Can a Romance Between the Ice Queen and a Former NFL Player Really Be the Next Great Love Story?: Wild Card by Lila Monroe Review and Blog Tour!

 

 

‘The Wedding Date’ gets a sexy twist in the new hilarious rom-com from Lila Monroe!
Is there anything worse than playing maid-of-honor to your bitchy college nemesis? Try it when she’s marrying your DAD! Olivia Chambers doesn’t know what she’s done to deserve this karmic retribution, but she needs a date to the wedding from hell – and fast. She’s used to matchmaking billionaires, but now she needs a Prince Charming of her own. Someone handsome and famous enough to make bridezilla and her minions drool with envy…

Someone like hottie ex-NFL star Ryan Callahan.

Ryan is looking for love. Well, the fake kind. He needs the perfect woman on his arm to woo investors for his superstar new business venture, but nobody is scoring that touchdown… until elegant, sophisticated Olivia comes to him with a proposition. She’ll play his perfect date – if he’ll play hers.

The deal is simple! Or is it? Take one week in the Florida Keys, a dose of sizzling sexual tension, a madcap wedding, and some seriously humid frizzy hair, and Ryan and Olivia have the recipe for disaster… or maybe the time of their lives.

But can Olivia let down her guard long enough to let Ryan sweep her off her feet? And will Ryan take his eyes off the (business) prize long enough to see what’s right in front of him?

Review

Lila Monroe has quickly become an auto buy author for me, and I was so excited to see that she had a new book coming out in the Billionaire Bachelors Series.  This series has been so much fun, and I’ve loved every book in the series so far.  Olivia has been hiding in the background for the last two books, and I was super curious to find out more about the woman behind the agency.  When I found out that Wild Card was going to be about her, I was thrilled!  And in my opinion, this book is really the best in the series so far!

Olivia is a workaholic, and spends almost every waking hour working on making The Agency the absolute best that it can be.  She’s closed off, and frankly, she comes across as the Ice Queen of NYC.  When Ryan Callahan walks into her office looking for the perfect date to help him gain the upper hand with a group of investors, it looks like she’s finally met her match when it comes to finding the perfect pairing.  Everyone she sets him up with fails his test, and she grows more and more frustrated.  However, when the perfect scenario passes her way, she can’t help but suggest herself as his date for the event.

I loved seeing Olivia and Ryan together, and learning more and more about Olivia’s background.  Turns out, not only is she far from an ice queen, but she’s also adorable and funny as can be.  Of the three books, she is probably my favorite heroine and I loved spending time with her.  She’s a strong woman, with a backbone of steel, who has really made a name for herself.  But she’s also sweet, caring, and really cares for those around her.  I can see now why she’s so incredibily good at what she does, but I can’t wait to see how she does now that she’s found true love for herself!

Ryan Callahan is an absolutely amazing heroine.  He’s a retired football player, with big dreams of opening a chain of healthy fast food kiosks an restaurants across the country.  He’s not looking for love, but with Olivia, it definitely comes looking for him.  He comes across as a real tough guy, but I enjoyed seeing his softer side with her.  There were just so many little moments with these two that made my heart melt a little.  Their romance was sweet and romantic, and definitely left a smile on my face.

If you haven’t read anything by Lila Monroe, than what are you waiting for?  She is definitely an author that you need to check out, especially if you love romantic comedy.  Anyone that loves authors like R.S. Grey and Meghan Quinn should find favor with Lila Monroe!  I know I did, and since my first read of hers, I’ve never looked back!

5 Stars!!!
