Author: ML Rodriguez

ML is currently living overseas with her husband and two children. Her obsessions include music, her mother’s cooking (especially her breakfast tacos), wild berry skittles, coffee, chocolate, the color purple, and romance novels—the happily ever after kind, of course.

After years of comments from her husband to write and a chance meeting by the city pool where she met one of her favorite authors, ML decided to take a leap of faith into the amazing and exciting world of writing. As a result, La Flor Series came into existence, and the journey continues as her characters make their voices heard.

To all the wonderful people who will read her work, THANK YOU. Thank you for taking a chance on her.

"Dreams, love, lies, betrayal... Life isn't always perfect..."

At eighteen, I met him; a handsome young man with amber colored eyes, and with one look, he claimed my heart.

The world was at our feet and we had our futures planned. But even the best-laid plans go awry when you’re blessed with a most beautiful surprise.

In a matter of minutes, our lives changed.

The years that followed were filled with change and adventure. Our life wasn’t perfect, but we were happy, or so I thought.

As I was living my dream, our life was slowly unraveling. Then, my worst nightmare became a reality.

Now, I’m empty and lifeless.

I live in my own personal hell, drowning in my guilt and trying to forget the memories.

Until the day, a knock on my door changes everything, and I am forced to face my past.

*WARNING: This is a story about two individuals who are FLAWED; about friendship, family, mistakes, forgiveness, and love. Their love is not a fairy-tale and their life doesn't go as planned.

**A full-length standalone romance novel with a "happily ever after" ending.

I met Jake when I was seventeen and at eighteen, I became his wife. The years that followed were enchanted, like a fairy tale romance.

Then, in the blink of an eye, my perfect world unraveled—I lost a part of myself and my dreams shattered around me.

At twenty-five, I was left a widow, pregnant, and mother of two.

Fast forward almost five years—I exist, but I don’t “live.” I had to learn to live without him, with only our memories and my tears. I raised our children, and I lived his dream, without a thought to myself.

That is, until the day at the stoplight, when a pair of violet eyes stared back at me. In that moment, the numbness started to disappear, and lightning hit, changing my world once again.

*This is the first book in La Flor Series and a standalone novel.
