On the flap: BILLIONAIRE (Complete Book)
Lila Carmichael is a good girl, a high-achieving academic, punctual to a fault, unfailingly conscientious – and embarrassingly inexperienced. After graduating from Princeton, Lila moves to New York City and begins her job search. Innocent and naïve, she is swept away by an uncharacteristic bloom of total abandon as soon as she meets the tall, dark-eyed CEO of Wolfe Enterprises. Under Alexander’s potent influence, Lila is thoroughly transformed from demure virgin to lusty goddess in just two days. Given her upbringing, it’s only natural that Lila would be attracted to such a pinnacle of stability, but as emotion and lust entwine, she begins to question the motives behind her covetous, hedonistic desires.
Alexander Wolfe needs a new assistant to help him run his publishing empire. One résumé in particular catches his eye and he decides to interview the candidate one-on-one in his private penthouse office. When a green-eyed goddess walks in, Alexander, for the first time in his life, finds himself powerless to resist. The difficulties of his past ensure that his protective instincts are fiercely attuned, and Lila’s vulnerabilities, combined with her nubile body and voracious new appetites, only succeed in ensnaring Alexander past the point of no return.
Set in New York and Paris, Lila and Alexander’s connection is a whirlwind of lust, love, jealousy and obsession. Will they find their happy ever after?
BILLIONAIRE (Complete Book) is approximately 310 pages. It is a serialized eBook originally published as a series of chapters. It contains adult themes, strong language and sexual situations. It is intended for adult readers.
Lila Carmichael has overcome some tough situations to put herself through school and graduate from Princeton. Now finding herself with a degree and a hefty student loan balance, she’s been hitting the pavement to find a job and start to make her name in the publishing world.
As CEO of Wolfe Enterprises, Alexander is used to being in charge. He’s an alpha male who built his empire from the ground up with lots of hard work. Now after meeting Lila, he’s carefully structured world seems to be crumbling around him.
Billionaire sounds better in the synopsis than what I found it to be in reality. If you’re looking for a smutty good time, then this will fill that need. Lila and Alexander have a basal, animalistic connection where they need each other ALL the time. Some of the sex is downright dirty, some kinky, and a little that pushes comfort levels, but it’s all satisfying. On the other hand, if you want some depth to the story and the characters, this is one you’ll want to skip it. I couldn’t quite wrap my head around going in for an interview and sleeping with the owner twenty minutes later. Did I mention she was a virgin? I think it’s at this point where I realized the focus of the book is sex, not substance, which is perfectly fine if that’s what you want. For me, it just isn’t my cup of tea.
