⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Adorable & fun

Light, funny, and a little sexy, The Romeo Effect is the quintessential rom com. The story moves quickly, the characters are adorable, and the chemistry is apparent from the beginning. I always know exactly what I’m getting with one of Lila Monroe’s books, and they never fail to put a smile on my face. While this isn’t my favorite by the author, it’s a really cute, low angst read.

The story follows Seth, a professional Romeo of sorts – he plans/manufactures (depending on how you look at it) meet cutes, enabling people to put their best foot forward when approaching their crush. He’s been gathering intel on April so that his latest client can win her heart, but he’s inadvertently stolen the show. Why would April want to date the slightly creepy guy Seth is helping out when Romeo himself keeps showing up? The fatal flaw in Seth’s scheming is quickly exposed and he’s forced to reevaluate everything he thought he knew.

The Romeo Effect starts out strong with an original premise, characters who are easy to like, and sparks that fly right away. I loved how April makes Seth rethink the validity of meet cutes that start with deception, and the playful tone of the book continued throughout. Where this loses a star from me is the pacing – things develop pretty quickly between April and Seth, leaving much of the focus on the comedy with the romance feeling shortchanged. Yes, I enjoyed them as a couple but I wanted a little more banter and development before they settle into things. That being said, it’s still a pretty cute, quick and light read. I’m loving the originality of this series and can’t wait to see where it goes next. I received an ARC via Give Me Books and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Lila Monroe!
Seth Harding is the King of Meet-Cutes. If you get trapped
in an elevator with a handsome stranger, or stranded on a moonlit cruise with
the man of your dreams, chances are, it’s not fate bringing the two of you
together, it’s Seth somewhere, pulling the strings.
At least, that’s what I find out, when someone hires Seth to
help win 
my heart. It would be romantic… if he weren’t all
wrong for me. And Mr Right…?
Well, he might just be the guy behind the scenes. 
Suddenly, my faith in soulmates is hitting a major
complication. Seth is cynical, and argumentative… and seriously irresistible.
Soon, the sparks between us are impossible to ignore. But can this hopeful
romantic really find love with a man who engineers happily-ever-afters for a
living? And when all the tricks and tests are stripped away, what makes two
people truly meant to be?
