Balancing married life and running a business could be beyond tiresome, but Lily was bent on making both sides of her life thriving and happy, and she did. For a while anyway.

Perfect life.
Perfect husband.
Could we really have it all?

I love Lily and Drake and I think they are amazing characters, but this book for me was pointless. No real story to it, very short and not worth the hassle of reading.
I loved Lily's Mistake, there was a lot going on in that book, a good plot and good characters and I came to love Lily and Drake. I think this book was a way to get a big more money from people while trying to carry on the story.
I can't choose between Lily and Drake to say who is my favourite character, they are both great. Drake

Yum!! I absolutely LOVED this. Great little continuation of Drake and Lily's story. These two characters are so HOT together. I have to say that Pamela really knows how to write a love/sex scene...very well! Drake just knows exactly what to do!! LOL. Looking forward to the next. I highly recommend this series. It's a great story. I will definitely will be moving on to all of Pamela's other books.

Although I LOVE Pamela Ann books I can't help but feel cheated with this "Novella" OK I get that novellas are short stories but I felt it wasn't even short it wasn't even a story. It was like a chapter! I felt like I was hit over the head and robbed! I am still wondering a day later what happened. I know I bought the book but was it even a book? I need should have been free! I still love you Pamela Ann but I was really disappointed in this one! I gave it a 4 because I did love it but I ...more

The book was cute, but I didn't find a plot behind it. Yeah, I get that the intention was to show us a bit of their life together, but it felt more like a prolog than a real book. The problems between the main characters are caused by jealousy, which are only insecurity and lack of confidence.

3.5 STARS~
I love Lily and Drake, and after everything they've been through, I just want them to have their HEA...and you get some of that in Loving Drake, but with all of Lily's insecurities, it's hard to say that they're there yet. I'm looking forward to seeing if they can get everything worked out get past their insecurities and finally get the HEA they both deserve.

This is a very short novella (like super short 49 pages long); it can be read in 45 minutes.
It was nice to revisit these characters, but frankly nothing much happens in terms of plot.

Another good read, again would recommend this book :)

Missing words, grammatical errors, spelling mistakes. Abrupt ending, childish and immature characters. Won’t be reading the next instalment. Sorry to be so harsh.

Good but too expensive for length

Felt this could have been put together with the next one - instead of making it 3 books for more revenue as far too short for the price.

This was a quick short story. The ending of Lily's mistake was not a cliff, it gave you your HEA so to me this story was just a little bonus. I had kind of thought it would be in Drake's POV but it was still a fun little read. It was mainly a set up for the next book. But to be fore warned it does leave you on a little cliffy. Nothing to drastic but it was there. And having the 3rd book already there, I can tell you it starts off literally right where this one leaves off so try to have them all ...more

I love reading how incredibly sexy Drake has become now that he is married, not that he wasn't before. I mean hell Lily's Mistake is one of my Fave's!! But this book changed him from intense to Perfectly intense and incredible and hot and Shmexy. Pamela has taken this story the next level of brilliance! I will admit I am a little jealous of Lily( yeah I know it is fictional) but I dream a little dream as I read how Drake just worships Lilly***SWOON****
This series just reached a whole new level

Once again Pamela Ann has written a great story. I have always loved Lily and Drake.
I don't want to give spoilers so I will try and keep it vague. I will saw that Lilyand Drake
Burned up the pages with there chemistry. It was defiantly worth the read.
I can't wait for the next book in the series from what I read it in this book the next one is really
going to have some angst in it. Pamela Ann my friend you did it again.

It was hot, as usual. The jealousy cliche was a bit too much, but at least it was settled pretty well. The only complaint I have is that I thought this was a one-shot novella. Oh well. I guess I just have to wait for the last book to come out, which won't be for awhile with this author's general tardiness in regards to publishing her books.

I love anything regarding Drake and Lily. This was a good "teaser" leading to the next story of Loving Lily and I am hoping that she is pregnant and hoping Hugh pulls through. I can't wait until July. Thank you Pamela, now I am onto reading the Torn series. You are just wonderful and very talented.

I liked the story but it was too short. The story is really about Lily being insecure. Okay there is some hot sex. In my opinion this is not really a novella. I like Pamela Ann, I liked this storyline but I am not sure what value this short piece added.

I read this an ebook or should I say a really short, short story on my Kindle app.

This novella is short, which is how all novellas are that I have read so I am not disappointed in that at all. The story did leave me wanting more of Lily and Drake and I can not wait until Pamela releases the next book! Lily and Drake have a special kind of chemistry and it was nice to read about it as we got a peek into their married life. Where do they go next?

This is a Novella (1.5) to be read after consuming Lily's mistake , book #1 in Pamela Ann's It's always been you series.
I am glad i read this little Gem ,because it's the next step in the story and without reading it you would miss vital parts of Drake & Lily's emotional storyline between book #1 an book #2 coming out in DEC.
I am looking foreword to reading more of this series.

The grammar in this novella is horrendous. As short as this little novella is, surely 20minutes could have been spent to double check the grammar and wording. I don't care to have to try and decipher what word was actually meant to be in the place that another currently sits. I love Lil and Drake, but the grammar dropped my rating on it big time.

Loving Drake

This was a short read. It leaves you on the edge of your seat. I have a feeling Loving Lily will have some twists and turns in it. I bet Shannon and the intern try to tear Lily and Drake apart. Can't wait for the next book!!!! This was a great read!

I was very disappointed with this book. Pamela is one of my most favorite author. Honestly Lily's insecurities were too much to deal with . Drake kept being on the edge. I hope the next book catches and there is HEA!

Loving Drake was okay, not a bad okay, it just lets itself get read (I know, weird phrasing). Anyway, it was nice, a quick read. 2.5 stars.

I loved Drake and Lily so it was really good to re-read Lily's mistake' before reading this short novella. Not a bad read, I just question whether it was really necessary. Still, I can't wait for the next instalment from Drake's POV.

A fun, short read! Loved finally getting a glimpse of what happens next with Lily and Drake...the ending definitely leads up to the next book and I can't wait to see how their story concludes in Loving Lily which the author has posted will be out this year!

Great look into married life of Drake and Lily. It was nice to see that Lily still wanted to run her own business and not rely on Drake for everything. Not much to the plot but it's a nice look into married life for them.

I loved the first book and I was a little disappointed with this novella as I thought the story didn't really go anywhere, I felt as if this book could have been put onto the end of book 1.
I was still looking forward to reading it and I loved having that little bit more of Drake and Lily.

Drake and Lily, so happy to see more of them. Can't wait for Loving Lily.

This book needed an editor. The grammar was so poor it was hard to understand at times. Aside from that, there was no plot. Hopefully Loving Lily will be better because I enjoyed Lily's Mistake.

Liked it but I thought it was really short for a novella. It was more like a chapter and should have been free.
