Before I begin:
We’re at Lillian & Marcus’ book 📖 and I’m so excited for it! 👏🏽 Secrets Of A Summer Night teased their pairing so hard, I’m salivating 🤤 for it! 😂 Don’t know 🤷🏽♀️ what else will happen, but know I like these too!
Lillian is Daisy’s sister, another “Wallflower”, so I know she’ll get a book 😂 Maybe we’ll meet her match 😋 The part where the perfume is called magic in a bottle essentially reminds me of my best friend and I when we were younger 😂
Prologue- Chapter 5
Even from the Prologue, loving the sisterly bond between Lillian and Daisy 👏🏽❤️ Reminds me of my sister and I 👯♀️😂
Looking forward to more of them 😂 Lillian is already a memorable character, I look forward to learning more about Daisy 🥰
Marcus with Livia ❤️ The sister bonds 👯♀️🥰 Getting, much welcomed, girl power vibes ✊🏽
Marcus’ disdain for Lillian will only make his fall harder and I’m looking forward to it! 👏🏽😂🥰😘🤗 Interesting how the Bowmans need the Westcliffs 😂 Sets the story up nicely! 🤗
Remember to use ||!
So this 1st section felt like a continuation of Secrets of a Summer Night 👏🏽 Much of the same dynamic exists with out characters, just more of it! 👏🏽 || We learn the stipulations of the Bowman visit || 👏🏽 It’s believable and makes for some fun times ahead!
A down side to listening to audiobooks and reading the ebook is I consistently get lost and reread parts 😂🤦🏼♀️ It happened again with this book 📖 I listened until Chapter 6, then reread on ebook before I realized 😂🤦🏼♀️ Once I realized, I jumped back on audiobook 😂😂😂
In Chapter 5, get to meet the infamous Sebastian St. Vincent 👏🏽 I know he’ll have a good character arc, but, in the beginning, it doesn’t leave a good impression…
Accectually read to chapter 6 😂
Chapter 6 – Chapter 11
Got a little messy there 😂 Checked in at Chapter 6 not Chapter 5 😂😂 Oh well, that happened. If anything, it made me reread good scenes, so I was entertained 😂😂😂 In this section got more interactions between Lillian and Marcus ❤️ And get St. Vincent 😂😏
Lillian and Westcliff draw closer here 😏 Still feel their animosity though.
Chapter 12 – Chapter 16
Just as things heat up between Westcliff and Lillian, they fo with St. Vincent too! 🔥 St. Vincent’s character is interesting 🤔 Like a love triangle? Westcliff never comes out and directly states his feelings, but it can be inferred from his actions.
Lillian and Daisy start to receive Mercedes’ education and sponsorship 🙌🏽
Chapter 17 – Chapter 22
In this section, Lillian and Marcus DTR (define the relationship 😏) They don’t get intimate until Chapter 22 but their interactions are fun 🤗 Their story is relatively light but I anticipate some push back leading up to and at the wedding from Marcus’ Countess mother 🤔
Chapter 23 – Epilogue
This section was action-packed!? 😬 So much happens and Marcus and Lillian’s wedding is off page, which is fitting within the scope of their unconventional relationship. Know St. Vincent and Evie get Devil in Winter ❄️, the next book, and I wonder how he will be redeemed 🤔 For majority of the book, St. Vincent was likeable 🤗
End of book 📖
Nice 👍🏽 that in the epilogue it’s not Lillian and Marcus getting married 👏🏽 Love the wallflowers girl group ❤️ so loved seeing (most of) them 🙌🏽 The inclusion of St. Vincent was an intriguing choice, successfully teased book 3, Devil In Winter! Already know some things but curious how it all comes together! 🥰 Initially thought 💭 St. Vincent’s female guest was Georgiana, but now I think its Evie 👏🏽 That would definitely tease Devil In Winter 😂 Definitely would be out of character for Evie!
