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

Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back.

Brontë, a waitress in Kansas City, doesn't have much money on her hands - so she's thrilled when she wins a free vacation to an island resort, Seaturtle Cay, from a radio station. Even if her traveling companion is highly inconsiderate and annoying, and the place looks a little rundown. But the odds aren't in her favor. A hurricane hits the resort when she's staying there, and while helping her absentminded and self-ce

I always love reading Jessica Clare’s books and I know I can count on her to deliver a captivating and entertaining story. And this first installment in Billionaire Boys Club series didn't disappoint. I was ultimately pleased with almost everything about it.

This is a love story of Logan Hawkings and Brontë Dawson, two completely different people from a totally different world who were brought together by a natural d

***4.25 Stars***

"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."

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

Bronte Dawson doesn't live above her means, she is a small town waitress who wins a "dream vacation" at a private island resort, her dream vacation turns into a nightmare when she ends up stranded in an elevator in the middle of a hurricane with a complete stranger Logan Hawkings. Bronte thinks Logan is the manager of the hotel and finds some comfort that she's not alone.

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".

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

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 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.

I am so fucking done with this book.

Logan is an asshole, the author slaps us with his emotional baggage ALL THE TIME in an effort to win sympathy for this bastard but all she succeeds in doing is annoying me. Bronte (what kind of name is that?) can't seem to get it straight that the real problem between them is that he is a dismissive asshole who lied to her and now wants her to cluck and caw just like all the rest of the women he so abhors, you know the gold diggers.

Overall this book was above average but I will say it seemed really farfetched for the first maybe 40%. Definitely fantasy.

I liked how Bronte didn’t bow to Logan’s billionaire status and she held him accountable for his actions or maybe lack-there-of. On the other side, I did NOT like that she allowed her travel mate to treat her like crap and then when she returned back home she still did not confront that horrible girl.

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 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.

Heroine (Bronte): 24yrs old
Hero (Logan): 29yrs old

Best Line: “Whatever you want to do, Brontë, I’ll do it.” – even though she was the one who kept giving in to him

Worst Line: “She hadn’t been the most skilled of his lovers—he suspected the Ukrainian ballet dancer would forever hold that spot—but she’d been the most open and honest one.”

I was wary to read this because the plot and the title screams Mills & Boon to me and that is not a good thing.

But much to my surprise, it was anything but like M&B.

It was a fun, sweet, sexy read. Think of it like a modern day Cinderella story but with hurricane and sans glass slippers. It didn't take me more than a day to 'feast' on this sexy sucker.

I like Bronte a lot. Her wits and quips are charming. I like that she is no damsel in distress.
