WILD CARD by Author Lila Monroe

Is there anything worse than playing maid-of-honor to your nightmare 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, some 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?


This is such a fun read! I was laughing by myself in the corner of a coffeeshop while reading this! 

Oh man, Olivia Chambers is definitely something else. She's a wee bit stuck-up but in a funny way you know? She's a problem solver and has a patience of a saint. If I found myself in her shoes, I would've pulled a Chun-Li on her future step-mom. I'm not even kidding...

And as for Ryan Callahan... he's not the typical cocky sports superstar you'd expect. Sure, he's proud of his accomplishments but he's humble about his status. Who doesn't want that in a man right? Apparently Olivia! She's all about business and putting off fires practically the entire time. She was a tad frustrating 🤷🏻‍♀️ 

I love it! It's a fast read, well at least for me. It's light and swoony and it's everything you'd want in a romantic comedy!

If you're having a rough or stressful day, this is definitely the book to pick up! Itmll surely cheer you up.
