Despite having a penchant for having a "one and done" mentality when it comes to his dates, Reese is completely dedicated to Crane Hotels. His personal life has never impacted the way he does his job, and he doesn't think it should come into account when naming him CEO. Regardless, he's out to play the board of directors' game to get what he wants. So enters Merina Van Heusen.
Merina's parents own a small, yet beloved hotel that she helps run. When she finds out her parents sold the hotel to Crane Hotels, and that Crane plans on doing a complete renovation of the historical building, Merina has a few choice words for Reese Crane.
Reese's proposal is simple, if Merina agrees to marry him and help him turn around his reputation to gain CEO, in six months he'll hand over a divorce and the deed to her hotel.
Backed into a corner, Merina agrees. But both Reese and Merina are not prepared for the chemistry that arises between them, and they both find that what started as convenient might turn into love.
Typically the marriage of convenience trope is not at the top of my list of favorites. It's not that I don't like them, they're just not one of my favs. Well, that is, except when Jessica Lemmon writes them I suppose because I really loved this book.
On the surface, both Merina and Reese are people who deeply care for the hotels they run. They are both extremely dedicated to the jobs they've built and all the aspects involved. They clash with one another because neither wants to give up the control. From their first meeting the chemistry between Reese and Merina jumps right off the page. I just loved how everything built up between them. How even when they were at odds with one another, there was no denying they are both extremely attracted to one another.
Building up from the undeniable attration, they begin to learn about the parts of themselves they keep hidden from everyone else. They learn each others' vulnerabilities and past mistakes. There's a reason why Reese doesn't date women for long periods of time, and hasn't been in a serious relationship in years. In this, both Reese and Merina find some common ground. But as things tend to happen, the past only stays buried for so long. Jessica Lemmon's writing, the progression of the relationship between Reese and Merina, flowed so nicely. The road to love is not easily paved, it's hard work and there are bumps along the way to happiness. This comes across perfectly in Merina and Reese's relationship.
Jessica Lemmon has become an auto-buy author for me and The Billionaire Bachelor is a great start to a new series.
I can't wait to see how the other Crane brothers' stories play out. Next up is Tag, and third will be elusive brother Eli. Side note: I'm seriously hoping we get more page time for Merina's best friend Lorelei. I felt like there is more to tell in her story.
I love the fake to real romance/trope but I'm not always a fan of the billionaire trope. They tend to feel a bit too far fetched for my taste but, thankfully, that was so not the case with this story.
Reese was the billionaire and he did have an arrogant edge but he never felt overly flaunting of his wealth. Well, except for that time he blackmailed Merina into marrying him or else he would destroy her families hotel. Reese came off as a bit of a jerk in the beginning on the book but as we slowly got to know him it was pretty difficult not to fall in love with him.
I adored Merina and her ballsiness (is that a word?). I love how she didn't even hesitate to speak her mind with Reese and how she went after what she wanted from him. Even when he tried to push her away she stood her ground and made it clear where she stood.
The chemistry between the two of them was hot but their playfulness was what really made me fall for them. Merina definitely brought out Reese's softer side.
This book was sexy and sweet and everything I've come to enjoy about Jessica Lemmon's writing style. It's easy to fall in love with characters and a story when you feel connected to them as personal friends and Jessica has a way of pulling you right into the world your reading about.
I cannot wait to see what's in store for Tag and to finally get to meet the mysterious Eli.
