Best Man by Lila Monroe Review



Arthur ’Fitz’ Fitzgerald is the hottest, most reckless playboy in town… and my new husband?!

Believe me, I never dreamed that I’d be walking down the aisle to a quickie marriage with a total stranger, but thanks to my eccentric god-mother, an iron-clad will, and a blind, three-legged cat called Alfred (don’t ask), I need to get hitched ASAP. And when the perfect candidate leaves me at the altar, there’s only one person crazy – and drunk – enough to step up at the last minute.

The best man.

Also known as the man most likely to get caught romping with three Rockettes in the back of a Sex and the City tour bus. The man who could melt my panties at twenty paces – and make me want to pour a bucket of ice-water over his head. The man I just pledged to love and honor and… oh god, WHAT HAVE I DONE?!

Our arrangement was clear: keep up the charade long enough for me to claim my inheritance and send my slime-ball cousins packing. Our plan is working perfectly.

Then Fitz decides to change the rules….

Can this fake marriage turn into something real? Find out in the latest hot and hilarious romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe.

I’ve read each book in Lila Monroe’s Billionaire Bachelors series, and I’ve enjoyed them all. Best Man is the sixth and final book in her Billionaire Bachelors series, and I’m sad this fantastically fun and steamy series is over. Romantic comedies based on the fake relationship trope, they’ve all been light-hearted, easy reads that were full of humor and heat but low on the angst and drama. Monroe’s writing never fails to pull me into her stories with vivid descriptions, attention to details and unique plots. One of the things I appreciate most about her writing is the way she thoroughly develops her stories, filling them with imaginative elements and interesting side characters that help to paint a vibrant picture for the reader. Building on that foundation, Monroe’s creative plots about endearing couples and their sexy romances are always an enjoyable reading experience for her readers.

Best Man was a bit of a different take on the fake fiancé storyline, and of the six books in the series, this one was the most emotional. Left at the altar by her original fake groom, Becca is in a bit of a jam when she runs into the best man at a bar as she’s drowning her sorrows in tequila and fries. A devastatingly handsome Brit, Fritz, listens to her tale of woe and offers to step in. Fritz has worked hard to cultivate his reputation as the notoriously carefree playboy everyone knows him to be. But Becca sees past all of that, beyond the façade he shows the world, to the kind, thoughtful man beneath the surface. The heat between Fritz and Becca was fiery, and while it may have started out as a business arrangement, there was no faking their chemistry—or the very real feelings they both were developing. But millions of dollars are hanging in the balance, and not everyone is buying the new couple’s story.

A humor-rich plot and a sexy, sweet, swoon-worthy romance about a couple I was pulling for from the start, I smiled the whole way through Best Man. This book was a fantastic end to a series full of entertaining, amusing, fun-to-read romances. Best Man by Lila Monroe gets 4.5 smooches from me!
