Title: Mr. Right-Now
Author: Lila Monroe
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 30, 2017
“I’m face-down in forty glorious inches of well-endowed cake, seriously reassessing my life choices when suddenly I hear it. The voice that launched a thousand teenage boy-band dreams. My #1 crush, Drew Delaney himself.”
Ten years ago, Drew was boy-band royalty: the subject of a million teenage fantasies – and the guy next door. He was so far out of my league, I couldn’t see him for stars, but now I’m back in town for our high-school reunion, guess who I run into but Mr. Right-Now himself…
Older. Hotter. And still sexy enough to make me forget about the glittery white frosting currently smeared across my chest.
Sparks are flying, and so are my panties, and soon, our trip down memory lane has taken a detour to ‘oh my god, don’t stop!’. Population: me.
But can I turn Mr. Right-Now into Mr. Forever? Or will crazed fans, vicious yoga moms, and three dozen c#ck-sicles (don’t ask) doom our romance to the ‘Where are they now?’ section of MTV’s greatest hits?
You’ll be begging for a taste of Lila Monroe’s new sexy, laugh-out-loud summer romance!
Oh my, my. This is such a cute story. And sexy. Any funny. But also emotional, too. How do you deal/date when the man in question is the older brother of your former BF, lead singer of a boy band, and the stuff even adult fantasies are made of? You don’t. Just take the ride and see how long it goes.
What really got me into the story was Maggie. I liked how even after admitting failure and coming home, she still had her pride, self-worth, and humor in the situation. She didn’t fail, per se, but she did have some lemons thrown her way. Her wit and her baking skills were still intact and she used them to her advantage. You have to read the book to find out what naughty things that she made but they were all in good fun. Plus, her mother didn’t make a big deal of it because she knew that Maggie made other things.
Drew is hot. Just hot but he also had other goals besides riding the coattails of stardom. Too bad his friend didn’t say that. I would have to say that Drew couldn’t have put a stop to all that sooner but then we wouldn’t have had the conflict in the book. I especially like how in the end of the book that he realized that he majorly screwed up but Ms. Monroe doesn’t go the route of making me dislike him. His sister is right there to tell him what he did wrong but didn’t necessarily tell him how to fix it.
The biggest problem that Drew and Maggie have in the book is communication when it came to their life goals. As a romantic couple, they were perfect but it was like they were on a cloud and never wanted to face the music when it came to anything long term. Hence the title of the book. Ms. Monroe nailed the humor and sexy times in the book. Her writing flowed and I must look up her other books because I fondness for billionaires in suits.
Overall, Maggie and Drew are delightful without being overly cute. Not understanding each other’s future goals is a big sticking point for them in the end and they have to decide what’s more important? Individual goals or the goals as a couple. Must reading for me.
