Tiger Lily by May Dawson
In one colossally bad day, my boss fires me so he can give my job to his nephew, I find my boyfriend cheating on me, and—when being human is just too painful—I accidentally shift and trash my own apartment. My inner cat is apparently offended by table lamps.
Then my grandfather falls and breaks his arm, and I head back to Silver Springs to help him.
Or maybe I run back to Silver Springs…
But I won’t be there long.
My boss and my ex-boyfriend might be total jerks, but maybe there’s something really unlovable about me. I definitely don’t fit into sweet Silver Springs.
When Lily’s car breaks down on the side of the road in Silver Springs, I’ve got the solution to all her problems—from towing her car with my truck to giving her a job at Hot Wheels, my brand-new garage. Easy.
When I finally convince her to come work with me and my ‘brothers’, she lights up the auto shop with her sassy personality.
Too bad she thinks I’m bossy when I’m just trying to help…
Watching Blake and Lily is painful. Sparks fly in every way when the two of them are together. Sometimes they fight. Sometimes they lock eyes like they want to hop on top of the Honda and lick each other.
I’ve loved Lily since we were kid, but she’s always snubbed me. Once she reveals it’s her own insecurities that kept her from ever kissing me, though, I’m determined to show her just how much I adore her… If only I can convince her what I feel is real.
I’ve always been the quiet geek in our group. Blake’s always tried to boss Lily, Dylan’s always tried to kiss her. Lily and I have always had a comfortable friendship.
But now we’re all grown-up. I’m the same nerd I always was, but my new app has gone viral. I could go anywhere—but I choose to be here in Silver Springs, with my brothers and Hot Wheels.
And with Lily.
Then her past—and all her insecurities—careens into Silver Springs and tries to wreck our new love.
Will the four of us finally fight for what we want—and win our happily-ever-after together?”

Oh and let’s not forget about her grandpa breaking his arm causing her to go back to Silver Springs, but it’s not like she has much to leave behind at the moment.
“Just because something is beautiful and magical doesn’t mean it’s any less real.”
Shortly after being back in the town where she grew up, Lily runs into the three guys who were her friends all throughout their childhood until she left. She didn’t reunite with the all at once for she might have combusted from the rush of emotions she feels.
Throughout the book Lily struggles with her feelings for the guys and worries about not being the right person from them. She doubts that guy’s feelings aren’t real in fear of them just wanting something to case, the enchanted book she was gifted by a dog, and other things she’s never dealt with in the past.
Each of the guys have a different personality from being sweet and loving to observant and smart to leading and persistent, yet they all want Lily’s happiness and for her to be herself and not have to feel like she has to hid anything of her personality.
“I flipped to the end to make sure there was a happy ending. I knew it was a romance, but what if I’d picked up some terrible love story where, I don’t know, someone dies, or they all die, or she has to choose in the end?”
Just when Lily could start to see some semblance of happiness being back in Silver Springs with the guys. The life that she just left behind makes a visit. The ex boyfriend comes back to confront Lily about her being a shifter and try to get back with her. Brad, said ex boyfriend, could be the thing that exposes Silver Spring’ secret of being a sanctuary to the paranormal universe to the rest of the world. So, Lily feels likes it’s for the greater good to leave the little happiness she just found to come with a solution to save the town even if it means leaving again.
In this story Lily has to work through a lot of buried emotions to be able to fully live in the present, but that might not be enough when the universe keeps throwing curveballs at her.
