My thoughts: I give it ❤️❤️. Really? Are they really natural enemies? Cute read about a blossoming romance between two botanist.
Stefan initially appears as uptight and competitive. He graduated with a PhD and received a job straight out of college. He has lived a life of solitude as he finds he works better with plants than with people.
Milo is a fun loving, charming guy who people tend to like. He works in a Botanical Garden where he helps high school kids in the community discover their love for plants. Needless to say him and Stefan are opposites.
So when Stefan see’s an article about Milo in a magazine with 30 under 30 botanist his competitive side comes out. He takes it among himself to find out what Milo is all about.
Lets just say when the two initially meet they do not get along. However, after a few more interactions sparks fly and their relationship changes.
Overall, it was a sweet read.
When opposites attract, love blooms in unexpected places.
Buttoned-up botanist Stefan Albemarle has felt like an outsider his whole life. As a result, he mostly keeps to himself—makes it easier not to notice that no matter how he tries, people think he’s a know-it-all and a snob.
Freewheeling urban gardener Milo Rios has worked hard to get where he is, and he’s passionate about his job at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. He can get along with almost anyone, but no one has ever made him care enough to stick around.
When Stefan and Milo meet on Milo’s tour of the Botanic Garden, it’s hatred at first clash. But hatred quickly turns to lust as Milo shows Stefan how exquisite it can feel to lose the control he’s clung to for so long. As Stefan’s mask begins to slip, Milo sees a deep vulnerability in the prim academic. Once he’s experienced Milo’s world, Stefan can admit that he wants more from life than professional success. If they can work together, Stefan and Milo just might be able to cultivate the future they both yearn for.
