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 ...more

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 ...more
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.
There was never any doubt, in my mind, that I wou ...more

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 ...more

Was this book the best out of the series? No.
Was it so good, that I couldn't even put it down? YES!
Was it perfect from page one to the last one? YES (Wait ---- no... the cover is perfect tooo! *drools*)

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 ...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 ...more

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 ...more
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.
A new to me author who has been on my TBR for a while now, I wasn’t sure quite what to expect so I was a little surprised at how quickly I was pulled into the story (boy, did I hate Rob right ...more

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.
I’m in love with S ...more
