REVIEW ➼ Taming Hollywood’s Baddest Boy by Max Monroe


Do people say they hate someone’s guts so that they can still fall stupidly, head-over-heels in love with the other parts?
Asking for a friend.

Okay, fine. I’m not asking for a friend.

I’m asking for me—and I’m begging you to tell me that the practice of falling in love with your should-be-enemy is common.

Please tell me that I’m not the only person to track down a guy—who used to be Hollywood’s baddest bad boy before he left LA for good—at his off-the-grid cabin in Alaska, show up unannounced, and find him gloriously naked.

This probably happens all the time…right?

Tell me I’m not alone in my stupidity—that I’m not the only woman who would fall for gorgeous blue eyes and a sexy devilish smirk, even if they belong to a broody, mysterious jerk.

Please. Please. Please. Tell me I’m not alone in this.

For the love of everything, I need all the supportive girl power I can get if I’m going to convince Luca Weaver to come back to Hollywood—otherwise known as the place he hates so much that he ghosted Oscar-level success and escaped to no-man’s-land for the last eight years just to avoid it.

Yeah, don’t worry—that smoke you’re smelling isn’t your house catching fire as you read this…it’s just my career and what was previously known as my heart going up in flames.

Gah. Is it just me, or am I totally, completely, and utterly screwed?

He was Hollywood’s sexy bad boy, rebel without a cause — a present-day James Dean. Now, though, he’s a hot Alaskan lumberjack of a man with absolutely no desire to go back in time.


Taming Hollywood’s Baddest Boy is everything I never knew I needed in my life but I was living for this book. It was full of everything I love about Max Monroe’s writing and I couldn’t get enough of Billie and Luca!

Billie is about to head out on a life changing adventure when she can’t keep her mouth shut and promises to deliver an actor who has been out of the Hollywood scene for eight years. Luca left the Hollywood scene because he could feel himself spiraling and didn’t want that for himself.

I LOVED Billie. Seriously, that woman had me cracking up. She doesn’t give up, no matter how crazy the idea may be. She is determined to prove herself and prove everyone wrong. She is stubborn, sassy and smart. Luca, the former bad boy turned lumberjack. It is hard not to love him either. He has a sweet and caring side, but also kind of a grumpy jerk. They had so much chemistry and I loved how effortlessly their relationship formed.

Taming Hollywood’s Baddest Boy will have you laughing until you’re crying, swooning over Luca, loving Billie’s sass, and falling in love with these two characters and their crazy Alaskan adventure. Another MUST READ from Max Monroe!
