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 REVIEW -
4.5 stars of treasure-hunting goodness.
Whilst I'm not overfond of the billionaire trope, I didn't find it a problem in this book. I think that's due to the light-hearted rom-com element. Whilst the books are not necessarily packed with laugh-out-loud moments, they are very witty, well written and highly entertaining. Best of all the humour is very organic, having a very natural and unforced feel to it. I've read quite a few books by this author now and have never been disappointed. Whilst she has a distinctive style, every plot is unique and each set of characters is fresh.
Hallie has appeared in both Perfect Match and Christmas with the Billionaire, though you really don't need to have read either book to enjoy this one. She is a really strong and well organised character, but has the same worries and insecurities as the rest of us. Hallie is immensely likeable and is a key feature of what makes this book so good.
We don't get as many chapters from Max's POV, just enough to really get a feel of him. Despite appearing to be a jet setting playboy, he's actually quite a sweet and slightly insecure man. I loved how he developed and grew during the story.
The pair are amazing together, their chemistry is intense and was really believable. Even as the lines blurred for them in their pretend relationship, they blurred for me too. This couple were made for each other and certainly steamed up my kindle!
If you're looking for a fun, captivating, well written and totally enjoyable read then I highly recommend this book as one to try.

“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.”
