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

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

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

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.....

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-

“I have a feeling you will change your mind. And when you do, I will be back to hike your pretty little ass over my shoulder and carry you out of this place.”

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 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

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.

Nothing But Trouble is the first book in the Irresistible Billionaires series, and it features Michael, the first from a group of friends that I presume we will hear from. The blurb for this book sounded great, and I was really looking forward to reading it. Unfortunately for me, the reality fell a bit of a way from the expectation.

I didn't connect with Michael and Sophia at all. After a promising start, it just seemed to fizzle out. They didn't really have any connection apart from physical, al

This was short and sweet. It isn’t groundbreaking and there are some silly things (no kissing on the lips - a la Pretty Woman) but in the end it was a nice feel good story.

The characters are well developed. Their relationships with their families (and his friends) make them interesting and give some weight to the story. I loved his grandmother, Regina. She was a riot.

This was a quick and enjoyable read. I was looking for something to take a break from all the psychological thrillers and it fit
Unfortunately, this book didn't work for me. She's a stripper who later realizes their lives are too different. He gives his driver a 3-week vacation and takes public transportation and now he understands what it's like to be in her stilettos. His ex and how he was still (very) physically attracted to her was off-putting and unexpected. At one point I felt like they might be better together. The only thing that really makes him finally walk away from his ex is hearing her say she assumed Sophie ...more
Sunny Shelly Reads
This story is pretty standard fare, billionaire/virgin pairing. It is rather predictable and follows the format that we’ve all come to expect from the trope, but it just lacked that punch that had me anxiously awaiting for Michael and Sophie’s fauxmance to turn real.

There were parts that felt a bit choppy to me, and the dialogue between the characters came off as unnatural at times. I just didn’t fall in love with Michael and Sophie.

This is a light-hearted romance about a billionaire (Michael) with some bad memories about his ex-fiancée (Mindy) and realizes that he needs a date for a fundraiser event. He comes into contact with a rather naïve young woman (Sophia) via his dating website, after a confrontation with Mindy at the event she becomes jealous and later discloses that Sophia is a stripper and from here the retaliation and games begin.

Loved this book. The story was well written and the plot flowed smooth and logically. The characters were terrific, with strong traits and values. The story is about Michael and Sophia, how they met, how they changed and how their relationship developed. The chemistry between them leaps off the page, but the issues they have to face and overcome makes the reader wonder if they will be able to find their happy ever after. I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out. I haven’t read any o ...more
