Shel: If you’ve followed the blog you know that I’ve been a huge fan of Staci Hart for years.  I’ve enjoyed all of her novels and sworn that I loved many of them, because I did. Tonight, though, I think I’ve found my number one favorite—Gilded Lily. The combination of Lila and Kash hit all the right notes for me. Lila's hard exterior and Kash's laissez fare demeanor played well off each other and their falling in love was simply delightful. Court: YES! Her writing is so good, and her series are ones that we really have fell for every single time. And each of them offers something different...every single time! This one, though, I realllllly like this series!

Shel: I loved getting to know them separately--they were interesting all on their own-- and then to see them mesh so well together was (chef’s kiss) perfect. But it wasn’t just their story that made this such a good read to me—it was also getting to know the Bennets more.  The parts when the parents interact with Kash was sweet and funny and to also have the siblings all continually band together was heartwarming and added to all the good vibes I was feeling...vibes that even terrible, manipulative, horrible characters couldn’t steal (the villains by the way were perfectly villainous in every way). Court: Good vibes are my fav...but Shel always says it so well! This world is a delight to be in, and I will say it again...this band of characters because I always tell you how much I love great supporting characters really make our hearts happy over here.

Shel: I adored this opposites attract romance. It was sweet and sexy and fun and has me very eager to see who can bring Marcus to his knees. Court: Ditto, babe. I can't wait for more, and hope y'all get this one and the first one because you will not regret it!

They say there’s no such thing as perfect.
But I’ve built my life to perfection—the perfect boyfriend, the perfect apartment, the perfect career planning celebrity weddings. My job—my only job—is to make sure every event is absolutely and completely perfect.
What’s not perfect? Kash Bennet.
And I wish I didn’t find that so appealing.
I could have told you every perfectly imperfect thing about the gardener at Longbourne. Like his hair, lush and black and far too long. Or his nose, the flat bridge of a Greek god, bent a little like it’s been broken. Or his size. Beastly. Roped and corded with muscles, gleaming with sweat and peppered with dirt.
There’s no escaping him, not if I’m going to use his family’s flower shop for my events.
But nothing is what it seems. And in the span of a heartbeat, my perfect life is turned inside out.
They say the best way to get over somebody is to get under somebody new. When Kash offers his services to the cause, it sounds like the perfect plan.
What’s not part of the plan? Falling in love with the gardener.
But they were right—there’s no such thing as perfect.
And I’m the fool who finds out the hard way.

Everyone hates parts of their job.
Maybe it’s the paperwork. Maybe it’s the day-to-day grind. Maybe it’s that client who never knows what they want, or the guy who always cooks fish in the microwave.
But not me. I love every corner of the Longbourne Flower Shop, every flower, every petal, every stem. I love the greenhouse, and I love Mrs. Bennet, my boss. I love creating, and I love being a florist. I don’t hate anything at all.
Except for Luke Bennet.
The Bennet brothers have come home to help their mom save the flower shop, and Luke is at the helm. His smile tells a tale of lust, loose and easy. He moves with the grace of a predator, feral and wild. A thing unbridled, without rules or constraint. When he comes home to save Longbourne, I almost can’t be mad at him. Almost.
He doesn’t remember that night I’ll never forget. That kiss, touched with whiskey and fire. It branded me like a red-hot iron. But it meant nothing to him.
Everyone hates part of their job, and I hate Luke Bennet.
Because if I don’t, I’ll fall in love with him.

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
