Kyle & Lily.

Lily has lived in Sanibel Island for about 3 years, she keeps to herself, writes her romance novels, has her best friend, Luke, but she holds a lot on her shoulders. 

Lily has gone through a tragic loss and left the rest of her family and escapes in the beautiful beaches in Florida, as she does her work. Luke is her best friend and the only one she socializes with outside of her family. Between Lily and Luke, one has stronger feelings for the other, take a guess?

And then Kyle strolls along, inside voices tell Lily to stay away, but they both have a strong pull towards each other that neither can ignore.

It was hard for me to really connect with the story, I was expecting a lot more to happen, but it just wasn't quite there. Lily, she has seriously gone through a lot and huge thanks goes out to Kyle (I'll get to him after) for helping her slowly overcome things. He had his stalker-ish ways about him, but it seemed to turn out for the better. I like how she progressed as a character, it takes a lot of courage to face things full on.

I was a fan of Luke at first, but then I saw another side of him (crazy-jealous man) that didn't sit well with me at all. He still doesn't sit well with me and you'll gather that information rather quickly, if you read the book. I will say that something about him was very off.

And there's Kyle, he was a little bit much at first. He was popping up all over the place, there were times, when I expected something bad to happen, but it never did. 

I enjoyed the story for the most part, I wouldn't say it was quite my favorite, but I think the second book will truly play things out. I do look forward to reading what happens in My Beautiful cause that will answer the lovely cliffhanger in this book.
