Lantern Lake by Lily Everett

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.
