But you know how it is, what you want most and can’t have, you fall the hardest for. I tried my damnedest to fight against it, but I fell. With Millie by my side, I felt invincible until all the secrets I had tried to keep buried were unleashed upon us. Bringing to light a past that refused to go away. A past that was so hell bent on destroying my future.
When it came down to it, protecting Millie would always come first, and if walking away from her was going to protect her from my past, then my choice was easy. I just wish it didn't hurt so damn much.

Release Date: September 12, 2017
Genre: Small Town. Southern Romance.
I just read this book in one sitting- it's a light and easy read with a LOT of spice. Although a bit unexpected, I did enjoy reading it. Farm Boy is the first book in the Homegrown Duet. It is a southern romance, set on a farm (I love these kinds of books), and introduces readers to Millie and Drew. At first, these two despise one another - enemies to lovers and all that-. Millie can't stand him because she finds him cocky and arrogant and Drew doesn't care for her because he's attracted to her but can't have her (family disapproval? maybe. Secrets hidden in the past? Hmm..). So one could gather from this that there is a bit of angst when it comes to them building a relationship. However, despite their initial distaste for one another, fireworks somehow explode and lead them to the bedroom (or the back of a truck, idk). Now, for me, the way they came together was really fast especially considering how much they didn't like one another. I felt like something was skipped in between and almost got whiplash when I read that they were falling in bed together. Perhaps a little more buildup would have made the story feel more real to me as a reader? Maybe. There was just something missing- something I really wished were added to the story to make it more realistic.
Other than this, I enjoyed the story and found the emotion behind it to be great. Drew has an emotional history and it hit me as a reader. Millie also has some sadness in her life which continues to effect her as a character especially considering another tragedy is on the brink of taking over her life once again. --I won't say what, you'll have to read it.-- Their love story is interesting, sexy, and fun, and the cliffhanger at the end left me craving more. However, I did feel there was something missing in the story, something I hope to see in the next book in the duet (more emotion, a little more fight and a little less quickness etc.).
If you enjoy a small town, southern romance, with a hot farmer and a lot of sexy times, this is your book. If you need more than just sex in a book and despise cliffhanger than you may want to skip this one.
