Publisher's Summary

Playboy, billionaire, and adventurer Jonathan Lyons lives life on the edge. When he hears that his mentor, Dr. Phineas DeWitt, had a secret journal that leads to a legendary artifact, Jonathan takes action. It stirs his blood, but it comes with a heady challenge: DeWitt's daughter Violet. She has what Jonathan needs. And she's not giving it up to the man who broke her heart.

Violet is Jonathan's weakness - he's still in love despite their volatile breakup a decade ago. But Violet's memories have a sharper edge. She has never forgiven him for abandoning her - or so she thought. When Jonathan's attentions turn seductive, she's in danger of falling for him all over again. And she can't help but wonder…. does he really want her, or just what she's hiding? Contains mature themes.

Not the best of the series

I absolutely loved the entire billionaire boys club series and couldn't wait to get my hands on this, book 5. Sadly it wasn't anywhere near as good as the others. The love scenes were way way way to drawn out and if I had to hear one more time how she liked to be ...... well, let's just say there is one thing she likes and she talks about it a lot. :P

I have a new author to look for. I'm a new fan

Book 5 story was interesting & was a good romance story. It added to the storyline be introducing Jonthan. The narrator wasn't bad as other reviews said. I'm glad I got the book. I enjoyed it.

Irritating

I enjoyed the earlier books in the series but couldn’t finish this one. I didn’t warm up to Violet and wanted to tell her to quit dithering and trust Jonathan over the father that disappointed her and lied to her! Jonathan came across as weak - I don’t need an alpha male in a romance book but a bit more backbone would be nice. The narrator is adequate - not my favorite but does a fairly good job.

Excellent book

I honestly didn’t think the author could top Audrey’s story. I loved it but this one was just as good. I love the story. Everyone in the series has its own twist but the story of love, loss, & sex is the same. Truly steamy & wonderful

The poorest one in the series

Way too much sex and not enough story. This book is so disappointing. Potentially this book could have rocked! Instead this is a lukewarm not worth the time. Sexually very explicit. And the descriptions went on forever!

OMG!!! I was so disappointed with this book.

This book really did not stand up to the other books in this series. It seemed like the author was trying to force a plausible romantic story. Story line was not bad but the way the story was told was awful. The narrator even seemed like she was not feeling this story either. The love scenes were too long and the overall quality was poor.

SPOILED BY THE NARRATION.... WHICH SUCKED

Sometimes, when the narrator is so bad, it's hard to judge whether the book was good or not because it's so hard to get into the story. I've listened to the other four books in this series all narrated by JM but I truly don't know what happened to her while narrating this one coz she was awful, it was a painful listen and, in the end, I couldn't tell who was talking.

The story was ok, nothing special, lots of sex and dirty talking, Heroine was annoying as Hell and the actual plot wasn't bad.

Worth a credit? If I wasn't already into this series then I'd have to say no because of the sh*t narration! however I am following the series so I accept having to use a credit. There is one more bachelor billionaire left but sadly, before I use a credit on it, I'm going to have to listen to the Sample first and if she sounds like this then I won't bother with it - end of series or not.

STORY OK ! NARRATION NOT !

I liked the story ok, but the narration was a bit difficult to get through. If I had not already been following this series and like Jessica Clare, I would not have struggled through. The male and female voices were exactly the same in some of the narration and too close to the same to enjoy the difference in others. The same narrator was used for all of the books but she just didn't work this time.
