Series: The Fowler Sisters #3
Author: Monica Murphy
Release Date: July 7, 2015
Perfect for fans of Christina Lauren, Emma Chase, and Maya Banks, the anticipated finale in New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy’s sexy contemporary romance series about three fiery and determined sisters with their own ideas about life and love.
I’m in trouble. Again. And instead of facing my problems head-on, I’ve run away. Far away this time, and no one can catch me—not my two younger sisters, Violet and Rose, not my father, my grandmother, or that witch Pilar who wants to take control of my family’s cosmetics company. Now I’m in Hawaii, enjoying the sun and sand and water, where nobody knows the hot mess known as Lily Fowler. And I’m loving every minute of it.
But someone is watching me. Following me. He’s gorgeous. Soon we’re talking, and against all my instincts, I reveal bits and pieces of myself to Max. It feels good, though I know he can’t be the man for me. These sudden feelings we share are way too complicated, too fraught, too intense.
Then everything explodes and I’m forced to return home. My intentions have always been true, but now everyone’s mad at me. I don’t know who to turn to anymore . . . except to Max. He’s the one I want to trust. But I’m not so sure I should. Maybe it’s worth the risk—what-ifs be damned. . . .
I was so excited for this book it was not even funny. I absolutely LOVED Rose and Violet’s books and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one and it was so WORTH the wait!
Lily is the oldest of the Fowler sisters. She is known for being a trouble maker, so I was very happy to find out who she really is. In reality, she is envious, feisty, vulnerable, and attention seeking. She just wants to be loved and accepted.
“Me. Envious of couples, of other people having someone to love. The girl who doesn’t believe in relationships, who had a daddy complex because he’s so selfish, is wishing she had someone, at least for tonight.”
Enter Max, a PI who is hired to steal a laptop from Lily. He follows her to Maui. What he doesn’t expect is to fall for his mark. The two “meet” unexpectedly and the connection between the two is magnetic.
“I need to get over this…woman. She’s a distraction. I have a job to do. I can’t afford to let lust get in the way of it.”
Once they get their hands on each other, they can’t stop. It is HOT, sexy, and definitely required a change of panties a time or two.
“The way you sucked my cock so hard I came in your mouth. The taste of your pussy, how easy I could make you come, make you scream. How god it felt, my cock buried inside of you, fucking you.”
I adored this story! It was steamy, full of drama and secrets, and oh, so good. It was so sweet watching Lily become who she should be and not her hidden persona that she shows the world. Max was such an amazing man and he was the perfect match for Lily.
I really enjoyed seeing both Rose and Violet and their significant others throughout this story. I can’t wait for more from Ms. Murphy. She is a captivating storyteller and I loved the entire Fowler Sisters series!
