For a fairly short read, around 25K words that I read in a few hours on a Saturday, I found this to be a solid, interesting story with interesting and multifaceted characters. The pace of the story flowed really well, and I especially liked how the time lapse between the final chapter and the epilogue took place to show that things had evolved in a really satisfying way that didn’t happen too quickly. Major kudos for this!
Aside from the main characters, I found myself really liking the character of Dorian Pennington. She sounds like someone I’d really like in real life. I found her character to have a good, unique voice, and I could tell when she was talking, even without any dialogue tags, as was the case with other minor characters.
As for the author’s tag-line, “80% sweet, 20% heat,” I found this to be a good balance to let the story itself shine through. I did find the “heat” scene to be pretty hot, too!
I think this book might be the first BWWM book I’ve read, which is surprising to me, but even as a “white” girl, I really got into this story. Good story. I recommend.
Marc Ross is the self-made, real-estate billionaire, who isolated himself from much of the world after his failed marriage. And despite the dissimilarities between us (yes, I’m not a billionaire), Ross ended up feeling like a regular guy, a credit to the author’s skill. Marlee Winters is smart, beautiful, and success-oriented – everything a man could want, including Marc. But perhaps most important for this story, she is rooted, finding pleasures in the small things in life that Marc go longer sees. The only question is, will what Marc initially saw as a small omission grow to the point where a relationship is impossible?
Blaque Beauty and the Billionaire makes a great afternoon or evening read. But that too is its only weakness. If you are one that likes to savor the pleasure of love found or if you believe the respite is so much sweeter after prolonged suffering…you may not have these opportunities with this novella. The plot moves at a quick pace, without any unnecessary scenes and hardly a wasted word.
This is not your typical billionaire read. Marc is very down to earth and likeable, he's almost anti-billionaire. I really enjoyed that aspect. The most enjoyable moment for me was this line:
"Let me guess." She said. "This is the part where you Alpha male me into listening to your crap excuse..."
That line is perfection and gives the reader a clear picture of the kind of woman Marlee Winters is. Perfect novella that leaves your with a satisfying ending.
Marlee was a very strong, talented, business woman who is in Colorado, helping her boss redesign a resort. Marc is the billionaire owner of the resort and their initial meeting, is the perfect amount of flirty chemistry without being over the top. The steamy scene is just that...steamy. And the way everything is resolved is perfect.
I loved this story and cannot wait to jump into the next one.
Marc is an interesting character. He's not too brooding, not really alpha. He's really just right. Marlee is strong, but fragile due to a previous relationship. I was interested to read more about Dorian and hope she shows up more later in the series. She's sassy and doesn't tolerate much from people. I really liked her.
All of the characters in the novella are likable except Eva, but she's not supposed to be. The prose is well written and engaging. If you like romance novels with well developed characters, I think you would like this one
