Review: Lily's Law by Danielle Torella

My clients call me Lily... Lily Stargazer.
No I'm not a stripper or a street walker...

But I sure as hell like to push it deep.

I call the shots, I take control, that’s how it goes. Don't like it? There's the door.

Everyone has a dark side, I wear mine proudly. Sure I have my secrets and a past, just like everyone else, but only he knows where I come from and he doesn't think I belong here. 
Do I?

But even those who seem to be plain as day, have the darkest sides of all and when the lights go out and the bulb is changed, they can't hide it much longer.

I know who I am and I am not everyone’s shot of tequila...
But I sure as hell ain't a fine wine.

4 Star Review by Jen Skewes

This is the first book that I have read by this author.  When I first read the blurb I was very intrigued and needed to find out more.  This is the story of Lily, a tattoo artist with an attitude who has a wall up that is so thick it would take a bulldozer to break it down.  Lawson is the guy that manages to do that.  They come from two different worlds.  He’s a business man who grew up with money.  But you know what they say, opposites attract.  And this story is the perfect example of how true that is.

When we first meet Lily I was not sure what to make of her.  She didn’t have much growing up.   But she managed to escape her hometown and make something of herself.  She is a successful tattoo artist who owns her own shop, has a beautiful home and in control of her life.  If there was ever a female alpha she is it.  She is feisty, take no crap kind of girl who knows how to stick up for herself and be in control.  She is not into love or relationships and does not sleep with the same guy more than once.  She is the female equivalent of a man whore.   But when she meets Lawson Coal he sees beneath the rough edges and sees that underneath there is more to Lily Stargazer than most people can see.  He sees the badass chick that she wants everyone to see but he also sees the softer side to her.  He wants her and he is not about to give up, no matter how much she pushes him away. 

Lawson is the rich, preppy guy that is the complete opposite of Lilly.  He owns his own wine business and comes from money, something that Lily didn’t have growing up.  When he first meets her at her shop he sees something in her and no matter how hard he tries he cannot stop thinking about her.  He is opening a new business in her town and has a business deal for her.  And no it not of the sexual nature.  But he hopes that with this deal he will be able to spend more time with her, get to know her and make her his.  The only issue is that Lily is not the type of girl to settle down.  But will Lawson Coal be the guy to change her views on dating?

I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down.  As mentioned earlier I had a hard time with Lily at first.  I have no issues with her not wanting to settle down and wanting to sleep around.  I mean if men can do it why not women?   But I think at some point it may have been too much for me.  At times I wanted to smack some sense into her because she completely frustrated me.  But in the end I really loved her character and wanted her and Lawson tow work things out.  He saw something in her and I loved that he never gave up.  Even if at times I wanted him to walk away.  But Law has his own past and secrets that he is hiding.  And being with Lily helps him to open up for the first time.  It’s as if she is his light and brings him happiness that he hasn’t felt. 

Overall this was a great read.  It was missing something for me and I think that it may have been that I felt like some issues didn’t seem to be cleared up.  But overall I really enjoyed it and look forward to more from this author.
