[Book Review] Winning Hollywood’s Goodest Girl by Max Monroe


Raquel and Harrison sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.
First comes love.
Then comes marriage.
Then comes a baby in the baby carriage.

That’s how her brother used to sing it when we were kids—a simple ploy to get under my skin and make me stick my fist in his face—but man oh man, did he get the order wrong.

One night of “kissing” in New York catapulted us straight to the pregnancy portion of the song—surprise!—and now I have to figure out how to carry out the whole melody in reverse.

A baby on the way first.
Then love and marriage?
It’s complicated on its best day.

But our situation is far more problematic than just a simple twist of nursery rhyme lyrics. Before our night together, Raquel Weaver was the best-known good girl in Hollywood—a twenty-nine-year-old sexpot virgin whom the world adored and watched like a hawk.

Obviously, the consequences of that kind of reputation don’t just go away. Add in pregnancy hormones, the media, a fake fiancé, and a selfish manager, and you have the short list of my problems.

As a thirty-four-year-old, successful CFO of a multibillion-dollar media conglomerate, I thought I would be able to handle anything show business could throw my way, but I’m starting to think I might be in over my head.

Good thing I’m all in.
Winning Hollywood’s goodest girl is going to take everything

I’ve been so excited to read this book ever since finishing Taming Hollywood’s Baddest Boy, when Raqual was first mentioned. I just knew it was a story I needed to read. As always with Max Monroe there are hilarious moments aplenty – so many funny moments – it’s one of the things I love the most about reading their books.

Raqual is a famous Hollywood actress who is also a 29 year  a virgin which is also a well known fact, until she bumps into an old friend and decides that now is the time to pop the cherry – which results in an unexpected pregnancy. Harrison is having a rough day when he happens across Raqual in a bar a childhood friend (he has no idea she’s an actress as hes totally pop culture illiterate) and evening catching up changes their whole lives.

I liked Raqual but she did frustrate me a little bit with how she let her manger control her life, which if your famous is probably a little true to life… who knows. I just wanted to yell at her that she needed to take back control. Harrison is such a sweetheart a little hot headed but mostly the sort of guy you’d around if you find yourself accidently pregnant after a one night stand.

The story was everything I wanted and I particulary loved the conclusion and I’m so happy about whose book is coming next!!


In a nutshell…

Another fabulous little read from this fantastic due – I highly recommend.

My Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟
