My thanks to Rachel's Random Resources for my copy of the book
and the invitation to the blog tour
Dean Baxter was everything a sensible thirty-two-year-old teacher should avoid. Five years younger, cocky, with a playboy reputation. Oh and guardian to Tom, one of her most promising students. But Lia was a rebel at heart.
Lia Stapleton was everything that was out of reach for an uneducated garage mechanic who’d made too many mistakes. Cambridge-educated, gorgeous and from a well-heeled background, she was his brother’s teacher. But Dean couldn’t resist her.
As Dean and Lia’s tentative relationship begins, can it survive Tom’s disapproval, her parents’ interference. And the dangerous return of his past.
📖 My Review..
When Lia Stapleton is rescued by Dean Baxter her instinct is to keep well away from the playboy car mechanic but Dean's good natured charm and obvious sex appeal soon proves to be too irresistible. Always a rebel, Lia decides to follow her heart not her head and soon gets involved in everything about Dean's life, including his somewhat shady past. With passion sizzling on every page there is also a hint of danger especially when we learn more about Dean's past and how Lia copes with this different side to the kind and caring man she is beginning to get to know.
Yellow is for Sunflowers is one of those wonderful romantic stories which this author writes so well. With pitch perfect characterisation, I just loved Lia's outgoing nature, and who could resist the appeal of Dean, who really doesn't know what hit him when he met Lia for the first time. Throughout the book this warm hearted romance just zings with sexual passion and yet interestingly there is also more than a hint of danger and intrigue. Once I started reading Yellow is for Sunflowers I found it difficult to put it down and read the story in one sitting, it's definitely escapism with a capital E and works beautifully on every level.
Another triumph for this talented author.
🍴Best read with...Dean's shepherd's pie
About the Author
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to write a book. It may have had something to do with my obsession with reading romance. Real life interfered and I headed off in a different direction – into the world of science, becoming a pharmacist before joining the pharmaceutical industry. I did end up writing, but it was about disease and medicines. Decades later, I’m finally doing what I always wanted to do.
With a husband who asks every Valentine's Day whether he has to buy a card (yes, he does), all the romance in my life is in my head. Then again, his unstinting support of my career change proves love isn't always about hearts and flowers - and heroes come in many disguises.
