3.5 Baby Momma Drama Stars
We all knew at the end of Until Trevor that Until Lilly would be a crazy train times ten. In many ways this book was crazy with all the secrets, psychos and eye-fuckery. However, I thought it fell a bit flat. I’m not one for baby momma drama and this book was jam packed. Clearly Jules was a certifiable bimbo when we learned she hid Lilly’s pregnancy from Cash but until you’ve read this, you’ve seen nothing yet. She’s not just a home-wrecker more like life-wrecker and unfortunately Lilly often takes the brunt of this psychos antics. It helps to see this new fatherly side of Cash, no longer the scandalous bachelor of his past, though his sanity is in question after seeing what a certifiable loon Jules is.
“I’m going to make you fall in love with me again.”-Cash
A chance encounter at a trampoline park brings Cash together with Lilly once again. Imagine his surprise when he sees a little girl with Lilly calling her mommy that looks just like him. Immediately Cash catches on and knows Ashlyn is his. He handles the situation remarkably well considering. Cash doesn’t make demands of Lilly or propose threats, instead he wants answers. Well, in his mind answers = Lilly and their daughter in his life.
I really enjoyed the children in this book they really added a new turn of drama for the characters. The instant connection between the kids brought on some teary eyed moments, especially with Jax looking out for Ashlyn.
Not only does Lilly have to take crap from everyone who assumes she’s just another Jules, she also has to deal with Cash and his persistence. He lost Lilly once and he knows the mistake he made, he refuses to lose her and his daughter.
”Want to play a game?”
“What kind of game?”
“Hmm… I don’t know. Last time we played Naked House Day, you almost killed me.”
“Death by cock.” - Cash and Lilly
I do wish Lilly put up more of a fight when Cash started laying down the way things would be. After all the hurt and suffering he caused her (even if it all wasn’t his fault) I felt she gave in a bit too fast. I can understand her wanting her daughter in her father’s life but everything just seemed to move so fast. Add in Jules ruining her life and I can’t believe she didn’t run off.
“I fucking hate this… I hate that if I had chosen you, I wouldn’t have Jax. I hate what I did, and that I lost you and Ashlyn.”-Cash
Overall I really enjoyed this story but still not as much as Until November. I found there were many errors and editing mistakes that did piss me off at times but about 2/3 through it seemed to clean up more. Many of the past characters did make appearances and there was a great set up for Nico’s upcoming story. Can’t wait to see who gets this scary bad-boy to settle down. Love this series…
