The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society of six men who have vowed success--at any cost. Not all of them are old money, but all of them are incredibly wealthy. They're just not always as successful when
it comes to love...
Audrey Petty's always been the responsible one. The good twin. Successful, dependable, and trustworthy--that's Audrey. She'd be the perfect girlfriend for her
childhood crush, billionaire Cade Archer...except that she's pretty sure she's not even on his radar. But when fate (and her chaotic twin) come together, Audrey finds out that she'll be spending the next month with Cade at his remote cabin retreat. It's a dream come true...
Until she meets her worst nightmare.
Billionaire playboy Reese Durham is used to seducing women to get what he wants. But when stiff, too-proper Audrey bursts into the private mountain lodge and scares his companion out the door, it's time for a
little revenge. It's clear that Audrey's in love with his buddy, Cade...and it's clear to Reese that blackmailing Audrey with this information can get her to agree to just about anything. Like furtive kisses in the dark, or a secret rendezvous in the woods. Audrey may think she knows what she wants, but Reese is determined to show her what she needs.
And as Reese discovers the volatile minx behind the buttoned-up exterior, he starts to think maybe she's just what he needs, too.
Jessica Clare's adult contemporary romance series, the Billionaire Boys Club continues with her latest offering, The Wrong Billionaire's Bed. Clare's trademark steamy dialogue and romantic situations bring this story to life. In this classic 'good twin'/'bad twin' scenario readers are introduced to Audrey and Daphne Petty,two twins who couldn't be more opposite. Audrey's buttoned up appearance is hiding an inner wild streak and it takes the right billionaire to bring it out. The sexual banter between Audrey and Reese will have readers chuckling as well as fanning a few flames. A great addition to this wonderfully erotic adult series!
The weather outside might be frightful, but this is one novel that requires a cold drink and a strong air conditioner. Jessica Clare once again brings the heat with her latest book in the Billionaire Boys Club series. The Wrong Billionaire's Bed can easily be read as a stand alone, but why would you want to do that, when you can read all of the exciting and sexy stories Clare has cooked up. The Billionaire Boys club is a group of six men who have vowed to be successful no matter the cost. They meet weekly to discuss business and pleasure. Each book focuses on a different billionaire and readers will be thrilled to read, Reese's story.
Reese is the consummate playboy. He doesn't want to settle down he's having way too much fun. But when he unexpectedly meets Audrey Petty, everything changes. I loved Reese's character. He was arrogant and annoying and down right insufferable at times. He knew what buttons to push to get the reactions he was after in business and in pleasure. But when he sees the way Audrey takes care of her sister and the way she looks at his friend Cade, Reese has a longing he has never experienced before. What would it take to make her look at him that way? I loved the way Clare makes Reese the playboy, but completely blindsides him with real love. He was fun to read and a great alpha male hero.
Audrey appears in this series from the beginning and her character is developed over time. She is the good twin. The responsible twin. The twin who fixes everything. And that's never more true than in her relationship with her sister. She is loving and caring with Daphne despite her repeated issues with drugs and alcohol. I liked the fact that Audrey appears on the surface to be prim and proper, but when she finally let's go, she is able to find her inner sex kitten. She has been blinded by a crush she has had on her childhood friend Cade for years. But when a love/hate relationship starts to simmer under the surface with Reese, she finally comes unglued. Clare writes Audrey as a responsible young woman who needs some fun in her life and she certainly finds it here.
The chemistry between these two characters is amazing. They sizzle on the page together. The banter and dialogue that Clare writes for them is a combination of irritating jabs and sexual innuendo's that will have readers looking for the nearest fan. The sexual tension is ripe with these two right from the beginning. There are several intense love scenes between them that keeps racketing up until they nearly explode. I personally thought there were a few too many of these scenes in this one. I prefer a book that has a bit more story vs. sex. But that's not to say that other readers might disagree. I thought the scenes were extremely well written and easily got the response the author was looking for.
I liked the whole back story between the twins and Cade and I suspect that this one is gearing up for a romance between Cade and Daphne. Daphne has a long way to go to be a good fit for Cade but that's the beauty of writing. The author has a challenge here to possibly make readers like Daphne in an upcoming book. I'm looking forward to seeing if that's the route Clare takes in forthcoming books.
Overall this was a very good erotic romance. The story was believable in as much as one can entertain the thoughts of billionaire playboys finding the women of their dreams. It was well paced and had a very good underlying theme with the drug addiction of one of the twins. There were some very good tender moments as well are sexual ones. Reese goes from playboy to asking Audrey to marry him in zero to sixty but I think that was part of what was good about this one. Finding that one person who completes you is a fantastic experience and I think Clare was able to capture that for the reader. A good addition to the series!
