Release Date:  January 20, 2014

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Marquita Valentine, comes the 4th book in her new adult series, BOYS OF THE SOUTH.

There's only one place in the world Lacey Evans feels normal- the roller derby track. When she laces up her skates and fastens her helmet, she's powerful and in charge. She knows exactly what to do and what to say. The rules are clear and penalties are enforced for those who don't follow them. But in the read world, she's far from powerful and in charge. She never knows exactly what to do and say. For years, she counted on one person to be exactly who he said he was--her best friend, Wyatt Tanaka. Only she changed the rules on him, without any warning, and now she's the one being punished.

Marine veteran, Wyatt Tanaka, came home to a heroes welcome. But he's hiding a secret, one that could potential destroy his life. He's doing the best he can, trying to cope with the guilt and the pain of the girl he loves pushing him away by doing all the things he'd sworn not too. Women, bars, drugs and drinking are what consume him. With Lacey's new rules, he has nothing to hold on to. Nothing to keep in from feeling dead.

Then one night, he goes too far, gets in too deep, and when the truth comes out... will Lacey keep pushing him away or help save him?

My Thoughts:

"Be brave, be Strong, and have faith."
Lacey has been prone to panic attacks since a very young age and its always been brushed off that she'll grow out of it but hasn't. So day to day she goes on a routine to make life comfortable and this routine is shaken when she find out that her parents are going on a mission to Turkey and can't bring her along. Now she must find a new normal and a place to stay. When her best friend Wyatts offers her a place to stay she's happy about it but worried that he doesnt understand that extent of her attacks.

Wyatt has PTSD after seeing the death of his friend when he was in the army. Now he drowns himself in booze, drugs and women. Lacey doesnt know the extend of his lifestyle but when she needs a place to stay he offers her to stay with him. Wyatt has always wanted Lacey but with her constantly reminding them they are friends he struggles to stay away. While she lives there he has to learn to curb his feelings and hidden lifestyle.

I just loved this book. I knew the characteristics of Lacey were to familiar because in ways I see it in myself everyday. It's rare that I come across book that has the same diagnosis that Lacey had. (Not even sure If I should say what it is because I don't want to spoil the book.) When I see it in books I really makes me happy. I loved this book, the characters were interesting. I loved that this book have Wyatt's and Lacey's POV. It helped me understand and enjoy their characters more. There was never a dull moment and this book was well-written. Overall I loved this story it worth 5 of 5 stars!

Can't wait for this book to come out, I would really love a physical copy of this book. Until then I'll be sure to check out the previous books.

"We all have our battles to fight, internal and external. None of them look the same, and they all feel make us feel like we're pathetic losers or freaks."
