Author: Anie Michaels
Series: With a Kiss #4
Release Date: March 13, 2018
Rose Finch lived by checklists:
– Be an independent woman: check.
– Owner of successful company: check.
– Become a fierce and respected lady boss: check.
– Live within a strict routine as not to encounter anything unexpected: double check.
Aiden Daniels was not on her list.
Well, that was, until she found herself in a situation she’d never imagined involving the man who was unimaginably gorgeous. Not to mention strong, capable, sexy, and everything she never dared to hope for.
For the very first time, Rose wasn’t thinking about her career, or her ten-year plan, or her stock portfolio. Nope, she was thinking about a man. The worst part? He was thinking about her too.
Will Rose be able to step out of her box and let Aiden in? Or will love and happiness ultimately end up on the list of things she’d never have?
Anie Michaels returns to the With a Kiss series with Rose and Aiden’s story in Coming Up Roses. This novel has all of the charm, humor, and romance I’ve come to love from this series and yet still feels fresh and entirely unique. Rose and Aiden make their mark in a very big way, standing on their own and leaving me no choice but to take the leap with them. This duo was delightfully unexpected, and I wanted to savor their story and devour it simultaneously. Coming Up Roses was the perfect mix of electrifying chemistry and slow burn, keeping me on my toes and yet totally satisfied. From the moment they met to the very last page, I was under Rose and Aiden’s spell. Anie Michaels also delivers more of Riley, Camden, Hadley, and Justin and together, this group is absolutely everything. I laughed and felt and fell in love all over again.
“I mean, obviously, you’re a catch, but Rose isn’t fishing right now. She’s, like, not even on the boat or close to the dock. Trust me. Anglerwoman she is not.”
One of the things I enjoy most about this series is that each character is so wildly different and wonderfully quirky. Aiden and Rose are certainly no exception, and I relished getting to know them over the course of this story. Aiden was patient, kind, protective, and seriously swoon-worthy. He made my heart flutter as I fell hard for the way he loved Rose: fiercely and without reservation. Rose, on the other hand, stole my heart with how real and relatable she was. Her insecurities and fears ran deep, and they provided a captivating contrast to the otherwise confident and in control businesswoman. As much as I loved both of these characters on their own, it was the enchanting combination of Aiden and Rose that really packed a punch. I adored watching them grow together, challenging one another to step outside of what was familiar and safe and take a chance on forever.
“Nothing has ever changed my world like you have, Rose. I never want to go back to a life without you in it.”
This book was utterly sweet, perfect in its understated and genuine emotion. Aiden and Rose’s relationship evolved so organically and comfortably that I didn’t even realize they’d completely stolen my heart until it was too late to turn back. I was smitten by this couple’s inimitable connection, wanting nothing more than to stay beside them on their journey long after the final page had been turned. Anie Michaels’ writing absolutely sparkles as she effortlessly recaptures the magic of the With a Kiss series with this newest addition. The author drops readers right back into her vibrant, hilarious, and deliciously dreamy world of unforgettable characters and somehow makes it bigger, brighter, and even more beautiful. Coming Up Roses is contemporary romance at its best – smart, witty, sexy, and full of heart. For author Anie Michaels, this novel is definitely Coming Up Roses!
