Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Billionaires and Babies #1
Title: The Billionaire’s Legacy
Author: Reese Ryan
Publisher: Harlequin Desire
Published: October 2nd, 2018
This story is the first in the Billionaires and Babies series but it is also part of the Bourbon Brothers series, though you don’t have to have read any of the earlier stories in that series to appreciate this story which works great as a standalone IMHO.
In this story, Benjamin Bennett (Benji) had a crush on his sister’s best friend, Sloane Sutton, since he was ten years old and she was fifteen. Now he’s twenty-five, all grown up, a highly successful billionaire and back in town to attend his cousin’s wedding. Who should he spot at the reception but Sloane. Speaking to her, dancing with her, the spark is stronger than ever, their attraction volatile and irresistible as now she sees him as a man, not her friend’s younger brother. They have a steamy encounter before he jets off to Japan for six months. On his return he goes straight to see Sloane and discovers she’s six months pregnant with twins! Could this be the start of their HEA or will fate put too many obstacles in their path? You’ll have to read it to discover what happens next!
This is a lovely, heartwarming romance and the twins definitely make this different to the usual billionaire romances! Family history and attitudes are key to how Sloane and Benji react to each other and expectations. It is a great romance with brilliant characters and I really wanted to have serious words with Benji’s Mum – grr!! There are so many challenges to be faced by this couple, making it an entertaining story to escape into and one I have no hesitation in highly recommending to anyone who enjoys reading small town or billionaire romances.
I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
“Just for tonight.”
Until their chance reunion takes a sharp turn…toward twins.
Tech billionaire Benjamin Bennett can’t resist a steamy weekend with Sloane Sutton—his crush on her goes way back. But when he tracks her down, she’s pregnant—with twins!
Now their fling needs trust to survive. Benji wants a wedding; his family claims she’s a gold digger. But Sloane won’t be bought—or married. Can they find common ground…and a shot at forever?
