Loved this Adorable story by Susan Meier. The characters were well developed and their journey was sweet, sexy and so much fun to to watch develop. I enjoyed the witty banter as well as the sweet and tender moments that they shared and the family bond of togetherness that was created with the Donovan Family. Could not put this down and I read until the wee hours of the morning to finish.
Isabelle or "Izzy" or "Belle" has had a crush on Devon Donovan since she was fourteen. So when she is informed by her parents that they sold " Buds and Blossoms" to Donovan's Inc. and a job for her is also part of the deal, she finds herself in a very uncomfortable and unexpected situation. But she discovers that as long as she focuses on work she can show Devon what an intelligent, capable, business woman she can be. But is that what she really wants, to just be his employee? Not with the way she feels about this tall, dark, brooding, handsome, sexy hunk of a man. So she enlists the help of her long time friends and shows up to work after a complete make over.
Devon Donovan has always been the one to protect and take care of everybody else in his family, especially from his abusive father. He also started Donovan's Inc. when they received their grandfather money and has been busy working to make sure the family will be secure financially in the future. That is why buying the flower shop from the Coopers was a good investment he not only got a business but he also got a, go to girl to help manage their fortune in Izzy with her MBA. But he didn't count on the way that Izzy or Belle had grown up into a beautiful, capable, smart, sexy woman. But he doesn't date or have relationships, he has sex and definitely not with an employee. Or does he?
Will Belle catch Devon's eye with her make over? Will Devon want more with Belle? Will he realize that they are made for each other? You will have to read this to find out. Loved it! Highly Recommend!

This is book # 3 in The Donovan Brother series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading in order.
Isabelle has known Devon most of her life. She has had a crush on him for at least a decade. Can she work for the man who turned her down?
Devon wants to hire someone who has knowledge, and Izzy has an MBA. He wants her to use it to help his family's fortune grow properly. He has also noticed her as a woman. She is all grown up!
Very sweet and yet hot story. The sparks sizzle and fly off the page. The humor is good too. I like that the characters like to laugh together. Was a good read.

Sweet and sexy!!!
Isabelle he had a crush on Devon since she was in high school and he had just returned from Afghanistan. Now she's 26, working for him and still has a crush. Only this time he wants her too but he doesn't do love or commitment. He only does affairs. Can they keep their affair separate from work? Will he ever take a chance on love before it's too late?
Fabulous story! The story flowed smoothly and character growth was steady. I really liked how there was no "instant" love. It took Isabelle a couple of months to figure out her feelings ran deeper than they should. One thing I didn't like was at LuAnn's wedding, when there was no seat assigned for Isabelle, I thought that was cruel for a family who supposedly thought of her as part of it and she was hurt by it. And what was up with Barbara Beth dancing with Devon all night at the wedding? Devon and his bright ideas! He really had no clue. This was a sweet and often funny romance with a tragic background story for the Donovan family. The Donovan Brothers series is fantastic!
