REVIEW: The Tropical Romance Test by Lila Monroe



* * * * * * * * * *


Sleeping with the enemy is looking awfully tempting… Fall for the sizzling new rivals-to-lovers rom-com read from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe! Perfect for fans of Tessa Bailey, Ali Hazelwood, and Emily Henry.

Josh Carlyle is charming, sexy as hell, and the perfect destination wedding hookup… At least, that’s what I think when I touch down in paradise with four days to pull off a lavish ceremony fit for Hollywood royalty. The groomsman in the next cabana with baby blues and a chiseled jawline that could crack a coconut? He’s the cherry on top of my tropical cocktail, and exactly what I need to shake off my single status and get my head (and, um, other parts) back in the dating game.

Then Josh reveals the truth: he’s vowed to sabotage the big day and send the gold-digging bride running before his uncle even gets to ‘I do’. Suddenly, we’re on opposite sides of the great wedding war, and I refuse to let this happily-ever-after – or my career – go down without a fight.

But Josh plays dirty… and he talks it, too. Even as I scramble to keep his sabotage shenanigans from derailing the happy(ish) couple, I can’t deny the chemistry between us. Sleeping with the enemy is looking awfully tempting…

They say all’s fair in love, war, and wedding planning… But who’s happy ending am I chasing here? And can Josh and I turn our rivalry into real romance before it’s too late?

Find out in the sizzling new romance from “the reigning queen of rom-com,” Lila Monroe!

Lila Monroe had me laughing, swooning, and eagerly tapping my Kindle as I devoured her latest romantic comedy, The Tropical Romance Test. Set against the backdrop of a tropical island paradise, this romcom kicks off with an unforgettable meet-cute and delivers all the push-and-pull of the rivals-to-lovers trope. Monroe’s sharp wit and sparkling prose bring the characters to life, from the feisty heroine to the charming yet infuriating hero, creating a dynamic and irresistibly entertaining story.

The banter between Josh and Hazel positively crackles with chemistry, and their journey from adversaries to something more is both hilarious and heartwarming. An entertaining blend of humor, romance, and tropical escapades, The Tropical Romance Test kept me smiling from cover-to-cover. The Tropical Romance Test by Lila Monroe gets 4.5 smooches from me!
