Fresh, original, and believable. There are some shocking twists. The ending was sweet and satisfying, and probably not what one would expect from a typical romance novel… Indie Book Reviewers

Her dialogue has the ring of authenticity. The theme may be sad, but Lilley brings a certain exuberance to her narrative. A genuinely touching read. A fine absorbing love story from a talented author, High Hopes confirms Lilley’s place as an exciting new voice in Romantic Fiction. Highly recommended… BookViral

Unique and unpredictable. This book was terrific! Once I started reading I didn’t want to stop. The themes of love, life, betrayal, and overall challenges were handled with respect and felt authentic. Definitely not your run-of-the-mill love story, but still real, poignant, and moving. Recommend for fans of drama and romance… Indie Book Reviewers  

Excellent! I thoroughly enjoyed “High Hopes.” It’s honest, touching and funny, with an exciting plot of close friendship, sexual desire and secrets. We recommend High Hopes to all our chick lit readers that love a sassy, witty, sexy and smart read… Chicklit Cafe

Riveting, imaginative, and well- crafted. A really good read that I’d recommend to mature fans of romantic drama… Indie Book Reviewers 

The writing is easy to get lost in. For me the real hero was Dixie – I kept thinking what I would do if I were her. This novel is broad in themes and isn’t just a simple romance novel. I was almost in tears at a few points and loved that the characters were flawed, and so human, relatable and real… Indie Book Reviewers
