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?

Coming Up Roses: #MeetCute Books (With A Kiss Book 4) by Anie Michaels 5 Stars This is my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it, I loved the flow and smooth easy style to the writing. I actually laughed out loud at Aiden and Roses first meeting and I loved Roses lists...Im a list maker and I totally appreciated this. I do want to go back and read the beginning of this series, I never felt lost but really believe I would have enjoyed it even more had I read the others. These two were so awesome, I loved her tidy organized life mixing with his desire to get her to take a chance on his spontaneous not so tidy life. They had their obstacles but how they got through them made this story simply amazing. I can not wait to read more from this author and I see so many openings for more to come in the future for this series. I can't wait! Loved it and it's a must read!
Coming Up Roses by Anie Michaels is the fourth book in her With a Kiss series, and it was a fantastic weekend read! Following the story of Rose and Aiden, and what a ride this story was. Rose is a woman who loves to make lists and have order in her life. This way of thinking has gotten her far in her business as an event planner but has made her a bit of a workaholic. Until she meets Aiden, who was the opposite of everything that she thought she had wanted. Aiden is a blue collared working man with dirt under his nails, but his work rough hands feel right when he is holding her. The electricity between these two jumped off the page for me, making this such a fun read. The back and forth play, spontaneous sexy time, and over the top excitement made this story so entertaining to fall into. Both Aiden and Rose's characters were incredibly well written, the storyline was easy to read, and pulled me in from the very beginning. Michaels is a new to me author, but she is definitely on my radar now. A notice, while this story is a part of the With A Kiss series, each story is made to be able to be read on its own. While each character can be find in the other books of this series, their own stories are featured solely in their own book. Having finished this book, I bought all of the other books in this series, can't wait to dive in to some great romance reading.
Coming Up Roses by Anie Michaels can be read as a standalone romance. Rose and Aiden were both introduced in Kiss Cam, Riled Up and Had Enough. These characters are fantastic, how their lives are intertwined and the way their relationships continue to grow. Rose is a strong, independent woman. She is totally in control all of the time and plans everything. Her list making skills are superior. After being swept off her feet, literally by Aiden Daniels, she is at a lose. He is like no other man she has ever met. He has awaken something in her. But Rose does not date or do relationships. It quickly becomes Aiden's mission to change her mind, give him a chance and put him at the top of her to do list. I devoured this book in one day! I loved these characters. Aiden will make you fall in love. Rose's struggles will melt your heart. Their chemistry is like a wild fire. This book is hot! Anie Michaels is at the top of my favorite authors list and this book solidifies her rank.
Coming Up Roses by Anie Michaels is a contemporary romance novel. This book can be read as a stand alone but you will see characters from previous books by this author. This is not my first book by this author but in my opinion her books keep getting better and better with each one that I read. I enjoy her writing style that keeps me engaged and is easy flowing. I enjoy how she can pull me into the story right from the beginning. Her characters are both connectable and true to life. I can see myself being friends with them. This is the story of Rose and Aiden. Rose is a woman who is successful with her own business and knows where she is going. She lives by a predictable schedule that she doesn't sway from. She has lists for everything including her morning routine until she meets Aiden. He of course is not on her list. They meet when she has to step in for one of her employees. She can't seem to get him out of her head but he is having the same problem. Will she be able to let Aiden in? Will he break her down? Will he be the distraction that she wasn't expecting? I enjoyed both of these characters. Rose is a strong woman who knows what she wants and where she is going. She did make me laugh a few times and appears to be a little naive. Aiden is a sexy, gorgeous and from the moment that he meets Rose can't get her out of his mind. Together they just fit together, they have great chemistry. Neither one was looking for the other but sometimes that happens, it comes to find you. The secondary characters are just as connectable and strong. They are supportive and just want what is best for these characters. I highly suggest this book. Find out what happens when love knocks these two over when they are not looking and if fate will allow a happy ever after.
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. 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. 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!
