ARC Book Review:
I was introduced to Jessica Lemmon's writing when I read her book, The Billionaire Bachelor which is also the first book in Billionaire Bad Boys series. I absolutely loved her book and her writing style and the rest is history.
The Bastard Billionaire is the third book in Billionaire Bad Boys series and narrates the story of Eli Crane, the middle Crane sibling we all heard about repeatedly in the previous two books but meet as a hero first hand only in this story.
Eli Crane got wounded on duty and is now a honourably discharged Marine trying to piece together his life which does not involve getting a desk job in Crane Hotels but his family is relentless in their pursuit to draw him in the family business.
I laughed, cried and wholeheartedly enjoyed Eli's gruff beastly behaviour to get all his family-appointed secretaries to flee and loved how the latest secretary and our heroine, Isabella Sawyer stood up to him.
Their chemistry is instant, hot and explosive. I absolutely loved this couple and enjoyed each and every twist and turn in their love story. Being a huge admirer of protagonists who brave all challenges and setbacks to make the best of their situation, I rooted for both Eli and Isabella.
Meeting the Crane family again was a pleasure and a delight to see all my favourite couples from this series living their dream life.
The plot is expertly executed and the pace is racy, engaging and had me turning pages eagerly to know what happened next!
All in all, The Bastard Billionaire by Jessica Lemmon is the best book in this series and a real entertainer that I know I'll reread. 5 out of 5 stars to it from me and strongly recommended to all adult lovers of romance. Jessica Lemmon is a talented writer and an author whose writing I want to read more and more in the future.
I received an ARC from the author and the publishers and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.
