4 Smooches!

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?

Find out in the sexy, hilarious new romantic comedy from Lila Monroe!


This was a second-chance romance, set in a tropical location. It was a quick read, and if I’d have had a clear schedule when I picked it up, I could have read it in a single sitting. Lovestruck was light-hearted, sexy and heavy on the comedy.

Ruby and Will went to college together, where they became close but never bridged the gap from friends to anything more, though the feelings were there. A misunderstanding drives them apart, and five years later they see each other again for the first time at the wedding of mutual friends. It just so happens it’s a destination wedding, and Will is the owner of the resort. The spark is still there, and it isn’t long before their flirtatious banter turns into action on that attraction simmering between them. After clearing the air of the past, it is unfortunate that they don’t learn from their mistakes because more misunderstandings get in their way before they finally lay it all on the line for love.

Lovestruck was a lot of fun, filled with some awkwardly cute and nerdy comedy. It was pretty steamy, but there weren’t a lot of swoony, romantic type moments. All in all, though, I enjoyed this book-it was cute, charming and funny. This is my first time reading Lila Monroe’s work, I enjoyed it, and I would read her again.
