Cover & Title - 4 out of 5.
Favorite Character - Joshua

I am not a fan of second chance romances but i managed to really get into this book. I think the main reason for this was the chemistry between the leads. I have read many books with a similar plot (but not the exact same story-line) and i would say this is top 5 of out of the maybe 50 similar books which i have read. I liked both of the leads & i liked how everything sparked between them. I thought the sex scenes were HOT,...more

This was pretty good. In fact I love stories where the characters have a past together. Derek was bent on revenge and it started out pretty good but by 70% I just completely hated him. I get the whole misunderstandings and all but his personality got on my nerves. I thought he was a complete and utter jerk with no remorse until the the the very end. The storyline was nice and Jasmine and Jacob were great, even the cousin were great. Just didn't care for Derek.

Cute.. very predictable but still cute. Good in between book.
The hero and heroine knew each other when they were teenagers. They were planning to run away together when without both of them knowing it, the heroines father put a stop to it. Many years have passed and they both blame each other. The hero wants revenge, in order to get it he does a hostile takeover of the heroines fathers company. The heroine is upset that she may be fired because she has a son to support, the hero's son from when they were teenagers and she gave him her virginity. When the...more

I'm giving it 3 stars because I got it for free from Amazon.

Story-wise though, it was way, way, way too cheesy for me. Again, the BIG MISUNDERSTANDING played a very big part in the development of the story. I found myself yawning half-way through and then laughing because the heroine supposedly hated the hero but one touch from him and she's in a pile of sexual goo. LOL!

I can't complain too much though since it's free.
The book held such promise but ended up being painful to read. The h was noting but a doormat. Everything was cookie cutter, unrealistic, and childish. The H was a vindictive sob.
this was a suprisingly good read. First read from this author too. I will be looking out for herin the future.

I loved this story. It was one of the best love story’s I have read in a while! I know my review cannot do this book any justice. This is a book that you just have to read. It left me with a smile. It is defiantly a feel good book!

Jasmine and Derek were high school sweet hearts. They had agreed to meet at a church and run away together to start their new life. Something happened, and caused them to go separate ways for 10 years.

Derek had grown up poor and hated the way Jasmine’s dad talked down...more
Another mistaken communication plot line. I would have liked to have more supporting roles flesh out this romance story, where are the neighbors that helped Jasmine raise her son as a single mother, her friends (I'm not counting the backstabbing mothers on the wrestling team) and Derek's father and cousins? We only see fleeting glimpses of these people, half a page at best. I also can't believe that this couple didn't see each other for ten years... really?!... no one googled each other? I googl...more
Okay from the title you can guess how the story goes a misunderstanding unresolved, they meet ten years later and reconnect, but some people have secrets.....

To be honest that's why I picked up this book as I fancied an easy HEA read and this book delivered.

I loved Derek, from poor to rich, but kept his roots with him and appreciated how others got by on less than he has, his plan of revenge is muddled by feelings he doesn't expect.

Jasmine has struggled for ten years, her father no help, his the...more

God , it was a torture finishing this .

“If you’re my dad, then what did you say to my mom every night before you had to leave?”

A question asked by 9 year-old boy to a man he just found in his mother bed . And you know what was the answer ?

“Sweet dreams my princess, I will rescue you from the tower in the morning light,”

Really .
I'm not making this up .

Even though i finished the book but at that point i just give up , there were so many damn things that were just frustrating .

It's not a classic or a book you keep forever or one that you pass around to all your friends, but this was a reaal good book that I read from beginning to end in one sitting. I was captured.

This was a fast paced great contemporary romane that deserves a 5 star rating in it's contemporary category. The writing was good. There was follow through. The story was good. the feelings of the characters were gripping & there was a sweet HEA even though it was unexpected how that would play out.

The Tycoon’s Revenge – Baby for the Billionaire series

Derek and Jasmine


After reading Melody Anne’s Billionaire Bachelor series, I just had to read this one… although it doesn’t have as many books in the series, it still a gem… and of course she gives you the first one free and the rest are only $2.99…

I think this book averaged about 200 pages and kept me hooked for a day… her stories are short, sweet, and to the point… and everything in between is just smok...more

This was a fun sexy read about miscommunication, love, and lust.

10 years ago, Jasmine and Derek were teens in love. Derek was from the wrong side of the tracks but driven, and Jasmine was daughter to the richest man in town (who also happened to be extremely cruel.) They planned to run away together the big city and get married, start a new life together, but when it came time to leave, a series of circumstances and that meeting never happened. Each thought the other betrayed them.

Now, Derek has...more

I really liked this novel, even though it had one of the common and most annoying "romance conflicts/mix-ups." Jasmine and Derek were childhood sweethearts and at 18 planned to run away together, which is when her father secretly interfered (because the boy was poor and not good enough for his rich daughter). Due to her father's meddling, when the time came to run away, both lovers thought it was the other one standing him/her up! Ten years go by and they meet again - now he is rich and she...more

Jasmine and David have known one another for years. Following a failed marriage attempt, the two have separated and went there own ways. Nearly a decade later, fate brings the two back together with David buying the company were Jasmine works.

There was a lot of conflict in this book, so the author had a ton to work with. A secret baby (Jasmine was pregnant when she left David, gasp!), daddy issues, David’s millionaire status, fad...more
I enjoy reading this author's books. They are fun and light reads. This one is the first in the series but none of her books have to be read in order. That is one of the things I enjoy about her writing is that she may write the books as a series but never confines you to reading the whole series or in order.

So in this story we follow Derek as he extracts his revenge on the woman who broke his heart 10 years ago. He hasn't gotten over it because he has always felt that she left him because he wa...more
Derek Titan and Jasmine Freeman were in love as teenagers and planned to run away together. Her father; who was the richest man in town, put an end to all that when he told Derek (as he handed him an envelope full of money) that Jasmine didn't want to tell him herself, but she was done with him. Derek started planning his revenge right then.
Fast forward 10 years. Derek is now a multi-billionare and has taken over Freeman Corporation. He has part of his revenge against David Freeman and now he n...more

High school sweethearts whom are torn apart by lies. 10 years past and one thing is on Derek Titan's mind: revenge. But what he doesn't realize is that the girl he fell madly in love with never deceived him.

This was a fast pace & enjoyable read. Be prepared to dive into endless sexual tension & hot sex between these two protagonists whom after ten years of being apart still have that intense chemistry between one another.

Its obviously a predictable story but its the angst, the hurt/pain...more

First half of book you have a big misunderstanding from the past that is causing animosity b/n the eventual romantic pairing. This led to lots of anger and mistreatment by the guy to the girl but then their "traitorous bodies" would have them fall into the sack. Some people love that sort of thing but it isn't for me. Second half of book you have guy discover the secret love child from between in the past and the dealings with that and the characters realizing they are still in love. These two n...more

Jan 2014 Erotica/Romance/Smut Review Challenge - to catch up on my backlog.

Second chance romance with a lot of the typical cliches. Still, the chemistry was believable, though the miscommunication aspect was just a bit too far fetched.
