The Millionaire Affair by Jessica Lemmon - Review

Millionaire ad executive Landon Downey has a policy: no romantic relationships allowed. So when he's saddled with his six-year-old nephew for a week, he doesn't think twice about asking Kimber Reynolds to act as live-in nanny. What he doesn't expect is the undeniable attraction to the woman he hasn't seen since they were kids. And not only does she like him back-she suggests they work their way down a list of extracurricular activities in the bedroom. How can he resist?

Kimber wants to prove once and for all that she can love 'em and leave 'em with the best of them. All she has to do is keep her sixteen-year crush on Landon out of the equation. No problem . . . until she realizes she may not be the only one whose heart has gotten completely tangled up in their no-strings agreement.

I really loved this premise, I think it works because Kimber has been a bi tin love with Landon Downey even before he was a millionaire. She also knows nothing about kids but since the money could help her, she dives into taking care of Landon’s nephew for a week anyway.

I really liked Kimber for the most part, I did get really annoyed with her when she let her mother’s opinions on men and marriage influence her relationship with Landon. I wanted to yell at her, because it’s obvious she loved him and wanted to be with him, but just couldn’t be with him because she didn’t want to give anything up. For a bit there I thought she was pretty selfish. However, Kimber redeems herself because I could understand some of her insecurities, it’s not like Landon is the perfect example of commitment.

Overall, I was entertained by the story and while it’s the third book in the series, it is easily read by itself. I do recommend it, and while Landon is a millionaire, the difference in wealth is not overplayed in this story. 

I received a copy for the purpose of review. I was not compensated for my review.

  1. I really enjoyed the earlier ones in the series. I've not tried this one yet but it's on my list :) She does really great millionaire/billionaire types that are so different from the current trend of them I think. Glad you enjoyed it!
