Coming Up Roses (Southern Roots, #1)

Coming Up Roses

(Southern Roots #1)

by L.K. Farlow

Myla Rose McGraw may be twenty, single, and pregnant, but she’s no damsel in distress. She doesn’t need a man. After all, her Grams taught her a thing or two about making lemonade out of life’s lemons.

Then she meets Cash Carson.

Reeling from a bad breakup, Cash has sworn off love. It led to nothing but pain and misery, and he’s determined to move forward alone.
Until a redheaded Southern beauty crashes into him. With her shopping cart. At the local Piggly Wiggly.

If love wasn’t for him, why did his heart beat a little faster every time Myla Rose sent that sweet smile his way?

He was no knight, and she didn’t need saving.

But damn if he didn’t want to try anyway.

COMING UP ROSES is a sweet, Southern fairy tale—with a twist.


3.5 Slow burn Stars on Goodreads

Coming up Roses by L.K. Farlow is my first book from this author. I came across it on Kindle Unlimited and liked the description so said I’d give it a go. It started off slow for me.

Myla Rose McGraw is a strong and sassy woman going it on her own after she gets pregnant and her no good boyfriend wants nothing to do with any of it.

Cash Carson has moved to this town after a very traumatic breakup. After he finds out his long term girlfriend has been cheating in him for half of their relationship, he decided to make a big move to be nearer his family.

This was a sweet read but it was also a very slow burner. Although loads happens within the first few chapters after that it slows right down. I wanted it to be so great but it dragged and left me wanting more. It had some interesting secondary characters that I know go on to get their own books so that might have me reaching for the second in the series.
