IDLE BLOOM

IDLE BLOOM                                                JEWELE E. ANN

Idle Bloom"What lies beneath my veiled perfection is the ugly truth—my truth, my reality, my destiny."

Vivian Graham has an acceptance letter into Harvard, a badass tattoo, loyal friends, ties to marijuana, a penchant for Dunkin’ Donuts, and her pesky V-card. 

Everyday she takes the Red Line to her job at The Green Pot in Boston while her friends enter the coveted, black iron gates to higher learning. The ramifications from a tragic accident have put her life on hold while time marches on for everyone around her. 

After graduating from Harvard Law, Boston native, Oliver Konrad, moves to Portland to start his career and his life. Three years later, after a horrific discovery, he returns home to trade in his three-piece suit for leather work boots and his suburban home for a condo in Cambridge. 

All he brought back to the East Coast was an aversion to pillows and secrets he keeps hidden behind a mysterious locked door. Oliver’s days are predictable and his nights are lonely until he meets Vivian on the subway. Her long raven hair, green eyes, and mile-long legs are achingly sexy, but the way she "innocently" fingers and licks her Boston Kreme doughnut can only be described in two words—complete torture.

When their paths cross at every turn, laughter is abundant, friendship is easy, and love is unintentional. However, their future seems improbable.

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
Vivian Graham is working at a friend’s nursery who sells more than just plants. She also has a group of friends that are always looking out for her, but one friend that she grew up with turns out as the story goes along is really not a friend. She just didn’t realize it until later but he was responsible for the tragic event that put her life on hold after high school and just one reason she has not started at Harvard went. But with her money situation clearing up that is all going to change. One morning like every morning she stops by the doughnut shop for coffee and a Boston Kreme, her staple every day. Once she is on the Red Line she spots a good looking man and the next thing she knows her coffee is on his shirt. Embarrassed she leaves sooner than normal. He like every man is dying as they watch her eat that doughnut and realizes she does not know what she is doing to any of them but they at least didn’t have to pay for a porn movie, it’s just so early in the day. She then runs into him again at the nursery as he is working for his brother who does landscaping. They then find out at the end of the day that they live across the street from one another. He enjoys her company and her spirit but because she is younger than him he does not want to start anything. Of course that does not stop them and when he finds her scares he is the first man to accept her. He on the other hand has scares that you cannot see and it turns out to almost destroy him as well as her. When he finds out about her life he slowly reveals his life and why he is back in Boston, until one day when she finds out his secret and she forces him to go back to Seattle and deal with his past once and for all or they cannot have a future. When he goes back he is gone for months and she begins to think that he will never come back because he is scared with what he has to do, she tells him she can only wait for so long and continues with school. The ending of this book and really this whole book is really very good. The author makes you feel like you are right there with the characters and for the serious parts there are some really funny moments as well. I may not be doing a good job in describing this book, but it is a fantastic book. I got this book from net galley.  I give this 5 stars.
