Plot and Story Line
I had many mixed feelings about this book and I admit, I did have some high hopes since I have really enjoyed this author previously. But I had certain issues with Greer, she wasn’t my favorite character. In fact, I think she took things to the extreme at times. I understand why she was so mad at Asher in the beginning—heck any woman would be pissed but she takes things too far. There is a scene when she confronts him with the truth and even though it bothered me a bit, what she does afterward I had more issues with. I don’t like that she wanted to practically force him to sign his parental rights over—-for myself, that is NEVER okay to do especially when its apparent he cares. Even with the way he hurts her, I couldn’t understand why she was so bitter. But Asher was a character I grew to love!! He proves himself in this one. Even if he gets a bit underhanded, in trying to be close to Greer, I could see the reason behind it. He definitely knows how to grovel and well. The writing is very engaging, and I couldn’t put it down. Its one of my favorite aspects of the story, is even though there were some character flaws I had trouble with, at the same time the authors writing was very compelling and kept me fascinated with certain events. I enjoyed the bantering of the group of friends here though and loved seeing characters from previous books I have read. If you like seeing a man forced to grovel a bit and a sweet and short romance story—pick it up!!
Interesting, probably one of the better of her covers. I like the blue.
The Billionaire’s Worst Mistake is a likable story with some fun moments and intriguing elements!!
