Review: One-Week Wingman by Lila Monroe

☆☆➹⁀☆ 3.5-4 stars ☆➹⁀☆☆

About the Book:

Sebastian Wainwright is handsome, British, and charming… and the last man you can rely on. Bartending at Mavericks, I’ve seen his love-em-and-leave-em routine up close, and I know better than to become another notch on his king-sized bedpost. But when a little white lie catches up with me, it turns out that Seb is exactly the man I need for the job…

Posing my fake boyfriend for the week.

See, I invented The Perfect Man (TM) to keep my interfering family off my case, but now I’m back home for my high-school reunion, my sister is (surprise!) engaged to my ex, and I’m first in line to win Biggest Disappointment. I need Mr. Perfect to roll up and save me from humiliation, and since he doesn’t exist, I’ll just have to settle for New York’s biggest playboy instead.

A cocktail of disaster? That’s what I figure, but as we’re swept up in small-town shenanigans, family drama, and tipsy treehouse takedowns (don’t ask), I find there’s more to Seb than just charm and come-to-bed-eyes. A whole lot more. But when the week is up, will our fake date arrangement become something real? Or is our flirty fling destined to remain fiction?



My Thoughts:

One-Week Wingman is Lila Monroe’s lastest installment of her Billionaire Boyfriend series. As with many of the prior books, this novella is a fake-boyfriend romance, and One-Week Wingman features one of the Mavericks’ owners, Sebastian, and Roxy, one of the Mavericks’ bartenders.

Roxy has Sebastian’s number as a commitment phobic playboy from her first day on the job, but when the trifecta hits on her visit to her small hometown, she needs Sebastian to play her boyfriend. He might not be as altruistic as the boyfriend she made up to keep her mom off her back, but he is doubly as charming. For his part, Sebastian could use a fake almost fiancé to win over the owners of the business he’d like to invest in. Friends helping friends…what could go wrong? 

Thankfully, not much can go wrong. Sure there is the typical miscommunication that leads to a relationship conflict, but it doesn’t take too much intervention by their mutual friends to get the couple back together. The gang from Mavericks all have cameo appearances in this latest novella. While the angst is minimal, there some interesting twists to the plot line that make the story sweet and satisfying.
