I’ll stop at nothing to get what I want. It’s the Dyson way.
Ruthless? Maybe. But it’s what’s put me on top. And it’s what’s going to help me get revenge on the woman who put my family through hell.
I’m going to ruin Sienna Roberts.
My plan has been in play for months. She has no idea I’m the mysterious benefactor commissioning her artwork, or that the downfall in store for her will be the end of her career.
But there’s something I didn’t plan for—the way her smile and touch starts to make me forget all I blame her for…
My first response was…I think the title is all wrong. The billionaire isn't stubborn, the artist is more stubborn than he is. But really, the title is all wrong. Give me some time to work on it and I'll come up with a better one. Review to follow...
Well, I haven’t come up with a great title for this book, but this one still doesn’t sit well with me. However, I do like the book quite a lot.
The characters were very well done. They had a depth to them and stayed true to themselves throughout the book. No weird stuff that didn’t fit.
I liked Sienna’s 15-year old half brother, Zachary, who's living with her because he's been expelled from school. He's funny and snarky. He has a much better idea of what’s going on than either of the other two, Sienna or James. Of course, he has the seat on the sidelines that allows him to see it all. And he’s totally amused by most of the proceedings.
Sienna and James shoot sparks off each other just saying hello. Their connection is hot whether they're kissing or arguing. I love this quote. It's not nice, but I love it anyway!
"So, Sienna, I'm independently wealthy, Dad can't touch my money, and I like what I've tasted so far. Am I good enough to sleep with?
He's plotting to ruin her, and he almost succeeds. Then he realizes he's in love with her and calls it all off. But not, of course, before she finds out what he's been up to. She's hurt and angry and sends him away. Then he bares his soul in a very public way and it's beautiful. Billionaires do that so well.
If you’re a fan of millionaire/billionaire love stories, I recommend this one. It’s due out on January 23, 2017. That’s next Monday. So, plan on picking it up and giving it a go.
