Thomas St Clair is used to getting exactly what he wants, when he wants it. So when a mysterious woman shows up at his door with his runaway dog and her presence drives away his writer’s block, he’s willing to put up with her secrets if it means she’ll stay around.
Mila Elderkin once had a promising career in journalism, until her dreams were shattered by a rising star in the literary world. When fate lands her at that same man’s door years later, and he doesn’t recognize her, it seems she’s been offered a chance for a little fun. Mila’s not out for revenge, especially not once she starts to see the man beneath the persona. But the past has funny way of creeping into the present, and secrets don’t lie quiet forever.
The Stubborn Billionaire (Book 1)
Lexxie Couper started writing when she was six and hasn’t stopped since. She’s not a deviant, but she does have a deviant’s imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get erotic romances that can make you laugh, cry, shake with fear or tremble with desire. Sometimes all at once.
When she’s not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie’s life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she’s insane, a indoor cat who likes to stalk shadows, and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever.
I have a confession. I may or may not overlook a book if it has the word billionaires in the title. (Insert blushing emoji hiding behind hands) I can’t help it. Since the book market has been flooded with independent titles, I have found myself disappointed with several of the billionaire insta-lust romances.
BUT I was intrigued by The Mistaken Billionaire’s plot – it looked like a fun read. BUT I let it sit in my library forever. Honestly, I had wicked high hopes and I was terrified that I was going to be let down by another storyline or set of characters.
BUT here’s what makes me love finding new authors and taking chances with books. Some times they exceed all of your expectations and blow you out of the water. The Mistaken Billionaire was one of those books for me – I freaking LOVED this romance.
Thomas and Mila shared the most incredible chemistry. I wanted to reach into the story and rip their clothes off for them. Sweet Jesus!! These two!! Every moment together was exciting and passionate. Fun. I absolutely adored my time with this duo.
Mila and Thomas share a history – unknowingly to Thomas – and it taints the budding relationship for Mila. She knows that once Thomas learns the truth, it will be all over for them and she isn’t willing to give him up. This should have made for a predictable read, right?!? Lies always blow up in the face of the liar and eventually they work it all out. Blah, blah, blah.
What made this such a good book was that I knew what was coming and yet, I totally wasn’t prepared when it happened. I was so entrenched in their lives that I stopped thinking and was just experiencing the story as it happened. It was awesome.
It’s what make The Mistaken Billionaire a must read recommendation from me. You need to meet this couple and experience their journey. It’s spectacular storytelling from Lexxie Couper.
