Beautifully Unexpected

Beautifully Unexpected is typical Lily Morton – and I mean that in a good way.  It’s well-written, warm, funny and sexy, boasting two intensely likeable leads with terrific chemistry, plenty of her trademark snark – and a real punch in the feels towards the end. Magnus Carlsen QC is one of ...

The Quiet House

Lily Morton’s The Mysterious and Amazing Blue Billings introduced readers to the eponymous quirky and snarky York-based ghost-tour guide, and Levi Black, a cartoonist from London who, after the death of his mother and a bad break-up, moves to York after inheriting a house near the Minster from a d ...

Merry Measure

Lily Morton is one of my go-to authors whenever I’m looking for a sexy, funny, low-angst read, and in Merry Measure – a standalone Christmas romance – she delivers all those things and more.  It’s a charming friends-to-lovers story that’s full of warmth, humour and Christmas spirit (the b ...

Oz

Narrated by Joel Leslie Oz, the first book in Lily Morton’s Coming Home series, is loosely linked to her previous Mixed Messages trilogy but works perfectly well as a standalone.  If you’re familiar with the author’s work, you’ll find exactly the sort of thing you’ve come to expect; ch ...

Gideon

I love a great redemption story.  And if anyone needs redeeming, it’s Gideon Ramsay, a hard-partying, famous actor who is deeply in the closet.  He’s besties with Silas (Risk Taker and Oz), and Niall (his brother Milo’s partner) - with whom he also used to have sex.  Confused?  Don’t be ...

Rule Breaker

Narrated by Joel Leslie Rule Breaker, the first book in Lily Morton’s aptly named Mixed Messages series, is terrific.  Opposites attract when an emotionally closed-off lawyer falls for his long-suffering assistant, and despite its sometimes heavy subject matter and slightly taboo relationship, R ...

Milo

Friends, I’m torn.  If you follow my reviews, you already know Lily Morton’s Deal Maker is one of my favorite contemporary romances.  It’s chock full of my favorite things:  well-realized principal characters, funny and clever dialogue, vivid (amazing) settings, low-angst, hot sex, entertai ...

Risk Taker

In Risk Taker, the third entry in Lily Morton’s wholly entertaining and charming Mixed Messages series, we finally get Henry’s story.  He’s the charismatic and witty best friend of Gabe (Rule Breaker) who’s made memorable, scene stealing appearances in each of the previous instalments; fans ...
