My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
Today I have gone back to one of my favourite re-reads I am reviewing it for the first time.
Given how many times I have read this (I didn’t keep track) if felt different reading this knowing that I was going to share it all with you. It took in the words in a different way and I felt the words in a new way. It was neither better, nor worse … just different.
The book is …
The Billionaire Wins the Game (Billionaire Bachelors 1) Melody Anne
Joseph Anderson has decided it’s time for his three successful sons to find brides. Joseph wants grandchildren to fill his mansion, and he wants them immediately. His eldest son, Lucas, is successful in all areas of his life, except love, and Joseph begins matchmaking. He finds Amy Harper and deems her the perfect daughter-in-law. He just needs to get her and Lucas to both realize they’re made for each other.
Lucas Anderson is wealthy, sexy, and stubborn. He has no desire to have any woman enter his life, causing chaos, or using his family’s name. Many women have tried, and he’s been successful in finding out who they are beneath their false smiles.
Amy Harper was raised in tragic circumstances and doesn’t like pampered, rich men who have been handed everything with a silver spoon. She spent years finishing her education and then received a job with the Anderson Corporation. She instantly doesn’t like her incredibly sexy boss, who is arrogant and thinks every woman should fall at his feet.
When Amy becomes pregnant after one reckless night of passion, she’s scared he’ll take the baby and run. Lucas is demanding, and used to getting his way, but Amy has just the right amount of spark to ignite his fuse, and challenges him each step of the way.
Lucas’s father, Joseph, and his brothers Alex and Mark, offer laughter, love, and support. With the love of Lucas’s family, who aren’t only rich and successful, but also kind and giving, Amy starts to realize that being wealthy doesn’t make or break a man, and starts to picture the happily ever after she never believed in for herself.
Overall I love this book and this type of story. It’s the type of story that you can read in a couple of hours, you don’t need to put a hundred percent effort into book like you do with some stories, where every little detail is important and the smallest details will be the MOST important thing in the entirety of the story.
This is a lot lighter than anything like that.
The romance is brilliant, spectacular and passionate. I love how Lucas and Amy are so against the relationship but are so perfect for each other.
I read this on my kindle app and I made one note right at the end. I simply wrote “It could do with more tension, more climax. It feels a bit like a rollercoaster with only one climb and fall and then you just coast to the end.” There didn’t seem to be enough little dips that lead up to the big one at the end. I knew right from the beginning where this was going.
I fully intend to read and review the rest of this series. I think this will be a bi-weekly thing (every other week, not twice a week) and we’ll see how we go. It will give me an excuse to dive into my collection of guilty pleasure reads.
