About this ebook

Fall for the sizzling new rivals-to-lovers rom-com read from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe! Perfect for fans of Tessa Bailey, Ali Hazelwood, and Emily Henry.

Josh Carlyle is charming, sexy as hell, and the perfect destination wedding hookup... At least, that’s what I think when I touch down in paradise with four days to pull off a lavish ceremony fit for Hollywood royalty. The groomsman in the next cabana with baby blues and a chiseled jawline that could crack a coconut? He’s the cherry on top of my tropical cocktail, and exactly what I need to shake off my single status and get my head (and, um, other parts) back in the dating game. 

Then Josh reveals the truth: he’s vowed to sabotage the big day and send the gold-digging bride running before his uncle even gets to ‘I do’. Suddenly, we’re on opposite sides of the great wedding war, and I refuse to let this happily-ever-after - or my career - go down without a fight.  

But Josh plays dirty… and he talks it, too. Even as I scramble to keep his sabotage shenanigans from derailing the happy(ish) couple, I can’t deny the chemistry between us. Sleeping with the enemy is looking awfully tempting… 

They say all’s fair in love, war, and wedding planning… But who’s happy ending am I chasing here? And can Josh and I turn our rivalry into real romance before it’s too late?

Find out in the sizzling new romance from “the reigning queen of rom-com,” Lila Monroe!

The Tropical Romance Test is an entertaining story with a quirky hollywood wedding in paradise! Hazel is heading to this wedding as the coordinator, to make sure everything goes perfectly for her client. Needless to say nothing goes to plan and I found it rather amusing but also quite amazed at how well she can fix things to an extent. I honestly thought the antics in this story were hilarious and how the author came up with the ideas blows my mind. I wondered whether Hazel would get her HEA!

The fourth book in the series. We have Reeve's sister Hazel getting a story. Man did I feel for her in this one. Anything and everything goes wrong right from the moment she meets Josh. Being tasked with executing the Hollywood wedding of the year comes with many bumps in the road. It doesn't help when someone is helping the chaos along. I don't blame Hazel for being upset because it's her work and reputation on the line. Josh does redeem himself rather quickly for me. He has good intentions.

I know when I get a Lila Monroe book, there is going to be so much later and tears from laughing so hard. This book is entertaining right from the start and I couldn't put it down. I love that she keeps the drama to a minimum and that our main male character doesn't give up on what he wants. He just has to have faith that his leading lady catches up with what he is feeling before it is too late. This is a must-read!
