review

Gilded Lily was a sexy hot short read! This book has cheating and a huge cliffhanger. I am so glad I had book two to read right after, but now I can’t wait until book three. I like trilogies but always hope that the author doesn’t spread out the release of each book. I was hooked on Lily’s adventure from the beginning. I just wanted her to find happiness after her finance cheated on her the night before her wedding. This is my first Vivian Winslow book and it will not be my last.

Favorite Quote: 

Lily, this is it, there is no denying this attraction. Stop pretending you don’t want this. “Want is a very dangerous thing, Gustavo,” Lily says firmly.

review

Calla Lily picks up where Gilded Lily ended. There is still hot sex but a new suitor in New York. I liked that this book showed that Lily does have a brain and can do what most spoiled New Year Socialites can’t do and that is run a company.  Calla Lily is a nice short summer read and would be a great companion poolside. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait too long for the third book because there is a hell of a cliffhanger.
