Billionaire Bad Boys: Rich, Powerful and sexy as hell.
Derek West rose from poverty to take the tech world by storm. He's sexy, confident and gets any woman he wants. And who he wants is Cassie Storm, the rich girl he's never been good enough for.
She's desperate to save her family company and there's only one man who can help. But Derek isn't interested in helping. He wants to possess both the company and the woman he's never been able to forget.
His plan? To screw her out of his head. Except once he's had a taste of Cassie, he doesn't want to let her go. Her family remembers where he came from, and they won't allow it. When the truth about their pasts comes to light, though, it may be Cassie who's going down hard.
Carly Phillips is a one-click author for me. In fact, she has been before one "clicked" to buy books because I have always been drawn to her writing style, her characters and the stories she tells.
She writes about real people, about people you get to know in the books, about people who react the way you think they will...and this is a challenge. In order to create a character this 3-dimensional, there is a lot of work that has to happen. Although, she makes it look easy and this keeps mecoming back to her work.
Derek and Cassie were no exception. I loved who they are now, I thought their past history with one another was compelling. And, more important, I loved that they listened to one another. There was drama, there was the potential for misunderstandings...and I think a weaker author would have gone with that. Instead, Ms. Phillips lets her characters lead, lets them tell the story, and we are all better for it at the end.
If the rating wasn't enough of a clue, I would think it is clear that I loved this book. There are appearances from other characters in the book, and this is the 3rd in the series. While it definitely can be read as a standalone, I think the depth gained by knowing the other men Derek works with is something I recommend.
Along with the book. I recommend the book.
