Sassy & Southern

Just Romance Me Jingle Bell Blog Hop – Best Things about the South


Thank you for joining the Just Romance Me Blog Hop! I’m excited you are here to help celebrate the Dec. 6th release of my debut CAN’T FAKE THIS from Loose, id

CAN’T FAKE THIS is about a divorcee ready to reenter the dating world. Anna Ryan is determined to be the best “product on the market,” which requires a lot more experience so she propositions sexy police officer Chase Harris to teach her how to make hot, passionate love as opposed to just having sex. He takes it a step further, instructing each lesson based on The Twelve Days of Christmas.

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…temptation in a hot package. For more, check out the book trailer and excerpt!

The story definitely has my “Sexy, Sassy & Southern” trademark. Speaking of the South, I’ve put together my list of Top 10 Favorite Things about the South.

1. Sweet tea and sweeter accents          

2. Macaroni & cheese is a vegetable and pecan pie is a staple

3. Y’all is a proper noun                                    

4. Smocked dresses and hairbows as big as a little girl’s head

5. Front porches are wide and words are long                                                        

6. Sultry summer nights that start in April                                                                                        

7. Mardi Gras. Enough said.

8. SEC football. (Roll Tide!)                                                                                                                                                                              9. Pageants are serious business   

10. Everything is darlin’ and someone’s heart is always blessed

    I’m from KY so your list applies to me pretty well too! Add Kentucky Bourbon and horses (which I am allergic to, lol) and you are all set.

    Firstly I have to say that I love your list, especially number 4 on the list. I can’t express how many giant bows I had when I was little!

    What I do love about where I live is that we usually get a white Christmas.


  11. Na S. Says:

    Hi Casey! Congratulations on the recent release of your book =)

  12. Eva P. Says:

    You know I never knew how good tea was until I had some sweet tea when I visited a friend in Atlanta. That is some of the best tea ever! I wish I could have it imported to me 😉

  13. Casey Crow Says:

    Pam – Thanks for stopping by! At a gas station today, my daughter say a life-size cut out of Nick Saban and actually asked who he was. I was devastated. LOL

    Rae – No fair about the white Christmas. Never in my life has that happened. I can count on one hand how many times it has snowed in my life! Probably a good thing since I’m the world’s worst snow skier! Merry Christmas!

    Na – Thanks so much. Happy holidays!

    Eva – What a great comment. Thanks for stopping by!

    Here in Texas your list is King, or is it Queen? I’m always blessing someone’s little heart. I love Anna Ryan’s determination. Thanks!

  15. Casey Crow Says:

    Lisa – Thanks for popping in. Isn’t it funny how you can bless someone’s heart in the most sympathetic, meaningful way or cut them at the knees doing it in the most sarcastic way? LOL

    I think National Best Seller, Susanna Carr summed it up best in her review of Can’t Fake This when she said, “One of my favorite parts of this story is Anna, the heroine. You see her as a friend, a mother and as a woman getting back into the dating game. She’s sassy, vulnerable, fun and ready to get more out of life. She reminds me a lot of the women I know and admire.”

    I think we all have a little bit of Anna in us, and I hope ever woman realizes she can still be beautiful, sexy & strong no matter what age!
