Where I felt Ms. Monroe could have had a great story was if she'd taken the time to really flesh out everything. As it was written, Maggie's mother was a contrivance dropped into the storyline whenever something shmaltzy was needed. We never even met Drew's parents, not to mention Maggie's surprisingly absent father. Their involvement, written well, would have cemented the "real" feel of the story.
Also, the way Maggie first reconnect with Drew felt too contrived. A comedic mistake is made with the type of dessert needed for the party, and Becky is following Maggie to try and rectify it or to, perhaps, hurl further insults at her. Maggie makes it through a door, slips, lands, and Drew is there. Okay. Where's Becky? She's that embarrassed by what just happened and she doesn't follow Maggie through the door? We don't get even a single line telling us that thankfully Becky stopped following to deal with the fainting ladies of her party? Nothing. This smacks of contrivance. Use the situation, then ditch it.
I realize this is very light room-com, but that shouldn't excuse a gifted writer like Ms. Monroe from tying up loose ends. It would make her story stronger, be more satisfying, and propel her from good to great. All this in my opinion, of course.
Book Two: Billionaire with a Twist: No. Just...no.
Maggie Hayes is back home after her business failed to regroup and come up with a plan to get her dreams back on track.
Drew Delaney is back home making this is home base for his production company.
A unlikely chance encounter brings these two former neighbors back together. Yet this time Drew sees Maggie is a whole different light.
Maggie always though Drew was sexy and even crushed on him way back in the day, so finally getting to live out her deepest fantasy with Drew is like a dream come true.
But just as their relationship heats up and possibly on the verge of something deeper, life throws a curve ball that could spell disaster for this couple.
So will they part and think of this a brief fling? Or will they fight for what could be their forever love?
Oh my goodness! I'm noting gonna lie, I always get excited when a Lila Monroe book lands on my ereader. So when I picked up Mr. Right-Now I did a little happy dance, grabbed a glass of wine, and settled down to get lost in Lila's words. And hours later with wine not drunk, my sides hurt from laughing, and in despite need of a cold shower (FYI ~ Drew is hot, hot, hot!), I am completely satisfied and head over heels in love with this book.
I connected with Maggie and loved how feisty she is. She may be down on her luck, but she keeps her head held high and sets about finding a way to make her dreams come true once again. I thoroughly enjoyed her witty banter with Drew, her sister Lulu, and friend/Drew's sister McKenna. And the camo by Ruby was fun little tidbit.
Drew is just down right yummy. He's got the looks for sure, but there's more to him than that. He's got a big heart that has been willing to help anyone in need. He loyal to those around him even if those people don't have his best interest at heart. Add in the fact that he's sweet (yes sweet!), funny, talented, and an all-around nice guy. Seriously, I dare you not to fall in love with him!
Lila is a storyteller you know will deliver a story full of hilarity, heart, soul, and passion. And Mr. Right-Now has all that pack into a very sexy cover.
So if you're looking for a read that will leave you satisfied and yearning for an alcohol infused cupcake, then I highly recommend you pick up Mr. Right-Now! Heck, even if you aren't one for an alcohol infused cupcake I'd still recommend you pick Mr. Right-Now. Either way, don't deny yourself from reading this rip-roaring book.
Down on her luck, Maggie is back home and trying to rebuild her life, and when she runs into her crush Drew (who is also an ex-boybander and the boy next door) in the most hilarious fashion, things quickly heat up between them. I adored watching the two of them build a relationship and the back and forth and all the tension between them. Drew and Maggie just have this spark between them that is undeniable.
Drew is always trying to impress Maggie, but he quickly finds out that she's different than any girl he's ever met, and she's not impressed with the things he thinks she would be. She's down to earth, has a dirty mind, and just clicks with him. When they go out, things always get interrupted and always in the most spectacular fashion. I was laughing out loud during the police officer scene in this book and am laughing now as I write about it.
Drew and Maggie's story is predictable, yet at the same time it's one that you can't help but want to read. I loved the characters and how the story flowed. These two were both stubborn, and had some communication problems, especially towards the end of the book that made me want to pull my hair out, but all in all this was a fabulous read that made me laugh, swoon, and made me blush a few times too. If you're looking for a quick hot read that will make you laugh out loud, definitely grab a copy of Mr. Right Now today!
