Read It, Track It is a way for me to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short.

A small town version of Pretty Womanbut instead of the heroine being a hooker, she's an out of work teacher. And the small town guy turned billionaire is not paying for her bedroom services but her abilities as a pig nanny. That's right, I said pig. THE BILLIONAIRE OF BLUEBONNET was a fast and sexy side story set in the Bluebonnet series by Jessica Clare.

It was lovely! Risa is a great character and I loved how she dealt with the things she didn't like, no drama or stupid ultimatums, she just explained what she wanted or thought and then he let Travis think on it. Travis was a little slow on catching on, but I loved how he didn't repeat his mistakes or that he didn't dismiss her ideas.

My favorite character though was the pig, Gregory. I swear this was the funniest pet ever! He was just so cute and smart and he managed to sucker people in doing w

Billionaire of Bluebonnet-Jessica Clare “The woman opening the door was gorgeous.” “There was something soft and vulnerable underneath her friendly, polite smile” “she took his hand in hers and began to drag him across the living room to the French doors at the far end of the room. That small, warm contact of her hand touching his seemed incredibly intimate and casual.” “Risa had been dazzled by the handsome man this time. Now that she wasn’t being interviewed by him, she could relax and study ...more

Though not as deep as I hoped it would go, this novel is a nice read nonetheless. About half way I was thinking 'why doesn't she just go? What is she doing sticking around? Take the pig. Go and find a new job.' And unfortunately that stayed with me throughout the novel until the end. But I did enjoy sections of it.

Jessica Clare managed to capture my heart with this very short story. This book has the same flavor as The Girls Guide to (Man) Hunting but squeezed in a little package of a novella.

Travis Jesson is successful and a very rich businessman who had to come back home to the small town of Bluebonnet to take care of his inheritance. What he didn’t know was that his grandmother left him more than he expected. One smart grandmother, as she kn

I really enjoyed the first book in this series The Girl's Guide to (Man) Hunting and I was looking forward to this novella while we waited for the next The Care and Feeding of an Alpha Male. I liked the story but this novella was very, very short! And I didn't feel like I could get 'into' the story at any point. Still, I'm looking forward to The Care and Feeding of an Alpha Male!
Unfortunately this was extremely short so there was little time for a believable relationship to develop. Risa and Travis' meetings prior to the start of this book didn't let me believe they would be so willing to make life-altering changes after being together a week. Gregory the pig was fantastic. This is nothing like the other books in the series, so aside from being set partially in Bluebonnet, you don't need to read this at all (these characters weren't even mentioned in the first 2 ...more

I enjoyed this novella a lot! While I agree with my dear friend Kristin on her point that occassionally in a novella characters have little time to develop, Travis melted my heart when he broke down looking at his granmother Pearl's scrapbook! This was a huge point in his favor and (for me) made up for the lack of development! Plus they sorta had a history (albeit more for her than him), which offset the lack of development for me...AND what Travis did after his emotional breakthrough just won ...more

This book got me in trouble. It showed up on my husband's kindle and he glanced at it and was horrified at the language. I hope he doesn't find 50 Shades of Grey on there. :O I really like this author, but although the pig was cute, it didn't really add much to the story. It was a novella though, a nice quick read. Extremely hot (which got me in hot water). I like the Succubus and Dating Service books a bit better than the Bluebonnet ones. Love this author!

I've never had any problem with short story and I actually preferred one but tgis story is just bland. There is no chemistry whatsoever between the H n h. They just basically a hook-up whom all of sudden felt connected with each other????? This story really felt incomplete. The story kinda insulting thou as the H wouldn't even notice the h when she was not "beautiful" as she turned into and not wearing glasses. Urghhh so not fair

This book didn't seem to fit into the series at all. I hated the main guy, Travis. He was the typical CEO, can't live without his phone, overachieving jerk. He has been this way so long, and Risa changes his mind within a week? The whole thing didn't seem believable.

I love this series and can't wait for the next book in the series. So if this the is the first book you read in the series, don't be discouraged by this review, cause this series is awesome.

I liked this novella. The characters moved pretty fast but since it was so short, I guess they had to in order to wrap it up. I liked Gregory the pig. I am ready to read the next Bluebonnet book. This novella did not take place in Bluebonnet for very long. They were only there for like a couple of days.
2.5 stars

A too short, wayyyyy overpriced novella that doesn't really add anything to this otherwise great series. Unless this one suddenly becomes a free read, it definitely doesn't need to be read in order to enjoy the rest of what Bluebonnet has to offer (IMHO).....

This book by Jessica Clare really caught my attention... It was a fun read especially the cute wee pig... I have read all the books in the Bluebonnet series.. and I have loved them..This was one of the books you cannot put down until you have finished.. it is short but sweet..
This one was short, but surprisingly enjoyable.

We didn't really get to know either character deeply due to it's length.

Gregory was amusing.

All in all, I enjoyed it. I think it felt like she was starting to percolate ideas for the Billionaires Series and used this as a testing ground.

It was not the worst Ive read but also not the best. He was a little... hmmm... over the top. And the sex was not as good as book 1. All in all... a good short story just not in the the Bluebonnet line.

I gave it 3 stars because sometimes with a novella you don't have time for the couple to develop. That's what I felt here.

This book was ok. I liked it but felt like I didn't really get to know the characters properly. Wish it was a bit longer.

I liked the fact that the female love interest was a curvier girl. There just isn't enough of those.
