Review: Gilded Lily

Staci Hart has done it again with Gilded Lily. She has this way of crafting words into this perfectly molded story that sucks you in and keeps you turning pages late into the night. Every time one of her books comes out, I know I’m going to have some tired days at work. 🙂 Totally worth it.

Gilded Lily is the story of Kash and Lila. She’s a high-profile celebrity wedding and event planner working on a series of events for a reality TV family (whom she can’t stand but is forced to tolerate). Kash is the gardener at the Longbourne floral shop.

Lila and Kash have never run in the same circles and, in fact, have never quite gotten along. He enjoys pushing her uptight buttons. She enjoys looking down her nose at him. However, when they’re thrown together and forced to cooperate for the success of Lila’s events, they realize that they are going to need to work together. And then when Lila’s life turns upside-down, Kash may be just what she needs…in more ways than one.

This book was so great! Another wonderful addition to the Austen series. I can’t wait for more!



They say there’s no such thing as perfect.
But I’ve built my life to perfection—the perfect boyfriend, the perfect apartment, the perfect career planning celebrity weddings. My job—my only job—is to make sure every event is absolutely and completely perfect.
What’s not perfect? Kash Bennet.
And I wish I didn’t find that so appealing.
I could have told you every perfectly imperfect thing about the gardener at Longbourne. Like his hair, lush and black and far too long. Or his nose, the flat bridge of a Greek god, bent a little like it’s been broken. Or his size. Beastly. Roped and corded with muscles, gleaming with sweat and peppered with dirt.
There’s no escaping him, not if I’m going to use his family’s flower shop for my events.
But nothing is what it seems. And in the span of a heartbeat, my perfect life is turned inside out.
They say the best way to get over somebody is to get under somebody new. When Kash offers his services to the cause, it sounds like the perfect plan.
What’s not part of the plan? Falling in love with the gardener.
But they were right—there’s no such thing as perfect.
And I’m the fool who finds out the hard way.
