Each and every book Lila Monroe writes just gets better and better…I cannot get enough of her fun and sizzling romances! Like the previous books in the Billionaire Bachelors Series, Wild Card starts out as a business arrangement. But Olivia, the powerhouse woman who usually sets up the arrangements, is in a need of a suitor herself this time. And who better to fill that need than ex-NFL QB (and utterly gorgeous) Ryan Callahan–who just so happens to need someone to help him woo some investors. Win-win, right? But once these two polar-opposite characters spend more time together, their “professional” relationship quickly shifts from business to pleasure. *squeal* Wild Card packs so much within its pages! Fun, witty, passionate, hilarious, and romantic, Olivia and Ryan were two fantastically written characters that matched an amazingly penned love story. Their red-hot chemistry was evident from page one, but it was their intelligent and quite comical batter made this story so much more engaging and provocative. And Ryan sure gave Prince Charming a run for his money for his heroism in saving Olivia from the ridiculous situations she was put in. Seriously…that boy needs a cape, and ONLY a cape (ya’ know what I’m saying!). I loved this book. Everything about it. Wild Card, in my opinion, is the best book in the series, so far! *sigh* Undoubtedly swoony, sexy, and heartachingly sweet, this book will leave you wanting more….and more! An absolutely fun, fiesty, and highly entertaining must read! 5 Stars! *ARC provided for a voluntary honest review.* ~Kelly

I have read the previous two books in this series so I knew the basics to expect when it came to the story. What was a little different about this one person who set up the arrangements in the previous books was the one in the spotlight this time around. It was interesting seeing the dynamics of Olivia's business behind the scenes. It's not something most people would think about and when they do they probably misunderstand the purpose of what she is trying to do. There is a so much that goes into what she does and I really appreciated how dedicated she was to finding the perfect person to complete each job. One of my favorite things about this book was seeing Olivia on the other end of the type of arrangements she usually sets up for her clients. There are strict rules set up in each contract so there is a clear understanding that everything is supposed to remain professional and the arrangement isn't meant to be for romantic compatibility. As much as she initially tries to fight it Olivia begins falling for the guy that she has come to an agreement with. IN the midst of that she also has to deal with her father's new fiancee who happens to be her old college roommate. I know this wasn't meant to be a huge part of the story but I wanted to know why Vanessa kept acting the way she did towards Olivia. I never understood why there was so much animosity there. Also I didn't like that Olivia's father didn't notice how Vanessa acted towards her and if he did notice I didn't like that he never addressed it. I'll admit I didn't feel as connected to Olivia and Ryan as I would've liked to. I did still enjoy seeing their relationship throughout the story. They both had preconceived notions about each other and it was nice seeing them get to know each other and realize the other wasn't how they thought he/she was. If you are looking for a quick romance with lots of humor and some drama thrown in, check out the Billionaire Bachelors series. Thank you to InkSlinger PR for sending me an early copy for my honest thoughts.

    I love the "let's pretend to be boyfriend/girlfriend" to something more books... Lila Monroe's take on one of my favorite troupes was SO fun and sexy! Olivia Danvers the matchmaker has met her match in retired NFL player Ryan Callahan. What starts off as a business relationship turns into more as Olivia and Ryan travel to Florida to attend her father's wedding to her psycho roommate from college Vanessa while Ryan is also looking for some arm candy in a business meeting with some investors.

What starts off as a business relationship turns into more as Olivia and Ryan travel to Florida to attend her father's wedding to her psycho roommate from college Vanessa while Ryan is also looking for some arm candy in a business meeting with some investors. Olivia and Ryan's chemistry was off the charts not only because of their fun bantering but because they were consistently there for each other in more than just the professional capacity... because they showed that they truly cared for each other's well-being. What starts off as platonic becomes more and the reader can literally feel their emotions emitting from the pages from the simple touches or hand holding to the passion that consumes them as their time together progresses. I loved every single moment with them... most especially when Ryan was saving her from the crazy situations that Olivia would find herself in LOL Lila Monroe writes romantic comedy that isn't over the top or overdone... just like Goldilocks and the three bears... it is just right... just perfect... and she has found a forever fan that is looking forward to more in this series and just more from her in general. I am excited for what's to come! Another fun read that is perfect for the upcoming summer days! x

Yeah I have splurged, I am hoarding, and I am stalking any author with the romance trope of a 'lets pretend' relationship. I do believe I have read about 4 of these types of books just in the month of June - so yeah obsession is strong with this one.  Wild Card is filled with so many things that I enjoy most about these types of tropes. It was entertaining, the characters are both charismatic with sweet swoonage and the drama is nothing short of hilarious - not a second of boredom.  Speaking of the characters, their dynamics were perfection. Olivia is definitely an interesting character in a lot of ways. She was very stubborn, at the beginning she really acted like she had a stick up her ass, I personally thought it was perfect personality trait. She obviously took her job in a passionate, professional manner and was proud of her life. Though she is single she has a certain level of independence that I found empowering. Ryan on the other hand was also stubborn but he was more laid back in certain attributes. Though he took his job serious, which is why he needed Olivia's help in the first place, he still took things at the fly. I also enjoyed his vulnerability towards the end, he may be all broody and alpha - hear me roar - but had a really big softy side. Queue the 'awes'... Olivia and Ryan's chemistry really clashed. At the beginning they tolerated one another for the sake of the deal, but as the storyline developed their agreement turned more buddy system. Though the sexual attraction was present from the beginning to a certain degree, they kept this distance and it allowed a sort of trust, friendship to build first. Ryan was Olivia's team, and she was his wingman - it was great. And that chemistry! Whew. It was feisty, it was freeing and above all it was entertaining. I think because they had such a believable build with their initial friendship, the sexual chemistry was more believable when they crossed that line. It was hot, it was passionate and it was definitely delicious - I am pretty sure my panties melted off. Ryan can be my fake boyfriend any day of the week. I'll even take Olivia to really spice it up. Even with the drama I could not stop laughing or cringing - not cringing in a bad way. The bridezilla made me think of the show instantly and I could not stop chuckling; my stomach was killing me. This definitely aided so much to the drama factor which a lot of the secondary characters did this. It was great. Everything from the serial groom (aka Dad), the Bride Tribe Shenanigans, and the interesting jack-hole Tristian.  I honestly cannot gush enough about this book. I truly enjoyed Wild Card more than I thought, I have never read anything by Lila Monroe but I can honestly say as of this point I will be adding her more to my TBR! Olivia and Ryan's romance was absolutely entertaining. When I wasn't laughing I was swooning hardcore. Lila is a keeper!

    So far, Lila Monroe’s Billionaire Bachelors series has been all about matching up rich, handsome men with classy, attractive women in a business arrangement of sorts, and while the matched pair goes into their agreement understanding the stakes, what was meant to be a professional interaction quickly morphs into something more…something rather unbusinesslike and very personal, and through the first two billionaires’ stories, readers have been right along with the couple, witnessing their sexual So far, Lila Monroe’s Billionaire Bachelors series has been all about matching up rich, handsome men with classy, attractive women in a business arrangement of sorts, and while the matched pair goes into their agreement understanding the stakes, what was meant to be a professional interaction quickly morphs into something more…something rather unbusinesslike and very personal, and through the first two billionaires’ stories, readers have been right along with the couple, witnessing their sexual chemistry, their mutual attraction, and their witty exchanges, waiting for them and their partners to realize that what they feel for one another is so much more than friendly appreciation. In Wild Card, Monroe places the matchmaker herself, Olivia Chambers, into the ‘dating’ world that she’s created, finding herself in need of a plus one for another one of her father’s weddings, but this time, there are even higher stakes due to the nature of Olivia’s relationship with her soon-to-be step mother, so Olivia’s need for a date trumps her unease over teaming up with one of her fussiest clients, ex-NFL star, Ryan Callahan, and while these two may not see or even understand how quickly things heat up between them, readers see through their polar opposite personalities and the series of misfortunate but nonetheless comedic situations they finds themselves in for what they truly are - a perfect match. Karma really must have it in for Olivia for her father to choose her college nemesis as his new bride, and that idea is confirmed as Olivia deals with bridezilla and finds herself in a number of chaotic situations, all resulting from people and an environment that seem hellbent on making Olivia suffer. But there is one person who has Olivia’s back and while it’s difficult for her to wrap her brain around her attraction to Ryan and the way he makes her feel, she’s quite happy with him by her side, which means that their business deal may need to be amended as long as Ryan wants to make things a lot more personal than professional and a lot more permanent than temporary. Olivia and Ryan’s story is filled with amusing banter, embarrassing moments, and steamy situations. Try as they might, these two can’t deny the pull they feel towards one another despite the ‘roles’ they thought they were playing, and while it complicates a number of areas in their life, they both need to decide if the business side of themselves is more important than the personal side. 4 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)

Olivia is the owner of the successful business who matches people up, not one of the staff that goes on assignment. However when she is cornered into attending her father’s latest wedding to an old college nemesis, she has no hesitation is helping out her latest client as long as he helps her out and plays her boyfriend for the wedding and sundry events. After all what could go wrong, a week in the Florida Keyes, with Ryan and Olivia helping each other out? Nothing or so Ryan and Olivia think? What will happen when feelings become involved, jealously rears it;’s ugly head and attraction becomes impossible to resist? Neither Ryan or Olivia have any intention of becoming involved for real. It’s all for show. However real life intervenes and that is when the fun really begins. Wild Card is a great read full of love, sadness, hope and humour. The banter between Olivia and Ryan had me in stitches at times. Ryan is most assuredly a swoon worthy, hot alpha male determined to get what he wants. I loved this book from start to finish; it was a fabulous read, full of great moments that really brought a smile to my face and one that I really didn’t want to put down.

She is such an important character in the series that her story had to be told. Needless to say, I was really impressed with the execution of the story and how well ended. It will definitely leave you wanting fore more. At the beginning of the story we are introduced ***Review can also be found at Jackie's Book World. :)*** Having read and enjoyed the previous books in the Billionaire Bachelors Series, I was really excited when it was announced that Wild Card was going to be about Olivia Danvers. She is such an important character in the series that her story had to be told. Needless to say, I was really impressed with the execution of the story and how well ended. It will definitely leave you wanting fore more. At the beginning of the story we are introduced to Olivia Danvers, the owner/CEO of The Agency, a matching business that does not aim to find their clients true love (though that hasn’t been working out lately). Instead, The Agency focuses on finding the perfect companion to the rich millionaires that might find themselves looking for a date to take to an event. These events are without any strings and there is no need for a relationship to follow. Olivia is the best at what she does, but she wasn’t expecting to need a companion of her own. After finding out that her dad is getting married to non other than her ex-college roommate/nemesis, she doesn’t want to give Vanessa a reason to give Olivia trouble again. Olivia has been focusing on doing all that she can to make her job a success and that has left her with no time to have a relationship. She knows that this will create misunderstandings with Vanessa and to make her drool with envy, Olivia sets out to find a hot date to take home with her for the wedding week. That is when her newest client calls her to let her know that he hasn’t been impressed with the recent matches and Olivia immediately comes up with a plan to satisfied both ends. Ryan Callahan has proven to be one of her most difficult clients and she wants show him that she can deliver so she makes him a proposition. She will attend his events and he’ll attend the wedding festivities with her. It all starts with a simple contract, but the more time they spend together the harder it gets for her to see their contract as a job. Ryan Callahan has the looks and wealth to get just about any woman that he wants. He is used to been surrounded with attention due to his job as a NFL quarterback. His name is well recognized, but after suffering an injury that stopped him from playing again, Ryan is looking for the next adventure in his life. He has been recently interested in launching a chain of health kiosks and he is looking for potential investors for this project. But the one that he wants to impress the most is an old-fashioned guy that doesn’t care so much about his football career rather than the money he can get in return. So Ryan needs someone who is used to being in those circles and who will not have trouble attending those events with him. When he hire the help of The Agency, he wasn’t expecting to find himself attending those events with the owner herself. Now he has to attend the wedding with Olivia and the more time he spends with her and all her family the more he wants to see where things can go when they go back to New York before it’s too late. I absolutely loved Wild Card, Ryan is such a charming and hilarious guy. From the moment they met, the two of them have had such a great chemistry, but they know that they can’t take things further. Olivia’s future stepmom, Vanessa, does some crazy stuff to Olivia the minute they get to Key West for the wedding. From taking her luggage to leaving her stranded in an island, Vanessa has proven to be the worst future stepmom anyone can have. But this somehow works for Olivia since she gets rescued by Ryan every time, which is sweet and charming on his part. He has her back from the beginning and Olivia is starting to develop feelings for him. On the other hand, Ryan has to overcome a bit of anxiety when he meets with the investors for the first time. Olivia is there for them and she makes him feel secure again. They both help each other overcome obstacles in their lives and that’s when things start to get complicated. There is a contract looming over their heads and they have figure out if starting a relationship is worth it or not. I loved the concept of the book and how well it was written. The ending was cute and simple. All in all, if you’re looking for a great summer read then I highly recommend reading this book as well as the rest in the series. You will not be disappointed! :) ***ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.****

I’ve enjoyed every single one of Lila Monroe’s romantic comedies that I’ve read, and I’ve read quite a few of them. She effortlessly blends together heat and humor, keeping her plots low on the angst and drama to achieve a light-hearted, easy-reading romance. One of the things I love most about Monroe’s writing style is how she pulls me right there into it with vivid descriptions and interesting details. She brings all of this together with imaginative storylines, fun side characters and sexy romances that result in entertaining reading experiences. Wild Card is the third book in her Billionaire Bachelors series, and I’ve been looking forward to this book since the tease at the end of Hot Daddy. Monroe’s spin on the fake boyfriend genre is pretty much everyone’s worst nightmare with the heroine’s father preparing to marry her college nemesis. Olivia has made an appearance in both of the first two books of this series as the owner of the discreet, high end, date-for-hire service that paired up the previous two couples, but Wild Card is a standalone and it’s not necessary to read those books to enjoy this one. Olivia has been working with the super picky, hard-to-please, former pro-football player, Ryan, to secure a classy, educated, entertaining, beautiful woman to be at his side during some important business negotiations. Olivia prides herself on her success rate, but she’s running out of options for him. Meanwhile, she needs a date for her father’s wedding, and it just so happens to be the same week as Ryan’s meetings in a nearby locale. The idea forms, and Olivia agrees to be his plus-one if he’ll be hers. What they didn’t expect, though, was the attraction between them and the fact that what they thought they knew of each other from their previous dealings wasn’t exactly accurate. There was no fighting this kind of chemistry, and it was quite a ride as business turned to pleasure between the two of them. Laugh-out-loud funny and fanning myself sexy, Wild Card by Lila Monroe was a whole lot of fun to read and gets 4.5 smooches from me! ~ Danielle Palumbo

Olivia Chambers is the owner of The Agency, a company that finds the perfect fake fiancee or date for important business men or actors who need someone on their arm to attend important functions but want the fake kind of date. She’s very successful in her line of work and one of her long term clients is Ryan Callahan. He’s ex-NFL, now businessman and needs a date for several business functions but is being extremely picky about his date candidates. Olivia finds out that her father is marrying (like for the fourth time), and goes to meet her future stepmother. To her horror, she finds that her father’s fiancee is her first year college roommate who was a complete psycho bitch and terrorized her for that complete year. She needs a dazzling date for this wedding which is happening soon. Since Ryan is still rejecting all the candidates that Olivia finds for him, she decides to take on the job herself, and by a lucky coincidence, the business functions happen on the same week as her father’s wedding, both in the Miami / Key West area, so they make the deal to be each other’s fake date and off they go on their adventure. What ensues next is a sexy romp where Olivia finds torture from one side, companionship and great sex from the other side. She and Ryan make a great couple. The plot developed very nicely, with a great pace. It was a fun read, with some wacky funny scenes. I liked how Ryan and Olivia got to know each other, Ryan appreciated Olivia and saw behind the professional façade she usually kept. Ryan was very supportive to Olivia as she suffered through the pre-wedding activities. It was a fun read.

What I should have said is the chemistry is hot and they fall in love while working to make the others life better. I have to say the  sex was HOT ( swooning ) This is told in dual POV’s which builds the story beautifully. Now I can look forward to Man candy the next book in the Series.

So Ryan Callahan is the that ex all American football and while uber charming he is also a sweetheart underneath. Olivia successful matchmaker and businesswoman can be wound up tight and this little break for her dad's wedding is the ticket. But the caveat her old nemesis is the one her dad is marrying. She's in need of the perfect arrangement that's where Ryan comes in. He needs the perfect wingwoman to seal a business deal and she needs to impress. They may have an arrangement of sorts but the Miami weather heats things up. Especially with the wicked step mom alert. It's a fast paced story than I thought it'd be but all the same the chemistry and lust was evident right away. While they were both different personality wise they got along easily. Ryan was more down to earth than I thought he would be and while he's confident not overbearing. Soon the lines blur and that attraction becomes more than appeal. Wild card, that title makes sense, is a cute wedding date esque story with fun times and some heated attraction. The humor in this made it more fun, add to the witty banter between the two makes for a good plot. A fake relationship turned more is always a trope I like. I think I'm curious enough to back track too for the others. My first book by Lila Monroe and it was pretty good and enjoyable, quick easy vacation read. The next book seems interesting too *** ARC provided for an honest review ***

    Wild card is the third book in the Billionaire Bachelors series. It's a light novel that's easy to read and it has some funny moments. It can be read as stand-alone and those who have read the other two books might see some familiar faces.

Ryan and Olivia were a good couple and I had fun watching them become something more. I didn't like the way Ryan treater though at some point towards the end of the book. Another thing that bothered me is a repeat offense in the series. The heroine gets blamed for something she had zero control over and it created drama. Hopefully, that won't happen in the next book.

Plenty of hilarious moments, steamy upon steamy scenes and you got yourself a solid rom-com. Absolutely loved this read and definitely see myself re-reading this one!

Another fabulous book from Lila Monroe!

    This one had potential, but then kind of biffed it with the reason that Ryan got all mad at Olivia. It was kind of like... really? Also - I really wanted to see Olivia finally put Vanessa in her place and that didn't really happen. Anyway, still an enjoyable read and I will be reading the fourth book. This series in general, enjoyable, but not quiiiite there for me.

    Good This was very enjoyable. I wasn't sure I was going to like Ryan at the start, because he was coming off as an arrogant jerk. But it turns out that first impressions aren't always finale. Olivia, I thought she was an older woman? Thinking that I wasn't excited about a cougar storyline, but I was way off. Have to say, I liked seeing the quirky girl beneath the uptight match maker veneer. Yeah Ryan messed up, and I'm glad it wasn't the woman doing to groveling this time.

    Lila Monroe’s latest installment of her Billionaire Bachelors series is hilarious. It is a great take on the fake wedding date premise. Main character, Olivia Chambers, runs the fake date service (she is not a madam nor is she a matchmaker per se), but when one high profile client just can’t find the right person to act as his partner for some business schmoozing, Olivia fills in. The laughs begin when her client, Ryan Callahan, steps in to bail out Olivia. When her dad announces that he is marry Lila Monroe’s latest installment of her Billionaire Bachelors series is hilarious. It is a great take on the fake wedding date premise.

The laughs begin when her client, Ryan Callahan, steps in to bail out Olivia. When her dad announces that he is marrying Olivia’s college nemesis, she decides she needs a hot date for the event. The old college roommate, Vanessa, is a nightmare, and she goes out of her way to make the wedding a trip to Hades for Olivia. Good thing Ryan is there to save the damsel in distress every time she lands in a weird crisis. Both main characters are highly likable, and while I didn’t find their chemistry to be explosive, I did love the ease of their relationship. They seemed like old friends who had a new appreciation for one another. There is a solid base of respect and admiration beyond their physical attraction. The secondary characters are a mixed bag. Olivia’s friends are delightful and supportive. Vanessa and her “bride tribe” seem to be a spoof of several high-profile social media “celebrities”. Olivia’s dad is almost a non-character. He has one really meaningful scene with his daughter, and then pulls a high-speed-left- turn-from-the-right-lane twist to the story line. Wild Card is a light-hearted, swoony read. The plot flows, the main characters are equals (outside of comedic situations, no one needs saving/rescuing), and Ms. Monroe has infused the story with equal amounts of heat and sweet. A perfect summer read. I received an ARC from author in exchange for my honest review. For more reading recommendations, visit Book Junkie Reviews at www.abookjunkiereviews.wordpress.com

It has been such a long time since I read a really fucking good book. It's nothing new - this one - but it blew me away. I read it through in one sitting. I didn't eat, didn't take my daily shit (uups TMI). And I just adored it. You know it was just one of these books, which will make you smile - whenever you think about it. It's really as I already said its nothing new or extraordinary out of space-ish. It's completely ordinary and it still took my breath away. Ugh, I did not want to write this down... but I am now stalking Lila Monroe (the author) down because this book is only available as an e-book. INCROYABLE!! I need this perfection in my bookshelf. This was my first Lila Monroe book and I can assure you - That my ass will read every other book of hers and the many in the future too. She won me over with this book. I’m not going to resume this whole boom for you (that’s why we have blurbs) and also because... you have to experience this book for yourself. Some scenes are so ridiculous you want to be there and see it with your own eyes. Some scenes will make you jump high and high-five yourself. Some scenes will make you tear up and you only want to hug Olivia and Ryan. Some scenes are so hot, you want Olivia out of the picture and have your ways avec (with) Ryan. I’ve read a lot of books in my rather short life - and this nearly tops’em all ;) I actually want to forget everything and start reading it from the beginning with no memory of it. I am really jealous of you guys. GO READ IT. MAKE YOURSELF SOME FAVOUR. TAKE YOUR CREDIT CARD OUT AND START READING! :) This book was like water after being forced to do sport for 5 hours straight. This book was sweeter than Swiss chocolate - and guys - I'm from Switzerland... I should know, right? If you're looking for a book with: - a story with amazing characters - a lot of passion - a red-hot read - a book, where the entertainment does not stop - seriously! - the (male)protagonist being so hot and so freaking tasty like a hamburger in hell - a story, where you will swoon until you faint - all in all, a really good story!!! - something, which will leave you with happy feels - again, an amazing male lead (seriously he is perfect) - a book - you don't want to put down, because - simply you can't - again, he is more than perfect (he reads books...asdfghjkl) Ryan will make you swoon like it's his damn job!! - wit and sass, well - humor (Guyyysss...you will be constantly smiling) - a story, where you finish with a big smile (it's perfect, actually) - short but still really hot scenes - again, very lovable characters then this book is the one for you! MY RATE: 5 of 5! On my blog.. there are some gifs which make the whole thing better... I am not looking for attention - I swear am not - *looksaway* *isnotguilty* my blog

    Easy breezy fun summer read. An arrangement between business woman and alpha female Olivia and hot sexy NFL Quarertback Ryan leads to something else. While this genre has been done repeatedly the author successfully injects her unique brand of hilarious one liners and some hawwt situations. The chemistry and banter between Olivia and Ryan can only be described as swoonworthy. The result is a worthwhile read perfect for easy summer reading. 3.5 stars!

    A fun, fast-paced read with some sizzling hot chemistry Whilst Wild Card is book 3 of a series, it can easily be read as a stand alone. However the previous two books are so good it's well worth finding the time to read them all! This is a hugely fun rom-com, with one crazy soon-to-be step mom, a super sexy hot jock of a hero, a heroine who really hasn't got it as together as first appearances would suggest and plenty of mad-cap action. I've read quite a few Lila Monroe books, so I was confident A fun, fast-paced read with some sizzling hot chemistry Whilst Wild Card is book 3 of a series, it can easily be read as a stand alone. However the previous two books are so good it's well worth finding the time to read them all! This is a hugely fun rom-com, with one crazy soon-to-be step mom, a super sexy hot jock of a hero, a heroine who really hasn't got it as together as first appearances would suggest and plenty of mad-cap action. I've read quite a few Lila Monroe books, so I was confident that this would be not only a well written story but also an enjoyable one too. I wasn't wrong. Olivia is the woman behind a high-class, sleaze free, 'rent-a-date' business. She's the one who arranges the perfect person for whatever the situation requires, not the one who takes part. When an extra picky client just so happens to need a pretend girlfriend at the same time as Olivia needs a hot 'plus one' for a wedding, well the stars are aligned and fate has cast her spell. Olivia has, briefly, appeared in both previous books, where she appeared to be a very sophisticated and poised woman. I loved seeing a different side of her in this book. There seemed to be an underlying message of it being easy to look at others and believe they are better than us. That somehow they have things together, when actually they suffer exactly the same worries and anxieties that we all do. This was true of both Olivia and Ryan and it just made them so much more endearing and believable because of it. Ryan was just so sweet and sexy, a hot jock but without being too alpha or smug. We don't get many chapters from his point of view but we don't need to. The genuine kindness and caring in his words, actions and deeds shone through in every chapter. I absolutely fell in love with this pair. The mad situations that Olivia found herself in, usually at the hands of her nemesis, were absolute works of genius. I would have got on the next flight home half a dozen times, but Olivia pulled up her big girl pants and bravely soldiered on. Thank goodness she did or we wouldn't have had such a wonderful story, or the steaming hotness that is Ryan! Whilst there are some very steamy scenes (and I'm not talking about the yurt 'incident' here), they aren't excessive or overly detailed but just enough to add a frisson of spice to the story. There's some very occasional bad language too, but this is a book I would be more than happy to recommend to both friends and family.

The plot of this book is what made me pick it up. Ex football star needs a fake girlfriend to impress some big wigs? Perfect. Said girl needs a fake boyfriend to take to her fathers wedding? Another layer that adds depth. The fact that the professional lines become muddled quite quickly? Yeah that adds up to an amazing story filled with steam and drama. Olivia is such an interesting character. At first, I wasn’t sure how I felt about her. Pretty quickly she is thrown into an interesting situation that actually endeared me to her. In the end, Olivia is a strong character with admirable characteristics. Ryan is more than he seems. At first, he comes off as a jerk, but fairly quickly, we are able to see he is much more than he seems. I loved his dominate personality and obvious compassion. The chemistry between these two was subtle at first, but as soon as they slipped, the chemistry came pouring out. I think something that always adds to the chemistry of a story is when the characters are denying the obvious and attempting to have self-control. This adds a layer that will eventually blow wide open, bleeding passion onto the pages. The heat in this story is on point. I liked the writing style of this book. The pace is steady. The characters are exactly who they should be. Even the minor characters are great. While I didn’t love some of them, their antics were just what the story needed. This story is told from a dual point of view. My only complaint about this book is that Olivia lost something in this book that I really wish would have been found some way. I thought I knew how that was going to be, but I was disappointed when it was kind of just forgotten. Overall, I loved this story. Even with the minor disappointment, this was a 5 star read for me. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put the book down. I wanted to keep flipping until I knew how this turned out. I would recommend this book to others and would love to not only read the next book, but also go back and read previous books as well.

Olivia is a workaholic, and spends almost every waking hour working on making The Agency the absolute best that it can be.  She's closed off, and frankly, she comes across as the Ice Queen of NYC.  When Ryan Callahan walks into her office looking for the perfect date to help him gain the upper hand with a group of investors, it looks like she's finally met her match when it comes to finding the perfect pairing.  Everyone she sets him up with fails his test, and she grows more and more frustrated.  However, when the perfect scenario passes her way, she can't help but suggest herself as his date for the event. I loved seeing Olivia and Ryan together, and learning more and more about Olivia's background.  Turns out, not only is she far from an ice queen, but she's also adorable and funny as can be.  Of the three books, she is probably my favorite heroine and I loved spending time with her.  She's a strong woman, with a backbone of steel, who has really made a name for herself.  But she's also sweet, caring, and really cares for those around her.  I can see now why she's so incredibily good at what she does, but I can't wait to see how she does now that she's found true love for herself! Ryan Callahan is an absolutely amazing heroine.  He's a retired football player, with big dreams of opening a chain of healthy fast food kiosks an restaurants across the country.  He's not looking for love, but with Olivia, it definitely comes looking for him.  He comes across as a real tough guy, but I enjoyed seeing his softer side with her.  There were just so many little moments with these two that made my heart melt a little.  Their romance was sweet and romantic, and definitely left a smile on my face. If you haven't read anything by Lila Monroe, than what are you waiting for?  She is definitely an author that you need to check out, especially if you love romantic comedy.  Anyone that loves authors like R.S. Grey and Meghan Quinn should find favor with Lila Monroe!  I know I did, and since my first read of hers, I've never looked back!

Ryan Callahan is on the verge of pitching the business deal of his life. But, the former football player needs someone by his side who can be the perfect companion for someone like him who isn't used to the inner workings of investor meetings.  With what feels like kismet, although the two don't really get along, Olivia and Ryan agree to help each other out. But when the deal starts to bring out a whole lot of real chemistry, this fake relationship is headed in a direction neither of them saw coming... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This book was a fun read! From the pre-wedding antics that are designed to torture Olivia, to the white hot attraction that Olivia and Ryan share, there was never a dull moment... Olivia is a strong and successful woman, but when she is forced to face her college nemesis (who is marrying her FATHER!!) she reverts back to the quiet and meek girl she once was. I would have loved for Olivia to not have taken so much ridiculous crap from the bride. While I had a little bit of respect for her character not wanting to interfere in her fathers happiness, I just didn't feel like the Olivia in this book had the personality of the woman I had seen glimpses of in previous books in this series.  Ryan is a retired football player who is working to get a financial backer for his new business venture. Growing up in a completely different environment from the one he will be entering into, he is nervous about finding someone to help him navigate his business dealings. While his first impression of Olivia is that she is way too uptight, he is in for a pleasant surprise when their relationship takes a turn for the can't-keep-their-hands-off-of-each-other... When a fake relationship starts to be more real than anything they have ever experienced, will Olivia and Ryan's newfound connection be able to stand the test of time...  I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
