He thought he could control his hunger. He'd been controlling it for years. But like some underfed, abused beast, it was out of its cage, and Daniel feared no amount of willpower would hold it back now. Only Monica...

Daniel Lexington is sexy as sin, rich, and completely irresistible; the Prince of The Windy City. He can have any woman he wants. But there's only one woman that he hungers for, but she remains forever out of reach and hands off.

Monica is known as the Ice Princess. She may be s

That was the story i was waiting for, from book 1..
And the prince really delivered!!!
Beautiful story of one and only love..

Daniel was SEXY, amazing, kinky in a nice way, sentimental and strong..
Monica was so wounded on the inside and tough on the outside, tried to hide behind her failed relationships, but all was just a pretence he knew better..
They found their love years ago and now it's their time!!!

I loved so many different moments in this book.. and i really f

I've really enjoyed this short story series. All of these Chicago alpha males have been scorching hot playboys that all fall head over heels in love and realize all the playing they've been doing was just a past time to finding the girl of their dreams. The thing I've enjoyed the most about this series, is the fact that each book is just barely over 100 pages, but the stories don't seem to be rushed or incomplete. They have plenty of character development, with some backstory, and duel POV's wit ...more

Love this series but couldn't give a five star for two reasons. First, the twist about her mother and Roland was just creepy!! It was gross, ugh. And second, the prior books portrayed Daniel as the kinkiest of them all. Talking about what he did to girls up in his locked fortress. But where was the kink?? Just tying a woman up is not kink and especially for the reasons he did it. I still liked him but, I was looking forward to kink!!!

I loved every bit of this novella! It was steamy, full of pent up tension and spark, and it had two characters that I loved getting to experience. The story was real and raw and intense and I loved it. I have really enjoyed reading the series, and I can't wait to see what the last book will bring these characters. I found Monica and Daniel to be such an enjoyable characters to get to know and fall for, and their story is not one to be missed!

Daniel Lexington billionaire, known as the prince of Chicago is the hero in this edition of the billionaires club series. Daniel, tall and blond with green eyes is the dream man of many women. But even though Daniel has had many women in his life, there is only one woman he wants, and that is Monica Davenport. They've known each other since childhood, Monica's history is quite tragic, causing her to keep a tight hold on her emotions. Hence the press have named her the ice maiden. Monica

Daniel who is the brother of Chloe (from book 1) is a playboy and not good at keeping woman. He likes to play but does not like to stay. His long time friend Monica asks for his help. She has been having problems in the bedroom and she wants her friend to see what he could do to help her get out of her head while having sex. The problem was once they get a taste for each other they did not want to stop. Of course there are problems - Daniel with commitment and Monica believing that he could comm ...more

Each one of these seem to get better and better. Maybe it's because we have seen glimpses of the men throughout the earlier books - or if the general progression of the author's growth... who knows...

So lets dive into the story of Daniel and Monica. Childhood friends that are linked together through a past that is entwined with first crushes and support when things fall apart. Both business savvy and both still friends after all these years. Daniel is the Prince of Chicago, one of the most sough

Hell! This stories keep coming more and more perfect. It have so much action, funny scenes and hot scenes that I barely cannot put it down. I never thought that Daniel had this side of him.

As I said, this time was the time of Daniel Lexington and our woman is Monica Davenport is the winner. I can say that she was the winner long time ago thanks to their backgrounds. They knew each other for years and love each other for years too, but neither of them want to say it to the other. Basically that w

I cannot get enough of these books. They are steamy, short, well written and I absolutely love them. As I have said before, they are somewhat out of this world with the Billionaires and their over-the-top security systems and Bugatti's. But I don't always dive into a book to read about REAL life. The fantasy of the rich and hunky is part of the appeal. The unflappable king of non-commitment, Daniel Lexington, is in love? What?! Awwww. And the Ice-Queen herself is his one lost love!? Can you say ...more
This was well on its way to be being a three or four star. Daniel is an awesome, kickass, alpha bad boy with a melting heart. Monica, the Ice Queen, is a shutdown girl who goes to her BF to enjoy sex. She's shut down due to a horrific family tragedy.

The Prince and the Princess are best friends for like forever. They can talk to each other, have meals together, board meetings but neither has ever thought of the other as "the one", until.....
Now once they get their hands on each other the Prince teaches the Princess a thing or twelve in bed. Okay they aren't really a prince or princess but as the story is told they make you think that if it was a fairytale they would be just that. I love Daniel's character. He is the epitome of the sexy good

Each book in this series just keeps getting better. Since we aren't going to find real men like this we have to live through the eyes of Red Garnier and her sexy, wonderful billionare hotties. Daniel doesn't seem to have as much kink factor as his friends but his story is no less captivating. To have loved your best friend your whole life and have your dream come into reality just makes the story all that more enticing. I look forward to the next book in the series and recommend to one and all.

"You seem to be mistaking me for one of your elderly lapdogs. I'm not a man to be ordered around, not even by you, but now that you're making demands of me, then I'll gladly issue some demands of my own. The first one is, don't you ever, ever, say his name to me again as long as I'm fucking you. I may be your friend, but I'm also your lover. It's my name you call when you come. It's my eyes you look into when you're begging and writhing. It's me you wanted to fuck last night, me you wanted to fu

I thought the book before this one was my favorite in this series, but that was until I read this one. Red Garnier is fast becoming one of my favorite authors.

Daniel and Monica were friends - both secretly in love with the other. They both hide under a facade to keep their feelings hidden from the public. When they come together as a couple, they are explosive ... scorching hot and their happily ever after inevitable.

Really good story, I liked it a lot, they just keep getting better as they go. Daniel & Monica are a great couple. I like how Red Garnier makes her books look short but when you actually look at them her chapters are long, anywhere from 43 to 113 pages long. Her book might only have 5 or 6 chapters in it but they are long & completely filled chapters. I like her style.

This was probably my least favorite, if I can say that - I do love Daniel, but Monica's whole reasoning was unsound to me.
Of course it conveniently allowed for some intense longing and angst, but that felt contrived.

I guess I just wasn't entirely convinced/follow the "logical conclusion" Monica made on why she should be an "ice princess."

Really great book! My god, this man.... They are just perfect. When they want something they pursue it, respect it no matter what even if they get hurt, Daniel is one of them. Loving someone for so many years and trying to not pressure that someone when he gets his chance, he's actually in heaven! Love it!

I really do like this series. I don't why I am so engrossed in the billionaire theme, I guess it is my way of avoiding reality for a bit. Daniel and Monica are a great couple that have been in love for years -- since they were kids. It's a nice story of finally admitting that and overcoming obstacles from each of their pasts.
Apr 08, 2014 rated it did not like it
Novellas just don't do it for me far too rushed, though I liked the characters it was just too short and going over the same emotions they were feeling got a bit boring. I ended up skim reading this in 1 hour! Says a lot about the book! Disappointing and I think the author missed a chance to write a book and not a novella on these characters...

She did it again this was another hot book from the series. Red garnier is a wonderful author. She holds your interest and makes you feel hot, hot, hot. She gives you an insight of all relationships on how they find love. Good book!

A decent 4 star read

I enjoyed Monica and Daniel's story. For a decent length novella it's a quick and HOT read!

There's plenty of good sex scenes, I particularly enjoyed their foreplay at the photshoot - yummy!

Look no further than Daniel if you need a hot alpha read.

Well, reading this was a pleasant surprise. Daniel's vulnerability and willingness to be with Monica right from the very beginning was a refreshing change from all the billionaire alphaholes I've been reading.

This was ok. I expected Daniel to be a bit darker and more intense based on the perception given in the previous books. I didn't feel the chemistry between him and Monica was as hot as it was in some of the others in this series.
