Tom Hannity is not boring, despite what his ex-boyfriend says. He loves his circle of family and friends and finds peace in the beauty of flower arranging. Still stinging from his recent breakup, Tom attends an Anti-Valentine’s Day “Ex-orcism,” hoping for some fun and forgetfulness.
Mario Tellez is tired of party boys, and he’s had his eye on Tom for a while. When they run into each other at the Ex-orcism, sparks fly, until an accidentally overheard conversation drives Tom to do something he normally doesn’t do.
What should have been a hot and fun night turns into Tom and Mario seeing each other at their absolute worst, although surprisingly, it brings out the best in them, too. Navigating around the toxic people in their lives isn’t easy, and after a small series of bumps in the road, they finally come around full circle… to Valentine’s Day and laying old demons to rest.
4.5 Stars!!! It’s Time for a Valentine’s Day “Ex-orcism” –
This was a really cute book based on Valentine’s Day and moving on from our Ex’s! What’s the best way to get over someone? Well some Say it’s to Get Under someone new…other’s say it’s by “ex-orcising” that person from your life!
Tom is single on Valentine’s Day – what’s worse he can’t even hide and ignore the “holiday” because he works in his sisters floral shop. After a day of making love filled flower arrangements Tom attends an “Anti-Valentine’s Day” party where the guests are going to “exorcise” their ex’s from their lives … And get really drunk while doing it!!
Tom walks up and overhears himself as the topic of a conversation at this party ..while most are calling him boring and snobby, one voice is standing up for him. Come to find out, that voice belongs to Mario. Mario is looking for love and sick of being in relationships with party guys and drama queens. He thinks Tom looks like the perfect relationship material and wants to get to know him better. However, that has to wait because Tom is blitzed and when he does a sober up the next say, Mario is sick as a dog.
Their one night together turns into a few nights – however the only action either of them get is Tom taking care of Mario while he has the flu. After Mario starts to feel a bit better, he heads home with a promise to call Tom so they can have an actual date.
Tom is excited about the chance to get to know Mario, but he gives up when after 3 weeks he hasn’t heard from Mario. That is until one day when Tom is “making” a flower arrangement with a little too much force, guess who walks into the flower shop…Mario!
Will these two ever get their beginning or is their relationship doomed before it even gets started? Check out this quick fun read to find out!!
