I absolutely am besotted with this book and adore this author! Where has Jessica Clare been hiding?!

What I loved about this book was just that it’s the all around “feel good” book, you know? It’s the perfect book to take with you on a weekend vacay; the perfect book to snuggle up with on a stormy day; and just a great, *great* read. I swear, her pages are the stuff of Hershey’s Kisses, because you can’t just stop at one

"Why me? You can have anyone you want. Why waste your time with a waitress from Kansas City?"

"Because you treat me like a regular guy. Because you make me smile. Because you light up when you find a perfect quote for the situation, and I love to see that. Because you're smart and funny and down-to-earth, and that's a rare combination in a pretty woman. Because you thought I was no one, and you still took your top off to swim naked with me."

Why the hell am I just reading this

So, this book starts when Bronte and Logan get stuck in an elevator during a storm in a resort in Bahamas. The conditions are awful and they have to help each other in order to being rescued for a few days. And when two people are alone in extreme conditions, well, things are bound to happen, especially when you have to completely rely on the other person.
But the thing is, it all started with a lie. Bronte believes Logan is the hotel manager, but he is in fact a billionaire and he was

Review to Come! But over all, this was a "feel-good" story, and I can't wait to see what each new story in the series brings to the table! So happy I gave this series a try!!

Absolutely wonderful read!

We are introduced to Logan Hawkings who comes from old money is a successful businessman and is also the founder of a secret society, a Brotherhood. A group of men who met in college and pledged themselves and promised to be there for one another. They basically have each others backs, be it personal or business, they help each other out. During one of their meetings Logan is told about an island in the Bahamas that might be a good investment, ever the business

Logan was the picture perfect example of hot, arrogant and sexy billionaire. While this story was chock full of cliches it still had me engrossed and happy. Logan fell hard and had to learn that love couldn't be bought.. And that he was more then his money. Bronte learned that she was worth more than her job description. Two stubborn souls who just fit. I absolutely want to jump into Hunters story now. I'm a big sucker for Beauty and the Beast love stories.
I definitely plan to read more in this

Cute story. Good but not great. Bronte was a tad naive, and a "runner " ( as in when conflicts occur, she runs away ).

This was a sweet, fun and quick read. I did have the "insta-love" aspect to it, but for some reason in this book, I didn't seem to mind. I think it was because I found the characters likeable enough that it seemed to work with this story. Both the H/h fit perfectly together, and Bronte was super adorable.

I read Stranded with a Billionaire and I found it very entertaining. From the very beginning as Bronte Dawson was cursing her bad luck being stranded in an elevator during a hurricane. Her elevator mate is a handsome man that she assumes is the manager of the hotel. So much for the perfect vacation she won. She was a waitress from the mid west and this was supposed to be the end all be all vacation. This evacuation of the hotel was not doing it for her.

Mild spoilers

Aside from the premise, nothing about this book worked for me. And even the premise got mangled with a careless and unbelievable set-up. Maybe in the 70s a hurricane could have taken a small island resort by surprise, forcing a hurried full evacuation. But in 2013 with sophisticated weather predication tools, it just wouldn't happen. The resort hotel was 20 stories tall so it must have been steel and concrete and, therefore, a safe place to shelter in even a category 4 hurricane. Th

In the first installment of the Billionaire Boys Club you meet Logan. He is the leader - the driven one. He has been ridden hard by his father and taught a hard lesson that with wealth, your heart sometimes needs to be guarded. But he's learned his lesson. No more ideals of love for who he is, he knows that with his money no one will ever love him without it. He is controlling, but powerful men are.

This book was just ok to me. I liked Logan and Bronte and they were sweet together, but I wasn't convinced she was his "one". First off I got tired of hearing how he was used to dating only models, ballerinas, etc. Also I didn't need to know that a Ukranian ballerina had been his most skilled lover and that info was given right after his first time with the h.

Logan is part of a society of men who are all wealthy (yeah, it’s kind of cheesy because they call themselves a “brotherhood”, when it should be just a club, but just go with it). All his life, people have used

This book had a little twist on he billionaire meets poor girl and falls in love. I really liked the plot and the fact that the heroine, Bronte, stood up for herself throughout the book. Logan seemed to be cold towards everyone but his 5 friends from college, believing everyone else only to be after his money. At times he was a cold, cynical, jerk.

I didn't expect to enjoy this book as much as I did. It was a typical romance fantasy but then the title sort of gives that away right? The cover also hints that it might be erotica too right? but it isn't although of course it does have love scenes. There are a few unexpected moments mostly having to do with her standing up for herself and him kind of bending over backwards to make her happy. So although this might seem like a Harlequin Presents knock off it really isn't. The characters are a b ...more

Stranded with a Billionaire was a pleasant surprise. I was hesitant to read it because it had "Billionaire" in the title. I immediately lumped with all the other billionaire romances out there. I'm on 'billionaire alpha males' overload and wasn't interested in reading about another one. I am so glad that I gave this book a chance.
