A hot & hilarious STANDALONE romantic comedy for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lauren Blakely, and Julia Kent!

Hot bachelor Max Carlisle is heir to a media empire, tabloid catnip, and... wants to hire me to be his fake fiancee. I know what it takes to keep a billionaire in line, but signing up for seven days in close quarters with this Very Irresistible Playboy? It's just asking for trouble. The kind of thrilling, reckless trouble I could use a little more of since my career is currently ass-backwards in a mud bath with six shih-tzus (don't ask).
So do I:
a) Take the job, and bicker wildly every step of the way?
b) Embark on a mad-cap treasure hunt to claim his billion-dollar inheritance?
c) Try my hardest not to fall head-over-heels in love with him and wind up having the best sex of my life?
d) All of the above?

Something tells me I'm about to be way out of my league... and under the most handsome, infuriating man I've ever met. But with a fortune on the line, can we beat out his crazy relatives to win the prize? And will our fake relationship be game over at the finish line?

5 Star Review of VIP (Billionaire Bachelors Book 1) by Lila Monroe This is book one in Lila Monroe’s new series Billionaire Bachelors and if this book is any indication I think she has another winning series on her hands. This is the story of smoking hot Max Carlisle who is the heir to a media empire and Hallie Gage who is an up and coming photographer who through no fault of her own has landed in some troubled waters. When an intriguing offer is put to Hallie, to act as his fake girlfriend for 7 days will she take a risk and accept? After all what trouble could she get into? VIP (Very Irresistible Playboy) is full of laugh out loud moments which had me almost in tears not to mention is as hot as hades. I thoroughly enjoy the romantic comedy genre and Lila Monroe is an excellent example of an author who knows what she is doing. I adore her style of writing and found her characters to be captivating. I love Hallie her confidence and sass was easily a match for the self confident and highly appealing Max.Their chemistry was electrifying.and the secondary characters were almost as entertaining. This was a rollicking read full of great moments that really brought a smile to my face and one that I really didn’t want to put down. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. One click now you will not be disappointed.

I had fun reading Lila Monroe's latest, Very Irresistable Playboy. There's humor everywhere in the story which just makes me turn the page to keep reading. And I love to keep reading! Probably the best thing in the book is that neither our hero nor heroine take themselves too seriously. Sure, they want to succeed at what they do, but they recognize their flaws and run with them. In a world full of books about billonaires like Christian Grey, who's about as funny as a fatal car accident, I welcome the funny billonaire who doesn't take himself so seriously. Real people screw up. The romance is hot but not overpowering. We meet the characters, not their bedtime fun here. While I had a few doubts about Olivia's Agency and how it plays a role in the story, everything winds up for the best and better than I hoped so I'll take it. Funny makes it great! Rating: 4 stars

Fantastically Fun Read VIP, Lila Monroe’s first book in her Billionaire Bachelors series is a fun, quick read. Each book will be a standalone novella with an overlapping theme. I really enjoy Ms. Monroe’s lighthearted stories. Improbable but entertaining, VIP is an easy cheery escape from reality. When Hallie’s attempt to make it on her own doesn’t go so well, a chic woman, Olivia, offers her a hand up. And her offer is really on the up and up but there are a lot of loop holes and hurdles one can get tripped up in. One of them is the charming and charismatic Max Carlisle, a relatively irresponsible playboy. He is just an assignment—one week tops, but you know what they say about the best laid plans and good intentions… I really liked both main characters Hallie and Max. They are grounded, good looking, and they have fabulous attitudes. Their chemistry is obvious and their banter is fun and flirty. Hallie may not be from the top echelon of society, but she is at ease with herself and others. That and her moral compass take her far. Her good looks take her right into the forbidden arms of her assignment, and that fake relationship puts a big red target on her back for his money-hungry cousins to aim their daggers at. I adored that Hallie’s upbeat attitude really pushed Max to admit how much his family’s history and legacy mean to him. He just needs to have his mettle tested to prove his commitment and leadership to both himself to his family. Franklin, the aging patriarch of the Carlisle dynasty, throws a big twist into this story with his games and ultimate motivations. Franklin is much more sly and cunning than his family gives him credit for. This cantankerous octogenarian has a keen sense of people. I loved his role in the story and how Hallie’s involvement dovetailed nicely into his plans.

The start of this new series is off with a bang. I can tell you I'm already hooked on this series. The humor is my favorite thing about this book. I was laughing and enjoying myself the whole time I read this book. It's a fun, light-hearted read. The first meeting between Max and Hallie told me how fun this book was going to be. The adventure that both Max and Hallie went on was very eye opening about what path they wanted their futures to go on. I also liked the set up for the next book in the series. I'm going to be eagerly awaiting for it. It's has me very intrigued.

4.5 Stars! You will love this irresistibly fun, sexy romance! Hallie is a photographer who is working her way up the ranks. She is working a wedding and while sneaking a chocolate cupcake, she meets a random guest who ends up kissing her to fend off a cougar. They go their separate ways and she figures that's that. But, it most definitely isn't! Hallie is a great character. She is smart, funny, kind and loyal. She rolls with all the punches thrown at her in the story. Max is not what he seems. Yes, he's sexy and cocky, but there is so much more to him. Together, these two are perfect! The story was pretty great. A relationship of convenience is always a fun trope to read. Additionally, there is a really fun twist to the book that adds comedy and romance! I really think this is just a perfect weekend read!

From the sexy cover to the intriguing synopsis, Monroe delivers a truly entraining read filled with lots of romance and steamy scenes to keep you reading until the very end. In Very Irresistible Playboy we get to meet Hallie, an aspiring photographer whose dream is to branch out on her own and make a name for herself in the business. While she saves money to do that, Hallie takes side work in photography hoping to slowly get her name out there. But when things go wrong at a wedding she was supposed to be taking photos of, she bumps into a stranger who needs her help and after one kiss and a good bye Hallie does’t know if she’ll ever see the guy again. It is after getting a call to interview at Carlisle Publishing that she finally has hope again that they’ll be able to see her work, but when things don’t turn out then way she wanted them to she ends up sitting at a cafe with a stranger who happens to offer her help. She knows that Olivia is her ticket to getting to work again, but when she explains Hallie what the job will entail, she’ll have to make a decision that will ultimately change her future forever. Max Carlisle is used to getting everything he wants, but when he is needed back at his grandfather’s state to celebrate his birthday he knows that his mother is going to bug him if she doesn’t see him in a relationship. It is that he enlists the help of Olivia of The Agency to help him find the perfect fake girlfriend for the job, but when he sees Hallie again he knows that he is in deep trouble and as they get to know each other the more he wants to keep her. But when his grandfather surprises the family with a new will, two embark on an adventure that will challenge their relationship and prove if they can have a future at all. I absolutely loved the storyline and the characters themselves. Monroe has definitely a great writing style that will keep you reading until the very end. One of the things that I loved about this story was the humor! The characters know how to bicker back and forth and it’s hilarious. Hallie’s personality is sassy and she has a response for everything. She is also a very hard worker who definitely wants to learn more and make a name for herself. On the the other hand, Max is chairman and sweet. He is very protective over Hallie which is totally swoon worthy, we all need a Max in our lives. I also loved the “adventure” that they go to after they find out about the will, it was great seeing them work as a team. There wasn’t a big conflict in the story, but it was comedic and sweet. The ending will leave your heart melting and I cannot recommend it enough. Will definitely be reading the next books in the series and other books by the author in the future. ;) ***ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.***

OH MY GOODNESS I D-E-V-O-U-R-E-D Very Irresistible Playboy! Fun, sassy, sweet, tempting and with a plot I adored, I found myself reading this in just a little over a day. And when I did put it down, all I kept thinking about was diving back in. I smiled an aweful lot through this book and I enjoyed the great chemistry and sizzling sex between Max and Hallie. And the adventure they partake on throughout the book kept me giggling and rooting for them to come out on top. I freaking am charmed by this new series from Lila Monroe! On top of the pure fun and great romance, we get enough heart that had me sniffling and my heart feeling like someone was squeezing my chest. I am always eager for a story from Lila Monroe, but Very Irresistible Playboy is smile-worthy, sweet, and HIGHLY FANTASTIC! I can not WAIT for the next one..seriously I want it like YESTERDAY! Very Irresistible Playboy gets a FLIRTY AND SEXILICIOUS FIVE SHOOTING STARS! If you love romcoms with tons of heat, good banter and a gorgeous bachelor, than you will LOOOOOOOVE this book!

I have been lucky in my discover of new authors. Lila Monroe is an wonderful author who can mix romance, comedy as few have done it. Her writing is witty and characters compelling. This book is the start of a new series and is about Max Carlisle, a heir to a media empire and in desperate need of a date, and Hallie Gage a not so lucky photographer needing money for her business. He is sexy and infuriating and she is kind of crazy and stubborn, they are a crazy sexy couple in a treasure hunt. It is so fun and you will love this couple made by the circumstances. There is a book 2 for another couple in the series in a while and I can't wait to read it.

Very Irresistible Playboy is not meant to be taken seriously, but definitely packs a punch. The seduction begins almost immediately between the charming playboy and his cynical, yet unforgettable introduction to the equally love phobic Hallie. Through jaded eyes and smart, yet saucy dialogue, Lila Monroe takes readers on an ironic dance of love, laughter and temptation. From first meeting to final goodbye Max and Hallie have a stranglehold on hearts and hormones of any reader willing to take a chance on romance.

Ms. Monroe, what are you doing to me! You have quickly become one of my favorite Rom-Com authors and I will ONE. CLICK. EVERY. TIME. Very Irresistible Playboy has the perfect balance between romance, comedy, and a twist of tension and what I love the most about the tension part, is Ms. Monroe doesn't let it drag on for several chapters. No, she is quick to resolve it with much make-up love! My other favorite part of Ms. Monroe's books is the fact she takes secondary characters and makes them extraordinary characters. I was so thrilled to read Hallie's story because I loved her working for Jack (Perfect Match) and for being Oliver's (Christmas with the Billionaire) sister. She is witty, independent, and tough cookie. Max comes from a family that is slightly dysfunctional it is a wonder he didn't turn out like the rest of them. Together, these two are a power couple, and don't mess with them on anything like a scavenger I honestly can't wait for the next one in this series so please don't leave me hanging too long. Thanks, Ms. Monroe, for giving us all a couple of hours to escape reality and laugh.

What a fun way to start a new series. I totally loved it. Hallie is smart, funny and sassy, trying to do what she loves. Max is hot, charming and fun, trying to do who/what he loves. A chance encounter at a wedding, a turn of events, and a business deal lead to a fun trip, an exciting scavenger hunt, and some hot and steamy nights. This was a blast to read. I can’t wait for the next one!

This book is a definite must-read that makes you wish for your own treasure hunt of hotness! 5 stars!

Fake relationship√ Inheritance on the line√ Insane attraction and chemistry between hero/heroine√ I’ve learned after reading my fair share of romantic comedies that when the above three circumstances mix together, it’s anybody’s guess how everything is going to play out, but one thing is for sure, by the time the story is over, readers will be thoroughly spent giggling, swooning, and shaking their heads at the antics of both the hero and the heroine and what develops out of their ‘all for show’ romance. Max Carlisle is the ultimate billionaire bachelor, but it’s a title he doesn’t really covet; his passions and his family’s legacy are what mean the most to him, and while his swagger and cockiness is on point, what I loved most about Max was that once Hallie worked herself past his defenses and allowed her to see the ‘real’ man beneath the billionaire, that’s the man who I knew was a perfect match for the witty and beautiful photographer. The plot is a bit chaotic, but that’s what happens when the end prize is life changing and the hunt they go on proves more dubious than it appears, but while Max and Hallie’s journey, at first, is a means to an end, it’s clear that with each new obstacle they face, their partnership becomes more about their feelings for each other than what treasures they’ll find as they continue their quest because it’s clear that the ultimate riches don’t come in material form but more like a beating heart that’s ready for love. Very Irresistible Playboy by Lila Monroe is a highly entertaining romantic comedy told in dual point of view, which works well because the readers get to see where Max and Hallie’s thoughts and feelings are at the beginning of their ruse and how they transform into something neither of them ever expected upon their initial encounter. 4 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)
