“Lennox spoke to a part of me that no man ever had.” —Magnolia

Magnolia Baker could be considered the matriarch of her four younger sisters. They’ve endured tragedy and heartbreak together, with Magnolia protecting them no matter the cost. Her heart was made of solid gold and under lock and key. Shielding the part of her that had been broken by the one man who should have guarded it with his life is a top priority for Magnolia. No one has ever been able to penetrate the barrier until a smooth-talking, college English professor by the name of Lennox Clarke steps in to take a shot.

Does Lennox have what it takes to secure the key to Magnolia’s heart or will his efforts be all for nothing?

*Please note, this is book one of a five-part interconnected series. Though each book can be read as a standalone, some parts of the storyline are ongoing.

Asia Monique has quickly become a favorite author of mine. When I read a book of hers, I know I’ll have a solid storyline, crack a smile or two, and meet a guy I wish lived in my neighborhood. Her work just makes you feel good, and I like that a lot.

Her latest series is no different. We meet the Flower sisters, 5 women who are all named after a particular flower: Magnolia, Lilac, Daisy, Blossom, and Juniper.

Magnolia is up first – the oldest of five, she has always been a mother figure of sorts to her older sisters. She has a “friend” Lennox – who is definitely more than friend material. Magnolia is hesitant when it comes to relationships – always leaving before things got too serious but the tide is about to turn.

She’s a runner, and we can attribute that to her relationship (or lack thereof) with her father, and she and her sisters remained intact after tragedy. However, she soon find that with Lennox, the only place she’ll want to run is into his arms.

Lennox is definitely a keeper. He is extremely patient and considerate. Magnolia’s love language is words of affirmation and he definitely knows to make sure she gets what she needs.

There are some family issues that both characters must deal with, but instead of it pushing them away from each other or deciding that it wasn’t the time for a relationship – they allow it to bring them closer.

Aside from the love story, I must say that I really enjoyed the sisterhood aspect of this story. These sisters have a really tight-knit bond and distinctive personalities and I’m excited to see each of them fall in love.

I’ll be back in a bit with thoughts on Lilac’s story!
