The Billionaire Bachelor (Billionaire Bad Boys #1)

Release Date: June 28, 2016
Manwhore. That's what the board of directors-and the tabloids-thinks of billionaire bachelor Reese Crane. Ordinarily he couldn't care less, but his playboy past is preventing the board from naming him CEO of Crane Hotels. Nothing-and no one-will keep him from his life's legacy. They want a settled man to lead the company? Then that's exactly what he'll give them.
Merina Van Heusen will do anything to get her parents' funky boutique hotel back-even marry cold-as-ice-but-sexy-as-hell Reese Crane. It's a simple business contract-six months of marriage, absolute secrecy, and the Van Heusen is all hers again. But when sparks fly between them, their passion quickly moves from the boardroom to the bedroom. And soon Merina is living her worst nightmare: falling in love with her husband . . .
5 out of 5 stars
This was so, so awesome! Loved every single second. It was everything I want in a story. I couldn't get enough! And Reese? Oh my! He melts my heart.
This was so incredibly good and I am thrilled with how it all played out. Reese and Merina had that animosity and fight that I love in a couple. It's one of my favorite things when characters bicker and feelings develop but they're totally in denial and I thought this was done perfectly. I was really pulled in with the character development, rich details, and the overall build.
Together Reese and Merina could be so playful. Loved the verbal sparing, so entertaining. There was so much sexual tension happening, it was off the charts. And that heat when it explodes? WOW! Loved the emotion that was happening as well. I found myself getting choked up several time because I was so caught up on all these little moments as they fight the demons from their past. Merina was wonderful. I might have a bit of a girl crush on her, strong and feisty and doing what she thinks best for her family. Reese was rather fantastic too. I loved watching his barriers break down and things progress. At one point I felt like my heart was breaking but it all worked itself out, that man is swoon worthy. There’s a nice amount of drama, heat, and a whole lot of love. For a bit I was worried and holding my breath and stressing out but I was so thrilled by the end, smiling ear to ear.
There as so many great characters introduced. I am so excited to read the rest of this series. Loved Reese's Dad and his brother Tag and can't wait to get to meet Eli. I like how there were some bits of foreshadowing making me want more. There were just so many wonderful things and fantastic moments, I couldn't get enough and hated for it to end.
Seriously awesome read. I am so happy. The perfect blend of entertaining and sexy with just the right amount of emotion mixed in, a definite must read!
