Review: Maverick Mogul by Lila Monroe

☆☆➹⁀☆ 4 stars ☆➹⁀☆☆

About the Book:

Playboy bachelor Charlie Fox is handsome, charming — and looking for a date to the TWELVE weddings he’s attending this month. He’s topping the city’s ‘Most Eligible’ lists, but he needs a woman who won’t swoon at his feet — or go diving to catch that bouquet. A fake girlfriend is the perfect solution, he’s just not expecting a very familiar face to show up as his plus-one…


The last time I saw Charlie, he was playing Mr Popular at our high-school… while I was stuck being Miss Invisible. Now — thanks to a rogue Chihuahua, my frat-bro boss, and a gallon of gluten-free frosting — he’s making me an offer I really should refuse. Play his fake girlfriend for a summer of wild weddings?

It’ll be worth it, as long as we can keep our hands to ourselves.
And our mouths.
And… other parts, too.

As the wedding marathon gets underway, the sparks between us are anything but fake – and breaking the rules has never been so fun. Can ‘just for now’ turn into ‘forever’? Find out in the sizzling, hilarious new romance from “the reigning queen of romantic comedy” Lila Monroe!



My Thoughts:

Author Lila Monroe’s romantic comedies are sure things. They’re always fun, funny, and provide a satisfying end. Her characters are natural and the dialogue feels genuine. Her latest novella, Maverick Mogul, is the start of her series of standalone tales, Billionaire Bachelors Club).

Maverick Mogul features Grace, a personal assistant who is amazingly resourceful but lacking in confidence due to a recent and ugly break-up, and Charlie, a man from her distant past who is just as handsome and successful as everyone thought he would be when he ruled the campus in high school. This uber adorable romantic comedy is told in a dual POV which adds a lot to the character development and story.

I loved Charlie and Grace. They’re both characters that are easy to root for. They have an interesting shared history and currently, they have great chemistry and banter. The fake date trope is done endlessly, but Ms. Monroe seems to have mastered making it feel new. The weddings that Charlie and Grace attend are super fun adventures, and there are some added bonuses for Grace at each event. Long-time fans of Ms. Monroe will enjoy the cameos by characters from past books, and new readers will not see the connection and will not have any trouble following the story without that connection. However, I predict new-to-Lila Monroe readers will be inspired to pick up her previous rom-coms.
