Review: Get Lucky by Lila Monroe

Note: This ARC was provided by Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.

We laugh, and I kiss her again. I taste champagne, strawberries, sex, and cherry lip gloss. It's a potent combination.
"We're going to remember this night for a long time," I say, looking deep into her eyes.

You know that saying about love and hate being separated by a very thin line? Well, if there's one couple that proves it true, it's none other than high-powered divorce attorney Nate Wexler and bestselling romance novelist Julia Stevens. From the moment Nate and Julia meet in author Lila Monroe's romantic comedy novel, Get Lucky, there's something about the other that just has them on the defensive. They get off on the wrong foot and can't seem to stop pushing each other's buttons. You would think that they would do anything and everything to stay away from one another, but when Nate and Julia wake up in the same bed, completely naked, and with, at best, a hazy memory of what happened the night before, they're forced to come together in order to learn what exactly went on during those twelve or so hours they spent.

Spending the next few hours around Vegas proves to be less of a chore than Nate once thought. As irritated as he initially was with Julia, he can't help but be fascinated with the author. She's sexy and sassy and has no problem putting him in his place. She's also a bit of a geek, if the matching tattoos on their respective behinds are any proof. But Nate has already gotten his heart broken once by a woman he thought he knew and with whom he believed he would spend the rest of his life with and now jaded doesn't even begin to describe his outlook on love and relationships. However, the more time he spends with Julia sober and the more he recalls what actually occurred during their drunken evening together, the more he wonders if getting lucky is about finding out what happened or if he got lucky from the moment they met.

I do love me a well-written rom-com and when the banter is as witty as what was going on between Julia and Nate in Get Lucky, then maybe I should be considering myself the fortunate one. I have absolutely no complaints about anything to do with this novel. It was funny but also had that sexual tension that I look for between the main characters that I look for, as well as that heart that makes it a sweet read with a fine balance of snark thrown in. There was so much to Nate and Julia and I loved getting to know both of them as well as the quirky but tight-knit circles of friends they had with them (though the whole Tyler and Meredith pairing may have scarred me for life). This was my first Lila Monroe read but it certainly won't be the last. I'm seriously recommending the smile-inducing and le sigh-worthy Get Lucky. Five-plus stars! ♥
