Awesome!!
Deal Breaker: Billionaire Bosses - Tara ... Deal Breaker: Billionaire Bosses - Tara Leigh

Deal Breaker by Tara Leigh is a fantastic read.  Ms Leigh has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are amazing and my favorite part of the book.  Nash is a self-made billionaire and part-time boxer.  Nixie is an art student in hiding from her ex.  After Nash rescues Nixie from a couple of thugs in an ally, things get interesting.  There's plenty of drama, humor, action and suspense along with a bit of sizzle that kept me focused on my kindle from page one to the end.  I totally enjoyed reading Deal Breaker and look forward to reading more from Tara Leigh in the future.  Deal Breaker is book 2 of the Billionaire Bosses Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

The Billionaire's Ex - Wife (The Jameson Brothers) by Leslie North
The Billionaire's Ex -Wife - Leslie North

 

Sam is a piece of work. He's arrogant, clueless and in need of some fixing in the emotion department. Trinity is no pushover and she has neither the patience or the heart to put up with a jerk like Sam. Too bad she's about to come face to face with the one man she hoped to never see again. Her ex-husband: Sam Jameson. Will this surprise meeting lead to a new beginning? The Billionaire's Ex - Wife brings on the spice and sprinkles in the heart. Life is a journey of mistakes, pain and letting go, but there's always room for a second chance.

Time travel has issues
IMMORTAL BILLIONAIRE- PB - Jane Godman

Not a bad read, it did keep me reading and wondering what was going on but the time travel aspect didn't work for me.

 

Spoilers abound and I will try to keep them under wraps to a degree but I can't talk about the problems without them.

 

Connie Lacey copes with the trauma of being cut up and watching her mother being killed in front of her and being stalked and taunted by her stalker by running. Now she's offered an opportunity to go to to the Island Corazon to a family gathering, a family she knows very little about, and to have a month away from her cares, she hopes.  When she gets there she starts to feel like the place is familiar, is very attracted to the island's owner, Sylvester, but things start to go wrong and suddenly the past is catching up with the present.  She knows some of the people here but some of the others are strangers.

 

They all get trapped and then bodies start to accumulate. 

 

It's the lovechild of Ten little Niggers /Ten little Indians /Then there were none and The Time Traveller's Wife and/or Outlander, with bonus reincarnation, and ghosts!  If it was me I'd be inclined to be a little less passive, but she's not me.  

 

The spoilery stuff:

Basically he has been immortal in order to send himself back in time to found his own dynasty and the people who were on the island, but she travels back too, and if she does that he ages and she disappears from continuity, so she could never have been born if he wasn't immortal and he stops being immortal when she returns to him and my brain almost exploded from how messed up it all was.

 And again with people who are vaguely immortal or long-lived he doesn't show the smarts he should from a long life, it's one of my bugbears with long-lived characters where stupid will probably get you killed.

(spoiler show)

 

 

Falls into ghosts, supernatural, Country House Mystery, murder most foul, romantic suspense, serial/spree killer, probably gothic, haunted houses (basically the island is haunted); monsters, terrifying women.  I'm going to use Haunted Houses, edited because I discovered I'd used ghosts.

Release Day ARC Review: The Bunny And The Billionaire by Louisa Masters
The Bunny and the Billionaire (Dreamspun Desires Book 43) - Louisa Masters

This is such a Harlequin-esque book. I mean, seriously, this one lays it on super thick, and as such fits the Dreamspun Desires series to a T.

Here we have Ben Adams, a nurse from Australia, who recently inherited a large sum of money (and when I say large, I mean LARGE) from the old lady whom he looked after for some time, and whom he still misses. Never having known wealth, Ben decides on a tour of Europe but still counting his pennies and saving money where possible. 

While in Monaco, he meets Leo Artois, the billionaire from the book's title, who's never known a day without wealth, seeing how his mother is a princess and his father is not only fabulously wealthy but also almost French royalty or something of the sort. 

Why Leo insists on calling Ben Bunny all the time escaped me. Leo, as well as his circle of friends, come across as the sort of people who never had to work a day in their lives and who think nothing of spending money whenever they please. 

Ben only planned to stay in Monaco for a few days before heading to Italy, but after meeting Leo, and the instant attraction he feels for the man, he decides to stay a while longer. 

What I liked about this book is that Ben isn't shy about pointing out to Leo how wasteful spending isn't impressive to him, and that Leo make concessions for Ben's point of view on money issues, but also teaches him that some things are worth the money they cost and introduces him to some of the finer things in life that most mortals will never be able to afford. 

Ben, despite his substantial inheritance, is still a normal guy and tries to impress that normalcy on Leo. 

I believed their holiday fling. Their attraction burned brightly from the start, and I bought that Leo was fascinated with Ben, and vice versa, but their HEA romance - nah. Didn't believe it. They had so little in common, and despite Ben's new wealth, their social circles and life experiences didn't really mesh for me at all. Ben was too normal whereas Leo was way more sophisticated and often came across as someone whose illusions of entitlement were showing. Ben came across as uncomfortable with the OTT displays of wealth Leo and his circle found normal, and that doesn't make for a life-long romance. I mean, obviously with this series, disbelief must be suspended most of the time anyway, but the romance should still be something that resonates. And here, it sadly didn't, for me. YMMV.

The writing was pretty good; the dialogue was believable (with some snark, yay) for how the two men were characterized, and I'm interested in reading more by this author.
