Learning Clay was involved in a rock climbing accident and went through the rehabilitation process, she wants him to share his experience with a troubled teenager to give the boy hope.
Paige and Clay are inexorably drawn to each other. But can Clay trust Paige and share his secret? Can Paige dare to follow her own dreams?
What I liked about Love in Bloom :
- The characters. There was so much depth to them that I expected Paige or Clay to come strolling into the room. Plus the chemistry was sizzling between Paige and Clay from day 1.
- The romance. All I have to say is O.M.G. I’m not saying any more….you need to read the story.
- I actually liked everything about the book. It was one of those that grabbed you from the beginning and made you keep on reading. Because you wanted to find out what was going to happen.
What I disliked about Love in Bloom:
* The ending. While it was perfect for the book, it seemed a little rushed and too predictable for me.
* Paige’s background story. All I have to say is when it was revealed (during a conversation with Doc), I went (to myself) WTF and shook my head.
* Clay’s background and his trust issues. He went hot and cold with Paige at the worst times and to be honest if a guy did that to me, I would have been long gone.
