Good Book! Lantern Lake is the third and final novella in The Billionaire Bachelors Trilogy by Lily Everett. This series is about three billionaire bachelors, Leo, Zane and Cooper, who happen to fall in love amidst the magical ambiance of Sanctuary Island. Their good friend Miles fell in love on the island and is now getting married. Each bachelor is on the mystical isle preparing for his romantic, beach wedding. This story is actually a second chance romance and Cooper is in the hot spot. Cooper felt the anger move through his body as he watched the former love of his life, Vivian Banks, walk down the aisle. He quickly put a plan of revenge into place as the old memories and deep hurt encapsulated him. Vivian left him at the alter ten years ago, without even leaving a note. They were in their last year of college, in love and she disappeared from his life on their never to be wedding day. Vivian, a former debutante, has lived a lifetime guilt, hurt and anguish since leaving Cooper years ago. Young, naive, and scared, she cowered to her psycho parents and became their pawn in a get rich quick scam. Now she is finally free, and extremely hopeful that Cooper can forgive her and maybe love her again. This is a great story. It is chock full of twists and turns in all the right places. This is a quick-read that flows nicely from beginning to end. Don't pass on the opportunity to read The Billionaire Bachelors Trilogy by Lily Everett.

Storyline plodded along like a 100 year old farm horse....not worth the 3.00 for 79 pages. Only rate at one star, but not even worth that.

Billionaire, Miles Harrington (Island Road), is getting married and has laid a wager to three of his fellow Billionaire friends. The prize? His custom helicopter and restricted access to the helipad at the Biltmore Club. "I am betting that each of you will find the course of your life forever altered by your trip to Sanctuary Island. In fact, I'm wiling to bet each of you will find love there. -- Whoever is still single and unattached by the time I march down the aisle gets the helicopter." This is the third book to the trilogy series. Leo (The Fireside Inn) and Zane (Bonfire Beach) are already deeply entranced by ladies on the island, but Miles knows he's going to have to get crafty with Cooper. Ten years ago, Cooper was left "standing at the alter" by the love of his life. He's harbored some serious anger issues towards her since. Vivian, a longtime childhood friend of Miles, left the only man she loved to appease her controlling parents & entered into a loveless marriage that left her with nothing. Now, face-to-face, emotions run high. Situations are reversed. Revenge and guilt are nearly overwhelming. Will Cooper win the wager and walk away with Miles's helicopter? Or did Mile's carefully orchestrated setup pay off?

Another sweet installment to Lily Everett's Billionaire Bachelor's series where billionaire Miles Harrington is playing matchmaker for his three best friends. This third book in the series, LANTERN LAKE, is actually a second chance story for his friends, Cooper Haynes and Vivian Blake. Miles introduced them in college, where they fell in deeply in love and planned to marry, but they were both left with broken hearts due to outside forces. Miles and his new bride, Greta have asked them both to be in the bridal party hoping to reunite these broken-hearted lovers. At first Cooper is still to angry to do anything but plot his revenge and Vivian is feeling too guilty to do anything but wait for his wrath to hit. But the attraction and deep connection they felt for one another wins out over the pain when neither can resist the chance for just one more night together before walking away once again. Or can they truly let the love of their life walk away again? The ownership of Miles' prized helicopter is still hanging in the balance for the answer to this question. Ms. Everett has given us another sweet, love story for those of us who need our quick romantic fixes this hits the spot just right! ~I received this eBook free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This has been a wonderful series.  The characters are so much more than just your average billionaires.  This finish to the series wraps everything up very nicely and the whole series feels very complete.  This installment is different because the 2 main characters had a previous relationship.  That added a whole new dimension to it.  The characters had to work through the past before they could move forward.  I loved the ups and downs.  The relationship was reality based, showing that everything is not wine and roses but that  two people that care about each other and want it bad enough can work through everything else.  The writing was smooth and clean and I can't wait to read more from this author.

What a powerful conclusion to a whirlwind e-novella trilogy to introduce us to Sanctuary Island. This is the final book of three, which follows Cooper and Vivian's story. What made this story different, is that Cooper and Vivian have a past which left Cooper completely demolished. The story begins at the Wedding of Miles and Greta and along the way, we find out why Cooper is so angry at the girl who was once the love of his life and we get to root for them to find their way back to each other. This story was heavier than the other two and your truly feel the pain of both characters. I wasn't as wild about Cooper as I was about Zane and Leo, but in the end, I truly enjoyed this story. Your sympathy lies with Vivian as we learn how the past 10 years of her life have unfolded and you feel her guilt and pain throughout the short story. As always, there is a shining light at the end of the tunnel and I couldn't wait to see how it would all work out. A beautifully written short story of true love conquering all. Now, it's time to jump into the full length Sanctuary Island Stories. This trilogy was an extremely clever way to introduce author's to this new series and I for one can't wait to get started.

Second Chance Romance! I received an advance reader edition of this book from St. Martin's Press and Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed this novella. I would rate this story a solid 4 out of 5 stars. This is the third book in the Billionaire Bachelors trilogy. I was lucky enough to have the chance to read all of the books in the trilogy in order but I each novella could be read as a stand alone. The novellas do share several characters and a bet that ties everything together but the focus of the each story is the individual romance. This story picks up at the wedding of Miles and Greta. Miles has bet 3 of his billionaire friends that if they came to Sanctuary Island to help him get ready for the wedding they will fall in love.....or they can have his luxury helicopter. Cooper is jolted when he spots his former love, Vivian at the wedding. Vivian broke Cooper's heart 10 years ago. Cooper decides on the spot to punish Vivian by seducing her and then leaving as she left him so many years ago. Cooper soon realizes that he does not want to leave quite so soon. Cooper and Vivian decide to work on the cabin she has recently purchased in a business deal. After spending more time together, Cooper learns that he did know everything that happened to cause Vivian to leave so many years ago. Vivian has been through a lot in their years apart and she eventually shares everything that has brought her to the place in life she is currently in. The book does end with a Happily Ever After ending that most romance readers enjoy. I would definitely recommend this book to any reader that enjoys romance. It is a short novella and can easily be read in a couple of hours. I plan to look for future works by Lily Everett.

This is by far my favorite story in this series. I like "Done Wrong" stories and this one really touched me. I guess it's because I used to hold grudges forever. I always said "I don't get mad-I get even"! I am so glad I out grew that. I love/hate feeling bad for Cooper and Vivian. I always feel for both characters. I seldom pick just one. This felt like a shorter read than the others but deeper as well. I had to read to the end to get to the problem and then decide who would go first to fix it. I so love the ending. I hope whoever else reads this series enjoys it as much as I did!

This is the continuing story of three billionaire bachelors, who agree to a bet with their friend, Miles Harrington,  where whichever of the three do not fall in love on Sanctuary Island before he(Miles) gets married, receives his helicopter.  This book is about Cooper and his ex-lover from college, Vivian. He thinks that her life is perfect and wants his revenge. Problem is that her life has been far from perfect.  I have read all of Lily's books in this series and I am finding it's hard to pick which one is the best.  Sighworthy heroes and emotionally charged heroines make for a dynamite series.  I love books that make me smile at the end. This is one of those.

Title: Lantern Lake - The Billionaire Bachelors Novella Series Book 2 Author: Lily Everett Publisher: St Martin Press Published: 1-21-2014 ISBN: 9781466854765 E-Book ASIN: B00F8H3TRQ Pages: 98 Genre: Romance Tags: Contemporary Miles Harrington, first introduced in the Billionaire Brothers Trilogy Book Three also which set on Sanctuary Island, gathers his three friends together to announce his engagement to Greta and his wedding plans. The three friends, Zane Bishop, CEO of Whatever Entertainment and owner of three highly successful Manhattan night clubs, Lord Leo Strathairn, playboy younger son of a wealthy English Lord, and Cooper Haynes, who is a self made billionaire, are floored by the news and at first try to dissuade him and then ask if he is being blackmailed into marriage. When they finally accept he loves Greta he asks each of his chosen groomsmen to do a task to help with the wedding. He wants Miles to arrange the wedding venue and reception. His request to Leo is that he choose a special reading for the wedding. Lastly he asks that Cooper arrange the honeymoon trip of a lifetime. As the three prepare to depart the Biltmore Club and Miles announces that he is taking his private helicopter back to Sanctuary Island the men come up with a bet. Miles agrees to give the winner his helicopter and private access to club helicopter pad, something the other three can not hope to attain for years if ever, in exchange for their coming to the Island with him now. They are to stay until the wedding four weeks hence. The bet is that their lives will be changed forever and that they will find the loves of their lives before Miles walks down the aisle to say I do. Each man is confident he will win and accept the bet. Lantern Lake is the third in the second novella series by Lily Everett set on Sanctuary Island. It is Cooper Haynes and Vivian Banks story. Years before while still in college Cooper and Vivian met and fell in love. Coming from totally different backgrounds Cooper was devastated when Vivian gave in to pressure to leave him standing on the Courthouse steps with a license and return home and marry the man of their choice from their social circle. When Cooper stands beside Miles and watches the bridesmaids walk down the aisle he is both shocked and angered to see Vivian as one of them. He decides to seduce the woman who broke his heart and walk away from her as she did to him all those years ago. Revenge is a dish best served cold because a cold empty heart is required for the act and heat can crack a cold heart. This is the last in Billionaire Bachelors Trilogy and as such brings the storyline to a close. You will discover who, if anyone, wins the bet and the helicopter and pad usage at the Biltmore Club. As always Lily Everett provides us with a story filled with quick turns and humorous dialog. There is still the Sanctuary Island Novels for me to read and enjoy as well. If you have not read the other books in this trilogy I recommend you do so even this story can stand alone. If you received as much pleasure from this series might I suggest reading The Billionaire Brothers Trilogy as well. This trilogy covers Miles Harrington and his two younger brothers and the women that heal and warm their hearts. Thank you to NetGalley for selecting me to review Lantern Lake in exchange for my honest review.
