The Lily Trilogy by Vivian Winslow
Lily, a strong-willed New York socialite has just had the rug pulled out from under when she finds her fiancé and her twin sister in bed together. The wedding is off, but why not take the honeymoon trip on her own? When a handsome and hot “guide” offers to show her the delights of Rio, ending up delighting Lily more than she could have imagined, her sexual awakening is cut short when the unsuspecting wife shows up.
Lily is out of there, with more than one lesson learned. A call from home brings her rushing back to New York, her father ill and his company in need of an interim CEO. Is Lily up for the job or will her new sexual appetites find her making more than business deals in the boardroom?
The battle rages for control of her family’s company and Lily tries to find relief with a wild bartender who knows how to shake or stir more than alcohol when it comes to Lily. Like Goldilocks, the fit isn’t quite right and a trip to meet up with her twin and her boyfriend could be a turning point for Lily, her desires and her heart.
Vivian Winslow’s The Lily Trilogy is pure erotic heat with a touch of plot added to allow us time to cool off and breathe. She is no shrinking violet when it comes to turning up the tension, and laying it all “bare,” so to speak and creating a quick read that doubles as a cardio workout. I suggest a fan, smelling salts and a lock on the door for this one. If you’re new to erotic romance, strap in, because this is a no holds barred look into Lily’s life, bedroom and even the boardroom! 3.5 stars
