He’ll give her everything she desires...except his identity.Goodreads
Flower shop owner Alexa Conroy had it all before the recession hit and her customers fled to cheaper shopping grounds. Desperate to make ends meet, she sells her dream home and moves into the rundown apartments above her shop. When she spots six feet of sexy distraction—complete with muscles, piercings, and tattoos—ripping up flooring, Alexa knows the karmic windfall she’s due just landed on her doorstep.
And the attraction’s definitely not one-sided.
Dillon James, reluctant heir to the corporation about to foreclose on Alexa’s shop, is not about to jeopardize their scorching chemistry by admitting he’s not the building’s handyman. But with only weeks until her business goes under and his identity is revealed, Dillon must find a way to convince Alexa cooperation isn’t a dirty word, help her save the shop from his brother’s greed, and persuade her that he’s not the enemy...or risk losing the only woman who’s seen the real him.

I was given the opportunity to read and review a Cari Quinn book. I have read her books before and jumped at the opportunity to read her again. This is a sweet, sexy, soulful, and steamy stormy about a flower shop owner, Alexa Conroy and the sexy and adorable handyman, Dillon James. Dillon carries a secret.
Alexa has inherited a flower shop from her boss who passed away. After much searching, she has discovered that her boss was not good at keeping the books. Alexa had to downsize, selling her home, so she can keep the shop going. She has a love for flowers and wants to see the shop thrive. She ends of moving into an apartment above her shop. It’s small, dank and filled with problems. She goes in search for the handyman hoping he could fix her faucet in the bathroom.
Dillon James, the secret holding handyman, is fixing up the apartment building because he has a vision that the rental building his family owns can be environmentally friendly. He heads a charity called Helping Hands. This charity is near and dear to his heart. He has been a rebel in the family by dodging the responsibility of the family business to find himself. Nothing sexier than a tall, handsome sexy god riding a motorcycle and has a heart of gold.
Once Alexa and Dillon’s path cross, their lives will never be the same. Will the sexual chemistry bring them together or will Dillon’s secret destroy what he has created with Alexa. I enjoyed seeing them struggle with the challenges in their relationship and deciding if what they had was worth fighting for.
If you are a Cari Quinn fan like I am, run out and get your copy of No Flower's Required. Cari did a fabulous job of drawing you in with relate-able characters, that have issues just like the rest of us, and steamy chemistry that burns up the pages.
