ARC Review: Bloom Box (Heartsville) by Cate Ashwood

If there's one thing William Sullivan knows less about than how to run a business, it’s flowers. When Will is left carrying responsibility for the flower shop he’d leased for his cheating ex-boyfriend, he is sure it will lead him into financial ruin.

Just when he’s about to abandon all hope, in walks Milo Hart—young, overflowing with energy, and perhaps best of all, a genius when it comes to flowers. Will hires him on the spot and they begin a working partnership that might be Will’s only saving grace. The more time they spend together, the more Will’s feelings for Milo evolve and Will must choose between keeping things strictly business, or taking a chance to let love bloom.

Dani's rating:

Milo & Will's story

This is the third story I've read in the Heartsville series and my favorite thus far!

The stories are standalones and do not have to be read in a particular order, although I "met" Milo, the sparkly florist, in Bookmarked and Clique and was eager to read his story.

Bloom Box, however, is not told from Milo's POV but from Will's—Will, who plans to start a florist shop with his partner only to find out that his partner has been cheating on him all along.

Will doesn't know what hits him when Milo walks into his sad, empty shop clutching a resume. He just knows that Milo is wet and lovely and has experience working with green things.

I loved these two men together. Will is about 15 years older than Milo, who's still in college, but the age difference doesn't matter. Milo knows so much more about business, not to mention flowers, than Will, and Will is happy for the help.

The relationship develops slowly (Will resists Milo for as long as he can, but, let's face it, he doesn't stand a chance), and the sexy times, when they come, are hot and tender.

I loved the sweet moments here: Milo & Will working together, getting coffee, strolling the flower market .. they just fit.

This is a charming story with a bit of comfort/healing and a great HEA!
