Synopsis

Everyone hates parts of their job.

Maybe it’s the paperwork. Maybe it’s the day-to-day grind. Maybe it’s that client who never knows what they want or the guy who always cooks fish in the microwave.

But not me. I love every corner of the Longbourne Flower Shop, every flower, every petal, every stem. I love the greenhouse, and I love Mrs Bennet, my boss. I love creating, and I love being a florist. I don’t hate anything at all.

Except for Luke Bennet.

The Bennet brothers have come home to help their mom save the flower shop, and Luke is at the helm. His smile tells a tale of lust, loose and easy. He moves with the grace of a predator, feral and wild. A thing unbridled, without rules or constraint.

When he comes home to save Longbourne, I almost can’t be mad at him.

Almost.

He doesn’t remember that night I’ll never forget. That kiss, touched with whiskey and fire. It branded me like a red-hot iron. But it meant nothing to him.

Everyone hates part of their job, and I hate Luke Bennet.

Because if I don’t, I’ll fall in love with him.

3 -Stars

Let me start off by saying that I had a hard time getting into this book (there’s no way it should have taken me 5 days to read this story).
I knew it was just me because I’m such an emotional reader and I had just finished reading a slew of paranormal romances.
Changing gears and reading a contemporary romance took me a little adjusting to.

I liked this story.
I liked the characters.

Luke who lived free, tried anything once, put on the front that he was carefree and lived easy, but who really was sensitive, loyal, compassionate, and honourable.

Tess who liked structure, lists, routine and consistency.
She’s was terrified of loss and being hurt but once she loves: She’s loyal, compassionate, and loving.

These two characters complimented one another once they sorted themselves out and got on the same page.

Wendy’s character was a mess and added just the right amount of angst to the story without taking away from Luke and Tess’s story.
But, what I had a hard time with was the solution Tess and Luke’s mom came up with to help Wendy.
Don’t get me wrong I’m all for forgiveness and moving on with your life, and tough love, but there’s no way “I” could ever or would ever have been okay with this solution.
It took Tess a couple of days to come to terms with how she felt and how she would proceed with Luke.
I just thought that this solution happened too fast and was too easily accepted. (I do understand that for the sake of the story that there wasn’t a lot of time.)

There are a few other things with what I’ll call “The Wendy Solution” that didn’t sit well with me, but these are personal opinions and I don’t want to give away any spoilers.

This was a good story.
I liked the characters and the writing

About Staci

 

AuthorPics

 

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven-year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
