Oh yeah, I loved Simon! He ticked all my boxes...

Smart. Grumpy. Demanding. Kind. Protective. Possessive. Obsessive. Check, check, check!

He was an intelligent computer geek who was obsessed with the heroine, Kara, for a year. I loved that he kept watch over her without her knowing, and then took care of her and comforted her in her time of need although he seemed to have a bit of an ulterior motive in ordering letting her stay with him in his house. But seriously, I didn't care the least b

*While there are three installments in this trilogy, I'm reviewing them all as one story.

The Billionaire's Obsession is not an angsty read. Instead, it is more of a feel good romance about two people falling in love. Simon is a billionaire who is uber smart, sexy, and kind of a social recluse. He doesn’t do relationships and romance. Women use him for his money and in return he uses them for their bodies. That’s what he lives by and how he’s always been…until Kara. He's been keeping an eye on K

A wonderful start to the series, as usual Ms Scott captivates me with her writing, it has the perfect blend of sexiness, sassiness and you can't help but falling in love with the characters, I cannot wait to read more about them.
A wonderful romantic erotic read.

I loved this read. It was one of my first ever reads when investing in a kindle. Simon is seriously HOT. Lucky for Kara he was in love with her. He is very protective of Kara, watched her from afar but unable to get close as he believes she wouldn't be interested. He has a horrific past that he doesn't like to share and likes to do things certain ways, that is until he finds himself looking after Kara and she manages to open up his heart. He realises he can't live without her but he is set in hi ...more

I was so satisfied by such a short and wonderful story. Noticing it was only the introduction into Simon Story made me thirsty in wanting to know more about him and therefore I went ahead and purchase the entire book 1 into the Billionaire Obsession Series. In just the first page it reveals so many loveable characteristics about Simon that I just could not put it down until I reached the very last page. A wonderful read indeed

Mine For Tonight: Book One - The Billionaire's Obsession

Let me start by saying I love JS's books. She is a amazing author. This story will keep u teary eyed and a little ticked off. The things that happen to poor Kara make u want to clone in the book and hurt someone.

Kara Foster is 28 years old College student. She is a waitresses who works doing clinical on Saterdays. The IS hard working and is by herself. She is determined and is ambitious. I absolutely enjoyed her part of this story.

I'm not usually a sucker for sappy romance novels, but I really enjoyed this book. Much better written than 50 Shades! I received the first book for free and ended up splurging on the entire series, which I never do unless I really REALLY liked the book and even then I hardly ever buy the next one in the series. I hate when an author ends the book just as the climax hits just to get you to buy the next 70 books. I usually refuse to do it. But wow.... This one was worth it! A great cheeky love st ...more

At the same time I was falling for Simon I was also falling for J.S. Scott. She is a brilliant author and this is the book that got me hooked on her. The book is FREE so why not check it out. If you don't like it you aren't out anything but I'm pretty sure you will love it too.

I got this book shortly after I got my kindle because it was free. Starting this book I knew nothing about the author. I had never read any of her books and I had never heard of her either. Man, was I missing out. I LOVE T

this was some serious good trash. like, i didn't expect this to be actually interesting and keeping me hooked.

so basically, this is a romance about two people which involves a billionaire and a not so rich girl who have lots of sex, but then start to feel something more than sex.

it was good and interesting and i want to read the rest of the series.

Ahh Simon...kind of a stalker for a year but I loved that he felt so drawn to her. I loved that he could have no other woman than her..but still..a stalker.

Kara..always been on her own and now has someone that can't get enough of her and wants to possess her. My heart wrenched for her because everything was taken from her, but she will gain everything.

When I first read this book, I was unaware that it was the first of series. This book captivated me and made me want more. You read hundreds of books about millionaires falling in love even though they try not too, but add a little bit of a charismatic , sexy yet very poor lady with a heart that fell in love. You will love all the sexy steamy scenes and all the drama....can't wait to read the next one in the series to find out the rest of the story

Sizzling hot story

Strong and sexy story of billionaire Simon and waitress and college student Kara. He's obsessed with her even though she doesn't know. He wants to protect and provide for her, she doesn't care about the money, but for him. He's nice, kind, charming, grouchy and passionate with her. She's intrigued with him, doesn't understand him but want to. She's falling for him.

Mine for Tonight is an engrossing read. Kara a strong willed person and despite her being in dire need with no one to turn to refuses to seek help from anyone but due to the persistence of Simon and his charming personality, not to mention his love for Kara - she soon gives in and falls hard. Author J.S. Scott does it once again and provides us with an entertaining read.

I loved this series they were short but I still loved them. Simon watched Kara for over a year and weirdly enough I don't think of him a crazy stalker. He did it for his own reasons. Then Kara falls on extremely bad luck. And Simon is there to help. And boy does he help. I need to stumble into someone like him, DAMN MY LUCK!!!! But this was a good read and so is the rest of the series.
5 out of 5 Stars

Down on her luck, nursing student and full-time waitress Kara Foster gets a massive blow to her already desperate financial situation that will surely find her living on the streets. Needing nothing less than a miracle to save her, Kara gets rescue from an unknown, unlikely and overwhelming source. Billionaire Simon Hudson, who has been watching her from afar, makes her an offer that is impossible to refuse, but terrifying to accept from a man that she's never met.

I cannot believe I have been so remiss in my duties as a reader! I read this book ages ago and have not reviewed it! What makes this a travesty is that I love this book! This book got me started on my love of J.S. Scott books and Simon is still my #1 BBF! If you have not read this book, do it!!! Do it now! Or just go all out and buy the whole set because you will not be able to stop after the first little bit!

I am a new reader of Ms. Scott novels, but she has gained a fan. I loved Simon and Kara's story. Simon is a tru alpha male, and a character just leaps of the pages, and draws the reader in quickly. The one fault, too short, but was happy to know there are severals novels in the series, including 4 books filled with Simon and Kara banters.

I loved this start to a new series from JS Scott! The story captivated me from the start and had me eagerly flicking pages! I did immediately buy the other books because I just had to know what happens with Simon & Kara. Definitely recommend.

Oh, I so need to read the rest of this collection! Romance is my thing. The scenes were vivid and I liked the language. The fact that he didn't feel confident enough for her to see him was heart pulling to me. But at the beginning, he seemed a little like a stalker.

Love Kara and Simon!!! These characters are great! This series was so unexpected. First books read by this author and LOVED it! Kara was a homeless nursing student who was saved by billionaire genius Simon Hudson. He was infatuated with her. Simon wanted her more than anything. Kara fell head over heels in love with Simon the man not the billionaire. She was the first woman to love him and want none of his money.

Mine for Tonight- Simon is a sexy alpha computer geek, only he doesn't see himself as sexy. He thinks women only want him for what material things he can give them. Of course those are the types of women he seeks out. He sees Kara who is a waitress for his mother. For a year he watches her from afar. He goes as far as following her home after work just to make sure she gets home ok. Kara has no clue that Simon has been doing this or that she walks right by his apartment building daily.
