I got this on Amazon for free.

A fresh art major graduate, Ashley Monroe takes the job as a waitress on a prestigious Art Exhibit event. Thanks to her friend but she's been warned to stay clear from the attractive, brooding man. He was known to be rude with the staff but with Ashley's curious mind, she isn't fazed by him. When she stumbled into him, she's mesmerized on his stature. It seems that this man happens to be Xander Boone. A billionaire. The owner of the exhibit.

I really like this novel
This was a kindle freebie. I'm not the biggest fan of authors releasing books a couple of chapters at a time and promoting them as novellas and that is exactly what this is. It's the first part of a longer novel and it ends on an abrupt cliffhanger as an attempt to lure readers into buying the additional 3 installments. Very nice hustle.

This was a typical "Capt. Save-a-ho" escapist read. The elusive playboy billionaire with a dark secret past takes one look at a down on her luck girl and decide

This was less than 100 pages....
The plot wasn't very good....
The characters weren't very likable....
The end was bland....

.5/5 stars rounded up.

I did enjoy this book - characters and plot... I'm glad it was free because I wouldn't have read it as I don't like to pay for 'chapters' instead of getting the whole book.

But it annoys me how authors write a series of 50 page books. It almost feels like a money hunt because you have to keep spending $2-3 for a few chapters. At the end I usually feel like bits were skipped or missed because they were trying to wrap it up faster. Not to mention, it feels like you haven't finished the book because

I wanted to really like this book but I just couldn't. It has a lot of potential but it's too back and forth. He wants her, he can't have her, she wants him, she isn't good enough. It's just too wishy washy. And just ends! Like really just ENDS! I was watching the percentage left and thinking, there is no way this can be resolved and sure ended, unresolved. I just couldn't get into the characters. It's not that they were unrealistic, I'm ok with that usually, it's just ...more
The cover art is completely inappropriate for this book.

Giggling women annoy me. A lot of women in this book do an awful lot of giggling.

I don't know. I think part of what turned me off about this book is how much it overcompensated. I'm a size 16. Yep, I'm overweight, but I don't feel like people treat me like a pariah because of it. Maybe I've been married for too long and just don't give a crap what people think of my physical appearance anymore.

But I felt the book went in the exact opposite
Jeanna-Has Probably Read It!
First of all I loved this story it was a very cute story; HOWEVER, I am disappointed with this book cover. ok yes I myself am a very plump and deliciously curvy woman so why didn't I see one on this book cover. Um, hello, the stories were about billionaires who are in love with plus sized women. Both who were wearing 16-22 clothes. doggonit. I'm sure we could have found a sexy plus sized woman in the arms of a sexy man to put on the cover. Why'd it have to be a skinny woman. lol. I'm not hating ...more

I appreciate the author offering this one for free. It just wasn't for me.

Hero literally fingered in her within the first 5-10 minutes of meeting her at an event she was waitressing with no kindness or preamble in those 5-10 minutes.
Heroine is miserable and ashamed of her size 16 frame. Cries on his shoulder because she's fat. That part just made me depressed.
Hero gives her his Audi R8 upon second [surprise] meeting with no questions asked and she accepts.

If those are issues you don'

I suppose it should be said that this is the first part of a 4 part series, not that in the long run it matters all that much. This was a cute little read. I genuinely liked the character of Ashley. I thought she was well developed and even at parts sympathized with her feelings, especially those centered around her weight. I think there are a lot of women that would sympathize with her in that regard and it was written with tact and care, not made light of in the slightest. While Xander may ...more

I really enjoyed this book. I LOVE that finally someone writes a well written book with a great story line about a BBW. Not all books have to be about the gorgeous billionaire and his super hot size 0 woman. I enjoyed getting both points of view at the same time and was able to very much relate to Ashley and her body image and confidence issue and that has never been the case in other books full of "pretty" people. Thank you Liliana Rhodes for writing about real people with real issues. Can't ...more

This was free on Amazon so I'm not out of any money but even then I'd only pick it up if your bored and nothing else in your "to be read" pile.
Chubby girl (not hating, just stating) gets a temp job and within an hour or so gets picked up by a billionaire. He pleasures her a few times in the book and buys her fancy things and gives her a well paid job but dosnt take anything ANYTHING not even intellectual stimulation! Totally unrealistic and takes away from whatever this story might have been tr

I was not wowed by this book but I did like it. It was cute, fast, and who does not love a old rich man who falls in love with the poor girl. I thought it was cute but I am one of those people who hate when the author writes a little bit of the book and then makes you purchase the next few chapters and then you end up paying $10 for a book that would have sold better if it was all together and cost $4.99 or something like that.

Truly remarkable

At first I was a bit uncomfortable reading the story as it came out a bit more explicit than I usually intend to read but of course every grown woman wouldn't mind a little erotica in their books. It had everything a woman dreamed of, a handsome rich man, the love affair between a man and a woman, the surprises, the paradise.. but of course every good book needs it sadness. Definitely one I would recommend to older friends and families :)

WONDERFUL Beginning to a Completed Series

This is the first story in an erotic romance series. A curvy woman take a temp waitressing position and, against everyone's advise, waits on a difficult patron. Naughty things happen much to her amazement. This is a short, free read. Hot and so good. But the best news is that the whole series is complete and, in a reasonably priced box set. Try this first installment and you will get the series, it is just that good.

I'm not a fan of a book written in first person. I did however enjoy the story flipping from Ashley's to Xanders points of view. The is a book that just ends. You can read the next one in the series for the price of the next book. I think I will skip the rest of the books in this series. It just didn't do anything for me.

Don't judge a book by its cover.

The best part of this book was its cover. This was the biggest waste of time next to the book with the pretty purple crystal on the front. Can't really call it a book nor a novella. What a disappointment. Not recommended for anyone.
The lead character was not reflected on the cover. Don't know if it was "the old her" or "the new her."

I got this book earlier today because it was free on the book store. I didn't think it was going to be that good, but wow that ending left me wondering. I want to know more. It's a really good book. I enjoyed it.

I just loved this book. I knew it was a short read and also in a series.
I can't wait for the to read the next one. I loved the characters and such a strong woman.
I am going to keep on reading
Not bad, I will finish out this serial.

So his every whim is about Ashley who meets Xander at a art galley that she was working at one night and after that their love story just kind of takes off from their and they way things happen between them does kind of happen fast but it was still a good book then you get to the end and you kind of find out more about the mysterious Xander and his past that definitely keep you wanting to read more but the ending killed me and now i must read the second book because i just have to see what ...more

Once again a story that is kind of long in the tooth.
It picks up to end in a part part one? Okay, what will be prolonged in part 2.

Ashley Monroe has a graduate degree in Art History but has found herself unemployed and living on her best friend's couch, just trying to scrape by and get her life in order. Taking on a temporary waitressing gig for a catering company with her roommate, she meets the infamously sour Alexander Boone, owner of Boone Art Gallery, as well as many other enterprises in his billion-dollar portfolio. They spend a few minutes in a bit of a verbal sparring match (due to Xander's downright rude behavior) ...more

Was this written intentionally short? I liked the story but very little delved into the characters and their lives and personalities. I don't think I'll continue reading this story.

No chemistry,at least not on paper ( e reader or not) ,enough chemistry for Ashley to wanna fall open at his every thought and touch but No chemistry between then.... Ashley's not easy ( well I do think so) but everything between them is,No give and take,No push or pull,just barely a more than a look and then their kissing,just barely more than a kiss and he's got his hand in her pants and making climax,she runs out of the gallery a lil embarrassed as how fast things went w/him and

Ok so I got this one free on my kindle and of course I am hooked and want to know what happens next but now I have to buy the other books to continue the book. ugh guess I will have to buy the other parts to finish the book. I hate when authors do this I understand you are trying to lure readers but it gets a little ridiculous.

Anyway the first installment of the series is about Xander & Ashley. Xander has lost his first wife and can't risk loving anyone again. Ashley meets Xander at the Boon

His Every Whim is a novelette by Liliana Rhodes. The problem with novelettes is they are way too short and are easily read quickly. This is book one in a series of the billionaire romance. I am not a true fan of these short novelettes which could easily have been made into one book.
Ashley Monroe is just out of school with an Art History degree. Her financing for graduate work fell through so she is looking for a job, any job. Her friend Jackie Stone is allowing her to crash at her apartment. Sh

This is a surprising little story about a very ordinary heroine, Ashley, trying to find a job with her degree in art history. She has a chance meeting with billionaire Xander Boone, who actually is quite a disagreeable character, which is a shame since otherwise this would have been a much better read. They fall in love immediately, and he whisks her into his expensive lifestyle right away. What I particularly liked about this very short novella is that each chapter is told in the first person, ...more

Sort of started before ending immediately. The characters were haphazardly defined, the plot explained in pieces, and story line completely scrambled. The only thing strong about this book is the title, too bad it is best part.
