The synopsis of the book is, “Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. And when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life seems too good to be true.”
It isn’t the first time Lively to mold into the role of a complicated book character. Previously she played Emily in A Simple Favor which is based on Darcey Bell.
