Not For Me

I couldn’t get into this one at all. I gave up at 19%, read the epilogue and then called it a day.

Lily has had a rough time, divorcing her abusive ex, was a step in the right direction. Then everything in her life falls apart. Gerrit is a bartender who see Lily, and decides he wants her. Flirty commences, though it is low key. One hot night was all Lily would give, but Gerrit knew it wasn't enough! There was some seious hot times between the sheets, on a float....... but there was some danger and criminal stuff too. I really enjoyed this story!

The title intrigued me. Lily and Girett start as a typical one-night but their story is not typical.

Lily is dealing with what no woman wants to but she goes to a bar and gets her eyes and hormones in an uproar over Girett. So they sneak to have some fun.

Don't exchange numbers but she looks for him again because she's having a bad day and he knows how to make her feel good. But things get found out and this is where the excitement and adrenaline kick up. Not spoiling the story. But I adore Lily

This was a great short story! It was original. Lily meets Gerritt at a bar while he is bartending. They start flirting with each other and she ends up leaving the bar with him. They have a night full of sex. But Lily insists it be their last because she tells him she is bad news. What she doesn't tell him at that time is her ex-husband kidnapped her son, Nolan, and she has no idea where he is. So she is not capable of anything resembling love right now. But then she finds out that her ex-husband ...more

His voodoo Lily is a novella that is a part of the May flowers series. This story is short, mixed paced and an intriguing read. I read this book in one sitting and was satisfied throughout. I found the writing style easy to follow, the characters likeable and the storyline entertaining.

I got curious what a voodoo lily looked like or if it’s real that I googled it. I am glad that Gerrit got his Vodoo Lily, they may have an unusual start at their relationship but still the ended up together happily.

I was wondering what’s wrong with Lily at the start and I soon find out. She has finally found nd her luck in Gerrit who had helped her more so than her friends, may be it’s because he loved her and that’s a fact.

His Voodoo Lily by Alexis Adaire a five-star read that will have you booking tickets to Hell. This is such a surprise, its like two amazing stories wrapped up in one amazing novella, the first will take you on a journey through New Orleans, giving us a glimpse into Mardi Gras in the best way possible.

This was another quick but amazing story by Alexis Adaire. I have gotten to love her stories since the Flirt Club starting their themed stories. I love the May Flowers theme.

Lily has had a rough year. One night she just wants to forget it all. She meets Gerrit as he bartends and they hit it off. What started as an one night thing slowly becomes more. When she needs some help finding her son, she turns to Gerrit. Will they be able to make something work?

This was totally different but I loved it. When I read the blurb I wondered how so much plot was going to be covered in such a short book, but I shouldn’t have worried.
This was a brave and unique concept. The main female character trying to get her son back after he was taken by her ex. Gerrit is the complete package, alpha and super hero. I loved his instant connection to Lily and unwavering love for her son, even before he’d met him.
The ending was perfect, I loved seeing them as a big happy

Mardi Gras, a bartender and a voodoo lily.

Lily is in a bad place. She’s had a three year dry spell and on Mardi Gras, remedies that with Gerrit, the bartender she hooks up with.

Gerrit is a bartender with out much, except mad skills in bed and a decent sort.

Only, it’s more than just a hook up, because Lily is looking for her son Nolan.

Drama, New Orleans style.

I really enjoy reading these themed series that the Flirt Club write. This is one of the May Flower one. This particular story is about Lily trying to locate and get her son back. She pushes away her best friend one night and decides to give herself a break for one night. She meets Geritt the bartender. Great short story with a happy ever after outcome to an old abusive relationship.

Gerrit and Lily

Great story! Mystery, kidnapping, extortion, and love. This was fun and I couldn't put it down until I finished it. Gerrit is awesome, I love patient men. Lily had a lot to overcome but got her ish together once she figured out what was best for her. Definitely recommend.
