Preview — Blue Dahlia by Vivian Winslow
Blue Dahlia was a quick read, and I totally devoured it. I enjoyed learning more about Dahlia and her past, and it was great getting inside her head. The differences between her and her twin sister Lily are more vivid now ...more
Wow! Vivian Winslow, I love you! You never cease to amaze me in your writing! I love how these books are very quick reads and you can still enjoy a sweet love story as well as the hot and steamy parts are never far apart!
Blue Dahlia is the 4th book in the Gilded Flower series and focuses on Lily’s sister Dahlia. I liked this book because you learned more about the character Dahlia and you realize that she is much more complex than what was lead on ...more
It was hard for me to connect fully to Dahlia because while she has obviously suffered some ser ...more
While I did enjoy Blue Dahlia a lot more than her previous ones, it was a different feeling. Then there was something that hit me while I was reading, I truly believe that Winslow is slowly rising as an author. As far as this novella goes, Vivian Winslow has all the ingredients to become a really fantastic author, she’s good, sure, no doubt, I wouldn’t give 3 stars (ok yes I’m cheap with stars, deal with it), but at the same time, if she ...more
Vivian this one surprised the hell out me! I loved the way you portrayed Dahlia’s character. It’s going to be SOOOOO hard to review this without spoilers flying everywhere but here goes….
This is the fourth installment of the Gilded Flower series. Now that Lily found her happily ever after with Alejandro it’s time to learn more about her twin sister Dahlia a.k.a. “D”. D is head over heals for Rodrigo, Alejandra's brother. They plan on having their own happily e
After reading about Lily, Dahlia's twin, in the first three books of the Gilded Flower Series, I was always curious as to who Dahlia was and what she had been through. There are small glimpses and allusions to something that happened in her past but as the reader, you never really know what happened to her. Well in the first installment of Dahlia's story, Blue Dahlia, you get exactly that. Dahlia is living life and loving Rodrigo, her sexy Latin ma ...more

Having read the first trilogy of the Gilded Flower Series, I was rather anxious and excited to read more of Lily's wild child, twin sister, Dahlia.
Dahlia and Lily may be twins but they're very different from one another. Dahlia has a secret .....I'm burning to find out what it is!
In Tiger Lily, #3 in the Gilded series, Dahlia and Rodrigo hooked up and Blue Dahlia picks up from there. What does catch my attention though is the refer ...more

It's now Lily's twin sister Dahlia's story. Dahlia is the twin that seems to have the bad reputation. The girls come from a well known and respected society family, and have grown up to know all about appearances and doing as they are told. They are incredibly wealthy and have pretty much anything they want. Which isn't always the case, it wasn't with Lily, and it certai ...more
I had mixed feelings about Dahlia from the previous trilogy because of what she did to her sister. So, I really wasn’t a fan of hers until she met Rodrigo and started to fall in love. We got to see another side to her with the hint that there is something deep ...more
What lose end does she need to tie up? The fact that she's still married to Shane. Seven years ago, Dahlia's entire world fell apart and she ran for the hills and never looked b ...more
UPDATE: From the blog
So, for those of you who have read the Gilded Lily series, you've already met Dahlia. And if you're like me, you had already fallen in love with Rodrigo. But as you also probably know, Dahlia has a secret...one that she hasn't had the courage to tell Rodrigo about. And that secret is about to blow Dahlia's world wide open.
When Dahlia tries to 'do the right thing' and take ...more
Vivian Winslow writes THE hottest erotica I’ve ever read – and I’ve read a lot of this shiz. The best part is, it doesn’t read like just plain ol’ shagging; there’s as much emotion as there can be. It’s pretty damn good when you think about this from the perspective of a romance lover.
Dahlia Baron is in dee ...more
This was my first book by author Vivian Winslow. I have to say that I enjoyed the writing and plan to go back and read the others in this series.

Dahlia’s character has secrets that are revealed in bits and pieces. Once she is in California to confr ...more
Right off the bat I was sucked into the story. Dahlia has a secret past that she needs to take care of. She flies to California to confro ...more
I was excited to get the chance to read Dahlia's story, after I got an opportunity to read Lily's story a few months back. The first thing that stood out to me was how well this story seemed to flow versus the books in Lily's portion of the series. With that said, the Dahlia we have in this story is very different from the Dahlia we met in Lily's story, who in the beginning of the entire series seemed to be more open and carefree. In this story, Dahlia ...more
Life is a crazy journey and this story is no different. When trying to go one direction your heart can take you in another...or even back to when it first started beating for another. This is the ultimate happy ending story and absolutely loved the journey getting there.
With one relationship starting she can't move forward without ending the one that broke her heart and sent her running. Now having to face her pas ...more
Before continuing her relationship with Rodrigo, Dahlia makes a trip to see Shane, a blast from her past, to take care of some unfinished business and deal with a tremendous loss after seven years. I was torn beween Rodrigo and Shane, but I understood her choice. I just feel things will not end well for Shane. I guess we will find out in the next boo ...more
I would have liked to have a longer story and more drama but overall it's a good story.
I was given a copy of this book from the author for an hones ...more
Dahlia Baron is in a social, emotional, and legal mess. When she returned to New York from a fling in California, she thought her problems would disappear once she was in the protective folds of her family. The Baron’s of New York have wealth, influence, and social standing to spare; more than enough to help her forget the past and provide a future.
Dahlia didn’t expect Rodrigo Cruz to propose, but he did and she accepted, without much forethought. The Cruz family is from t ...more
I’m pleasantly surprised with the fact that the book is fast paced, easy to follow, and begins with a promising plot. Definitely appreciative of the fact that the story moves along quickly and doesn’t drag on.
The characters are easy to understand and are so believable I could picture myself being friends with these women. Vivian did a wonderful job at creating fun, upbeat characters that add to the plot instead of taking from it.
The opening scene introduce ...more
