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?

My Thoughts:

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.

 

EXCERPT

CAL POVI bring the rest of the dirty dishes over to the sink, and we work in companionable silence for a few minutes, Jules rinsing plates before handing them to me to set in the dishwasher.

See? Nothing sexy about dirty dishes.

“Great stacking, Cal,” she says, looking surprised.

“What, you think I don’t know how to load a dishwasher?” I make a face. “I’m not completelyuseless.”

“Well, no,” she allows, tilting her head to the side. “Not completely.”

“Oh, you think you’re funny,” I say, reaching over to dip my fingers in the suds before flicking them in her direction.

“I am,” she says, flicking me back. “And don’t start.”

“Start what?” I ask, reaching over and splashing more. But this time, the water hits her square on, soaking her T-shirt so the thin cotton goes translucent. Clinging to her curves, and the outline of her bra.

Okay, so apparently dirty dishes can get sexy, after all.

Jules clears her throat and grabs a hooded sweatshirt from the back of a chair and pulls it on—zipping all the way to her chin. “You good to finish in here?” she asks, looking flustered.

I nod. Down, boy. “You go put your feet up.”

“You don’t have to ask twice.”

Jules exits the kitchen, fast, and I sigh. Kissing her back at HQ was a massive mistake . . . which left me with a massive hard-on for the rest of the afternoon. I couldn’t help it. Something about Jules is dangerously kissable.

And lickable.

And definitely f@#kable.

I scowl at the dishcloths. I’ve never had a problem keeping my hands to myself before, and if I wanted to get a workout, I have plenty of options. I may not be living the wild playboy lifestyle anymore, but that doesn’t mean I’m a monk.

But Jules is off limits.

Which is probably why I’m going crazy over here trying not to notice the way she bites her lower lip when she’s thinking . . . or how her jeans fit way too well.

F@#k, I’m going to need a damn cold shower twice a day at this rate.
