Magnolia Ellington is all too aware that dangerous things can come in shiny packages. Her husband made sure to teach her that.
Desperate to escape his wrath—and his fists—she flees in the dark of night. Seeking safety and shelter with the only family she has left, Magnolia finds herself in the sleepy, Southern town of Dogwood—and in the arms of Simon McAllister.
Simon has always been more of a thinker than a doer. That changes the minute he meets shy and mysterious Magnolia. She has him rushing into action, ready and willing to do whatever it takes to earn her trust.
Slowly, with his steadfast determination and kind heart, Simon brings Magnolia out of her shell. But just as things start heating up between the two of them, the darkness of Magnolia’s past resurfaces, threatening to rip apart everything they’ve worked so hard for.
With their future hanging in the balance, Simon fears he’s losing Magnolia. Now, he must convince her that, together, they can weather the storm.
"Welp, Weather the Storm is definitely my favorite of all 3 Southern Roots books. I loved every second of this book. Very well written, characters wee amazing, and the words flowed perfectly.
Simon was the quiet one in all the other books. This one, I fell in love with him. He took care of Magnolia right from the start. He never pushed her and loved her through all her broken pieces.
Magnolia. I wish I could just hug and love on her. She deserved the very best and I am so glad that Simon was it. They just clicked together.
I hope we get to read about Seraphine. I bet she is just a ball full of sass!"
"This book was cute.
I mean, not all the situations that happened were cute, but the relationship between the characters, the whole southern situation. It was a sweet-cute.
I liked this book. Coming Up Roses is my favorite of the series, and this is the runner up. I loved Simon and Magnolia. I feel like these two deserved each other. Simon deserved a good woman to love him, and Magnolia deserved a good man that would treat her right and not be a complete waste of space.
The only problem I had with this book and a few times throughout the series, was that the author was trying a little too hard to make the reader believe the character was southern. Maybe it was just me? I don't know. Overall, though, I did like the book, and like the series. I'm anticipating Serephine's book!"

I jolt awake, momentarily disoriented by the rhythmic beeping coming from my right. Beep. Beep. Beep. Again and again, the sound causes my temples to throb. Even though my eyes are still pinched closed, I know this is not my room, and I am not in my bed. Without warning, the events that led me here flash through my mind: hitting Simon’s truck and the subsequent ambulance ride. I remember the CT scan, and being given pain medication. I must have fallen asleep shortly after that.
I inhale deeply, trying to get my bearings, and cringe at the smell of antiseptic hanging in the air. God, I hate hospitals.
Slowly, I try to blink my eyes open, only to immediately close them again. Whimpering at the brightness of the room, I sink farther into the small, firm mattress before steeling my resolve to try again.
I peel one lid open and hold it, adjusting, before peeling the other open as well. “So bright,” I whine to myself, squinting up at the light above me. My head feels like an entire drumline has taken it as their practice space; the thrumming and pounding is incessant.
With all the strength I can muster, I roll my head to face the far wall of the small hospital room, only to startle at the sight of the most gorgeous man I’ve ever laid eyes on sleeping in the chair in the corner, his light-brown hair messy, his chiseled jaw covered in stubble. “S-Simon?” I whisper, more to myself than to him.
All the same, he jolts like someone took a live wire to his skin. “You’re up?” He lunges from the chair toward me, gently taking my hand in his, scanning my body before bringing his deep-blue eyes to mine. “Are you—fuck, you have no idea how happy I am to see those baby-blue eyes right now. Let me call for your doctor.”
He starts to withdraw his hand from mine, and I let out the most pathetic whimper, halting him. “Don’t go,” I beg.
“Not going anywhere. Just gonna hit the call button,” he assures me, leaving me feeling foolish, even though that wasn’t his intention.
