On his arm… And in his bed? 

What is his intern's photo doing on an escort website? Bastian Christou doesn't know if he's more surprised by her double life, or her stunning photo—she's kept those curves well hidden! He has an ex-fiancée to keep at bay and Emmie Marshall might just be the best armor money can buy. 

Emmie is outraged when Bastian, her uncompromising boss, conf

Lynn Graham has long been a favorite author for me, but this romance is weak. I didn't feel the love. Graham vividly and explicitly depicted the sex scenes (too sudden) and the heartbreaking rejection scenes ("Don't get ideas, it's only sex, I just want a typical shag, we don't have a relationship..."). But she depicted no vivid relationship-building scenes.

In passive terms, in past tense, Graham mentioned that Bastian was wonderfully caring and attentive to pregnant Emmie for three weeks in Lo
This is really a 2 star read. I guess I gave it the other star because it's Lynne Graham and she's a favorite of mine. This book ultimately lacked conflict. I am reading this series but this was the weakest of the three so far. The reason that the heroine was so bitter and all was just not real realistic. I felt like everything was sort of checked off of a list. So pretty formulaic. The heroes actions don't make much sense either.

Still, I am looking forward to the fourth and final sister's book

Enjoyable latest offering by LG.Typical LG hero that you wanted to hit over the head with a cast iron skillet, but he redeems himself at the end.The heroine was likeable.Loved the epilogue which caught up on the 3 sisters families, looking forward to the 4th sister's book.

Dowdy-dressing intern is out of sorts when she sees her usually-distinterested software-developer boss sexually assessing her.

She’s shocked to find out that he paid exorbitantly for her services as an escort for the weekend at his sister’s wedding. She tries to refute claims about working as a paid escort but feeling indebted to her mother, who owns the escort service, makes her take the weekend job with Hero. Their attraction escalates quickly that weekend to the point that heroine finds herse

The 3rd book in A Bride for a Billionaire and the wicked mother is still giving the Marshall sisters a hard time……now she’s running an escort agency and using pictures of one of her daughters on the site. No doubt poor Emmie will discover the “fall-out” it will cause in her life….but as usual….we tend to forgive our parents even when they are something like her mother….that is one dysfunctional human being!!!!!!

First, the title does not make sense and doesn't relate to the story but that's how Harlequin does now, make up crappy titles.
Ok. Now the review.
The hero is a standard Lynne Graham hero, alpha wealthy and living the single life.
The heroine is a standard Lynne Graham heroine, likable virginal and struggling to make ends meet. Modernish Cinderella.
What didn't work was the heroine's reaction when the hero referred to their hookup as such and the heroine got upset about it. This was not a traditiona
I liked this overall. Emmie's bluntness and humor won me over because the romance, while it existed, wasn't mind-blowing. She and Bastian did generate enough chemistry to keep my interest. I liked how Bastian stepped up to the plate without having his arm twisted (view spoiler).

I would have liked more insight into Bastian's romantic feelings for Emmie however. He said it really hit him after she left him. But we weren't given ac
I am pretty sure I read this series but just haven't rated them. I remember or at least think I remember Saffys romance. If I can I'll reread them

As another reviewer said this book felt totally superficial and dry. The emotions were not there, the characters seemed mechanical and cold, the relationship felt forced and the plot was flat. Felt like a filler book.

I'm skipping this one because I already hate Emmie (since book 1), the reviews are not that favorable for me to give it a chance and read the first chapter and didn't engage me.

I'm continuing on the path of a few days of Harlequin reading. I'll be honest and state I tend to read a boatload of Harlequin romances to get back into the groove of reading. When I get stuck I read a few HPs and start moving on to other things. As of writing this, I've already moved onto a few other titles and am hoping to finish up some of my current reads (I've got about five going right now).

There was a lot to like about this one, but a lot to not like about it.

For one thing, I really liked Emmie... sort of. She was a little obnoxious with her sayings and had a somewhat judgmental attitude about Bastian (while not having a nearly enough judgmental attitude about her bitch-faced mother), but at the same time, she didn't let him walk all over her. She did get shoved into a corner about the escort thing, but that was more her mother's doing than Bastian's.

First of all, Lynne Graham is in my Top 5 Harlequin/Mills & Boon Authors' list. That said, I really wanted to rate this book a little higher, but I really can't be so generous this time. Ok, she never dissapionts. But, reading the previous books of this series, I have to admit that I expected more of this one.

First, the characters. They are the typical greek hero and the strong heroine of all Lynne's books. They have some chemistry, but not enough compared with the first 2 books.

I wanted to give this book higher and had greater expectations for this book but it fell flat. Emmie and Christian barely knew each other. He treated her like crap and said some really awful things to her; yet somehow at the end after she runs away and he finds her again, he suddenly has fallen in love with her, wants to marry her and everything is wonderful. All the while, not having ever ONCE really tried to work out any of their issues or even acknowledging, let alone apologizing for the way ...more

Didn't like this book. Typical Harlequin plot line: Boss takes virgin employee on trip with him to some exotic location, they have sex, she gets pregnant, and then they get married. Not only is that old formula completely unoriginal, but also add in an alpha male who is completely insensitive, impolite and arrogant. The couple is either constantly bickering with each other or he's hurting her feelings and never apologizing or feeling the least bit of remorse for it. On top of that, he just simpl ...more

I really enjoy Ms. Graham's books and this is one with a semi spunky heroine...there were some issues that I thought were kinda 'are you really that trusting' situations but overall a really nice story. AND no typo/editing issues noted.
this book is not worth the time it takes to listen to. This book was just lacking in excitement, character development, climax, and likable characters. Lynne Graham seems like a good author but she did not try with this book. Maybe a rewrite and change the character development will make this book better. I will not reread this book.

A little convoluted to my taste. Not worth another read. I was disappointed by the characters. They didn't seem to have anything in common. Strange story.

The Billionaire's Trophy really gave me a good laugh. I really enjoyed reading this one. This is the reason why Lynne Graham is a favorite of mine. It had everything I was looking for in a nice Harlequin Presents book.

Emerald “Emmie” Marshall worked as an intern. She was shocked when her hot and gorgeous boss Bastian Christou called her and informed her that he knew about her working as an escort. She was appalled, hurt and humiliated because she had no idea that her nefarious mother actually do

2.5 stars.
It was an okay book but I found it lacking in detail and substance. Let me explain.
** spoilers **

The first obvious gap comes after the heroine takes off after their weekend together. Next thing we know is it's three weeks later and he's finally trying to get hold of her while she's in a toilet taking a pregnancy test. There's no real description of what's been happening over those weeks and/or how they've felt.
Next is when she walks out on him while he's overseas. She's upset and pl

Y con esta historia termino la serie, de este libro me gustó mucho que Saffy (mi favorita de las cuatro hermanas, junto con su historia con Zahir) y Emmie volvieran a acercarse.
No tengo ninguna gemela o gemelo, pero debe ser muy triste tener una y estar alejada de ella, siendo que comparten una conexión especial.

Y lo dicho, Odette es una hdp de primera, aunque debo admitir que sin su egoísmo y su narcisismo, las chicas no habrían encontrado a sus hombres. Y sobre todo esa unidad de familia que

A root-for-the-heroine love story ....... no spoilers

Emmie is a hard working and independent gal, trying to advance her career while flying under the radar. While living with her estranged mother, she is guilted into an escort situation with none other than the owner of the company where she is working as an intern.

Bastian is the rich, gorgeous Greek owner of a computer company, who find himself in need of a "girlfriend" to cover the recent breakup of a relationship.

While Lynne Graham does write different plot scenarios into her romance fiction, she does follow predictable cliches and formula. Here it's no different, and that gets taxing as it pulls away some of the unpredictability. The hero is likeable enough, especially with the description and emphasis of the golden eyes with black lashes. The heroine is also decent; Graham writes vulnerable heroines among the best of them. The ending is sweet, but a little abrupt with it's change, guess the book had to ...more

this one was a big disappointment !it bored me so much dat i did not finish the book. emmie was pathetic. a gorgeous n stunning blonde wallowing in self-pity, disguising herself as a dowdy maid. oh yeah poor lil girl, u wud think she had been victim of rape!lol. she was traumatized bcoz her twin was a successful model !? neway we're very far from The Sheikh's Prize which is the twin's story n also one of my favourites.

Two stars for all the times the heroine gave hard time to the hero. Apart from the scene's where the two are fighting or arguing this book has nothing! Let me tell you there sparing was intense and very likeable. But apart from the two the book has very little. the story development was very bad. In a scene both are very uncertain of there feeling, no mention of it a night before and after a night spend apart partying both are confessing love!

"Graham makes this episode in the Marshall Sisters series exciting, intense and full of humor. Her explosive couple - he's arrogant, she's sassy - are great together and the love scenes are award-winning quality." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars

This book was crappy even for a piece of fluff airplane read.
The plot was formulaic but the real problem with the book was the lack of pacing or character development. It seemed as though the author knew she had to get the characters to meet certain points in order to meet Harlequin requirements but she didn't know how to do it.

The only reason I'm giving this a 3 is because the hero, upon finding out that the HR had fallen pregnant, did not immediately pressure her into marriage which is usually the case with most HPs. On the whole, this was not Lynne Graham's best work. I feel like the "relationship" if one could call it such was more physical than anything else.

I've always loved Lynne Graham's books and found The Billionaire's Trophy to be a very quick and easy read. I did feel the ending was very abruptly resolved and finalised. I loved the epilogue where the 3 sister's have a reunion.
