It feels like it’s been forever since we’ve had a new rom com from Monroe… and I gobbled this one up in a couple of hours. Which, honestly, is how I’ve consumed most of her books. They’re like rom com movies come to life – reliably super low angst, playful, bingeable, steamy, and full of lighthearted CHARM. Not the most deep or complicated books out there, but they certainly satisfy my light and sexy craving. This one kicks off a brand new spinoff series that’s the perfect jumping in point for new readers, but all kinds of nostalgic for longtime fans. I loved the fun and easy vibes, the chemistry between the characters, and getting to know this brand new group of friends. It’s got me excited for more from the series, and I had no trouble devouring this in one sitting.
The story follows Grace, a personal assistant who is used to taking less than she deserves. When Grace runs into an old high school classmate – who always had effortless charisma and charm – it throws her life off-balance. Not only did Charlie accidentally get Grace fired from her job, but he’s also a handsome and sexy playboy who wants her to accompany him to a dozen weddings over the next few months. He doesn’t want strings or commitments or even a fling, just a platonic date to keep people from hounding him about his love life. But as the two spend time together, they realize that they never really knew each other at all – and giving in to the sparks that fly between them might lead to more.
I love diving into one of Monroe’s rom coms whenever I’m in the mood for something incredibly low angst and entirely bingeable – and this was definitely that. It absolutely flew by, and I had fun reading the whole time. Sure, it keeps things pretty surface level and doesn’t delve too deep, but that was just what I was in the mood for after several long, complex reads in a row. The story plays up some of the tropes, while maintaining a playful and easy feel – Grace and Charlie definitely had chemistry, and I loved them together. Charlie was actually kinda adorable and sweet, even though I wanted to shake him sometimes. I’m intrigued by some of the other characters and I can’t wait for more from the series. We got a few teases, and I’m ready to get reading. I received an early copy and am voluntarily leaving a review of this steamy and sweet romance.
The Billionaire Bachelors are BACK! Fall for a new trope-tactic, fake dating rom-com series from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!
Playboy bachelor Charlie Fox is handsome, charming — and looking for a date to the TWELVE weddings he’s attending this month. He’s topping the city’s ‘Most Eligible’ lists, but he needs a woman who won’t swoon at his feet — or go diving to catch that bouquet. A fake girlfriend is the perfect solution, he’s just not expecting a very familiar face to show up as his plus-one…
The last time I saw Charlie, he was playing Mr Popular at our high-school… while I was stuck being Miss Invisible. Now — thanks to a rogue Chihuahua, my frat-bro boss, and a gallon of gluten-free frosting — he’s making me an offer I really should refuse. Play his fake girlfriend for a summer of wild weddings?
It’ll be worth it, as long as we can keep our hands to ourselves.
And our mouths.
And… other parts, too.
As the wedding marathon gets underway, the sparks between us are anything but fake – and breaking the rules has never been so fun. Can ‘just for now’ turn into ‘forever’? Find out in the sizzling, hilarious new romance from “the reigning queen of romantic comedy” Lila Monroe!
