The Wicked Billionaire: A Billionaire SEAL Romance (The Tate Brothers) - Jackie Ashenden

This is book #2, in the Tate Brothers series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this amazing series in order.

 

Lucas wants to keep Grace safe.  If there is anyone who can do this, he can.  Since they already have a history of tragedy between them he feels it prudent to keep his distance from her emotionally.

 

Grace knows that Lucas the means and training to keep her safe physically.  What about her heart?  She has already known tragedy and loss.  Is it wise to find herself attracted to the same type of man again?

 

This book moves at a fast pace.  I like the growing tension and how it is laid out.  The characters clash and the temperature rises.  Makes for a sexy slow burn, but they belong together.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

The Wicked Billionaire
The Wicked Billionaire - Jackie Ashenden The Wicked Billionaire - Jackie Ashenden Lucas is a Navy SEAL sniper that relies on the focus and control that is needed to do his job. Always applying it in every way possible. So much so that he never feels anything too strongly. Grace is the widow of a deceased member of Lucas SEAL team. Grace spots Lucas and calls him on protecting her. A sexy tale that has both pushing their boundaries and changing what they know.

Ashenden is an amazing author and most certainly knows the art of telling an erotic romance. Fans of the genre will fall in love with this book. It may very well be part of a series, but it can be read as s stand-alone novel. This author has just made it on my must read list!

Fantastic!!
The Wicked Billionaire: A Billionaire SEAL Romance (The Tate Brothers) - Jackie Ashenden

Every time I think, no more billionaire stories, along comes one that is so well done I have to eat my words.  The Wicked Billionaire by Jackie Ashenden is one of those eat your words books.  Ms Ashenden has given us a book that is well-written.  The characters in this book are absolutely phenomenal.  A perfect fit for this book.  Lucas and Grace's story is loaded with suspense, humor, drama and smokin' hot sexy bits.  This book hooked me at page one and kept me wrapped up in it till the last page.  I loved The Wicked Billionaire and look forward to reading more from Jackie Ashenden in the future.  The Wicked Billionaire is book 2 of the Tate Brothers 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 Bad Boy Billionaire's Wicked Arrangement by Maya Rodale Review
The Bad Boy Billionaire's Wicked Arrangement - Maya Rodale

 

Jane Sparks has accidentally announced her engagement on Facebook—to the infamous Bad Boy Billionaire, Duke Austen. As soon as it's discovered that Jane and Duke barely know each other (one hot kiss at a party does not a relationship make), she'll be completely humiliated. And then Duke does something Jane never expected: He plays along with her charade.

 

With his hard-partying playboy reputation jeopardizing a 150-million-dollar investment deal, Duke realizes an engagement with the sexy but oh-so-proper librarian could be just the thing to repair his reputation. This good girl tempts him to be very wicked … but only with her. It's unprecedented. Inconceivable. Totally alluring.

 

As the unlikely match of librarian and tech entrepreneur set out to convince the world—and the internet—that their love is real, something unexpected happens: They start falling for each other. But Jane is secretly writing a historical romance novel that could expose their carefully constructed romance … unless two perfect strangers are content to be perfectly scandalous together.

 

 

 

Review 

 

Lots of people picked this one up when it was freebie but I paid full price of it. If I had read it for free, maybe I would be less ticked off, but I would still be massively irritated by this book.

 

Some of my ire comes from the fact that I don't really love series that follow the same couple. I misread the blurb and that is on me. However, when a series does follow the same couple, I want and HEA or HFN with each book.

 

This novella is just series bait. I loathe series bait. And I really hate paying good money for what is basically and ad for the rest of the series.

 

I have seen a lot of good buzz on Maya Rodale and thought that this novella would be a good introduction.

 

I love geeky heroines and librarians rock. Her sideline as a Romance Novels isn't so appealing which again is on me because clearly the whole series will focus on that aspect of her character.

 

I felt given the heroine's personality and even with her desire to change the sex happened way to early in this book and didn't seem to arise out of the characters.

 

Only getting the heroine's point of view was a really downfall as well. The hero comes off a callous. I have no idea why she would be in to him.

 

And then...the end. Bleh. He never gets a chance to show her his love in this novella. So. Yuck.

 

I don't think shall read on.
