Once Upon a Billionaire (Billionaire Boys Club, #4)Once Upon a Billionaire by Jessica Clare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once Upon a Billionaire is book four of the Billionaire Boys Club series.

This book is about Griffin Verdi one of the six billionaires in the secret society. He has been required to return to his home country where he is part of the royal family for a cousin’s wedding. He needed a temporary assistant for the trip and Hunter offered him the services of his own PA, Maylee.

Maylee Meriweather was a sweet southern girl from Arkansas. She had moved to New York City to work so that she could help her family back home. She is adorable. She has such southern colloquialisms that she uses and it absolutely drives Griffin crazy. He works very hard to change her so that she will not embarrass him or herself while in the presence of his family.

This book really does have a lot of heart. Maylee feels the underlying tension in Griffin when he is around his family. Griffin has spent most of his life avoiding showing his emotions so he is making Maylee feel uncomfortable.

The words and terms that she uses made me laugh so much. I am a southern woman myself and I recognized her phrases. Griffin did not at first find it endearing or even proper English. He keeps calling her out on her speech and it is hilarious.

There are so many side stories going on with Griffin, Gretchen and Maylee that make this book just a real joy to read. I have loved each story so far and this one was just so funny it was easy to love. This is an awesome series and I will be continuing all the way through to the sixth book.

Happily on to book five.

The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed by Jessica Clare

The Wrong Billionaire's Bed (Billionaire Boys Club, #3)The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed by Jessica Clare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was the third book in the Billionaire Boys Club series and it was just as wonderful as the preceding books. I can totally see why these men were all friends in college and formed a secret society. They all have over the top personalities. Winners in their business world and strong personalities.

This book was about Reese Durham. He was considered the playboy of the group Since he is introduced at the beginning in the hot tub with a socialite, it made sense. That is how Audrey Petty first stumbled upon Reese after reaching Cade Archer’s cabin with her twin sister. Audrey and Daphne Petty had expected to be alone at the cabin with Cade to help Daphne detox and get a hold of her addictions. We met Daphne in the last book when she wrecked Hunter and Gretchen’s party.

Audrey and Reese are not getting along at first because Reese suspects that she has a crush on Cade. He finds himself drawn to her, because he senses her fiery personality right below the surface. He hilariously draws her out of her comfort zone and she lights up when he succeeds. Those make some great scenes. She is very fiery.

There are so many fun aspects to this story. They both are at odds with what they feel and that keeps causing rifts in their fling. There are also some deeper subjects that are covered in this book in a compassionate and emotional way. It is an excellent book. This is a series that keeps getting better each book.

Beauty and the Billionaire by Jessica Clare

Beauty and the Billionaire (Billionaire Boys Club, #2)Beauty and the Billionaire by Jessica Clare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book 2 of the Billionaire Boys Club series
Hunter Buchanan was a member of the Billionaire’s secret club along with five other of his college friends. He had been badly scarred sometime earlier in life and was a secretive hidden man. He had seen Gretchen Petty in New York City and had thought of a way to get to know more about her. She was the sister to Logan’s PA, Ashley Petty. So he gained a little bit of information from Ashley then he set about to get her closer to him.

Hunter was obviously hurt for most of his life and he was hesitant to make actual contact with Gretchen. He never expected to have feelings for her or to actually have a relationship with her. He only wanted to get to know her and hopefully make a friend. He needed a friend.

I loved everything about Hunter. He was so insecure and he wanted so much to be loved. He lacked trust. He was so afraid of the disgust he always saw in people’s faces. I wanted Hunter to have happiness and love. He was so innocent in so many ways. Hunter worked off his stress with his roses. He had such sweet ways.

Gretchen was a funny ghost writer that wrote books that she absolutely hated. She lived from paycheck to paycheck and even worked under the counter at the local coffee shop to make ends meet. When an opportunity to make a huge amount of money while writing a book based on notes that had been found in the Buchanan Mansion. She couldn’t resist this chance to write something beside astronaut fiction.

When she first meets Hunter, he was not expecting her outside his shower, while he was naked. She noticed everything about him including his facial scars. It was hilarious when she tried to apologize. Greatest awkward conversation I have ever read.

While she lived in his house she was funny and happy and devilish. She really made me laugh. Could she make Hunter laugh? She wanted to so badly. She wanted to give so much to him, everything he had missed out on.

This book filled my heart with utter love. It was a beautiful read that made me stay with the book when I should be sleeping. I just could not walk away from Hunter and Gretchen. It is a book that I would invite everyone to read. It is just that good.

Stranded with a Billionaire by Jessica Clare

Stranded with a Billionaire (Billionaire Boys Club, #1)Stranded with a Billionaire by Jessica Clare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read Stranded with a Billionaire which is the first book in the Billionaire Boys Club,and I found it very entertaining. From the very beginning as Bronte Dawson was cursing her bad luck at being stranded in an elevator during a hurricane. Her elevator mate is a handsome man that she assumes is the manager of the hotel. So much for the perfect vacation she won. She was a waitress from the mid west and this was supposed to be the end all be all vacation. This evacuation of the hotel was not doing it for her.

The Manager, Logan Hawkings was really good looking yet rather distant at first. Bronte did not like his customer service skills at all. While they were stuck in the empty hotel they realized that they did have quite the chemistry. Soon they talk themselves into an abandoned island fling.

When Bronte finds out days later that he is not the manager, but a billionaire that owns the island, she is thrown for a loop. She is not sure how she feels about this and she runs away.

This begins a chase that covers several cities. Once Logan finds her he needs a way to contact her. After all that, Bronte has to work through her mistrust of him and decides to see if they can find a common ground. There are many funny moments during this book. Bronte did bring out the humor in Logan with her philosophy sayings and ancient quotes.

The frustration that Bronte and Logan faced while trying to find this common ground was strong for them both. She did not exactly want to end up like Danica (Logan’s ex) had helpfully explained to Bronte what Logan looked for in a woman. Which made Bronte even more mistrustful.

The turn of events where Bronte took the upper hand was great. It was wonderful to see Logan step up and meet her challenge. He did it beautifully. The book was sexy and fun and it was a very good read. It also made me want to know more about Hunter Buchanan. I am hoping his story is soon to be told! I am ready to read that one next.
