Lovestruck: A Romantic Comedy Standalone by Lila Monroe
Published by Self-Published Genres: Contemporary, Romance
One week in paradise with the one man I can’t resist…
Will Cassidy is hot, infuriating, and the guy behind the biggest heart-stomping humiliation of my life. He’s also hosting my BFF’s destination wedding at his super-luxe tropical resort, so short of a hurricane or outbreak of the plague (here’s hoping), I’m stuck within t̶o̶n̶g̶u̶e̶’s̶ arm's reach of him for the next seven days.
But I’m not a naive college girl anymore, and there’s no way I’m falling for his (many) charms again. I just have to ignore the romantic wedding shenanigans, his miraculous abs, all those intimate beach sunsets... And did I mention those abs?
Maybe a wild vacation fling is exactly what I need to even the score... But between the scorching chemistry and all-inclusive margaritas, I’m getting drunk on love. Which definitely isn’t part of the plan.
Can I keep my heart zipped - even if my bikini bottoms are lost somewhere on that nude beach? And how do you let go of the past when you’re holding on tight to the past’s (very ripped) torso?
Lovestruck is a charming and fun second-chance romance, and I am now a card-carrying Lila Monroe fan. Ruby and Will were close friends in college, but Ruby fell in love with him and poured out her heart through a letter right before their graduation. Well, that didn’t go over so well, and she was incredibly hurt and has not talked to him in five years. She still feels humiliated over the incident; therefore, she’s less than thrilled to she suddenly and unexpectedly find herself spending a week with him at his resort in Mexico, where her best friend is marrying one of his best friends.
Will is even sexier than when Ruby last saw him, and he’s acting as if they never ended their relationship on awkward terms. Although she tries to avoid him as much as possible, he keeps seeking her out and flirting with her. They had sexual tension when they were younger, but it is nothing compared to the chemistry they share now. Ruby can’t deny she wants him, but she is not ready to trust him.
Will and Ruby are great together. They share playful and flirty banter packed with sexual tension, and it is evident how much they cared for each other while they were in college. I really appreciated that they did not wait the entire book to broach the subject of their past—although it is painful for Ruby—and they are mature about it when they do. Will is a dreamboat. I simply loved this fast-paced, sexy and entertaining romance, and I’ll be reading a lot more of Lila Monroe.
