Very Irresistible Playboy
Very Irresistible Playboy is a quick, light, and fun fake relationship romance that gives a fresh and OTT take on the inheritance trope. Hallie and Max will take you on a goose chase and a sweet, whirlwind romance. This book has everything I absolutely adore about Ms. Monroe's writing; it's funny, sweet, and has characters you'll love.
Hallie Gage and Max Carlisle first meet at a wedding, with Hallie as one of the photographers and Max one of the guests. While the encounter was brief, albeit a ...more
The beginning of the book was good but if I want to be honest it didn't catch me that much but when the antics of the storyline get started I was hooked. It was a little predictable but it's a funny, fast and easy read.
overall I can say I enjoyed this light romantic comedy!
Hallie is desperate, she has no money to pay her rent and had an unfortunate d ...more
VIP (Very Irresistible Playboy) by Lila Monroe is the first in a brand new romantic comedy series aptly titled Billionaire Bachelors. I’ve grown to absolute ADORE Ms. Monroe’s writing style and creative character development. It’s smart. It’s precise. It’s sexy. VIP is laced with so much humor that it had me in absolute stitches on more than one occasion. Romantic Comedy is Lila’s sp ...more
ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.
I liked the ideas and the storyline of this one, particularly the antics that amounted because of Franklin.
I didn't connect with characters personally, but I liked the plot and liked the characters. It was interesting how things played out, not everything surprised me, but some parts of the story definitely did.
Max and Hallie worked well together in more ways when than one and the story flowed nicely as well. There was only a li ...more
Hot bachelor Max Carlisle is heir to a media empire, tabloid catnip, and... wants to hire me to be his fake fiancee. I know what it takes to keep a billionaire in line, but signing up for seven days in close quarters with this Very Irresistible Playboy? It's just asking for trouble. The kind of thrilling, reckless trouble I could use a little more of since my career is currently ass-backwards in a mud bath with six shih-tzus (don't ask). ...more
I'm sorry if I'm harsh but I'm just tired of reading the same book with a slightly different plot. I don't even know why I decided to read it in the first place.
The start gave me an awkward feeling, probably because the main characters were average, the dialogue - flat and it wasn't good at all. I confess I've skipped a lot and still d ...more
I loved this story.
The storyline was so engaging and the writing so fluid I've finished it too quicly and now I'm regretting it because I have to wait until April to read the second book in this series.
Hallie and Max journey was adveturous,hot and full of discoveries and feelings.
4 It's Real CROWNS
The first book in the Billionaire Bachelor series is entertaining in all of it romantic comedy glory. With a cast of characters to make you laugh, a heroine and hero with great chemistry, and a plot that isn't what one expects, readers will become immersed in this brand new world.
Max and Hallie's chemistry is what drives this book. Their banter is on point, and when they touch, it is electric. Even seperately, they are great characters, although ...more
I've been looking forward to Very Irresistible Playboy since getting a sneak peek of it at the end of Christmas with the Billionaire (where we meet Hallie's big brother) and I was far from disappointed now that it's finally here! Max and Hallie story has the humor, tension, and sexiness that I've come to expect from Lila Monroe in spades. It was more of a slow burn than some of the other books I've read by her, but that makes sense consi ...more
But as they say, never judge a book by its cover, and this end up being a really sweet and heartwarming romance. The main characters were great and I love how their relationship progressed and how hilarious they were at times. Definitely give this one a try if you're looking for a solid romance story.

Steam: 6 out of 10.
Max meets Hallie at a wedding where she is working as a photographer's assistant. She used to be the PA to Jack Callahan (Perfect Match) and knows how to handle a billionaire playboy. She quit her job as Jack's PA to get back to her love of photography. She gets a call to interview at Carlisle Publishing and pretty much gets treated like dirt from the editor who is just appeasing her because she has already pretty much given ...more
Very Irresistible Playboy is the perfect shot of cognac you need - the immediate burn of desires, the warming flow of emotions through you, and the buzzing sensations of wanting more. This book is a definite must-read that makes you wish for your own treasure hunt of hotness!
Lila Monroe did it again, this beautiful story is so romantic, funny and very well done.!!
Max and Hallie are so sweet together, they are so fun together, fun book to read.
Hot and billionaire, sweet and beautiful lady is a great formula for a great love story.
I skim and skip, no connection with the hero and heroine, I failed to feel their chemistry. I was not convinced of their romance.
The only thing I found interesting was the treasure hunt, other aspects of the book (plot, dialogue, character development) felt a little flat to me.
It was sweet and to-the-point and simple but the story still grabs you and makes you read into the night.
I loved how both Max and Hallie were honest with each other.
And I loved especially there was no unnecessary melodrama.
Oh, there was drama. But the kind that you liked.
I can't wait for more from this author.
We maya have dreams, to chase or not to chase it all depends on our own. Sometime, things will follow your flow and did the as your own plan, to be honest, most of them don’t.
Max and Hallie are the same type of people, too naive but with a golden heart.
From the sexy cover to the intriguing synopsis, Monroe delivers a truly entraining read filled with lots of romance and steamy scenes to keep you reading until the very end. In Very Irresistible Playboy we get to meet Hallie, an aspiring photographer whose dream is to branch out on her own and make a name for herself in the business. While she saves money to do that, Hallie takes side work in photography hoping to slowly get her name out t ...more
Inheritance on the line√
Insane attraction and chemistry between hero/heroine√
I’ve learned after reading my fair share of romantic comedies that when the above three circumstances mix together, it’s anybody’s guess how everything is going to play out, but one thing is for sure, by the time the story is over, readers will be thoroughly spent giggling, swooning, and shaking their heads at the antics of both the hero and the heroine and what develops out of their ‘all for show’ rom ...more
VIP is everything you could possibly want from a Lila Monroe book.
