The Billionaire Next Door by Jessica Lemmon $1,99
The Billionaire Next Door (Billionaire Bad Boys) - Jessica Lemmon

It's Tag Crane's job to be the life of the party. Traveling from one exotic locale to another is just part of running the luxurious Crane Hotel empire. But even paradise isn't perfect. Devising a new business strategy is keeping Tag up at night-and so is the Great Dane barking at all hours in the apartment below his. To muzzle the problem, Tag charges downstairs . . . right into the most beautiful, blond distraction he's ever seen.


Dog-sitting by day, bartending by night. It's not exactly the life Rachel Foster dreamed of. But when Tag Crane rushes in, all mountain-man shoulders and obscenely sexy smile, needing her help for the Crane Hotels, it's a fantasy come true. What's the harm in a fun no-strings fling? Only a fool would give her heart to a billionaire player like Tag-until suddenly the one man who can't be caught is the one flirting with forever . . .

Beauty and the Beastly Billionaire . . .

 

Eli Crane is one tough bastard. After an explosion left him injured and honorably discharged from the Marines, all he wants is to be left alone. Yet his brothers insist he take a greater role in the family business. They've hired him ten personal assistants—and Eli sent each one packing as fast as possible. But when beautiful number eleven walks through the door, Eli will do anything to make her stay.

 

Isabella Sawyer's employment agency can't afford to lose Eli Crane's business. Her plan: to personally take on the role of his PA, and secure her reputation with the wealthy elite in Chicago. But this beauty and her hot billionaire bad boy soon find themselves mixing business with pleasure in the most delicious ways. And passionate, stubborn Isabella won't rest until she tames this wicked beast . . .

Standing, she smoothed her hands down her pants and flipped her hair. She had planned to quietly finish her work and leave without seeing him again. No such luck. And no hiding that she was heading his way when her heels clicked along the concrete floor.

 

Well.

 

The kiss had happened. The button incident had happened. There was no taking it back. Regardless of how either of them felt about it, she was going to continue working here. So. She would deal with the here and now.

 

Since the sun was shining, Eli’s lair was welcome instead of foreboding. No fire cracked in the hearth today. Also unlike his usual, he wasn’t at his desk. He was at the printer.

 

This yours?” He offered a sheet of paper.

 

Yes.” She couldn’t keep from explaining. “Pressed the Print button by accident.”

 

Mi printer es su printer.”

 

Isa accepted the document and Eli sank his hands into his jeans pockets, his forearms flexing with the movement.

 

I wasn’t—”

 

I shouldn’t—” they said at the same time.

 

He pursed his lips and she looked at her shoes. “Go ahead.” She was going to say, I wasn’t offended when you kissed me, but now that she’d had a millisecond to think it through, maybe she should pretend the kiss hadn’t happened. Which was . . . impossible. Standing this close to him, it’s all she could think about.

 

I shouldn’t have ruined your shirt,” he said.

 

I dared you to.”

 

Why?” His eyebrows compressed along with his lips.

 

Because you have accepted the role of beast, but I don’t believe that’s who you are.” She let her gaze linger on his face before tracking down his body. “And because I like a challenge.”

 

Do you?” He took a wide step toward her.

 

She matched his move and took one step closer to him. “Yes. I don’t wilt easily.”

 

He threaded her hair between his fingers, a look of longing and hurt mingling in his eyes. “I was about to lie and say I shouldn’t have kissed you.”

 

Shivers climbed her spine as she remembered how firm his lips felt against hers. “Maybe . . . you shouldn’t have stopped.”

 

 

 

 

 

The Bastard Billionaire (Billionaire Bad Boys Book 3)The Bastard Billionaire by Jessica Lemmon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.

TOP 5 FAVORITE LINES FROM TBB:

 

#5~ Isabella Sawyer’s smart-aleck remark when Eli fires her for the umpteenth time:

Apologies, Eli, but I’m not changing my shoes.” She came into his office, her hips swaying with each sure step she took toward him.

Fine. Then you’re fired.”

Oh, no, not again.”

 

#4~ Merina, the heroine from The Bastard Billionaire shows up as yet another feisty woman who refuses to bow to Eli’s gruffness.

 

I can go out into public, you know,” he grumbled, setting the beer bottle next to his plate—on the table, no coaster, thank you very much. “You guys don’t have to come in here and serve me.”

He was skilled at his new role of miserable bastard, and since everyone expected it now, he was determined to excel.

Oh but we do, Lord Crane.” Merina smiled demurely as she leaned over and handed him a glass.

 

#3~ I loved this line after Eli and Isa had sex—his honesty cracked me up!

 

I like this.” She touched the corner of his mouth. “I’ve been trying to get you to smile since I started working here.”

Well now you know how to do it.”

 

 

#2~ Bold Isabella knows how to ask for what she wants!

 

Is kissing you in my marching orders for tomorrow night?” he asked, his eyes picking up a trace of heat.

She wasn’t going to pass up this opportunity. No way. No how.

Yes,” she answered. “Need to practice?”

 

 

#1~ Eli’s worry that he didn’t have what it took is my favorite line in the book.

 

He’d done what he needed to be a good soldier.

Now that he wasn’t a soldier, he wasn’t sure what it took to be a good man.

Charlotte AKA Charlie has known Evan for almost twenty years.  She has been in love with him the whole time.  He was married to her best friend, until tragedy struck.

 

Evan and his son are devastated by losing their wife and mother.  It is time for a change.  He moves them to where they will make new memories and still have a support system.  Little does he know, what he needed was there all along.

 

Such a terrific start to the Second Chance series.  Such amazingly fun characters with excellent banter and really HOT sexy times.  I laughed, cried, and cheered out loud reading this one.  I cannot wait to read the next book!  I give this story a 5/5 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.
