*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.*
Taming Lily is the third and final book in the Fowler Sisters series. It was the turn of wild child Lily to get her story.
Lily has always felt like a disappointment to her family. Her contribution to the family business is non-existent and instead she is known for brining scandal and shame to the Fluer cosmetics name. But when Lily discovers a secret that can blow everything apart, Lily does what she does best: she runs.
Sexy, mysterious Max is sent to keep an eye on Lily. She has something he needs but instead, as soon as Max sets his eyes on the sexy singleton, it’s not longer about the job; it’s about taming the wild girl he sees before him.
“She is a woman who was made to submit yet is scared to give up control.”
Max and Lily’s relationship was a volatile one and it worked. They were both headstrong people reluctant to give up control. The push and pull between them made for some interesting results and it was fun to see both Max and Lily fight for dominance. But it was even sweeter to see them both mellow and find themselves by the end of the book.
Now I must say this has to be Monica Murphy’s sexiest book yet. And believe me, there was no shortage of the hot stuff. If I were a smoker, I’d be stepping outside for a cigarette to calm me down after reading this book. However, I did feel some of the sex took away the focus of the story for me, the suspense momentum slowed down because Lily and Max couldn’t keep their clothes on. I mean I get it, they were young and hot for each other but with the other things going on I was on tenterhooks wondering how it would all pan out. I can’t fault Max for his stamina, the boy should be proud, I just wanted him to get there quicker ;). But joking aside, I did enjoy Lily and Max’s relationship. Their true characters were slowly drawn out in between the bouts of sex and when we did see glimpses of it, I clung onto them, craving more.
Taming Lily was a quick, fun and entertaining read. If you have followed the series from the beginning the Pilar storyline comes to a head and even though it wasn’t overly dramatic, it was great to see Lily come into her own and seek revenge.
As always Monica Murphy writes sexy stories with endearing characters. With a formula like that, you can’t go wrong.
