Manwhore. That's what the board of directors-and the tabloids-thinks of billionaire bachelor Reese Crane. Ordinarily he couldn't care less, but his playboy past is preventing the board from naming him CEO of Crane Hotels. Nothing-and no one-will keep him from his life's legacy. They want a settled man to lead the company? Then that's exactly what he'll give them.

Merina Van Heusen will do anything to get her parents' funky boutique hotel back-even marry cold-as-ice-but-sexy-as-hell Reese Crane. It's a simple business contract-six months of marriage, absolute secrecy, and the Van Heusen is all hers again. But when sparks fly between them, their passion quickly moves from the boardroom to the bedroom. And soon Merina is living her worst nightmare: falling in love with her husband . . .

Forced to marry a deliciously sexy billionaire for 6 months? Where do I sign up for a gig like that?!

When boutique hotel manager Merina Van Heusen learns that her family's hotel has been sold to the Crane Hotels conglomerate, she's incensed. How dare the bastards take her legacy from her parents! She learns that not everything is black and white, especially when COO Reese Crane proposes that they marry for 6 months. He needs his board to forget his manwhoring ways and name him CEO, she wants her hotel back. Win-win, right?

Feelings were never supposed to be involved, but both find it increasingly difficult to separate real life from their contract, especially when they're not just perfect for each other in bed. But Reese has been badly burned before, and there's no way he can let Merina into his heart…is there?

I'm always skeptical of books that feel the need to advertise an MC's worth in the title (how come there's never books like "The Broke Bumkin's Baby" or "The Middle Class Middle Manager's Mistress?"), but I did enjoy THE BILLIONAIRE BACHELOR. A light summer read, there's nothing groundbreaking or earth shattering about this book. It's the story of two people forced to marry and even though they fight it, they fall in love. Naturally Reese fights the attraction with everything he's got but succumbs to his feelings for the beautiful vixen who's stolen his heart. Reese was a grumpy guy, as stingy with his smiles as his morals, but Merina helps him loosen up and live. The sex in THE BILLIONAIRE BACHELOR was nice and erotic, just how I like it! There wasn't anything kinky or out of the ordinary, but it was hot nonetheless. All in all, this book was an easy, good read perfect for the pool or beach or even just the deck.

Bottom Line: Nothing fresh or new here, but nicely written and super sexy.
