I made it. I’m richer than the richest, and my voice has the power to override laws. But to get here, I had to push her out of my life until she became nothing more than a piercing regret.

Pacts and second chance ❤love❤!!!!

Billion Dollar Chance it's the first installment in Linnea May's new series and a very enjoyable read! It all started with a first pact between the Plutus boys and the a second one within the same group of friends. Ella and Gabe were an item during College years, in a kind of/not so much 'relationship' with benefits, but never assumed the status of boyfriend/girlfriand, even though their feelings were hard and real, a 'deal' meant to end upon graduation, since t

I found Ella hard to like. Her prickly hauty, martyrdom was too much, especially when she was the one that selfishly left Gabe. She was nothing special in my eyes and Gabe could do better, much better. Her integrity was very questionable. Ella is a total and utterly complete work in frustration to me. She acts so immaturely trying to be miss independence when things are obviously beyond her depths. Smh. Thankfully ,Logan saved het thoughtlessness.

Gabe Boulder and Ella Whitt met in college 7 years ago. They had a unique relationship that can only be described as a never-ending one night stand. They agreed that it would be purely physical, but that's certainly not how it turned out. It had blossomed into love, but that simply was not going to happen. Ella left him to pursue a graduate degree out west, leaving Gabe behind, frustrated and angry. He refuses to think of her because, after all, isn't this what they agreed upon? Easier said than ...more

This story follows mainly Gage and Ella and what happens when after almost seven years they end up in the same room with each other again. So many emotions are exposed hurt, anger, resentment, pain, misunderstanding, past miscommunications and even longing. Even after all this time there is still a powerful pull between them even when they want to hate each other. As the saying goes there is a thin line between love and hate. Then her livelihood is put at risk when her boss gives her an ultimatu ...more

First in a new series of four guys who make up The Plutus Society, the god of wealth
Naturally, after reading THE BILLION DOLLAR PACT I wanted to read the ARC of BILLION DOLLAR CHANCE from Ms. May. This first book follows Gabe and Ella who had a friends-with-benefits arrangement in college on the brink of graduation. The guys: Gabe, Logan, Chase and Aston had made a pact to become billionaires by the time they turned 30yo. Loved the premise of this story, each being a standalone. In the prequel,

Billion Dollar Chance is my first read by Linnea May. It is a sweet, second chance, enemies to lovers read. It sets us up for the other books in The Biilion Dollar Pact Series.

Ella and Gabe “dated” their Senior year of college. Although, they never put a label on their relationship, when Ella decides to move to the West Coast for graduate school, Gabe was devastated.

Now seven years later, Ella is back and sitting across from Gabe to present a project the institute she is an intern for is workin

This is the first book of Linnea May's new series and it is different then her other books. Most of her reads have been really dark. This is not like that and is a good change.

Jump to the present and Gabe is now a successful attorney and Ella is doing what she always wanted working with the environment. Ella though is completely taken aback when ...more

This was a nice quick read and a great start to a series! High 3 stars

I loved the whole premise of the story. Ella is our sweet independent green activist and has to make a deal with her Billionaire ex boyfriend after a meeting they both attended that went absolutely dramatic.

I loved the fact that Ella was an environmentalist without overdoing it, often times with a profession like that in a book or even just a minor them in a bigger story, it can come off as preachy. This was not. Ella was fier

Excellent book!

This is the story of Gabe & Ella. Gabe is a billionaire and impulsive and arrogant. Ella is very stubborn and independent and tends to run away instead of facing things. They met in college, had a purely sexual relationship, even though they loved each other. That was seven years ago. She had left for the West Coast, leaving him behind. Now she is an intern in Washington DC, and is part of the Climate and Energy Action Plan. They are presenting their first draft. Gabe is the is th

Linnea May has again written a book that grabs you from the very beginning keeping you invested all the way through, the writing and storyline flow seamlessly, with the characters both extremely headstrong but also having a softer side. Heartache and regrets have plagued Gabe a self made multimillionaire and Ella a struggling environmentalist since there friends with benefits ended seven years ago after their last year at college. Little did they know what fate had install for them when after al ...more

This a good start to a new series. The story flowed nicely along and gave me the usual second chance romance feels. The push, pull and avoidance of feelings that infuriated me at times but were totally understandable from both perspectives. The ending was sweet and perfect for this couple.

First off: I really liked this cover. It's something different from Linnea, but it is still polished and really fits the story.

This was quite different from everything else I've read from Linnea.

It still holds elements of her raunchy romance, still had playfulness and strong characters but I did find it a bit of a struggle to read at times.

Let me be clear: I did enjoy the dynamics between Ella and Gabe. You could feel that there were still feelings between them, even right from the beginning. Th

Can Gabe forgive Ella for breaking his heart seven years ago? This second chance story is about a man who never stopped loving the woman who broke his heart. For Ella thought her college relationship with Gabe was just "friends with benefits" and it broke he heart when following graduation she chose to get her Master's degree at a college on the opposite coast. Their unexpected reunion shows that the sparks they previously felt are still alive but can they survive the all the obstacles that seem ...more

What an absolutely wonderful story! There is so much to love about this first book in a new series. It’s about second chances and going for what you want. Ella and Gabe knew each other in college, but things didn’t exactly work out. Fast forward many years later and these two meet up and while the sparks are still there, things aren’t exactly perfect. Ella is fiercely independent and Gabe is ridiculously wealthy. Both of them stubborn and refusing to back down. So when an opportunity arises in w ...more

What a marvellous story, I thoroughly enjoyed this second chance, opposites attract, love story. While Gabe and Ella were an item in college, even then they fought against acknowledging their feelings, now seven years later and a chance meeting brings them back together, they are still fighting their feelings. They are opposites in so many ways, but the attraction between them is as strong as ever. The passion is off the charts even while they fight it, but fate determines otherwise and they cha ...more

This is a new story line plot that I find different in our author writing.
This will involve a set of four friends that we will get to know a bit about that puts their two cents in everything Gabe does.
Gabe and Ella story is about friends with benefits that ended when they left college which secretly crushed Gabe but he never stopped her nor told her how he felt.
They both worked hard to achieve their goals while he became successful billionaire, she still had to prove herself in her internship

"Intertwining like vines as we grew."
A second chance romance for college friends. Gabe has made his dreams come true, so much, that's he's bored with his life. He's a bit arrogant and set in his ways, he doesn't have to bow to anyone, he is the one in control and everyone knows it. Ella is scraping by, sharing a lousy apartment, and working as an intern, making little or no money. She has one chance to start her path of redemption, but Gabe is sitting at the table and she chokes. I loved the bl

This was such a cute second chance romance! I just felt so sorry for Ella who was bicycling around Washington, DC on a bike in the winter time! And since she was a non-paid intern, she and her roommate were also scrimping on heat in their poor little apartment! It was hilarious when she was "promoted" and her boss thought she'd pull a fast one! Gabe was pretty much a hero throughout the book but he did need his friend's advice to set him straight toward the end to get the couple to their happy e ...more

Loved it. Endearing story about giving love a second chance.
Ella and Gabe broke up after college. When they see each other again seven years later at opposing ends of the negotiation table - she working for an NGO to save the climate, he as an advisor for the government - sparks fly immediately.
I really liked the chemistry between those two that was palpable from the first second.
Finished the book in one reading, unable to put it down. Linnea produced yet another page turner here. And I am so

Gabe and Ella were college lovers, but heavens!--not girlfriend and boyfriend! Really?!? Gabe and his buddies made a pact to be billionaires before age 30. They succeeded. Unfortunately Ella didn't do as well, still an unpaid intern. She had risked everything, including Gabe, to attend graduate school on the west coast, as far from Gabe, sadly, as she could get. Now they're back in the same city, but certainly not together. Ella is fiercely independent and Gabe likes control, which makes for lot ...more

I'm an indie author of steamy Billionaire Romances, and I love strong alpha men with loaded bank accounts and skeletons in their closets.

My heroes are as sexy and beautiful as they are broken - only to be fixed by the smart & captivating heroines who cross their paths.
