This is a very different take on billionaire romances! In this instance, Lily Bennett’s elderly husband died and chose to make her the CEO of his family business – much to the annoyance of one of her two step sons. Her husband had been ill for some time and there are secrets about their relationship that his sons are unaware of.
Lily is determined to rejuvenate the business and make it a success again but she’s not just up against her stepson, Russian billionaire Alexander Kazankov is also determined to take control of the business – but his reasons are to right a wrong he believer Lily’s husband made decades ago. Lily isn’t the pushover or fluffy airhead that everyone assumes. She’s a feisty, determined young lady who is out to prove to herself that she’s so much more but will the members of the board give her the chance to do so?
The attraction between Alexi and Lily is hot, their encounters range from steamy to laugh out loud hilarious but the angst and turmoil keep this story a real page turner and great read. It is only as details of their earlier life unfold that the reasons for their determination are revealed. However, there is another person secretly working to thwart them . . . . This is a story of opposites, a battle of wills – resistance v attraction, love v hostility.
I requested and received a copy of this novel, via NetGalley. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.
Billionaire Alexander Kazankov always wins. But he didn’t count on high-heeled, drop-dead sexy Lily Bennett getting in the way of his latest deal. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, not when he’s so close to making things right for his family.
Lily may walk and talk like a Southern piece of fluff, but she’s been underestimated before. She’s determined to succeed—and no entitled, arrogant asshole, especially the too-gorgeous-for-his-own-good-kind, is going to get in her way.
Oil meet water. Gasoline meet spark. It’s all out war as these two enemies go toe-to-toe in an ugly, take no prisoners battle to prove they’re the right choice to be CEO of the same company. All too soon playing dirty in the boardroom leads to playing even dirtier in the dark. It’s destined to end in personal and professional disaster. So whythe hell can’t they stop?
