Clare's STRANDED WITH A BILLIONAIRE is powerfully told with lots and lots of steam and heat but I sometimes sat there and said really? since the story was farfetched at times. My interest was held throughout by wanting to live vicariously through Brontë. The resourcefulness of both Logan and Brontë during and after the hurricane that hits the island kept my interest as they struggled to wait it out. The descriptions throughout were vivid and growing up in New York the descriptions and vibrancy of the city was well captured. Brontë felt inferior after finding out who Logan was and had a lot of insecurities to work through since she was so far out of her league and was oftentimes naive in her approach to life. He could be abrupt to get his way and Brontë didn't usually take to it too kindly. They were definitely molded by their past and the way they each grew up. There were lots of friends, business associates, secrets, happiness, sadness, tears, laughter, angst, dismay and lots of chemistry, romancing and love. Ultimately there was a happily ever after. There was an epilogue that tied the story together nicely and gave good closure but I know we'll see them all in future books in the series. The excerpt in the back of the book for BEAUTY AND THE BILLIONAIRE whet my appetite for more.
This is the first book in the BILLIONAIRE BOYS CLUB SERIES and I look forward to reading the others, BEAUTY AND THE BILLIONAIRE, THE WRONG BILLIONAIRE'S BED, ONCE UPON A BILLIONAIRE and ROMANCING THE BILLIONAIRE. The sixth book is still untitled. I look forward to reading all the books in this series.
