Goodreads Summary:

"It was Easter Sunday; the day Lilly's life went from safe and comfortable to dangerously unfamiliar. Her transformation takes her from a small town girl having an affair with a low ranked gangster in the Montiago crime syndicate, to a woman of grace and fortitude married to the head of the organization.Easter's Lilly is an inspired journey from the idyllic to the darker side of self-discovery. Read as the over-privileged brothers embark on their journey that twists and turns down the road of unbridled passion in this first book of the series."

Wow! This was a page turner for sure! It was extremely fast paced (sometimes it seemed almost too fast paced - I felt like my head was spinning in parts of it!) Lilly, the main character, was the daughter of a police officer. Yet she falls in love with a drug dealer and gets pregnant with his baby. But then he is killed. Another drug dealer offers to marry her and take care of both her and the baby so she agrees, but she falls in love with someone else...basically, she's kind of a mess!

Honestly, this was not my usual reading fare. I found it a little too dramatic and too violent for my tastes. BUT....if you like a thrilling action packed page turner - then this is definitely a book for you!! Also, it is the first in a trilogy! Brother Number 3 and Relatively Close are the next two in the series.

And now here is your chance to win a copy of this exciting read - 1 copy of the e-book:
