Wild Card (Lila Monroe) Book Reviews
Romance with twistRead entire book on my day off work & regret nothing - great way to spend my time.Score: 5/5
Amazing!!!Another amazing book by Lila Monroe! I love her writing!! The way she puts so much humor in it, some crazy antics (wedding from hell/bridezilla), an uber hot guy who you just can’t help but drool over (Ryan), and an amazingly smart woman (Olivia). I love reading how it unfolds, how it all makes sense in the end. I can’t wait to read the next one!!!.Score: 5/5
A fun, fiesty, and highly entertaining must read!A perfect summer read that’s sure to leaving you hot and sweaty! Each and every book Lila Monroe writes just gets better and better…I cannot get enough of her fun and sizzling romances! Like the previous books in the Billionaire Bachelors Series, Wild Card starts out as a business arrangement. But Olivia, the powerhouse woman who usually sets up the arrangements, is in a need of a suitor herself this time. And who better to fill that need than ex-NFL QB (and utterly gorgeous) Ryan Callahan–who just so happens to need someone to help him woo some investors. Win-win, right? But once these two polar-opposite characters spend more time together, their “professional” relationship quickly shifts from business to pleasure. *squeal* Wild Card packs so much within its pages! Fun, witty, passionate, hilarious, and romantic, Olivia and Ryan were two fantastically written characters that matched an amazingly penned love story. Their red-hot chemistry was evident from page one, but it was their intelligent and quite comical batter made this story so much more engaging and provocative. And Ryan sure gave Prince Charming a run for his money for his heroism in saving Olivia from the ridiculous situations she was put in. Seriously…that boy needs a cape, and ONLY a cape (ya’ know what I’m saying!). I loved this book. Everything about it. Wild Card, in my opinion, is the best book in the series, so far! *sigh* Undoubtedly swoony, sexy, and heartachingly sweet, this book will leave you wanting more….and more! An absolutely fun, fiesty, and highly entertaining must read! 5 Stars!.Score: 5/5

Has the Matchmaker Met Her Match?So far, Lila Monroe’s Billionaire Bachelors series has been all about matching up rich, handsome men with classy, attractive women in a business arrangement of sorts, and while the matched pair goes into their agreement understanding the stakes, what was meant to be a professional interaction quickly morphs into something more…something rather unbusinesslike and very personal, and through the first two billionaires’ stories, readers have been right along with the couple, witnessing their sexual chemistry, their mutual attraction, and their witty exchanges, waiting for them and their partners to realize that what they feel for one another is so much more than friendly appreciation. In Wild Card, Monroe places the matchmaker herself, Olivia Chambers, into the ‘dating’ world that she’s created, finding herself in need of a plus one for another one of her father’s weddings, but this time, there are even higher stakes due to the nature of Olivia’s relationship with her soon-to-be step mother, so Olivia’s need for a date trumps her unease over teaming up with one of her fussiest clients, ex-NFL star, Ryan Callahan, and while these two may not see or even understand how quickly things heat up between them, readers see through their polar opposite personalities and the series of misfortunate but nonetheless comedic situations they finds themselves in for what they truly are - a perfect match. Karma really must have it in for Olivia for her father to choose her college nemesis as his new bride, and that idea is confirmed as Olivia deals with bridezilla and finds herself in a number of chaotic situations, all resulting from people and an environment that seem hellbent on making Olivia suffer. But there is one person who has Olivia’s back and while it’s difficult for her to wrap her brain around her attraction to Ryan and the way he makes her feel, she’s quite happy with him by her side, which means that their business deal may need to be amended as long as Ryan wants to make things a lot more personal than professional and a lot more permanent than temporary. Olivia and Ryan’s story is filled with amusing banter, embarrassing moments, and steamy situations. Try as they might, these two can’t deny the pull they feel towards one another despite the ‘roles’ they thought they were playing, and while it complicates a number of areas in their life, they both need to decide if the business side of themselves is more important than the personal side. 4 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews).Score: 4/5
Great new Rom-comThis is the third installment of the Billionaire Bachelor series that is centered on Olivia Chambers’ agency that provides appropriate companions to the rich and famous. Need a fake fiancé to get the family off your back? Need a girlfriend to convince the boss you are stable? Olivia can help you out. One strict rule is no hanky-panky. Olivia has been trying to find someone for her fussy client, Ryan Callahan, former NFL Quarterback, with no success. Olivia needs a date to her father’s wedding to a Bridezilla, who was her college roommate. Olivia proposes a quid pro quo, she will accompany Ryan to his business meetings,and he will be her date for the wedding festivities. Like all of Lila Monroe’s books, this has a lot of humor and great characters. Thoroughly enjoyable book. I received an ARC of this book from the author for my honest review..Score: 5/5

Review: Billionaire Bachelors 2: Wild CardWild Card by Lila Monroe is the third book in her quirky Billionaire Bachelors series. Starring the matchmaker herself, Olivia, and one of her more difficult clients, this book focuses on how Ryan finally gets his perfect match and Olivia learns what it is to fall in love on the job. Olivia has the best job - exclusive matchmaker - but when she has a client she is completely unable to match up with a girl, she has take on the challenge of Ryan herself. It's perfect timing though as she also needs a date for her fathers wedding. Two birds one really hot retired football player. Ryan has been waiting for Olivia's matchmaking service to find him the right girl for what feels like forever. Her type of matchmaking is one that is for appearances only. Need a date for fundraisers, check. Need a date for a family wedding to avoid their matchmaking, check. But he needs a specific, savvy type of women to give him some steadfast credibility for upcoming business meetings. What eh really wants is Olivia and no one else will do. Good thing she is now searching for a date for her fathers wedding. Well-written, well-paced and another fabulous, quirky, funny, steamy and romantic read from one of my favorite authors - enjoy!.Score: 5/5
A crazy and sexy adventure!Wild Card was not what I expected at all. At times, painfully hilarious. More often, sweet. Most definitely hot. Ryan Callahan was a pleasant surprise, as each layer was stripped away, showing more of the man behind the legendary player. Even more so, it was so much fun to see a different side of Olivia Chambers, who has always been so reserved and mysterious in previous books. The two together undeniably complemented each other, creating a strong and sassy duo and even better story. Wild Card was a crazy and enjoyable adventure, from start to finish!.Score: 4/5

This book was so much fun to read!This is my first ever story by Lila and I am absolutely loving it! I can't understand why I haven’t read her before but I definitely want to read more of her books! They are incredibly entertaining and I want the business Olivia has, sounds like a great job with amazing prospects lol! This book was so much fun to read! Light hearted and great characters that chat like they are old friends! Olivia’s business is to find high profile people dates for the event they require them for, all legit and a business decision with contracts...ie fake relationship's. When she has trouble finding someone suitable on her team for Ryan Callahan she decides to jump in and go do it herself! Needless to say this trip is highly eventful and funny as well as quirky characters added into the mix! What I loved was their friendship, the way they just gelled! Ryan and Olivia seem to be a great couple but is it all just business or have hearts become involved??!! I can highly recommend this story! It really gave me the good feels inside! I need to read the previous books now!.Score: 5/5
Loved itNo one is more shocked that Olivia Chambers when she agrees to “date” Ryan Callahan an ex-NFL star who is looking to get finance for his new business venture and attend his meeting as his girlfriend. Olivia is the owner of the successful business who matches people up, not one of the staff that goes on assignment. However when she is cornered into attending her father’s latest wedding to an old college nemesis, she has no hesitation is helping out her latest client as long as he helps her out and plays her boyfriend for the wedding and sundry events. After all what could go wrong, a week in the Florida Keyes, with Ryan and Olivia helping each other out? Nothing or so Ryan and Olivia think? What will happen when feelings become involved, jealously rears it;’s ugly head and attraction becomes impossible to resist? Neither Ryan or Olivia have any intention of becoming involved for real. It’s all for show. However real life intervenes and that is when the fun really begins. Wild Card is a great read full of love, sadness, hope and humour. The banter between Olivia and Ryan had me in stitches at times. Ryan is most assuredly a swoon worthy, hot alpha male determined to get what he wants. I loved this book from start to finish; it was a fabulous read, full of great moments that really brought a smile to my face and one that I really didn’t want to put down..Score: 5/5
Perfect Mix of love and humourWild Card may be book 3 in the Billionaire Bachelors Series but I do believe each book can be read as a stand-alone although I’m sure once you have read one of this very talented authors work you will want to take a look at her other books. Olivia Chambers doesn’t know what she has done to deserve being made to be the maid of honour to her fathers latest bride ( this one happens to be her arch enemy from college) the only way she will get through this weekend to find herself a date to take and as she is a professional matchmaker for billionaires you wouldn’t think it would be to hard to find the perfect fake boyfriend......... Ryan is looking for someone who looks the part at all his business meetings he has set up, he needs someone who can fake love will this match be perfect or will feelings come into play once this couple spend some time alone in the Florida Keys. This is a fun easy to read book, it has the perfect mix of love, laughter, passion and witty banter, the characters have depth and are easy to like. This book has some hilarious laugh out loud moments as well as some seriously hot sizzling chemistry going on, for me this was a perfect rom-com and I can’t wait for the instalment in the Billionaire Bachelors..Score: 5/5
