What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

In one colossally bad day, my boss fires me so he can give my job to his nephew, I find my boyfriend cheating on me, and—when being human is just too painful—I accidentally shift and trash my own apartment. My inner cat is apparently offended by table lamps.

Then my grandfather falls and breaks his arm, and I head back to Silver Springs to help him.

Or maybe I run back to Silver Springs…

But I won’t be there long.

My boss and my ex-boyfriend might be total jerks, but maybe there’s something really unlovable about me. I definitely don’t fit into sweet Silver Springs.

Blake – Mr. Bossy

When Lily’s car breaks down on the side of the road in Silver Springs, I’ve got the solution to all her problems—from towing her car with my truck to giving her a job at Hot Wheels, my brand-new garage. Easy.

When I finally convince her to come work with me and my ‘brothers’, she lights up the auto shop with her sassy personality.

Too bad she thinks I’m bossy when I’m just trying to help…

Dylan – Mr. Charming

Watching Blake and Lily is painful. Sparks fly in every way when the two of them are together. Sometimes they fight. Sometimes they lock eyes like they want to hop on top of the Honda and lick each other.

I’ve loved Lily since we were kid, but she’s always snubbed me. Once she reveals it’s her own insecurities that kept her from ever kissing me, though, I’m determined to show her just how much I adore her… If only I can convince her what I feel is real.

Archer – Mr. Nerd

I’ve always been the quiet geek in our group. Blake’s always tried to boss Lily, Dylan’s always tried to kiss her. Lily and I have always had a comfortable friendship.

But now we’re all grown-up. I’m the same nerd I always was, but my new app has gone viral. I could go anywhere—but I choose to be here in Silver Springs, with my brothers and Hot Wheels.

And with Lily

Then her past—and all her insecurities—careens into Silver Springs and tries to wreck our new love.

Will the four of us finally fight for what we want—and win our happily-ever-after together?

Thoughts on Tiger Lily

I have never read any of the other Spell Library Books, but after picking up this ARC, I am backtracking and indulging in the whole set!

This was a sweet Paranormal Romance, one that brought ‘once friends’ and ‘almost enemies’ together in the most delicious and sickeningly sappy type of way.

The Tiger Lily herself is snarky and a bit prickly, if incredibly insecure. Mind you, she has her reasons, and they make sense. Far too much sense, really. With a painful (though not horrific) past and recent slaps to both her heart and her pocket book, all she wants to do is go home and take care of her Grandfather – the man who raised her as his own and loved her through the trials and tears of her youth. Her granddad is the kind of papa anyone would love to have, fierce, determined, witty, loving and open…. if at times a bit lovingly deceitful. I adored him!

As for the guys? They are a pack of misfit dogs (really!) too perfect to really compare, and they all want Lily – they always have. It’s charming.

This book is a smile in print from, the kind of romance you read when you want your heart to grin and your teeth to hurt from the sweetness, even if there are a few raisins in the chocolate. It’s quick, delightful and a guaranteed HEA.
