Romancing the Billionaire by Jessica Clare - Review @BerkleyRomance

The New Billionaire Boys Club novel by the New York Times bestselling author.

The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society. Six men of astonishing wealth. But there’s one thing money can’t buy. When it comes to love, success doesn’t come so easily…

Jonathan Lyons. Playboy, billionaire, and adventurer, he lives life on the edge. When he hears that his mentor, Dr. Phineas DeWitt, had a secret journal that leads to a legendary artifact, Jonathan takes action. It stirs his blood, but it comes with a heady challenge: DeWitt’s daughter Violet. She has what Jonathan needs. And she’s not giving it up it to the man who broke her heart.

Violet is Jonathan’s weakness—he’s still in love despite their volatile breakup a decade ago. But Violet’s memories have a sharper edge. She’s never forgiven him for abandoning her. Or so she thought. When Jonathan’s attentions turn seductive, she’s in danger of falling for him all over again. And she can’t help but wonder…does he really want her, or just what she's hiding?

Two young college students fall in love, but fate and a meddling father ends things tragically, years later they aren’t those young kids anymore, but the love still exists even if Violet denies it vehemently.

Jonathan doesn’t have all the details of why Violet is so adamant against their love being rekindled, but he is a grown man, a billionaire, and he doesn’t let a simple no stop him for going for what he wants, and he definitely wants her.

I enjoyed the way Violet’s father seemed to be trying to right old wrongs posthumously, and I understood Violet’s reaction to her dad’s meddling from the grave. I also understood Jonathon’s reactions to various situations, and I couldn’t blame him for expressing his feelings the only way he knows how.

I really enjoy all of Ms. Clare’s Billionare Club books and this was an interesting and good addition because the main characters were second chance lovers, which was a great new trope to explore.

I highly recommend this book, with solid writing and two characters who you never doubt their love, just their ability to learn to live and love again with years of pain and misunderstandings and lack of communication to get through.  

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