Calla Lily by Vivian Winslow
Having experienced a profound personal and sexual awakening during her solo honeymoon to Brazil, New York socialite Lily Baron rushes back to New York upon hearing the news that her father has fallen ill. Now, Lily must take the helm of the Baron Media empire and fend off a high-stakes hostile takeover attempt. With the fate of the company hanging in the balance, will Lily be able to resist the advances of the luring, unwanted suitor in the boardroom as well as the bedroom? Things get steamy in this highly anticipated sequel to Gilded Lily.
In this second installment of the Gilded Flower series, we get to know Lily on a deeper level as well as witness crucial interactions and conversations with her family. As a reader you’re provided with more insight to help understand the motives driving Lily and her family to make the decisions they do, whether that be in personal encounters or business transactions. There was more of an emotional connection stewing as opposed to the abundance of sexual encounters in the first installment, but for me that complete emotional connection with Lily hasn’t been fully reached at this point. This novel moves at a fast pace, similar to the first, but allows your mind to bring forth questions and wonder how dramatic interactions will play out. To answer these questions, I will dive into the third installment. Give this a try and find your next crush! Rating: 3.5 stars
