An Uphill Battle (Southern Roots #2) by LK Farlow

36269897Azalea Barnes has hated Drake Collins since the day he broke her teenaged heart.
Fast forward almost seven years later and her libido still hasn’t gotten the memo.
Now they’re frenemies… with benefits.
Which suits Azalea just fine. She gets what her body craves while keeping her heart safe. Kind of. Mostly. Drake has loved Azalea since the day they met. He knows that she’s his forever. Too bad she only sees him as a good time. He wants more. Needs more.
If only he could convince her that it’s real this time. He’s more determined than ever to prove to Azalea that chemistry like theirs doesn’t exist only in the bedroom.The odds may be against Drake, but he’s prepared for an uphill battle.

ARC provided for honest review.

 So much of this drama between us was nothing more than miscommunications, and totally avoidable.

That quote literally wraps up this whole book. Miscommunication, miscommunication, oh and more miscommunication.

I really wanted to love this book because Coming Up Roses was so good! Sadly I struggled with this book a bit.

It really was Azalea that was making it so hard to read. I couldn’t bring myself to like her or root for her to have a happy ending. She was so stuck in the past that she refused to see what Drake was spelling out in front of her.

Drake earned my respect repeatedly in this book, and the secondary characters were good too.

Overall, it didn’t do it for me. I just couldn’t get past the unnecessary drama miscommunication.
