Review & Giveaway: The Taming of the Billionaire by Jessica Clare

The Taming of the Billionaire
(Billionaires and Bridesmaids #2)
By Jessica Clare


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?

“If I didn’t like you, would I do this?”

And he leaned forward, put his hands on the sides of her face, and pressed his mouth to those full, red lips.

She stiffened underneath him, clearly surprised. Hell, that made two of them. Magnus hadn’t expected to kiss her. But when she’d pursed that pretty mouth in a sarcastic expression, he felt determined to prove her wrong. To show her that yes, he could like someone like her, and here was what he had to offer.

So he kissed her.

It was a quick kiss, his mouth simply pressing against hers for a moment, and Edie too startled to part her lips under his. Out of habit, his tongue grazed the seam of her mouth before he pulled away, and then they were both left blinking and staring at each other.

“You kissed me,” she said softly, and she sounded shocked.

“I know. I . . . kind of want to do it again.”

“Okay.” She blinked up at him.

Good enough. He pulled her close again and this time, when he pressed his mouth to hers, those lush lips parted for his tongue. He wanted to groan when he felt her tongue brush along his, a hot snake of desire ripping through him. Then her mouth opened wider for him and they were locked together, tongues melding as the kiss grew deeper and more passionate, and she was clinging to his shirt and he was holding her and slanting his mouth against hers over and over again, licking her like he would if he was between her legs and she had her thighs on his shoulders and—

Magnus pulled away again, and Edie gazed up at him, completely dazed. “Go out on a date with me,” he pressed again. He released her.

She wobbled and took a step backward to regain her balance. He almost reached out to catch her—almost—but he stopped himself. Edie hated being treated like she needed help. So he watched while she straightened her jacket and smoothed her hair, noticing her lipstick was smeared on that pretty, pretty mouth. He wanted to reach out and fix it with his fingers, but he was afraid if he touched her again, he’d grab her by the hips and fling her down on his bed.

Date. That was what they needed. Just a date.

“Date?” he asked again when she remained silent.

Her fingers fluttered to her mouth. “I . . . I’ll think about it.”

Magnus grinned, because that wasn’t a no. In his book, that was as good as a yes. “You do that.”

My thoughts....

I was happy to be able to read The Taming of the Billionaire by Jessica Clare, she's been on my list of authors to check out but you know how it goes. Something always happens...not this time. When I saw the tour come up I knew there was not putting it off any longer. 

I can't tell you how glad I am. 

I really loved the story line for this book. The characters sounded so cute that I couldn't wait to try it. How could you not like what Edie does for a living? The second I heard she was a cat behaviorist I thought of Jackson Galaxy from Animal Plant! I love that show  

And lets be honest, animals have a way of putting some fun into any situation. Or at least it does for the reader. 

I did find Edie somewhat off-putting at times. But got over it after a while. Now don't think that Magnus (don't you just love his name) didn't have a few things about him that made you bang your head, he did, and like with Edie I got over them. 

I think the reason I could was because as I read the book I really found that I liked them and their story. There are times that I worried that they would never click, but I shouldn't have worried. 

It's a fun story that will have you laughing more then once. Cat lovers will love this story. I will defiantly make sure to read more of this series. 

I'd love to hear your thoughts about the book. Do you like books with animals in it? Happy reading! 

Giveaway Time!
