Series: Billionaire Bargains Book #2
Author: Erin Nicholas
Blurb: He can buy anything he wants…except the thing he needs the most.
Things come easy to Tony Steele. Money. Women. A good time. It’s all a piece of cake. Until that cake turns into the wedding cake of Tony’s best friend and the woman of Tony’s dreams, Reese Chaplin.
Tony can’t fix this problem by writing a check. And when Tony finds out his “friend” has been cheating on the woman who’s stolen his heart, he doesn’t hesitate to steal her away. Even if it’s her wedding day.
Nothing about Reese’s big day goes according to plan. She walks down the aisle to marry one man, and winds up in a Vegas wedding chapel with another. After a hot night with Tony, the only thing Reese regrets is that her new husband doesn’t remember anything about it.
Reese suspects the marriage is going to end badly, especially when Tony offers her a million dollars a month to stay married—who does that? But walking away from him turns out to be harder than she’d thought. Especially as she starts to know the man behind the wallet.
Warning: Contains a billionaire playboy who can’t handle his tequila, a Vegas wedding, hot phone sex (and other kinds of hot sex), and a woman who knows how to make a point—even if it requires jumping out of an airplane.
Thoughts: I loved the first book in this series, No Matter What, and if that wasn’t enough to make me want to read book two in this series, that blurb certainly was! I also don’t feel that it was necessary to read book one to enjoy this one as the author does a great job of recapping events for the reader, but of course I recommend it because it was just a great book in and of itself. However, the blurb alone on this one – even if I had never read the first book – would have had me snatching this book off the shelf in a heartbeat – because this is just the type of storyline that is right up my alley. And it so did not disappoint – in fact I read it in just a matter of hours because it was simply that good – so good I just couldn’t put it down.
Tony had always had every so easy….it was usually just a matter of waiting for what he wanted. And that was what he expected to happen with the woman he has desired for months….he would wait, and things would fall into place. Only he waited too long and Reese got snatched up by someone else…his best friend! But in a quirk of fate, he gets another chance – just not quite the way he planned…
I loved how all the events unfolded…..I loved Tony’s determination and Reese’s spunkiness. The interaction between these characters made me laugh, and I honestly just couldn’t get enough of these characters. And I was glad of the timing…..I read this book about a week or so before Valentine’s Day, and it was one of the most romantic endings in a book that I have read. I’m not going to give it away for anyway for anyone, but needless to say this will be one of my favorite romantic reads from now on!
