REVIEW : Violets are not Blue by Melissa Toppen

October 31, 2019

blurb

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…


You know what they say about a chase. And I have no doubt this woman would give me a run for my money.


my review

This is the first book I’ve read by Melissa Toppen and it will not be my last. I can’t even begin to express how much I loved this story.

Blue has been hurt in the past when it comes to relationships and love, she doesn’t believe in it. Harris seems like a playboy but he just wants one woman and that is Blue, the one person who doesn’t want him. However, they make a bet and after the month will things change for them?

I LOVED Harris. Seriously, that man is a romantic at heart. How could you not fall in love with him? The flowers, the poems and pretty much every little thing he did. Blue, I had mixed feelings about. I felt for her because of her past, but at the same time I was yelling at her telling her to just give into her feelings and her emotions when it came to Harris. There is no denying these two had chemistry and it was explosive at times.

Violets are not Blue is a sweet, hate to love office romance that will have you falling in love with these characters.
