THE WRONG BILLIONAIRE’S BED (Billionaire Boys Club #3) by Jessica Clare-a review
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date October 15, 2013
The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society of six men who have vowed success–at any cost. Not all of them are old money, but all of them are incredibly wealthy. They’re just not always as successful when it comes to love…
Audrey Petty’s always been the responsible one. The good twin. Successful, dependable, and trustworthy–that’s Audrey. She’d be the perfect girlfriend for her childhood crush, billionaire Cade Archer…except that she’s pretty sure she’s not even on his radar. But when fate (and her chaotic twin) come together, Audrey finds out that she’ll be spending the next month with Cade at his remote cabin retreat. It’s a dream come true…
Until she meets her worst nightmare.
Billionaire playboy Reese Durham is used to seducing women to get what he wants. But when stiff, too-proper Audrey bursts into the private mountain lodge and scares his companion out the door, it’s time for a little revenge. It’s clear that Audrey’s in love with his buddy, Cade…and it’s clear to Reese that blackmailing Audrey with this information can get her to agree to just about anything. Like furtive kisses in the dark, or a secret rendezvous in the woods. Audrey may think she knows what she wants, but Reese is determined to show her what she needs.
And as Reese discovers the volatile minx behind the buttoned-up exterior, he starts to think maybe she’s just what he needs, too.
REVIEW: The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed is the third storyline in Jessica Clare’s adult contemporary romance series-The Billionaire Boys Club. Although this is the third in the series, the novel can be read as a stand alone but I would suggest reading in order because several of the previous and future storyline characters are present.
The premise focuses on Audrey Petty, her drug addicted and famous twin Daphne and, billionaires Cade Archer and Reese Durham. When Daphne calls from jail, Audrey knows that to save her twin she will need the help of best friend and life long crush Cade. Hoping to make a move on Cade while helping Daphne through a personal detox at Cade’s cabin retreat in the mountains, Audrey will find herself pulled into the vortex known as Reese Durham. Reese had been working on a ‘business deal’ when Audrey discovers the near naked man in the hot tub with a completely naked woman and from the start Audrey and Reese’s relationship is one fueled by anger, attraction and the realization that just because you have fallen in love with your best friend, doesn’t mean he has fallen in love with you.
Throughout the story, Reese continues to push Audrey’s proverbial buttons: from his reputation with the ladies to the way he handles himself in the kitchen, Audrey is both repelled and attracted to the man. But Audrey’s heart has been set on Cade Archer since before her teens and it appears that Cade has his eyes set on someone else.
The relationship between Reese and Audrey continues to grow throughout the novel. Reese’s attempts to pull Audrey out of her ‘Cade addiction’ will be met with bribery, blackmail and fire as Audrey realizes that she is falling for the billionaire playboy whose reputation has preceded Reese and Audrey’s introduction.
The world building continues from books one and two as the ‘billionaire boys club’ will meet towards the end of the storyline where all of the previous and futures couples reunite. But I will add, that I was disappointed with one direction of this particular storyline as it involved Daphne Petty and Cade Archer. Daphne is a piece of work-famous, infamous and a drug addicted singer whose meddling into her sister’s affairs wreaks of a personal vendetta and one that only suits her own desires and needs-and in this, Cade is a willing participant. I do not want to see this relationship progress beyond this particular storyline but who knows how everything will work out in the end.
The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed is a story of friends and lovers; addiction and recovery; and a lover story with a happily ever after.
