Ryke Meadows, meet Daisy Calloway . . . she’s all grown up. 

Twenty-five-year-old Ryke Meadows knows he’s hard to love. With a billion-dollar inheritance, a track-star resume, and an alpha-male personality—he redefines the term likable asshole. But he’s not living to make friends. Or enemies. He just wants to free climb three of the toughest mountains in Yosemite without drama or interruption. And then he receives a distressed call from a girl in Paris—a girl that he has never been allowed to have.

Daisy Calloway is eighteen. Finally. With her newfound independence, she can say goodbye to her overbearing mother and continue her modeling career. Next stop, Paris. Fashion Week begins with a bang, and Daisy uncovers the ugly reality of the industry. She wants to prove to her family that she can live on her own, but when everything spirals out of control, she turns to Ryke to keep her secrets.

Daisy struggles to make sense of this new world and her freedom, she pushes the limits and fearlessly rides the edge. Ryke knows there’s deep hurt beneath every impulsive action. He must keep up with Daisy, and if he lets her go, her favorite motto—“live as if you’ll die today”—may just come true.
I don't even know how I'm going to review Hothouse Flower because
I'm not capable of coherent thoughts right now and it's hard not to spoil anything. So I'm sorry in advance for my ramblings but this book was pure awesomeness. Here goes . . .

We all knew going into Hothouse Flower, that nothing was going to be easy. Choices were going to be made. Obstacles were going to be thrown. But could Daisy and Ryke overcome them? Would Ryke get the girl without hurting his brother. Could Daisy break free from the chains holding her down?

Ryke and Daisy have been friends. Nothing more, nothing less. They've always maintained a distance and all that blows up beautifully. I loved getting to know these characters again. Loved getting in their heads and knowing exactly what they felt. I loved seeing them go through obstacles together. Loved watching them cope without each other. Loved seeing them give each other strength. BASICALLY I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT RYKE AND DAISY TOGETHER!

I just wanted to hug Daisy while reading her story. She's been through so much that you can't help but feel her pain/struggles. But when something life changing happens it makes her want to live her life differently. And I was so proud of her when that change happened.

 I've never seen Ryke the way I do now. He's had the weight of the world on his shoulders and it was amazing watching him slowly chip it away; especially with a certain someone by his side. And all those f bombs thrown out there, yeah I lost count after the first page.

And don't even get me started on the side characters. CONNOR! He's the best!
I want to have his babies.

Oh and before I forgot, here's one of my favorite quotes from the book: "You just have to move fucking forward. Don't worry about what people think."

Hothouse Flower is more than anything I could have hoped for. Its about Daisy and Ryke facing the impossible when all seems lost. It shows how two people can come together in spit of everything that's pushed them in opposite directions. Thank you Krista and Becca for writing their story, I couldn't be happier!
