He can buy anything he wants…except the thing he needs the most.
The Billionaire Bargains, Book 2
Things come easy to Tony Steele. Money. Women. A good time. It’s all a piece of cake. Until that cake turns into the wedding cake of Tony’s best friend and the woman of Tony’s dreams, Reese Chaplin.
Tony can’t fix this problem by writing a check. And when Tony finds out his “friend” has been cheating on the woman who’s stolen his heart, he doesn’t hesitate to steal her away. Even if it’s her wedding day.
Nothing about Reese’s big day goes according to plan. She walks down the aisle to marry one man, and winds up in a Vegas wedding chapel with another. After a hot night with Tony, the only thing Reese regrets is that her new husband doesn’t remember anything about it.
Reese suspects the marriage is going to end badly, especially when Tony offers her a million dollars a month to stay married—who does that? But walking away from him turns out to be harder than she’d thought. Especially as she starts to know the man behind the wallet.
Warning: Contains a billionaire playboy who can’t handle his tequila, a Vegas wedding, hot phone sex (and other kinds of hot sex), and a woman who knows how to make a point—even if it requires jumping out of an airplane.
I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for this book to come out! I am happy to say that I wasn’t disappointed. Of course, when have I ever been disappointed with an Erin Nicholas book??
We met Tony previously in No Matter What, as Adam Steele’s brother. Both billionaires. Tony and Adam are used to throwing their money around to get the things that they want. But what Tony wants the most can’t be obtained with money. The object of his desire is his best friend’s fiance, Reese. I really liked that we could tell that Tony was a true gentleman and didn’t try to make any moves on Reese after his friend decided to pursue her. But then that friend confesses the night before the wedding that he’s in love with another woman! Tony can’t stand by and see Reese marry someone who was not head-over-heels in love with her, so he has his friend break off the engagement.
Fast forward to what is supposed to be the first day of Reese’s honeymoon. Both her and Tony wake up to find they are married to each other! It’s not an easy go from here. Both are quite stubborn and set in their ways; Reese doesn’t like how Tony throws money at everything and Tony wants Reese to live a little. We get a fun, wild ride in Vegas while these two try to figure out if they want to continue with their marriage or if they are better off getting an annulment. I loved the play of emotions in the story. When you think billionaires, most people think money hungry, arrogant, jerk-offs that don’t care about other people. Tony may be arrogant about some things, but he has such a big heart I couldn’t help but instantly fall in love with him. And I found that I could easily relate to Reese. She wasn’t one to be walked all over and she had a good sense of morals. And she could put Tony in his place which was awesome.
I CANNOT WAIT to read the third in this series. I wish it could go on and on. Or be real and I somehow am single and find myself thrown into their world. Either way, I’d be happy! Erin, you have done it again with another amazingly, awesome story!
