ARC provided by the author.
I admit, when I started reading this book, I was like "what is this?" There's a poor horse who's being beaten for God's sake!! But I went over the first chapter and things began to make sense.
Outback Billionaire takes place in Australia, alternating between Sydney and the Outback. The book follows the love journey of a big cattle station owner Jack and a wannabe actress Marlo. Jack has lost one of his eyes during his childhood because of cancer and is afraid of getting

I received an ARC for an honest review. This was a sweet story about two people who met by chance and developed a friendly relationship that grew into something deeper. There was a slow but interesting start but it was quickly filled with lots of emotional circumstances. Marlo and Jack, the main characters, were easy to like and were made a great couple. They were there for each other in their time of need and developed a strong bond.
I could easily see this story playing out as a cute Lifetime m

From an Aussie perspective, I have at last read a book about Australia, which paints the Outback truly as it is.
The characters are as big and bold, as the guys that work and play, just as hard, with only a pinch of bullshit applied.
I can only recommend this book to you, as a really good read.

Nikki Steele has released a well written book, that has some twists and lots of exciting reading!

Nikki Steele has managed to write a book containing lots of chemistry between the characters. Nothing is forced and their relationship develops over time. Makes it kind of realistic.
The problems the characters have could be everyday problems, and that only makes reading the book even better.
The plot is not that surprising but I loved it anyway. In spite of the story is about horses, cattle a

This book was quite a different kind of read for me and not the usual billionaire wooing beauty that you see every day. This was so much more. This was the story of broken dreams and brokenness of body and heart/mind. Marley thinks she is working toward that big Hollywood gig but her fiancée is not the manager he claims to be. He is a lying, cheating dirtbag but Marley finds that out too late. Jack is the billionaire but

I loved it but...
The romance itself was 5 stars - I loved their story - I loved how he showed her a whole world she did not know existed and in return, she gave him the tools, as well as a feeling of completeness to fill the void he did not know, was even there.
The reason for the loss of stars -
A lot of it left me asking myself WHY???
Just occurrences and settings that did not make any sense - what was she doing in Australia, how did Adam get away with it without her noticing.

I have read quite a few Nikki Steele books and I have always enjoyed them, but I have to say that this one Is my favorite. Jack and Marlo didn't have a fairy tale romance. They both had issues that they had to over come. Through it all you are hoping that they get what they deserve, each other. ...more

This fun outback adventure takes a wannabe actress who can calm almost any animal and drops her in the middle of a station. Add a owner who is has a short temper and see what happens.

"A romantic, almost poetic, novel to consume you entirely!"

It amazes me how unexpectedly the love can blooms and, ultimately, it can never be controlled or taken apart by the decisions the others might took. It's how this beautiful world was created after all!

I was provided with an ARC advanced copy by the author for exchange of my honest review. Thank you so much for giving me the chance Nikki!

Outback Billionaire by Nikki Steel a great five star read. I was a little hesitant at first reading this book, as it didn’t seem like anything I would normally read, but once I got started, I couldn’t put it down it was great. Marla is a great woman, she’s an aspiring actress, she hasn’t had the best of luck and seems to have terrible taste in men, one moment where she is kind to a horse will change her life forever. Jack is away from his home in the outback to sell a horse to a circus and see a ...more

Marla moved with her boyfriend/manager and has a really bad job that she doesn't enjoy.
Jack has come into town for his regular check up and to see about selling one of his horses. After witnessing the bad treatment of a horse he changes his mind.
When the two meet can something good come out of all the bad.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This is a beautiful story about two people whose paths crossed at just the right time. Marlo, the American actress being taken advantage personally and professionally and Jack, the Outback billionaire in Sydney for medical reasons. Their story isn't about love at first sight or acting on lust. They are attracted to each but their current circumstances halt any immediate reaction, instead, their relationship progresses organically.

Outback Billionaire features one aspiring American actress, Marlo and an Australian cattle rancher billionaire, Jack. Marlo is a sweet, naive girl who's life is in shambles after catching her fiance/manager in bed with another woman. He leaves her after taking all of her money. Jack is a bad-tempered man who has just had his life upended. A chance encounter brings them together. Both are in a bad place when

I enjoyed this story. It did take me a few chapters to get invested into it though. Jack goes to the doctor and to sell a horse, ends up seeing Marlo. Marlo is stuck in a crap job with a sleezy boyfriend. Jack was a guy you wanted to dislike because he could be rather tough around the edges but once you hear his story it's hard not to fall for him. ...more

I was given this book to read in exchange for an honest review.

It was okay to good at times, other times you are wondering what is happening - primarily in the beginning. I would have loved to have more of a back story on Marla to understand why she shuts down when it comes to the boyfriend/manager and becomes someone that he steam rolls over especially when it comes to her money. Jack, has so much bottled up because of his illness that it makes him hard for me to relate to him.

Thank you Nikki Steele for the ARC in return for my honest review of your book.

If you have a love for and are a fan of romances but are tired of books about the millionaire/billionaire crowd that are filled with pages of descriptions of the glassed walled penthouse apartment he lives in, the beautiful gowns he gives his newest interest, the pomp and circumstance of evenings that end just as he has arranged - with a sky full of fireworks just for her, the lengthy descriptions of his many rare and

Marlo and Jack are the main characters in this book and at its heart, it is a sexy love story. I won’t recap the story as the author writes it so well but I will say this: Jack has his demons, personal ones, and it gives this story its dark side – at least to me. Marlo is a bit wimpy in that she flip flops in making decisions in her life but she, too, has some heavy issues in her past that she needs to work out. Eventually, Jack and Marlo get their HEA, but it is sometimes a hard route to get th ...more

Nikki is a new author to me. I was lucky to get an opportunity to read Outback Billionaire. You or someone you know could probably relate to Jack. No spoilers here so grab a copy of Outback Billionaire.

Jack saves Marlo but in the end will it be Marlo that saves Jack.

Nikki Steele has done it again. I received a copy of this book and couldn’t wait to leave a review. I haven’t read any book she has written that wasn’t absolutely terrific. This time her hero is from Australia and runs an immense cattle station in the Outback. Jack is a solitary sort of person who has a lot of anger he has buried inside himself since he was a child and lost an eye to cancer. Marlo is an American actress who is in a lousy situation because of her fiancé who cares only about himse ...more

Thank you for allowing me to read an ARC. I loved reading about the Outback Billionaire. Jack was dealing with his one demon cancer, however he had a kind heart and soul when it came to how someone treats both human and animal in life. Marlo slipped into his life after her so called friend Adam played her for a fool. The best thing that Marlo did was to move on with her life and agree to work for Jack to get enough money to go back home. Marlo was a force to be reckon with. She proved that she w ...more

This is a very well-written romance. The characters both need to heal from the pain of their past disappointments. I liked how the author really focused on developing the characters so that they felt very real. There is some real sadness to the story but also happiness in finding unexpected love.
