Shielding Lily by Alexa Riley



It’s Lily Parker’s first day at a new high school. She’s a senior finishing her last semester, and all she wants to do is graduate and get out of town. Her home life is a secret hell, and she’s trying to find a way out. But everything changes when Ren says hello and sees right through to her truth.

Ren Hendrick’s succeed’s at everything he touches, including football. But he’s never been passionate about anything. He’s quiet and keeps to himself, which pisses people off. But he can’t find the desire to care. He’s lived a life without color, until Lily walks in and lights up his world.

Their story is one of sweet young love and finding your forever before you can even dream of what that is. It’s one of protecting what belongs to you and having the courage to follow your heart, no matter your age.

Warning: Call your dentist and schedule an appointment, because you’re going to get nothing but cavities from this sugary book. Ren and Lily start off so innocent, but by the time it’s over, you’re gonna need to hose yourself off. We’re talking two virgins who turn into maniacs. You’re welcome!




It’s Lily Parker’s first day at a new high school. She’s almost 18 and ready to be out on her own. In her first class she sits down next to Ren Hendrick aka popular football star. One look at Lily has all Ren’s protective instincts on high alert. What ensues between these two is toothackingly sweet…

description“I love you, Lily Parker,” I say, looking into her big blue eyes. She smiles at me so sweetly it makes my heart ache. “The second I saw you, I fell, babe. I fell hard and fast. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Loving you and becoming everything to you like you are to me.”


What can I say about this one. I enjoyed it, but be prepared to have your dentist on speed dial because this one takes the (cup)cake. It’s basically like eating a giant cupcake with mounds of fluffy ubber sweet buttercream frosting, topped with sugared dancing unicorns farting rainbows. Complete with a further cavity causing epilogue of which I have not seen from very many authors lately…

Go forth and take a GIANT bite out of this baby…
