Tiger Lily by Vivian Winslow
Weary from battling a hostile takeover attempt of her family’s company, Lily seeks a distraction in Todd, an erstwhile bartender with a large trust fund and magical tongue. Meanwhile, a connection seems to be developing between Lily and Alejandro, a wealthy and gorgeous Cuban-American, whose brother, Rodrigo, is dating Lily’s twin sister, Dahlia. When Alejandro unexpectedly rebuffs Lily one night, she is deeply dismayed. But, after seeing Alejandro’s picture with a gorgeous Latina model in the gossip pages, Lily thinks it wasn’t just a misunderstanding. When the sisters and brothers reunite in Aspen for a ski weekend, will Lily’s heart remain frozen or will the fire between her and Alejandro rekindle and melt away the ice?
Lily’s at it again, trying to fight the pull she feels towards Gustavo for his backhanded ways. Lily’s focus is on finding the answers for what she wants to do with her life. Lily is also working on the virtue of patience and not rushing when desire catches her. This novel flowed similar to the second installment in that we get more family interactions that lead to further questions regarding motives. As the reader you also notice there are several secrets the Baron family is withholding, some from others as well as secrets amongst themselves. I’m hopeful that we’ll learn of these secrets when the series continues with Lily’s sister, Dahlia’s, story. Between many chapters time is jumped and leaves me feeling we missed pertinent happenings. My connection with the Baron family has yet to be solidified, but their motives and drive keep me guessing at the actions they make. The ending wraps up quickly, leaving you with the knowledge that Lily has settled down, but her history of sexual impulsivity leaves me doubting this because we didn’t have the pleasure of seeing this change and growth. All of these uncertainties and questions will have me picking up the next installment. Give this a try and find your next crush! Rating: 3.5 stars
