Overview

After leading Hampton Heights to three, consecutive gardening championships, Katrina Jones has been rightfully dubbed her city's reigning gardening queen. A crown she wears well... that is, until the new kid on the block arrives. Will Nakene's unique, eco-friendly practices have made him a force to be reckoned with in the gardening world. So when the committee taps Will for the upcoming competition, Katrina's assistance and expertise is required to make sure he's ready.

Katrina is finding it difficult and awkward to tote the line of professionalism with Will, especially after she tried to put her womanly charms on him at a recent New Year's Eve party, quite unsuccessfully. However, the more time they spend together, the more they both realize how hard it is to truly fight their growing romantic feelings. With Katrina's childhood littered with abandonment, insecurity, and loneliness, she finds it hard to give herself to him fully. Through compassion, determination and love, it's up to Will to show Katrina that true love can steady any storm.

The story was nice, i'm just upset about having to follow a gardening competition for more than 80% of the book, only to have the story end without telling me who won the FRACKING competiton. Sorry to leak that bit of info, but the author was wrong for that. ALSO......it seemed like the ending was rushed. The author trys to sum up everyones happy ending on one page, and just really misses the mark. I give it 3 stars because I had to imagine my own ending to this story.

This was pretty good read. What I did enjoy about this story Ms. Robinson took that time for the characters to develop a relationship and then fall in love. You find this less and less in the romance books today.

I loved both characters. Katrina would say one thing when she meant something else; she spent a lot of time contradicting herself. She was shy, but she was bold, she was reserved, but totally wild. By having Katrina's contradictions in the story it worked. It gave this woman who, although dealing with issues, was wild without being unlikeable, and reserved without being a boring. Then there's Will, who is definitely the highlight of the story. I loved the fact that the hero was Asian American. Too often Asian men are emasculated in the media and are not seen as real men or even desirable mates. Will was amazing, and he was funny, he was witty, and he was compassionate and athletic without falling into the martial arts stereotype. I feel that this author did a great job of developing her characters; it was easy to identify with them, even Katrina as she works hard to overcome her fears. The relationship was slow and well developed. As someone who hates, "love at first sight romances", it was refreshing to have a guy meet a girl who was not gorgeous. Although Will himself was gorgeous, he was down-to-earth enough to see past Katrina's walls to the beautiful person within. I would have to say that this is one author that I will be adding to my list of author to keep an eye out for their work.
