Magnolia Ellington is all too aware that dangerous things can come in shiny packages. Her husband made sure to teach her that.

Desperate to escape his wrath—and his fists—she flees in the dark of night. Seeking safety and shelter with the only family she has left, Magnolia finds herself in the sleepy, Southern town of Dogwood—and in the arms of Simon McAllister.

Simon has always been more of a thinker than a doer. That changes the minute he meets shy and mysterious Magnolia. She has him rushing into action, ready and willing to do whatever it takes to earn her trust.

Slowly, with his steadfast determination and kind heart, Simon brings Magnolia out of her shell. But just as things start heating up between the two of them, the darkness of Magnolia’s past resurfaces, threatening to rip apart everything they’ve worked so hard for.

With their future hanging in the balance, Simon fears he’s losing Magnolia. Now, he must convince her that, together, they can weather the storm.
 

 

 
I jolt awake, momentarily disoriented by the rhythmic beeping coming from my right. Beep. Beep. Beep. Again and again, the sound causes my temples to throb. Even though my eyes are still pinched closed, I know this is not my room, and I am not in my bed. Without warning, the events that led me here flash through my mind: hitting Simon’s truck and the subsequent ambulance ride. I remember the CT scan, and being given pain medication. I must have fallen asleep shortly after that. 

I inhale deeply, trying to get my bearings, and cringe at the smell of antiseptic hanging in the air. God, I hate hospitals. 

Slowly, I try to blink my eyes open, only to immediately close them again. Whimpering at the brightness of the room, I sink farther into the small, firm mattress before steeling my resolve to try again. 

I peel one lid open and hold it, adjusting, before peeling the other open as well. “So bright,” I whine to myself, squinting up at the light above me. My head feels like an entire drumline has taken it as their practice space; the thrumming and pounding is incessant. 

With all the strength I can muster, I roll my head to face the far wall of the small hospital room, only to startle at the sight of the most gorgeous man I’ve ever laid eyes on sleeping in the chair in the corner, his light-brown hair messy, his chiseled jaw covered in stubble. “S-Simon?” I whisper, more to myself than to him. 

All the same, he jolts like someone took a live wire to his skin. “You’re up?” He lunges from the chair toward me, gently taking my hand in his, scanning my body before bringing his deep-blue eyes to mine. “Are you—fuck, you have no idea how happy I am to see those baby-blue eyes right now. Let me call for your doctor.” 

He starts to withdraw his hand from mine, and I let out the most pathetic whimper, halting him. “Don’t go,” I beg. 

“Not going anywhere. Just gonna hit the call button,” he assures me, leaving me feeling foolish, even though that wasn’t his intention.

BLOG TOUR ~ Coming Up Roses (Southern Roots #1) by LK Farlow


Title: Coming Up Roses
Series: Southern Roots #1
Author: LK Farlow
Genre: NA Romance 
Release Date: August 30, 2017 

 
 

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.


 
 
 

 

 


 
 


 

I liked the blurb for Coming Up Roses and wanted to know how things could work out for Cash and Myla.

The fact that our main man fell for a pregnant gal didn’t bother me in the slightest, let’s face it, anyone can be a sperm donor (as we discover when we meet Myla’s ex!) but sometimes it takes a better person to be a dad. Both our leads have had crappy past experience with partners so it makes sense that they are both a little wary about getting into another relationship.

I loved Cash’s determination to win M over once he decided what he wanted while a couple of other times I wanted to brain him for being so bloody minded and blinkered!
Myla was pretty determined, knew her own mind and was determined to do what was best for her and her baby. She had a great support system in her friends and I really liked her memories of her grandmother and the sass that she had so obviously picked up from the old lady.

Coming Up Roses was a sweet, southern romance with heat, an interesting and engaging story thread and it was, in my opinion, a really good debut novel from L.K. Farlow.
I’m looking forward to more in the series with the couples you could see would likely get together while reading Myla & Cash’s story!

3.95 stars – I have to admit that there was one little thing that did start to get to me the further on I read and that was Cash’s nigh on constant use of ‘darlin’ when he was talking to his lady!

She grasps my hand, and like an instant replay from dinner, her body slides down mine. The contact is somehow more intimate than it was earlier, making her cheeks turn a pretty shade of pink, only noticeable due to the moonlight peeking between the branches of the oak tree in her yard.

 

“Okay, Cash.” Her voice is nothing more than a rasp.

 

We make it to the porch, and the inner battle begins. Is she expecting a kiss, or will she slap me for trying, what with how our last kiss ended? I war with myself a little longer before settling on a hug. A nice, safe hug.

 

“Well, goodnight then,” she whispers, looking down as I start to pull away.

 

Is that disappointment I hear in her voice? Well, hell. I can’t have that.

 

Keeping my right arm around her waist, I bring my left hand to her cheek, placing my thumb just below her jaw. Using that position, I pull her closer to me.

 

“It was a good night indeed, Myla Rose,” I murmur just before I press my lips to hers.

 

Her lips are soft, so damn soft, even more so than I remember. I nip at her bottom lip, causing her lips to part. I use that small opening to deepen the kiss, and Myla Rose digs her nails into the base of my neck.

 

Slipping my hand from her waist and down over the curve of her hip, I hike her dress up and settle it on the smooth bare skin just under her ass, pulling her closer—closer—closer. Trailing my fingertips across her cheek and through her hair, I tug on it just a little, just like I’d imagined doing at the start of our night.

 

Damn, she likes that. It’s like I flipped a switch. She’s no longer kissing me—she’s devouring me.

 

I hoist her up, and she wraps her legs around my waist. The front door is the only thing keeping us upright. I press my hips into hers, showing her just how much I want her before pulling her hair again. She throws her head back, hitting it on the door with a loud thump.

 

That breaks the spell. She lowers her legs and untangles herself from me, and I step back, unsure of what comes next. Is she going to ask me in or send me on my way?

 

“Do . . . do you want to come in?” She looks up at me expectantly.

 

“Lead the way, darlin’,” I rasp out—because really, is there any other response?
