The Romeo Effect by Lila Monroe Review


* * * * * * * * * *


Is it fate…. Or just the Romeo effect? Discover the hot and hilarious new stand-alone romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!

Seth Harding is the King of Meet-Cutes. If you get trapped in an elevator with a handsome stranger, or stranded on a moonlit cruise with the man of your dreams, chances are, it’s not fate bringing the two of you together, it’s Seth somewhere, pulling the strings.

At least, that’s what I find out, when someone hires Seth to help win my heart. It would be romantic… if he weren’t all wrong for me. And Mr Right…?

Well, he might just be the guy behind the scenes.

Suddenly, my faith in soulmates is hitting a major complication. Seth is cynical, and argumentative… and seriously irresistible. Soon, the sparks between us are impossible to ignore. But can this hopeful romantic really find love with a man who engineers happily-ever-afters for a living? And when all the tricks and tests are stripped away, what makes two people truly meant to be?

Find out in the latest laugh-out-loud read from “The reigning queen of romantic comedy”, Lila Monroe!

The third book in Lila Monroe’s Cupids series, The Romeo Effect was an utterly charming, sigh- and swoon-worthy enemies-to-lovers romance.

Seth, a professional meet-cute mastermind, and April meet in her floral shop when he’s there doing some recon for a client. April walks into Seth’s pre-planned meet—with another man!—and instead of falling victim to the other man’s charms, she blows him off to chase after Seth. April begins piecing together Seth’s sudden appearance in her life. Unbeknownst to Seth, his client decided to take matters into his own hands, and he planned an elaborate, over-the-top and seriously misguided meet-up of his own that he needs to cancel at the last minute. He sends Seth to take care of it, thus leaving him and April alone in a romantically staged cabin overnight. All those sparks finally catch fire, and this couple gives in to all that sizzling chemistry. The more time they spend together, the more their chemistry sizzles. This couple was so perfect together, and I was rooting for them from the start. Filled with plenty of witty, flirty banter and enough heat to warm a greenhouse, April and Seth’s attraction to each other morphs pretty quickly into a relationship before either of them realize it.

Full of humor, heart and heat, The Romeo Effect was feisty, fiery and full of feels! An absolute pleasure to read from cover-to-cover, The Romeo Effect by Lila Monroe gets 4.5 smooches from me!
