For two years I held Vance Winters off… Right up until the day my fiancé dumped me for his mistress and Vance kissed me senseless.

Vance Winters was six feet of dangerously beautiful mayhem. Wicked blue eyes, tousled blond hair, and golden skin covered in tattoos. Trouble. I should have taken one look and run in the other direction. I should have told him to take his job

The Billionaire's Promise is Vance and Magnolia's story and I am so glad it is finally out! Magnolia/Maggie is Vance’s PA- there to keep his life organized- to really keep him in line and make sure his hung over self gets up in the morning and kicks out the undesireables in the mornings –that’s her tasks. Yet underneath that is the hidden desire that she has for her boss. Maggie deals with his behavior and endless women around the house which he parades around for two years while Maggie has her ...more

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Oh how I loved this one! No major drama but enough to keep you reading and interested. Still no clues about the pictures but the Winters family seems to be getting closer! I loved Vance although he was a total man whore at the beginning and I really didn't think I would like him much. Poor Magnolia just wanted to feel like she had a family. Little Rosalie was too cute and reading them struggling with a baby kind of had me cracking u

Really enjoyed Vance and Magnolia's story. Rosie was an added delight. A reformed alcoholic man-whore who suddenly finds himself sole parent - what can go wrong. I am surprised that Vance didn't admit his feeling for Magnolia sooner than he did. Glad that she finally realised what a loser Brayden was. There are lots of emotions in this book, I admit to shedding a few tears, but it has a happy ending. I look forward to the next book in the series.

I enjoyed, but just couldn't help but be bothered by his man-whoring. I know they weren't together, and she was engaged, but it was still a bit much. Especially after he got sober and was planning on getting rid of her ex anyways, but still slept with other people- even if he had toned it down.

I am voluntarily posting an honest review after reading an ARC copy of this book.

I absolutely loved Billionaire’s Promise (Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaire’s, book 4). I feel like I was let in on a big secret because I have never read any of Ivy Layne’s books…never even came up on my recommendations. I am so happy to have found Ivy Layne. She writes the kind of books that I love; romance, a little suspense, a little drama, a crazy ex, and whole lot of naughty. Of course, before I read Billion

I love The Billionaire's Promise. It's even better than The Billionaire's Pet, which is the book before this one in the series. Vance Winters is an alcoholic, manwhore of an artist who hires Magnolia (Maggie) as his assistant to keep his life in order. She becomes much more than that: his business manager, his best friend and eventually his lover. But, first, her worthless, cheating douchebag of a fiancé has to go.

It's hard notvto like these books. The characters are versatile and interesting with the males being intelligent, sexy, and successful and their women loving, smart and beautiful. Overcoming horrendous events in their lives the Winters family and by extension the Sinclairs are now finding their life partners. There is an element of intrigue and mystery with someone digging up the past and throwing itvin their faces.

I loved this book! This is Vance Winters’ story. He’s in desperate need of a business manager to help him keep his business investments, his Art Shows & everyday life on track. Vance is an alcoholic, partying playboy, so the job won’t be an easy one. Magnolia comes in and decides to give it a try. She is best friends with Vance’s cousin, Charlotte, and also has the biggest jerk of a “fiancé.” She feels an instant attraction to Vance, but focuses closely on her job & her relationship in o ...more

The Billionaire’s Promise by Ivy Layne is a 5 star read.
Troubled by his past, Vance Winters is a hard drinking party boy, but when he needs someone to handle his life for him he hires Magnolia, when his latest girl od’s in his bathroom Vance knows it’s time to stop drinking, with his family and Magnolia behind him he manages to stay off the booze but when he has to reassess his priorities quickly he must learn not take anyone for granted.

Vance has a traumatic past which he deals with by overindulging in alcohol and women. He is a billionaire as well as an accomplished sculptor and when he needs a personal assistant he hires Maggie.

Maggie did not have an easy childhood and the one person who loved her has passed away. Feeling at lose ends she accepts the job from Vance not realizing that one of her responsibilities would be getting rid of the women he brought home the night before. She quickly rebuffed him when he suggested they

Vance Winters was the hot guy with major issues. Issues that carried a lot of baggage and pain that pulled him in directions that were no not healthy for him or to produce a healthy relationship. But somehow he was able to form a very healthy relationship with the right woman. Its just that perfect relationship was friends only.

I am absolutely loving reading about the Winter men! Each character is well developed and the female characters actually contribute to the story. They are all professional women who have a say and a career. It is very refreshing. In the Billionaire's Promise we read about the story of Vance and Magnolia and their navigation through lust, friendship and love... and a very small curve ball. I don't like giving the plot away but I would completely recommend the book and the series. There is the und ...more

This is the next book in Ivy Laine’s Billionaire series, and this one is a real doozy! Magnolia is reeling over her grandmother’s death. She has a doctor boyfriend who sponges off of her, so she decides to apply for a job as an assistant to a billionaire party boy artist who just happens to be great with investments. Though she ends up having to deal with his drinking and having to drag his women du jour out of bed every morning.

I was asked by the author for an honest review.

This book actually impressed me. I wasn't expecting much from the surprise baby/reformed guy story description, but I really liked the book. I liked the characters. I liked Magnolia's extra weight. I liked that Vance and Magnolia weren't perfect.

This book can be read as a stand alone story, but it does have a lot of appearances by other Winters characters in happy relationships so I suspect you'd get more out of it if the series were read in order.

The Winter brothers are back and Magnolia (Maggie) and Vance team up in book four of the Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaires’ Romance. Maggie is working for Vance whose lifestyle is spiraling downward. If not for Maggie, he wouldn’t have survived. Two years later, Maggie is in denial of her love for Vance and Vance is cautious of letting his feelings show. But when Vance’s three month old daughter appears on his doorstep, Vance decides it time to let his feelings known. But with an ex-boyfriend ...more

Vance and Magnolia are perfect for each other, but when they meet she has a boyfriend, and he is about to become her boss. However, the attraction is definitely there. Eventually, the complexities of life force the two of them to spend an exorbitant amount of time together allowing their initial attraction to gain speed. Those same complexities allow Vance and Magnolia to become steadfast friends while headed for a deeper lasting love than they could have ever imagined, for each other, and

I love this family. Each book is standalone, but the underlying mystery of the Winters family is best when you read them in order. This story does a good job of building the history of Vance and Magnolia's relationship. I love them both. Their relationship is a great balance of friendship leading to more. Vance is troubled from his childhood and is battling addiction. Magnolia is a little lost with no family and a lousy boyfriend/fiance. I loved how they provided what the other needed.

These characters are complex and both have their own issues and baggage that influence their actions and effect their relationship.

In this book we get Vance's story. Magnolia and Vance have worked together for over 2 years. Things change when Rosie shows up!

I have this book 5 Stars ✨ because the plot is wonderful, the characters are well developed, it has the right amount steam, and the twist and turns kept my interest peaked and dying for more. I couldn't put the book down when I started reading it.

Ovary explosion

Rosie stole the show and my heart. Magnolia was right, Vance with Rosie = ovary explosion. Ugh, the beginning was rough. I totally felt for Magnolia, having to watch Vance’s parade of bad decisions and usually being the one to clean them up, but in Vance’s defense it would be hard to watch Maggie stay engaged, especially to a total dbag. But the suffering was worth it for the beautiful ending. I mean, that gazebo... the twinkle lights... the tiny house. Swoon. What an adorable st

An artist, his business manager and a baby...

I did like this book but I had issues. Magnolia just irritated me a lot. I didn't dislike her, but then again, I was also not entirely keen on her either. She did come into her own in the last couple of chapters but it was kind of too little too late by then.
I did like Vance but I didn't feel as though there was enough time spent expanding on him as a character. We didn't get to know him as much as we did Magnolia. I guess I wanted more from this book

Baby daddy? Just too adorable. I imagine the author knew what she was doing when she wrote Vance's story... My heart melted every single time Rosie was in Vance's sight. This story felt quite real to me, I loved how the characters were portrayed - Maggie was a strong woman, but was vulnerable, desperate to be someone's world. Vance, Vance, Vance... A beautiful soul with so much love to give.

Loved this book. My only concern was the 'toy'that Vance made for three month old Rosie - metal?
