Title: Midnight Lily
Series: Signs of Love
Author: Mia Sheridan
Release date: 1st March, 2016
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.
Midnight Lily is unlike anything I have previously read from Mia Sheridan. It does however contain the core elements synonymous to her books that I love so much. Atmospheric writing, wonderfully generous protagonists and an epic love story at the heart of it all.
"We will never be perfect or without flaws, the lives we've been given are not like that. But, Lily, in my heart, you are perfect for me. Perfectly mine. And I'm yours."
Given the amount and variety of books we read it's wonderful feeling to still be genuinely surprised by novels. Mia Sheridan achieves this with Midnight Lily. It's a roller coaster of emotions, at times the situation is a desperately sad one, but I was uplifted by the hope & love at the core of the story.
It's takes a better reviewer than I to describe the story without spoiling it for the reader. It has to be read, to be felt, to experience the wonder (and mind-f*ck) of it all. Midnight Lily is one Mia Sheridan's edgiest books to date. I have replayed the story and characters in my mind countless times since I've finished reading. If that is not the sign of a great book, I'm not sure what is.
"I'm not afraid of the darkness. I've been there before. I'll step into it willingly, unhesitatingly, and I'll come find you. No one else could make that promise and mean it, Lily. No one. No one except me."
