Masquerading with the Billionaire by Alexia Adams – a Review
World-renowned jewelry designer Remington Wolfe is competing for the commission of a lifetime and someone is trying to destroy his company from the inside. He’s in for more than one surprise when his unexpected rescuer turns out to be a sexy computer specialist with a sharp tongue and even sharper mind.
Kat Smith is a cyber-security expert and master of disguise. So being assigned to masquerade as Wolfe’s girlfriend while she uncovers who slipped malicious code into his corporation’s computer systems is no problem. But when Kat’s past catches up to her and their fake relationship starts to feel a little too real, problems are all she seems to have.
This is my first Alexia Adams book I’ve read and I believe it won’t be the last. I really enjoyed Alexia’s storytelling in Masquerading with the Billionaire. It was a fast fun read that kept me on the edge of my seat with an air of mystery and intrigue that surrounds our heroine Kat throughout the book keeping us in suspense regarding her true identity. To add to this air of mystery and intrigue we have one very sexy and intense hero in Remington Steele Wolf. Yes that’s his full name, and I LOL at it the first time we first learn of it, love it!! Together Kat and Wolfe form a formidable pair both in the bedroom and the office. Their scenes together are wrought full of flirty banter and sexual tension that gets more intense with each passing scene. You know it’s only a matter of time before these two fall into each other’s arms and when they finally do, they burn up the pages. Their romance is a flirty, fun, and steamy one to say the least. However, all the while the truth of who Kat really is keeps looming over them making it harder and harder for Kat to keep her emotions and feelings for Wolfe at bay.
Alexia not only writes a steamy romance in this one, she’s also written a story chalked full of emotion that pours off the pages and makes us want to see Kat change her fate, find her sister, and finally get all that she deserves. Kat’s backstory about where she came from and what she went through to get to where she is now tugs at the heartstrings and wants to see her and Wolfe win at love. Not only is Kat struggling with her growing feelings, but so too is Wolfe thanks to his passion, dreams and driving ambition to become ‘The’ world’s best jewelry designer. Thanks to his ambition and dream he’s always kept personal relationships to a minimum and just sexual. He never allows himself to bring feelings into a relationship thanks to one relationship that left a bitter taste in his mouth. However, the more time he spends with Kat he realizes there’s more to relationships then just sex, and starts to think that maybe, just maybe he can have both, love and his dream. He’s also discovered that thanks to Kat his passion for creating and designing his jewelry takes on a whole new meaning, as she seems to have become his muse. All together now, awww. Isn’t Wolfe a sweetie? Tough exterior, but inside he’s a teddy bear with a heart of gold.
I really enjoyed Masquerading with the Billionaire. The story is well thought out with a good amount of suspense, intrigue, passion, emotion and a side of flirty playfulness to balance it all out. It makes for a page-turner of a story where you can’t put the book down for one minute because you need to know what’s going to happen next. I just love these kinds of stories. They keep me interested from beginning to end and then wanting more when I’ve read the last line. Looking forward to reading more by Alexia Adams.
Until next time, happy reading everyone!
