Reviewed by Linda: 5 stars

White Lilies by Samantha Christy


Fate . . . Faith . . . Family.
Skylar Mitchell didn’t believe in any of them.
She never wanted a real boyfriend. She never wanted her own kid.
When she watched her sister get destroyed by the man she loved, she vowed it wouldn’t happen to her.
Don’t fall in love.
Don’t become attached.
Don’t let yourself feel.
Easy, right?
Griffin and Erin Pearce had the perfect life. With the perfect house. And the perfect jobs.
What they didn’t have was the perfect baby.
Skylar never counted on meeting Erin.
She never imagined finding this wonderful best friend who would change the way she looked at the world.
And she certainly never dreamed of falling in love with her best friend’s husband.
Especially while being their surrogate.
She also never counted on fate ripping everything away from her.
A story about unconditional love, heartbreaking loss, and undying friendship.
Note to reader: This book is a standalone novel. It is the second book in a series that follows three sisters.
Review: 5 Stars
I received this book for an honest review. I read the first book in this series and this one is great.
Do you believe in fate? I think people come into our lives for reasons we may not understand at the time.
Sklyar Mitchell is a successful chef, but she is lost herself in drinking and men. She wants to be a better person. She has an attitude of go big or go home. She immediately stops drinking and sleeping with men and decides to do the most selfless act for another person; she becomes their surrogate.
Erin and Griffin want to complete their family. Skylar decides to become their surrogate. Erin and Skylar become best friends. Erin is the person you meet and it feels like you have known her forever. She has a huge caring heart and is their friendship evolves easily, except for Skylar’s feelings for Griffin.
During a heartbreaking loss the characters still believe in fate, faith, and family. Now, everyone must cope with the tragedy.
“A person can never be replaced. But life goes on.”
The story was well written. The flow and growth of the characters was natural. The chemistry was off the charts hot. The banter between the characters was passionate and full of love.
I loved this book. I read this book in one day. I couldn’t put it down, even though it was breaking my heart. I cried big, ugly tears, laughed a lot and cried some more!
The author did a wonderful job of writing about a difficult topic. I don’t want to give away any part of the story, but this review was difficult to write. If you believe in soul mates, love, passion, acceptance, and friendship then read this book. You may want to add a side of tissues, wine, and chocolate.
I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
