From USA Today bestselling author, Nina Levine, comes a new standalone, bossy-billionaire romance.
It was a bad start to my week.
Or shall I say, he was a bad start to my week.
Presumptuous, arrogant asshole.
He barrelled into my office and demanded I sell him my property.
I said no. Never.
He said everything is for sale.
He also said he always gets what he wants.
Well, Ashton Scott can kiss my ass. He’s not getting this.
There’s one problem with that.
The man just doesn’t give up. And now he’s decided he wants me, too.
He’s sexy AF.
He wears a suit like nobody’s business.
And his bossiness turns me on in ways I can’t even understand.
But I’m not going down without a fight.
Or at least, I wasn’t…
My fight is what Ashton loves the most.
Of course it is.

Right ladies! Now you have the opportunity to one-click a book which I’d read chapter by chapter before publishing. It’s an incredibly sexy read and the author’s modus operandi couldn’t have been better. Left on a cliffy of sorts between each short installment, my definition of this intense romance has to be erotically angst-ridden. Doubts, fears and the heroine’s insecurities are woven into the story over quite a short time span, making it a real page-turner. I even asked myself whether her two lovebirds would be able to find a status quo, their happy ending. Not an unreasonable wish since meeting in the middle, understanding each other’s up and downs and ins and out isn’t so complicated if strong feelings are involved. Ashton Scott’s story told from a dual perspective presents all these sentiments in detail.
“I think Ashton Scott has a carefully considered strategy for everything in life.”
I going to have to put the author’s MC series at the top of my endless TBR pile because if her persuasive narrative and the solid plot in this book is anything to go by, I’m obviously missing out. Not only did I like the way my patience was tried with a couple of suspect secondary characters who go out of their way to complicate matters, but also how lessons can be learned for those of us who have trouble listening or observing. I couldn’t ignore what I thought was impossible regarding her protagonists’ situation. Let me get something straight. Although steaminess sizzles off the pages, is this enough for Ashton and Lorelei to combat certain issues? Ashton’s full of himself. I mean… Full. Of. Himself.
“You will learn that while I’ll allow you to fight me, I’ll never allow you to deny me when I truly want something.”
It’s as if the noun no is non-existent in Ashton’s vocabulary. Irritating and enrapturing all rolled into one gorgeous swoon-worthy man, nothing has been given to him on a silver plate. He knows what he wants in both his personal and professional life; is protective towards those he cherishes, and a true troubleshooter when family disputes arise. I smiled more than once at the brotherly advice he gave his sister, Alessandra, and often wondered if he’d be able to put it into practice. At the same time, his loved ones including his adorable secretary give as good as they get.
‘There are only three people in my life who get away with speaking to me this way–Jessica, my sister, Alessandra and my friend Jack.’
Lorelei is her own woman. Goal-driven, her ambitions aren’t in the slightest bit outrageous. She has her reasons for being stubborn and convincing her otherwise would cause distress. I have to add that I liked her one hell of a lot, and her concern in respect to Ashton’s unyielding stance I found justifiable. But for me, there’s nothing like a strong sassy female willing to stand up for herself. Especially seeing that Ashton’s business arrogance and overpowering bossiness in the bedroom isn’t what she’s used to. Question is whether Lorelei is prepared to bend…or is he?
“You basically told her you don’t think much of her ability to achieve her goal. And that, little brother, is a sure-fire way to upset a woman.”
I’m a sucker for banter and believe you me, the author’s delivered dirty-talking fan-grabbing dialogue in scenes which will make your panties melt! I did feel that the two unlikable individuals’ stories could have been developed more in the respect that I still want to know what becomes of them. In fact, I have my theories, so maybe a spin-off wouldn’t be asking for too much, nudge! I couldn’t help sympathising with Ashton’s best friend Jack, an amicable chap with some serious problems, I really liked the way his friends gathered around him. And I really enjoyed the rapport between him, Lorelei and a couple of other reliable folks, hmm… once again, I felt I was missing out on something here. That being said, it is Ashton and Lorelei’s story, so I’ll just have to keep my fingers crossed and hope the author makes my dream come true. All in all, I found Nina’s well-written stand-alone novel a joy to read. Bravo!
