Publisher's Summary

For two years I held Vance Winters off...right up until the day my fiancé dumped me for his mistress and Vance kissed me senseless.

Vance Winters was six feet of dangerously beautiful mayhem. Wicked blue eyes, tousled blond hair, and golden skin covered in tattoos. Trouble. I should have taken one look and run in the other direction. I should have told him to take his job offer and shove it up his tight, perfect ass. I should have done a lot of things.

I won't lie. One touch of Vance's mouth to mine was better than all four years with my ex. I was tempted. So very tempted. Tempted, but not stupid. How many women had I escorted from his bed in the two years I'd worked for him? Vance didn't do commitment and I'd been tossed aside one time too many. There was no way I was going to throw my broken heart at his feet, even if I suspected the orgasms might be worth it.

Then she showed up. Rosalie. Only three months old, and she changed both of our lives in an instant. I could resist Vance when he was just my billionaire playboy boss. But could I keep my heart safe as I watched him fall in love with his daughter?

The Billionaire's Promise is a standalone romance with a happy ending. It's the fourth book in the Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaires series and reveals more about the notorious men of the Winters family. You can listen to it on its own, everything you need to know is explained, but once you get a taste of the Winters men you'll want to listen to the others.

AN ADDICTIVE & COMPELLING CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

Magnolia's business degree didn't quite cover all that her new boss Vance wanted her to do.. because the drool-worthy charismatic Playboy Billionaire businessman/Artist had a long list of things he expected from his new PA.. and her first job of the day was to get rid of his random nightly hookups. And, over the course of a couple of years, Magnolia did her job well, Vance and her became good friends, she resisted Vance's very 'abundant' charms and continued to date her loser/user boyfriend. Vance drank to drown the bloody memories created by his parent's brutal murders when he was only eight, and then his Aunt and Uncle's equally brutal murders shortly after. Vance's drinking eventually became an addiction and when one of his hookups nearly died of an overdose suddenly things weren't ok anymore.

Vance went to rehab and came back a changed man.. exercise had replaced the drink - however what was still there was his attraction to the off-limits Magnolia.. but then she became single again and Vance watched and waited for his chance. But before he could make his move Fate came a knocking at his door with a three month old daughter Vance never knew he had (no spoilers as it was in the summary) and seduction was lost to diapers, bottles, whispers and his tiny daughter's well-being. They'd become best friends and Magnolia quickly stepped in so together they learned how to be parents - however Vance still desperately wanted Magnolia and eventually he took his chance and their easy chemistry ignited. But a few words from the wrong people had Magnolia doubting, disillusioned and distraught because, after confronting Vance about his/her feelings, there was only one option left.

A very enjoyable well-paced storyline with a slow to develop romance. They were both well developed characters - Magnolia was in denial about her true feelings for Vance and he was far too cautious when it came to choosing the right time for seduction. It was sweet and funny to hear how Vance and Magnolia coped with baby Rosie's needs. There were tender scenes, passion, humor, sex, character development as Vance goes from manwhore to devoted dad, there's a manipulative ex and a little bit of angst in a love story that was primarily told from Magnolia's POV. Good narration by both narrators.. but I wish more chapters were done by Beckett Greylock who has a sexy swoon-worthy voice.

Worth a credit? I think this has been my favorite love story from the Winters family so far.. and YES creditworthy.

Not my favorite

I enjoyed this early, but it just fell a little flat midway and late for me. Maybe I’ve just heard enough of this series for now and need to take some time off before listening to the rest of them :-).

Good

I like the story but I just hate how the female just assume things or do not talk things out. To me its immature. Such low self esteem they fill not worthy or capable of taking thing as a grown up.

I didn't expect to like it

Right when it heard about there's a daughter in this story I was going to stop listening but I'm glad that I didn't because it was more then about a baby. I do have children I just get tired of listening to stories about "omg a surprise baby pop up" or "oh I have a kid and I it's your SURPRISE."

This story didn't do that and I'm glad I stocked it out to listen to it. Great narrating and writing. Now onto the next book 🤗

Great until the last five chapters

The story was fun at the start, Vance was interesting and hot, Magnolia was smart and funny, and I was excited to see how their romance would play out.
Unfortunately the plot goes increasing less interesting the more self pitying Magnolia gets. The back story of poor neglected Magnolia having parents who sent her to an English boarding school makes her wanting for anyone’s affection and only having her grandma who loved her and passed away naturally at 80 (is that supposed to be shocking?), does not make an overly sympathetic character. Then she realizes how in love she is with Vance, blindsides him with “why don’t you love me”, and when he doesn’t immediately drop to his knees declaring his undying love she freaks and goes through a ridiculous self pitying tantrum.
It’s a sad end to an otherwise intriguing story.
