Publisher's Summary

Josephine: It was the worst blind date in the history of the universe, until Holden Winters swept in and rescued me.

Are you kidding? Holden Winters?

A scion of the notorious Winters family, Holden is gorgeous, wealthy, and brilliant. He dates socialites and pop stars, not computer science grad students more comfortable in a hoodie than couture.

Our night together was a fantasy...and a huge mistake.

Holden: I don't usually steal other guy's dates. I don't have to. A look is all it takes, and the women fall over themselves to get to me. Then I saw Josephine, sitting with her dweeb of a date, just waiting for a man who could appreciate her lush curves and sharp brain. When she ghosted on me, I shouldn't have been so shocked, but women never walk away from me. Josephine thought she could call the shots - she didn't realize that a Winters man always gets what he wants. And I wanted her.

The Billionaire's Secret Heart is a standalone romance with a happy ending. It's the first in the Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaires series, and introduces the notorious men of the Winters family. You can listen to it on its own, but you'll want to listen to the others once you get a taste of the Winters men.

IT WAS SHORT, SWEET & A BIT YA.. BUT OKAY

At 2 hrs 36 mins this is a short listen and one that doesn't go into great detail as Tech Grad Student Josephine meets one of the younger famous Winters offspring, has a sexy two night stand, suffers rejection and heartbreak over a misunderstanding/outside interference.. and falls in love - all within a week!! Holden Winters is a successful businessman, a rich f... em 'n leave em Playboy and half owner of a trendy Nightclub which is where he rescues a blonde bombshell from a blind date from Hell.. and ends up inviting her into his bed, into his life and into his heart.

In such a very short story you can't expect much depth, much drama and for not a lot of time to have elapsed before the h//h 'got together' - and this listen was pretty much insta everything. Sadly, only two of the eleven chapters were from Holden's POV. I don't usually do such short listens but it was fairly enjoyable and this 1st book of the Scandals Of The Bad Boys Billionaires series gives a good taster into two of the men of Ivy Layne's Winters clan.. and, for $4.86, it delivered all that I was expecting.

woman you owe him nothing

there is nothing wrong with walking away from a one night stand where you guys didn't even exchange numbers or full names. you shouldn't feel guilty for that.

on a different note, poor grammar, diction, and vocabulary. it felt juvenile and the characters were shallowly written. I didn't finish it.

however, this writer has potential and should keep writing. the story had potential.

Fast, Furious, Fun

I didn't think a story this short could be compact and complete. It even gives you a hint of next in series along with the HEA.

Grad Student and A Billionaire

A short but fun discovery of romance between a grad student who is on a horrible blind date and meets a man that draws her in.
The billionaire has had a lot of loss in his life and being rich has been wary of entanglements...but he has found what may mean more.
Great narration..CJ Bloom always has a fun lilt to her voice that brings pure enjoyment to the story. Grey lock has a deep and commanding voice perfect for the story.
Looking forward to the next story!

good but could have been so much better

The story need more depth. the middle to end ran together like a student on a deadline for a paper. The cover photo needs to be redone since the main character has blonde hair, did anyone read this book before picking a cover?

Short, insta techie love.

A chance meeting at an exclusive club leading to an explosive one night stand that gets caught up in feels: for each other and a bit of jealousy on the outside.

I enjoyed the heroine and her roomie being super smart women. I love that.

The insta-love was cute and the twist with the phone was predictable, but I liked how other characters were involved. The story just felt rushed.

I’m a fan of CJ Bloom and I’m pretty new to Beckett Greylock. If anything, Beckett wasn’t in this a lot, but the narration very good. Made the book good.
