Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway: Budding Attraction by Saxon James


Orson and Ford, I think they are my new favourite couple in the Divorced Men’s Club series.

I really liked these two men and I loved the connection they had between them. I enjoyed their friendship which became dates which became a relationship. Having met Orson before and knowing how sad he was about his wife’s loss, it was lovely to see him find someone who got him and someone he got. I loved how open he was to being with a man even though he’d never considered it before. There was one paragraph where he talks about being mad because it was just assumed he’d be with a woman and maybe things would have been different had he known that something else was a possibility and I knew exactly what he meant and wondered how many other people out there do too. His openness to trying new things with Ford because it felt right and good created some fun and sexy situations.

As with all the other books, their friendship group adds a nice dimension and I love how great they are about supporting each other. I really hope Art finds his HEA soon.



I’ve never thought much about Orson Naples.

He’s a cute guy who I’d seen around town a few times, but then one day he up and left and didn’t reappear until a few years later. No one knows where he went or what he was doing, all this gossipy town knows is that he’s a widower, owns the florist, and is friends with that divorced group that hang out at the Killer Brew all the time.

But then one day I step into his flower shop and go from rarely thinking about him, to him constantly being on my mind.

There’s a restlessness to him that I’m dying to unlock answers to.

And his eyes linger on me a little too long for a straight man …


Ford Thomas is a pest. A delightful one. A tempting one. But I’m too old for games.

The ones I’ve played in the past have always led me to trouble which is why I vowed to settle down and live a quiet life.

So when Ford walks into my shop all uncontained energy and flirty quips in a pair of heavy work boots, I know I should show him the door.

I don’t need fun. I don’t need experiences.

Especially when those experiences have me questioning things I thought I knew about myself.
