Can we talk?

I wanted to know what made Aubrey Merritt (or anyone with the same credentials) so special that she’s pilfered from her job and given an unexpected golden opportunity of a lifetime as CEO/partner of a recently purchased Wealth Management Company now owned by Billionaire Carson MacDonald. If history has taught us anything, it’s that consistent financial returns from financial whiz kids are suspect.

As for the Carson, when he discovers someone close to him almost causes him to lose an i

First off, the author is obviously talented, and I loved the writing style. It flowed very well, there are no clunky attempts at metaphors or similes that drag me out of the story, and the dialogue is top-notch. I frequently stop reading books within the first few pages if the writing style annoys me and I don’t tolerate poor grammar/poor editing. There are many books to choose from and I won't waste my time on something that turns me off immediately. I've stopped reading some authors completely ...more

Aubrey is an investment advisor that Carson hires to run his new business. They slowly move into a relationship which is almost painful to read. Aubrey is way too guarded, makes too many assumptions and doesn’t come across as likable. Carson doesn’t fare much better. This couple in a word, is boring.

They are over taken by almost every side character in the book. I was way more interested in Aubrey’s family, Carson’s father and Aubrey’s friend Mira, whose story sadly was just brushed aside at th

Carson McDonald is a billionaire and he offers Aubrey Merrill who is a financial whiz a chance at partnership to manage his wealth management division at a company he recently purchased.

There is chemistry between Carson and Aubrey but neither is looking for romance as Carson has a girlfriend and Aubrey is taking care of her sick dad. Once Aubrey and Carson relationship goes from work to romance things heat up.

This was a great read, fast paced, page turner, awesome characters and a great plot. Lo

Aubrey and Carson - He Finally figured it out!

I would have given this 5 stars, because it is an excellent read, warts and all. BUT what the heck happened with Mira and Ben? It was like Mira disappeared from Aubrey’s life.
Carson, like everyone of us, had hang-ups from his childhood. Which left him with insecurities regarding intimate relationships and marriage. Aubrey had kissed a couple of frogs too.
I didn’t agree with the intervention their parents pulled and I probably wouldn’t speak to mine

Nice Read

The Billionaire’s Proposal is a very nice, easy and enjoyable read. Although, I felt as if something was missing, like an epilogue of something to show closure of the story. I truly ENJOYED reading this book.

This is the first time I’ve ever read anything from this author, and I’m looking forward to seeing Mira’s story.

Aubrey and Carson meet under unusual circumstances. Aubrey works at an investment firm; Carson is a billionaire looking for someone to run one of his latest investment firms. There's an interest between the two but, he has a girlfriend and she has a sick father. The pace of the story is a little slow for me. Aubrey and Carson are both very hesitant to move forward in a relationship. It's an okay read.

Equality in Action

Love to see a black women written doing what a black woman can do. Especially one recognized as an equal by a white man as his equal. Carson knew what Aubrey brought to the table and he just couldn't stay out of the boardroom, bedroom kitchen, or whatever fable she was at. He got served. Loved this book

This is not the average billionaire story, money doesn't matter. There are just two somewhat insecure people who have to find out what they want.
I liked the reliable characters, but didn't care too much for the storyline.

This was an incredible, short book. The characters were well developed and the reader can identify with slot of the dating situations occurring. I will definitely be reading more by this author.
The story was a little bland. There wasn't a wow factor throughout. The connection between Aubrey and Carson was underwhelming.

The story consisted of a few discrepancies within. I feel as though the writer forgot Carson was a Billionaire. Therefore, he had money to spend.
