A not-so-delicate girl…
Tori doesn’t have time for love, not when she has to be at the flower market at four every morning. Her shop, Tori’s Blooms, is just scraping by, so being hired to style the flowers for the society wedding of the year could put her business on the map.
If she makes it out alive, that is. It’s not a Bridezilla that Tori has to worry about. It’s the bride’s demanding, perfectionist—and drop-dead gorgeous—father.
An all-too-demanding man…
CEO Gabriel gets exactly what he wants, or else. His little girl is getting married, and he’s taking a hands-on interest in everything—including the beautiful florist whose baby blues have his protective alpha side roaring to possess her.
Tori is the woman for Gabriel, today, tomorrow and forever, and he’ll be taking her pretty flower before anyone can say “I do.”
Author’s note: this is a short, steamy, over-the-top and safe insta-love romance that will have you sighing with happiness. No cheating, only a big flowery happy every after!
May be spoilers:
This is the first story that I have read by this author.
His Innocent Flower has 10 chapters with an epilogue and is about Gabriel and Tori.
Tori is a down on her luck flower shop owner. She’s struggling to keep her shop open.
She meets Gabriel as he’s looking for a florist for his daughter’s wedding.
Definite instaconnection/instalove when they meet. He’s all in from the beginning. He definitely knows what he wants.
I do want to say that his wife died 7 years ago, so he’s not still grieving and missing her. I don’t like reading a story with a dead spouse if I feel the new love is second best. Thankfully, I never felt that with this one. If anything, I felt that Tori was his one, his soulmate.
She’s a virgin and he’s been celibate for many years.
They are apart for 2 weeks as she freaks for a minute and avoids him until she can’t anymore.
They are absolutely so sweet together. I really loved it. The steamy parts aren’t a lot, but what there is is pretty hot.
No drama, no cheating, 2 week separation.
Epilogue is 18 months out. They get married and have a baby girl. I do wish it was further out as we see them on the day they get married. Still a good read though. Definitely won’t be the last time I read this author.
I gave it 🌟🌟🌟🌟. Thanks for reading.
