REVIEW: The Treasure Hunt Hookup by Lila Monroe



* * * * * * * * * *


Join the hunt for love in this hot and hilarious rom-com with a black cat heroine, cinnamon roll hero, and all the pumpkin spice fall reading vibes! Perfect for fans of Tessa Bailey, Ali Hazelwood, and Emily Henry.

Reeve Donovan is Hollywood’s hottest, most charmingly-stubborn director… and the last man I expected to find strolling down Main Street in my sleepy Blue Ridge hometown. Especially since last time I saw him, I was wearing (half) a slutty super-spy costume, and he was facedown in an Indiana Jones outfit, searching for my… buried treasure.

With his tongue.


It turns out, my steamy Halloween hookup wants to find the location of my Great-Grandpa Earl’s missing gold… along with everyone else. The Fortune family’s wayward fortune is the stuff of legends, but I always figured it was just that: fiction. Until Reeve and I stumble on a clue that jump-starts our quest… and makes us unlikely partners in our hunt for the gold.

Soon, we’re swept up in a wild race for the treasure, jostling with a reality TV crew, grumpy historians, and my idiot of an ex-husband (don’t ask). I’ve been burned in love before, and have zero intention of falling for this arrogant charmer… Except Reeve has other plans.

He wants me. I want the gold. And my burning loins want… another go-around with Indy’s whip. We’re both used to getting our own way, so what happens when that way leads straight to the bedroom? And can we outwit the other treasure hunters to claim the ultimate prize?

Find out in the hot and hilarious new romance from Lila Monroe!

Lila Monroe delivered another sweet and steamy romantic comedy—with a dash of mystery—in The Treasure Hunt Hookup. She expertly combined the charm of a small town setting with a one-night-stand-turned-second-chance romance, and the result was a story that was equal parts heartwarming, hot as heck and hilarious. The characters were endearing, and their chemistry crackled with energy, and the witty, snappy banter was its own kind of foreplay. Lila’s plots are always so unique and fun, and she outdid herself here with the mystery-based storyline that brought an intriguing vibe to this romcom.

The Treasure Hunt Hookup was an entertaining and engrossing, and Lila’s witty writing kept me in my seat, tapping my Kindle as I devoured this book. Monroe weaves the romance and humor she’s known for with a bit of mystery and a whole lot of steam for a fun, flirty and fiery read. The Treasure Hunt Hookup by Lila Monroe gets 4.5 smooches from me!
