    1. Even though it was difficult to read with the situations, it was so well written it didn't make it a hard read. Somethings might not work as well in real life but I absolutely loved it and the positive, and hope it gives cannot compare. It's a great book for anyone to read to see how things work on both sides of abusive situations. Well done Rachel.

    2. I really do appreciate a clean romance and this one fits the bill, but I wasn't expected an emotional roller coaster in addition. I'm all about the happily-ever-afters and don't always like to dwell on the fact that there's a lot of crummy things that happen in life to good people. Lily is born privileged, but decides at a young age that it's her mission in life to rescue and protect those less fortunate than her, namely runaway girls. At the ripe old age of 22, Lily is on the brink of becoming [...]

    3. LILY'S HOUSE series by Rachel Branton promises to be very intriguing. Lily and Mario (Jameson) are pretty much perfect for each other, the only problem is that Lily's family has her on a strict plan, and that doesn't include marrying someone they deem beneath her. But Lily's heart is vast and as she juggles her passion for helping homeless girls, her college classes, and her dreams of becoming a foster parent, when Jameson comes into the picture like a knight in shining armor. But Lily thinks he [...]

    4. ***3.5 stars***I love the concept of this book. Lily is a young woman who grew up in a privileged family. She had money, but the home lacked love and nurture. Lily is a nurturer and has found her calling helping girls who have come from neglect and abuse. She finds strays girls and provides a safe place for them to recover and thrive.While helping out a young girl, she meets Jameson. He is her perfect match. He compliments her and supports her efforts. He is not he man her family envisioned for [...]

    5. 3.5 starsHOUSE WITHOUT LIES was a heart-wrenching read about a woman and her drive to save teenage girl runaways and be the mother they've never had. It was filled with family, friendship, heartbreak, and romance. A bittersweet read with a happy ending. I really liked Lily and Jaimeson and all the girls living with Lily. There were parts that were a little overly dramatic or where Lily was hot and then cold towards Jaimeson almost in the same moment. I wanted a little more maturity there. They i [...]

    6. This was a quick, sweet read. Like super saccharine sweet. What attracted me to it was the premise. I'm a sucker for books about people from abused backgrounds pulling themselves up and making a new life for themselves. While this definitely has some discussions about abuse and several of the characters come from hard backgrounds, this doesn't have the depth I was hoping for. It was about the sweetest, most rose-colored description of this kind of situation. I'm known a lot of people who have wo [...]

    7. Lily has a heart of gold: warm, giving and wise. Aiding girls on the streets (homeless, abused / unwanted), is what she does. The system hasn't helped Lily's girls. Just finishing grad school, Lily's dreamed of doing this since she was a child herself; money is tight and problems abound. Meeting and being attracted to Jameson (who works in the system) while carrying these burdens makes Lily wary. Excellent read! Truthful and honest, written to inspire and entertain! 4 1/2 stars.

    8. House of Lies was a very sweet clean romance. It's well written and reads fast and I pretty much finished it start to finish in one evening.The characters of the book from the MC Lily to the girls who live with her, her romantic interest and her family are interesting. They all have issues in their backgrounds and you do really want to see them come out on the other side in a positive fashion. That said I think there was a little bit of a problem with the characters all being extreme examples of [...]

    9. WHAT IT'S ABOUTLily dreams of a big house, a place of refuge for runaway girls. She knows what it’s like to grow up feeling unloved, and she now fills every space in her her tiny apartment with endangered teens. They don’t have everything they need, but together they have enough. Or so she thinks—until she meets Jameson and glimpses the mysterious something between them that just might mean real love. Jameson, who works as a teen counselor, believes the only way Lily can really help the gi [...]

    10. House without lies was an okay read. I liked Lily. She seems very passionate and driven in her goal to get these girls a home where they can live without fear and surrounded by love. She is willing to sacrifice almost everything to achieve her goal. And here is where I find it hard to connect with Lily completely. I understand such passion, but at times it felt a little unrealistic to me, especially as she is so young. That being said, who am I to judge.Jameson is a great guy. He is fun, sweet, [...]

    11. There are so many different reasons to love a book. This book is a clean romance, which I love, but there are a lot of clean romance books out there. This one stood out because it was equal parts plot and character driven. There was such a good balance of both going on that I was completely absorbed into everything. I didn't want to put this book down.All I know is that we need more Lily's in this world. While reading, I wanted to be Lily. Or someone just like her. She has a ginormous heart, ded [...]

    12. This was a new author for me and I'm so glad I read this book! It was very well written. I loved the originality of the plot. I was enthralled with the story from start to finish. I found it hard to put down. This is a book that you read for its storyline, not for the romance. There is romance (clean) but it's much more about the characters and their struggles and triumphs. I highly recommend it and I would happily read more from the author.

    13. A must read if you're looking for a "feel good" book.This is a new author for me, and one that will stay on my list of favourites. I found the author through a daily discounted book newsletter I receive.If you're looking for steamy you won't find it here. What you will find is a well written, fun and thought provoking book. Lily and Mario are such a great couple, and you can't help but love them and the young girls Lily rescued. Lily was brought up in a privileged world, but without the love of [...]

    14. This was an interesting story about Lily who has grown up in a dysfunctional family and longs to help girls who have been abused and neglected by their families. She takes them in and is trying to help them without any support from the government and they are barely getting by until she meets Jameson who helps her to see the light and get the help and training that she needs to really make a difference. It was a hard story for me to read because I hate to hear about young people being abused and [...]

    15. House without LiesThis was a nice story. Lily might have come from a family rich financially, but she had been starved for love and affection. Fighting for all these abused girls was her focus in life. Luckily Mario was as kind hearted as she was. With Bea's help and support from her sister,they were able to rescue the girls from their abusive homes. Good ending. Gave it 5 stars

    16. 3.5 starsLily was a strong, loving MC. I did love Jameson though he was a little too perfect for me (and I love "perfect"). Their romance bordered on "insta-love," which doesn't always bother me, but for some reason it did in this one. I did love how they ended up working together. I was pleasantly surprised with the depth of the story.

    17. I am not usually a person to pick up an absolutely clean romance , but a friend recommended this book and guess what ? I really liked Lily's story .At times it was heart breaking ,she was about to lose her dream , and her kids , but there is a message Never give up on your dreams amongst a slow building romance . Great story.

    18. Sweet read.This was a beautifully crafted novel. The story gives a glimpse into one woman's fight to help a group of runaway girls while falling in love with an amazingly supportive guy. Just a happy story all around.Worth a read for those looking for a sweet afternoon.Reader Rated for ages 14+ for mild mentions of abuse and substance use.

    19. Fantastic bookI thoroughly enjoyed this book. I read it in one afternoon, literally could not put it down. The strength Lily had for all the kids and her perseverance to protect them was so heartfelt. I could feel her passion for protection and love.I will be reading another book by this author.

    20. I really liked this book, I cared about the characters and want to continue to read about them. I will continue to read books by Rachel Branton. Wonderful story, I want to believe that there are still people like her characters in the world.

    21. Great readVery heart warming, about a difficult subject, child abuse is a very real thing that is hard to get your head around. Rachel has done a superb job. I recommend this book for all ages. There must be Lily,s out there for them that need her.

    22. It is very refreshing to have a good clean read. This was a romance without all the mush. The story focused mostly on Lily who was trying to help runaway girls from broken homes. I would recommend this book.

    23. What an endearing character! This book warms your heart and keeps you reading. I liked it so much that as I rated it when finishing, I immediately bought the next book in the series about Lily's sister and am reading it now.

    24. Normally I don't write reviews but this book was really well written and I loved the characters. Lily is a strong, independent character that has her own problems but she has taken in a group of "lost" children. teens, and a young adult. I will be reading the rest of this series.

    25. Loved this book!!! It has it all. Romance, drama, comedy & is very well written. It made me cry, laugh & hope. This is definitely one on my list to read again.

    26. Great bookThe first book in the serie and I look forward to reading the rest. The book is a love story but so much more with the addition of the runaway girls they help.

    27. Great readI found this book to be riveting. Highly recommended . Wholesome, yet romantic giving hope that the world still has good caring people in it.

    28. Refreshingly differentSo many books run together with the same tired storyline. This clean romance had a fresh perspective and a champion for a female lead. Loved this book!

    29. A deep look into the lives of a number of abused children. It was perfect. the settings and the plot was very good. And the characters were very interesting.
