She's a 29 year old, petite, fifth grade teacher with short black hair and warm brown eyes. Violet DeWitt is a lovely young woman, alone and lonely and full of resentment and grudges. She's smart and gorgeous...and whenever she gets upset, her natural reaction is to build up her internal armor of protection...she automatically locks up her emotions and goes cold. Stone cold. It's her natural defense. She's hated Jonathan Lyons since she was nineteen years old; pregnant and abandoned....and the stress of her ordeal caused her to miscarry. She's an extremely bitter woman full of hate for Mr. Lyons.
He has dark hair and deep blue eyes and Jonathan Lyons has never stopped loving Violet DeWitt even though it's been ten years since their break-up. His love for her has only increased. Even though he's a billionaire conglomerate and founder of an auto industry, Jonathan's real interest is archaeology. He's passionate about his work and travels often. He's world weary, intense and determined in all things. He's fun to be around...usually. He's never had a relationship with another woman....his heart has always belonged only to Violet.
I love that Ms. Clare always portrays the female characters of her books as "real women" with real jobs or careers. I love that she portrays them as flawed...well, "flawed" in the sense of romance novels. They all come from common walks of life...(waitresses, personal assistants, school teachers, anonymous writers, country bumpkins). I love that Ms. Clare gives us "real women" and not svelte, tanned, thin models etc. and I applaud her original imagination and anxiously continue with this series.
The minor downside to this story is the title... "ROMANCING THE BILLIONAIRE" didn't make sense. Violet DeWitt doesn't romance Jonathan. Quite the opposite actually. Yes, she does flirt with him a bit...but no serious romancing..so, no...the title doesn't fit the story. Also at the beginning of the book we're told that Ms. DeWitt is a teacher of the 5th grade...and later in the book she's teaching in "Middle School". Other than those minor discrepancies...excellently executed story.
One fun filled summer working an archeology dig with Violets father, has very different outcomes for Jonathan and Violet. She falls in love, and wants white picket fences and family with Jonathan, while Jonathan has a great summer working with his mentor, and looks forward to spending more time with Violet, he is nowhere ready at nineteen to settle down.
Ten years later, Violet's father has died, and once again she and Jonathan are thrown together to solve a series of clues to the artifact that was stolen from Jonathan. The only way for Jonathan to recover his artifact, is if Violet can put aside her hatred of him and agree to help solve the clues together.
Some hurts are harder to get over than others, and even harder when both parties don't have all the information.
I'm looking forward to the next book in this series, Cade's story. And we get a sneak peek at her next series, Billionaires and Bridesmaids. It looks really cute.
Despite those issues, I REALLY REALLY enjoyed this book. Poetry aside, the sex scenes are HOT. The conflict and emotions that drive Violet’s reactions and decisions are completely understandable. Her angst and trust issues are firmly rooted in her life experiences and don't seem blown out of proportion. Jonathan is an intense, devoted, and sexy hero. Though he stumbles along the way, none of his actions are irredeemable and it is never in doubt that he loves Violet.
Reese is still my favorite from the Billionaire Boys Club, but Jonathan is now a very close second. Fans of the first four books should enjoy seeing Jonathan reunited with his one and only.
