Jimmie Joe Johnson has spent years living up to his hound dog reputation. If he can’t have the one female he truly wants, then any female will do. When he isn’t off diddlin’ some female, he’s practicing for pool playoffs, determined to get his pool team to Vegas. Not only for bragging rights, but for the free trip to ‘Sin City’ and cash prize that comes along with it.
Baylee Jean Brown has never gotten over her first and only love, Jimmie Joe Johnson. So when she discovers the truth about why he really ended things with her all those years before, she sets out to get her man back. And no other thigh-parting female is going to stand in her way. She just has to find a way to make him take notice of her, considering he’d been avoiding her since that day her spell-threatening aunt (yes, she does come from a long line of witches), threatened to place his man-parts in a jar on her windowsill.
Avoiding Baylee Jean Brown in a town the size of Possum Hollow is hard enough, but all of the sudden she’s dressing sexy and aiming all that female heat in his direction. He tries to convince her that she’s better off without him, but how can he expect her to listen to reason when his own heart and body refuse to? Now his man-parts are in a whole different kind of danger. Not because her aunt might still carry through with her threat to pickle them, but because he knows no other woman will ever do.
Title: His Redneck Girl

My Rating: 3 stars
If you love over the top characters, bursts of humor, don’t mind a ton of swearing and enjoy watching one woman go out and get her man… then you’ll have fun with His Redneck Girl.
The basics of what you need to know going in are pretty well described in the cover description. Just be aware that you might have read this before as this is a reissue of a story that came out in 2012 with a new title, new cover and some story changes. (according to the blurb on Amazon and some checking on Goodreads)
I’m not a huge sitcom fan, and in many ways that’s what His Redneck Girl reminded me of.. a sexy sitcom. If that’s your guilty pleasure then this story is for you. I didn’t hate or love it, it was a good book that I enjoyed while reading it.
*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
