It’s Valentine’s weekend and for Skylar Everclear, it’s a holiday he wishes he could forget. Mysterious roses keep popping up on his doorstep. No idea what is going, a little disturbed by this secret admirer, he tries to forget it all since he just got rid of the latest line of loser boyfriends and just wants to do his job at the local bakery. But when he meets his new neighbor, Marc Douglas, he finds himself drawn to the quiet young man even as he tries to not let his libido take over. But on Valentine’s Day, a mysterious rose again pops up with a note to meet his admirer that night. Will Skylar take a chance that love is right there waiting for him?
What a cute little Valentine story. Normally I avoid anything to do with Valentine’s but this was one I’m glad I read.
I was with Skylar in this book. Lol. Valentine’s Day is a holiday I wish didn’t exist. And Skylar is fed up with it. The cheesy cards, the roses that cost a fortune, but most of all it’s a reminder of being alone. What’s even weirder is that he keeps getting these roses on his doorstep that are freaking him out. Does he have a stalker? All he wants to do is work and forget loser asshole boyfriends. But then he meets Marc, who he can’t help but just stare at. Tension is thick in the air between these two.
I swear Skylar was me in this book, lol. I felt such sympathy for him. Having to deal with boyfriends who cheat, lie and are assholes and it being Valentine’s weekend has made him want to bury his head in the sand. He just wants to work to forget. And it’s so sad because he’s such a sweet man. He wants to be loved by someone so much but is tired of having his heart broken. Don’t we all? Marc helped though. Skylar got to meet someone he really felt something for when he met Marc. Marc is a quiet shy man who is really intrigued by Skylar as well. And the chemistry is electric. Now he just has to get rid of his secret admirer to see if there is anything between them. Or does he?
If you want something quick and romantic, this is the book for you. It’s a short little story that just makes your heart all aglow. Happy reading!
