Holden Scott is the prince of professional football. At least he was before he lost it all . . . or more to the point, before he threw it all away. Now he's out of a job, out of the public's good graces, and perhaps just a little out of his mind. So when a friend offers up his remote lodge in the wilds of Colorado, giving Holden some time away to get his life back on track, he can hardly say no. The last thing he expects is to see a beautiful girl in the woods—one wearing a white, lace dress who appears in the moonlight, and leaves no footprints behind. Is she a dream? A ghost? A product of his muddled imagination? Or something entirely different?
Midnight Lily is the haunting love story of two lost souls reaching for each other in the dark. A tale of healing, acceptance, and the worlds we create to protect our own hearts. It is a story of being lost, of being found, and of being in the place between.
THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY VIRGO. Non-Paranormal, New Adult Contemporary Romance.
Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Here’s the thing. This book is impossible to review. If I tell you what the book is about, you will be spoiled. If I say too much, you will be spoiled. If you skip parts, you will be spoiled. If you read some of the reviews out there, you will be spoiled. And if you are spoiled you won’t enjoy the book as much. This is the ultimate “go in blind” and expect the unexpected book. This is definitely not your typical Mia Sheridan book and it’s a departure from the other books in the series. That simple.
I will say this, once I got into it, I couldn’t put it down. I was hooked. I needed to know how this would end. Now, I’m usually pretty good at figuring out where the story is going, so hardly anything surprises me. Well, this one did, it totally did. My mind was blown. I still can’t stop thinking about it, cause wow. And that’s why I’m rating this book 5 stars, because in a sea of predictable and more of the same books, this one happened to surprise me. Not to mention, Mia Sheridan is such a talented writer and her writing is simply beautiful.
“Happily ever after doesn’t mean a lifetime of perfection. I don’t think anyone believes that happily ever after means there are no unhappy days, even unhappy years. It means loving forever, despite all the many reasons it’s easier not to.”
“We will never be perfect or without flaws, the lives we’ve been given are not like that. But, Lily, in my heart, you are perfect for me. Perfectly mine. And I’m yours.”
Now, this book might not be for everyone, especially if you like your romance books full circle and well defined, this one is puzzling in that area, but I loved it. It’s different and challenging and definitely a new favorite!
