I felt the story was good but at some times rushed. It felt the passage of time was just a week or so before they were saying I love you to each other and moving in. But with all the poetry that Basil was saying to Pansie she couldn't help but to fall so hard for him.
I don't give out many little star ratings but this book I'm sorry I did not capture me it did not do anything it's actually kind of bored me at first but I still read on and my first assumption others back was oh it's gonna get better but it didn't not for me the characters are just not real to me. Characters from me and I can pop through the pages are the best kinds of characters and these didn't do it I'm sorry to say.
This is a quick read. Might be just the right amount of quirkiness that he might want to read.
Happy sexy reading
I didn’t process his next words; beauty, perfumy, flowers, glow… I was sure they were said in complete sentences but I was in la la land. Dreamy is the word I would describe him.
Funny, I had never been one to read or even like poetry and since he walked into my café words played in my brain. He played in my brain and I quite liked it.
I could hear them in my head telling me to loosen up, let him explore and nurture my garden of earthly delights. Since seeing his words on the napkins, they had been referencing sex by inventing naughty garden terms that included texting phallic produce to my phone.
… thanks to poetic words whispered intimately from Basil’s incredible mouth. Petals, silk, velvet, fragrant, love… yes, he was quite fond of that word and used it often. If not for him putting on the breaks, turning us so that my back was to his front, encouraging us to sleep, I would’ve been deflowered. It didn’t matter that I was no longer a virgin, I just knew by the way he caressed me in all the right places that pollination with him would mean so much more than it ever had.
I told myself don’t be naïve, stay on your toes. Which wasn’t so easy when he was always touching me tenderly and saying things like, ‘I miss your lips,’ as he moved his over mine before closing the passenger door, and moving to the driver side.
Oh, just one more block and elevator ride and you can fertilize my garden, pluck my petals… No more sexy words.
Forever til the end of time, walk the earth with me, be mine… I love you.
Oh, swoon! A handsome, tender, and thoughtful man who woos and expresses his feelings for the woman he adores by leaving neatly penned lists of sweet, romantic, and poetic words on a clean napkin for the cafe owner to find. He speaks eloquently in dreamy sonnets and declares his insta-love on their first real date. I reveled in this refreshingly angst-free, and delightfully sweet and steamy novella. Cast with quirky and adorable characters, the writing was crisp, playful, pleasantly amusing, and highly engaging. I am desperately hoping the rest of the series will provide similar tasty treats.
Soon after that, he becomes a regular customer, always ordering the same tall, dark and aromatic coffee...and bringing his wallet every time. She slowly realizes he is probably not homeless, but still isn't sure what to make of him. One day, he shows up at the café's poetry night and sweeps her off her feet. Now she just needs to decide what she wants.
I would give this book 2.5 stars. I liked the concept but I don't think I would have gone off into the dark alley with Basil quite as quickly as Pansie did. I am curious as to what the next books in the series are like, though. I was asked by the author for an honest review.
At open mic he finally said his name was Basil. He wrote a poem. Basil owned a Garden Center. They both were attracted to each other. It was really intense but filled with passion.
The author is a new to me and let me tell you that I was immersed right at the beginning. This is a standalone but there are 5 other books in this series. The writing was great, the setting was neat and the characters were described well. I would definitely recommend this book to others.
Parts of the story I liked:
While reading at the 89% mark I liked what was happening.
“Excuse me, but could I get a cup of coffee. I know I shouldn’t even be in here. I truly apologize. Just plain dark roast is all I need. Nothing fancy. Just tall, dark and aromatic”
“Most of the best things in life are worth the wait.”
Writing Style- 5/5
