Alison Aimes's Besting the Billionaire is an enemies to lovers story, and Alexander Kazanov and Lily Bennett sure do begin on opposite sides of the conference room table. He's aiming to take over the company she has just inherited from her late husband. He expects a fluffy-headed trophy wife. She shows him how unwise it is to underestimate her.
Ms Aimes writes a well paced, exciting, emotionally satisfying story. Will definitely be looking for more of her work!
Lily Bennett's elderly husband has died and made her the CEO of his family business in his will but the vultures are circling, including her two step-sons, her husband had been ill for a long time and allowed the business to falter. Can Lily exert control over the Board and rescue the business before their business rivals snap them up?
Russian billionaire Alexander 'Alexi' Kazankov will do anything to acquire Lily Bennett's business, fair or foul, in order to right a terrible wrong done to the closest thing he ever had to a mother growing up, Lena. He thinks it will be a cinch to offer his rival's widow a whole load of money to sell him the business, if she won't sell at first he will persuade the rest of the Board to back him in a hostile take-over.
Lily might look like a blonde bimbo but she is anything but, her marriage was one in name only but she had great respect for the man who rescued her from a life of abuse and kept her safe. She fully intends to honour the terms of her husband's will and rebuild the company. No sexy, bossy Russian billionaire is going to stand in her way.
Now this is how to write a category romance that just leaps of the page. Yes, Alexi was the stereotypical Russian billionaire, ruthless and domineering. But his dominance was offset by his humour and Lily's intelligence. I loved the way they tried to one-up one another in persuading the rest of the Board to back their bid for power, all the time barely restraining themselves from ripping each others' clothes off! But as the competition hots up someone is attacking Lily - who is it? And when push comes to shove will Alexi choose Lily or Lena?
I loved this, it was funny, smokin' hot, had a bit of suspense and kept me reading waaay into the small hours of the night.
I will definitely look for other books by Alison Aimes, after all she has a wonderful first name!
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
There are pre conceived notions on both these characters parts, they are misunderstood and make assumptions about the other. This leads to them erecting these emotional walls when dealing with each other – BUT the FIRE – THE CHEMISTRY in undeniable – they cannot fight the force pulling them together.
They each want/need something from the other – the constant battle of the wills and mind games are rampant. No one wants to be the one to give in, to be the weak on in the other’s eyes. I wanted to shout at times – open up be honest with each other – you could see the struggle, the desire to give in to this person that is slowly consuming them body and soul.
Life is full of choice, and with those come with consequences. Lily and Alexi never anticipated their feelings and the monumental monkey wrench it threw into their meticulous plans.
Will they give in to their passion? Or will they choose love or obligation? This was a solid read with strong characters, witty humor and lots of STEAM. This was my first book by this author and look forward to future works
