WHY I READ IT
I’ve been a fan of Smith’s from the start and I really enjoy her characters.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
“ ’Tis better to never have loved and lost than to live with the regret of your stupidity.” ~ Sienna Miller, Wallflower
They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, or in this case, Wallflowers to behave. Then again . . .
Sienna Miller spent her whole life being the odd woman out. Shunned and misunderstood by her family, she finally has a chance for a new start thanks to Calla and Poppy, her Wallflower sisters. Now all she needs is a Prince Charming.
Bo Strawn is a cop with a troubled past. He’s stubborn and set in his ways until a certain Wallflower shakes up his life for good. Bo’s finally got a shot at happily ever after. That is, he’s got a shot if he can solve a mystery surrounding the Wallflowers and keep his headstrong woman off the back of a horse.
While each three books features a different couple, there is an underlying theme and storyline carrying throughout the books. They do need to be read in order.
I love that I know what to expect with a CP Smith book. Hot, possessive men; headstrong, stubborn, and loyal woman; insta-love done right; and a bit of underlying suspense to pull it all together. I am always going to great exceptional writing and storytelling that keeps me engaged from the first work until the last. CP Smith is one of the few authors who do justice with instant love stories. Sometimes, they’ll make a reference to how long the couple has been together, and I have to go back and look, because I cannot believe they have only been together for such a short time. Smith brings you so deep in these characters lives, that their personalities are ingrained in you. You care so deeply for them. When the first book of this “trilogy” ended, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Bo and Sienna! I wasn’t sure what I expected, but I sure liked what I got. Sienna redefined the word stubborn. But this girl was so loyal to her friends, that nothing, not even controlling (in the best way) Bo could stop her from taking care of her girls. Bo was hot. Seriously. I think he is the hottest guy Smith has given us so far. I needed a fan and a cold drink to get through some of those scenes. One of my favorite themes of the book was the friendship with Cali, Sienna, and Poppy. They have such an amazing bond that comes across beautifully in the story. You know they would do anything for each other, and they prove it time and time again. I know we all love the hot heroes in a story, but there is something to be said about sisterhood and the power it yields. With an ending like the one we got, is it too early to start begging for the next story?
