Hot TV star Luke Rafferty is Hollywood’s newest bad boy… at least, according to the tabloids. He’s been steaming up the screens as Dr. Casanova for ten years, but thanks to his ex-wife, some tricky contract negotiations, and that incident with the stethoscope (don’t ask), he’s suddenly on an extended vacation - with his heartthrob career on the line.
Enter Stella Hartwick.
A Hamptons local, she’s trying to get her home renovation company off the ground; winning the job for Luke’s new beachfront retreat would be her big break. And when she just happens to overhear his agent suggesting a fake relationship to give his reputation a swoon-worthy makeover, Stella sees the perfect solution to both their problems.
What’s a little fake smooching between friend(ly professionals)?
Stella is determined to keep her eyes on the prize renovation and her hands OFF the hunky actor wandering shirtless through her construction site. But Luke has other ideas. Midnight skinny-dipping ideas.
If only he wasn’t so heart-stompingly, panty-twistingly handsome…
Soon, sparks are flying, and they’re both forgetting their kisses are just for show. But can this fake relationship weather a very real tabloid storm? Or will past betrayals and the Hollywood spotlight drive them apart before their romance has even begun?
Find out in the new hot and hilarious romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!

This is the 5th book in the Billionaire Bachelors series. They are stand alones, so if you haven’t read the others, that’s okay. I haven’t read the first 2 books in the series yet. I don’t feel like I’m missing anything from them pertaining to the stories that I have read.
This is Luke Rafferty’s story. He was “Dr. Casanova” on a show called Heartbreak Hospital. He was the hot actor, on top of the world and married to his co-star. Until he caught her cheating and she lied to media and dragged him through the mud.
He finds himself in the Hamptons.
Stella is a general contractor. She loves rehabbing old houses, and she’s great at it. She’s gone through a messy break up with a cheater also.
I loved both of the characters. Luke isn’t the stereotypical Hollywood actor. There is so much more to him than that. He is down to earth and just a really great guy.
Stella is a strong woman. She runs her own business, even if it isn’t booming at the start of the book. But she’s smart and caring.
I love how this was a “fake” girlfriend where feelings turned real.
These are great books. You can’t go wrong with them.
