So this one really didn't work for me. I had to push myself to finish it and the only reason I even bothered to do that was because I got it as an ARC. I did not like anyone in this book except for maybe Meryl, Blake's mom who we didn't get enough scenes with in my opinion.

Let's start with the storyline, I'm not going to say much about it because it's one that's been done a lot. Billionaire needs fake girlfriend, plucks an average girl off the streets and tells her he'll make all her money trou

Blake's voice is commanding. "You

"That's none of your business."
"I bumped into you. That makes your

My last few books didn't really hit my reading sweet spot, so I'm thrilled that this book has reset my reading streak! I read all four parts at once as part of this complete story rather than when they were released separately (not a fan of that). For me, it kept me in the story and it flowed seamlessly.

This story is fairly simple and straightforward. Blake needs a fake girlfriend (view spoiler). Kat's parents died when she was 18 and sh
*I received a copy of this book for an honest review.*

First off Thank you so much Crystal for bringing this book to my attention! I absolutely fail in LOVE with Blake and Kat. Blake is the billionaire CEO who is in search of a woman to be his fake girlfriend in help of bettering his reputation. Kat is the luck waitress who runs smack into Blake on her way out of an interview. Little does Kat know that running into Blake will help her with all her financial issues.

Love will find a way!

This is a story of a chance encounter quickly becoming something more. I was intrigued by the arrangement between Kat and Blake, and I couldn't wait to see how their relationship evolved from "business" to "pleasure."

I liked that Kat was (mostly) level-headed and made sure to remind herself that her arrangement with Blake was strictly platonic. Blake also kept himself detached...or did he?

At times, the love scenes sort of killed it for me. Not that they weren't steamy, but t
I keep getting tricked into reading these books thinking they're romances and then SURPRISE EROTICA!

Ugh. Sexy times are good and all that, but the problem with the erotica I've run into so far is they tend to be 90% sex at the expense of actual story. Sometimes it doesn't even make sense, as long as the author can fit some sex in.

I actually found this book entertaining and read up to the end of Chapter Two, at which point it very suddenly--without warning--leaped into voyeuristic phone sex/ mas

I read The Billionaire's Deal in one seating! I love this cliché story of one being hired by another and they end up falling in love, specially if it’s a historical romance! If you’re looking for a good billionaire story, this is it.

However, I had trouble relating to Katrina as she was pretty rude sometimes. Let me tell you that I’m very tired of alpha males lately, but Blake won me over! Sex scenes were very repetitive and I found myself skipping them around - what is probably the 4th part.

3.5 stars

I really didn't like Blake. He was a little too much like a Dom wanna-be. I'm not saying he was hot and all alpha sexy, but just not much else there. Kat and her sister, Lizzy, were great. I'm glad Kat held out for everything. Tears were shed for his mom, but his sister I just wanted to smack upside the head. Now his buddy, Declan, I want to know more about.

Wow. Wow. Wow!! You think when you've read about one Billionaire you've read them all but that is not the deal.
The deal is Blake is one hot billionaire that will change not only his own life but the life of Kat.

Kat has a sad story to tell now looking after her younger sister, making sure she stays on the right path and studies hard so she has more options in life.
She works very hard trying to pay the bills and always looking for better paid jobs. Waitr

Stars: 4

Overall: Kat is walking out of a job interview that she didn't get, when she literately runs into one of the most handsome men she has ever seen. Blake helps her out after she twists her ankle and asks that she calls in a day or so to let him know how she is doing. Well Kat decides that she is not calling him and he shows up at her job and makes her a proposal that she can't turn down. Her parents died three years prior

Episode one; the encounter of Blake and Kat is typical (billionaire male knocks over poor girl & offers indecent proposal)
Blake is blasé, timid, aloof but intriguing.
Kat is determined, strong-willed, and inundated with her life's direction. She becomes scattered, overwhelmed, feeble with Blake's intensity.
Their individual family values, solidarity locks them into a contract & interpersonal relationship...
Their sexual encounters are steamy but very detached (in this episode). The story ends wi

This story is an enjoyable slide into a paradise where the billionaire's feeling are locked down tight and the heroine slips into a situation that she can't turn down. There were parts of this story I absolutely adored - especially when Blake's eyes showed a little vulnerability or any scene with Meryl, Blake's mother. I loved that woman with a fierce passion.

However, there were parts that also faltered for me. Lots of repetition had me skipping over some words and skimming some scenes. And I l

I was given this series for my honest review

This is the 4th book in this series and should be read in order.

I can feel Blake staring at me, examining me, but I press on. “I was a stupid teenager. Life felt long. I couldn’t wait until I’d finally graduate high school, then college. I couldn’t wait to be independent. Funny how quickly I became independent.” Kat

This story reminds me of a Pretty Woman story meets Fifty Shades kind of book. This was just an okay read for me. Knowing she cares for the hero, the heroine still agrees to his deal of getting money to pretend to be in love with him and getting married to him for his dying mother. Only the plan starts to falter when she falls in love with him and the guilt starts to eat at her. The hero is a dominant and has difficulty showing his emotions. After a few bumps in the road, they both finally get w ...more

This book was free on Amazon. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. It was just ok.

What I liked:
* It was a sweet story, and a quick read.
* The plot itself was good (I do love a marriage of convenience plot)
* I liked Blake and I loved his mother Meryl

What I didn't like:
* I just didn't feel the connection between the two main characters.
* I didn't particularly like Kat
* I never felt like Blake had truly opened up to Kat. I would have liked to have seen a more dramatic change in the character

Copy provided by author.

I really really loved this book.
Blake was a little too emotion-less for my liking but i still loved his character.
I loved Kat and her sister too. I didn't like Fiona at all.

The story overall was great. In some scenes I desperately wanted a POV of Blake but it was fine. I loved this series and the epilogue was very sweet.

I would definitely recommend it. :)

Ever since Kat's parents died in a car accident, Kat has not had a break in life. She has had to take care of her younger sister, Lizzy, and find a way to support both of themselves. Kat wasn't able to go to college or enjoy the last few days in high school, but instead has been struggling to find a good job to help pay the bills and the house mortage.

For the sake of not ruining your read, I will be reviewing each episode separately, so if you don't want spoilers don't read all the through.

If you were given the opportunity to make a difference to your lowly life by taking a "job" or an agreement to pretend to be in a loving relationship with someone you barely know for more money than you knew what to with, would you do it? This is the story of billionaire Blake Sterling and poor girl Kat Wilder

This book has potential. I don't think we find out enough about Blake. There's just no backstory to him. Every time someone starts to mention his background, they decide it's better off left in the past. NOT IT'S NOT!!!!

Kat. Jeez. Make up your mind. You want him, you don't want him. You love him, you can't love him. Oy. Pick something and stick to your guns, girlie!!!

Blake's mother Meryl. She's a peach and loveable, but she's hardly in any scenes. I think we could have done with less of his sis

I enjoyed the story, but I didn't connect when reading it. I read the entire book hoping it would have gotten better but it did not. I have read alot of alpha male romance- Blake wasnt it. I felt this story was more for newbie readers just getting into reading dirty novels. What annoyed me most of all are the the author many usage of words......excited, excited, excited- when not necessary.

The guy is gorgeous. He tried to help her but she is independent. His name is Blake. He gives her his business card and tells her to call him if she doesn't get better.

Maybe the best one I ever red up till now!
One which is a page turner and it got me into reading every spare minute available!
until the end.
One full of emotions, intrigues, atrraction, lust! heat!love!
But the books is strong and valueble because of its deep psychological character
which makes the book for me splendid! or to say of great level!

This book was really choppy. She tells him she loves home and boom 24 hours later revelation, resolution and happily ever after. When they have had sooooo many issues with him feeling any form of deeper emotions. Yes she had already split up with him and he "cared deeply for her but was showing no signs of saying the big "L" word and then all of a sudden......I just didn't like it. I read the sisters (Lizzy's) story first and it was much better than this one.
