  • Astonishingly well crafted.

    In the real world, relationships must deal with the demands of family, jobs, friends, and all that comes with daily life. And so it was for Branch and Ragan. Branch is a hometown hero who returns to the hometown - not for the accolades - but to address issues of a broken home, the needs of a younger brother, and the family history that drove him off. Ragan is successfully overcoming frightening abuse and deprivations of her own childhood as well as the struggles of being a single mom. Each lives behind a façade hiding who they truly are, the fears and worries each has, and the desperate need for connection that they share – but can’t see in each other. except for tenuous hints that keep each pondering the other. Lilly Wilde has done a superb job of bringing admirable, if flawed, characters to life. One can’t help but relate to the feelings, the fears, the joys as each struggle to meet the multiple challenges in their lives, while carving out time for the relationships they crave. This is largely due to the enormous skill and attention to detail that Lilly brings to these books. She shows an intricate understanding how people react under severe pressure, and the spirit that can lead them to overcome it.

  • The Perfect and Intense beginning

    It's been so long since I've read a book from this author and I couldn't be happier. Her previous books made me dream and freak out at the same time. Each word, each chapter made me feel things and see things from a new angle. And now I'm about to embark on another journey... A duet... Oh boy. Lilly Wilde is the author I'm talking about and her writing will knock the air out of your lungs. Her writing is hot and wild, sassy but with so much meaning between each chapter. Shattered Beginnings is her latest release and it's the first book from the No Longer Broken Duet and tells the stories of Branch and Regan. Branch is an athlete that knows what he wants and just goes for it. Of course being in the spotlight has its rewards and one night stands are it for him. When he gets a phone call from home he can't imagine what's about to happen. Regan grew up in a dysfunctional family and that left a mark. On the outside she was a sweet girl, always happy but on the inside she was crushed and damaged. Lord have mercy on me... This book just crushed my heart, my soul... The plot is exquisite, very well written, super engaging and intense. Each chapter made my heart feel heavier and so tight that I thought I would pass out. The struggles these two endured and still deal with are life altering. The interation between the characters is beautiful despite all the darkness and drama. There were parts of the story that I saw myself living it, ready to knock someone out and then there were others that I just wanted to crawl back in bed and cry. It was an intense reading and I can't get enough words to describe this book. And now it's over and I don't want to wait for the next one. I can't... I want more and asap. Lilly what can I say... I'm overwhelmed with this book and I'm super mad for waiting for the next one. I'll be counting down the days...

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Heartbreaking,but Addictive Read!

    Shattered Beginning is not a fluffy sweet story, but never the less I was mesmerised and pulled into this heartbreaking tale . Ragan and Branch both have been damaged by their upbringing. Reading about Ragan and what she suffered  during her upbringing what she went through as a child was heartbreaking, and I felt like I was suffering with her. Branch with his mother’s metal health issues, and worrying about his brother, and the way it affects the decisions he now makes as an adult. When Branch has to return to Blue Ridge when mother has gone missing, he ends up staying for a  longer period than he first thought. This is when he goes into his local diner and Ragan is his waitress. Ragan is the only women that doesn’t drool all over him, so he is intrigued. This is a slow build with regard to the romance, not that there is any doubt there is a deep attraction between them. After finding out their backgrounds you understand why they are both gun shay . I’m impatient  to find out what happens next between Ragan and Branch. Unfortunately we have to wait for the next book to see if two broken people can love each other.  

    Thanks for your feedback!
