First, we have Tess. She's come to Texas to flee her cheating ex-boyfriend. As a graphic designer, she can work anywhere that she has the internet, so she's set up an office in her new lake-front home. The cabin needs quite a bit of remodeling so she plans to do that a little at a time.
Then we have Carter, her next door neighbor. His wife died tragically two years ago and he still hasn't found it in him to move on. He's focusing on his professional football career and his twin six-year-old daughters and has time for nothing else.
So of course, when you throw them together, sparks ensue. There was quite a bit of sex for such a short book and none of it was particularly exciting. The chemistry was just okay.
I wanted to like this book, I really did. It just seemed like the author tried to hit too many different themes, but couldn't quite stick any one of them. He's a billionaire (of course this is mentioned in the title) but he doesn't live like one, act like one, have anything to do with money except say that he has it. He's a widower, but the book never really gets terribly emotional. It's mentioned, of course, and it's a huge plot point, but it didn't really hit me in the feels. He's a superstar football player but doesn't act like it, doesn't play the game in the book, nor are there any other athletes in the story. It seemed more to me that the author was trying to capitalize on all the popular themes, but didn't really want to do any one very well.
I'd still pick up one of Baxter's books, but I sure hope her next one hits the spot a little better than this one did!
The author gives you wonderful sweet characters that you can relate to along with wonderful supporting characters who tell it like it is. This is a fast read with a fast pace where you find friendship, love, laughter and need along with some very heated scenes. Carter might play football for the cowboys but he is really a down to earth man who puts family first. He isn’t looking for love or a one nightstand he just wants to raise his twins and give them a good life. When the lady moves in next door and her hot temper cuts him to the soul he takes a second look and finds he can’t walk away. He won’t give in to the passion his wife is still too much a part of him. I really liked Carter, I adored his twins and his brothers. All want what is best for this family and will push him to see them happy.
Tess doesn’t like Carter at first but he grew on her. Those twins of his take her heart and runs with it. She too isn’t looking for love but finds she can’t walk away from the hot man who makes her crazy. Tess is really down to earth and has no idea who Carter is. She is just taking time away from people to live a quite life and get over being betrayed by her ex. She is sweet, caring and loving who believes in helping.
The author gives you a well written story filled of pain, sorrow, starting over, fear, need, passion, and a HAE. You can feel Carters struggles of work, being a single father and doing what is best for all of them. You can feel his love for his dead wife and the struggles he has of moving on without her along with starting a new relationship. He always puts his girls first never wanting a woman to come into their lives not only leaving him but his girls. This really was a heart touching read that I couldn’t put down. I thought this was a delightful read that most will enjoy.

This novella was a quick read, but did not leave you wanting for anything. sure their was insta- love, adorable twins, an appreciative single woman, with a bad experience in her past. Oh, and of course one hunky billionaire , but what I love the most about Ms baxter's billionaires is that the money is not everything, they do not flaunt it to get attention and for that matter would prefer to not even have it; or people to know they have it!
In this novella we get to know Carter Christenson a little better, if y have been reading along I the series we have met him already, never fear this is a standalone.
Carter lost his wife to cancer two years ago and struggles juggle hi career as a pro quarterback and single father, to twin girls . Trying to arrange quality time with his girls Jane and Jenny he takes them to his summer home in Nachognes, we're thanks to his exhausting twins he gets the opportunity to meet his new neighbor Tess and just like with his first wife Stephanie, he know that Tess is it for him going foward, but he struggles with his feelings for Tess, his fear that if he starts a relationship with her. And it fails his girls would be hurt , but also how he might handle it, what ensues is some hot sexy times together, when the girls are away which only leads more to Carter questioning himself about what he feels especially since he is sporting a hefty amount of guilt at feeling for someone else what he felt for his deceased wife .
Wonderfully written and with a lovely HEA!
