Bossman Billionaire by Kathie DeNosky
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Good story that kept my interest, but not as intense as I would like. The writing seemed a little basic, lacking some emotional depth that I hoped for. However, I am sucked into this series about a group of offspring from a rich playboy who went around planting his seed liberally, and the grandmother executive who is using her considerable means to make sure that they all have happy lives.
Luke was pretty clueless. He was all business. He had this great idea that he wanted an heir to train to take over his businesses. He approached his trusty Admin Assistant Hayley to research into hiring a surrogate, only to find that Tennessee laws precluded a non-married person from hiring one. Next plan was to ask Hayley to do it. Hayley, being an old fashioned girl, and deeply in love with her boss, came up with conditions that included marriage and joint custody, sure that her commitment shy boss would say no. He called her bluff and whisked her off to get married.
Of course, Luke is all business, and spends their wedding night in labor negotiations, instead of romancing his wife. He doesn't even buy her a ring. Poor Hayley. This husband really needs to go to husband school.
Most of this book shows Luke coming to the realization that his feelings for Hayley are quite deeper than he thought, and he'd loved her for a while, whereas Hayley spends her time trying to hide that she's deeply in love with her workaholic boss. And he wouldn't even introduce her as his wife. He still kept calling her by her maiden name and as his Admin Assistant! Boy, was Luke in for a wakeup call. He surely got one, too.
It was a pretty good book, and I'll continue this series. Overall rating: 3.5/5.0 stars.
