The Billionaire in Her Bed
by Regina Kyle

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Real estate mogul Eli Ward needs to keep a low profile on his new project. He’s expecting a fight from the somewhat eclectic folks currently living there. What he doesn’t expect is for that fight to be led by Brooke Worthington, the woman who rocked his world one unforgettable night. The one woman who doesn’t know who he is, which is a good thing. She just sees him as a regular guy. It’s refreshing.

Graphic designer and part-time bartender Brooke Worthington refuses to follow her family’s plan for her. She’s too busy building her artistic career. She doesn’t have time for relationships, either, especially with the super hot Eli, because she has to save the building she lives in with people she thinks of as her real family from some greedy real estate billionaire.

These two have secrets and chemistry that is nothing short of explosive.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt Three:

“One night.” She stared at a spot over his shoulder, desperate for something to distract her from the overwhelming scent of him, soap and sandalwood and sweat. No dice.

“It was supposed to be one night.”

“Do you believe in fate?”

His warm breath danced across her cheek and tickled her ear.

“Because it seems to be telling us otherwise.”

No, she didn’t. She believed in hard work and perseverance. Why else would she still be banging her head against the wall trying to get a top-drawer publisher interested in her novel?
She went for sarcastic, hoping it would scare him off.

“Maybe it’s telling me you’re a stalker.”

“Who doesn’t know your last name yet somehow found out where you live and rented an apartment in your building?”

She gave a half-hearted shrug. “Could happen.”

“Or it could be when I met you that night at Flotsam and Jetsam I was apartment hunting, and I was as surprised to see you at the tenants’ meeting as you were to see me. Call it a happy coincidence.”

“I don’t believe in coincidence, either.”

“What do you believe in?” His baby blues, mysterious and mesmerizing, bored into hers.

“Luck?”

She broke free from his spellbinding gaze, dragging her eyes down to his awe-inspiring chest and focusing on the fire-engine red “ALL” in the center of his Metallica T-shirt.

“Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.”

“Then it looks like this is my lucky day.”

“Why is that?”

“Because this is my opportunity to convince you the universe wants us to spend some time together.” He slid a finger under her chin and lifted her face to his. “And I’m prepared to stay right here until you agree.”

 

What can I say?  It’s another Indulgence which is my crack of choice in reading.  I won’t bore you with my love for the line or the tropes that are associated with it.  But I will have to say that this is one of the better Indulgence books that I’ve read in a while.  Why do I say this?  Because this book deals with two people that not only have secrets about themselves but also the impact of real estate developers buying properties and then displacing the current residents.  Ms. Kyle doesn’t preach about it but the way that she tells the show is how much I loved this book.

Ms. Kyle not only incorporates how Eli comes to live at the building where Brooke lives but how the residents at the building slowly become his friends.  Doesn’t hurt that Eli and Brooke get to spend a lot of time together getting to know each other and have unlimited smexy times but Ms. Kyle has some of the best secondary characters that I’ve read in some time.  Between David & Chris, Charise and the baby and the Feingolds, you get the sense of community right from the start and I fell in love with all of them.

The chemistry between Eli and Brooke is off the charts but what I really liked about them is their ability to actually get to know each other.  Of course, these two have massive secrets but it’s NOT what you think.  In fact, I think that their secrets are somewhat anti-climatic.  Sure, sure the secrets are revealed near the end of the book but Eli and Brooke had already made that connection and fell in love.  I loved both Eli and Brooke from the start.  No major skeletons in the closet just two people that didn’t expect to find each other and fall in love.

I just loved this book and Ms. Kyle’s style of writing.  She writes tightly and to the point.  There are no unnecessary fillers in her story.  I liked Eli and Brooke’s sister…a lot.  I feel like Brooke’s sister needs her own story.  I loved her and how she really is there for Brooke, regardless of their parents.

Overall, this is one the best Indulgence books that I’ve read.  It’s tight, sexy, relevant and the characters are fantastic.  I looked forward to reading more from Ms. Kyle.

When Skye Harris shows up on the Devil’s Playground’s doorstep asking the Brotherhood for help with a gang taking over her hometown, it’s time for Finn Storm to step up. The bikers might be tough but he’s tougher – and armed with Brotherhood tech and a warrior’s heart he’s going to get the job done, no matter what or who stands in his way.

EXCERPT #2

Skye put her empty coffee cup in the sink. It was almost time to leave for work, and she hadn’t heard anything from the spare room since getting up that morning. It was hard to resist knocking on his door, using the excuse of checking in to see Finn before leaving.

Then he walked down the hallway and into the kitchen, and she lost her train of thought.

He wore only his jeans, otherwise barefoot and bare-chested. The whisper of day-old stubble on his chin added to his appeal, giving him a rugged look. Finn scratched his jaw, eyes still half shut, and it was easy to imagine him lying in bed, rolling over and giving her that same heavy-lidded smile after a night of serious lovemaking.

She bit down on her tongue, remembering her naughty thoughts of the previous evening.

Finn nodded. “Hoped I’d catch you before you left. Got some work today?”

“I’ve got another shift at the diner before doing some late-night cleaning at the real estate offices, so I’ll be popping in and out, plus visiting Robby.” She glanced at the calendar stuck on the refrigerator door. “Tomorrow’s Sunday. I’ll be picking up the usual shift from the Watleys, minding the store for them while they go to church. Eight until noon.”

“That’s a lot of work at a whole lot of different places.” Finn took down a coffee mug and poured himself a cup. “Can’t you find steady full-time work?”

“Not around here.” She fought to keep her tone light. “It’s been that way for years. Businesses come and go, and it’s easier for a lot of them to hire more part-time workers than full-time. So I gather up my shifts, and in the end, they add up to forty hours or more, depending on the week.”

“Rough way to live.” Finn reached over and squeezed her hand. “You’re one tough lady, Skye Harris.”

 

OMG!  This book.  Finn.  Skye.  Suspense.  Romance.  The unknown.  A brotherhood of ex-military heroes that fight the good fight.  Yes, this book has it all for me.  I will admit that I didn’t read Dylan and Jessie’s book but trust me, everything is explained in the beginning.  However, I’m intrigued by their story so I bought the other book.

The biggest impression that the book left me was how strong Skye was.  Typically in romantic suspense, the heroine needs to be saved some how but not our Skye.  I felt her anger and frustration when it came to the gang and especially its leader.  I loved how one of the gang member’s, Jake played in the story.  In the end, though, I didn’t feel sorry for him.  Robby, Skye’s brother, is a major character (in some ways) and I liked how he progressed in the story.  The ending with kinda broke my heart but I understood why he did it.

The romance between Finn and Skye is believable.  It could have been instalove, which I hate, but in the end, it was sweet.  Neither one of them was looking for it and it just kinda snuck up on them.  In my opinion, Finn had the most to achieve in that department.  He wasn’t cut off from relationships but he felt like his job would get in the way.  Skye, on the other hand, loved him with her whole heart and near the end of the book, I wondered how she was going to just leave her heart with Finn and move on.

For a suspense book, there isn’t that much action until the very end.  Ms. Nantus does an awesome job with the scenes in the diner.  😉  Plus, we get the final showdown with the gang leader.  Ouch!  Skye proved her mantle with me and I will say that she is one of the strongest heroines in romantic suspense that I’ve read in a long time.

Do yourself a favor and read this book.  It’s emotional, at times gritty with a great romance between two realistic characters that you will love in the end.  I feel that Trey’s book is next but I could be wrong.  Loved him.

EXCERPT

“Welcome to Latin American History.”

At that deep, lightly accented voice, my pen fell to the paper, as useless as my brain.

“This class will also serve as your Study At Sea seminar, which means I have the joy of getting to know each of you very well over the next three months since you’ll be writing a thirty-page thesis for me.”

The class groaned, and I slowly dragged my eyes from the paper, past the neck of the red-haired boy in front of me, to the man who stood at the head of our class, casually leaning against his desk. I took in the way his pants hugged his hips, the contrast of his rolled white button-down against his tanned skin, and the loose green tie at his throat. My gaze caught on his lips, the strong line of his nose and cheekbones, to the melty chocolate eyes that were focused on the other side of the room as he addressed the students there. His hair looked like he’d run his hands through it more than a few times, and his teeth flashed white when he grinned, those panty-dissolving dimples appearing.

My heart stopped beating and my breath froze in my lungs, as if the slightest motion would make him disappear. A rush of heat flushed my skin, and the knot in my chest loosened, unraveling as surely as my body had the last time I’d seen him.

“So let’s get started, shall we? I just flew in from the States today, but I’ll be sure to learn all of your names by the end of the week. Now if you’ll let me have this moment, I’ve been waiting eight years to say it— My name is Dr. Delgado.”

Two thoughts slammed into me simultaneously.

One—Delgado. At least now I knew his last name.

Two—Holy. Fucking. Shit. Cruz was my professor.
