Idle Bloom by Jewel E. Ann

"What lies beneath my veiled perfection is the ugly truth—my truth, my reality, my destiny." 

Vivian Graham has an acceptance letter into Harvard, a badass tattoo, loyal friends, ties to marijuana, a penchant for Dunkin’ Donuts, and her pesky V-card. 

Everyday she takes the Red Line to her job at The Green Pot in Boston while her friends enter the coveted, black iron gates to higher learning. The ramifications from a tragic accident have put her life on hold while time marches on for everyone around her. 

After graduating from Harvard Law, Boston native, Oliver Konrad, moves to Portland to start his career and his life. Three years later, after a horrific discovery, he returns home to trade in his three-piece suit for leather work boots and his suburban home for a condo in Cambridge. 

All he brought back to the East Coast was an aversion to pillows and secrets he keeps hidden behind a mysterious locked door. Oliver’s days are predictable and his nights are lonely until he meets Vivian on the subway. Her long raven hair, green eyes, and mile-long legs are achingly sexy, but the way she "innocently" fingers and licks her Boston Kreme doughnut can only be described in two words—complete torture. 

When their paths cross at every turn, laughter is abundant, friendship is easy, and love is unintentional. However, their future seems improbable. 

                                                      My opinion:
Vivian wanted to study at Harvard but she needed money so she was working at the Green Pot. She was taking the train everyday to her work, the fun part was that she was kind of playing a flirty peek a boo game with a man. One morning something embarrassing happened between them and she run off, the same day they were officially met. Later they found out that they were neighbours. They started talking and hanging out together. They both had a big secret that they weren't ready to reveal. At first that didn't bother either of them but as time went by, Oliver's issues were ruining his chances to be with Vivian. Thankfully he realised what would happen and made his move on her, best decision of his life. They were having so much fun and loved being with each other. Her best friend was trying to ruin her new relationship so she cut him off. Oliver was finding himself again because of Vivian. For one more time Oli let his past ruin his future. When she found out part of his secret he knew he had to tell her the whole truth. But even that wasn't enough to fix what was broken between them. Oli had to let his past behind and move forward. It took him a long time to have his closure. But he was lucky that the woman he loved  promised him to wait for him forever, and she did even though in the meantime he hadn't treated her very well.

It's a very sweet, funny and emotional story. The two main characters have a secret that keeps them from being happy and having a whole life. So when they're together they mend each others heart. They fall in love immediately. But because of her being a bit naive and his fears they had alot of problems.Luckily they have friends and family who help them see their mistakes. In the end Viv and Oli have their unique happily ever after. Now a few words about the characters: Vivian was a beautiful raven hair woman with long legs, a man's dream. She was also a geek who loved to read and dreamed to have a successful business. Oliver was a very sexy man and a great lawyer. They had an amazing chemistry and was fun to watch them fight and make up afterwards. I loved all the characters except from one.

My favourite lines:

1)I’m sure I won’t be the only guy disappointed that the 7:30 a.m. doughnut porn show has been cancelled.

2)“Besides, Chance is closer to my age. He’ll have more stamina to keep up with me when I ride him like it’s the Kentucky Derby.” 

3)“Whatever, you’re just being weird.”
  “I’m being a guy.”
  “That’s what I said. You’re being weird.”

4). “Are you mad?” I whisper in her ear.
  “I don’t get mad, I get even,” she says between gritted teeth.

5)“You’re right, you don’t need a man, Vivian. But life sure is a lot more fun with them.”
