Review: Rugged by Lila Monroe

Laurel Young needs a plan, and fast. After her reality TV boss has a major meltdown, not-so-funemployment seems inevitable--unless she can pitch the idea of a lifetime. When she sees Flint McKay's audition tape - flanneled, handsome as hell, and building a house with his own two hands - she knows she's found her secret weapon. The women of America are going to love him, especially if she can convince him to try building without the flannel shirt.

Only problem is, Flint didn’t make that tape - and he has zero interest in trading the wilds of Western Massachusetts for the bright lights of Hollywood. But Laurel isn’t the kind of girl to take no for an answer. Soon, she's knee-deep in rustic charm, and getting plenty of hands-on experience. And it turns out, this city girl and country guy may have a few things in common after all, like crazy hot chemistry, a wild side, and a weakness for good whiskey...

But can their behind-the-scenes connection last once the world falls in love with Flint? And will this be the big break both of them need- or leave them in the dirt?

Find out in Lila Monroe’s fun, sexy new novel!

*This is a stand-alone novel with HEA. No cliff-hangers!*

What happens when Ms. Hollywood meets Mr. Backwoods, a boat load of angst and sexual tension.
Laurel Young finds herself in search of a new Reality TV show, thanks to the quick departure of her former boss. She combs through audition tapes until she discovers a sexy, woodsy handyman who is destined to be the next big thing, or so she hopes.  Flint McKay is not the Hollywood type, he isn’t looking for temporary fame that could destroy his privacy but with the possibility of saving his legacy he goes all in.

Laurel has found her man. No, I mean her show. Laurel has found her show and now has to survive a month of staring at very sexy, sometimes broody Flint McKay without touching. Just  when the filming is coming to an end and the possibility that the sexual tension can finally be pursued, BAM. Lila Monroe throws in a wrench and it's oh so angsty.

Rugged is my new favorite book by Lila, it's witty, steamy and entertaining. I laughed my butt off. I love Laurel, she's got spunk. She chases after her dream with integrity. She's also witty and devoted to the eighty's, what more could you want from your heroine. Flint is a mans man, he's all Alpha and broody. Plus Flint's smart and caring. There are also lessons learned and butts kicked. 5 Stars!
Rugged is a stand-alone story with a HEA and no cliff hangers.
