With her hidden past about to be exposed, Vi turns to her longtime friend and confidant, Thomas Squires, for help. Yet, they may just risk exposing their feelings for each other in the process. When Lily’s engagement to Alejandro is threatened by ex-lover Gustavo, Vi is forced to come clean with her best friend and possibly destroy the lives of those she loves. Now that her secrets are no longer hidden, Vi faces the most difficult challenge yet—how to build a new life for herself outside of the shadows.
I’ve been a fan of this group of friends since the beginning (Vi, Lily, and Dahlia). They each have their own quirks which gives them their special flare. I’ve enjoyed the secrecy that is Vi’s life because I love that mysterious vibe. But with this installment, I don’t feel that anymore answers were given, instead more knots were formed. Somehow I feel we’re not getting all that Vi is, like she’s holding something back. I know she has a plan and I just want to be in the know, so maybe there lies my frustration which will make for a good wait until the next installment releases. There’s several sub-characters in which their side stories have left loose-ends, so I’m hopeful everything gets squared away in upcoming installments. Vivian’s got something cooking and I’m anxious to see if it’ll simmer or boil over. Someone’s going to get burned because Vi’s a hard person not to love…but who will it be? Give this a try and find your next book crush! Rating: 3 stars
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.
