What It’s About:

 
Arthur ’Fitz’ Fitzgerald is the hottest, most reckless playboy in town… and my new husband?!

Believe me, I never dreamed that I’d be walking down the aisle to a quickie marriage with a total stranger, but thanks to my eccentric god-mother, an iron-clad will, and a blind, three-legged cat called Alfred (don’t ask), I need to get hitched ASAP. And when the perfect candidate leaves me at the altar, there’s only one person crazy – and drunk – enough to step up at the last minute.

The best man.

Also known as the man most likely to get caught romping with three Rockettes in the back of a Sex and the City tour bus. The man who could melt my panties at twenty paces – and make me want to pour a bucket of ice-water over his head. The man I just pledged to love and honor and… oh god, WHAT HAVE I DONE?!

Our arrangement was clear: keep up the charade long enough for me to claim my inheritance and send my slime-ball cousins packing. Our plan is working perfectly.

Then Fitz decides to change the rules….

Can this fake marriage turn into something real? Find out in the latest hot and hilarious romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe

My Thoughts:

This book is so much fun!  I have thoroughly enjoyed Lila Monroe’s Billionaire Bachelor series, and Best Man is the perfect finale to the series.  In this final installment, Ms. Monroe adds a little twist; instead of a dashing billionaire in need of a fake date, it is the heroine who is in need.  However, she doesn’t just need a fake date, she needs a fake husband!

Jilted at the altar by her contracted fake fiancé, Becca is doomed to lose her inheritance.  She isn’t after the money, she only wants to keep a promise to her benefactor, Marigold.  When all seems lost, in walks Arthur Fitzgerald–Fitz to his friends–the best man at Becca’s failed, fake wedding.  Fitz, a world renown playboy comes to Becca’s aid as a lark—“sure why not?  It’ll be a laugh” — by marrying her.

Both Becca and Fitz are likable characters.  Becca’s low-key lifestyle juxtapose to Fitz’ high profile is great.  The character development is organic, and as the two get to know one another, they become more empathetic and their list of things in common grows.  I loved how the two supported and encouraged each other.

The perfectly paced plot allows ample opportunity for everyone in the newlywed’s atmospheric circle to chime in about this arrangement.  From Becca’s quirky apartment neighbors to Fitz’ judgmental parents, the secondary characters provide plenty of laughs as well as some drama.  My only issue with the story is how Fitz became the best man in Becca’s failed fake wedding.  There is no explanation for how or why Fitz is the best man know each other, and given their dichotomy, Scott and Fitz aren’t even in the same social circle. Aside from that unexplained introduction to Fitz, the book is a whirlwind of laughs, drama, and romance.
