What happens when you wake up in a hotel suite next to a gorgeous naked man with absolutely no memory of the past twelve hours?

I guess it's true what they say. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

Or at least I hope it stays here. The Romantic Style convention was meant to be a weekend of raucous fun with friends, sun, and enough poolside margaritas to forget about my ex

5 "Opposites Attract" Stars

My first book by Lila Monroe and I'm hooked and maybe little in love with her. Get Lucky was hilarious, so sweet, and the perfect afternoon read when life feels a bit too serious. Julia and Nate's crazy Vegas adventure was pure drunken goodness and will be a book I reread when I need a good laugh and and sweet happy ever after.

Waking up in a strange room with a stranger was not on either Julia or Nate's to do list for the weekend. Julia is a newly divorced romance wri

I am in love with Julia. She is my Spirit animal. Waking up with no memory of what happened the night before with a gloriously naked man is anyone’s idea of a wild and wonderful time. Come along with Julia and Nate while they try and seam back together the tattered pieces of their memories of the night before and find exactly what they were missing in each other. Get lucky is HILARIOUS. I loved every moment from the begining chapter to the epilogue and I have become a complete and utter

Having never read a Lila Monroe book before I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this one. The blurb with a fascinating setting like Vegas and of course the sexy as sin cover made me try this one out and honest to God I didn’t regret it for one moment. Why? Because 'Get Lucky' was one hell of an entertaining read! This little gem was hilarious, sexy and also sweet at times, so if you are looking for a light, delightful read, look no further.

Waking up in Vegas with no memory…Oh Geez, I’m reading one of those books…AGAIN. Nooooo!!

Thankfully, I was wrong. In the first couple of chapters I was thinking – this author has put her blood sweat and tears into this…I must force myself to read on. Then, things sort of changed. I started grinning, groaning and blushing. What I thought was going to be a humdrum - What Happens in Vegas… ended up being so much more. I was busting a gut laughing

Get Lucky is an enchanting, steamy, delightful read I never wanted to end!

To say I found my first Lila Monroe book a success would be an understatement. I couldn't get enough. I DID NOT WANT IT TO END! EVER! It was SOOOO good! Actually, it was BEYOND good. Everything from the plot, to the main characters, to the supporting characters was PERFECTION. Our Hero and Heroine, Nate and Julia, were unique, charismatic, all around bewitching! They undoubtedly became two of my favorite characters. I lov

As I was reading this book, I kept thinking it read like a madcap, screwball comedy from the 1930s or 1940s but with glow-in-the-dark condoms and a parrot kidnapping. And a hero who is "Mr. Grumpy Cat transformed into a human being." God, it's so damn funny and sexy.

Julia's in Vegas for a romance writer's convention. Nate's in Vegas because his best friend is getting married. They get drunk and hook up--but can't remember what happened. So the rest of the book is spent unraveling their wild Vega

Writing a funny erotic romance novel is not easy. I have read a lot of romance novels and the ones that go for light hearted and hot fall into 3 categories: Those that work. Those that focus on the humor too much and forget to focus on the heat and passion. Those that force the humor in-between the sex, but you can tell the humor was an afterthought.

This one just works. Lila Monroe did a 5 star perfec

Julia Stevens and Nate Wexler are both in Las Vegas for entirely different reasons— Julia's there with her agent and author friends for the Romantic Style Convention, and Nate's there for the wedding of his best friends, Mike and Stacy. After a literal run-in at the lobby and a bad impression, the two do not expect to cross paths again, much less wake up in the same bed the next day with no recollection of what happened the night before. But's it's Vegas. Everything and anything you want to do, ...more
3.5 Stars

Overall Opinion: This was a cute, funny, sexy, light read. I definitely had some moments where I was giggling and trying not to wake my husband up, but I did think that other times it was a little OTT and trying to hard to be reminiscent of the hangover. This would be a good read for in between heavy or dark ones to keep your spirits up :)

Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Julia and Nate's story. The story starts hangover style with them waking up with no recollection as to what

*Firstly I would like to thank Lila as I've had a pretty shit 24 hours and this book gave me a little escape and I lot of laughs when I didn't feel like laughing*
I loved this book so much and is one of my new favourite lila monroe books.
The storyline was fantastic and I especially enjoyed the dynamic between Nate and Julia.
The chemistry those two had was white hot sizzling alpha meets dreamy.
Even a blind person could sense their chemistry.

This was a really fun and light book. I really enjoyed this one- lots of humor but it was also sexy and really sweet. Looking forward to reading more by this author.
OMG! I've NEVER had SO MUCH FUN while reading a book! This was insanely good, ridiculously sexy, AND extremely hilarious! Who is Lila Monroe and where the HELL has she been all my life! I want MORE dammit! A woman who is in LOVE with LOVE like it's her job (well, it kinda is) and a man hell-bent on never letting love in again, wake up in bed together not having ANY idea on how they got there OR anything that happened last night. These two could not be any more different, but they have to put the ...more

My first Lila Monroe book and my god, I'm buying all her books while writing this review.

Get Lucky may not bring anything new as far as storylines go - grumpy, skeptical divorce attorney and a freshly divorced romance author who still hopes for her own happy ending, we all know the types. Got drunk in Vegas and had the best night of their lives, now who remembers if they are married too, or not? Nothing new there, right? False.

Ms. Monroe delivers the story in such a brilliant way, I could have

I had a great time reading this funny, interesting and most of all cheerful book. Nate Wexler and Julia Stevens kept me good company and made me "suffer" alongside them, with their antics and snide comments, while they made me hot and bothered with their sexual chemistry which was off the charts, but sadly that was the only thing they had chemistry on! I Needed something more, but it was still very pleasant!

I'd like to start off by saying that Nate had me at:


Gotta love a man who appreciates Deadpool!

There were many funny moments in this book, which would be expected when you pair a free spirit with a tight ass. I liked everytime that Julia got Nate to loosen up. Slowly learning about what happened that night/morning in Vegas was a riot.

The many Doctor Who references were a tad annoying but the awkward laughs made it worthwhile. I can't really complain because I'm a nerd myself so I could appreciat

I really thought I would love this one because the blurb sounded so good. However, this one was just not for me unfortunately. Others have enjoyed this one so don't let my opinion keep you from giving this one a try.

When Julia and Nate meet in Las Vegas they didn't know what the next few days had in store for them.

Julia is a best selling author who at heart believes in love despite her recent divorce. She's in Vegas for a romance author convention (think RT).

Nate is in town for his best friend's wedding. Being a divorce lawyer he of course is a mega cynic on couples getting the HEA.

Cue to them waking up in a bed and not remembering what happened the night before. The whole premise is like Hangov

What happens when you mix Vegas with Tequila (and a lot of alcohol)? What happens when you have a bitter yet successful divorce attorney and a funny and happy romance writer?
Well, you get The Hangover: Romantic Comedy. A short and funny story.

With Julia, there’s nothing to worry about. Even when we want to kill each other, it’s easy.

What do you get when you throw a romance author and a jaded divorce attorney together. LOTS of sparks!! :-D

This book was a lot of fun. The banter between Nate and Julia was hilarious. Seeing these two trying to figure out what happened the night before after they woke up together in bed, very naked and hung-over was excellent. These two sure did they everything they could on their drunken night in Vegas

Well this was ridiculously FUN . I had just put down a very blah book when this ARC popped up in my kindle and boy did I get lucky LOL
I laughed thru 99.9% of this book …no wait, 100% LOL
The entire story-line is 2 days long. That’s right kids, TWO DAYS … but it was fun and complete. It didn’t miss a beat. It was exactly as it should have been because how else does one experience Vegas but with a quick, dirty, hilarious 48 hours?!?! #perfect
