~*~ ARC Review ~*~ Gilded Flower Series 1,2 & 3 By Vivian Winslow

Book #1

Gilded Lily



After catching her fiancé Jack in bed with her sister the day before her wedding, New York socialite Lily Baron escapes to Rio, her honeymoon destination—alone. There, Marcelo, the dark and sexy hotel masseur, releases a heated passion Lily had never experienced with Jack. When Lily meets handsome and powerful Brazillionaire Gustavo de Lima, she can hardly resist him. There’s just one problem. He’s married. In this uber-sensual city, will Lily’s reluctance to be with a married man, in light of her own fiancé’s betrayal, give way to her burning desire for Gustavo?


My Review:

Firstly I want to thank Vivian Winslow for kindly providing me with a copy of Gilded Lily to read and review

Being deceived and betrayed in the worst possible way an by the two people she trust mostly cuts Lily to the core.

Deciding a break away will do her some good, Lily goes on her honeymoon….alone….

Along the way she meets a male masseuse that helps her express her sensual and sexual side.

Holy fricking yeah……

In swoons Mr. Dark and Sexy brazillionaire.

Ladies…and gentlemen let me introduce you to Gustavo.

No lie – he’s Brazilian and a millionaire what more could Lily want….and nothing could possible screw this up for her right….

WRONG….Mr hot stuff is taken…yep, he’s married AND has kids…

Will it be love or was she just the next girl to hold him over while his wife is away?

This is a three-book novella series, with Gilded Lily being the first of the books.

I definitely want more of these two characters


Book #2

Calla Lily



Having experienced a profound personal and sexual awakening during her solo honeymoon to Brazil, New York socialite Lily Baron rushes back to New York upon hearing the news that her father has fallen ill. Now, Lily must take the helm of the Baron Media empire and fend off a high-stakes hostile takeover attempt. With the fate of the company hanging in the balance, will Lily be able to resist the advances of the luring, unwanted suitor in the boardroom as well as the bedroom? Things get steamy in this highly anticipated sequel to Gilded Lily.


My Review:

Another HOT & Steamy read from the Gilded Flower series by Vivian Winslow.

Having been found in a compromising position that she once walked in on, Lily rushed to leave…to go back home to New York…with her fun in Rio now over, it’s time to look to her future…due to her father falling ill Lily is acting now as CEO of her father’s company….trying to stop those from buying them out…

Having withdrawals from the hunky brazillian, Lily throws herself into work and no play….that is until she meets Todd again….oh and it he HOT.

Dahlia and Vi, make me laugh in this book, these two are a total hoot, and are tying to get Lily out of her funk that she’s been in since Rio…

The solution….spending new years in Miami….

Throw in another HOT guy…yes Lily meets a cuban, Alejandro and he sounds delicious…

Unfortunately here comes the return of Brazillianaire…Gustavo….

When deception once again comes knocking on Lily’s door, she doesn’t hesitate and reacts quickly.

Family betrayals are revealed and lies are admitted….

We are left wondering what her future will hold!

I for one CAN NOT wait for Tiger Lily…


Book #3

Tiger Lily



Weary from battling a hostile takeover attempt of her family’s company, Lily seeks a distraction in Todd, an erstwhile bartender with a large trust fund and magical tongue. Meanwhile, a connection seems to be developing between Lily and Alejandro, a wealthy and gorgeous Cuban-American, whose brother, Rodrigo, is dating Lily’s twin sister, Dahlia. When Alejandro unexpectedly rebuffs Lily one night, she is deeply dismayed. But, after seeing Alejandro’s picture with a gorgeous Latina model in the gossip pages, Lily thinks it wasn’t just a misunderstanding. When the sisters and brothers reunite in Aspen for a ski weekend, will Lily’s heart remain frozen or will the fire between her and Alejandro rekindle and melt away the ice?


My Review:

Having learnt the true deceit behind Gustavo’s words, Lily has to confront her father about the future of Baron Media…

Should they stay or should they go….?

Having ended her fling from Rio, Lily has set her sights on the cuban brother….but has that ship sailed?

Lily’s character is a different person from whom we saw at the beginning of book 1, she’s grown to become more independent, and it’s opened her eyes to the men of this world in this century….

Dahlia and Rodrigo are getting closer by the minute, but there is still a secret between them that we are yet to find out….

After being knocked back by the serious and gorgeous Alejandro, Lily seems to be stuck in a rut, not knowing what to do with herself. Luckily her fun loving and feisty sister D and her best friend Vi, are around to drag her sorry arse off to Aspen for some Skiing fun….unbeknown to Lily, Rogrigo will be there….which mean the hot and sexy….Alejandro will be there…..

What trouble can she get herself into???

There are still many secrets kept hidden from the Baron family and I for one is glad that Dahlia will be getting her book,  she has some secrets and I’m dying to know about them…
