Book: A Girl Like Lilac
Author: Victoria L. James
Genre: NA Romance
The first time Toby Hunter got arrested for defending Lilac Clarke’s honour, he was only fifteen years old, but he’d loved her from behind his black-rimmed glasses for as long as he could remember.
With a desperate need to protect her from a distance, one arrest turned to two, two soon turning into three, and before Toby knew what was happening, the sleepy village of Southwold was turning against him for daring to stand up for a girl like Lilac.
Beautiful Lilac with her flowers in her hair, her camera in her hands, and her sweet, pink, sugary-lipped kisses.
They could hate him for loving her all they wanted. Toby was a boy who did what was right, not what was easy, and he was always going to grow to be the man willing to give her what she deserved.
Even if that meant losing Lilac forever.

Tara's 5 star review
True, long lasting love is very rare, but so is Lilac. She is so rare, you often wondering if you’re dreaming when you see her. Toby Hunter is the one boy that ever really saw Lilac’s magic. He worshipped her head to toe, inside and out. Tony waited for Lilac, and when the time came, Lilac waited for him.
“I gave him an escape and a way out of his misery. I gave him my love, my body, my heart. I gave him happiness. He told me so. He kissed it to me as I broke through his pain.”
A Girl Like Lilac is the definition of an epic love story. Victoria captured true love in this book. From the butterflies in the beginning, to the hardships, to the unforgettable moments, A Girl Like Lilac will leave you breathless. With every word, every touch, and every tear, you will be swept away into Toby and Lilac’s world.
“I dropped my head to his bare chest and listened to his frantic heartbeat. It made my smile ache. I loved hearing the way I made his body sing. Me. Just a girl with a big heart, big dreams, and big desires.”
Victoria’s writing ability is like a piece of art. Each sentence flows beautifully with the next, and before you know it, you cannot put her books down. The way she sets each scene and portrays each emotions will have you applauding. Victoria L. James is undoubtably one of the best authors I have read, and A Girl Like Lilac will be the best romance book of the summer!
“I couldn’t be mad at them for anything. I was mad at myself for being so weak and fragile when I needed to stand up and be the warrior princess who would slay all the dragons for her prince who was trapped in the castle.”
