What if there was one man—one gorgeous, brilliant, sexy as hell man—who was meant for you?

Yeah, well, there isn’t. Love is a hard slog up a snowy mountain infested with rabid cougars, and meant-to-be love is just a lie. I learned that the hard way when all my romantic dreams went up in smoke, and the boy I loved walked away without looking back.

Or so I thought…

Wow! Just Wow! I freakin’ loved this book so much!! I just adore the Magnificent Bastard Consulting series and I wish it wouldn’t end. They are so funny, lighthearted and sexy while still having some deeper story line and Nate and Addie’s story is no exception.

There was so much depth of character to our hero and heroine especially since they first met and bonded over a horror book and fell in love at ages 16 and 18. But after their one glorious summer together before college, they did not see e

Another great read by Lili Valente.
Talk about two people who were meant to be...Addie and Nate were definitely that couple.
I loved their story...Addie is the nice, sweet, kind, patient girl who I was wanting to get a happy ending. Addie was just a baby when her worlds feel a part, but she grew into a beautiful young women who deserved better then what life offered her.
Nate was just a young boy himself when a chance encounter with a smart lipped, pretty girl with glasses crossed his path. Those t

A Phantasmic, Sexy, and Romantic Second Chance at Love that will give you shivers of more than one kind. "Meant For You" is a novel in the Magnificent Bastard family. The heroine's Adeline, the beleaguered companion for the demanding old lady who lives in Shane's apartment building. The hero's the latest "Magnificent Bastard" in training, Nate. In "Incredible You" Adeline obviously recognized Nate and wants Shane to remain tight-lipped about it. Lili Valente gives the reader a playful, sexy, and ...more

Unfortunately, this one didn't work all that well for me. The writing was fine and it moved along at a nice pace. It was just ALL over the place storywise for me.

I didn't particularly like either Nate nor Addie. I'm usually not overly bothered by people (99% of the time the hero) moving on after a separation, but in this instance, I found it extremely annoying that 18-year-old Nate who claimed he was SOOO in love with 16 years old Addie moved on to have a fabulous career and sleep with a bunch o

If I had to sum this book up with one word...Perfection!

If you've read the other books about Magnificent Bastard Consulting, then you've surely seen mention of Adeline. She is the shy, bookish neighbor to the loud and outgoing Shane. While Addie is happy to take the backseat and be the perfectly sweet girl that everyone would like as a friend, she is meant for so much more.

After meeting the love of her life at the young age of 16 and having her heart broken shortly after, Addie's life never tur

Confession: I had to read this book twice because I turned the pages so fast the first time I wanted to go back and savor the book for what it is.

Meant For You: A Sexy, Flirty, Dirty Romance by Lili Valente is book 4 in the Magnificent Bastard Series. This is a standalone and you don't have to read the other 3 but I'm not sure why you wouldn't.

Addie (Einstien) and Nate (Pretty Devil) meet when they are 16 & 18 and on their way to college. They have the summer that we all dreamed about as giggly

OMG OMG OMG!!!! There are not enough stars for this book!!!

This can be read as a standalone but some of the character interaction might be confusing, but not unreadable.

Meant for You is a standalone, but it's part of the Magnificent Bastard series. I love this series. So much! Lili Valente knows just what I need when I need to read it! She can always make me laugh, swoon, smile, get hot and bothered and in this case, get the chills! I loved that this story isn't her normal rom-com, but it has a different feel. Fate, destiny and yes, a little supernatural feel. I, of course, love a little paranormal in my romance, so I enjoyed this story! We've met Adaline befor ...more

***ARC Provided for An Honest Review***

Unfortunately, this book really didn't work for me. Also unfortunately, the reason for this is a giant spoiler about one of the plot points, so there is no way to discuss the issue I had with the book without giving it away.

I will leave it with the idea that I liked the writing and the characters. The plotting was ok, it was even. However, I was not able to get into the story due to the plot issue that I had with this.

I know this is terribly vague, but with

While technically this can be read as a stand alone it is part of a series. Thankfully I had read the first one so I had a little background. This had a very mild paranormal bit toward the end of the story. Not enough that I would call it a PNR. A cute storyline of fated love. A second chance trope. I listened to the audio version of this.

Sooooo good!! This story included not only the humor of the other books in the series, but a pretty cool PNR element that I loved. Both Nate and Addie were put through so much that tore them apart, but fate works in mysterious ways!! Addie and Nate were my favorite by far.

Meant For You by Lili Valente was a pleasant surprise. I had thought that it would be closer to your typical contemporary romance novel with popular themes and good writing. But What I got was a little bit of magic, spirits from beyond and a whole lot of coincidence-or was it?!

Nate and Adeline have a unique relationship. They fell in love one summer long ago. They were going to change the world together. Had colourful high expectations of where there would end up together. Citing love as a cure

This book was pretty cute. It was not at all like the first ones. Which was nice. The first three books where seriously based on the Magnificent Bastard Consulting company and it's clients. This one was not. The male MC worked for MBC. But that's it. And while I love that storyline it was nice to get something new.

Adeline and Nate knew each other when they were kids. They were active ghost hunters together. Nate was 18 and Addie was 16. They fell in love and he took her virginity. Well some stuf

This book for me sounded good at the synopsis. Then, I realized it was nothing like as described. I found myself with more questions than answers. The story was so hard to follow. There was so many things that turned me off.

For one, I didn't lie neither Nate nor Addie. There was qualities about both of them that I found annoying. Like, Addie let everyone push her around and walk all over her. Nate was kind of a dummy too. He never really fought for Addie. Or looked for her.

I am just at a loss

The beginning of this was sad, the way they got separated from each other for 7 years was awful. They were meant to be though. How random that they would meet at a retreat? Addie wasn't my favorite woman in this series, but she was hurt young and I understand why she treated Nate like that. I mostly was mad because she ran away and made a bad decision that almost killed herself and another person. Nate seemed like a pretty good guy overall, although he could have fought for Addie more when they ...more

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. And you’ve always been my favorite mystery.”

How is it possible to fit SO MANY good things in one book? Good things including (but not limited to) fun and flirty romance, silly business, boatloads (gondola-loads?!) of humor, and mysterious, *looks left and right* what’s happening? moments. I may not know how, but I do know that Lili Valente absolutely managed it in this wonderful, feel good read.

Meant For You by Lili Valente is a standalone second chance romance told in dual POV between Nate and Adaline. While it does loosely follow on from other books in Lili's Magnificent Bastard Consulting non-series it, just like all the others, CAN be read as a standalone. I'm always so eager to dive into anything Lili has written I didn't even realize the tie in until a few chapters into the story and it was a pleasant surprise.

What a great book! The author has written a great storyline with bits of humor, sadness, romance and a dash of superstition thrown in. Not to mention it stars two people you can’t help but fall in love with and root for them to find some type of happiness from life.

Nate and Addie meet as young kids and spend one glorious summer as 1st time lovers. But as fate would have it, summer ends and life doesn't turn out as they had planned. Instead they spend 7 years floundering through lives that have t

Meant for You was a great read with lots of treats laced throughout.

Nate and Adeline were great and I loved how Lili captured both of their quirky sides. Meant for You is not your typical Lili Valente story, well it is in the way of sense of humor and the hot n' steamy sex scenes; but i definitely loved the added bonus of a little bit of paranormal. It definitely worked for me and for this couple in particular, as this is how they were brought together to begin with!

What an unexpected surprise this book was! I thought it was going to be a romantic comedy and second chance romance (which it was), but there were also paranormal elements woven into the story too. Honestly, I'm normally not a fan of paranormal, but in this case it worked well with the characters and plot. This is book 4 in the Sexy Flirty Dirty series, but can be read as a stand alone.

I loved the author's sense of humor and found myself laughing out loud many times throughout this book. The wit

I really loved this funny, romantic story. I couldn't help myself when it came to laughing out loud at the antics of these two people. Nate and Addie are just the perfect couple. To have a young love that is torn away and comes back together, is such a great story line. Lili Valente gives the listener/reader a quality book. The depth of the characters was amazing. The listener really gets to know these characters. The narrators were excellent. Loved both of them. Looking for more Valente books. ...more

I have to say that this was a okay book, I really felt for Addie but my feelings for Nate wasn't like all the other book boyfriends I have read and he came across to me a a$$. The storyline was kind of all over the place and I had a hard time keeping up with what was in the present and what was actually real. I kept reading because I wanted to see if Nate would redeem himself and by the end I can say he wasn't as bad but h

This second chance was cute and tragic at the same time. But I enjoyed how it all came together.

I really wanted to like this book, I really did. But it didn't quite work for me. I've read a few of Valente's previous work and loved those, but this one didn't click with me as I hoped it would.

Valente does a solid job with her writing and manages to keep things flowing very smoothly. I couldn't connect with the characters and story, itself. There were some moments that seemed so odd to have.

Like many, I'm a fan of second chance romances, when two fall so deeply in love and something happens

This was my 1st book by Lili Valente and it was a cute story about the one that got away and how there are always two sides to every story and sometimes we really need to know both sides to truly understand what happens in relationships. I loved the jump and flash back it flowed well and I felt for Addy but it also made it hard for me to LOVE Nate as a book boyfriend.

Although I enjoyed this book and had fun reading it there were a few times where I was like....huh??? Wit

"ARC received voluntarily for an honest review**

Nate & Adeline met one summer when they were teenagers and had a summer fling. By the end of the summer, their fling had turned into something more. Adeline was from a very religious family and Nate dad controlled even what he ate literally. "Something" happened and these two were separated and hadn't seen each other for eight years.

One of the things that attracted these two was their love for ghost stories. Fast forward 8 years and they meet again
