ASIN: B01A0DLBOUA standalone romance from the New York Times bestselling author of Archer's Voice.
Holden Scott is the prince of professional football. At least he was before he lost it all . . . or more to the point, before he threw it all away. Now he's out of a job, out of the public's good graces, and perhaps just a little out of his mind. So when a friend offers up his remote lodge in the wilds of Colorado, giving Holden some time away to get his life back on track, he can hardly say no. The last thing he expects is to see a beautiful girl in the woods—one wearing a white, lace dress who appears in the moonlight, and leaves no footprints behind. Is she a dream? A ghost? A product of his muddled imagination? Or something entirely different?
Midnight Lily is the haunting love story of two lost souls reaching for each other in the dark. A tale of healing, acceptance, and the worlds we create to protect our own hearts. It is a story of being lost, of being found, and of being in the place between.
THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY VIRGO. Non-Paranormal, New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Cover: Pretty but isn't particularly speical or stand out.
I've read a few of Mia Sheridan's books now, but Archer's Voice remains my absolute favourite.
And unfortunately nothing has quite matched up to it.
And it's the same with Midnight Lily.
I was really looking forward to this release but I find myself quite disappointed by it.
It was just kind of strange.
Holden and Lily meet in the forest. Or at least Holden thinks they do....he's not entirely sure that she's real, and not a figment of his drug induced imagination.
It was a very fast moving 'romance'. I don't think there was any time for me to truly grow attached to these characters because I didn't really get to know them. I was told things about them, I don't think I was truly shown them.
It was a bit of a weird storyline, and in parts, felt close to ridiculous.
I felt parts were a troubling portratal of both mental illness and the grieving process.
Over all, this book was a strange one. I didn't hate it, but I was disappointed, and I didn't love it.
For me, I think Archer's Voice will just always be my favourites.
