Hi everyone! So excited to be here today to share three songs I listened to a lot while writing NO FLOWERS REQUIRED, Love Required book 2. They’re emotional and some are 80’s throwbacks, because c’mon the 80’s rocked!
1. The first is Stay The Night by Benjamin Orr. I love this man’s voice so much, and this song fit Dillon’s need for Alexa to stick around one more night.
2. The next is I Can Dream About You by Dan Hartman, because Dillon and Alexa definitely did some dreaming – and fantasizing – about each other. And the longing in this song comes through loud and clear!
3. And in 2012, you couldn’t take a step without hearing Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen. The fun hopeful beat of the song definitely fit Alexa’s feelings as she hoped Dillon would make that first move…which he did in a very interesting way! 😉

Flower shop owner Alexa Conroy had it all before the recession hit and her customers fled to cheaper shopping grounds. Desperate to make ends meet, she sells her dream home and moves into the rundown apartments above her shop. When she spots six feet of sexy distraction—complete with muscles, piercings, and tattoos—ripping up flooring, Alexa knows the karmic windfall she’s due just landed on her doorstep.
And the attraction’s definitely not one-sided.
Dillon James, reluctant heir to the corporation about to foreclose on Alexa’s shop, is not about to jeopardize their scorching chemistry by admitting he’s not the building’s handyman. But with only weeks until her business goes under and his identity is revealed, Dillon must find a way to convince Alexa cooperation isn’t a dirty word, help her save the shop from his brother’s greed, and persuade her that he’s not the enemy…or risk losing the only woman who’s seen the real him.
USA Today bestselling author Cari Quinn wrote her first story – a bible parable – in 2nd grade, much to the delight of the nuns at her Catholic school. Once she saw the warm reception that first tale garnered, she was hooked. Now she gets to pen sexy romances for a living and routinely counts her lucky stars. When she’s not scribbling furiously, she can usually be found watching men’s college basketball, playing her music way too loud or causing trouble. Sometimes simultaneously.
