Heck. I wanted to like this so much more than I did, I'm sad. The cover is so cute and the whole idea and description was so appealing, I just had to read it asap. The book was fine, decent and quite cute, but it just was also kinda 'meh' and there wasn't too much that was memorable about it. The characters were good but I didn't feel a huge connection between them. In general this was fine but it wasn't my favourite, ya know? I think others will really love this, though. It just ...more

The Romeo Effect was a nice,funny and enjoyable read.
Seth and April met for the first time in her flower shop and in the following days she kept seeing him around her neighborhood.She is an hopeless romantic and she thought it was fate they kept encounter each other like that but maybe there is a certain someone who is pulling the strings here.
I liked the main characters and I was really curious to know if and how they would have get their happily ever after.

This a classic story of falling in love unexpectedly.
Lila Monroe is one of my faves. Her books are always mood-boosters, and this one is no different.
I'm sure you've already read the blurb so I won't repeat that here...
It's a light and easy read. Sexy, funny and swoony all rolled into one. It's something you'd want to read and escape to after a long day.
I'm always amazed at how Lila Monroe manages to produce something new and fresh each time. April and Seth are both eminently likeable characters, a little 'caricatured' but that's part of what I love about the books. So many rom-coms rely on improbable events and unrealistic plot devices for humour. That can't be said of The Romeo Effect. It won't have you busting a rib laughing, instead it has a warm, gentle humour that is mixed with great ...more

Seth Harding is the man behind the scenes, the puppet master if you will.
What happens though when the man he is helping turns out to be Mr. Wrong and Seth himself may well be Mr. Right?
There is so much initially not to like about Seth, he is cynical and at times not very likeable whilst also being attractive and magnetic.
Can the sparks and chemistry between Seth and April lead to something meaningful?
I loved April and Seth grew on ...more
