Overview

Fall in love with the new hot and hilarious romantic comedy stand-alone from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!

Arthur 'Fitz' Fitzgerald is the hottest, most reckless playboy in town... and my new husband?!

Believe me, I never dreamed that I'd be walking down the aisle to a quickie marriage with a total stranger, but thanks to my eccentric god-mother, an iron-clad will, and a blind, three-legged cat called Alfred (don't ask), I need to get hitched ASAP. And when the perfect candidate leaves me at the alter, there's only one person crazy - and drunk - enough to step up at the last minute.

The best man.

Also known as the man most likely to get caught romping with three Rockettes in the back of a Sex and the City tourbus. The man who could melt my panties at twenty paces - and make me want to pour a bucket of ice-water over his head. The man I just pledged to love and honor and... oh god, WHAT HAVE I DONE?!

Our arrangement was clear: keep up the charade long enough for me to claim my inheritance and send my slime-ball cousins packing. Our plan is working perfectly.

Then Fitz decides to change the rules....

Can this fake marriage turn into something real? Find out in the latest hot and hilarious romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe

What a great addition to what has become one of my favourite series.This book was so good that I really didn’t want to put it down. I loved Best Man from start to finish; it was a fabulous read, full of great moments that really brought a smile to my face. Arthur “Fitz” Fitzwillam This is playboy Arthur “Fitz” Fitzwillam and Rebecca “Becca” Delaney’s story and oh what a story Lila Monroe weaved. Becca is desperate to gain her inheritance thereby saving all the tenants in the apartment block that she recently inherited; only catch is she has to be married to get it. That’s where through sheer desperation Fitz comes into play as he offers to be her “fake” husband . The chemistry between Fitz and Becca is off the charts and the line between reality and make believe soon blurs. Can their relationship based on pretence, morph into something real? Or will it all come crashing down? One click to find out…

What a perfect addition to a great series and even though Best Man is book 6 in the series I’m sure you can equally enjoy it as a stand-alone. Best Man is Playboy Arthur Fitzwilliam and Rebecca Delany’s story and what a tale they have to tell, I was captivated from the first page to the very last line and i really didn’t want this book to end ( a sure sign you are reading a great book). Rebecca is in urgent need of a fake husband so she can keep the apartment block she lives in with her quirky neighbors who are more like family to her. Fitz is the man who steps up to save her and be the fake husband ..... What starts off as a simple arrangement soon turns into so much more as lines are crossed, the chemistry is sizzling, the banter is perfect and loyalty between this group of quirky neighbors is everything I’m sure we would all love in our lifes. A highly recommended 5 star read that will appeal to all lovers of romance and rom coms. Looking forward to what’s come ng next from this very talented author .

I have thoroughly enjoyed Lila Monroe's Billionaire Bachelor series, and Best Man is the perfect finale to the series. In this final installment, Ms. Monroe adds a little twist; instead of a dashing billionaire in need of a fake date, it is the heroine who is in need. However, she doesn't just need a fake date, she needs a fake husband! Jilted at the altar by her contracted fake fiancé, Becca is doomed to lose her inheritance. She isn't after the money, she only wants to keep a promise to her benefactor, Marigold. When all seems lost, in walks Arthur Fitzgerald--Fitz to his friends--the best man at Becca's failed, fake wedding. Fitz, a world renown playboy comes to Becca's aid as a lark---"sure why not? It'll be a laugh" -- by marrying her. Both Becca and Fitz are likable characters. Becca's low-key lifestyle juxtapose to Fitz' high profile is great. The character development is organic, and as the two get to know one another, they become more empathetic and their list of things in common grows. I loved how the two supported and encouraged each other. The perfectly paced plot allows ample opportunity for everyone in the newlywed's atmospheric circle to chime in about this arrangement. From Becca's quirky apartment neighbors to Fitz' judgmental parents, the secondary characters provide plenty of laughs as well as some drama. My only issue with the story is how Fitz became the best man in Becca's failed fake wedding. There is no explanation for how or why Fitz is the best man know each other, and given their dichotomy, Scott and Fitz aren't even in the same social circle. Aside from that unexplained introduction to Fitz, the book is a whirlwind of laughs, drama, and romance.

This book was downright entertaining and interesting that I was hooked on the characters, the way they were, the sizzling tension and the banter was so incredible I couldn’t put it down!! If you are after a book to get you out of a reading funk this book will help definitely help you! I just loved Fitz, he was rather mysterious, a playboy and quite the charmer! I bet he could charm the pants off any woman!! Lol! Becca was a really caring devoted character and she had a way about her that made me want to be her friend! What she goes through and the connection that develops between her and Fitz is quite wonderful and steamy but sometimes things don’t always go the way you think! Drama galore but so worth reading! Can’t wait to see what the author has in store for us next!! Add it to your tbr list now!

4 Stars Review by Lisa Late Night Support Group Up All Night w/ Books Blog There is just something about books with fake marriages and a HEA. The Best Man, is number six in the Billionaire Bachelors series by Lila Monroe. It proves just how great this storyline can be. From start to finish we are on a whirlwind of almost marriage, marriage, dating, breaking up and all that in between stuff that makes a great story. This one is written so well it will suck you right in and keep you up all night 'til it's over. Becca is trying to keep it all together when her godmother leaves a stipulation in her will for her inheritance. Becca must be married to keep it. There's only one problem-she is not married and has no prospects. When her paid groom-to-be stands her up at the altar, none other than the Best Man steps up to the plate. All they have to do is keep it simple and "real" until the inheritance is in and her slimy cousin is out of the picture. When the Best Man, Fitz, starts changing the game plane, it can only mean one thing, steamy nights and late night conversations. With the secrets being hidden and conversations taken wrong, can they make it or will Becca lose everything she is working so hard to achieve? One thing I enjoyed about this story is the connection and the hidden secrets. The push and pull that Ms. Monroe pulled off with these characters are outstanding. Did I mention that the banter, off the wall laughing situations and lightheartedness, shines through this story? Well written and easy to read. It is written in dual point of views which is my favorite. I can’t wait for Poppy’s story.

5 Brilliant, 'saved the best 'til last' stars!! Lila Monroe never, ever fails to deliver the goods, and this proves to be the case with her newest offering to the rom/com gods… and avid readers alike. Following in the steps of the five previous books in this hilarious series of standalones, Best Man brings British toff and playboy extraordinaire Arthur Fitzwilliam Fitzgerald and zany, hard-working Rebecca Delaney together in a whirlwind of a fake marriage. Becca has been left an inheritance left by an elderly friend, but is being forced to wed as per the rule of the estate. She needs a spouse. ASAP!! She didn’t expect the hot stud she met in a bar to save the day for her. Arthur offers up his services just for a laugh, not knowing just how much he’s about to change his life for a gorgeous, sexy stranger. Arthur is the model of a playboy, and at times, a bit of a douche, but he didn’t know how to have a relationship and was trying his best. And his best… well, the man was certainly swoon-worthy, romantic and charming. He was also hot as sin and could melt panties at sixty paces. He and Becca were from two different worlds, but they somehow messed and were wonderful together. I loved this entire book. It had that warm fluffy feel that only the best romantic comedies can offer. There were some interesting secondary characters and I’m looking forward to reading their stories too.

This was one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time! Becca is so witty and funny and when she’s paired up with Fitz, they become a powerful couple in all categories. This book had me up late wanting to finish reading it and times where I was glad I was drinking something because it wouldn’t have been pretty from the caught off guard laughter! Than you Ms. Monroe for making my day, week, month, and year so much better!! Seriously, if you haven’t read one of her books, your life must be pretty dark because her books bring nothing but light.

Best Man is swoony, full of laughs, and riddled with enough sexual tension to set a building on fire. I’m a complete sucker for ‘fake relationship/marriage’ tropes, and Best Man hit the mark! With an inheritance on the line that comes with certain conditions, Becca is in dire need of a husband…like, yesterday. But when her soon-to-be husband ditches her at the last minute, Becca goes from desperate to hopeless. So when Fitz, a complete stranger – granted, an utterly sexy, British stranger – steps in to fill the role, Becca soon realizes that being fake married to a drop-dead gorgeous and charming heartthrob might not be so bad…or it might be the biggest mistake she’s made in her life. I really loved this story! Not only does it have dynamic chemistry and attraction between Fitz and Becca (which, believe me…WOW) and is layered with humor and witty banter, it’s filled with heartwarming emotions and actions that seem truly uncommon in today’s society. It showcases the lengths to which one person with go to protect those around them, even if it’s at the cost of wagering one’s own heart in the process to a love that’s unknown. This book makes me want to get ‘fake married’ myself, but I don’t think my husband would approve of that. *sigh* Oh, well. Such is life. I’m really sad to see this series come to an end. Best Man is a fabulously written romantic comedy and the author is an absolute genius. And in the spirit of looking on the bright side, I’m incredibly anxious and excited for what she’s bringing us next! Well done, Lila! 5 Stars!

This is the sixth book in the Billionaire Bachelor Series centering around Olivia Danver’s unique matchmaking agency for the rich and famous. If you need a fake girlfriend or fiancé to impress the boss or get your family off your back, this is the agency for you. The one rule is no hanky-panky (though that rule seems to be more of a suggestion in this series). While the first five books have a male Billionaire hiring the agency, this installment has Becca, a non-Billionaire doing the hiring. Becca needs to be married in order to inherit the apartment building she lives in. If she doesn’t get married, the building will go to the greedy nephew of the deceased owner, and all the folks living there will be kicked out. The man Olivia sends to marry her bolts, and the best man (who the “groom” met in a bar the night before) steps up and marries her. Arthur Fitzwilliam is a British Playboy who is quick with a glib quip. He decides to marry Becca as a lark, but as they get to know each other, their attraction grows. This book has the typical Lila Monroe wit and humor. What kept this from a five star book was the villain, who was a little two dimensional (I almost expected him to twirl his mustache and tie the heroine to the train track). Overall it was a fun read. I was given an ARC of this book from the author for my honest review.

Well whatever expectations I have for this book Lila blew them out of the water. Becca and Fitz are not what we would call a traditional couple by any stretch of the imagination. Becca runs into Fitz at a bar after she is left at the alter bu her arranged fiance. By a twist of fate Fitz was supposed to be the Best Man at the wedding and offers to take the place of the groom to help Becca out of her jam. What follows next is nothing short of hilarious as playboy Fitz plays the doating husband to ensure Becca can meet her obligations. A brilliant, funny, sexy read. “So here we are.” Fitz slings an arm around my shoulder. “Happily married. And I’ve got to tell you, there’s nothing like newlywed sex to spice things up. Am I right, Pooh bear?” I’m going to kill him. “Well, he’s glossing over a few things,” I say, wanting to wipe that smirk off his face. “Like his performance anxiety. But it’s fine, it happens to most guys after a few too many drinks. And once we figured out he could only rise to the occasion playing YouTube videos of My Little Pnoy, it was smooth sailing from there on out!” Fitz’s jaw drops. i keep beaming. “Plus, the Rogaine is working out great, don’t you think? You can’t even tell it’s not his natural hair.” “Baby a word?” Fitz glares at me. I pat his hand. “Aw, I know you’re shy, but like you said, we’re all friends here.”
