My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mika Jolie hit this one out of the ballpark! I could not put it down until I had devoured every single word from beginning to end, and I loved every single uninterrupted moment of it! (Such a rare mommy occurrence LOL!) I have read several of her works before, but none of the Platonically Complicated Books and I am sad that I haven’t now, but bonus is I now have some to go devour while I wait for the next book to come out in the series.

Rules of Engagement is all about Lucas and Kate. Might I just say I absolutely adore Lucas! He is the perfect book boyfriend material ladies!! Step back I think I have claimed this one as my favorite of 2019 so far!! (Granted we are only in February LOL) He has a bit of it all! Including the hot swoony single dad vibes, gets me every time!

Both Lucas and Kate are best of friends. Their friendship has managed to stay platonic and the thoughts of more has been kept within the confines of their fantasies. Everything is about to change though when a plan to help out Lucas with his ex wife from hades starts to complicate things in all the right ways! These two were absolutely dynamite together! So much fun to read and I just couldn’t get enough! Definitely one to add to the re-read list! Can’t wait to find out what will come next! Thanks for such a fantastic read Ms. Jolie!!

Rules of Engagement: A Single Dad Romance (Platonically Complicated Book 3) by Mika Jolie is a friend to lovers romance story that leaves you with a big sigh and feeling good. I love Mika’s writing style and her characters are always realistic but this story I loved. It was told in the male POV and I loved the difference it placed on the whole feel of the story. It was fun and delightful and damn was it sexy. The plot is simplistic yet the complexity of the emotions involved show the real and true multiple layers our characters.

Lucas’s ex is making waves and threatens the one thing he loves more than life, his daughter. Just when things seem impossible one of his best friends offers their help. One that will change the course of his life. BUT Bro code stands in his way to true happiness.

I thoroughly enjoyed the journey from friends to lovers. Jolie’s writing is always a delight and I look forward to reading more from her in the future. Light, fun and easy, with a healthy dose of chemistry and attraction that steams up the sheets makes for a wonderful read.

If you love a forbidden romance story, then Rules of Engagement is just what you need.

RULES OF ENGAGEMENT A PLATONICALLY COMPLICATED NOVEL by MIKA JOLIE

Five Stars

Most people will go above and beyond for family and friends. This holds true in this story. Kate is Lucas’s best friend and things start to look a little different. I didn’t like how afraid Kate was to express herself to Lucas. I prefer my characters to have a backbone. This romance was thought out perfectly. The author took the time to build a relationship meant to last. Lucas is a perfect gentlemen. He doesn’t push Kate and let’s her find her way to him on her own. I dislike people who use their children as weapons to hang. I really enjoyed the relationships between the characters all have a bond and it made fighting for Emma easy.

Rules of Engagement, by Mika Jolie, is the third book of the Platonically Complicated series. This single dad romance that is sweet, witty, fully charged and a great read!! Lucas and Kate burn the pages of this story with their push and pull; their dynamic creates such a great story line, you cannot resist it. Lucas is a strong character; it plays well through the story with his strong values where they relate to his daughter and the lengths he is willing to go to ensure she has the best life. No wonder Kate is willing to stick up for him and give him the additional help he needs. Kate is sassy, spirited and her own individual that shines. She is magnetic and others cannot help but to admire her, as well as, be drawn to her. Mika Jolie is a talented writer and her stories are always a reading pleasure and Rules of Engagement sits firmly in a must read category for romance lovers that enjoy a little bit of drama, with a dash of hot/sexy and a pinch of something tasty to go along with it!

Rules of Engagement: A Single Dad Romance, (Platonically Complicated Book 3) by Mika Jolie. I have read most of this author’s work and I can honestly say, I truly enjoyed them all and this book was no different.
This could be either a forbidden friends type of a book or even a best friends little sister book but either way it was a fabulous read. Lucas wants to focus on his life with his daughter but his ex wife is wanting to make things extremely difficult for him. When his best friends younger sister, Kate, who is also a great friend to him, comes up with a way to calm the bitter custody battle. She will become his “fake” fiancé. Sounds like an amazing plan….. except that Lucas has been having thoughts about Kate for a while now…. and Kate has always had a crush on Lucas. What could possibly go wrong, or right………. All I know is that this is definitely a must read!! You will fall in love!!

What a book. I love single dad romances, along with friends to lovers and this was both.
Lucas and Kate are close friends and when Lucas is in a custody battle , Kate steps in to do the unthinkable. As they set rules for this unexpected journey, they realize they’re guarding themselves but also secretly hoping to break every rule they make!
I was hooked from page one,and while this is book 3 it read as a standalone. I only wish we got kate’s POV in some scenes.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mika Jolie….nothing more is needed. I have NEVER read a book by her I haven’t loved. This is no different. The written was perfect, the characters were great and the story was 5+ stars!

I really couldn’t say anything bad about this book. Lucas has custody over his daughter Emma. She means the absolute world to him. He would do anything to keep things justbthe way they are. His ex wife is back and wants to take him to court for custody saying he’s an unfit parent and he has different women around him all the time.

His best friend’s sister who happens to be one of his best friends poses as his fake fiancé. The only problem is, Lucas is extremely attracted to Kate and she has started in some of his hottest fantasies over the last year. Since Kate and Lucas are so comfortable around each other, it’s easy to pretend. They even kiss in public to make it known. However, Kate’s brother isn’t to happy about this plan. Before long, Kate and Lucas are sending flirty texts and then Lucas sends Kate a picture he normally wouldn’t send someone. One thing leads to another and they end up making a deal of what they are willing to do during their fake engagement.

The only rule is, they cannot fall for each other. What are the chances of that happening between now and a week from now when Lucas has to go to court? I say very likely!!! Will this ruin their amazing friendship they have had for over two decades or will they both be able to get past it?
Such a great book!!!

I absolutely adored this story. I’ve been so lucky to read a few books by this author now and I love her writing style, she always manages to sweep me up in her stories and I can never put them down until I have finished.
I fell in love with Lucas straight away; he was just such a genuinely lovely person. He had clearly been hurt in the past but the devotion he showed to his daughter was admirable – it was clear just how much she meant to him. I loved that the story was written from Lucas’ point of view it was nice to see the male side for once.
It didn’t take me long to fall in love with Kate either – I really, really wanted the two of them to end up together – I thought that they were perfect! Although we didn’t get any POV chapters from Kate we did get the little input from her blog pieces which gave a little insight into her as a person.
I thought that this was a really, sweet story with wonderful characters. I 100% recommend it and can’t wait for more from this author again!
