Sissy's Romance Book Review
'The Mistaken Billionaire' by Lexxie Couper is book Two in the "Muse" series. This is the story of Thomas St Clair and Mila Elderkin. I have not yet read the other book so for me this was easily a standalone book.
Mia is on her way to her sister's party but a dog comes running out and she almost hits him. So Mila sees that the name tag on the dog has a nearby address, so she goes to return the dog. When she knocks on the door she sees Thomas on the other side. Thomas thinks she is his hired comp

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Well, I read this book in one day. What does that say? First, I couldn’t put it down. Second, I was enthralled with both Mila and Thomas and just couldn’t get my fill of them. Third, Lexxie Couper knows how to pen a story, keep her readers engaged and on the edge of their seats.

I adored both of these characters and loved that the story was about them. Yes, there were a few supporting characters who were important to the book but weren’t truly highlighted until they were needed to help push the

The Mistaken Billionaire by Lexxie Couper was a sweet and very enjoyable read.

From the first page I was hooked, I loved Mila's character and loved being in her head.
It was fun watching Thomas and Mila together, they entertained me all throughout the book and loved how their relationship unfolded. From mistake in identity to the steamy lovers, these two were perfect for each other.
And if you're like me and love dogs, you will love Reaper, Thomas's adorable dog. He added to my overall en

I don't even know where to start telling you how wonderful this book is. It's absolute GOLD.

From the moment Mina rescues super-famous horror author Thomas St Clair's dog, she knows she's in trouble. Not least because once upon a time, when she was a budding journalist and he was a barely-out-of-his-teens author with a New York Times bestseller, he blew her off when she was assigned to interview him. Exasperated beyond reason, she wrote a brutal exposé on his awful childhood, and then he got her

Loved this one! It's very well done. Great characters, pace, and writing made for an enjoyable read.

Thomas is a writer dealing with a serious case of writer's block. When Mila knocks on his door he assumes it's the date his assistant set up for him for the charity event he needs to attend. Really she's only there to return his dog. If she had known who lived at the house she probably would never have knocked. They have a bit of ugly history between them and although he's never actually met Mila

Lexxie Couper makes me happy LOL

The Mistaken Billionaire was a terrific. The case of mistaken identity gone awry! Lemme just tell you the fun this book was ... so Thomas has writer's block and is ridiculously frustrated but one look at Mila and poof block no more. He also is under the impression that Mila is his hired escort for the charity event he is attending the evening he meets her. .... Now Mila, okay, she is just a woman holding a lost dog at Thomas' front door. She's not an escort. But

Mila is a teacher now, and she loves it, but her first career choice was journalism...until her dreams were destroyed by an upcoming writer. She loves her students and is willing to do anything to ensure they have everything they need, including dressing up an attending a wrap party for her sister, Josie. Now if she'd only have read the directions correctly, and didn't stop abruptly to avoid a dog, and follow him to make sure he was okay. After finding him, and getting knocked over by the happy ...more

Enemies who have never met? A muse with a secret? The Mistaken Billionaire is the story of an author with writers block and a woman whose life he ruined years ago.

Thomas St. Clair skyrocketed to literary fame early in his life. Mila wanted to be a reporter for the New York Times more than anything. Writing an article about St. Clair was going to be her ticket. Except, he never met with her, gave her any info, or participated in the interview in any way. So, she became and investigator and found

I am beaming from head to toe after reading this book. Being a huge Lexxie Couper fan, I can say next to Love’s Rhythm, it’s her best work. The character development was spot on and I found myself smiling every single time I swiped my ereader.

The one thing I love about Lexxie’s works is she somehow weaves beloved characters from her other ones in the current story line. You find yourself sitting straighter and giggling at a mention of one of them, and then feel as if you just had a happy reunion

I loved this book. This love story is a case of mistaken identity. Not a story that has been told often. Milla is a school teacher who's dreams were shattered 8 years ago by Thomas St Clair. Thomas is a very successful horror author. Their paths cross when Milla almost runs over his dog Reaper. She takes the dog back to the address listed and finds his owner is her enemy Thomas. Thomas mistakes her for his date and she goes with it. This story was exciting and fun. The chemistry between the two ...more

The premise of this book had some promise. About eight years ago, Mila Elderkin was a promising intern at the New York Times who was promised a permanent job if she could write a good profile of a young up-and-coming novelist, Thomas St. Clair. Well, St. Clair refused all her attempts to interview him and blew her off with insulting lies. So she did her research and wrote a profile about how his parents’ ugly divorce might have influenced the themes in the horror novel he’d written. The retaliat ...more

Loved this romance by Lexxie Couper! I was intrigued by the synopsis, and the story didn’t disappoint! Mila is a school teacher, but that wasn’t the career she had in mind. She was on her way to being the journalist she always dreamed of until one man completely derailed that dream. Thomas is a literary genius. He is the world’s most successful horror novelist and hit the New York Times bestseller list at the mere age of 18. Now, he finds himself stuck…the words aren’t coming easily anymore, and ...more

I loved this book! What a great story Lexxie gives us. The famous Horror author with writers block, the once hopeful journalist blacklisted by him 8 years ago and now a school teacher.
They meet through awkward circumstances, his dog gets loose, she finds the dog and seeing the owners name of the tag turns her stomach, she does however return the dog to his doorstep. He's on a deadline and can't produce. He's lost it. When she shows up at the door he mistakes her for an arranged date for a party

What are the chances of accidently coming across someone that you have loathed for eight years? Is it fate? This is exactly what this novel is about.

Thomas hit the headlines with a best selling novel which turned into a film, eight years ago when he was barely seventeen. He is now a billionaire and very much in demand. His childhood upbringing has taught him to keep everything close to his heart. Until now!

Mila's dream of becoming a journalist ended after writing an article which had her fired

I have a confession.  I may or may not overlook a book if it has the word billionaires in the title. (Insert blushing emoji hiding behind hands) I can't help it. Since the book market has been flooded with independent titles, I have found myself disappointed with several of the billionaire insta-lust romances.

BUT I was intrigued by The Mistaken Billionaire's plot - it looked like a fun read. BUT I let it sit in my library forever. Honestly, I had wicked high hopes and I was terrified that I was

Thomas opens the door and thinks she is an hired escort that his assistant had hired for a charity event he must attend. Mil decides to let Thomas believe that. Somehow Mila seems to help Thomas overcome his writer's block and hires her just to be around him. She seems to look familiar to Thomas. Eight years ago Mila ...more

The Mistaken Billionaire is book two in the Muse series and it is just a good as the first. All the books in this series are standalones so you don’t need to read the first one before reading book two.

She stops to get the dog and looks at the owner information on his collar and is let to Thomas's door...the very same Thomas the writer that crushed her dreams and almost destroyed her.

The book starts off with things I can relate to - getting lost and yappy dogs. Some times what you make someone out to be is a 180 of what they really are.

His wise cracks and flirty ways to Mila when they first met caused me to like Thomas St Claire from the start. I wasn't sure about Mila once I found out about her secret but she grew on me. I understood why she was the way she was. She had everything figured out until she didn't. These characters were perfect for each other.

If ever there was the perfect time and place for what could be the most epic act of revenge………. Then things like attraction, chemistry, intrigue, passion and a conscience go and get in the way. Who would have guessed that your worst enemy is the one you crave the most.

I really enjoyed The Mistaken Billionaire, the second book in Lexxie Couper's Muse series. I always have mixed feeling when I read a romance where one of the main characters is lying about their identity to the other, but the author executed the plot perfectly and the fact that Mila didn't tell Thomas who she was for the majority of the book wasn't annoying or overdone because from the very beginning when it came to their relationship who Mila really was never mattered to Thomas. All he cared ab ...more

There are a lot of books that I go through, probably near 20 a month. Certainly hundreds in my collection. I have a soft spot for 50k racy romances with a big emotional payoff. bonus points if theres a spectacular HEA. But VERY infrequently, if never in all honesty can I say that I fell in love with the hero and heroine as completely as I did here. This book drew me in, challenged my mind, and kept the pages turning at a rapid rate. I may even turn it over and read it all over again. There was s ...more

I was given this ARC by NetGalley for an exchange for an honest review.

I was hooked from the very beginning. Mila and Thomas relationship might have started as a misunderstanding but it soon became more. Yes, Mila was only with Thomas to be his muse and to get him to pay for the laptops for her students but as she got to know the real Thomas St. Clair she started to fall for him little by little. They both hurt each other when they were younger and starting out in their careers but as adults th

Lexxie’s not a deviant. She just has a deviant’s imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get darkly erotic romances with a twist of horror, sci-fi and the paranormal.

When she’s not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie’s life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she’s insane, a indoor cat who likes to stalk shadows, two yabbies h
