A man is watching her, she's used to it; paparazzi watch
her all the time, but he seems different. He's also young
and handsome; she watches him watching her. He was on the
plane she boarded in New York. Lily Fowler is incognito
in Maui; she left after her apartment was ransacked and
nothing was taken, but she's actually running away from
her father's evil girlfriend, Pilar. Lily has uncovered
some secrets that could get her in serious trouble this
time. The man who is watching her is also in Maui; his
name is Max Coleman and his client his paying him a lot
of money to get something that Lily has...
TAMING LILY is the third and last instalment in The
Fowler Sisters series, and while the suspense angle
has been an intrinsic part of the story arc, it can
easily be read as a standalone as Ms. Murphy supplies the
essential details. Lily is the oldest Fowler sister and,
unlike sisters Rose and Violet, has never had any
interest in the family cosmetics business. Lily is a
party girl, that's her sole purpose in life; she's brash,
wild, irreverent. That's what everyone expects of her,
and that's what she gives them. Lily trusts no one and
she never relinquishes control. Until Max shows up; he's
an unlikely saviour, the knight in shining armour she
never expected to meet. He's unlike any man she's ever
met because she has shown him the real Lily, without any
Because of the mystery and secrecy surrounding Max and
Lily's interactions, TAMING LILY has the feel of an old
50s film noir albeit with plenty of sizzling, super hot
sex scenes. As Lily is away from her usual playground the
veil is slowly lifted on the reasons for Lily's chaotic
behaviour and some of her secret talents will influence
her future choices. Lily blooms as she gets finally
allows herself to get close to someone who sees her for
who she is.
Ms. Murphy's writing is as polished and as beautifully
descriptive as ever, however the suspense side of the
story was wrapped up a tad too quickly and tidily, in my
opinion. However if you're looking for a very well
written, very steamy summer read, TAMING LILY is just the
book for you!

Maya Banks, the anticipated finale in New York
bestselling author Monica Murphyís sexy contemporary
series about three fiery and determined sisters with their
