Overview

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

Hot TV star Luke Rafferty is Hollywood's newest bad boy... at least, according to the tabloids. He's been steaming up the screens as Dr. Casanova for ten years, but thanks to his ex-wife, some tricky contract negotiations, and that incident with the stethoscope (don't ask), he's suddenly on an extended vacation - with his heartthrob career on the line.

Enter Stella Hartwick.

A Hamptons local, she's trying to get her home renovation company off the ground; winning the job for Luke's new beachfront retreat would be her big break. And when she just happens to overhear his agent suggesting a fake relationship to give his reputation a swoon-worthy makeover, Stella sees the perfect solution to both their problems.

What's a little fake smooching between friend(ly professionals)?

Stella is determined to keep her eyes on the prize renovation and her hands OFF the hunky actor wandering shirtless through her construction site. But Luke has other ideas. Midnight skinny-dipping ideas.

If only he wasn't so heart-stompingly, panty-twistingly handsome...

Soon, sparks are flying, and they're both forgetting their kisses are just for show. But can this fake relationship weather a very real tabloid storm? Or will past betrayals and the Hollywood spotlight drive them apart before their romance has even begun?

Find out in the new 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 year.This book was so good that I really didn’t want to put it down. I loved Mr.Casanova from start to finish; it was a fabulous read, full of great moments that really brought a smile to my face. This is TV star Luke Rafferty and Stella Lane’s story and oh what a story Lila Monroe weaved. After playing Dr. Casanova for 10 years, Luke is on a forced vacation thanks to his bad boy ways and an ex wife who is a nightmare. Stella is desperate to win the building contract for Luke’s new retreat as it will get her the publicity she needs to make her company a success. . They say that eavesdroppers never hear good, but in Stella’s case it isn’t true. When she overhears Luke’s agent suggesting he gets himself a “fake” girlfriend to ward off the tabloids and appease the studio bosses, she comes up with a win/win plan in her opinion. Stella wants her business to succeed and is determined not to become involved with the hunky man but Luke has other ideas and this is where the fun really begins. The chemistry between Luke and Stella 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 being in the spotlight drive them apart? In my opinion this series keeps getting better and better. One click now, you won’t be disappointed.

Hot Celeb and a Babe that knows how to renovate! Yes friends, I loved Mr. Casanova by Lila Monroe. I read Mr. Casanova because each chapter had me hooked. I could not get this story out of my head and I wanted to know what was next! You will not be disappointed. If you have not read the series, its okay. You can read the book as a stand alone, but I suggest to dive into the previous books. They are all delish! Mr. Casanova is a bit of sexy and bit of drama twirled into one! You will love Luke and Stella

I can't say enough about the writing style of Ms. Monroe. She has truly grown in her creativity and humor. Mr. Casanova will leave you laughing and crying all at the same time. Who wouldn't be rooting for the hometown girl and the celebrity? Stella's character is like every other woman out there and who wouldn't want to have a fake fling with a star? She's strong, smart, funny, and just wants to be accepted in a man's world...don't we all. Luke is looking for a way to rebound his career after his ex-wife goes on a trashing expedition in the tabloids. There isn't one thing about this book that I did not love. Grab your copy as soon as you can!

Billionaire Bachelors Series... Can I just say how much I love Lila Monroe's stories?!? 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! Enter Luke, disgraced actor, looking to reimage himself into the person he truly is. He is also looking to reimage the new home he bought. These two meet and sparks fly! This is a classic Lila Monroe story with so much humor, heat and heart you won't be able to put it down till the very end. I loved the secondary characters and I loved the chance revisit characters in her other stories.  Even though every story of Ms. Monroe's is a stand alone, it's just such fun to catch up with what everyone is up to in her world! If you are looking for a funny, lighthearted and smexy romance, get this! You won't be disappointed!!

Mr Casanova was the most enjoyable story which brings you Luke and Stella. Stella has her own construction company and after a couple of tries, manages to secure a deal where she renovated Luke's new house but also pretending they are in a fake relationship for his career as an actor. Omg I laughed, I thought the whole storyline was so captivating, it just made me feel good. Stella best friend Frankie was so supportive, it was wonderful and when Luke holds a baby....omgah, can you say swoon!!!?? Yes indeed. But sometimes things are misconstrued and I had a bad feeling and really felt sad for Stella. There is so much to love about this very easy to read book that I really cannot wait for more from this author. Who loves reading about fake relationships?? Especially when he's downright hot, so up my alley! You should one-click this book. It's lighthearted, fun, funny and beautiful too!

Mr Casanova by Lila Monroe is book five in her hilarious, sexy and awesome standalone Billionaire Bachelor series. This is the story of Hot TV star Luke Rafferty and Stella Lane, a Hamptons local who is trying to get her home renovation company off the ground despite the efforts of her ex-husband and ex-business partner. When these two meet it really isn't instant sparks and falling all over each other though - in fact, Luke doesn't even notice Stella or the chocolate ice cream he accidentally knocked over onto her shirt... Stella needs a renovation job STAT. Her potential clients see a woman and immediately think that she's lacking and choose her stinking useless ex who wouldn't know a thing about renovation if it wasn't for her and everything she taught him. When the opportunity to remodel the disaster of a home that Luke bought comes up along with a chance to be his fake girlfriend to help his reputation she honestly can't say no - not if she wants to stay in business no matter how many puppies he threw off a roof. Luke's ex is nuts. She is steadily feeding the tabloids with horror stories about him, including one saying he threw their dog off the roof of the observatory - they never even had a dog...EVER! He needs help and not just with his public image - the home he bought in the Hamptons is a raunchy mansion filled with naked statues, mermaid fountains with water squirting nipples, and even more terrible and unspeakable things and he needs to make it livable. When Stella first comes by to propose her bid for the renovation he turns her down but when his publicist insists that he hire a fake girlfriend for the job he is happy with the two birds one stone option with Stella. It doesn't hurt that she is smoking hot and down to earth. But it's all for show - right? Another fabulous Lil book - one of my fave authors. I loved this and can't wait for book six, Best Man and the next two books in her Chick Flick Club series (You've Got Male and Frisky Business). Enjoy!

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 due to his ex-wife’s fabricated stories for her own personal gain. The deliciously handsome heartthrob is licking his wounds at his new mansion in the Hamptons when he meets local general contractor Stella Lane. Stella is rebuilding her business after her louse of an ex-husband has stolen her clients, and nearly good-ol’-boyed her out of business. She is smart, has a good eye for design, and can wield a hammer or wrench as good as the next guy. Her loyal friends and construction crew are charming secondary characters. A particularly noteworthy secondary character is her dad, who is the proprietor of the local pub, The Shipwreck. Ms. Monroe has a knack for developing lead female characters who are independent, strong, and absolutely lovable. Stella is a character you can’t help but adore and root for. The instant attraction between Luke and Stella is obvious, and naturally, both find it difficult to follow the rules and keep everything professional. The angst leading to the story’s zenith is a bit contrived for us commoners, but not improbable for a once-bitten, twice-shy Hollywood type. The charming conclusion melted my heart. Lila Monroe’s Mr. Casanova has “good bones” as contractor Stella would say, and the story’s “construction” is every bit as amazing as one of Stella’s remodels.

After his two-timing, deceitful ex-wife had him thrown off the hit TV show,Heartbreak Hospital, Luke Rafferty, a.k.a Mr. Casanova leaves L.A and relocates to the Hamptons where he’s bought a rambling house that’s in serious need of a makeover. Stella wants the job and she’s willing to do just about anything to get it. Even pretend to be Luke’s new girlfriend! It’s the perfect plan and Stella knows she can make it work, she just has to convince Luke. Stella is a strong and independent woman, but she’s struggling with her business after her scheming ex-fiancé decided to take all her clients when they split up. Now he’s cutting her out of work too, and after he steals yet another job out from under her she’s about had enough. Being under the spotlight of the paparazzi isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and Stella si soon feeling the weight of their constant intrusions, but while things with Luke might have started as pretend, it didn’t take long for them to become real. These two share some scorching hot chemistry and before long, neither wants to give their fake romance up. Of course that’s when a wrench gets thrown in the works and their relationship stumbles. Will they be able to get back on track. Is there a red carpet in their future, or a long tv dinner for one? I really enjoyed this story and am eager for more. One-Click your copy today and settles down with your own Mr. Casanova.

This is the fifth installment of the Billionaire Bachelor series that is centered on Olivia Chambers’ agency that provides appropriate companions to the rich and famous. Need a fake fiancé to get the get an inheritance ? Need a girlfriend to convince the world you are stable? Olivia can help you out. One strict rule is no hanky-panky (though that rule is continually broken). This story centers around Luke Rafferty, aka Dr Casanova, former star of a hit TV medical show. He has gone through a messy divorce with his former costar, where the tabloid press has been printing untrue rumors about him. These stories are making him unemployable. Stella Lane is a contractor in the Hamptons. She desperately wants to renovate Luke’s fixer-upper of a mansion. With Olivia’s help, they eventually come to an agreement that helps them both out, Luke gets the fake girlfriend to rehab his image and Stella gets to rehab her dream house and free pr for her firm. Like all of Lila Monroe’s books, this has a lot of humor and great characters. This was a thoroughly enjoyable book. I received an ARC of this book from the author for my honest review

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 can’t help it! Every single time I fall in love with the characters, the unconventional dynamic to their relationship, and the overall spectacular writing style and emotional turmoil conveyed throughout the story. The author has an indescribable way of making readers feel embroiled in the characters, layering the storyline with passion and intrigue that explodes off the pages. Luke and Stella are quite possibly two of my favorite characters in this series. Their relationship develops easily and flows effortlessly with the story. They each need the other for completely opposite reasons. But it’s their connection and touching, emotional moments together that heightens their attraction and makes the story that much more exciting, sexy, and dreamy. Each book in the Billionaire Bachelor series gets better and better. I cannot wait for Fitz’s book. From the little sneak peek we get, I know it’ll be another must-read. Cause let’s face it…the bigger the perpetual bachelor, the harder the fall. 5 Stars!
