The Lovelight Farms series by B.K. Borison took the book world by storm and the series is now being republished by Berkley. We’ve already talked about Book 1 so now we’re moving on to In The Weeds.

While you don’t have to read Lovelight Farms before In The Weeds, I really think you should as it gives you a bit of context into this romance. Additionally, these books are all meant to be “seasonal” reads with Lovelight Farms being winter while In The Weeds is spring.

We won’t get into the next two books until later because In The Weeds is the next re-release from Berkley and this one is a fan favorite. I think it’s in part because of the beautiful covers but also because B.K. Borison is a queen.

Whether you’re new to the series or want to go back and refresh your memory, we have 5 reasons why you should pick up In The Weeds.

Need a reason to pick up In The Weeds by B.K. Borison? We’ve got you.

Firstly, I’d like to thank Berkley for sending me a digital ARC of this one. Even though I’ve already read this series, I wanted to feature it on Culturess. I really love B.K. Borison and her writing so there’s no way I was passing up an opportunity to feature this series and hopefully, influence others to read it.

1. In The Weeds gives us the romance we’ve all been waiting for.

Lovelight Farms gives us such a sweet and tender romance between Stella and Luka. As much as I loved those two, I was so interested in Beckett and the situation he was in. We knew that he and Evelyn had some history so seeing these two finally come together was joyous. They were so soft and sweet towards each other that you’ll be melting into a puddle by the end.

2. Beckett isn’t your typical romance hero.

I feel like there is something to be said about a man like Beckett Porter. While romance books have featured stereotypical alpha men, Beckett is so much more. He might seem like he has a gruff exterior but he’s so soft and sweet. Whether it’s taking care of more animals, tending to Lovelight Farms, or allowing his sister to tattoo him, he’s the embodiment of a great book boyfriend.

3.  Evelyn is an incredibly relatable character to a lot of us.

As great as Beckett is, I feel like no one talks about Evelyn which is sad. She’s such a great character because she’s honestly dealing with so much burnout. Given the pandemic and all the effects of it, I feel she’s so relatable. She’s trying to figure out what makes her happy in life, in love and she feels like she’s floundering.

Regardless, Evelyn decides to put herself first and make the decision that will make her the happiest. That’s a reminder I think we all need sometimes.

4.  The tropes featured In The Weeds are just utterly fantastic.

Every single time, B.K. Borison knocks it out of the park with tropes. This time, things are slightly different than the ones she explored in Book 1. In The Weeds features a one-night-stand, second-chance, and opposites attract romance. These two seem like an unlikely pair yet they complement each other so well.

5. Spring perfectly encapsulates everything about In The Weeds.

Maybe this last one isn’t a reason to read yet somehow, I couldn’t not feature it. In The Weeds is the ideal spring read. Not only does it focus on a new relationship but it’s also a massive change for both Evelyn and Beckett. These two dealt with so much yet coming together, they realize life can be so much sweeter with a partner.

I don’t know if it’s romantic in me, but I just adored these two. This series by B.K. Borison will make you smile, cry and laugh all on the same page. There is just something undeniably comforting in these stories so I can’t wait to talk about the next release in August.

In The Weeds by B.K. Borison is out not wherever your favorite books are sold.
