Review: Taming Lily by Monica Murphy

I’m in trouble. Again. And instead of facing my problems head on, I’ve run away. Far away this time, and no one can catch me—not my two younger sisters, Violet and Rose, not my father, my grandmother, or that witch Pilar who wants to take control of my family’s cosmetics company. Now I’m in Hawaii, enjoying the sun and the sand and water, where nobody knows the hot mess known as Lily Fowler. And I’m loving every minute of it.

But someone is watching me. Following me. He’s gorgeous. And soon we’re talking, and against all my instincts, I reveal bits and pieces of myself to Max. It feels good, though I know he can’t be the man for me. These sudden feelings we share are way too complicated, too fraught, too intense.

Then everything explodes and I’m forced to return home. My intentions have always been true, but now everyone’s mad at me. I don’t know who to turn to anymore . . . except to Max. He’s who I want to trust. But I’m not so sure I should. Maybe it’s worth the risk—and what-ifs be damned. . . .
This book was received by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. 

Monica Murphy is amazing. I have followed and adored her since One Week Girlfriend came out. Her writing is captivating!

Lily was so different than she was portrayed in the first two books. I thought she was a vapid girl who partied all the time and didn’t care about anything important. But she completely proved me wrong in this book. She was really smart and really cared about her family’s business. She had a heart of gold.

Max was superrrr mysterious and sexy. I liked how he became vulnerable around Lily and let his inner self show. He was not a good guy at first but then he changed for the better. I liked how he helped Lily with the struggle against the crazy person trying to take over Fleur Cosmetics.

Their chemistry was off the wall right from when they met and it just grew and grew. I was sad to see this series end but it ended perfectly. I cannot wait for whatever Monica has in store for her following!
Taming Lily (The Fowler Sisters, #3)
