"Dylan Allen is fearless in her writing, gutting you with the prologue giving you every bit of Lilly's story with a raw and flawless prose so you feel like you're right there with her: the pain, the shame and the joy of self-rediscovery. Harry goes down as one of my favorite book boyfriends ever" - Bestselling Author Stephanie Rose
It was beautiful, poignant, painful, and so uplifting and happy. It was like Dylan distilled life and put it between the covers of a book. I can't recommend this book enough when it comes out, my friends- #1 Amazon Bestselling Author, Lucy Score

Lilly is a mystery to those that "know" her. She is drifting through life trying to deal with her anger and self doubt that resulted from a traumatic event. She guards her emotions and her heart with impenetrable armor, wielding control as a weapon. Harry is a hard working and focused man. He values tradition, family, and truth. He has been burned in a past relationship and isn't looking for anything complicated. Both Lilly and Harry have internal demons they are trying to extinguish. However, their sorrow is a common cord that somehow connects them.
Lilly and Harry's meeting is not ideal. It is an awkward encounter that leaves both of them reeling and unsteady. Their is a magnetic pull between them that they try hard to deny. I loved how they would momentarily open for one another and then their heated dislike would return ten fold. It felt visceral and passionate. The sexy times are filled with five alarm blaze level passion that will have you overheating. Then their brief and intoxicating affair ends on tenuous terms.
When Lilly and Harry unexpectedly meet again, they struggle to find their footing. There is undeniable hurt, anger, and confusion separating their hearts and minds. Their road back to each other is fraught with fear, misunderstanding, and outside interference. Throughout it all, their connection is palpable and resilient. They must fight for their love. They fight with themselves, with each other, but most importantly for each other.
Release will take you for a heart-wrenching and exhilarating ride! You won't want to put this book down. These characters will make you ache and beg and cry and laugh. I finished reading Release and was left in a state of bliss and satisfaction. Dylan Allen.....mind blown!
Lilly, the middle of the Hassan sisters, is considered to be the backbone and binding of the family. The one who always listens and steps in when needed. Unfortunately, that meant that when she needed to be supported and seen she wasn't. Being a strong, independent and self-reliant woman, she went it alone. Retreating into herself for preservation, she created an alternate persona that couldn't be hurt.
This is a story of what happens to a person's spirit when their connections in life are broken. What happens when someone goes strictly into survival mode to get through. Dylan Allen takes what is an all to common experience and cuts it open to reveal the bleeding, festering wound that it leaves behind, a wound that time does not heal. Her characters are vibrant in their truths, all the good, the bad, the beautiful and the ugly. Lilly is someone you know. Her thoughts and responses are the ones you see in your sister, your friend, your co-workers ~ even if you don't understand them for what they are. Harry is the man who comes across as blunt and slightly cold but is the person you always expect honesty from. Each have deep set hurts that make them the way they are. Fate brings them together to give them what they are missing within themselves.
Release runs the gamut from heartbreakingly candid to bitter sweetly revealing to erotically sexy. Ms. Allen's story will, at times, will leave you with tears, at other times wondering what and why her characters are doing what they do and at others it will shine brilliantly hopeful and love filled. Release begs the questions, what would you not do to protect your heart and sanity and then what would you do to set yourself free?
Release is about Lilly, the middle Hassan sister from the series, who is hiding a lot of pain behind a strong facade. Harry, the hero, is hiding a lot of pain and disappointment behind a strong facade as well. These two have a bit of a rocky start, but the two have a strong connection which transcends continents. As a result of their sorrow and pain, they create a series of misunderstandings which reveal secrets that I wondered if they would be able to overcome. Lilly and Harry’s journey is a passionate and dramatic one, which kept me on my toes.
Each book in this series takes place in a different location and Ghana and England come to life in Release. Ms. Allen always does a wonderful job letting the reader experience the setting. It’s one of the favorite things I like about her books.
Additionally, I enjoy the relationship between the sisters, Addie, Milly and Lilly. These books are about how family can ground you, especially in times of need. Additionally, the secondary characters shine. I especially enjoy Jan, Harry’s housekeeper, and would love to read about her more! She has lots of spunk and is a special addition in the book.
This is the third book in Ms. Allen’s Symbol of Love series, but can be read as a standalone.
