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!
I was so excited to see that Lila Monroe had a new series coming out, and even more so when I saw that it was about Hallie, Jack Callahan’s personal assistant from Perfect Match. Perfect Match was one of my favorite romance reads of 2017 and my first Lila Monroe book. I was curious to see if I’d love this new series as much. And lo and behold, I loved it even more!
Hallie is trying to start her own photography business, but continues to hit brick wall after brick wall. While assisting a wedding photographer, she meets Max at the cupcake table, and even after he’s gone she can’t stop thinking about the attractive man who caught her attention. After a particularly bad job interview, Hallie meets Olivia who runs a company known as The Agency, and invites Hallie to come in for an interview. The Agency is a type of “escort” service for rich people who need fake girlfriends and dates for an evening or a week. Olivia sets Hallie up with none other than Max Carlisle, the mysterious man from the wedding. Much hilarity and games ensue, and I fell absolutely head over heels for these two characters!
One thing I really enjoy about Lila’s novels are her characters. She always writes strong, confident woman who aren’t afraid to fight for what they want. And her male leads are always swoon worthy! Max was no exception. I liked his character from the moment he was introduced, and loved every interaction he had with Hallie. He was a sweet character without feeling like he didn’t have a backbone. Once he got his head on straight, he knew to stand up for what he believed in, and that’s how he got the girl!
Very Irresistible Playboy was all in all, an adorable, fast read that I enjoyed immensely. Lila’s writing had great flow, and I was never bored with the story. Plus, she gave us just a taste of what the next book is going to be about and I am so there for it!

Max sets me down gently, and brushes a strand of wet hair from my face. His eyes are stormy blue in the darkness, and his fingertips hot against my face.
My breath catches. My eyes drift to his mouth, and then just like that, he’s pulling me close again, into a hot, reckless kiss.
God, I’ve been dying to taste him again. His mouth is hard and possessive, claiming mine, and a shudder of lust rolls through me at the feel of him. His hands are all over me, molding me against him as the fire between us blazes hotter, and I forget everything. Like my rules, and our arrangement, and the fact I’ve sworn off men like him . . . None of it matters, not with Max’s tongue doing wicked things to mine, and his body so hard against me.
