If there’s one thing William Sullivan knows less about than how to run a business, it’s flowers. When Will is left carrying responsibility for the flower shop he’d leased for his cheating ex-boyfriend, he is sure it will lead him into financial ruin.
Just when he’s about to abandon all hope, in walks Milo Hart—young, overflowing with energy, and perhaps best of all, a genius when it comes to flowers. Will hires him on the spot and they begin a working partnership that might be Will’s only saving grace. The more time they spend together, the more Will’s feelings for Milo evolve and Will must choose between keeping things strictly business, or taking a chance to let love bloom.
Roses, lavender, orchids. A flower shop blooming with flowers with the floral scent surrounding you. This is the setting of this beautiful and wonderful book that I grew to love.
Will has the bare bones of a flower shop in his possession that he doesn’t know what to do with. In walks Milo to rescue him and show him the way. You’re taken on their journey of creating this flower shop with drama aplenty and not knowing what’s going to happen around the corner to a wonderful HEA.
Milo’s mouth is so endearing. Not that way. The words that come out of his mouth have no inhibitions. It’s like his brain is on the Autobahn speeding forward to shoot words out of his mouth with all possible speed. It’s so cute.
Even though Will is maybe 10 years Milos senior he doesn’t treat him like a kid. He values him and respects him and completely appreciates him. He treats him as an equal. I love that in relationships. Their relationship is simply a beautiful thing.
If you want a book that you can read in front of a roaring fire or one that will help you relax after a long day at work, this is the book for you. This book will put a smile on your face and take you away on a flowery journey. Can you tell, I highly recommend this book.
4 Stars for Bloom Box by Cate Ashwood in the Heartsville Series. This is the last book in the series and I really like Cate Ashwoods book. She has it all going on. It is a perfect way to end this series with a book that keeps your attention and has you loving her men.

This was the last book in the Heartsville series and I can honestly say I loved all of them. This book was just wonderful. Milo was a very strong character and I loved him from the beginning. There is a 15 year age difference but that doesn’t matter in the end. Both characters are sweet and loving and that is just what Will needs at this point (along with help with his business). Another great story from an author I love.
Cate Ashwood wrote her very first story in a hot pink binder when she was in the second grade and found her passion for writing. Her first successful foray into romance writing came five years later when she wrote her best friend, who was experiencing a case of unrequited love, her own happily ever after.
Cate’s life has taken a number of different and adventurous roads. She now lives a stone’s throw from the ocean, just outside of Vancouver, British Columbia with her husband, son, and two cats. Her life is filled with family and friends, travel, and, of course, books.
