    I had to edit my review as all my pictures had disappeared I asked for the update not to be added to my feed, so apologies if this old review shows up on your feed.Decided to read this one after reading Geri s review It was written over 25 years ago but I had a hankering for something like this It was back in the day when men were Real Men, wore jeans and boots, had hairy chests and stubbled jaws, they smoked, they fucked, they drank, they didn t care what folks thought of them but now and I had to edit my review as all my pictures had disappeared I asked for the update not to be added to my feed, so apologies if this old review shows up on your feed.Decided to read this one after reading Geri s review It was written over 25 years ago but I had a hankering for something like this It was back in the day when men were Real Men, wore jeans and boots, had hairy chests and stubbled jaws, they smoked, they fucked, they drank, they didn t care what folks thought of them but now and again one of them could be brought to their knees by a beautiful woman First time reading this author I think her writing style genre might have changed a bit over the years will check some of her other books out This was not even available on Kindle in my neck of the woods but I wanted to read it so bad that I got the paperback, an OLD paperback edition If her swift calculations were correct, Cash Boudreaux was approaching forty, so he should have known better to say something so flippant about an seriously ill man His manners hadn t improved with maturity He was as coarse, as rude, as undisciplined as he d been in his youth His mother had exercised absolutely no control over him whatsoever She had let him run wild He was constantly into mischief that had ceased to be cute by the time he reached junior high school, where he fast became the scourge of the public school system Heaven, Louisiana had never spawned such a hell raiser as Cash Boudreaux I m never kind to a woman His walk, all his movements were masculine His lips closed around the filtered tip He struck a match on the doorjamb, then cupped his hands around the flame while he lit the cigarette Just what I thought, he said roughly You put on all those ladylike airs but you re just like a firecracker on the Fourth of July, ready to ignite, ready to explode He jerked her forward and rubbed against her Feel that I ve got just the match to light your fuse She slapped him hard.His eyes narrowed dangerously What s the matter, not used to Filth, Mr Boudreaux No I m not used to filth What a Bitch the sister is hope she gets her come uppance Not sure some of the words used in the book would go down too well in this day and age but I am sure there are still prejudices like that in plenty of corners of the world Stop, she moaned You want this as much as I do No Yes, he flicked her earlobe with his tongue How long has it been since you got fucked real good b Smooth fucking talker is our Cash.And what about Daddy and Daddy s prejudices aren t much better now we can see that the apple didn t fall far from the tree He s a queer In my day if one of those crossed our paths, we d beat the hell out of him You want to talk about it, I suppose About what Fucking you Sure, why not Let s talk about it Alright She drew a deep breath to show him how bored she was with the subject It was a mistake to go to bed with you I regret it It happened I wish it hadn t but it did I take full responsibility for my actions, but I intend to forget the whole thing I expect you to as well You do Yes, I do His whiskey flavored breath was as balmy as the night air when he laughed into her stormy face He leaned forward, aligning his body against hers Not bloody likely Do you know what it means to a poor white trash bastard kid like me to make Miss Schyler Crandall come Then again, he might have some words of wisdom for her Be careful that your benevolence doesn t work against you, Schyler Vast experience has taught me that folks dearly love to bite the hand that feeds them It gives them a perverse satisfaction that s just plain human nature You can t change that Make sure nobody mistakes your love and charity for weakness Folks claim they admire saints But fact is they despise them They gloat in seeing them stumble and fall flat on their asses Jigger Flynn Cash, I don t know what to make of you I warned you that I was never kind to women Don t expect me to be an different with you My God, what she had just done was unthinkable Yet, it had happened She wasn t sorry, only deeply disturbed, because while he d been holding her she d been inundated with him She had forgotten her problems She had forgotten everything including Belle Terre You cannot trust him Do, and we re doomed He ll do anything, say anything to bring us down Don t doubt that for a single instant And to be honest, I seriously did not know who was the Bad Guy was on tenderhooks towards the end of the book but of course, I got my HEA

    10 STARS PERFECTION SHEER PERFECTION I can t stress how much I LOVED THIS It was the BEST SB book I ve read to date, the best It reminded me of After The night, by Linda Howard, a book I consider one of the best I ve ever read Don t ask me why this book made me think of that book, maybe it was the atmosphere, the return of a character meant to finish something, the beauty of the surroundingsnot sure, but in my mind I saw similarities I loved everything here, EVERY SINGLE THING Schy 10 STARS PERFECTION SHEER PERFECTION I can t stress how much I LOVED THIS It was the BEST SB book I ve read to date, the best It reminded me of After The night, by Linda Howard, a book I consider one of the best I ve ever read Don t ask me why this book made me think of that book, maybe it was the atmosphere, the return of a character meant to finish something, the beauty of the surroundingsnot sure, but in my mind I saw similarities I loved everything here, EVERY SINGLE THING Schyler, whose name I kept pronouncing phonetically not how it was meant to be, S k y l e r She was a wonderful character who couldn t help falling for the rough and complicated Cash Boudreaux I loved Schyler, I admired her strength, patience, resolve and kindness Triciaseriously, this woman was a shrewd and vindictive snake I hope she suffers endlessly Ken Howell, what a weak and pathetic excuse for a man Cash BoudreauxI loved him, loved him, loved him He wasn t perfect Far from it He could be an arrogant asshole who used perversity as a defense mechanism If it wasn t for the intense empathy I felt for him, I wouldn t have come to love him as much as I did The pain and heartache from always knowing you didn t belong, weren t meant to belong was excruciating I think he suffered so much and enduredthan his share His feelings were always hidden behind animosity and cruelty, but I felt him, and believed him to be the man meant for Schyler His characterization was incredibly sexy and unpolished, I can t say enough about him except that I LOVED him And can SB write a sexy time scene Filled with sensuality and raw emotion, these are some of the best and most beautifully written sex scenes I ve read.Up until this point, I ve readrecent stuff by SB, but this was the best so far It was filled with stereotypes, racism, class divisions and some pretty backwards thinking folks, I tell you But it was accurate and I wouldn t be surprised to find people like that still walking around But it gave this book authenticity and a thick and believable plot I can t recommend this enough, it s going onto my favorites pile, loved it

    Slow Heat in Heaven has been recommended to me a few years ago, but I just kept procrastinating, grasping at any number of ridiculous reasons It took this year s holiday destination New Orleans , for me to finally pick it up, thanks to the book s rural Louisiana setting To be fair, for a while A Confederacy of Dunces had seemed a serious competititor, but then when it comes to holiday reading material, the frivolous stuff always wins out.Just for the record, I don t generally read romance nov Slow Heat in Heaven has been recommended to me a few years ago, but I just kept procrastinating, grasping at any number of ridiculous reasons It took this year s holiday destination New Orleans , for me to finally pick it up, thanks to the book s rural Louisiana setting To be fair, for a while A Confederacy of Dunces had seemed a serious competititor, but then when it comes to holiday reading material, the frivolous stuff always wins out.Just for the record, I don t generally read romance novels says the little snob, with over 100 of em on her read shelf.For those of you dreading the soap opera feel, rest assured you ain t getting away There s a rich family with a big house, and vast expanses of land There s an ailing father on the brink of death, so naturally the feuding sisters are not far off either There s lots of intrigue, along with a hefty dose of misunderstandings, generally solved by someone finally saying Oh no, I had no idea you thought that You should know I would NEVER EVER do that cue outraged pearl clutching And of course, there s a hot romance to be had between the gorgeous but utterly broken Schyler Crandall, and the mysterious, not to mention hotter than the Louisiana sun at noon, Cash Boudreaux Yes, I greatly enjoyed every single spark of that chemistry That is when I wasn t busy cursing their many will they won t they dances.The setting on the other hand, that was just masterfully done As far as I m concerned, the book s biggest assets were the amazing descriptions of rural Louisiana, with its sweltering heat, dangerous swamps, and treacherous bayous So glad I managed to finish it before I got to the swamp tour during my trip I totally spent that hour and a half picturing Schyler and Cash, frolicking amidst the Cajun country wilderness.Score 2.7 5 starsIf you enjoy your lurid soap operas in prose format, I would definitely not miss a single page of this book If you re not the biggest romance fan, but feel you can stomach some syrup for the promise of an amazing journey through the rural Louisiana, deep breath and take the plunge Otherwise, you can look forward to spending a few hours complaining about soap opera cliches in general

    A dynastic, dark melodrama Yikes With a sis like Trish, who needs hatchet killers Lizzy Borden might be an improvement Written in 1988, it s dated Cash is a chauvinist, fought in Vietnam, smokes cigarettes Language includes the racist N word and homophobic slurs but not by the lead couple I may have enjoyed this25 years ago, but cannot recall reading it.Some folks love this story, but ugh I began to hate it Too unpleasant Depressing I didn t laugh Not even a smile Just lot A dynastic, dark melodrama Yikes With a sis like Trish, who needs hatchet killers Lizzy Borden might be an improvement Written in 1988, it s dated Cash is a chauvinist, fought in Vietnam, smokes cigarettes Language includes the racist N word and homophobic slurs but not by the lead couple I may have enjoyed this25 years ago, but cannot recall reading it.Some folks love this story, but ugh I began to hate it Too unpleasant Depressing I didn t laugh Not even a smile Just lots of unsavory characters doing lots of unsavory things I like some of SB s books especially Lethal but with a book this long, I neededlight moments and upbeat characters to balance the dark After reading 450 pages of mistrust and misery, I get one or two optimistic, loving pages at the end Beware, vague spoilers follow, but the big plot surprises are secret About three rape scenes m f, and m m, and gang rape and plenty of sex, yet not one singlelove scene Sex, yes Lovemaking No loving tenderness between Cash and Schyler Skyler until nearly the last page And I did not care to voyeuristically sit in on slutty Rhoda, first with Cash, then with Dale, then with Cash, then My favorite character is Cash, but that s not saying much He s a mean one, and sleeps around like a slut, but does right by others, in his own way I sympathize with him I liked his healing abilities, too He clearly loved Schyler, even though he wouldn t admit it I sometimes liked Schyler, but she bugged me, killing those poor creatures, letting Ken kiss her a few times and feel her up, and never trusting Cash Right up until the end, never believing in him After all he did for her The scene when Cash showed her that ___ was robbing the company She said what Did that But I liked how she treated Gayla, and how she handled Mrs Graves She definitely had guts SETTING The Louisiana setting is vividly described a plantation home called Belle Terre yup, like Tara, and Schyler is Scarlet, trying to save the farm , located just outside a corrupt town the sheriff with the unlikely name of Heaven Sandra Brown pens strong descriptions of the forest, the bayou, the huge rattlesnake, the malevolent and ugly Jigger Flynn, and the horrible pit bull fight.SECONDARY CHARACTERS Sister Trish is purely psycho The sweetest moment in the book involved Gayla and Jimmy Don I also liked seeing Jigger get his comeuppance That was sweet Old patriarchal Cotton bugged me, the way he treated Cash What an idiot, to make such a promise to his coldhearted wife, Macy How unfair to keep his promise at the expense of the living, long after Macy died.SUSPENSE Someone was in cahoots with the view spoiler banker Who is the person in the passenger seat Who is he conniving with on the phone hide spoiler Duh It was obvious Also, why didn t anyone suspect that ___ killed ___ It seems obvious The timing is a dead give away, right There is clear motive This is a small town, but the investigation was immediately closed for lack of suspects Wanted a slightly different ending It was okay, but abrupt Needed an epilogue.CONTENTS Racial slurs the N word , explicit sex about nine scenes, different couples , swearing, religious profanity, vicious dog fight scene, rape, gang rape

    The story was like an 80 s southern soap opera, full of interesting characters and crazy drama My main issues were that the romance wasn t believable, they barely seemed to like each other beyond screwing before some random I Love You s at the end Also, there really wasn t a character to root for, they all did some pretty nasty stuff The hero, Cash, was a sexy Cajun but he also was a man whore who came off pretty harsh during parts and it was hard to see him liking the heroine forthan s The story was like an 80 s southern soap opera, full of interesting characters and crazy drama My main issues were that the romance wasn t believable, they barely seemed to like each other beyond screwing before some random I Love You s at the end Also, there really wasn t a character to root for, they all did some pretty nasty stuff The hero, Cash, was a sexy Cajun but he also was a man whore who came off pretty harsh during parts and it was hard to see him liking the heroine forthan sex and her home I needed a littletenderness shown to her from him The heroine was ok but came off as snobby and making snap judgements too much She killed two dogs for basically no reason, it was a cruel and stupid thing to do The dogs were fighting dogs and one had attacked her but what she did was not a solution and it was hard to forgive She came off as judgmental and quick to think the worst of Cash no matter what, even though he was a hard worker and figured out who was stealing from them, she treated him like crap for no reason Her sister and her BIL were left to run roughshod over too many things with no consequences, Schyler just forgave everything.I listened to this on audio and I think that might have made some of the sexist and racist language harder to deal with, I think that stuff is harder to hear than read I liked the hero s Cajun accent on audio.Overall, an interesting drama filled southern story but the romance wasn t believable and most of the characters were not likable But the hero was kind of sexy
