Troy Stevenson is the Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Shear-water Ingram. He respects women, always cordial and respectful to the opposite sex. His loyalty is put to the test when a co-worker begins stalking him for her own.
Brooke Emerson is the new employee in the Library and Record Storage Department of Shear-water Ingram. One look at Troy, and her powerful lust gets the better of her.
Troy is married with a daughter and a son. Even though wife, Patty, is a bit distant and of a relaxed nature, it maintains equilibrium with his joie de vivre and spirit. They are both devoted to each other until frustrations at work cause him to turn to alcohol. One glance at Troy, and Brooke feels an instant attraction for him. He makes her weak in the knees; married or not, she finds him eye-candy. Brooke believes Patty is just plain and intends to show Troy she can offer more than his mousy wife. When Brooke learns there is discord within Troy’s household, she jumps at the chance to go after her eye-candy. Will Troy accept her advances or end up having an enemy after him?
Southern Man is a smooth flowing storyline that kept this reader interested. The characters are real. The plot is similar to many things that often happen in the workplace. Brooke is a nut case, in my viewpoint, and her character played out well. I thought Troy and Patty were good players as husband and wife, as they sought to maintain order in their life. Connie Chastain tells the story of a loving couple who face many obstacles, and find a way to face any temptation in their path. She chronicles a good tale, instilling, warmth and emotions in her players, to create a delightful story worth the read.
