I equally liked MIT genius graduate, Sebastian (Ian) Cooper. He's a self-made multi-millionaire and helper of friends. Ian is sexy and handsome and humble. He's the epitome of tall, dark and handsome. He's the powerful, strong silent type with intense blue eyes. Basically, he's a hawt hunk.
This was such a cute, fast paced story of two people with strong attractions to each other...dancing around one another while they restore and renovate an old home. Strong character descriptions. Some PG-13 sexual intimate moments, but quickly conveyed and not told in explicit detail. Very little adult language. This story leaves you with a HEA and a smile.
We get to meet a kind of happy go lucky, curvy woman named Billie and her way to the perfect guy. i was afraif afraidit would be another guy-friend turned lover book but there is just enough added to it to make you want to keep reading it.
If I were to add something i felt was nit as good, it would be the reason som a break-up... Could have been more creative without messing the whole story up. BUT that to me really is just a small detail.
PS: for those Who have read the other Oakland hills books, Trixie has a small part in this book too. As do Hugo and the ugdorable Zeus
In Going For Broke, Billie realizes that there just might be a spark between her and her older sister's ex, Ian. As uncomfortable as that may seem, the friends to lovers story works well with some really funny situations and dialogue.
I personally loved this story as we just inherited a house "full of cat filth and People magazines from the 1980s." Gretchen captures the atmosphere, mood and relationships perfectly.
Ian is a good hero. He never really wavers once he decides he wants Billie. He may not think long term and consider the consequences of his actions, but he does stop and consider things when this is pointed out to him.
I also like Billie. She is a little bit too non-confrontational and doesn't stand up for herself enough, but she's not exactly a doormat. And this character flaw becomes less as the book goes on.
I'll be looking for this in audio!

It was sexy, romantic and a lovely easy read
But the “hero” is so controlling once he decides he’s in love, that his behaviour reads more like a stalker than a lover. In the end I was so uncomfortable I couldn’t finish the book.
In some romance novels there’s seems to be a confusion that the so-called Alpha male should have no respect for boundaries or consent.
Unexpected end for me.
