The only thing more hilarious than the movies is… real life?! Fall in love with the hot new romantic comedy series from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!

Stylist Gemma Jones is competing for a once-in-a-lifetime promotion. All she has to do is take some fashion-backward guy from geek to GQ-worthy. The only problem? The man in question is her hairy manwhore of a next-door neighbor. AKA Bigfoot.

Zach Morrison has zero interest in being Gemma’s makeover mannequin. Sure, it’s fun getting his smart-mouthed neighbor all riled up, but after cashing out of his tech start-up and going through an ugly break-up, he’s taking a permanent vacation. If he wants to wear sweatpants and sleep on a mattress in the corner of an empty apartment—

OK. Maybe he needs a little push in the right direction. But as Gemma races the clock to win her bet, she finds that Bigfoot’s been hiding a few things under his baggy flannel shirts. Like abs of steel, and a surprisingly big…

Heart. He has a big heart.

Soon, sparks are flying between this unlikely couple, but can Zach embrace a fresh start – however manscaped it might be? And will Gemma beat out her fashionista rival for the top spot – and keep the truth about their bet from Zach?

Find out in the hot and hilarious new romance from “the reigning queen of rom-com”, USA Today bestselling author Lila Monroe.

The Chick Flick Club series:

  1. How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days
  2. You’ve Got Male (Jan 2019)

My Review

What happens when a writer mixes two less than friendly neighbors, a competition between archenemies, and a frat boy living techie who’s not concerned with appearances because he’s all about living his lazy lifestyle together in a romantic comedy….

Well, what readers get in Lila Monroe’s How To Choose a Guy in 10 Days is a hilarious, witty, and sexy read that will have them swooning and laughing out loud over the antics and sexual tension that exists between Gemma Jones and Zach Morrison, and when the final page is read, they’ll be ready to dive into another one of Monroe’s steamy and funny reads or headed to their television in order to watch a romantic comedy come to life on the screen.

First of all, I think it goes without saying that I’m a proud member of the Chick Flick Club; all romance readers are due to their need to witness two people fall in love and live happily ever after, even if the characters loathed each other at the beginning or simply turned their friendship into something more. We need the swoon…we need the steam…we need to revel in first love or forever love, whatever it may be, because, regardless if it’s escapism in its purest form, these stories give readers all the feels and there’s a sense of hope and contentment in every happy ending.

While the premise and storyline are a tad predictable in How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days, Lila Monroe’s ability to infuse her own blend of humor, snark, and shenanigans changes the story’s dynamics in a way that makes it original, and the fact of the matter is who doesn’t love a good romcom…there’s just something about a feel good story that includes passion and chemistry that make readers and moviegoers come back time and time again to experience the exact same feelings they get after reading/watching a humorous love story. 

Gemma and Zach’s story is one entertaining read, and the way Lila Monroe crafts their journey takes readers through the ups and downs, highs and lows of not only their individual lives and what they’ve experienced and endured, but also what seems to be brewing just below the surface between these two because what begins as mutual hatred quickly turns to mutual attraction and then springboards into something neither of them saw coming but are now unwilling to let go of, even if a few details are left out that would explain why Gemma befriends her ‘hairy manwhore’ neighbor in the first place.

I can’t tell you how fun this story was to read, and with the title of book two, YOU’VE GOT MALE, I can’t wait to see what Monroe has in store for Zoey because I imagine it will be one epic adventure of hilarity, drama, and sexiness.
