Falling
Going Down Hard - Carly Phillips

This is book #3, in the Billionaire Bad Boys series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Derek and Cassie have a kind of awkward history.  While their families can be a touchy subject, they are getting to know one another again.  Derek is ll grown up and hot enough to set Cassie aflame.

 

Cassie has enough problems on her plate by her own family right now.  Derek is just an added element that may or may not ruin her plans.  Now if they can compromise, there just might be a future ahead.

 

I know I always love books by this author, she is on my go to purchase list.  This story however, I was just not feeling it.  The banter almost felt forced.  The chemistry is obvious but there was so much that distracted.... I don't know.  This is just my humble opinion.  I can honestly only give it a 2/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

The Bastard Billionaire (Billionaire Bad Boys) - Jessica Lemmon

This is the 3rd book in the Billionaire Bad Boys series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding and enjoyment, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Elijah AKA Eli meets Isabella AKA Isa (or Sable) when she comes to work for him as his assistant.  He has fired and sent away all the others she has tried to get him to work with.  A battle torn veteran, he has lost more than his leg.

 

Isa puts up with a lot of attitude from Eli so she can build up her business.  She decides to put herself in as the temporary employee.  The sparks star flying from the moment they meet.

 

This series is always full of heat, hot men, and surprises.  This story fits in very well.  We get to see more of our favorite characters from previous books as also.  Such a fun read.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Great Story and Characters
The Bastard Billionaire (Billionaire Bad Boys) - Jessica Lemmon

Elijah/Eli had run off nine temporary assistants his brother Reese had sent over to him. Eli had been a marine and was now an amputee Eli had no interest in stepping in as Chief Operations Officer for crane hotels that his family owned and worked at. Eli felt wherever he went bad things happened. Since he came back to the states and had recovered Eli was consumed with giving back, changing the lives of men and women who made sacrifices for their country and their families. Isabella/Isa really didn’t have any more people to send to Eli so she decided she would go herself and act like the agency  Isa’s business- Merina was Reese’s wife and had suggested Isa company to have a temporary assistant to help Eli transition from Marine to Crane Hotel COO. The assistant job was to help Eli with Crane Hotel conference calls , answer and forward emails, and tend to light load work Reese had handed down to Eli to oversee. Eli had refused it all. As far as Isa was concerned Eli could ruin his own life but not her company. Isa was willing to do whatever it took to make her business successful. Eli realized he was lonely with so much love around him with his family and their loved ones. Since Eli had been back he had been tended to, coddled, and overly cared for. He had worked hard to get himself up and moving so he was dependent on none. Isa had walked away from her family’s money, expectations and they man they had chosen for her. Isa felt attraction for Eli but she knew better than to follow it as she had twice before to bad results not going to happen a third time with her business involved. Isa had started her business in her living room three years ago. Isa had started out with one employee - herself now she had thirty two employees. Isa had worked almost ten years for her parents financial firm starting at eighteen. Isa had been a good PA but Isa didn’t want to run her parents business so she broke away. Eli was also attracted to her. Then they shared a kiss. Eli had fired Isa several times she just never listened to him. Then Isa couldn’t find a date for her parents celebration of naming Josh- Isa’s ex - as president of their company. Eli asks Isa help him get his webpage started for the vets charity and he agrees to be her date. On the was Isa admits she owns her company and doesn’t just work there and that it was her parents celebration and Josh was her ex. But Eli didn’t care. Josh knew eventually he would work to getting a female in his bed again but that was the largest challenge he had to conquer. I loved this story. I loved how all Eli’s family gathers around him no matter how grumpy he is. I also liked how Isa stuck with the job no matter what. I also liked how she was with Eli when they went into a personal relationship. This was a great plot and I also loved the problems a lot our returning vets face when coming home injured. This was just an all around great story with a message which is the best kind. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend.

Happily Ever Alpha: Falling for the Billionaire
Happily Ever Alpha: Falling for the Billionaire - Victoria Pinder,Jina Bacarr,Opal Carew,Eileen Cruz Coleman,Margo Bond Collins,Rossie Cortes,Tara Crescent,Michele de Winton,Blaire Edens,Nicole Garcia,Erin Hayes,Courtney Hunt,Mary Hughes,Sydney Logan,Alix Nichols,Tierney O'Malley,Peter Presley,Mandy I love anthologies. For me these collections give me the chance to test out and discover authors that I've not had experience reading. So Happily Ever Alpha served a dual purpose for me. Reading great stories and trying out a smorgasbord of new authors. It would be so easy for me to break down all twenty authors and their stories, but I just don't have the time. From mysterious, to pompous, from adorable to frustrating and everything in between these authors rocked it. The take away for me is that these alpha men still had a few things to learn. Love is not a weakness, but a force to be reckoned with. Message received and lesson learned. HOT READS COMING THROUGH!

Step Beast
Step Beast: (Military Bad Boy BBW BDSM Billionaire Stepbrother Romance) - Selena Kitt

Great read, great read ... bottom line this was a great read with characters and situations that kept me on the edge of my seat or checking over my shoulder to make sure that no one was watching the drool drip down my chin.

 

Let's start with the characters, Beast is a feast for readers who love that strong, silent, let's get it done type of guy. Character isn't too complicated but he is a joy to read. Tilly is sheltered, trapped, low self confidence and eager to please. At times was contrary just to be contrary and this can work a readers nerves. Were the two leading characters a good match? Well, yes absolutely! In this wasn't a need for two alpha characters. Now, secondary characters were just as appealing as the main characters. There is Liv the over controlling society mom who I swore had a thing for her stepson (Beast). As the reader, I wanted to jump through the pages and smack mommy Liv a good one. Even by the end of the book when everything is made right and forgiven; I was ready to forgive this chick. The dynamic between these three characters (Beast, Tilly and Liv) is just awesome and really pull the reader in. Then there is aunt Meg and her partner Kate who takes part in making Tilly's life hell. Image your mom steals your baby, gives the baby to your aunt without your knowledge and your aunt parades the baby around as her newly adopted son. That's a tail whippin' as far as I'm concerned. Lastly, let's not for the self centered best friend who believes she's the best thing walking.

 

Now, this story seemed to be two separate stories meshed together. Where the home life and the action sequences never really connected. I don't know if the secondary plot is really needed considering the stuff with the family was so darn juicy on its own. Regardless, I couldn't put it down.
