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.


Where to begin? That is the question I’ve been asking myself for several weeks since I finished reading this phenomenally captivating debut novel from the extraordinarily talented LK Farlow! I absolutely adored every single aspect of this sweet southern romance that gave me all the warm and fuzzies while reading it! I cannot believe that this is the author’s debut novel due to the fact that it is so well written and her character development is on point! You’ve got those characters that you instantly fall in love with and then of course you’ve got those characters that you instantly hate. No two characters are alike and even those with minor roles shine through during their scenes.

Myla Rose McGraw is just twenty years old and yet she has already been through so much pain and loss, yet she is one of the strongest characters I’ve met in sometime. Even when she finds out that she is pregnant and her jerk of an ex-boyfriend refuses to have anything to do with the child, she is strong and learns that not everyone is as they seem. Enter in Cash Carson, a man in his mid-to-late 20’s who has just discovered that his happy relationship of years was all a sham. How can two broken souls come together when they’ve both been hurt time after time? To find out what happens pick up your copy of Coming Up Roses, the first standalone book in LK Farlow’s debut series – Southern Roots!
