So pleasantly surprised by this series!

I would never have purchased them individually and I am not a fan of the "serial" novel, but this one definitely pulled me out of my book slump. Simon is a genius--literally--and a computer nerd. He's also a billionaire, sex on a stick alpha male and a bit damaged. Kara is a nursing student trying--and failing--to make it through her last semester of school before 4 years of 80 hour work weeks, financial troubles and exhaustion destroy her well laid plans.

I know we are all sick to death of the Fifty Shades comparisons but it is diffucult not to compare. However this is more romantic, no BDSM, no gross-me-out sex, no change everything about you nonsense,and the girl is a woman, all of that makes this better.
The characters are flawed and vulnerable and want to be better people. Like Fifty Shades the guy is rich and acts like a jerk and has had a terrible trama that influences his sex life. Unlike FiftyShades the woman (not girl) refuses to enable

It is official. J.S. Scott is my new favorite author.

I am completely in love with this scarred, emotionally damaged hero who watched Kara for a year, protecting her before they actually meet.

I don't want to spoiler anything, but this author knows how to write a hero who will invade your mind and soul. Simon is a revelation. I rarely give 5 star reviews but I was so caught up in Kara and Simon's story I was swept along with it. Bravo, J.S. Scott.

Off to start Sam's story, I have a hard time believ

3.5 rounded up to 4 stars!

Was a nice enjoyable easy read, and a bargain price for the set.

At one point (when it was hinting at Simon never having had a girlfriend, except one woman when he was 16 and his life changed yadda yadda - I worried it was going to go down a Mrs Robinson copy of 50 shades of grey, but thankfully it did not)

Kara frustrated me at the halfway point! She decided she can wait until Simon is ready to tell her what had happened to him when he was young, let him do it in his ow

I purposely stay away from 'Billionaire' books for obvious reasons.
I was surprised that I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Simon was an Alpha Dom yet he was kind, sweet, and endearing.
The heroine was nobody's fool and the two of them worked together very well--Great chemistry for them and hot sex scenes for us.
It was a great read and I think I got it for .99.
I was very pleasantly surprised in all aspects.
I'll definitely be checking out more from this Author.

I love this series. Simon is a gruff, awkward computer "geek". He is also a hot Alpha male. Kara is a poor college student struggling to make ends meet and get her nursing degree. Simon watches Kara from afar for a year. She works for his mom and Kara walks by his apartment every night on the way home from work. He follows her to make sure she gets home ok. She has never met Simon until one fateful night walking home from work and still battling sickness she passes out in the middle of the sidew ...more

Wow, I loved this series. Kara Hudson, is trying to finish nursing school and work full time to support herself, but bad luck seems to follow her. She is a very independent woman who would rather do without than ask for help. Simon Hudson, is a billionaire, who has been obsessed with Kara, since the first time he saw her working in his mother's restaurant. Kara, is a warm, loving, and feisty woman and Simon, is alpha male, possessive, and quite bossy. Once these two get together, the sparks real ...more

What a pleasant surprise! Found the first story of this trilogy "free" at iBook store and gave it a try. Nicely done. Enjoyed both characters so much that I went back to pick up the sequel(s) and found the entire series wrapped up in this book for 99 cents at the iBook store. .

Simon was a heartthrob. A girl's fantasy come true! He met Kara over a year ago and well...he became a stalker of sorts. He had some issues that had him staying away from her, but that all came to a screeching halt PDQ.

Mine For Tonight, Mine For Now, Mine For Forever, Mine Completely. WOW!! Four books, one amazing series, one fantastic box set. I loved this story so much, each time wanting more and Author JS Scott did not disappoint, giving me more of Simon and Kara. Simon is totally in love with Kara and she is falling for him, two wonderful characters each with stubborn personalities but fantastic to read about. You hear all about Simon's past which is stomach churning to read, but he opens up to Kara, she i

I did not expect this to be so good! Not mind-blowing, angsty, full of emotion story, but this is just a perfect book when you just want a romance with some spice, a hot billionaire rescuing a poor girl type of story. It's not all lovey-dovey, some parts were funny, the heroine's not annoying, the hero's an alpha. It's classic but not boring.
Now I'm off to Sam and Maddie's story, the hero's brother book :) Heart of the Billionaire:

I just loved the sweetness of this book! Simon was such a caveman, but his combined bossiness and vulnerability melted my heart. Kara was a strong and sassy and not afraid of her feelings. And I absolutely swooned over the heart wishes.

4 stars!

Very enjoyable, sexy story with a great hero and heroine. I really loved both Simon and Kara. I am usually pretty tough to please with heroines, but Kara was totally and completely likable, start to finish. Simon was a fantastic hero; he was obsessive, protective, possessive, generous, affectionate and sexy.

My only complaint has to do with one small OW scene which I know was included to bring some drama. Nevertheless, it irked me. (view spoiler)

SO I got the first book free for iTunes. Fell in love with it and had to buy the whole set. At first I thought it was going to be like Fifty Shades. Rich guy rescues poor college student gives her money and she lives with him. Well it kind of is but without the bondage stuff like Fifty and with a really sweet story line. Don't let that word fool you I just don't know how else to put it. It has a romance, two people trying to open up to the other so that they can realize they both love each other ...more

A love so raw and deep the resulting passion is overwhelming!
This is a novella series that was free to me via Amazon. I've read it twice and loved it each time.

This is a group of Novella’s that make wonderful bedtime reads.
Alpha billionaire Simon Hudson has been in love with Kara Foster since the first time he saw her. Kara struggles completely alone until Simon kidnaps her from her situation, saving her future. Simon’s mother, her connection to Simon, is the only that keeps Kara from running

This is the perfect combination of strong Alpha male and strong heroine. Simon has very deep emotional issues, fearing losing control especially in the bedroom. Kara is an overworked young women with no family making her way through college. Simon is a billionaire but worked his way to the top and started off poor, which may be why he wants so desperately to help Kara. However, Kara is just the help Simon needs. She makes Simon face his fears and loves him unconditionally. Nothing is easy though ...more

Loved it! Loved that Simon wasn't an arrogant cocky jerk. Just a really possessive alpha male ;) The relationship between Simon and Kara is really just so sweet. And somehow, the author managed to write some amazing steamy-hot sex scenes along the way! Whewwww!

Brilliant. This story has It all. Love that starts from a far, with Simon Hudson Billionaire son of Helen Hudson whom owns a restaurant where a girl called Kara Foster works. Kara has become an obsession for Simon. She has heard about him, but has yet to meet him. Simon on the other hand knows lots about Kara, he has obsessed over her for more than a year.

Simon doesn't do relationships & with the fact that Kara is a good friend to his mother he has held back. But the situation arises for him

First off... I didn't like that this claims to be a "complete collection" - leading the reader to think they are getting multiple full books. This is ONE book busted into 4(?) or 3 maybe? Whatever. Anyway, it's one book.

It's a good read. I liked the general story. I actually couldn't put it down.

A few issues I had:
1. Simon is a stalker and creeper and no one seems to care.
2. Kara has great potential to be a missing person with her over-trusting stalkers.
3. Kara seems on the dumb side. Indep

What girl doesn't want to be swept off her feet by a hot man? This series will take you for an unforgettable ride. Simon has watched and has been drawn to Kara for so long. Only to get the chance to be there when she needs him. Kara had no idea that Simon had been like a guardian angel for so long. But she pushes her body to far, with work, school and little time to even breath much less eat.
Simon rescues her from not only a roommate that gets her evicted and steals everything she own, he rescue

Long and drawn out and not realistic. Simon is obsessed with Kara so much he followed her home every day for a year. He saves her from fainting on the sidewalk and takes her too his condo. She never met him before yet when he orders her to stay with him while she gets well, she agrees. First of all who would do that? She willingly stays with a man she never met because he said to? Then she loses her apartment and he finds all this out and she lives with him permanently. Really? Weeks later they ...more

Oh how I love Kara and Simon! These two got me hooked on JS Scott and now I just can't stop! I snatch up all of her new releases immediately (if not sooner!) and it's all because these two characters, and their story, were so wonderful. Simon is so wonderfully alpha male but in such a caring and sweet, but totally over the top, kind of way. I just love how he takes such good care of Kara. She is one lucky girl! I highly recommend this series. Afterwards, I guarantee you will be hooked on JS Scot ...more
