Author: Lila Monroe
Release Date: September 2, 2015
Billionaire Hunter Knox comes straight up – with a side of trouble.
Heir to a bourbon fortune, he’s hired my ad agency to save his family business. It’s my chance to win a star client and prove I can play with the big boys, until my one-night stand comes back to haunt me like the ultimate hangover.
Now I have to think up a killer campaign, and keep from falling into bed with Hunter again. Which is easier said than done when he’s the most handsome, arrogant, downright sexiest man I’ve ever met.
I’m going to need another drink.
We were both whispering. I wasn’t sure why; the house was so big that we might as well have been in another county as far as the staff were concerned. But the darkness and the secrecy and the soft touches somehow made this moment illicit and stolen and not to be spoken aloud.
“I trust you,” I murmured.
There was a pause as Hunter took in my words. “Thank you,” he finally said.
My hand was still on his. As if they had a will of their own, my fingers began to stroke his palm—I blushed, glad that the poor light would hide it, and pulled away under the pretense of selecting a snack.
The tin was small, but it held a solid assortment of sweets, dried jerky, and home-made trail mix. I chose a chocolate in a bright green foil and unwrapped it, the foil rustling like a secret waiting to be told. When I bit down, a sweet cognac liquor burst across my taste buds, and I couldn’t keep from groaning in ecstasy.
“Hey, you try eating this and not expressing your appreciation!” I shot back at him in a whisper, waving the chocolate in his face.
He raised an eyebrow at me, and then he bit right down on the chocolate in my hand, his soft lips just moistening the tips of my fingers.
His rakish grin set my blood on fire as he leaned forward and carefully licked a smudge of chocolate from my thumb.

Warning: love on the rocks.
Sexy bourbon billionaire Hunter Knox hired me to turn around the failing family business, but I wound up losing him the company he loves. Now I have to make it right – which won’t be easy when he’s off the grid at a cabin in the woods, drinking himself into a sexy rugged stupor.
But if there’s one thing I know, it’s that Hunter is worth a shot. Or two. He better line them up, because after tonight, I’m never drinking again.

Billionaire with a Twist had me cracking up laughing from the first line, it’s a funny yet heart crushing book. Lila Monroe made Ally a character that you could identify with. Allison Bartlett (Ally) is a intelligent hard working young single women just trying to prove herself in the workforce but always seems to come up against the cronyism of the “boy’s club” at work. Hunter Knox, the CEO of Knox Bourbon, is just trying to keep a hold of his company and keep it from failing when he meets Ally. This book had me laughing until the just before the end, the end just completely crushed me. I’ve tried reading other books to help recover from the end of this one but it hasn’t worked, I’m convinced that the only thing that will help make my heart whole again is reading the rest of the series and hope the story ends the way I need it to. I absolutely loved this book.
