The New York Times bestselling author of the Billionaire Boys Club novels is back with a sexy, sweet romance that proves opposites definitely attract... Taylor is a genius when it comes to computers, but understanding the opposite sex is beyond her. Because she always fumbles her flirtations, she needs help in finding her Prince Charming. So when her friend, Gretchen, sets her up as a tour guide for a new guy in town, she says yes despite her misgivings. She just doesn’t expect Mr. Charming to actually be royalty... A faction in his country wants him to be king, but Loch has no intention of taking the crown. To keep from being named as the next successor, he hatches a scheme to marry a totally unacceptable American woman. Quirky Taylor seems like the perfect person for the job, until Loch realizes he likes more about her than her ability to keep him off the throne. When Loch’s secret schemes come out, his chance of happiness with Taylor are blown—unless he can find a way to get the nerdy object of his affection to believe she’s truly the queen of his heart... Includes a teaser for The Billionaire’s Favorite Mistake! Praise for Jessica Clare and her novels “Blazing hot.”—USA Today “[Clare is] a romance writing prodigy.”—Heroes and Heartbreakers “Fast-paced, emotional, highly compelling.”—Harlequin Junkie
Billionaire on the Loose is Jessica Clare’s latest novella in the Billionaire and Bridesmaid series. I laughed a lot in this books and the stalker vibe, which played a large role in the relationship between hero Loch and geeky heroine Gretchen, through me for a loop, at the revelations of who the needy geek was really. I love Clare’s books but this wasn’t my favorite of the series, and Loch really was a shallow person, I was amazed at how clueless about real life and others feeling he appeared. Yes, he is a royal, but the pampered rich guy really had no clue about how to live outside of his fishbowl life. Loch did grow on me, but he still was not my favorite hero, as Clare has written better book boyfriends. I tried and failed not to compare Loch to the other of Clare’s creations. I hang my head as a reviewer as I failed in the quest. Loch actually would have brought the book to three stars if he wasn’t written by Clare and had Clare’s creation of Taylor to redeem him. Taylor is geeky and fun, but also one of those girls who just can’t say know and carries the weight of the world on her shoulders. I did connect with this character. In all I do recommend this read, as how could I not it’s from Clare who writes scintillating sex and romance.
