Billionaire erotic romance is very popular at the moment. It can be very enjoyable to escape into this fantasy world for a while, pretend to be a pretty, young thing with a hot, wealthy man interested in you. When it all comes together, it’s a lot of fun.
As much as I wanted it to, this story didn’t do that for me.
Samantha “Sammi” Barnes, the heroine, is likable. She’s beautiful, but doesn’t know it, smart, and independent. She’s also an abuse survivor and leery of men, good-looking men in particular. After reading her experience with her ex, Nathan, it’s completely understandable. The only way for her to escape him was to change her identity. So, there’s no surprise when she’s afraid of her reaction to Levi Webber, the hot billionaire who wants to date her.
Levi is used to getting what he wants and I can’t like him. This may be in part because I don’t know much about him other than he was engaged to a woman, but it wasn’t a real engagement (just to keep his mom and sisters off his back) and he broke it off with her, he’s wealthy, he’s obsessed with Samantha, and he’s, for all intents and purposes, a stalker. Literally, he stalks her. He has his assistant find out everything he can about her after he gets her name. Then, when he’s seen her a few times and he still can’t get more personal information out of her and she won’t go out on a date with him, he asks one of her friends to go on date with him so he can get her drunk and pump her for information.
Maybe it’s my age, but I find that scary. There’s a lack of ethics there that makes me wonder what else he’s capable of. It’s not him lying about his real identity like in some of these billionaire love stories. He doesn’t. It’s more his attitude of “I want her, I’m going to get her whether she wants to be with me or not, and do it anyway I can” that doesn’t sit well with me.
Eventually, she agrees to go out on a date with Levi, but only after he followed her to her office, broke into her home, and said that he would only leave her alone if she agreed to do so and didn’t want a second one.
I haven’t dated any billionaires that I know of. However, if they are like this, I’m glad I didn’t. None of this seems very romantic to me.
There are some other things that bother me. While Sammi’s friend Toni cares for her, she’s also a bit of a bully. Sammi admits her friend is a bit of a bully, but she feels like there are so many other redeeming qualities about Toni she’s okay with it. The only reason Sammi meets Levi is because Toni pressured her into going to a new club that was opening. When I say “pressured,” I mean she wouldn’t leave her alone until Sammi did what she wanted. Despite being privy to Sammi’s past, Toni thinks four years is long enough and it’s time for her friend to move on. Sammi disagrees. Rather than allow her to make her own decision, Toni pushes what she thinks is best for her friend on her. I realize she wants her friend to be happy, but on whose terms?
It seems that Sammi goes from one abusive relationship to another.
Perhaps Ms. Delmornay means for this to be the case. Perhaps in the following books, we see Sammi grow into the woman who’s hidden inside of her (whoever that may be). I honestly don’t know and probably won’t ever know because, with everything leading up to the massive cliffhanger at the end, I was done. Had I been inclined to read on, the cliffhanger put the nail in the coffin. (A cliffhanger at the end of a chapter? Okay. A cliffhanger at the end of a book even if it’s part of a series? No.)
None of this speaks of romance to me.
I have to say, though, that Ms. Delmornay did manage to rouse some pretty intense emotions in me. For that, I give her kudos.
This is the first book in a series of four and there is much more to the story than this first part, so I would recommend reading all four if you want the full story. This was very engaging but only wets the appetite for more.
Her friends take her to a club owned by wealthy Levi Webber. When Sammi catches the rich playboy's attention, she doesn't realize how deep he will dig to learn more about her.
Even worse, what he will find.
This book captured my attention with the intent of the interactions between Levi and Sammi. His relentless, Type-A personality fits the character. Her aloof mystique provides a strong antithesis,
My only gripe is that while I knew this was Book 1 of a series, it ended very abruptly. I expected a To Be Continued, or teaser for Book 2. At first, I wondered if it was the end, or of my file was corrupted.
I want Book 2 now.
This was a good piece of bad-boy alpha rich guy wish fulfillment, though if a guy had been that much of a stalker in real life I'd not be amused. I also liked that the guy did indeed develop actual feelings and seeing the heroine as a person eventually and that his character was always clearly repulsed by anything actually abusive. The side mystery in the story was intriguing too, but just as we were getting to the point of solving it and just as the kinky stuff in the promised in the blurb came close to being delivered, the story ended on a cliffhanger. I don't care for those, but it does leave the reader craving more.
