Tempted by the Billionaire Tycoon: Billionaire Romance Book 2

 

Tempted by the Billionaire Tycoon, Jennifer St George
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
Genre: Contemporary romance
Sometimes I just want a simple, uncomplicated romance and this books delivers that. Kind of like an updated 70’s M&B….simple romance but with some hot, spicy sex thrown in!
Nic’s a typical book billionaire, dragged himself up from nothing after refusing to do what his father wants. He was a bully, and made his money by crime, including gambling, drugs and alcohol, so it’s easy to see why Nic is so against those things. He wants his sisters and mother to leave his dad, but they’re too scared of repercussions, so Nic is driven to make more and more money to prove to them they will be safe. Money is power after all – that never changes and was an easy to believe in motive for his striving to be better all the while, to make more money by the success of his business. As a person he’s very confident and hasn’t really got a personal life, just some flings when he needs them – nothing serious, the only thing he’s serious about is business. Now he’s about to float it on the stock market and the English division is causing huge problems in the media, and losing money hand over fist after a series of recent dramas. He wants to fire the GM but his second there says no, it’ll cause problems. Nic decides he’ll go in undercover and catch her out then he can fire her.
Poppy is hiding a secret only Luke, Nic’s second at the resort, knows about. It means she really needs her job, and when she finds out what Nic’s doing she’s desperate to convince him she can sort everything. He’s really attracted to her but doesn’t mix pleasure with business – usually. Something in Poppy keeps making him lose all his sensible reasons though, tempting him to break his resolve. Then part of her secret comes out…just after they’d got closer, very much closer and its a dramatic scene. I understood what she was doing and why, but also that Nic had to stick to his line, make one exception and others will be complaining. The system only works if its rigidly followed, that’s the only fair way but its heart-breaking for Poppy. Even Nic I felt sorry for – he didn’t know the full story so how could he guess what motivated Poppy.
Then there’s the dangers running through the story, which seem to be stacking up and becoming more personal and aimed at Poppy – I had a couple of guesses at who was behind them, but Jennifer threw in some diversions that put me off track!
Its a fun read, nothing too dramatic and heart stopping but a fun read and a HEA – I need those.
Stars: Four, excellent easy to read romance.

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.
