Book Review: In the Weeds by B.K. Borison

About the Book:

Title: In the Weeds

Author: B.K. Borison

Series: Lovelight Farms #2

Page Length: 410

Publication Date: April 18, 2022

Publisher: Berkley

Synopsis: 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.

My Review:

This is the second book in the Lovelight series, and I was really excited to read it because it’s about Beckett and Evie, whose connection was hinted at in the first book, and you could feel the chemistry between them. Before the start of Lovelight Farms, the pair had a one-night stand, fully expecting to never see each other again, but it’s pretty clear there are some unresolved emotions between them. I was so curious about how these seemingly opposite people got together and what happened to them.

Evie is a social media influencer who badly needs a break from the rigor of her job. She thinks about the last place she felt happy and peaceful and decides to return there, which is how she ends up at Lovelight Farms and with Beckett. I so related to her burnout. That’s exactly how I felt when I left my teaching career. Evie has such a great journey as she takes a good look at her life and figures out what is missing. She begins to think more about her happiness and what she really wants instead of being defined completely by her job.

And Beckett… sigh. He’s a dreamboat. A grumpy, tattooed kitten dad, Beckett is such a swoon-worthy cinnamon roll. He’s so gentle and quiet and kind. And the way he feels about Evie is super swoon-worthy. Every time he asked her if she found her happy today, my heart melted a little bit more. I just loved watching Beckett and Evie fall in love. They have amazing banter and chemistry, and there’s so much humor, thoughtfulness, and intimacy in their relationship. It’s really special.

I adore that we also get to see Stella and Luke, the main characters from the first book in the series. I adored their friends-to-lovers romance as much as I enjoyed this one, and it’s always great to see how characters from previous books in a series are faring. Beckett and Evie’s families and the people of Inglewild are also fantastic secondary characters, and I enjoyed the messages about family and friendship. And I’d love to be a member of the community phone tree, which is used more for socializing and gossiping than for emergencies. lol

Special thanks to Berkley Books for providing me with a copy of the book. All thoughts are my own.
