Title: The Rule Maker [br] Author: Jennifer Blackwood [br] Series: The Rule Breakers #2 [br] Pages: 280 pages [br] Publisher: Entangled Publishing (Embrace) [br] Release Date: January 16th 2017 [br] ISBN-10: 1682813606

The “Hot Billionaire” trend is not fading, and I do have to admit that I like them, but when they get formulaic they do tend to chafe and get repetitive. The Rule Maker was as formulaic as they get. Insert romantic part here, insert quirky scene here. I did find some of the interactions quite entertaining but the overall feel of a cookie-cutter billionaire romance had me losing interest once they hooked up.

Zoey is a motivated interior designer who wants to dominate the industry. A returning client is a sure way to shine, except her client sends his hot brother, snowboarder Ryder Covington. The hot brother that she had a one night stand with in the past. Since her number 1 rule is not to sleep with the client she’s already broken it. But, since Ryder’s rule is to not have sex with a girl more than once (the typical lech hero rule) his renewed attraction to Zoey is also breaking rules. Hence the title. It was cute. I have to give the book that much.

There were some good scenes in which I laughed out loud. There was a scene with a goat in an Uber – which seemed rather unrealistic, but hilarious. I also thought it was cute that he called her Flash because of her underwear, spawned from a very typical contemporary romance quirky heroine/hero reintroduction scene. She tripped and got caught somehow which had her underwear in view when he walked in. Funny, but typical.

Overall, the narration by Kendall Harper, Ray Irwin and produced by Random House Audio was top-notch and made this book worth the “listen” if you are looking for this genre. I like the dual narration and Ray’s voice is quite sexy. So, while the book was okay, the narration made it better. A mediocre audiobook if you are looking for a hot billionaire book…

“Awe, Flash,”….”you almost burnt down half your kitchen for me.”

Ten Steps to Surviving a New Job:
1. Don’t sleep with the client. It’ll get you fired. (Sounds easy enough.)
2. Don’t blink when new client turns out to be former one-night stand.
3. Don’t call same client a jerk for never texting you back.
4. Don’t believe client when he says he really, really wanted to call.
5. Remember, the client is always right—so you can’t junk punch him when he demands new design after new design.
6. Ignore accelerated heartbeat every time sexy client walks into room.
7. Definitely ignore client’s large hands. They just mean he wears big gloves.
8. Don’t let client’s charm wear you down. Be strong.
9. Whatever you do, don’t fall for the client. You’ll lose more than your job—maybe even your heart.
10. If all else fails, see rule number one again.

The Sex Bucket List – An Original and Enjoyable Contemporary by Prescott Lane

The name and genre this book is listed in do not give it justice. The cover, name, and everything else lead you to believe this is gonna be another one of those explicit erotica contemporary romances that are really nothing more than a bunch of sex scenes and little plot. But, this book is nothing of the sort. I was surprised that it is classified within erotica, because I would have thought this would be a straight up romance. Yes, it’s hot – but there is a whole lot more going on than just sexy time.
