RELEASE BLITZ & 4 STAR REVIEW: Lovestruck by Lila Monroe



Title: Lovestruck
Author: Lila Monroe
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 30, 2017



Blurb

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!

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

Ruby and Will were really good friends in college. After Will unknowingly broke Ruby's heart, she distanced herself from him. It's now years later and they run into each other when they are travelling to a friend's wedding at a fancy resort in Mexico. A resort that Will owns. 
“Ruby Walters,” he says with a slow grin that only emphasizes how handsome that face of his still is.
“Will Cassidy,” I return, groping for my dignity. Every inch of me is abruptly aware of the flyaway hairs careening from my shoulder-length blonde bob, the deep red blouse I only hastily tucked into the pale blue skirt it doesn’t quite match—the first items of clothing my hands fell on in my closet after I called the cab. Will, of course, looks totally pulled together other than the wet blotch on his sleeve: not a dark brown hair out of place, not a crease in his obviously tailored suit. And damn if he doesn’t fill it out even better than he would have five years ago at USC, the last time I saw him.
He’s got a real Henry Cavill vibe going on, though I know the guy doesn’t have half the dignity of Superman. Five years ago he trashed the close friendship we’d shared as if it had never meant a thing. Any other feelings I had for him died then too. If my body is flushed right now, it’s only because of my mad dash over here. I swear.
“You’re about to get run over,” Will remarks. The tour group is coming up fast. I hurry around the bend in the lane. Will turns, his gaze following my progress, as if he’s evaluating my walk—or checking me out.
“Sorry,” I say again, meaning the apology a little less than I did when I thought he was a stranger. “About the water.”
“You seem to be in a bit of a hurry,” he says dryly.
“My flight finishes boarding in ten minutes.” Hopefully I’ll be through Security and through with this conversation in five.
Will’s eyebrows arch. “Funny, so does mine. It must be fate.”
There’s got to be at least one other flight leaving at the same time. “I wouldn’t count on it,” I say as we shuffle forward with the moving line. “Unless you have business in Puerto Vallarta.”
“Not business,” he says, his grin widening. “Not exactly, anyway. A good friend of mine is getting married.”
Oh, no. No way. “Please tell me your friend isn’t named Trevor,” I say, but my heart has now sunk past my gut all the way to my knees.
Will pauses for a second, but even then he looks unruffled. Could the guy do me a favor and ruffle for once in his life?
“Either you’ve developed some sharp psychic abilities, or we’re going to the same wedding,” he says. “You’re friends with Brooke?” 
“Yes,” I mutter. “She’s my best friend, who for some reason decided she need to leave the country to get married.” And there’s no way I’m relaxing this week now.
“Oh, I know the reason,” Will says. He pulls his keys out of his pocket, tosses them in the air and catches them, all nonchalant, and sets them in one of the plastic bins we’ve just come up on. “The hotel we’re staying at? My wedding present to them is free run of the resort.”
Damn. I can’t help blinking at him, remembering how much my one room set me back. “So Trevor must be a really, really good friend of yours.”
“I suppose,” Will says. “It wasn’t that much trouble. I own the place.”
Despite a bit of a bumpy reunion, Ruby and Will start to reconnect. And over the course of a week they are able to be friends again. Their relationship is playful and fun. As they spend time together, they both realize just how much they missed the other person. Will makes a point to show her the island through his eyes and it isn't long before their friendship turns romantic. But when Will finds out why Ruby backed away from him all those years ago, their relationship takes a turn and they both have to learn to put the past behind them. 

I love a good second chance romance. This book came at a good time for me because I had just read a bunch of books that made me cry and Lovestruck is lighthearted and fun. Since the wedding is the reason Will and Ruby thrown together, we get to experience all the wedding shenanigans with them, as well as some extracurricular ones. As a couple Will and Ruby are adorable and they have fantastic chemistry and I couldn't help but root for them to work things out.
