Blurb: Huxley carries invisible scars from a near-fatal car accident. He sleepwalks through a job at his father’s company, marking time until he can quit and pursue his own dreams.
Everything changes the moment he makes eye contact with a stranger while riding to work. It’s as if he’s been shaken out of his stupor, and Huxley vows to find the man.
Thanks to a thieving ex-lover, Paul’s florist shop is on the brink of closing down. He needs to milk Valentine’s Day for all it’s worth—and the irony that a day dedicated to love might help undo the damage of a failed relationship is not lost on him.
When Huxley finds Paul at his shop, both men feel an instant attraction. Before long, they’re falling hard, but Huxley holds back. If Paul knew all the baggage he’s carrying, he might run.
Paul’s gut tells him Huxley is hiding something. Huxley looks like a keeper, but Paul can’t go through another disastrous romance.
When Valentine’s Day arrives, will they have anything to celebrate?
I thought this was sweet.
I LOVED Huxley’s determination to tackle his amaxophobia – fear of riding in a vehicle – after a near fatal car accident that happened to him almost a year ago. It must be pretty hard for him but Huxley didn’t give up. Duly noted he started to want to live again after he got a glimpse of Paul when Huxley was off to work, but still, it made Huxley wanted to get back in the saddle again, which was GOOD.
I also liked how Huxley slowly but surely dealt with his day-to-day job as a CEO. At first Huxley was just trying to get under the radar but then he finally showed what he was capable of. Good for you, Huxley!
Paul was okay. He was nice. Plus he was a florist ^^. The romance was lovely. But I liked this book for Huxley, I guess.
Oh, Paul’s friend, Carson definitely stole the spotlight!! I want a book about him, please!
Overall Impression: It was good!
