Tag is fine being labeled as a ladies man. He doesn't let his entanglements last long, but he always lets them down gently. No hurt feelings. But something is different about Rachel. From the moment he set eyes on her, he hasn't been able to get her out of his head. Maybe it's because she doesn't seem impressed with his money. Maybe it's how, no matter what, she values her independence more than anything and doesn't take his generous handouts. Whatever the reason, he's determined to break the walls she's built around herself, and possibly end up breaking a few of his in the process.
I really wasn't prepared for how much I would love Tag and Rachel's story. I mean everything about their story was pretty much spot on in terms of what I like to read in my romances.
I loved the subtly of their burgeoning relationship. I mean there is chemistry from the first moment Tag spots Rachel leaving Crane Tower one evening. When she's just, at that point in time, a nameless woman walking to a car to go to work. While reading, I really felt like what Rachel and Tag were building between them ended up catching me, the reader, off guard just as much as it catches them off guard when they realize maybe their feelings for one another run deeper than just sex. But it works so well.
I also very much appreciated the way Jessica Lemmon deals with Rachel's past relationship with her ex-boyfriend. Taking the notion of subtly to another level, you see that sometimes in relationships it's what the other person doesn't do, or maybe just an offhand comment that they make, that can effect the way you feel about yourself. That the small or quieter comments reiterated over and over can hurt a person just as much as the more overt acts. I loved the way Tag handled Rachel's insecurities, and that he never made her feel bad about them, and they were never used as a conflict between them.
I enjoyed Tag and Rachel's story more than Reese and Merina's honestly (sorry guys!). I look forward to hopefully catching up with them more in Eli's story, The Bastard Billionaire, next. And speaking on the heretofore unseen Crane brother, we're finally introduced to Eli, although not as one would expect, which just makes him finally getting his HEA all the more essential. I look forward to his story.
Jessica Lemmon outdid herself with this one. This series is highly recommended!
The Billionaire Next Door, Jessica Lemmon
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
My second Jessica Lemmon read, like the previous one I enjoyed its a fun read, light, happy, no deep, dark dramas, no tears and heartbreak, sometimes that's just the kind of book I’m in the mood for, one to relax and enjoy, not rack my brains putting together plots, working out who fits where.
One thing I have to say – towards the end Tag’s brother comes in, injured in Afghanistan. As an amputee I can say that part was very, very real. I had many of those feelings Eli has, frustration, despair, anger. The phantom pains, sadly very real,like pins and needles but in a body part no longer there so you can’t rub it, try to restore circulation. Its a weird feeling, and along with pain from where the nerves are cut can be very distressing. If you can imagine having an electric shock run through the remaining limb every 10-20 seconds, for hours at a time and no pain relief seems to stop them you’ve got the idea of never pain. Fortunately it doesn't happen too often now.
So we’ve Rachel, cheated on by her ex, she’s now lost her home and job too and is bartending and sharing with a friend while she picks up her life.
I like Rachel, she’s determined to be self reliant, and is a hard worker, not a moan-and-wail-poor-me type of lady. At her bartending job one of the regulars offers her his home for a month so long as she dog sits Adonis, his Great Dane. He’s got to travel unexpectedly and his regular dog sitter can’t do it. It brings her into the sphere of the delicious Tag, who owns the building and lives in the penthouse above.
Tag’s gorgeous, middle son of the wealthy Crane family, he’s made his own way, made his own money and since his fathers retirement he works with his older brother running the Crane hotels.
He loves his job, travelling, enjoying life, picking up and loving ladies, and leaving them with a smile when he looks to be turning anywhere close to serious. He’s a great guy and all that works for him, and he can’t understand why people like his brother and his best friend Lucas want to settle with one person – that doesn’t sound good to him, Not At All!
Then he and Rachel meet, she’s a little intimidated by him, tattooed man mountain, bearded, mane of hair right down his back. she’s no idea who he is, but sees Playboy written all over him and after her ex she’s staying far away. Tag won’t let her though, he’s entranced by her, loves that she doesn’t know who he is, doesn’t have expectations and demands as the ladies he meets usually do, and he’s determined they’ll get closer – much closer.
Of course he gets his way, and slowly Rachel opens out....
That's fun, and there’s some really sensual, scorching scenes, well written, fit the story perfectly, and when every other romance seems determines that Sex Sells, and we’re inundated with scenes that are thrown it for that purpose, rather than fitting the story, its a welcome change to find ones that are a treat to read.
Then of course just when its going well it isn’t. having brought Rachel out of her shell Tag starts having a few problems.....well, the love them and leave them smiling playboy can't change overnight can he? There’s no cheating, I don’t mean that, but Tag wonders just what he’s doing, where he’s going and why things need to change....but something happens that make Rachel wonder what the future holds for them.
I enjoyed this, loved the parts in Hawaii, loved Rachel and her determination not to be a “kept” woman, not to have Tag just give her things, open doors etc. but wanting to make her own way.
Tag was a gem, a really warm hearted and fun person. I loved how he slowly realised just what Rachel was coming to mean to him, and his reaction to that. It fitted well with the family background.
I’d like to read book one in this series, and look forward to Eli’s story, having a kind of empathy for his position.
Stars: Four, its a sensual and spicy book, a light, escapist read.
