Apparently, I have a sweet tooth I didn't know about because Sebastian totally won me over with his sweet beta ways.

Chelsea Hall is a part-time artisan soap maker by day and a roller derby superstar by night. She meets billionaire Sebastian Cabral when she was paired with him for her best friend's upcoming wedding. For the first time in a long time Chelsea felt safe with Sebastian.

For his part, Sebastian just wants peace and quiet. He's a very private person and reluctant to take part in his f

Fans of sweet romance with a sexy kick and beta heroes will adore this latest from the fabulous Jessica Clare.
This was my first book in the series by this author, and I had absolutely no issues picking this up 3 books in. I immediately grew a liking to the heroine, Chelsea Hall. This is clearly a woman with some cracks, but she's by no means broken. At least not in my opinion. She was strong in her own right, but I also absolutely loved her vulnerable side. This is someone that's been th

- Enjoyable series : Ms. Clare has been one of my go-to authors when I need a light, fun read and this series in particular has been a great little bit of billionaire romance fantasy. The interweaving friendships between the couples and it being centered around Hunter and Gretchen’s wedding has been fun and seeing certain scenes from different perspectives is a great little bonus.

- This is quirky to the nth degree : When this story begins, Sebastian is finding out the crass and horrible new
Wow! Supportive, strong and sexy hero with a sassy, emotionally damaged and struggling heroine.

Jessica Clare's "Billionaire and Bridesmaids" series is very hit or miss with me. I have noticed that the Billionaires and Bridesmaids series is all about Gretchen and Hunter, the Beast of Beauty and the Billionaire and their attendees.

I have a nanowrimo to write so I'm keeping this short.

I am between 4 and 5 stars for this book. And at the end decided on giving 5 stars.

I am amazed with Miss Clare. On how she can make a horrible, horrific event becoming a fun and sweet healing without losing the sensitivity of the topic. She creates Chelsea. She is a kick ass character. She is vulnerable, strong and brave woman. She takes charge when she is needed too. I love she is showing her vulnerable side to Sebastian.

Sebastian is a character of patience man. The perfect patience man. Plus

My first Jessica Clare Billionaires book and certainly not my last. The Billionaire Takes a Bride provides a uniquely, zany story about a woman broken after a terrible tragedy and the Billionaire who takes exemplary notice. Sebastian Cabral and Chelsea Hall need each other for more than just the quickie marriage they arrange to solve their problem

This was such a great story, really entertaining and super hot! Sebastian is the sweetest! I love him. :-)

I think Sebastian has got to be one of the most amazing guys ever. He was awesome! So supportive and loving and I just wanted to squeeze him and hug him. I loved Chelsea. She was so strong and a little broken but her heart was in the right place and she got stronger every day, she had a great attitude. I love how Sebastian was there for her. They had such a great attraction but on different

Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup.

Oh wow! Clare delivered a spectacular romance that had me completely invested and rooting so hard for these two to find love, passion and healing. I was expecting a fun light hearted read. A little fluffy sexy romp. And I totally got some of that--yay! But there was so much more, too, as Sebastian and Chelsea become each other's safety dates to survive the ordeal of a friend's wedding and found so more than either was looking

This series is killing me! I can't take it every time I read one of the books I fall for the Billionaire, then the next book comes out and Darn you Jessica Clare I find myself loving the newest Billionaire more. I was so ready to HATE Chelsea. I mean a hot girl who does Roller Derby is not worthy of my time, I mean the billionaires time. But she was written so perfectly I fell in love with her too.

Sebastian is a caring type of man, who will give up control to put his girl at ease. I couldn't help but fall in love with him. He rather hold her and have blue balls forever rather than let her feel diminished because of something that was not her fault. Sebastian meets Chelsea at their mutual friends engagement party.

Chelsea has trust issues regarding men, but feels comfortable around Sebastian and they become fast friends. Chelsea is brave , sexy, and a bad ass roller der

Jessica Clare’s billionaire reads are with a doubt always auto-buy books for me, because she just never disappoints! She has such a talent for writing entertaining books – she takes these tropes and spins them in a unique, fun, and sexy way… I love them! The Billionaire Takes a Bride is Jessica Clare’s newest billionaire release, and is an utterly enjoyable, hilarious, heartwarming read.

Calling all fans of sweet romance...Jessica Clare's third installment to The Billionaire and Bridesmaid's Series will satisfy your hunger!!! The Billionaire Takes a Bride has one of the sweetest beta hero, who will leave you swooning on how perfect, patient, understanding, and loving he is. Usually when we think of billionaires, they are usually identified as arrogant, dominant, in control, and total alpha but in this book, Ms. Clare made

When it comes to Billionaire stories, I have to admit I am a sucker. I love the whole concept and this one offers a unique concept and story that you will not want to put down.

The author is well known for her books under several different author names and I was surprised at how many books she has written. When I first agreed to review this book, I did not realize I had read others by Jessica Clare, but I have and I was excited to see mention of other characters toward the end of the book that t

Jessica Clare (aka Jessica Sims aka Jill Myles) does it again with this fabulous billionaire romance that's both fluffy-fun and incredibly sweet... "It" being taking a cheese-y billionaire romance idea and reinventing it into the best kind of guilty pleasure read that is just plain delightful to immerse yourself in.

The Billionaire Takes a Bride was the first book I have read in this series and while I enjoyed it overall, I found most of the book boring. I think for me the biggest problem I had was Chelsea's issue with intimacy. It's understandable after what she suffered but I feel it hurt the story because it just dragged. Sebastian was sweet but unfortunately to sweet for my taste. With that said I would still like to go back and read books 1 & 2.

Hero is deeply in love, heroine is deeply in love. But heroine has a traumatic past. And likes to play derby.

It was an enjoyable read. I really didn't like the reality show plotline. But it was nice to read about a hero who was patient and kind.

The Billionaire Takes a Bride (Billionaires and Bridesmaids #3) by Jessica Clare is the first book in this on-going series that I’ve read (Even though I didn’t read book 1 and 2, I wasn’t lost). I’m so glad I decided to pick this one up because it’s a fantastic read. It’s an engaging romance with a cute plot and enough uniqueness that really kept me reading to the point I didn’t want to stop.

The Billionaire Takes a Bride: Empowering through Derby
There are aspects of this story that are well-done, and others that are hard to suspend disbelief for, but their very outlandishness makes the story work. That hyperbole is mostly about Sebastian’s family. His mother and siblings were fame grasping “reality” TV stars who would make the antics of the Kardashians seem like, well, reality. His father is a sweet elderly man who adores his wi

Billionaire Sebastian Cabral is used to crazy. Some days he thinks his family invented the term ‘family drama’. While he loves his family, he doesn’t love their scripted reality show, The Cabral Empire, and he does whatever he can to stay out of their “phony” drama and out of camera range. But this year, his mother has an idea to draw in the ratings…rekindle the relationship with his attention whore ex-girlfriend.

This is one of a spin-off series from Clare's Billionaire Boy's Club series. They're not great, but they are my book crack. They are the Little Debbie Christmas tree cakes of the snack world. They're not even that good, are loaded with empty calories and trans fats, but darn if I'm not purposefully restraining myself from devouring the whole box. I'm not sure these are even contemporary romance as much as total adult fairy tale.

Awful, headache-inducing.
Everything that could be wrong with this book was wrong. This is fiction, but its so poorly conceived, once again making the heroine a victim of a violent and awful crime, proceeding to her being magically cured (but she really wasn't, she told us many times), and then when she finally had the chance to bring her assault and attacker to justice, made it all about the hero's feelings. And then there was the perpetually bruising of the same heroine, who was excessively spo

Decent. I liked the element of his family being a reality TV family. She was a roller derby girl so that was different. He was a really nice guy but he was basically just a rich layabout which is not really how I prefer my heroes. Liked it well enough I might check out the rest of the series.
