Jacquie read The Flower Arrangement by K.C Carmine.
From the blurb:
After a bitter divorce leaves him heartbroken, Brendan finds solace in running his beloved flower shop. Wary of being burnt again, he vows never to jump into another relationship. Until one day when he visits a hair salon and meets a man with skilled hands and a cheeky smile. Intrigued by this handsome hairdresser, Brendan returns to the salon on the first Wednesday of every month, hoping that their slowly-blooming friendship may one day turn into something more.
Hugh’s always dreamed of having his own hair salon. But when he finally achieves his goal, he realises there’s something still missing in his life—a man to share it with. After a disastrous date with a client, Hugh vows never to go down that road again. But his resolve begins to crumble when he meets Brendan: six-foot-three of solid muscle, brandishing a large bouquet of flowers. With his kind eyes, chequered shirt, and dad-next-door appeal, Hugh can’t help but doubt Brendan will be interested in his advances.
Slowly, but surely, Brendan and Hugh emerge from their shells. Sparks fly as their carnal desires are let loose, plunging them headlong into wild pleasures, heady passion, and dizzy highs, all wrapped in a warm cocoon of tenderness and laughter.
A story of second chances, idiots in love, steamy jacuzzi scenes, and explicit descriptions.
A standalone MM book from the contemporary Pursuit of Love series.
If this is the level of steam that we'll get in The Blindfold Date, then sign me up! Okay, preorder done!
Steamy and sweet from the get go, I really liked both MC's and am grateful that we get the pov each of them.
There's enough background in each to get a sense of their background and make me curious for the coming book but not too much to be overwhelming. I really liked the side characters, they performed their supporting roles well without taking too much attention from the story.
I felt the connection between them and the epilogue was so cute!
