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?Find out in the sexy, hilarious new romantic comedy from Lila Monroe!

Next day she found him reading her letter loud to his friends. Her love letter was pinned to the frat house bulletin board.She left and cut all ties with him. And he didn't try to contact her to clear the situation, not once. She was his friend and it would be the right thing to do? 🤔Later in the book we discover that she delivered her letter to the wrong door and the guys thought it was meant for another boy.Even if it was a letter from unknown girl, even if he didn't know it was hers, it was CRUEL to read someone's love declaration and make fun of it. Such person doesn't deserve any respect. He & all his "friends" were as*holes!Years later she was still pining for him and despite her weak attempts to play unaffected, she almost thrown herself at him.I asked myself if a female self-respect is not IN anymore...Yada, yada, yada. They slept together and he made clear he had no time and no desire to start something serious. They even talked abot college letter accident and he told her loud and clear that he didn't want to chase her in the past, coz he generally doesn't chase women. She just swallowed it (figuratively and literally) and tried to act unaffected. But later, as he overheard her talking to her BFF and retelling his vision of their affair from her perspective - just fun, no strings attached etc - he was offended. WTF?He made her feel guilty and she again declared her love to him in her bridesmaid's speech... Ugh! 😤Did this woman have NO pride?!He left, she wrote him again that she loved him... Did this woman have NO dignity? Some weeks later he came to LA, made some romantic gesture and she was again at his feet!Well, I didn't find it funny.Some things and people are better left in the past...

But when they both learn of what really happened in their shared past, they have to decide if a fling is really all there is left between them.

Her unique writing style, coupled with the hilarious dialogue and awkward situations, makes the reader feel completely engaged in the story!Running late to catch a flight to her best friend's wedding, Ruby collides (quite literally) with none other than Will Cassidy, the man who broke her heart in college. Rushing to the gate, and to get away from Will, Ruby is once again blindsided to find Will on the same flight, and attending the same wedding as her. The universe couldn't be this cruel to her, but she'd determined to make the best out of the situation. All she needs to do is focus on staying far away from Will as much as possible. It's been 5 years since she's last seen him, so how hard can that be? Right? A week in paradise is exactly what Ruby needed. But a week in paradise with the very man who belittled her and crushed her heart to pieces, the very man who seems to be everywhere she turns, and the same man who is crawling his way back into her heart with his sweet talk and caring touches, can only end up in heartbreak. Is Ruby capable enough to handle a vacation fling, knowing there's an expiration date?...or will her emotions backfire on her, and lose her heart to Will for him to only crush it all over again?Wow! I absolutely LOVED this book! The rollercoaster ride of emotions balanced perfectly with the comedic conversations and interactions. And not just with Ruby and Will, but with the entire set of characters. This book was very hard to put down, and I kept wondering what would happen next. The dynamic between Ruby and Will was quite enduring, and you could easily sense the sexual tension between them. Right away, I sensed something was not quite what it seemed. I had my suspicions. And once revealed, I was overjoyed to know I was right! Don't get me wrong, this book is anything but predicable, and I was even surprised many times with how parts of the story played out. But when you have that feeling that you know there's more than what's being said and done, you just have to go with it. And YES!...I was RIGHT! Lovestruck is a definite must read! A fun, flirty, and humorous beach-read that will make you swoon, and laugh, from head to toe!5 stars!*ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.* ~Kelly

    I wasn't Lovestruck with this one.I think I'm too old to fall for this type of romance. There is no way I would talk to, let alone kiss, someone who had broken my heart. Read through until the 30% mark and skimmed until 83% when it finished. The last 17% is advertising for other books.I'll leave this for the young'uns, maybe they have a higher tolerance for alcohol loaded shenanigans and lusty hijinks.*Get my walking stick hubby, it's time for my nap.*

"I want to touch you until the only word you know is my name. I want to fuck you so hard you forget that too." Holy shit.Lila Monroe gives us romantic comedy done right! I'm always guaranteed a fun and entertaining good time when I crack open a Lila Monroe book and LOVESTRUCK was no exception. The characters were feisty, stubborn, and charming. The heated and flirtatious banter was on-point and I just ENJOYED the hell out of it. It kept me on my toes and left me with the biggest grin on my face. Strong and delightful characters, an easy lighthearted storyline, and comedic situations that will have you rolling, Lila Monroe delivers yet again with LOVESTRUCK!

They reconnect on the plane and sparks start flying all over again. Ruby being Ruby tries to nip those feelings in the bud until she just can't resist Will anymore. I did enjoy this book although not as much as I have enjoyed Monroe's books previously. I found Lovestruck lacking in some areas: there were still some laugh out loud moments but they were fewer and farther between for me. I guess I'm used to laugh out loud from the belly kind of romances from this author and this was more of a little chuckle here and there. I don't think I could completely believe the romance between Ruby and Will: sure, there was a lot of steam and a lot of sexy times which was great but I couldn't believe the romance aspect. I guess it felt a little rushed in that regard. I generally love this authors writing but this book definitely fell little short for me. I'm looking forward to Monroe's next book and hope it delivers her usual abundance of RomCom. *arc received in exchange for honest review. **Reviewed by Melinda for Joandisalovebooks Blog.

The history didn't really permeate into the present relationship, which felt very much drawn from scratch.Similarly, the plot felt a little clumsy to me, in a way that has far too many coincidental meetings and steeps into unrealism, and diminishing the comedy aspect of the novel. I only really smiled a few times, rather than the laugh-out-loud, tears-streaming-down-my-face Get Lucky.A fun, easy read, but lacking in character development.

Ruby Walters is on her way to her best friends destination wedding when she runs into an ex-college friend, Will Cassidy.

Ruby wants to stay away from Will but he keeps finding ways of catching her attention. It also doesn't hurt that he's drool worthy. Ruby decides that a fling won't hurt as long as she keeps her heart out of the equation. Lovestruck has it's share of misunderstandings that drive a wedge between Ruby and Will. But misunderstanding aren't the only things that get in the way, so does strip pool games, fire alarms and jelly fish. Can the Ruby and Will write over the bad stuff and moving forward with the good? The story sucked me in. Half way through the book I couldn't put it down until I was finished. The angst had me on edge but there were plenty of happy tears by the end.. 5 Stars!

A misunderstanding drives them apart, and five years later they see each other again for the first time at the wedding of mutual friends. It just so happens it's a destination wedding, and Will is the owner of the resort. The spark is still there, and it isn't long before their flirtatious banter turns into action on that attraction simmering between them. After clearing the air of the past, it is unfortunate that they don't learn from their mistakes because more misunderstandings get in their way before they finally lay it all on the line for love.Lovestruck was a lot of fun, filled with some awkwardly cute and nerdy comedy. It was pretty steamy, but there weren't a lot of swoony, romantic type moments. All in all, though, I enjoyed this book-it was cute, charming and funny. This is my first time reading Lila Monroe's work, I enjoyed it, and I would read her again.Lila Monroe's Lovestruck gets four smooches from me!~ Danielle Palumbo

Well that’s ok, because it should be easy to ignore him the whole time, right?Wrong. “Who wants a guy who’s three minutes and done when you can have a ‘Mr. Rock your world all night long and why not another whirl in the morning’?” Oh my gosh, Lovestruk is so dang cute! I filled up a couple glasses of wine and devoured this book. Laughing with the characters and totally swooning over Will.  Lila Monroe nailed it with a perfect romantic comedy!Ruby Walter’s is adorable. She was my favorite and her character was just so real that you couldn’t help but want to be her friend. She has the worst luck ever and she always finds herself in crazy situations. It was great watching her interact with all the different characters that are provided! I also loved her job, she works in PR and represents young kids who are famous through YouTube and Instagram. I think that would be awesome!I was totally gushing over Will as much as Ruby was. He was so charming and funny. He also owned the beautiful eco-friendly resort they were staying at for the Wedding. The romance and emotions and flirting that was going on between Will and Ruby was to die for. I loved it and I couldn’t get enough. There was so much angst! Oh my gosh, after my first glass of wine I was practically yelling at my kindle for them to finally be able to freaking kiss or make a move on each other!Yes, I got a little too excited ;). “I want to touch you until the only word you know is my name.” Lovestruck was so much fun and if you are looking for a light-hearted second chance romance then I have just found it for you! I was laughing out loud more than once reading this adorable story. I guarantee you will love these characters just like I did!This is the perfect read this Summer with it’s charm and swoon worthy romance!

    Lila Monroe is an absolute must-read author for me. I know that I am guaranteed to be in for a laugh-out-loud, sexy story, with plenty of geeky humor to keep this girl happy. Lovestruck not only doesn't disappoint, but it surpassed my expectations. Lila has a knack for the push and pull between characters, which only fuels the fire between them and between the pages.

I know that I am guaranteed to be in for a laugh-out-loud, sexy story, with plenty of geeky humor to keep this girl happy. Lovestruck not only doesn't disappoint, but it surpassed my expectations. Lila has a knack for the push and pull between characters, which only fuels the fire between them and between the pages. Ruby Walters was in love with Will Cassidy, once upon a time. The hurt that he inflicted on her turned to a smolder as the years passed, until a chance meeting is followed by a whole week together in paradise. Eventually, that smolder ignites, but instead of hurt, Ruby experiences a different, and very satisfying, kind of pain (the kind one finds in muscles that haven't been used in some time!) Ruby is intelligent and fierce, while Will is thoughtful and sexy as hell. The way these two reminisced on their past history, as well as got to know each other anew, kept me captivated and I loved watching them give themselves and each other a shot at more. This second-chance romance is definitely worth a first-chance read!

    It was a nice book but I didn't find it funny... It was something to pass the time and I've already forgotten, kind of thing...
