Max Riley is the man of your dreams. Or at least he will be, for a price.

As his alter-ego Mister Romance, Max is a drop-dead gorgeous escort who makes romantic fantasies come to life. No sex, just swoon-worthy dates to die for, and the cream of New York's socialites can't get enough. Whether they want a dominating billionaire, bad boy with a heart of gold, hot geek, sexy biker, or best friend who loves them from afar, Max can make it all happen, but he's careful to keep his real identity a secret.

Enter investigative journalist Eden Tate. Having caught wind of the urban legend of Mister Romance from a lovestruck client, Eden is determined to publish a scathing expose on Max and his ability to swindle lonely society women out of their fortunes.

Desperate to protect his anonymity and his clients, Max challenges Eden to give him three dates. If she doesn't fall in love with him, she can run her story with his blessing. If she succumbs to his charms, the story dies.

Cynical Eden has no doubt she can resist his fake romance personas, but when the real Max admits he’s falling for her, she has to decide if the professional liar is telling the truth, or if the passionate man with the mysterious past is just one more character designed to con her out of her career-making story.

Don’t miss this sizzling new standalone from the internationally best selling author of Bad Romeo, Broken Juliet, and Wicked Heart.

Holy hell! The queen of romance does it again. Just when I thought she couldn't top her last one. She does and it's almost as great as her last book Wicked Heart.

As you can probably tell, I'm a HUGE fan of Leisa Rayven and her books. She's an auto-buy author for me and after reading Mister Romance, it's exactly why. I trust her implicitly to deliver an amazing story, strong and likable characters, and all the damn FEELS I can handle in one sitting - because I read this in one sitting, yes, I couldn't get enough.

Let's just talk about Max for a second, a/k/a Mister Romance a/k/a the Man of my Dreams. Seriously, this could have taken a wrong turn in so many ways. I'm so sorry I doubted Leisa for just one second because this could've turn into a Hallmark-movie-gone-bad type of a situation. You know the one? Or maybe you don't? You expect a movie to be cute and offer great entertainment and then 15 minutes into the movie you remember all the laundry you have to do or people you have to call to gossip about how shitty the Hallmark movie is going.

But NO! This was just so great. I was skeptical because the male escort trope can just go wrong in so many ways. But these characters were just so damn lovable, and just when you think you can predict the plot, you can't. And every action is justified in a reasonable way so it all makes sense.

I fell in love with Eden too. She's a complex character and her interactions with Max were just so fantastic and just so enjoyable. And them together? Well fuhhhgghedaboutit. The romance is a slow build and by the time we get to THE steamiest scene, you will be all hot and bothered.

Go and pick this one up IMMEDIATELY!

If you're looking for a fun read with adorable/sexy/loveable characters and interesting settings, this one is for you! But I caution you, you will be hooked and if you haven't read Bad Romeo, Broken Juliet, and Wicked Heart, you might be ruined once you read Mister Romance but I recommend those as well. Leisa Rayven just doesn't disappoint. She was born to write funny and sexy romances!

Oh, and all her "series" books tend to be stand-alone stories except for Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet.

Happy reading!
Writing has always been a passion for Leisa, and even though she originally intended to be an actress, it wasn’t long into her time at drama school that she began writing plays.
Those plays were bad. Very bad. Well, her friends thought they were good, but that’s because they were always cast in them and any opportunity to be on stage was met with an obnoxious amount of enthusiasm. Since then, she’s honed her craft, and several of her plays have been produced and toured throughout Australia. These days, playwriting has given way to fiction writing, and Leisa’s debut novel, BAD ROMEO, was published through Macmillan New York in December 2014. The sequel, BROKEN JULIET was released in April 2015, and the final book in Leisa’s Starcrossed series, WICKED HEART, will hit bookstores and kindles on May 3rd, 2016. The Starcrossed series has gained hordes of passionate fans all over the world, and the books have now been translated into eight foreign languages. Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet have also featured on international best seller lists in Brazil and Germany. Leisa Rayven lives in Australia with her husband, two little boys, three cats, and a kangaroo named Howard.
(Howard may or may not be her imaginary marsupial friend. Everyone should have one.)
