4 Stars

  Lily had never been so mad in her life! How could she? How could HE?? Her fiancee and her SISTER!!!??? Sure her sister excused it saying she did it to show Lily hat a low down snake her fiancee was, but that doesn't make it hurt any less. The only way to get through this was to go away. Far away. As in Rio. She would show the. Take her honeymoon and get the hell out of Dodge. A honeymoon for one wasn't so bad. She could have the lying dogs share of all the amenities hotel had to offer. Find some willing native hunks to drown her sorrows with. Have all the hot monkey sex she can handle.Yeah, that was the ticket! Lots of steamy orgasms and she would wash that man right outta her hair! But life has a way of throwing a wrench into the best laid plans. She didn't plan meeting anyone special, but there he was. Hot and sexy, just what she needed.Lily can't resist Gustav's charm, nor the way he could take her fro zero to super hot with just a look! They both know that what happens in Rio, stays in Rio. But when the time comes for them to part, will it be that easy? Could Lily forget the many ways he took her and turned her body inside out?

Calla Lily:
3 1/2 Stars
Review by Myra3 1/2 StarsAlthough I stayed engrossed with the first book of this series, the second book didn't have as much meat as I had hoped. This is not a stand alone novel, you definately need to read the first one in order to follow the story here .I did enjoy following Lily and Vi's humor and their lusty sexual appetites.Through Lily's need to build a life that does not include her scum sucking,and scum wasn't all he was sucking, ex fiancee, to her fierce desire to open herself to her own sexual desires, she needs to prove she can move on and have a wonderful life. Her trip helped. It was hard to leave Gustav, but they both knew it couldn't last. but his wife made it hard for her to stay, He gave her to hottest orgasms she had ever had, and she has had plenty! Gustav was all she could ever want. But that was only a fling in Rio. Right? He was so incredibly hot in bed, and generous out.

Tiger Lily:
3 Stars
The first two novels in Lily and Vi's story gave us the fun, hurt and forgiveness of two delightful sisters as they plow their way through forbidden foods, sex, and broken hearts . This is not a stand alone novel.I did feel like by the third novel. Lily was losing a little of herself as she was drawn into situations too easily and she was led more by her desire for hot steamy sex, than to build any relationships. She couldn't seem keep from bouncing from one guy to the next. Most loose ends were not all tied up, and left me not knowing if that was all there was, or would there be a follow up? Lily had no problem taking over the business when her dad became ill. She just didn't think it would take so long.. she certainly doesn't want to rush his recovery. But she is anxious to get on with her life after her failed engagement. Sex helps relieve the tension and the stress of trying to keep her dads business afloat, keep her loser of a fiancee at bay, and keep up with the nonstop partying life style her sister is determined to drag her into! Todd was always there, willing to take her body any time and any where. He was like her own sex toy, but friendship is all they would ever have. Gustav held her heart, but that was not meant to be. Her lying snake of an ex would not get the hint and go way, and trying to keep her her family business going was more than she bargained for!

Vivian Winslow was born and raised in Southern California. Before becoming a writer, she made a career out of moving around the world every couple of years thanks to her husband’s job. She currently lives in New York City with her husband and two elementary school age children, and is grateful to finally have a place to call home for more than two years. New York is the perfect city to indulge her love of shopping, the arts and especially food. If she’s not at home writing or running around the city with her kids, you’ll most likely find her indulging in pizza on the Lower East Side or having a cocktail at her favorite bar in Alphabet City. That said, she’s still a California girl at heart and would gladly trade in her heels for a pair of flip-flops to catch a sunset on the beach
