The Billionaire Beast, Another Damaged Billionaire Harasses a Good Girl Until She Falls In Love…

The Billionaire Beast is the first book by Jackie Ashenden that I’ve read, even though it’s 2nd in the series. It can be read as a stand-alone though, so I didn’t have issues following along. I feel like every romance that is getting tucked into my inbox is a Billionaire novel – and each one is getting more outlandish than the next. This one isn’t your typical billionaire in the setting, but it’s stereotypical in the composition. Ashenden set out to create more of a “bastard” billionaire than all the rest and she succeeded and then wrapped him in a mental illness so you’ll pity him. While I did enjoy the novel, when it ended I felt a bit let down, because it is a fairy tale novel – the happily-ever-after was too contrived.

Another “Hot Billionaire Novel” The Rule Maker by Jennifer Blackwood

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.

Review: Exiled by Jasina Wilder

Madame X was a surprise hit for me last year, and the second book, Exposed, left me waiting excitedly for the final book in the trilogy, Exiled. I want to say it was everything I expected, and while parts of it did have what I'd been hoping for in a conclusion, overall it was predictable and I'm embarrassed to say I skimmed over quite a bit. I guess you could say that I have mixed feelings about Exiled, and as a result, the trilogy as a whole.

Manwhore +1 by Katy Evans #Review

PJV QUICKIE: At the end of Manwhore, I absolutely could not wait for Manwhore +1.  While I did enjoy reading about Rachel and Saint again,  Manwhore +1 missed the spark of uncertainty and anticipation that I loved in the first book. When we left Rachel Livingston at the end of Manwhore, her life was in a shambles:  She had just been exposed for doing a secret article on one of Chicago’s...

His Secretary: Undone by Melanie Marchande

PJV Quickie: With Billionaire romances being “all da rage” on Amazon, you can get some really crappy picks. Especially when it is up for free or Kindle Unlimited. But, Melanie Marchande’s His Secretary: Undone wasn’t that bad.  It was entertaining, as long as you suspended that thing called logic and took it for what it was, a billionaire romance. Review: The main gist of...
