I can admit that I had a little crush on Joe since I met him on Until November. I’ve always wanted to read this story and how he would find the BOOM in his life.
I haven’t read any books from the series The Wallflower by C.P. Smith but I am so going to read them at some point. Be sure that nothing would be easy and Joe would have to fight back if he wanted to have his happily ever after.
Colorful characters, sassy women who weren’t afraid of the challenge and mostly overwhelming father who would do anything to protect his interest, I meant his daughter.
You totally understood the moment Joe felt the BOOM. He wasn’t expecting to be literally captivated by a woman with her southern charm and witty personality. A voice that drew him in, this feeling impossible to ignore and creating this powerful bond, protectiveness and possessive side he haven’t felt before her. I adored this man for his selfless side, caring and passionate. He wasn’t wasting time, being always honest with his loved ones, and being at this time of his life when he felt that emptiness until her.
Bernice never felt like this before, it took one look to be totally under the charm of that bad ass silver fox. Falling in love was never on the cards due to her uber protective father, who never hold back, finding any means to make the men walking away so fast. Raising her niece like her daughter alone, she was independent, badass and totally not afraid of a challenge. But she wasn’t prepared for tornado Joe who made her head spin so fast that she was already drunk on love.
I adored this family she created with her niece and her friends, their significant others, this tight-knit family, protective and supportive. There was definitely craziness in the air but it wasn’t making Joe bolt for sure. He went for it and made his lady the one, no matter what.
I’ve been entertained for sure, the drama was a bit overwhelming at times but still I had a really great time reading about how Joe and Bernice fell in love.
Passionate, steamy and so darn sweet.
