Synopsis:   After losing his best friend to another guy, the notoriously too-confident Max Emory suddenly feels lost. He may have devastatingly good looks, an abundance of charm, and a claim to one of the biggest hotel empires around, but he has no ambition anymore. So when his fed-up friends decide they’ve had enough of his moping, they sign him up to be the next bachelor on the reality series Love Island. And between his pride and his forged signature on an ironclad contract, Max just can’t say no.
Now he’s stranded in paradise with twenty-four women, one terrifying goat, and Becca, the breathtaking barista who already turned him down back home. The closer Max gets to Becca, the more determined he becomes to win her over. As she gets to know him better, things start heating up. But is Becca really after Max’s heart—or is she after the cash prize she could claim once the cameras stop rolling?

My thoughts:  The bachelor meets For love or money meets survivor. That's the best way to describe this book. I was laughing my booty off the whole time I was reading it. Max is hands-down, my favorite character. You will laugh so hard reading this book that you'll start crying. Max is the heir to Emory hotels. He graduated from NYU with a poli-sci degree and now he doesn't work. It's not that he's lazy and doesn't want to work like his friends think, it's just he wants to do something he loves and is passionate about.  His friends forged his signature to get him on the reality show to find love. Now comes Becca. The barista that Max hit on before he knew he was going to be on the show or that Becca was a contestant as well. Max and Becca form an alliance throughout the filming. Max has falling Becca and on the last day when Max accepts Beccas bouquet, she has a choice to make. Love or money. You won't regret reading this book. It has a gecko named Little G and a demon goat named Hades. Watch out for the gummy bears.
