Theodore and his cousin Rickey inherited their aunt's flower shop, Starflowers. They decide to run and improve it with their families' financial support. Starflowers gives Theodore's life meaning after a depressing breakup. Focusing on work is easy when he's absolutely sure there's no space for a man in his life. If he did allow for a boyfriend, it would be someone boring and everyday. Someone unlike the exotic Attila. He'd have a cubicle job, wear a cheap suit, and drive a Kia.
Sam Grey is a professional gambler who got caught counting cards one too many times, and consequences can be severe. He got beaten up, robbed, injured, and ends up homeless in Pittsburgh, living out of his Porsche. His temporary job helping with the Valentine's Day craze makes him yearn not only for the perky florist, but for a slower, friendlier way of life. When the shop runs into financial trouble, Sam's dangerous and exotic skills might be just the thing to help Theodore and show him he's not just a deadbeat moocher who's "just passing through."
