Publisher's Summary

Maya Banks has watched her spicy romance tales hit both the USA Today and New York Times best seller lists.

It doesn't take long for billionaire businessman Evan Reese to realize his attraction to ad executive Celia Taylor. For six months he's wooed her, and now she's agreed to accompany him to beautiful Catalina for a family wedding. There he plans to seduce her with his charms, but he can't be certain how she's going to take the news that she'll be there on his arm playing the role of his fake fiancée.

Communication is Key!

Why can't guys communicate their intentions? I am sure if he had been up front things would have gone a lot smoother. But I do get the vulnerability angle. The story was totally enjoyable. Maya Banks did a great job. I was surprised to find a male narrating this type of book, but he did a credible job.

Easy Listening Romance

Nothing too thought provoking, just a nice little get away for a few hours. Sweet little romance. Not excessively steamy, but fun. Narrator has sexy voice and doesn't make the female characters sound like idiots. (lol) Likeable characters. JB

Poor plot - very badly narrated

What disappointed you about Billionaire's Contract Engagement?

Plot is predictable and is only made worse by the smirky tone of the reader. He is either smirking because he is getting paid to read this rubbish or he is hamming it up.

What could Maya Banks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Kept it to herself - put some interesting occurences in the story line.

Would you be willing to try another one of Harry Berkeley’s performances?

NO!

What character would you cut from Billionaire's Contract Engagement?

Female and male leads
