Release Blitz with Review: The Confidence Of Wildflowers by Micalea Smeltzer

March 23, 2022


The Confidence of Wildflowers
by Micalea Smeltzer is live!

My future is a big 'what if' at the moment and I'm fine with that.
For the most part.
When Thayer Holmes moves in next door, the grumpy landscaper both fascinates and amuses me.
When he asks me to nanny his kid, it's a great way to make some extra money.
It's impossible not to fall in love with Thayer and his adorable son.
There's a big problem though.
I'm eighteen. He's thirty-one.
Falling for someone almost fifteen years older than me wasn't part of my plans, but sometimes things happen when you least expect them.

I should've known better than to think that this was going to be a smooth light read.

I should've heed the warning in my brain that somewhere along the line, I'm going to get my heart bruised.

I should've braced for impact and put my emotions and my freakin heart in a bubble wrap like I wanted to do all along.





Now I'm paying the price of that and the only thing that can make me feel better in this moment is to get me book two right now!!! The Confidence Of Wildflowers is not your typical forbidden steamy romance. This was the story about two people who found the best in each other and decided that they were worth it. Their past didn't matter and in their own way, they helped each other healed. This was a slow burn addictive story that showed you all of the sides to loving and being in love with someone that you didn't see coming. It heartwarming, sweet, sexy, charming and when you least expected it, it tugged on your heartstrings and made you appreciate life even more.


Thayer and Salem’s relationship started out as this professional neighbor relationship that grew into friendship and slowly turned into something more. It was unexpected and slow moving but their attraction was explosive and you felt it when they were close to each other. But with an age gap and Thayer being a newly divorced single dad, what does that mean for their future relationship? Will they finally give into Temptation?


I really went into this story thinking that it was going to be a nice steamy read with a few hiccups along the way and I have to say that I’m so glad that I was wrong. This turned out to be so much more and aside from that gut punch that I’m still feeling and not having this told in dual pov, I enjoyed it. I’m going to be on pins and needles waiting for the final book because not only do we need answers from that cliffhanger, I need an HEA for my sanity!

If you haven't read anything from this author yet, I highly recommend that you start right now!!!!
