Mr Casanova by Lila Monroe is book five in her hilarious, sexy and awesome standalone Billionaire Bachelor series. This is the story of Hot TV star Luke Rafferty and Stella Lane, a Hamptons local who is trying to get her home renovation company off the ground despite the efforts of her ex-husband and ex-business partner. When these two meet it really isn't instant sparks and falling all over each other though - in fact, Luke doesn't even notice Stella or the chocolate ice cream he accidentally knocked over onto her shirt...
Stella needs a renovation job STAT. Her potential clients see a woman and immediately think that she's lacking and choose her stinking useless ex who wouldn't know a thing about renovation if it wasn't for her and everything she taught him. When the opportunity to remodel the disaster of a home that Luke bought comes up along with a chance to be his fake girlfriend to help his reputation she honestly can't say no - not if she wants to stay in business no matter how many puppies he threw off a roof.
Luke's ex is nuts. She is steadily feeding the tabloids with horror stories about him, including one saying he threw their dog off the roof of the observatory - they never even had a dog...EVER! He needs help and not just with his public image - the home he bought in the Hamptons is a raunchy mansion filled with naked statues, mermaid fountains with water squirting nipples, and even more terrible and unspeakable things and he needs to make it livable. When Stella first comes by to propose her bid for the renovation he turns her down but when his publicist insists that he hire a fake girlfriend for the job he is happy with the two birds one stone option with Stella. It doesn't hurt that she is smoking hot and down to earth. But it's all for show - right?
Another fabulous Lil book - one of my fave authors. I loved this and can't wait for book six, Best Man and the next two books in her Chick Flick Club series (You've Got Male and Frisky Business). Enjoy!
Mr Casanova is the 5th book in the Billionaire Bachelors series, finding love when you had given up and showing the population that woman are just as good, if not better than men at their job sometimes.
Luke is reeling from his divorce and the collapse of his very public career, he has moved to the Hamptons to get away from the public eye, but when he his management insist he finds himself a fake girlfriend to fix his image issues he can only think of one woman that fills that spot, the cute contractor. Stella is determined to prove herself to everyone that she is the brains behind the company, when she accepts the contract she finds herself in the spotlight and her work splashed across a very successful magazine everything changes. Now the light is shining on her will her time with Luke fade away?
Personally, this wasn’t my favourite from Monroe, I am a huge fan of her writing and this book didn’t catch me like I thought it would. Having read the previous books in the series I hope that the next instalment heats up and leaves me wanting more.
