Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Forget everything good you've been told about love, because none of it's true.
You don't agree?
Spend a day in my shoes and you'd curse love too.
My name's Blue.
Yes, you read that right. Blue Daniels.
And I hate love.
I despise every single thing about it.
In my thirty-two years on this earth it has brought me nothing but heartbreak and disappointment.
Love is a void. Something we're taught we need if we want to live a happy and fulfilled life.
Well I disagree.
Some say I'm a cynic. Other's call me the smartest woman they've ever met.
But no matter what anyone says, I know what I need. And love is not it.
Enter Harris Avery.
A man who thinks he can have anyone he wants, including me.
A man who reminds me daily why I swore off love in the first place.
He walks around the office like he owns the place, throwing that sexy smirk of his at every female he passes. He thinks no one is immune to his charm.
But poor Mr. Avery has never met a girl like me before.
I'm more likely to throw myself off a bridge than at his feet.
There's just one problem…
He's decided to make it his mission to prove me wrong.
To that I say, let the games begin…
Violets are not Blue is a complete standalone.

Blue and Harris have some what of an unconventional love story. They work together, but Blue can't stand Harris or what he stands for. Harris has always like Blue from afar, but after making a crazy bet these two truly find out what each other is about. Blue is sassy and strong, but very stubborn. Harris was endearing. I loved his poems and his flowers and the way he went after what he wanted. The story was heartwarming and a good read.
I enjoyed this book. This enemies to lovers romance was very well written. I really liked Harris. He is hot, charming, flirty and quite the playboy until he firmly sets his sights on Blue. Then you see he is a very sweet, funny, determined and totally swoon worthy book boyfriend. I wish I could say that I loved Blue as much, but honestly, I just didn't. I felt for her and completely understood the walls she had around her badly battered and wounded heart. That being said, denile is not just a river in Egypt and I eventually grew tired of her anti-love mantra and her desperate need to distance herself from Harris. It was very frustrating and it made me feel just awful for Harris. Still, if you can get past that and stay focused on all the good things about this book, you'll find that this is a really good read.
Violets Are Not Blue is absolutely my favorite book that I’ve read by Melissa Toppen. This book was fun, witty, and sexy. Blue Daniels is a love cynic. She’s been burned by a man one too many times and no longer believe it’s in her future. Harris Avery is the office playboy who has set his sights on Blue. He wants to date her, she wants nothing to do with his womanizing ways. They make a bet that leads them to spending more time together. She finds out he’s not as bad as she thought. I loved the witty banter they threw back and forth. They had insane chemistry and Harris turned out to be really sweet and romantic. I highly recommend this story to everyone who enjoys well written, fun loving romance.
Blue does not believe in love and Harris is out to prove her wrong. The interactions between Blue and Harris was fun. I thought Harris was very personable. At times, the story seemed to drag a bit. Other than that, I enjoyed this story very much. Review copy w
