Dirty Money (Roughneck Billionaires #1) by Jessica Clare

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Boone Price and his brothers know oil; at least, the dirty, backbreaking side of working an oil rig. But when their scrubby, worthless hunting land turns out to be sitting on top of one of the biggest oil wells in North America, they go from the rig to the boardroom and end up billionaires practically overnight.

Now with enough money to do whatever he wants, Boone is developing a taste for fine things. And the finest thing he's ever seen is Ivy Smithfield, local realtor. Boone's determined to buy her affection and show the world that he's more than just a dirty fool with a bit of money. Ivy's classy and beautiful - she'll make the perfect trophy wife. The fact that she's sexy and funny is just a bonus.

There's one tiny problem - Ivy's as dirt poor as Boone is. Her carefully crafted veneer of luxury? All an act to promote her business. What's Boone going to do when he finds out the woman he's falling for is, well, in his league?

 

 

 

I don't really understand this portrayal of "tough guys" as assholes to the women they're attracted to or how its supposed to be alluring but personally its rather off putting to me personally as a woman. The whole chauvinistic I'm he man you're woman do my bidding - watch me swagger thing does nothing for me right now. Its too much too heavy and doesn't give any romance vibe between Ivy and Boone. 

He's so into himself that its hard to see that he can even see Ivy at all beyond his own reflection. Its off putting. Neither of the few intimacy scenes make up for it.

While the story itself is decent I just didn't care for them as a couple. Too opposites to make an attract.

Beauty and the Billionaire: The Wedding (Billionaire Boys Club #6.5) by Jessica Clare
Beauty and the Billionaire: The Wedding (Billionaire Boys Club) - Jessica Clare

Someone's out to ruin Gretchen's happy-ever-after on the eve before the big day. Can she trust Hunter, the man she's given her heart to?

 

And can she rely on her sister Daphne (the least reliable person of all!) to help her salvage things? Or is this marriage going to go down in flames before Gretchen and Hunter ever get to the altar?

Includes a sneak peek of Dirty Money, first in Clare’s brand new Roughneck Billionaires series.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think this novella would have been just as good if Clare had inserted it into a full novel seeing as how short it is. Keep in mind this is a novella having to do with Hunter and Gretchen's wedding (as titled) Hunter is still doing right by his girl while she is still slaving to prove herself (mostly to herself) that she's a worthy partner of Hunter and not one of those typical girls who lives off her man who happens to be a billionaire.

Granted most of it is all in her head but I had been hoping that it would be more romantic than it came off.

The Wedding was still sweet and I liked it but I felt there could have been a little more personal emotions and intimacy involved.

Beauty and the Billionaire: The Wedding (Billionaire Boys Club)
Beauty and the Billionaire: The Wedding (Billionaire Boys Club) - Jessica Clare Christmas is supposed to be about faith, hope and charity, not chaos, secrets and blackmail. Ms. Clare manages to sprinkle in a little bit of each along with a whole lot of love, a great deal of mischief and a dab of forgiveness. Gretchen and Hunter's wedding is shaping up to be the event of the season. If the bride and groom manage to make it down the aisle. The Billionaires Boys Club series although sugary is full of optimism, life lessons and heartwarming moments that culminate in love. Beauty and the Billionaire: The Wedding puts the finishing touches on an adorable saga of family and friends and the strong bond they share. It proves family begins in the heart not the bloodlines. A winner.

Review: Billionaire on the Loose
Billionaire on the Loose - Jessica Clare

Billionaire on the Loose (Billionaires and Bridesmaids #5) Jessica Clare is a fluffy and fun romance that will make you chuckle because of the actions of the heroine and the hero who are the least likely of people to fall in love. How can you not enjoy a nerdy, techie computer obsessed heroine, and a dashing prince from a far off land who falls head first in lust with the heroine just because she’s unlike any women he knows, and a true original?

 

Taylor is pretty much a hermit in her apartment. She is a remote IT person who loves playing on-line role games. Because she became too involved in this virtual reality, she has picked up an admirer who is now stalking her, and going as far as to threatening to kill himself if Taylor isn’t on-line all the time talking with him. Instead of contacting the authorities or blocking him, mainly because of guilt, she gives in to him, almost making her lose her job and her sanity. But as this is all going on, one of her girl friends asks for a favor. This guy Loch from out of town needs a tour guide. Taylor accepts because she realizes she needs to take a break from the computer. An added bonus is that Loch is very handsome, friendly and has a sweet accent. They hit it off right away even though their personalities are as different as night and day.

 

Loch has come to the US, where it’s expected he’ll stay for 2-3 years. He’s an actual prince who live a playboy lifestyle of luxury because he’s worth billionaires. He’s pretty bored with life in general, until he meets Taylor. He thinks she’s adorable, and he loves hanging out with her. Soon his life changes to lust, and he wants her in his bed. Taylor jumps at the chance with Loch and soon they are having a very hot and heavy sexual affair. Taylor still has to be on guard because her obsessed on-line suitor is watching, and may go off the deep end if he finds out about Loch. But then Taylor is in a bad accident.

 

Loch wants to help her recover, installing her in a fancy hotel room that is easy for him to pay for because of his fortune, which Taylor doesn’t know about. She has no idea he’s a prince, and the sudden idea he has to keep Taylor close, as well as letting him go home.

Billionaire on Loose is the type of romance that will make you smile. I loved the opposites attracting trope between Loch and Taylor, and it worked extremely well here because of the way Jessica has written these two characters. They’re both so lovable and easy going, even with Taylor’s seemingly dangerous stalker. As for that plot, it falters toward the end, especially when we find out who he is and why he has targeted Taylor. I didn’t buy it or the reason Taylor let it go on for so long, and didn’t contact the authorities. She became very worried that this individual may hurt her, or go off the deep end. Loch figures things out pretty quickly, unlike Taylor who is given the shock of her life about who Loch really is and what his plans are for her. Its deceitful and may make you change your mind about Loch, but it’s something that has been done in romance before. The groveling or forgiveness factor from Taylor is stereotypical, and allows for a satisfactory HEA.

 

The sex here is borderline erotic. A few times my eyebrows darted up because of how aggressive Taylor is from what she wants from Loch. These two have some major naked fun times together, especially during one of the virtual reality computer game conferences Taylor takes Lock to. They end up in a room that looks like a forest and end up having some risqué lovemaking on a mushroom. You have to read it in order to believe it. We’re talking R-Rated here.

 

Billionaire on the Loose is the type of book that will brighten you day if you’re looking for some fun time reading. The gamer chick heroine and her sexual hijinks with her Prince Charming makes for a good time.

Billionaire on the Loose
Billionaire on the Loose - Jessica Clare I am new to the world of Jessica Clare, but if all her stories are as endearing as Taylor and Loch's I just might stick around awhile. Billionaire On the Loose touches the heart with it's message of acceptance and spins dreams for every believer in happily ever afters. You don't have to be perfect to find happiness is an inspiring message that has fallen by the wayside in the world of glamorous movie stars and glitzy magazines. For that alone this story deserves an A +.

I must admit I went into the story, not liking Loch's stuffy ways and Taylor at times could be hard to take. However the charm of the story was the differences in the main characters and the positive effects they had on each other. With Billionaire on the Loose, Ms. Clare brought the beauty of fairy tales to modern readers.
