No Flowers Required (Love Required, #2)

No Flowers Required - Cari Quinn 3.5 Stars Let me start by saying that when I first saw the summary for this on goodreads I was sold. I mean, come on, a guy with piercings and tattoos? If we were in a bookstore and there was a line about a mile long with people waiting to purchase books and get home, I’d have knocked them all out of the way in order to get to the cashier first to pay for this book and gotten myself home. Long story short, I was completely sold.So, Alexa Conroy owns a flower shop that has seen better days. Better days that is until the recession hit and people just didn’t give a shit about the quality of her work anymore and were interested in the cheaper stuff that could be bought elsewhere. So yeah, Alexa took a hit. A big hit. She has to sell her freaking dream home and moves into one of the crappy, rundown apartments above her shop. Let me just say right now that I felt for her. How would you feel if you had to get rid of your dream place in order to make ends meat? I tell ya, this whole recession thing is a real shitty downer, but I digress.Dillon James is set to inherit the big business that is set to foreclose on Alexa’s little shop. He, however, is not your typical heir. Not only is he reluctant to take the reins of the corporation but he’s not what comes to mind when you think of the head of a major operation that is worth a shitload. Let’s just say that piercings and tattoos are not what comes to my mind when I think like that. Never mind the fact that it’s not nice to judge, nor is it right.But sparks fly when Dillon and Alexa meet. It’s all a matter of mistaken identity, however. It’s also a mistake that Dillon does not want to rectify seeing as if Alexa found out who he really is the shit would hit the fan and he’d essentially lose her. No, guys, he doesn’t want that. Not with the sizzling chemistry that these two seem to have and the fact that they’re actually happy and enjoying each other. But, alas, all good things must come to an end… or did they?You’ll need to read it and find out!Overall I really enjoyed this story. It was well-written, evenly paced and quite entertaining. It was also a really quick read for me and I’m rather glad that I took a chance on it. Looking forward to what next Cari Quinn has in store for us. Review also posted on - Fic Talk
