Evelyn St. James isn’t the kind of woman you forget.Beckett Porter certainly hasn’t. One incredible weekend in Maine, and he’s officially a man distracted. He’s not unfamiliar with hot and heavy flings. He knows how it goes. But Evie wove some sort of magic over him during their tumble in the sheets. He can’t stop thinking about her laugh. Her hand pressed flat against his chest. Her smiling mouth at his neck.Also, her eyes. And her legs.So when she suddenly appears on his farm as part of a social media contest, he is … confused. He had no idea that the sweet and sexy woman he met at a bar is actually a global phenomenon: social media influencer Evelyn St. James. When she disappears again, Beckett resolves to finally forget her and move on.But Evelyn St. James has a problem.Feeling disconnected from her work and increasingly unhappy, she’s trying to find her way back to something real. She returns to the last place she was happy, Lovelight Farms and the tiny town of Inglewild.It has absolutely nothing to do with the hot farmer she spent two incredible nights with.Nothing at all.In The Weeds is a sweet and steamy second-chance romance about finding your happiness. It features a grumpy farmer, a no-nonsense social media influencer, a small town of busybodies, and four very cute kittens. This is the second book in a series of interconnected standalones following the three Lovelight owners.
When I read books like Into the Weeds, I am reminded why the genre has such a grip on my heart.Romance books have to have a happily ever after; they have to end with the main character finding love. Every book tackles this in a different way. There is the meet cute, exposition, first time, dark night, and HEA.Beckett and Evie have their meet cute, first time, and dark night all before the book even starts. We get to see some of that in BK’s first book, Lovelight Farms (a book I waited months to read because I knew I would love it too much, and I did).So when we get to dive in to Evie and Beckett’s love story, there is a real friendship that builds on top of the insane chemistry that has already been established.Borison writes intimacy so well, writes the characters feeling known in a way that we all crave. “A family of cats jostling for our attention as we trip into the kitchen, tea in the kettle on the stovetop and two mugs sitting side by side next to it…” “…bacon in a takeout container and ear plugs at the bottom of a handbag.”I love the simple in-between moments in life, that is where great romance lives. It’s why whether it’s closed door, some spice, or RH, if you read romance, you want that moment — where the angst, misunderstanding, and hurt pay off, and each person feels seen, known, and loved.And I don’t think wanting that for yourself is unrealistic. B.K. Borison is officially an auto-buy author. I want to exist in all of the small, intimate, real-life moments she gives her characters.
I really love the way this author writes. It’s poetic but not in a formal contemporary way. Idk if that makes sense.These characters were dynamic and I can resist a H who is completely ~gone~ for his h. Looking forward to the next in this small town/ farm life series
I’ve been looking forward to this book ever since I finished Lovelight Farms last winter, and it was so worth the wait.Evie is a social media maven with a passion for helping small hometown businesses, but she’s burnt out from the constant hustle and is desperate for a quiet, safe place to land. She goes back to Lovelight Farms, a small business she previously helped, because that’s the last time she really felt happy. And she could really use some happy again.Beckett is an introverted farmer who loves his cats and his family. He keeps to himself, works hard, and has a few fiercely loyal friends.Beckett and Evie have a short but passionate history, so when he sees her back in town with nowhere to stay, he invites her into his home.They avoid and wonder. Clash and learn. Yearn. Slowly, slowly.The pacing of their relationship was perfect. They don’t rush, they enjoy the little things, they make each other coffee. With each dinner and nighttime chat, each morning note on the counter, they create this sweet thing between them. The descriptions are vivid, you can feel the longing, the tension, the comfort. Dual perspective, so we know what they are each thinking. They are so kind to each other, in their inner thoughts and in their outward actions.The scene when Beckett warms Evie in front of the fire up after she falls in the lake. That scene was everything.The stars. The oak trees. The tattoos. The earplugs.Evie and Beckett forever.
“I didn’t realize falling in love could be so simple. Bacon in a takeout container and earplugs in the bottom of a handbag.”Hello my name is Natalie and I have an obsession with B.K. Borison.Her writing is the type that sucks you in from the first pages, gets lost within the chapters, and makes you not realize you have spent the whole day reading. I’m amazed how good her writing got with her sophomore book. There’s a certain flow to the story that makes the read feel a part of it rather than an outsider reading. You feel Beckett and Evie surrounding your mind and heart intertwining their emotions with your own.Beckett had my heart. Behind the grump attitude and the impenetrable wall he built around his heart, lies the softest and warm man I have ever read. With every animal he inadvertently adopts, I fell more in love with him. There’s so many layers to his character and the author took her time developing each one.I went to live in this book, on this farm, in this town, a part of the phone tree. The author created a world that is charming and quaint with characters that dig their roots deep into your soul. It’s the book that you want to savor every morsel, but end up devouring because you never want to leave the pages. Evie and Beckett are perfection The kind of book couple that you ship and aspire to be with the once in a lifetime kind of love. This book was a dream, one that I was to live in forever.
This book is a lot of sex and no substance.An R rated Hallmark movie.Painfully predictable.Cliche characters.Overdone metaphors.Eyerolling.It STARTS with a detailed 1 night stand. UGH! Its like being told what your gift is right before you open it. Being told “its a surprise party” as you go into the restaurant.The intimacy wasn’t even amazing. Just there.Not even half way in and I was done.
“It’s okay if it takes you some time to find it again. And it’s okay if you find it just to lose a bit of it here and there. That’s the beauty of it, yeah? It comes and goes. Not every day is a happy one and it shouldn’t be. It’s in the trying, I think.”In the Weeds is like being curled up with a warm cup of coffee in your hands, cozy socks on your feet, and the person you love by your side.It’s heartwarming… it’s comforting…It’s just absolutely perfect.I’m 100% certain that B.K Borision is a closet magician because she has created pure magic with her words once again.The details. The beauty. The warmth. The looks. The talks. The notes. *ugh my heart * The power of community. The strength of family. The happiness in the simple things. This book completely captivated me!!!In the Weeds isn’t just a simple love story, it’s a story of self-love & self-care. A story of learning to take a step back, listen to your heart, and find what makes you happy. B.K Borisons words are insightful & honest as she takes you through Evie & Beckett’s story.“Trying to be happy is like—it’s like telling a flower to bloom.” He crosses his ankles and drags his palm against his stubble. “You can’t make yourself be happy. But you can be open to it. You can trust yourself enough to feel it when you stumble on it.”Beckett & Evie are everything. She is the sunshine to his grumpy. Both selfless and stubborn in their way our OTP learn that sometimes in love you need to be selfish.I have so much that I want to say about my love for these two characters but, more importantly, I want to say thank you to B.K Borison. This book was absolutely beautiful. Your words will forever live in my heart. I connected with both characters on many levels but especially Beckett. As someone who has struggled with sound sensitivity my entire life & social anxiety because of it, your words made me feel understood. You captured the feelings that so regularly are swirling around inside me perfectly and embraced them with words of understanding, love, & care. Thank you for pouring your heart into your words. You are an amazing writer. If finding your books was one of the only things I ever got out of Bookstagram, that would be okay with me!You were my favorite read of the winter & you are my favorite read of the spring!
