⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ REVIEW: Winning Hollywood’s Goodest Girl by Max Monroe

I love Max Monroe’s rom coms. I hate secret babies. So you can understand the dilemma I’m in with this book. It’s got everything I love about Monroe’s work – light, fun moments, interesting characters, quirky humor, and an unpredictable storyline – but I really struggled to get onboard with some of the plot. It’s personal preference more than anything else that detracted from my enjoyment, but this definitely wasn’t my favorite from the author. That being said, I loved Harrison – he is such a great guy, and his determination makes him a very, VERY swoonworthy hero. Pair that with all of the humor, and I still enjoyed this one despite having a few issues with the plot.

The story follows Raquel/Rocky, an actress who has been in the business for years. Her team manages her entire life and the purity ring she wears is starting to feel outdated as she nears thirty. After a bad day, she runs into a blast from her past. Harrison hasn’t seen Rocky since they were kids, but they start up a conversation that goes late into the night. One thing leads to another, and it’s not long before Hollywood’s goodest girl is turning in her v-card that very night. But these two live on different ends of the country, so there’s no way it can be anything more than one night… or at least it seems that way, until Harrison discovers that their night will change his life. Harrison might’ve discovered that he’s going to be a father from celebrity gossip, but that doesn’t change his determination to fight for his child.

Let me start by saying that, to me, there’s a BIG difference between a surprise pregnancy romance and a secret baby romance. One is accidental, the other is intentional deception. I thought I’d be reading the first but ended up with the second. That’s where a significant part of my disconnect comes from. These two aren’t exactly on the same page, and that leads to misunderstandings and wasted opportunities. So the first half was a struggle for me. HOWEVER – and this is a big however – it did turn a corner in the second half, and I loved having these two get to know each other better. Harrison is the ideal hero for a book like this; he is patient and loyal, understanding and accepting. Basically, a fantastic guy. He steals the show here, though the humor is also an integral component of what makes this work. It’s not my first (or second, or third) choice of trope, but there’s a lot of goodness to the story. And, hey, if you like a secret baby romance – you’ve got gold on your hands. I eagerly anticipate the next book from this team of authors, because they’ve given us the setup for what’s coming next, and I am all for it. I received an ARC via Social Butterfly PR and am voluntarily leaving a review of this rom com.

Winning Hollywood’s goodest girl is going to take everything I’ve got.

Winning Hollywood’s Goodest Girl, an all-new laugh-out-loud surprise baby rom com by New York Times bestselling author Max Monroe is available now!

Raquel and Harrison sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.

First comes love.

Then comes marriage.

Then comes a baby in the baby carriage.

That’s how her brother used to sing it when we were kids—a simple ploy to get under my skin and make me stick my fist in his face—but man oh man, did he get the order wrong.

One night of “kissing” in New York catapulted us straight to the pregnancy portion of the song—surprise!—and now I have to figure out how to carry out the whole melody in reverse.

A baby on the way first.

Then love and marriage?

It’s complicated on its best day.

But our situation is far more problematic than just a simple twist of nursery rhyme lyrics. Before our night together, Raquel Weaver was the best-known good girl in Hollywood—a twenty-nine-year-old sexpot virgin whom the world adored and watched like a hawk.

Obviously, the consequences of that kind of reputation don’t just go away. Add in pregnancy hormones, the media, a fake fiancé, and a selfish manager, and you have the short list of my problems.

As a thirty-four-year-old, successful CFO of a multibillion-dollar media conglomerate, I thought I would be able to handle anything show business could throw my way, but I’m starting to think I might be in over my head.

Good thing I’m all in.

  1. I’ve seen Max Monroe’s stuff and am interested in checking their stuff out, but I LOATHE secret baby stories (and accidental pregnancy stories, TBH) so this is not gonna be the one.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Yeah, secret babies are a no-go for me too! I don’t love the dishonesty. It’s handled pretty well here but still not my favorite. I definitely recommend trying out Max Monroe sometime though – The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks if you want something on the serious side, Taming Hollywood’s Baddest Boy if you want the humor.
