London Montgomery is a highly sought after hotel reviewer for Elite Travel and Life Magazine, writing under the name of L.M. Cipriano. To make sure she doesn’t get any special treatments when she goes into hotels, her true identity is kept strictly confidential. After years of saving money, she

The Book Junkie Reads . . .
London’s secret was out, even before she hit the ground. She knows a secret also. Mateu is not just a simple tour guide seeking to make some change. He was the CEO of the very hotel that she came to experience and write about. But the thing was that this was just a chance to make herself have the fun that she so richly deserved. She was a hard-working woman.

This read was rich, warm and full of things specific to Barcelona. I loved the history brought in to make things feel more authentic. The s

This book is SO beautiful. Not only the sweet, funny, and passionate love story, but the descriptions of Barcelona. I will never make it to Barcelona, but I feel as though I have been there thanks to Ms. Meredith's gorgeous, descriptive writing.

Even without the glorious descriptions of the city of Barcelona, this book is a five star read because of the characters that drive it. MK Meredith has an incredible way of taking a situation that is not one of my favorites (in this case two main charact

Playing the Spanish Billionaire is both sweet and hot. London is on a desperately needed vacation to Spain when she meets Mateu, a hot local who ends up taking her on a vacation of a lifetime. London's finally able to relax and not worry so much about her mother and paying for their bills, and she has a check list of what this vacation should be composed of. Number 1 on her list? Kiss a hot Spaniard. Cue the hottie Spaniard, Mateu!

But, in reality, things are not quite as simple as that. Mateu ha

London Montgomery has been saving for years for her dream vacation. London writes reviews for Elite Travel magazine, so she is constantly on the go evaluating hotels and their amenities. She rarely gets out to experience the places she travels to, so she has a "bucket list" of things she wants to do while on vacation--including kissing a Spaniard.

Mateu is the CEO of the hotel chain where London is staying. He finds out she's coming to visit under a false name and thinks she's coming to do a surp

Be still my sobbing heart. Or suck it up. Anything other than this blubbering mess into which I'd morphed by the end of this book. Because ERMAGERD.

Beautifully seductive, PLAYING THE SPANISH BILLIONAIRE is one of those deliciously enticing, let-the-world-just-wait-because-I-will-die-without-one-more-page must-read romances, and then you've hit the end and it's both the best and the worst thing ever because OMG THOSE CHARACTERS.

Barcelona is an enchanted setting for this romance. There's the beautiful ocean, historic buildings, the Erotic Museum of Barcelona as well as the Catalan culture and language. The ambiance and characters that populate this book are definitely an integral part of the background. I really enjoyed the colorful people as well as the background of Barcelona.

I loved Playing The Spanish Billionaire by MK Meredith. Mateu and London had plenty of chemistry and made me interested in their story. Meateu is the CEO of a luxurious hotel and prides himself on delivering an amazing experience. He needs the hotel to receive five stars, so when he finds out who the hotel reviewer is, he offers himself up as the tour guide. Keep in mind, she has no idea that he the CEO of the hotel she’s reviewing. When London realizes who Meateu really is, will that be it betw ...more

I loved this story. It had such a sensual and beautiful feel to it the entire time I was reading it. Mateu was the complete Latin lover package. While I did not like his deceit, he made up for it in the end. My heart hurt for London and all she was going through with her mom. She was strong, but very weary. I admired her do-whatever-it-takes-for-my-mom attitude. I loved the ending and got a little teary eyed. I only wish there was an epilogue because I would love a glimpse of their life in the f ...more

I love books written by MK Meredith and Playing the Spanish Billionaire may be my favorite. Mateu needs a five star review for his hotel so he can spend more time helping his family. He learns that London, a noted hotel reviewer, is staying at his hotel and decided to wine and dine her into a good review. London is taking a much needed vacation in Barcelona, her first no work trip in years. She meets handsome Mareu within minutes of getting into Barcelona, only to quickly learn his identity.

Loved! This is a delicious story that starts with London arriving in Barcelona for her dream vacation of a lifetime. Upon arrival, an urchin swipes her luggage and a handsome local man gets it back for her. They begin to speak and are both a bit smitten.

London is a professional hotel reviewer and is published under an alias. Unfortunately, one of Mateu's employees knows her alias and has tipped him off to who she is. Thus begins an elaborate deceit - Mateu's of his true purpose in wining and din

Playing the Spanish Billionaire by MK Meredith is a Spanish Adventure set in the heart of Barcelona.

From the quant streets sprinkled with restaurants and shops to the majestic landscape, MK has masterfully captured its beauty, aroma and sensual gastronomic experience. If you’ve never been, this book will leave you craving the many flavors of this Mediterranean city. I will never experience a tomato the same way again 😉

A must read!

The Catalan and The Vacationer

I enjoyed this story of London and Mateu and their connection. Learning about the Catalan culture in Barcelona was intriguing and I loved the storyline. I loved watching their adventure grow and how they overcame their doubts and fell in love. Would highly recommend this read. I couldn't put it down.

Once again, I was mesmerized by a story by MK Meredith. The story played itself out in my heart, keeping me motionless while reading it. I loved meeting London and Mateu and their electricity was apparent from their first meeting.
The chemistry is fun to watch --- and the battles they wage within themselves.
The ending is unexpected, but enjoyable none the less. I laughed and cried throughput the book.
I hope there will be more books in this series.

Unfortunately Barcelona was shown in a negative light for me. Too much emphasis was put on how unsafe it is to not keep an iron hold on your belongings at all times, for fear that they might be stolen. It is referenced a few times. One of the times was rather comical, maybe that should have been the only time mentioned.
Mateu and London are both keeping the identity of their jobs secret from each other. Because of this, there are so many misunderstood moments. Mateu is a proud man. So it is hard

MK Meredith made me want to go to Barcelona, the setting for this wonderful romance. Her characters were wonderful and the descriptions so vivid, I felt like I was part of the story. I loved the dynamics between the hot Alpha male and the Sassy, independent female.
I enjoyed my time with this book. I felt like I was on a vacation while I was reading it.

I love MK Meredith's books. Playing the Spanish Billionaire was no different. London and Mateu have secrets they are keeping from each other and are using each other for their own purposes. Neither of them were supposed to grow close to each other but they do. Reading about all the fun London was having discovering Barcelona with Mateu makes me want to go to Barcelona.

This was a great read, it was fun, sweet, hot and interesting. I love the descriptions of Barcelona and it made me want to go back there and see it in another way after reading this book.

London and Mateu is both lying to each other when they meet. They spend time together and develop feelings for each other. Can they come clean and will they ever trust each other after all the lying?

Enter the sexy Mateu who retrieves her luggage and takes off with her heart.

Another wonderful love story by M.K. Meredith!! I was pulled in to this book from the beginning and had a hard time putting it down. M.K. Meredith has a way with words and descriptions that made me feel like I had been to Barcelona with Mateu and London. I loved how the story unfolded with them both trying to fight the feelings that were simmering between them. I loved the playful teasing and banter between the both of them and the ending was surprising but terrific!!

This vacation to Barcelona is a once in a lifetime event for London Montgomery. She's also a hotel reviewer of Elite Life and Travel Magazine. When Mateu Espasa, CEO of the Huntington Hotel of Barcelona, discovers who she is, he's determined to give her an experience she'll never forget. The more time they spend together, the more they have to fight the attraction that begins as a simmering heat but eventually erupts like a valcano!

I never thought that I should put kissing a Catalan should be on my bucket list, but after reading MK Meredith’s latest, Playing the Spanish Billionaire, my list has definitely been amended. Mateu drew me in with his love of family and good heart. Both he and London were willing to put their love of family over anything. While it takes a while to sort out their game of cat and mouse the ending is perfect. I really enjoyed these characters. I also loved the very brief cameo at the end. Meredith i

"Mateu...I like the sound of it. What does it mean?" He smiled. "Gift of God". Umm - yes, this is quite fitting of Mateu Espasa. This story is the quintessential story of doing the wrong thing for the right reasons. London Montgomery is my favorite heroine - beautiful, strong and smart. Her trip to Barcelona, as well as her "things to do list" while there, certainly makes me want to visit!

With these two, the untruths continue to become a tangled mess while they fall deeper into to real feelings
