I’ve never thought much about Orson Naples.

He’s a cute guy who I’d seen around town a few times, but then one day he up and left and didn’t reappear until a few years later. No one knows where he went or what he was doing, all this gossipy town knows is that he’s a widower, owns the florist, and is friends with that divorced group that hang out at the Killer Brew all the time.

But then one day I step into his flower shop and go from rarely thinking about him, to him constantly being on my mind.

There’s a restlessness to him that I’m dying to unlock answers to.

And his eyes linger on me a little too long for a straight man …


Ford Thomas is a pest. A delightful one. A tempting one. But I’m too old for games.

The ones I’ve played in the past have always led me to trouble which is why I vowed to settle down and live a quiet life.

So when Ford walks into my shop all uncontained energy and flirty quips in a pair of heavy work boots, I know I should show him the door.

I don’t need fun. I don’t need experiences.

Especially when those experiences have me questioning things I thought I knew about myself.

Add to your TBR List!

Budding Attraction is the latest novel in the Divorced Men’s Club series and can be read as a standalone. Orson and Ford are great together and I really loved how the relationship develops slowly and without any drama or misunderstandings.

It was great to see Orson processing his grief and slowly opening up to people. Ford is someone who uses flirting and endearments as a shield to protect himself and it’s beautiful how he lets Orson in.

This is a slowburn romance with bisexual awakening, florist/mechanic, with low angst and if you’re looking for something fun, definitely pick this up.

I think next book is Art’s and I’m really looking forward to his story. I also think there’s a couple of characters who might get a book but let’s see.
