Let me tell you about the Author Lily Hayden who writes chick lit with a kick! Modern day women may want modern day heroines but Lily's characters want sizzling romance, rewarding careers and equal partnerships. However like all of us they face many challenges and it isn't always easy. Lily is a mother to four children and has a degree in Business which she got in her home town in South Wales. She has enjoyed a successful career in Financial Services before fulfilling her lifelong ambition to write books. Her debut novel Butterflies, was released in 2018 and is a heartwarming alternative to the traditional boy-meets-girl story. She reaches readers all over the world and is the author of five books including a Young Adult Dystiopian novel Project Terra under the alias SJ Wood (because who doesn't love a bit of action and defeating bad guys every now and again). Make sure you follow Lily on her Socials for the latest releases, promotions and the occasional photos of her dogs.
Overall I simply adored this book from start to finish. I went from Chapter 1 to Chapter 36 in one day as I simply could not put it down. Even when I did manage to pry the kindle from my hands, my mind was completely dominated by thoughts about this book. It is beyond addictive to the point that you will not notice the chapter numbers. The reader will sit there thinking they have finished 1 chapter when in fact they have devoured a lot more. I will certainly be looking out for more books by this Author. You can get your copy HERE.
Until Next Time
