Perfect for fans of Christina Lauren, Emma Chase, and Maya Banks, the anticipated finale in New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy’s sexy contemporary romance series about three fiery and determined sisters with their own ideas about life and love. I’m in trouble. Again. And instead of facing my problems head on, I’ve run away. Far away this time, and no one can catch me—not my two younger sisters, Violet and Rose, not my father, my grandmother, or that witch Pilar who wants to take control of my family’s cosmetics company. Now I’m in Hawaii, enjoying the sun and the sand and water, where nobody knows the hot mess known as Lily Fowler. And I’m loving every minute of it. But someone is watching me. Following me. He’s gorgeous. And soon we’re talking, and against all my instincts, I reveal bits and pieces of myself to Max. It feels good, though I know he can’t be the man for me. These sudden feelings we share are way too complicated, too fraught, too intense. Then everything explodes and I’m forced to return home. My intentions have always been true, but now everyone’s mad at me. I don’t know who to turn to anymore . . . except to Max. He’s who I want to trust. But I’m not so sure I should. Maybe it’s worth the risk—and what-ifs be damned. . . .
The third and final book in the series, gives us the hot mess older sister Lily.  She's a media darling and also a mix between the socialites they love to hate.  Having done something she doesn't think anyone will believe her about, she runs off to Hawaii with the idea of hiding out until she figures out how to handle the mess she's made.

In walks Max, he's been hired to retrieve a laptop that his client claims is stolen, however we all suspect she's lying, but Max is more than happy to take this case on because he's become somewhat obsessed with the mark.  I loved how they were together from the get go.  Se noticed him and he obviously noticed her and from there we get one hell of a steamy vacation romance.

They have great heat and  chemistry and they both go into the affair knowing it's only going to be for the time they are here and yet as if develops they wonder if they had met somewhere else would they be able to work it out.  Lily especially wants to use this as a distraction from her problems back home and she's all for having a brief fling that will help her clear her head and give her great orgasms at the same time.

I really loved how as they hung out and had sex the layers kept coming off, that they became more intimate, stepped back from the games and began to really see themselves as well as each other.

Very sexy, very steamy between the two of them.  As Lily pushed the boundaries of what she normally accepts and Max learnt how far he could go while keeping his secret.  As the story progressed and e went back to reality and their worlds collide and Max's secret comes out I loved that Lily was strong enough to fight back and yet wanted to let him in. I loved lily as a character because even though she was a hot mess at times, she clearly loved her family, she just wasn't sure how to share that without being hurt.

The family dynamic and the relationship the girls have is good to see. I loved that Rose called b.s whenever she felt like she needed to and that Violet was still so strong and clearly in command.   They were awesome to see them all together working to save their legacy and yet accepting of Lily and her mess while pushing for her to embrace her truest self.

Awesome read, it went by very quickly.
Happy Reading my loves,
