🌟REVIEW TOUR:🌟 Wild Card by Lila Monroe

Wild Card by Lila Monroe

Release Date: June 11th 2018 by Lila Monroe Books
Series: Billionaire Bachelors #3
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

‘The Wedding Date’ gets a sexy twist in the new hilarious rom-com from Lila Monroe! 

Is there anything worse than playing maid-of-honor to your bitchy college nemesis? Try it when she’s marrying your DAD! Olivia Chambers doesn’t know what she’s done to deserve this karmic retribution, but she needs a date to the wedding from hell - and fast. She’s used to matchmaking billionaires, but now she needs a Prince Charming of her own. Someone handsome and famous enough to make bridezilla and her minions drool with envy… 

Someone like hottie ex-NFL star Ryan Callahan. 

Ryan is looking for love. Well, the fake kind. He needs the perfect woman on his arm to woo investors for his superstar new business venture, but nobody is scoring that touchdown… until elegant, sophisticated Olivia comes to him with a proposition. She’ll play his perfect date - if he’ll play hers. 

The deal is simple! Or is it? Take one week in the Florida Keys, a dose of sizzling sexual tension, a madcap wedding, and some seriously humid frizzy hair, and Ryan and Olivia have the recipe for disaster… or maybe the time of their lives. 

But can Olivia let down her guard long enough to let Ryan sweep her off her feet? And will Ryan take his eyes off the (business) prize long enough to see what’s right in front of him? 

My Review:

Having read and enjoyed the previous books in the Billionaire Bachelors series, I was really excited when it was announced that Wild Card was going to be about Olivia Danvers. She is such an important character in the series that her story had to be told. Needless to say, I was really impressed with the execution of the story and how well ended. It will definitely leave you wanting fore more.

At the beginning of the story we are introduced to Olivia Danvers, the owner/CEO of The Agency, a matching business that does not aim to find their clients true love (though that hasn’t been working out lately). Instead, The Agency focuses on finding the perfect companion to the rich millionaires that might find themselves looking for a date to take to an event. These events are without any strings and there is no need for a relationship to follow. Olivia is the best at what she does, but she wasn’t expecting to need a companion of her own. After finding out that her dad is getting married to non other than her ex-college roommate/nemesis, she doesn’t want to give Vanessa a reason to give Olivia trouble again. 

Olivia has been focusing on doing all that she can to make her job a success and that has left her with no time to have a relationship. She knows that this will create misunderstandings with Vanessa and to make her drool with envy, Olivia sets out to find a hot date to take home with her for the wedding week. That is when her newest client calls her to let her know that he hasn’t been impressed with the recent matches and Olivia immediately comes up with a plan to satisfied both ends. Ryan Callahan has proven to be one of her most difficult clients and she wants show him that she can deliver so she makes him a proposition. She will attend his events and he’ll attend the wedding festivities with her. It all starts with a simple contract, but the more time they spend together the harder it gets for her to see their contract as a job.

Ryan Callahan has the looks and wealth to get just about any woman that he wants. He is used to been surrounded with attention due to his job as a NFL quarterback. His name is well recognized, but after suffering an injury that stopped him from playing again, Ryan is looking for the next adventure in his life. He has been recently interested in launching a chain of health kiosks and he is looking for potential investors for this project. But the one that he wants to impress the most is an old-fashioned guy that doesn’t care so much about his football career rather than the money he can get in return. So Ryan needs someone who is used to being in those circles and who will not have trouble attending those events with him. When he hire the help of The Agency, he wasn’t expecting to find himself attending those events with the owner herself. Now he has to attend the wedding with Olivia and the more time he spends with her and all her family the more he wants to see where things can go when they go back to New York before it’s too late.

I absolutely loved Wild Card, Ryan is such a charming and hilarious guy. From the moment they met, the two of them have had such a great chemistry, but they know that they can’t take things further. Olivia’s future stepmom, Vanessa, does some crazy stuff to Olivia the minute they get to Key West for the wedding. From taking her luggage to leaving her stranded in an island, Vanessa has proven to be the worst future stepmom anyone can have. But this somehow works for Olivia since she gets rescued by Ryan every time, which is sweet and charming on his part. He has her back from the beginning and Olivia is starting to develop feelings for him. On the other hand, Ryan has to overcome a bit of anxiety when he meets with the investors for the first time. Olivia is there for them and she makes him feel secure again. They both help each other overcome obstacles in their lives and that’s when things start to get complicated. There is a contract looming over their heads and they have figure out if starting a relationship is worth it or not. I loved the concept of the book and how well it was written. The ending was cute and simple. All in all, if you’re looking for a great summer read then I highly recommend reading this book as well as the rest in the series. You will not be disappointed! :)
