This review is about the contribution by Melanie Moreland.

 When Love Blooms 


Ethan found himself in Lily’s flower shop one day in search of the perfect gift for his mom. Looking at Lily, a carefree and spirited woman, he realized that all his work and money won’t give him the inner light that Lily had in surplus.

Recently cheated on by his former girlfriend, Ethan astonishingly blurted everything out, and told Lily what had happened. Lily, strong but sensitive, listened and appreciated him for the person he was. Even so they were polar opposites, they connected on a physical level that surpassed everything both had ever experienced before.

In the following days Ethan found one ridiculous reason after another to buy flowers. Indeed he bought so many flowers in such a short amount of time that even American Express called to let him know about possible fraud. 😀

This novella, was utterly adorable. 

When Love Blooms was a vibrant and carefree novella about second chances, about falling in love at first sight, and finding the right person when you least expect it.

Since LOVE HAPPENS is a anthology of 15 novellas, each novella isn’t that long. I think it took me 30 min max to read When Love Blooms but OMG – I was smiling the entire time. If all the other stories in this book are as sweet and cute as When Love Blooms by Melanie Moreland it will be a overload of cuteness – perfect for bus rides and lunch breaks.:D
