Billionaires Club
(Welcome to the Club, #1)
Published by: Crave Publishing LLC
Publication date: November 6th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

People say size doesn’t matter, but in a world ruled by cash and currency, the size of your bank account does.

When it comes to the survival of the richest, hundreds have no worth. Thousands are mere pocket change. And millions are nothing more than a beginner’s stepping stone.

But when it comes to blistering hot passion, money doesn’t always speak the language of love. There’s the billionaire boss who falls for her sinfully gorgeous employee. And the rich construction worker whose world changes after a hot encounter with a girl from the other side of the tracks. Dollars can’t be turned to hearts.

Follow the characters of these five intertwined novellas and discover that you can’t put a price tag on romance.

All bets are off when finding love is worth more than millions, and risking it all might just be worth it.

Because in this world… it’s all about the billions, baby…

SNEAK PEEKS:

Whatever You Want by Chevoque

Out of his close proximity, she released a held-in breath and entered the room. Inside, she realised she hadn’t even thanked him, so as she turned back, she found he hadn’t quite stepped away either, and their faces were millimetres apart. The silence persisted, as his smouldering eyes captivated her while her knees locked for a moment too long, before she stepped back.

“Uhm, thank you and goodnight. I seemed to have momentarily lost my manners,” she managed to say.

“Yeah, same to you,” he casually countered, which had her feeling disappointed, as she had hoped he also felt that electric buzz between them, but it clearly hadn’t affected him in the same way. His footfalls headed toward his room and then they stopped.

She peeked around the corner of the doorjamb and saw him look back over his shoulder. Her breath caught at the stark picture it painted, while nothing but the fear of consequences kept her from running after him.

“Just once?” he softly asked.

She took a steadying breath, knowing exactly what he meant. “Yes.”

He turned around with need in his eyes, while she rushed out of the room and met him halfway, with her arms already stretched out.

The collision of their bodies echoed in their lips finding each other’s, while his arms encircled her. The frenzied feelings burst into chaos as she felt his tongue slither over her lower lip before he nipped at the flesh.

A yearning mewl escaped her, and the little space left between them was closed as he lifted her up and she crossed her legs around his hips. Pressing her up against the wall, their tongues danced along with their bodies as he steadily ground his hard member against her sex.
Whatever this was meant to be, she’d rather not think about, but in a few seconds of clarity, she knew this went against the code of conduct for Salexis and her personal morals, so she pushed him away.

He immediately set her down and stepped back until he hit the wall behind him.
Through the panting she found his eyes, familiar eyes she pretended to love for over a year, without realising she had done just that. It wasn’t the love she shared with Joel, it was different in every way, but she had avoided seeing it until now that she was close enough to see it in his eyes, knowing she would soon lose it.

A Billion Reasons by Elsa Kurt

Jenna gasped a little as their lips touched. He was so gentle, his touch so tender, that tears sprung to her eyes. There were no comparisons to the way Griffin Pierce kissed her, it was passionate yet sweet, and she wanted the moment to last forever. The way his hand traced the curve of her jaw, then coiled through her hair, his fingertips scratching her scalp in slow circles. Every touch, every move was made with sweet reverence. No touch was made without consent, no kiss was demanded…only asked.

He led her from the table, deftly snagging a blanket from under the trolley—one that Tilly had no doubt had the foresight to leave for them—and led her to the now moonlit beach by the lake. There he opened the blanket with a flick and let it settle on the sand. Griff took her face in his hands and searched her eyes for the answer to an unasked question. She slipped one strap off her shoulder, letting it drop. Jenna gave a small, encouraging nod, and Griff’s hand teased a trail down her throat, across her collarbone. His fingers slipped under the other strap, and as he lowered it, he placed a soft kiss on her bare, moonlit skin.

Her head fell back, and she sighed his name as her dress fell to the ground with a whisper. Then his lips found hers again, and they kissed deeply. Griff lowered her to the blanket, then pulled off his shirt. He kicked off his shoes and unbuttoned his pants with measured, deliberate movements, like a man ready to love a woman slowly and thoroughly. He was by far the most beautiful man Jenna had ever seen. With a sense of wonder, Jenna realized that her heart wanted him as much as her body did. There were no warning bells, no voice of caution hissing in her ear. There was only Griff and the moonlight.

He laid down beside her, brushed the long hairs away from her face, and gazed down at her with the same awed wonder she felt. “Sweet girl, what have you done to me, hmm?”

Jenna smiled and raised her hand to his face. It was small against his warm, rough cheek and tickled her palm when he nuzzled against it. She giggled and said, ‘Oh, what have you done to me, old man?”

He gave her a look of mock indignation, then winked as he said, “I’ll show you old man,” just before he kissed her and rolled her on top of him.

They made slow, unhurried love under the stars and moon, exploring each other’s bodies with lips, tongues, and hands. They whispered sweet words against one another’s skin and held on tightly in the most profound throes of passion. Then, in the pre-dawn hours, they ran back to the estate and into Jenna’s guesthouse, where they fell into bed. She curled against Griff and slept soundly for the first time in years.

#WOTR19 – #Review – Order of Fear by Lisa Caviness

 

Order of Fear

 

Sometimes fear is all that keeps you alive.

Murder
A senior account, ballet dancer, and future bride, Marissa Nash likes order, and she expects all the pieces of her life to add up. Her bottom line is skewed after she discovers her fiancé has been unfaithful. When Marissa walks in to the unexpected—David dead and her dog, Halo, agitated and restless, she finds her nightmare is only beginning.

Passion
David’s unenthused best man and traumatized former Army doctor, Justin Tanner understands that a wedding means more than a toast and a kiss. His reluctance stems from feelings that run deeper than they should for the bride. But when he finds Marissa cradling his best friend’s lifeless body, can he find a way to suppress his feelings as they uncover David’s secret world?

Evil
The seemingly pointless murder launches Marissa and Justin into a wicked web of lies, delusion and danger at the hands of a powerful and psychotic foe.

Murder, passion, evil—who will survive?

 

Goodreads

 

5 very suspenseful stars! Oh. My. Wow! I don’t know why it took me so long to read this but holy hell I got hooked! This story is an incredible web woven with deceit, lies, loyalty, and passion. This is one of those books that starts out with a bang and and never stops until the very, very end. An absolute page turner!

 

First, Marissa….she is about to get married and is gone on a business trip. She is planning to call off her wedding to David when she returns because she found out he has been unfaithful to her. Things go awry and she is late coming home but when she does she finds David’s dead body in their home.

 

Second, Justin….the best man is super agitated with David as he hasn’t been able to reach him for days. He goes to the house to find Marissa cradling David’s dead body.

 

From here the story gets twisted!!!!! The two are being followed, an explosion happens and people are dying all around them. A coincidence? NOOOOOOO! Just keep going….Not everyone is who they seem but can you figure out who doesn’t belong? Nope! Not ‘til the end! This roller coaster of a story keeps you rooting for Marissa and Justin but then….do you? I was so back and forth with the idea of them and exactly how this was all going to pan out that I just couldn’t stop reading. And let me tell you about the bad guys. I don’t know what was going on in the author’s mind at the time of writing the antagonists but daaaaang are they bad! Written so good but soooo bad! The story is full of heightened emotions and ends up being very evil. Full of danger with the exact right amount of passion and love. An absolute must read!

One week. No more.

When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.

Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Heads up! By the time I have written this review, I have read this book twice.  Yes friends TWICE!!

So much happens in this book like our Pepper Twin feeling less than his brother.  Like our Salt Twin getting angry at his twin for upsetting their Pretty Girl annnnnd of course Quint being a dominant jackass…wait never mind I love him when he is dominant…ok an over stepping jackass because he forgets Ariel is in control of the 7 relationships…not him.

I love Quint for trying give Ariel good memories of all the holidays she missed as a child.  I also love that he goes over the top in creating these memories that generally make her wanna punch him in the face…LOL  But *Dreamy sigh* he is Quint the Coven Leader.  Taking care of his family is his job and he takes it very serious!

Abel is having an issue with missing Ariel but doesn’t know how to tell her because he feels less then the others including his brother.  The scene with Ariel and Abel fighting broke my heart because she loves him so much and he is just as insecure as she is with all this love stuff.

What scenes I loved the most : the guys feeling a bit freer to touch Ariel and them letting her know they are ready and willing for “more” *Wink* but the showdown with Dash, Quint and Ariel at the end of the book about how “ready” she is….a speechless Quinton is a rare thing!!!!

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

 

#WOTR19 #Review #Standalone – Pieces of Forever by H. D’Agostino

40223998

Does having everything you desire make your life perfect? Does having a perfect life mean you’re happy?

I had a perfect life once upon a time. It was the life I deemed myself deserving of. I had a wife, a child, a successful business. I was happy, but I was also blind.

I didn’t see my faults until it was too late. One moment changed it all. It changed me and cost me everything. Everything I thought I needed to find happiness disappeared, and nothing else mattered.

All that I need is to get a few of the pieces back. Pieces of my perfect forever are the only thing that can make me whole again.

Goodreads

Amazon

I received this book from the authors for an honest review.

This is the story of two broken people who are trying to find their way through life.  Jackson is lost without his wife and daughter.  When life takes them from him, he has had several years of misery until Tessa walks in his bar.

Tessa has a life of questions.  She is looking for answers to her life when she lands a job at the bar Jackson owns.  She is drawn to him like a moth to a flame but knows he doesn’t see her this way.  She has her trusty friend Jules there to help push her out of her box and into Jackson’s bed.  Tessa’s fun loving spirit was fun to read, and I loved how she made Jackson get all super alpha. He made my heart squishy.

When Jackson gets drunk and peruses Tessa, they are both in for a up and down roller coaster of a love story.  One that neither expected. Tessa has to confront her past while Jackson is licking his wounds about his wife and daughter.  The two must confront the demons that haunt them all while trying to stay true to the person they have fallen head over heels in love with.

#WOTR19 #ThrowbackReview – Catching Raindrops (The Sutter Family, #1) by Heather D’Agostino

Catching Raindrops (The Sutter Family, #1)

Ever feel like your entire life has been planned out for you before you were even born?

As the only girl in the Sutter family and daughter of an ‘almost Olympian’, my parents have always had goals for me. I never questioned them and always strived to be the best. I thought I knew what I wanted in life until I didn’t.

One mistake, and the straight path I had planned was suddenly crooked. Goals that I’d worked for since I was little didn’t seem so important anymore; And the one place I never thought I’d go back to was the only place I wanted to be… home, where I found comfort in the most unlikely place.

At six years my senior, Brock Foster has always been unattainable. He was the boy that filled my fantasies. I resigned myself years ago to never feel his touch, never know what his kisses were like, or to have him wrap me in his arms. I never thought when I came home that he would still be there, or that he’d remember me.

Sometimes the future that we think we want isn’t what we need. Sometimes those bumps and turns mold us into who we were always meant to be, and sometimes they lead us to who we should have always been with.

Brock Foster helped me to embrace my path. He taught me to stop and catch the raindrops, and open myself to love again.

Goodreads

Amazon

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.

Returning to the Sutter family is like returning home. Seeing Emma all grown up is wonderful.

Coming homework the summer after being away at school Emma is hiding a lot from her family and when she does tell them she doesn’t tell them everything about why she came home. No one knows the whole truth but her. She doesn’t expect to find the boy of her teenage dreams has come back to town and is all grown up and looking yummy. She wasn’t looking for love, but that is what she found.

Brock wasn’t looking to find someone, he especially wasn’t looking to start dating Emma Sutter. He remembers her as a teen, and now that she is all grown up she just……….. But he knows when she finds out his secret it’s gonna be bad, heck when her dad finds out he’s gonna be dead. Why? Because Nick Sutter is his boss!!!!

D’Agostino never fails to make me cry, even if she isn’t trying too. Emma and Brock are hot and sweet rolled into one. Nick and Leah are everything they were in their story, but better as parents. When Emma has to explain the real reason she came home for the summer, her parents are unbelievably supportive of her and Brock shows what a true man is by listening and following his heart.

When she goes back to school will they be able to make a long distance relationship work? Are her parents still going to support their relationship or will her dad make it so hard for Brock that he has to quit his job? I’m not telling!!!! However, I will tell you this; if you’ve never read The Shattered Series, which is about Emma’s parents, you can totally read this book. It’s the start of a totally new series and you will not be lost. Im looking forward to the next book and I hope that Mel puts Aaron in his place.

Hilarious quick read! If you need a pick me up then this is the book for you. Wicked has decided to move her relationship along with Thorne but overreacts when she sees something without an explanation. Her and Thorne are on the fritz but Bruce is there to back Wicked up. Bruce has got to be one of my favorite characters ever! LOL! Once things get calmed down as neither Wicked nor Thorne are ready to give up on each other they are faced with another bit of excitement! We get more background on Wicked and Thorne both and a wonderful ending to start another installment! Bring it on! Can’t wait!

Goodreads

BookBub

I received this book from the author for an honest opinion.

GAH!!  What a great series starter for people who have not fallen in love with the series OR what a great addition to the series for people like ME who are addicted to the world!!

I loved loved loved getting a super quick glimpse into the beginning of the inter-mixed species Miranda created.  We are seeing Jerome and Suzanne meeting and then fall in love.  We see our yummy Mack as a sweet, innocent Cub before his story happens.

This is a very quick read for people, but you can see how Jerome and Sterling along with super-secret Leo formed the Black Mountain Pack.  We get to see all our favorite shifters before their books and mates appear.

I would have loved for this book to be a bit long because it is a very quick read but its still a great reminder of who we love and why we fell in love with them.

 

If you follow the Black Mountain Pack then you need to read this….if you don’t follow then you need this! The Black Mountain Pack series is an amazing read and we see how Jerome takes care of his inter-species pack but his book really shows the behind the scenes on how the pack was formed and the obstacles he was faced with. This is a super fast read but gives you the glimpse that you need into Jerome’s past and how he meets Suzanne and Mack….and how they stole Jerome’s heart. Again, because it is a fast read,  we get a glimpse into our favorite fox Sterling, the super secret Leo, as well as some of our other favorites and the witch covens. It’s the perfect novella to accompany the Black Mountain Pack series! Can’t wait for more!

Mother to two boys, 3 four legged babies, and wife to a loving husband who doesn’t mind the extra voices in her head. Miranda grew up on a dairy farm in Illinois, but calls Portland, TN home now. She is an avid reader, coffee addict, and loves her day job working at the local public library. Though her true passion is in creating her own worlds, characters, and stories for her readers.

The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity is coming back at you with an all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New Yrk Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen above ground.

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

She just didn’t know.

My father is now gone.

The city and the underbelly are now mine.

The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets, and make her who she’s always been—mine.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

Holy crap on a cracker!!!  Gah!!  This book!!!! #Anxiety #NeedADrink #GodIsHeSexy

Sterling is so alpha, so domineering and so yummy yet I know he is going to break my heart at some point in this series!!  I can already feel it.  There are so many secrets and things he isn’t telling Kennedy/Araneae my anxiety is through the roof!!!  But can we talk about how much of an ass he is and yet he only followed her instruction…Snicker……the airplane scene is the BEST!!!!

Kennedy was thrown a huge curve ball in the beginning of the story and we know once the Sparrow family finds her things will go dark and bad.  Ugh but why does bad have to come in such a yummy package!!!   I feel for her because she is a caring person and it seems caring for others is the weakness that will get her killed.  I only hope she can finally listen to Sterling and realize he is the one trying to protect her from others who want to harm her….or is he?????????

This story is an amazing set up for what is surely to come.  The final scene has me going “Oh snap!!” I mean gahhhh!!!!  I am dying to know what exactly will happen because it seems Sterling didn’t tell our girl the whole story about what is going on and what is happening.

When he tries to start over in a small northern town, a beautiful woman steps into his life and pushes every boundary he sets in place.

I received this book from the authors for an honest review.

I have looked at so many of this authors books but never seem to have the time in my schedule to read them.  Then when I got an ARC form for this book I jumped because it finally worked out.  Now I admit I saw a fireman on the cover ANNNND didn’t read the blurb so when I got the book and found out it has shifter…yup I was even more excited!!  Then to know the shifters are dragons….stop the press!!!                                                             I am allllllllll in!!

Derrick and Halee are so different but such a great match.  She accepts him for the broken man he is wile he accept her for the “Other” parts of her.

Derrick is the whole “ I am an island” type of guy.  He is a broken man because everyone he loves dies and leaves him.  SO he has decided to just be a player then no one gets hurt especially not him.  Halee is a rare full shifter dragon so her brother pushes her to marry another full-blooded shifter to produce more full-blooded shifters.  She is so over this and just runs away for a night of fun…no strings fun if you get my drift.  The two meet, scratch the itch and go home only to find out they will be working together on the same fire department…..oh snap!

Halee and Derrick have a lot to face and deal with.  She wants more, as does he, but he runs.  She tries to help him over come his demons but when Halee is put in danger he runs…typical man!!  Thankfully Derrick has help from his past to help him see that Halle is the one for him. Once he gets his head outta his butt, getting back is woman is the number one goal.

The story is a fun with the family dynamics of Halee and her siblings. The guys in the fire stations are a riot too.  I would love to see Chance and Hope????  Maybe??  But I really cannot wait for Gaelen to find love!!!
