Suddenly, my faith in soulmates is hitting a major complication. Seth is cynical, and argumentative… and seriously irresistible. Soon, the sparks between us are impossible to ignore. But can this hopeful romantic really find love with a man who engineers happily-ever-afters for a living? And when all the tricks and tests are stripped away, what makes two people truly meant to be?

    This book is so much like that Will Smith movie, Hitch. I am disappointed with a lack of originality. And the POV is mostly told from April. So it seems April is the one who obsess with Seth. While I have no idea why Seth likes/ falls for April. The progression of the story is also dragging. With no significant events/ development that helps the chemistry. Also because of April's POV, I feel the chemistry between April and Seth are forced. Maybe James have better luck. Really, I can not find This book is so much like that Will Smith movie, Hitch.

    The Romeo Effect is another charming, light-hearted and sexy rom-com in the Cupid's series by Lila Monroe. I've read a few of her romantic comedies now, and I always enjoy them immensely.

As it turns out, she met Seth first and in spite of the original plan, the sparks between them become impossible to ignore. Filled with witty banter and boatloads of steam, this story was fun, fiery and full of feels. I can always count on Monroe to deliver an unputdownable, funny, feel-good romance, and it's what to drives me to pick up her books time and time again. Five stars for Seth, April and The Romeo Effect.

    I always thought that when I met the right guy, everything would just fall into place. Simple. Easy. April is a talented owner/operator florist and would love to make it onto a coveted wedding supplier list. It would be the turning point for her to gain some much needed traction in the competitive market of floristry.Whilst pondering what she can do over a coffee she literally bumps into a man, ending with her having coffee all herself and him lending her his shirt. He also offers her his phone ‘I always thought that when I met the right guy, everything would just fall into place. Simple. Easy.’ April is a talented owner/operator florist and would love to make it onto a coveted wedding supplier list. It would be the turning point for her to gain some much needed traction in the competitive market of floristry.Whilst pondering what she can do over a coffee she literally bumps into a man, ending with her having coffee all herself and him lending her his shirt. He also offers her his phone number. Not the way she expected to meet someone but I guess she has nothing to lose going on a date right? Turns out that this ‘unexpected’ meeting was in fact orchestrated by Seth, a meet-cute arranger. Basically if you are crushing on someone but need help meeting them, he does the research and arranges for you to coincidentally be in the same place at the same time. After that it’s up to fate to see if anything eventuates between them.Seth was approached by someone to arrange a meet cute between him and April. However, for April the chemistry just isn’t there and after noticing Seth before she ever saw her meet-cute stranger, she seems to be set on getting to know Seth better. He seems to keep popping up where she is and once she figures out the truth about what he does she begins to question her belief in fate.However, nothing can stop the chemistry between them and when he saves her from a weekend doomed to be a disaster things quickly move into something more. When Seth offers to help her with her quest to make it on the coveted list, she can’t help wondering if trying to manipulate fate will lead to karma knocking on her door one day. When it’s time to pay up, it feels like the only currency accepted will be issued by her heart. How could something that felt so right go so horribly wrong. And how does the thing that went so incredibly well feel so bittersweet. This Romeo needs to do what he does best and this may be the toughest job so far.

To me, this felt a lot like the movie Hitch (one of my favourite rom-coms); the authors even go as far as to mention the movie in the book when someone questions what our hero does for a living.

The writing, plot, dialogue, and chemistry between the characters blend perfectly to create this swoon-worthy and sexy enemies-to-lovers romance.Seth and April have a very unique relationship and sparks fly right from the start. Their opposite views on love and romance, or “meet-cutes”, induces fun and laughable banter between them that radiates sexual tension. Between a somewhat stalker-y client of Seth’s hell bent on winning April’s affections, a strategy plan to get her flower shop on the exclusive Bride List, and a big red ‘no hook ups with clients allowed’ rule, Seth and April’s attraction soon leads to crossing the proverbial line and there’s no going back. But miscommunication and omission forces Seth to either change the trajectory of his career, or let April go for good.The Romeo Effect is a sweet and flirty quick read, highlighted with superbly timed comedic and emotional elements. You won’t be able to turn the pages fast enough to find out what happens next. A great read just in time for Valentine’s!*ARC provided for a voluntary honest review.* ~Kelly

The King of Meet-Cute meets the Queen of Flowers, and their story is spectacular.Seth Harding is a speechless Cyrano, orchestrating first meetings for Romeos and Rome-ettes, giving fate and destiny a nudge to speed up the journey to HEA. A young doctor hires Seth to set up an ‘accidental' meeting with April, the lovely owner of Blooms, but plans go hilariously and delightfully awry, destroying Seth's 100% success rate. What Seth and his client failed to consider is the possibility that the compelling florist has zero interest in the handsome doctor, or that Seth is the one who catches April's eye.Between April's admirable relationships with her BFFs, Seth’s poignant crisis of conscience, a wonderful goth employee, a pull-no-punches cousin, and a stalkingly close call, this one has something to keep every reader entertained and devouring the pages. With heaps of humor, lots of steam and tons of heart, you’ll want to be sure you don’t miss this laugh-out-loud funny, heartfelt, phenomenal read!

Until April....I loved that April was all for trying with her date with a certain doctor. But I was happy and excited to see the sparks fly between her and Seth.

It won't have you busting a rib laughing, instead it has a warm, gentle humour that is mixed with great characters and a charmingly wonderful story. Which makes it a superior read in my book.April and Seth really do have great chemistry and their story held my attention from start to finish. I enjoyed that we got both POV's, allowing me to really connect with them. There are some incredibly thought provoking and moral questioning moments to add balance to the humour. I loved where the author took this pair and how she avoided the obvious "spanner-in-the-works" situation, which would have been cliched, instead using a different method to ruffle the course of true love.I never once felt bored whilst reading this. Even when I had to put it down the story and characters were still in my mind (and heart) and I got back to the book as soon as I could. It's a great rom-com that I happily recommend and best of all, even though it features previous main characters, can easily be read as a stand alone story.

If Seth Harding is on the job, you’ll probably never know! In Lila Monroe’s latest installment of her Cupids series, a “professional Romeo” meets his true love.Ms. Monroe has created another lighthearted, fun read in The Romeo Effect. Her characters are off-the-chart. Seth as a romance cynic in a job that has him creating opportunities to meet the person you’ve been crushing on is delicious irony. I loved April. She’s sweet and charming. She is the quintessential romantic, which makes her job as a florist perfect for her. When James, a pediatric resident, hires Seth to set up a “meet-cute” with April, the laughs begin. I loved the detailed preparation and planning that Seth puts into his meet-cutes. He really takes his job seriously, and makes the situation feel okay. However, when certain clients and co-workers raise the creep factor to alarm-setting, the entire idea of scene-setting for a meet-cute becomes eerie and stalkerish.As Seth and April work through their individual commitment and professional issues, readers get to meet the incredible people in their respective lives. I really enjoyed all the characters! I also loved that Ms. Monroe pulled one over on me. I thought I had the plot denouement figured out pretty early, but I was wrong and Ms. Monroe’s plot line kept me charmed to the very end. Adorable characters, a unique premise, and a fun plot with some light messages made The Romeo Effect a delightful read.I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    A love manipulator - A meet-cute king - A matchmaker of epic proportionsthese are all monikers for the real-life cupid himself, Seth Harding. Seth Harding is quite the paradoxical man, and with his contrariness comes a whole litany of issues, not only for himself, but his business, and his current client - a Mr. Right looking for his Mrs. Right. But that love connection doesnt appear a match made because the woman his client wants, doesnt want him, and what makes things even more complicated is A love manipulator - A meet-cute king - A matchmaker of epic proportions…these are all monikers for the real-life cupid himself, Seth Harding. Seth Harding is quite the paradoxical man, and with his contrariness comes a whole litany of issues, not only for himself, but his business, and his current client - a Mr. Right looking for his Mrs. Right. But that love connection doesn’t appear a match made because the woman his client wants, doesn’t want him, and what makes things even more complicated is the fact that the more interactions has with Seth, the more she wonders if destiny played a hand in bringing them together…but what happens when she finds out that Seth orchestrated everything and all of their chance encounters are anything but…and when Seth’s latest client threatens to ruin his perfect record as well as make him go back on his golden rule, the idea of true love, of destined/fated love is thrown out into the cosmos and what comes back may very well ruin his business and break several hearts in the process. . The manufacturing and manipulating that is involved with Seth’s business is most definitely going against the belief of fate bringing two people together…or is it? The fact that it brings Seth into April’s life may prove his theory, but for the fated romance lover April, anything or anyone that provides a helping hand for love doesn’t seem to be meant to be, and perhaps may even face the repercussions of said orchestration when karma comes calling. I like to mix a few sweet and light-hearted reads into my reading schedule after several dark ones, so The Romeo Effect was exactly what I needed. I like that Lila Monroe doesn’t adhere to popular/stereotypical conventions of romantic comedies or at least flips them a bit and makes them her own, which absolutely worked in Seth and April’s story. 4 Poison Apples

Orchestrating a moment to get a relationship started may be his career, but Seth doesn't necessarily believe in letting fate make it's own love matches...April is a florist who is working hard to get her business off the ground when she meets the most intriguing man. There's something about Seth that April just can't get enough of... but she also starts to wonder why is he suddenly hanging out in the background of all the places she tends to frequent...~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The Romeo Effect was a funny and adorable story about the man who manipulates love as a career... and the woman who calls him out for it. Seth and April may have met when a client of his already has her in his sights, but when the two of them experience a true connection, Seth faces a professional dilemma... and the possibility of a forever love he never saw coming...This was such a cute read! April was a funny and sweet character who works hard, has some fantastic friends and has a great head on her shoulders. When she finds out that she is the subject of one of Seth's meet cute clients, she makes it known how much she dislikes the idea of it all... and yet is very interested in Seth himself...Seth was very good at his job, but once he sees the other side of his love machinations through April, he starts to realize just what a hazard some of the situations his business sets up may really be. And even though he has a strict policy about dating someone who was previously connected to a client... there is something about April that makes breaking all of his rules completely worth it... I really enjoyed the plot and characters in this book. Seth and April were sweet and fun, and had some undeniable chemistry that they just couldn't avoid forever. The premise for the Romeo business was fresh and original, and presented so many fun possibilities. I was annoyed that a certain client didn't get a little retribution that I felt was coming to him though... that would have been GREAT to see!!I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.Check out the Blog!http://nightbirdnovels.com/2020/01/29...Follow Me on InstagramFollow Me on FacebookFollow Me on Twitter

The Romeo Effect is a delightful standalone but you don't want to miss out on the fun of the first two books!April loves love. As an up and coming florist, she plans the perfect bouquet to mark the day for others while longing for her own HEA. She's also busting her butt for a place on a wedding supplier list that would put her business on the map! After meeting a charming, witty and deliciously handsome man, who sadly walks away, she accepts a date from a guy who literally ran into her at a coffee shop. A little cliche but hey it could be fate, right?Seth is Manhattan's hottest Cupid. He has made a career of successfully engineering the perfect meet-cute for relationship hopefuls. Accidentally bumping into the girl of your dreams at a coffee shop... hitting it off with the guy seated next to you at that sports event... Sure it could be a coincidence but it might not be sweet serendipity after all. This book is a light hearted, funny, adorable read! Of course, it reminds us all of the movie Hitch but it's supposed to, the author even pokes fun at herself about it and really, who didn't love the "date doctor"? Seth and April are perfect for each other and I adored their playful banter! April even teaches him to use his powers for good. Loved every minute!AnnMarie - Alphas Do It Better Book Blog
