Potential. . . Delayed

More story, less orgasms would make for a better read. Had a decent storyline but everything was secondary to hooking up all the young adults for constant sexcapades. When a normal adult woman starts skimming OVER the sex scenes, it has gone from erotic to beyond gratuitous. I'd like to see where the story goes but not enough to endure more of the same in the sequel.
Amie Morgado- We Stole Your Book Boyfriend
A great story filled with love and tons of suspense.
Lilly was adopted by Ted and Jane Sumnor , who happen to be some of the wealthiest people in Louisiana. This does not mean that Lilly lives a charmed life , quite the opposite actually. Lilly is hated , physically and mentally abused for 18 years of her life by her adoptive mother Jane. Where does this hate come from ?? That is just one mystery this story will try to unfold. The only joys in Lilly's life come from the live in maid , Miss.

This book was well written but there are spots in the middle of the story that kind of stalled out for me. I am glad that I pushed through because it picks up and I love the ending. The author leaves you wanting more.

Lilly is an abused and neglected girl. Her step mother hates her and beats her for the smallest thing. Her father is never home and when he is he keeps his distance. I really feel for Lilly in this part of the book. The people that are suppose to love her the most don't care.

I stumbled onto this book after reading Amie's Deep Blue Series. I was so taken in by her writing style that I just had to have more, then I found this little baby. Turns out, this was written BEFORE the Deep Blue Series, so I wondered why I hadn't heard of it before now. As I sit here writing this, I still don't have the answer to that question. This truly was a hidden gem. There was just so much to love about this book.

We are introduced to Lilly as a shut in teenager suffering at the hands of

**Copy received from Author in exchange for an honest review**

The main character of this story is Lilly Sumnor. The adopted millionaire heiress to the Sumnor fortune after her adopted parents die from a car crash.

This story is filled with mystery and interesting twists and turns. As soon as the beginning starts there is no turning back. You figure out what it is that is happening, but the masks and facade is impenetrable unless you are close to the issue. Lilly

Lilly Sumnor was adopted as an infant by Theodore and Jane Sumnor. She spent her whole life being hated by her “mother”, but never understanding why. Jane was verbally and physically abusive, but since the Sumnor’s were so well respected in Louisiana, it was useless for anyone to report the abuse. Jane had Lilly homeschooled and the only time she was allowed to leave the house was for her yearly checkup. Lilly’s only bright spot in life is Luke Hansen, the grounds keepers’ son. Luke would come ...more

This was a rather good story, about Lilly Sumnor. She was adopted into a very wealthy family & on the surface, everything looked perfect. Sadly Lilly’s adopted mother Jane hates her & is very abusive towards her. Lilly’s only relief is from the Housekeeper Miss Finnegan & her friendship with Luke, who is the Gardeners Son. Luke is sent away, so he cannot cause trouble for Lilly, leaving her alone to suffer her abuse.

When her parents are killed in a car accident, Lilly is the sole

Wow, this book is great. Mixed up some mystery, romance, voodoo, and a crazy stalker and you have this book. With all that mixed in there us never a boring moment int he story. It's a great read.

Lily's adoptive parents have passed a way and left her with a ton of money and property. As she looks deeper into her property and the papers her father has left, she begins to try to figure out who her mother was.

Lily has always had a crush on Luke. He has been gone for a while when he returns, there

This story was a hard one to figure out. The love story came to fruition so quickly, I was afraid that it wouldn't last. I really , really wanted it to last! Luke and Lilly's love story was beautiful. There was a mystery, why did her step mom hate her so? Watching Lily grow into herself after her parents's death was heartening, especially after all the abuse she suffered early on.

Just when you get to know all of Lily's friends, there is another mystery. She has a stalker. Who is it? Will he get
I received this book in exchange for an honest review!!!!! Let me first say I really liked the story I thought that the plot was a great idea. Her characters were well developed, and there was a lot of characters that were crucial to the story. The problems that I had with the story was it seemed to drag in some places, almost like lets just throw this in to see if we can make it longer. In my opinion way to many HEA! (Personal preference) Lol! But overall I really did like the story the ...more

Unbreakable is a very intense, heartbreaking, loving and at times scary book. I felt bad for Lily as she was growing up with the situation that she was in. She is a strong, caring, courageous woman and fall in love with a very sexy, smart and strong man. Things happen and the twist that follows is something that is crazy. I can't wait to read the next part of this story!

I was given this for an honest review. This book just pulls you in and keeps you there till the very last page. I was very surpised by this book. First I was surpised and delighted with all the nicely done twist and turns. Then I was surpised with how much I fell in love with the characters. I truly enjoyed the whole book. I don't want to give away to much. I truly LOVED this book..

Amie Nichols fan for life!!!!

Amie Nichols has done it again. I loved your Deep Blue Series, and the Cypress Grove series seems to be just as great. I am officially hooked. I can't wait for book 2.
