ABOUT THE BOOK: Re release July 1, 2014
The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society of six men who are incredibly wealthy—but not always so successful when it comes to love…
With a visit to a recent business acquisition—a private island resort in the Bahamas—billionaire Logan Hawkings has a chance to mend his recently broken heart. But a hurricane, a misplaced passport, and a stalled elevator lead to an encounter with an unusual woman.
Brontë Dawson is down-to-earth, incredibly sensual, and even quotes Plato. She also thinks Logan is simply the hotel’s domineering yet sexy manager. And after several steamy island nights in his arms, Brontë’s ready to give her heart—and her body—to the man in charge. There’s just more to Logan than he’s told her…a billion times more.
REVIEW: STRANDED WITH A BILLIONAIRE is the first instalment in Jessica Clare’s contemporary, adult Billionaire Boys Club romance series focusing on six billionaire friends who have vowed success at any cost. This is billionaire businessman Logan Hawkings and waitress/philosophy graduate Bronte Dawson’s story. Trapped in an elevator then left behind at a private island resort during a hurricane Bronte and Logan will discover that roughing it will take on a whole new meaning. STRANDED WITH A BILLIONAIRE has a decidedly ‘Pretty Woman’ /Cinderella esque feel to the storyline.
Told from third person POV the premise follows Logan and Bronte’s building relationship while struggling to survive in a resort that has been partially destroyed by the weather. When the evacuation notice went up, Bronte found herself searching for her friend’s passport only to realize that the buses had left without her. Stranded together in a disabled elevator, Bronte and Logan will soon discover that the storm brewing outside is nothing compared to the storm brewing between each other. Their rescue and return to civilization will find Bronte walking away when she discovers that Logan has hidden his true identity and the nature of his visit to the islands.
The relationship between our couple is sensual, erotic and necessary. From acquaintances to friends to lovers, Logan and Bronte want one another but returning to the real world sets a string of misunderstandings and emotional upheavals into motion. Bronte is a woman, struggling with her direction in life, who believes she does not measure up to Logan’s lifestyle. Logan is an arrogant, sexy and dominant man who has fallen hard for the feisty philosophy –spouting waitress. He will have to work to restore Bronte’s trust but Bronte is a woman whose fragile ego must learn to accept that the differences between her and the man with whom she has fallen in love are a matter of the heart and the mind.
We are introduced to the group of six billionaire businessmen-friends and former fraternity brothers whose ambition was to succeed at all costs and succeed they have done. Each billionaire will have a story to tell, a lover to find and a happily ever after. Bronte’s co-worker and roommate Gretchen will play a significant role in the next instalment –Beauty and the Billionaire-where Logan’s physically scarred friend Hunter Buchanan finds himself drawn to the spunky coffee-serving barista.
STRANDED WITH A BILLIONAIRE is a romantic, passionate and predictable storyline that introduces the men of the Billionaire Boys Club series. If you are a fan of fairy tale endings with a HEA, then the Billionaire Boys Club series is for you.
Copy supplied by the publisher through Netgalley.
