Description

Get ready to fall in love with another hot and hilarious romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe! 

Hot TV star Luke Rafferty is Hollywood’s newest bad boy… at least, according to the tabloids. He’s been steaming up the screens as Dr. Casanova for ten years, but thanks to his ex-wife, some tricky contract negotiations, and that incident with the stethoscope (don’t ask), he’s suddenly on an extended vacation - with his heartthrob career on the line.

Enter Stella Hartwick. 

A Hamptons local, she’s trying to get her home renovation company off the ground; winning the job for Luke’s new beachfront retreat would be her big break. And when she just happens to overhear his agent suggesting a fake relationship to give his reputation a swoon-worthy makeover, Stella sees the perfect solution to both their problems. 

What’s a little fake smooching between friend(ly professionals)?

Stella is determined to keep her eyes on the prize renovation and her hands OFF the hunky actor wandering shirtless through her construction site. But Luke has other ideas. Midnight skinny-dipping ideas. 

If only he wasn’t so heart-stompingly, panty-twistingly handsome… 

Soon, sparks are flying, and they’re both forgetting their kisses are just for show. But can this fake relationship weather a very real tabloid storm? Or will past betrayals and the Hollywood spotlight drive them apart before their romance has even begun? 

Find out in the new hot and hilarious romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!

    Mr Casanova by Lila Monroe is book five in her hilarious, sexy and awesome standalone Billionaire Bachelor series. This is the story of Hot TV star Luke Rafferty and Stella Lane, a Hamptons local who is trying to get her home renovation company off the ground despite the efforts of her ex-husband and ex-business partner. When these two meet it really isn't instant sparks and falling all over each other though - in fact, Luke doesn't even notice Stella or the chocolate ice cream he accidentally knocked over onto her shirt... Stella needs a renovation job STAT. Her potential clients see a woman and immediately think that she's lacking and choose her stinking useless ex who wouldn't know a thing about renovation if it wasn't for her and everything she taught him. When the opportunity to remodel the disaster of a home that Luke bought comes up along with a chance to be his fake girlfriend to help his reputation she honestly can't say no - not if she wants to stay in business no matter how many puppies he threw off a roof. Luke's ex is nuts. She is steadily feeding the tabloids with horror stories about him, including one saying he threw their dog off the roof of the observatory - they never even had a dog...EVER! He needs help and not just with his public image - the home he bought in the Hamptons is a raunchy mansion filled with naked statues, mermaid fountains with water squirting nipples, and even more terrible and unspeakable things and he needs to make it livable. When Stella first comes by to propose her bid for the renovation he turns her down but when his publicist insists that he hire a fake girlfriend for the job he is happy with the two birds one stone option with Stella. It doesn't hurt that she is smoking hot and down to earth. But it's all for show - right? Another fabulous Lil book - one of my fave authors. I loved this and can't wait for book six, Best Man and the next two books in her Chick Flick Club series (You've Got Male and Frisky Business). Enjoy!

    This is the fifth 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 get an inheritance ? Need a girlfriend to convince the world you are stable? Olivia can help you out. One strict rule is no hanky-panky (though that rule is continually broken). This story centers around Luke Rafferty, aka Dr Casanova, former star of a hit TV medical show. He has gone through a messy divorce with his former costar, where the tabloid press has been printing untrue rumors about him. These stories are making him unemployable. Stella Lane is a contractor in the Hamptons. She desperately wants to renovate Luke’s fixer-upper of a mansion. With Olivia’s help, they eventually come to an agreement that helps them both out, Luke gets the fake girlfriend to rehab his image and Stella gets to rehab her dream house and free pr for her firm. Like all of Lila Monroe’s books, this has a lot of humor and great characters. This was a thoroughly enjoyable book. I received an ARC of this book from the author for my honest review.

    Did someone call for a doctor? No?....well, you’ll need one after reading Mr. Casanova! I know I do! In true Lila Monroe fashion, Mr. Casanova checks all the boxes in a good book: sizzling chemistry, humor, playfulness, and an entirely unscripted fairytale romance. The storyline pushes the boundaries of a typical “man’s world” profession and flips the script when it comes to truth and trust. I loved this book! I know I’ve said it over and over again when it comes to the author’s books, but I just can’t help it! Every single time I fall in love with the characters, the unconventional dynamic to their relationship, and the overall spectacular writing style and emotional turmoil conveyed throughout the story. The author has an indescribable way of making readers feel embroiled in the characters, layering the storyline with passion and intrigue that explodes off the pages. Luke and Stella are quite possibly two of my favorite characters in this series. Their relationship develops easily and flows effortlessly with the story. They each need the other for completely opposite reasons. But it’s their connection and touching, emotional moments together that heightens their attraction and makes the story that much more exciting, sexy, and dreamy. Each book in the Billionaire Bachelor series gets better and better. I cannot wait for Fitz’s book. From the little sneak peek we get, I know it’ll be another must-read. Cause let’s face it…the bigger the perpetual bachelor, the harder the fall. 5 Stars!

    WoW I loved. The “Billionaire Bachelors” series is just getting better and better. I loved the storyline between Stella and Luke. Luke is a hot actor who plays Dr. Casanova, the sexy lead surgeon on Heartbreak Hospital. Stella is a general contractor. They first bump into each other at the ice cream shop when Luke knocks Stella Dark Chocolate Explosion right on her shirt.He didn’t even give her a second look. Not good lol. You must read to see what happens next. I think my favorite one to date.
