On the Flap
Who would have thought a month ago I'd be opening up my very own luxurious lingerie shop? Playboy billionaire Asher Young, that's who. And with his encouragement, and deep pockets (that look very good on the seat of his tight pants), my dreams are finally coming true.
The only problem is, my silent partner has turned out to be all mouth — and lips. And tongue.
Is he for real, or is this just another one of his flirty games? With my dreams on the line, I can’t afford to get played.
But when he touches me like that, all bets are off...
This is the second book in The Billionaire Game trilogy. I really would break this book into halves. The first half seemed very much like the first book. It’s filled with mostly hate of Katie and Asher’s love/hate business partnership. Because of this lack of development with the couple, it renders the pacing as slow. To sum of the first half, Katie wants her dream business. Asher act like an overzealous jerk with his wallet and business acumen. They butt heads all the time.
Now the second half of the book flips a switch. Finally, it gets good and interesting. There is more than just hate and bickering. They seem to build an odd friendship, or at least the start of one. The two also begin to act on the attraction, which up to this point was mostly superficial. With movement towards what appears to be their happy ending, I begin to think what will happen when they explore that thin line between love and hate. Will their chemistry final combust? I also made a mental note of why is this called The Billionaire Game? There is no game except for who can be more obstinate. So about this time is when it kicks up into high gear and the plot gets interesting. With the meddling of Asher’s frenemy, suddenly we find out not everything is as it seems to be and then it ends. The late reveal of the plot twist made me gasp and finally all of the pieces fell into place and the intrigue takes hold. Suddenly I feel invested and want to know what will happen with the couple.
