I am about to go on a gush-fest right now, as I absolutely adore this book! It has been awhile since I have been captivated by a read, and this story did it. Hunter Buchannon is a man who was such a pleasant surprise to me, I fell in hard core love with him..I truly did!
This book is the second in the series; "The Billionaire Boys Club." Even though this is the second book, I do feel it can be read as a stand alone, although Book one was extremely enjoyable as well. "Beauty and the Billionaire" has the "Beauty and the Beast" theme that a lot of us readers love. I can honestly say that it has been awhile since I have read a book with this theme that I have enjoyed so much. This story will be one of my top faves of all time when it comes to the "beast" theme. Let me tell you...Mr. Hunter Buchannon..may look like a monster because of his scars...but in no way is he one. This guy will hold you entrhralled from beginning to end. I seriously felt so much for him. He was gruff yes, but underneath that hard exterior was a man that had so many soft layers he was amazing! He is kind, thoughtful, and feels like he doesn't deserve happiness because of how he looks. He hides himself away from the world, as he has been rejected and gawked at so many times that he would just rather be alone. He does have his friends that he met in College. These are the Billionaires that he has formed a private club with. There are six of them, and they have taken a vow to be successful no matter what they have to do. They rely on each other to help themselves out, and they are all handsome and filthy rich. (well, besides Hunter..he's rich but most would say he wasn't handsome..)Unfortunately, none of them are very lucky in love...
When Hunter comes across a woman named; Gretchen Petty, he is held captivated by her. She has the bright red hair, and she is vibrant and unique. He overhears her talk about how she wishes she could find a good man, and how looks do not matter to her. Even though Hunter knows in his heart that no one would be able to over look him..he decides he needs to formulate a plan to get to know this woman who has caught his attention. Gretchen is a "ghost writer" and Hunter uses her profession to lure her in to his mansion to stay there for a month. Gretchen is tempted by the huge amount of money she is offered, even though there are a few very strange conditions about the job.
I loved Gretchen! She was just such a neat heroine..so full of life,love, and laughter! She was perfect for Hunter, and thankfully she had so much determination when it came to the recluse! Hunter was innocent and naive in so many ways (yes, sex was one of the major ones!) and she took it upon herself to want to show him how to live! As the two of them grow closer, I fell in love more and more! I can't say enough of how much I enjoyed their dance to falling in love. This will go down as one of my favorite love stories of all time. Not all readers may be as excited about this story as I was; but for me...I just can't say enough good about it!
The sex between this couple...holy smoly...it was beyond HOT! Hunter may have gotten a late start; but when he finally does the deed..this guy is a demon in bed! Phew!!! I love his enthusiasum and his intensity! There is quite a bit of sex in this installment; but I wasn't complaining!! IT was all around great sex, and very well written. No trashiness in the least. It was erotic,passionate, and I loved every word...At one point I was reading a scene (them against a wall!) in the grocery store, and I had to stop as I was sure my face was beat red, and everyone would know that I was reading a dirty scene! LMAO That is a true story people!!!
Jessica Clare is fast becoming a top fave author of mine! I am in love with this series. If I have one book recommendation of the year so far...it would be this one! If "Beauty and the Beast" is something that you have always enjoyed..then please...give this one a chance. You will fall in love with Hunter...truly you will! He is such a pleasant surprise! I was sad to have the story end!
