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…

I’m a sucker for Jessica Clare’s billionaire books! I’d been excited for Billionaire on the Loose since reading The Billionaire’s Favorite Mistake and being introduced to Taylor and Loch. A romance between a computer genius/online gamer nerd and one of the heirs to the crown of Bellissime – how could I say no to that!?

Normally women fell into his lap. The one time he was the one pursuing? He couldn’t get her to leave her damned apartment.

Becoming king of Bellissime sounds like a nightmare to Loch, so to stay out of the media and prevent gaining any popularity, he hides away in New York. He plans on meeting up with his cousin, but the last person he expects to keep him company is a clumsy, gorgeous girl he can’t keep out of his mind. The chemistry between them blows his mind, and he knows he wants more of her – and she’d be the perfect American candidate for becoming his wife and thus losing his spot as heir to the throne. He has a hard time getting Taylor to give him the time of day though – but what happens when feelings start to develop and the truth of his intentions come out?

The heroine is definitely the highlight of this novel for me – Loch was slightly forgettable, but that was forgivable when I focused more on Taylor. I love when characters challenge gender norms, and Taylor is the perfect example of that. She’s a female gamer and who is totally unapologetic about who she is and what she does – I LOVED that about her. She’s also slightly awkward and clumsy, especially around men, but that only endeared her to me. Taylor and Loch are total opposites – he’s a smooth, handsome player while she has no social skills – so if you love the opposites-attract trope, this book is for you!

A hot one night stand between friends might spark true love in the latest Billionaires and Bridesmaids novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Billionaire Takes a Bride.

Greer has always been there for Asher, but she wishes she could break through her shyness and show how much she truly loves him. But after a steamy, mindless fling at Hunter and Gretchen’s engagement party, Greer finds herself tossed aside and forced to admit that you can’t love someone who doesn’t acknowledge you exist.

It’s a shame he got her pregnant.

After his fiancée betrayed him and tanked his business in one fell swoop, Asher has spent his time trying to rebuild his wealth and forget the past. But he doesn’t understand why Greer blew him off after their night together—until he catches a glimpse of her belly.

Now Asher is willing to do whatever it takes to convince Greer she belongs with him. And he’s very skilled at the art of persuasion.

I love groveling books, guys. Love love looove them. Give me a redeemable guy who effs up and dedicates everything to fixing what he did wrong, and I’m so there. Jessica Clare writes some fantastic grovel, and The Billionaire’s Favorite Mistake gave me exactly what I was looking for and hoping for. It’s the perfect kind of angsty yet humorous read that make my heart race and flutter. This billionaire hero messes up big time, but his devotion to his woman is beyond words, and he’s ready to make up for what he did. If you’re a fan of the series, or love devoted heroes, this book is for you!

Asher and Greer’s book is the fourth standalone in the Billionaires and Bridesmaids series, though I do recommend reading the series in order. The timelines overlap, and there’s a great build-up of tension for future couples. I’d been dying to read this couple’s story ever since the first Billionaires and Bridesmaids book, and I wasn’t disappointed. Honestly, I never am with Jessica Clare! Her billionaire reads are the perfect indulgence for me, and I’m so happy that she’s got so many stories to tell.

Greer has been in love with her old friend Asher for years, but she’s never told him her feelings – until now. Except when Greer does confess, Asher is drunk off his ass, and when they have sex… well, it’s not the most fun experience Greer’s ever had. In fact, it’s one of the worst experiences she’s ever had, and she couldn’t be more disappointed with Asher’s performance, really. Unfortunately, the hits don’t stop there. Asher’s one-pump-chump ended up in a pregnancy – and now Greer is so over him, she never knew what she ever saw in him.

She was just a naive idiot. Show Asher her love? She should show him a boot to the ass.
He was a selfish asshole. Why had she wasted so many years pining after him?

Asher is such a jerk, but it’s hilariously played, so I didn’t get too annoyed at him. It also helped that the moment he realized he messed up and that the best thing that ever happened to him was right under his nose all along, he was determined to win back Greer’s love. Oh, Asher totally stole my heart with his fierce dedication and relentless pursuit for Greer’s love. It’s the only thing that matter to him, her and their baby, and he’s going to do whatever it takes to make amends and win her heart.

There was no turning back for him now. Any thought of giving up on Greer and moving on with his life? Utterly vanished. She was his. This sweet, giving mouth? His. This timid, eager tongue? His. The passionate woman in his arms? All his. With every coaxing flick of his tongue, he was letting her know that she belonged to him.

Of course, it’s not a Jessica Clare book without some humor! I was dying of giggles at how many times Greer just shoots Asher down, but my heart also ached at how he never gives up. I adored these two! They’re absolutely meant to be, and I couldn’t be happier with how things worked out between them. The author did a wonderful job at balancing the romance, angst, and humor in this novel. It’s one of my new favorite reads from Jessica Clare – I still love Hunter and Gretchen the most, but Greer and Asher are a close second in my heart!

“All I want is you.”
Greer looked up in surprise, her face soft.
“It’s true,” he told her. “You may not believe me yet, but that’s fine. I’m good with waiting.” You’re it for me and I don’t care how long it takes.

A lie turns to love in the latest novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Taming of the Billionaire.

Billionaire Sebastian Cabral loves his family, he just doesn’t love their reality TV show, The Cabral Empire. So when his ex-girlfriend tries to rekindle their relationship on camera, Sebastian decides that drastic measures are in order.

By day, Chelsea Hall is a happy-go-lucky, rough and tumble roller derby skater. By night, she’s still living in fear of her past. Most of all, she just doesn’t want to be alone. And she really, really doesn’t want to date.

So when their mutual friends’ upcoming wedding turns Chelsea and Sebastian into fast friends, they realize they can solve both of their problems with one life-changing lie: a quick trip down the aisle.

But with one kiss, Chelsea and Sebastian suddenly realize that their pretend relationship is more real than either of them expected….

Jessica Clare’s billionaire reads are with a doubt always auto-buy books for me, because she just never disappoints! She has such a talent for writing entertaining books – she takes these tropes and spins them in a unique, fun, and sexy way… I love them! The Billionaire Takes a Bride is Jessica Clare’s newest billionaire release, and is an utterly enjoyable, hilarious, heartwarming read. It’s a little different than her previous billionaire books, but it’s a book that surprised me in the best way. I think fans of the author will wholeheartedly enjoy it – I know I did.

The next couple in Gretchen (GOD I LOVE GRETCHEN) and Hunter’s wedding party to fall in love are Sebastian and Chelsea, two people from totally different worlds who find a connection with one another and become fast friends. Sebastian has a family that is completely over-the-top. The Cabral Empire is a reality TV show about his family, which he wants nothing to do with. Add in an ex-girlfriend who wants screen-time by trying to get back with Sebastian, and he’s had it with all the fake people in his life. Chelsea is a roller derby skater – how cool is that!? When she puts on her derby skates and uniform, she’s this kickass, fierce woman, but when she’s out of them, she’s very much still living in her past, terrified. With Sebastian though, her fears aren’t as strong – and the two of them concoct a plan to marry one another so they don’t have to deal with their problems. The marriage is supposed to be temporary, but what happens when real feelings for each other start to come up?

Chelsea Hall was now his to protect. He wouldn’t fail her. It was clear that someone had failed her in the past.
Never again.

I adored Chelsea and Sebastian. Chelsea is unlike any other heroine of Jessica Clare’s – she’s split between her strong, derby self and her more fragile, vulnerable self, but with Sebastian, she realizes she can be both. She’s a wonderful heroine who had me both laughing at her wittiness and hurting for her past. Sebastian is really just perfect for Chelsea. He’s patient, considerate, funny, and not to mention, gorgeous… I loved him so much. The way he grows to care so much for Chelsea had my heart swooning, and I just loved how determined he is to show her that their marriage doesn’t have to be temporary at all.

“You are my family, Chelsea. Don’t you get that? I love you with all of my heart and soul. If you’re not in my life, I have nothing. I don’t care if you’re the woman you think I need, but you’re the woman I want. I love you and adore you, and every minute without you is worthless.”

What I absolutely appreciated was how Jessica Clare was adamant in her story that Sebastian is not the cure to Chelsea’s problem. She’s the kind of heroine who finds the strength within herself to not let the past drown her, and for that I admire her so much. The love and support from Sebastian, though, definitely helped a long way.

Overall, The Billionaire Takes a Bride was a joy to read. A little slow sometimes, but a great read nonetheless. Jessica Clare always writes the best stories, with incredible characters, humor, and heart. If you plan on reading this book (which you should), I’d say to have a little patience, because I promise Jessica Clare will deliver.

Blog Tour + Author Interview & Giveaway: The Taming of the Billionaire by Jessica Clare

The Taming of the Billionaire Tour Banner

Welcome to today’s stop on the blog tour for The Taming of the Billionaire by Jessica Clare! We have Jessica here today for an author interview!

Author Interview: Jessica Clare

Hi Jessica! I’m so happy to have you on the blog – I’m such a huge fan!

Thank you! Happy to be here! ☺

The Taming of the Billionaire is the second book in your new Billionaires and Bridesmaids series. Tell us a little about it!

Since Billionaires and Bridesmaids is a look at our heroes and heroines from the first books getting married and their friends, we’re moving on to Gretchen and Hunter’s impending wedding. Edie is one of Gretchen’s college friends and a cranky cat lady. Magnus is a business associate and groomsman to Hunter, and the two hate each other at first sight. Which of course, turns into lust (because this is romance!).

What was the inspiration for The Taming of the Billionaire?

Netflix! Specifically, the show ‘My Cat From Hell’. I thought Jackson Galaxy’s job as a ‘cat behaviorist’ was interesting, and I tried to imagine a heroine with a similar type job. Of course, because so many things are gendered, a guy with a cat job is ‘quirky’ while a woman with a cat job is a ‘cat lady’. So I inspired to make her the crankiest, most non-shit-taking cat lady there is. As for the hero, Magnus, I’m addicted to a few games on my phone (Puzzles and Dragons!!) and saw that Minecraft had been sold for a billion to Microsoft and the concept for that hero sort of spun into my “I’d like to do a Taming of the Shrew” concept that I was working around. Which probably sounds like a hot mess but trust me! It works!

What was your favorite part about writing The Taming of the Billionaire?

Edie! She was so unapologetically a pain in the ass that I loved writing her.

How do you like working on a new series now that the Billionaire Boys Club series (which I love!) is finished?

Well, I do miss my boys! Which is why they’re not so far away from this group. They’re going to be dropping in quite a bit on these characters. ☺

In what ways is the new series different from the Billionaire Boys Club series?

We’re going to see a lot of new characters from different walks of life stepping in, and there’s a very big wedding focus. Book 1 was Bronte and Logan’s resort wedding. Books 2-5 will be hitting Gretchen and Hunter’s wedding party, because you know things just won’t go smoothly! After that, I’m going to swing back around to either Audrey or Maylee’s nuptials!

What’s the best part about writing about billionaires?

The playground – there’s no limit to the ‘big’ gestures the hero can make when money is no object. That’s fun. ☺

Can you tell us about your different pen names and how it all works out?

Jessica Sims is shifter romances, Jessica Clare is erotic contemporary, and Jill Myles is a little bit of everything but the kitchen sink! The names were all because of publishing reasons. I started as Jill Myles and then my numbers weren’t so hot, so they ‘recreated’ me as Jessica Sims. Then when I went to Berkley, we started a new pen name to differentiate things, so Jessica Clare was born.

What was your favorite book to write and why?

It’s usually the last one I just wrote because it’s DONE. But I have to admit I have a special soft spot in my heart for Reese & Audrey’s book, and Cade & Kylie’s.

What kind of heroine/hero do you love to read about?

Bickery ones! I think because I love the snappy banter.

What are you currently working on? Is there exciting news you can share?

We’re in talks for more books but I don’t have news yet! Maybe I will by the time this posts!

Thank you so much for the interview, Jessica!

The New York Times bestselling author of The Billionaire and the Virgin returns with a tale of Shakespearean-style seduction…

Edie’s an overbearing cat behaviorist who’s not big on people. Magnus is a newly-rich game developer who likes to be in control. When the two of them meet at Gretchen and Hunter’s masquerade engagement party, the loathing is mutual. Unfortunately for them—and everyone else—they’re in the wedding party together and must deal with each other for the next few months.

But when Magnus’s younger brother falls for Edie’s sister, he begs for his brother’s help in concocting a plan to win her over. If Magnus can keep the prickly Edie occupied, his brother will have time to woo Edie’s sister. Of course, Magnus isn’t interested in the slightest, but Edie is…intriguing. And stubborn. And smart. And sexy. And they might have more in common than they thought.

Before long, it becomes a challenge between the two of them to see who will be tamed first. But how’s Edie going to react when she finds out that Magnus is using her? And how’s Magnus going to handle the fact that he’s fallen for a cat lady?

Unfortunately for them—and everyone else—they’re in the wedding party together and must deal with each other for the next few months.

Before long, it becomes a challenge between the two of them to see who will be tamed first. But how’s Edie going to react when she finds out that Magnus is using her? And how’s Magnus going to handle the fact that he’s fallen for a cat lady?

Jessica Clare’s Billionaire books are a total guilty pleasure of mine – I inhale them like candy because they’re just so good. They’re easy to enjoy and well-written with hilarious, endearing characters. The Taming of the Billionaire, the second book in the Billionaire and Bridesmaids series, is another win from Jessica Clare – I adored this warm-hearted, enchanting story of the cat lady and the billionaire!

“I thought I was going to tame the cat lady, and it seems that she’s tamed me.”

Edie is a cat behaviorist, otherwise known as a cat lady. She’s not the most friendly person, but hand her a cat and she’s the sweetest person you know. She has a leg injury that causes a limp, and she’s dependent on her sister Bianca, who’s pretty but manipulative. Edie a bridesmaid at her friend Gretchen’s wedding, and at the engagement party she meets Magnus, one of the groomsman – and they dislike each other at first sight. She thinks he’s a dick and he thinks she’s a bitch, which makes for some hilarious banter between them.

Magnus is a billionaire who got rich by developing video games and his latest project requires the help of his brother Levi. But Levi won’t work unless he can be with Edie’s gorgeous sister Bianca, so they make a deal: Magnus will spend time with Edie to distract her from Bianca so Levi can have Bianca to himself, and Levi will work on their gamer project. While Magnus expects to hate his time with Edie, he’s surprised by the sassy yet warm-hearted woman underneath her cat lady exterior. Before long, Magnus wants to spend time with Edie – and he wants her pretty bad, too.

Jessica Clare writes some fantastic chemistry between Magnus and Edie – they’re such unique characters and make an unexpected couple, but I loved them together. Not only is the sex between them HOT, the two are also hilarious together! I was giggling my way through this book with the banter and with how ridiculous they were. Edie and Magnus make the cutest couple ever and I adored them!

“I’m going to lick your pussy so hard you’re not going to be able to walk straight.”
“That’s not much of a threat for a girl like me, Magnus,” she teased. Her hand moved down the front of his chest, then landed at his waist.
“Then I’ll lick your pussy so hard that I won’t be able to walk straight,” he told her.

The Taming of the Billionaire is a hilariously fun, light-hearted read with just the right amount of angst to keep my heart invested. I looooved seeing Magnus fall so hard for his cat lady – he definitely makes a huge 180 in regards to his feelings towards Edie AND he becomes a total cat person himself. Edie was a great heroine too – she’s funny, relatable, and I connected with her from the start. I also loved seeing the characters from the Billionaire Boys Club series (I still have the BIGGEST girl crush on Gretchen)! This book is definitely a must-read for fans of the author – it’s a fun-filled, delightful read and I highly recommend it!
