The Billion Dollar Bachelor by Jackie Ashenden - Review

Jax Morrow is a dangerously handsome, spectacularly wealthy entrepreneur whose world is turned upside down when Pandora Garret walks into a dark, smoky bar one night—a stunning combination of sex and innocence. He knows she’s trouble at first sight, but Jax can’t let her leave…unless she’s leaving with him. Pandora has had enough. Kept under lock and key by her powerful, controlling father, she aches for freedom. When she briefly escapes and meets Jax she knows he is just what she has been looking for: forbidden, unforgettable passion. After one night in Jax’s arms, Pandora knows she can never go back to living under one man’s domination. Determined to control her own life she tries to resist Jax, but a dangerous desire rises between them—one that threatens to destroy them. But both Pandora and Jax discover that they just can’t be pulled away…

Not what I was expecting but pleasantly surprised with what I got. Yeah, Jax Morrow is a billionaire, but that isn’t something that is rubbed in and used to hold power over the heroine. It’s just who he is, and that was refreshing.

I really liked Pandora, she had a sheltered and at times lacking life. Others would look at her life and tell her to stop whining, but she was lacking the very basic human contact that we all crave.

She finds that human contact with Jax even though she doesn’t know if she can trust it because of the lessons taught by her childhood with a very distant father. I really liked that flaw edge that this gave Pandora, and Jax is far from perfect too. It’s enjoyable to read very human characters.

I really recommend this story and look forward to reading the other Morrow brother’s stories.

I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for my review.
