Publisher's Summary

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author J. S. Scott.

Dante Sinclair never cared about his family’s money. All the young billionaire ever wanted was to be a cop; and now that he’s a homicide detective in Los Angeles, he’s a damn good one. But when he is injured and loses his partner in the line of duty, he returns to his vacation home in Amesport, Maine, to recover.

Sarah Baxter, a brilliant young doctor still struggling with her stifled upbringing, has recently moved from Chicago to sleepy Amesport to escape her past, hoping to find peace. When Sarah is assigned to Dante’s case, there’s an instant heat between them. They couldn’t possibly be more different, yet their igniting passion is impossible to ignore. As new feelings awaken within Sarah, her haunted past returns, threatening her once again. But can Dante overcome his grief and discover the secrets Sarah is hiding in time to protect and rescue her?

Very Predictable

This is the first novel by J.S. Scott that I've listened to and it was ok but very predictable. .The story centered on an injured police detective returning to his home town to recover physically from his wounds and mentally from the loss of his long time partner and friend. What he finds as he recovers is the love of his life.Even if he wasn't looking, Sarah, love at first sight, shows up as his new Dr.
At this point the book took a turn as his possessive nature kicked in, he had a constant erection and followed her around to the point of being a stalker. It helped to be a billionaire in this situation as his home built by his other billionaire brothers and situated in prime real estate on the shores of Maine helped to lure in the Sarah. Sarah doesn't come without issues of her own and Dante is hot on the trail of her real to life stalker. The book has its funny moments in the form of snoopy elderly ladies who are into sixth sense and snooping for real news or gossip, whichever comes first.
The love scenes are somewhat crude in description and the listener needs to make exceptions to the street vernacular used, some that takes more away than add to the story and seem to be incongruous to the fact that both adults and are well educated intelligent people. I love some good sex scenes but there were so many in this book it became boring.
I can't help but compare this series to The Sullivan series by Bella Andre. Each book follows the stories of a wealthy family and their trials and tribulations on finding their life partners. This is what made the book so predictable it was like the author followed a written scrip for this type of book.

Elizabeth Powers was very good with the delivery of the story

80% Sex, 20% plot

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The potential for a good plot was there for this book, but character development and storyline were so underdeveloped that it was just annoying.

A book with potential

The story line was promising and interesting, but it was rushed and got lost in the sex scenes which didn't seem to fit the characters. The narrator did a good job, but the story struggled.

IT'S NO ORDINARY BILLIONAIRE'S STORY EITHER

With only a few references to being one of the Sinclair Billionaire's and donating some money this is really about Dante a physically and mentally messed up Cop with Survivor's Guilt. He's been injured during a shoot out, goes back to Amesport Maine to recovery and meets Sarah his Doctor who snaps him out of his death wish depression with a few harsh words and an accidental spilling of her blood. Rather than being upset with her he's grateful and sorry so he goes to see her with a peace offering to thank her and that's when the sparks begin to fly between them.

A nice slow building sexy romance with an multi faceted Alpha male who is kind, thoughtful, caring, possessive, dominant, bossy and protective so when he finds out that his beautiful, caring, tender Sarah had been viciously attacked before and now her attacker is back threatening her life he goes into 'Cop mode' to save her life. There's suspense, a twist, a spanking in a Sub/Dom sex scene and more heated sex, a tension filled hostage scene, other Sinclair Billionaires, friends and secondary characters and a nicely built romance that leads to last minute declarations.

Told from dual POV's, a great narrator who could do good Alpha male voices and portrayed all the emotions well. This is the second Sinclair brother to find love as The Billionaire's Christmas is book 0.5 in the series and tells the story of Grady Sinclair and Emily who are mentioned a few times in this listen. It's not necessary to listen to it before this one but I wished I had to give me the full background.

Worth a credit? Yes it would have been but, at $7.34, my under $10 rule applied saving a credit for a more expensive but maybe not as enjoyable a listen.... and it's even cheaper at the moment being on sale at $5.24 so snap it up now. And I'm about to snap up book 0.5 for the same price but unfortunately with much less hours.

Terrible book.

If you're sexually deprived, get this book because that's all it is about. Stupid stupid stupid book. I hated it. I gave a better performance rating because I felt so sorry for the poor woman who had to read it out loud.

Just Stupid!!

OMG, these characters were totally unbelievable. The narrator made the main character sound like she might have limited intelligence; the pace and the way the book unfolds is more like fantasy. I could not finish this book because it was so bad.

Almost porn

I liked the characters and enjoyed the storyline. But the overly vulgar language and tons of gratuitous sex detracted from the story.

Got So Tired of the "F" Word

I am glad I paid a small amount for this book. Got one more-not sure I am going to listen. Needs some more substance.

A great beginning to a series!

I loved the story line and the family! I'm hoping that it is the first of many! It had drama and love and great Dom/sub sex !! That was hot and steamy!!! Fell in love with the boys and would love to watch them grow as a family!

No Ordinary Billionaire

Very good story, but could have done without the detailed sexual scenes. Very well written.

Badly written erotica masquerading as mystery fiction

If you are looking for clichéd characters and minimal plot interrupted by unnecessary and overly graphic sex scenes then this is the book for you. If, like me, you weren't looking for that, find a different book to listen to.

Not worth buying

The story plot was weak and lost to all the sex scenes, which weren’t very enjoyable to read, it was disjointed and shallow.
Sorry not for me if it had been full price or bought with a credit it would have been returned.
I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone. Quite the opposite

Not the best in this series

... But still enjoyable. Even by JSS's standards, there's a lot of sex and I eventually got a bit tired of it. I think it would have been better if it was more tightly edited and at least an hour shorter. EP narrates well, as always.

Put you to sleep novel

Very disappointing, gave up after 6 chapters. I Thought it would be a good read but it turned out to be smut. Possibly if I had kept on reading it may of actually turned out a detective story , but up to when I have up it was more about a relationship of two frustrated people and no action. The narrators voice drive me mad.

Wow!!

Any additional comments?

WOW!! I adored NO ORDINARY BILLIONAIRE and there is certainly nothing ordinary about Dante Sinclair! Despite his billionaire status, he is a homicide detective that is UBER alpha and all sorts of deliciousness packaged in an Adonis body! He is fiercely protective, loyal, and a dirty talker! Swoooon! And Sarah Baxter is not your typical heroine - she is crazy smart, level headed, and totally inexperienced in matters of the heart! I loved that Dante (like all of J.S. Scott's heroes) wanted Sarah as soon as he met her and didn't give up in his pursuit of her. As with all of Ms. Scott's books, the characters do not have any unnecessary dramas and misunderstandings. The narrative was AMAZING; the story had me captivated with an interesting side story to the main romance; and the banter between all the characters was witty. Without giving too much away, this book is the PERFECT blend of angst, drama, and of course scorching sexy times!!!!!! Ms. Scott's books never disappoint and left me with a happy, lovesick grin and goosebumps all over! 5+ EXTRAORDINARY STARS!!!!

More like no ordinary life? If only...

Nice to dream, not enough Dante’s in this world.

Nothing is left to the imagination. It’s way OTT with love scenes and trash talk. But then a bit of trash never hurt huh?
Good side story when they finally ‘came’ up for air.
