I'm doomed... Doomed I tell you.... Wanna know why? Because the more books I have... The more I want... Crazy, right?
This particular lady has me wrapped around her fingers, because just a glimpse of a new book and I'm always eager to get it. I need them because every single book from her made me see things in a way that's beautiful and amazing.
Fifi Flowers is an amazing writer. Her books made me dream and I guarantee you that they will make the same thing to you. Her writing is simple, pretty

Unexpected Bliss was a short read that I absolutely LOVED! Saffron Courbe is basically an OCD woman who likes lists, and everything matching, which made me love her so much! She's an up and coming wedding planner, due to her amazing attention to detail, not to mention, her two other best friends, that share the business with her. Nowhere on her lists had Laird Hayes' name on them, and yet, they had drunk sex, exchanged no phone numbers, with an unexpected baby as a parting gift of their hot nigh ...more

I love that this is going to be a series, but each story will have its own ending. This is Saffron’s story. Three best friends, Saffron, London, and Savannah have their own bridal shop which is so much more. I loved Saffron probably because I understand her. She is very organized, has lists, checks her lists all the time, and feels that she has to follow the rules. The one time she doesn’t follow the rules, she gets stressed out. The good thing that came out of her unusual personality, she meets ...more

Fifi Flowers brings us a new exquisite and charming romance that brought plenty of smiles to my face and had my heart full and happy with steamy scenes, fabulous characters and alluring storyline! I fell madly for Unexpected Bliss. Charming, sweet, with plenty of sexy moments and also unexpected ones that added more spice to the story.

One of my favorite things about this book was the cover. It popped because it was so beautiful and stylish. And the characters w

A cute short read that will have you hooked from page one to the very last word! Saffron and Laird are planners. From sun up to sun down everything is as it should be but the thing with love is it never goes according to plan and oh boy did these to get it backward! From their first encounter Saffron was a jumbled mess but Laird knew he would do anything to keep her and when they finally let fate take control and stop planning things started to come together! The only issue was that their

Well written story with a nice storyline and plot. I like that the characters and how they develop.
A passionate and emotional read with twists. A different romance style than expected but enjoyable read. The dialogue could sometimes have been a bit better but absolutely recommendable read.

It is written in dual POV which gives the reader much more of the thoughts and feelings of the main characters. The epilogue is very welcomed and gives the story more to it and it finishes it better of than wit

This was a fun, fast-paced read! Saffron and Laird (such great names!) meet at a wedding. Laird knows right away that Saffron is his, she takes more convincing that Mr. Fantasy could actually want her! A few unexpected twists follow. Add in a great epilogue and I adored this book! I can't wait to read more from this series!!

A love story between two people who love order and makes plans, who share a night of unexpected bliss and the consequences and twists from that night. Can't wait to read more from this series and more from this author.

This is a really good quick read. Saffron is very independent and organized. Her world is organized from first meeting a guy ,to engagement and finally wedding. Laird turns her world upside down. Nothing goes as planned. Sometimes destiny has its own plan on how things turn out. Laird 's gives Saffron a gift. One that she didn't even know she wanted or needed. Can they overcome this mess their in or not.

Fifi Flowers has done it again. With great characters and a storyline that was heartwarming and simply adorable this book is a must read. Saffron has always planned everything, but it takes one night with Laird to throw everything out the window and just live in the moment. I absolutely loved these two and cannot wait to read more in this series.

Saffron is a wedding planner and has recently gone into business with her two best friends, running the Wedding Shop, a name they plan to change as they do so much more than plan weddings!

Cute, sweet story. Saffron knows what she wants. She has a plan, a system. What happens when suddenly nothing is going according to plan? Laird has been hurt. Now he just wants to live, mess around...nothing serious ever again until he sees Saffron and everything about her captivates him. There are a few surprises in store for them both. Can the wedding planner find her Happily Ever After?

This was an enjoyable read about Saffron and Laird. There were some unexpected things these two go through I didn't see coming, and kept me guessing at times on how it would work out. They're a great couple who are made for each other. *I recieved an Arc for my honest opinion.*
