Axton Graves is the oldest brother in the Graves family and funeral home business. He has a reputation as a workaholic, which he lives up to until he’s had enough. Josie Garcia is a small-town florist and a good friend of Axton’s sister-in-laws. With a new greenhouse business and a surly neighbor, Josie has a lot on her plate, but the two are able to give each other a hand.
I think I need a vacation as much as Axton, and this little reading sojourn hit the spot to escape for a short while. It’s lighthearted, fun, and sexy.
“‘If we’re going to get frisky I want to make sure I’m not going to accidentally poke a stab wound you forgot to tell me about.’”
With action, danger, and suspense too.
The story moved along well. Maybe a little too fast; the end arrived sooner than I expected. I would have liked a little more of an epilogue rather than a sample of the first book. Hints at the next story would have been welcome too as I’m anxious to see other Grave family members get their special someone.
A highly recommended, cute, steamy, and romantic series, I enjoyed Axton and Josie’s story just as much as the previous ones. Axton is a smart and swoonworthy guy. He’s not a manwhore or a chauvinist, something the romance world tends to have too many of. We need more sweet, sexy, and respectful men like Axton.
Told via Axton and Josie’s alternating first person POV, it’s a story of a city boy and a country girl. Couples from the previous books have supporting roles as we see their happily ever afters play out. Carter even has a cameo chapter. Readers meet a few new characters too, including a lively introduction to Blossom who was a fun addition.
