FORGET ME NOT                                  CRYSTAL B. BRIGHT

Roses are red, violets are blue.

Only one woman could make NFL star Gideon Wells walk away from the Super Bowl: His Mama, "Queen" Elizabeth, the beautiful, strong black woman who adopted him and his two white brothers when they were just kids. So when Elizabeth develops a pressing health issue, Gideon doesn’t hesitate to come home and run the flower shop she loves almost as much as her boys. But there’s an unexpected complication in Queen Elizabeth’s shop: and that complication looks really good in a gardener’s apron and pruning gloves. 

This mama’s boy has a naughty side too.

Janelle Gold has always thought of herself as a geek, more into books than sports, preferring brains over brawn. So a gorgeous jock like Gideon Wells is not exactly the type she usually goes for. But there’s something about the hot quarterback that makes Janelle think sometimes opposites do attract, and it’s not just his dedication to his family, or the fact that he can hold his own in the flower shop. There’s just something irresistible about a man who stops to smell the roses.

This the second book and it begins with Gideon being the starting quarterback in the super bowl and after he completes the last play for the winning score he gets a call about his mother Queenie being in the hospital. He leaves without going to any of the celebrations to go home to be with his mother. She adopted him and his two brothers. He is the middle son. The story mostly is around the floral shop that she owns and asks him to help run while she is laid up. This is where he meets Janelle Gold who also owns a floral shop. The first encounter she is not very nice to him when he asks a favor. After a few more times meeting and talking she warms up to him but at the same time she is guarded and not trusting. When she asks him to look at himself which he does towards her and a friend of his from the team that is mad, neither of them are looking at themselves. The change does not take place until the end of the story but to get to that point is a very interesting story and very intriguing with the merging of personalities. Another good story and very romantic. I got this book from netgalley.  I gave this book 4 stars.
