He's #5 on her Bouquet List. Tall, dark...and completely forbidden.

After a too-close call with death, Yasmin Katsalos is checking some things off her Bouquet List—things to do after you thought you were going to die. Fun fashion choices? Check. Purple hair and a cute diamond nose stud? Check, check. Now she's on to item #5: a flirty fling with a man who's tall, dark, rich...and totally out of her league.

And restaurateur Lane Griffiths definitely fits the bill.

Lane isn't just out of Yasmin's league. He's also her brother's best friend and therefore off-limits. Now that they're working together on renovations for her family's wedding hall, however, Yasmin has plenty of opportunities to bewitch, bother, and boldly seduce. He's reserved. She's relaxed. The only thing they share is a spark of attraction that's too strong to resist. But is Lane just another item on her bouquet list... or has Yasmin found something on her list that will last?

Kassiah: This book was really cute. I wasn’t crazy about the fact that Yasmin’s #5 was a fling with a tall, dark man instead of specifically with Lane. Still Lane and Yasmin had chemistry in spades and I loved the way her family dynamics worked, including with Lane. I really liked him and loved how this was a fun twist, with the girl being more flirty and trying to get the guy to be a little bad. I really loved that there was dual POV here, and I wanted them to be together.

A word of caution–Bliss titles pretty much fade to black, and this one is a “Red Hot” Bliss title. But that doesn’t mean you get a whole lot more than a regular Bliss book. It ain’t Brazen, for sure.

The Bouquet List had lots of things I love–sizzling hot chemistry, a fun storyline with little angst, and a great cast of supporting characters. Fans of My Big Fat Greek Wedding will love this one.
