bless him, was just a good guy. He worked hard to reform his playboy image and was doing pretty great until Raquel rolled back into town....Cue the sparks. Despite time and distance and life in general, both Jackson and Rae couldn't get their whirlwind night out of their heads.
Low-ish on drama and full of missed opportunities, Totally Folked had me captivated from the start. The anticipation, the longing, the want for something different, something more made Rae and Jackson's second-chance romance so worth the wait. Plus a hearty dose of Winston interference always makes for a good time.
