Rating: 5/5

Will Cassidy is hot, infuriating, and the guy behind the biggest heart-stomping humiliation of my life. He's also hosting my BFF's destination wedding at his super-luxe tropical resort, so short of a hurricane or outbreak of the plague (here's hoping), I'm stuck within tongue's arm's reach of him for the next seven days.

But I'm not a naive college girl anymore, and there's no way I'm falling for his (many) charms again. I just have to ignore the romantic wedding shenenigans, his miraculous abs, all those intimate beach sunsets... And did I mention those abs?

Maybe a wild vacation fling is exactly what I need to even the score... But between the scorching chemistry and all-inclusive margaritas, I'm getting drunk on love. Which definitely isn't part of the plan.

Can I keep my heart zipped - even if my bikini bottoms are lost somewhere on that nude beach? And how do you let go of the past when you're holding on tight to the past's (very ripped) torso? 

Ruby is such a fun, free-spirited girl with a job all of us creative writers and marketing people want! A USC graduate, she created a cozy little Los Angeles life for herself as the CEO of her very own PR firm. With a specialty in social media kid sensations, Ruby's life is always fun and a little crazy. But, none of the scandal's she comes across are as devastating as her college humiliation that involves the very hot Will Cassidy, the man who owns the pair of abs she never quite got over.

So, when she runs into Will LAX not looking her best and he offers to upgrade her to first class with drinks on him, like any rational woman, she accepts. The teasing taunts and the memories of their prior friendship turned heartbreak is the only think keeping Ruby on her toes. But, like all good situations, bad (or fun?) things happen. 

Lila Monroe created a fun light romantic read that has you attached to the characters from the very first page. Ruby's humor bounces off of the page and you have no choice but to laugh along with her and be jealous of her crazy Mexico adventures. The chemistry between Ruby and Will is so good you have to feel sorry for Ruby as she tries to deny her libido and listen to her damaged heart. 

Yes, Will Cassidy is everything you're looking for in a sexy billionaire with more! He has a wit to match Ruby and her obsession with Star Trek. Sorry, no Fifty Shades type of action going on here, but there is an interesting scene with a jelly fish. With a big heart and always on the lookout for new adventures, especially the ones involving the galaxy, he's impossible not to like! 

Lovestruck had me mad that I had to go to the gym and put the book down but happy knowing what I was coming home to! A great read any time of the day or year, but bonus points if done on the beach! Just watch out for those jellies!
