A perfect summer read that’s sure to leaving you hot and sweaty!

Each and every book Lila Monroe writes just gets better and better…I cannot get enough of her fun and sizzling romances!

Like the previous books in the Billionaire Bachelors Series, Wild Card starts out as a business arrangement. But Olivia, the powerhouse woman who usually sets up the arrangements, is in a need of a suitor herself this time. And who better to fill that need than ex-NFL QB (and utterly gorgeous) Ryan Callahan–who jus

Olivia Danvers found a unique market in the dating world by only working with the rich and wealthy. When a client needs someone to accompany them to an event, without the strings of a relationship they call Olivia. She runs a very discreet service and her clients appreciate the efforts she goes to keep them happy.

However, she has one unhappy client at the moment, Ryan Callahan. He is ex-NFL, drop dead gorgeous and trying to launch a business idea to some investors. Every girl that Liv has set hi

**3.5 stars**

Where do I even begin with my thoughts on this book. I have read the previous two books in this series so I knew the basics to expect when it came to the story. What was a little different about this one person who set up the arrangements in the previous books was the one in the spotlight this time around.

It was interesting seeing the dynamics of Olivia's business behind the scenes. It's not something most people would think about and when they do they probably misunderstand the pu

I love the "let's pretend to be boyfriend/girlfriend" to something more books... Lila Monroe's take on one of my favorite troupes was SO fun and sexy!

Olivia Danvers the matchmaker has met her match in retired NFL player Ryan Callahan.

What starts off as a business relationship turns into more as Olivia and Ryan travel to Florida to attend her father's wedding to her psycho roommate from college Vanessa while Ryan is also looking for some arm candy in a business meeting with some investors.

***Received an Advanced Readers Copy through a blog tour hosted by InkSlingerPR in exchange for an honest review***

Have I mentioned I love these types of tropes? Yeah I have splurged, I am hoarding, and I am stalking any author with the romance trope of a 'lets pretend' relationship. I do believe I have read about 4 of these types of books just in the month of June - so yeah obsession is strong with this one. 

Wild Card is filled with so many things that I enjoy most about these types of tropes.

So far, Lila Monroe’s Billionaire Bachelors series has been all about matching up rich, handsome men with classy, attractive women in a business arrangement of sorts, and while the matched pair goes into their agreement understanding the stakes, what was meant to be a professional interaction quickly morphs into something more…something rather unbusinesslike and very personal, and through the first two billionaires’ stories, readers have been right along with the couple, witnessing their sexual ...more

5 Star Review of Wild Card (Billionaire Bachelors # 3) by Lila Monroe  
No one is more shocked that Olivia Chambers when she agrees to “date” Ryan Callahan an ex-NFL star who is looking to get finance for his new business venture and attend his meeting as his girlfriend.

4.5 SMOOCHES!

I’ve enjoyed every single one of Lila Monroe’s romantic comedies that I’ve read, and I’ve read quite a few of them. She effortlessly blends together heat and humor, keeping her plots low on the angst and drama to achieve a light-hearted, easy-reading romance. One of the things I love most about Monroe’s writing style is how she pulls me right there into it with vivid descriptions and interesting details. She brings all of this together with imaginative storylines, fun side character

Fun, fast and sexy romp about a woman who is hired by an ex-NFL player to pose as his girlfriend in some business functions, and she in turn asks him to pose as her boyfriend at her father’s wedding.

Olivia Chambers is the owner of The Agency, a company that finds the perfect fake fiancee or date for important business men or actors who need someone on their arm to attend important functions but want the fake kind of date. She’s very successful in her line of work and one of her long term client

Wild card is the third book in the Billionaire Bachelors series. It's a light novel that's easy to read and it has some funny moments. It can be read as stand-alone and those who have read the other two books might see some familiar faces. The quality of the story hasn't dropped and I enjoyed this book as much as I had enjoyed the previous two. I am also looking forward to the next two books and considering that I can say that Lila Monroe has a new fan. Olivia's father is actually a good man des ...more

After reading Wild Card, I realized that I need to make a summer reads list because this one would definitely be on it. I'm quite the fan of the "fake relationship" trope, they tend to be full of some of the most hilarious moments, which this was very fitting for this rom-com.

This one had potential, but then kind of biffed it with the reason that Ryan got all mad at Olivia. It was kind of like... really? Also - I really wanted to see Olivia finally put Vanessa in her place and that didn't really happen. Anyway, still an enjoyable read and I will be reading the fourth book.

This series in general, enjoyable, but not quiiiite there for me.

Good

This was very enjoyable. I wasn't sure I was going to like Ryan at the start, because he was coming off as an arrogant jerk. But it turns out that first impressions aren't always finale.
Olivia, I thought she was an older woman? Thinking that I wasn't excited about a cougar storyline, but I was way off. Have to say, I liked seeing the quirky girl beneath the uptight match maker veneer.
Yeah Ryan messed up, and I'm glad it wasn't the woman doing to groveling this time.

Lila Monroe’s latest installment of her Billionaire Bachelors series is hilarious. It is a great take on the fake wedding date premise. Main character, Olivia Chambers, runs the fake date service (she is not a madam nor is she a matchmaker per se), but when one high profile client just can’t find the right person to act as his partner for some business schmoozing, Olivia fills in.

The laughs begin when her client, Ryan Callahan, steps in to bail out Olivia. When her dad announces that he is marry

A fun, fast-paced read with some sizzling hot chemistry

Whilst Wild Card is book 3 of a series, it can easily be read as a stand alone. However the previous two books are so good it's well worth finding the time to read them all! This is a hugely fun rom-com, with one crazy soon-to-be step mom, a super sexy hot jock of a hero, a heroine who really hasn't got it as together as first appearances would suggest and plenty of mad-cap action. I've read quite a few Lila Monroe books, so I was confident

He needs a fake girlfriend and she needs a fake boyfriend. The perfect arrangement or a huge mistake? Wild Card is a great contemporary romance. This book has everything a romance novel needs. One hot male, a feisty female, and an arrangement that neither can turn down. After all, it is just a week, right? This is a stand-alone in the series that can be read without reading the others.

When her father calls informing her that he is walking down the aisle once again, Olivia Chambers can't help but cringe a little, the man changes wives as much as most people change undergarments, and this time he's really picked a "winner". As soon as he tells Olivia the name of his blushing bride-to-be, Olivia can't believe what her father is saying, the woman who has captured his heart, also happens to be the woman she roomed with at college, and also despises with a capital "D".
