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.

As 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.

Book Review:

This was nothing short of brilliant. Hothouse Flower finally gave us the story we all have been waiting for. Daisy and Ryke and their forbidden love. But she's all grown up now so the "forbidden" part is going out the window... I cannot explain how hot this book is!

Everyone of the six are messed up. We already saw what is going on with Connor and Rose and with Lo and LIlly. Now it's time for Daisy and Ryke. Daisy is a eighteen year old which family scandals led her to hit rock bottom and Ryke has a mother who betrayed him and is in love with someone he cannot have. This is just begging for trouble!
I'm raw. 
I'm hard. 
I'm the thing you shy away from. 
So I'm warning you now. Back away. 
Because once you enter my life, I wonâ't ever let you leave.
 Ryke is so intense all the time and doesn't like to leave anything unsaid. He's fierce and determined with his career and in letting no one harming the girl he adores. He's a character that has a lot give yet and that we cannot grow tired of... I admired to see his dedication to Daisy and in making sure he never lied to his brother and always supported him. We also see him trying to come to terms with what's going on with his father being accused of mistreating Lo and if he will defend him or accuse him as everyone else. And his relationship with Daisy... Let's just say that intense doesn't begin to explain it. And there will be a lot of mindblowing sex in bikes, rooms, hospital beds and etc...
There's no way I'm with her out of circumstance. 
We chose this because nothing else felt right. 
Nothing else felt as good. 
Our greatest happiness has always been with each other.

This is a book that will open Daisy's eyes and make her go after what she truly wants and we already knew that it wasn't fashion. I loved this girl from day one... Her impulsiveness and her wildness. She's awesome but she also depressed since that photographer entered her room and since her friends turned on her. So we see her in some really low points that only Ryke can help with. There is also a new side of Daisy that we never seen. The sadness that she carries. She's never wants to bother people with her problems and she was always fine with that but now we see how she would really react to not letting her problems out. Daisy is definitely a character that will always surprise us and makes us laugh with lame pick up lanes and provocative t-shirts. 
Ryke Meadows has invigorated my body and soul. 
He is more than just my pillow. 
My wolf. 
My bodyguard. 
He's my everything.
Yes!! LIlly and LO! You will not believe the bumpy road ahead of Lilly and LO. It's sad one minute with Lo's relapsing and drinking and happy the next when they are together... Yes, unfortunately we will see Lo relapsing because of all the tabloids stating that he was abused by his father, but also get to see that he has all the support in the world to help him get through it. And Lilly?. She has a secret this time that blows up in the last chapters... But you have to read it to believe it!

Rose and Connor are on fire. They maintain this fight throughout the whole book to see who's the last man standing and it's freaking adorable. I know that they should not be described as adorable, but they are. In this book Rose is moody as hell because of another secret and she and Lo are going to explode sooner or later, so just wait for it... And Connor is more humble than never!!! NOT. Love. Love. Love the chemistry between these two and all the changes Hothouse Flower will bring them.
"Not according to the smartest guy in the goddamn room." 
"The world" Connor corrects him, hiding his anger from my brother. "Being smarter than the three of you really isn't that big of an achievement." He pauses. "No offense." 
"I'm fucking offended," I retort. 
"Oh, sorry," he says flatly. "I don't really care about your feelings." 
 Lo shoots us a look. "Now's not the time for you both to go at it."
Oh parents... Always screwing up thinking about what's best for your kids... If Samantha was real i was going to kill that woman!! And what i really loved? Greg and Jonathan are going to shine a bit and actually prove that they are good guys... AS hard as it seems, Jonathan will redeem himself a little. 

Hothouse Flower is a dream. A wonderfull dream filled with Bumpy Roads, Motorcycle rides, Tents and Hotel Rooms, Fights and Sex that will blow our minds. It's reckless and intense and so amazing.
