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.

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.

The Billionaire’s Favorite Mistake (Billionaires and Bridesmaids #4) by Jessica Clare
The Billionaire's Favorite Mistake (Billionaires And Bridesmaids Book 4) - Jessica Clare

Greer has always been there for Asher, but she wishes she could break through her shyness and show how much she truly loves him. But after a steamy, mindless fling at Hunter and Gretchen’s engagement party, Greer finds herself tossed aside and forced to admit that you can’t love someone who doesn’t acknowledge you exist.

It’s a shame he got her pregnant.

After his fiancée betrayed him and tanked his business in one fell swoop, Asher has spent his time trying to rebuild his wealth and forget the past. But he doesn’t understand why Greer blew him off after their night together—until he catches a glimpse of her belly.

Now Asher is willing to do whatever it takes to convince Greer she belongs with him. And he’s very skilled at the art of persuasion.

 

 

 

 

My Review:

This installment of the Billionaires series didn't quite win me over as much as I'd hoped that it would. There was a lot of potential in this book with the past relationship and the baby angle but neither Greer nor Asher really won me over, and the back and forth over how to handle their relationship and resolving the issues surrounding how to deal with their child really kind of bogged the whole story down because neither character really convinced me that they were right for the role so to speak. The book was slow, the characters didn't really develop or go anywhere and the ending wasn't something that fulfilled me either. The book was okay but wasn't enough to win me over.
