Lantern Lake by Lily Everett is a January 2014 St. Martin's Press Publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Cooper is on Sanctuary Island for the wedding of his friend Mile's wedding. He can not believe it when Greta invites Vivian to be one of the bridesmaids. But, maybe he can turn the tables on the lovely Vivian. She left him without a word and now although it has been ten years, he is still angry and embittered. So, how wo

Really enjoyed this book in the series but it was too short.
Another sweet installment to Lily Everett's Billionaire Bachelor's series where billionaire Miles Harrington is playing matchmaker for his three best friends. This third book in the series, LANTERN LAKE, is actually a second chance story for his friends, Cooper Haynes and Vivian Blake. Miles introduced them in college, where they fell in deeply in love and planned to marry, but they were both left with broken hearts due to outside forces.

Miles and his new bride, Greta have asked them both to be
4 stars.

Ah, second chance romance. It's no secret that I was looking forward to Vivian and Cooper's story right from the beginning of this series, and I have to say that I enjoyed this novella more than the other two combined. Cooper was swoon-worthy and Vivan wasn't horrible ;) I enjoyed the pacing of this story and the way things unfolded.

This is the 3rd in the Billionaire Bachelor series and this series just kept getting better as it went along. Each Bachelor and the respective female lead had their own unique personalities, which I really liked. I certainly didn't want to read the same type of character in different situations but I resonated the most with this book in the series.

As with the first two novellas, we are on Sanctuary Island for Miles and Greta's wedding, however this novella picks up Cooper's story at the wedding

I received an advance reader edition of this book from St. Martin's Press and Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella. I would rate this story a solid 4 out of 5 stars. This is the third book in the Billionaire Bachelors trilogy. I was lucky enough to have the chance to read all of the books in the trilogy in order but I each novella could be read as a stand alone. The novellas do share severa

Well, Miles did it. He ambushed Cooper at his and Greta’s wedding. How you ask? By not telling him that the two of them had asked Miles old and dear friend, Vivian Banks, to be in the wedding. This would make Cooper Hayes upset why you ask? Well, Viv and Cooper were do to get married. He had the marriage license in hand at the courthouse and she never showed up.

A fateful day in Cooper’s past caused him to start traveling the world, to get away from the pain. He gave his heart, he loved with every part of him, but it wasn’t enough for her; she just walked away from it all. He was determined to never love again, but that was before Vivian walked down the aisle at his friend’s wedding.
This by far was my favorite novella in this trilogy. I enjoyed Cooper and Vivian, their past and their journey to rediscover their love. I would have love

I enjoyed this contemporary romance novella, Book 3 of the Billionaire Bachelors trilogy. Vivian Banks and Cooper Hayes meet, years after a college breakup, at Miles and Greta's wedding. The breakup was bitter for Vivian, and confusing to Cooper. When he sees her, all he can think of is getting revenge at her for leaving him with no explanation. His plan is for one night of pleasure, then he walks away and leaves her forever. Well, you know what they say about best-laid plans.

What a powerful conclusion to a whirlwind e-novella trilogy to introduce us to Sanctuary Island. This is the final book of three, which follows Cooper and Vivian's story. What made this story different, is that Cooper and Vivian have a past which left Cooper completely demolished. The story begins at the Wedding of Miles and Greta and along the way, we find out why Cooper is so angry at the girl who was once the love of his life and we get to root for them to find their way back to each other.

I've enjoyed all three books from The Billionaire Bachelors series and I think Lantern Lake might be my favorite :)

Cooper's and Vivian's story was touching and very emotional.
Vivian is the woman who broke Cooper's heart all those years ago and to this day she's still the only woman he's truly loved.
How does he handle his feelings when he see's her again at his friends wedding and is it fate that they meet up again after all this time?

I received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. I loved this series. Miles made a bet with his three best friends that they would all find love on Sanctuary Island before his wedding. Two have lost the bet and now it is Cooper's turn. Cooper Haynes has only loved one girl, Vivian Banks. But when she left him at the courthouse holding the marriage license without a word, his heart was broken forever. Or so he though.

This novella was the final installment of the Billionaire Bachelors trilogy by Lily Everett and I think my favorite of the three. When Miles first laid out the bet for his helicopter with his three friends, this is the one relationship he knew could either really go well or really go poorly. Cooper and Vivian were engaged in college. In fact, Cooper was waiting at the Justice of Peace when Vivian disappeared from his life. Neither one has ever gotten over the other. Vivian married according to h ...more

Well we have reached the end of the second trilogy in this spinoff of the Billionaire Brothers/Bachelors.

As with the others the main theme was that people come to Sanctuary Island and magically find the love of their lives. While that may sound a bit cheesy on the surface the stories are anything but, they are light hearted fantasy in many ways but they are great comfort reading and should leave you happy.

This last installment details Cooper and Vivian, a "left him at the altar" type plot with a

I've loved watching each of the billionaire bachelors fall in love. I wondered as I read the first 2, who Cooper might meet on island, and loved that Miles and Greta had Vivian, who happens to be Cooper's one and only love, be in the wedding. While Cooper's idea of revenge seemed harsh, even knowing Vivian had left him with no notice, I loved how quickly it backfired on him.

I loved the connection between Cooper and Vivian from the moment they saw one another again. I knew their history could be

This has been a wonderful series. The characters are so much more than just your average billionaires. This finish to the series wraps everything up very nicely and the whole series feels very complete. This installment is different because the 2 main characters had a previous relationship. That added a whole new dimension to it. The characters had to work through the past before they could move forward. I loved the ups and downs. The relationship was reality based, showing that everything is no ...more

Lantern Lake is the third book in the trilogy of the Bachelor Billionaires onSanctuary Island. I have read the other two in this series as well as all the books and novellas about Sanctuary Island. I am a HUGE fan, and this novella was just one more reason. I loved this novella! I enjoyed the characters and how they found their way back to each other. There was heart and emotion and enough of the continuing story of Miles and Greta's wedding to understand how these novellas are connected. All ar ...more

This trilogy has been a really fun read for me - not serious and it was nice to read about happy billionaires for a change. Lantern Lake was similar to the others; you know the outcome of the book before you start, but it was a read that held my attention. I think what I've liked best about this and the other books, is that the characters were real human beings with real troubles.Vivian certainly had a few - and Cooper fell for her all over again! I've also loved the setting. Who doesn't love an ...more

Ah, the one that got away. Always an interesting premise to explore. We all have that one that dominates our “what if” scenarios and with Cooper and Vivian, they are “it”. A shared painful past that still affect their lives now. This book gives a good exploration of Cooper and Vivian’s growth because of and despite the romantic hurdles thrown their way.

This is by far my favorite story in this series. I like "Done Wrong' stories and this one really touched me. I guess it's because I used to hold grudges forever. I always said "I don't get mad-I get even"! I am so glad I outgrew that. I love/hate feeling bad for Cooper and Vivian. I always feel for both characters. I seldom just pick one. This felt like a shorter read than the others but deeper as well. I had to read to the end to get to the problem and then decide who would go first to fix it. ...more

Lantern Lake is a wonderful novella that tells the story of Cooper and Vivian. When they meet at Mile's wedding, Cooper is very bitter over the broken heart Vivian left him with ten years ago. He makes a plan to exact revenge on her, but soon the magic of Sanctuary Island has him re-evaluating his plans. Vivian hasn't had the happy, carefree life that Cooper assumes, and is harboring secrets about her past. Cooper and Vivian are both wonderful, sympathetic characters, and I enjoyed watching them ...more

A bet connects the three stories in this trilogy. The premise has been done before, but Lily Everett provides a fresh take on it and I thoroughly enjoyed her work. Ms. Everett has created a wonderful world an populated it with wonderfully diverse engaging characters. Her writing voice seems to be happy and I appreciated that. It was a light easy read, and it almost felt too short. Lantern Lake is a wonderful second chance at love story. I am looking forward to the next installment.

This is the third installment of the sanctuary island billionaire bachelor series. I liked this one best out of all of them. Cooper and Vivian had the best chemistry, and the story did a better job than the previous two. Cooper had been engaged to Vivian ten years before but she jilted him at the altar. Where best to see her again but at his best friends wedding. It was nice to see the sparks fly of these two as they became reacquainted again.

hard to imagine, because I really liked the other 2, but this one was my favorite.

It was a little bit different from the first 2 books, because in those the main characters met during the book.
In this one Cooper and Vivian had a previously unsuccessful relationship, which adds in a whole new dynamic.

Like the others the story was very cute, the characters are likable and the story moves along at a good pace.

Cooper and Vivian were hopelessly in love a decade ago.... until Vivian stood Cooper up the day they were going to be married by the JP. He hasn't seen her since.....until a wedding where they were partners! His main goal was to plot out revenge and crush her heart with a one night stand. As hopeless romance tales go...this did not happen; in fact, Viv and Cooper got to know each other again and got their second chance! Great short story -- the whole Sancuary Island series is a winner!
