ARC Review: BEDDING THE BILLIONAIRE by London Hale

November 16, 2017

Bedding the Billionaire by London Hale
She thinks they’re a mistake.

I've spent my whole life working toward my goals, being the best I can be at my job. Arrogant, persistent, pain in the skirt billionaire Colin Huntley isn't going to change that, even if he is the hottest man I've ever had the pleasure of working with. And pleasure is definitely something the man can deliver, without question. Our single, mind blowing night together was a mistake, though. A one-night stand brought on by a lapse in judgment. One I won't make again, so long as I stay strong as he starts his chase. Because when Colin decides he wants something, he gets it. And he's decided he wants me.

He always gets what he wants.

Sloane McLaren may be the best VP I’ve ever had, but she taunts me every day in her tight little skirts and her librarian-fantasy glasses. Especially since that night. The one when I had her in my bed, in my shower, bent over my kitchen counter. I thought we were finally on the same page...until I woke up to cold sheets and an empty bed. She may assume it’s business as usual in the office, but I didn’t build my billion-dollar company on assumptions. I want her back in my bed, and I’m willing to play dirty to get her there.

Length - 318 pages

THE PRINCE OF PARK AVENUE FINALLY MEETS HIS MATCH IN A FEISTY MANHATTAN PRINCESS.

I’ve made every one of my billions of dollars myself—I’m calculating, astute and the best at what I do. It takes drive and dedication to build what I have. And it leaves no time for love or girlfriends or relationships.

But don’t get me wrong, I’m not a monk.

I understand the attention and focus it takes to seduce a beautiful woman. They’re the same skills I use to close business deals. But one night is where it begins and ends. I’m not the guy who sends flowers. I’m not the guy who calls the next day.

Or so I thought before an impatient, smart-talking, beyond beautiful heiress bursts into my world.

When Grace Astor rolls her eyes at me—I want to hold her against me and show her what she’s been missing.

When she makes a joke at my expense—I want to silence her sassy mouth with my tongue.

And when she leaves straight after we f*ck with barely a goodbye—it makes me want to pin her down and remind her of the three orgasms she just had.

She might be a princess but I’m going to show her who rules in this Park Avenue bedroom.

Passion burns fiercely hot between Ella Ferguson and Kayden Wilkens, the man who held secrets and lies in his hands, and then allowed them to fall into hers.

Kayden still has secrets, and pieces of Ella's past are still shrouded in the darkness of her mind, while the powerful man who hunts her will not stop until she is his. In this final, explosive novel in the Careless Whispers series, Ella discovers that while her life with Kayden didn't begin in that dark alley...it could easily end there.

Chris and Sara from Inside Out return in the explosive finale to Ella's story from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones with the third book in the sexy, suspenseful Careless Whispers series.

MY REVIEW

This was my favorite episode of the series. I think it's because this was the book that offered the most depth. Although I admired Emma's perseverance, she lost points because she seemed to lack understanding or patience with Caleb's illness. It was all about her and her needs and her timetable. Thankfully Caleb evened out the scale with his compassion and willingness to try. The ending was too abrupt for my liking but overall it was a fine conclusion to the series.

MY REVIEW

Episode Three started off right where #2 ended: with Caleb and Emma as committed as ever and excited for their future, with their growing new addition. It was sensual, lovey-dovey goodness. Then something unpredictable happens and the bubble bursts. Still well-written and fast-paced. And the entire time I was reading this I was hoping for Caleb's POV. No such luck, which irked me because Emma was becoming more annoying :(

Review of book 1, Tell Me a Story

Emma and Caleb spend nearly all their free time enjoying each other sensually, but she wonders how permanent their relationship will be.

Emma's beloved Orlando bookstore is saved, thanks to Caleb's quick actions. She's caught up in a dizzying whirl of work and play, between her business, his palatial condo and the romantic getaways her handsome real estate mogul plans. But her 35th birthday brings not only sweet gifts, but the bitter realization that if she's going to have a family, it has to be now. She wants forever, but what about Caleb?

Caleb is in love for the first time in his life, and he can't do enough for his raven-haired temptress. He's happy living in the now, showering her with gifts to make up for her childhood, spent in poverty. But when Emma brings up the future, it becomes clear that she's not the only one with a past that can rear up and threaten their happiness. Despite all the daring exploration he persuades her into, marriage may just be his hard limit. Will he find a way past his darkest fears?

Length: 193 pages

Emma, a free-spirited bookstore owner in Orlando, keeps her business afloat with innovative ideas. Her most popular evening event is Story Brothel, where customers can pay writers to read aloud to them in a story-time for two, complete with cocktails. Despite the name, the event is usually tame. But things take a steamy turn when a handsome, urbane businessman hires Emma for a session in a private cabana. Daringly, she shares with him a reading of her erotica. Soon both of them are feeling the effects ... and Emma's wondering what kind of lover is underneath his expensive suit.

Caleb may be a billionaire real estate mogul, but he's never been captivated by a woman as he is by the lovely, quirky Emma. Her rockabilly vintage dresses make him long to strip them off and do very wicked things to her. And her refusal to share her personal life only makes him more curious.

Soon the couple are spending every available moment together. But Emma's building is in danger of being razed out from under her bookstore ... and worse, Caleb may be behind her problems. Can she trust him with her life as she does with her body? Or will the prickly walls built during her harsh past keep them apart?

Standalone - Blackstone Dynasty #1
Release: November 15, 2016
Length: 306 pages

Billionaire Caleb Blackstone lives in the glamorous world of wealth and success, with every material luxury. But the moment he sees Brooke Casterley, none of that matters. Caleb is filled with a raw, undeniable need that he can’t ignore…for a girl who is so completely different from everything and everyone he’s ever known.

Only Brooke isn’t looking for love. She knows all too well just how much damage the wrong guy can do. Still, what sane, broke British girl can resist the charms of an incredibly sexy, chivalrous billionaire? What starts as flirtation quickly turns into all-consuming passion. Nothing could have prepared her for the searing heat of Caleb’s touch—or just how much she craves him.

Their whirlwind romance is the stuff of high-society fantasy—but for every moment of pleasure, there is a cost. Past mistakes and tragedy shadow them both…and falling for him might be the kind of trouble she can’t afford.
