It was a nice book, I'm not sure if it was up to par with the rest of the series. I liked Lilly, I liked the idea of her story. It felt really obvious at the beginning with Preston and Katherine, it didn't seem to have the same unknown elements as Jade & Garret. I liked Reed and his story...I'm just hopeful that the next book is better and has more interesting elements.

4.5 Stars!

Oh my goodness, I totally forgot how much I love the books about the Kensington’s. You have to start with the first series which is the Jade series and I know there are a lot of books in the series but trust me when I say they are great books and a story that will keep you very engrossed the entire time.

If you have read the other books you know Lilly to be the daughter of billionaire Pearce Kensington and the half-sister of Garrett Kensington. She is all grown up now and just startin

Great story

I loved the book, although alot of it sounded too much like her brother, Garrett s story. So glad she didn't date the douche any longer and ended up with Reed! And cut her bitchy mother off!!

Terrific! Ms Everhart does not disappoint. Another excellent book! Follows storyline from the Jade and Kensington series both fantastic. I feel like these characters are old friends and part of my life . If you are meeting the Kensington clan for the first time and you enjoyed it...treat yourself to the full series, starting with the Jade series then the Kensingtons, jn that get the full impacts of the fantastic story. Looking forward to the second "Lilly" book. Still would like t

OMG!!!!! The Jade series is by far my all time favorite series EVER!!!! So when I saw there was a spin off for Lilly I had to read. I loved Lilly and her innocence to all that was going on around her. She was vulnerable and kind. This book envoked so much emotions. Laughter, anger, resentment. The only thing I hated was that Lilly had no growth, she still had the mindset of the 7 year old girl we was introduced to in the Jade Series. And what was up with Jade and Garrett kids not aging.

I absolutely loved this book. I'm glad Lilly ended up with who she did. I'm glad she cut ties with her mom she's such a bitch. And I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book if there's going to be one.

If you enjoyed both the Jade, and the Kensington series, Lilly is a must read. You'll get to know a young adult Lilly, plus have the added bonus of all the characters you've grown fond off from the previous two series.

Read this book

Lilly is a great book. Can't wait for the next one. Allie Everhart does a great job telling the story. You need too read The Jade Series & Kensingtons so you get the full context. Both series are excellent
