Taken by Him: A Billionaire’s Club Story Red Garnier.


Taken by Him: A Billionaire's Club Story (The Billionaire's Club)

ARC supplied by Netgalley.

The Billionaire’s Club is a series new to me and although there’s already one book out each are stand alone so it was no problem to read this not having read book one. The books share characters and this one is about one of the members, Luke Preston. Playboy Luke has been shot by a jealous lover, and the police have yet to capture him so his friends persuade him to lay low for a while and take a sex break. Unheard of for Luke but he agrees after some persuasion on their part. They’ve been friends along time and he knows they have his best interest at heart.

However only a short while into his break on a secluded Cancun resort he sees Peyton, and his attraction is immeadiate…and Peyton is there hoping for a fling to shake off some of the staidness her life has become.

I liked both characters, really felt for Peyton with her determination to let go and yet still she felt afraid of what she was doing. Once she took the plunge though she was a wildcat and it was great to feel her grown in confidence. Luke took a bit of time to warm to – he started as a typical arrogant, selfish manwhore – “they all know the score so..” is his feelings about his love them and leave them lifestyle. He doesn’t care if the ladies end up broken hearted as he feels he’s given fair warning. Well of course this time the boot is on the oter foot. The novel is quite short at just 112 pages so of necessity the action takes place over the first few days then a gap of a few weeks and another few days interaction. In a short novel such as this it works well rather than trying to cover too long a time span and lose the essence of the book.

Its hot and steamy, with smouldering sex scenes. The attraction between Luke and Peyton is instant on both sides and the sexual tension leaps of the page until she says “yes” – then its all action and non stop sex for the couple. Inevitably the stay comes to an end and they go their seaprate ways and thats when Luke discovers this time he’s at the other end and what is he going to do about it?

Its a great fun romance with a HEA – well written and edited and packed with emotion. The scenes are very realistic and I felt that the couple could easily be real, the settings and the action blended so easily.

I’m not really a novella fan, but I did enjoy this and for a quick easy read to make you feel good and brighten your mood this is just perfect. It doesn’t have great drama, no deep dark plots as its not got the length, and Red sensibility focusses on what will work best – a simple, emotive, erotic love story.

Priced at £1.98 for 112 pages it’s at the upper end of my personal VFM scale but for those who love to re-read a short, steamy romance it’s better value of course. Horses for courses and all that….


Stars: four – great fun, hot read but a one off for me.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
