Hadley Gentry was nothing like everyone imagined and the funny thing was that she had no idea what people expected as she had not asked to be popular.

Gerard Perry was never given a chance as he was teased and ridiculed from the first day of kindergarten until he graduated from high school and went off to college.

When Gerard comes back to town a new doctor, he runs into one

Clashing hearts was a sweet story that had an interesting storyline. Clashing hearts was a quick and romantic read that had really sweet characters in it.

Hadly was secretly lonely and was different then the other girls that lived in her hometown. She didn’t listen to gossip or spread gossip around like everyone else that lived in the town. It was evident that she was a good person and I really enjoyed her.

Gerard is the sexy doctor that has moved back to his hometown. He has came back to claim th

How in the world did I miss Clashing Hearts when it released? This was just the perfect, warm and fuzzy read.

Let me just say that the thing that made me fall in love with this author's writing was her attention to details. It's was her ability to make me feel like I was inside the story.
Every single book made me dream, laugh, stress out but also blush and something else...
Clashing Hearts tells the stories of Hadley and Gerard.
Gerard was a typical nerd back in highschool and he was bullied and teased a lot. He had a huge crush for the gorgeous Hadley but since she was the homecoming queen she didn't n

So this story is going to seriously steal your heart. I had to read it slowly to absorb the entire situation and all its overwhelming feelings. Gerard has been in love with Hadley his entire life but during his teenage years he was the typical nerd bullied at school. Hadley, on the other hand, was the gorgeous homecoming queen, and currently owns a spa in their childhood town. Gerard comes back home with a complete makeover. A gorgeous doctor who has decided to move back to his hometown practici ...more

I love Fifi Flowers’ books because in addition to writing books, she is also an artist so each story feels as though the reader is stepping into one of her paintings, allowing us to see each scene in vivid color. Her newest release, Clashing Hearts is no different, I felt so at home in this book, not just for its gorgeous imagery, but the sweet and sexy romance between two hearts that are destined to connect.

Hadley Gentry and Gerard Perry meet cute and we, the reader can’t help but be pulled in

Hadley is alone, unhappy and although she has her own business and house, she is lonely! Gerard was the one in school that people picked on, he moved away from the small town and turned his life around. When he moved back to his hometown he bumped into Hadley, he knew her, but she didn't know him! This is a lovely love story of how two people from different backgrounds find love, but when the truth comes out can they find their happy ever after?
I really enjoyed this book, it was easy to read an

Some people look back on school fondly, remembering the good times and the friends they made. However, others, once they receive their diploma, prefer to never think of those years again as the memories are all bad. Hadley, as evidenced by being named Homecoming Queen, fell into the former, though popularity was never something she asked for. Gerard, on the other hand, hated school due to the constant teasing and bullying he endured. The one bright spot, even if he never acted on it, was Hadley, ...more

Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:

A brand new story from Fifi Flowers that is sweet, contemporary, with an almost blue collar type of romance that felt all homey and is very realistic. The characters are downright lovable as is the story! I love how utterly....real this romance felt. Tender and sweet, this is the type of romance real life people dream about. I sighed a plenty with Clashing Hearts. From the cover to the story this was a WINNER and I couldn't be more thrilled for this AMAZING new
A quick sweet read. Hadley and Gerard's romance is flirty and fun. Gerard has always had a thing for Hadley since they went to school together. Now years later and all grown up Gerard is back in town and he and Hadley hit it off, but things soon become complicated once Hadley realizes all he has kept secret. Will they be able to overcome the past and have a future?

Even the best memories of the past do not always hold true to what actually happened. This hold true for Gerald a/k/a Dr. GQ, who remembers his new neighbor as a Homecoming Queen who had everything in high school. Hadley's version of the past was trying to survive while her mother worked odd jobs to make ends meet. But when these two come together as adults, will the thoughts of the past bring them together or tear them apart? With great characters and a storyline that held my interest I highly ...more

Loved this book. You think you know someone...often your interpretation of the person is far from the real thing. I love the carefree, creative, and non-gossip style of Hadley. I want to meet her in real life. The grass is always greener-turns into a happy ending. A quick, fun read.

A story that gives you all the right feels and just turns your insides into mush! Fifi Flowers has given us a very well written book with a wonderfully heart melting storyline. I mean, boy is bullied, boy leaves town to go to college, boy comes back an Doctor and has he eyes set on his high school crush. Boy wants girl, boy goes after girl. Girl isn't the person everyone thought she was. Funny how you are able to really become yourself once you finish high school!!!

The characters are so very wel

Lovely “Second Chance” Romance!! 4.3 stars

Delightful story of the romance between Hadley and Gerard. Hadley was her high school’s home-coming queen, but that did not mean she had an easy time growing up. Gerard has just returned to town and purchased the Doctor’s practice next-door to Hadley’s shop. Gerard has come a long way from being known as “Geeky Gerry Perry” and those changes mean in his return Hadley does not realize they knew each other in high school.

Another sweet and sexy read in the vein of Cafelicious, by Fifi Flowers. Although not related to that series in any way, that’s what it most strongly reminded me off. Hadley’s a salon owner wishing she could change it into something different but is stuck in the past because it belonged to an old friend who had left it to her. Gerard, is a doctor who wants more that to just treat families. He has plans for his new surgery, and for his former school mates when he returns to his hometown.

This is a sweet second chance romance that reminded me that not everything or everyone is always what they seem to be from outside appearances. Gerard also learns this after coming back to his home town after years away, determined to show certain people just how far he's come from that kid he was in high school. I believe this is very relatable for a lot of people. Hadley is like myself a little I think. She keeps to herself mostly, hanging out with her friends, ignoring all the town gossip the ...more

Another beautiful love story by Fifi Flowers. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot, writing style and characters, I can't wait for the next book in the series

From the moment Hadley and Gerald meet outside her beauty salon they are both instantly drawn to each other and are keen to take things further. He is a doctor and has just bought the medical practice next door to her salon, what she doesn't know is they went to the same school as teenagers and he has loved her ever since, from afar.

What a great feel good romance book! The author has written a quick read that is a lighthearted fun romance with characters they you can’t help but fall in love with.

The storyline is flirty, fun and full meaning as this couple meet years later after childhoods that were less than stellar. The author will have you smiling as Hadley and Gerard explore their feelings, old wounds and new beginnings. 2 Thumbs Up for a book well done!

This was such a sweet story! Hadley and Gerard were amazing together and their love was exactly what many people would like for themselves. The two characters fit together so well!
I was captivated by the cover and the blurb and the book defydelivered. I don't want to give the story away, but the author created the perfect combination of romance and a bit of angst.
I highly recommend this amazing contemporary romance book that will melt your heart and keep you sighing until the end!

This is my first experience reading a story written by this author. Although it was a quick read it was full of sweetness and romance. This is a 4 star story.

Gerard and Hadley meet and they hit it off right away. But they actually went to school together, he knows who she is but she doesn't remember him. The events that transpired years ago where perceived quite differently then they actually were. It's a case of misinterpretation.

This is a nice love story that was fun to read. It was enterta

I truly loved this book, I have loved everyone of Fifi's books. Hadley was lonely and unhappy. Gerard was the one that got picked on back in high school. After he moves back to town they run into each other. This is a great story about finding love where you least expect it and coming from different backgrounds. Will they be able to find love with each other or will the past prevent them from being happy? This is a must read!!

Hadley and Gerard grew up together yet in separate worlds. Hadley was the "it" girl. Immensely popular and the homecoming queen yet behind the doors she was quiet, shy, poor and a bit lonely. Gerard was a nerd growing up. Always teased and made fun of yet he came from two wealthy doctors, had plenty of money and his life mapped out. He was lonely and yearned for Hadley from afar. When we fast forward into adulthood, Hadley is struggling to balance the loss of her family and their dreams versus h ...more

This is a sweet and tender romance. There were a couple of instances where the author used improper grammar. That drives me crazy but the story was good enough for the four star rating.

This was a sweet romance story with a quirky feel to it.
I just didn't connect with the story or characters at all. I'm not sure if it was the writing style or the actual story but it just wasn't for me.
