First sentence: ““Scotch, straight up.””
Plot: Self-made billionaire Nathan Trainor feels restless and disillusioned. His company may be thriving, but he can’t find a woman who sees him for more than his wealth. With his love life in the red, he meets two other billionaire bachelors at the ultra-exclusive Bellwether Club. The three of them make a wager of the heart: they must find women who love them for who they are, not their money.
Savvy office temp Chloe Russell is trying to scrape together the money she needs to support her grandmother. So when a flu epidemic strikes Trainor Electronics and she’s promoted to Nathan Trainor’s assistant, she jumps at the lucrative opportunity. But then Nathan himself falls ill, and he and Chloe must work from his penthouse while he recuperates. Before long, it’s clear there’s genuine heat between them, and it’s more than just a fever spike. Will Nathan win Chloe’s heart—and the bet? Or will their differences destroy any chance for love?
My thoughts: I am a sucker for books like this. Really. Poor (kind of) woman falls for billionaire and they have hot sex. Yeah, that does it.
Really I don’t know what to say about this book other than that I really enjoyed it and I completely fell in love with Nathan. He’s like a Christian Grey without all of the BDSM and Fifty Shades of fucked up stuff. Okay so maybe the stuff with his dad fucked him up a bit but still. Now I’m mad at myself for writing another review where I compare the leading man to Christian Grey. Will I ever stop doing this? God, I hope so!
Anyway, if you want something with suspense, sassiness, douche baggery and hot sex, this is something for you!
Bonus points for Grandmillie and the Doc – who’s name I can’t remember – I really enjoyed those characters. Also Chloe doesn’t take any shit, and you guys know how I love that!
This turned out way shorter than I planned. *sighs* that Nathan though…
