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. 


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.

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. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics

Johnaka's Review

“All the feels, 5 stars”

Hart takes us on a journey with Luke and Tess. They are opposites in the best kind of way. He loves adventure and winging it where Tess likes her schedule and the known. Two people who shouldn’t work but with Hart’s witchcraft they do. I laughed, I swooned, and at times I wanted to gibs smack a character or two. One thing is for sure I cannot wait to see where Hart takes the rest of the Bennett’s on their journeys to love.

Luke loves learning a little bit of everything and has never had the desire to stay in one place or job for long. Now he’s back home in NYC after a couple years in LA. He’s home to save the flower shop that’s been in his family for generations. What he didn’t expect was Tess. Well that’s a lie, he knew Tess would be there but he didn’t expect to click with her. To want her. Will he be able to convince her to take a chance on him?

Tess has worked for the Bennett’s for years and she wouldn’t have it any other way. She has her routine and is happy with her life. But is she really happy or just content? When Luke comes home, she can’t help but let the old hate flare. You know what they say though, there’s a fine line between love and hate. Which side of the line will Tess land on?

“He disarmed me, stole my grenades, took down my walls brick by brick, left me defenseless.”
