Friends To Lovers (Aisle Bound #3) by Christi Barth
A Chicago florist struggles with revealing her longtime lust for a hotel manager lothario who’s about to be shipped back to England.
For years, wedding florist Daphne Lovell harbored a secret crush on one of her best friends. When the lights go out in a hotel ballroom, she seizes the opportunity to kiss him senseless. It works, but too well. He searches the room, trying to find the mystery pair of lips. Only… he never thinks to ask the woman standing by his side.
Gibson Moore’s friends joke that he manages a hotel so he always has a fresh batch of women to hit on. The lothario Brit doesn’t discount that perk of his job. But he’s ready to halt the cavalcade of women if only he can find the one who kisses like a dream. Why is it his friend Daphne refuses to help him with the search?
Life gets upended when Gib’s hotel is sold, and the new company refuses to let an Englishman manage their American hotel. Should he scramble to stay in Chicago? Or take the dream job offered to him back in London, a place he’d sworn never to return? Daphne gets chosen to compete in a reality television flower show that could lead to her exit from the Windy City. Will they go their separate ways, or let their burgeoning love bloom?
