REVIEW | Beneath The Vine by Lillian Bryant


Title: Beneath The Vine
Author: Lillian Bryant
Genre: Contemporary Romance,
Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 20th 2016

Selene Cavalier spent the majority of her time behind her cello. Her dull life was made up of dark notes, hard work and sheet music.

Bennett Monterosso did what he had to do to get his family’s winery up and running. He didn’t have time for his old ways. His quiet dominance had been silenced. His need was just waiting below the surface, until now.

Having her—it was all he could think about as he watched the young woman behind the cello.

Gage Calibri left his best friend, his home, and his tarnished past five years ago. He suppressed his darker tastes, his physical appetites, and his secrets until he no longer had a choice.

It only took one night for these three lives to collide and to be altered forever.

This wasn’t what they were expecting. This wasn’t who she was. Each moment they sank deeper, each minute they felt more, each second they took her further.

Unhinged… restrained… this obsession… this love… it was all consuming.


My Review
5 You’re my home Stars!

Today is the release for Beneath The Vine, and I thought I should leave a review for this amazing book. I have been obsessing over this book, for like a month or so, So when I received an ARC a week ago. I read it under one day, and all I can say, is damn. The character, the story, everything about this book was so freaking amazing.

This book needs to be savoured. Not rushed, because Beneath The Vine doesn’t deserve to be rushed. This book is everything, it takes you on a rollercoaster with so many twists and turns. The book makes you feel deep in the bones everything the characters are going through. while being emotional, it was also sexy and steamy as hell. I went through this book, with so much emotion, broken heart and grief and unexplainable pain, yet at the same time, there was love, hope and happiness. I loved it so freaking much, so thank you Lillian for bringing this perfection into my life.


Selene Cavalier
Bennett Monterosso
Gage Calibri

Bennett Monterosso saw her first. He saw her beauty and he heard the beautiful melody she was playing with her cello. He loved to take control in the boardroom, but also in the bedroom. In the bedroom he was intimate and sensual, building up the pleasure. He started to build his life on lies and with lies after that one incident that changed everything for him, and since that day he was with guilt every single day.

Gage Calibri is a man with a heart of gold. Always doing what he thinks is right. But when it came to the bedroom, he strived for control and dominance. Just so you all know I am #TEAMGAGE all the way.

That one day, that incident did something more to Bennett. It separated him from his best friend Gage. They were so close that they’d even share a woman.

Giovanna Selene Cavalier was at a very low point in life when she met Bennett. After losing her only family, she was struggling to keep her head above the water, but she had her dreams and goals to keep her going. She is a strong and brave woman, who even though she did have anything but her cello and her dreams, she made something out of herself, which is why I love her so much. She pushed through life, and survived the worst. Sometimes I wish I was her. She deserves all the happpines and love.

When she met Bennett she immediately felt drawn to him. But she also caught the eye of his best friend Gage Calibri. Gage and Bennett haven’t spoken in five years, after that incident separated them. Bennett and Gage had a history of sharing women, and so after meeting Selena, they realize that they both like her, so they fall back into their old habits. THE SEX SCENES WERE SO STEAMY AND SEXY, I felt my body burning while reading, that I had to stop, so I could get control over myself. Aside from their sexual relationship, they shared an emotional and intense relationship. I won’t go into details, that would be spoiling.
