Publisher Description

Fake date. Real trouble. Fall for the hot & hilarious, fake-dating, small-town rom-com from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe! Perfect for fans of Tessa Bailey, Ali Hazelwood, and Emily Henry.

Jackson Kane is a hot Hollywood A-lister… and the first guy I ever loved. We spent a magical summer together ten years ago, but now he’s off dazzling on the red carpet, and I’m… up to my elbows in cranky plumbing, renovating my grandparents’ old B&B on Cape Cod. He’s the last man I’d expect to run into with a wet T-shirt and no bra (don’t ask)  — until it turns out, he’s shooting his latest movie right here in Blackberry Cove.

And he wants me back.

There’s no way I’m getting swept up in his celebrity circus… until my bitchy cousin lays claim to our family heirloom engagement ring, and I need a fake boyfriend to beat her game. A handsome charmer with perfect acting chops… Now where can I find one of those…? 

It’s supposed to be just for show, but Jackson is determined to show me our chemistry is just as strong as ever. And boy, is he impossible to resist. But between movie shenanigans, stroppy starlets, and - oh yes - the hoards of paparazzi suddenly trailing our every move, this fake date is more real than I ever imagined.

Can we find a way to take a second chance at first love? Find out in the hot & hilarious new romantic comedy from Lila Monroe!

Perfect book to read end to end!

The Hollywood Marriage Bargain is the latest from Lila Monroe and once again she didn't disappoint. Are you a fan of second chance romance with a sliver of fake romance woven in? Then this is the book for you! It checks off a lot of the warm fuzzies for me, especially the guy chasing the girl. Jackson has been re-evaluating life and realizing his one shot at true love just might have been with his summer fling from ten years ago. Tessa is back in her little town of Blackberry Cove to recover from a failed relationship and giving her all when the other person didn't. Jackson had always been her first love and she wouldn't mind trying again with him but not at the cost of giving up herself. The perfect book to read from end to end and never wanting to put down!

Loved it

I received a complimentary early release e-book prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This was a really fun second chance romance that is the start of a brand-new series. In it we get to know Jackson who is a big Hollywood actor as he brings his movie production to the small town of Blackberry Cove. The town holds some wonderful memories for Jackson because its where he fell in love with his summer girlfriend from ten years before, Tessa and it just so happens that she is now living in the town with her grandfather while she renovates the family inn.

Tessa is not looking forward to the movie production and Jackson. In fact, she keeps turning him down for dinners. That is until she finds her grandma's ring and has to compete with her cousin for it and she declares that she is dating Jackson with marriage thoughts. Jackson agrees to help her out because he wants Tess to just let him get to know her and then there is this kiss...

This was a really fun story. It's pretty low on drama and no exes and no jealousy. But it does have a bit of insta lust/love and was a really fun and light read with a second chance storyline.
