I loved it. The “Billionaire Bachelors Series” is a must read. What happens when the boss becomes the client? You need to read to find out. The characters and storyline was great. It will have you laughing and oh no she didn’t moments. I can’t wait to see what will happen in the next book.
Wild Card was not what I expected at all. At times, painfully hilarious. More often, sweet. Most definitely hot. Ryan Callahan was a pleasant surprise, as each layer was stripped away, showing more of the man behind the legendary player. Even more so, it was so much fun to see a different side of Olivia Chambers, who has always been so reserved and mysterious in previous books. The two together undeniably complemented each other, creating a strong and sassy duo and even better story. Wild Card was a crazy and enjoyable adventure, from start to finish!
So far, Lila Monroe’s Billionaire Bachelors series has been all about matching up rich, handsome men with classy, attractive women in a business arrangement of sorts, and while the matched pair goes into their agreement understanding the stakes, what was meant to be a professional interaction quickly morphs into something more…something rather unbusinesslike and very personal, and through the first two billionaires’ stories, readers have been right along with the couple, witnessing their sexual chemistry, their mutual attraction, and their witty exchanges, waiting for them and their partners to realize that what they feel for one another is so much more than friendly appreciation.
In Wild Card, Monroe places the matchmaker herself, Olivia Chambers, into the ‘dating’ world that she’s created, finding herself in need of a plus one for another one of her father’s weddings, but this time, there are even higher stakes due to the nature of Olivia’s relationship with her soon-to-be step mother, so Olivia’s need for a date trumps her unease over teaming up with one of her fussiest clients, ex-NFL star, Ryan Callahan, and while these two may not see or even understand how quickly things heat up between them, readers see through their polar opposite personalities and the series of misfortunate but nonetheless comedic situations they finds themselves in for what they truly are - a perfect match.
Karma really must have it in for Olivia for her father to choose her college nemesis as his new bride, and that idea is confirmed as Olivia deals with bridezilla and finds herself in a number of chaotic situations, all resulting from people and an environment that seem hellbent on making Olivia suffer. But there is one person who has Olivia’s back and while it’s difficult for her to wrap her brain around her attraction to Ryan and the way he makes her feel, she’s quite happy with him by her side, which means that their business deal may need to be amended as long as Ryan wants to make things a lot more personal than professional and a lot more permanent than temporary.
Olivia and Ryan’s story is filled with amusing banter, embarrassing moments, and steamy situations. Try as they might, these two can’t deny the pull they feel towards one another despite the ‘roles’ they thought they were playing, and while it complicates a number of areas in their life, they both need to decide if the business side of themselves is more important than the personal side.
4 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)
This is the third installment of the Billionaire Bachelor series that is centered on Olivia Chambers’ agency that provides appropriate companions to the rich and famous. Need a fake fiancé to get the family off your back? Need a girlfriend to convince the boss you are stable? Olivia can help you out. One strict rule is no hanky-panky. Olivia has been trying to find someone for her fussy client, Ryan Callahan, former NFL Quarterback, with no success. Olivia needs a date to her father’s wedding to a Bridezilla, who was her college roommate. Olivia proposes a quid pro quo, she will accompany Ryan to his business meetings,and he will be her date for the wedding festivities. Like all of Lila Monroe’s books, this has a lot of humor and great characters. Thoroughly enjoyable book. I received an ARC of this book from the author for my honest review.
Another amazing book by Lila Monroe! I love her writing!! The way she puts so much humor in it, some crazy antics (wedding from hell/bridezilla), an uber hot guy who you just can’t help but drool over (Ryan), and an amazingly smart woman (Olivia). I love reading how it unfolds, how it all makes sense in the end. I can’t wait to read the next one!!!
A perfect summer read that’s sure to leaving you hot and sweaty!
Each and every book Lila Monroe writes just gets better and better…I cannot get enough of her fun and sizzling romances!
Like the previous books in the Billionaire Bachelors Series, Wild Card starts out as a business arrangement. But Olivia, the powerhouse woman who usually sets up the arrangements, is in a need of a suitor herself this time. And who better to fill that need than ex-NFL QB (and utterly gorgeous) Ryan Callahan–who just so happens to need someone to help him woo some investors. Win-win, right?
But once these two polar-opposite characters spend more time together, their “professional” relationship quickly shifts from business to pleasure.
*squeal* Wild Card packs so much within its pages! Fun, witty, passionate, hilarious, and romantic, Olivia and Ryan were two fantastically written characters that matched an amazingly penned love story. Their red-hot chemistry was evident from page one, but it was their intelligent and quite comical batter made this story so much more engaging and provocative. And Ryan sure gave Prince Charming a run for his money for his heroism in saving Olivia from the ridiculous situations she was put in. Seriously…that boy needs a cape, and ONLY a cape (ya’ know what I’m saying!).
I loved this book. Everything about it. Wild Card, in my opinion, is the best book in the series, so far! *sigh* Undoubtedly swoony, sexy, and heartachingly sweet, this book will leave you wanting more….and more! An absolutely fun, fiesty, and highly entertaining must read!
