I was provided a copy of the BOOK by the Author for an honest review.

WOW just finish reading this book, and love it, love the characters, I have read the first three book in the series, and I love them all, the first three book of the series is the story of Lily, that's how we get to know that she has a twin sister, that's where we also get to meet the Cuban brothers, and that's where we also get to know that Dahlia have secrets, this book is from Dahlia point of view, and I have to say that I love it, I am gone keep this short since I don't want to give anything away.

In the third book of the series, we know that Dahlia is with Rodrigo, and that they are really happy, we also know that she have a secret, and she is afraid to tell him, but oh boy when you find out what that secret is, you gone have a moment of what the hell really, that's whats going on, let me just say that I was not expecting for that to be the secret, you just gone have to read the book to find out what it is.

The story begging with Dahlia and Rodrigo, they are talking and hanging out in the city, they are so happy with each other, that they are thinking of moving in together, when Rodrigo say bye to Dahlia and ask her to go to Miami Dahlia agree, that's when she talk to her mother asking her for someone address, someone that her mother never though that Dahlia would want to see, when her mother gives her the Address she find herself on an air plain, on the way to see this person, but what Dahlia was not expecting was to feel the way she felt about this person, that's when she knew that she needed to make a decision about Rodrigo and this man who goes by the name of Shane, who will she choose.

I really love and enjoy reading this series, now I cant wait to read the next book in the series, I have to say that I become ADDICTED to it, Author Vivian Winslow THANK YOU for this awesome series and this amazing characters love them.




“Baby, you okay?” Rodrigo asks, tucking a stray strand of blond hair behind Dahlia’s ear.

She nods.

“You’ve been quiet since lunch.”

Dahlia stares vacantly at the painting in front of her. A Woman in the Sun—one of her personal favorites by Edward Hopper. She remembers taking a private tour of the Whitney Museum with her mother and sister Lily when she was six years old, and falling in love with his works. Something about the subject’s gaze filled her with a sense of curiosity. A desire to know the world through the artist’s eyes. That day, she picked up a sketchpad and didn’t put it down . . . until seven years ago.

Rodrigo runs his fingers down her cheek and gently lifts her chin to draw her gaze to him.

“Is it what your mom said?”

Dahlia shrugs.

“We don’t need your mother’s blessing. I thought it would be nice for her to get to know me, but in the end what she thinks doesn’t matter, does it?”

Dahlia shakes her head and smiles at Rodrigo. Any other man would’ve been intimidated by her mother or run off by her comments about Dahlia’s commitment issues. Ironic since it was her mother who brought them out in her. Besides, since meeting Rodrigo that day on Miami Beach, she knew in her heart he was the one for her. She firmly believed he was her second chance at love.

“You’re right, it doesn’t,” Dahlia says emphatically. She reaches up and caresses Rodrigo’s stubble that inevitably grows in every afternoon. Her heart skips a beat as she gazes into his dark eyes, and her desire begins to pool in her core. She stopped looking for her mother’s approval a long time ago. No reason why she should care now.

Grabbing his hand, she says, “Come with me.”




Vivian Winslow was born and raised in Southern California. Before becoming a writer, she made a career out of moving around the world every couple of years thanks to her husband’s job. She currently lives in New York City with her husband and two elementary school age children, and is grateful to finally have a place to call home for more than two years. New York is the perfect city to indulge her love of shopping, the arts and especially food.

If she’s not at home writing or running around the city with her kids, you’ll most likely find her indulging in pizza on the Lower East Side or having a cocktail at her favorite bar in Alphabet City. That said, she’s still a California girl at heart and would gladly trade in her heels for a pair of flip-flops to catch a sunset on the beach. .
