Title: Silver Blooms Flower Shop
Author: K.T. Dady
My Rating: 5 out of 5
Lexi and Bryce have never been friends. She views him as her childhood bully. So, she finds a way to stick it to the fancy-schmancy businessman by using his name as her pen name for the erotic romance books that she writes. That way, when potential clients try to check him out online, all they will see is fishnet stockings, sexy CEOs, and steamy sneak previews. But, when Not-Nice-Bryce comes back home to confront her, their past comes flooding back, and maybe it wasn’t as bad as she remembers.
My Review of Silver Blooms Flower Shop
I haven’t read any of the other books in the Pepper Bay series, but each book in the series works as a standalone, so you do not need to have read them all to keep up-to-date with the characters in the series. In Silver Blooms Flower Shop, we are introduced to Lexi and Bryce.
The story is written from the viewpoint of both Lexi and Bryce – initially when they were younger and at school together. We see how Lexi struggles with her confidence, making her the target of bullies and although Bryce doesn’t actually join in with the bullies – he certainly does nothing to protect her from them. The story then flips to the present day – Bryce is now a successful businessman and Lexi is an erotic novel author, writing under the pen name of Brice Silver.
Lexi doesn’t expect to see Bryce again, but when she does she is shocked to realise he knows about her writing – and her pen name! Sparks really do fly when Lexi sees Bryce again. Can there ever be more between them than childhood enemies?
Silver Blooms Flower Shop is such a great standalone book, with brilliantly written characters, incredible chemistry and I really enjoyed the dual aspect of seeing things from both Lexi and Bryce’s point of view – it really added a different dimension to the story. A must-read from me, and now I can’t wait to read the other books in the Pepper Bay series.
