Book Review: Very Irresistible Playboy (VIP) by Lila Monroe



Welcome to Billionaire Bachelors Inc, where the sexiest men in the city are about to meet their match.. 

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? 

Find out in the new sexy, hilarious romantic comedy from Lila Monroe!

My Thoughts

What a fun book! I do enjoy books featuring a fake relationship but what elevated this one for me is the amount of fun Hallie had in the role.

Money and career wise, Hallie is not where she thought she would be. Playing it safe for several years, means Hallie is back on the bottom rung of her chosen career.

A chance meeting lands Hallie with an offer to play girlfriend to Max Carlisle, billionaire, adventurer and a man not ready to settle down to the demands of his family.

Look, Max is no slouch in any department and in this book he undergoes his own metamorphosis. Yet it’s Hallie’s attitude to take things as they come and embrace them that makes this book. She is fun and she brings fun into Max’s life. She is not angling for anything more than they initially agreed and this in turn allows Max to relax and lower his own barriers to Hallie.

A perfect beach read.

“I think we should establish some ground rules,” I announce, as we drive along the curving ocean road. Palm trees are swaying, the ocean is glittering aquamarine blue, and it’s all so gorgeous and romantic, I need to cling to some semblance of professionalism.
Max groans. “Do we have to?”
“Yes,” I say firmly. “We’re pretending to be in a relationship, so things could get . . .”
Hot . . . Tempting . . .
“Complicated,” I finally decide.
“OK.” Max sounds amused. “What did you have in mind?”
 “No touching below the waist,” I say. “No PDA except holding hands and quick kisses. No tongue. And no talking about our imaginary sex life.”
I’m a little too hot and bothered just imagining we have an imaginary sex life.

 “Fine.” Max grins. “I promise not to ravish you in front of my entire family.”
