Have you watched those clever women on the home reno shows on HGTV? They can not only build, renovate and have a flair for interior design but they are gorgeous too. Stella is one of those ladies, apart from the HGTV bit. She has her own construction company and has a passion for old buildings with good bones that can be brought back to life.

Stella has recently split from her cheating ex, who is also in the same industry as herself so they often tender against each other. They are both pitching

Did someone call for a doctor?

No?....well, you’ll need one after reading Mr. Casanova! I know I do!

In true Lila Monroe fashion, Mr. Casanova checks all the boxes in a good book: sizzling chemistry, humor, playfulness, and an entirely unscripted fairytale romance. The storyline pushes the boundaries of a typical “man’s world” profession and flips the script when it comes to truth and trust.

I loved this book! I know I’ve said it over and over again when it comes to the author’s books, but I just c

Luke Rafferty might have played Mr. Casanova for 10 years, but his smooth talking and charming moves seem to be a thing of the past, both on the small screen and in real life, and with Luke’s image in need of a makeover, it’s up to Stella Lane to help Luke reclaim his heartthrob status as his fake girlfriend while she also works to get her home renovation business up and running by setting her sights on Luke’s beach hideaway. But while Luke and Stella both have a stake in their ‘relationship,’ t

Luke gets away from his crazy ex and hides out/reboots himself in the Hamptons. Luke is a famous actor, and the press is hungry for anything he's doing. He is trying to get his image rehabbed from the craziness rumours were spread about him from his devil of an ex. Enter Stella, Stella renovates homes, and is bidding on Lukes home.

Mr. Casanova is just another gem in the crown of her success!

This is the story of Luke and Stella...

Stella is a home renovator, she is a female working in a male dominated field and unfortunately it is not a easy job for her.  But she loves it and she continues to persevere!

She has a once in a lifetime opportunity fall into her lap and she jumps at the chance!

Rules are in place for a reason, but you know with Lila Monroe’s Billionaire Bachelors series, the rules always seem to be broken. Not to fret, Ms. Monroe’s broken rules lead to some smexy romance, angsty story tension and a satisfying HEA.

Mr. Casanova has become one of my favorites in Ms. Monroe’s series of standalone romance novellas. Each story centers on the premise of a fake relationship (not an escort) set up by an agency. In Mr. Casanova, Luke Rafferty is an actor on the outs in Hollywood

*Swoon* who would think that a hunky actor and a klutzy house renovator would be a match made in heaven? (Or at least a match made via an iron clad, water tight contract.)

Mr Casanova by Lila Monroe, is the fifth book in a series of stand alone rom-coms, based around a high class 'girlfriends for high' company. Whilst this featured a few of the previous characters their books do not need to have been read in order to enjoy or understand this story.

I would not be overstating it to say I think Ms. Monroe has been spying on my DVR most watched lists to bring together a bunch of things I love...a Lila Monroe book, HGTV type renos, complete with shiplap (hooray Chip & Joanna reference), cozy little beach towns, hilarious friends as side characters and ah, love. I fell hopelessly in love with Mr Casanova.

Stella is a general contractor and all around renovation expert. Staying competitive in a male dominated field is hard enough without her too

I really enjoy Lila Monroe’s romantic comedies, and I’ve read quite a few of them. She always balances out the heat in her stories with plenty of humor, keeping her plots entertaining without a lot of angst or unnecessary drama resulting in light-hearted, easy-reading romances. She pulls me right into the story with her vividly descriptive, detail-rich writing style. She threads those elements into creative plots that consistently produce fun and sexy romcoms that always provide me

Goes down as another off my 2019 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A book from a ‘one click buy’ author. What is it about going out on boat trips and getting stuck on islands? Sure leads to fun times to be had in the sun. If you are looking for fun, flirty, hot reads then this is the author for you.

Luke and Stella seem like a case of opposites attracting. She is a general contractor, and is no stranger to getting her hands - and the rest of her - dirty. Tired of losing out on contracting jobs because of her ex-husband's competing business (the fact that he's *not* a female general contractor seems to make people forget Stella is the better qualified), she proposes a crazy win-win scheme when she overhears Luke and his manager talking about his situation. And like the blurb says, they hit i ...more

I loved this story. It was sweet, sexy, so romantic and funny. Everything I could possibly want and have come to expect from a Lila Monroe story.

I absolutely adore this Billionaire Bachelors Series, and each book is wonderful. Mr Casanova was no exception and Luke & Stella's story was perfect.

With Luke trying to get his image in a better light following a messy split from his ex-wife who is circulating all sorts of rubbish about him, plus his less than perfect ways in recent months, he needs to

I have throughly enjoyed this series. It can be a bit formulaic and predictable, but I love the characters. That is what has kept me coming back for more.
Mr. Casanova was a slightly different set up, but it had the great characters.
Unlike past couples who have gone to “The Agency” to set up their fake relationships, Luke and Stella come to terms on their own. Only after their deal is set, do they seek out Olivia to put in all in writing and keep it legal. At least behind the scenes. To the pub

I'm grateful to receive my 4th Lila Monroe ARC! Yes, 4th! Pretty awesome huh?

This book doesn't disappoint. Yes, the storyline of being in a fake arrangement isn't something we all haven't read before but this one has it's own uniqueness... mainly because I personally haven't read anything about a woman-contractor in a fake relationship with a movie star.

I was engrossed page after page, and the butterflies just kept on coming... It was an easy read—none of those overly dramatic and fancy

Billionaire Bachelors Book 5, this was my first book in the series. I knew going in this was a part of a series (and would have figured it out anyway from a few paired up secondary characters) but this absolutely worked well as a stand-alone.

Is there anything better than a hunky actor trying to get his life back on track?

Well, when it comes to Luke Rafferty, I’m going to have to say no. There is nothing better. Though he may get a bad rap, this man is all kinds of swoony. He’s everything you’d expect a Hollywood heartthrob to be, except without all that annoying ego that typically gets in the way. He’s down to earth, surprisingly sweet, and oozes charm. And did I say hunky? Because that word doesn’t do him justice.
