The New Billionaire Boys Club novel by the New York Times bestselling author.
The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society. Six men of astonishing wealth. But there’s one thing money can’t buy. When it comes to love, success doesn't come so easily...
Jonathan Lyons. Playboy, billionaire, and adventurer, he lives life on the edge. When he hears that his mentor, Dr. Phineas DeWitt, had a secret journal that leads to a legendary artifact, Jonathan takes action. It stirs his blood, but it comes with a heady challenge: DeWitt's daughter Violet. She has what Jonathan needs. And she’s not giving it up it to the man who broke her heart.
Violet is Jonathan’s weakness—he’s still in love despite their volatile breakup a decade ago. But Violet’s memories have a sharper edge. She’s never forgiven him for abandoning her. Or so she thought. When Jonathan’s attentions turn seductive, she’s in danger of falling for him all over again. And she can’t help but wonder... does he really want her, or just what she's hiding?
Jonathan Lyons, a multi billionaire and adventurer of the world is beyond curious when he hears that his past mentor Dr. DeWitt has a hidden journal and artifact and left in the hands of his daughter….the one woman that has held his heart for ten years, and the one woman he hurt and betrayed more than anyone else, and he sees this as his chance to rekindle the love they once had and work toward making her forgive him for his past sins. Violet, was young and innocent and full of life when she met Jonathan, and fell in love with him while on a dig with her father. But when she found herself pregnant and thought Jonathan had spurned her and she left and now she has changed. She is stronger but now she will have to face the past again and the hurt and mistrust she feels in regards to her father and the only man she has ever loved.
Jonathan Lyons, was young and in college when he met Violet and he fell hard for the young sweet girl that shared his passions in and out of the bedroom. But he made a foolish mistake and she was gone before he could go after her. He rebuilt his father’s company and traveled the world, seeing all the sights he had dreamed of, but never forgot Violet and never was able to love another, she has always been a part of him. Now I really liked Jonathan for the most part, and he makes the best swoony hero especially when things get serious between him and Violet again. What I liked was how devoted and true he was even though they hadn’t been together for ten years.
I wanted you for myself. I’ve never stopped loving you. Never stopped wanting you. Every second of every day, my heart has always been yours
There were these little things he did that were heartbreaking and sweet. And he never gave up trying to get her back although he would go to certain extremes sometimes.
Violet, grew up in a broken home. Her father was always gone on some dig somewhere, and her mother was drunk or sleeping most of the time. She never had the opportunity to learn about trust or love in a healthy relationship. Violet struggles with trust, because of the type of mother she grew up with. And learned to not to trust her father, and when she found herself pregnant and alone she was broken but became stronger than ever, more independent and not needing to rely on a man. She became a school teacher and learned the beauty of growing from past mistakes and moving on. What I liked about Violet was that despite her past, she has such a strong spirit, a bit too stubborn and does make some mistakes and could be a bit harsh, but you understand why she mistrusts Jonathan.
Plot and Story Line
Jessica Clare never ceases to amaze me and I think I will always love her writing…no matter what genre she is writing under, I always fall in love even with certain plots that I was unsure about. I will admit, that I was nervous about this one, probably why it took so long to read this. But I quickly became engrossed in this story and just didn’t want to put it down. What I truly enjoyed about this one was seeing the way that the emotional drama took a serious play in this book. Now normally the heat of this series has sometimes been a bit too much but I really liked the way this story developed. I did feel that sometimes the drama between these two become a bit too much. Sometimes the heroine especially could be too harsh at times, and so there were times I wish she wouldn’t be so hard toward Jonathan. I understand why, but she could be mean at times. Its the hero that really surprised me, because even though he could be arrogant and outrageous with his money, he was kind and devoted to her in such a beautiful way.
From this moment on, you’re fully mine. Body and soul.
I love the gold colors here….I have a weakness for gold covers, probably because they are so rarely used and I like the shape of the heart in form of jewelry here.
Romancing The Billionaire is such a beautiful story in many ways….the emotion, the adventure of searching for hidden treasures and seeing these two finding love again with the classic writing of this author that draws the reader in!!
