What it’s about:
Playboy CEO, Cal McAdams, lives life in the fast lane: hot women, hotter deals, and… a fake fiancee? I signed on to help reform his reckless image and win custody of his god-children, but I wasn’t expecting to come face-to-face (and mouth-to-mouth) with my wild Vegas hook-up from three years ago.
AKA, 6”3 of tanned muscle, sharp suits, and ‘undress me’ eyes.
AAKA, the best bed-shaking sex of my life.
AAAKA, the man who couldn’t be more off-limits if he had a uranium belt wrapped around his, um, assets.
I’ve never been one to break the rules, but Cal has me wanting to rip them up – and roll around naked on the scrap paper. But with just three weeks to turn this bachelor into a DILF, can we keep our crazy chemistry from derailing his plans? Or will gold-digging relatives, rambunctious pre-teens, and a little thing called love leave us both crashed out of the race?
Hot Daddy by Lila Monroe is the second book in her Billionaire Bachelors series of standalone romantic comedies. I really enjoyed the premise of this book. The story flows nicely, and it is perfectly paced. It is told from the dual perspective of the main characters, Jules and Cal.
From their first meeting, their chemistry is off the charts. The easy banter is fantastically fun. The dialogue felt genuine, and I bought every word. Fast forward three years and their paths cross again. The memories of their sizzling one-night stand bubble to the surface and create a bit of awkwardness in their current work arrangement. The secondary characters are great additions to the story; Cal’s young charges are delicious, and their manipulative aunt provides some interesting plot twists.
While I loved these two characters and their chemistry, the swearing and numerous sex scenes put me off a bit given the context of Jules and Cal’s work arrangement. In general, I really enjoy Ms. Monroe’s writing style. I adored her portrayal of the playboy who easily morphs into a loving, attentive “uncle”. All in all, a fun, light rom-com with adorable kids, a great couple, and an interesting story line.
