She’s tied up at her boss.

The last thing Lochlan wanted in a new assistant was some inexperienced, gorgeous, submissive blonde. However, a promise to a friend ensures that’s exactly what he’s stuck with.

May knows she’s out of her league, not only in her new job, but with her boss. He makes her want things she’s never considered—kinky, sensual, wicked things.

This was a classic office romance and I really enjoyed it. It was an intense story with likable main characters, explosive chemistry and just enough kink to keep things interesting :)

Lochlan never really believed his long time personal assistant and right hand would really follow through on her promise to retire. So when he comes back after a trip overseas, he isn’t happy to find his assistant heading out the door and leaving him with a fresh faced and beautiful young woman with limited experie

This book was so sweet. It was sexy and swoon worthy too. The characters drew me in. I could not put the book down once I started it. I just love the Collins clan!
An office romance. Although H didn't like how young h was as his assistant when he saw her at the first time, they still had a professional relationship. Then it changed when he found how much burdens she carried.

I liked how loving H's family members were to each other, and even to h when they didn't know her at all. Although H seemed to be cold at first, he did everything to help h.

The only thing I didn't like was how stubborn h was. I got how independent she had to be for bearing so much burd

I adore series that follows a family, and one of my absolute favorite is Mari Carr's Wild Irish/Wilder Irish series. The latest, May Flowers, is a wonderful addition to this family saga.

Lochlan Wallace follows in his father's dominant footsteps (and I LOVE me some Will Wallace from Come Monday). A confirmed bachelor with his own company, he's promptly put on his rear by his young, submissive brand new PA, May Flowers. What follows is wonderful story of a man who was born to protect and wrap thos

Another awesome Wilder Irish book! I so love this family! May Flowers was just everything that I was expecting. Lochlan and May were so great together and complimented each other perfectly.

Lochlan has always sworn off marriage and kids. He doesn’t believe in the family “curse” of falling hard and fast in love. He’s kind of always done things his own way. He’s happy running his business, living alone and having the occasional hook up with someone who knows the deal and is ok with it. He’s into s

2.5 Stars

I thought this story started out strong, but I wish it would have fleshed out the characters more. I don't feel like the story was as sensual as the synopsis made me think it would be, but that wasn't necessarily a bad thing.

May and Lochlan could have developed a great relationship and at times I really felt they did, but then days or weeks would skip and we had to just assume that their professional and personal life was developing. For someone as staunch against marriage and kids as L
This series makes my heart happy. Mari Carr’s ability to make you FEEL her characters is a testament to her talent. The Collins family of Baltimore is one you will wish to be a part of, I know I certainly do.

This story is sweet, funny, sexy, hot and smart. Mari makes each story unique without being predictable. Each person of this family has their own strength despite what are true-life hurdles. How she pulls us into the story’s world where we get to come out at the end in a better place (even

Oh my lawd! I love this family. I have days where I want to give up my own for theirs. This book made me realize why. From people in the original series coming into this book, to new characters, which I love.

It has hot steamy sex, smartly timed snarky comments, to the general cherished love aspect that is normal requirement of Mari Carr.

Tears, yes. Laughter, completely. Hot, needing a fan moments, duh!

Wanna not be disappointed? Read the book. Actually start at the beginning. Hell, go all the

This book is part of the Wilder Irish series but it can definitely be read as a stand alone novel. That said, it is by far, my favorite of the series so far! Considering how steamy some of the scenes are, it seems surprising that I would also label this as a sweet feel good romance. But seeing how Lochlan changes after meeting May was just unbelievably sweet and romantic. He went from a man who never wanted a relationship and couldn't even say the "K" word (kids) to wanting everything with May. ...more

May Flowers by Mari Carr is book is book 5 in the Wilder Irish Series. This is the story of Lochlan and May. I have not yet read the previous books so for me this was easily a standalone book.
Lochlan has grown his business to be one of the richest one around and of course making him rich too. Although he has strong family roots he enjoys the playbook life. Then his assistant who is an older women who he adores says she is retiring hires May to take her place. May is a struggling women trying to

I love to read stories that I just cannot put the book down, I devoured this one in one sitting!
I don’t how else to say that I just love and adore the way Mari Carr tells a story. The Collins clan is like family to those of us who have been following this series. May Flowers in the next story in the continuation of the next generation.

Lochlan and May were made for each other, relationships take work and theirs was no exception. Lochlan is dominant and sees May’s submissive side and it calls to h

Have you read the Wild Irish and Wilder Irish series, you need to, you really do.
I love this family, their love, the closeness and strength and when they fall they fall hard and fast. The spinoff with the kids is just as wonderful as the origin series.
I'm never too sure of the office romance trope, sometimes there's a lot of drama, angst and nothing but sex. However, I should have known that Ms. Care wouldn't have done that, it was faced past, yes May had a lot going on in her life but it wasn
This book is going down as one that I read in one sitting. I literally could not put this book down, for any reason! It was so amazing, that as soon as I was done, I had to go back and read it again!

Lochlan Wallace is a driven man. With a little help from family, he has built his tech company from the ground up, into an international company. Now, the woman who helped him build it all, is leaving him. Despite begging and pleading on his part for her to stay, his admin assistant is retiring. In

And when Lochlan finds out that May's personal life is a complete mess, he decides that he will help her no matter what.

Mari Carr needs a standing ovation!!! I didn’t think anything could beat March Winds for me but this is a close second. Maybe it’s the name Patrick LOL.

Patrick “Lochlan” Wallace and May Flowers are the perfect couple. My favorite parts of the series are always with Pop Pop and how the books start off with Pop Pop and the grandchild then at the end with his wall of pictures (always gets me tearing up). The book had the perfect mix of dominant/submissive, romance, drama and always always always l

Book five in Wilder Irish series. Can be read and enjoyed as stand-alone. This is a spin off / next generation of the Wild Irish series. I love reading about the big Collins clan. Each story is about a different family member and their HEA. Lochlan has sworn to never marry or have the K word (kids). He is happy running his own company and making millions. How the mighty fall, or as the Collins family says the Collins curse as he goes into Viking protector mode for his assistant May. May is new t ...more

I loved reading May Flowers, Mari Carr’s latest Wilder Irish book. I have loved the Collins right from the beginning and I love that this author is writing these heartwarming and totally sexy stories of the next generation. I really enjoy the way the story begins with Pop Pop and baby Lochlan and then move to him as an adult. May Flowers’ introduction to Lochlan put a smile on my face and I loved the chemistry between them. Lochlan really showed his big Collins heart with the way he handled May’ ...more

Lochlan Wallace was everything I hoped he would be: smart, bossy, protective, and sure of his future - until a woman came along that knocked him off his axis. I loved the way Lochlan grew and changed throughout the book and was especially happy when his father, grandfather, and cousin were all able to impart some wisdom to help him find perspective on his relationship with May. I love the characters Mari Carr has created in her Wild Irish and Wilder Irish series and especially enjoy the close fa ...more

With it's contemporary genre and mild BDSM scenes, this book is beyond the scope of what I typically read/enjoy. However, I'm a sucker for those protective heroes, of which Lochlan was definitely one. It was also refreshing to read a book in which the hero falls first and hard for the heroine. Lochlan's willingness and determination to step up and take care of May and slay all her dragons for her was great and his family was wonderful too. I'd like to read their stories now, in fact. This was a ...more

I absolutely loved May Flowers. I immediately fell in love with Lochlan and May. Lochlan and May were wonderful together and complimented each other so well. Lochlan is definitely an alpha male and his protective side came out with May. Just makes you swoon. May has had so much going on in her life, she's so overwhelmed and Lochlan steps in to help. May Flowers was a wonderful book. I love this series.

I loved the little touches and inserts of all the different family members. I especially loved the scenes with Pat (Pop Pop) those we so sweet andjust kept with the traditions of the previous books.

The fifth book in the Wilder Irish brings something a bit difference.

Lochlan owns his own software company and like to be in charge & things done his way. His admin of many years finally decides to really retire & though Loch doesn't believe her, she hires her replacement - May Flowers.

The book like all the books in the Collins family is a delight with a lovely amount of heat and the required HEA. It gets a bit bumpy getting there but Loch & May finally make it happen.

Office romance with alpha boss trying to resist his young, sweet assistant and of course, BDSM. This was like a Harlequin Presents amped on steroids and I loved the crackycheesyness of it all.

Loch, our workaholic hero, is totally flustered when his former assistant hires a very young, very sweet, and very submissive PA named May Flowers. The cheekiness of the story cracks me up. Gotta love a hero who has ESP for submissiveness and a heroine who can carry off the name "May Flowers". May is also

Four and a half stars.

May Flowers by Mari Carr is part of her ongoing Wilder Irish series (a spinoff from the original Wild Irish series). Wilder Irish is the next generation of the Collins family, under the loving eye of patriarch Patrick Collins.

This is one is about Lochlan, who is unsettled and unhappy when his long-time assistant makes good on her promise to retire, leaving a newly hired, fresh-faced blonde beauty in her place. Lochlan has NEVER been a creepy boss and has no intention of dat

I'm a sucker for a romance. And if I'm being honest, generally the dirtier, the better haha. May Flowers did not disappoint on this front!

First of all: the title. I will admit that I thought the title was pretty silly at first. (The title is the name of the heroine.) Then I learned that it was part of a series and they all have silly month names (February Stars, April Fools), and that made me like the title a little more. (What can I say, I enjoy themes.) Also, the fact that heroine pokes fun at
Hot, hot, hot!!!!!! Unlike the weather this month in Baltimore, “May Flowers” is steamy hot. And in an irony, the lead female’s name is May Flowers. And this time around, we have Lochlan Collins in the Wilder clan to tame.

Lochlan is a big alpha male used to getting his own way. He is not happy with change so when his administrative assistant finally follows through on her threat to retire, Lochlan doesn’t believe she will actually do it. He thinks that if he gives her a pay increase or an extra
