The man I hate might be the first one to pluck my petals…

Confession: I, Dandelion “Dani” Wright, am twenty-six years old and have yet to be deflowered. No man has hosed my hyacinth. Fondled my freesia. Diddled my daffodil.

You get the point.

My excuse?

I was too busy running my family’s flower shop and winning floral design competitions.

Suddenly that whole pesky virginity t

A brand new romance incorporating two characters that have a past that brings them together in the present for the best of ways...

Okay... but okay... Oh my god! I am so excited to actually write this review! This novel is one of those books that you were expecting something light and fun to enjoy, and when you start reading it and it makes you laugh out loud, you just KNOW that this is an IT novel. Iris Morland is a new author for me and I am beyond glad that I gave her a chance. This novel,

Petal Plucker is a FUN, quirky, refreshing, and HILARIOUS read. I loved this book to pieces! I read it non stop in one sitting because of how much I was enjoying it! This is my first read from the amazing Iris Morland and it certainly won't be my last. I am anxiously awaiting her next release in the series (I know it's going to be just as fantastic as this one).

Not only is Petal Plucker absolutely hilarious, but the ch
3.5 stars

Petal Plucker was a fun, flirty and steamy read perfect for springtime—it was all about the plants and buds and blooms in this one. Although as much as it had its highs, it also had its lows. I ended up feeling torn over this because it honestly had a promising start for me. The story had so much potential. And don’t get me wrong, there were moments that did make me laugh and snort a little—those plant metaphors were seriously witty and hilarious—and some that even made me go aww. I w

"I get that. Sometimes it's hardest to admit the truth to yourself, let alone to people you love."

Humorous, raunchy, and refreshing. Petal Plucker has rightfully earned its way,in my opinion, as one of the best romantic comedy book this year, with all the right reasons. This is a second-chance friends-to-lovers story between two people who got reacquainted after almost a decade apart. As I was reading this, I could imagine a movie playing out in my head.

This was my first book by the author and will not be the last. This was a super cute, and absolutely hilarious romantic comedy! It’s the first in a series about three sisters. This one is about Dandelion (Dani) and her childhood crush, Jacob. She runs her family’s flower shop and he has come back into town to run his parent’s flower shop. It was a bit like Romeo and Juliet with florists! The parents had a big rivalry, that the kids really didn’t play into. It’s all from Dani’s POV with some of h ...more

*happy sigh* I’m in romantic comedy heaven. I’m bursting with so many happy feelings. From start to finish this book hooked me and had me laughing nonstop and smiling so big. I couldn’t get enough of everything this book offered. I’ve already gone back and read my favorite parts, but honestly who am I kidding, the whole book is my favorite.

I really enjoyed this sexy and fun romantic comedy from new-to-me-author Iris Morland. Full rec on Frolic to follow soon.

My holy grail of romance novels is sweet but sexy, one that brings on the feels as well as the steam. Petal Plucker is a holy grail romance! 😍

Dandelion (Dani) Wright runs her family’s Seattle flower shop, Buds and Blossoms. She finds herself in the awkward position of having a vase stuck on her hand one day when the one who got away, Jacob West, walks into her shop and back into her life.

Dani and Jacob have history. They grew up as childhood friends and Dani has always crushed on Jacob from afar

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Boys who stand girls up for prom should end up with a beer gut, a large hairy mole on their face, and a distinct body odor that no deodorant could eradicate. It was only fair.

I had been wanting a light and fun novel to read. I got that along with full on laugh out loud moments from beginning to end! First

In Iris Morland I've found a new go-to author. Petal Plucker is an amazing read that I can't recommend enough. In Dandelion Wright and Jacob West we get a love story built on unrealized childhood crushes, and an enemies (family grievances) to much more love story, and ultimately a story about taking chances and forgiveness.

When Jacob returns home to help his family run their flowers store, he and Dani begin to find themselves u each others company, and the effects are glorious. As Dani recounts

I'm sitting here thinking how to rate this book. It has as much of likes as it does the dislikes. Let's start with what bothered me; I just couldn't for the love of me love Jacob. I mean his apologies were weak and Dani kinda just accepted them without so much of a fuss. I understood why he did (well not the first one) what he did but still...

Now to the likes: I loved the banter, the side characters (Kevin being my favorite of them all), the plot was interesting but had a lot of room to grow

Petal Plucker was one of the BEST romantic comedies I've read in a long while. It was such a fun and steamy read that I never wanted to end!!! Iris is an author to watch out for because she will make you fall in love with her characters just as I did. 💛 I can't wait to read the rest of the sisters' stories!!!

This author won me over when I discovered her book titles were taken from classic songs. Whenever I read her books, I know I’ll get a fun, light-hearted romance with a side of steam, but Morland has bested herself phenomenally with the first book in The Flower Shop Sisters Series! Floral puns, euphemisms and innuendo aside, this book is just so much MORE. I’m a bit over the well-used virgin trope, but Morland had me eating out of her hand with Dani and Jacob's frenemies to lovers romance with a ...more

‘Petal Plucker’ is the first book that I have read by Iris Morland, and I absolutely adored it. I was hooked from the first page and could not put it down for love nor money. It was utterly addictive and I was always wanting more.

From the moment Jacob West walked into Buds and Blossoms, and rescued Dandelion Wright from having her hand stuck in a vase, I was immersed, completely hooked and non-stop page turning. Their story is a combination of everything; from friends to lovers, to sworn enemies

Dandelion’s (Dani) family has owned the flower shop Buds and Blooms for as long as she can remember and now that she is an adult it is not only her career but her passion as well. When she was five years old Jacob’s family not only moved into the neighborhood, but they opened a competing flower shop as well. Although their families were enemies Dani and Jacob became friends but that changed when he agreed to be her date to the prom and then stood her up and they haven’t spoken since.

Overall this was a good read. Dani and Jacob grew up together. Of course Dani has been in love with him on and off her whole life. When he comes back to town they start spending time together. It would have been better if Dani wasn't so high and mighty. She could mess up but nobody else could. that bugged me. However, they got it all worked out in the end. I did like her sisters so I look forward to reading their stories next.

4* Second Chance Love Stars

This is a wonderful funny and sexy second chance friends to lovers story. It was well written and the story flowed well making it quite a quick read. I really enjoyed the banter between Dani and Jacob and their chemistry was undeniable. It was also refreshing to read a love story set in and around 2 flower shops.

I highly recommend this delightful love story especially if you are looking for a sexy low angst love story.

Given the fact that I have read and enjoyed other books by Iris Morland, I thought the synopsis sounded like a fun romance. Sadly, though I have to say the blurb was better than the story. I simply could not connect with the characters and honestly I think the lead in for the next book was one of the best parts of the story.

This wasn’t like her other books I’ve read and I was a bit disappointed in it. Pretty much skipped all of “bedroom” parts because eh I wanted to know more about her flower business. Hopefully the second book is better.

Petal Plucker was such a refreshing rom-com, and set in the floral industry with a hint of Romeo and Juliet family rivalry?? Yes please! Dandelion (aka Dani) is a 26 year old virgin who runs her family’s flower shop and has only ever had feelings for one boy, who happens to be the son of her family’s rivals. Dani never thought she would see Jacob again after he burned her on prom night, until he walks back into her flower shop years later. This story is built on childhood crushes, the flashbacks ...more

This is the first book I’ve read by Iris Morland and I thought I knew what to expect when I picked it up - a sort-of friends to lovers, sort-of enemies to lovers romantic comedy with a virgin heroine.

And while you do get all that - that’s really selling it short. For me, this is the story of Dani as she comes to realise that what she has, and who she is, is more than enough to fall in love and have someone fall in love with her in return. And not just any someone
