Review: Baller Boss by Lila Monroe

☆☆➹⁀☆ 4.5 stars☆➹⁀☆☆

About the Book:

Ex-pro athlete Austin Banks is cocky, charming, and the ultimate player… at least, that’s what I think when he makes me an offer I can’t refuse for my dream job. Except, it’s not technically me he’s offering it to…

Other Jennifer Walker is the bane of my existence. We may share a name (and a similar email address) but that’s where the similarities end. Other Jenn is bold, confident… and off having wild adventures on the other side of the world. So, she won’t mind if I borrow our identity back and prove I’ve got what it takes to have Main Character Energy, too. Right? 

 I figure I can put up with Austin’s playboy shenanigans long enough to level up my career, but I’m not expecting the sparks between us to be quite so sizzling, or for there to be a sweet, driven guy buried under all that charm. Soon, my one little white (not-quite) lie is spiraling, and I’m in way over my head (and out of my underwear). 

Can I find a way out of this mistaken identity mix-up? And will Austin’s past keep us from scoring a home-run – on, and off the field? 



My Thoughts:

Lila Monroe has done it again with her latest release, Baller Boss.  It is the ninth book in the Billionaire Boyfriend series.  I have to say this is my favorite in the series so far.  

The story is told in dual narration by Jennifer Walker and Austin Banks.
Austin is part of the Mavericks Bar gang.  He is a former professional baseball player, and now he is trying to open a man spa.  He just needs one thing….someone to launch his marketing campaign.  He needs the Jennifer Walker. 
I adored Jenn!  Her backstory and her journey are so much fun.  She’s surrounded by great friends, and those secondary characters added so much to the story. Once she lands her dream job, everything in her life seems to be lining up perfectly.

What would a romance be without some angst?  While Baller Boss has minimal angst, it does a have a little, and that plot twist is was a bit of surprise but ultimately a fun one. I really enjoyed the story culmination, the denouement, and especially how Jennifer takes life head on.
