Billionaire CEO Michael Vilander needed just one date. Creating a fake profile on his own matchmaking website may not have been his brightest move. But then Sophia Baldwin’s arresting face pops up on his CHAT NOW feature. Not only is she gorgeous, but after spending half the night exchanging messages with her, he finds her to be naive, innocent and way too sexy.

Chris  C - A Midlife Wife
Pretty good. Few hot spots and yumminess.
I have read a lot of millionaire/billionaire stories over the years. They’re like a classic tried-and-true and they’re great for a never fail HEA.

This story is a familiar plot and the author did a great job developing story. Even adding the evil Ex was a perfect twist.

But I had a hard time with the flow and the wording in some of the sections. The romantic connection was just off a little bit and just didn’t grab me for the all i
My Pink Fairytales
I hate it when I request an ARC based on the blurb, thinking I'll love the book so much, but end up so disappointed. Then I feel really guilty, feeling bad thinking about the author, having to read a review like the one I'm going to write.

So, we have a self made billionaire (owner of a website like or something) and a twenty-four year old lady. (view spoiler)

The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Nothing But Trouble and myself did not get off to a good start. I am not sure if it was me or the read but things soon changed for the better. Once I got further into Michael I as on cloud nine. He was sweet, sexy, and had hints of being shy. He was no push over but he was not alpha, alpha. Sophie on the other hand was not what I would call a match for Michael. This hand nothing to do with her status. It was more the character bio. I did not find her to be really on the level. She was a bit hard ...more

I have to admit the cover of this book doesn't do it for me as the guy looks bored and arrogant, not at all as I imagined Michael to be as I read through the pages. What did draw me was the whole idea of a fake relationship or in this case a fake engagement and the concept of online dating. I love those sorts of stories and even better when they end like Cinderella fairytales. The other thing that I loved about Ashley Bostock's book that set her aside from the other romance writers who write thi

I was gifted an ARC for an honest review.


This was a good concept, nothing really new and the h's job was cliche. I really liked the h for the most part, she was a bit bruised by life but was not afraid to say what she thought. She was a bit gun shy later in the book but you could understand her being a bit dubious given the differences between the h and H.
The H - could not take to him. He was hurt years ago and when his ex reappears, rather than put her in her place he entertained her ideas
Crazy for Books (Stephanie)
This story took a while to get going, which caused me to get a little bored. By the time Michael and Sophia actually meet, I didn't really care. The story went downhill from there. I would never get back with a man who judged me for what I needed to do to survive, which wasn't illegal, and didn't give me a chance to explain.

I didn't like the Hero at all, the heroine was a bit too proud. I don't believe you have to tell anyone everything about you when you are dating, but she still made it harder

This is the first book I have read from this author and she blew my mind. I love my billionaire men but this talented author exceeded all my expectations with Michael. This is the first book of the irresistible billionaires series and what great start it was. I was hooked on this book right from the beginning. It took me only a few hours to devour this book.

Nothing But Trouble is the first book in the Irresistible Billionaire Series by the wonderfully talented Ashley Bostock. It is such a fantastic, steamy contemporary/billionaire romance with a ‘fake-engagement’, and a bit of a modern ‘Cinderella’ story feel to the whole thing- which I really loved. It is an incredibly sexy and erotic story with scorching details that sizzled right off the pages.

Nothing But Trouble is book one in the Irresistible Billionaires series by Ashley Bostock. I adore a good billionaire romance and I can say this author produces some of the most memorable ones. The story just flowed along, with many bumpy sections, many glorious sections, many tense sections, and endless feelings of love, even when the chips were down.

Sophia is a character I admire. She did what she had to do. She loves with her whole being, and isn't afraid to get dirty while doing what she nee

Really enjoyed this New series by Ashley Bostock.

I thought the characters, Michael and Sophia were fun, the book had me totally invested, eager to see how they navigated their way through their fake relationship, to getting to know each other including finding out secrets.

I loved the Matchmaker premise and there were some LOL moments, but on the whole, they both got on very well, evoking feelings in each other that they both were not expecting.

I loved how they both had great affection towards

He has a two date max rule. However he needs a date for a fundraiser, but he decides he’ll seek someone out on his dating website, enter Sophia Baldwin, sweet, hardworking and compassionate.

Nothing But Trouble (Irresistible Billionaires #1) by Ashley Bostock  
Turns out the billionaire wasn't the only thing that was irresistible. Bostock turned a humorous tale of heartache into a deeply moving life lesson. Nothing but Trouble tackles a woman's quest for independence, even as her world is falling apart. Her redemption comes in the form of a hot billionaire with a chip on his shoulder and an emptiness in his heart. She teaches him how to hope, he reminds her how to dream and together

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..(netgalley) What in the heck? What? This book was ridiculous. These two did not belong together and were weak. I hate heroines like this one, she needed self respect. She allowed Michael to treat crappy and then she is the one after him..huh I wanted to knock her up on the side of the head to wake up. Then there is Michael, he acts like he is so bad but lets his past dictate him, his ex ruined him yet he is still panting for her..Horrible..Yeah I wont read the r ...more

This was a really fun quick read. I really do enjoy a good billionaire romance and Michael and Sophia's story was a pretty good read it was almost a modern take on Cinderella my only issue was it felt rushed at the end but other than that I enjoyed getting to know these two and liked their story. Looking forward to the next book
Danielle from Short and Sassy
This book, in theory, sounded good. When I started reading it, it quickly went south for me. There was so many weird things I couldn't over look. So many cliche storylines in this one. Stripper and Billionaire? Not what I was looking for.....

This book is a really hard one for me to review without rambling and probably making no sense. Mostly because the story and the writing is really very good. There were just things that didn’t gel to make it a great read for me.

First the aspects I loved:

The character of Sophia was both intriguing and sympathetic. The author did a fantastic job of juxtaposing a young lady forced to navigate the sex business while still fighting to keep her innocence. Her circumstances make this situation b

must be on a "hire a date" kick, because this is the second book in 2 days I've read with that type of theme. They are completely different story lines, but have the same general theme. Not complaining in the least because Nothing But Trouble did not disappoint. It had a strong story line, great characters and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire read.

Story Line: Who doesn't love a hot as heck billionaire? Show of hands? That's what I thought. I'm a total goner when it comes to rich, boss-

A sweet and little heart-warming story, of a woman just trying to survive and do what she can and a man who is on top of the world with a tainted view on what it takes to be happy and how they manage to affect each other in the most unexpected way, comes to life

This story is sweet, funny, sad and beautiful. I had so many emotions with all the different situations happening between the two main characters. This was a nice easy read that left me satisfied with the whole story and how everything played out.

Michael is irritating. After meeting Sophia and having her as his pretend date for the gala and now his pretend fiance, he messes it up. His sneaky, nasty ex fin

Such a fun book! I loved Michael’s character from the beginning. At first glance he may seem to be the standard romance cliche, CEO too busy to date, hurt by previous ex and sworn off to finding true love, but that’s where it ends. Immediately his character is enduring and sweet. His grandmother is his secretary and their banter is adorable. Michael is the head of his own company that developed and runs a dating app. Desperate for a date for a charity gala he signs up for his own app. Enter Soph ...more

Michael runs a dating website, but refuses to risk his heart again so he keeps all dates casual. So casual, that he can't find a date to the Valentine's Day charity gala. He sets up a fake profile and is matched to Sophia by his own app, yet he's still amazed and thrilled to find that she's every bit the perfect match for him.

Sophia is happy to play the part of a cherished Cinderella for one night, but when Michael's ex starts embarrassing him at the gala, Sophia jumps to his defense and makes t

Nothing But Trouble (Irresistible Billionaire Series Book 1) by Ashley Bostock is another
great contemporary billionaire romance story from her. Ashley is one of my favourite authors
and I love the way she tells her stories. Her characters are wonderful, well developed and
always a little complex which draws you in and make the journey just a little bit more
appealing. I love stories that flow easily, even though there were a lot of bumps in the road
