The Billionaire Bachelors are BACK! Fall for a new trope-tactic, fake dating rom-com series from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!

Playboy bachelor Charlie Fox is handsome, charming — and looking for a date to the TWELVE weddings he’s attending this month. He’s topping the city’s ‘Most Eligible’ lists, but he needs a woman who won’t swoon at his feet — or go diving to catch that bouquet. A fake girlfriend is the perfect solution, he’s just not expecting a very familiar face to show up as his plus-one…

Me.

The last time I saw Charlie, he was playing Mr Popular at our high-school… while I was stuck being Miss Invisible. Now — thanks to a rogue Chihuahua, my frat-bro boss, and a gallon of gluten-free frosting — he’s making me an offer I really should refuse. Play his fake girlfriend for a summer of wild weddings?

It’ll be worth it, as long as we can keep our hands to ourselves.
And our mouths.
And… other parts, too.

As the wedding marathon gets underway, the sparks between us are anything but fake – and breaking the rules has never been so fun. Can ‘just for now’ turn into ‘forever’? Find out in the sizzling, hilarious new romance from “the reigning queen of romantic comedy” Lila Monroe!

1 Very Irresistible Playboy

2 Hot Stuff

8 Renegade Roomie (2022)

9 Baller Boss (2022)

Review:

Loved it from start to finish. Olivia really needs to change the premise of her fake dating agency as most couples end up together, even her! She has a gift it seems for matching the perfect pair and Charlie and Grace are no exception.

Needing a fake date for a plus one for twelve weddings over the summer. Olivia has just the person in mind to help Charlie out. Liked the way they all meet / meet again in Grace and Charlie’s case. Grace’s former bosses son Bret was a spoilt man child who needed to be put in his place. Cake in the lap works wonders. Top marks for that one Grace. Slight problem with then having no job. That’s where Olivia steps in.

Seems Grace and Charlie are the perfect fake couple for these weddings. No feelings there to start with but it doesn’t take long for that to change. Few weddings down and the chemistry is starting to heat up. All comes to boiling point at the Ren Faire. Grace being hosed down to get spilt beer off her making her dress stick in all the right places will do the trick. Him stripping wet shirt off doesn’t hurt either. One look and you just see both thinking screw this and go for it.

Romance in the air but Charlie is adamant that he doesn’t want long term – one failed marriage put him off for life. Seems he can’t see how he acts with Grace and that the longer they spend together the closer they come. Running scared from his own feelings and airing his stupid thoughts allowed for her to hear not the best move. Especially when it costs him something great. Can he get out of his own head and own way to get what he really wants before it’s too late?

Great characters that draw you in. Loved Grace’s Aunts and Charlie’s friends. Those guys are in for a shock when love comes calling. Dash you are up next if Olivia has anything to do with it. She is always there at just the right moment.

5 out of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest review.

Release Blitz: ‘Doctor Untouchable’ by J. Saman

Doctor Untouchable by J. Saman is now live!

Running out on my wedding and throwing myself onto his car to get away from my cheating ex is not how I thought I’d see Kaplan Fritz again.  

Which is probably why I didn’t recognize him until I ran into his mother shortly after. A hell of a morning and a bottle of champagne later and I’m accepting a job I likely shouldn’t–working for his family’s foundation as their new executive assistant. 

Now I’m in a new city, living a new life, determined that this will be the start of a new me, while foolishly assuming I’ll never have to see Kaplan again. Wrong.  

Sitting high up on his throne, Doctor Untouchable with his boyishly handsome face, piercing green eyes, and jawline that could sharpen a knife can make a girl blush and her panties melt just by walking past her. Everyone wants a piece of Boston’s last eligible billionaire bachelor.  
I simply want to forget he ever existed to me.  

Especially when it turns out he’s nothing like the man I remember.  

Cold, aggravatingly closed off, and infuriatingly cocky, his sexy smirk grates on my every nerve. The pediatric cardiothoracic surgeon has no time or patience for me, his lowly assistant trying to help him run his family’s foundation that he’s now the CEO of.   

Every encounter we have grows more and more heated. Every fiery exchange a twisted form of foreplay. Which is why I’m determined he never discover the truth about me.  

But what happens when my cover is blown and he realizes that the curvy girl he loves to fight with is the same one from his past?

Release Blitz: ’50 Ways to Win Back Your Lover’ by Kelly Siskind

50 Ways to Win Back Your Lover by Kelly Siskind is now live!

From Kelly Siskind comes a slow-burn romantic comedy about one man’s creative attempt to win back his high school sweetheart after a change in fortune gives them a second chance at love.

Growing up, I had it all—my art, close friends, a gorgeous girlfriend who owned my heart—but then my life exploded.

Turns out my father was laundering money, and my whole family got shoved into witness protection. No notice. No chance to explain. I was ripped away from beautiful, blue-eyed Delilah Moon, shattering both our worlds.

A decade later, fate has given us a second chance.

The cartel my father worked for has been wiped out. I’ve returned to my hometown, determined to win back the love of my life. But Delilah is engaged.

Or . . . is she?

I’m almost positive she’s lying about her fiancé to protect her heart. Which means I need to up my game.

I’ve made a list of fifty ways to prove we’re meant to be. Except Delilah’s barely looking at me, never mind swooning. I have a feeling my disappearance scarred her more than she’s admitting, and no one in town will tell me what happened . . .

EXCERPT

He turns, and my breath catches. The moon caresses his rugged, charming face. He’s been with me every step of his new journey. I trust him completely.“I need your help with something.”His gaze meets mine and something in my belly goes liquid.“Of course.”“I—I’m nervous about something. Really nervous. And you’re one of my best friends. And luckily, a boy.” A nervous giggle tries to escape, but I clamp it down.His eyebrows draw together the smallest amount, but he waits me out.“I — I’ve never kissed anyone. I would like to try it. Would you do it? It wouldn’t be like cheating on Gregor, I don’t think. You’re like a — a brother to me. Okay, that’s weird. I would never kiss Leo. But you’re a trusted friend. Someone who would tell me if I did it wrong. If I was bad. I mean, you’d know. You’ve kissed a thousand girls. You’re an expert.”A muscle in his jaw ticks. “You should save your first kiss for Gregor.”“I don’t think you would be my real first kiss. Any more than my mother kissing me goodnight or the French ambassador pecking my cheeks.”His Adam’s apple bobs and his gaze cuts away. He’s not going to do it. I’ve asked too much.“I’m sorry. Nevermind. That was crazy. It’ll be fine.” I turn away from him to look out on the small park at the center of the square where the townspeople sing in the mornings.“Kissing me wouldn’t be like your brother, or your mother, or the French ambassador,” he says.“Not at all.”

Release Blitz: ‘The Dealmaker’ by Jessica Peterson

An all-new, outrageously sexy enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy set in the high-stakes world of Wall Street.

The Dealmaker by Jessica Peterson is now live!

Blurb:

Hating and dating: I didn’t realize they’re two sides of the same coin until I met him. Theo Morgan.

One of Wall Street’s highest-paid traders, he may be hot as sin in his five-thousand-dollar custom-made suit. But Theo is the bane of my existence. He’s arrogant, rude, and as brash as they come.

As our bank’s newest star hire, he’s also after the same promotion I am. But I didn’t make it this far in a man’s world just to be passed over for an entitled egomaniac. Two can play at this game.

In a surprise to exactly no one, Theo and I butt heads from the beginning–and end up losing my biggest client with a trade gone bad. Our boss’s punishment: fly us to California together to make nice with the client—or else.

When a snowstorm back home leaves us stranded on the West Coast, we learn our hotel is fully booked, save for one room.

And of course that room would have only one king-sized bed. After a little too much wine, our deal to stick to opposite sides of that bed goes out the window. But on the flight home, my resolve to keep things professional remains intact, until Theo offers me a new deal.

The gloves (and clothes) can come off. But the lipstick stays on…
