Rating – 4 stars

This book was a complete cliche and I am HERE FOR IT!

From the get go I knew this book was going to grab my attention, I was laughing within the first few pages of picking it up, it was hilariously written by Monroe. The entertainment value of this book is completely off the scale, I hadn’t laughed at a book so much in ages until I read this one. I really enjoyed reading it and would definitely recommend it if you were looking for a light hearted, fun romance read.

I feel us not knowing a lot about Julia and Nate to start off with was better for the story, which seems like an odd thing to say but let me expand… The entire premise of this book revolves around Julia and Nate retracing their steps to figure out what wild things they got up to the night before and not knowing anything about them meant that EVERYTHING was a surprise to us!

But as the story went on we did get to know them more and I was completely obsessed with them both.

The writing of this story was another high point for me. The author had this way of making us cry with laughter whilst also maintaining a somewhat mysterious atmosphere AND writing smut. Which I thoroughly enjoyed…

And the plot, whilst very predictable, was also so good! The whole blackout drunk/retracing their steps really helped add the edge to the story that it needed to make it stand out that little bit more. The entire book was a cliche, including the ending, but I knew that and I went into the story expecting it which is why I enjoyed it so much!

On the whole, I loved reading Get Lucky by Lila Monroe, it was a hilarious book that filled me with joy after I’d finished reading it.

Snowed In With The Billionaire, Lila Monroe – A Review.

Guess who’s back, back again! It’s me, I’m back again with another festive read, sorry for spamming up your pages with my festive books haha.

Snowed In With The Billionaire by Lila Monroe.

Overall rating ❄️ out of 5 snowflakes.

Let me start by saying I am pretty damn annoyed with this book. It was an ebook that I picked up for free so I shouldn’t be too mad… But, I got to about 45% and I was really getting into it, only for it to end at 46% and then the remainder be an excerpt from another novel. Like what? WHY do they do that?

Aside from this I just found this book to be very boring, it wasn’t that festive other than being set at Christmas and the romance left a lot to be desired.

Ace (our main male lead) was a stereotypical rocker turned music industry exec who was incredibly 2D, it felt like all he wanted was sex from Paige. And as for Paige, her inner monologue was ridiculous, if you want the man just go get him, it’s the 21st century!

The other “characters” if we can even call them that, they play such a small part, really had no background or distinguishing features for me to properly comment on them.

Whilst there was certainly no shortage of sex scenes in Snowed In With The Billionaire they did feel cheap, and as if they were there to fill the time. They didn’t add anything to the story and to be honest, weren’t the best written scenes I’ve read…

On the whole, Snowed In With The Billionaire was just another stab at Fifty Shades of Grey, except it was set at Christmas. A really disappointing read.

Let me know if you’ve read this one and what you thought!
